Movie News

SATURDAY AM UPDATE: No big surprises this weekend after yesterday's results as Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales led the way on Friday with an estimated $23.5 million heading toward an anticipated $62+ million three-day and $76+ million four-day, holiday weekend. In second is Paramount's Baywatch, which kicked off its holiday run on Thursday with $4.6 million, brought in an estimated $5.7 million and is looking at a rather disappointing three-day in the mid-to-high teens ...

Wonder Woman may be known for her Lasso of Truth, but the character has also used a sword and shield in combat. Watch this awesome video of a team of metal workers forge their very own shield just like the one in the Wonder Woman movie.

Can you imagine calling these famous movies by a different name?
We're now only one week away from the theatrical bow of one of this year's most highly-anticipated comic book movies, and the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures' burgeoning cinematic universe. Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot and Chris Pine and directed by Patty Jenkins, is already getting positive buzz ahead of its release, with a lot of fans and observers hoping that it will be the first true, critical hit of the franchise that includes Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Suicide Squad. The character of Wonder Woman finally earning her well-deserved place at the table for big summer blockbusters has been a long time coming, but one of the character's most prominent stories outside comics came in another cinematic effort...

James Gunn and the Guardians of the Galaxy Mission: BREAKOUT Ride
James Gunn posted a thank you message to everyone he worked with on the new Guardians of the Galaxy- Mission: BREAKOUT! ride.
The bar for this sequel was set so high because of how great the first one turned out in 2014. We discuss if 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2' lived up to expectations or is just another fun but forgettable marvel movie.
Big wins for Russia's Andrei Zvyagintsev, Lynne Ramsay's 'You Were Never Really Here', Yorgos Lanthimos' 'The Killing of a Sacred Deer', and Diane Kruger as well.

Disney’s new Marvel-themed attraction, Guardians Of The Galaxy—Mission: Breakout!, finally opened at the California Adventure park this weekend, with The Hollywood Reporter saying that some fans had to wait in line for as long as seven hours just to experience what is essentially a glorified new coat of paint on the old Twilight Zone Tower Of Terror ride. Of course, it also has a brand new narrative component, with Rocket Raccoon leading guests through the fortress of Benicio Del Toro’s Collector from the first Guardians movie in an attempt to rescue the other Guardians from a trap while listening to classic rock songs and enjoying various Marvel easter eggs, so maybe the riders willing to wait all day just to spend a few minutes flying through space actually just wanted to avoid spoilers.

Whatever the reason, the ride is clearly a hit, and Walt Disney Parks And ...

It’s often the case that biopic films are judged by their adherence to the facts of the actual stories on which they are based. It would then stand to reason that the more accurate the filmic depiction, the better the movie. Right? Not necessarily. While creative license is often met with resistance, sometimes biopics benefit […]

Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales led the way this Memorial Day weekend while Paramount's Baywatch struggled to match expectations. Meanwhile, Disney's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues to deliver while the studio's Beauty and the Beast became only the eighth film to cross $500 million domestically. Overall, the weekend was down ~15% compared to Memorial Day weekend last year when both X-Men: Apocalypse and Alice Through the Looking Glass delivered underwhelmi...
It's a tight race at the top as weekend estimates have Alien: Covenant holding a narrow lead over Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 for the #1 spot at the weekend box office. Considering Guardians has been underestimated the past two weekends by $1.46 million and $2.25 million, tomorrow afternoon's actuals will be something to look out for as less than $1 million separates the two films. Meanwhile, WB and MGM's Everything, Everything delivered on the high end of industry expectations while Fox...
Cannes Film Festival saw a number of well-received films this year, awarding Sofia Coppola as Best Director for her new film, The Beguiled.

When we meet Captain Jack Sparrow for the first time at the beginning of Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, the notorious pirate has already lived an interesting life, one we've learned a lot about over the years.

Early today, Pedro Almodóvar and his Cannes jury announced the winners at the film festival’s annual awards ceremony, but since it wouldn’t be the Cannes awards without some surprises, they threw in a couple of bonus awards just for fun. Specifically, Nicole Kidman was awarded a special prize simply for ubiquity, with her appearing in four projects: The Killing Of A Sacred Deer, The Beguiled, the second season of Top Of The Lake, and the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s How To Talk To Girls At Parties. The other bonus came in the screenplay category, with the jury giving the award to both The Killing Of A Sacred Deer and You Were Never Really Here in a rare tie.

The Best Actress prize went to Diane Kruger for In The Fade, Best Actor went to Joaquin Phoenix for You Were Never Really Here, and Best Director went to ...
