'Machete Kills,' Robert Rodriguez's follow-up to 2010's 'Machete,' ditches the grindhouse aesthetic and homage, and instead tries to emulate a late-'80s, early-'90s action flick -- basically, Rodriguez made the kind of movie he often makes. The result is an uninspired, joyless and oft-trashy exercise in self-indulgence. Rodriguez has spent his career making films the way he wants in his own backyard, and while you kind of have to admire the audacity of it all, the intent is questionable at best.
James Wan's 'Insidious: Chapter 2' opened at $41 million over the weekend -- for a film that only cost around $5 million to make, that's a massive success. Combine that with his $40 million opening for this summer's 'The Conjuring' (making it one of the most successful horror films of all time), and James Wan has become the horror master. FilmDistrict agrees, and the studio is already moving ahead with 'Insidious 3.'
Known for his work in the horror genre, James Wan has stepped behind the camera for something a little more action-packed with 'Fast and Furious 7.' We've gotten a peek at some of the interesting new cars being used in the film, but now star Vin Diesel is giving us a sneak preview of his own with these new photos of his character Dom (alongside co-star Paul Walker) on the set of the sequel.
Just as talk is reigniting about the use of phones and electronic devices during screenings thanks to one movie blogger's instantly notorious call to (and inappropriate use of) 911 at the Toronto International Film Festival, Disney has announced that they'd like to encourage you to bring your iPads to the theater. For their upcoming re-release of 'The Little Mermaid,' the studio wants you and your kiddos to bring your iPads to screenings for a special interactive experience. Oh brother.
At long last, our national nightmare is over: Universal and Focus Features have found their lead (well, one of them, anyway) for the upcoming adaptation of 'Fifty Shades of Grey.' Dakota Johnson of 'The Social Network' has been cast as Anastasia Steele, the college student who enters into a dominant/submissive relationship with enigmatic businessman Christian Grey because fairy tales do come true, or something.
Ever since the title 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' was revealed by Marvel and Joss Whedon at Comic-Con 2013 last month, there's been a lot of talk of how this epic villain will be handled for his big-screen translation. Now it seems we've gotten some (vague) answers from Whedon himself, who opened up about the difference between comic book Ultron and movie Ultron.
Like the puzzling "adaptation" of 'What to Expect When You're Expecting,' long-running inspirational book series 'Chicken Soup for the Soul' will now also become a film (and possible TV series), for all the moms out there who are looking for a new, unoffensive and wholesome movie to cry at.
Even at 71, Harrison Ford is still game to play action heroes -- earlier today we learned that Ford is game for another 'Indiana Jones' film, and while that might not happen, there's another action franchise that's willing to take him in. It seems Ford has joined the cast of 'The Expendables 3,' if Sylvester Stallone is to be believed.
It was announced at Comic-Con 2013 that the sequel to 'Man of Steel' will feature a Batman vs. Superman fight in the vein of Frank Miller's graphic novel 'The Dark Knight Returns,' so the big question is, of course, who will play Batman? The script for Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel 2' is still being written, so it's a bit early for Warner Bros. to start meeting with prospective actors for the role, but sources claim they have a few ideas.
'Revenge of the Nerds' is easily one of the greatest comedies of all time. Released in 1984, the film follows a group of nerdy friends as they navigate the treacherous social waters of college. It's been almost 30 years since this classic film hit theaters, so let's take a look back at the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
We're just a couple of weeks away from the premiere of the final season of 'Breaking Bad' -- or the final half of it, anyway. The latest teaser for the upcoming premiere goes minimalist, with the camera panning over dusty and familiar landscapes, featuring objects that have become iconic for the series: the RV, Heisenberg's hat, etc.
