Which would you expect to win the Fourth of July weekend: the Disney-produced, Johnny Depp-starring revival of an iconic American hero or the sequel to a French-made, Steve Carell-starring animated movie about a lovable supervillain? Well, it looks like American audiences simply aren't interested in westerns, even the uber-expensive ones starring Captain Jack Sparrow with a bird on his head. 'Despicable Me 2' destroyed 'The Lone Ranger' over the holiday weekend. Like, totally wrecked it. Mercilessly.
A full-length 'Delivery Man' trailer has debuted, and only time will tell if it's better than the Google advertisement that was Vince Vaughn's last movie, 'The Internship.' But if we're going by first impressions, the new flick looks like it'll be the far superior effort.
What happens when two new releases that look like sure-things smash into the unstoppable wall that is a Pixar movie? Well, you get one second place hit and one severe disappointment. 'The Heat' still looks good next to the continued success of 'Monsters University,' but it made 'White House Down' stumbling at the starting line look all the more horrible.
Now that 'Iron Man 3' has officially passed the $400 million mark at the box office, Tony Stark's third solo adventure is just about to leave theaters and head straight to your home media collection. In a few months, you'll be able to purchase Shane Black's delightful superhero adventure for yourself on DVD and Blu-ray, but will it be worth it? Marvel has released the details of the package to help you decide if the special features will push this one into the "must buy" column for you.
Zombies may be really hot right now, but there's one thing that is (and probably always will be) a bigger deal: Pixar. Brad Pitt's 'World War Z' performed quite well in its opening weekend, but even the biggest zombie movie of all time couldn't keep pace with 'Monsters University.'
Other than the trademark red underwear being removed, Superman's costume in 'Man of Steel' was remarkably close to the classic design. Blue suit, red cape, red "S" on yellow shield and so on. However, some newly released concept art for the film reveals that this traditional approach was only one of many options explored by director Zack Snyder and his army of designers. Can you imagine a black and white Superman costume? How about one with no cape?
Anyone who was on the internet in the years leading up to the first 'Star Wars' prequel is probably getting a strong sense of deja vu right now. There is no bigger movie event on the horizon than 'Star Wars: Episode 7' and so every morsel of detail, every tiny leak and every seemingly insignificant rumor is a cause for alarm/celebration/heated discussion. Today, fans have something new to chew on yet: a casting breakdown that describes some of the film's new characters. And this is the real deal.
When George Lucas handed the reins of 'Star Wars' over to Disney, it was understood that the man behind the most popular science fiction universe of all time would only be involved in 'Star Wars: Episode 7' in a limited capacity. However, we didn't realize just how limited it was! Lucas recently spoke out about his involvement in 'Star Wars: Episode 7' and revealed that he hasn't spoken to director J.J. Abrams. Like, at all.
After months of feverish anticipation and a marketing campaign that left everyone at ScreenCrush practically speechless, 'Man of Steel' has arrived (amidst a flurry of mixed reviews) and taken its place at the top of the box office chart. Although the latest Superman film broke June box office records, it's yet to be seen whether or not the film is truly prepared for the long road ahead.
One of the great joys of the Marvel movie universe has been watching the various characters and storylines overlap and converge in surprising and exciting ways. However, fans shouldn't get too excited about a potential 'Avengers' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy' crossover anytime soon. According to Joss Whedon, that isn't happening. (At least not yet.)
We've all had that teacher at least once in our lives. You know the one. The oddball. The eccentric. The one whose bizarre worldview and teaching methods have a lasting (and not always positive) impact on his or her students. However, the award for the year's strangest teacher undoubtedly has to go to Jean-Baptiste Clément, a sixth grade math teacher who subjected his students to James Wan's horror film 'Saw.'
