There was much fanboy rejoicing when is was learned that Lawrence Kasdan was on board to write a new 'Star Wars' spin-off movie and consult on 'Star Wars Episode 7.' After all, this is the man who wrote 'The Empire Strikes Back,' a movie that isn't just the best 'Star Wars' movie, but one of the best science fiction movies ever made. Although the full details of whatever Kasdan is working on (a Yoda movie? Young Han Solo?) are buried in an underground bunker somewhere, he recently spoke about his involvement in the new films.
Is Melissa McCarthy a movie star yet? The opening weekend of 'Identity Thief' suggests that yes, she is. After all, all of those people weren't flocking to this movie because of Jason Bateman (as delightful as he is). Anyway, all of this pretty much means that McCarthy's asking price just doubled.
We knew that Marvel has longterm plans for their movie universe, but we didn't know they were this longterm. It turns out that they're not just thinking about 'Iron Man 3,' 'Thor: The Dark World,' 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and the second 'Avengers' movie -- they're already thinking about a third 'Avengers' movie...and the major role The Hulk will play in the coming films. The following news will be nothing new to comic fans, but casual viewers should know that this is pretty major SPOILER territory.
Eventually, the popular opinion on zombies is going to shift and people are going to stop watching 'The Walking Dead' and buying zombie-themed video games, but that day is not today. People still love zombies and if the opening weekend is any indication, they love 'Warm Bodies.'
When 'The Fast and the Furious' came out in 2001, it was a hit, but it certainly wasn't enough of a hit for anyone to predict that it would spawn five increasingly successful and popular sequels. With 'Fast & Furious 6' hitting theaters in a few months, it has the tough job of living up to the massively successful 'Fast Five,' but with much of the cast and director Justin Lin returning, we have a good feeling about it. Although you'll get the first trailer during the Super Bowl tomorrow, you can start getting excited by taking a look at the first teaser poster.
Well, 'Transformers 4' is happening and Michael Bay is directing it and there's nothing the franchise's detractors can do stop it. All anyone can do now is wonder how long it'll take them to name it 'Tr4nsformers.' However, it looks like the next entry in the series will be a completely different experience...at least that's what Bay is saying.
Make no mistake: this was a slow and bad weekend at the box office, an example of the January doldrums at their absolute worst. However, this was probably the only environment where a film titled 'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters' could have flourished, so at least someone is happy.
Unless you've been living under a rock, you've heard the news: JJ Abrams is officially directing 'Star Wars: Episode VII.' Even if you didn't hear it, you surely felt the rumble that shook the entire planet after the news caused the entire internet to break in half. While fans and critics alike debated what this meant for the 'Star Wars' franchise, another question arose. With Abrams departing for a galaxy far far away, what was going to happen to the 'Star Trek' franchise?
We knew that 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' was going to be a time travel story that would somehow merge the universes of the original 'X-Men' films and 'X-Men: First Class,' but the most recent casting news suggests something more epic than we could have possibly imagined. A cavalcade of past mutant superheroes have officially joined the cast, deepening an already absurdly great ensemble.
Eight years after the release of the original, the sequel to 'Sin City' is officially on the way and casting big names left and right. Since much of 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' will take place prior to the first, that means we'll see the return of many characters who have no reason to still be breathing...including Bruce Willis' Detective Hartigan.
Welcome back, SNL! Everyone's simultaneously beloved and hated live sketch comedy show returned last night after its holiday break and, naturally, they had to play catch-up, making fun of everything that they missed in the past couple of weeks. First on their list? 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.' Or rather, its eighteen sequels.
Despite much critical hype, Matthew Vaughn's 'Kick-Ass' was only a modest success at the box office. While it didn't make a lot of money, it made plenty of fans and sold a lot of DVDs and here we are: 'Kick-Ass 2' hits this summer and our first look at the film has arrived. And yes, that is Jim Carrey.
