This weekend saw a brutal showdown between Liam Neeson, the current god of action cinema, and Jesus Christ, the current god of millions of human beings. Since the box office is a "two may enter, but only one may leave" type showdown, the victory ultimately went to Mr. Neeson and 'Non-Stop,' which edged out the son of God and his movie, uh, 'Son of God' to win the weekend.
Did you know that when he's not rampaging through cities and laying waste to the countryside, the legendary beast known as Godzilla is actually a really cool guy who likes to party, hang out with his buddies and play a mean game of ping pong? That's the one joke in a new Snickers ad, but thankfully, it's a very funny one that makes the most of its absurd imagery.
Although 'Anchorman 2' wasn't groundbreaking at the box office even being a more moderately budgeted comedy, it did make significantly more than its beloved 2004 predecessor. So, could there be an 'Anchorman 3' somewhere down the line? As far as co-writer and director Adam McKay is concerned ... No. Never. Ever.
It's a good thing people really like Spider-Man because he's the one thing Sony seems to be relying on at the multiplex. Although the studio fell on rough times these past few years, 2012's 'The Amazing Spider-Man' was a big hit and this year's 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' looks ready to rock the box, as well. But how much Spidey will audiences tolerate before they pull a J. Jonah Jameson and declare him a menace? Well, the folks at Sony are ready to push their luck on that front with plans to release one Spider-Man movie a year for the foreseeable future.
Any pop culture aficionado of a certain age will remember the dueling video game fandoms of the 1990s. You were either a Nintendo person or a Sega person, and death to the morons who thought differently! However, the drama between suburban living rooms had nothing on the drama behind the scenes, where the young Sega company fought tooth and nail to compete with Nintendo, who had a stranglehold on the video game industry. This fascinating story is about to become a book called 'Console Wars' and that book will become a movie by way of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
In the final stretch of 'X-Men: First Class,' Nicholas Hoult's Hank McCoy ended up accelerating his powerful mutation, transforming him into the hairy blue monster known to comic book fans as Beast. That's why it was so odd when Hoult started popping up in set pictures and in trailers for 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' in his human form with nary a single blue fur to be found. If you're big ol' nerds like us and want to know why this is the case, know that the film does offer an explanation ... and it feels awfully familiar.
We feel bad for everyone involved with the upcoming remake of 'The Raid.' Then again, they brought this uphill battle on themselves when they set out to make an American version of the wildest, craziest and most giddily violent action movie of the past decade. We feel especially bad for Patrick Hughes, who is currently in negotiations to direct the westernized version.
After months of rumors and auditions from seemingly every up-and-coming actor in Hollywood, the rebooted 'Terminator 5,' officially titled 'Terminator: Genesis,' finally found its Kyle Reese. Australian actor Jai Courtney landed the role, which will see him appearing alongside franchise star Arnold Schwarzenegger and 'Game of Thrones' breakout Emilia Clarke.
'Ride Along' is still in theaters and still raking in the big bucks at the box office, but 'Ride Along 2' is already in the works. To be more specific, the sequel is eyeing a summer shoot and a 2015 release date, making this one of the fastest turnarounds for a sequel we've ever seen.
When 'RoboCop' got pushed from an August 2013 release date to February 2014, everyone assumed it would open stronger when far away from the busy summer months. If this is the better of the two options, then we can't even imagine how poorly it would have opened in the warmer months. The remake of the 1987 classic is definitely not a disaster, but it most certainly underperformed.
It's been a rough decade for John Travolta, and his self-destructive slide looks to continue now that he's signed on to voice the lead character in a Gummy Bears movie. For that reason, we have a hard time believing that he's spoken to the James Bond franchise producers about playing a villain in a future film, but according to a recent interview, he claims that such meetings have occurred and have been fruitful.
