Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice had quite the weekend — not only did it break the March opening record previously held by The Hunger Games, but with $424 million worldwide, Zack Snyder’s epic now boasts the highest opening weekend for a Warner Bros. superhero movie. All those negative reviews predictably had zero effect on audiences, who flocked to see the long-awaited showdown between the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel.
The holidays are winding down and we’re heading into the new year with a whole new schedule of films hitting theaters in 2015. January kicks us off with plenty of movie options to help you escape the winter blues, including anticipated releases like ‘Taken 3' and ‘Blackhat,’ as well as more action, adventure, and even a couple of family friendly releases. Read on for our guide to the new movie releases coming to a theater near you in January 2015.
In a completely tragic and unfathomable turn of events, beloved actor and comedian Robin Williams has died at the age of 63. Williams was found in his home in California earlier today, as confirmed by the Marin County Sheriff's department.
By now you've seen a ton of those "Look Back" videos on Facebook, which makes it look like pretty much all of your friends and loved ones have died and Facebook has done them the morbid courtesy of making a nice obituary montage. Fun! If you're anything like us, you've been ignoring the hell out of them, but here's one you shouldn't ignore: a Look Back video for Walter White of 'Breaking Bad,' which tracks Mr. White's sordid history on the show with humor and plenty of hashtags. Enjoy!
If you're like some of us around here, you mostly watch the Super Bowl for the hilarious commercials and the awesome new movie trailers. But there's one you won't be seeing on TV: Scarlett Johansson's Super Bowl commercial for SodaStream, which was banned from airing during the upcoming game.
The holiday season is in full swing -- and so is winter. What better way to avoid the chill than by camping out indoors next to the warm glow of your television with some great movies? There's a whole new batch of titles headed to Netflix Instant, from modern classics to old favorites. Read on for our guide to the best movies coming to Netflix this December.
Seems there is no moratorium on sequels as, just in time for the holidays, comes news that the Jimmy Stewart classic 'It's a Wonderful Life' is getting a sequel. Nope, not a remake, but a sequel, since apparently we didn't get the full story the first time around. The new film, titled 'It's a Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story' (original!) will follow the grandson of Stewart's character.
There's been a lot of speculation over whether J.J. Abrams and Disney could reach an agreement over the release date of 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' with Abrams recently scrapping Michael Arndt's script to rework the story and characters. But now we have official confirmation that the latest entry in the 'Star Wars' franchise will indeed be released on December 18, 2015, putting it right up against Duncan Jones' 'Warcraft.'
Zack Snyder did some filming on Saturday night in L.A. for 'Batman vs. Superman,' which is what Warner Bros. themselves referred to as the title. The filming took place at a football game, set up at Weingart Stadium, which serves as the set of the Gotham City University home stadium. The Gotham City team, in black and gold, was playing against the Metropolis State University team, in red and white. If we've learned anything from 'The Dark Knight Rises,' no football game is safe as long as Batman is around.
We've been wondering for a while who would be playing the iconic role of evil villain Shredder in the upcoming 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' reboot, but it seems the role has belonged to William Fichtner for some time now.
Universal has released a new clip from its upcoming animated film 'Despicable Me 2.' In the clip above, Steve Carell's villainous Gru character and his companion, voiced by the amazing Kristen Wiig, get a little rescue help from those adorable minions. The tiny yellow guys get into their typical shenanigans behind the wheel of a car. Watch out Vin Diesel, the minions may be coming for your 'Fast and Furious' job.
