Tue, 12/06/2016 - 07:09

When The Secret Life of Pets was released this summer, no one quite expected it to be the juggernaut it became, earning nearly $900 million at the box office. Then again, who wouldn't relate to a movie about pets and what they do when their owners are gone? The story follows Max (Louis C.K.), a spoiled terrier who doesn’t like his owner’s new adoptee, the giant and unruly Duke (Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet). But when they find themselves stranded on the New York City...

Mon, 12/05/2016 - 11:44

When Fandango sat down to chat with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story star Alan Tudyk about what it was like to portray the newest Star Wars droid -- and total scene stealer -- K-2SO, we joked that there must be some mandate now for him to star in almost every single Disney movie. "it's one I'm trying to push," he joked. "Because I want to get in one of the Marvel movies!"  Not only has Tudyk provided voice work on recent hits like Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph,...

Tom Cruise Faces an Ancient Evil in First 'The Mummy' Trailer

Sun, 12/04/2016 - 19:27

When most people think of The Mummy, they likely think of the tongue-in-cheek, Brendan Fraser-starring reboot from the late '90s that was less a horror movie and more of a family adventure that went for laughs instead of scares. But when The Mummy first emerged back in 1932, it was unmistakably a horror movie about a young woman stalked by the reanimated corpse of an ancient Egyptian prince.  So when a reboot of The Mummy hits theaters on June 9, 2017, it already has the...

Sat, 12/03/2016 - 17:53

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 may be the world's most anticipated entry in a franchise that most people didn't even know was a thing just two years ago. Before hitting the big screen, the Guardians of the Galaxy were a pretty niche team confined to comic books and animated kids shows. But then writer-director James Gunn came along and made a movie about them; a movie that very, very quickly became one of the most beloved Marvel movies and a box office phenomenon to boot, raking in even...

Thu, 12/01/2016 - 21:24

More than 35 years ago, John Carpenter's Escape from New York opened quietly in less than 600 theaters nationwide. Overshadowed by box office titans Superman II, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Stripes that week, Carpenter's follow-up to The Fog nonetheless benefited from good word of mouth and soon earned a favored place in the hearts of genre fans around the world.

'Rampage' Director Brad Peyton Teases Dwayne Johnson's Special Creature Relationship

Thu, 12/01/2016 - 16:08

Rampage is a 1986 arcade game where players control one of three giant monsters trying to rack up points by destroying cities while avoiding being shot at by tanks and helicopters. There is a very, very thin setup for it all involving a lab whose experiments mutated three people into the giant gorilla, lizard and wolf, but it's otherwise a totally plotless arcade game.  That gives the minds behind the big screen adaptation of the game plenty of leeway when turning it into a movie....

2004's Napoleon Dynamite was one of the biggest success stories out of the Sundance Film Festival, launching careers for Jon Heder (Napoleon), Efren Ramirez (Pedro) and writer-director Jared Hess. It's also one of those rare hits that permeated popular culture in a huge way and yet they never produced a sequel... until now... ... kind of.
