Tue, 08/25/2015 - 09:53

Nintendo recently revealed that the company has finally gotten over the sting that was 1993's Super Mario Bros. and has now opened the door to letting more movies get made using the stable of video game characters it owns.

Max Landis Says 'American Ultra 2' Would Be a Kristen Stewart Action Movie

Tue, 08/25/2015 - 09:51

Despite being a fun, original action movie and what some are actually calling the best on-screen romance of the year, American Ultra didn't exactly light it up at the box office this weekend. Its weak sixth-place finish and $5.5 million probably won't get it a sequel (unless the international box office smokes the competition), but that doesn't mean writer Max Landis isn't already thinking about the further adventures of potheads-turned-assassins Mike (Jesse Eisenberg) and Phoebe...

Wait for It: 8 Fun Films Worth Watching Through the Credits

Mon, 08/24/2015 - 05:00

When my mother took me to the movies as a little girl it was mostly a chance to have an adventure together. But sometimes it was about staying in the cool air conditioning for as long as possible before venturing back out into a hot Florida day. As part of prolonging the movie-enjoying experience, we always stayed to watch the credits of every film. At first I was annoyed by it. What little kid wouldn’t be? I didn’t really understand what the massive scroll of names meant as they...

Going to the Movies with Mom and Meryl Streep

Mon, 08/24/2015 - 05:00

A few months ago I was at the movies and I saw the very first trailer for Ricki and the Flash. As soon as I saw Meryl Streep up on the big screen, I smiled. I knew immediately, without watching anything else in the trailer, I would be buying my ticket and going to this film. The studio could have saved the trouble of putting together a trailer as far as I was concerned.  All they needed to do was put up the words, “Meryl Streep is going to be in a new movie.” That’s...

After this week's big news about the iconic Goonies house being covered up to keep fans away, is there anyone who likes the idea of buying a movie location?

Watch: 'The Final Girls' Trailer Plays Like a Love Letter to the Slumber-Party Slasher Movie

Fri, 08/21/2015 - 11:10

Genre fans have been buzzing about The Final Girls ever since it premiered at this past SXSW Film Festival (including yours truly). The film -- about a group of contemporary teens who get trapped inside an '80s slasher movie -- is a silly deconstruction of the slasher movie then and now, and reminiscent of films like Scream or Cabin in the Woods -- though not as gory or as frightening. The Final Girls is a horror movie that's got more heart than legit scares. And that's okay...
