A hit at Cannes earlier this year, Hell or High Water stars Ben Foster and Chris Pine as two down-on-their-luck and semi-estranged brothers desperately in need of money to save the family ranch from foreclosure after their mother's death. Their solution? Rob banks, because -- bankers. On the other side of the law is Texas Ranger Marcus Hamilton (Jeff Bridges), gruff as ever and hot on their tails.

Tue, 06/28/2016 - 09:00

The sudden revelation of Superman, an alien capable of so much more than an ordinary person, filled the world with awe in Man of Steel. Then more aliens arrived, bringing destruction with them, and awe was replaced with fear. That grim state is where we find the world at the beginning of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. That fear is what drives Gotham's caped crusader to wage a preemptive war on the last son of Krypton, but as you can see in this Fandango Movieclips exclusive scene...

Should Your Kids See 'Independence Day: Resurgence'?

Tue, 06/28/2016 - 08:56

  Twenty years have passed since the aliens ran off with their many tails between their legs in Independence Day, and now they’re back with a vengeance for Independence Day: Resurgence. But the PG-13 sequel aimed at teens and families may be less appealing than parents who are eager to share the experience may hope. I invited my 15 year old to go, enticing her with the offer to bring a few friends. Now, maybe it was because I caught her in the middle of important work –...

Roland Emmerich Has Big Immediate Plans for 'Independence Day 3'

Tue, 06/28/2016 - 06:25

If you're one of the minority of Americans who saw Independence Day: Resurgence over the weekend, you know where a third installment in the series would go. It's pretty literally stated at the end of the movie. But due to the disappointing domestic box office for the first sequel, it's up in the air whether we'll see another. Personally, I enjoyed Resurgence for what it is and would follow the franchise further out of its disaster-flick roots and more into...

Mon, 06/27/2016 - 09:44

Nicolas Winding Refn did something when making The Neon Demon that he had never done before... but before we get to that, let's backtrack a bit. Music plays a big part in any movie, but when it comes to Refn's work, music plays such an enormous role it may as well be a living, breathing on-screen character. Ever since 2011's already iconic Drive, starring Ryan Gosling as an unlikely hero for a neighbor in trouble, Refn has worked closely with composer Cliff...
