'Suicide Squad' May Have the Soundtrack of the Summer

Mon, 06/20/2016 - 06:07

Superhero movies have some of the most iconic scores -- from Superman to The Dark Knight -- but they're also no strangers to pop music. Just look back to Prince's contributions to Tim Burton's Batman and Seal's hit "Kiss from a Rose" from Batman Forever, not to mention Chad Kroeger and Josey Scott's "Hero" from Spider-Man. But the soundtrack for Guardians of the Galaxy was a whole new animal in terms of giving moviegoers...

Watch: Lucasfilm and Magic Leap Are Teaming to Make Crazy 'Star Wars' Holograms a Reality

Fri, 06/17/2016 - 06:17

It's hard to watch Star Wars and not want to reach into the screen and pull things from its science-fantasy world into our own. How cool would it be to have a lightsaber? Or a service droid? Or a best friend who was a Wookie? Or, you know, a spaceship? One, seemingly small thing we've all been dreaming of from Star Wars is on the verge of becoming a reality: holograms. Well, kind of. Technically speaking, that image you see of C-3PO and R2-D2 in a living room...

Fri, 06/17/2016 - 06:11

The origins of movies and the story of their continued developments are always of interest to die-hard fans, and especially to Die Hard fans.

It's somewhat based on the 1979 Roderick Thorp novel Nothing Lasts Forever, which is a sequel to his book The Detective. The earlier work became a movie of the same name in 1968 starring Frank Sinatra, and he was...

Thu, 06/16/2016 - 16:06

If you’ve seen the new trailer for Disney’s Pete’s Dragon, you know there’s going to be plenty of fire-breathing fun when the movie hits theaters later this summer. Whatever you do, though, don’t call this a remake; it’s a total reimagining of the 1977 Mouse House classic. Sure, it’s got a dragon and a boy named Pete, but that’s where the similarities end.

But it wasn't just that Colin Trevorrow had delivered a popular sci-fi movie in Safety Not Guaranteed that attracted producer Steven Spielberg to his talents and blockbuster movie...

Thu, 06/16/2016 - 06:11

Horror-movie spin-offs are relatively rare. Freddy vs. Jason was a unique spin-off of two different franchises, matching serial killers Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees against one other in a very bloody, action-packed movie. Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones left behind comfortable Caucasian families in the suburbs to see how young Latinos in a low-budget apartment complex fared against the supernatural. More recently, Annabelle followed the terrifying adventures of a vintage doll that...
