Marvel's 'Ant-Man' Debuts the Year's First Great Movie Poster

Tue, 01/06/2015 - 10:55

When it comes to Marvel's Ant-Man -- due in theaters July 17, two months after Avengers: Age of Ultron -- we wouldn't be surprised if the filmmakers and marketing folks were inspired by the old Volkswagen ads that asked us all to "think small." From their tiny trailer tease to this first poster, you can tell everyone is having fun playing off the film's concept, which is about an ex-con (Paul Rudd) who acquires a special suit that allows him to shrink down to the size of an...

Movies in Real Life: 'The Notebook' Marriage Proposal and a 'Beauty and the Beast' Throwdown

Tue, 01/06/2015 - 10:34

The movies are supposed to re-create our fantasies, but every now and then we try to mimic the magic of the silver screen in our real lives. Marriage proposals are a logical place for movie geeks to attempt such transcendence. There was that guy who dressed up as Spider-Man to ask his leading lady to marry him. And then there was the guy who reenacted a Jurassic Park scene for his proposal. And that time a guy made a whole movie trailer to do the deed in front of an audience. Oh, and there was...

Chances are likely that the next time you see Eddie Redmayne, he'll be holding up multiple awards thanks to an outstanding performance as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything.

Redmayne was a guest on the U.K.'s The Graham Norton Show recently, and he...

How to Avoid a Movie Meltdown

Mon, 01/05/2015 - 05:00

Taking little kids to the movies is always a gamble. You never know for sure if they’re going to be captivated by the on-screen action, ask a million questions using their “outside” voice, or squirm in their seats ready to make a break for the door. While there are no guarantees (and no refunds if you need to exit the movie early), here are some tips and tricks to better the odds that a family trip to the theater will go smoothly. Age is just a number. Children reach...

14 Films That Show Kids How to Handle Disappointment

Fri, 01/02/2015 - 12:37

My four-year-old, Tate, doesn’t handle disappointment well. Or, at all. If events don’t go exactly as he has imagined, it’s meltdown mania. For instance, if he opens a present and finds a book instead of the Legos he was hoping for, the wails start. Or, if an oat falls off the granola bar while removing the packaging, he refuses to eat it. Or, if his drive-through Taco Bell cheesy roll up is “smushed,” he screams the entire way home. Obviously, the kid has a future...

Boardwalk Empire: Mark Wahlberg, who served as a producer on the HBO crime series Boardwalk Empire (starring Steve Buscemi, above), says: "My next goal now is to get the movie made and start talking to Martin Scorsese about directing it."

Watch: Disney Reveals a Cruel Teaser Trailer for 'Ant-Man'

Fri, 01/02/2015 - 09:07

Even though this teaser trailer for Ant-Man will probably infuriate you, you've got to hand it to Disney and Marvel -- they simply know how to put on a show. After all, this is the studio that celebrates its movies (and fans) by holding giant events when they announce new movies. And so when one of their next movies is about a guy who can shrink to the size of an ant, you can bet they're going to have some fun with the marketing. So, naturally, that's why the first teaser trailer...

Watch a Remake of 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' Starring an Adorable Puppy As Indiana Jones

Tue, 12/30/2014 - 11:39

Get ready for cuteness overload, because this fan-made re-creation of Raiders of the Lost Ark featuring a boxer puppy is so adorably sweet that you’ll probably get cavities just from watching it. The project, which was produced and directed by Zach King and Jadon Gauthier, is five minutes long and comes complete with groan-inducing title Raiders of the Lost Bark.
