New 'Spider-Man' Heading to IMAX; Here's What We Know About the Movie

Wed, 01/27/2016 - 06:12

It's been nearly one year since we heard that Spider-Man would be joining the Marvel cinematic universe. Over the next few months we learned that his first appearance would come in Captain America: Civil War (from Disney), Tom Holland (above) would be portraying the web-slinger, Jon Watts (indie darling Cop Car) would be directing, and that his very own solo movie (from Sony) would hit theaters in 2017. More recently, the release date for the Spider-Man movie was pushed forward to...

Disney Plans to Make Marvel and 'Star Wars' Movies Forever

Wed, 01/27/2016 - 06:06

There was a time when movie fans had to genuinely wonder when, if ever, they would see another Star Wars movie. There was a time when you could have a baby in the space between Marvel movies. That time has come and gone. And if it were up to Disney, that dark period wherein the big screen didn't have lightsabers or Iron Man suits will never, ever return. That's not exactly a bombshell. Those movies make boatloads of money and so of course a company is going to want to keep making...

Sundance Buzz: Watch the Stars of 'Sing Street' Perform Your New Favorite Songs

Tue, 01/26/2016 - 16:41

One of the biggest crowd pleasers screening at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival is John Carney's Sing Street, about a kid from Dublin in 1985 who decides to start a band in order to woo his dream girl. Once again, Carney (Once, Begin Again) delivers a deliciously sweet and funny movie that's stuffed with great music - and, in my opinion, his best music yet. Featuring music from Duran Duran, Genesis and the Cure -- not to mention several original songs, most notably the insanely catchy...

Watch the Director of 'The Raid' Experiment with Doing a Bloodless Action Scene

Tue, 01/26/2016 - 07:23

The Raid: Redemption and The Raid 2 have some of the best fight scenes not just of the last few years, but in the entirety of mankind's existence on planet Earth. That may sound like hyperbole, but it's not. Those two movies are why people immediately started wondering when director Gareth Evans was going to make a Hollywood movie, the train of thought being that if he can deliver that kind of action on relatively small budgets, imagine what he would do with a massive budget....

Arnold Schwarzenegger Updates 'Conan' Sequel Plans

Tue, 01/26/2016 - 06:59

In answer to the question, "What is best in life?," Conan the Barbarian answered in 1982: "To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women." Arnold Schwarzenegger's sincere though stolid delivery of that dialogue became iconic, reflecting his relative inexperience as an actor as well as the movie's macho, action-first aesthetic. The great John Milius directed the muscular action-adventure and cowrote the screenplay...

Should Your Kids See 'Kung Fu Panda 3'?

Mon, 01/25/2016 - 16:35

For my 5-year old son, Kung Fu Panda 3 wasn’t just a movie: it was an interactive experience.  When Po karate chopped, Tate’s hands sliced through the air; when Po clasped his hands to summon chi, power pulsed through Tate as he clutched his fingers; when Po raised his hands above his head in an epic spiritual battle, well, Tate probably obstructed the view of the people behind him as he copied the Dragon Warrior’s every move. Of the other three young boys who occupied...

New 'Batman v Superman' TV Spots, Plus the Image That Has the Internet Buzzing

Mon, 01/25/2016 - 14:22

Even though the title is Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it's probably a safe bet that Batman and Superman don't fight each other nonstop throughout the entire movie. At some point they're going to have a mutual enemy that brings them together and paves the way for the Dawn of Justice part of the title. But until we get to the actual movie, the marketing is basically going to be the same debate that's been raging in school yards and on online message boards for...

Meet the Characters from 'The Finest Hours'

Mon, 01/25/2016 - 09:00

On its own, the plot of The Finest Hours reads like the perfect tale of action, heroism and inspiration. But when you find out it’s actually telling the true events of a seemingly impossible U.S. Coast Guard rescue some 70 years ago, it becomes all the more remarkable.  You may never have heard the tale, but it goes like this: In February of 1952 a massive storm rocked the Eastern seaboard and literally ripped apart two oil tankers, the SS Pendleton and SS Fort Mercer. On orders...

'Labyrinth' Remake on Its Way from 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Cowriter

Mon, 01/25/2016 - 06:56

When David Bowie passed away recently, many fans shared fond memories of his starring performance as the Goblin King in Labyrinth, Jim Henson's 1986 fantasy. Sure, maybe the movie as a whole wasn't the knockout dazzler that everyone wished it was, yet its goofy charms and original approach have held up well over the years and Bowie's sincere performance remains a highlight of his movie career. Labyrinth was a disappointment at the box office, earning less than $13 million during...
