Family movies are full of wonder again. Not only is Steven Spielberg back this summer with one of his old-fashioned, kid-friendly blockbusters in The BFG, but we've seen and will continue to see movies this year that amaze and warm the hearts of moviegoers of all ages. One of the most anticipated, especially after the release of a new trailer, is surely Disney's Pete's Dragon. The remake of the studio's 1977 animation/live-action hybrid is a lot different from the original....

Tue, 06/14/2016 - 06:56

For a long time Pixar was the most reliable, most trusted name in animation. People knew a new release was worth seeing just by virtue of it being a Pixar movie. And while the quality of animated movies has risen drastically across the board in Hollywood, Pixar has still managed to be king of the animation castle. Disney Animation Studios, though, is making a remarkable run for the crown. Tangled, Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen, Big Hero 6 and Zootopia have all reestablished the studio as a home for...

See How Classic Movie Locations Look Now

Tue, 06/14/2016 - 06:52

Movie-location tourism continues to be on the rise. The thing is, places don't always look the same as they did on-screen, whether because of time and changes or because it was dressed up for the film. I recently took a trip to Savannah, Georgia, for instance and was disappointed to find that the Forrest Gump bench was just a prop and never actually a part the city's Chippewa Square. Also, often times the current owners of the location aren't welcoming to tourists. Earlier this...

Tue, 06/14/2016 - 06:48

One of Pixar's greatest strengths is its ability to perfectly set the mood for a new animated feature by delivering a beautiful appetizer in the form of a short film. Many of the studio's shorts are just as memorable as its features, and Pixar's new one -- titled Piper -- is no different. With absolutely stunning animation that looks so incredibly real, Piper follows a little sandpiper who's trying desperately to learn the ropes when it comes to navigating its way around...

It's fun being scared at the movies. It's also fun watching other people scared in real life, if the popularity of prank shows is any indication. With each new horror movie, there seems to be some viral stunt related to it where we get to see some poor soul(s) frightened by fake hauntings and other seemingly terrifying situations.

Fri, 06/10/2016 - 06:22

In 2002, Mel Gibson was riding high as one of the biggest box office stars in the world. His most recent films at the time, Signs and We Were Soldiers, showed his versatility with different types of material, yet he suggested he wanted to focus more on directing and producing.

Weird Rumor: Christopher Nolan Will Destroy an Expensive Piece of History for His Next Movie

Thu, 06/09/2016 - 06:10

Christopher Nolan is one of the few filmmakers working today who can say "Jump!" and have a studio eagerly shout "How high?!" His track record is unbelievably strong, commercially and critically. He makes huge hits that not only make silos of money theatrically, but they stick around in the pop-culture consciousness for years. He's kind of a big deal. Having said all of that, we're not quite ready to fully believe this rumor about his next movie, the World...
