Sony's really putting all of their eggs in one basket. Banking on the few films that work, Sony's slowing turning all of their properties (and future properties) into huge universes. Starting with Spider-Man, continuing on wi... read

Wonder Woman movie loses director Michelle MacLaren


Apr 14
It's like two steps forward and two steps back for WB and DC. It's just a natural fact that DC's films are having quite a bit of trouble on the back end. It seemed fine at first with WB openly searching for a female director ... read

It's been a tough time for Latino representation in pop culture. While television has made great strides in casting Latino actors in non-traditional roles to show off a greater range of characterization beyond "gang banger" a... read feature

Super Bowl TV spot for Pitch Perfect 2

"Aca-scuse me?"
