Box Office Numbers: Ants in the Pants

Despite our circle ranting and raving over Pixels, it seems it's gone largely unnoticed. Ultimately losing out to Ant-Man's $24.7 million with $24 million, Pixels is only in second place. It doesn't really matter since Sandle...

Review: Pixels

I really have no idea where to start with this. Usually when I sit down to write a review I'll have an angle by which to tackle a film, but with Pixels, I'm at a loss. I don't really know who the film is for. Is it a comedy a...

Disney also working on live action Sword in the Stone remake

Just after announcing their plans for a live action Aladdin prequel, Disney is literally just redoing all of movies now. Why not Aristocats next? Or a super depressing Fox and the Hound? Hell, give me a live action Goof Troop...

Review: Trainwreck

Whether or not you're a fan of her comedy, Amy Schumer is not going anywhere. Comedy's current "It" girl, Schumer's earned all of the accolades through her comedy specials and often hilarious television show, Inside Amy Schum...

Disney working on live action Aladdin prequel, Genies

We're going to get a lot of live action reboots of our favorite animated reboots of old fairy tales in the near future. Disney is working on a fair amount of them themselves (like Pete's Dragon, The Jungle Book, Beauty and th...

Box Office Numbers: B-A-N-A-N-A-S

Despite the plea I made in the review, parents are still dishing out tons of money for Minions. With their billion dollar advertising budget, the little buggers have taken over the box office with a whopping $115 million doll...

These Warcraft character posters are certainly something

San Diego Comic Con took place this past weekend so that means we've gotten all sorts of news and first looks. But since we're not at the convention we won't see any of the truly juicy stuff until studios decide to show foota...

Comic-Con trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has capes

I've been cautiously optimistic for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. There's lots to like (cool outfits, there's a great cast, the plot sounds like it fixes Man of Steel's biggest problem) and lots not to like (it looks li...

Comic-Con teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 is red all over

I've been all for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay's advertising since the beginning. Part 1 had a anti-propaganda take, and Part 2 follows the same route. Although we'll eventually get regular trailers and teasers soon, they'll ...

Ben Affleck and Geoff Johns are working together on the next solo Batman film

I'm guessing that before Ben Affleck agreed to appear as Batman in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice one of the stipulations was that he'd get to direct one of WB/DC's next films. Either that or Warner Bros just...

Review: Minions

Whether or not you've seen the Despicable Me movies, you definitely know who these little twinkie looking guys are. Perfectly designed to appeal to almost every demographic (a Xanax like shape, a bright and happy yellow, spea...

Marisa Tomei in talks to play Aunt May for Sony/Marvel's Spider-Man reboot

Although I'm having trouble deciding whether or not a new set of Spider-Man films (thanks to Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe) is a good or bad idea, I'm definitely looking forward to them now. When they annou...

First trailer for Goosebumps is in for a scare

I've been interested in the Goosebumps movie for some time. When it was first announced, it sounded like a neat but very weird idea. In the film adaptation of R.L. Stine's popular line of children's horror novels, Stine (Jack...

First official trailer for Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip

While you're waiting for next iteration of The Smurfs, Get Smurfy, there's another long running film series based off a popular old cartoon, Alvin and the Chipmunks. Their fourth (!) film, The Road Chip, takes the show on the...

Box Office Numbers: The Outsiders

Thanks to a prolonged July 4th hangover, I totally forgot to see a good movie last weekend. Apparently no one else is having that problem since there was a good amount of change thrown around over the holiday. Jurassic World ...

Review: Ted 2

Say what you will about Seth MacFarlane, but the man knows how to stay in business. Despite many critics noting a decline in all of his television programs and his last effort A Million Ways to Die in the West died a million ...

First London Has Fallen teaser brings everything down

Although the two came out at the same time purely by coincidence, I couldn't help but prefer White House Down over Olympus Has Fallen. While Fallen gets more of the positive comments thanks to its break neck action, I liked t...

New batch of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice images have hair

While we've seen hi-gloss production images of the Batmobile and Baldy McBaldbald's and the like, we've never got a good look at the actual film beyond that first limp teaser. But with this new batch of character images of En...

First trailer for Rocky spin-off Creed starring Michael B. Jordan

Everyone's got that one film franchise that means more to them than anything. Some have Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, Jurassic Park, and there's probably a few folks that really want more of Pixar's Cars. But me, I've got...

Goku has blue hair in newest Dragonball Z: Resurrection of F Trailer

With a new Dragonball TV series taking up after the events of this film, I'm pretty pumped for Dragonball Z: Resurrection of F. The sequel to last year's Battle of Gods where Goku achieves the "Super Saiyan God" form that com...

First full trailer for Hotel Transylvania 2

Although Genndy Tartokovsky leaving his passion project Popeye still stings, at least we'll see his work in Hotel Transylvania 2. Although the first film wasn't too big a deal, it's still a lot better than anything Sony Anima...

First trailer for Kung Fu Panda 3 brings the thunder

I've got quite a fondness for the Kung Fu Panda series. It's a competent cartoon that's as funny as it is endearing. It's also got some really good classic kung fu sensibility, and since that's so rare these days, it's nice t...

There's a Fantastic Four themed menu at Denny's for some reason

If you're new to the site, there's one thing you should really know about us. We like terrible ideas. Although we'll rip a bad film apart in a review, we all secretly love what they do for cinema. Namely, we get weird ideas l...

5 dinosaur movies you should watch instead of Jurassic World

While Jurassic World takes the *ahem* world by storm, I never really connected with the idea. I don't have as big of a connection with Jurassic Park as a lot of folks do, but at the same time, I love me some dinosaurs. Good t...

These Ant-Man posters are the best Ant-Man thing yet

While Marvel's next film Ant-Man won't have The Avengers, Marvel doesn't want you to forget they exist in the same universe in case you somehow blacked out during the last five years of mass advertising. Either way, Ant-Man's...

First teaser trailer for Disney's Zootopia

While I still miss Disney's 2D animated style since Winnie the Pooh was great but not a film to end the legacy on, Disney's been hitting it out of the park with their CG efforts. They've found quite a groove with Wreck-It Ral...

Netflix Now: Limonada Edition

Earlier this week, as police officers have a harder time in the news, police shut down two little girls' lemonade stand. The two little girls were trying to make some money to go to a water park in Texas, and they were shut d...

Box Office Numbers: Spy vs. Spy

Another week gone, another week of box office numbers. Unsurprisingly, the Melissa McCarthy movie Spy (which apparently isn't as bad as her recent string of bad choices) took the top spot with $30 million, San Andreas is stil...

First trailer for Ridley Scott's The Martian

Although Ridley Scott has had a few misses lately, his adaptation of Andy Weir's The Martian might shape up to be quite a film. It's got a great cast with Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mar...

First teaser trailer for Pixar's The Good Dinosaur

The Good Dinosaur has had a troubling development for the last few years. Hit with delays, losing a director, and a major reworking, the film we have now no longer resembles the original idea. It's hard to tell how much of th...

Box Office Numbers: Rocky Road

Dwayne Johnson just can't catch a break, can he? At this point I'm not sure who is to blame. Is Johnson just not that great of an actor or does he just attach himself to terrible projects? After starring in two terrible solo ...

Disney no longer making Tron 3

Although Tron Legacy performed well on home video and seemed to strike a chord with fans, it just didn't become the grand reboot Disney wanted it to be. Stories of Tron 3's possible existence have been floating around since t...

Netflix Now: #ThanksObama Edition

Well, the POTUS with the MOSTUS has joined Twitter. There's some kind of gag in here somewhere, but this all seems way too surreal to be funny. In the few hours he's been on Twitter, he's already taken a jab at Bill Clinton, ...

First trailer for Cooties starring Elijah Wood and zombie fourth graders

I don't think I've ever talked about how much I love Elijah Wood's career. He's willing to take chances on the weirdest, and most far out projects. He doesn't always succeed, but he seems like the type of actor that's game fo...

Transformers sequels have found their writers, including Robert Kirkman

Remember that weird sounding "writers room" Paramount was trying to set up for Transformers sequels and spin-offs Jackson wrote about some time ago? To make the whole thing weirder, we now know who's a part of it. Seemingly f...

Newest Pan trailer looks gorgeous

I'm not sure what to think about yet another reboot/prequel/whatever the hell this is, but Pan looks amazing. It's directed by Joe Wright, it's got a great cast with Hugh Jackman, Rooney Mara, and Garrett Hedlund, and I don't...

Newest trailer for Pixels is gamey

I have a hard time figuring out exactly who Pixels is made for. Is it for the man children that Adam Sandler has spent his entire career trying to sell to, or is it for folks who'd recognize videogames in general? In the same...

First official trailer for Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials

Although I don't remember liking The Maze Runner too much, I did appreciate what it did differently from all of the other Young Adult book films floating around. A testosterone riddled film full of run and gun dumb action. It...

Box Office Numbers: Pitchy, dawg

Like most folks last weekend, I was torn between seeing Mad Max and Pitch Perfect 2. With only enough time and money allowing only one of the two, I chose Fury Road because my roommates have done the same. I was originally go...

First outrageous trailer for Jem and the Holograms

I've made it no secret that I've been looking forward to Jem and Holograms ever since it was announced (and put in production just a month later), and after the awesome set of images we got the other day. I was really hoping ...
