Forget about 3D. IMAX is the thing that movie studios are going to use to get a few more bucks per movie ticket from you. It should come as no surprise that Disney, who has never been afraid of finding new ways to make money, is planning to release the hotly anticipated 'Star Wars: Episode 7' in this massive format. So are you prepared to pay a little extra to journey to a galaxy far, far away on the biggest screen possible?
With 'Frozen' still tearing up the box office months after release, the demand for fantastical stories revolving around princesses are at an all-time high ... and Disney isn't the only one looking for a slice of the action. Sofia Coppola of 'Lost in Translation' and 'The Bling Ring' fame is looking to bring Hans Christian Anderson's 'The Little Mermaid' to the big screen for Universal, which is as interesting a combination of talent and subject matter that we've ever seen.
If the goal for 'Need For Speed' was to replicate the success of the 'Fast and Furious' films, then the film's opening weekend is not promising. Opening in third place, the video game adaptation was overtaken by two of last week's releases, making this potential franchise D.O.A.
On paper, 'Pan' sounds like the kind of movie you'd have to drag us to kicking and screaming, but since the production keeps on adding talented people like Rooney Mara to the cast, it's getting more and more difficult to ignore.
After seven years of waiting, no one knew if a sequel to '300' would do the business of its predecessor. And now we have a definitive answer: yes. '300: Rise of an Empire' effortlessly took the number one spot at the box office, proving that America still loves shirtless Greeks murdering each other in slow motion.
The world is a little more terrifying than usual these days. With Russian forces occupying Ukraine's Crimean peninsula, the internet has already started throwing around references to World War III. Thankfully, 'SNL' is here to take something that has us terrified and make us laugh instead. The show's solution? Bring in Liam Neeson.
This weekend saw a brutal showdown between Liam Neeson, the current god of action cinema, and Jesus Christ, the current god of millions of human beings. Since the box office is a "two may enter, but only one may leave" type showdown, the victory ultimately went to Mr. Neeson and 'Non-Stop,' which edged out the son of God and his movie, uh, 'Son of God' to win the weekend.
Everyone can agree that child actors are generally unbearable and drag down otherwise good movies. So what happens when you recast this year's Oscar nominees with a bunch of wooden, smiling and occasionally barely coherent kids? You get the Spotlightz! acting camp, which recreates some of the past year's most acclaimed films in unspeakably awful ways. Thanks for that, 'SNL.'
Snarky movie reviews are nothing new (especially in the cruel world of internet journalism), but few people can deliver bitter sarcasm and loathing quite like Taran Killam in the guise of an 1860s newspaper reporter named Jebediah Atkinson. Inexplicably torn out of his century and thrust onto the 'SNL' stage, Atkinson appeared on the latest Weekend Update to talk about the Oscars and proceeded to tear cinematic history a new one.
When you make a movie as emotionally draining and difficult to watch as '12 Years a Slave,' you're bound to make the vast majority of the people watching uncomfortable. After all, if people aren't upset by a film that tracks a man being dehumanized and treated as property, you're obviously doing something wrong. But if a film is that hard to watch, what was it like to make? Thankfully, 'SNL' is here to show us all of the nitty gritty details.
