50 Greatest Comic Book Movie Adaptations

19 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

When we asked our staff to vote on the best comic book movie adaptations, we were afraid the results would consist only of superhero films. While there are many superhero movies listed below, it is great to see a bulk of non-Hollywood films appearing on the list as well. We set out to compile a list of 50 movies but as it were, we ended up with 5 ties, and so the list consists 55 films instead. Let us know if you think we missed something. Enjoy!

55. The Adventures of Tintin

Spielberg’s first venture into animation is one of his best. Taking notes from the classic Raiders of the Lost Ark playbook, Spielberg crafted another spirited, thrilling, and always entertaining adventure. The Adventures of Tintin is one of the most pleasurable, family-friendly experiences, that boils down to one grand treasure hunt. There’s much to admire on-screen, but it is the spectacular »

These Were the Truman Show VMAs

31 August 2015 5:58 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In 2013, Kanye West gave a spirited, instant-classic interview to former BBC Radio 1 host Zane Lowe. “I’ve reached a point in my life where my Truman Show boat has hit the painting,” he said, in perhaps the most frequently quoted bit of the segment. West was referring, of course, to the moment at the end of Peter Weir’s 1998 sophisticated dorm-room stoner drama when Jim Carrey’s character sails up to the wall at the end of the closed-off television set he’s taken for the real world, realizes its artificiality, and engages in a conversation with his “creator,” a TV producer played by Ed Harris. “Was nothing real?” Truman Burbank asks an omniscient voice he can’t see. “You were real,” the producer says. “That’s what made you so good to watch.” Oh, 2015 VMAs: Was nothing real? I am both shocked and relieved to report that I actually »

'Hannibal's creator explains that dark, twisted and... romantic(?) series finale

29 August 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Tonight, Bryan Fuller and company gave us the end of "Hannibal" as we know it. Even if the money and logistics can ever be worked out for some kind of movie or miniseries featuring Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy, and this creative team, the show's time as an ongoing TV series is done, and it ended in a way that functions as a conclusion to the story, even if it's one that may outrage some fans. (My finale review is here.) Earlier this week, I spoke with Fuller about that ending, potential ways he could continue the franchise, the challenges of finally doing a direct adaptation of "Red Dragon," and a lot more — including me having a very different interpretation of the post-credits scene than what Fuller intended — coming up just as soon as you take the key from around my neck...

14 cartoon movie spinoffs you forgot existed: The good, the bad and the just plain weird

27 August 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Free Willy vs cyborgs? The Mighty Ducks from outer space? The path to bringing a beloved film to the small screen isn't always a smooth one, as these oddities demonstrate.

How many of these madcap cartoon series do you remember?

Check out this amazing concept art for the abandoned Jurassic Park animation

1. Back to the Future

Back to the Future is generally considered a perfect movie trilogy, so did we really need the further adventures of Doc Brown and his family in cartoon form? Christopher Lloyd actually appeared in this series in live-action interstitials, but the animated Doc was voiced by Dan 'Homer Simpson' Castellaneta.

2. Mighty Ducks

Remember those films about the cute outcast kids who Emilio Estevez coaches into champion hockey players? How much better would it have been if they were actual ducks? Alien ducks? It made sense to someone.

3. The Real Ghostbusters

8 movie burgers to get your mouth watering for National Burger Day

26 August 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Start salivating. Prepare for meat sweats. Dab uselessly at that pesky blob of ketchup on your shirt. Yes, today marks National Burger Day, 24 hours in which to celebrate that magical combo of juicy meat pattie and toasted sliced bun.

Burgers have been gracing the silver screen for decades, from quotable Tarantino scenes to deadly weapons in Jim Carrey comedies. So let's serve up eight iconic burger scenes to watch with relish. Fries with that?

1. Pulp Fiction's Big Kahuna

The undisputed king of movie burger moments, Samuel L Jackson's Jules tucks into a Big Kahuna seconds before laying his vengeance upon a quivering Frank Whaley. See also: the Royale with Cheese scene and its painfully awkward homage in John Travolta's From Paris with Love.

2. American Beauty's Mr Smiley's

Kevin Spacey's Lester Burnham hits peak mid-life crisis when he takes a job behind the counter at Mr Smiley's in American Beauty. »

Best of Late Night TV: Kristin Chenoweth Manscapes Conan, Sick Seth MacFarlane Draws Audience Members

26 August 2015 12:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Kristin Chenoweth was on "Conan" and, it turns out, she likes to manscape her male friends -- but only above the neck. Kristin said Conan O'Brien had "some brow issues," pointing out what she'd change. So Conan broke out a tweezer and let her do it. His eyes teared up and Andy Richter said he was crying because he's never been this pretty. Conan's reasoning was "One Direction'S Breaking Up!"

Speaking of 1D, the talk shows have been having fun with this "break," and Conan had a video suggesting replacement boy bands. Skip the centipede, go for the ferns!

Seth MacFarlane was sick and sounded "like Rachael Ray »

218 Babies Were Named Anakin in 2014; 218 Teens Predicted to Change Their Name From Anakin in 2032

24 August 2015 12:23 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Looking at the list of the top 1,000 baby names in the U.S. in 2014, EW noticed a disturbance in the Force: 218 babies were named Anakin. That’s the same as Truman, which is surprising, because even though that movie was pretty solid, Jim Carrey’s midi-chlorians levels were definitely on the scale. Interestingly, Anakin didn’t crack the top 1,000 in the last three years, which once again proves J.J. Abrams is a viral-marketing genius. As the list only provides the top 1,000, there’s no word if someone named their kid Jar Jar, but with 218 Anakins, you know there must be a couple. Meesa thinks they're in for a tough life.  »

17 actors impersonating other actors: Leonardo DiCaprio's Jack Nicholson impression is crazy good

24 August 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

You might think you can do a decent Christopher Walken, but really, you can't touch the professionals. Here, from Kevin Spacey to Steve Coogan, are the very finest impersonators in the business (of other people in the business).

1. Kevin Spacey

Actors impersonated: Katharine Hepburn, Jimmy Stewart, Marlon Brando, Christopher Walken

To know Kevin Spacey is to know his impersonations. Willing to bust out a Brando at the drop of a hat, the former Old Vic head honcho was more than willing to obey James Lipton's commands during his appearance on Inside The Actors Studio.

Ps - there are Kevin Spacey impressions, then there are Kevin Spacey impressions in front of the people he's impersonating. Ladies and gentlemen, Al Pacino and "Al Pacino".

2. Bradley Cooper

Actors impersonated: Robert De Niro, Owen Wilson, Christopher Walken, Christian Bale

Everyone can do a Christopher Walken - even if it's a terrible Christopher Walken »

Captain America: Civil War footage, huge Star Wars announcement , Toy Story 4 – D23 Recap

21 August 2015 3:17 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Disney don’t do Comic Con. They’re better than that. They’ve got their own thing going on. It’s called the D23 Expo.

Scary number connotations aside (seriously, Google ‘the number 23’…or just rent the Jim Carrey movie), D23 is an enormously important event in the movie news calendar. This year saw huge announcements on Pixar’s upcoming slate (revealing Toy Story 4 through to 116 – Joke), the first look at Captain America: Civil War and Star Wars land.

This special preview of next month’s Flickering Myth Movie Show has our esteemed panel discussing the Expo’s announcements, and a bunch of other stuff, too. It also reveals what, exactly, ‘D23′ stands for. Check it our below…

The full September edition of the Flickering Myth Movie Show – including an in-depth look at the Fantastic Four fiasco (alliteration points) – goes up on Sunday 31st August. Set a reminder in your generic smart phone device. »

Jim Carrey and Hugh Jackman Get in Hilarious Impersonation War

21 August 2015 12:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Three days ago, Hugh Jackman decided to share his impersonation of Jim Carrey's The Mask in an Instagram video that quickly went viral. The star of that 1994 classic has now responded, sparking one very hilarious social media war. Yes, as you will see in the photo below, Jim Carrey is The Wolverine, and he is threatening his impersonation opponent with some deadly cutlery.

It's The Wolverine Vs. The Mask in what will surely be remembered as a showdown for the ages (well, in actuality you'll probably forget about it before you get home from work tonight). They both wear yellow costumes, they are both impervious to injury, and they're both flamboyant and loud superheroes! And they obviously like taking the piss out of one another, using the world as their platform. Though, this is more on the funny side. Don't expect this jovial beef to break out in the »

By now everyone knows that cutest dad ever Hugh Jackman loves Dubsmash and Instagram. Remember that Katy Perry "Teenage Dream" lip sync video? Well, the 46-year-old hunk is back at it again this week, this time using the Dubsmash app to channel Jim Carrey's character from The Mask. "#JimCarrey mate trying my best to do justice!

Carrey, 53, decided to take on one of Jackman's biggest roles in his response—complete with a signature Wolverine 'do! nullHey with the facial hair, we'll »

Hugh Jackman and Jim Carrey impersonate each other, finally, and it's brilliant

21 August 2015 4:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Hugh Jackman impersonating The Mask, Jim Carrey impersonating The Wolverine: It's finally happened.

Presumably the product of some less-than-hectic schedules and a few too many coffees, the two Hollywood A-listers have recreated each other's most famous roles.

#JimCarrey mate trying my best to do justice! Clearly, I should stay in my own lane.

A video posted by Hugh Jackman (@thehughjackman) on Aug 17, 2015 at 8:12pm Pdt

It started off with Jackman doing his best "Smokin'" as part of a Dubsmash game he was playing.

Here, in case you were wondering, is what the real article looks like:

Both big deals on both Twitter and Instagram, it's no surprise that Carrey saw Jackman's attempt - but what was a surprise was his impeccable response:

Nice move @RealHughJackman Now watch me make a meal out of your biggest role. ;^> pic.twitter.com/GUfHB2RR4L

See Hugh Jackman and Jim Carrey's Hilarious Impersonations of Each Other's Characters

21 August 2015 4:05 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Sometimes, celebrities can share too much on social media. Sometimes, they share just the right amount. Hugh Jackman and Jim Carrey fell into the latter camp this week with a random, yet completely hilarious, attempt at impersonating two of each other's most beloved characters.

The shenanigans started a few days ago when Jackman uploaded a Dubsmash video of himself uttering Carrey's famous "Smokin'!" line from "The Mask," nailing the comedian's rubbery facial expression with wide eyes, raised eyebrows, and a devilish grin. Jackman's post got plenty of love from fans, but it was Carrey's response the following day that made things truly amazing.

#JimCarrey mate trying my best to do justice! Clearly, I should stay in my own lane.

Hugh Jackman and Jim Carrey Spoof Each Other's Movies, and the Results Are Hilarious

A video posted by Hugh Jackman (@thehughjackman) on Aug 17, 2015 at 8:12pm Pdt Hugh Jackman started a hilarious feud with Jim Carrey this week without even knowing it. The actor took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a funny Dubsmash video of himself impersonating Jim's character in 1994's The Mask. "#JimCarrey mate trying my best to do justice! Clearly, I should stay in my own lane," Hugh captioned the clip. Jim then decided to have a little fun of his own and took to Twitter on Wednesday to share a photo of himself spoofing Hugh's most famous character: Wolverine. Jim wrote, "Nice move @RealHughJackman Now watch me make a meal out of your biggest role," and in the photo, he uses kitchen utensils as claws, his hair spiked on either side. Your move, Hugh . . . Nice move @RealHughJackman Now watch me make a meal out of your biggest role. ;^> pic.twitter. »

The Great British Bake Off: 12 things that look just like Paul's bread lion

19 August 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Well, that was totally roarsome. It was Bread Week in the Great British Bake Off tent and the showstopper round - in which the 10 remaining hopefuls had five hours to whip up a 3D bread sculpture - produced some spectacular bakes. There was the Brighton Royal Pavilion, a bicycle, a frock, a snake, a bunch of flowers and a Tracey Emin-esque unmade bed.

But best by far was the lion made out of bread. Baked by Welsh prison governor Paul Jagger - himself something of a lookalike for judge Paul Hollywood - the 'King Of The Jungle' creation left Hollywood totally gobsmacked.

"That's one of the best things I've seen on bread, ever," murmured the notoriously hard-to-please judge. "It's exceptional."

Here's 12 things the majestic bready behemoth reminded us of...
