In the wake of the Alien 5 news, here are 10 franchise sequels that also ignored at least one previous film.
We all have moments in our lives we'd prefer to forget, and so too do filmmakers. So what do you do when a movie franchise starts to go off the rails? Simple, just forget that the lesser films in the series never happened.
News recently broke that director Neill Blomkamp's taking this approach to the Alien universe. Recent interviews with both he and returning star Sigourney Weaver have revealed that Blomkamp's forthcoming sequel will not necessarily follow the events of Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection, and pick up the story from Aliens instead (although he has since given a brief update on that).
Of course, we'll have to wait and see exactly how all this pans out. But it's by no means the first time in history that a film's »
Big Willy’s latest big screen outing makes its way to the multiplex this month. In Focus, Smith plays the consummate con man, a smooth operator who liberates people of their wealth with the help of a Margot Robbie-shaped femme fatale.
The duo of tricksters aren’t the first con artists to grace the silver screen however. So from pool sharks and grifters to tricksters, card cheats and American hustlers; here’s our rundown of the most memorable con artists in movie history.
One of the finest fraudster films to ever grace the multiplex; The Hustler stars Paul Newman as Fast Eddie Felson, a pool shark intent on toppling legendary cue-man Minnesota Fats (Jackie Gleason). With its smoky sets, stunning black and white cinematography and superb performances from Newman and Gleason; the film is just as good today as it was on its release more than 50 years ago. »

[Youtube "yJb0XQAUFLI"] Can't wait to find out what the star-studded show Scream Queens is all about? You may have to wait a little longer. Although the show's first teaser surfaced Friday (for Friday the 13th), it leaves a lot to the imagination. While the 12-second clip doesn't feature any of the high-profile cast members who have signed up for the horror-comedy project - Joe Manganiello, Lea Michele, Ariana Grande, Nick Jonas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer or Billie Lourd (aka Carrie Fisher's daughter) - it does have a fun, horror-genre feel with its "gotcha" ending.

The American Horror Story creator’s next small screen series, Scream Queens, has amassed a huge, starry cast, and boasts a quirky premise.

Post by Scream Queens.
As teasers go, it’s remarkably brief, but this type of sneak peek isn’t about actual footage or story. No, rather, it’s about awareness. Seeing as it’s Friday the 13th, this makes it the perfect time to clue in potential viewers to another blood-soaked series that’s gearing up to hit the small screen.

Ryan Murphy‘s new series is a horror comedy, as made abundantly clear in the first teaser for Fox’s “Scream Queens” that was aptly released on Friday the 13th. A happy blonde teen chews gum and arches an eyebrow — before a knife brutally pops her bubble of blissful ignorance and blood splatters everywhere. It’s a quick tease, but it certainly sets the tone for the show.

When Veep premiered in 2012, most people were surprised (and excited) to see child star, Anna Chlumsky, all grown up and cursing up a storm on HBO. Three seasons later, the 34-year-old actress has been twice nominated for an Emmy for her role as Amy Brookheimer, the determined and sometimes ruthless Chief of Staff to Vice President Selina Meyer.
Having already marked her territory in both film and TV, Chlumsky is taking on Broadway with her debut in You Can’t Take It with You, a slapstick play that has her testing her ability to keep a straight face.
Q&A: How John Lithgow Embraced His Age and Scored the Role of His Career
Despite all the recent success, Chlumsky still hasn’t forgotten the little things she’s learned along the way, such as the acting tricks Jamie Lee Curtis and Dan Aykroyd, her then-adult co-stars, taught her on the set of My Girl.

The hotly-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie is finally released in cinemas today (February 13) to coincide with Valentine's Day this weekend, and it's got our minds racing about just one thing....
The most ridiculously silly orgasms in movie history, obviously!
Virginal, apple pie-bonking Jim Levenstein can't believe his luck when his history tutoring with sexy Slovakian exchange student Nadia (Shannon Elizabeth) turns into something more. So excited is Jim, however, that he barely contains himself at her touch, only lasting a few more seconds on second go, until he, er, explodes again.
Sadly Stifler (Seann William Scott) had previously coerced Jim to set up a webcam in his room so they can all watch the frisky teenage pair, but he unwittingly »

With the exception of Rick Rosenthal's reasonably effective "Halloween II," I'm mostly indifferent to the "Halloween" films that followed John Carpenter's 1978 original -- a list that includes Rob Zombie's 2007 and 2009 entries in the series. As Carpenter himself once said: "I felt that there was no more story after the original." Hard to disagree! But because Hollywood is Hollywood and there's money to be made, the producers are now "recalibrating" the franchise with "Saw" writers Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton. Am I keen on this idea? Not particularly! But since they're gonna make this regardless of what I think, here are five things I'd like Dunstan, Melton and the producers to consider when crafting the new installment. 1. Take a cue from the subtlety of Carpenter's original One of the main reasons I love the original "Halloween" is that it's actually understated -- hell, even elegant. It's a slasher, »
