41 A-List Actors Who Bombed as Hard as Johnny Depp in ‘Mortdecai’

28 January 2015 7:04 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

When Johnny Depp‘s mustache comedy “Mortdecai” brought in less than $5 million on opening weekend, it marked the A-list actor’s fifth straight box office bomb. But he’s far from the only top billed actor to endure a tanker or two.

The 51-year-old film star and his co-stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor and Olivia Munn are in fact in very good company.

A Brief History of Accurate Hacking Scenes in Movies, From ‘The Conversation’ to ‘Blackhat’

27 January 2015 9:20 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Bad hacking is everywhere in movies, but there are a handful of films that actually get it right. The problem is that the good stuff isn’t very interesting to look at. Real hackers don’t use virtual reality setups, and they don’t act like Hugh Jackman in Swordfish. Val Kilmer’s line in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is […]

Tony Awards preview: What is ahead for Best Play?

26 January 2015 1:02 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

British works dominate the field in the 2014-15 race for Best Play at the Tony Awards. The current frontrunner is "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time," Simon Stephens's adaptation of the best-selling novel by Mark Haddon, while Nick Payne's "Constellations" is its strongest currently-running rival. Jez Butterworth's "The River" may sneak in, but its main attraction is star Hugh Jackman's biceps, rather than the slight story of a fisherman (Jackman) bringing various girlfriends to his remote cabin; also working against it is the fact that it closes on Feb. 8. -Break- Tony Awards preview: What is ahead for Best Musical? But these shows can expect competition from yet-to-open English imports about royalty: Peter Morgan's "The Audience," which details Queen Elizabeth II's meetings with her prime ministers, and "Wolf Hall, Parts I and II," Mike Poulton's two-part adaptation o...' »

10 X-Men Characters The Movies Totally Wasted

25 January 2015 12:26 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

The long-running X-Men series has remained one of the most consistently popular franchises in Hollywood and after fifteen years of movies including sequels, prequels, reboots and spin-offs the merry band of mutants show no signs of slowing down; last year’s Days of Future past marked both a critical and commercial high point for the franchise with almost $750m at the box office and a current Rotten Tomatoes rating of 91%.

However, as you would expect from a franchise that spans seven movies, features dozens of characters and includes a hugely convoluted timeline that spans decades; there are a number of mutants that have been short-changed on the big screen. While Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine quickly became one of popular culture’s biggest icons and Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender have done great work as Professor Xavier and Magneto respectively, not every character is »

10 Cameos That Must Happen In 2015’s Biggest Movies

22 January 2015 1:15 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

Everyone loves a good cameo. When someone of note pops up briefly – particularly when their appearance comes as a surprise – it can often be one of the most memorable parts of a movie, but they’re not always considered to be a success.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past got it right when it had a number of famous faces pop up at the end of the movie. After Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine had successfully completed his time-travelling exploits, he awakened in a world that reintroduced a number of characters from previous movies – some of whom were thought to be dead – including Famke Janssen’s Jean Grey and James Marsden’s Scott Summers, opening the door to a plethora of new possibilities for the X-Men franchise.
