Watch: Poltergeist’s Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt Play “Save or Kill”

3 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Now playing in theaters is director Gil Kenan’s (Monster House) contemporary remake of the classic horror film Poltergeist. Produced by Sam Raimi, the redo stars Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt as parents trying to fend off a spiritual invasion and save their eight-year-old daughter (Kennedi Clements) from the evil forces trying to take her. The film also stars Jared Harris, Saxon SharbinoKyle CatlettSusan Heyward and Nicholas Braun. While some might be nervous about the remake, I was actually surprised by how well it’s put together. However, it’s definitely aimed at a younger audience, and it’s important to know that going in. While I already posted the first part of my interview with Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt, it’s now time to watch them play “Save or Kill.” If you haven’t seen it yet, the game reveals which franchises, characters or bands someone »

The rise of Alicia Vikander

22 May 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

2015 has undoubtedly been Alicia Vikander’s breakthrough year with fantastic lead parts in the thought provoking sci-fi thriller Ex Machina and the harrowing World War I drama Testament Of Youth, which is now available digitally and will arrive on Blu-ray and DVD from 25th May. However, this rise to the fore is by no means out of the blue for Vikander, who showed promise as a leading actress in A Royal Affair in 2012 and then went on to hold her own opposite the likes of Keira Knightley in Anna Karenina and Benedict Cumberbatch in The Fifth Estate. In this feature we take a look at the very best of Alicia Vikander.

Anna Karenina (2012)

Anna Karenina is a bold, theatrical adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s timeless novel by Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard. The film was the third collaboration of Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley with acclaimed director Joe Wright, but »

Avengers: Age of Ultron hits $1 billion at the global box office

15 May 2015 11:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron has reached a box office milestone today, with the Joss Whedon-directed superhero sequel becoming the twenty-first film to pass the $1 billion mark world wide, and the third Marvel Studios movie to hit ten figures after The Avengers and Iron Man 3.

It’s taken twenty-four days for Age of Ultron to reach a billion, some seven days longer than Fast & Furious 7’s record-breaking feat last month (and five days more than its predecessor in 2012). Furious 7 remains some $460 million ahead of the Avengers sequel worldwide, although Age of Ultron leads the way in terms of domestic box office and should find itself cracking the all-time global top ten when the dust settles on this weekend.

Part one of our in-depth second look at Joss Whedon's 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

14 May 2015 | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Ultron thinks we're monsters. This isn't just about beating him. It's about whether he's right." -- Captain America When I went back tonight for my second look at "Avengers: Age Of Ultron," I honestly didn't know what to expect. It feels like it's been months since I saw the film for the first time, and most of my personal hard drive has been taken up with thoughts of "Mad Max: Fury Road" since I saw it. That's not a slam on Joss Whedon or his work on the "Avengers" sequel, either. It's just that "Fury Road" pushed a button in me that no other film has in quite a while, and it's easy for me to get full-on obsessed with a film I love. What struck me most about "Ultron" on second viewing is that the script for the  movie is thematically robust, and my problems with the movie were »

Cobie Smulders and Jeremy Renner Talk Avengers 2, Memorable Moments from Filming, and More

During my interview with Cobie Smulders and Jeremy Renner for Avengers: Age of Ultron they talked about their memorable moments from the set of the Avengers sequel and the worst jobs they ever had. They also played  a round of “Save or Kill,” a game that reveals which franchises, characters or bands they would choose when pitted against another of equal value.

How much screen time does each Avenger get in Age of Ultron?

10 May 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Minor Avengers: Age of Ultron spoilers follow…

Back in 2012, the folks at Vulture got their stopwatch out to time exactly how much screen time each of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes got in The Avengers, and now with the sequel currently in cinemas they’ve done the same for Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Given the expanded roster, it was inevitable that some of the superheroes would have to take a back seat this time around, so which character got the Hawkeye treatment this time around? Well, considering The Vision isn’t created until later in the movie, it seems that would be Thor

Vision – 8:41

Thor – 14:18

Hawkeye – 19:56

Scarlet Witch – 20:59

Bruce Banner / Hulk – 23:55

Quicksilver – 26:43

Black Widow – 33:07

Iron Man – 45:34

Captain America – 50:25
