Weekend Box Office Report: October 17-19, 2014

15 hours ago

Audiences feel the Fury! Moviegoers were itching for some action this weekend, and having Brad Pitt in command certainly couldn't hurt, putting Fury on top of the box office this weekend with an estimated $23.5 million! The R-rated WWII movie's opening was a bit soft compared to the last two times Pitt went to war (Inglourious Basterds - $38 million; World War Z - $66.4 million). But it was a career high opening for director David Ayer, whose last movie, the Arnold »

17 October 2014 3:30 PM, PDT

Ok, so things are getting a little out of hand with Scott Derrickson's Doctor Strange. At this point, it would almost be easier to list the actors Marvel hasn't been rumored to be interested in to play the Sorcerer Supreme, all because Joaquin Phoenix decided to pass on the project. Tom Hardy was reportedly one of the actors Marvel was considering, however yesterday we learned he might be up for David Ayer's Suicide Squad, and now sources have told The Wrap »

Cool Videos: Watch the entire plot of The Hobbit in less than 90 seconds

17 October 2014 8:31 AM, PDT

Peter Jackson is not exactly known for brevity. Aside from the already immense running time of The Lord Of The Rings, the Extended Editions add hours of excised footage to complete the story. With The Hobbit, Jackson has a similarly dense film running time. Having been criticized for stretching a brief volume into a trilogy, Peter Jackson crammed The Hobbit films with both addendum material from the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien as well as original characters and changed storylines. In the »

Now the animation supervisor of that short, Patrick Osborne, is making his directorial debut with Feast.

Rumor: Jena Malone to play Robin in Batman V Superman

17 October 2014 6:17 AM, PDT

Set visits provide a good source for rumors, but don't necessarily amount to much in the endgame. For example, Kevin Smith was fortunate enough to drop by the set of J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII, but I somehow doubt we're going to see that image of a portly Stormtrooper running after the good guys. However, an older rumor has resurfaced about Batman V Superman that actually carries with it some logic. Furthermore, there is news about an integral scene »

See Chris Bumbray's Video Review Here! Plot: In April of 1945, the last month of World War II in Europe, a Sherman tank and its five-man crew pushes deep into Germany to eradicate all remaining Nazis. The story is told from the point-of-view of the crew's newest member, a young man for whom the war has been an abstract notion until now. Review: The fact that war is hell shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone at this point, although Hollywood has always tried to »

It's not too often in the film community that fans can get excited over something Not happening, but this is exactly one of those cases.

Oddly enough, a stage musical of the most entertaining time-traveling duo (bold claim, I know) is in the works. Regarding the »
