'Zoolander 2' Is Happening and Here's What You Need to Know

20 November 2014 1:14 PM, PST

As of today, Dumb and Dumber To -- a sequel to an absurd, 20-year-old comedy -- has been in theaters for less than a week and is already sitting on a box office haul of over $55 million. So when a simple, long-overdue sequel hits big, you can bet that Hollywood is paying attention. Enter Zoolander 2. The first Zoolander isn't quite as old as Dumb and Dumber, nor did it ever gain the same kind of household recognition, but it's had a very healthy life on DVD, cable and Netflix since...

It started out as a small movie about an all-female singing group, but not long after Pitch Perfect hit theaters it became an instant fan favorite, growing in popularity once it arrived on home video, and of course that meant a sequel wouldn't be too far away. Now we have the first trailer for Pitch Perfect 2, due in theaters on May 15, 2015, and... well, they crushed it. The Bellas are most definitely back, and this time they're going global.

19 November 2014 1:05 PM, PST

What does Disney's Cinderella look like as a big, colorful, live-action movie? Well, a lot like this.   Cinderella, coming out March 13, 2015, is the next in line after films like Alice in Wonderland and Maleficent to revisit some of Disney's classic characters in live-action form. This Cinderella looks like it very much sticks to the story we all know about the poor maiden harrassed by her wicked stepfamily whose magical fairy godmother (Helena Bonham Carter) makes her...

Should Tweens See the Latest 'Hunger Games' Movie?

18 November 2014 9:54 AM, PST

For all the Hunger Games movies so far, as a mom, I feel the best about older tweens and teens seeing Mockingjay – Part 1. The revolution is getting under way, and the violence is less personal and less morally hazy.  Parents will be relieved to know the kid-on-kid violence that was especially prevalent and disturbing in the previous films is now a thing of the past. With all that in mind, here are three compelling aspects of  Mockingjay -- Part 1 that I think...

18 November 2014 8:52 AM, PST

Jurassic World: A viral website for Jurassic World has emerged online. It doesn't disclose any significant plot details about the new movie (expect those in a trailer rumored to hit just before Thanksgiving), but if you're a fan of the original movies, it does help place Jurassic World in a timeline in context with the history of InGen as a company. It also gives us the below picture, which is our first official image of B.D. Wong -- the only returning actor/character from Jurassic...

This Popular Arnold Schwarzenegger Action Movie May Get a Sequel

17 November 2014 11:06 AM, PST

With The Hunger Games turning out to be one of the most successful recent franchises, it's no surprise that this popular 1987 action movie might return to screens as a reboot or sequel. Those familiar with Arnold Schwarzenegger's filmography should know exactly which film we're talking about. Yup, it's The Running Man, Schwarzenegger's (underrated, in our opinion) futuristic battle movie based on the Stephen King novel. In it, he's the star of a televised game that finds...
