Harlock Space Pirate 3-D

6 hours ago | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Ray guns! Space armadas! Storm troopers! Toei's manga became a pricey 3-D animated motion capture epic just three years ago, but was denied a release stateside. This collector's disc set gives us rude 'n' raucous space battles, along with a pirate's bounty of original Japanese extras. Don't worry, the 3-D visuals are excellent.

Napoleon Dynamite Cut As An Inspirational Drama Is Bizarre And Funny, Watch It Now

11 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The magic of the internet means that you can now slice and edit famous movie footage into anything you desire. Want to know what R2-D2 was thinking throughout Star Wars? You got it. What about a compilation of various movie characters uttering, "I should have killed him when I had the chance?" That.s there too. And that.s just what we found today. Yet another YouTube video that we stumbled upon today is Napoleon Dynamite re-cut as an inspirational drama, and, rather oddly, it actually works.  I think I.d still rather see Jared Hess. original droll 2004 comedy, but I found myself being a tad inspired and impressed by the potential this dramatic version of Napoleon Dynamite. That abruptly came to an end when I remembered this was the same film that featured the quote, "Tina, you fat lard, come get some dinner." The dramatic incarnation of Napoleon »

'Indiana Jones' Easter Egg Discovered in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

11 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been in theaters for 50 days. And new Easter eggs are still being discovered. Today's big reveal is actually pretty cool. Especially since it's tied into Indiana Jones. And it comes at a crucial point in the movie involving Han Solo and Chewbacca. It literally ties Harrison Ford's two iconic characters together in one fail swoop. You just need to know what to 'listen' for.

Director J.J. Abrams has decided to cram so many hidden nods and references in The Force Awakens, that it has become a virtual game for some. And it's a game that requires multiple viewings. Some of the Easter Eggs are so well hidden, though, that they are likely to fly right over your head. Luckily, those involved with the behind-the-scenes work on the film have been eager to share some of their more obscure references. And the Raiders of the Lost Ark »

Box Office: ‘Kung Fu Panda 3’ Dominates ‘Caesar,’ ‘Zombies,’ ‘Choice’

12 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Po the Panda will rule the U.S. box office again with Fox’s “Kung Fu Panda 3″ nabbing at least $20 million at 3,955 theaters this weekend, early estimates showed Friday.

The animated comedy will leave a trio of new entries in the dust during a typically subdued Super Bowl weekend, led by Universal’s George Clooney comedy “Hail, Caesar!” with $9.5 million at 2,231 sites. The Coen Brothers’ look at 1950s Hollywood commanded a moderate $3.5 million on Friday, including $543,000 in Thursday night previews.

Sony’s horror-drama spoof “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” was headed for $9 million at 2,930 sites with a $3 million opening day on Friday. The movie is based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s parody of  Jane Austen’s iconic 1813 novel.

Only a modest number of moviegoers were choosing “The Choice,” which opened Friday with about $2.5 million at 2,631 sites on its way to a $6.5 million weekend for Lionsgate’s romancer.

Star Wars: What Do Boba Fett, Imperial Costumes and Eels Have To Do With 'Rogue One?'

13 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

This is a column about speculation, spoilers, rumors, hearsay and analyzing the Star Wars Universe. Spoilers, real or imagined, might be found within.  

Let's start by congratulating ourselves : big claps to The Force Awakens for making all that money. I’m not going to be able to say it more concisely than the official press release:

Today, in its 50th day of release, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is expected to cross the $900 million mark at the domestic box office. It is the only film in history to reach this milestone.

In addition, on Saturday (53rd day of global release), Star Wars: The Force Awakens is expected to reach the $2 billion mark worldwide, becoming only the third film ever to do so and just the second to do it in original release.

We did it, Star Wars fans and creators, we revived the property once again! This time, maybe »

14 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It had already taken the crown of the highest-grossing North American release of all time back in early January, and now after fifty days on screens Disney and Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens has become the first film in history to pass $900 million at the domestic box office.

“The film’s achievements are truly astounding, and it’s our great honor to relaunch this cinematic galaxy not only for all the devoted decades-long fans but for a new generation who will keep the Star Wars legacy alive for many years to come,” states Disney’s Alan Horn.

Worldwide, The Force Awakens is expected to become only the third film ever to reach $2 billion this Saturday after James Cameron’s Titanic ($2.18 billion) and Avatar ($2.78 billion).

Hilarious Star Wars Video Guesses What R2-D2 Was Actually Saying

15 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

R2-D2.s beeps and sounds have been the topic of much discussion amongst Star Wars fans. What did the droid mean with his utterances? Was he just passively joining in the conversation? Or was he responding like a petulant child? Well, one Star Wars fan has created a video guessing what R2-D2 was actually saying to Anakin Skywaler, Padme Amidala, Luke Skywalker, and C3PO. And it.s downright hilarious.  Kudos to YouTube stalwart My Insane Reality for creating such a terrific video, which suggests that R2-D2 has a much sharper wit, and quite a bit of rage, programmed into him than we first thought. There was obviously an awful lot of Star Wars footage for My Insane Reality to choose from while creating this video. And he did a sterling job picking bits that were ripe for comedy. Starting off with Hayden Christensen.s Anakin Skywalker »

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' fell fall short of 'Avatar's' box office record. Here's why.

16 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The latest press release from Disney confirms once again the following irrefutable fact: Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a massive box office hit. But the numbers put forth today also confirm the predictions of the box office experts we surveyed several weeks ago: there's simply no way J.J. Abrams' franchise reboot can touch Avatar's worldwide record of more than $2.7 billion. It would take a great cynic indeed to sniff at these Star Wars numbers. The film is by far the domestic box-office champ, having now racked up over $900 million in North American receipts in its 50th day of release (Avatar made $749 million). It will also pass the $2 billion mark globally on Saturday. But it's still a whopping $700 million off from Avatar's worldwide take, thanks to a less-robust-than-expected performance in several key international markets including Russia, China and South Korea.  In Korea, for example, Avatar made over »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens About To Cross Two New Box Office Milestones

16 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While much of the hype surrounding Star Wars: The Force Awakens has now died down, as it.s been out for nearly two months, the movie isn.t quite done breaking records yet. Today The Walt Disney Company announced that the movie has hit another movie milestone, and is expected to hit another before the weekend is out. The Force Awakens has now become the first movie to gross $900 million at the U.S. box office. The Mouse House also expects the film to crack the $2 billion global box office mark sometime on Saturday. The Force Awakens became the number one domestic movie quite a while ago when it bypassed Avatar.s $760 million total. Since then the film has just been piling on and increasing its lead, making it that much harder for any future film to bypass its success. Even future Star Wars movies will likely have difficulty competing. »

10 Movies That Could Be The Big Surprise Hit Of 2016

17 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Wow, 2016 is a big year for movies, right? A Star Wars spin-off, more superhero flicks than ever before, a bunch of slick CGI reboots of old properties and not to mention the barrage of sequels to classic movies. The box office better be ready.

But while there’s some guaranteed hits in there (and a few duds – does anybody really expect The Legend Of Tarzan to succeed?), there’s no avoiding that with the blockbusters we’re only getting half the story. After all, these movie’s hype machines have been in gear since before some of the year’s smaller releases were even conceived, meaning we knew about them well before the year kicked off. But there’s a whole host of movies that will define the year we haven’t even considered yet

At the start 2015, would everybody have expected films like Room or Brooklyn to »

Super Bowl Movie Trailers: Alice Through the Looking Glass, The Jungle Book and more during the big game

18 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

As much as we love football, the most exciting part of Super Bowl Sunday is definitely all of the high profile movie trailers that are about to drop. While the big event is a highlight of the year for sports fans, it also delivers for movie lovers.

We already have good insight as to what may be dropping on Super Bowl Sunday. Disney is making waves with their recently released Alice Through the Looking Glass teaser, and also promise a closer look at the up-coming live-action reboot of The Jungle Book. We’re also going to bet that we’ll see something epic for Captain America: Civil War, and if we’re really lucky, maybe even a sneak peek at the Star Wars prequel, Rogue One.

With Deadpool and Zoolander 2 out next Friday, it’s pretty much a guarantee that we’ll be seeing a lot of Ben Stiller »
