Some movies leave fans hungry for more, with films like "The Godfather," "Star Wars," "Lethal Weapon" and "The Bourne Identity" tailor-made for sequelization. However, Hollywood has a depressingly long track record of truly unnecessary sequels. The weekend brings us "Grown Ups 2," and we thought it was the perfect time to take a look at 15 of the least necessary sequels ever made. »

Aziz Ansari, whose next show will be on Netflix.
Hi everyone! I wanted you guys to hear it from me first, that the cast and I received news that Eye Candy will not be returning for season 2. Even though a lot of you are going to feel sad/angry, please know that playing Lindy Sampson, is something that I loved and I will hold dear to my heart. I couldn’t have asked for better cast mates to work with either. They are the most down to earth, talented and kind souls that I am so happy to have met. Then there’s our show runner @Christiantwit1 who is so awesomely talented and made a show that I am so incredibly proud to be a part of. A very special thank »

Entertainment Weekly recently caught up with Daisy Ridley to talk Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and while the relatively unknown British actress obviously couldn't say much about her character Rey, she did have this to say about her favourite shooting location. "Weirdly enough, probably Abu Dhabi, even though it was so hot, it was like you literally can’t imagine that heat. The feeling of stepping onto a real set for the first time, it genuinely was a baptism of fire. To see creatures walking around and speeders chilling in the sand, that was amazing, and because I was shooting there, it was like everything had built up to that moment. So a few days in, I was like, Ok. I’m getting my groove now." Abu Dhabi doubled for Jakku in the Return of the Jedi follow-up, and you can get a better look at it in the images below. »

The proliferation of quality television programs like “Mad Men” and “Game of Thrones” has blurred the lines between small and big screen.
These shows aren’t just well-written and acted. They are painstakingly composed, benefiting from a cinematic quality that was absent in earlier eras of adult-driven programming.
Based on footage and studio presentations this week at CinemaCon, big screen auteurs such as Ang Lee, Robert Zemeckis and Alejandro González Iñárritu may be pushing back against the television revolution. The technologies and techniques used on films such as “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” and “The Revenant” can radicalize filmmaking and redefine the boundaries of cinema.
Lee’s “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” will be the first film in history to be shot in 120 frames per-second, which he told exhibitors will create a greater sense of immediacy and will help the film’s 3D crackle.
Zemeckis is also deploying 3D with “The Walk, »

Following his adventure in a galaxy far, far away this December in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Oscar Isaac is set to take on the role of the titular villain in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse, and during an interview with IGN to promote his latest film Ex Machina, Isaac shared a few thoughts on Apocalypse’s motivation, and his recruitment of the Four Horsemen.
“Without giving anything away, the recruitment of the Four Horsemen is very cool. It’s very interesting the way that he does that. You know the idea of – the way that cult leaders do – they find people that are in need of something and try to fulfill that thing in them – as it relates to every one of the Horseman… On an individual level he’s able to reveal the true power of his Horsemen and what’s true to them.

But before he climbed aboard an X-Wing fighter and jetted off to George Lucas. universe, Edwards dabbled in monster movies . specifically the indie hit Monsters (in 2010) and the mega-smash Godzilla reboot in 2014.

This week, Variety reported on a study that was released confirming what many already know about the film industry, or at the very least anecdotally: Women are having an increasingly hard time breaking in.
The study showed that there’s a large gender gap between independently financed and directed projects by women when compared to projects within the studio system. The Sundance Institute and Women in Film looked at movies in competition at Sundance between 2002 and 2014 compared to the top 1300 grossing films between the same time period. Men appeared at Sundance at a ratio of 3 to 1 more often than women, but an even more staggering 23 to 1 when looking at studio films.
Further, half of the industry executives surveyed believed that films directed by women did not appeal as broadly as films directed by men. A quarter of those surveyed added that they shared a “perceived lack of ambition” in women directors, »

Star Wars #4
Written by Jason Aaron
Art and Cover by John Cassaday
Colors by Laura Martin
Published by Marvel Comics
Following the series’ initial, action-packed story arc, Jason Aaron and John Cassaday settle in for a relatively quiet fourth issue. This is a breath-taking issue, a chance for the creators to focus on characterization and set some plots in motion. To wit, there’s Luke Skywalker, dealing with the reality of his (non)status as a Jedi following his confrontation with Darth Vader in the first arc. Also, Princess Leia pushes the Rebel Alliance to strike ever harder back at the Empire with the unstated implication being that she’s trying to keep busy so as to avoid dealing with all the changes in her life wrought by the events of A New Hope. Meanwhile, Darth Vader is on Tatooine brokering a deal with Jabba the Hutt and a mysterious »

How much money do you think Star Wars: The Force Awakens is going to make? Do you think it will exceed The Avengers? Or Titanic? How about Avatar? If you ask the experts, they are all predicting that J.J. Abrams' film could break the records in multiple categories. Specifically, many are predicting a global opening weekend north of $500 million for the sequel to George Lucas' saga. The Hollywood Reporter cites several industry analysts who have looked at the returns for »

I was a fan of the Star Wars expanded universe. I got as excited for getting new Star Wars galleys as I did getting a new China Mieville, George R.R. Martin, or Steven Erikson Arc, and Timothy Zahn’s core 5 books in the EU, the Thrawn Trilogy and following duology, are among my favorite chapters of Star Wars history Period from any medium. Even the most enthusiastic fan of Star Wars and the work Del Rey has done with the license, however, will admit there have been lows to go along with highs, many of them seem universally agreed upon, and many others are personal gems or dislikes that make the conversation that much more interesting. I think it helpful to know where people stand or stood on former works, so with that in mind, along with the Zahn contributions, I really enjoyed what Karen Traviss accomplished with Stormtroopers, I »

One of the films going into wide release, over in the Us, is The Age of Adaline, a romantic drama about an immortal woman who may start aging again for the man she loves (which sounds a bit like Spring, but with less tentacles...). In the film, the father of that man is played by Harrison Ford, so what a splendid opportunity to dedicate this week's quiz to him! Of course, being in The Age of Adaline hardly was what was on everyone's mind this week regarding Harrison Ford. His brief appearance in the trailer for the new Star Wars film The Force Awakens warmed the heart of many a fan. Because let's face it: he is the scoundrel who shoots first, the man with...

With filming expected to start in the next couple months, expect to start hearing more and more about casting on Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One. Reports have come in now about two potential cast members being added to the roster. Come inside to check it out!
Thanks to Star Wars Celebration, we now have some official details on Rogue One. It's a heist movie in which rebel forces attempt to steal the Death Star plans. It'll be something like a Dirty Dozen, or Magnificent Seven, kind of film in that it will feature a big group of people working together. Thus, we'll have quite a few cast members to report on before too long. The Wrap got the word on two actors being looked at for roles in the film: Riz Ahmed (who was awesome in Nightcrawler) and Sam Claflin (who most will know from The Hunger Games films).
