10 Awful 2014 Movies That Deserved To Bomb At The Box Office

3 December 2014 7:39 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

It’s been a slow year for Hollywood at the box office, with the industry reporting the worst slump for summer takings in eight years and one studio executive lamenting, “I wish I worked at Netflix.”

It’s not all been bad – there have been more than a few hits, with Guardians Of The Galaxy, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Lego Movie all performing very well, while a few other less deserving movies, such as the latest Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, raked in bucketloads of cash for their investors.

No one really likes to see a film performing badly – people (normally) work very hard to make the product the best it can be – but some movies are different. These are the films which simply don’t live up to the standards moviegoers expect when they shell out what is essentially the price of a »

Sons Of Anarchy Review: “Red Rose” (Season 7, Episode 12)

Sons Of Anarchy Review: “Red Rose” (Season 7, Episode 12) 1 of 5

Transformers

Lorem ipsum 1 of 5

In the real world, there are consequences. Television writers, on the other hand, make a living from creating stories which can’t seem to help but incessantly glorify violence and gloss over the aftermath. It makes for good TV, watching the “bad guys” get what’s coming to them and watching the “good guys” ride off into the sunset – but sometimes it’s also the easy way out. If “Red Roses” accomplished anything, it’s that Sons of Anarchy is by no means taking the easy way out as it sets the stage for the series finale.

As a whole, Sons of Anarchy has done an admirable job all along of not sugarcoating the fallout of Samcro’s decisions. There’s been a consistently high body count left in the show’s wake, but »

28 November 2014 6:06 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Now that Thanksgiving is over for another year and we’ve ate our body mass in turkey sandwiches, all eyes are trained across the Internet to take full advantage of those enticing Black Friday deals. And to get in the holiday spirit, Microsoft has unveiled its huge promotion for Black Friday, with discounts on a variety of Xbox Live titles that are set to continue throughout the weekend. For a detailed rundown on the reductions, check out the gallery below.

Encompassing both Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles, the limited sale slashes the asking prices of some of this year’s biggest releases, including Watch Dogs and Bungie’s shared-world shooter Destiny, which are available for 33% and 10% off, respectively. If triple-a experiences aren’t your cup of tea, though, fear not: there are an abundance of smaller titles up for sale too.

Chief among those is Battleblock Theater and Ubisoft’s »

Mila Kunis Is A Cosmic Linchpin In Stunning New Trailer For Jupiter Ascending

25 November 2014 9:37 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When a film receives a last-minute delay in the vein of the Wachowski’s Jupiter Ascending, it’s tricky for studios to market the movie all over again in the build-up to release without leaving members of the audience feeling a little jaded. Initially due to arrive during the primetime summer months, Warner Bros. pushed the space-faring adventure all the way back to February to give VFX artists adequate time to render the filmmakers’ grand, galactic vision.

And today, the studio pulled a double whammy by unveiling a new international trailer all the while releasing a selection of beautiful stills that hint at some of the locales we can expect when the film finally debuts early next year.

Starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Eddie Redmayne, Tuppence Middleton, Douglas Booth and Sean Bean, Jupiter Ascending tells the tale of Kunis’ everyday, earthbound girl who dreams big. Unbeknownst to her, her Jupiter »

The Totally Crazy Ways Hollywood Uses Fire To Sell Movies

12 November 2014 11:11 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

In the newly released poster for Insurgent, we see a brave, stoic Shailene Woodley standing on top of a cube-shaped building which is on fire. It's also floating in mid-air through the middle of a post-apocalyptic cityscape, but that's beside the point.

.

While admittedly the poster is a bit surreal and a tad confusing (although, a lot is explained by Insurgent's teaser trailer… sort of), what really seems to set the tone is the blazing inferno raging beneath Woodley's feet, pouring out of the windows.

It's almost as if the poster designers were worried that the strange image of a warrior woman on a floating building wouldn't be eye-catching enough. However, like sex and the color red, fire is used all the time by poster designers for a whole multitude of reasons – and with an equally large variety of insane results.

What are the Most Expensive Movie Trilogies of All Timec

22 October 2014 12:37 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

One of the most talked about pieces of news today surrounds the report that Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy, which will come to a so-called "definitive" end on December 17 with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has already run up a $745 million price tag when you take into account the production budget on all three movies. Make no mistake, that's a lot of money, and it really calls into question the so-called $281 million budget for the first three Lord of the Rings movies, but that's what's been reported, though I have seen it as high as $310 million. Taking all this into account I decided to start doing a little research so I hit up Box Office Mojo (and Wikipedia when necessary) in an attempt to find out just what exactly are the most expensive movie trilogies of all-time and I have a list of 50 of them directly below. »

Prepare for Cross-Over Fun with ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Ghostbusters’ #1

21 October 2014 6:10 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Cross-overs have been a staple of the comic book business since before Superman met Bugs Bunny. For the publishers, the crossover is an easy way to sell books. For fans, it’s either a dream come true or an over hyped nightmare of biblical proportions. When a crossover works, it benefits the consumer to no end. Idw has had their fair share of success with their recent crossover series. From the over-top throwback Transformers Vs. GI Joe to the recently announced X-Files and Millennium, Idw is giving just what the fans want. This week, the company mashes together two of their more celebrated, and culturally loved properties, with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Ghostbusters #1.

Tmnt writer Tom Waltz and Ghostbusters writer Erik Burnham join forces to craft the tale. When a new invention goes haywire, the Turtles are sent to a whole new type of New York City. One with a whole lot more ghosts… »

Every 'Simpsons' 'Treehouse of Horror' short, ranked

Update: The list has been amended to include the three segments from "Treehouse of Horror Xxv." That's right: In honor of The Simpsons' 25th (!) annual Halloween special, EW didn't just rank the top 25 "Treehouse of Horror" segments. We took things a step further by ranking every single "Treehouse" segment ever seen on the show—and you'll find entries 72 through 26 in the list below. Even when longtime fans sniff that The SimpsonsGolden Age is long past, they can agree that late-period Simpsons Halloween shows still pack a punch. Why? Because "Treehouse" segments give the series' writers a break »

10 Unlikely Halloween Costumes Based On Recent Movies

6 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

You can tell how boring a movie year is by the state of new Halloween costume ideas each fall. At least in terms of memorable characters. When I walk into one of those seasonal pop-up shops and see the same superheroes year after year joined still, a decade after, by Napoleon Dynamite-style “nerd” package costumes, I worry that there isn’t enough fresh and popular movie iconography being entered into the history books of late. What is the 2014 film zeitgeist but more Spider-Man, Captain America, X-Men, Transformers and Hunger Games? New costumes are repeats of old, like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (and even my old unlikely X-Men meet Forrest Gump and Smurfette ideas), or based on already familiar icons, like Lego people. Frozen is new but familiar. Same with most of the characters in Guardians of the Galaxy, to a degree. If you want to go against the grain of the mainstream and easily recognized »

China Packs Hollywood Pics Into October, Paving Clear Path For Local December Heavyweights (Video)

5 October 2014 6:54 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

With China‘s National Day holiday week still in swing, the box office got an extra boost this frame thanks to the timely release of Breakup Buddies, a sort of follow-up to 2012’s smash hit Lost In Thailand. Playing on half the screens in the massive market, the film grossed just under $38M in China this weekend, sending its cume since release on September 30 to about $93M. (It also went out in the U.S., Australia and New Zealand at the weekend.) The original film was arguably responsible for a reversal in China’s fortunes in December 2012, when box office share was lagging behind that of U.S. films. That year ended with Hollywood out front but Lost In Thailand made global headlines and bolstered the unofficial practice of blackout periods when no foreign studio movies are released, allowing high-profile local titles to goose box office in the People’s Republic. »

15 '80s TV Shows That Would Make Suprisingly Awesome Movies

26 September 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"The Equalizer," Denzel Washington's big-screen take on the 1980s TV action series about a middle-aged badass-for-hire, may be a perfectly fine movie. Still, here's a question for Hollywood: once you're adapting "The Equalizer," doesn't it mean you've dipped into the '80s TV well a few times too many?

"Equalizer" joins such '80s TV-to-film adaptations as "The A-Team," "Miami Vice," "Inspector Gadget," "He-Man," the "Transformers" franchise, the "G.I. Joe" movies, and the various "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" reboots.. Plus, the team that made a hit film franchise out of "21 Jump Street" will try to work similar magic on "The Greatest American Hero."

You'd think there wouldn't be any gold left to mine from the "Sold Gold" decade. But you'd be wrong. Digging around in the nostalgia pit, Moviefone unearthed at least 15 more '80s TV series that could become successful movies, if they're done right. Here are our »

Exclusive: Cbm Chats With Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen)

23 September 2014 12:06 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

I recently had the opportunity to speak with the man behind many of the voices I grew up listening to in the mornings, after school and even on the weekends.  Peter Cullen is known throughout the world not only as the voice of the wise and heroic leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime, in the 1980s The Transformers cartoon series, but he was also the voice of various other robots including Ironhide, Slugslinger, Streetwise, Wingspan and Nightstick. He reprised the voices of Optimus and Ironhide in the 1986 ?The Transformers: The Movie? film. In 2007 Cullen returned as Optimus Prime in Michael Bay's live-action Transformers film and it's subsequent sequels. Cullen has also lent his talents to the somber voice of Eeyore in The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. He has lent his voice to Knight Rider (K.A.R.R.), The Pirates of Dark Water (Mantus), Dungeons and Dragons (Venger), Voltron, »

Buster Jones, Voice Actor on ‘Super Friends,’ Dies at 71

17 September 2014 3:21 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Buster Jones, an actor on Hanna-Barbera’s “Super Friends” cartoon, which ran on ABC on Saturday mornings fr0m 1973-76, died on Sept. 16 in North Hollywood, Calif. He was 71.

He is probably best known from his role as Black Vulcan in “Super Friends” (the 1980-2 version, which was the fifth incarnation of the series).

The actor also played Blaster in “The Transformers,” Doc in “G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero” and Winston Zeddemore in “The Real Ghostbusters” (subbing in for Arsenio Hall) and later in “Extreme Ghostbusters.”

While “Super Friends” featured the superheroes of the DC comicbook world, Jones’ character Black Vulcan was a creation of Hanna-Barbera.

Edward L. “Buster” Jones was born in Paris, Tennessee. “I got out of Paris by playing music,” he told Marc Tyler Nobleman in a 2011 interview.

Jones went to Lane College in Jackson, Tennessee, then played in a series of bands, including in London. »

Let's Cast the 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' Reboot!

16 September 2014 1:13 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Who is the new Jennifer Love Hewitt? Who is her Freddie Prinze Jr.?

We'll always know what you did last summer*. Because Sony won’t let us forget.

Deadline recently reported that the studio is rebooting I Know What You Did Last Summer, the 1997 slasher film about a group of college kids (Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr. and Ryan Phillippe) who cover up their hit-and-run, only to be stalked and slayed by the very person they thought they killed.

Now our ultimate dream cast for this reboot is present day J.Love, Smg, Freddie Prinze, and Ryan P. playing the same roles they did two decades ago (most are available), but since that definitely won’t happen, we brainstormed a few suggestions:

Looking back at… Sonic the Hedgehog (1993 – 1994)

16 September 2014 4:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen looks back at Sonic the Hedgehog

During the early 90s, one blue hedgehog ruled pop culture with a string of successful video games for Sega’s flagship Genesis console (or Mega Drive if you’re in the UK). And while we never did get a live-action movie of Sonic the Hedgehog like Nintendo did with their mascot, we did get not one, but two animated shows in the same year. One was a bizarre little romp known as The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog and the other was simply known as Sonic the Hedgehog.

First airing in September 1993, Sonic the Hedgehog ran for 26 episodes over two seasons and had a much darker edge than its child-like counterpart. Where The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog featured bright and bombastic colours and ambiance, Sonic the Hedgehog (or Satam as it’s also known) was gritty, dirty and unlike the games »

Tim's Toons: Some voice actors you should know

11 September 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Tim here. Earlier today, we posted our Team Top 10 for the best voice performances in the movies, focusing on ten individual performances that impressed us the most. But as good as those vocal performances all are, I wanted to follow that post up by singing the praises of a different sort of voice acting. As great as any one performance in a single feature film can be, there’s also something truly exceptional about those people who have created entire careers out of voice acting without necessarily having the kind of showcase roles we were talking about today. With that in mind, I’d like to share this list of some of the most important contemporary voice actors that you should know about. 

Jim Cummings

Why you know him: He’s the current voice of Winnie the Pooh and Tigger for Disney.

Geeky antiques from the past 35 years

10 September 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From action figures and games to books and comics, we take a look at a few geeky antiques from the past decades...

In August, eBay revealed that a near-mint copy of Action Comics issue one - famously, the first time Superman made an appearance in print - had sold for an eye-watering $3.2m. One of only 50 copies said to still exist, the comic’s sale price is reportedly the highest yet - it far outstrips the $2.16m another copy sold for in 2011.

Now, it’s extremely unlikely that any of us are going to find our own copy of Action Comics issue one in our loft or in a box in the back of the cupboard, but given that most geeks usually collect one kind of object or another - whether it be comics, games, toys, posters or other treasured items - there’s still a possibility that one or »
