Christmas is a magical time. It’s a time when people come together, put aside their differences and truly, live for the moment. Sure, there are some pessimists who say that the spirit of the holidays has been perverted by the corporate conglomerates who are trying to bleed every last penny from the general populace, but to them I say ,“Bah humbug”.
The holidays are what you make it. If you want to get all pissy because someone wants to sing a Christmas carol and bake you cookies, thats your prerogative. Me and mine? We’re gonna eat those cookies dammit, and we’re going to watch the heck out of Die Hard. Why? Because it’s Christmas. I mean, it could be worse. You could be a drugged up in a hospital bed, hallucinating a blue horse with wings. »

Female villains in the movies can usually be placed into two categories; the mentally deranged psychopath and the provocative seductress. This isn’t always the case of course, but it’s a fairly accurate basis to draw on. In honour of the nasty and glamorous sorceress Mizuki in 47 Ronin – the samurai epic out this December starring Keanu Reeves – we’ve reminisced on our favourite on-screen feminine scoundrels in cinema history. Mizuki has a tendency to turn into a dragon and go on rants about corpses and rivers of blood. In this list she joins the conniving, the insane, the alluring and the devilishly sexy. They’re all here, and we just love to hate them.
Mizuki – 47 Ronin (2013 Dir. Carl Rinsch)
Best Line: “Mountains of corpses will not stand in our way”
Morally dubious on the largest possible scale, this shape-shifting witch in upcoming action-fantasy epic 47 Ronin has the ability to »

Even though the "Twilight" franchise has been staked (for now at least) and "True Blood" is facing its final season before taking that last long, ashy walk into the sun, Hollywood is looking for its next vampire smash, and they might have found it in the forthcoming "Vampire Academy," if the just-released trailer (courtesy of Yahoo Movies) is any indication. While vampire movies are always an iffy proposition, this one looks like it definitely won't suck.
The tone of the movie is established early on, both as a young human girl (Zoey Deutch) offers up her neck to her vampire Bff (Lucy Fry), and by the giant title card that announces the film as from "the director of 'Mean Girls.'" Oh, okay. So it's that kind of vampire movie.
Based on the trailer, and honestly things aren't completely clear from the clip, it seems to be centered around »

Plans for Beetlejuice 2 seem to be gathering momentum, and the suggestion remains that Tim Burton will return to make his first sequel since 1992's Batman Returns. Nothing has been officially confirmed with regards personnel (outside of the writing team: Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg), but it wouldn't be much of a film if Michael Keaton didn't return, for a start. He's indicated, fortunately, that he will be back.
Furthermore, it looks as if Winona Ryder is on board, too. She was chatting to The Daily Beast, and was asked if she was set to return to reprise the role of Lydia Deetz in the new movie. Confirming that the new film is not a remake, she then said that "I'm kind of sworn to »
Last month, we reported that Beetlejuice 2 may finally be making its way to production 25 years after the 1988 cult classic hit theatres. Original director of the horror-comedy hit, Tim Burton (Edward Scissorhands, Batman) and his lead star Michael Keaton (Batman, Batman Returns) have both been reported to return for the sequel. The only question left on peoples lips was whether or not the wonderful Winona Ryder would be involved in Beetlejuice 2.
Now Ryder has confirmed in a recent interview that she would be interested in doing the sequel and it sounds as if she is pretty much locked so long as Burton and Keaton are involved. Ryder played Lydia, a Gothic teenager who moved into the haunted house, along with her father and step mother, still occupied by a recently deceased couple who call on the mischievous title character for help. You can read the interview with Ryder below: »

var brightcovevideoid = '2842281648001'; It's good to know we're not the only ones who fell in love with Batkid, the 5-year-old who dressed up as Batman to fight crime in San Francisco on Friday. Miles, who is now in remission after being diagnosed with leukemia at just 18 months of age, has become a worldwide star after the Make-a-Wish Foundation turned the city by the bay into Gotham City for one unforgettable experience. Former Caped Crusader Christian Bale heard about Miles' adventure and told New York magazine that he thought it was "fantastic." Bale, who's been shooting the upcoming film Moses in Spain, »

While some actors can’t even get their mail without being spotted, there are others with the exact opposite problem: costume actors. It’s strange that someone can play such iconic characters as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man or Michael Myers and then completely go under our radar. For example, the following actors, mostly known for their costumed characters, have also appeared unmasked in other roles you might not have even noticed… 7. The Pale Man is in John Dies At The End Doug Jones’s primary trade is having a bunch of crazy prosthetic bullshit all over his face. In Pan’s Labyrinth he was not only the Pale Man, but that goat thing as well. In Hellboy he was Abe Sapien, and he even had a role as a clown in Batman Returns. In fact, other than John Dies At The End – a film where he plays a leech-wielding dimension hopper – I can’t recall a »

Poor Ben Affleck. Let’s face it, if you were offered the chance to be Batman, you’d snap the offering hand off – Affleck does so, and he almost breaks the internet. Recent superb performances in Argo and The Town were instantly forgotten by Batman fanboys, and wrathful asides to Gigli and the awful Daredevil were scrawled across forums and websites. Truly, a poisoned chalice.
I didn’t personally agree with the casting of Affleck in the forthcoming Superman Vs Batman film, though not for reasons concerning the poor fella’s acting chops. I suspect he’ll probably make a better Bruce Wayne than Batman, but he has matured as an actor in recent years enough for him to do a better job than some of his predecessors in the role. My main concern is that, if the storyline is to follow the same trajectory as Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight »

A new trailer for Mark Waters’ Vampire Academy has a bit of additional footage not seen in the previously released trailer. Adapted by Daniel Waters (Batman Returns), the Richelle Mead novel series follows Rose Hathaway, a bodyguard for her best friend and Moroi vampire princess, Lissa. The pair faces the dangers of St. Vladimir’s Academy while navigating forbidden romances and awkward social situations. The new trailer cut is almost identical to the first one, except for a zinger tagged on to the end. Starring Zoey Deutch, Lucy Fry, Danila Kozlovsky, Gabriel Byrne, Sarah Hyland, Joely Richardson, Cameron Monaghan, Sami Gayle, Claire Foy and Ashley Charles, Vampire Academy opens February 14, 2014. Hit the jump to watch the trailer.

Movies live forever, we all know that. They come out and do whatever business they are going to do at the box office, and then it is up to time to decide what we will think of them in the years to come. Some like Casablanca become beloved classics, while others such as Blade Runner become cult favourites despite their failure at the box office. Yet there is however another trend, one that has befallen a number of films. That trend is when people decide to start hating on great movies. I have been trying to get people to call this Forrest Gumping, though I’m pretty sure that it’s not going to catch on.
These are movies that were big hits, seemingly everyone loved them, and then suddenly the hate started coming. So why does this happen? Is the newfound hate justified? For some movies perhaps it is, »

A bit of a delay since the last instalment, it's been a hectic few days, but here we are. We started last time by talking about a vastly underrated superhero film, The Punisher (2004). Funnily enough, Marvel's gone to the bank on that intellectual property three times in hopes of a successful and popular adaptation, with it failing financially on every count. So it only seems suiting we follow that trend with a look at another adaptation of the skull-wearing vigilante with a glance at The Punisher (1989) starring Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables, Rocky IV)

There's a certain irony in looking at the cinematic landscape of the 70's-80's compared to now, in regards to DC's and Marvel's battle for supremacy over the cinematic market. The Superman films were highly acclaimed, »
Batman: Arkham Origins shouldn’t have happened. It shouldn’t be. How did a brand new developer working from the abandoned toolbox of one of this generation’s finest teams, self-exiled with cast and writer in tow, and on an origin story of all things, pull off one of this generation’s last great upsets? Arkham Origins may have everything going against it, but it’ll take the most cynical among you to fault it, try though I’m sure you will.
It’s often a sure sign that a creator has run out of ideas when they turn to a character’s unexplored past for their latest endeavour: it’s like writing a story backwards, and it seems as though it’s always a lot easier to create a beginning once you have an ending. Worse yet, there’s always the sense that you can’t be surprised »

What had ETonline readers buzzing this week?
1. Jamie Dornan to Replace Hunnam in '50 Shades'
Well, that was quick! A little more than a week after Charlie Hunnam dropped out of playing the kinky billionaire Christian Grey, the erotic book-turned-movie, Fifty Shades of Grey, has cast a new leading man!
ETonline can confirm that Irish actor Jamie Dornan (Once Upon a Time, Marie Antoinette) will replace the Sons of Anarchy star in the role of Christian Grey, opposite Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele, in the upcoming film adaptation of E.L. James' sexy bestseller.
At this time, Universal and Focus Features have declined to comment on the casting news (first reported by Variety and The Hollywood Reporter).
On October 12, a statement was released by the studios producing the movie explaining that Hunnam's busy TV schedule made it impossible for him to sufficiently prepare for the role of Christian Grey.
In the 28 years that Tim Burton has been making feature-length films he’s made a sequel only once: “Batman Returns,” the 1992 sequel to “Batman” in 1989. Of course there is “Frankenweenie,” but that’s a feature-length remake/expansion Burton's 1984 short film of the same name. And while the Halloween-friendly filmmaker has managed to avoid sequels for two decades since, he’s about to jump into that fray once more with a sequel to 1988’s “Beetlejuice.” While the rumor had been circling unsubstantiated around the Internet for the last few days, The Wrap confirms that Burton is actually in talks to helm the sequel that is being penned by Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg, the screenwriters of Burton’s “Dark Shadows,” the Burton-produced "Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter" and the as-of-yet unproduced “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” (they’re also doing a polish on the “Fantastic Four” reboot). Michael Keaton is expected to »
