Lightning McQueen is back! The first official trailer for Cars 3 dropped this week. McQueen has endured the biggest car wreck of his life and a new generation of racers are leaving him in their dust. But with a little help from trainer and racing technician Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo), McQueen sets out to prove that #95 is still the best there ever was, and the best there ever will be. It will be Pixar's biggest showdown when Lightning McQueen races newcomer and top dog Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer) on Piston Cup's grandest stage. Owen Wilson returns as Lightning McQueen,

Marc Alan Fishman: If I Could Be A Super-Hero…

  • Comicmix
… I’d probably opt to not.

It’s that rare question kids pose to one another in an effort to ensure they can field their own Justice League at a moment’s notice. Why else do many of us turn to comic book heroes as children if but to live vicariously through their adventures – and in turn relish in the delight of super-human abilities?

Prior to the race to space, pulp heroes were more often than not akin to modern-day Batmen minus all the swearing, gravel-voiced threats and plucky pre-pubescent sidekicks: human beings granted the time, energy, and personal wealth enough to be at peak physical and mental strength. Around the time we split the atom. science fiction boomed, and, Superman and the mighty demi-gods of the day were joined by sets of super-powered show-offs in sparkly suits. I’d like to think shortly after said boom, the schoolyard became

A response to Idris Elba

Anthony Stokes with a response to Idris Elba and his recent Marvel comments…

Recently, Idris dropped a huge spoiler for Avengers: Age of Ultron, and later started bad mouthing his experience working on Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World. He claimed that he felt silly during an VFX shot where he was in a harness with a helmet and hair piece, having just come from filming Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. Part of me understands where he’s coming from but another part is extremely frustrated.

I don’t like making personal attacks on people, especially such a nice guy, so I’m going to try to be as fair as possible to Idris Elba here. I understand that being an actor can be a lot harder then people give it credit for. Most actors are very charming and grateful people, so when they complain we tend to be a

Final: ‘Fury’ Wins Box Office War With $23.7M; ‘Book Of Life’ At $17M; ‘Gone Girl’ $100M+; ‘Best Of Me’ $10M – B.O. Final

Final: ‘Fury’ Wins Box Office War With $23.7M; ‘Book Of Life’ At $17M; ‘Gone Girl’ $100M+; ‘Best Of Me’ $10M – B.O. Final
Final Update, 1:32 Pm: Fury ended the weekend at $23.7M for Sony and Qed, so it underperformed all the tracking (gee what a surprise), social media metrics, and expectations just a little. But it will likely still make money all in after its domestic, international and home entertainment run. I understand that there were significant profit participations on this one. Fox and Reel FX’s The Book Of Life closed the weekend on the high end of our estimate with $17M and will have some playtime again over the next two weekends as no new offerings are in the family zone until Big Hero 6 bows from Disney on November 7. The other newbie, Relativity’s The Best Of Me, was soft with $10M. Gone Girl is now sitting pretty at $106.7M after three weeks in release for Fox and New Regency.

Box Office: 'Fury' wins the war with $23.5 million as 'Birdman' soars in limited release

Box Office: 'Fury' wins the war with $23.5 million as 'Birdman' soars in limited release
David Ayers' "Fury" hit theaters hard this weekend and the World War II era drama easily took down two-time champ "Gone Girl" with $23.5 million.  Starring Brad Pitt, Shia Labeouf and Logan Lerman, among others, "Fury" is reported to have cost $68 million.  This writer has heard it actually cost over $100 million, but we'll go with the studio's number at this point.  The one thing everyone can agree on, however, is that "Fury" was fully financed by Qed International and it will need significant international returns to break even.  Considering Pitt's overseas star power that may not be a concern.  "Fury" also marks Sony Pictures third no. 1 opener in a row after Screen Gems' surprise hit "No Good Deed" and Columbia Pictures' "The Equalizer." David Fincher's "Gone Girl" dropped to no. 2, but New Regency and 20th Century Fox are still smiling.  "Girl" surpassed the $100 million mark in just

‘Monstrumologist’ Movie in the Works at Warner Bros. (Exclusive)

Warner Bros. is looking for monsters, picking up movie rights to Rick Yancey’s four-book “Monstrumologist” series.

“Monstrumoligist” has been set up with Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith Vein and State Street’s Bob Teitel. Exec producers are Eric Robinson at Gotham Group and George Tillman, Jr. at State Street.

The studio has hired Jessica Postigo to adapt the script. Her credits include “Mortal Instruments: the City of Bones.”

The story is set in 1888, launching with a nightmarish specimen carted to the monstrumologist’s home — an anthropuphagi, a vicious man-eating creature without a head.

No Good Deed Trailer Teaches Us To Never Let Idris Elba In

After playing hard-boiled cop John Luther on the absolutely brilliant BBC series Luther, Idris Elba is stepping on the other side of the law for his next movie role, in this fall’s thriller No Good Deed (not to be confused with the plainly awful 2003 Samuel L. Jackson/Milla Jovovich crime thriller of the same name). Elba stars as a dangerous killer who, after staging a jailbreak, invades the home of a young mother (Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson) and threatens both her and her children. The mother, a District Attorney, is forced to pick up arms to defend herself against the intimidating intruder.

We’ve got the first trailer for the film today, and though it looks quite predictable, Elba’s presence may be enough to get me into the theater. He rarely goes for psycho roles, opting instead to play charismatic heroes (in films like Pacific Rim and

Reese Witherspoon Drama ‘The Good Lie’ Shifts to October Release

The film, which centers on the bond between an American woman and a young refugee of the Sudanese Civil War, will premiere on Oct. 3, 2014.

It will open in limited release. “The Good Lie” was originally slated to debut on September 10, 2014, a date it had to itself. The Tom Hardy crime thriller “The Drop,” the thriller “No Good Deed” and the Tina Fey and Jason Bateman comedy “This is Where I Leave You” all open two days later.

'White Collar' fall finale, 'No Good Deed': Peter's moral compromise might be the last straw

"White Collar" ended its fall run Thursday (Dec. 19) with "No Good Deed," which saw Agent Burke recover one of the Welsh gold coins that Neal stole for Curtis Hagan. It set off an interesting chain reaction of events.

The gold coin came from Andrew Dawson, the U.S. Attorney who dropped the charges against Peter for killing Pratt. He was bribed with the Welsh gold and had to fence it through Decker, a flower shop owner who uses his shop as a front to run guns and other stolen goods.

The agents trace the coin back to Decker, who only just evades capture because Mozzie tips him off -- Decker can identify Neal as the gold thief.

But Burke is highly suspicious of Neal having been the thief (he has been since Neal was alone in the firehouse after the robbery) and pretends they got Decker, which forces a confession out of Neal.

'White Collar' fall finale: Rebecca wants to be part of Neal's criminal life

Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) always has one woman or another in his life and for "White Collar" Season 5, it's been Rebecca (Bridget Regan), the museum curator whose firing was Neal's fault. Now Rebecca and Neal are involved and she seems to be interested in more than just being his girlfriend who is kept in the dark.

In this exclusive clip of fall finale "No Good Deed," Rebecca tells Neal of the Mosconi Codex, "That book brought us together. Things are getting ... exciting. I want to be part of it. I want to be part of this part of your life."

She is referring to Neal and Mozzie's heist of the stained glass window Mosconi made. They don't yet know what answers it will yield about Chapter 13 of the Codex, but they know it's important.

"You're not a criminal, I don't want to turn you into one," says Neal. "I wanted

Grey's Anatomy Recap: Papa Was a Rolling Stone
For most of this week’s Grey’s Anatomy, Alex dodges Jo so completely and totally that she becomes all but convinced that he’s dumping her. (Seeing as she passes her intern exam without even a “Way to go!” from her boyfriend, I can’t say I blame her!) But by the end of the hour, she probably wishes he had just dumped her, because… well, keep reading. I’ll fill in the blanks.
