Even though Avengers: Age of Ultron is yet to be released, or even have its first trailer, many Marvel fans are speculating into what may be included in Avengers 3. Without a doubt Marvel is currently on a roll with their movies. They are both loved by fans and critics alike and making a splash at the box office. The trend with some successful movies at the moments in to split them into two. This allows the studio to make more money, which many people will call selling out but sometimes it can be justified. Sometimes a film can’t be long enough to explore everything the filmmakers want to explore so splitting the film in two helps.
Many people will go on to say that they disagree with Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows being split in two, »

A new rumor claims that The Avengers 3 is going to do what quite a few franchise sequels have pulled in the recent past. It will be split into a two-part movie.
This is a trend that started with the Twilight Saga, as the final book in the series was split into The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2. Harry Potter followed suit with The Deathly Hallows, and it has continued through such franchises as The Hobbit, originally planned as a two film prequel but turned into a three part epic, and Divergent. Anything to squeeze a little extra money out of a franchise.
Splitting The Avengers 3 into two parts is an interesting conceit, since its not based on a novel series, though it could be based on an expansive, existing storyline in the comics. And a good cliffhanger never hurt ticket sales. »

From rock operas to Wes Craven to Dazzler, here's some Marvel movies that never quite made it...
Recently, we looked at the DC movies that never got the greenlight. We saw hordes of Superman movies which didn’t make it to screen, along with Batman film ideas and whole hosts of other DC heroes whose movies plummeted out of production (You can read that piece here).
On the other side of the superhero cinema fence, we have the seemingly all-encompassing, game-changing Marvel Cinematic Universe at the height of its powers, the X-Men franchise in rude health and the still-fresh memory of Spider-Man’s hasty reboot. You could be forgiven for thinking that not as many Marvel movies have struggled to get made as their DC counterparts.
However, having delved once more into the ancient scrolls of cinema history (still better known as extensive Googling), we can confirm there’s plenty »

Why is it that the idea of a child seeing an adult rated movie is bad, but games are not seen as a problem?
The games industry often suffers attacks from the media, taking the blame for various horrible incidents that happen out in the world. As soon as a youth perpetrates some kind of heinous act, it seems that there's no shortage of blame to be slapped onto videogames. GTA, Call of Duty, Street Fighter, Mass Effect and many others have been blamed for everything from murders and drunk driving, to bullying and even rickets (yes, really). Even the harmless sandboxer, Minecraft, has been a scapegoat for school-related violence.
Games are an easy target for this kind of social blame, and they're just the latest in a long line of hobbies, interests and media to take the flak. Movies, music, comics, books, they've all had their fair share of whipping boy duty, »

After the curious case of Edge Of Tomorrow’s surprise critical popularity, Rob investigates a strange Hollywood happening…
The release of Edge Of Tomorrow - which opened in the Us this past weekend, following its bow in the UK a week earlier - has brought, not for the first time, a strange Hollywood trend to light. And it's this: do we trust big stars to make decent movies anymore?
Many people, this writer included, took a lot of convincing to venture out and see Tom Cruise in a hugely expensive sci-fi spectacular (notwithstanding the fact that Cruise has fine form in science fiction). The film in question, Edge Of Tomorrow, is directed by Doug Liman of The Bourne Identity, and based on a graphic novel with a cool title. So surely this should have been a movie which audiences were enthusiastically anticipating? Yet It didn’t seem that way, »
In July 2010, Warner Bros. dropped "Inception." The following year, the blockbuster choice was "Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows: Part 2," and in 2012, it was "The Dark Knight Rises." Last year, the July anchor fell to "Pacific Rim" with "Man Of Steel" in June. And so in 2014, it seemed the studio was feeling pretty confident when they slated the Wachowskis' "Jupiter Ascending" to that primo July slot, but it looks like they've had a change of heart. The studio has now moved the film from July 18th all the way to the rather unglamorous slot of February 6, 2015. While not quite a dumping ground, it's definitely not a vote that the studio believes in this one. (This year, it was the expensive flop "A Winter's Tale" that got a similar date.) It's a pretty bold move, especially considering the film is about six weeks from release, leaving a pretty gaping hole in the schedule. »

From the beginning, with his break out role as the quirky best friend to Hugh Grant's character in Notting Hill, Rhys Ifans has made a career out of being mad as a hatter. With more recent films like Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part I and The Amazing Spider-Man, Ifans has used that madness to his advantage in key roles for each respective franchise. As Xenophilius Lovegood and Dr. Curt Connors, the actor injected a sort of required paternal wisdom into a character that's generally unstable and morally neutral. If there were ever a role that would seem like the culmination of all of this work and skill, it would surely be that of the father to The Mad Hatter of Alice In Wonderland. It's just a shame that it's in Through The Looking Glass, the sequel to Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland. The Wrap exclusively reported »

It may have been released back in November 2013 in the Us, but Frozen continues to be raking in cash at the worldwide box office. It was only released in big Asian markets such as China and Japan in February and March 2014 respectively, and so the total gross continues to inflate. In fact, Disney’s return to form has just pushed Iron Man 3 out of the top 5 grossing films in the world ever!!! As of writing, Frozen has made $1.219 billion, putting it above Iron Man 3′s $1.215 billion.
It’s looking doubtful that Frozen will catch up with fourth place, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows – Part 2, which has a gross of $1.341 billion, but as it can easily claim its ‘Highest Grossing Animated Film Of All Time’ position, I doubt it’s too upset. Unless of course you count the number one grossing film, Avatar.

Emma Watson graduated Sunday, and not from Hogwart's. The 24-year-old British actress who came to fame as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movies, was at Brown University in Providence, R.I., on Sunday to receive her degree in English literature from the Ivy League school. It took Watson five years to achieve her diploma, not bad considering she took time out in 2011 to promote “The Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” the last Harry Potter movie.
