The movie avoided the 60-percent-plus drop of many of Summer 2014's blockbusters, which is a solid win considering the poor reviews and mixed word-of-mouth. Turtles has so far earned $117.6 million, and will pass G.I. Joe: Retaliation ($122.5 million) in the next few days.In its third weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy eased 41 percent to $24.7 million.

Have you ever wondered what Jet, Wolf, and the rest of ITV's Gladiators did after the show finished? Wonder no more...
ITV’s Gladiators - the show that for eight years made children everywhere become interested in sports, eating well and keeping fit... for about five minutes on a Saturday night, then we all went back to our natural state of sitting on the settee eating sugar straight from the packet.
What was it that inspired this minor surge of enthusiasm for being buff? That would be the gladiators themselves. Every week, twelve superhuman powerhouses - six men and six women - would intimidate, bully, and otherwise humiliate whichever puny contestants stepped up to try their luck, beating or hindering them in a series of physical skill games. This took place before the big finale – where the contenders would race each other up a downwards escalator, while the gladiators were »

Walt Disney Pictures has got a new musical on the horizon, but Into the Woods isn’t your average fairy tale offering from the Mouse House. This one is directed by Rob Marshall, the helmsman on the Oscar-winning film musical Chicago; here, he is once again bringing an acclaimed Broadway stage musical to cinematic life. A recently-unveiled image gallery for the movie highlighted the A-list cast members and their lovely costuming, but the new teaser instead shines the spotlight on the fantasy world that Marshall helped to create onscreen.
So far, Into the Woods looks pretty good, in terms of its aesthetics. Marshall previously directed Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides for Disney, but already his fairy tale musical seems to be an improvement in the visual department. On Stranger Tides tends to suffer from clunky lighting that calls attention to the ...

Disney's upcoming live-action musical film (featuring a ridiculous amount of awesome people), now has it's very first trailer, and you can come check it out and see for yourself if this is something you want to see when it releases.
I've never been a big fan of musicals, personally. Nothing about them have ever really appealed to me, but I can get behind just about any movie with a good story behind it. Let's hope that's the case with Into the Woods!
“Into the Woods” is a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)—all tied together by an »

Disney has released the first trailer for the fairy tale musical Into the Woods, directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago). James Corden and Emily Blunt star as a couple who encounter Brothers Grimm characters while on a quest to reverse a curse that keeps them from starting a family. This is very much a teaser trailer, which unfortunately means we don't get to hear any of the songs just yet; this trailer is very much focused on introducing the cast and the magical world. Marshall's first foray into tentpole moviemaking with Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was a bit of a misfire, but Into the Woods looks to combine the large-canvas sensibilities of that film with the theatrical quality of Chicago. He's assembled an incredibly talented cast to bring Into the Woods to fruition, so if he can deliver from a directorial standpoint (and if the songs turn out »

Meryl Streep stars as "The Witch", but this teaser is all about introducing the rest of the cast: Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Tracey Ullman, Christine Baranski, and Johnny Depp, who they tease but don't really show. They're building this up to be quite the spectacle come Christmas-time, but for now we get a quick tease (without any singing featured as of yet) of the world and characters we'll be spending time with. How does it look? Watch the first teaser trailer for Rob Marshall's Into the Woods, in high def from Apple: Into the Woods is directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago, »

This time there's photos of Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Chris Pine as her prince, Johnny Depp as the the Wolf, James Corden as the baker, Emily Blunt as the baker's wife, and many more.

Every year, HBO’s high fantasy series Game of Thrones adds a bevy of new characters, and the show’s upcoming fifth season will be no different. At Comic-Con yesterday, the premium cable network announced the casting of actors in nine key roles. The list includes a recasting of Myrcella Baratheon (Cersei’s daughter, last seen being carted off to Dorne for her own protection way back in season 2) and the addition of the High Sparrow, an important character who becomes a big part of King’s Landing next season. Other roles include multiple inhabitants of the kingdom of Dorne, homeland of the ill-fated Oberyn Martell.
The full list of new characters, and the actors portraying them, is as follows:

Westeros gets more crowded every year.
HBO’s Game of Thrones announced several additions to its already large cast at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, including Jonathan Pryce (the Pirates of the Caribbean films) and Alexander Siddig (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine).

Siddig, more recently seen in Da Vinci’s Demons, will play Doran Martell, the even-tempered ruling lord of Dorne and older brother to the late (sniff) Oberyn Martell.
Pryce’s role is the High Sparrow, a religious leader followed by large numbers of the poor and sick. He »
There are cheap costumes, cartoonish special effects and endless nonsense monologues in Brett Ratner's “Hercules." Ergo, there's also Ian McShane. HBO's "Deadwood" blew up the journeyman actor's career, making him a must-have accessory in the eyes of all casting agents. But since the end of that show, where he essayed the role of the iconic Al Swearengen, he's been lost in an increasingly inessential sea of special effects-heavy blockbusters, from “Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” to “Jack The Giant Slayer," from “The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising” to “Snow White And The Huntsman." You figure the qualifications for McShane appearing in your movie involve the least amount of acting possible. “Hercules” may be the first film where, finally, everyone is on the exact same page as McShane. Of course, if you don't know McShane, don't worry: he's in the bulk of scenes in “Hercules," and yet you »

But when the benevolent ruler of Thrace and his daughter seek Hercules’ help to defeat a savage and terrifying warlord, Hercules finds that in order for good to triumph and justice to prevail… he must again become the hero he once was… he must embrace his own myth… he must be Hercules.

Shiver me timbers and blow the man down (other hoary old pirate expressions are available, speak to your local quartermaster for details) – Jack Sparrow is back. Three years after Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides sailed into cinemas, its hull pockmarked by critical broadsides, Disney have officially announced the fifth instalment in the long-running nautical franchise, and it turns out you'll have to wait three more years for it. Plus! Its subtitle is Dead Men Tell No Tales, and uber-producer Jerry Bruckheimer has recruited some new blood to helm the series' quinquel.After Gore Verbinski and Rob Marshall, this time the director’s chair will have to be widened a bit to accommodate two microphone wielders: Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg. The duo are probably best known for the Scandi-sailing adventure Kon-Tiki, where they proved their saltwater credentials with aplomb.Given that On Stranger Tides eventually grossed over $1 billion »
Disney has refused to get their ducks in order with regards to Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. The last film in the series, the not-well-regarded Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides nonetheless made literally a billion dollars more than your favorite indie movie this year, but aside from hiring new directors and keeping up appearances with Jerry Bruckheimer, this franchise has stayed dormant. Until now... set sail for 2017, scalywags. Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales has a release date of July 8th, 2017, says the Twitters! Yo ho, yo ho...box office plundering we shall go! Disney's Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 will set sail July 7, 2017.. Exhibitor Relations (@ERCboxoffice) July 23, 2014 That's three years away, if you're keeping score at home. Plenty of time for Johnny Depp to start grooming his impeccable Jack Sparrow beard. Weirdly enough, Pirates is in sole possession of that »
We all knew that Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was bad, but none of us imagined that the film’s lack of quality would delay the bankable Disney franchise this much – especially because On Stranger Tides grossed $1.04 billion, the second-highest for the series and the 13th highest-grossing of all time worldwide. To take its grosses another way though, On Stranger Tides was also the lowest-grossing domestically, so perhaps Disney’s alarm bells were somewhat warranted. Regardless, it’s been announced today that Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will finally be hitting screens on July 7th, 2017, a whopping six years after the last installment.
Originally, the movie was set to arrive next summer, but it was delayed in order to work on the script. Kon-Tiki breakouts Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg are still set to direct the tentpole, giving us at least one reason to be excited for the fivequel. »

Question: Is "Pirates of the Caribbean 5" aka "Dead Men Tell No Tales" shooting in early 2015 per recent rumors: Answer: Hell, no. Disney announced today that 'Pirates 5' will land in theaters on July 7th, 2017. What does this mean? Well, it’s yet another delay. And considering the film was aiming for a summer 2015 release and then delayed again just last year, the filmmakers and producers are not close to shooting and probably still tinkering with the screenplay (and at this point considering how many writers have worked on that project, possibly starting from scratch). The film will land in theaters six years after “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” which was the lowest grossing film in the franchise domestically, but the second highest grossing film in the series worldwide (and cracking the coveted $1 billion mark for the second time). Again, North American audiences may be tiring of the 4th »
