What a summer at the movies! The galaxy got guarded. The future days went past, like some sort of extinct age. The planet of the apes stopped rising and started dawning. Our stars had a fault. And also: Lucy!
Hollywood had a rough season at the box office in summer 2014, with overall box-office receipts falling precipitously from last year’s flurry of mega-grossers. Going into this weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy, the highest-grossing film at the summer box-office, has earned about $256 million–which would have made it the fifth highest-grossing movie of summer 2013.
Word on the street says that 2014 was »

Honorary Oscars 2014: Hayao Miyazaki, Jean-Claude Carrière, and Maureen O’Hara; Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award goes to Harry Belafonte One good thing about the creation of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards — an expedient way to remove the time-consuming presentation of the (nearly) annual Honorary Oscar from the TV ratings-obsessed, increasingly youth-oriented Oscar show — is that each year up to four individuals can be named Honorary Oscar recipients, thus giving a better chance for the Academy to honor film industry veterans while they’re still on Planet Earth. (See at the bottom of this post a partial list of those who have gone to the Great Beyond, without having ever received a single Oscar statuette.) In 2014, the Academy’s Board of Governors has selected a formidable trio of honorees: Japanese artist and filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, 73; French screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière, 82; and Irish-born Hollywood actress Maureen O’Hara, »

Most people know that Transformers: Age of Extinction is the current box office champ of 2014, but do you know which film is second? It's Disney's Maleficent! Yup. This plucky film has grossed more at the worldwide box office than 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past, Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Yet, I don't hear many people talking about that very fact. Seems like kind of a big deal. Guess that is a another feather in the cap for female-driven films. Concept Art by Kimberley Pope Click Here- More Maleficent Concept Art “Maleficent” is the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when »

Pitt and Jolie wed in a private ceremony attended by the couple's family and close friends, reported USA Today. Each of the couple’s six children participated in the ceremony.

"True Blood" is over, but we'll be getting a dose of Pam's biting sass thanks to "Once Upon a Time," the ABC show about a small town full of characters from fairy tales.
Kristin Bauer van Straten is returning to the show to reprise her role as Maleficent, the purple-clad baddie who was supposedly offed at the end of the first season. Guess Maleficent didn't meet the True Death, eh? Van Straten's character will reportedly have a major arc, so we're hoping to see lots more fabulous villainy, and perhaps even more about Maleficent's life before she broke bad.
This isn't the first time that "Once" has gotten all Disneyfied on us. There's also going to be a "Frozen" arc in the ABC show, with Elizabeth Lail as Anna and Georgina Haig as icy Queen Elsa. The real question is whether this Maleficent will have more in common with »

Films with great women’s roles aren’t always great films. Films with poor female representation aren’t necessarily bad films. But poorly written female roles will always be a problem for cinema so long as they continue to persist. The damsel in distress. Angel-whore. The token girl. Trophy wives. Mother, daughter, sister. The unconditional love interest. These are among the popular clichés most frequently applied to female characters as they’re written on the page. Some films are so desperate for conflict that they just keep going to the well without altering the mold. Have women not earned the right by now to play more villains, complicated lovers, a-holes, The Best Friends, soldiers, comic reliefs or leads? Can a woman be sexy in a film and still have a great role? Yes. Give her agency. Can a woman support other characters but still have a great role? Yes. Keep her vital. »

After a few weeks of on-again off-again negotiations, District 9 star Sharlto Copley and Battlestar Galactica alum Michelle Forbes have joined the 10-episode superhero crime drama.
Copley, who’s been making a name for himself in high-profile projects like Elysium, Maleficent, and The A-Team, will make his small screen debut as Christian Walker, who is described as a “dapper and charismatic faded hero who lost his powers in a battle with a super-human mass killer.” Now a detective who works with law enforcement, he uses his unique experience to investigate crimes in the Powers community with his partner, Detective Deena Pilgrim (Susan Heyward).

Sharlto Copley is putting in some TV work. Or, well, online TV work, which is basically the same thing these days, right? The star of “The A-Team,” “Elysium,” and most recently, “Maleficent” has signed on to headline the Playstation Network’s reboot of the FX show “Powers,” based on the comic book of the same name by Brian Michael Bendis. He’ll be taking over the role originally played by Jason Patric in the pilot episode, before FX decided they’d rather not do the show, or air the pilot at all. Copley will star as Christian Walker… …a cop with darkness and violence at his surface but with a sense of buried integrity. The character jumps first and thinks later. Dapper and charismatic, he has the dissolute air of a faded rock star and the body of a battered heavyweight. Once possessed of super-powers, Walker lost his powers in »
