Picking on the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot is just an easy target, no matter how good the film is/was. Paramount, however, isn't too concerned with any of the jabs the ScreenJunkies crew throws its way in this new honest trailer as they sent out a press release yesterday announcing among all films theatrically released in 2014 that earned more than $100 million at the box office, the new DVD and Blu-ray release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has the highest ratio of disc sales to theatrical ticket sales for its first week of release. Now that's a rather specific group of films, but it does include the likes of Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Transformers: Age of Extinction and so on. I think Christmas for the kiddies has a little something to do with that, but doesn't that speak to whom this film is forc So, »

With the holiday season soft, it’s clear the 2014 domestic box office is going to wind up down from last year by nearly 5 percent. So why aren’t we hearing more groans and gnashing of teeth from Hollywood executives?
It’s because despite the downturn, the majority of the studios made money on their movies. Fox, Disney, Paramount, Universal, Warner Bros. and Sony should all — to varying degrees — wind up in the black on their film slates.
The fact that 2015 has a shot to be the biggest on record is brightening Hollywood’s mood, too. Among the heavyweight films set »

X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn was originally set to return to direct X-Men: Days of Future Past but eventually bowed out in favour of directing another project of his, Kingsman: The Secret Service. Vaughn had written the original screenplay alongside Simon Kinberg, but it was unclear how much of his story made it onto the big screen when Bryan Singer replaced him as director. Now, in an interview with Collider, Vaughn has spoken about the movie, and how much of his original vision was retained by Singer in the final film:
“I’d say 90%. I mean, we worked on the script [Simon] Kinsberg and I. It was a really tough decision for me, because I pulled out just because I’d finished the Kingsman: The Secret Service script at the same time and I was like ‘My god if I don’t make a fun spy movie right now, somebody »

2014 was packed full of amazing movies! I'm so happy with what I got to see this year, and while coming up with a Top 10 list of my favorite films of the year, it easily turned into a Top 15. There were some movies that I just couldn't leave off the list. There's an interesting mix here that consists of big blockbusters, and smaller independent films. In the end, all of these films connected with me on a personal level and punched me in the face with all kinds of different emotions that have stuck with me. So without further ado, here are my 15 favorite movies of 2014. After you look over it let me know what your favorite movies of the year were!
15. Edge of Tomorrow
This sci-fi film was one of the most underrated movies of the year. Whether or not you like Tom Cruise, he was awesome in this movie »

I'm curious what the consensus will be in ten to twenty years, once we look back and evaluate the movies of 2014. It seems I continually see people referring to it as either a great year or a terrible year with little in-between. Were you to judge the year on the quality of the mainstream studio features I could see where you might be disappointed. It wasn't exactly the best year for blockbuster cinema. Hell, Christopher Nolan even came out with a new big budget film and it didn't even make it onto my list of Honorable Mentions. However, you look at the mini majors and smaller distributros, studios such as A24, Fox Searchlight, Sony Classics and Open Road and things begin to perk up, but these studios don't market their films on every channel so at the end of the year when people are asking me "what movies they should »

Transformers: Age of Extinction is the biggest box office hit of 2014.
Michael Bay's fourth instalment in the robot action saga earned more than $1 billion from cinemas worldwide this year, easily securing it the top spot ahead of Marvel blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy.
Age of Extinction's earnings of $245,439,076 in the Us makes it the least successful domestic performer in the franchise, however it's huge foreign gross of $841,965,423 helped power it to the top of the charts.
Filming in Hong Kong, the movie was one of the few Hollywood blockbusters to benefit from a release in the fast-expanding Chinese market. It's $300 million gross made it the highest-earning film in the country's history, overtaking 2009's Avatar.
Despite its success in 2014, Age of Extinction is still only the second-biggest earner in the Transformers series behind Dark of the Moon, which earned $1,123,794,079 worldwide in 2011.
Elsewhere in 2014, Marvel registered two films in the top »
It.s been a thrill watching Marvel push the boundaries of what exactly constitutes a comic book movie. Guardians of the Galaxy was described as a space opera, Captain America 2 a political thriller and the forthcoming Ant-Man a heist pic. But there.s one thing Marvel won.t do to make themselves edgier and that.s decapitate one of its characters in front of entire audiences. One Marvel mainstay in Guardians was originally supposed to meet this fate, but that.s when James Gunn and his team realized that just might not be the right move. It.s certainly not the Disney way. The character in question is Mr. Stan "The Man" Lee, who made a cameo appearance. We see him in Guardians of the Galaxy as an interstellar Hugh Hefner, mackin. on all the lovely space ladies when Bradley Cooper.s Rocket Raccoon gets him in his sights. »
Chicago – It’s that time of year to figure it out, as 2014 leaks away, and the film year follows suit. Whittling down a list to ten films, after hours of entertainment and provoking of thought, is a fool’s challenge at best. Then who better to do it than Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com.
Best to change it up to first person voice, since I’m writing the actual article. So, I, Patrick McDonald, will attempt to break down the film year into the 10 Best, and my colleagues on HollywoodChicago.com will follow suit in the next several days.
The most difficult slot of any list like this is the 10th position, for it leaves out so many brilliant possibilities for 11th place and onward. At that position are the international films “Bright Days Ahead,” “Force Majeure” and “The Raid 2”; the horror/comic genius of “Dead Snow 2: Red vs. »

The massive cinematic universes of Marvel and DC will likely never converge on the big screen, since both are housed at different studios. Marvel and Disney control several of their own comic book properties, along with Sony and 20th Century Fox), while Warner Bros. is adapting the DC comic books for the big screen. Though, it's always fun to speculate would might happen if some sort of blockbuster deal were worked out. A new fan-made trailer gives us an explosive look at the action that might ensue should these two worlds collide! Alex Luthor made this non-profit video "purely for fun," which features over three and a half minutes filled with spliced together footage from several superhero adventures on both sides of the comic book spectrum.
With the passing of every year comes the arrival and departure of an unfathomable number of films from theatres around the globe where they earned either a lot of or precious little screen time, depending on the circumstances. Notwithstanding smaller budgeted, independent-minded motion pictures that find unexpectedly impressive legs to remain in theatrical exhibition for longer than most would have foreseen (surely including the exhibitors themselves in many cases), it is safe to argue that for the most part, the movies that are awarded the most screenings rooms and screening times are the big budget blockbusters.
There exists a myriad of reasons why it often feels so terribly easy to aim criticisms at these so-called motion picture events. Some of them are related to the perceived quality, others have to do what certain cinephiles with attuned tastes expect from their movie going experiences as patrons. Movies for which so much »

With Christmas closing in and the end of the year on the horizon, it’s that time again when Hollywood shuts down for a couple of weeks and movie executives everywhere take stock of the last twelve months.
Marvel once again finds itself firmly ensconced in the winner’s circle, enjoying huge success and acclaim via Guardians Of The Galaxy and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, while Maleficent and Big Hero 6 also helped fill parent company Disney’s coffers. The Lego Movie and Godzilla were big hits for Warner Bros., but Transcendence was a messy mishap and Edge Of Tomorrow deserved better publicity and a bigger audience. 20th Century Fox hit sequel pay dirt with the release of X-Men: Days Of Future Past and Dawn Of The Planet of the Apes. And Sony/Columbia… never mind.
As has become increasingly customary, franchise fare dominated the global box »

As we count down our best of 2014 movies list, there's room for a sci-fi spectacular from the man behind the Dark Knight Trilogy, a surprise blockbuster from February and a Marvel sequel that took its star-spangled hero into the dangerous world of espionage.
Digital Spy goes from 15-11 with the five films below...

We said: "Interstellar is a spine-tingling blend of brains and heart, a high concept sci-fi opera that's as unafraid of cerebral ideas as it is of heart-on-sleeve emotion, even if its ambitious reach occasionally exceeds its narrative grasp. It's the first film of Nolan's that could justifiably be called sentimental, but it earns every moment of unrestrained emotion with another of quiet fortitude." [Ed]
14. The Lego Movie

Over the past few weeks, Den of Geek writers have been voting for their favourite films of the year. In 8th place is Spike Jonze's story of a man falling in love with a computer. Here's why...
When I received an email from the Den of Geek editorial team asking me to contribute to the ‘film of the year’ write ups, I thought back briefly over the top films list I’d submitted. With the exception of Her, they were big blustery action films. Without even reading the contents of the email, I went and got my onomatopoeic dictionary. I was clearly going to be writing about some kersmashes and kabooms. Spike Jonze’s film Her isn’t a very explodey film, and when I realised it was the film I’d be covering, »
The fellow editors & I over here at ComicBookMovie.com (along with Cbm boss Nate Best) have put our heads together to create a "Top Ten" list of Christmas gifts, not necessarily in that order, to share with the community. Take note significant others, family and friends - These are gifts that We would like to find under the tree this year! Hydra have really made an impact in the Marvel Cinematic, and TV universes over the last year or so. Not only were they revealed to be the big bads behind the criminal shenanigans in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but they were responsible for some of the best moments in the second season of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. too. They also just happen to have a damn cool logo, and our friends over at SuperheroStuff.com have featured it on the awesome black and white tee below. They have plenty »

Well, here we are, the final Week in Spandex before Christmas (Happy Holidays to all, by the way!), and despite taking a sinister turn with terror threats against moviegoers, the hack into Sony has delivered an early Christmas present to Marvel fans by giving us hope that Spider-Man may one day line up alongside Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and company as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is currently on hiatus for the next few months, with the new series Marvel's Agent Carter taking over its Tuesday, 9 Pm time slot starting January 6 for an eight-episode run. During Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s two seasons, there have been several connections between the show and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including tie-ins to Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, along with characters who have crossed over from the movies to TV, such as Coulson (Clark Gregg), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), Jasper Sitwell (Maximiliano Hernández) and Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander). Earlier this week, Clark Gregg posted an intriguing comic book photo on his Facebook page, which may tease that Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye is set to make an appearance on the ABC series.
The image is taken from the Secret Avengers #10 comic, which was released in November, »
Hello, everybody, and welcome to the Second Annual staypuffed Awards! I had a lot of fun putting these together last year, so I thought I'd expand on it more in 2014. All of these are based on my opinion, so I'd love for you guys to share your thoughts. Now, before we officially get started, I’d like to list some honourable mentions of movies and comics I really enjoyed that either didn’t fit my categories or simply didn’t make the cut. Honourable mentions. The Lego Movie I can’t remember the last time I had so much fun in a cinema. Consistently charming, imaginative and hilarious, it’s a laugh-a-minute crowd-pleaser with amazing animation. Captain America: The Winter Soldier The Russo brothers brought the Super Soldier right into the modern world, marking the most engaging and visceral entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet. Death of Wolverine Easily »
During a profile over at Entertainment Weekly, Captain America: The Winter Soldier star Frank Grillo has been speaking about his role as the villain Brock Rumlow, a.k.a. Crossbones, stating that the Hydra sleeper agent could take on any superhero, including the Green Goliath!
“He is not good and not bad, Crossbones,” says Grillo, who is expected to return for Captain America: Civil War. “He’s just a guy who’s defending his ideology, and he’s a badass. He has no super powers. He’s a mercenary. Here’s the deal about Crossbones. The Hulk is just a big thug who comes at you. He comes out swinging. Crossbones is much smarter than that. Plus, he’s got weapons. The Hulk has no weapons. He’s an idiot. And he’s green. Crossbones doesn’t lose to people who are green. I’ll fight any of those guys. »
