Avengers: Infinity War Nominated For 7 Teen Choice Awards

A few days ago, we were finally able to add Avengers: Infinity War to the prestigious list of movies to gross $2 billion worldwide – not that that came as much of a surprise, mind you.

In doing so, it became only the fourth feature film ever to surpass the $2 billion milestone, an honor it now shares with The Force Awakens, Titanic and the one true box office king, James Cameron’s Avatar, which is still somehow – almost inexplicably – in a league of its own at $2.78 billion. But the good news doesn’t end there.

Giving Kevin Feige and co. even more to smile about, the Teen Choice Awards released their nominations the other day and Infinity War managed to score a whopping 7, including Choice Action Movie, Choice Action Movie Actor and more. Not only that, but Marvel also saw Black Panther and Thor: Ragnarok earn a few nods, too, with the

Here Are All the Big Movie Franchises ATandT Will Get from Time Warner

It's official: U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon has ruled that At&T's merger of Time Warner is approved. There are no conditions of the deal, meaning that the $85.4 billion merger is moving forward, despite protests from the government and a lawsuit from the Justice Department attempting to block the merger. That means that all of the franchises owned by Warner Bros., which is part of Time Warner, now have a new home. So what franchises did At&T just get for their money? We're here to break it down for you.

DC

Warner Bros. owns (or owned) all of DC Entertainment. That means At&T is ultimately in control of the future of the franchise. The DC universe, on the big screen, has been something of a mess and the disappointment of Justice League has resulted in major changes behind the scenes. This merger will no doubt further shake-up the Dceu.

R-Rated God of War Movie May Happen with Dave Bautista If Director Has His Way

R-Rated God of War Movie May Happen with Dave Bautista If Director Has His Way
Pacific Rim: Uprising director Steven S. DeKnight wants to make an R-rated God of War movie and he's actually met with Sony about it. DeKnight cautions that they were early conversations but that doesn't change the fact that this sounds like it could be potentially awesome. Especially when taking into account that he wants to see Dave Bautista in the lead role.

Steven S. DeKnight is currently promoting the home video release of Pacific Rim: Uprising. That's important to consider as the movie didn't meet expectations at the box office. So Sony may be a little hesitant to hand him the reigns to another big franchise right now. That said, DeKnight discussed his love for God of War and why he wants Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista as Kratos in a recent interview. Here's what he had to say about it.

"I've always been a fan of God of War.
