Though its missed the mark a couple of times (2 Fast, 2 Furious and Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift), the Fast and Furious series has been a guilty pleasure for adrenaline junkies for many years.  With the nice cars, aesthetically pleasing cast and fast paced action, here are five reasons (in no particular order) why […]

Latest trailer: ‘X-Men: First Class’

20th Century Fox has released a brand new, more in-depth trailer for X-Men:First Class and its somehow even more bad ass than the previous trailer released a few months ago.

Weekend Box Office: April 22-24, 2011

PHOTO: Meryl Streep and Jim Broadbent in ‘The Iron Lady’

It’s always nice to have some news on the beloved Meryl Streep and quite frankly I can’t think of a better way to start a Good Friday morning than with another photo of her as Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady.

Bradley Cooper in talks to star in ‘The Crow’ remake

Some things are just untouchable, The Crow being one of those things, but that hasn’t stopped Hollywood from toying with the idea of casting Bradley Cooper as Eric Draven in this highly unnecessary remake.

Evening Links: 4/11/2011

Over the weekend… Roger Ebert beautifully remembers the legendary Sidney Lumet (1924-2011) [source] Michael Shannon makes me rethink my stance on Zack Snyder’s Superman: Man of Steel [source] Is this the big break that Jessica Biel has been waiting for?

Weekend Box Office: April 8-10, 2011

Good Monday evening, movie lovers!   The box office has been quite lackluster in 2011, and there’s no greater indication of this than two Russell Brand films opening in the top three  this weekend.  Hop and Arthur, the former featuring Brand’s voice, finished the weekend in the number one and three spots, respectively, while Hanna clocked  […]
