    Official Teaser Trailer For "The Dark Knight Rises" Surfaces

    A bootleg version has been floating around the web since last week, but we didn't post it, given the severe punishment Warner Bros promised to dish out to those who did. Though if you saw the final chapter of the Harry Potter franchise this past weekend, you would have seen it anyway, as it was one ...

    Guest Post: Why we Need More “Warrior Princesses” Like Hermione Granger by Natalie Wilson

    Don’t hate me Potterites, but I would have preferred the Harry Potter series had been instead the Hermione Granger series. Yes, I know J.K. Rowling says Harry popped into her head as wizarding protagonist and that she didn’t set out to create a male lead. I also realize the saga is brimming with str...

    Watch: The Post-Credits Surprise From 'Captain America' Leaks Early

    What started as a gag by director Jon Favreau on the first "Iron Man" film has become a signature part of all Marvel Studios films: the post-credits scene. During the filming of "Iron Man," Favreau threw in a few Easter eggs to the larger Marvel universe including a short scene after the end credits rolled featuring Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, who shows up to tell Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark that he's putting a team together. This was an exciting tease to fanboys which should have led right into "The Avengers," Marvel's long-planned superhero team-up. Unfortunately this made "Iron Man 2" almost completely redundant, but that film's pos...

    Kurt Johnstad Reportedly Doing Rewrites On Zack Snyder's 'Man Of Steel'

    Jonah Nolan Also Said To Have Taken A Pass At David Goyer's ScriptWarner Bros. -- for legal reasons that are both too byzantine and boring to recount here -- are on a ticking clock regarding "Man Of Steel," as the rights on Superman will expire after next year and revert back to the heirs of the comic creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster making it far more complicated (and expensive) down the road to get a Superman movie made. Among the potential scenarios is that the rights to the iconic costume and the rights to Superman's ability to fly will possibly be split between creators and DC Comics creating a ridiculous scenario in which several p...

    Short Starts: "The Ballad of Nessie" and Disney's Nostalgia Problem

    I had no idea that there was a new animated short attached to “Winnie the Pooh” before I walked into the theater, and I assume most of America didn’t know either. Imagine my delighted surprise when “The Ballad of Nessie” unfolded before me on the screen. Theatrical shorts are few and far between these days, with only Pixar consistently interested in producing this neglected cinematic form. Disney used to dominate the world of animated shorts but hasn’t produced them with any degree of regularity in decades. It’s a special treat to see a new one, especially attached to a film featuring Winnie the Pooh, a bear whose first appearance on screen w...

    Final Thoughts on the Women's World Cup

    If that game wasn't entertainment then nothing is. A nail biter and while I love the US women, the Japanese played yesterday like the US had been playing all tournament. Scrappy and coming from behind and poaching on mistakes and just digging deeper. The shorter women out muscled the taller US te...
