    'X-Men: First Class' Is Basically 'Mad Men' With Mutants, Gets Retro Cool Magazine Covers

    Ordinarily, doing a post about magazine covers isn't exactly our thing, but when they're this cool they're pretty hard to ignore.

    Ms. Bossypants Writes a Book

    Tina Fey's new book Bossypants comes out this week and it's generally well liked with a couple of caveats. The consensus is that it isn't exactly a memoir but that's ok since it is still a good read and quite funny.

    Brief New Footage Of 'Super 8' In Latest TV Spot

    While this summer is going to be filled with comic movies and action franchises, nothing is giving us goosebumps of anticipation more than J.J. Abrams' "Super 8." The Amblin-inspired tale is having its details kept under lock and key but with a cast of mostly lesser-known thesps -- Elle Fanning is the biggest name among them -- the '70s Ohio-set film will center on the strange events that occur following a train crash with a pack of kids who investigate and find out more. At least that's what we can surmise from what we know so far. Paramount has been showing off chunks of footage to movie bloggers and industry folks in recent weeks to huge b...

    Review: Even James Franco and Natalie Portman Can't Save One-Joke "Your Highness"

    There’s something wonderful and goofy about a film that has James Franco in a long wig and a codpiece sending up legendary heroes, as the Medieval Prince Fabious, and Natalie Portman as a slender, vengeful warrior with the toughness of an Amazon. But that wit doesn't go far in Your Highness, a spora...

    'Hanna' Director Joe Wright Calls "Bullshit" On 'Sucker Punch's Faux Feminism

    One of the many things that we took particular umbrage with in reviewing Zack Snyder’s unerringly nasty, totally boring “Sucker Punch,” was its horrible gender politics. Keep in mind that this is a movie in which a bunch of young girls, to escape the psychic and physical pain of getting regularly ra...

    Henry Cavill Calls 'Superman' A "Mega Opportunity"; 'Immortals' Producer Happy For Extra Attention

    Henry Cavill is going to be facing the media gauntlet in the run-up to "Superman" and it will be unlike anything the actor has experienced before. With the production likely to be kept tightly under wraps -- with Christopher Nolan producing, the film will probably face the same levels of secrecy as his own movies -- Cavill will quickly have to learn the game of answering questions but not giving away the surprises that Zack Snyder has in store. And from his first press rounds for "Immortals" at WonderCon, the actor seems to be a quick study. We caught up with the actor -- along with the rest of cast -- who were meeting with press for Tarsem's...

    Weekend Box Office: Kids Come Out For 'Hop,' 'Sucker' Thoroughly 'Punch'ed

    While Universal’s animated division remains behind Disney and Dreamworks, “Hop” became their second straight surprisingly big opening this weekend, collecting $39 million. Most called the heavily-promoted film in the high 20’s, low 30’s, but like “Despicable Me” before it, the film definitely connected with family audiences in its first frame. While “Despicable Me” eventually collected $544 million globally with a much bigger opening, “Hop” isn’t expected to bust the doors down. But due to the seasonal and family appeal, expect this thing to have legs, and while they initially weren’t counting on $100 domestic, that should be easily surmounta...
