    Discuss: After 'The Hunger Games' & 'The Dark Knight Rises,' Does Less Mean More When It Comes To Movie Marketing?

    The creator of "Lost" might have a horse in this fight (he's the co-writer of Ridley Scott's "Prometheus"), but he also has a point. In the last few months, marketing of major blockbusters seems to fall into two separate categories: keeping your cards close to the chest (the J.J. Abrams mystery box ...

    'Fringe' Finale Has Two Potential Endings to Accomodate Show's Uncertain Future

    It's makes thematically sound sense that the "Fringe" finale, which will air on May 11th, has been shot to accomodate two potential endings -- this is a show, after all, that straddles a pair of divergent universes. But it's also a move that's all about the business of televisi...

    Get ready for the geek crowd to whip out their knives. J.J. Abrams has been consistently inconsistent about his stance on 3D, starting off the year by saying he was pretty cool on the format, to announcing the highly anticipated "Star Trek 2: It's Not About Khan, No Really, It Isn't&quo...

    Judging by the box office numbers, chances are if you lived somewhere with an IMAX theater, you saw "Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol," the fourth and arguably the best (at least since Brian De Palma's) film in the long-running, Tom Cruise-led franchise.

    Khan Or No Khan, Benicio Del Toro Won't Be In 'Star Trek' Sequel

    Benicio Del Toro's always seemed a little uneasy with the idea of stardom. He's been working in the big leagues, on-and-off, since "Licence To Kill" in 1989, and took a big leap up with his near-incomprehensible performance in "The Usual Suspects," but every time he steps towards the A-list, he seem...
