    First Reactions To 'X-Men: First Class' Suggest It's The Summer Home-Run We've Been Waiting For

    Since the start of the year, we haven't been shy about our opinion that "X-Men: First Class" seemed to be the most promising of the four superhero entries landing this summer. The cast is great, Matthew Vaughn looks ready to step up a level, and the trailers have been among the best-cut of the year....

    Weekend Box Office: 'Pirates 4' Scores Biggest Global Debut Of All-Time Despite Being A Shitty Movie

    This weekend, Disney pooled their resources with Jerry Bruckheimer and produced an insta-blockbuster. Apathy is the name of the game with “Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” which scored the biggest bow of 2011 despite being a piece of shit that grossed lower in its opening frame than its...

    Jim Cameron Honors Centenary Of Loss Of 1,517 Souls By Re-Releasing 'Titanic' In 3D On April 6, 2012

    After a dozen years as the top-grossing film of all time, a seemingly once-in-a-generation phenomenon, James Cameron's action-heavy period romance "Titanic" was finally unseated from its position as the biggest grossing film of all time by... James Cameron's action-heavy futuristic romance, "Avatar," which topped the earlier film's seemingly unbeatable $1,800,000,000 haul by nearly a billion dollars. But with "Avatar 2" not expected in theaters until 2015, the director has to find some way of keeping his coffers topped up (transplanting yourself into a Na'vi doesn't come cheap, you know), so he's going back to his number two film to give it t...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Fast Five' Starts Off Summer With $83 Million Weekend

    Hooray for Hollywood, or something. The 2011 box office finally snapped out of its doldrums with more reheated crap, “Fast Five” opening to a spectacular-for-Universal $83 million. The car blockbuster’s weekend surpasses “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” as the biggest opening weekend in Universal his...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Rio' Defeats 'Madea' Before The Summer Onslaught Begins

    Hollywood doesn’t really recognize the seasons as clearly as you. Which is why even though you’re in school, summer begins in May, and even though you still have a full month of spring, that period usually closes in Hollywood around this time every year. In 2011, “summer” is beginning even earlier w...

    Box Office: 'Rio' First 2011 Release To Crack $40 Million Opening Weekend; 'Scream' Goes Quiet

    There’s no way to sugarcoat this: it’s been a dismal year at the box office. Studios have their fingers crossed in regards to a tepid-looking summer schedule, but many were hoping the season could be kick(punch)-started early with a strong April, as two new films were tracking well over $40 million ...

    McG's 'This Means War' With Chris Pine, Tom Hardy & Reese Witherspoon Opens Feb 17, 2012

    Found-Footage Superhero Flick 'Chronicle' Lands February 3rdThe time at which big tentpole movies were limited to a few months a year -- the May-July summer season, and the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas -- is long gone. "Alice in Wonderland" made a billion dollars from a March release last year, and 2011 so far has already seen "The Green Hornet," a film that once upon a time would have been seen as summer fare, open in the reputed wilderness of January, something that would have been unheard of only a few years ago. Now, 20th Century Fox have slated a couple of their hopefuls for 2012 and, while both are films that could well hav...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Hop' Defeats Four Newcomers; 'Your Highness' Flops Loudly And Rudely

    Earlier in the year, the tepid box office returns were something to be ignored, as 2011 was competing with the previous year, with both “Avatar” and then the anomaly of “Alice In Wonderland” each raking in a cool billion. Well, it’s April, and it’s time for Hollywood to panic. There have been no genuine out-of-the-box hits so far this year and lots of flops, and the two (barely) $100 million grossers considered underperformers (“Rango” and “Just Go With It”). Let’s face it, part of it is a failure of marketing, but the blame must be laid on inadequate product. Even when it comes to the early year doldrums, this has been a banner year for garb...

    'Rise Of The Apes' Becomes 'Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes'

    This Summer, You Will Believe A Planet Can RiseThose damn dirty apes at Fox can't stop monkeying around with the next film in the "Planet of the Apes" series. First, they went ahead and offered it to every major director only to be turned down. Then they ordered multiple rewrites despite already having a release date. Finally, they declared June 24th to be the day audiences would see "Cesar," though they had already changed the name to "Rise Of The Apes." Then, of course, they bumped the film to Thanksgiving to allow for more time to finish the special effects. Then, at some point, they must have replaced the special effects guys with wizards...
