    Crash! Boom! Pow! The 15 Best Action Sequences Of 2013

    It seemed as though 2013 was positively clogged up with major "event" movies, each one bigger, louder, and more expensive than the last.

    In Honor Of 'Riddick:' 10 Of The Most Unnecessary Sequels Ever

    If popcorn cinema in 2013 has been defined by one thing, it's been "Sharknado." But if cinema in 2013 has been defined by two things, it's "Sharknado" and... a glut of unnecessary and unwanted sequels. Think about it: "A Good Day to Die Hard," "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," "RED 2," "Percy Jackson and the...

    BRAAAM! 10 Trailers That Use & Abuse The 'Inception' BRAAAM!

    "What's the most resilient parasite? An idea." Little did Christopher Nolan know when he wrote that line, he’d need to add an addendum: an idea that keeps getting pickpocketed over and over again until it loses meaning and ownership, and becomes simply background noise to the general cultural conver...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Evil Dead' Rises to Top, 'G.I. Joe' Plummets, Fights for Second with 'Croods'

    Sony's remake of "Evil Dead" performed better than expected, but fell just below the best horror film opening of the year. "Evil Dead" took #1 for the weekend, a position Paramount hoped to retain for its expensive "G.I. Joe: Retaliation." That film is a global hit, but is fighting for the #2 spot w...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Evil Dead' Screams Into Top Spot

    Did any horror movie buffs think we would ever get to this moment? That a Sam Raimi-produced remake of “The Evil Dead” (known as just “Evil Dead”; the Deadite is in the details) would hit number one?

    'Evil Dead' Leads Friday Pack, 'Jurassic Park 3D' Stomps in Second

    "The Evil Dead" opened well enough on Friday to make it a likely fifth horror-related film to make #1 in 2013. The twelve top-ranked horror flicks thus far have kept the year's to-date grosses from falling off more than they might have otherwise due to several underperforming costly would-be tentpo...

    Why Studios Continue Banking on Franchises Like 'G.I. Joe'; Which Sequels Can You Do Without?

    "G.I. Joe Retaliation," a sequel to 2009's "G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra," took in more than $130 million at the worldwide box office this weekend--although its three-day $40 million domestic number was half its foreign take.

    'G.I. Joe 3' Now In The Works After Big Opening For 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation'

    In a move likely to be viewed by studio execs as a bolstering win rather than an uneasy battle, “GI Joe: Retaliation” has overcome delays, reshoots, and narrative rejiggering to win the weekend box-office with $54.7 million. Leading on to a $132 million global haul, that leaves Paramount with a deep...
