    "Thoroughly Bogus," "Disastrous," "Atrocious": First Reviews For '47 Ronin' Arrive

    A ballooning budget, reshoots, editing room wrangles and more have long marked "47 Ronin" as a cinematic poison apple.

    Joe Carnahan Comments On '47 Ronin,' Says $200 Million Budget Put Unfair Pressure On Carl Rinsch

    Watch: Super Bowl Spots Directed By Jon Favreau, Carl Erik Rinsch, Jake Scott, Noam Murro & More

    Super Bowl advertising wasn't just about the movies. No, seriously. Plenty of major brands spent big chunks of their marketing budget in the hopes they could capture the attention of the nation.

    Discuss: As 'World War Z' Gets Seven Weeks Of Reshoots, Why Are So Many Tentpoles Being Delayed & Reworked?

    Reshoots: they're the new principal photography, it would seem. Every so often, a story will crop up that some major movie has reassembled its cast and crew for what's usually referred to as "additional photography."
