    While we may bemoan studios forever clinging to sequels and franchises, there is a very good reason why. They make shitloads of money. Thus far, "The Fast And The Furious" franchise has brought just under $1 billion worldwide at the box office, doing more than triple the budget for these films. That...

    Additional Superbowl Ads From 'Drive Angry 3D,' 'Rango,' 'Kung Fu Panda 2,' 'Rio,' Limitless,' 'Just Go With It' & Many, Many MoreApparently there's this thing called the Superbowl on TV.

Below are some of the latest that have aired, including, "Battle: Los Angeles," "Fast Five," and "Priest," plus other spots released earlier in the week. The best one so far of all these, is by far, Jonathan Liebesman's alien invasion picture starring Aaron Eckhart. Trai...
