    On The Rise 2014: 12 Actors To Watch

    In Hollywood, you can be on top of the world one minute, and then a public indiscretion, or a handful of box office disasters, or the simple fact of getting old, can each result in fewer and fewer calls (you can count on hearing from Millennium Entertainment no matter what).

    20 Fictional Movie Bands That Rocked Your World

    Movies and music are closely entwined, as the name of this site demonstrates and as we've shown several times recently (each word there links to a different recent music/movie feature).

    Discuss: What Do The Season 2 “Reboots” Of ‘Fargo’ & ‘True Detective’ Say About The Future Of TV?

    Hey, ever hear the one about how we’re living in a “Golden Age of Television”? Of course you have. It’s a cliché so often repeated by now that it has the ring of well-duh irrefutable truth. And even the staunchest holdouts, proud to not know their Walter Whites from their Red Reznikovs, can’t deny t...

    "Guardians Of The Galaxy" has been in theaters for a whole week now, and finding enormous success everywhere it goes.

    Discuss: Are We On The Cusp Of A Video Game Movie Revolution?

    If you’re sick of the wave of comic-book movies over the last few years, you’d better brace yourself: the video game movie is coming, and it’s coming for you.
