    J.K. Rowling Says Hermione Should've Ended Up With Harry Potter, Not Ron Weasley

    Even though the saga is over, and J.K. Rowling has long determined that the adventures of Harry Potter is over, she can't perhaps help but tinker and wonder.

    Warner Bros. Pulls A Disney, Waves Wand To Make All 'Harry Potter' DVDs Disappear On Dec. 29th

    For a while now, Disney has employed a home video strategy that has paid off in spades. The studio's "vault" system makes titles available for a short window of time on home video, before they are pulled from stores and kept locked up for years until Disney decides to re-release it to great fanfare and even greater sales. This fall the studio tried a new tactic, a 3D converted theatrical re-release before the home video bow. The result? A nearly $100 million domestic haul for "The Lion King (in 3D)" before it's latest BluRay bow and a huge wake-up call to the rest of the industry who suddenly realized there is all kinds of money to be made fr...

Many had forecast that the overstuffed summer would prove disastrous, with Jon Favreau predicting that, "There’s not a weekend where there won’t be teeth on the floor," but ironically it's Favreau's film that proved to be one of the biggest box-office disappointments. Financially, films did very well with three billion-dollar blockbuster...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Captain America' Is Number One, Because That's Just How America Does It

    Marvel is doing the right thing with their superhero productions. They wisely didn’t break the bank after “Iron Man” did a little under $100 million in its opening weekend, instead opting for future adventures within their universe for around the same cost every time. Even with “The Avengers,” said ...
