    Watch: First Trailer For Tornado Disaster Flick 'Into The Storm'

    What on Earth is "Into The Storm"? To be honest, we had no idea about this one either, but Warner Bros. is starting to get the word out about this presumably modestly budgeted disaster flick, in which a tornado wreaks some tremendous havoc.

    Richard Armitage Talks 'The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug,' Deleted Scenes Between Gandalf And Thrain & More

    Although it’s appropriate that Bilbo Baggins serves as the central figure in the three “The Hobbit” films that Peter Jackson created to adapt J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel of the same name, another character provides their narrative backbone: Thorin. Played by Richard Armitage, the would-be dwarf king seek...

    Review: Peter Jackson’s ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug’ Starring Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen & More

    If the “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” was a bloated 2 hour and 49 minute slog, replete with dull merriment, songs and a distended prologue that threatened to put you to sleep, then in contrast, “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” is a brisk, engagingly paced 2 hours and 41 minutes which goes ...

    Josh Brolin & Ryan Gosling Among Early Names To Play Bruce Wayne In 'Superman Vs. Batman'

    There is no script, there are no formal offers or meetings taking place, and obviously, it's still the opening stages of development for "Superman Vs. Batman." And yet, casting the role of Bruce Wayne is going to be key for the next film, because it's likely whoever lands the gig will be wearing the...

    What Kind Of Batman Will Superman Face? 5 Choices For 'Superman & Batman'

    This weekend at Comic-Con Warner Bros dropped a bombshell: instead of announcing a sequel to this summer's "Man of Steel" (or a full-on "Justice League" movie), they revealed they would instead be bringing a Batman/Superman team-up movie to the big screen. Once again overseen by the "Man of Steel" t...

    'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey': What Worked & What Didn't

    For a long time, it seemed as though "The Hobbit" would never get made. Despite the multi-billion dollar success of Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" films, the rights to J.R.R. Tolkien's earlier novel were tangled up, and Jackson didn't even seem to be sure he wanted to go back to Middle Earth. E...

    Review: ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ Rallies From A Goofy Opening To Become Another Thrilling, If Familiar, Action-Adventure Epic

    At almost three hours, Peter Jackson’s fourth foray into the world of J.R.R. Tolkien, “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” is initially worrisome and typically self-indulgent. An extremely jarring 48 fps look -- which looks like an odd "Masterpiece Theater" in HD -- is unsettling, and the opening is ...

    20 New Images From The 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,' Including First Look At Lee Pace As Legolas' Dad

    We imagine one of the buzz words in movie marketing departments these days, along with 'Pinterest' and 'viral games' is 'app.' Barely any major movie hits theaters without some kind of iOS-related promotional tie-in, often in the form of a game, or something similar.

    A Slightly Revised 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' Trailer Focuses On The 13 Dwarves

    "I cannot guarantee his safety, nor will I be responsible for his fate," Richard Armitage's Thorin Oakenshield says to Ian McKellen's Gandalf The Grey about Martin Freeman's diminutive Bilbo Baggins in the latest trailer for Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey." Hey, I have a great id...

    Two teen-centered films from New Line and FilmNation have been quietly picking up steam as of late, and while neither production packs tremendous star power under its respective wings, our latest casting report shows they've decided to pull in some fine character actors and fresh talent instead.
