    Roberto Orci Officially Leaves ‘Amazing Spider-Man 3’; Series Could Be In Limbo

    “Where there’s smoke there’s fire.” I kinda hate that term because it always lends credence to every damn rumor out there (the recent Gus Van Sant/”Death Note” rumor of late is false and premature, for example).

    Mid-Year VFX Report: 'Godzilla' and Marvel Rule

    Without a "Gravity" this year, the wow factor might not be as strong but certainly the Oscar race is now wide open. Yet in surveying the first-half of 2014, only "Godzilla" looks like a potential nominee. But there are still plenty of bake-off contenders, with solid VFX work on display in "Captain A...

    Box-Office: 'X-Men Days Of Future Past' Soars To $90 Million Memorial Day Weekend Opening

    In order to convey that the X-Men are smaller, less-known characters in the Marvel Universe compared to The Avengers and The Amazing Spider-Man, director Bryan Singer has been given to describe the “X-Men” of late as the “bastard stepchild of the comic-book universe.” And while the X-Men are far fro...

    Box Office Top Ten: 'Neighbors' Pushes 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Out of Top Slot

    Original Seth Rogen comedy "Neighbors" (Universal) easily won the weekend. The race for first place wasn't even close against the second weekend of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" (Sony). When comic-book movies open strong they usually fall off dramatically.
