    Weekend Box Office: 'Lion King' Beats Back 'Moneyball,' Boy Brawler 'Abduction' To Keep #1 Slot

    "Hakuna Matata!" proclaims Disney, discovering what amounts to an entirely new revenue stream. “The Lion King 3D” has taken the crown decisively for the second straight weekend with $22 million, amidst some otherwise heavy fall competition that was a lot buzzier and, without a doubt, more expensive....

    TIFF '11 Review: 'Killer Elite' Offers Some Cheap Thrills But Not Much Else

    "Killer Elite," the new Jason Statham/Clive Owen/Robert De Niro testosterone tsunami, claims to have been inspired by a true story, and goes about setting the action in the early 1980s as a way of justifying its supposed historical validity. The problem, of course, is that the movie is so silly, so ...

    Watch: Jason Statham Will Rescue Robert De Niro From A Sea Of Clichés In New 'Killer Elite' Trailer

    "Game over." "Close it down." "You have no idea who you're messing with." "How did you get this number?" "Now the gloves come off." "You really are one crazy son of a bitch."

    'Dream House' With Daniel Craig & Rachel Weisz Gets A Nightmarishly Bad Poster

    Plus New One-Sheets For 'Killer Elite' & 'The Whistleblower'While we don't want to be that guy, necessarily, there are some films that start to look like disasters from miles away. No one sets out to make a bad picture, but sometimes fate conspires in the worst possible way, and a pile up of misfortune leads to something that, even months before release, is clearly fated for horrible reviews, worse box office and a quick trip to the bargain bin.
