Creed II is happening. This is fact: Sylvester Stallone said so today. And it's a no-brainer because of the success of the first movie, with $103 million domestic on a $30 mil budget.
The question now is: what will Creed II be about? Will Adonis Creed do what Rocky did in his first sequel and win the championship? And will it be a rematch or against a new opponent?Add a comment (0)

Eight grumpy folk from the 19th century are snowed in. Most of them have guns and attitudes, and ain't afraid to use either of the two to disrupt each other's company.
Welcome to the eighth movie by director Quentin Tarantino, The Hateful Eight.
The second trailer for the December 25th release dropped online today. Ironically enough, the marketing embraces the Yueltide season by making fun of it: go see The Hateful Eight with someone you hate. That sounds about right for spending time with the family during the holidays.Add a comment (0)

One of my absolute favorite Pixar films is Monsters Inc. When I first watched it back in 2001, the movie's charm and charisma swept me away. I loved how Team Pixar was able to assemble a story that explained (in a childlike fantasy way) how the world of monsters intersected with the world of human children and also include a strong emotional connection between the film's two main characters, Mike and Sully, and their little ward Boo. After Finding Nemo it's my favorite Pixar movie of all-time.Add a comment (0)

Gravity opened in theaters this weekend, and the box office ticket sales for the movie are estimated to come in somewhere around $55-and-a-half million dollars. Alfonso Cuarón's latest work now has the distinction of being the highest-ever movie to open in the month of October. As well, at least 20% of the ticket sales for Gravity came from IMAX screenings, and 50% from 3D showings. In the year 2013, when box office returns for 3D films have lost much of their luster from the age of 2007's Avatar, Gravity is evidence that cinema-goers made the distinct choice to see the film in an enhanced screen format.Add a comment (5)

Books about the art design of mainstream movies can be lavish tomes filled with conceptual drawings and paintings, but the better ones devote a decent amount of space on their pages to the artists that thought up these fantastic worlds. This approach was done for Titan Books most recent coffee table release, Elysium: The Art of the Film, which details the creation of director Neill Blomkamp's dystopic world of 2154. At 176 pages, Titan's Elysium tome covers the art design from the film in a good way that won't leave you regretting your purchasing decision, if you crave to know more about the influences and reasoning that went into the Elysium universe.Add a comment (0)

Moments ago the BBC revealed the identity of the twelfth incarnation of Doctor Who: 55-year-old Peter Capaldi, a man who's had a solid run of supporting and guest roles on many British shows. The hiring of Capaldi is a bit of a shocker to the new Who series, as it breaks away from the trend of casting younger actors as The Doctor.
For example, outgoing Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith was cast as the character when he was then 26 years of age. Before Smith, David Tennant got the role at the age of 34.Add a comment (1)
