Ever since the release of the first X-Men movie back in 2000, there has been an intelligent attempt to build up the layers of the Marvel film universe. With thousands of characters created throughout the years, and millions of people now familiar with the heroes that populate the Marvel universe, the creators of the modern Marvel movies, as well as the executives running Marvel Studios, are trying to appease fans by giving them quick cameos or mentions of characters and equipment from the comic books.Read Full Article »

This past weekend the 2016 San Diego Comic Con took place. On the biggest attendance day of the con, one of the events was a panel celebrating the 30th anniversary of Aliens, released on July 20, 1986. Seven thousand fans sat inside Hall H cheering on star Sigourney Weaver, director James Cameron and another half-dozen of the cast and producing talent behind Aliens.
On one hand, it's incredible to think that, 30 years after the release of Aliens, it would still prove to be an incredibly popular and often quoted movie. The impact of Aliens on Hollywood's sequel factory and action/adventure landscape cannot be dismissed.Add a comment (0)

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)

In a little less than three months from now Star Wars: The Force Awakens will arrive in theaters. Surprisingly, there are a staggering number of big mysteries that are still unknown, especially given that the franchise in question is Star Wars.Add a comment (0)

Lucasfilm has made its official announcement and issued a statement addressing that writer Michael Arndt is no longer working on the Episode VII screenplay. That word processing task is now on the desktops of director J.J. Abrams (who's original 9-to-5 job was as a screenwriter) and grizzled veteran writer/director Lawrence Kasdan.Add a comment (1)

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)

I see movies. I’m also on Facebook. Sometimes, the two worlds collide, and I end up shooting the shit about movies with others on Facebook.Add a comment (1)

I didn’t think that World War Z would turn out to be an enjoyable movie. The signs of a troubled film production were there: substantial changes in the screen story from the source material; extensive reshoots of the movie’s ending; big budgetary overruns; and rumors of the director and the star clashing to the point that they had stopped speaking to each other.
But the final product works. World War Z is a decent movie.Add a comment (0)
