What I found was an incredible true story that thankfully will be shared and as this new featurette...
 
Cool Videos: Dr. Evil takes Sony and North Korea to school Sure, we all think the whole Sony/North Korea debacle is a huge joke anyway, but nothing quite hits it home like when Dr. Evil himself calls folks out on it.

It's a satisfying cold open and is...

"Awesome Artwork We've Found Around The Net" is the outlet for that passion. In this column I will showcase the...
 
Watch this horrific holiday greeting from The Babadook The praise for director Jennifer Kent’s THE BABADOOK is showing no signs of stopping and rightfully so. I’ve watched the horror film twice now and I can honestly say it was even better the second time around. It’s not surprise that our own Eric Walkuski called it "one of the best films of the year" in his glowing review and today JimmyO showcased it on list of best movies of...
 
First Ted 2 image features Mark Wahlberg and Ted taking in some Scuba diving Seth MacFarlane’s TED went on to gross over $500 million worldwide, becoming one of the most successful R-rated comedies of all-time. A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST had a similar budget of $40-$50 million and didn't make more than $90 million when all was said and done.

Rumor: WB developing six Wonder Woman scripts simultaneously A little while back, we heard a rumor that Warner Bros was developing two screenplays for AQUAMAN at the same time. The theory was they would see which script was more to their liking with the potential to even combine them for the finished product. It sounded like a logical way to approach the unknown but it also made DC and WB seem desperate to force their characters to work on the big screen. Well,...
 
Simon Pegg is an assassin for hire in the trailer for Kill Me Three Times Who doesn't love Simon Pegg? Whether he is playing with the big boys in MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE or STAR TREK, Pegg has always brought something special and unique to tons of films like HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS, THE BOXTROLLS, and his three films with Nick Frost and Edgar Wright.

Kevin Hart helps Will Ferrell Get Hard in this first trailer Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart are two actors who fall into the love 'em or hate 'em category in movies. Ferrell seems to more often be in the love area while there is a lot of hate for Kevin Hart's brand of humor. Personally, I see potential in Kevin Hart if he were to find the right project, but I do see how people could find him annoying. Chances are GET HARD is not going to do much to change that. In the...
