When you follow movie news as closely as we do, you learn to roll your eyes at terrible ideas and move on. There's not point in getting worked up when a truly awful project is announced because getting worked up over every bad idea that comes out of Hollywood would mean getting worked up every single day of the year and we just don't have the energy to deal with getting worked up so often (whew).
But, today is a special day. Today, they've gone and announced movies based on Disneyland's 'It's a Small World' ride and popular Easter candy, Peeps Marshmallow Treats. Today, they have gone too far.
'Frozen' is a juggernaut. In addition to winning two Academy Awards and becoming the highest-grossing animated film of all time, the movie has seemingly struck a chord with an entire generation. You can't go out in public these days without hearing an adorable kid belt out a hilariously mangled version of "Let It Go." It's already a cultural touchstone. Children are going to be raised on this movie.
And, shockingly, Disney is not talking at all about 'Frozen 2.'
There is no easy way to finish 'Fast and Furious 7' without being somewhat insensitive toward the tragic death of series lead Paul Walker, but the cast and crew found the best and most noble solution imaginable. We already knew that Walker's brothers were going to join the production to help finish the film as body doubles, but they officially arrived on set and it looks like this plan is going to work.
When Paul Walker tragically died last November, the world mourned an actor who was not only a welcome screen presence, but a genuinely well-liked and respected guy. It was especially hard to hear the reactions of his 'Fast and Furious' franchise co-stars. This is a series all about friendship and family, so the loss of a key member of that crew hits hard. 'Fast and Furious 7' recently resumed shooting after an extended hiatus to rework the film and fans have been wondering how the production will work around the loss of a major character. Now, Universal hinted at a strange but touching solution.
With 'Joe' about to hit theaters, audiences will soon get a reminder of just how good Cage can be. But let's celebrate his long-awaited return to excellence by combing through his filmography and picking the moments that best define his special brand of craziness. Anyone can be good, but only Nicolas Cage can be Nicolas Cage.
After years of playing second fiddle to Disney in the theme park business, Universal is officially coming out swinging. In addition to an expanded focus on their Harry Potter and Simpsons licenses, and a new 'Despicable Me' ride, they have finally announced an attraction based on their massively popular 'Fast and Furious' franchise.
Like 'Iron Man 3' and 'Thor: The Dark World,' the question was never whether or not 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' would take the number one spot at the box office, but rather how much it would earn while sitting pretty at the top of the list. Also, like its "Phase 2" predecessors, the second Steve Rogers adventure proved that people are still punch-drunk in love with the Avengers characters.
LEGO isn't in the habit of making sets based on extremely violent and highly sexualized HBO fantasy series, but thankfully, someone is out there filling that niche. Custom LEGO creation company Citizen Brick revealed their latest creation and it's a doozy: 13 minifigs based on characters from 'Game of Thrones.'
There are two reasons why superheroes tend to change their costumes every time a sequel rolls around: (A) it gives the filmmakers a chance to put their own unique stamp on them, and (B) it means they can release a new action figure. Thanks to video from the set of 'The Avengers 2,' we've already seen what Hawkeye's new outfit looks like and received our first look at the costumes for the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, but today brings a look at Captain America's new getup.
Insert your own "when it rains, it pours" joke right here. Darren Aronofsky's instantly controversial biblical epic 'Noah' overcame mixed buzz to win the box office this weekend, catering to both religious audiences and film buffs who like weird movies from unique, picky directors. But all was not well for everyone -- the latest film from a certain Hollywood action legend got washed away in 'Noah''s success.
Rotten Tomatoes doesn't always provide a perfect look at the world of film criticism, but it does paint a pretty consistent picture of what films are widely loved or widely hated. Any film that reaches 60% positive reviews or higher once they've all been tallied is considered "fresh" and anything under that is "rotten." It's very rare for a movie to reach 100% positive reviews (there's always going to be one hater), but it's just as uncommon for a movie to reach 0% (there's always going to be one stubborn defender).
Luckily, we live in a world were someone goes out of their way to track down and put each of these all-time stinkers on a list for easy referencing.
Young-adult entertainment goes through phases and we're currently waist deep in the "sci-fi dystopian" phase, where 'The Hunger Games' is the obvious high watermark. Although 'Divergent' will make a run at the throne in a few weeks, 'The Maze Runner' is taking aim at Katniss and company later this year, and the new poster looks strategically designed to tap into your love of that franchise.
