Since its 1999 release, David Fincher's 'Fight Club' has gone from box office disappointment to one of the most influential films in recent memory. When the film first achieved its cult sensation status, you just know that conversations were held about crafting a sequel. Now 'Fight Club 2' finally is coming, but it's coming from author Chuck Palahniuk who wrote the original novel, and, surprisingly, the second coming of Tyler Durden won't be another book, it'll be a graphic novel.
After multiple major delays, the long-awaited sequel to '300' is finally nearing release, and now Warner Bros. has revealed the new '300: Rise of an Empire' trailer. After all, we wouldn't blame anyone for thinking that this movie vanished into the ether or simply never existed in the first place. But is the wait worth it? What got accomplished during all of those delays? Will 'Rise of an Empire' live up to the still-popular first film? Ask your own rhetorical questions as you hit play.
Say what you want about the franchise as a whole, but the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movies really do have a knack for casting. Incredible actors (and serviceable movie stars) have filled virtually every role in the series' large ensemble, so it's no surprise that the upcoming fifth film is looking to cast a beloved thespian. Two-time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz is reportedly in negotiations to join 'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' as the latest villain to cross swords with Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow.
There have only been a handful of characters who have appeared in every 'Star Wars' movie so far. So, it's not too surprising to see that one of the saga's most important (and popular) seems to be officially back for 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' Straight from the Twitter account for J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot production company, here's a look at at the 'Star Wars: Episode 7' workshop.
'Thor 2' has plenty of surprising twists and turns, but one the biggest occurs in the literal final moments of the film, right before the cut to ending credits. Before you read any further, we're about to completely spoil the ending of the film, so turn back now if you haven't seen it yet. You've been warned!
After years of struggling against the odds and barely surviving in a rapidly changing world, Blockbuster announced that it's officially set to close the remainder of its US stores. For some, this is a day or mourning. For others, a day of celebration. For all of us, it's just a reminder that the way we consume media has changed so drastically and so quickly that the thought of Blockbuster going out of business would have been unthinkable a decade ago.
Since normal people tend to work quotes from 'Anchorman' into our everyday lives and attempt Ron Burgundy impressions on a daily basis, it shouldn't come as a surprise that a local news anchor would be well versed in the dialogue and mannerisms of Will Ferrell's iconic character. What does come as a surprise is that said anchor put on a bushy mustache, get in his flashiest suit and played Ron Burgundy for the entirety of a news broadcast this Halloween.
Wes Anderson's incredibly distinctive style has been parodied before, but rarely with the skill that 'SNL' and host Edward Norton displayed in the most recent episode of everyone's favorite comedy variety show. A pre-recorded bit, the fake trailer for 'The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders,' imagines what an Anderson-directed horror movie would look like and the results are near perfect.
It's Fall and Halloween is right around the corner, so you know what this means: pumpkins, and lots of 'em. Like us, the folks at 'SNL' know that this is the season where pumpkin products take center stage and invade every corner of your home, but unlike us, 'SNL' has the time, budget and duty to make a fake commercial that grotesquely showcases that there is one area of our lives that pumpkin flavor hasn't invaded quite yet.
Woody Allen has been hit and miss for the past decade or two, but between 'Midnight in Paris' and 'Blue Jasmine,' the legendary filmmaker seems to be hitting a new stride. So we have high hopes for hist latest production. We knew that it would star Emma Stone and Colin Firth, but now we know what it's going to be called. Drumroll, please ...
Just when you thought Liam Neeson's late-career resurrection as a gruff 'n growling action hero may be ready for a break, the first 'Non-Stop' trailer shows up, proving that the man who once played Oskar Schindler has officially transformed into the closest thing the 21st century has to Arnold Schwarzenegger. Not that we'll complain too much -- Neeson is pretty good at making preposterous action movies work and this one looks like another entertaining entry in the "Liam Neeson Kills Everyone" sub-genre.
The timing of the new 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty' trailer is impeccable. Ben Stiller's latest effort as a director premiered to mixed-but-passionate reviews at the New York Film Festival this past weekend and this new look at the film feels prepared to ride that buzz all the way to film's December release (and the 2014 Oscars?).
