The Ides of March, starring Ryan Gosling and George Clooney, coming to Blu-ray in January

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Although a good film, THE IDES OF MARCH wasn’t the great film that everyone was hoping it was going to be.  It had fabulous performances from Ryan Gosling, George Clooney, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Evan Rachel Wood and Paul Giamatti, but the script just wasn’t powerful enough to take it where it […]

Hugo (directed by Martin Scorsese)

Monday, November 28th, 2011

After losing his father to an accidental fire, twelve year old Hugo goes to live with his uncle who tends the clocks at a train station.  When his uncle up and leaves, Hugo’s left to fend for himself and when he’s not stealing to survive or doing his uncle’s job, he spends his time trying […]

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 beats The Muppets at the Thanksgiving weekend box office

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Well, the news for the Thanksgiving weekend box office ended up being worse than we originally thought.  As Wednesday wrapped up, it looked like THE MUPPETS was going to pull in over $50 million and maybe make a run at finishing in first place.  But as the holiday progressed, THE MUPPETS […]

Young Adult, War Horse, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and the Top Ten Oscar films still to come

Saturday, November 26th, 2011

By Nathan Swank I firmly believe we have already seen a few of the Oscar contenders this year in TREE OF LIFE, MONEYBALL and THE HELP.  However, there are at least ten Oscar picture potentials still to be released. And no matter how much I’m excited for MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL or even SHERLOCK HOLMES: […]

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 looks set to take the Thanksgiving weekend box office

Thursday, November 24th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Even though most of us are really pulling for THE MUPPETS to be the big winner this Thanksgiving weekend, it looks like it’s going to be a repeat performance from THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN PART 1.  Preliminary numbers point to the fourth film in the Twilight series to bring in […]

Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron in images from Ridley Scott’s Prometheus

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Most people seem excited about Ridley Scott revisiting his science fiction roots with the ALIEN prequel (kind of) film PROMETHEUS.  We don’t know much about it at this point, only that it takes place before the events in the original ALIEN film, but won’t actually be a true prequel.  But today […]

Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner and Simon Pegg in new clips from Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Sure, I’m excited for all the Oscar-worthy movies that are due to hit theaters in the next month and a half, but the movie I’m most excited about is the fourth installment of the Mission Impossible series; MISSION IMPOSSIBLE GHOST PROTOCOL.  Everything we’ve seen so far indicates it will be a […]

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 easily takes the weekend box office

Sunday, November 20th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant The question was never really if THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN PART 1 would be successful, but rather a question of just how successful the film was going to be.  The answer is that it’s good enough for third all time in terms of single day opening records behind HARRY POTTER […]

Pixar releases another impressive trailer for Brave

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant After the shameless cash grab that was CARS 2, it looks like Pixar is back on track with BRAVE.  And although the film looks impressive, I do have to point out one small issue I have with the film already; the shape of Princess Merida’s face.  Does it seem overly circular […]

Henry Cavill’s Immortals edges Adam Sandler’s Jack and Jill at the weekend box office

Sunday, November 13th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant For a lot of us, IMMORTALS was a dry run for Henry Cavill to see how he’ll do donning the cape in the Superman reboot, MAN OF STEEL.  Although $32 million isn’t going to shatter any records, these days a $30+ million opening isn’t too shabby.  This weekend, it was enough […]

Robert Pattinson and Sarah Gadon in new pics from Cosmopolis

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant While fans eagerly anticipate the November 18th release of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN PART 1, which will see stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart reunited, there’s another Pattinson film out there that might be more appealing to those that aren’t Twi-hards.  that film is David Cronenberg’s COSMOPOLIS, which features Pattinson […]

Puss In Boots beats out Tower Heist and Harold and Kumar at the weekend box office

Sunday, November 6th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant When the snow storm hit last weekend, there were those that felt the movie that got hurt the worst was Dreamworks Animation’s Shrek spinoff PUSS IN BOOTS.  The movie only brought in $34 million last weekend, but this weekend it brought in $33 million, which is barely a 3% drop.  Normal […]

In Time

Monday, October 31st, 2011

In the future, people are engineered (don’t ask me how) to stop aging at twenty-five, but once your twenty-fifth birthday hits, the clock on your arm starts counting down with only a year to live.  The good news is the world’s currency is now time, so when you get paid, it adds to your clock.  […]

Puss In Boots takes the weekend box office while In Time and The Rum Diary struggle

Sunday, October 30th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Cartoons always do well.  But I’m actually a little surprised that Dreamworks Animation’s Shrek spinoff PUSS IN BOOTS didn’t do even better than the $33 million it looks like it’s going to finish with.  I thought the previews for the film were great and as the sequels progressed, Puss was the […]

Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson all get character posters for The Hunger Games

Thursday, October 27th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant A while back, we got a look at the various district seals that will be featured in THE HUNGER GAMES and today we get some cool, individual posters for all of your favorite Hunger Games characters.  Today, various sites around the net debuted the posters of Katniss, Gale, Peeta, Rue, Effie, […]

Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner and Paula Patton get serious in the new Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol trailer

Thursday, October 27th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Of all the movies on the horizon in the next couple of months, none of them have me more excited than MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL.  Yes, I’m a big Tom Cruise fan, but everything we’ve seen so far form the fourth Mission Impossible film has been fantastic.  From the looks of […]

Aardman Animation releases a new trailer for The Pirates! Band Of Misfits

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant One of the family-friendly films that’s flown under the radar is the Aardman Animation film THE PIRATES! BAND OF MISFITS that’s due to hit theaters next year on March 30th.  This is right up my alley too, because although I’m not a huge Wallace & Grommit fan, I loved CHICKEN RUN, […]

Chloe Grace Moretz, Jude Law and Sacha Baron Cohen in Martin Scorsese’s Hugo trailer

Monday, October 24th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Much like I can’t seem to get into Steven Spielberg’s THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN, I just can’t seem to get into Martin Scorsese’s HUGO.  I’m not sure what it is, but neither story interests me and neither of the trailers we’ve seen so far from HUGO have convinced me this is […]

The Three Musketeers 3D

Monday, October 24th, 2011

Europe is on the brink of war with the Duke of Buckingham and Cardinal Richelieu both using a beautiful assassin  in a double crossing plot to overthrow a young and naive King Louis XIII.  Luckily for the King, an aspiring musketeer named D’Artagnan unites with three renown outlaw musketeers to put an end to this […]

Drew Pearce hired to write Sherlock Holmes 3 for Robert Downey Jr.

Sunday, October 23rd, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS doesn’t come out for another month and a half, but that’s not going to stop Warner Bros. from hiring a writer for the third Sherlock Holmes film.  Apparently, Robert Downey Jr. likes having Drew Pearce write the third installment of his trilogies because Pearce will […]

Paranormal Activity 3 opens huge, while The Three Musketeers flops at the weekend box office

Sunday, October 23rd, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant I don’t pretend to understand the fascination with the PARANORMAL ACTIVITY franchise, so I’m not going to attempt to explain how the third film in the series about hidden cameras catching ghosts/spirits can make $55 million in a weekend.  I’m going to assume it’s because it had zero competition from other […]

Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law and Noomi Rapace in a new trailer for Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Just when I was complaining that the marketing for SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS was a little on the light side, we get new banners and a brand new trailer to get us excited.  It seems the second trailer is more of the same and the movie will follow closely […]

Hugh Jackman’s Real Steel beats Ryan Gosling’s The Ides of March at the weekend box office

Sunday, October 9th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Hugh Jackman’s boxing robot film REAL STEEL ran away with the weekend box office, bringing in close to $30 million.  The film has received mixed reviews, but most seem pleased with the “fun” of the film, but disappointed in the rest of it.  In second place was George Clooney’s THE IDES […]

The Ides of March

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

Stephen Myers (Ryan Gosling) is an ambitious, yet idealistic campaign manager that believes he’s found the perfect candidate in Mike Morris (George Clooney).  Morris is everyone’s dream politician; he’s presumably honest, he wants to tax the rich, stop the wars, balance the budget and make America a better place.  It’s easy to see why Stephen […]

Dream House

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

Will Atenton finally decides to leave the big city world of publishing to settle down with his family in a picture perfect sleepy neighbourhood  home.  But Will soon discovers that this house is home to a collection of brutal murders with killer still at large and a mystery only he can solve. Sigh.  I love […]

Dolphin Tale and Moneyball top the box office while What’s Your Number, with Chris Evans and Anna Faris, flops

Sunday, October 2nd, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant For most of this weekend, MONEYBALL was on pace to take the box office, but it just couldn’t beat out the wholesomeness of DOLPHIN TALE.  But the good news is that life is back to normal and THE LION KING 3D fell to number 3.  I still think it’s ridiculous that […]

The Lion King 3D beats Moneyball, Killer Elite and Abduction at the box office

Sunday, September 25th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Seriously, America?  Last week you made THE LION KING 3D the #1 movie in America with a whopping $29 million and then you go back and make it the #1 movie again with another $22 million.  Unbelievable.  Everyone is fully aware that you can go to Wal-mart and buy this movie…right?  […]

The Lion King 3D beats Drive and Contagion at the weekend box office

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

Posed by: Brad Sturdivant So thanks a lot, America.  You made the re-release of THE LION KING ($29 million…seriously?), in 3D no less, the number one movie in America.  So quality films like DRIVE and CONTAGION were completely skipped over so you could go see a 2D, 17 year old animated movie that was converted […]

Contagion beats The Help and Warrior at the weekend box office

Sunday, September 11th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Early box office numbers indicate that this weekend will be the worst financially performing weekend of the year at the box office.  Yes, even worse than the weekend that Hurricane Irene kept half the East Coast inside on Saturday and Sunday.  What makes this more confusing is that this weekend didn’t […]

The Help beats The Debt and Shark Night 3D at the weekend box office

Sunday, September 4th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Who would have thought that a little movie about race relations in the South would be #1 at the box office for three weekends in a row?  That’s exactly what THE HELP has done, this time beating out all the newcomers at the box office.  THE DEBT, APOLLO 18 and SHARK […]

Ryan Gosling looks intense in a new image and TV spot from Drive

Friday, September 2nd, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant I’m extremely excited to see how American audiences react to Nicolas Winding Refn’s “action” film DRIVE.  I’m afraid too many people are going to go into it thinking it’s another incarnation of Fast and Furious.  But hopefully enough people will want to go see it to understand why Refn won the […]

The Help wins again while Colombiana and Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark finish strong at the weekend box office

Sunday, August 28th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant If you live on the East Coast, then chances are good you’ve been impacted somehow by Hurricane Irene.  Well, movie theaters are not immune to the weather and theaters in NYC, Boston, D.C. and many other cities along the coast closed down on Saturday and Sunday, leading to the worst movie-going […]

Conan, Fright Night, Spy Kids 4D and One Day all struggle at the Weekend Box Office

Sunday, August 21st, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant What a strange weekend at the box office.  First, it looks like last week’s #2 film, THE HELP, is going to be snagging the top spot this weekend, while RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES falls to #2.  From there, we get a string of new releases, all of which […]

The Help does well while Glee 3D and 30 Minutes or Less struggle at the weekend box office

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant The last few weekends of the summer are always filled with movies the studios like, but don’t necessarily think will actually do well.  This weekend had a very eclectic mix of movies, ranging from the feel-good Southern drama THE HELP to the TV phenomenon turned shameless money-grabbing movie GLEE: THE 3D […]

Kenny Wormald gives his best Kevin Bacon impression in new trailer for the Footloose remake

Friday, August 12th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant In an attempt to get us all pumped up to see the remake of a classic 80′s film, Paramount has released a new trailer for the upcoming reboot of FOOTLOOSE. It is hilarious, but not in a good way. I can’t decide if my favorite part is Kenny Wormald doing his […]

Rooney Mara is a boarding school bad girl in the trailer for Tanner Hall

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant Ever since she was cast as the famous fictional character Lisbeth Salander in the upcoming David Fincher film THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, Rooney Mara has become wildly popular and everyone wants to work with her. Actually, some people already have worked with her as is the case with the […]

Rooney Mara looks innocent in new images from Tanner Hall

Monday, August 8th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Perhaps sensing that Rooney Mara’s star is almost completely set to take off with this winter’s THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, Anchor Bay is ready to pounce on the hype machine and release the 2009 film TANNER HALL.  Well, I should say that the film was finished in 2009 but […]

Rise of the Planet of the Apes tops The Change-Up at the weekend box office

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant I’m not sure what it is, but people just love the idea of apes taking over the world.  Tim Burton’s 2001 remake of PLANET OF THE APES managed to pull in $68 million on its opening weekend and this weekend’s prequel, RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, looks like it […]

The Smurfs and Cowboys & Aliens battle it out at the weekend box office

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Even though Neil Patrick Harris and Jon Favreau are seriously testing their fans loyalty this weekend by starring in two disappointing films, audiences can’t seem to decide which one they liked better.  On one hand, THE SMURFS is doing pretty well considering how horrible the previews were, but it is a […]

Captain America beats Harry Potter at the weekend box office

Sunday, July 24th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant After the record breaking performance of HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS PART 2 last weekend, I thought there might be a slight chance that it would be #1 two weeks in a row.  But then I saw CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER and realized what a shame it would be […]

Robert Pattinson and Uma Thurman get close in the Bel Ami trailer

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant No matter how hard you try, you just can’t avoid Robert Pattinson news.  He’s currently filming COSMOPOLIS for director David Cronenberg, but he has THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN PART 1 coming out in November and has already finished BEL AMI, which doesn’t have a release date yet.  However, I’m guessing […]

Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan star in the impressive Drive trailer

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Even after it debuted at Cannes to rave reviews and eventually won Nicolas Winding Refn the award for best director, I still wasn’t looking forward to this film.  DRIVE is about a Hollywood stunt driver that moonlights as a getaway driver for bad guys.  But he gets attached to his neighbor […]

First image from Prometheus debuts, but without a look at Noomi Rapace or Michael Fassbender

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant I just can’t get into Ridley Scott’s prequel to ALIEN called PROMETHEUS.  I love the cast and I’m typically a fan of Scott’s films, but the Alien franchise lost me after ALIEN 3 and revisiting it so many years later just doesn’t do anything for me.  And today we get the […]

Captain America: The First Avenger

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

Face it; Captain America is a cheesy superhero.  There’s really no way to get around it.  He has the worst costume of all major superheroes, his only gadget is a shield that inexplicably returns to him boomerang-style and when there’s a corny line to be said in the comic books, CA is there to say […]

Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried in the first images from In Time

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant If you were to do a search for images of Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried together on this site, you’ll find images of them from an “untitled” film, then in I’M.MORTAL and then again for NOW and finally, for IN TIME.  Don’t get confused; they’re all the same movie.  I have […]

Katniss Everdeen’s Mockingjay pin is the focus of the first Hunger Games poster

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant The “hunger” for more HUNGER GAMES news is going strong and Lionsgate is going to capitalize on every ounce of publicity they can over the next eight months.  We got some very early shots of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen a while back and now we get a “motion poster”, which […]

Christian Bale puts the suit back on in The Dark Knight Rises teaser trailer

Monday, July 18th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant Are you having a tough Monday? I have just the thing to cure your blues as Christopher Nolan has released a new teaser trailer for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Watching a teaser trailer for such a wildly anticipated film will send chills up your spine and wake you up. Heck, it […]

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 breaks several weekend box office records

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant The final installment to the Harry Potter series (read our review: HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS PART 2) is now one of the biggest movies of all time.  Already claiming the record for highest midnight gross with $43.5 million and then shattering the single day box office record total with […]

Hanna, starring Saoirse Ronan and Eric Bana coming to Blu-ray in September

Saturday, July 16th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Along with THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU, I thought HANNA was one of the best sleeper hits of the Spring.  It’s curious that they were both released by Universal.  Maybe they should re-think the way they market their movies.  But in case you missed it in theaters, HANNA is coming to Blu-ray on […]

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 already shattering box office records

Friday, July 15th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Director David Yates won over this mild Harry Potter fan with a fantastic final film to the franchise and it looks like the film is impressing just about everyone.  Critics seem to all agree that this is a great film (read our review of HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS PART […]
