How rare is it for a Will Smith sci-fi blockbuster to not open at number one at the box office? Also, how horrible must it feel for a Will Smith sci-fi blockbuster to not only get beaten by the second week of a long running franchise about fast cars, but by a magician thriller headlined by Jesse Eisenberg?
Ridley Scott's science-fiction classic 'Blade Runner' may be more than 30 years old, but it still feels as fresh and exciting as it did upon release back in 1982. Perhaps that's why the current rights-holders (who acquired the name in 2011) are so fervent about creating a sequel -- it's a pre-built universe that feels like it's ready for dozens of additional stories. And with the news that a new writer has been attached to rewrite the script, it appears that we may be seeing a sequel sooner rather than later.
Now that 'Iron Man 3' has arrived and made all of the money in the world, it's time for Marvel fans to turn their attention to 'Thor 2,' which is six long months away. We've already seen a trailer and a poster, but much of the film still remains shrouded in mystery. Today we get a bunch of new 'Thor 2' pics, but do they shed more light on what we can expect?
The final 'Monsters University' trailer is here and it gives us our best look yet at the latest film from Pixar. Although we're still not completely sold on this one (more on that in a bit), a Pixar release is generally a cause for celebration and animation fans will find much to appreciate here.
With 'Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters' only a few months away, it's time that we got down to brass tacks and started asking the important questions. Questions like "Was anyone, anywhere, actually looking forward to another 'Percy Jackson' movie?" Snark aside, the new 'Sea of Monsters' trailer goes a long way to justifying its existence by showing off lots of monsters. Lots and lots of monsters.
What looked like one of the big box office showdowns of the summer turned out to not be battle at all. Not only did 'Fast and Furious 6' take the number one spot at the box office, it did it while shattering records, leaving 'The Hangover Part 3' coughing on its exhaust.
The current discussion around 'The Avengers 2' has shifted from the stars demanding higher pay to something equally inside baseball: the rights to the characters of Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch. In the pages of the comics, they're mutants and Avengers, which has led to a pretty sticky situation. Fox, who has the X-Men rights, plans to use Quicksilver for the upcoming 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.' Marvel and writer/director Joss Whedon plan to use him for 'Avengers 2.' This conflict remained hidden when Whedon went on Late Night to chat about the characters with Jimmy Fallon.
When is a $70 million opening not a success? When its predecessor opened to $75 million four years ago. This is the predicament facing 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' which opened at number one at box office while being something of a disappointment.
The season finale of SNL was the fifth time that Ben Affleck has hosted the show, officially making him a member of the "Fiver Timers" club. You may remember the pomp and circumstance that surrounded Justin Timberlake when he joined this elite group, so how was the Oscar-winning director of 'Argo' inducted?
Of course there was an 'Argo' sketch on last night's SNL. How could you get Ben Affleck to host and not have some kind of 'Argo' sketch? However, what they came up with proved much stranger and much funnier than you'd expect. What if Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad protested 'Argo' by making a movie about the making of 'Argo'? Well, now we know!
