A few weeks ago, this column was skeptical that Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' could reach $300 million. Now, it seems impossible that it won't. Thanks to ecstatic word of mouth, killer marketing and only one genuinely successful box office challenger (that would be 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'), Marvel's oddball space opera has managed to spend three of the past four weekends at the number one spot at the box office, giving it enough momentum to officially become the highest grossing film of 2014.
ScreenCrush’s WookieLeaks is a weekly roundup of everything 'Star Wars'! From 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' to the upcoming spinoffs and the TV shows, if it pertains to that long ago, far away galaxy, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, we parse through a whole bunch of crazy new rumors, learn when 'Star Wars Rebels' will premiere, and salivate over a new 'Star Wars' board game.
Just in time for the release of 'Gone Girl,' David Fincher's beautifully shot, black and white commercials are less about clothing and more about ... the idea of clothes? Maybe? In true Fincher fashion, these ads feel like they're hiding a secret or two. They're moving paintings of ideas and feelings.
Just when you think you have a handle on all of the rumors and spoilers for 'The Avengers 2,' a new and intriguing concept rears its head. Yes, it's once again time to play the "Marvel Cinematic Universe Rumor and/or Spoiler" game and this time, it's all about future iterations of Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Spoilers ahead, obviously.
Marvel Studios and the character of Tony Stark/Iron Man transformed Robert Downey Jr. from a has-been into one of the biggest movie stars on the planet, so it's not surprising that he'll sing their praises outside the context of the movies he stars in. However, he recently took it a big step further, declaring 'Guardians of the Galaxy' to be the best Marvel movie yet. Yep, even the ones that he's not in.
For awhile there, it looked like 'Star Wars: Episode 7' was in trouble. Harrison Ford had broken his leg in a freak Millennium Falcon accident and there were rumors that the production was going to be shut down for weeks! Months! Forever!!! And then Harrison Ford got better and the only real damage to the schedule was a two-week break where everyone made ice bucket challenge videos and refused to answer questions to prying reporters on red carpets.
And now, 'Star Wars: Episode 7' has officially resumed filming.
The original "based on a true story" horror story, 'The Amityville Horror,' inspired countless adaptations, sequels, prequels and remakes, including the 2005 version starring Ryan Reynolds. Now, after nearly a decade of silence, the franchise is back with the arrival of the 'Amityville: The Awakening' trailer, which moves Jennifer Jason Leigh and a handful of children into that evil haunted house.
You can tell the summer movie season is coming to an end because the weekend box office has stopped being exciting and has starting becoming sad and weird. The past two weeks have seen several major movies bomb, but nothing could have prepared us for 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.'
Warner Bros. released the full-length 'Annabelle' trailer, which does not hide the origins of its titular demonic doll. Yes, this is the same doll that left a huge impression on audiences in 'The Conjuring,' and, yes, we're going to get to see exactly how this creepy thing came into being. Considering that 'The Conjuring' is one of the most successful and acclaimed horror movies of all time, this is probably a smart angle to take.
'Star Wars: Episode 7' is deep into filming, but everything we know can fit into one small box. Everything else is conjecture, speculation and rumor, educated guesses from people in-the-know and nonsense from fans with grand imaginations. We're not sure where this latest news falls yet, so we're just going to leave it here and let you be the judge. Is this the new 'Star Wars: Episode 7' Stormtroopers design?
The new 'Best of Me' trailer has one goal: to fill whatever room you're in with dust and get your eyes watering. It just wants to give you a taste of the buckets you'll cry during the actual movie, which looks specifically constructed to tug at your heart strings so hard that they snap like cheap twine. Yes, this is another movie based on a Nicholas Sparks novel, and like all Nicholas Sparks movies, it is in the business of invoking warm, salty tears.
Although the trailer doesn't sell any of the plot of 'Mortdecai,' it does sell Johnny Depp's newest weird character: a snobby art dealer who appears debonair but is actually a bit of a bumbling oaf. Depp doesn't wear any silly hats this time around, but he does have a silly mustache and a wacky accent, so everything balances out in the end.
