There’s an ongoing debate as to whether or not The Nightmare Before Christmas is a Halloween movie or Christmas movie. For some reason, those people just can’t accept that it can actually be both. If you regard The Nightmare Before Christmas as a Halloween movie, then now is the time for you to revisit the stop-motion animated classic directed by Henry Selick and produced by Tim Burton. But if you regard it as a Christmas movie, you’re just going to have to deal with what’s about to happen.
The argument continues in the Honest Trailer for this double holiday classic directed by Henry Selick and produced by Tim Burton, but they at least take the time to parody one of the songs in the movie to work through the dichotomy of the flick. In addition, they have a great musical riff about the obsession that goth kids and Hot Topic have with this movie.

Much remains mysterious about the characters of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but today we have a bit more insight to share on one of the most intriguing new figures: Orson Krennic, the villainous Imperial officer played by Ben Mendelsohn.
We already know he’s got a complicated history with Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelsen) and an uncanny ability to keep that sweet space cape a pristine, blinding white. But how, exactly, does he fit in with the rest of the Empire? Newly released details shine a light on his relationship to other, more familiar Imperial fixtures like Grand Moff Tarkin and, yes, Darth Vader himself.

We’ve already had two movies with a score provided by Michael Giacchino this year, Disney’s animated hit Zootopia and the sequel Star Trek Beyond. But there are still two more movies with his musical talents involved on the way. One will arrive in about a week and a half with Doctor Strange, and we’ve already heard one track from the trippy soundtrack. But easily the most anticipated work from the composer will be for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
The Oscar-winning composer recently had a quick interview to discuss his work on the Rogue One score, a job that he describes as “a little stressful” but “a lot of fun” as the December release date gets closer. Find out what else he had to say about the gig after the jump. Read More »
Doctor Strange comes out in less than two weeks now, but the early buzz is already remarkably high for director Scott Derrickson‘s Marvel movie. Critics are embracing the origin story, which shares a few things in common with the likes of Batman Begins, Captain America: The First Avenger, and Iron Man. Doctor Strange is an exceptional origin story where the setup is as entertaining as the setpieces, but with Stephen Strange’s origin story now told, what’s next for the character?
Below, read what Scott Derrickson said about a Doctor Strange sequel.

In March, Disney announced that Steven Spielberg would be returning to direct Harrison Ford in a new Indiana Jones movie. While most of the internet was skeptical and cynical about the announcement, I was hopeful that Indiana Jones 5 could be a return to form for the beloved franchise. One of the reasons I cited was that George Lucas is not involved in this new film. Director Steven Spielberg later commented that Lucas would be involved as an executive producer on the project, stating “I would never make an Indiana Jones film without George Lucas. That’d be insane.” This comment has worried a lot of people, as Lucas was widely blamed for the most horrible aspects of the last installment, Indiana Jones and the Kindom of the Crystal Skull.
But don’t worry, my initial report seems to be confirmed by new comments from Indiana Jones 5 screenwriter David Koepp. Find out what he says about George Lucas Indiana Jones 5 involvement, after the jump.

From a purely statistical perspective, chances are strong that Dwayne Johnson is better looking than you, more charming than you, and harder working than you. It’s true of me and it’s probably true of you. Sorry, but this is reality we’re dealing with here. But there is one lingering question that Disney’s upcoming film Moana looks to answer: can Dwayne Johnson carry a tune more effectively than you? Thanks to a new clip from the film, we can start to answer that question.

Last week brought the first reactions to Doctor Strange after press saw the movie before it hits international markets this coming week. Now the embargo has lifted on full reviews of Marvel’s latest addition to their cinematic universe, providing us with a much more detailed reception from critics.
The full Doctor Strange reviews paint a promising picture full of rich performances, dazzling visuals and some of the best action we’ve ever seen. However, these reviews also dive deeper into the movie’s shortcomings, mainly coming from treading familiar territory as another origin story and putting forth a lead character whose defining characteristics might be a little to close to the Marvel franchise that started this whole universe with Iron Man. But thankfully, Benedict Cumberbatch and director Scott Derrickson keep that from being too frustrating.
Check out some highlights from the Doctor Strange reviews after the jump. Read More »
