From August 2014 until January 2015, Guardians of the Galaxy was the highest grossing domestic film of 2014. In November 2014, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 was released and by late January 2015, it overtook the Marvel film. Then, in December 2014, Warner Bros. opened American Sniper. The first few weekends were above average for limited release numbers but then it opened wide and grossed a staggering $93 million over three days. Since then Clint Eastwood’s film has remained right near the top of the box office every single week. This weekend, it finally surpassed The Hunger Games, making American Sniper the highest grossing domestic film of 2014. Read More »

The battle between DC and Marvel is eternal. First it was in the comic shop, then it was on the Internet and most recently, it’s on the big screen. In 2016, it’s really going to explode when the DC movie universe expands with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Marvel starts Phase Three of their cinematic universe, with Captain America: Civil War.
Now, it seems, the battlefields are being drawn in the board rooms as well. In a new interview, the Warner Bros. chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujihara differentiated between the Marvel and DC brands by saying “The worlds of DC are very different. They’re steeped in realism, and they’re a little bit edgier than Marvel’s movies.” Oh snap. Read the DC vs Marvel movie quote below. Read More »

Here’s one good argument for getting past racial stereotypes: Make the wrong assumptions, and you could find yourself getting stabbed or sucking a guy off as ill-advised “prison training” from some guy who’s never received so much as a parking ticket.
That’s the premise of Get Hard, the new comedy starring Will Ferrell as a hedge fund manager sentenced to a maximum security prison. In desperation, he seeks help from the first black guy he sees — an upstanding small business owner played by Kevin Hart. Watch the Get Hard red-band trailer after the jump.

In 2014, Jared Leto won an Oscar for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club. In 2015, that meant two things. He could do any role he wanted and he had to appear at awards shows to present. We know the role he chose, Joker in David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad, and we all saw the actor at the Oscars, sporting long, flowing locks and full beard. He looked decidedly un-like the Joker.
Well, the first step in Jared Leto’s physical transformation into the Clown Prince of Gotham City has begun. Plus Ayer described the character using one kind of surprising word. Below, check out the Jared Leto Joker preparation.
UPDATE: See a second photo from the film’s director too.

Last week’s late-night reveal of Jason Momoa as Aquaman was a shock to many people, including the actor himself. In a new interview, the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice co-star admits that he didn’t think director Zack Snyder was going to reveal his in-costume photo so soon and didn’t find out until right before it went up.
Momoa also discussed his excitement at playing the role and danced around questions about when we’d actually see the character, how much he’s shot, and if he’d already been teased in Man of Steel. Read the latest Jason Momoa Aquaman quotes below. Read More »
Six years ago, news of a Tomb Raider movie reboot first hit the web. It was being developed by GK Films as an origin story drawing inspiration from Rise of the Planet of the Apes. MGM then came on board and there a script was even commissioned. But we haven’t heard anything since 2013.
Now there’s the first significant update in two years. Warner Bros. has come on board to distribute the film, which will be written by Evan Daugherty, the writer of Snow White and the Huntsman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Divergent and the upcoming G.I. Joe 3. Read more about the Tomb Raider movie reboot below. Read More »
