The Crown season 2 review

The Crown returns to Netflix for season 2 today, bringing with it a whole new era of scandal, romance, and royal intrigue. While it may not be the most action-packed shows to grace the streaming platform, it is one of the best: an old fashioned, admirably episodic costume drama with superb performances, intricate direction, and enough simmering, bottled-up righteous fury to keep you hooked from beginning to end (give or take an episode or two).

Terminator Genisys box office

Before Terminator: Genisys hit theaters this past summer, Paramount Pictures was hopeful that the sequel, which also functions as a franchise reboot, would be a big hit for them. The studio even scheduled two sequels to arrive in 2017 and 2019. However, when the film only rounded up a disappointing $89 million, the future of the franchise remained uncertain.

But nearly a couple of months after being released in the United States, the film hit the big screen in China where it landed $27 million in a single day, making it the 4th best opening day ever for a Hollywood movie in China, just behind Furious 7, The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Transformers: Age of Extinction.

And since then, the Terminator Genisys box office overseas has only gotten bigger, with a total that just might be enough to get a sequel for fans who are still curious to see what happens in this new Terminator timeline. Read More »

Terminator sequels

Paramount Pictures and Skydance were really hoping that Terminator: Genisys would be a hit to reinvigorate the popular but struggling sci-fi franchise originally launched by James Cameron in 1984. But despite endorsement by the Avatar filmmaker, the flick hasn’t really impressed fans or critics, and with just $278 million at the worldwide box office so far (only just over $81 million of that from the US), it’s not nearly as successful as the studio hoped.

Way before the film even hit theaters, Paramount had set dates for two Terminator sequels to arrive on May 19th, 2017, and June 29th, 2018, with the assumption that they would be shot back-to-back. But now the future of the Terminator franchise is uncertain.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies photos

It’s been a long road for the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith‘s period romance/horror remix Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to get made, but the film will arrive in theaters next February.

So far we’ve only seen a brief glimpse of the Regency era zombie flick, but now some new photos have debuted online showing off the deadly corset-wearing ladies of the film and just a hint of the zombie mayhem that will invade the fancy setting. And if you’re expecting a campy mix of zombie action and Jane Austen’s classic, apparently that’s not the case.

Matt Smith Terminator

When Matt Smith was first cast in Terminator: Genisys, we had no idea who he was playing. Now that the film is in theaters, of course, we have the answer — but we’re left with a whole bunch of other questions about his mysterious character.
