There are a lot of moving parts to Disney acquiring Fox, but there is only one part that really matters: The Marvel characters imprisoned over there. The X-Men and Fantastic Four have been under Fox’s control for some time now, But thanks to the impending acquisition of 21st Century Fox by Disney, that is about to… read more


This debate has just gotten silly at this point. Yes. Die Hard takes place at Christmas. That does not make it a Christmas movie. If we go by that thinking, is every movie that takes place around that time now qualify? Gremlins? Batman Returns? Lethal Weapon? The list goes on and on. If you all… read more

It seems that the king of the seven seas may also be the kind of the box office. Aquaman swam his way to the top of the box office easily this weekend with $67.4M. The movie has been out overseas for some time now so the global total already sits at $482.8M. Second place went… read more

After months of rumors, it does seem that Disney and Johnny Depp will be parting ways when it comes to the Pirates of the Caribbean films. The Hollywood Reporter did a wide-ranging interview with Sean Bailey, Disney’s head of films, and nestled in there was an answer to a looming question: Would Johnny Depp play… read more


First, the Hellboy trailer leaves me cold, and then Men in Black International comes along to just pile on.

What I would say, though, is that they visually look amazing. del Toro is a master of creating immersive, lived in looking worlds. This… read more

A new Godzilla: King of the Monsters trailer has been released and… so much rain! I am a long time fan of kaiju movies. I understand we have left behind the days of men in rubber suits stomping through miniature sets. CGI has given filmmakers so much more freedom in size, scale, and realism, but… read more

The trailer for Avengers: Endgame has arrived and all I can say is… everyone has a sad. Marvel dropped the Avengers: Endgame trailer without warning on Friday, and at least it brought the speculation about the film’s title to an end. Of course, it fired up a lot of other speculation. Of course the big… read more
