Every year, when the Oscar nominations are announced, a considerable amount of time is spent debating who was snubbed. But for every film that was expecting to get nominated and didn't, there's a film that no one was expecting to get nominated and did. This is the story of those films. The movies you'll look back on and wonder exactly how the heck it ever got nominated for an Oscar.
We got our look at one half of 'Batman vs. Superman' back in May when director Zack Snyder tweeted the first look at Ben Affleck as Batman. Today, we get our first look at the other half of that equation with our first official look at the new Superman.
Netflix announced on Monday some good news for subscribers: they'll be actively working to improve the quality of their movie and TV choices as well as improving their streaming service. The bad news? You'll be paying for it.
Moviefone was made famous in the early '90s as a way for people to get movie showtimes over the phone, and was later cemented as a pop culture landmark as the focus of a classic 'Seinfeld' episode (wherein Kramer's phone number is one digit away from the Moviefone number, so he begins to adopt the role of Mr. Moviefone with hilarious results), but as of today, Moviefone is no more. Aol announced that it is shutting down the 777-FILM number and the Moviefone service, prompting many people to wonder aloud, Moviefone was still around?
Last night, Jimmy Fallon officially ushered in a new era of 'The Tonight Show' and, besides a move to New York City, already made the show his own. Can you imagine Jay Leno ever doing The Humpty Dance in a "The Evolution of Hip-Hop Dancing"?
Perhaps all work and no play really does make Jack a dull boy.
3-time Oscar-winning actor Jack Nicholson has quietly retired from acting according to a new report citing sources close to the 76-year-old actor. The actor reportedly suffering from memory loss and has no further plans to appear in any more movies.
After 'The Lone Ranger' opened to poor reviews and disappointing box office, Johnny Depp was criticized for his recent acting choices. From 'Pirates of the Caribbean 4' to 'Dark Shadows,' many accused Depp of going through the motions, all-too-happy to cash his paycheck to star in whatever Disney or Tim Burton was asking him to star in, regardless of the quality.
In a related story, Johnny Depp is in final negotiations to return as The Mad Hatter in Disney's 'Alice in Wonderland 2.'
'Fast Five' attempted - and quite successfully I might add - a reboot of sorts for the entire 'Fast and Furious' franchise, turning a series of movies about car racing into one exciting heist film. It was big and brash and sweaty and a complete success. So where do you go from there? 'Fast and Furious 6' attempts to answer that question by adding an -er suffix to all those adjectives above. Bigger, brasher, sweatier.
'Fast and Furious 6' is like 'Fast Five' on nitrous - director Justin Lin hits that proverbial turbo boost to go bigger, faster, stronger - and at times, that is a great thing. But when the NOS runs out, the drag race just turns into a drag.
Harrison Ford was a guest on last night's 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' to promote his movie '42' and naturally the discussion came around to 'Star Wars: Episode 7' and the future of the franchise. Ford tried to stay mum and say he couldn't talk about anything 'Star Wars,' but when he agreed to some questions from the audience, things got heated and Ford walked off the set. Watch video of the incident below.
When 'Captain America 2' announced the casting of Robert Redford in a critical role, most of us uttered some weird combination of "wow" and "whoa" because, let's admit it, Robert Redford doesn't need to do a superhero movie. He's in that well-earned stage of his career where he can just do whatever he wants, not screw up his legacy and ride off into the sunset as a Hollywood legend. So why did he agree to star in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier?'
