When you're set to watch a teaser trailer, there's the strong possibility that you will be shown little to nothing on the movie that it's advertising. There isn't anything wrong with that, other than it's a cheap ploy to try and wrangle over more potential audience members into keeping interest over said movie. Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom is yet another one of...

Some directors when given a mega-budget seem to make films that grow increasingly incomprehensible and ridiculous; others (like, say, Shane Black with Iron Man 3, Sam Mendes with Skyfall, or Christopher Nolan with The Dark Knight and Inception), can work wonders within the blockbuster wheelhouse.  And the WonderCon trailer for the upcoming...

While many have been on the fence with some of the more recent works of visually enticing filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, he knows how to handle his monsters. All you have to do is look at movies like Hellboy and Pan's Labyrinth as examples.

Right now a couple of popular British characters may be going through a transitional period within the next couple of years. There's been chatter of the 12th Doctor in Doctor Who being played by a woman, and the James Bond franchise may face the same treatment. No, they're not going to change James Bond into a woman (that'd be just plain weird) but Idris Elba may be...

One can walk a very fine line between having a movie be a prequel or it's own original piece. At the same time, if you're watching a movie you don't want to be constantly guessing over whether or not it has any connection to the filmmaker's previous flicks.
