Published by

Like any year, 2013 had a number of big stinkers. Films that could have been contenders, but left us slightly wanting -- and sometimes offended that the film got made. It seems the biggest offenders are often the over-hyped summer movies (though sometimes it was would-be Oscar pictures as well) that promise so much and deliver so little. So here's our list of the worst and most disappointing...

'World War Z' Sequel In Need Of A Director

Published by

World War Z
World War Z was a movie riddled with problems, delays and, for a minute there, the slight possibility that it would make nearly nothing in the box office. The film miraculously made back it's money and is leaning towards a sequel, but that's where the latest problem comes in. If Marc Forster isn't going to return to the director's chair, who would take the...

Editorial: Why I Redbox

This summer has seen a slew of movies that cost over $100 Million dollars hit theaters (some over $200 Million, some possibly near $300 Million), and yet this is the first summer I've noticed that I'm okay with totally skipping a number of the biggest films of the year. This is likely a feeling that's been building for a while, but now it's gotten that much worse. It's not that I won't catch...

It's about that time in the summer where audiences are starting to feel pummeled. At a certain point all of these tentpole movies filled with superhero action, CGI violence and maybe a movie star or two gets to be a bit much. So it's no surprise that audiences went for Monsters University and The Heat over White House...

  Monsters University may have topped the box office, but the winner this weekend is everyone, as the top four films did over $200 Million. World War Z smashed past expectations, while Man of Steel sank quickly, even as it passed $200 Million domestically. It was a big weekend for a non-holiday.

Horror is a genre that is often misunderstood -- much like some of the monsters in those films. Normally we think that horror movies are filled with a bunch of no-name actors, but iIn some instances a couple of actors got their start in horror films, or at one point in their career decided they would go the horror route because something about that movie just tickled their fancy. In honor of...

Ever since the world got a taste of David Lowery's Ain't Them Bodies Saints, he's become a director to watch.

IFC is releasing his film in August, so it was about time that we got an official trailer, which you can see below. Also, some wonderful human being decided to put...

Brad Pitt's 'World War Z': Apparently, It Doesn't Suck

Published by

World War Z
A megabudget sci-fi film without an ending.  A giant movie star floundering in an out of control production.  A director who has reportedly lost control of the project.  All told, it sounds as if the Brad Pitt-starring, Marc Forster-directed World War Z reportedly had all the makings of another bomb of Waterworld proportions.  And then...

'World War Z' Launches Viral Ad Campaign

Published by

World War Z
The term "viral video" is close to meaningless as studios and companies have latched on to the idea. They don't spread like keyboard cat, with interested parties passing them videos amongst themselves, they spread because a studio launches them into the world and tell everyone about it. World War Z is the latest movie to embrace this craze by suggesting that crisis in...

'World War Z' Trailer: Brad Pitt Fights Zombies

Published by

World War Z
One of the summer's biggest question marks is Marc Forster's World War Z, which Paramount delayed from the end of 2012, into June 2013 and hired new writers to punch up/totally re-write the ending. Did they have enough good stuff to make all those reshoots (supposedly there were more recently) worth it? Perhaps. Check out the new trailer that plays up the global...

Published by

World War Z
There’s not much more that we can say about the Super Bowl TV spot for Marc Forster's upcoming zombie apocalypse film World War Z than we already noted in the headline—the 30 second clip basically crams in some loud Inception orchestral bleats, some heavy CGI, and Brad Pitt’s remarkably goofy haircut before abruptly ending so that we...

After months and months of bad press—director Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace) has lost control of the production, massive budget and scheduling overruns, rewrite after rewrite, extensive alterations from Max Brooks’ novel, etc.—World War Z finally got a 30 second preview earlier this week, which didn’t tell us much...
