‘SNL’ Profiles the Awkward Making of ’12 Years a Slave’

When you make a movie as emotionally draining and difficult to watch as '12 Years a Slave,' you're bound to make the vast majority of the people watching uncomfortable. After all, if people aren't upset by a film that tracks a man being dehumanized and treated as property, you're obviously doing something wrong. But if a film is that hard to watch, what was it like to make? Thankfully, 'SNL' is here to show us all of the nitty gritty details.

Could John Travolta Play a Future Bond Villain?

It's been a rough decade for John Travolta, and his self-destructive slide looks to continue now that he's signed on to voice the lead character in a Gummy Bears movie. For that reason, we have a hard time believing that he's spoken to the James Bond franchise producers about playing a villain in a future film, but according to a recent interview, he claims that such meetings have occurred and have been fruitful.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘RoboCop’ Taken Down by ‘The Lego Movie’ and ‘About Last Night’

When 'RoboCop' got pushed from an August 2013 release date to February, everyone assumed it would open stronger when far away from the busy summer months.

If this was the better of the two options, then imagine how poorly it would have opened in summer. The remake of the 1987 classic is definitely not a disaster, but it most certainly under-performed.

Jose Padilha's update on the tale of a cyborg cop out for revenge has made $26 million since its Wednesday release, with $21 million coming over the weekend. That's not awful, but it's not exactly strong for a movie with a foundation dating to 1987.

Philip Seymour Hoffman Will Be Digitally Recreated For His Final ‘Hunger Games’ Scene

Philip Seymour Hoffman's tragic death occurred while he was nearing the end of his work on the two-part 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay' movies, and while he only had seven days of filming left, those days included at least one key scene. We initially thought that these final scenes would be rewritten to exclude the character of Plutarch Heavensbee, but according to the NY Post, the filmmakers are planning to recreate the late actor with special effects to keep his presence intact.

Super Bowl Commercials: Radio Shack Resurrects Your Favorite ’80s Characters [Video]

Considering how Radio Shack has been out of the limelight for the past decade or so, it's amusing to see that the company has some level of self-awareness. The new Radio Shack 2014 Super Bowl ad is chock full of self deprecating humor and, in a crazy little turn, most of it comes courtesy of '80s film and TV characters.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Ride Along’ Laps ‘That Awkward Moment’ and ‘Labor Day’

Unless you had a personal stake in a film being released this weekend, movies were far from the most important thing happening to you these past couple of days. You can blame the weekend's mostly anemic box office on one thing: the Super Bowl. Everyone spent their money buying snacks and preparing their parties and not going to see 'That Awkward Moment' and 'Labor Day,' both of which opened soft.
