Insert your own "when it rains, it pours" joke right here. Darren Aronofsky's instantly controversial biblical epic 'Noah' overcame mixed buzz to win the box office this weekend, catering to both religious audiences and film buffs who like weird movies from unique, picky directors.
But all was not well for everyone -- the latest film from a certain Hollywood action legend got washed away in 'Noah''s success.
Few characters have the pop culture clout of Batman, who has spent the better part of a century dominating comic books, the better part of a generation dominating movies, and the better part of a decade dominating video games. To geeks and businessmen alike, he's kind of a big, huge, massive deal. Now, Warner Bros. and DC Comics plan to celebrate the 75th anniversary of their biggest cash cow with a year-long celebration, announcing all kinds of special events and releases to commemorate the creation of Bruce Wayne and his alter ego.
If the main goal of 'Divergent' was to snag a large portion of the audience for 'The Hunger Games,' it looks like it succeeded.
Although it didn't reach the absurd heights of Katniss' two movies, Shailene Woodley's dystopian adventure effortlessly nabbed the No. 1 spot and, perhaps, announced the arrival of a new big franchise.
After seven years of waiting, no one knew if a sequel to '300' would do the business of its predecessor. And now we have a definitive answer: yes. '300: Rise of an Empire' effortlessly took the number one spot at the box office, proving that America still loves shirtless Greeks murdering each other in slow motion.
We're not entirely sure why Steven Spielberg, arguably the most famous and beloved filmmaker of all time, is currently looking into remaking 'West Side Story' as his next project, but who are we to argue with The Beard?
The world is a little more terrifying than usual these days. With Russian forces occupying Ukraine's Crimean peninsula, the internet has already started throwing around references to World War III. Thankfully, 'SNL' is here to take something that has us terrified and make us laugh instead. The show's solution? Bring in Liam Neeson.
This weekend saw a brutal showdown between Liam Neeson, the current god of action cinema, and Jesus Christ, the current god of millions of human beings.
Since the box office is a "two may enter, but only one may leave" type showdown, the victory ultimately went to Neeson and 'Non-Stop,' which edged out the son of God and his movie, uh, 'Son of God' to win the weekend.
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.
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.
