Batman v Captain America: Stan Lee Picks Who’d Win in a Fight

1 hour ago

Fantasizing who would win in a one-on-one match between superheroes has transformed from a favorite playground pastime among comic book-loving kids to a billion dollar enterprise thanks to films like “Batman v Superman” and “Captain America: Civil War.” So it’s not surprising that at his sit-down interview at the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo, comics legend Stan Lee was asked who would win in a fight between Batman and Captain America. There are certainly parallels between the two crimefighters. Both men are endowed with incredible strength — Cap’s comes from super soldier serum while Batman’s comes from a lifetime of training. »

Chris Wallace Grills Budget Director About Holding Health Care ‘Hostage’ To Fund Border Wall (Video)

1 hour ago

Chris Wallace and Director of the Office of Management and Budget Mick Mulvaney sparred in a war of words on Fox News Sunday, with the host asking if the Trump Administration is holding health care “hostage” to fund the building of a border wall. “The president has said there are a number of items he’d like to see in his government funding bill. Which are so important that he’s willing to see the government shut down if he doesn’t get them?” Wallace asked.

Hollywood’s Highest Paid Executives: Who Made Bank, Who Sank in 2016

1 hour ago

Philippe Dauman, we’ve got good news and bad news: Last year, the then-Viacom exec made the most money of his life: $93 million, to be exact. These days, Dauman’s probably spending some of that on the golf course. Oh, and he has no good business reason left to just play nine holes. Of course, Dauman’s golden parachute had nothing on DreamWorks Animation boss Jeffrey Katzenberg’s more than $400 million windfall from the sale of his studio to Comcast’s NBCUniversal. Aside from that cash-out on his equity in Dwa, Katzenberg pocketed $44.5 million in payments relating to the company’s change of. »

Dwayne Johnson Salutes Fifth-Grader Who Compares ‘The’ Rock With ‘A’ Rock

3 hours ago

Names can be deceiving, as evidenced by a fifth-grade science student who compared “a rock” to “The Rock.” “One of the fifth-graders I work with made this in his science class. It wasn’t even for a grade,” Reddit user Marley_S said of a chart one her students made. The poster, complete with photos of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson from his WWE days and a photo of a giant, you guessed it, rock, are separate by an equal sign. Johnson got a kick out of it, tweeting: “Very cool and creative 5th grader who will become a future science leader. »

14 Times Video Games Continued the Stories of Movies (Photos)

4 hours ago

Video games based on movies have a long history of being terrible. But there are a few licensed games that don’t just ride the coattails of successful films, they actually expand and add to them. Here are 12 video games that picked up the torches for stories started on film. “The Thing” (1982) John Carpenter’s 1982 horror movie finds a group of scientists trapped in an Antarctic research facility with an alien threat that takes over and imitates them. The film ends with awesome ambiguity: MacReady (Kurt Russell) and Childs (Keith David) staring each other down, neither sure if the other is. »

‘Free Fire’ Misfires at Loaded Indie Box Office

4 hours ago

A24 has enjoyed immense success with small-budgeted, limited release films like “Moonlight,” but the studio took a different approach this weekend with Ben Wheatley’s shoot-em-up “Free Fire,” opening the film in a targeted release of 1,070 screens. Unfortunately for A24, the results have not been what they were hoping for. The film — which features Martin Scorsese as executive producer and stars Brie Larson, Armie Hammer and Sharlto Copley as a group of black market arms dealers who whip out their guns when a sale goes south — got decent reviews with a 66 percent Rotten Tomatoes rating. But “Free Fire” »

‘The Trip to Spain’ Review: Steve Coogan and Rob Bryden Impersonate Caine Mainly on the Plain

17 hours ago

The Trip to Spain” is the third movie in a series starring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon as versions of themselves. (It has also played as an expanded group of episodes on television.) In their first film from 2010, “The Trip,” they toured restaurants in Northern England and did many impressions of actors, most notably dueling impersonations of Michael Caine so stingingly accurate that it will probably be impossible to watch Caine ever again without thinking of Coogan and Brydon and their send-up of him. They took “The Trip to Italy” in 2014 and reprised their Caine impersonations amid many »

‘The Lovers’ Review: Debra Winger and Tracy Letts Rekindle Their Marital Spark

17 hours ago

The Lovers” is that rare thing: a serious romantic comedy with farcical elements that never puts a foot wrong. Writer-director Azazel Jacobs (“Terri”) seems to know that there is no margin for error with this kind of project, and so he plans out his comedic scenes with both precision and sophistication. He takes a real chance by allowing musician Mandy Hoffman to create the kind of full-blown and near-constant score with violins that hasn’t been heard much since at least the early 1990s, and this music really buoys the scenes up and makes them sparkle. Since “The Lovers” is a comedy of. »

‘Handmaid’s Tale’ Tribeca Panel Turns ‘Bizarre’ as Cast Downplays Feminist Themes

22 hours ago

A promotional stop at the Tribeca Film Festival inspired criticism for the cast and filmmakers of Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale.” Based on a seminal 1985 novel by Margaret Atwood, “The Handmaid’s Tale” centers around  a servant in the household of a high-ranking official in a totalitarian society called Gilead. Being one of the few remaining fertile women in Gilead, she is forced into sexual servitude. A majority of the stars in the dystopian series sidestepped or rejected the idea of feminist themes in the upcoming streaming series. The problem? It’s incredibly feminist — according to academics, critics and devotees of the 31-year-old property. »

Universal and Fox Play Chess With ‘American Made,’ ‘Kingsman’ Sequel Release Dates

22 April 2017 3:54 PM, PDT

Cat and mouse games are typically played within action films — but in the case of two high-octane projects from Universal Pictures and 20th Century Fox, it’s happening around them. On Thursday, Universal announced that Doug Liman and Tom Cruise’s “American Made” would jump back one week from a planned opening of Sept. 29, 2017 to Sept. 22. The decision cleared the film from the path of a sequel to Colin Firth’s 2015 surprise hit “Kingsman: The Secret Service.” On Saturday morning, however, Fox moved “Kingsman” from Sept. 29 to Sept. 22, once again placing it head-to-head with “American Made.” Also Read: Taron Egerton »
