Ant-Man-Comic-Con_612x380

Last weekend, the Paul Rudd led Ant-Man flick took home $58 million, shy of parent company Disney’s estimates of $60-65 million.  This was enough to give it the number one slot that weekend,, but it also gives the insect-inspired hero film the dubious honor of having the second worst opening of any of the MCU movies, beating out […]

If Fox had a house motto, it would be: “we do not sow. Now let us spit on your Quicksilver, Marvel.” Bryan Singer loves a few things.  Director’s Cuts, long walks on the beach, and movies centered around Time Travel, to name a few.  Now we can add crossovers to that list as well.  In an […]

So, we all know that Marvel didn’t present anything in Hall H during Comic-Con. Was it because they didn’t have anything to show, just like Sony and Paramount?

BBC Culture did something pretty fun today, as they released their list of the 100 Greatest American Films, as determined by a poll of 62 international film critics. How did they define what made an “American film”? If it got its funding from an American source, it was eligible to be selected. Here’s the full, […]

After the incredible Inside Out (in the running for my favorite film of the year so far), I’ve become re-energized regarding Pixar’s output, which I was worried might not ever happen after a few years of, let’s just say, not their best work. Their second offering this year, The Good Dinosaur, opens on November 25th […]

After a painfully long production process, Marvel’s smallest big-screen hero has finally arrived, and according to studio estimates (which could see some adjustment by Monday morning) Ant-Man is looking at about a $58 million domestic haul. For what it’s worth, that’s the second lowest debut for a Marvel Studios picture, just shy of 2008’s The […]

Since they weren’t at Comic-Con, most of the media attention has not been focused on Ant-Man, Marvel’s next entry in their Marvel Cinematic Universe snowball, which shows no sign of stopping, and which becomes ever more complex and unfathomable with each movie.  (Why do I suspect that ALL of the Phase Three heroes will become […]

Every year, people wonder about Hall H, the largest panel room at Comic-Con International in San Diego. With 6000+ seats, it’s the Hajarul Aswad of the Nerd hajj.
