Infographic: 50 years of James Bond

This month marks the 50th anniversary since the release of Dr. No, the first James Bond movie. During the past five decades we've seen 25 James Bond movies released, two of which are considered outside of the canon that most Bond fans follow, those being the 1967 comedy version of Casino Royale and the 1983 Sean Connery picture Never Say Never Again. And with current Bond actor Daniel Craig appearing in the most recent Bond film (Skyfall), there's been renewed interest in the British secret agent and his government issued license to kill.

Arnold Schwarzenegger agrees to make third Conan movie

While I didn't see this one coming, the signs were pointing in that direction: Arnold Schwarzenegger will portray his first iconic movie hero role again, that of Conan the barbarian, in a new movie titled The Legend of Conan. This is a done deal and Universal Pictures, the company who now has the rights to release Conan movies, wants this new picture out in the summer of 2014.

Review: Cloud Atlas

Cloud Atlas is a movie that comes along infrequently, a product of the commercial Hollywood system but done with a definite art house style approach to its creation. Clocking in at nearly three hours long, this ambitious movie tries to tell multiple stories that weave across a tapestry of five hundred years of human history, from the 19th century to the 24th. Throughout all of the eras the same ensemble of actors return to play different characters in the different time periods, sometimes swapping roles between hero and villain, black or white or Asian, and even male or female.

Sooooo...

All that talk from Robert Downey Jr., director Shane Black and Marvel prez/producer Kevin Feige about Tony Stark having everything stripped away in IM3 looks to be legit.

Warner Bros. wins victory in Superman lawsuit

A federal Californian judge has ruled that movie studio Warner Bros. has ownership in the one-half of Superman property rights created by Joe Shuster. The ruling comes as the studio is well into post-production on its next Superman film, Man of Steel, and as a different lawsuit brought on by the other Superman co-creator heirs (Jerry Siegel) winds its own way through the courts.

With season three premiere, The Walking Dead has its highest ratings ever

The Walking Dead returned last night for its third season premiere and audiences feasted upon it.

AMC issued an announcement about how big the audience was for the premiere episode and you could practically see the smiles on the programming execs faces between the lines. It turns out that the season three Walking Dead episode attracted 10.9 million viewers, which works out to a 7.4 household rating.

Those 10.9 million viewers were the show's biggest audience ever, surpassing the second season's premiere episode by more than 50%.

Marvel's Ant-Man movie comes out in 2015

Marvel Studios has spent some coin developing a live-action Ant-Man movie, slated to be directed by Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Shaun of the Dead). Concept test footage showing scientist Scott Lang walking around in ant-sized form was shown to a packed house at this year's San Diego Comic Con, and it got a favorable reaction from the crowd.

Taken 2 beats the box office again

For the second weekend in a row Taken 2 is the #1 movie at the box office. With a modest drop of 54% and $22.5 million dollars in new ticket sales, Taken 2's total North American gross now stands at $86.7 million dollars.

Compared with the first Taken, Taken 2 is still $35 million bucks away from besting the first movie's B.O. However, the film's international grosses have been higher than with the first Taken, and as such it' already into the black.

Ben Affleck has his new movie Argo open this weekend, and it did rather well. Argo opened with $20.1m and as such falls neatly into spot #2.

A look at the unused Jurassic Park 4 dino-human hybrids

It hasn't been a secret that Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment have been trying to make a Jurassic Park 4. Nor is it a secret that way back in 2005 they were tinkering around with a JP4 story that would have seen cloned dinosaurs created with a mixture of human DNA, thus giving us terrifying new creatures that were part dinosaur and part human.

Are Emily Blunt and Ruth Wilson being scouted for Ms. Marvel in The Avengers 2?

It's no secret that Marvel Studios and director Joss Whedon are hard at work planning out the storyline for what happens in The Avengers 2. May 2015 seems like it's far away right now but when you break it down Whedon and his crew only have 12 or so months to iron out the movie sequel's story, figure out how these characters integrate into all their own individual movie franchises and pick which new Marvel superheroes (and villains) will be included in Avengers 2.

And there's also a S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series to launch.

Liam Neeson takes the box office

Taken 2 is a hit. In its opening weekend the action-thriller sequel opened to an estimated $50 million dollars domestic. Compare that with the $24.7m that the first Taken movie grossed in its opening weekend back in 2009, and now the early results of Taken 2 look pretty damn good.
