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.Add a comment (0)

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%.Add a comment (0)

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.Add a comment (2)

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.Add a comment (0)

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.Add a comment (0)

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.Add a comment (2)

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.Add a comment (0)

When a photograph showing former Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe shows up with the actor sprouting a pair of devil-like horns on the top of his brow, a sensationalistic headline can't be very far behind.Add a comment (0)

After the gamble two years ago to inject new blood into the Academy Awards show failed to materialize in critical or commercial success, the producers of the event have decided to place their bet on someone edgier. It turns out that individual is Seth MacFarlane, the creator of Fox's Family Guy cartoon series as well as American Dad and The Cleveland Show. Let's also not forget that MacFarlane's first foray into motion pictures, Universal's Ted movie, made over $200 million dollars at the box office this past summer.Add a comment (2)
