‘The Conjuring 2′ Set To Scare in June 2016

A couple months ago, we reported that The Conjuring 2 was moving to an undisclosed time in 2016 from an Oct. 25, 2015 release date. The reasoning behind that shift was a lawsuit holding up the production and director James Wan remaining one of the busiest people working in Hollywood. After finishing up on Furious 7, Wan seems to be shifting his focus directly back to the sequel to his 2013 horror mega-hit. Now, we’re getting news from Deadline that The Conjuring 2 has officially moved to June 10, 2016. No official casting news has been released but Patrick …

Doctor Doom’s Origin Story In The Upcoming ‘Fantastic Four’ Film May Disappoint

Toby Kebbell, character actor from England who has starred in films like RocknRolla and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, has finally revealed some details about his version of Marvel villain Doctor Doom in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot releasing on August 7 of 2015. Here’s what Kebbell had to say about his character in an interview with Collider:

“He’s Victor Domashev, not Victor Von Doom in our story. And I’m sure I’ll be sent to jail for telling you that. The Doom in ours—I’m a programmer. Very anti-social programmer. And on blogging sites I’m ‘Doom.’”

Yes, you …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Big Hero 6′ Is A Thrilling And Hilarious Journey For All Ages

Film: Big Hero 6
Starring: Ryan Potter, Scott Adsit
Directed by: Don Hall, Chris Williams

Big Hero 6 may be the first comic book adaptation to succeed — because it offers a story unlike anything found in the original source material.

You do not need to know that Disney’s Big Hero 6 is adapted from a relatively unknown Marvel comic book property. In fact, knowing too much about the original series may change your opinion of the animated adaptation because it’s almost nothing like the comics that inspired the characters now being promoted all over the world. This is not …

Get Ready To Feel Again – ‘Toy Story 4′ Has Been Announced

It’s true. The increasingly sequel-happy Pixar (despite what Pixar president Ed Catmull said) are bringing back our favorite gang of anthropomorphic toys. It isn’t as another animated short or straight-to-DVD release, either – I see you, Toy Story of TERROR! and Toy Story That Time Forgot. This is Toy Story 4.

Sure, we’d heard rumors of this sequel last year. Yes, a sequel to a movie that made one billion dollars at the box office and amassed five Oscar nominations (Toy Story 3) is more inevitability than pleasant surprise. Now we have confirmation, though, along …
