Disney currently operates 12 theme park properties around the world, not counting water parks. In the early days of Disney California Adventure, before Cars Land and other elements of the 2012 redesign went into effect, the eighth of those 12 parks took flak for offering a tacky recreation of things …

The holidays are upon us, so whether you looking for film-related gift ideas or simply want to pick up some of the finest the year had to offer in the category for yourself, we have a gift guide for you. Including must-have subscriptions, the best from Criterion, Olive Films, and …

Venom, the movie that is definitely real and not an elaborate early April Fools’ hoax, will be based on some very real comic book storylines. Director Ruben Fleischer has the unenviable task of bringing the popular Spider-Man antihero to the big screen, sans Spider-Man. Thankfully, he has a plethora of Venom comic …

It turns out that “creative consultant” is little more than a title, as George Lucas and Star Wars: The Last Jedi star Mark Hamill have learned.

Most recently, they penned the screenplay for The Disaster Artist, a film adaptation of actor Greg Sestero’s …

Ready Player One will soon hit the big screens, but the adventure may soon make its way back to where it all started: the bookshelves. Ernest Cline‘s sci-fi novel that serves as the inspiration for Steven Spielberg’s upcoming movie will soon receive a sequel. And Ready Player One already has a perfect sequel name …

Ahead of a ceremony on January 7 the nominations for the the 75th Golden Globe Awards were announced this morning.
