What Does Han Solo Have To Do With 'The Lego Movie'?

7/8/2015 11:22pm EDT
Harrison Ford as Han Solo
Here we are on the eve of San Diego Comic Con International 2015, and there's already some big Star Wars news.

Unfortunately it's not news of a new trailer for The Force Awakens, which is less than six months away now (actually it's been confirmed that a new trailer for the most anticipated movie in forever won't be happening at SDCC), but new details on a third (yes, third!) stand-alone Star Wars Anthology film about Han Solo's backstory.

Chris Miller and Phil Lord, the filmmaking duo responsible for last year's smash The Lego Movie and buddy-cop comedies 21 and 22 Jump Street, will be t...

Oscars 2015: The 6 Best Moments Of The 2015 Academy Awards
Oscars 2015 will likely go down in history for several reasons. Not only was it one of the few times where the entire nominated group of actors and actresses were overwhelmingly white, it was also one of the most awkward of ceremonies. Several moments left viewers scratching their heads in disbelief, while others were laugh-out-loud funny. Still, it was difficult to narrow down to several of the best moments of the disjointed telecast. Here are the top six moments, honored for their weirdness, awkwardness and most of all, moments that will keep fans talking way into 2016!

Which Films & Stars Were Snubbed From This Year's Oscars?

Jennifer Aniston, Amy Adams & 'The Lego Movie' Top 2015 Oscar Sn
Following the announcement of this year's Oscar nominations on Thursday there were, much like every other year, a number of surprises and a handful of shocking snubs.

One such surprise is that only eight films have been nominated for Best Picture, wich can include up to 10 films each year, and despite to potential slots left in the category, films like "Foxcatcher," which landed two acting nominations and a Best Director nod for filmmaker Bennett Miller, and "Gone Girl" failed to make the cut.

Perhaps the biggest shock came when last February's "The Lego Movie" failed to land a Best Anima...

What 10 Movies Did We Like Best In 2014?

12/30/2014 11:00am EST
The Best Movies Of 2014
In 2014, visions of the future, ludicrous action, and showstopping identity crises dominated the multiplex. Here are the movies that utilized those elements and more to stand on the top of the year's cinematic output:

10. Enemy
By chance, a man discovers another man who looks exactly like him. They are both so profoundly affected by this coincidence that they cannot help but let their two lives bleed into each other. Jake Gyllenhaal, in a dual performance, continued his current winning streak in a confounding story about the fluidity of identity, with a giant spider lurking around throw...

The Greatest Movie Scenes Set In The Shower

shower scenes
There's really nothing like a good shower. Hot water, privacy, decorative soaps- if it was up to us, we'd spend all day in there.

Showers in movies, however, are a mixed bag. They can be hilarious (or, with the addition of a companion, romantic music and a little slow-motion, they can get pretty steamy) but they're also a hotbed of stabbings, spider attacks and all kinds of bloodshed.

The history of showers in movies is a long and illustrious one. So to honor cinema's many instances of people stripping down to nothing and being filmed in an extremely private bathroom setting, we've ranked...

The Best Movie Villains of 2014

10 Best Movie Villains of 2014
What makes the best villain? Is it the baddie we love to hate the most? Or one who's sort of sympathetic? A semi-pleasant baddie becomes so much more intense when he ditches the niceties and starts setting fire to schoolchildren.

Sadly, there's no clear-cut way to define the "best" villain. If it was, this article would just be that character's name, and maybe a gif of him or her doing something villainous. Domestic terrorism, or perhaps defacing someone's mailbox.

Instead, we've got something a little longer: ten of the nastiest, most foul movie villains from 2014. Each one despicable- b...

'Birdman,' 'Fargo,' Top Golden Globes Nominations, See The Full List Of Nominees

12/11/2014 12:19pm EST
Kate Beckinsale, Jeremy Piven, Peter Krause and Paula Patton all helped the Hollywood Foreign Press with the announcement of the nominees for the 2015 Golden Globe Awards on Thursday morning.

"Birdman," which stars Michael Keaton as a washed-up actor seeking a comeback with a Broadway play, leads the nominations in the movies category, including nods for Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy and Best Actor - Musical or Comedy (Keaton).

Keatons' co-stars Emma Stone and Edward Norton are also up for Golden Globes in their respective supporting actress and actor categories. Alejandro Gonza...

The Lego Movie
In "The Lego Movie," Emmet is an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average Lego minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world.

Emmet is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly under-prepared.

Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Charlie Day, Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman all voice roles in the film.

The movie had the biggest February opening for any animated film and was Warner Bros.' highest grossin...

Box Office Predictions: 'Divergent' Set To Win Weekend Over 'Muppets'

3/21/2014 11:40am EDT
Box Office Predictions: 'Divergent' Set To Win Weekend Over 'Mup
1) Divergent- 60M Weekend, 60M Total

Sure, it seems low, given how massive The Hunger Games was. But Divergent isn’t The Hunger Games, and it hasn’t been getting as good of reviews. I still feel like I’m lowballing it a tad, but almost every other figure I’ve seen for Divergent is below mine. I think the reviews are factoring in, and people don’t see any growth over the weekend, rather the potential for drops.

2) Muppets Most Wanted- 22M Weekend, 24M Total

Counter-programming. The last Muppets did well over Thanksgiving weekend, so the hope is that the sequel will do similar business. Ho...

'300: Rise Of An Empire' Tops The Weekend Box Office With $45 Million Debut

3/10/2014 7:22am EDT
300: Rise of an Empire
300: Rise of an Empire topped the weekend box office, debuting at number one and generating over $45 million in ticket sales.

The film, which is the sequel to Zack Snyder's 2006 flick 300, is based on the forthcoming graphic novel "Xerxes" by Frank Miller and stars Lena Headey, Rodrigo Santoro and Eva Green.

Family film Mr. Peabody & Sherman had a strong debut at number-two with $32.5 million, with both new films pushing Liam Neeson's action thriler Non-Stop into third place with a weak $15.3 million take.

2014's most successful film, The Lego Movie, slipped to fourth place, adding anoth...

'The Lego Movie' Producer Set To Bring Live-Action 'Minecraft' Film To The Big Screen

2/28/2014 5:01pm EST
Parents across the U.S. and around the world will be thrilled to know that Warner Bros. Pictures just landed the rights to turn popular kids video game "Minecraft" into a feature film (that was sarcasm).

The game, which isn't really a game and more of an open world where players build an avatar and a world and use square blocks to build things, has over 100 million users despite its remedial graphics and gameplay.

But Warner Bros., which just struck gold with another 'building' movie -- The Lego Movie -- which has pulled in nearly $300 million at the box office (worldwide) in just three w...

Box Office Predictions: 'Non-Stop' Track To No. 1

2/28/2014 12:20pm EST
1) Non-Stop- 30M Weekend, 30M Total

Non-Stop is definitely on track to dethrone The Lego Movie at the top spot. It even has a mediocre, not terrible RT score of 48%, which is almost on par with Neeson’s last February opening, Unknown. Unknown opened after Neeson had one Taken behind him. Now Neeson has become a 1st quarter superstar with films like Taken, Unknown, and The Grey all doing decent numbers. For this outing, he’s paired up with Julianne Moore, which gives him a solid #2 to bank off of. With the rest of the films in the marketplace doing kinda dismal box office, it’s hard to beli...

'Pompeii' Left In The Dust As 'The Lego Movie' Tops Weekend Box Office For Third Straight Week

2/23/2014 6:00pm EST
The Lego Movie
Everything is still awesome for The Lego Movie, which topped the weekend box office chart for a third straight week.

The animated family film (which is, indeed, awesome) added another $31.5 million to its three-week total of $183 million, more than triple its budget.

Kevin Costner's action thriller 3 Days To Kill, which has drawn several comparisons to Liam Neeson's "Taken" series, came in second with an estimated $12.3 million.

Sword-and-sandals epic Pompeii opened third, taking in just 10 percent of its $100 million budget. The film stars Kit Harington (Game Of Thrones) as -- stop us i...

Awesome! 'LEGO Movie' Sequel To Hit Theaters In May 2017

2/22/2014 7:58am EST
The LEgo Movie
Fans will have to wait three years for more awesomeness. Warner Bros. has confirmed that the sequel to "The LEGO Movie" will hit theaters on May 26, 2017.

Less than two weeks after its release, the animated adventure has already pocketed more than $200 million at the worldwide box office. The film hit theaters on Feb. 7 and made a staggering $69.1 million during its opening weekend in the United States. The movie had the biggest February opening for any animated film and was Warner Bros.' highest grossing animated opening. So far, "The LEGO Movie" has earned $146.3 million domestically.


Everything Is Still Awesome As 'The Lego Movie' Tops The Weekend Box Office

Everything Is Still Awesome As 'The Lego Movie' Tops The Weekend
Things are still going strong for The Lego Movie, which topped the weekend box office for the second week in a row, easily beating out competition from two three new releases and last week's number-two film. Lego easily passed the $100 million mark after nine days in theaters with $48.8 million in ticket sales.

Kevin Hart's remake of the 1986 Demi Moore/Rob Lowe hit About Last Night brought a strong Valentine's Day crowd, pulling in $29 million for second place.

And another remake, RoboCop, debuted in third place with just $21.5 million. The original, from director Paul Verhoeven, was rel...

Box Office Predictions: ‘Robocop’ Or ‘Lego’?

2/14/2014 9:18am EST
Box Office Predictions: ‘Robocop’ Or ‘Lego’?
1) The Lego Movie- 47M Weekend, 126M Total

I’m predicting a decent drop for The Lego Movie, as the winter storm barraging the country seems to be affecting box office already. Many theatres in affected areas are closed, and some theatres will see limited attendance anyway as people don’t want to go outside. For those that do, I’m sure The Lego Movie will remain a top choice.

2) Robocop- 21M Weekend, 25M Total

Robocop won’t beat The Lego Movie. I know I made it seem like it might, but it won’t. Sorry. I wouldn’t have predicted it anyway, and then I saw the mid-week grosses (Robocop opened...

'The Lego Movie' Crushes The Competition At The Box Office

'The Lego Movie' Crushes The Competition At The Box Office
The animated film "The Lego Movie" dominated the weekend box office after opening with $69.1 million in ticket sales. The film has earned the biggest opening of the year so far.

Chris Pratt, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Will Arnett and Elizabeth Banks voice roles in the film, which centers on Emmet - an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average Lego minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the key to saving the world.

Meanwhile, George Clooney's World War II drama "The Monuments Men" came in a distant second at the box office with $22.7 million.

Rounding out the top three was Ice Cu...

Don't Be Fooled, 'The Lego Movie' Is 'Awesome!'

Don't Be Fooled, 'The Lego Movie' Is 'Awesome!'
A film based on Lego toys may seem like a questionable choice for entertainment. But luckily Warner Brothers knows better. They brought in the writer-director duo of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who specialize in taking potential disasters and turning them into "awesome" delights. Remember “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs” and “21 Jump Street.” Both films seem crazy on paper, but on the big screen they are box office gold.

Not only is "The Lego Movie" cleverly written with plenty of gags like the "Kragle" and using Jonah Hill to voice the annoying Green Lantern, but also it is visua...

'The Lego Movie' Sequel In The Works

The Lego Movie
The honchos behind the new The Lego Movie have already started work on a sequel, just days before the film has even opened in cinemas.

The much-anticipated animated movie features a cavalcade of all-star voices, including Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Chris Pratt and Will Arnett, and Warner Bros. executives are so confident the release will be a big box office success, they have hired Wreck-it Ralph writer Jared Stern to begin work on a follow-up.

The Lego Movie follows an average Lego mini-figure named Emmet, voiced by Pratt, who is mistaken for a Master Buil...

The Most Anticipated Films Of 2014, Part One

1/1/2014 9:03am EST
Dumb and Dumber
No more new films will be released in 2013 - but there's no need to fret! Check out why we're hyped (and why we're worried) for these highly-anticipated 2014 films:

Dumb And Dumber To

Why We’re Hyped: The Farrelly Brothers, Jim Carey, and Jeff Daniels would only do the film if everyone was involved.

Why We’re Worried: When’s the last time the Farrelly Brothers made a good movie? Will Jim Carrey alienate half of his audience on Twitter – again?

The Expendables 3

Why We’re Hyped: Antonio Banderas, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson and Kelsey Grammer join the ridiculous cast for another go at...

The Lego Movie
"In 2014 The World's Greatest Heroes Will Join Forces For The Biggest Movie Ever Assembled," begins the trailer for next summer's literal block-buster The LEGO Movie.

The first trailer for the film was released on Tuesday (with the slightly different international version making its debut on Wednesday), and if the new feature-length adventure is anything like the recent Batman TV specials, it's sure to please.

The story features on Emmet, an "ordinary" LEGO Minifigure who is mistaken for the legendary "MasterBuilder" and thrust into an adventure to stop an evil tyrand from destroying the...
