Monsters University
Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) and James P. Sullivan (John Goodman) are an inseparable pair, but that wasn't always the case. When these two mismatched monsters met they couldn't stand each other.

This is the story of how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends.

Ever since college-bound Mike was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer-and he knows better than anyone that the best Scarers come from Monsters University (MU).

Last week, director James Cameron promised not one, not two, but three sequels to his hit film Avatar.

Hot off the success of the 2009 film, Cameron revealed that there were plenty more tales to tell about the planet Pandora and its race of blue beings - the Na'vi.

Cameron plans on shooting the three sequels simultaneously, and he's got four new screenwriters on board to help him pen the three stories.

"Building upon the world we created with Avatar has been a rare and incredibly rewarding experience," the director said in a statement. "In writing the new films, I've come to realize that...

'Monsters University' Holds Off 'The Heat' For Top Box Office spot

Monsters University
Monsters University may have held off The Heat for top spot at the box office, but The Heat did well for an R-rated comedy that was out-promoted by White House Down.

White House Down, which spent plenty of money for spots during the NBA Finals and across TV, could only take a distant third with $26.6 million. Monsters University took around $46 million and The Heat earned $40 million. World War Z and Man of Steel round out the top 5 at $29 million and $21 million, respectively.

It's quite possible crowds were either confused by fellow "White House attacked" film Olympus Has Fallen, or fou...

Top Ten : The Prequel Effect (Infographic)

Requels Infographic
Movie Prequels are the perfect solution for expanding the story of a movie that ended perfectly. After all, many people wouldn't ever change an ending to a great movie, even if we want to see more of it. Prequels allows us to do that, by delving deeper into that story before it happens.

But are all prequels a good idea? Sometimes, when executed poorly, prequels are just another way for money-grubbing production companies to eeke another dollar from a beloved franchise, either killing it outright, or downgrading the value of the series.

What prequels were the most successful? What about th...
