Every year presents a new apocalypse for the film industry and every year sees movies and theaters evolving to match the increasingly strange age that we live in. However, Hollywood's evolution may not be happening fast enough to win back certain audiences. A new Harris Poll asked Americans about their moviegoing habits and the results are a fascinating combination of the surprising and the not-so-surprising.
First, there was the under-watched but beloved TV series. Then there was the Kickstarter campaign that shattered all expectations. Then came the trailer that proved that, yes, a feature film sequel to 'Veronica Mars' did in fact exist and wasn't an elaborate practical joke on fans. Now, here's the first 'Veronica Mars' movie poster, which you will actually be able to see in your local multiplex as further proof that the 'Veronica Mars' movie is real and is only a few months away.
Although the biggest hook for 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is how the film will combine both the original X-Men team and the cast of 'X-Men: First Class,' it will have no shortage of new mutant heroes and villains. The most intriguing of them (for reasons beyond the movie's story itself) is Quicksilver, the Marvel Universe's answer to the Flash. A new still from the film gives us our first look at actor Evan Peters in the role.
In 1977, Marvel Comics published the very first 'Star Wars' comic book. Now, nearly 40 years later, George Lucas' beloved universe is coming home. In an act of unsurprising corporate synergy, Lucasfilm has announced that, beginning in 2015, Marvel will exclusively publish new 'Star Wars' comic books for the fans hoping to experience the saga outside of the main films.
In the weeks following the tragic death of Paul Walker, Universal and the crew of 'Fast and Furious 7' have been forced to drastically course correct the direction of the blockbuster franchise. With little time to mourn and countless jobs and dollars on the line, sources reveal director James Wan, writer Chris Morgan and executive Jeffrey Kirschenbaum will gracefully "retire" Walker's Brian O'Conner from the series using footage already shot for the film.
Earlier today, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson answered questions from fans as part of a free-for-all Twitter Q&A. Although you can check out the rest of the questions and answers by searching for the #RockTalk hashtag, one item should prove particularly interesting to fans of comic book movies. The beloved action star said that he's met with Warner Bros. executives concerning a DC Comics movie of some kind.
Although you'd think people would spend the holidays in their homes catching up with their families and what-not, they actually tend to go to the movies after opening gifts and having awkward conversations. And Christmas Day moviegoers had a bunch of options this week, with recent releases (and not-so-recent releases) still going strong and a whole bunch of new releases arriving to coincide with the holiday.
2014 looks like it will be a big year for the 'Paranormal Activity' franchise, with a fifth film hitting around Halloween and the intriguing spinoff, 'Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones,' arriving in a week. We don't know much about 'Paranormal Activity 5,' but we do know plenty about the spinoff, which takes this increasingly complicated found-footage saga of demons and possession to a Latino neighborhood. Two new clips have arrived from the film, and if you're looking for more of the same, you'll be very pleased.
When it was revealed that Wonder Woman was going to be a character in the increasingly inaccurately titled 'Batman vs. Superman' and that 'Fast and Furious' franchise actress Gal Gadot would be taking the glowing reins, fan response was exactly what you'd expect it to be. But now we can start to cut through the noise. For the first time since landing the part, Gadot has spoken about taking on such an iconic role.
It's no secret that James Bond creator Ian Fleming based many aspects of his legendary fictional spy on parts of himself, but the trailer for the upcoming four-part BBC miniseries 'Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond' wants to believe that he actually was 007. Our new look at footage from the series has enough action and seduction to make it look like an actual James Bond movie, which should appeal to everyone except those looking for an accurate Fleming biopic.
