Simu Liu plays Shang-Chi. Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures "Shang-Chi" will likely surpass "Black Widow" as the highest-grossing film of the year in the US on Friday.

(Welcome to ...And More, our no-frills, zero B.S. guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could possibly stand to know.)"Shazam!" took a lot of people by surprise when it hit theaters in 2019.

(Welcome to ...And More, our no-frills, zero B.S. guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could possibly stand to know.)If adventure has a name, it must be Indiana Jones.

The Best Movies And TV Shows Leaving Netflix In October 2021

Spooky season is almost here, but before you fill your yard with jack-o-lanterns and your home with jack-o-lanterns and your body with jack-o-lanterns (AKA that sweet pumpkin spice drip), you have some streaming to do. As per usual, Netflix is rearranging their lineup and some classics will be disappearing into the ether, never to be seen again (kind of). Lucky for you, we're giving you a heads up, so you have plenty of time to catch some of your favorite movies and TV shows before they shuffle ...

The Alternate Ending In The Thing That Was Thankfully Cut

John Carpenter's "The Thing" is one of those classics that always gets cited as an example of a film that was an outward failure, initially, but that time has vindicated with a much-deserved reappraisal. It was not a critical or commercial success on its release, but in the years since then, it has come to be regarded as a monster movie par excellence.Carpenter himself once said that his whole career would have been different had "The Thing" been a big hit. He was coming off "Escape from New Yor...

The Best Animated Film Of Each Decade

Animation has been a tried-and-true staple at theaters since the birth of cinema itself, and while the format has had its creative ups and downs, there are great animated films to be found through each decade of film history. While Disney has something of a monopoly on the entire field of children's animation, especially before some legitimate competitors began to surface in the '80s, there's a wealth of animated films that go far beyond your traditional Disney fare. From the silent era, during ...

West Side Story Lyricist Stephen Sondheim Prefers Spielberg's Movie To The Original

Stephen Sondheim is undoubtedly one of the most important figures in all of 20th century musical theatre. The man is responsible for monumentally influential pieces like "Into the Woods," "Gypsy," "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street," "Company," "Merrily We Roll Along," "Assassins," and perhaps his lyrical magnum opus, "West Side Story."Sondheim wrote the lyrics for the original Broadway production of "West Side Story" (with a book by Arthur Laurents and music by Leonard Bernstein) a...

The 10 Best Western Movies Of The Past Decade Ranked

Steven Spielberg famously commented that the rise of superhero movies reminded him of the popularity of westerns, which has declined precipitously since the genre's heyday. And yet, ironically, westerns haven't taken a backseat in the past decade. If the mix of subversive and traditional western films over the past 10 years indicates anything, it's that the genre is always changing.Westerns are intertwined with the history of cinema itself, as exciting adventure stories set in the Old West were ...

Michael Mann's Tokyo Vice Adds Japanese Stars To Ansel Elgort-Led HBO Max Series

It's been six years since filmmaker Michael Mann last directed a feature film with 2015's "Blackhat," though it somehow feels even longer than that. In the meantime, before that streak is officially broken on the big screen, we've known that Mann will be turning to streaming to direct the first episode of "Tokyo Vice." That HBO Max series is adding to its ensemble cast, with reports indicating several Japanese stars are joining the production that already includes Ansel Elgort, Ken Watanabe, and...

The 14 Greatest Science Fiction Movies Of The 21st Century

The last two decades have seen an embarrassment of riches for fans of science fiction. Iconic sci-fi franchises like "Star Wars" and "Planet of the Apes" have returned with some of their greatest installments.

Sci-fi now intersects regularly with other genres, including fantasy, action, ho...

Generation Canceled By HBO Max After Just One Season

Why can't we have nice things? Or at the very least, why can't they last longer? Earlier this year, we got a very nice thing in the form of the new HBO Max series "Generation" (stylized "Genera+ion"), an ensemble story about a group of high schoolers learning about life, love, and family in a conservative California community. For a grand total of 16 episodes (delivered in two eight-episode batches), "Generation" was pure, ambitious, chaotic fun. But now its time to bid the show an early goodbye...

The Famous Ghostbusters Moment That Was Not In The Original Script

The original "Ghostbusters" is arguably one of the most quotable movies of the 1980s – which is strange to think about, considering it's a movie about a bunch of slacker scientists who sort of stumble their way into discovering a way to capture ghosts in New York City. Among the film's many memorable lines is "don't cross the streams," a crucial piece of info that Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis) gives to his ghostbusting pals and which comes back to save the day at the end of the film.

The Fascinating True (And Not So True) Story Behind Catch Me If You Can

When you hear Steven Spielberg's name, you probably think of "Jurassic Park," "Jaws," or any given "Indiana Jones" movie. And that's fair, but you shouldn't limit yourself to just the classics.
