Seeing Double: ‘Dante’s Peak’ vs ‘Volcano,’ 1997’s Dueling Disaster Movies

(Welcome to Seeing Double, a series where two strangely similar films released around the same time are put head-to-head. This time, we take a timely look at two movies that turn volcanic activity into action/adventure romps for the big screen.) Volcanic eruptions don’t typically get the kind of attention in the US that hurricanes, tornadoes, and sinkholes do as they’re understandably infrequent here in the states. We had Mount St. Helens back in 1980 and then… nothing. The Kilauea volcano on H...

But the real surprise came from the debut of FUNimation Dragon Ball Super: Broly, a low key release that somehow ended up landing the #3 spot. Get the full rundown of Glass box office and the rest of the wee...

Thanks to Hulu, Disney lost $580 million last fiscal year

The streaming media business is tough. Disney, which has a 30 percent stake Hulu, saw losses of $580 million last fiscal year, according to an SEC filing.

In total, streaming accounted for more than $1 billion in losses for Disney last fiscal ...

The Mummy – review

Director: Alex Kurtzman Release date: 2017 Contains spoilers This was the second false start of the Universal monsters’ reboot (dubbed Dark Universe). The first attempt, Dracula Untold, was so unsuccessful that it was allegedly dropped from the continuity. This did not set the cinematic world alight and the Dark Universe again looked unlikely. One issue was the push in both of these films at the action adventure, rather than horror. Whilst they can be used in various ways, the classic monsters ...
