How ‘The Godfather’ Influenced Ryan Coogler’s ‘Black Panther’ Ending

Black Panther‘s ending is one of the most impactful conclusions in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far, but it’s a good thing those productions build several days of reshoots into their process, because the entire ending was reworked at the last minute.

‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ Clip: Watch the Entire “A Place Called Slaughter Race” Musical Sequence

Every Disney princess deserves their big sweeping solo song, and in Ralph Breaks the Internet, Princess Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) got one — albeit an appropriately offbeat one. The young video game racer and quirky princess got her own solo song penned by the legendary Disney maestro Alan Menken in a song that is equal parts self-deprecating and inspirational, in the vein of both Wreck-It Ralph movies. But boy does Vanellope sing her little heart out about murderous street racing in the full ...

’21 Jump Street’ and ‘Men in Black’ Crossover is Dead

Back in 2014, when one of the biggest stories of the year was a huge hack of sensitive information from Sony Pictures, details on a potential crossover between the 21 Jump Street and Men in Black franchises came to light.

Unfortunately, the odds weren’t looking too good for the wild idea when Jonah Hill called the possibility of the sequel “kind of impossible,” and it turns out he was pro...

‘A Dog’s Way Home’ Review: A Feel-Good Family Film That Takes a Bizarrely Dark Direction

A Dog’s Way Home is a Hallmark card of a movie — it’s pretty and cute, but it’s full of empty emotion. Until about two-thirds of the way through the film when you realize that there may be a surprisingly dark hidden message scribbled in the corner by an embittered card maker. Penned by the writers of 2017’s saccharine super-hit A Dog’s Purpose, W. Bruce Cameron and Cathryn Michon, A Dog’s Way Home treads a similar path. There’s a wholesome story about a loyal dog (voiced with an extra-sweet lil...
