10 Apocalypse Movies to Watch With Happy (or at Least Not Totally Depressing) Endings

Current events notwithstanding, Hollywood rather adores imagining the apocalypse on the big screen. Many doomsday movies end with total destruction; that rogue planet is just gonna go ahead and vaporize Earth, or those zombies are just gonna take over forever. But sometimes, filmmakers do find little rays of sunshine…Read more...

The Best Movie Trailers of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) A well-cut trailer is a thing of beauty. To be clear: trailers are pieces of advertising. But that doesn’t mean they can’t be art, too. A bad trailer either shows us too much, relies heavily on cliches, or fails to grab our interest. A great trailer, however, can make or break a film. Put together a compelling, interesting, and original trailer, and you’ve gone a long way towards drawing in your audience. Which is exactly what the best tr...

Ethan Anderton’s Top 10 Movies of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) The 2010s will mark the decade when cinema as we know it started changing drastically. The movies themselves aren’t really changing, but the manner in which we get to see them is in the middle of a drastic overhaul. In some ways, it’s easier than ever to watch a movie. But along with that, it’s also gotten harder for movies to find their audience, let alone get made. Even so, the 2010s were full of movies that will stick with us for years...

Chris Evangelista’s Top 10 Movies of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) Narrowing down a top 10 list for one year is hard enough. An entire decade? It’s almost impossible. Almost. I hemmed and hawed my way through this task, debating with myself as to what titles would go where, and what titles would make the list at all. The bottom line: it was a great decade for film, and don’t let anyone claim otherwise. As of this moment, I am happy with this list. But check back in with me in a week – I may have changed ...

The 10 Best Hollywood Action Movies of the Decade

Hoai-Tran Bui’s Top 10 Movies of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) I can’t stress enough how formative this past decade of movies has been for my moviegoing experience. Sometimes I wonder if I can fully trust my opinions during 2010-2019, ever-shifting they were, and ever-evolving my movie knowledge was. I went and graduated college during that time, and began to form a movie opinion of my own outside of the one the film classes would impose on me. And in my opinion, the last decade of movies was fantast...

Sequel Bits: ‘Super Troopers 3’, ‘Star Trek 4’, ‘SpongeBob’, ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’, ‘Mad Max’

In this edition of Sequel Bits: Super Troopers 3 might happen. Simon Pegg offers an update on Star Trek 4. The SpongeBob Movie has a release date. Godzilla: King of the Monsters is bringing back a character from Kong: Skull Island. Tom Hardy seems convinced more Mad Max movies will happen. Super Troopers 2 came and went without much hoopla.

The 50 greatest special effects movies of all time

For about as long as there have been movies, there have been special effects. That’s no exaggeration: The medium was only a few years old when people began finding ways to toy with the reality of what the motion-picture camera was capturing, creating tricks from quirks in photographic science. A century later, the…Read more...

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Lawsuit May Prevent Future Sequels

The ongoing Mad Max: Fury Road lawsuit lives, dies, and lives again. The future of the franchise is in jeopardy thanks to a bitter court battle between George Miller‘s production company, Kennedy Miller Mitchell, and Warner Bros. The future of the Mad Max franchise has hit another bend in the road, as the bitter court battle makes its way from California to Australia’s Supreme Court of New South Wales.

12 Scifi Movies That Totally Deserved to Win Best Picture Before The Shape of Water

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Lawsuit Underway as George Miller Takes WB to Court

Oh, what a lovely day for a lawsuit. George Miller, who created a modern-day masterpiece with Mad Max: Fury Road, is not content to just sit back and make a Fury Road follow-up without getting his just rewards. The Aussie filmmaker wants the WB to pay-up on a bonus they originally agreed on. Warner Bros. doesn’t see it that way, and so both Miller and Warners will now hop into souped-up vehicles laden with spikes and race forward into the wasteland of due process. What will become of the potent...

Steven Soderbergh is Amazed ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Didn’t Kill Hundreds of People

Steven Soderbergh has always been a filmmaker very open to praising fellow artists, and in a recent interview the Logan Lucky director sang the praises of George Miller‘s Mad Max: Fury Road. In a bit of effusive praise for Miller and his directorial skills, Soderbergh commented on how incredibly well-staged the action set pieces in the recent Mad Max sequel were, and how they left him awestruck.

Gal Gadot Was Almost Furiosa in ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’

Before she donned the trademark wrist bands and Themysciran battle armor of Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot almost made the cut to play another recent female cinematic icon, Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road. Instead, it was Charlize Theron who nabbed the role and whose critically acclaimed performance as Furiosa gave her a second-wind career boost. Alas, this was one of the rejections that almost spurred Gadot to quit the Hollywood business altogether, as she confessed a few months ago, before she landed ...

Cool Stuff: ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Funko POPs Will Meet You in Valhalla

The number of Funko POP Vinyl figures that have been made so far is unbelievable. I’m honestly not sure how many different figures have been released, but I’m sure it’s in the low thousands by now. Will many of them end up in landfills? Probably. Will that stop people from buying them? Doubtful. Especially when they keep coming out with more and more awesome figures.

Charlize Theron on the Future of ‘Atomic Blonde’, ‘Mad Max’, James Bond and Female Characters

One of the panels that went overlooked at San Diego Comic-Con amidst all the major news and trailers from the rest of the convention was Entertainment Weekly‘s own “Women Who Kick Ass” panel. Usually, the panel features an ensemble of tough, badass women from movies and television, but this year’s panel focused on just one: Charlize Theron. With Atomic Blonde in theaters this weekend, Charlize Theron continues to proved that she’s a certified action star. As Theron said during the panel, she so...
