What were they thinking? That's the question you have to ask Universal and the makers of 'The Huntsman: Winter's War.' As expected, the messy prequel-sequel to 2012's 'Snow White and the Huntsman' failed to topple Disney's live-action 'Jungle Book' from

Because it's the fifth anniversary of "Scream 4."
It's been five years since the release of 'Scream 4' (on April 15, 2011), but like the Ghostface killer, the franchise refuses to die. Since the first film's release nearly 20 years ago (on December 20, 1996), there have been four movies that have grosse

Disney's latest live-action update of one of its classic animated features is 'The Jungle Book.' But don't expect just a shiny CG update of the 1967 cartoon that turned Rudyard Kipling's fierce beasts into mostly adorable, toy-ready critters. For one thin

Happy 40th anniversary, "All the President's Men."
When 'Spotlight' won Best Picture in February, many observers recalled the Academy Awards race of four decades ago, when Watergate saga 'All the President's Men' was a top contender. Both movies made heroes out of the dogged reporters who had uncovered e

Well, two of 'em, Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson, are starring in Netflix's new sitcom "The Ranch"...
Time to feel nostalgic about nostalgia. It's been 10 years since the end of 'That '70s Show,' or 36 years since the end of the actual 1970s. At any rate, it's been a long time since the teens of Point Place, Wisconsin passed their last dutchie around in

Have you seen some of the scathing reviews that 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' has received? Forget Lex Luthor and Doomsday; this week it seemed like the biggest threats to the DC superheroes were the critics, who hurled pans that could have thwarte

How "Jungle Book" outperformed expectations by $30 million.
It wasn't a big surprise that Disney's new live-action 'The Jungle Book' opened at No. 1 this weekend. What was a shocker, however, was just how big the latest version of Rudyard Kipling's tale turned out to be. Going into the weekend, positive buzz for

Hard to believe it's been 15 years since 'Bridget Jones's Diary' surprised the world with blue soup, ugly Christmas sweaters, an unexpectedly funny Colin Firth, a shockingly nasty Hugh Grant, and a stunningly perfect English accent emerging from Texan Ren

Forget Wonder Woman or 'Zootopia's' Officer Judy Hopps. The most commanding female at the box office this weekend was Melissa McCarthy's hard-charging tycoon Michelle Darnell. The battle this weekend was 'Batman v Superman' vs. 'The Boss,' and while the

A closer look at this week' precipitous plunge...
Spare a moment's pity for Batman and Superman. They may be two of the most beloved superheroes in superherodom, and their movie opened huge last week, launching the DC Extended Universe mega-franchise that will (hopefully) be Warner Bros.' golden spigot

Happy 15th Anniversary, "Spy Kids."
Want to make a millennial feel old? Tell 'em it's been 15 years since the release of 'Spy Kids' (on March 30, 2001). Robert Rodriguez's kiddie action/sci-fi film about a family of secret agents, whose two pre-teen children must rescue their parents, was

Why is the horror audience mostly female? One reason has to be the genre's long tradition of heroines, scream queens, or final girls. They're the last ones left standing in the movie's final act, taking on the killer or monster while -- armed with little
