http://www.forbes.com/sites/markhughes/2015/07/02/jurassic-world-to-pass-avengers-age-of-ultron-all-time-box-office/
With the July 4th weekend set to pour tens of millions more into its coffers and foreign receipts that continue to impress, the latest dino-sequel Jurassic World continues to assert its status as the box office apex predator. Last weekend the juggernaut bit off $54.5 million at the domestic box [...]

Tatum and his crew are back, so read my review of MAGIC MIKE XXL at Forbes!

http://www.forbes.com/sites/markhughes/2015/06/30/review-magic-mike-xxl-is-more-popcorn-fun-less-proper-sequel/
The 2012 Steve Soderbergh teamed with Channing Tatum and Reid Carolin for the breakout summer hit Magic Mike. It was a little low-budget film that combined great performances from a great cast, great dancing and music, a great story with something serious to say, strong writing and directing, and Tatum's growing star wattage alongside [...]

Finally find out the details of the Marvel-Universal HULK film rights, and the truth about why there's no sequel (yet!)...

http://www.forbes.com/sites/markhughes/2015/06/19/details-of-marvels-hulk-film-rights-fans-can-relax-about-sequel/
Much has been made in the last two months of actor Mark Ruffalo's comments about the future of the Marvel superhero Hulk on the big screen. In an interview with Collider, Ruffalo stated, "As far as a Hulk movie, a standalone Hulk movie, Marvel doesn’t really have the rights to [...]

Read my new review and find out if INSIDE OUT is the best Pixar movie ever made, or just one of the best Pixar movies ever made...

http://www.forbes.com/sites/markhughes/2015/06/17/review-inside-out-is-pixar-perfection/
VideoFemale audiences have been showing a great deal of power at the box office in recent years, and Disney seems especially determined to deliver content featuring strong female leads in great stories that speak to female viewers. Disney has released seven female-led animated and live-action films among their 14 releases since the last [...]

Here's my new review, of the Beach Boys biopic LOVE & MERCY, a brilliant film you should definitely see!

http://www.forbes.com/sites/markhughes/2015/06/05/review-love-and-mercy-is-an-oscar-caliber-beach-boys-biopic/
So many films attempt to portray mental illness and genius as if they are in a symbiotic relationship. Such romanticized, excessively sentimental depictions of artists/geniuses with mental illness end up dehumanizing the characters and transforming their pain and suffering into a supposedly beautiful "price" they pay in order for the [...]

My full review of TERMINATOR: GENISYS says it's the best sequel since T2 -- find out why!

http://www.forbes.com/sites/markhughes/2015/07/03/review-terminator-genisys-is-true-heir-to-camerons-films/
VideoIt's been a while since I said my reaction to a film left me wondering what movie all the other film critics saw. So I suppose I was due for another "huh?" experience at the theater. If you've heard that the latest sci-fi sequel Terminator: Genisys is a poor entry [...]

I enjoyed this movie, and I'd give it a B/B+. I don't know why the reviews have been mediocre. I, like you, find it the best Terminator movie since T2.

Read my interview with ANT-MAN director Peyton Reed, including how he got into comic books, what he wanted to do differently than Edgar Wright, & what he thinks about returning for a sequel!

http://www.forbes.com/sites/markhughes/2015/07/02/interview-with-ant-man-director-peyton-reed/
We're just two weeks away from the release of the newest Marvel Studios superhero franchise launch, Ant-Man, and while reviews are embargoed until next week (catch mine next Wednesday!), the buzz on social media (including from me) has been highly positive so far. Marvel brought out the primary cast -- Paul [...]

Read my extensive interview with director Joel Schumacher for BATMAN FOREVER's 20th anniversary!

http://www.forbes.com/sites/markhughes/2015/06/26/interview-joel-schumacher-talks-batman-forever-legacy/
Batman has had one of the most lucrative and acclaimed, yet also most erratic and sometimes disappointing, cinematic runs of any superhero in history. He was among the first superheroes to appear on the big screen via 1940s serials, one of the first to get a feature film in the 1960s, [...]

http://www.forbes.com/sites/markhughes/2015/06/18/jurassic-world-may-hit-1-billion-on-second-weekend/
Last weekend, Jurassic World led the dinosaurs out of franchise extinction and into the record books with a $208.8 million domestic opening weekend, $315 million foreign opening, and total $524 million worldwide first weekend.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/markhughes/2015/06/10/review-jurassic-world-roars-new-life-into-franchise/
Sometimes I really love being wrong. When the first trailer for this week's "big lizard in our backyard" blockbuster Jurassic World dropped several months ago, my reaction was decidedly mixed. Riding a motorcycle with a pack of trained velociraptors? Really? Ouch. At least, that's what I thought at the time. I argued repeatedly with [...]
