The magic mirror from “The Huntsman: Winter’s War” is really more of a shiny metal disc. It looks quite a bit like a gong. If only Chuck Barris were there to save us from the movie’s lazy “Frozen” rip-offs and general cut-rate Tolkien aesthetic.
Don Cheadle’s explosive, surreal “Miles Ahead” is closer to a Tarantino-style caper than a traditional biopic.
Four years ago, Bryshere “Yazz” Gray was fired from a Pizza Hut. Now, he’s spending hours in an on-set hot tub with Naomi Campbell before drying off and hustling to a recording studio to work with Timbaland. That’s the power of broadcast television.
The artists responsible for visual and audio effects in “The Force Awakens” were greeted like rock stars at the National Association of Broadcasters Show Monday.
Those arriving early to the National Association of Broadcasters Show were greeted with everything from a tutorial on aerial drone photography to footage of Oscar-winning director Ang Lee’s next film.
The announcement of four more versions of “Avatar,” a refreshing Jeff Goldblum and peeks at upcoming comedies, action and shoot-‘em-ups closed out the CinemaCon convention on Thursday at Caesars Palace.
If I’d seen Disney’s new take on “The Jungle Book” at the same tender age I saw the 1967 animated classic, I would have wet myself.
CinemaCon, the annual convention of the National Association of Theatre Owners, has taken over Caesars Palace this week to the point that you can’t even order an overpriced slice of pizza in the food court without hearing tourists gush about how they saw Ben Affleck walking across the casino floor.
Like most couples on the verge of a milestone, Wayde King and Brett Raymer have their share of disagreements. But as the brothers-in-law, co-workers and co-stars await the 100th episode of the Las Vegas-based “Tanked,” you could say they complete each other.
“You know, I once made love on a pool table in Hot Coffee, Mississippi, with six members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.”
Andrew Dice Clay was working in Las Vegas, performing at the Dunes and co-starring on NBC’s acclaimed drama “Crime Story” before most of the world knew who he was.
“Eye in the Sky” offers a ripped-from-the-headlines look at drone warfare as most of its participants argue the legalities and rules of engagement, as well as the political fallout, of their actions from thousands of miles away.
Unfortunately, “Dead 7” takes itself far too seriously for a movie with the tagline “Say Bye Bye Bye to Zombies.”
There really are no winners in “Batman v Superman.” That includes moviegoers looking for anything resembling a good time.
The first time I heard about plans for “The Real World,” it sounded insane. How could MTV possibly have found seven people who would agree to live in a house full of cameras and be filmed around the clock?
It’s spring break season, which means that, for the next couple of weeks, the Strip will be crawling — and stumbling and staggering — with tens of thousands more drunk college students than usual.
Every TV show or movie that shoots here includes a dramatic look at the Strip at night. Amazon’s “Bosch” goes a little farther to places such as the Container Park downtown.
“Olympus Has Fallen” wasn’t exactly crying out for a sequel. With that in mind, here’s a look at 10 of the most inexplicable, spectacularly misguided or just plain random sequels ever to come out of Hollywood.
He has no moral compass, has ruined countless lives and has murdered at least two acquaintances with his own hands. Yet, were he campaigning in the real world, Frank Underwood still would be one of the more reasonable choices this primary season.
There are plenty of storylines heading into the 88th annual Oscars, aka the second annual #OscarsSoWhite.
The cast of the crooked-cop drama "Triple 9" boasts an Oscar winner and three other nominees, a three-time Emmy winner and an additional nominee, an Avenger, a member of the Justice League and the breakout star of "The Walking Dead." The lesson? Everybody has bills to pay.
Chris Rock's monologue at Sunday's Oscars ought to kill. Given the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, no host has ever been this primed to blow the roof off the Academy Awards.
In this era of #OscarsSoWhite, should moviegoers clamoring for diversity be satisfied when Hollywood offers them anything at all? Or is it too much to want those morsels to be better — terrific, even — so that they could actually find themselves in the mix for future Oscars?
It's not too late to start your Oscar prep by catching up on a whole year's worth of movies in time for Chris Rock to skewer them when he hosts the Academy Awards on Feb. 28.
