A couple of weeks ago, an Indiegogo campaign popped up for the short film Portal to Hell!!! that would pit wrestling legend “Rowdy” Roddy Piper against the otherworldly elder god Cthulhu. And even though that campaign isn't over yet, the short is already getting expanded upon.

Over the past year or so, news and updates about Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice have set up the 2016 blockbuster as a gateway to a larger DC Cinematic Universe, but there is another big responsibility that it carries. The film is very much also expected to be a sequel to Man of Steel that further develops the Kryptonian superhero - but what does that mean?
Since the announcement this past October, the fact that all 10 seasons of Friends will be coming to Netflix in January has been all over headlines – but the truth is that it’s far from the only big new addition to the digital media site’s huge library.

Getting a bit of a late jump on the week as I usually like to have this out on Sunday.

Paramount Pictures has already announced that a sequel, but what if the TMNT were to extend their reach beyond their own franchise into other cinematic landscapes?
Much like the books they are based on, Peter Jackson’s Middle-earth movies are rather dense films. There’s not only an impressive number of characters to follow and plots to keep up with, but J.R.R. Tolkein also established a world with a full and rich history – and Jackson has worked to try and stay true to as much of it as possible.
Despite the film being titled Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, we haven’t heard a lot of news regarding the Man of Steel’s role. Fortunately, new information has come out spotlighting Clark’s role in the film, as well as several other fascinating plot points.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies meets every definition of giant blockbuster, and like its predecessors in the trilogy, it will be released in both 3D and 2D formats. But, of course, the question always loomed: is the extra dimension worth the extra money for the ticket?

Good day, horror fans. It was not the best week for releases on any front… unless you wanted to count the horrors of biblical history featured in Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings. Rivers have rarely run redder. Maybe Christian Bale will play a Southern space pilot in the next Prometheus movie.
There’s a lot of movement on the charts this week. Following the Golden Globes and the SAG nominations, I feel comfortable letting films that hung on as Longshots fall by the way side.
Twenty-two years is a lot of time for a film to make itself into a holiday staple, and The Muppet Christmas Carol has done just that in exactly that span of time. So why do they continue to omit one of its most important songs?
Sir Ridley Scott is one of the most influential filmmakers of all time. But what are his 10 greatest ever movies? Here's a list to provoke a furious debate on the topic.
In addition to this year featuring many outstanding leading men roles, we have also seen some truly incredible smaller character work from actors like J.K. Simmons, and Edward Norton. That being said, the Golden Globes have made the mistake of failing to nominate the true best supporting actor performance of the year.

Marvel has a diverse selection of films down the line for Phase Three, and while Al Pacino may be too old to play an ass-kicking superhero, there are still plenty of characters to be introduced that the studio for which they can cast the Godfather star. Here are our top picks for who he should play in the coming years, from dangerous foes to helpful allies. Marvel, take notes!
Chris Rock’s Top Five is a strange anomaly. It arrived on the scene with virtually no buzz whatsoever. But as soon as it started screening, it went from “unknown” to “red hot,” and never really cooled off. In fact, up at the Toronto fest, the buzz swirling around the film triggered a massive bidding war.
Getting into the holiday movie season typically means a plethora of flicks to choose from. Big budget films, pet projects, star turns and everything in between. This is a solid time of year to hit theaters. Not that everything coming out is great (see below), but the variety is there. This week we’ve got Moses and Chris Rock.
