A big part of Seth MacFarlane’s comedic style relies on big pop culture references, and it’s because of this that A Million Ways To Die In The West an interesting challenge for him. Because the movie is set in 1882, references to any television show or movie was strictly off limits, as they plainly wouldn’t make any sense. It was certainly an obstruction that the MacFarlane had to deal with, but it also failed to stop him completely.
Disney's Maleficent offers a live-action re-imagining of the story of Sleeping Beauty, giving a new perspective on the tale's big bad fairy. Angelina Jolie plays Maleficent in the flesh and in a way we'd never seen this horned villainess before: with wings.

There are so many nods to fantastic moments in the X-Men universe in X-Men: Days of Future Past, and I mentioned my favorite to Hugh Jackman, which got him talking about the number of Easter Eggs in the film.
Chris Pratt Predicts Guardians Of The Galaxy Will Be Better Than Star Wars And Other Things We Learned On Set
I’ve said it time and time again, but it truly bears repeating: James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy remains one of my most anticipated films for the rest of the year. A big part of that excitement is the fact that the movie stars Chris Pratt, a young, extremely talented and charismatic actor who will be donning a red duster and awesome silver mask to play the film’s lead, Peter Quill a.k.a. Star Lord.

“There’s a joke where – I’m still not sure if I ever said it out loud or if I was just thinking it. But during the montage where we’re getting back at Seth and Rose, and we cut their bush into the shape of a guy bending over, I wanted to say the line..."
Marc Webb’s decision to go with Gwen over Mary Jane Watson in his rebooted Spidey story, The Amazing Spider-Man, led to rampant speculation that we, one day might be able to see Gwen’s saga played out on the big screen. Of course, that hope also led to all sorts of problems.
Because of the amount of charitable work Andrew Garfield and the cast have been doing on this promotional tour, I wanted to ask him about the efforts they were making to bring Spider-Man to the youngest fans.
