BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Jeremiah S. Chechik's Christmas Vacation has become a movie staple of the holiday season in the years since its release in 1989, and it's not hard to see why. As awesome and funny as it is, however, it could have been balanced by some nice dramatic sentimentality in the form of a heart-to-heart moment between Clark and his son, Rusty. And it's all Johnny Galecki's fault that they weren't.
Between his TV cult-classics, and blockbuster film, The Avengers, when Whedon says he knows what will dominate the future of movies, “In Joss We Trust”.

Following the release of Batman Returns in 1992, Warner Bros. decided to go in a different direction with filmmakers, and wound up replacing Tim Burton with Joel Schumacher for what would wind up becoming 1995's Batman Forever. So what exactly happened?
Celebrities will go to great lengths to remain hidden from the public eye, and the new trend seems to be going completely incognito while surrounded by the hordes of thousands. Take Channing Tatum, for example.
After Sony pulled The Interview because of cyber threats seemingly linked with North Korea, movie fans were reminded of a certain 2004 comedy which had a similar plot including war against a North Korean dictator.
This has to be our retaliation, right? There’s no other explanation as to North Korea suddenly being offline other than the fact that President Obama told his top tech geeks to unplug the hostile nation while he was vacationing in Hawaii with his family.
Wonder Woman was among the many movies DC movies announced in October, and the film already has a director in place, but the film’s release isn’t as set in stone as we originally thought.

Fans are clamoring for bigger and better team up scenarios. If I had to place a bet, I’d guess that Marvel has big plans for crossovers by the time they get to Infinity War, so that heroes like Spider-Man, the X-Men and The Fantastic Four can chip in during the fight against Thanos. But as for the Guardians? Don’t hold your breath just yet.
It’s beginning to look a lot like the Christmas movie season. See what I did there? I took a classic song lyric and used if for my own purposes. Genius. As is often the case with this time of year, studios have a couple of bigger flicks hitting the screens for when people are off of work. We’ve got unbreakable dudes, gamblers and treks into the woods.
When Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman arrives on the screen in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it will be a fairly monumental moment.
