Well, it looks like we've reached the worst movie weekend of the year. But that’s okay. It just means we get a little time to go outside and enjoy the fresh air.

James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy has been, without question, the completely dominating force at the August 2014 box office.

As if dimly lit bus stops weren't creepy enough at night, here comes a prank meant to promote Curse of Chucky.
