Labor Day Weekend didn't bring anything new and exciting for audiences to enjoy, and in return people pretty much stayed away from the movies, making the weekend the second lowest of the year so far.
Is there a budding Drew Struzan waiting to be tapped by Abrams to help promote next yearís Star Wars sequel? Letís scan through a few of our favorite fan-made one sheets for the next Star Wars.
We have been hearing that the menacing Ultron will have to travel to Black Pantherís home land of Wakanda to pick up valuable resources in Joss Whedonís sequel. But itís unclear if an actor will have been cast to play the hero TíChalla in a Marvel movie for this potential cameo.
There are a lot of moving pieces that have to click into place before a Pirates movie can set sail, and last night, a number of crucial moves occurred that all but guaranteed another high-seas adventure for Capt. Jack Sparrow.
Well, it looks like we've reached the worst movie weekend of the year. But thatís okay. It just means we get a little time to go outside and enjoy the fresh air. Or if not, maybe you just go see Guardians of the Galaxy again. Either way, what weíve got coming here is no bueno. Itís the identical. And thatís it.
Is Vin Diesel just beating the Hannibal drum louder, from inside of a helicopter? Is that a real title treatment, and the sign that this historical war drama might finally be getting closer to production?
As popular as Star Wars is, I'm not sure there's a franchise out there that has dealt with more controversy and backlash. There are certainly those out there who unconditionally love every frame of every movie in the two trilogies, but there are also those who not only endlessly rant about the prequels, but also the Special Editions of the original trilogy that were made in the late 1990s.

It was more than seven years ago that we first learned Hollywood was planning a remake of John Carpenter's classic action film Escape From New York, and while we've heard regular updates over the years, the reality is that the project has never been able to budge out of development hell.

This, of course, is far from the first time that we've ever heard about a particularly out-there version of a superhero movie that wound up getting trapped forever in development hell. Some of you will remember that years ago Darren Aronofsky was going to make an adaptation of Frank Miller's Batman: Year One that would have featured a homeless Bruce Wayne, an African-American auto-mechanic named Al subbing in for the role of Alfred, and a batmobile that was also a Lincoln Continental.
James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy has been, without question, the completely dominating force at the August 2014 box office. Debuting on the first of the month, the film opened with a record-setting $94 million, and has spent 19 of the last 31 days holding the number one spot in the domestic top 10.
As if dimly lit bus stops weren't creepy enough at night, here comes a prank meant to promote Curse of Chucky. Watch as strangers shiver when the bus stop's lights shutter, then run in abject terror as the ad for this straight-to-DVD release bursts to life.

As the sassy, smart and unrepentantly girly Elle Woods, Reese Witherspoon was role model for many young women when Legally Blonde hit in 2001. But this law student with the can-do attitude, tiny dog sidekick and love of all things pink has also proved an inspiration for a little boy named Will, who's currently battling cancer.
In this story, a moviegoer talks about how their autistic younger brother identified with Drax The Destroyer. As part of his condition, he cannot comprehend metaphors; much like Drax's literal mindedness in Guardians Of The Galaxy.
