After months of feverish anticipation and a marketing campaign that left everyone at ScreenCrush practically speechless, 'Man of Steel' has arrived (amidst a flurry of mixed reviews) and taken its place at the top of the box office chart. Although the latest Superman film broke June box office records, it's yet to be seen whether or not the film is truly prepared for the long road ahead.
We've all had that teacher at least once in our lives. You know the one. The oddball. The eccentric. The one whose bizarre worldview and teaching methods have a lasting (and not always positive) impact on his or her students. However, the award for the year's strangest teacher undoubtedly has to go to Jean-Baptiste Clément, a sixth grade math teacher who subjected his students to James Wan's horror film 'Saw.'
Whether you're referring to Stephen King's original novel or the 1976 Brian De Palma film, one mention of 'Carrie' conjures up images of bloody, psychic vengeance during a high school prom. For this reason, all of the marketing for director Kimberly Peirce's take on the material has focused on the final chunk of the film, where bullied teen Carrie White unleashes her supernatural powers on an unsuspecting populace. The newest poster doesn't stray from this formula.
Fans of 'Insidious' know that the first film ended with one final twist and a bit of a cliffhanger, so it came as no surprise when 'Insidious 2' was announced. Of course, there was always the big question of whether or not it would live up to the sheer terror of the first. With the arrival of the 'Insidious 2' trailer, however, the answer appears to be yes.
The first 'Man of Steel' clip has arrived! Is it a thrilling scene of Superman in flight? Is it an action-packed throwdown between Superman and Zod? No! It's...Lois Lane (Amy Adams) getting chewed out by her editor, Perry White (Laurence Fishburne). Huh.
How rare is it for a Will Smith sci-fi blockbuster to not open at number one at the box office? Also, how horrible must it feel for a Will Smith sci-fi blockbuster to not only get beaten by the second week of a long running franchise about fast cars, but by a magician thriller headlined by Jesse Eisenberg?
One of the stickier problems with the Marvel movie universe is that the rights to various characters are split up amongst many separate studios, meaning that the X-Men could never meet up with Spider-Man like they could in the comics. However, that hasn't stopped fans from daydreaming about these characters crossing paths someday. Now, with even Hugh Jackman chatting about the possibility of 'The Wolverine' meeting up with 'The Avengers' those dreams may now feel the slightest bit more real.
What looked like one of the big box office showdowns of the summer turned out to not be battle at all. Not only did 'Fast and Furious 6' take the number one spot at the box office, it did it while shattering records, leaving 'The Hangover Part 3' coughing on its exhaust.
The current discussion around 'The Avengers 2' has shifted from the stars demanding higher pay to something equally inside baseball: the rights to the characters of Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch. In the pages of the comics, they're mutants and Avengers, which has led to a pretty sticky situation. Fox, who has the X-Men rights, plans to use Quicksilver for the upcoming 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.' Marvel and writer/director Joss Whedon plan to use him for 'Avengers 2.' This conflict remained hidden when Whedon went on Late Night to chat about the characters with Jimmy Fallon.
When is a $70 million opening not a success? When its predecessor opened to $75 million four years ago. This is the predicament facing 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' which opened at number one at box office while being something of a disappointment.
