We live in a world where commercial directors speak (and breathe and live) the same pop culture language as the people they've been hired to peddle all kinds of products to. The result: television advertisements have gotten more clever, more specific, and most importantly, more ready to become instant viral sensations on the internet. A new IKEA commercial, whose release in the chilly weeks of October is no coincidence, cleverly parodies one of the most famous horror movies of all time and it's pretty cool.
Brad Pitt's new World War II drama 'Fury' opened at number at the box office and has officially defined what this October has been about: long, R-rated movies featuring huge movie stars bucking the usual trends and out-grossing their family friendly competition. Between this and 'Gone Girl,' it looks like grown adults are heading to their multiplex more than ever these days.
The box office can often produce some pretty wacky showdowns, but few have showcased too films as wildly different as 'Annabelle' and 'Gone Girl.' The creepy spin-off from 'The Conjuring' and the latest fro
When you put Denzel Washington in an action movie, you've written your meal ticket for the foreseeable future. Few actors are as consistent as Washington with their opening weekends, even when the project looks like something everyone has seen countless times before
Dwayne Johnson has been teasing his involvement in a 'Shazam' movie for years now, constantly asking fans on social media if they'd rather see him play the title superhero or his nemesis, Black Adam. Today, it looks like that decision has finally been made. Johnson took to Twitter and revealed that he'll be playing Black Adam.
A few weeks ago, this column was skeptical that Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' could reach $300 million. Now, it seems impossible that it won't. Thanks to ecstatic word of mouth, killer marketing and only one genuinely successful box office challenger (that would be 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'), Marvel's oddball space opera has managed to spend three of the past four weekends at the number one spot at the box office, giving it enough momentum to officially become the highest grossing film of 2014.
Yes, that is the head of an animatronic velociraptor that will appear in 'Jurassic Park 4,' giving us our first direct look at a dinosaur from the highly anticipated film. It turns out that director Colin Trevorrow wasn't lying or exaggerating when he promised that his sequel would feature practical effects ... and we love him for it.
You know how some people hear that a movie is two and a half hours long and they moan and groan about being stuck in a theater for so long (*ahem*)? Well, watch them suffer a heart attack when you tell them about a new movie that will run for 720 hours and now has a 72-minute trailer.

Last week, the internet couldn't stop talking about Harrison Ford's 'Star Wars: Episode 7' injury. Oh, the jokes! Oh, the memes! There's a certain amount of comedy to be found in an elderly Han Solo injuring his ankle thanks to the door of the Millennium Falcon. But now is the time to quit with the laughter: Ford's injury, while certainly not life-threatening, is bad enough that he won't be able to return to the set for eight weeks.
The first 'Dumb and Dumber 2' trailer will officially arrive with '22 Jump Street' next week, but you don't have to wait until then to get a new look at Harry and Lloyd's grand return.
