According to Chris Rock, The Interview may not be in theaters, but audiences can still watch it if they’re willing to trek up to 125th St. in New York City.
Over a decade after The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring debuted in theaters, Peter Jackson’s cinematic excursion into J.R.R. Tolkien’s universe finally concludes after approximately 782 hours worth of movies with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.
Armies should be a victory lap—celebrating the series and its mark on film while bringing the six-film series to a fitting conclusion. But instead, the bloated trilogy of Hobbit films—originally meant to be a two-parter—has demonstrated audience and critical fatigue with each new outing. Both Hobbit films released so far have made less at the box office than any of the three Lord of the Rings films, and the praise heaped on the first trilogy has been virtually absent for Bilbo Baggins and his crew.
The Battle of the Five Armies doesn’t look like it will be reversing that trend, especially when the best adventure into Middle-earth this year was in a game.
Netflix is ringing in 2015 with a few beloved films, new seasons of television, and the entire run of Friends, just to ensure the year gets off to a completely unproductive start.
As the year comes to a close and awards season picks up, it’s time to pick the best and worst films of 2014—and sometimes, that can be just as fun as watching them.
Yesterday, we passed along a few guidelines for choosing the perfect family-pleasing post-Thanksgiving film. Today, we’re gonna do the opposite—namely, detailing the movies we (mistakenly) thought were safe for cross-generational viewing, only to discover that we were horribly, horribly wrong.
Learn from us, gentle readers: Don’t stream any of these picks after your holiday meal… unless you want to make pie time super awkward. READ FULL STORY
Although Thanksgiving marathons on television haven’t even begun, Netflix has announced what films and movies subscribers to the streaming service can binge-watch throughout the holiday season.
Thanksgiving weekend is a time for being with family, eating a ton of great food, watching your favorite TV shows and… spending a lot of money.
With a number of outlets starting Black Friday earlier than ever, here are some of the biggest discounts that should make any pop culture fanatic’s wallet feel just a bit lighter when they return to work next week.
Thanksgiving weekend is a marathon of excess—excessive eating, excessive amounts of awkward family members, and excessive amounts of your favorite movies and television shows.
While streaming services have made it easier than ever to create your own marathons of beloved films and shows, plenty of TV networks are continuing the long tradition of programming long stretches of classic TV shows and film franchises throughout the Thanksgiving weekend.
Here are some of the best excuses to keep the TV tuned to a single channel throughout the holiday weekend.
SPOILER ALERT: The Barden Bellas have split up.
But before you scream “A ca-scuse me?!” it’s just a temporary separation. On this muggy June day in Baton Rouge, La., the cast of Pitch Perfect 2, the sequel to Universal’s sleeper about a college a cappella group, is pulling double duty. Rebel Wilson (returning as blunt bombshell Fat Amy) and Brittany Snow (back as dim bulb Chloe) are cloistered in the production offices, recording and preparing for dance rehearsal.
Meanwhile, a few miles away, Anna Kendrick and Skylar Astin, reprising their roles as vocal power couple Beca and Jesse, are shooting Beca’s first day of work as an intern at a recording company. “Any first-day jitters?” Jesse asks. “No,” Beca responds. “I’m just going to be moody and distant—artists love that, right?” If anyone has slight jitters, it’s the woman behind the camera: actress Elizabeth Banks (the Hunger Games franchise), who produced the original and appeared in a small role as sassy judge Gail. She’s now making her feature-directing debut. “This is the stupidest idea I’ve ever had,” she jokes during a break in shooting. “My first movie is this huge studio movie that a lot of people care about that also happens to be a musical with massive dance numbers. I don’t know what I was thinking.” READ FULL STORY
