First ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff Officially Titled ‘Rogue One’

Star Wars details have always been difficult to come by, but they've proven even more difficult with the upcoming spinoff. Other than confirmation that Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) will direct, we know very little about the film. Well, now we at least know what it will be called. Disney and Lucasfilm today confirmed that the first ever Star Wars spinoff will be officially called Rogue One.

New ‘Fast and Furious 7’ Video Reveals How They Pulled Off That Insane Plane Stunt

The stunts in the Fast and Furious franchise have grown increasingly ridiculous over the years, with the heroes (and their cars) defying the laws of physics at every turn. While it’s obvious that the more ludicrous action scenes are created with the help of CGI, a new behind-the-scenes featurette has revealed that one of the most insane scenes from the Fast and Furious 7 trailer is real. Yes, they really did drop a fleet of parachute-equipped muscle cars out of an airplane.

Watch Robert Downey Jr. Present a Bionic Arm to a One-Armed ‘Avengers’ Fan

Robert Downey Jr., presenting a bionic Iron Man arm to an exceedingly well-dressed 7-year-old fan named Alex, who was born with a partially developed right arm. The arm wasn’t built by Tony Stark, but rather by a college student named Albert Manero who makes low-cost 3D-printed bionic limbs for children. But Downey received the honor and pleasure of presenting him with his new arm, and comparing it to one of his own Iron Man suits.

‘Hotel Transylvania 2’ Trailer: Things Get Batty in This Adam Sandler Sequel

Adam Sandler’s live-action comedies have been underperforming lately (so much so that he recently signed a deal to make his next movies for Netflix), but 2012’s Hotel Transylvania was one of Sandler's best performing films in years. Because of that success, a new sequel is on the way with the whole “Drac Pack” returning for a spooky adventure.

Liam Neeson Says He’s Ready to Quit Action Movies

With Taken, Liam Neeson became an unlikely action star, with his quiet, solemn masculinity lending gravitas to even the silliest dialogue and story beats. But rather than use the success of that instantly meme-able film as an excuse to pursue more period dramas and British weepies, Neeson embraced his newfound action hero identity. Now, after seven years of snapping necks and gunning people down across several continents, it looks like he’s ready to retire from the action hero game for good.

‘Cinderella’ Review: This Old Fairy Tale Still Has Some Magic

The name “Disney” brings to mind images of fair princesses, charming princes, magical fairy tales, and simple happily ever afters. In recent years, though, Disney has begun rethinking their classic properties, and releasing more thematically complex versions of their famous films. Sleeping Beauty became Maleficent, which turned a wicked witch into a sympathetic anti-hero; a whole mess of fairy tales turned into Into the Woods, where happily ever after preceded a whole bunch of death and tragedy. The ranks of Disney Princesses grew to include women like Merida, the bow-slinging heroine of Brave, and Anna and Else from Frozen, who rescued each other from an prince, rather than the other way around. Every value and concept that Disney had established and reinforced through decades of repetition was seemingly up for reconsideration and revision.

Some Genius Mashed Up Earl Sinclair From ‘Dinosaurs’ Rapping Notorious B.I.G.

We don't even know how to convince you to watch this video, other than to tell you that sometimes you just need to trust us. Someone created a video mashup of Earl Sinclair from Dinosaurs — the 90s ABC family sitcom starring dinosaur puppets — rapping the entirety of Notorious B.I.G.'s ‘Hypnotize’. Yes, we realize this makes no sense, but it's perfect.

‘Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials’ First Look: So, What’s Outside of the Maze?

The Maze Runner was a surprisingly entertaining movie, even at a time when dystopian young adult adaptations are already feeling stale. There was a lot of inherent mystery built up around the film's central conceit — what the heck is this maze, who built it and can our heroes solve it? — and that was great. But, how will a Maze Runner film work when (spoiler alert) there's no maze? Enter: The Scorch Trials.
