Walt Disney Pictures announced today that The Avengers will be converted to 3-D for its May 4, 2012 release.

This year was all about a boy wizard, a Bumblebee, and a sparklevamp.

A second trailer for 'Dr. Seuss' The Lorax': Just what the movie thneeded?

While there’s still Ted (voiced by Zac Efron) on his quest to find a real tree (as is the pitch-perfect music from The Polyphonic Spree,) the brand new trailer for Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax has a little bit more to offer than the initial preview. Particularly in terms of introducing the Big Brother villains, kid-baiting action sequences, back story about the mythical Lorax (the equally mythical Danny DeVito), and those seemingly extinct trees (not to mention the coveted last seed). Plus — hipsters rejoice– Vampire Weekend songs! Watch the second trailer below: READ FULL STORY

As expected, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 led the box office once again over the extended Thanksgiving frame, but Disney’s The Muppets reboot more than held its own in second place. Meanwhile, newcomers Arthur Christmas and Hugo started modestly, and The Descendants, My Week with Marilyn, and The Artist all impressed in limited release. Here’s how the box office played out over the holiday weekend: READ FULL STORY

James Cameron says 'Titanic' 3-D re-release looks 'more amazing than it did in 1997' -- VIDEO

While this isn’t exactly how these famous fellas envisioned Titanic should return to theaters, they’d probably still be thrilled that James Cameron came around and found a way to bring back the 1997 box office Oscar-winning smash. And in 3-D, no less.

“I’ve been looking for years for an opportunity to put Titanic back on the big screen, because that’s really where it belongs,” Cameron says in a behind-the-scenes featurette. The writer/director goes on to explain that he chose the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic to bring the film back to audiences to “re-experience” the movie. Cameron, who refers to the movie as “my baby,” went on to talk about the challenges in making a 3-D movie that wasn’t initially shot in 3-D. “We cleaned it up and made it as pristine as possible,” he says of the update. Watch the full clip below. (Admit it, you get some goosebumps when you see Kate Winslet’s Rose looking at the ship for the first time, too.) READ FULL STORY

'The Pirates! Band of Misfits' trailer, take two!

The second trailer for The Pirates! Band of Misfits proves the Pirate Captain, the main character in the Aardman/Sony Pictures Animation film, has more of a purpose than being the only time Hugh Grant will ever get to play a pirate: He wants to win Pirate of the Year, comedy ensues. Watch two versions of trailer  No. 2 below. The latter, for international audiences it appears, is slightly different: the parrot and monkey get more play, and you don’t have to deal with the “Kick Some Booty” pun. (Lucky them!)  READ FULL STORY

Box office report: 'Immortals' shields off 'Jack and Jill' and 'Puss in Boots' with $32 million debut

After two weekends atop the box office, Puss in Boots was thwarted by a pair of newcomers, Immortals and Jack and Jill, both of which opened to solid numbers. J. Edgar wasn’t quite as fortunate, but overall, the box office exhibited life like it hasn’t for the past few months, and the top ten ticked up 18 percent over the same weekend last year — a good sign headed into Thanksgiving. Check out all the details below: READ FULL STORY

Box office update: 'Immortals' slashes competition with $15 million Friday

Could it be? It looks like some Greek gods, a cross-dressing comedian, and a Spanish kitty cat are actually breathing life into the dismal box office!

Relativity’s Tarsem Singh-directed 3-swords-and-sandals action flick Immortals easily topped the box office on Friday, fighting its way to a better-than-expected $15 million. That puts the picture on pace for a $37 million weekend, about half of what 300 opened to in 2007. Still, considering the rut the box office has been in this fall, a $37 million debut is pretty impressive.

In second, Adam Sandler’s latest comedy Jack and Jill laughed up (actually, there probably wasn’t much laughing involved) $9.9 million on its first day. Sony’s Adam Sandler comedy could earn $27 million over the Friday-to-Sunday period, but considering his other films typically open in the $40 million range, Jack and Jill will have to work hard to join the $100 million club.

Puss in Boots finished in third with $9 million. The Shrek spin-off will lose some of its audience to the family-friendly Jack and Jill, but it still has a good shot at passing that picture and reaching second place. In all likelihood, it will earn a similar $27 million.

Brett Ratner’s terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad week gets just a slight bit better thanks to Tower Heist dropping by an alright 40 percent to $4.9 million on Friday. The Eddie Murphy/Ben Stiller comedy may fall by 35 percent for the weekend to $15 million, lifting Tower Heist’s total to $45.5 million.

Rounding out the top 5 is J. Edgar, which earned $4.3 million and looks like it’s headed for an opening right in the same range as Clint Eastwood’s last picture, Hereafter, which found $4.1 million on its first day of wide release and earned $12 million over the entire frame.

Check back tomorrow for the full box office report.

1. Immortals – $15 million
2. Jack and Jill – $9.9 mil
3. Puss in Boots – $9 mil
4. Tower Heist – $4.9 mil
5. J. Edgar – $4.3 mil

New 'Arthur Christmas' trailer: Christmas, accomplished!

Take dozens of elves trained like Navy SEALs, throw them into a tricked-out Air Force One, and mix in some fancy Mission: Impossible-style rope maneuvers, and you’ve got Arthur Christmas. The latest 3-D holiday film spins Christmas as a military operation. Kris Kringle (Jim Broadbent) is the General, and his burly second-in-command (Hugh Laurie) is named… Steve? Well, I guess not every denizen of the North Pole can have a name like Dasher, Dancer, or Crumpet. Then there’s Arthur (James McAvoy)… Santa’s son is a lovable galoot who believes in Christmas more than anyone, and his heart-of-gold resolve comes in handy as he turns out to be — you guessed it! — the only one who can save the day. See how our unlikely hero is called into duty after the jump. READ FULL STORY
