This year was all about a boy wizard, a Bumblebee, and a sparklevamp. Joining Harry, Sam, and Edward in 2011′s box office toppers were two groups of wedding-oriented train wrecks, several superheroes, and a bunch of upstart Southern domestics. Over in DVDs, a couple instances of horse power and some evil geniuses joined the fray. So which films topped the box-0ffice? Click through to see 2011′s most popular movies. READ FULL STORY »

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 »
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 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!)

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 »
