Okay, so it was one of the worst summer movie seasons in recent memory. Trying to find the good blockbusters amongst the last four months releases sometimes felt like trying to find a needle in a stack of s---. But even this year there were diamonds in the rough. Today we’re celebrating the ten best, the summer movies of 2016 that didn’t make us weep for the future of cinema — and note that this list is just movies that got wide releases in at least 500 theaters. We’ll have a separate piece on under-the-radar summer films you might have missed next week on ScreenCrush. In the meantime, let’s celebrate the highlights from a depressing summer before we clear the decks and get ready for the fall.
This summer, after a 27 year hiatus, Ghostbusters is returning to the big screen with the Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig led reboot. Also this summer, after a 15-year hiatus, Ghostbusters is returning to store shelves in the form of the classic 80s juice drink Hi-C Ecto Cooler...
With the exception of those new photos the other day, we haven’t seen much on director Paul Feig’s upcoming Ghostbusters reboot. While most summer movies have at least provided a teaser trailer by now, we still don’t know much about this new ghost busting adventure...
Football fans are no doubt excited for the 2016 Super Bowl, but even non-sports fans can find something to enjoy. No, we’re not talking about Cam Newton handing out footballs to little kids or Peyton Manning’s last stand, we’re talking about the Super Bowl movie trailers that will be airing during the commercial breaks. With the 2016 Super Bowl set to air on CBS this Sunday, we thought now would be the perfect time to run through what we know is going to debut during the big game and what surprises could still be in store. We’ll continue to update with any last minute surprises, and you can watch all the 2015 Super Bowl trailers on our site as they become available.
Alan Rickman, the tremendously talented British actor behind such iconic roles as Hans Gruber in Die Hard and Professor Severus Snape in the Harry Potter films, has died at the age of 69 following a bout with cancer.
It was a great year for movies. One of the best in recent memory, in fact, with enough outstanding films to fill three or four top ten lists. But the good in any artistic medium will always be outweighed by the bad, and even as it seems like the number of potential classics grows every year, the number of certified stinkers grows as well. Exponentially; there’s enough cinematic turd burgers from the last twelve months to fill seven or eight top ten lists.
No one likes to be spoiled, especially for a movie like Star Wars, which many fans have waited 16 years to see in theaters. There are custom filters for internet browsers, Facebook and Twitter, all set up to protect fans from finding out too much information too soon. But no matter how much you do, you still leave yourself open to human error: i.e., the guy who just can’t keep his mouth shut. In those unfortunate instances, there’s not much to do beyond sticking your fingers in your ears and humming as loudly as possible. What you don’t do is grab a gun and threaten to shoot the person who spoiled a movie for you. That’s what one Montana man did and now he’s been arrested and charged with felony assault.
Harrison Ford appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night to talk publicly for the first time about breaking his ankle on the set of Star Wars, crashing his plane and how Star Wars: The Force Awakens is an “incredible” movie. Oh, we should also mention he did all this while dressed up as a hot dog.
