Elizabeth Peña, the beloved hispanic actress known for early roles in films like 'La Bamba,' 'Down and Out in Beverly Hills,' and '*batteries not included,' has sadly passed away at the age of 55, according to her nephew. Peña had recently finished filming on the first season of the El Rey Network series 'Matador.'
Well that certainly escalated quickly: over the last couple of weeks Robert Downey Jr. has played rather coy about what's next for Tony Stark and Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but now it looks like we know the answer, as he's just been recruited for 'Captain America 3,' in a storyline that's said to bring Marvel's Civil War arc to the big screen -- which is a rather huge development.
'Dracula Untold' is hitting theaters this weekend*, and truth be, uh, told, it doesn't look that great. But it could be worse -- a whole lot worse. Cinema has a rich history with blood-suckers, and thanks to the over-saturation in the genre, it's quite rare to see a great vampire film. For every good one, there's at least 10 not-so-good vampire flicks. Honestly, it was hard to choose just 10 because there are some real stinkers out there. As a disclaimer, we kept 'Twilight' out of this because it was just a little too obvious. We all know it's awful, we don't need to beat a dead sparkle-horse.
*Does Dracula's story really need to be told again? Yeah, dude, we get it.
Looks like Warner Bros. is hoping they can replicate the success Columbia had with '21 Jump Street' with a small-to-big screen reboot of their own: the studio has hired Dax Shepard to write, direct, and star in a film version of the classic cop series 'CHiPS,' and he's bringing Michael Pena along for the ride.
While it's not a 'Frozen' sequel, fans of Disney's newest animated classic will be delighted to know that you'll definitely be seeing Anna and Elsa in yet another charming adventure -- the studio is planning an all-new animated short film titled 'Frozen Fever,' and you'll be seeing it sooner rather than later.
The 'Saw' franchise has been dead for a while now, but good news for fans of Jigsaw and his creepy little puppet: the original 'Saw' that started it all is heading back to theaters this October to celebrate its 10th anniversary.
Eduardo Sanchez, director of 'The Blair Witch Project,' is at it again with a new found footage horror film, 'Exists.' But this time he's ditched the witch and is tackling a new myth: Bigfoot, Sasquatch, whatever you want to call him. And it looks like the big guy does not like to be filmed.
Amid all the celebrations and laughter during Sunday night's 2014 Emmy Awards, there was one larger-than-life presence that was sorely missed: the late, great Robin Williams. And following the annual In Memoriam segment to honor the famous faces we've lost over the last year, Billy Crystal took the stage to honor his longtime friend and fellow comedian in a moving and heartfelt tribute.
Well, we don't know about you guys, but we've resigned ourselves to our new nostalgia machine overlords. Their latest decree: the film reboot of the long-running 'Power Rangers' TV series will officially hit theaters in 2016. That gives you plenty of time to figure out an excuse for where you need to be that day -- whether that's an excuse so you can go see the movie or an excuse to avoid it is up to you. The power is yours. Wait. That was 'Captain Planet.'
Lauren Bacall, the legendary actress who gave us memorable performances in classic films like 'Key Largo' and 'How to Marry a Millionaire,' has sadly passed away at the age of 89. A talented woman who appeared in many films in the Golden Age of Hollywood, Bacall was a true silver screen icon.
We've known for a while that Universal has been planning a reboot of 'The Mummy,' but the studio has struggled to find a director for the project, which will kick off a new era of their classic monsters. Alex Kurtzman, who recently parted ways with longtime writing partner Bob Orci, and who is helping Universal bring those famous monsters back to life, has now been tapped to direct the 'Mummy' reboot.
We've known for a little while that Marvel is taking a break from 'Iron Man' after three films with star Robert Downey Jr. And while they will likely make another 'Iron Man' in the future, it hasn't been clear if Downey Jr. would don the suit again. In a new interview, the actor and star of 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' hints that he's not quite ready to give it up.
