Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Moana’ Rules the Box Office on a Mixed Holiday Weekend

The box office success of Moana feels like destiny: an old school Disney formula plus 21st century polish plus great songs plus the mere presence of Dwayne Johnson and near-universal critical notices is a surefire recipe for success...

The 2016 ScreenCrush Holiday Gift Guide For the Discerning Pop Culture Fan

Whatever holiday you celebrate in December, it comes with a lot of pressure. If you get that special someone the wrong gift, watch out. Things can get pretty ugly. That’s particularly true for pop-culture fans. They know what they want, and they probably have most of it already. Perhaps you know someone like this. Perhaps you are someone like this. (Perhaps I am someone like this.)

The 25 Greatest Disney Songs Ever

Over nearly 80 years, the 56 feature films from Walt Disney Animation Studios have become beloved and instantly recognizable their iconic fairy tales, memorable comic-relief sidekicks, terrifying villains, and some of the greatest songs in cinema history. This week heralds the release of Disney’s latest animated film, Moana, which boasts songs co-written by Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. So there’s no better time to compile a list of the 25 best songs in animated Disney history — with a couple of important pre-list caveats. First, to avoid overloading the list with songs from only a few films, each movie here could only be represented by a maximum of two songs. Second, this list has films in the official Disney animation canon only, so nothing from Pixar or even The Nightmare Before Christmas. With that in mind, here’s the list!

What’s Expiring From Netflix Instant: December 2016

Netflix may be giving us Captain America: Civil War on Christmas (and many more great additions next month), but there are also several titles expiring from the service in December, including — gasp — every season of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. Okay, you might not be all that concerned about Kevin Sorbo’s biceps, but chances are there’s at least one or two things on this list of expiring movies and TV shows that you’ll probably want to watch before they leave Netflix next month.

The ‘Cars 3’ Trailer Teases a Darker Pixar Movie

At the risk of flushing all of my critical cred right down the toilet, I will confess I don’t hate the first Cars. And Cars 2, while insane, is sort of fascinating in its madness. It’s not good, but I have watched it more than once. On the advice of my attorney, I will not comment on my physical or emotional impairment at the time of these screenings.

New Netflix Instant Releases: December 2016

As a special gift to you this holiday season, Netflix is bringing Captain America: Civil War to Instant (on Christmas, no less), allowing you to stream and repeat to your heart’s desire. That’s not all, of course, as the streaming service is adding several new and classic titles in December, including Netflix Originals like Fuller House Season 2, the first season of the Guillermo del Toro-produced animated series Trollhunters, and the young Barack Obama-goes-to-college movie Barry (the trailer for that one just dropped this morning).

You Can See ‘Sing’ for Free on Thanksgiving Weekend, Courtesy of AMC Theatres

Here’s the thing: After this election, many of you will undoubtedly endure awkward and possibly contentious Thanksgiving dinners with your families. And after that, some of you will get up before the sun rises the next day to participate (either willingly or as the reluctant hostage of a loved one) in the harrowing tradition known as Black Friday. By Saturday, you will find yourself in dire need of a reminder that there is still joy in this world. Lucky for you, AMC Theatres and Universal have your back with free screenings of Sing.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Arrival’ Does Battle With ‘Doctor Strange’ and ‘Trolls’

It looks like the general public reacted to one of the most stressful weeks in living memory by flocking to the movies for a few hours of escape. Both Doctor Strange and Trolls, which debuted to solid numbers last week, held on strong. Arrival, the biggest newcomer of the bunch, also opened well, proving that it’s entirely possible to open in third place and still be a winner at the box office.

Robert Redford’s Getting Out of the Acting Game After Two More Roles

You gotta respect Robert Redford’s style. He’s not one of those interminable wafflers like Quentin Tarantino or Michael Jordan, constantly announcing and then un-announcing retirement every few years to shore up relevancy when necessary. Robert Redford says he’s gonna do a job, he does the job. He says he’s gonna finish up the two acting gigs he’s already taken and then shift to full-time direction, you can be sure he’s not gonna pop up in a couple years with a “gotcha!” and news of a new role.

Hong Kong Disneyland Unveils ‘Iron Man Experience’ Ride, Failing Heart Not Required

On January 17 of next year, Hong Kong Disneyland will finally pull back the curtain on their newest attraction, the Iron Man Experience. The immersive virtual simulation puts visitors right in Tony Stark’s jet-powered shoes, offering mere mortals the chance to live like the first breakout Avenger. The ride begins as you wake up, a nasty hangover pounding like a bass drum inside your skull. You roll over in bed, where three messy-haired models peacefully slumber. Look down, and oh no — your failing heart is in danger of conking out yet again, better drag yourself across the floor to get a replacement before cardiovascular stress ends your life. What fun!

Dormamm-who? Everything You Need to Know About Marvel’s New Big Bad

Being a Marvel zombie has its advantages. Collecting comics for more than 20 years means I have thousands upon thousands of them stashed away in my parents’ basement and closets, a treasure trove worth tens of ones of dollars. It also means that the biggest cinematic universe going in Hollywood is pretty much aimed right at a target audience of me. And finally, it means when a giant floating head shows up out of nowhere in the middle of a movie, I know who the hell the giant floating head is and what the hell is going on. Dormamm-who?
