    The first trailer for Oliver Stone’s Snowden biopic premiered online Tuesday, and while the short teaser offers literally nothing in the way of footage from the movie, its tone hints at the direction that Stone is going to take with his film. “Army recruit at 20,” the trailer begins as a slowed-down version of “This Little Light of Mine” plays ominously in the background. “Joined CIA at 22.” “NSA Contractor at 26.” “By Age 29.” “The Most Wanted Man in the World.” The words are interspersed with close-up shots of a dirtied American flag, revealed at the end to be...

    Best friend. Hero. Marine. Max is all of these, and what’s more, he’s a dog. “Max” is also a movie, and as a family film mixed with adventure-film intensity, it’s something to woof home about. You may think you’re looking at a German shepherd, but Max is a Belgian Malinois, a member of the sheep-herding family to be sure. But this is a breed so strong, agile, smart and hard-working that it has become in many corners the “dog of choice” among the military as well as law enforcement. The movie is a work of fiction, but it is an...

AMC, which has faced the most backlash in the exhibition industry over the practices, told investors the Justice Department wants information “in connection with an investigation,” according to an AMC notice filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Monday, into “potentially anticompetitive conduct” at the company.

During its preview night in the U.S., Ultron made $27.6 million; on its first day, Disney reported the movie made $84.46 million.

    Triumph is Born of Struggle – An Important Truth, as Seen in a Movie Outtake By: Msgr. Charles PopeSome years ago, the movie Bruce Almighty was near the top of the box office charts. Unfortunately, one of my favorite scenes was cut from the released version of the movie. I was only able to see it in the “deleted scenes and outtakes” section of the DVD version. Why they deleted the scene is unfathomable to me, since I think it really decodes the whole movie.The movie features a prideful man (Bruce) who has complaints about how God runs the universe....

    When This is Spinal Tap came out over 30 years ago, it went over a lot of people’s heads. “Everybody thought it was a real band,” recalled director Rob Reiner. “Everyone said, ‘Why would you make a movie about a band that no one has heard of?’” It’s hard to believe that lines like “You can’t dust for vomit” failed to come off as anything but a joke. But, to be fair, Hollywood comedies were generally straight-forward affairs in the ‘80s. Think Blues Brothers or Fletch. Fake documentaries weren’t a thing.

    KANSAS CITY, Kan. (BP) -- What's the best movie ever made? A subjective question, if ever there was one. That's the magic of movies: some folks will enjoy a film that may seem an endurance test for others. While "Casablanca," "Citizen Kane" or "Lawrence of Arabia" may be prime examples of technical and artistic innovators, I challenge you to suggest a more important message than that found in "It's A Wonderful Life." In this film about an angel sent to Earth to rescue a man on the brink of suicide, James Stewart's George Bailey is given the opportunity to see...

In the relatively sparse annals of irreverent major studio comedies that pissed off foreign nations, for big laughs this one doesn't rate anywhere near Borat or Team America: World Police; the latter prominently included the present North Korean boss man's father, Kim Jong-il, among its many targets. Given the unique cloud under...
