    Like Ten People Saw Kevin Spacey's New Movie This Weekend

    Kevin Spacey released a new movie this weekend called Billionaire Boys Club and well, it didn't do great. All told the film netted about $126. No, not million, not thousand, just $126. Going with an average of $12 a ticket, that means about ten people saw this film in theaters. Who were these people? Was it the last remnants of the Kevin Spacey fan club? Ten people so desperate for air conditioning they hadn't the time to worry about sexual misconduct allegations? Was it Kevin Spacey himself?? Who can say. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is going to have a tough time hitting the $1,000 mark this weekend. And that's if co-stars Ansel Elgort, Taron Egerton, and Emma Roberts go and

    Fantastic Four Writer Apologizes To Marvel Fans

    In recent years, with a multitude of satisfying portrayals of Marvel characters in movies and television shows, one might easily forget the critical and box office wreck of 2015's Fantastic Four was.

The movie was outright rejected by audiences. It earned one of the lowest box office openings for a Marvel- based film, and received overwhelmingly negative reviews. Fantastic Four was unnecessarily gloomy for a superhero film and left it's talent including Black Panther's Michael B. Jordan, to play uninteresting

    5 of the meanest extinct sea monsters that deserve their own blockbuster

    As "The Meg", a new sci-fi horror film about a giant shark, fills cinema screens worldwide, it's worth pausing to appreciate the animal behind the screams. Carcharocles megalodon (or just Megalodon) is one of the most impressive creatures ever to have existed on Earth. Huge, voracious, and beautifully mysterious, megalodons were the largest known sharks to ever exist. The species itself is only known from the fossil teeth it left behind, which can be as long as 18cm. These relics suggest an appetite for whales, and scientists have used them to estimate a body size of up to 17 metres. But despite their dying out at least 2.6m years ago, the primal fear such a massive creature inspires is very

    The 27 greatest movie franchises of all time, according to critics

    Over the past decade, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has built an expansive set of films while raising the critical and commercial expectations for ongoing movie series. But extensive film franchises have been around for awhile, and several older series, like the film adaptations from J.R.R.

Stretching from the first James Bond film, 1962's "Dr. No;" to the latest MCU and "Star Wars" entries; this list we compiled from Metacritic data ranks prominent film franchises by
