Why Did 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1' Have the Weakest Opening of the Franchise?

Posted By Gary Susman on November 11, 2014
It seems weird to call a movie that premiered with an estimated $123 million weekend, the biggest box office opening of the year, a disappointment. And yet, by the lofty standards of the "Hunger Games" franchise, the "Mockingjay – Part 1" debut is surprisingly weak. After all, the first "Hunger Games" opened two years ago with $152.5 million, and last year's "Catching Fire" did even bette...

'The Walking Dead' Season 5, Episode 7 Recap: You're Not Holding it Right

Posted By Katie Roberts on November 11, 2014
Eschewing the season-long formula of focusing on one person or group per episode, this week's installment of "The Walking Dead" instead featured all of our characters equally, weaving together their storylines as a way to set up next Sunday's sure-to-be-epic showdown at Grady Memorial Hospital. Unfortunately for viewers, that meant that there wasn't too much action to enjoy, as this episode serv...

But the decision to split the final book in Suz...

'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' Snags Brenton Thwaites, Possibly Javier Bardem

Posted By Jenni Miller on November 11, 2014

This featurette offers a sneak peek at Streep in action as she sings "Stay With Me" in a moving scene with Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy). Granted, it doesn't really make up for what we've seen of Johnny Depp as the W...

What in the World Is Going on at 'The Today Show'?

Posted By Gary Susman on November 11, 2014
The most striking thing about Thursday's episode of the "Today" show may have been what you didn't see: No empty chair where Natalie Morales usually sits (she was there, calmly reading the news, as usual), and no other sign of the backstage turmoil that has engulfed the venerable morning news show this week, which had threatened the jobs of correspondents Morales and Willie Geist and has already...

The 25 Best Christmas Movies Ever Made

Posted By Gary Susman on November 11, 2014
Am I the only one who finds most Christmas movies hypocritical?

It's enough to make you long for the homespun, slightly threadbare charms of a classic Christmas movie, like "Meet Me in St. Louis," released 70 years ago t...
