10 Things You Need to Know About 'Fury'

Posted By Drew Taylor on October 10, 2014
War is hell. This much we know is true. It's also the fodder for prestige action movies like "Fury," about a small team of men who pilot and maneuver the titular tank in the waning days of World War II, where Hitler's Germany acted like a scared and wounded dog -- all teeth and matted fur and ferocious intent. Brad Pitt leads the platoon, which is stocked handily with fine actors like Jon...

Posted By Jonny Black on October 10, 2014
The "King Kong of crime movies" is 20 years old today. Rolling Stone gave "Pulp Fiction" that moniker upon its release, and it's hard to argue that the name doesn't still ring true two decades later.

We're Getting Even More Episodes of 'Gotham'

Posted By Katie Roberts on October 10, 2014
Who needs Batman? Fox's "Gotham," an origin series about the villains populating Bruce Wayne's hometown, is doing just fine without the Caped Crusader, so much so that the network has ordered an additional six episodes of the series, bringing it to a full 22-episode season. The freshman drama, which stars Ben McKenzie ("Southland," "The O.C.") as a young Jim Gordon, has been a ratings darling...

Watch John Oliver's Awe-Inspiring Rant Against Pumpkin Spice

Posted By Tim Hayne on October 10, 2014
"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver is passionate about a lot of things, but the latest object of his anger -- pumpkin spice -- seems a little out of place among his regular, more political topics. That's not to say his argument calling out the irrationality of America's very seasonal love for pumpkin and all of its flavorings is any less logical. Don't worry, there're plenty of jokes mixed in...

'The Mortal Instruments' Franchise Will Continue as a TV Series

Posted By Katie Roberts on October 10, 2014
"The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" was a box office disappointment last year, delaying production of its sequel, "City of Ashes."

Marvel Is Plotting a 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Animated Series

Posted By Drew Taylor on October 10, 2014
This summer's "Guardians of the Galaxy" was, ostensibly, a "surprise" smash. It wound up being the biggest hit not only of the summer, but of the entire year; a juggernaut that kept on raking in the dough. But it might not have been that much of a surprise, at least to the folks at Marvel and Disney, considering that an animated series is already well underway, set to debut on Disney XD (as part...

'Guardians of the Galaxy' Star Dave Bautisa Cast in Next James Bond Movie

Posted By Drew Taylor on October 10, 2014
One of the bigger surprises in this summer's "Guardians of the Galaxy," besides how cute the sentient tree creature ending up being, was wrestler Dave Bautista's performance as Drax the Destroyer, the thuggish warrior hell-bent on serving up some good, old fashioned revenge (for the murder of his family). He was tragic, funny, and showed amazing physicality in a handful of memorable action set...

Who won at the box office this weekend? Sure, "Gone Girl" earned the most money -- an estimated $26.8 million -- but several other movies could also plausibly claim victory and bragging rights by different measures of success.

Let's Discuss That Mind-Blowing 'Walking Dead' Season 5 Premiere

Posted By Katie Roberts on October 10, 2014
It's been pretty clear over the past four seasons of "The Walking Dead" that the titular zombies are merely sideline characters in their own apocalypse, as the human stars of the show – and the crazy, high stakes drama that they manufacture – have been the main focus of the series since its inception. So it was a pleasant surprise to see a huge horde of the undead play such a key role...
