The Story Behind The Surprise Breakout Character In “Tomorrowland” — The most pivotal character in Tomorrowland is the one audiences likely know least about. Although the film's promotional material has put stars Britt Robertson and George Clooney front and center, one aspect that director Brad Bird ( The Incredibles, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol) and co-writer Damon Lindelof ( Lost, Prometheus, Star Trek Into Darkness) managed to conceal almost entirely was its breakout character of Athena (relative newcomer Raffey Cassidy).

"Pitch Perfect 2" Made More In One Weekend Than "Pitch Perfect" Did In Its Entire Run — When Pitch Perfect opened on the relatively quiet weekend of Sept. 28, 2012, Universal Pictures was so unsure that an ensemble comedy about an all-female collegiate a cappella group would be a mainstream box office hit out of the gate that it released the film in just 335 theaters, and then expanded the second weekend to 2,770 theaters.

Fury Road" Is Almost Stolen By A Flame-Throwing Guitarist — Of all the batshit insanity bursting out of every frame in Mad Max: Fury Road, one of the most delightful surprises is the Doof Warrior. He's the manic, masked guitarist perched atop a giant rolling stage festooned with massive speakers, surrounded by a marauding war party tearing through the desert, as he blasts rock metal licks from an electric guitar fashioned from a bed pan that also doubles as a flame thrower.

Fury Road" Features A Badass Woman Like We've Never Seen Before — The title of Mad Max: Fury Road refers to Max Rockatansky, first played by Mel Gibson more than 30 years ago in director George Miller's original Mad Max trilogy, and now played by Tom Hardy in Miller's long-anticipated reboot.

The Cast Of "Captain America 3" Is Even Larger Than The Cast Of "Avengers 2" — Of all the criticisms of Avengers: Age of Ultron, one of the most common is that the Marvel Studios' felt overstuffed with so many superhero characters and villains that the movie could hardly contain them. So for Marvel Studios' next big May blockbuster, Captain America: Civil War, they have stuffed even more characters into the mix.

Joss Whedon Calls “Horsesh*t” On Reports He Left Twitter Because Of Militant Feminists — When filmmaker Joss Whedon decided to delete his Twitter account on Monday, the day after his film Avengers: Age of Ultron debuted with the second-highest domestic opening weekend ever, it prompted a flurry of speculation about what, or who, might have driven him away.

The Reason Behind Hawkeye’s Big Secret In “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” — One of the perils of making a Marvel Studios movie is that the comic book source material is so vast and complicated that any major creative choice has the potential to majorly upset fans.

The Emotional Evolution Of The Hulk In "Avengers: Age Of Ultron" — One of the best surprises of 2012's The Avengers was the re-re-introduction of the Hulk, and of Mark Ruffalo as his alter ego Dr. Bruce Banner. (Eric Bana first played Banner in 2003's Hulk, followed by Edward Norton in 2008's The Incredible Hulk.)

Age Of Ultron" On Track For One Of The Biggest Opening Weekends Ever — Everyone knew that Avengers: Age of Ultron was going to be massive at the box office on its opening weekend in the U.S. The question was whether it could match or surpass the $207.4 million debut of 2012's The Avengers, still the largest domestic opening weekend ever.

The First Look At Jared Leto As The Joker Is Insanely Intense — The Suicide Squad wishes you a Happy Anniversary Mr. J! #Joker75 #SuicideSquad @WarnerBrosEnt @DCComics - DavidAyerMovies (@David Ayer) The character still has his traditional pale skin, rictus grin, green hair, and purple garments, but Ayer and Leto have given him a terrifying tattoo-punk makeover.

RT @Bitchuation: Once again, George Miller schools everyone on how to stage action. Couldn't match him if you put a gun in my mouth.
