Movie nerds love to wax poetic about their favorite film houses — especially when a list like this one from Men’s Journal comes along, in which they rated the top 20 movie theaters in the world. From Paris to Los Angeles and Sydney, Australia, this selection of cinemas ventures around the globe, but gives the number one spot to the Spanish Colonial Baroque-designed Castro Theatre in San Francisco. Built by Timothy L. Pflueger in 1922, the 1,407-seat theater has a grand facade and sits in the heart of the largest (and one of the oldest) LGBT communities in the United States. The Castro even hosted the world premiere of Gus Van Sant’s Oscar-winning movie Milk — about the first openly gay elected official in California, Harvey Milk. Check out this 1998...

When we last checked in with megaproducer Jerry Bruckheimer, he was moving from his longtime post at Disney over to Paramount and lining up multiple new projects. Today, we bring you an update on three notable sequels Bruckheimer has in development. Eddie Murphy and Brett Ratner appear to be moving forward rapidly with Beverly Hills Cop 4 following a no-go on an attempted TV show. “We're in the process of getting the script finished. Paramount is very excited about making it, Eddie is very excited, Brett Ratner is excited about doing it, so I think we're moving forward. Hopefully we'll start end of summer, beginning of fall and get rolling on it. We're going to take Eddie back to Detroit - he's going to be in Beverly Hills and we take him to Detroit...

The 2014 Cannes Film Festival slate has officially arrived, and it’s enough to make a cinephile salivate. Where else can you find the best of the best of filmmaking — including Atom Egoyan, Jean-Luc Godard, Mike Leigh, Xavier Dolan, Wim Wenders, David Cronenberg, and Alice Rohrwacher — together at the same party? Opening the festival is Olivier Dahan’s biopic Grace Of Monaco starring Nicole Kidman as the movie star turned Princess. The story centers on her crisis of marriage and identity during a dispute between her husband, Prince Rainier III, and France's Charles de Gaulle in 1962. This week we told you about David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars, featuring Mia Wasikowska, Julianne Moore, John Cusack, and Robert Pattinson in a tale about a...

In a new interview with Forbes, Zack Snyder talks more about the upcoming Batman vs. Superman, addresses the kind of Batman we'll see in the movie and teases that first image of the new Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) standing alongside Superman (Henry Cavill), which he says exists and is currently hanging on his office wall. On when he decided to make the Man of Steel sequel a Batman vs. Superman movie: "I gotta be honest, it definitely was a thing that… after Man of Steel finished and we started talking about what would be in the next movie, I started subtly mentioning that it would be cool if he faced Batman. In the first meeting, it was like, “Maybe Batman?” Maybe at the end of the second movie, some Kryptonite...

You may have heard that The Grand Budapest Hotel recently became the highest grossing film of Wes Anderson's career. That's great and all, but here's the rub: the movie is still in theaters. Just because it's already broken a record for the beloved filmmaker doesn't mean people should stop seeing it. And so to remind those who haven't enjoyed this delightful, macabre comedy yet, we've been given four character posters from the film to premiere. And not only that, but we've got character-specific Spotify playlists to go with them. And what's extra cool is that these playlists were created by the film's music supervisor Randall Poster, so they're very in sync with the movie. Check 'em out.   The Grand Budapest...

A few years ago Australian director David Michôd made waves with his gritty drama Animal Kingdom, about a young man caught up in the middle of his criminal family. Not only did that film go on to critical acclaim, but it even made an appearance at the Oscars when Jacki Weaver was nominated for Best Supporting Actress (Meliaa Leo won for The Fighter). Now Michôd is back with another film, The Rover, and it looks like it may be one of the most gripping films of the year. Starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, The Rover is a twist on your standard postapocalyptic story. It's not set in some zombie- or virus-stricken world, it just takes place a decade after society as we know it has collapsed. It then follows a nomadic man (Pearce) who is seeking revenge...

Jupiter Ascending: The next sci-fi movie from the Wachowskis is heading to theaters on July 18, and a new image from Jupiter Ascending confirms it can't come soon enough.

A sequel has been in development since 2001; David Berenbaum (Elf) is writing a new script, which has attracted the interest of Columbus and Williams. [The Hollywood Reporter]   The...

Few actors have been as adventurous or as weird, and few have risen to stardom so fast. Johnny Depp's filmography is as strange and varied as anyone's. With Transcendence hitting theaters this week, it's time to look back over the career of Johnny Depp and craft the definitive ranking of his performances. Here are our rules: only major roles are eligible (so no A Nightmare on Elm Street or The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) and voice work in animated movies won't be ranked (so no Corpse Bride or Rango). The Brave is not ranked because it's still unavailable and unseen in North America. From worst to best, here are the 29 major Johnny Depp performances, ranked in quality. 29. Mad Hatter (Alice in Wonderland) This is it -- the nadir of Johnny Depp. No...

For most of the past year, comic book movie fans have been taking the existence of a Justice League film for granted, even though the existence of such a project has yet to be officially confirmed. It's kind of hard to fault the reasoning, mostly because of A) the massive, influential success enjoyed by Marvel Studios across multiple films and mediums, B) Man of Steel had a number of comic book-centric Easter eggs peppered throughout it, and C) a sequel to that same film has been announced that features non-Superman characters like Wonder Woman, Alfred Pennyworth and, of course, the Batman.   DC Universe Progress After going from one film that introduces a new Superman to a direct sequel involving some of his most famous fellow DC Comics...
