    Every December, the National Film Preservation Board announces the 25 films that will be added to the National Film Registry. These films were deemed to be “culturally, historically or aesthetically” significant, and must have been released at least 10 years ago. This year the bigger films included are Die Hard, Ace in the Hole, Dumbo, Field of Dreams, 4 Little Girls, The Goonies, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, Memento, Only Angels Have Wings, Spartacus, Superman, and Titanic.

    2017 SAG AWARDS NOMINATIONS - Mark Ellis leads the panel in a discussion about the 2017 SAG Awards Nominations.

    As with any new Star Wars movie released by Disney, die-hard fans of the Saga usually want to know what the creator himself, George Lucas, thinks about the new movie - seeing as he is no longer creatively involved in the series. So for those hoping and wishing for the stamp of approval on The Last Jedi, get excited. According to THR, Lucas recently screened the highly anticipated 8th installment of the franchise and told THR through a statement that he thought it was "beautifully made.”

    Paramount Pictures has released a new Annihilation trailer for the highly anticipated follow-up from Ex Machina writer/director Alex Garland. Based on Jeff VanderMeer’s eco-horror novel of the same name, the film stars Natalie Portman as a biologist whose husband is recruited on a secret mission, then comes back unrecognizable.

    Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow have debuted the first trailer for Clint Eastwood’s “The 15:17 to Paris;” a film that tells the real-life story of three men whose brave act stopped a terrorist attacked on a train to Paris, France.

    Why are you all talking weirdly? You're like parodies of real people.

    Lucas said TLJ was "beautifully made" meaning it looks great, but the plot blows chowder.

    "Guess who's Coming to Dinner" just made it for its cultural relativity and none of them mentioned it? I'm shocked on both accounts

    Fox was in debt. The X-Men franchise was generating movie but not a lot compared to what Fox was spending on making them. Planet of the Apes and Alien franchises aren’t huge box office juggernauts and Avatar was nearly 10 years ago

    Deadpool gets way too much praise. Where was the love for kick-ass, a much better film.

    Really Natasha? You would give an award to someone without having seen the movie?  Based on the clips and trailers only????

    yay for disney and the mcu! not to mention star wars :). would venom be included in the mcu now? r rated hopefully, can still be connected. look at the daredevil verse.ff4, x men. oh deadpool. you think universal would cooperate more with the hulk? profitable, most likely. what about the new mutants and gambit? to the mcu i mean.would they tweek the star wars prequels a little like lucas did on the originals? mostly the last 2 perhaps?you can perhaps have more than 1 hero per movie?disney could forego planet of the apes if they have to to not make it a monopoly? the last thing they want to loose is the star wars and marvel stuff right?r rated is good, as previously mentioned kids grow up. deadpool works as it is, please don´t change it... but do incorporate it into x men and the mcu :).i hope no one gets fired that doesn't deserve it.disney/marvel could also do a mcu for kids and one for grown ups as well :).so you get hulu and disney when subscribing to either? 2 for 1?does this mean that the daredevil verse, deadpool, the new mutants, planet of the apes and so on will be on hulu? being more adult.oh alien!.. will ridley get to finish what he´s started? will blomkamp get to do alien 2.5? this is also one disney could possibly forego if they have to for monopoly reasons.disney could maby trade something to universal for hulk and other marvel stuff?i liked eternal sunshine :).wasn't inception based on a donald duck comic? or was that a joke? if not a joke it´s not original right?goonies is pure nostalgia.sideways is a nice little film.fury road was awesome. a sequel to that´s what wb could get on.Ellis is not allowed to vote anymore...i want a white russian now... or black, either or.annihailation looks interesting.would natalie portman come back or be replaced if her character becomes thor in the mcu?love the shows.

    I have been super busy this year and didnt get the chance to see Logan. I finaly have time to watch more movies soon and have rewatched the x-men films in order and am on Apocolapse and then was going to be on to logan. Rocha just spoiled that movie for me. A**

    Getting people that have never acted before in The 15:17 to Paris worries me as well. The “actors” in Gran Torino were terrible, especially the young kid. But I’ll never skip an Eastwood movie so interested to see it regardless if the acting is good or not.

    It's so true that you should never say never. First it was "Sony will never work with Disney"... Then it was "Fox will never work with Disney"... And here we are. Now people are saying Disney will never make a R-rated film. Never say never.

  • Jennifer Ramos
    Jennifer Ramos   3 years ago

    I'll believe in an R rated Deadpool and R rated X-men movies when I see it. Because they might try it, but I highly doubt they'll maintain it. All they care about is money, and they will want to get all the kids in to see their films. Just wait and see.

    If this deal goes, Disney-Fox will have almost 40% of the box office share, that's monopoly and now we need another studio
