15 Biggest Box Office Flops Of 2015!

no title

From Star Wars to Jurassic World, 2015 was a year of record breaking box office champions!

But audiences didn't go rushing to the theaters for every film — ESPECIALLY not those unfortunate movies that totally BOMBED at the box office!

A ripped Zac Efron wasn't enough to coerce audiences into seeing his EDM DJ movie We Are Your Friends, and a bit of sophisticated facial hair on Johnny Depp couldn't persuade theatergoers to buy tickets for his flop Mordecai!

Let's not forget Universal's much-dispised remake of Jem & The Holograms, which lost the opportunity to cash in on the nostalgia factor when the studio completely disregarded the premise of the show in the big screen adaptation!

Celebrate the financial failures of Hollywood by checking out the biggest box office bombs of 2015 — and see if YOU can guess the biggest flop of them all!

Universal Is Really Wooing Angelina Jolie To Direct & Star In A Bride Of Frankenstein Remake! Get The Monstrous Deets HERE!

no title

Electrifying!

Universal is pulling out all the stops to reboot its new era of monster movies!

Last month, it was reported that the studio was in talks with Tom Cruise to produce and star in a Mummy remake — which would launch an Avengers-style multi-verse and have cross-over capabilities with other monster movies!

And Universal has already been trying to woo another A-list actor to step to take the leading role of Bride of Frankenstein: Angelina Jolie Pitt!

The By The Sea writer-director-star has been rumored to be in talks to star and direct the film about the undead newlywed, and execs are doing all they can to charge up her enthusiasm!

Most recently, Universal tapped legendary writer David Koepp to pen the script of the remake — whose past work includes writing Spider-Man, Jurassic Park, Mission: Impossible, and War Of The Worlds!

Angie is supposedly waiting to read the script before she makes her decision. If all goes well for the studio, Koepp will craft a script so brilliant that she'll just have to say yes!

We're not sure how we feel about a multi-verse of monster movies yet, but we think Jolie could do amazing things with this role!

What do YOU think about the monstrous movies to come?

Tom Cruise Is In Talks To Star In A Remake Of The Mummy — Which May Be The Start Of An Avengers-Style Universe Of Monster Movies?!

no title

Not every studio is hopping on the superhero movie bandwagon!

It's been reported that to help launch its new era of monster films, Universal is rebooting The Mummy!

And according to Variety, Tom Cruise is in talks to star in the leading role!

Last summer, the studio assembled a team of Star Trek producer Alex Kurtzman and Furious 7 writer Chris Morgan to develop a multi-film universe where Universal's classic monster movie library can be resurrected!

The studio is trying to develop a Marvel or DC Comics style universe for its famous characters — but instead of Iron Man and Thor, it will be Dracula, Frankenstein's monster, and The Wolf Man!

So basically, Universal's answer to The Avengers films is the cast of Hotel Transylvania? LOLz!

As for The Mummy reboot, Cruise will reportedly play a major part in development of the revival. The plot is still under wraps (get it?) other than that it will be set in present day, not like the previous Brendan Fraser-led installments!

Are YOU excited for classic movie monsters to make their way back to the big screen?

This is so sad.

On Friday, Paris was rocked by a series of terror attacks that left over 120 people dead.

The band is a Universal artist, and the 34-year-old served as an international producer manager for Mercury Records. UMG CEO Lucian Grainge issued a statement about Thomas' untimely passing, writing:

"At this point, we have confirmed that Thomas Ayad, an international product manager for Mercury Records lost his life in the attack on the theater. This is an unspeakably appalling tragedy. I cannot even begin to express the depth of my sorrow. On behalf of everyone here at UMG, we extend our most profound sympathies to his parents and all of his friends and family. Today is a dark day. We are a family. Let's support one another as we grapple with the weight of this darkness."

Over the weekend, it was also confirmed that the Eagles of Death Metal's merchandise manager, Nick Alexander, was also killed in the horrific incident.

The 36-year-old's family released a statement, saying:

"It is with huge sorrow that we can confirm that our beloved Nick lost his life at the Bataclan last night. Nick was not just our brother, son and uncle; he was everyone's best friend – generous, funny and fiercely loyal. Nick died doing the job he loved and we take great comfort in knowing how much he was cherished by his friends around the world. Thank you for your thoughts and respect for our family at this difficult time. Peace and light."

The Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney had worked with Nick in the past, and remembered to Rolling Stone:

Filed under: Film FlickersGame

This looks like it's gonna be one action-packed movie!

On Friday, Legendary Pictures released the first trailer for Warcraft, and we're willing to bet that gamers everywhere have absolutely no chill about it!

The film, based on the popular video game franchise by Blizzard Entertainment, focuses on what happens when the worlds of orcs and humans collide!

Video: Watch The Star Wars: The Force Awakens International Trailer!

The clip features breathtaking environments and intense battle scenes, but it looks like the main storyline will center on the two communities coming together to defeat a common enemy!

The production company describes the flick's premise, writing:

"The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders: Orc warriors fleeing their dying home to colonize another. As a portal opens to connect the two worlds, one army faces destruction and the other faces extinction. From opposing sides, two heroes are set on a collision course that will decide the fate of their family, their people and their home."

Universal is slated to release the Duncan Jones creation on June 10, 2016. But until next summer, you can get your fix by ch-ch-checking out the trailer (above)!
