‘The Accountant’ Review: Action! Romance! Tax Deductions! This Movie Has It All

Hollywood is so obsessed with superheroes these days they made a superhero movie about an accountant. It’s called The Accountant, and it is indeed about a guy who prepares people’s taxes, looks for deductions, and monitors financial records for fraud. But in his off-hours, this guy is also a master martial artist and a sniper capable of hitting targets a mile away. He also has a secret identity and what amounts to a low-rent Batcave, an Airstream trailer full of weapons and cash, stashed in a storage unit. He’s played by former Daredevil and current Batman Ben Affleck. He doesn’t wear a cape, but he might as well.

Yes, That Is a Poop Emoji in the First ‘Emojimovie: Express Yourself’ Photo

Deadline reports that James Corden and Ilana Glazer of Broad City have been added to the voice cast of Emojimovie: Express Yourself, the animated movie about sentient emoji. Fine. That’s fine. But I’m more interested in the picture that accompanies the article, which features the poop emoji. Smiling. With a bowtie. Hair like the old Kids Crest mascot. Breaking the fourth wall by reaching around the borders of the image with its crap-stained hands. In a children’s film.

War Has Begun in First ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ Teaser

Few franchises have had a more successful or impressive reinvention in recent years as Planet of the Apes. The original series, beloved in its day, petered out by the middle of the 1970s, and the first attempt to revive it, in a 2001 film from director Tim Burton, proved disastrous. But the new prequel series, charting the descent of our human world into a planet full of those damn, dirty apes, has breathed new life into the old property. Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a late-summer hit in August 2011, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes outgrossed it three years later. (It made about $30 million more in the U.S. and a whopping $220 million more worldwide.)

15 Big Changes ‘The Girl on the Train’ Made From Page to Screen

A year before Paula Hawkins’ debut novel hit the stands, Universal secured the rights to what was sure to be the next ‘Gone Girl’ — a mystery thriller about three women and the disappearance that ties them together. Sure enough, ‘The Girl on the Train’ became a bestseller, and the film adaptation, which stars Emily Blunt, Haley Bennett, Rebecca Ferguson and Justin Theroux, hits theaters this weekend. As is typically the case, there are some notable differences between the book and film, but just how many changes were made from page to screen?

‘Jumanji’ Set Photo and Video Reveal the Difficulties of Movie Making (And Doritos)

It’s hard not to get a little bit excited for the new Jumanji movie — with a cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan, they could be making a live-action movie about Thomas the Tank Engine and we’d still watch it. So while we wait for the first official trailer, Johnson and Co. have been keeping us up to date with a steady stream of behind-the-scenes photos and videos, the latest of which offers some insight into the difficulties of filming a big budget movie in Hawaii (spoiler: it’s not that difficult).

Ben Affleck on the ‘Batman v Superman’ Reaction: ‘It Was Interesting’

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was a tale of two heroes and a tale of two outcomes. The film made $873 million worldwide. But it was also a deeply polarizing film, satisfying many hardcore DC fans but putting off others with its dark tone and heroes that I would characterize as, how should I put this, kinda dumb. It will lead directly into the Wonder Woman and Justice League movies, along with an entire DC Extended Universe, but the film was so dark and dour, that it made a lot of viewers less excited than nervous about all the stuff to come.

‘Beauty and the Beast’ Images Reveal First Look at Emma Watson’s Belle, Dan Stevens’ Beast

The wait for the full Beauty and the Beast trailer has reached agonizing levels, as Disney spent the last couple of months promoting the new 25th anniversary Blu-ray release of the classic animated film. Thankfully, we’ve gotten a few sneak peeks at the live-action redo via concept art, behind-the-scenes stills and a clip from a featurette on the aforementioned Blu-ray — and now we have a couple of new photos giving us our first look at Emma Watson’s Belle and Dan Stevens’ beast. But still no trailer. Sad trombone.

New ‘Star Wars’ Trading Cards Give Us Another Glimpse of ‘Rogue One’

The Topps Star Wars: Card Trader digital trading card game has been around since a little before the release of The Force Awakens last year, when the iOS and Android app launched. It became pretty popular, providing a paperless way of trading cards back and forth through smartphones, with about a million users and 60 million individual cards. Ahead of this winter’s release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Topps has released the artwork for six new trading cards, featuring characters from the upcoming film.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children’ and ‘Deepwater Horizon’ Take Charge

Despite dominating the box office last week, The Magnificent Seven took a not-insignificant tumble this weekend, slipping to third place and allowing Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children and Deepwater Horizon to claim the top two spots. However, both newcomers opened below expectations, making this an odd capper to a September that was otherwise full of surprise hits.

‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ Teaser: Captain Jack Is Back (Again)

There’s a famous part of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride in Disneyland where an ominous voice says “Dead men tell no tales!” So I guess this is an adaptation of that line? These Pirates of the Caribbean movies are getting really granular.

The 25 Dumbest Sequel Subtitles Ever

The act of titling a sequel is fraught with peril. Do you go with just the number? Or how about a Roman numeral? Do you try for the ‘Part 2’ thing? Do you just add an ‘s’ to the original title? (Are you adding multiple versions of the title character? That helps.) Do you just eliminate half the title? Do you change the title completely? Or do you dare try for ... a subtitle?
