Summer of 2016 is bringing us a reboot of the popular Ghostbusters franchise, marking a 27-year gap between films. Since Ghostbusters became a cultural phenomenon in the 80s, talks of a third movie had been in the works shortly after the release of Ghostbusters II in the 90s. Dan Aykroyd, the driving force behind the franchise, initially pitched a third installment, but the studio had turned it down due to it's outrageous $150 million budget. For perspective, the 2016 release Ghostbusters has reported to have a budget of $154 million, so the budget for Aykroyd's movie adjusted for inflation would be around $275 million today! Throughout most of the past decade, Ghostbusters III had been in various forms of development with scripts being drafted and Aykroyd continually providing updates on the progress. However, the movie was ultimately scrapped in favor of the upcoming...

Video Game Movies: Super Box Office Bros

Video games have been telling stories since the days of Pong. Sure, a friendly game of table tennis on a Sunday afternoon may not be the next Citizen Kane, but the game still strives to show us an epic competition between two paddles! Other games take us on epic odysseys to a faraway land filled with princesses, dinosaurs, and tiny mushroom people, a la Super Mario Bros., and others, like the stories in Resident Evil, show us our own world, but with more zombies. With the treasure trove of tales to tell, it's not surprising that many games have taken the step into the silver screen. Some entered the movie scene like champs, while others crashed and burned in a glorious blaze of blue Hadouken flames. Since Blizzard has decided to take a stab at it with Warcraft, coming out on June 10th, we got inspired to put together this list of all the internationally released movies based on video games, which shows you which video game movies brought in the most coins and which ones tanked at the box office.

8 Tim Burton Adult Coloring Book Pages

Tim Burton has a directing style that is instantly recognizable. Dark colors, quirky details, and gothic imagery are all motifs found in Burton's movies, and they're all a big part of why so many people are big fans. That's why we thought creating some free adult coloring book pages based on scenes from his films would be such a perfect idea! Yes, most of the scenes are creepy and dreary, but there are definitely plenty of colorful moments in the movies, like the bright green of the trees in Nightmare Before Christmas, the teal and turquoise hues of Cheshire Cat in his version of Alice in Wonderland, and the glowing red flames of the pet store in Pee-wee's Big Adventure. But, even so, better sharpen up those gray crayons, because with characters like Jack Skellington, Beetlejuice, Batman, Edward Scissorhands, and the entire cast of Ed Wood, you'll need 'em!

So we're just a few weeks away from X-Men: Apocalypse hitting the theaters. The second sequel to the X-Men First Class series, which was introduced in 2011, will mark the ninth overall installment in the X-Men films. It's safe to say that we are eagerly anticpating finding out just what will happen to the X-Men when the movie finally drops. Will Apocalypse and his four horseman destroy the fledgling X-Men and rule the world? Or will Professor Charles Xavier and Raven be able to lead their ragtag band of mutants to once again save the world from doom??

We can't wait to find out, but in the interim, we've just having a ton of fun geeking out on everything X related. We were blown away when Empire magazine featured 9 collectible Apocalypse covers in their May 2016 issue, so we decided to assemble the cover collage that highlights the new costume looks and then recreate the design using artwork from our own stacks of vintage comics. With art that shows what the iconic characters looked like in titles such as The Uncanny X-Men, New Mutants, and X-Factor, you can use these interactive slider images to make an in-depth comparision of what each character looks like in 2016 compared to how they appeared in vintage...

Captain America Costumes: Evolution of a Super Soldier

Captain America has worn an incredible number of costumes since the character debuted 75 years ago. These costumes typically alternated between patriotic suits and more modern military uniforms, with some notable exceptions. Of course, his appearance was ultimately in the hands of the artists and writers who worked on the Captain America and The Avengers comic book titles, often for extended periods of time. These included Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, Steve Englehart and Sal Buscema, and Mark Gruenwald, among others. In this infographic, we show how Captain America’s costume has evolved in comics, television, and film. We primarily consider the main universe or continuity, though we do briefly look at The Ultimates alternate universe because of its influences on later...
