Knock knock! Annabelle is coming home and things are about to get real scary

Toy Story 4 may seem unnecessary but we should know better than to doubt Pixar

The Toy Story series is one of the brightest gems in Pixar’s dazzling crown. The acclaimed franchise not only helped the studio establish itself in its budding stages but also ensured that Pixar cemented and maintained its position as an animation powerhouse.

The upcoming film The Art of Self-Defence seems very much in the same wheelhouse. The movie stars Jesse Eisenberg as a timid man, trying to learn to protect himself in the wake of a seemingly random but violent beating. The first teaser gives scant details regarding the plot ...

Mystery, thrill and Amitabh Bachchan, Badla promises to be as spectacular as Teen

To his credit, he’s kept going strong and still commands a sizeable pull at the box office.

Can Hobbs and Shaw live up to Fast and Furious’ hype?

The first Fast and Furious film had a bunch of street racers ripping off trucks carrying expensive televisions while the last Fast and Furious offering saw our heroes being chased by a submarine. Hence, it is sufficient to say that the franchise has gone nuclear since its debut. Their box office collection is a testament to the worldwide appeal of this action-fuelled franchise. Furious 7 and Fate of the Furious are the highest grossing movies of the franchise. What made these two instalments stand out amongst the rest was the fact that these movies had Dwayne Johnson’s Luke Hobbs come face-to-face ...

Did Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio just steal Spider-Man’s thunder in Far From Home?

He’s alive! He’s alive! The trailer for Spidey’s next adventure titled Spider-Man: Far From Home finally dropped. From the looks of it, our friendly neighbourhood superhero somehow finally came back to life after vanishing into thin air after Thanos infamously snapped his fingers to cut the world’s population by half. Although we don’t know how Peter Parker (Tom Holland) comes back to life (we will know that once Avengers: Endgame hits the theatres), we do know that he will have to at some point. The trailer kicks off with Spider-Man attending a charity event (something I think Aunt May convinced him ...
