“Monsters University” is sweet. It’s life-affirming. It will make you laugh.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Man of Steel" leaped over box office expectations in a single weekend.
NEW YORK (AP) — Thousands of screaming fans brought Times Square to a standstill as they waited to catch a glimpse of Brad Pitt at the premiere of his new thriller, "World War Z."
The seemingly exhausted gross-out comedy genre gets a strange temporary reprieve with “This Is the End,” an unlikable but weirdly compelling apocalyptic fantasy in which a bunch of young stars and stars-by-affiliation jokingly imagine their own mortality.
Oh Superman, what did you do to deserve Zack Snyder?
Among the townspeople fleeing Smallville and downtown Metropolis in the upcoming “Man of Steel” film is Marengo native Shawnah Donley.

BURBANK, Calif. (AP) — In the upcoming film "Man of Steel," Superman faces off against ruthless outcasts from his home planet. The last son of Krypton also encounters a more realistic force of nature on earth: a deadly tornado.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — This scene isn't in the movie, but it might have been fitting if "The Internship" had ended with stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson wearing ruby red shoes while clicking their heels and dreamily whispering, "There's no place like Google; there's no place like Google."
Joss Whedon's bare-bones "Much Ado About Nothing" is the cinematic equivalent of Shakespeare in the parking lot – and proof, again, that it doesn't take much doing to bring Shakespeare to life.
LOS ANGELES – Characters are frequently urged to "release the beast" in "The Purge," a high-concept home-invasion shocker set in a future where one night a year, all crime is legal. But what should be a clammy exercise in claustrophobic, queasy tension becomes, in the hands of writer/director James DeMonaco, an underpowered compendium of over-familiar scare tactics and sledgehammer-subtle social satire. The intriguingly nightmarish premise may well rustle up a decent opening weekend for a picture that comes with the imprimatur of producer Michael Bay before the lukewarm word of mouth hastens its trip to DVD and VOD.

NEW YORK (AP) — Some might find it strange that Joss Whedon's first movie since "The Avengers" — his 2012 megahit about a team of Marvel Comics superheroes — is an independent adaptation of Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing." But it makes perfect sense to him. The man who created TV hits like "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and its spinoff "Angel" says his dramas all have a bit of the Bard in them.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — With its supercharged muscle cars, "Fast & Furious 6" raced to first place at the box office for the second consecutive weekend.
With “After Earth,” Will Smith proves not only that someone in Hollywood is still willing to work with M. Night Shyamalan, but that someone might still have a reason to work with him.
Hollywood films and magic shows have something in common: You pay your money, and you want to believe. Even if it’s exceedingly hard to do.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — After a lackluster start to the year, the movie industry enjoyed its most robust Memorial Day weekend ever at the box office, with "Fast & Furious 6" speeding to the top spot.
