Nothing spices up a film like romantic vengeance.
'The Winter Soldier' inspires a list of other captains from films.
"Noah," out Friday, is the kind of movie that floats our boat.
Kermit is on the run in “Muppets Most Wanted,” out Friday, after he gets wrapped into a jewel heist. While we know Kermit would never steal a thing, he’s now in the company of other movie criminals on the lam.
In “Son of God,” out Friday, Diogo Morgado plays Jesus of Nazareth, a homeless rabbi who spent a chunk of his childhood as a refugee. Jesus can be quite the box-office draw.
In “Pompeii,” out Friday, a (spoiler) volcano (spoiler) erupts and (spoiler) people run away and/or (spoiler) die. Really, nothing adds heat to a movie like a volcano.
In “Labor Day,” out Friday, Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin celebrate the end of summer with brats and beer. Kidding — he’s an escaped convict who threatens her and her son. It’s just as festive as some other holiday-pegged films.
In “Gimme Shelter,” out Friday, Vanessa Hudgens plays a teenager named Apple who is pregnant and homeless. She feels alone, but there are plenty of movie teens who find themselves in the family way before they can vote.
In “The Invisible Woman,” Felicity Jones plays Nelly Ternan, the woman behind Charles Dickens. WAY behind, hidden from everyone — especially his wife. Welcome, Nelly, to the company of cinematic side dishes.
In “August: Osage County,” there’s a lot of talk about how hot it is. Because it takes place in August. In Oklahoma. And in Oklahoma, when it’s hot, it’s HOT — just like the scorching settings of these other films.
