    Doctor Strange Benedict Cumberbatch Avengers: Infinity War MovieSpoon.com

    It’s impossible for actors to be in two places at once. Right? Then how is Benedict Cumberbatch going to film both Avengers: Infinity War and The Current War? Benedict Cumberbatch is in high demand, and it almost cost him the role of Doctor Strange. Marvel president Kevin Feige really vouched for Cumberbatch, however, and even moved the shoot of Doctor Strange to accommodate him. Now his …

    ‘Hidden Figures,’ ‘La La Land,’ ‘Sing,’ 1-2-3 at Box Office

    Hidden Figures Box Office MovieSpoon.com

    It took three films to push Rogue One: A Star Wars Story from its perch at the top of the revenue charges. This is kind of like having a third party candidate split the vote, turning the tide against one of the better options. In this case, Hidden Figures was able to claw to the top of the leader board with …

    Movie Review: ‘Live by Night’ is a Ben Affleck Snoozer

    Live by Night Movie Review MovieSpoon.com

    Ben Affleck’s newest flick is less than impressive. Read our movie review of Live by Night to find out why the movie flopped: Ben Affleck looks good in a suit and fedora, but he seems rather stiff in the role of 1920s gangster Joe Coughlin in Live by Night. His expression is constantly mute, but not with some cold-hearted approach to violence. …

    ‘The Room’: The Worst Movie Ever Made Now Has the Worst Ads

    The Room Tommy Wiseau MovieSpoon.com

    We saw it happen in The Producers. Making a movie (or in The Producers’ case, a play) so bad that it gets a ton of publicity and ends up being a hit could be possible.

By now many film fanatics have heard of The Room, a 2003 romantic …
