They're trying to say that the box office totals of 2 movies (that she happened to have a part in) is the reason why she made 1 billion this year, they didnt include what SHE made personally. SO yeah, it's a clickbait article with no facts as to how she's worth a billion dollars this year.

With the year almost finished, I thought I would round off my top ten films of 2016 and inject some positivity before the year officially sods off.

10. Star Wars: Rogue One
9. Deadpool
8. Star Trek: Beyond
7. Hunt for the Wilderpeople
6. Zootopia
5. Kubo & The Two Strings
4. A Monster Calls
3. The Jungle Book
2. The Nice Guys
1. Arrival


Understandably, three of these films have Jurassic Park/World connections. Rogue One/Star Trek Beyond have Giacchino composing the scores, 'Wilderpeople' has Sam Neill his best character since Alan Grant, and finally J.A. Bayona's A Monster Calls officially ended any shred of doubt I might have had for Bayona directing the next Jurassic film, I can safely say that he is the director who can deal a well-earned emotional journey that I the JW sequel can and hopefully will benefit from.

I would personally rate it a 9/10; a really strong film visually and musically, a lot of characters whom you feel sympathy for, as well as plenty of surprises and great storytelling. The beginning was a bit rocky though, and it takes a few minutes before it finds its footing and gradually builds up to be a truly great film.

I'm not on the "hate bandwagon" that accompanies most Marvel releases at all, it has a lot of great aspects going for it, but it's flaws have stood out to me since first showing, namely that I found fault with both Tony and Cap, which is a real bummer because the last person in the MCU I would expect to compromise their values was Steve Rogers. I'm not going to go too deep into that. Long story short, I simply found ten movies that I consider better.

Translation: I'm ready for my big comeback.

I just think that her career has been destroyed beyond repair. Granted, not all of it is her fault since she had shitty parents, but much it was. And given how Hollywood never really gives help to young actors/actresses, that didn't help. I'm surprised that she's even still alive.

Chris will probably bounce back as a fan-favourite with GotG Vol. 2, and he will probably be a welcome presence and solid action hero in Jurassic World 2. Apart from some butt-hurt SJWs or fickle fanboys, nobody's really gotten sick of Chris Pratt and they will probably be happy to see him in other films after Passengers.

I was thinking of going to Passengers, it's a good thing I opted against it, since it sounded similar to Contact (which I didn't care for either, having only seen it once), so it's really not my type of movie. I was so impressed with seeing the trailer for GotG Vol. 2 when I went to Rogue One that I went and bought the original on Blu-ray, even though I'm not that much into Superhero and/or Marvel movies (though I do watch Flash and Arrow on the CW. I loved that four series crossover a while back, although I don't watch Supergirl or Legends of Tomorrow that much). Even though I'm still not big on that dinosaurs on the mainland plot idea (I may never like it), I'll still go see Jurassic World 2, even if just out of curiousity. Who knows? I might like it as much as Jurassic World (I guess I'll find out soon enough). Very Happy

The upcoming Barbie movie with Amy Schumer will be released the week after Jurassic World 2/Jurassic Park 5.

If it took 2-3 weeks for Insider Out to finally knock JW off the box office hill, then this movie has no hope at all. One would think that Tom Rothman would be smarter then this. I expect this from Amy Pascal, but not Rothman.

I'm more of a TV series person (literally go through million hours per year) and once again only saw couple films that came out during the year. Nothing great though Little Sister was pretty solid.

Independence Day: Resurgence 4/10
Bad Santa II 6/10
The Neon Demon 6/10 (artsy fartsy end ruined it)
The Huntsman: Winter War 6/10
The Witch 7/10
Little Sister 8/10

Still want to see: Silence, Star Trek Beyond, Rogue One (only because "have to I guess"), Girl on the Train and Arrival.

Michael Lynton is no longer the CEO and Chairman of Sony Pictures.

I wonder if they'll promote Rothman to that position.

I noticed that RLM included Wonder Woman in their "Endless TRASH" clip/gif ... as if that movie needed more heat. No

Sure, I read that recent article saying it was "discombobulated", and given that Suicide and BvS were subject to meddling during and after production, but I am sick of this endless cycle.

I don't disagree that RLM gives the DCCU too much heat, but in fairness, WB does have have to carry a lot of that blame themselves considering how they rushed things.

I'll give you that, they've built this pyre and this will be the year that determines whether it lights up and takes the DC Universe with it. If these rumours prove accurate but the film still makes money, it will ultimately bleed into Justice League and cause that film to potentially deflate and not be the $1 billion hit they want it to be. And the reason why I'm starting to believe it is because, as well as WB's poor track record, is because why would anyone fabricate a story like that?

*sigh*

Patrick Stewart will voice the crap emoji in Sony's 'Emoji' movie.

Part of me wonders if he knows it will suck, but if he wants a 'President Koopa' experience where he is the best thing about the movie like Dennis Hopper was (and still is) with Super Mario Bros.

As a fan of the series, you'd be surprised. I mean, I can't say you'd like any of the sequels, but the most recent movie just came out last year, and it was actually really good. It dealt with a new variety of the Grabboids in Africa, and was really well done. The third sequel was just so-so, while the fourth is really forgettable as it is an old west prequel with mostly the same actors playing ancestors of the series characters. I'm just surprised their still moving forward with films, as Kevin Bacon is rebooting the series as a TV series as well. (There actually already was a Tremors TV series, taking place after the third Tremors film. It was short lived.)
