If so, you've likely spent a minor fortune on movie tickets, something AMC Theatres and MoviePass aim to solve. The two have recently teamed up to provide a subscription plan of sorts that'll let movie-goers see one movie every day for a flat rate that works out to substantially less than buying individual tickets -- assuming you see quite a few movies a month.

Leak: MPAA calls Google ‘childish’, blames them for piracy

Pirated content is a hotly debated topic, but the stance from film production houses is pretty clear: they’re not into it.

Star Wars 7 lightsaber arguments miss the point

Star Wars 7 lightsaber arguments miss the point

When I woke up this morning, there was an early Christmas gift waiting for me on my phone. A new Star Wars trailer — a teaser, really — was released today, apparently JJ Abrams attempt to cause Black Friday accidents as we lazily sauntered around stores looking for deals. I was left with a feeling of “oh, neat, it’s all the things I expected”. There are Storm Troopers, the Millennium Falcon, X-Wings, and a Sith lord. There’s also a new light saber.

Universal Pictures nabs Steve Jobs movie

Last week, Sony put its anticipated Steve Jobs movie in turnaround, and rumor had it Universal Pictures would be stepping up to take over.
