The news was made official this evening.

Amazon Prime Video is the Netflix you used to know

Amazon Prime Video is the Netflix you used to know

Netflix isn't what it used to be, at least if you're located in the US. Sure, you could order DVDs and probably get just about anything you want, but that seems downright archaic and slow and you may not even own a DVD player at this point, never mind watching stuff on mobile. Netflix is rolling out a ton of original content and that's great, but the licensed content library is more or less dwindling in equal measure. What happened to all the great movies and TV shows? They're chilling on Amazon Prime Video.

It’s not your imagination: the US and UK Netflix libraries suck

It’s not your imagination: the US and UK Netflix libraries suck

Netflix users were up in arms when the service banned VPNs, and for good reason: depending on where you live, the Netflix library may be pretty crappy. The complaints are most common among US and UK users, and we now know why -- the libraries available to both those regions have the lowest number of top movies. A study looking into the numbers found the UK has the lowest among them all.

Logan movie trailer is Old Man Logan (sort of, kind of)

Logan movie trailer is Old Man Logan (sort of, kind of)

The first full Logan trailer is out, and Hugh Jackman's final hurrah as Wolverine looks bleak. Bleak in a way we did not expect Marvel would be capable of. In the same way Guardians of the Galaxy broke with superhero movie conventions, Logan is here. In the same way Deadpool brought superhero movies to adults with actual blood, guts, and adult language, Logan is here.

Flux Capacitor Keychain does nothing at 88mph

Flux Capacitor Keychain does nothing at 88mph

One of the coolest of all the '80s movies was "Back to the Future". The first films was great, the second and third left a bit to be desired though. One of the things I remember most about the movie from my youth was the DeLorean, because if you are going to build a time machine, you should do it with style. I also remember the flux capacitor vividly.

‘Dark Web’ movie about Silk Road being written by the Coen brothers

‘Dark Web’ movie about Silk Road being written by the Coen brothers

The last few years of investigations into the Silk Road — the network of black market websites where sales of drugs, weapons, and much more took place — along with the conviction of its founder Ross Ulbricht, are getting the Hollywood movie treatment thanks to Fox. The film is currently dubbed — wait for it — Dark Web, and none other than the Coen brothers, the duo behind acclaimed hits Fargo, No Country for Old Men, and more, have been tapped to write the screenplay.

Hellboy 3 movie probably isn’t happening

Hellboy 3 movie probably isn’t happening

There’s some sad news circulating for Hellboy fans: the greatly anticipated (read: hoped for) third installment in the movie franchise, Hellboy 3, probably isn’t happening. Such news comes from Ron Perlman himself, who indicated in a recent interview that conversations about making the movie have been dropped and that everyone is busy with other things. “We don’t talk about that anymore,” Perlman said, speaking about the possibility of a Hellboy 3 movie. That leaves little hope that we'll see the trilogy brought to a proper end.

Power Rangers movie gets dark & serious in debut trailer

Power Rangers movie gets dark & serious in debut trailer

The New York Comic-Con is being held this weekend, and movie studio Lionsgate has used the event to premiere the first trailer for the upcoming Power Rangers movie. The two and a half-minute video does a great job of setting up the superhero story many of us watched on TV growing up. Many of the familiar elements are there, including the group of five outcast/troublemaking teens that discover a meteorite and gain powers. However, it's clear the goofiness of the early '90s show has been replaced by Zack Snyder-influenced levels of serious darkness.

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 teaser trailer (finally) released

We've known for years that Disney has been working on a fifth installment in its Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise, but any actual look at the film hasn't been forthcoming thanks to delays. That has finally changed, with Disney publishing the first teaser trailer for the upcoming flick. Unlike most teasers, it's not just a few seconds of footage with long drawn out music intros -- there's some actual substance here, and it looks great.

Portal movie info may be coming ‘soon’ says J.J. Abrams

It seems the Portal movie is still happening (albeit slowly), and we may be hearing an announcement about it in the near future, at least according to comments made recently by J.J. Abrams.
