Movie Review: "A Monster Calls" (Rated PG-13)

(NEW YORK) -- “A Monster Calls” is an engrossing tale about the stress a British boy named Connor (Lewis MacDougal) endures during a perfect storm of pre-teen angst and misery. Connor’s single mother (Felicity Jones) is dying, he’s bullied at school on the daily, and his strict grandmother (Sigourney Weaver) is pressuring him to accept his mother’s fate. Situations like these could mentally and physically wear down even the most well-adjusted adult, let alone the average 12-year-old, who doesn’t usually have the tools to deal with such dire situations. But what Connor does have is the imagination of a brilliant…

And late last year, Fisher came back to the galaxy far, far away in a different way. In Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Lucasfilm's first standalone movie set in the era of A New Hope, the tech and visual teams working on the film were able to recreate not only villain Grand Moff Tarkin, since Peter Cushing has long since passed away, but a youthful Princess Leia for a crucial scene. The young Leia cameo makes sense,…

Specifically, more than 32,000 people have signed Utah-based Cody Christensen's Change.org petition to have Disney formerly recognize the adopted daughter of Alderaanian royalty from George Lucas' galaxy far, far away.

(NEW YORK) -- Adam Driver has become one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood thanks to his role as the Darth Vader's fanboy grandson Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Maximum Effort: Ryan Reynolds Credits Wife Blake Lively with Keeping Him "Sane" During "Deadpool"

(LOS ANGELES) -- His red-suited alter-ego Deadpool may be virtually indestructible, but Ryan Reynolds confesses he was quite fragile filming his superheroic labor of love.  Reynolds spent years developing the project, and despite his being well-liked, he'd suffered a string of box office failures, including the lead role in the comic book adaptation Green Lantern. Safe to say, the pressure was on. "I never, ever slept. Or I was sleeping at a perfect right angle -- just sitting straight, constantly working at the same time," the 40-year-old actor and father of two tells Variety. "By the time we were in [post-production], we'd been to Comic-Con,…
