Theatrical Releases: The Last Witch Hunter & Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension

JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS || Originally an animated series in 1980s, Universal thought it would drum up some nostalgia by releasing a live action version of “Jem and the Holograms” some three decades later.

In fact, Ellen DeGeneres, who hosted in … Read More Oscars Watch: Chris Rock to Host 88th Academy Awards
