Beast dad jokes and a teenage supervillain musical number
Now, I shamelessly love Sky High where we saw superhero teenagers being all teen-like, but when The Descendants started breaking out lyrics like "I'm rotten to the core" and "Mirror mirror on the wall, who's the baddest of them all" to a Disney-fied dubstep-esque lip-sync dance number I was very confused.Read More
But will Jolie reprise the role?
Did you love Disney's new take on Maleficent last year? Well, get ready for more! It looks like Disney is moving forward with a sequel to the blockbuster fairy tale re-telling, and has already hired a writer (and yes, it's a woman)!Read More
Only the best, of course.Read More
Mirror, mirror, on the wall, will this movie suck or enthral?
The new Disney Channel Original Movie Descendants follows the teen kids of Disney's most infamous villains—Jafar, the Evil Queen, Cruella, and Maleficent—as they're sent away from home to a "preppy school" for the first time. If fourteen-year-old alt-kid me had seen this, I would have been all over it.Read More
Because he could do this all day.
In this clearly Sherlock-inspired car commercial, Benedict Cumberbatch follows the clues to the orange car-owning woman of his dreams. (via The Daily Dot)Read More

Senshi and spectres and saviors, oh my!
In my book, there are few cozier ways to spend a Sunday morning than perusing the internet in search of good art. Today's find is the work of artist Jenn So, who sells fannish prints and other goodies at her Society6 shop. I'm especially partial to the Lara Croft one. I also recommend looking very, very closely at the sheep in the last pic featured here.Read More
Paranormal Activity? Apparently that's on us, ladies.
When I'm being optimistic, it feels like there was a slight shift this summer in the way Hollywood perceived women. True, Marvel still fiddle-faddled over a female-led movie, but there was cause for celebration, too: Scarlett Johansson proved her massive box-office draw, the Expendabelles movie progressed with casting news, and Columbia Pictures wants to make a female Ghostbusters reboot. So what caused this small increase in representation?Read More
And the winner is...
There were some good movies that came out this summer. Some bad ones. And a lot of in-between. But which were which? We asked you, our readers, to share your opinions. And now we have the results. 2014 summer movie season, you have been ranked. The TMS writers also share their views on the movies that came out, because we couldn't let you have all the fun.Read More
Amazon Continues To Make Even Bigger Enemies, Is Not Selling Captain America And Other Disney Properties
Hail Hydra, I guess.
In the past few months Amazon has very publicly made enemies with several of its business partners, but the online retailer isn't done sullying its image--fans hoping to order titles such Maleficent, Muppets Most Wanted or Captain America: The Winter Soldier from Amazon are out of luck, at least until Disney cries "uncle."Read More
At San Diego Comic-Con, we caught up with LAIKA CEO Travis Knight, as well as directors Anthony Stacchi and Graham Annable, and stars Elle Fanning, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, and Sir Ben Kingsley to talk about the surprising and inventive process behind The Boxtrolls and LAIKA's LGBTQ representation.Read More

Venture into the pretty pink minefield with us!
How do we create a complex woman character who can give girls a choice in who they identify with, but that Hollywood will still regularly produce? And how can we do it while encouraging the qualities of modern feminism, instead of diminishing them?Read More
Oh dear, what an awesome situation.
Conceptual artists Jerad S. Marantz and Kelton Cram have two things in common: they both worked on The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and they both really enjoy drawing Angelina Jolie with various types of badass horns on her head. You're going to want to see this, because as gorgeous as Maleficent looked in the Disney film, we simply cannot get enough of lady horns.Read More
First Look at Kristin Chenoweth as Maleficent In the Disney Channel’s Descendants Is Angelina Jolie Light
Won't make a "horny" joke, won't make a "horny" joke, won't make a "horny" joke...
Sakes alive. Descendants looks like it's going to be a hot mess in the best possible way. That's Dove Cameron as Maleficent's daughter Mal (really) next to KChen, while the children of (l-r) Snow White's Evil Queen, Cruella de Vil, and Jafar hang out in the background looking like a cross between '90s mall children and the Lost Boys from Hook. They're 2 bad 4 u!Read More
