New Year’s resolutions are a time to work towards a transformation of your body and/or your life. To honor these goals, this month we’re going to look at transformative roles in film. This week we look at some prominent examples of actors who had to gain weight for roles.

Dark Universe’s Future Seems Dark

The Dark Universe seemed to be ready to rock and roll. Full of A-List stars, writers, and directors. However now it looks like we have already shut the door on the universe.

The Mummy Failed Due to Universal’s Bad Strategy

Universal Studios is hoping that their new “Dark Universe” will be the next MCU. So far, they’re off to a weak start.

The movie’s poor performance highlights a major miscalculation that will continue to derail the “Dark Universe” unless Universal changes its strategy.

What Would Superman’s Creators Think About Man of Steel?

Many would say Superman has changed a lot in the 75 years since his first appearance. After being rebooted by DC Comics and given more emotional depth, the super hero received an effects-heavy sci-fi overhaul in the form of Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. Comic book fans wonder what Superman creators, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, would thinks of the new directions their super hero has moved in since they brought him to life in Action Comics #1.

Eric’s Movie Review: Man of Steel

Just like many children of the 1970s, I had a hard time accepting what I saw in the first trailers for Man of Steel. How dare someone come along and try to tell me someone else could be Superman besides Christopher Reeve! I do love those movies with all my heart (yes, even the third and fourth ones), but it's been 35 years since we've really seen a new and truly unique vision of the world's first super hero. As much as I protested, the time had come.
