Our Favorite Faces Of Jake Gyllenhaal

Have Your Say: Which Monster Should Be Next?

As Jordan Vogt-Roberts' Kong: Skull Island is currently raking in the dough worldwide, you can safely assume more creature features are being planned. Indeed, Warner Brothers hasn't made a secret of having a Godzilla sequel AND a Kong vs. Godzilla...

Last night, Emma Stone won the Academy Award for "Best Actress In A Leading Role", and good for her. Plenty of people dug La La Land and loved her performance in it. By all accounts she's a pretty nice person...

10+ Years Later: Is ROBOCOP Still Arresting?
