Here’s how crazy this weekend is: Pixar’s Inside Out had the biggest opening for an original, non-sequel of all time...and it still came in second to Jurassic World’s second weekend. There’s literally nothing to ashamed of here.

Will Ferrell is never not busy, which means that he’s never pinned down. He may be a successful solo movie star, but he’s a man of many partnerships, never missing an opportunity to share the screen with a variety of co-stars.

After all, the last time these two teamed up, we got the massively underrated The Other Guys.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s return to the movies after his stint as governor of California has been filled with ups and downs, good films and bad. But one thing has remained consistent – the living legend has started showcasing a savvy online presence and a self-aware sense of humor that has re-endeared him to the digital world.

It’s no secret that Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman is the big stepping stone that will take audiences into the larger DC superhero movie universe. After all, that title promises a fight between the two most popular superhero movies of all time and a dawn of justice.

This is in your hands now.
