Any official movie logo is only one of dozens that was created. For those who like to see how this particular portion of the movie sausage is made, a new interview with artist Fede Ponce should prove enlightening … especially when you see how many of his ideas for the Iron Man logo didn’t make the final cut.

Sony
There’s one reason and one reason only why we’re getting a Ghostbusters remake in 2016 instead of an actual Ghostbusters 3 five years ago.

Sometimes that means popping up in a film franchise that he seemingly had zero desire to revisit. Now, Murray explains his reasons for joining a new Ghostbusters movie he was so vocally against.

Universal
All summer movie seasons end with a whimper and 2015 was no different.
