In a large soundstage complex in Conyers, Georgia – a quick ride from downtown Atlanta – a crew of lurching, hobbling, and otherwise swaying monsters mill about, as casually as a pack of monsters possibly can. Some of them are getting their pictures taken for production stills. Others are waiting to shoot a scene. A few are even partaking in the offerings available at the craft services table. But there are a lot of them, and they're all here for Rob Letterman's live-action Goosebumps movie, a family-friendly feature kitted out with all sorts of freaks and creeps, all the better to bring R.L. Stine's intensely popular book series to terrifying (and, if the film is successful, also very funny) life.

Adam Sandler doesn’t do many interviews. He’s completely sworn off print media (“I used to be misquoted all the time”) and appears on-camera only sparingly. I’ve been doing this job for over 14 years, and have never once interviewed the man. He’s traditionally been one of the few actors who didn’t need to talk to the press, and considering his prickly relationship with critics, likely didn’t walk to talk to them either. But, recently in New York, Sandler did agree to an on-camera interview to talk about his latest movie, Pixels, and to address the controversy surrounding his upcoming Netflix movie The Ridiculous Six.

As Ant-Man opens in theaters, we’re once again reminded to keep our big superhero-loving butts in our seats throughout the duration of any comic-book movie’s closing credits. (For Ant-Man specifically, you’re going to want to stay all the way to the very end, for an extra post-credits scene.) It’s become a superhero movie staple to have a scene tacked on to the end of the film that either teases an upcoming sequel or spinoff, pays off an unresolved storyline, or just sprinkles on one last dash of humor. We’ve gone through all the superhero post-credits scenes that have ever made their way to the big screen to rank them.

Denny's
Last month, Denny’s unveiled a special menu of six new items tied to Josh Trank’s upcoming reboot of Fantastic Four. At the time, I was having issues with my press pass for Comic-Con; in a moment of extreme stupidity, I jokingly messaged ScreenCrush editor-in-chief Mike Sampson: “If I don’t get into Comic-Con, I’ll go to Denny’s and eat all of these meals and write about it.” His response: “Uh, now you’re doing that anyway.”
