These past couple weekends have been a battle of ice and fire as Disney’s Frozen and Catching Fire duke it out in the box office. Both films are continuing to pull in impressive numbers, but this weekend Frozen was victorious, having earned the most this weekend. Our new release, unfortunately, did not beat out either film.

Just when you thought you could roll up your whip, hang up your leather jacket, and put away your fedora, here comes some of the more intriguing late-Friday news we've seen in some time: Apparently, Disney has picked up the rights to any and all Indiana Jones sequels.

Given Catching Fire’s explosive debut last weekend, no one expected any of the new releases, even the highly-rated Frozen, to make it to the top of the the charts. Despite a horde of new releases, the latest Hunger Games film is still pulling in numbers that most films are lucky to get on their opening weekend.

We already knew Muppets Most Wanted would take our felt-covered heroes on another caper filled with campy danger, exotic locations, and human cameos, but we weren't exactly sure how. Now, thanks to the Muppets sequel's first full-length trailer, we've got a few ideas.

We received word of a screenwriter change and an official release date last week, so it would seem unreasonable to expect more in the way of official information regarding Star Wars: Episode VII anytime soon. In that spirit, we're more than happy to accept a snapshot from writer/director J.J. Abrams from the Wars workshop -- especially one that seems to confirm the return of a certain beloved character.

Ever wonder what would possess an old cruel-hearted witch to put a sleeping spell on a beautiful young girl? On May 30, 2014, Disney will set out to answer the question with Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie in a live-action origin story about the witch from Sleeping Beauty. Studio synopsis below:

Already the beneficiary of a pair of animated films and a live-action redo, Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book is probably one of Disney's more frequently adapted properties, but that doesn't mean the studio isn't willing to go back to the well again -- and this time, they might have Jon Favreau helping them get the job done.

Today seems to be the day for dodgily sourced rumors to make the news, so we figure we might as well acknowledge the existence of recently circulating reports suggesting that Harrison Ford came to Disney's table with an unusual set of demands before agreeing to sign on for Star Wars:
