Explore Bruce Wayne’s house and the Batcave with this awesome Google Maps Easter egg

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hasn’t exactly been on the receiving end of glowing reviews. It’s seemingly been panned by critics and currently sports a 30% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. In stark contrast, the whimsical and action-packed Deadpool sports a healthy 84% rating.

Nonetheless, it’s a safe bet that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will do reasonably well at the box office, thanks in no small part to a concerted marketing push from Warner Bros. On that note, Google decided to get in on the cross promotion action via a nice easter egg on Google Maps which lets users take a 360 degree tour of Bruce Wayne’s swanky condo and even the hallowed Batcave.

Forget the name of a movie? Just describe it and this scary-accurate site will find it

What was that movie where all the old actors from old action movies get together in a single film and blow up lots of stuff? Which is the one where Brad Pitt plays death?

When Robert Downey Jr. took the lead role in Iron Man in 2008, he became inseparable from the character almost over night. Mike Myers as Austin Powers, Keanu Reeves as Neo, Pierce Brosnan as James Bond — some casting decisions just make sense, but others are mired in controversy, years after the movie releases.

10 of the best surprising twists in movie history

A twist ending can make or break a movie. If it undermines everything that came before it, viewers will get frustrated and lose sight of the fact that everything they saw before the twist was worth watching. On the other hand, surprises can occasionally elevate the material even higher, leaving moviegoers retracing the steps of the movie days or weeks after they’ve left the theater.

Anonymous Oscars 2016 voter reveals what he really thinks of top nominees

If you’re in the movie industry in any capacity, whether you’re a director, actor, special effects guru, or even a sound engineer, the biggest night of the  year is coming up this Sunday. In just a few days, the 88th annual Academy Awards – otherwise known as the Oscars – will take place in Hollywood and will be aired live on ABC beginning at 7 pm Eastern.

For movie fans, the Oscars provides the perfect opportunity to together with friends, order some food and casually complain about how the Academy has no idea what it’s doing. For individuals in Hollywood, however, the event can be a harrowing experience, in part because the process by which awards are given remains somewhat murky, complex, and unclear.
