'Metal Gear Solid' Star David Hayter Goes Bad In 'Devil's Mile'

8 Action Stars Over Sixty We Want For 'Expendables 4'

It is our firm belief that "The Expendables" should continue for at least seven more sequels, enough that Stallo...

"Fifty Shades of Frozen" made its debut just over a week ago, and the video features the audio from the official "Fifty Shades Of Grey" trailer but with scenes from the Best Animated Feature Oscar-winner.

While Anna takes on the role of Anastasia Steele in the trailer, it's Prince Hans, not Kristoff, who gets the part as the businessman with the S&M fetish, Christian Grey.
