Oh Baby! The 10 Creepiest Pregnancies In Pop Culture History

View Photo Gallery

Pregnancy is supposed to be a beautiful time. Lots of cuddling with your baby-daddy (or same-sex partner, whatever your sitch is), all the ice cream you want, attention from strangers. Not to mention the anticipation of delivering your very own, ultra-special baby human into the world. All true, but it’s also sort of scary. Who will this kid be? Will the delivery be a bloody, medieval mess? Will the child turn out to be a homicidal killer? Will you be expected to love it anyway? No wonder an entire sub genre of film and TV horror has been devoted to creepy-evil pregnancies (like Rosemary’s Baby and Village of the Damned). When Halle Berry’s new TV series, Extant, debuts on July 9th — where she plays an astronaut who returns from space, inexplicably pregnant, after a year away — we’ll get a taste of the latest version of maternity terror thrills.

The Biggest Summer Blockbusters Of The Past Ten Years

Summer is finally here and that means the blockbuster season is underway. With the heat rising outside, movie studios are hoping fans will go inside to watch one of hundreds of films opening between now and August. While it’s too early to determine a winner of the summer blockbuster season, X-Men: Days of Future Past is making a strong showing with a $90 million opening weekend and a total gross of over $124 million so far in North America. But coming up are the new Transformers flick, How to Train Your Dragon 2 and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

All of these films have potential to score big, especially when you look back on the past summer blockbuster season. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen raked in $402 million in 2009. Superheros in the form of Spidey (Spider-Man 3) and Bruce Wayne (The Dark Knight) topped the box office in 2007 and 2008, respectively. And fans love animated films, as Shrek 2 and Toy Story 3 proven in the past. Click through the gallery of past summer season’s biggest hits. You may be surprised what films topped the box office or realize that things are all too familiar. (We’ll call it the sequel syndrome.)

Over the course of seven films, a number of mutants have been featured in the X-Men universe.

pulpmain

In 1994, director Quentin Tarantino premiered a instant-classic film, Pulp Fiction. The crime movie did several unexpected things that year: it revitalized the careers of John Travolta, Bruce Willis, and Samuel L Jackson, launched long-standing accolades for Tarantino, and helped cultivate an extended Easter Egg of pop culture references that would appear in not only Tarantino films but also in TV, music and other films alike. As the film celebrates the 20th anniversary of the film’s debut at the Cannes Film Festival, VH1 digs up all the fun facts that fans may have not known about the landmark Tarantino film. Read more…

All The Cities Destroyed By Godzilla

godzillamain

Godzilla is one destructive creature. Over the course of 28 Japanese films and four American films, the monster (and the other kaiju that have appeared in the franchise) has nearly destroyed 19 cities in addition to fighting in space and underwater. Whether it’s intentional or not—sometimes Godzilla is nearly protecting us from alien creatures bent on destroying Earth—cities fall under the brute strength, physical size and eternal frustration of the mutated amphibian.

In the new film, starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen and Ken Watanabe, the creature expands his destruction count by rampaging Honolulu, Las Vegas and San Francisco. All three cities are a far cry from Tokyo, a city that has been destroyed more times than an other location in the long-running franchise. In a handy little guide to destruction, VH1 has compiled a complete list of cities destroyed by the monsters.
