Cannes Film Festival 2014: Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart Movies Make the Lineup

14 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart could end up in very close proximity next month. The exes are among the scores of stars slated to attend the famed Cannes Film Festival, which runs from May 14 to 25 and revealed its lineup in a press conference Thursday. Pattinson, 27, has two films in contention: The Rover, a gritty drama set in a near-future Australia, and Maps to the Stars, a Hollywood-skewering drama costarring Julianne Moore and John Cusack.

The Hobbit: There and Back Again to be renamed The Hobbit: Into the Fire?

19 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It seems that the third instalment of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy could be set for a title change, with TheOneRing reporting that New Line Cinema has registered a new title The Hobbit: Into the Fire, which could replace The Hobbit: There and Back Again.

It should be noted that at this point, there’s little more evidence to suggest that the closing chapter of Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings prequel will be renamed, and of course Into the Fire could be reserved for an entirely unrelated project, such as a video game tie-in.

The Hobbit: There and Back Again – or whatever it ends up called – is set for release on December 17th, with a cast that includes Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Orlando Bloom, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Lee Pace, Luke Evans, Hugo Weaving and Evangeline Lilly.

The Hobbit: Is 'There and Back Again' Getting Renamed 'Into the Fire'?

16 April 2014 11:58 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Even back when director Peter Jackson's adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit was set to be just a two-part movie, The Hobbit: There and Back Again was always meant to be the finale's title, with New Line Cinema deciding on The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug as the second part of this trilogy that begins with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Today, we have word from TheOneRing.net that the last movie may now be re-titled The Hobbit: Into the Fire.

New Line Cinema has registered this title, although the site's source, dubbed "The Knocking Thrush," claims that studios often register multiple titles while deciding on the final version. New Line previously registered the title The Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies, before it was confirmed in August 2012 that The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and The Hobbit: There and Back Again would be the final two movies. With that being said, »

Dr Who: films of Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy

15 April 2014 2:13 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Alex Westthorp 16 Apr 2014 - 07:00

Alex's trek through the film roles of actors who've played the Doctor reaches Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy...

Read the previous part in this series, Doctor Who: the film careers of Patrick Troughton and Tom Baker, here.

In March 1981, as he made his Doctor Who debut, Peter Davison was already one the best known faces on British television. Not only was he the star of both a BBC and an ITV sitcom - Sink Or Swim and Holding The Fort - but as the young and slightly reckless Tristan Farnon in All Creatures Great And Small, about the often humorous cases of Yorkshire vet James Herriot and his colleagues, he had cemented his stardom. The part led, indirectly, to his casting as the venerable Time Lord.

The recently installed Doctor Who producer, John Nathan-Turner, had been the Production Unit Manager on »

Wamg Exclusive Interview With Katee Sackhoff : Oculus

14 April 2014 3:16 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Oculus, the new horror film co-written and directed by Mike Flanagan, introduces audiences to a new kind of terror: the eerily inscrutable Lasser Glass. This beautiful antique mirror is no ordinary villain. Its seemingly harmless reflections hold a malevolent supernatural force that infects the mind of the viewer, leading to paranoia, distorted visions, and eventually, possession. Recently, I sat down with the lovely Katee Sackhoff, who plays Marie Russell, a mother who tragically lost her life shortly after the Lasser Glass was brought into their new home, to talk about her first role as a mother, the possibility of ghosts, and “road sodas”. Check it out below. 

Ten years ago, tragedy struck the Russell family, leaving the lives of teenage siblings Tim and Kaylie forever changed when Tim was convicted of the brutal murder of their parents.  Now in his 20s, Tim is newly released from protective custody and only »

Hiccup and Toothless the dragon are back in action in the latest trailer for “How to Train Your Dragon 2,” the sequel to the popular 2010 animated pic.

Jay Baruchel returns as the voice of Hiccup, who’s grown up quite a bit since audiences last saw him as a timid and gangly young Viking. Based on the new trailer, the sequel looks to explore Hiccup’s family life – particularly the dynamic between his parents – as well as the unknown realms of the mysterious dragons.

As the island of Berk gears up for the dragon races, Hiccup faces new challenges as he meets his mother, Valka (voiced by Cate Blanchett). Gerard Butler also reprises his role as Hiccup’s father, along with America Ferrera and Jonah Hill as Hiccup’s pals Astrid and Snotlout.

10 April 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There are plenty of things to be excited about in this new "How to Train Your Dragon 2" trailer. Baby dragons, giant dragons, a more mature Hiccup (Jay Baruchel), the introduction of Hiccup's mother, voiced by none other than this year's Best Actress Oscar winner Cate Blanchett, and enough Toothless to make your adorable-meter short circuit.

But you can't have the good without the bad, and lurking in the shadows is a dark force ready to take down the idyllic viking island of Berk. "Something is coming. Something you've never faced before," Blanchett's ominous voiceover warns.

You can find out what that "something" is when "How to Train Your Dragon 2" hits theaters June 20. (Honestly, you can kinda tell from the trailer.)
