Inherent Vice gets a new banner

27 November 2014 3:22 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of a limited release in the States next month, Warner Bros. has debuted a new banner for Paul Thomas Anderson’s (The Master) new film Inherent Vice, which we have for you here…

Inherent Vice is the seventh feature from Paul Thomas Anderson and the first ever film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel. When private eye Doc Sportello’s ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a looney bin…well, easy for her to say. It’s the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that “love” is another of those words going around at the moment, »

Jena Malone Talks "Challenging" Goodbye to Hunger Games Character

26 November 2014 6:29 AM, PST | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

It's so hard to say goodbye! Jena Malone opened up to Us Weekly exclusively about moving on from her stint as Hunger Games character Johanna Mason. Malone, 30, played the District 7 tribute in 2013's The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, as well as in both Mockingjay movies. While the role put her through tough physical situations and intense scenes, the actress said the hardest part of playing Johanna was cutting ties with the character. "For me, probably, the most challenging was just the end," she told Us. "Knowing [...] »

2015 Film Independent Spirit Award nominations announced: Birdman, Boyhood, Nightcrawler among leaders

25 November 2014 10:43 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Film Independent Spirit Awards are back with their list of the 2015 nominations. Leading the pack is the existential comedy Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) with a whopping six nominations, including one for actor Michael Keaton and one for director Alejandro G. Iñárritu. Closely following with a solid five nominations are Boyhood, Nightcrawler and Selma.

Boyhood (read our review here) is Richard Linklater’s ultimate character study, which filmed over the course of a decade, creates a time-lapse examination like no other before it. The film follows six year old Texas boy Mason, played by Ellar Coltrane, through his childhood years as he transitions into the life of a young adult ready to take on college. Boyhood received nominations for best film, director, editor, supporting actor and actress. It is bold experiment in film and should prove a serious awards contender.

Nightcrawler (read our review here) marks Dan Gilroy’s directorial debut. »

The Flickering Myth Podcast sits down to not only review the movie, but to also talk about film’s performance in the box office and try to work out why this is the lowest grossing movie of the franchise.

Film Review: ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1’ Shouldn’t Have Been Split in Two

23 November 2014 5:46 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – My issue with the “one movie split into two parts” debate isn’t even about money, which is clearly the main reason why we’ve seen blockbuster films do it like the two-part “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” and now the two-part “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay”.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

My beef is the resulting two-hour film that doesn’t have nearly enough meat to even make it to the end of part one because it’s unnaturally stretched out. The film even awkwardly ends in a splice that should wrap itself up now without making fans pay again a year from now.

Anyone who has read these best-selling books by Suzanne Collins knows the source material for this film is weak. A instant complaint with this film is that “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay” no longer has, you know, The Hunger Games going on. Sure, there’s a new story to take its place, »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 has biggest Friday opening of 2014; although the lowest of the franchise

23 November 2014 6:06 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may be the lowest of the franchise thus far, but The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 has smashed records for 2014 with the biggest opening Friday of the year.

Taking a whopping $55 million across 4,151 screens, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 has eclipsed Transformers: Age of Extinction, which had a Friday total of $41.8 million. With an extra foreign gross, the movie currently sits on $122 million worldwide. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 should take around $125 million over the weekend in the Us alone.

But it’s not all good news for Lionsgate, as despite the good takings, it’s the lowest opening for The Hunger Games series. The original movie opened to $67.3 million while its sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire had a Friday opening of $71 million. Experts have theorised that the dip could be due to series fatigue and the fact this is the first part of a two-part movie. »

17 things you never knew about The Hunger Games

22 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The beginning of the end is nigh for Hunger Games fans – Mockingjay: Part 1 is out in cinemas now, and for our money it's the best in the series yet.

Fans of Suzanne Collins' book trilogy and the Lionsgate adaptations are about as dedicated as they come, as we discovered earlier this month at the film's world premiere in London.

But we've set ourselves the challenge of uncovering a few tidbits that might not be widely known. Below are 17 things you probably never knew about The Hunger Games.

1. The three-fingered salute has become iconic for Hunger Games fans, first seen as a gesture of solidarity in District 12 and later adopted by Katniss as a revolutionary gesture. But its significance reached new levels this year when the salute was adopted as a form of silent resistance by protestors in Thailand this year, and subsequently banned by the military.
