Moviegoers are eagerly anticipating Katniss Everdeen’s last act.
“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2,” the final film in the popular series, is the most anticipated fall movie, according to a recent survey by Fandango. That distinction comes with a big caveat. The online ticketer polled 1,000 moviegoers on the films they’re most excited to see between September and November, but that excluded a certain blockbuster-to-be because “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” doesn’t hit theaters until December.
The two most recent “Hunger Games” sequels topped Fandango’s list of most anticipated fall releases, making this the third consecutive year it’s topped charts. The first “Hunger Games” was released in March of 2012.
The last “Hunger Games” attracted 36% of the vote. The second and third most anticipated films were the latest James Bond mission, “Spectre,” which 26% of respondents picked, and the Ridley Scott and Matt Damon collaboration, “The Martian, »

This week got off to a pretty good start at The Movie Bit with the chance to sit down with the eerily talented and highly engaging M. Night Shyamalan. In Dublin to promote his new thriller The Visit, we grabbed a few moments to ask him about his inspiration for his new film, how much of himself he puts into his lead characters, his process in working with child actors on those tough scenes and what masters he draws from when it comes to the creative process. Check it out below! Synopsis: Writer/director/producer M. Night Shyamalan and producer Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, The Purge and Insidious series) welcome you to Universal Pictures’ The Visit.

Real Fake History Takes on The Walking Dead
Real Fake History wraps up its first season with a humorous look at the Battle of Woodbury in AMC's The Walking Dead. Instead of focusing on Rick and The Governor's forces going to war, the show centers »
It.s now become the norm to poke and laugh at anything that M. Night Shyamalan tries his hand at behind the camera. To be fair to the naysayers, that.s only because he.s given them plenty of ammunition. But it shouldn.t be forgotten just how good his breakout Hollywood film was. In fact, The Sixth Sense is still a pop culture phenomenon to this day. That being said, there are still plenty of things wrong with it, as Cinema Sins have so helpfully noted for us. Fair play to the good folks over at Cinema Sins, because while they were able to spot quite a number of flaws and errors with the film, they were also able to admit that it still deserves mad props for its revelations and spooky set-ups. Within the video, they make the very valid point that The Sixth Sense probably wouldn.t »

Labor Day weekend traditionally marks the end of the summer movie season, and the start of the fall season at the box office, with the weekend receipts usually suffering a sharp drop from the sweltering summer months. This year, only two new releases hit theaters over the holiday weekend, EuropaCorp's action-thriller The Transporter Refueled and Broad Green Pictures' A Walk in the Woods, which actually debuts in theaters starting tomorrow, September 2. Both of these new releases will have to contend with Straight Outta Compton, which has taken the top spot for three weeks in a row, and, judging from the projections at BoxOffice.com, it may be a closer race for the top spot than you may think. Regardless of how close the race is, one thing is for certain: none of these new releases will open big, at all.
Straight Outta Compton faced some unexpected competition in the faith-based drama War Room, »
Following the critical drubbing of wonky drama “Seven Pounds” and the box office disappointment of M. Night Shyamalan’s sci-fi clunker “After Earth,” actor Will Smith’s career seemed due for a realignment.
He signed on with a handful of indie directors breaking out into larger territory (Glenn Ficarra and John Requa’s “Focus,” Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s “Collateral Beauty”) and even dived headlong into Hollywood’s superhero revolution (David Ayer’s “Suicide Squad”). Tucked within are a pair of prestige dramas, one from Edward Zwick (“The American Can”) and the other a potential awards player this season (Peter Landesman’s “Concussion”). Let’s look at the latter, which debuted a teaser trailer Monday.
The film tells the story of Dr. Bennet Omalu, a Nigerian-born neuropathologist who was the first to blow the whistle on the NFL and the connection between brain trauma in football players and a sport where guys, »

Universal Pictures is having a banner year. They set some pretty big industry records, wrecking the box office with their franchise sequels and one very sly biopic that no one saw coming. Now, they are ready to unleash their fall and holiday slate, which runs from September to November. They're going to tap out early, with nothing set for release in December. That's okay. They've already done better than any other studio in 2015. They could take the rest of the year off, and it still wouldn't matter.
But they're not going to do that. Traditionally, fall movies are all about Oscar. It's the awards season, and most studios are ready to flaunt their drama-heavy fare. Universal is taking a slightly different approach. While they have a few Academy Award contenders coming our way over the course of the next three months, they seem more interested in keeping the big blockbuster train moving. »
It's not much of a leap to say that M. Night Shyamalan is at his best when he's telling small, contained stories. Give him a family, a farmhouse and some lights in the sky and he can do some amazing things. Give him a huge budget and an anime to adapt, and, well, it doesn't turn out quite so well. That's why we're so excited for Shyamalan's next movie, The Visit, that sees him partnering with low-budget horror maestro Jason Blum (Unfriended, The Purge). Not only does...

Beasts have always provided fantastic source material for horror filmmakers across the ages, whether from the mythical world or the natural. To celebrate the release of Into the Grizzly Maze last week we take a look back at some the biggest, baddest beasts on film…
Into the Grizzly Maze (2015)
Starring James Marsden, Thomas Jane and Billy Bob Thornton, Into the Grizzly Maze tells the story of a sheriff (Jane), thrown into turmoil when a massive rogue grizzly wreaks havoc in a local Alaskan community. Enlisting the help of his estranged brother (Marsden) he enters the labyrinthine Grizzly Maze to track down his missing wife, before the bear does. As the body count mounts, things are only further complicated when an infamous bear hunter (Thornton) enters the fray, determined to take down the bear he’s been waiting for his whole life…

Shyamalan, who has a new movie due in cinemas next month called The Visit, will start shooting the unnamed film in November, with Phoenix leading. That’s all we know about, except for the fact that Jason Blum will produce. Blum and Shyamalan teamed on The Visit, a very low-budget film that was made from just $5 million. The early bizz for that movie suggest that it is a return to form for the director of The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, with the ‘secret movie‘ being picked up for international distribution by Universal. It’s quite a contrast to his last movie, the huge-budget, loss-making After Earth. »

It’s been over a decade since Joaquin Phoenix and M. Night Shyamalan worked together. Since 2004’s The Village, Phoenix’s stock has risen and risen to the point that he’s one of the most interesting leading men in movies. Meanwhile, Shyamalan’s has plummeted to an astonishing depth. But it looks as though Joaquin Phoenix is going to help him out of this slump by starring in the director’s next project. According to Deadline, Joaquin Phoenix is currently in discussions to star in the brand spanking new movie from M. Night Shyamalan. What will the film entail? At the moment, only individuals extremely close to the project know the plot and logline for it. Which, because it’s an M. Night Shyamalan movie, is hardly surprising, as he tries to keep everything as close to his vest as possible before »
It's not much of a leap to say that M. Night Shyamalan is at his best when he's telling small, contained stories. Give him a family, a farmhouse, and some lights in the sky and he can do some amazing things. Give him a huge budget and an anime to adapt, and, well, it doesn't turn out quite so well. That's why we're so excited for Shyamalan's next movie, The Visit, that sees him partnering with low-budget horror maestro Jason Blum. Not only does the trailer look plenty freaky, but early buzz on the movie is fairly strong as well. And apparently Blum and Shyamalan are both happy with the result, too, because they're already planning their next movie together. But wait! It gets better! Not only are Shyamalan and Blum making another low budget genre...

Deadline states that the new film will work on a smaller-scale budget than some of the bigger movies in Shyamalan’s filmography, closer to that of The Visit which cost around $5 million.

It’s been a full 11 years since Joaquin Phoenix and M. Night Shyamalan last collaborated for The Village, a somewhat divisive thriller that failed to match the box office heights of Signs, which drew in over $400 million worldwide in 2002. Nevertheless, fast forward to the here and now and Deadline reports that the pair are close to reuniting for a brand new project.
According to the outlet, Phoenix has entered negotiations to topline the as-yet-untitled film. Granted, his would-be collaboration with Shyamalan isn’t the only potential reunion on the cards, as the director’s latest is to be produced by Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Pictures banner. Over the past few months, Shyamalan has worked in tandem with the horror maestro for his upcoming genre piece The Visit, itself described as a twisted, modernized take on the famed tale of Hansel and Gretel.
Little-to-no information has been released about the filmmaker »

It’s been a good year so far for M. Night Shyamalan, or at least a much better year than the last few. His TV series Wayward Pines had a solid audience, and his new film The Visit has drawn rave reviews as it has been previewed throughout the summer. Now it looks like the writer/director will […]

M. Night Shyamalan seems to be vying for a sort of renaissance, with Wayward Pines earning fairly good reviews and his upcoming film, the low-budget, self-financed The Visit, marking his return to indie horror. Now Deadline reports that Shyamalan is in talks reunite with an old collaborator: Joaquin Phoenix. The premise for the film remains mysterious, as is the case with most of Shyamalan's movies, but production will tentatively begin this fall, with the shoot taking place in Philadelphia. Phoenix last appeared in Shyamalan's The Village (2004), the film held up by many as the point when the filmmaker's reputation took a nosedive. It was a box-office hit, earning over $250 million, but it was also his first film to earn a "Rotten" rating on Rotten Tomatoes. (None of his films has been "Fresh" since.) The year after The Village, Phoenix earned an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of Johnny »

Joaquin Phoenix and M. Night Shyamalan are looking to do another picture together, so apparently someone can stand being around the often-criticized filmmaker for more than one project. Phoenix is in negotiations to join Shyamalan for their third picture (Signs and The Village), with Jason Blum, who just worked with Shyamalan on The Visit, set to be released on September 11, lining up to produce the...
