The film, adapted from a Nicholas Sparks novel, will celebrate it's 15th anniversary come January, and the actress is more than willing to celebrate with the former cast.

Liam Hemsworth's Latest Instagram With Miley Cyrus Will Take You Way, Way Back

8 September 2016 12:45 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

A photo posted by Liam Hemsworth (@liamhemsworth) on Sep 8, 2016 at 8:00am Pdt It looks like Liam Hemsworth is feeling a bit nostalgic this week! On Thursday, the Australian actor took to Instagram to share a funny throwback photo of himself and his fiancée, Miley Cyrus, on the set of The Last Song. "Throwing it Way back... what a 'blur.' #Tbt," he captioned the out-of-focus snap. Not only do the two look so young, but we can't get over how adorably awkward they seem. After playing love interests in the Nicholas Sparks film in 2010, the two began dating in real life and eventually got engaged in 2012. Though they broke up nearly a year later, the two resumed their relationship earlier this year and are currently in the midst of planning their wedding.

The Weekend Warrior 9/2/16: Morgan and The Light Between Oceans

31 August 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.   

This Past Weekend:

As expected, Fede Alvarez’s thriller Don’t Breathe (Screen Gems), starring Jane Levy and Stephen Lang, won the weekend, but it did way more than we predicted, doing better than most movies released in the last weekend of August, winning the weekend with $26.4 million, pretty much double what I predicted. That’s a pretty great testament to the power of Screen Gems’ marketing campaign and that’s more than double what the movie cost to make. Jason Statham’s Mechanic: Resurrection (Summit/Lionsgate) didn’t fare as well as it opened in fifth place with $7.5 million in 2,258 theaters, about where I predicted. Of the more moderate releases, the Obama date movie Southside with You (Roadside Attractions) took in $3 million in around 800 theaters, »

[Venice Review] The Light Between Oceans

31 August 2016 4:33 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Despite being packaged as the kind of period weepy Nicholas Sparks would kick himself for not coming up with first, it’s clear what attracted a director like Derek Cianfrance to The Light Between Oceans. In the breakout drama Blue Valentine and narratively ambitious follow-up The Place Beyond the Pines, he showed a fascination with relationships fractured by sin and the ripples of regret. Cianfrance finds another thematically fitting story in M. L. Stedman’s hit novel and brings a sense of naturalism in the locale, but he could’ve taken more daring liberties in the adaptation process.

After enduring the horrors of World War I, Tom Sherbourne (Michael Fassbender) finds the ideal amount of isolation as lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, a small island off the western coast of Australia. Despite enjoying this solitude, he quickly falls for Isabel (Alicia Vikander) during his time on the mainland, and, after swift nuptials, »

Movie Review: Matthew McConaughey gets lost in Gus Van Sant’s deathly dull Sea Of Trees

24 August 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The screenplay for The Sea Of Trees, penned by Chris Sparling (Buried), is one of those narrative Rube Goldberg machines where everything falls into place in the unlikeliest, corniest, and worst possible way. Its protagonist is Arthur Brennan (Matthew McConaughey), a science adjunct who buys a one-way ticket to Japan so he can kill himself in Aokigahara, the notorious “suicide forest” at the base of Mount Fuji, only to have his plans upended by Takumi (Ken Watanabe, miscast), a magical salaryman who stumbles out of the bushes with slashed wrists and a bad case of second thoughts. So off they go, the two would-be suicides, trying to find a path out of the dark wood on an odyssey of bad monologues, misguided contrivances, and lengthy flashbacks about Arthur’s alcoholic wife, Joan (Naomi Watts). As it turns out, there is something worse than Nicholas Sparks, the king of morbid romantic »

45 Times The Notebook Turned You Into an Emotional Mess

13 August 2016 | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It's been over a decade since The Notebook hit theaters back in 2004, but Noah and Allie's heartwarming, heartwrenching love story still leaves us reeling. With Summer love and soul mates and a complicated love triangle, the film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks's book triggered all kinds of feelings - and an even bigger crush on Gosling, of course (which almost didn't happen!). Even now, 12 years later, the movie's most quotable moments can make us tear up, so take a look back at 45 times The Notebook touched your heart. Because, as Noah said, it still isn't over! »

New Nerve Trailer Teases A Daring Movie

20 June 2016 3:37 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We’ve had a lengthy run of Young Adult fiction adaptations, and almost all of them have fallen into one of two categories: ‘young adult bucks the system, finds themselves, and saves the world’ (The Hunger Games, The Maze Runner, Divergent, The Fifth Wave), or ‘young adult finds tragic love’ (If I Stay, The Fault In Our Stars, The Spectacular Now, any movie based on a Nicholas Sparks novel). But, this year brings us Nerve, which is potentially something quite different from the usual Young Adult adaptations that flow relentlessly into movie theatres.

Based on the 2012 novel of the same name by Jeanne Ryan, this film takes a large swipe at the current culture of reality shows, YouTube stars and gaming. Nerve is the name of a fictional online game that allows anonymous viewers to manipulate the actions of players for their own entertainment. High school senior Vee (Emma Roberts »

Film Review: ‘Honeyglue’

4 June 2016 5:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For a film about throwing caution to the wind and bucking conventions, “Honeyglue” diligently adheres to clichés, many of them borrowed wholesale from 2002’s Nicholas Sparks adaptation “A Walk to Remember.” Writer-director James Bird’s sophomore feature (following “Eat Spirit Eat”) is a tale of fatally ill girl meets cross-dressing boy that treats progressive ideals and death as equally manipulative dramatic devices. Save for those capable of blinding themselves to its creaky contrivances, audiences will likely have little tolerance for this gravely by-the-books indie.

Morgan (Adriana Mather) is dying of an incurable brain tumor, which has left her father Dennis (Christopher Heyerdahl), mother Janet (Jessica Tuck) and brother Bailey (Booboo Stewart) — who’s of Asian descent, and thus emblematic of the clan’s multicultural mindset — in suspended misery. No matter her dire circumstances, however, Morgan is rejuvenated when, at a nightclub, she meets Jordan (Zach Villa) and immediately falls for him, »

A Walk to Remember: Where Are They Now?

1 June 2016 12:55 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It's hard to believe that A Walk to Remember is more than 14 years old! It seems like just yesterday Mandy Moore and Shane West were making us bawl our eyes out over their star-crossed love story. As what is arguably one of Nicholas Sparks's best movie adaptions, fans still go crazy over the heartbreaking romantic drama. With the movie hitting Netflix this month, it's got us wondering what the cast is up to now.  »

Sean Penn’s ‘The Last Face’ Ripped Apart on Twitter After Cannes Debut

20 May 2016 2:56 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Updated: Sean Penn’s humanitarian romance “The Last Face” is being savaged on Twitter after premiering Friday at the Cannes Film Festival. Commenters on social media are describing the film, which stars Charlize Theron and Javier Bardem, as the worst of the fest. Others are also quipping that the picture is so awful that it destroyed Penn’s relationship with Theron. The duo broke up a year ago.

When critics weighed in, they largely echoed the flash reactions that bubbled up online.

Variety Chief Film Critic Owen Gleiberman faulted Penn for spending so much time on the love story between Theron and Bardem, writing, “no matter how ‘well-meaning’ a director may be, there’s something inherently eye-rolling about being asked to care about the tragedy of African children through the Pov of two lovelorn glamour pusses.”

IndieWire’s Eric Kohn branded it the worst film of Penn’s career, writing »

Cannes Film Review: ‘From the Land of the Moon’

15 May 2016 5:08 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A film prone to cutting on an unfallen tear, “From the Land of the Moon” from French director Nicole Garcia is as syrupy a confection as ever dripped from the pen of Nicholas Sparks (though inspired by the novel “Mal di Pietre” by Milena Angus). Given a gloss of respectability by the tastefulness of Garcia’s style, the genteel photography from Christophe Beaucarne, an unobjectionable score from Daniel Pemberton and a performance of tremulous commitment from Marion Cotillard (as per), as well as by its ineffable Frenchness, that last quality might be enough to bring those who equate “French” with “artistic” to the yard. But even they may find themselves choking on this bonbon during a credibility-assassinating final act reveal.

Cotillard plays Gabrielle, who at the film’s opening is a (slightly unconvincingly) young woman in rural France, nursing a wild crush on the local village schoolteacher — understandable as he »

‘Star Wars’ Regains Top Spot on Disc Sales Chart

12 May 2016 10:07 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Walt Disney’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” returned to the top spot on the Npd VideoScan sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, the week ended May 8.

It marks the third time in the five weeks since the sci-fi sequel arrived on shelves that it earned the top overall spot; “The Force Awakens” had been on top in the two weeks since its debut before ceding the next two weeks to 20th Century Fox’s “The Revenant,” which slipped to No. 3 in its third week.

“The Force Awakens” also held onto the top spot on VideoScan’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart, which it has held for four of its five weeks of availability.

The top new release on both charts was Sony Pictures’ “The 5th Wave,” an alien invasion thriller based on a young adult novel. The film earned $34.9 million at the domestic box office. »

New to On Demand: The Choice

3 May 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

At this point, one has to wonder if author Nicholas Sparks’ novels and their film adaptations are assembled overnight by elves in a workshop somewhere in North Carolina. Sparks has had 11 of his stories made into films, the first being 1999’s Message in a Bottle starring Kevin Costner, Robin Wright Penn and Paul Newman. Sparks’ most culturally and commercially significant book-to-screen installment was 2004’s The Notebook (No. 3 of 11) starring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. It’s been mostly downhill since, with 2014’s The Best of Me and 2015’s The Longest Ride providing cannon fodder for critics and performing … Continue reading →

TV Worth Watching

"The Good Wife" (Sunday on CBS at 9 p.m.)

This is it. The end of an era. After seven seasons of heartbreak (she'll always love you, Will!), headaches, incredibly sharp writing, and powerful performances from Julianna Margulies down to the many amazing guest stars, Alicia Florrick's story is coming to an end on May 8. The series finale, appropriately titled "End," was written by showrunners Robert and Michelle King, and directed by Robert King. Margulies told Entertainment Weekly the finale will be "satisfying, uplifting and sad." The showrunners have Not shot down that Josh Charles return rumor, so here's hoping for some kind of flashback/vision/cameo/thing. Also, here's hoping for more of this, from Alicia and Jason:
