Rupert Grint Thinks Ron Would've Divorced Hermione by Now

8 February 2016 8:57 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

You never could trust that Ron Weasley to stick around. Harry Potter's best friend was known to get jealous and even walk out when the going got tough ... but then he did always come back in the end. J.K. Rowling's novels closed with Ron and Hermione Granger married with two kids, but actor Rupert Grint doesn't think they would still be together today.

While at Universal Orlando for the recent Harry Potter celebration, Grint and fellow castmates talked to Huffington Post about the future of their characters.

Here's the Ron section:

Huffington Post: If J.K. asked you where you'd like your character to be off to, what would you say? Swing for the fences, or go as crazy as you'd like with what you'd be doing in that universe.

Grint: [laughs] I would expect Ron has probably divorced Hermione already. I don't think that relationship would have done very well. »

'Kung Fu Panda 3' Repeats Box Office Win with $21 Million

7 February 2016 11:09 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The hit animated sequel Kung Fu Panda 3 ended the first month of 2016 on a high note at the box office, taking in $48 million in its opening weekend. In the first frame of February, this adventure will face three new movies, Universal's Hail, Caesar!, Sony's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Lionsgate's The Choice. As expected, none of these new releases could beat Kung Fu Panda 3, which won for a second weekend in a row with an estimated $21 million.

The animated sequel Kung Fu Panda 3 currently has a solid 80% "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and it opened in 3,955 theaters, which will still make it the widest release in theaters this weekend, by a long-shot. Kung Fu Panda 3 marks the return of one of the most successful animated franchises in the world, with its biggest comedy adventure yet. When Po's (Jack Black) long-lost panda father (Bryan Cranston) suddenly reappears, »

'Kung Fu Panda 3' Tops Super Bowl Weekend; 'Hail, Caesar!' Leads Newcomers

7 February 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Kung Fu Panda 3 topped Super Bowl weekend, finishing #1 for a second weekend in a row while the weekend's three newcomers didn't exactly inspire upon release. The Coens' Hail, Caesar! performed as expected, though that isn't saying much, while The Choice ended up topping Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which couldn't even reach $6 million. Meanwhile, the big winner of the weekend is Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which crossed $900 million domestically and became only the third film to ever make over $2 billion worldwide. With an estimated $21 million, Kung Fu Panda 3 took home the #1 position for a second weekend in a row. The 49% drop is a bit steeper than expected, but could also have to do with some hesitation with predicting too high a Sunday gross. Nevertheless, with no serious competition arriving until Zootopia on March 4, this one still has a lot of time to rake in a few dollars. »

Box Office: ‘Kung Fu Panda 3’ Trumps ‘Hail, Caesar!,’ ‘Pride & Prejudice & Zombies’ Flops

7 February 2016 8:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood fumbled the ball during a quiet Super Bowl weekend at the multiplexes as new releases such as “Hail, Caesar!” and “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” failed to make much noise.

For the second weekend in a row, DreamWorks Animation’s “Kung Fu Panda 3” easily topped box office charts. The animated sequel added $21 million to its $69 million domestic haul. The film is playing particularly well in China, where it is being distributed by Oriental DreamWorks, a $330-million East-West joint venture. It crossed the $100 million mark in the People’s Republic this weekend after opening day-and-date in the U.S. and China on Jan. 29.

Universal’s “Hail, Caesar!,” a sendup of the Hollywood studio system from the Coen brothers, fared best among the new entrants, though that’s grading on a generous curve. It picked up a mediocre $11.4 million for a second place finish. A C-minus CinemaScore could spell trouble for the film’s long-term prospects, »

Regression Review

6 February 2016 7:27 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Consider yourself warned: Regression is not a horror movie. Despite the involvement of writer-director Alejandro Amenábar, best known for ghost story The Others, and a marketing campaign that has focused on the Satanic cults and human sacrifices wrapped up in the film’s messy premise, Regression is actually a finger-patronizing parable about the dangers of hypnosis and hysteria – and a largely intolerable one at that.

It all starts out promisingly enough, with committed Minnesota detective Bruce Kenner (Ethan Hawke) investigating the bizarre case of Angela Gray (Emma Watson), a 17-year-old girl who fled her family for the safety of a nearby church after saying she was ritualistically raped and scarred. It doesn’t take long for her father (David Dencik) to admit to molesting her – not because he remembers doing so, but because he is convinced Angela would never lie.

In an attempt to draw out his repressed memories, Kenner »

Ethan Hawke Set To Headline New Assassin Thriller 24 Hours To Live

5 February 2016 1:10 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Extending his working relationship with Fundamental Films, the Chinese production company spearheading Luc Besson’s space odyssey Valerian, Ethan Hawke has inked a deal to headline new thriller 24 Hours to Live.

That’s according to Deadline, after the outlet revealed that news first came to light on the eve of Berlin Film Festival, where Sierra/Affinity intends to handle international sales. Fundamental, on the other hand, are partnering with Thunder Road Pictures to finance and produce the motion picture, appointing second unit director Brian Smrz at the helm in the process.

Zachary Dean is penning the script, working from a treatment first pitched by Ron Mita and Jim McClain. A redemption story at its core, 24 Hours to Live will orbit around an expert assassin (Hawke, we assume) who is literally given a second chance at life after his employer resuscitates him. Living up to the evocative title, Smrz’s thriller »

This Harry Potter Actor Explains Why It's the Perfect Story For Diversity

3 February 2016 7:45 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Image Source: Getty With this year's controversial all-white pool of Oscar acting award nominees, diversity in film is a top-of-mind issue we need to talk about - and Katie Leung, who plays Cho Chang in the Harry Potter series, is doing just that. At Universal Studios' recent "A Celebration of Harry Potter" event in Orlando, I spoke with the Scottish-Chinese actress about her thoughts on Harry Potter and diversity on the heels of the recent casting of a black actress as Hermione in the upcoming stage production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Leung told me she thinks the way J.K. Rowling wrote the series without being race specific was "really clever," adding that this provided more opportunities for actors of an ethnic minority to be involved. "Even though my character is Chinese, we don't dwell on the fact that she is Chinese," Leung said. "She's just a student at Hogwarts, »
