No, it’s not wildly different than other science fiction, hero’s journey, and adventure movies. Sometimes we call such stories archetypal. Mythic, even. I’m “biast” (pro): I am eager for movies — especially genre movies — with female protagonists
I’m “biast” (con): nothing

Now see that, Hollywood! That wasn’t so hard, was it? To make a movie about a young woman doing cool kickass stuff and being the master of her own destiny… it didn’t sting too terribly much, did it, now? It looks like she might even get to save the world or something by the time the last of three-books-turned-into-four-movies comes around, and that won’t hurt, will it?
I hear the cries: “But Hunger Games!” Yes, Hunger Games. And? If there’s room enough in the »

Welcome to the Ya Movie Countdown, our resident expert’s biweekly guide to young-adult book-to-film adaptations. Clearly the young-adult book-to-film adaption craze isn’t slowing down anytime soon, but it seems as though the success of Divergent may have triggered a few major steps forward because we’ve got new details on three high-profile projects. First Clip from The Fault in Our Stars If you thought the chemistry between Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort in the trailer for The Fault in Our Stars was palpable, just wait until you catch the first clip from the Josh Boone adaptation.

If I Stay has debuted a new trailer.
The film centres around Mia Hall (Moretz) a talented 17-year-old cellist who falls in love with a local punk rocker (Jamie Blackley) in Portland while she prepares to make her own debut on the stage.
But when she and her family are involved in a deadly car accident, Mia finds herself trapped outside of her dying body and faced with the decision to live or let herself slip away.
If I Stay will open in the Us on August »
This summer, you won't have any shortage of young, hopeful, beautiful teenagers falling in love and then (possibly) dying. Shailene Woodley battles cancer and finds romance in "The Fault In Our Stars," and not to be outdone, Chloe Moretz will swoon before getting in a car crash in "If I Stay." And no, that's not a spoiler, that's the plot. Based on the book by Shauna Cross, the story follows Mia, a musically gifted 17-year-old girl who falls for a local punk rocker in Portland, and no this is not the premise of a skit on "Portlandia." She seems to have found "the one" when suddenly, a car accident puts her into a coma, the music swells, and she'll have to decide whether or not life is worth living, or if she should just leave this mortal coil. It's all a bit overwrought, but we're probably a couple decades too old for this anyway. »

Robert Bianco is floored by the new FX miniseries "Fargo," calling it "nearly perfect." He says that the current TV landscape is excellent, so "who would have thought FX would give us not just another contender for TV's top quality slot, but one that is both thoroughly original and outrageously entertaining." While named after the 1996 film and executive produced by Joel and Ethan Coen, the new project is more of "a tribute without coming across as a cheap imitation." The leads are Oscar winner Billy Bob Thornton and Emmy nominee Martin Freeman with strong support from Allison Tolman, Colin Hanks, Adam Goldberg, Russell Harvard, Kate Walsh, and Oliver Platt. Episodes air each Tuesday night starting this week. USA Today. -Break- The best dressed celebrities at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards are unveiled.

What makes the MTV Movie Awards different from any other award show Hollywood throws every year? According to comedian Pete Holmes, “legitimacy.” “We're completely lacking in it. This is a phony baloney one,” the TBS late-night host told TheWrap (above) while walking the red carpet for MTV's annual event on Sunday.

We probably won’t see Bethenny Frankel back on the Real Housewives Of New York anytime soon. The former reality star has likened her experience to the Vietnam War, though we’re certain the conflict in east Asia was much more gruesome. [The Hollywood Gossip] Where does Shailene Woodley grab new clothes? At the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, the actress told Big Morning Buzz Live she and her pals have “naked lady parties,” where they rummage one friend’s closet and strip down to try on clothes. Hmm, is that why she looked so amazing during last night’s show? Christina Hendricks would probably have the cutest kids around, but the Mad Men star says she has no plans to have children. »

Late last night, as you were attempting to watch Mad Men or Game of Thrones, or file your taxes at the last minute, you might have heard an eerie howling carried in the wind through your open window, making you pause for a minute and consider the possibility of something terrible afoot. Nope, it was just the sound of thousands of teens simultaneously freaking out while watching the MTV Movie Awards — the first clip from The Fault In Our Stars was released during the broadcast, and it was positively swoon-worthy. Stars is the highly anticipated adapatation of the Ya novel by John Green that has a near cult-like following at this point by teens and younger readers.

“That’s the thing about the story — it’s a cancer book, a cancer movie, that’s not about cancer,” Woodley told Variety. “It’s about love and it’s about universal messages. It’s a celebration of life.”
The film, adapted from John Green’s novel, is a story about two teens that fall in love after meeting at a cancer support group.
Green said he was truly inspired from the actors’ dedication.
“With characters like that you have to be really authentic and real, and I wanted to bring a sense of authenticity and truth to them,” said Woodley.

You have to hand it to Shailene Woodley. “Divergent” was not exactly a hit with the critics when it came out last month, far from it, but it’s managed to become a solid performer in the box office and has solidified Woodley’s status as a star. Studios have been desperate to replicate the type of success that “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games” have received over the past few years, but only “Divergent” has managed to come close to achieving big box office numbers. Clearly, Shailene Woodley is a big reason for the film’s success. And now, fans of the young actress will get to see her appear on the big screen once again in this summer’s “The Fault In Our Stars.”Shailene Woodley showed up at last night’s MTV Movie Awards in Los Angeles, as she was nominated in the Best Kiss category. While Woodley wound up leaving empty handed, »

All right. That’s another year of kicking ass. Another year devoted to this character.’ But that’s all right, because I am honored to be Tris, »

Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller didn't win Best Kiss for The Spectacular Now at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, but according to the film's leading lady herself, it was an honor just to be nominated. "It's funny, because I feel like usually Best Kiss [nominees] are these hot, romantic moments at MTV, you know? And ours was very sweet and innocent, lots of naïveté," she told E! News. "It's sweet." The actors also shared several scenes in Divergent and will reprise their roles in Insurgent, which shoots this spring. If Woodley had her way, they'd continue to capitalize on their onscreen chemistry. "I wanna do a musical with Miles, so if anyone has a script »
