15 Young Adult Novels Turned Into Movies

16 September 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The Maze Runner will finally hit theaters this Friday, September 19th.

Published in October 2009 and based upon the first book in a bestselling series by James Dashner, the novel became a New York Times Best Seller and captured the imaginations of readers around the world. Fans have described it as a combination of Lord of the Flies, The Hunger Games, and the legendary television series Lost.

Books to film – especially young adult adaptations – are big bucks at the box office. Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games and The Twilight Saga franchises have collectively grossed more than $5 billion at the worldwide box office, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is the 10th highest-grossing film of all time.

Over the weekend, Variety reported:

The 20th Century Fox release racked up a strong $8.3 million across five markets last weekend, with debuts that compared favorably to another young adult hit, “Divergent.” “The Maze Runner” is »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 Trailer Finally Hits

15 September 2014 2:26 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, which has delivered us with wave after wave of posters and tiny tease videos, finally has a trailer, and it’s actually pretty cool, though perhaps not especially informative for those who haven’t read the books, and are instead just making their way through the films.

We’ve already seen some very short clips of Peeta doing publicity shots, and we get more of that, and we get to see Katniss throwing her weight around a bit, but for the most part, you’ve got to know what’s going on if you want to know what the trailer is giving you.

One question that a lot of people have going in, which the trailer doesn’t really hint at, is where exactly the first one ends. I actually thought we might get a little nugget that might help people figure this out, »

Full Trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 Gets Epic

15 September 2014 10:21 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Last week we got to see a new poster for Mockingjay Part 1, featuring Katniss ready for battle, with the promise a new trailer coming soon.  Today's the day and, as promised, a new trailer for the penultimate Hunger Games movie has released and it's pretty epic to watch.  Come inside to check it out!

I'm loving this trailer.  In fact within the first few seconds, I had chills.  When President Snow is speaking with Katniss, there's so much menace and threat behind it (even while smiling), it's hard Not to have a reaction to it.  It makes for a more powerful villain.  The rest of the trailer is similarly awesome, setting up some big action sequences, along with letting people know exactly what's going on with Peeta...without giving it all away just yet.  

I was already looking forward to this film (despite it's mouthful of a title), coming off of the excellently done sequel, »

Watch the trailer for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1′

15 September 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Following a number of teasers (here, here, and here) and character posters throughout the summer, it’s all built up to this: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 has released… a trailer.

Surely though this is the most anticipated trailer of the year short of finally getting a first look at Inherent Vice, but star Jennifer Lawrence has been notably absent from all these early promotional materials. We finally see her take center stage as the symbol of Panem’s rebellion, communicating with Donald Sutherland’s always sinister President Snow and taking charge against District 13′s leaders, including a brief look at Philip Seymour Hoffman. The first two films were hardly a barrel of laughs, but this trailer makes the new film directed by Francis Lawrence look absolutely cataclysmic. Mockingjay – Part 1 releases November 22 of this year while Part 2 of the third installment of Suzanne Collins’ trilogy releases November 20 of »

20 Movies To Look Forward To In The Rest Of 2014

15 September 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

2014 has overall been a pretty good year for movies, with some fantastic Oscar contenders (and winners) released back in January and February, not to mention a summer packed full of great blockbusters and superb low-budget Indie movies like Jon Favreau’s Chef and comedies such as The Inbetweeners 2.

Superhero movies have dominated though, with Captain America, the X-Men and the Guardians of the Galaxy all keeping fans and regular moviegoers alike happy. The next one won’t be released until 2015 with Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, and there are still plenty of other big movies to look forward to in the rest of 2014.

Some are sequels and others are potentially the first instalment in a new franchise. Meanwhile, we also have plenty which could dominate come awards season, as well as more than enough movies which simply look like a fun time at the cinema as the »

What We Love Destroys Us In The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 Teaser Clip

10 September 2014 1:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Anticipation for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is mounting faster than a pair of jackrabbits. With just over two months to go until the end of Katniss’s journey begins, that’s another eight weeks for film journalists to struggle with the grammatical order of its title. It’s a colon, then a hyphen.

Oh yes, and it also means – there’s going to be a full-length trailer. Soon. In fact, it’s so soon (five days) that Lionsgate have decided they don’t want to be greedy and keep it under wraps. Following on from the release of the last poster, they want to tantalize and taunt fans of the million-dollar teen franchise with a teaser for the teaser. Unleashed below is a 16-second glimpse at what we can expect to see on Monday. It’s scant on… well, anything really. The only new spot of footage is »

Final Poster For The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

10 September 2014 11:58 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

As is usual for such things, the promotional campaign for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 has ben rolling slowly out with a drip-feed imagery for both the Capitol and the rebels from the Districts trying to change the world. We’ve had a series of posters featuring the rebellious characters, but Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen only appeared facing away from the camera. Finally, here’s the proper Katniss poster, online to herald the arrival of the new trailer in a few days. The first part of Mockingjay, adapted by Danny Strong from Suzanne Collins’ third novel, finds Katniss and the other rebels finally taking their fight to the Capitol and its PR-happy leader, President Snow (Donald Sutherland). But the fight against the all-powerful rulers will not be an easy one, and everyone involved will have to sacrifice if the Districts are to be finally free. {Hunger Games: Mockingjay Rebel Images}With Elizabeth Banks, »
