Get wet with Robert Pattinson, Zac Efron and Shakira's Ice Bucket Challenge videos

8 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Just when you thought we'd run out of celebrities to undertake the Als Ice Bucket Challenge, here come Robert Pattinson, Tom Cruise, Zac Efron, Liam Hemsworth, Shakira, Michael Jordan and more to prove you wrong. My personal favorite this round is Stephen King (nominated by the fantastically-creative Dave Grohl), mostly because the way he says "challenge" is really endearing. (Donate) Zac Efron and Ashley Tisdale (nominated Robert Pattinson, Matthew McConaughey and "Howard Stern Show" Wack Packer Eric the Actor): Tom Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie: Robert Pattinson (nominated Guy Pearce, Mia Wasikowska and Marilyn Manson): Michael Jordan (nominated Phil Jackson and his "Dream Team" teammates): Derek Jeter (nominated Hannah Davis, Kevin Connolly and Michael Jordan):   (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"; fjs. »

18 August 2014 7:15 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

In the recent boom of big-budget film franchises based on young adult series, it’s nearly impossible to escape a comparison to Harry Potter, Twilight, and, more recently, The Hunger Games.

The country, split into 12 districts, holds an annual event – the titular Hunger Games – where children between the ages of 12 and 18 fight to the death.

The first two films of the franchise, The Hunger Games and The Hunger Games: ...

'Mockingjay' director: Parts 1 and 2 will have 'two distinct stories'

18 August 2014 11:51 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Over the course of two Hunger Games films, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has been unflinchingly confident. But in Mockingjay – Part 1, the teen heroine suffers a bout of age-appropriate angst as she reluctantly becomes a rebel leader.

“It’s a very confusing, conflicted, complicated time for Katniss,” says director Francis Lawrence, who also directed 2013’s Catching Fire. “Having gone through the games one more time and having lost Peeta and having been run through the wringer, she’s even more damaged. So you find her in a more agitated place. She’s distraught, confused, angry.”

Two More Journey To The Center Of The Earth Films in Development

16 August 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Dwayne Johnson is set to reprise his role in two more Journey to the Center of the Earth sequels being developed over at New Line Cinema. Parts three and four of the family adventure franchise are currently being scripted by The Conjuring writers Chad and Carey Hayes. Regardless of how much I liked their horror movie, I'm still not going to see either of these Journey movies. The last movie that came out in the series was Journey 2: The Mysterious Island back in 2012.

There are no story details, but Johnson played a Navy code breaker in the previous story. THR reports that Josh Hutcherson is expected to return as well, and that the two films could be shot back-to-back.

The Hayes brother also worked with New Line and Johnson on their upcoming film San Andreas, which is the earthquake disaster movie that they just wrapped. The production company obviously likes working with these writers, »

Who among us saw the 2008 Brendan Fraser-led remake Journey to the Center of the Earth and thought, “This undoubtedly marks the august beginnings of a four-part motion picture franchise”? Because they would be right.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, New Line Cinemas and Walden Media have announced that both a third and fourth Journey film have entered development. While no one’s talking about plot, Journey 2 star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is attached to return, with scripts from Chad and Carey Hayes, who previously wrote The Conjuring.

Dwayne Johnson Set For Journey 3 And 4

15 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It would seem the big screen just cannot get enough of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson these days, much to the delight of his growing army of fans. Aside from his recurring role in the Fast And Furious franchise, the current release of Hercules, and the long-running, unconfirmed rumour of his future casting as superhero Shazam, Johnson is now confirmed as returning to the Journey franchise.

The family favourite fantasy-adventure film series began in 2008 with Journey To The Center Of The Earth, starring Brendan Fraser and Josh Hutcherson. The second instalment – Journey 2: The Mysterious Island – arrived in 2012, with Dwayne Johnson replacing Brendan Fraser in the lead role, alongside the returning Josh Hutcherson. Both films were box office hits, despite the second film receiving relatively negative reviews, which makes today’s sequel confirmations more of an inevitability than a surprise.

The difference with the next two franchise entries will be the writing team. »

Dwayne Johnson to Return for Two New Journey to the Center of the Earth Sequels

14 August 2014 7:45 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Warner Bros took on the "Journey to the Center of the Earth" franchise back in 2008 with a film starring Brendan Fraser and Josh Hutcherson. It grossed $242 million on a budget of $60 million. Apparently that was good enough for the studio to greenlight a sequel, which is called "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island." That sequel was released in 2012 and starred Dwayne Johnson, along with Hutcherson. The film grossed $335 million on a budget of $79 million. Now comes word that Warner Bros wants to continue the franchise and has just hired Chad and Carey Hayes (The Conjuring) to write the scripts for the third and fourth "Journey" installments. Johnson is attached to star in the new film, which may be filmed back-to-back. Hutcherson is expected to return as well. The plan is to take the franchise in a new direction. »

New Line Cinema has hired "The Conjuring" scribes Chad and Carey Hayes to pen a third and fourth film in its 3D "Journey" franchise.

Starting in 2008 with "Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D," the film scored a sequel in 2012 with "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" which saw Dwayne Johnson take over for Brendan Fraser as the adult male lead. Johnson is expected to return for both the new sequels.

The Hayes became known for penning numerous films for Dark Castle including "House of Wax," "The Reaping" and "Whiteout" before hitting it big with "The Conjuring". They're returning to pen that film's upcoming sequel, and also wrote Johnson's in production earthquake disaster thriller "San Andreas".

The Hayes will take over for previously attached screenwriters Brian Gunn and Mark Gunn, and are expected to "take the project in a different direction than what had been in development before."

Dwayne Johnson Still Attached to Make Two More 'Journey' Sequels

14 August 2014 6:27 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Over two years ago, just after Journey 2: The Mysterious Island hit theaters, Dwayne Johnson and Josh Hutcherson were set to return in a third film, with director Brad Peyton and writers Mark and Brian Gunn all back in the same capacity as well. However, it sounds like the direction of the franchise has changed a bit as New Line has just hired Chad & Cary Hayes, the writers behind The Conjuring, to script not just Journey 3, but also Journey 4, both of which Johnson is already attached to lead. As for Hutcherson, THR says the actor isn't attached yet, but as the only star of both the previous films, he's expected to return. Honestly, these films are just silly, childish, adventure fun, but mostly for kids, like theme park rides without the moving seats and carts. But Johnson has become a big star even in the past two years since Journey »
