Go on! "The Fall": Gillian Anderson is patron saint of no-nonsense "The Fall" is a captivating British serial about a calculating, dead-eyed serial killer (Jamie Dornan, who is currently skulking about the dungeon in "Fifty Shades of Grey") and the detective in Northern Ireland named Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson) who's onto him. Dornan's moody machinations are entrancing, but Anderson's understated authority propels this whole show.

'Mockingjay' Beats 'Guardians' as Biggest Movie of 2014

22 January 2015 11:59 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For the second year in a row, Katniss Everdeen stands alone atop the box office heap. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, which opened in November and is still playing in over 1,200 theaters, has earned $333.18 million as of yesterday, surpassing the Marvel blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy as the top-grossing movie of 2014. Despite already being released on Blu-ray and DVD, Guardians of the Galaxy is still playing, though it was only screening in 65 theaters nationwide last weekend, meaning its domestic take of $333.17 million won't increase too much over the next few weeks.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 still has some work to do if it wants to surpass its predecessor, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which was 2013's top movie at the box office with $424.7 million. While That movie's take was bolstered by 3D and IMAX screenings, Deadline's sources claim that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 was screened in, »

Jennifer Lawrence: 'I would totally do more Hunger Games movies'

19 January 2015 1:40 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jennifer Lawrence has revealed that she would love to do more Hunger Games movies in the future.

The actress said that she is "not happy" about only having a few scenes left to film on the final instalment, which is due out later this year.

During her conversation with Eddie Redmayne for Interview magazine, she said: "I think we're done with the press tour. I've got, like, one more thing to shoot for Hunger Games. We just have one scene to do for the end.

"I'm not happy about it at all. I would totally do [more movies]. And now Liam's doing a movie in Australia for two months. It's the longest that the three of us have ever spent apart."

She added that her friendships with co-stars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth have been the best thing to come out of her time working on The Hunger Games franchise.

Escobar: Paradise Lost Review

14 January 2015 5:51 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Escobar: Paradise Lost is a fine thriller that cannot live up to its title’s pretensions. Both parts before and after the colon promise a dramatic heft the film does not quite achieve. It is neither a probing, complex character study of Colombia’s most notorious drug kingpin nor is it a rich drama of sordid themes that its Milton-alluding subtitle suggests. Instead, the debut from Italian actor Andrea Di Stefano is an exciting cat-and-mouse thriller between a monstrous villain and his niece’s aloof, Canadian husband, the man who gets caught up in a whirlwind of Colombian corruption.

The young man on the run is Nick Brady (Josh Hutcherson), a Canadian surfer who we first see with his older brother (Brady Corbet) on the idyllic Colombian coastline. Boarding and working at equal measure, Nick finds his deepest salvation in the form of Maria (Claudia Traisac), a beautiful native who quickly falls for him. »

Benicio Del Toro’s ‘Escobar: Paradise Lost’ Release Delayed

8 January 2015 6:39 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Radius is delaying the U.S. release of Benicio Del Toro starrer “Escobar: Paradise Lost” from Jan. 16 to the second quarter.

“Escobar,” the directorial debut of Italian actor Andrea Di Stefano, combines the true story of Colombia’s drug king with a love story between a young Canadian surfer, played by “Hunger Games” star Josh Hutcherson, and Escobar’s niece (Claudia Traisac).

Radius did not give a reason for the delay, announced Thursday.

The film received positive notices at Telluride and Toronto Film Festivals. “Escobar” “offers an odd mix of action movie, romantic melodrama and cautionary traveler’s tale, which works better than it should thanks to Del Toro’s fascinating performance and Di Stefano’s assured, muscular helming,” said Variety’s Scott Foundas in his Telluride review.

Escobar died in a shootout in 1993.

Josh Hutcherson, Gerard Butler: See 5 awkward movie audition tapes

6 January 2015 6:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

If Eddie Redmayne is lucky, his unsuccessful Lord of the Rings audition tape - which he treated us to a rendition of this week - will never see the light of day.

Sadly, some actors aren't so fortunate...

1. Josh Hutcherson

If nothing else, this audition is certainly… elaborate. A pre-Hunger Games, and inexplicably spotty, Josh Hutcherson went up for the lead in The Amazing Spider-Man – a role which eventually went to Andrew Garfield.

It's not the most cerebral of auditions. In three minutes, Josh only manages to say "Thanks" and "Late for class", followed by another "Thanks".

Not that it's important when your tape features you beating up three men, doing a backflip and jumping about seven foot in the air. Backwards.

2. Gerard Butler

Or is that Ross Noble? Sporting offensive amounts of eyeliner and a dodgy accent, Gerard Butler gave this pretty bad audition for the role of Dracula in Wes Craven's 2000 movie, »
