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:

September tends to be a relative dead spot at the theaters. Multiplexes are still housing the last vestiges of the onslaught of the summer and quietly preparing for the slow march of prestige pictures that come with the fall and winter months. So instead of spending the time and effort to make your way out to your local theater to catch a screening of Dolphin Tale 2, why not stay in and watch one of these stellar movies from earlier this year on demand?
Director Pawel Pawlikowski made not only the most somber road movie of the year, but shot it in gorgeous black and white. The film follows its titular character (Agata Trezbuchowska), an orphaned nun, who must travel to visit her only living relative before she is allowed to take her vows. Pawlikowski uses this fish out of water tale to explore the complexity and sinful nature »

A trailer for David Cronenberg's new film Maps to the Stars has been released. Ss you might expect from a Cronenberg movie, it looks insane and weird in the best possible ways. The film is described as a "contemporary tale exploring the demons of celebrity obsession in our society."
The film follows the lives of the Weiss family, an archetypical Hollywood dynasty. Dr. Stafford Weiss is a psychotherapist who has made a fortune with his self-help manuals, and his wife Cristina manages the career of their thirteen-year-old son, child star Benjie, who recently came out of a drug rehabilitation program that he entered at the age of nine. Their daughter Agatha, completely shunned by her family, has recently been released from a Florida sanatorium, where »

Did you hear? Andrew Garfield is talking crap about "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" - or okay, at least he's admitting that there were problems with it. Of course, he's far from the first actor to denigrate one of his own films - from Meryl Streep to Brad Pitt to Halle Berry to Robert Pattinson (throwing shade at the "Twilight" franchise, wouldn't you know it), a host of stars previously have gone on record to badmouth the projects that in many cases netted them millions of dollars. So is it disrespectful to the other individuals who worked on the movie? Mmm...probably. But hey, who cares! We love a juicy soundbite. See below for 12 actors who just couldn't keep quiet about their most heinous films. »

It might not be accurate to say that director David Cronenberg has matured since his days of being the veritable king of body horror with movies like The Fly and Videodrome, but his tastes certainly have changed. His most recent film, Cosmopolis, was a bizarre experimental thriller which was largely based around watching lead actor Robert Pattinson monologue in the back of a limousine, and prior to that Cronenberg had become far more interested in directing dark, character-oriented dramas like A Dangerous Method and A History of Violence.
Pattinson’s involvement wasn’t quite enough to get Twilight fans flocking out in droves to see Cosmopolis, which was ultimately a box office flop, but Cronenberg’s prestige as a director means that he has never had trouble attracting big names to his movies. Maps to the Stars, his upcoming ...

The a new trailer for David Cronenberg‘s “Maps to the Stars” makes it look like Julianne Moore‘s character might be in danger when she hires a personal assistant, played by Mia Wasikowska.

David Cronenberg’s “Maps To The Stars” hit some snags in the U.S. recently (Focus World picked it up for possible VOD release in the U.S. in 2015) and many have said you can kiss Julianne Moore’s Oscar chances goodbye, which is a shame because she’s been nominated three times already and never won (she really deserves it). But in Canada, it’s all smooth sailing for the Canadian filmmaker's movie. Word out of Tiff has been strong, and there’s a great cast that includes Moore (who won Best Actress in Cannes), Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack, Robert Pattinson, Olivia Williams and Sarah Gadon. So we wonder what the issue is? Here’s the official synopsis: With this tale of a secret-filled Hollywood family on the verge of implosion, award-winning director David Cronenberg forges both a wicked social satire and a very human ghost story from our celebrity-obsessed culture. »

Hollywood’s self-reflexive nature is investigated this summer in two festival-circuit films: Oliver Assayas’ Clouds Of Sils Maria, and David Cronenberg’s latest opus, Maps To The Stars. After striking out at Cannes to mixed-to-positive reviews, the movie has recently secured a Us distributor but no firm release date. Focus World, who snared the rights, are rumoured to be dropping it on VOD sometime next year. Now, with a new trailer to pore over, does this mean we’re any closer to finally getting a confirmed date?
Cronenberg has never played it safe with his ventures. After his stint in the 70s and 80s rejuvenating the occult body horror genre, he’s left the gore behind for a different type of terror. Maps To The Stars is not a typically glossy Hollywood pic. The sun might be shining, but beneath the toothy smiles and perfect hair, the desire to be a fawned-over celebrity lingers. »

"Secrets kill." We've gotten glimpses of David Cronenberg's twisted and raw depiction of Hollywood with a trailer from the United Kingdom, a trailer from before the film premiered at Cannes, and also a couple other trailers before that. Now the film is poised for release next month in Canada, and a new trailer has just arrived, showing off even more of the promising performances from Julianne Moore (who won Best Actress at Cannes), Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack and Robert Pattinson. This looks pretty depressing and dark, but captivating in only the way that a director like Cronenberg can deliver. Watch! Here's the Canadian trailer for David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars from eOne: Maps to the Stars is directed by David Cronenberg (Scanners, Videodrome, The Fly, Eastern Promises, Cosmopolis), from a script by author and screenwriter Bruce Wagner (A Nightmare on Elm Street 3). The Weiss family is the »

In his first Hollywood film, director David Cronenberg lays bare the toxic dynamic of Tinseltown thanks to a bravura performance from Julianne Moore. She plays ageing leading lady Havana Segrand, who is fretting she may not get the role of playing her mother in a film. A pushy assistant (Mia Wasikowska) inveigles her way - via chauffeur Robert Pattinson - into Havana's household and massages her bilious ego. »
Edward Cullen('s hair) is back. Fans went crazy over the return of Robert Pattinson's "Twilight" 'do when he arrived at the Toronto premiere of his latest film "Maps to the Stars," which is directed by some guy named David Cronenberg and co-stars a bunch of non-Robert Pattinson people called Julianne Moore, Sarah Gadon, John Cusack and Olivia Williams.

Taylor Swift has no shortage of celebrity gal pals - from her longtime relationships with Selena Gomez and Emma Stone to newfound companions like Jaime King and Lena Dunham, Taylor's roster of famous friends reads like a who's who of hot young stars. One name we probably won't find on that list, however, is Katy Perry; after Taylor revealed to Rolling Stone this week that one of the songs on her new album, titled "Bad Blood," was written about another famous pop star who is now her "straight-up enemy," Katy posted a telling tweet, saying, "Watch out for the Regina George in sheep's clothing . . ." It has yet to be confirmed whether or not Katy's cryptic message was aimed at Taylor, but one thing's for sure: if Taylor Swift is Regina George, then she has a pretty large group of "Plastics" to call her own. Just this year, Taylor has partied »
