We first reported on this adaptation of Patrick Ness' novel back in March, when River Road Entertainment, Participant Media, Lionsgate International, and Focus Features teamed up to produce and finance the project. Felicity Jones is playing "Mum" in this story, which centers on a young boy who escapes into his own fantasy world, to get away from his dying mother and the classmates who bully him daily. This new world is filled with monsters and fairy tales that deal with loss, courage and faith. Patrick Ness wrote the book based on an original idea by the late Siobhan Dowd. Ness and his illustrator Jim Kay won the Carnegie Medal and Greenaway Medal in 2012, which are presented to the U.K.'s best children's books each year. »
Last month, news broke that The Impossible’s director Juan Antonio Bayona would be headed into fantasy territory for an adaptation of A Monster Calls. He’s putting the cast together, with word that Felicity Jones has landed a major role.Writer Patrick Ness has adapted his own novel for the film, which was itself based on an original idea by Siobhan Dowd.

Brit "It" woman Felicity Jones ("Breathe In," "The Invisible Woman") has landed a starring role in Spanish helmer Juan Antonio Bayona's adaptation of the children's fantasy novel "A Monster Calls." Per Deadline, Jones will play the character of Mum, and the production is reportedly courting Liam Neeson to play the part of "the Monster." So what's the set-up of the tale by author Patrick Ness (who is also penning the script)? A young boy retreats into a fantastical world of monsters and other creatures as a way of coping with the illness of his mother and bullying classmates. The film, which is eyeing a fall 2016 release, is a co-production between River Road, Lionsgate, Participant and Focus Features. Next up on Jones' slate is "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," James Marsh's "Theory of Everything," and "True Story," opposite James Franco and Jonah Hill.

By now we all know just how many F-bombs are in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf Of Wall Street. The tale of greed and excess starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill was lauded by many and received many considerations for Best Picture in 2013 despite the explicit language and record breaking profanity in the film. But, have you heard all of the F-words in the movie? The geniuses over at Screen Junkies have been kind enough to compile a supercut of every single F-word in The Wolf Of Wall Street »

Prepare for the welcome return of Hiccup and his loyal steed Toothless in the sequel to 2010′s epic How To Train Your Dragon.
Returning to the now harmonious Viking dwelling of Berk five years after we left it in the original story, we now find human and dragon working together happily. Astrid and Hiccup’s peers now use their dragons for racing instead of game, while his father Stoick has his sights set on his son inheriting Berk’s leadership after him. Of course Hiccup has other plans, mainly spending his days exploring unchartered territory with his scaly friend.
The new acceptance of dragons as friend not foe allows Hiccup and Toothless to roam the lands freely, providing ample opportunity for the story to move to new lands and importantly, new dragons. Now minus a leg as the result of the last film’s show down, »

21 Jump Street was easily the best comedy of 2012, and I (even as a huge fan of the old TV show) absolutely Loved it. So I’m admittedly a little biased towards the forthcoming sequel, the cleverly titled 22 Jump Street. We’ve already had a couple of posters and the odd image from the film but now here’s a ridiculous “undercover” clip from the film which is released on June 6th.
22 Jump Street sees the return of Officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) again going deep undercover, but this time at a local college to crack a crime ring within a fraternity. But when Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art major scene, they begin to question their partnership. In addition to cracking the case, the two freshmen must figure out if they can have a mature relationship like real men. »

21 Jump Street was one of the surprsie comedies from a couple of years back. It took the themes of the original TV series, put a spoofy, but not too spoofy comedic spin on things and made a cinematic hit. In 2014, 22 Jump Street heads our way, once again starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, and directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller. This great first clip is out there now, watch it here:
After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college.

Now they don’t have to just crack the case – they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship. »

Welcome to the new era of movie marketing, where studios aren't just content to show you a couple of trailers and hope you'll show up. Nope, they will pour on the clips, TV spots and in this case, serve up an opening chunk of the movie, all in the hopes that through sheer advertising exhaustion (or genuine interest) you will show up and fork over some cash for tickets and popcorn. So it goes for "How To Train Your Dragon 2." DreamWorks has thrown the first five minutes of the film online, with Jay Baruchel's distinctly voiced Hiccup introducing viewers to the sequel and cluing them in on what has happened since 2010. Picking up five years after the first movie, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, T.J. Miller, Kristen Wiig, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Cate Blanchett, Kit Harington and Djimon Hounsou are among those joining in this latest adventure that »
