Anaheim - First thing's first. The new "Fantastic Four" movie is definitely happening. No delays, no recasting. Josh Trank's vision is going to come to fruition. That's the word from the movie's screenwriter and producer Simon Kinberg who was on the Baton Rouge, La set two days ago and reveals that production begins in earnest in two weeks. Kinberg was at this year's WonderCon to speak primarily about 20th Century Fox's expected blockbuster "X-Men: Days of Future Past," but he also took a few minutes to talk about Marvel Comics' most famous family. He says the chance to create a "unique tone" is what excites him most about the reboot. "As Singer created with the original 'X-Men' movies, Christopher Nolan created with the 'Dark Knight' movies, Jon Favreau and Marvel created with the 'Iron Man' movies, all the best superhero franchises - Sam Raimi did it »

When 20th Century Fox announced in 2012 that Mark Millar had signed to consult on and develop their Marvel properties such as The Fantastic Four reboot and their X-Men franchise, many hoped that would lead to a shared universe involving these characters crossing over. A "well-placed source" for Schmoes Know reveals that the studio has no plans of merging The Fantastic Four and X-Men characters.
The unidentified source claims that the studio really wants director Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four reboot, which stars Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch, Miles Teller as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara as Sue Storm/The Invisible Girl and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm/The Thing, to stand on its own, without any help from the X-Men mutants.
The hope is that The Fantastic Four will do well enough to warrant multiple sequels. Of course, if the movie and its follow-ups do well, »

No, it’s not wildly different than other science fiction, hero’s journey, and adventure movies. Sometimes we call such stories archetypal. Mythic, even. I’m “biast” (pro): I am eager for movies — especially genre movies — with female protagonists
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
I have not read the source material
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
Now see that, Hollywood! That wasn’t so hard, was it? To make a movie about a young woman doing cool kickass stuff and being the master of her own destiny… it didn’t sting too terribly much, did it, now? It looks like she might even get to save the world or something by the time the last of three-books-turned-into-four-movies comes around, and that won’t hurt, will it?
I hear the cries: “But Hunger Games!” Yes, Hunger Games. And? If there’s room enough in the »

A good four days after all hullabaloo of Thierry Frémaux’s Main Comp plus Un Certain Regard announcement takes hold the film world, it is the programming team lead by Artistic Director Charles Tesson that get to unwrap an approximate baker’s half-dozen gifts of their own. On the 21st, the selections for the 53rd edition of the Critics’ Week will be announced with the closing film to be held back for a later mention, and because our Cannes bound Ioncinema.com team comprised of Blake Williams, Nicholas Bell, and I (Eric Lavallee) are always up for the challenge in prognosticating what is easily the most futile festival guessing game of them all, we’ve gone ahead and listed eight films from first and second time feature filmmaker for the seven plus 2 or 3 special screening slots for the upcoming edition.
If we build off what Tesson et al. programmed in »

“They are definitely an item. They were seeing each other a bit during filming of their movie together and ever since he went to rehab they got a lot closer. Her friends love him and say he is so sweet. He’s really good to her,” a source told E! News, confirming the relationship.

“That’s the thing about the story — it’s a cancer book, a cancer movie, that’s not about cancer,” Woodley told Variety. “It’s about love and it’s about universal messages. It’s a celebration of life.”
The film, adapted from John Green’s novel, is a story about two teens that fall in love after meeting at a cancer support group.
Green said he was truly inspired from the actors’ dedication.
“With characters like that you have to be really authentic and real, and I wanted to bring a sense of authenticity and truth to them,” said Woodley.

Finally, the 2014 MTV Movie Awards gave Zac Efron’s chest muscles the spotlight they deserve. We’ve long appreciated Efron’s physique, but it was nice to see him awarded for his fine work in a public forum, and give his adoring fans exactly what they wanted. Nicki Minaj stepped out as an actress at last night’s big show, and had no problem hanging with her The Other Woman costars and publicly hitting on Matthew McConaughey.
While the Movie Awards took over Los Angeles, celebs who don’t mind forsaking a shower and donning a flower crown partied festival-style at Coachella. Aaron Paul mingled with Ellie Goulding while Vanessa Hudgens practiced her selfie style before heading out into the Indio heat. Beyoncé wasn’t on the weekend’s bill, but that didn’t stop her from crashing the stage during sister Solange‘s set and dancing the night away. »

Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller didn't win Best Kiss for The Spectacular Now at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, but according to the film's leading lady herself, it was an honor just to be nominated. "It's funny, because I feel like usually Best Kiss [nominees] are these hot, romantic moments at MTV, you know? And ours was very sweet and innocent, lots of naïveté," she told E! News. "It's sweet." The actors also shared several scenes in Divergent and will reprise their roles in Insurgent, which shoots this spring. If Woodley had her way, they'd continue to capitalize on their onscreen chemistry. "I wanna do a musical with Miles, so if anyone has a script »

The MTV Movie Awards are coming your way on Sunday. The nominations this year, particularly for Movie of the Year, were interesting. I don't know that the wins will be, though, because frankly it seems like another young adult adaptation is poised to dominate after we got a bit of a breather from that sort of thing last year. I have no idea what I'm doing here. Yeah, the public votes, but I imagine there's plenty of rigging going on, too. So against reason, I'll try to predict them anyway. Don't use them for your office pool or anything (if you happen to work in an office so chill as to have an MTV Movie Awards pool, that is). Just try to follow my logic below and feel free to tell me why I'm wrong in the comments section.

Lionsgate, a leading global entertainment company, will produce and release Allegiant, starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James and based on the third book in Veronica Roth's best-selling Divergent trilogy, as two separate films, it was announced today by Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-Chairmen Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger. The Company will release a total of four Divergent films on its Summit Entertainment label, with the next film, Insurgent, which begins production next month, slated for release on March 20, 2015 and Allegiant - Parts 1 & 2 scheduled for release on March 18, 2016, and March 24, 2017, respectively.
The first film in the Divergent franchise is off to a fast start, grossing $117 million at the domestic box office in its first three weeks of release, and it continues its international rollout this weekend with openings in France, Germany, Russia, Australia, Scandinavia and other major territories. Book sales of the best-selling Divergent series continue to skyrocket with total »
The "Divergent" franchise is once again following in the footsteps of "The Twilight Saga" and the "Hunger Games" series. "Allegiant," the third title in the Ya series adapted from Veronica Roth's novels, will be split into two parts, following the 2015 release of the second film, "Insurgent." "Allegiant: Part 1" will arrive March 18, 2016, with "Part 2" following on March 24, 2017. Lionsgate previously had success with the formula with the last installment of "Twilight," and will likely score again with the two-part The Hunger Games: Mockingjay." Likewise, Warner Bros. broke box office records by splitting "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" into two parts. "Divergent" has so far grossed over $177 million domestically and helped make a star out of Shailene Woodley. It also stars Theo James, Kate Winslet, Maggie Q and Miles Teller. The sequel, "Insurgent," starts shooting next month, and will be released March 20, 2015. "Veronica Roth brings her captivating story to a masterful conclusion in 'Allegiant, »

What a joke, but this is what happens when audiences accept mediocre cinema. I's argue Lionsgate and Summit's decision to split the third book in the Divergent series, Allegiant, into two parts is a reaction to the film's mediocre box office performance as well as the standard money grab in situations such as when you have a young adult franchise where studios hope to milk the audience for as much money as possible. I do wonder, however, by 2017 will the audience that accepts Divergent as anything other than the mess it is even be interested in the rest of the franchisec I ask because today the studio announced Allegiant - Part 1 will be released on March 18, 2016 and Allegiant - Part 2 will hit theaters a year later on March 24, 2017. The announcement comes in advance of this weekend's rollout of Divergent into France, Germany, Russia, Australia and Scandinavia as the film, which »
