Zoë Kravitz, is that you? The multi-talented young star was spotted at Coachella last weekend with a pretty blond hair color for a fresh new look. Her and her band, lolawolf, performed at the Casamigos sponsored Desert Voyage Pool Party where she debuted her lighter tresses. So much for her sleek brunette locks! Zoë enhanced her bold hair transformation by cutting off a few inches for a cool bob and even added face-framing bangs for an overall edgy look. To match her softer hue, the 25-year-old actress and DJ also lightened her beautiful brows to match. With all of these drastic changes, she was almost unrecognizable at the music festival where she performed with her »
It looks like Zoe Kravitz is testing out the old adage that blondes have more fun! The Divergent actress has never played it safe when it comes to her fashion -- and her new blonde hair color shows she isn't afraid to take a beauty risk, either. Kravitz, 25, first revealed the lighter color of her chin-length locks during the first weekend of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. However, her new 'do was masked by headphones at the Alexander Wang X H&M Party on April 12, [...] »
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

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 »

Hey, fans of comic book movies, we have a handful of new posters from three upcoming comic book movies that we hear you crazy kids are looking forward to. Check them out below, check them outers. Up first, here’s Spider-Man taking a leap of faith in a new IMAX poster for Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” Next, check out two more posters for Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” featuring characters that will probably show up in the movie for a few seconds. By the way, who is that on the poster with Shawn Ashmore? Is that Anna Paquin or Ellen Page? Or Zoe Kravitz? I can’t tell. And finally, here are four new posters for Jonathan Liebesman’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” Oooh, it’s colorful! If all the posters featuring the turtles show them holding their weapons, what would the poster of Megan Fox show her holding? »
Lionsgate’s latest Ya franchise hopeful Divergent opened in UK cinemas this past Friday, and ahead of its release James Kleinmann caught up with star Kate Winslet for an exclusive video interview, which you can check out below…
“Divergent is a thrilling action-adventure set in a future world where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personalities. Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy to destroy all Divergents, she must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it’s too late.”

Director: Neil Burger.
Starring: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Jai Courtney, Zoe Kravitz, Christian Madsen, Ansel Elgort, Ashley Judd, Kate Winslet, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Tony Goldwyn, Miles Teller, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer, Ray Stevenson.
Running Time: 139 minutes.
Synopsis: Beatrice Prior (Shailene Woodley) lives in a dystopian Chicago where society is divided into factions dependent on personality. When she turns sixteen, she must choose whether to stay within Abnegation for the rest of her life, or live with another faction she believes is right for her. But Beatrice is keeping a secret that puts her life – and that of her family – in serious danger.
It’s incredibly unfair to compare Divergent to the Ya (that’s ‘Young Adult’, to those not in the literary loop) adaptations that have come before it. But it’s almost impossible not to. Boasting a central love story, action scenes and a futuristic setting, it is considerably less saccharine than Twilight, »

With Divergent now playing in theaters, I recently landed an exclusive video interview with producers Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher. For those unfamiliar, the film is based on the Veronica Roth novel of the same name and takes place in a society where people are divided into factions based on their personalities. Tris (Shailene Woodley) is a young girl who doesn’t fit into any of the pre-assigned groups and faces grave consequences due to her status as a “Divergent.” Hit the jump to watch the interview. Divergent also stars Theo James, Ansel Elgort, Ray Stevenson, Zoe Kravitz, Tony Goldwyn, Ashley Judd, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer, Christian Madsen, and Kate Winslet. During the interview, Wick and Fisher talked about how the project came together, casting the great group of young up and coming actors, deleted scenes, landing director Neil Burger, why he isn't doing the sequel, when they're »

Fans of Veronica Roth's "Divergent" finally got to see their favorite novel come to life on the big screen this weekend as the Neil Burger movie opened to a massive $54.6 million at the box office. That's the second biggest opening of the year after "The Lego Movie" and the film's "A" Cinemascore grade proves that Summit Entertainment has a potent new franchise on their hands. Of course, while the HitFix crew enjoyed "Divergent" more than a majority of nation's critics, the movie has its pros and cons. On the one hand, we think Theo James is a bonafide movie star, the supporting cast including Zoe Kravitz, Miles Teller and Maggie Q were excellent and Junkie Xl's score was fantastic. Then again, the climatic scene between Jeanine (Kate Winslet) and Tris (Shailene Woodley) still doesn't work (the reshoot didn't help), all that Dauntless running is just silly and too »

Street-walker chic, a beige polka-dot jumpsuit and a throwback Prom dress -- stars are rocking all the wrong trends this week!Shakira usually stuns on the red carpet, but "The Voice" judge landed on our worst dressed list this week for donning a super-sexy sheer black mini dress with black leather thigh-high boots.The blonde beauty looks like she borrowed this racy ensemble from Julia Roberts in "Pretty Woman!"Rosario Dawson raised eyebrows at a special screening for the movie "Cesar Chavez" on Monday, donning a tan polka-dot jumpsuit by Diane von Furstenberg. The fabric looks like a filthy patch of sand, and the baggy silhouette makes the "Gimme Shelter" star look like someone's crazy aunt from the '70s! And, Zoe Kravitz caught everyone's attention at the Los Angeles premiere of "Divergent"-- and not in a good way. The actress sported an over-the-shoulder white mini that should have stayed in the '90s. »

Divergent is one of my favorite movies because it has a fantastic story and lots of action. The film is about a girl Tris (Shailene Woodley). She lives in futuristic Chicago surrounded by a wall that was built after a great war. In this city the people are divided into factions to keep the peace. Factions are a group of people who do the same thing. The factions are called Abnegation, Candor, Amity, Erudite, and Dauntless. In Abnegation they are selfless. They believe that other people come first. In Candor they are honest. They believe that you should always tell the truth. In Amity they are peaceful. They believe everything should be tranquil and calm. In Erudite they are intelligent. They believe everyone should think and make the right choice. Lastly the Dauntless are brave. They believe in no fear.
Tris is old enough to choose a faction. She can »

For the Hollywood event, Maggie Q donned a black cut-out Anthony Vaccarello dress, which forced the actress to forgo underwear for the evening. Modeling the sexy number, Maggie Q confidently posed in such a way as to accentuate the thigh-bearing cut-outs in the dress. She kept it simple in the accessories department, wearing stud earrings, and an understated gold bracelet that matched her gold clutch.

In Divergent, Maggie Q plays Tori, the Dauntless aptitude test facilitator. In the role as a member of the brave and tough faction, Maggie Q shows off the fit figure she put on full display at the movie’s premiere.
The fourth installment in George Miller's post-apocalyptic Mad Max series has been a long time coming, but we've now got just over a year to wait before Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) steps into Mel Gibson's shoes for the long-awaited Mad Max: Fury Road, and a new image has surfaced online giving us another look at Hardy as Max Rockatansky...
