An iconic brand, London-based Hammer has had a resurgence over the past few years beginning with smash horror pic The Woman In Black in 2012. Expanding on a relationship that started with that film — via Alliance — and carried over to its upcoming sequel, Hammer and eOne have inked an exclusive multi-year first-look agreement, which includes production, financing and distribution. Under the pact, eOne will distribute Hammer films in Canada, the UK, Benelux, Spain and Australia/New Zealand. EOne Films International will handle the rest of the overseas territories. (Hammer films were previously sold by the now-defunct Exclusive.) EOne has been expanding its production business this year with Xavier Marchand as President of production and Harold van Lier heading up international. The company has also been going slightly more mainstream in offshore markets. Hammer’s other recent credits include Matt Reeves’ Let Me In and The Quiet Ones with Sam Claflin.

'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay' trailer (image: Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1' poster) The Hunger Games: Mockingjay trailer — or more specifically, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 trailer — has been around for a little while. So this is one of those better-late-than-never posts. Directed by Francis Lawrence, who also handled the previous film in the franchise, Catching Fire, Mockingjay – Part 1 brings back Best Actress Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook) as Katniss Everdeen, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark, and Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne. Below you can watch The Hunger Games: Mockingjay trailer titled “The Mockingjay Lives.” As you can see in the trailer, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 revolves around subversive revolutionary and freedom fighter Katniss Everdeen, who sets out to rescue Peeta, a sort of prisoner whose "uniform" is a funky white costume.

Say what you want about young adult book-to-film adaptations, but the large majority of them do come with quality soundtracks. The Twilight Saga made a point of it, Vampire Academy even has a song selection well worth checking out and The Hunger Games franchise is no different. For the first Hunger Games film, it was all about Taylor Swift’s “Safe & Sound,” then Catching Fire got Coldplay’s “Atlas” and now The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 has Lorde’s “Yellow Flicker Beat.” Both “Safe & Sound” and “Atlas” are solid songs and right in line with the Hunger Games tone, but neither ever snagged a spot on a personal playlist. “Yellow Flicker Beat,” however, just did. Hit the jump to check out the very first single from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 soundtrack. The film stars Jennifer, Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman, »

After an opening salvo last week Lionsgate continues to supply new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 images on the regular. The three pics they just released are fairly inconsequential but I loved Catching Fire so much I'm happy to report on the minutia of Francis Lawrence’s upcoming films in the series. The new images focus on the characters played by Philip Seymour Hoffman, Sam Claflin, and Evan Ross. As you can tell from the end of Catching Fire and the first trailer for the new film, Hoffman's Plutarch Heavensbee is coming from a completely different place this time around. Hit the jump to take a look at the new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 images.

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena alive, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what's worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss's family, not her friends, not the people of District 12. Powerful and haunting, »

Based on Laura Wade's (also script writer here) play Posh, The Riot Club sees An Education director Lone Scherfig take us inside the hallowed halls of Oxford University, where lies the decadent and debauched world of the titular society. A fictionalised version of the real life Bullingdon Club, The Riot Club is made up of the schools top students (read: they come from money), whose activities within the club amount to nothing more than eating and boozing till they vomit into the black plastic bags provided. With the club two members short, freshman, and rivals, Miles (Max Irons) and Alistair (Sam Claflin) are quickly inducted in, stoking the fires of a barely hidden disdain the club has for the lower classes. With our 'heroes' painted liberally with the spoilt, rich kid brush, The Riot Club is a sometimes compelling, entirely uneasy watch. There isn't a member of the club you could call likable. »

Based on the hit British play “Posh,” the Lone Scherfig-helmed “The Riot Club” premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month (read our review here) and a new clip (via The Guardian) is here – arriving just in time as the film opens in UK theaters today – along with a ten-minute chat with the principal cast. Starring Max Irons (“The Host”), Sam Claflin (“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”) and Douglas Booth (“Noah”) the film follows a pair of Oxford University freshmen (Irons and Claflin) as they assimilate into the rarified culture of the school, ending up in the exclusive Riot Club. Tensions come to a head, very bad decisions are made, and things go out of control in one night at a respectable establishment called The Bull Head. The nearly two-minute-long clip takes place before Irons and Claflin officially become members of the titular society, where the three leads are having a. »

The Riot Club no match for feelgood comedy drama on social networks in the UK.
The true story of gay activists who supported miners during the strike of 1984 generated more than 2,400 comments from Sept 4-10, with more than 45% of those expressing intent to view.
Lone Scherfig’s British elite drama The Riot Club, starring Max Irons and Sam Claflin, had to settle for second place with just over 1,900 comments, with a healthy 41% intending to covert comments into cinema tickets.

Inspired by The Bullingdon Club – Oxford University’s exclusive, male-only society for future high-flyers – Laura Wade’s play Posh arrived on the eve of the 2010 general election that saw former Bullingdon members David Cameron and George Osbourne take centre stage in UK government. Director Lone Scherfig’s (An Education, One Day) adaptation of the play, arriving after four years of Conservative rule, should be the scathing destruction of upper-class pomposity we’ve been crying out for. Sadly, The Riot Club never feels clever enough to be a convincing social satire, and is about as subtle as Boris Johnson at a warehouse rave.
The eponymous club is a raucous, ten-man tribute to hedonism; a privileged group of ultra-rich Oxford boys who yearn for the days of a true upper-class, disgusted by the fact that people from all walks of life can get into Oxford nowadays. The film begins with a new »

Hooray for a good old-fashioned rich-bastard bashing. But they get the last laugh: These guys are the future masters of the universe. Hooray. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
I have not read (or seen) the source material
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
Hooray for a good old-fashioned rich-bastard bashing. Oh, don’t worry: They don’t have feelings, and even if they did, they wouldn’t care what us poor proles think of them. Anyway, they’ll get the last laugh: One of these guys is probably a future U.K. Prime Minister. Fictionally speaking, of course. Not at all based on the notorious Oxford University secret society the Bullingdon Club (David Cameron is a former member), this is a completely 100-percent made-up tale of Oxford’s Riot Club, a literal old boys club whose overprivileged, underhuman members enjoy »

Lionsgate has unveiled a collection of new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 images from the first half of director Francis Lawrence’s conclusion to the franchise. As seen in the full-length trailer, the story finds Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss on the frontlines of an all-out war between the rebels of District 13 and the Capitol. These new images showcase Katniss’ battle-readiness, but the highlight of Mockingay – Part 1 for me continues to be Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer’s Cressida. She looks absolutely badass in the role, and after hearing Dormer’s thoughts on women in the movie industry at the “Women Who Kick Ass” panel at this year’s Comic-Con, I’m essentially ready to vote her into office. Hit the jump to take a look at the new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 images. The film also stars Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Julianne Moore, »
