The Fault in Our Stars gets a darkly comic twist in the movie adaptation of Jesse Andrews's novel Me & Earl & the Dying Girl.

Greg Gaines (Thomas Mann) is an awkward Pittsburgh high school student whose dreary life changes forever when he's pushed into comforting a dying classmate named Rachel (Olivia Cooke).

Andrews has adapted his debut novel for the big screen, with directing duties going to American Horror Story's Alfonso Gomez-Rejon.

The film took the prestigious Us Dramatic Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival earlier in the year.

The ensemble cast for the comedy includes Connie Britton, SNL's Molly Shannon, Nick Offerman and The Walking Dead star Jon Bernthal.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan: From Bollywood royalty to queen of Cannes

2 hours ago

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has taken over Cannes. The word on the Croisette is that the world's most beautiful woman is in town, and everyone wants to get a glimpse of her.

The locals lining up against the barriers of the red carpet outside the Palais de Festival peer into the glittering world of the stars who descend en masse on their otherwise sleepy, seaside town. They tell me in their lilting French accents: "We don't know much about Bollywood, but we've come to see the beautiful woman from India, Aishwarya."

They may not have seen her movies, but the French people know and love Aishwarya and have embraced her as their own. Cannes has been unfaltering in waging a love affair with Aishwarya that has lasted 13 years, and today that romance is in full bloom. When she takes to the red carpet, it's as if the whole city has come to a standstill. »

In what may be one of Disney's best-matched castings to date, Reese Witherspoon is to play Tinker Bell in a new film.

Tink, which will focus on the story of Peter Pan's fairy companion, is the latest classic from the animation studio to be given the live-action treatment.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Witherspoon will also produce the feature alongside Bruna Papandrea, her partner at production banner Pacific Standard.

Poltergeist review: Dismal remake delivers snores not shivers

7 hours ago

Director: Gil Kenan; Screenwriter: David Lindsay-Abaire; Starring: Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Kennedi Clements, Jared Harris; Running time: 93 mins; Certificate: 15

If familiarity breeds contempt then overfamiliarity brings boredom. This lazy, unimaginative remake of horror classic Poltergeist supplies snores instead of shudders and inertia instead of intrigue, failing to muster any significant fresh ideas or sustain any tension.

Moving into a property built on an ancient burial ground is a marginally more doomed accommodation arrangement than a flatshare with Katie Hopkins and Perez Hilton. As per its predecessor's plot, the 2015 version positions a wholesome American family in this precarious scenario and unleashes a procession of progressively supernatural proceedings on them.

Whereas Steven Spielberg and Tobe Hooper's original transfixed viewers with its imaginative sense of dread and foreboding atmosphere, Gil Kenan's remake spectacularly fails to instill a sense of jeopardy despite some smart camerawork and solid performances from all the leads, »

Re-Viewed: Mad Max - How does the 1979 original compare to Fury Road?

13 hours ago

As Mad Max: Fury Road spews out thrills and soaks up acclaim in cinemas around the globe, now is a fitting time to revisit cinema's first encounter with the angst-ridden Antipodean way back in 1979. Set "a few years from now", it's an unsettling and unpredictable experience, full of creeping psychological tension and striking vehicular devastation. Both the dystopian world and the central character we initially see are different in many ways to what is currently wowing audiences, while being essentially the same in tone and spirit.

While Fury Road achieves that remarkable feat of being a faithful continuation of the character and original trilogy while working as a standalone entity too, knowing Max's background adds valuable insight. Is it any wonder why he is so resistant to forming any emotional bonds with characters like Charlize Theron's Furiosa given that he once had to scrape what was left of his »

Elizabeth Banks stands for women in Hollywood: 'Pitch Perfect 2 is unique'

23 hours ago

Elizabeth Banks has been quietly building up her roles in Hollywood over the last few years, and is now making her directorial debut with Pitch Perfect 2.

The actress has spoken to The Edit on how her success producing the first film in 2012 led to a move behind the camera for the sequel.

She explained that she sees it as a step forward for female directors in Hollywood and was mindful of that when she agreed to the job.

Banks said: "I don't want to pretend it's not what it is. You can't not take up the cause the minute you accept the job. I made a funny movie – about girls – and it's going to make money? It just doesn't happen."

Admitting that directing was a gruelling process, Banks's upcoming role in Magic Mike Xxl was like a vacation for her: "I was deep in post-production on Pitch Perfect 2 and I needed a break. »

The most satisfying movie threequels

21 May 2015 4:01 PM, PDT

The making of threequels can be a thorny business, especially when it comes to the most beloved of franchises, but that hasn't held back the creation of some truly phenomenal third films.

With the recent arrival of the The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies in Sky Store, we're celebrating some of the best threequels out there:

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

The Harry Potter series gave us a unique chance to watch a group of young actors growing up over more than a decade from cute little kids to major stars with some serious blockbusters under their belts.

As with Jk Rowling's original novels, The Prisoner of Azkaban revealed the full potential of the series. It is darker and scarier, sure, but also richer and more complex with some great character moments from its young cast.

Simon Pegg has been told to make his Star Trek 3 script less Star Trek-y

21 May 2015 2:52 PM, PDT

Simon Pegg is co-writing the script for Star Trek 3, but he's been told to make the film less "Star Trek-y".

The actor and writer - who also plays Scottie in the series - said that the studio was "worried" that a previous version of the script wouldn't appeal to casual cinema-goers.

Pegg and Doug Jung are currently working on a new script, following the departure of Roberto Orci from the project.

He told the Radio Times: "They had a script for Star Trek that wasn't really working for them. I think the studio was worried that it might have been a little bit too Star Trek-y.

"Avengers Assemble, which is a pretty nerdy, comic-book, supposedly niche thing, made 1.5 billion dollars. Star Trek Into Darkness made half a billion, which is still brilliant.

"But it means that, according to the studio, there's still one billion dollars worth of »
