The Flash Vs. Arrow Crossover Interview; Stephen Amell, Grant Gustin, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, and Producers Talk Two Night Crossover Event

2 hours ago

The epic two-night cross-over event for The CW series The Flash and Arrow (airing December 2nd and 3rd) is not only going to be unbelievably cool for comic book fans, but it’s just fun storytelling on a grand scale.  There are laughs, big action sequences, heartfelt moments and a couple of big surprises, all leading up to the sure to be jaw-dropping winter finales on December 9th and 10th. Following a special screening of the episodes, actors Stephen Amell, Grant Gustin, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, Danielle Panabaker and Carlos Valdes were joined by executive producers Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim to talk about why they wanted to do this big cross-over so soon, making the decision to have The Flash and Arrow fight each other but also team up against someone else, what it was like to do the big Flash and Arrow fight scene, how »

Weekend Box Office: Mockingjay – Part 1 Claims 2014 Record with $123 Million

3 hours ago

It’s by far the highest box office opening of the year, but the domestic debut of Mockingjay – Part 1 missed the mark in terms of previous Hunger Games releases.  And by a lot, not a little.  The penultimate chapter in the series was expected to open with at least $150 million but claimed $123 million from 4,151 locations instead.  That’s a 22% drop from Catching Fire, which opened on the same weekend one year ago.  Title Weekend Total 1.  Mockingjay- Part 1 $123,000,000 $123 2.  Big Hero 6 $20,086,000 $135.7 3.  Interstellar $15,100,000 $120.6 4.  Dumb and Dumber To $13,820,000 $57.4 5.  Gone Girl $2,815,000 $156.8 6.  Beyond the Lights $2,630,000 $10.1 7.  St. Vincent $2,354,000 $36.6 8.  Fury $1,900,000 $79.1 9.  Birdman $1,855,000 $14.4 10.  Nightcrawler $1,208,000 $27.1   Full story after the jump. It feels wrong to be disappointed by a film that has just earned the highest opening of the year… and by a lot, not a little.  Just one other film opened to triple digits in 2014: Transformers: Age of Extinction, with just over $100 million.  At this point it’s not »

Georgina Haig Talks The Mule, Connecting to Her Character, Bringing Elsa from Frozen to Life on Once Upon A Time, Fringe, and More

4 hours ago

Written by Leigh Whannell, Angus Sampson and Jaime Browne, the crime drama The Mule, set in 1983, tells the story of what happens when a naive man (Sampson) with lethal narcotics in his stomach is detained by Australian Federal Police. While locked in a hotel room and watched by cops, criminals, lawyers and his own mother, he's determined to withhold the evidence for as long as he can. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Georgina Haig (who plays legal aid lawyer Jasmine Griffiths) talked about what attracted her to The Mule, how she connected to this character, making the role three-dimensional, Jasmine’s secret ambitions, and why making this movie available to so many different people at the same time could really help give it a fair shot.  She also talked about being the physical embodiment of Elsa from Frozen on Once Upon A Time, feeling very protective of her, »

Listen to Jennifer Lawrence Sing “The Hanging Tree” from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1

5 hours ago

If you’ve seen The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, you know one of the highlights of the film involves a song sung by franchise star Jennifer Lawrence called “The Hanging Tree”.  It’s a somber tune with striking lyrics, and it’s probably been stuck in your head ever since you left the theater.  But not to worry, because you can now listen to the Hunger Games song in its entirety over and over and over again.  “The Hanging Tree” has been released online in full, allowing fans to take as many listens as they please.  Lawrence has admitted her immense embarrassment at having to sing the song on camera, but I’d argue that her quiet vulnerability is what makes the whole sequence so special. Listen to “The Hanging Tree” by Jennifer Lawrence after the jump.  If you’ve missed any of our The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 coverage thus far, »

The Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer May Arrive Thanksgiving Week

17 hours ago

We’ve been hearing quite a few rumblings lately about the first Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer debuting sometime fairly soon, but it turns out the teaser might be arriving much earlier than anticipated.  Like, next week earlier.  Director J.J. Abrams and co. wrapped production on the upcoming Episode VII a few weeks ago and the film doesn’t open until theaters for over a year, but this is one of the most anticipated movies in recent memory, so it’s no surprise that Disney and Lucasfilm are keen on giving a brief first look to fans a bit early.  If a new report is to be believed, the first footage from the Star Wars sequel will arrive Thanksgiving week in the form of a Force Awakens teaser trailer.  More after the jump. Word of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer release date first surfaced over on reddit. »

The Missing Recap: “Episode Two”

18 hours ago

In its second episode, The Missing continued the taught and emotional storytelling of its first.  "Episode Two" also showed that the series is not looking for quick answers, and yet, it still (thanks to its dual timeline) moves at a very fast pace.  A hint at the end of the hour also suggested that there is more to Oliver's case than just a rogue kidnapper, but that is, of course, only one small part of the story.  His the jump for why "we need to get a heartbeat out of a building that died over three centuries ago." Though The Missing still kept its focus on Tony and Emily, and their struggle in the wake of Oliver's disappearance, it also introduced several new characters that not only helped open up the case (for viewers), but also showed that The Missing is interested in telling many stories.  Vincent Bourg, for instance, »

Top 5: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, Pitch Perfect 2, Chris Pratt in Cowboy Ninja Viking, The Stand Will Be Four Movies, Fantastic Mr. Foxcatcher Trailer

23 hours ago

Available now on VOD is writers/directors Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer's horror film Starry Eyes. Starring Alex Essoe as an aspiring actress who is desperate to land a role she's convinced will jump start her career, the pic puts a devilish twist on a familiar tale of ambition, sacrifice, and obsession. Humorous at times (the very concept of a Hooters-esque restaurant called "Big Taters" comes to mind) and wholly bizarre/frightening at others, Starry Eyes owes a great deal of its effectiveness to Essoe's fantastic turn as the determined Sarah Walker and Jonathan Snipes' (Room 237) tantalizing score. The way things escalate in the final act will make it a hard sell to non-horror fans, but for those who hold the genre near and dear I predict it will go down as one of the most beloved entries of 2014 due to its undeniable style, memorable performance, and pertinent themes. »

Everything You Need to Know About Black Panther: An Introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s New Addition

22 November 2014 9:29 AM, PST

Of the new characters set to enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the next five years, one of the biggest fan-favorites has to be T’Challa, aka the Black Panther.  The Black Panther is different from most heroes due to the fact that he runs his own country.  Yes, T’Challa is the leader of the fictional African country known as Wakanda, a technologically advanced powerhouse that is light years ahead of the rest of the world in almost every respect.  The Black Panther is set to star in his own movie in November of 2017, will have a prominent role in Captain America: Civil War in 2016, and the role has already been cast with Chadwick Boseman of Get On Up and 42 fame bringing him to life.  With such a high-profile character finally getting the big screen treatment, now seems like a good time for an introduction to one of Marvel Studios’ newest heroes. »

Paris International Fantastic Film Festival Day 2: Tattoos, Hot Dogs and Butterflies in Our Stomachs

22 November 2014 9:24 AM, PST

The second day at the Paris International Fantastic Film Festival was filled with a lot of -- pardon my French -- Wtf moments. It leaves one wondering whether David Cronenberg had anything to do with today's program. It turns out the Canadian director was clearly an influence and thanked in the closing credits of Ink, the short film screened before the first competing film du jour and worth a mention. Written and directed by Glasgow-based horror journalist Andy Stewart, this sinister and horrific story features a young loser in Glasgow who is so desperate for some ink that he's willing to go to extreme lengths to get tatted up and transform himself into an ambulatory work of art.  Instead of going to the local tattoo parlor like a normal person -- well, the shop owner shoos him away -- he has a more, um, unusual method.  He spots a tattoo he likes, »

Friday Box Office: Mockingjay Part 1 Claims Highest Debut of 2014 with $55 Million

22 November 2014 8:55 AM, PST

Those who have been paying attention to 2014’s box office coverage know that there have been two regular refrains over the past eleven months: “Wow, this year kind of blows,” followed by, “But wait until Mockingjay hits!”  In a year that offered more misses than hits, it seemed like a safe bet that the penultimate chapter of the wildly successful The Hunger Games series would provide at least one weekend of hyperbolic box office goodness.  Huge crowds on opening night, maybe even a record or two?  So color me confused to have to say that, after all that buildup, Mockingjay – Part 1 is not the box office savior many of us were expecting.  At least not yet. Full story after the jump According to studio estimates, The Hunger Games 3 earned an estimated $55 million on its first full day in theatres, including $17 million from Thursday p.m. previews.  That’s by far »

Tina Fey’s NBC Comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Moves to Netflix with Two-Season Commitment; Debuts in March 2015

22 November 2014 8:47 AM, PST

In addition to developing its own incredibly successful original series like House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black, Netflix has also made a habit of either reviving long-dead shows (Arrested Development) or acquiring final seasons of soon-to-be-canceled/recently canceled series (Longmire, The Killing).  Now the network is adding a different kind of resurrection to its repertoire, as it has rescued a pilot from a major network.  NBC has been developing the comedy series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt for some time, and it’s been of interest because it was the first show that 30 Rock creator Tina Fey and co-showrunner Robert Carlock developed after the end of that excellent series.  A pilot was shot and it was ordered straight-to-series, but NBC had yet to put it on either its fall or midseason schedule for this year, leading many (including myself) to wonder what had happened. Well now it turns out »

Leigh Whannell Talks The Mule, Writing a Crime Film With Angus Sampson, Evolving as a Performer, and Insidious: Chapter 3

21 November 2014 9:33 PM, PST

I've been a big proponent of The Mule since I saw it at SXSW.  Which is funny to me, since I had to be dragged almost kicking and screaming into seeing it by one of the film's publicists.  Despite my fondness for Leigh Whannell (who co-wrote and has a major part in the film) and Angus Sampson (who co-wrote with Whannell, stars and co-directs), I'm just not that into scatological humor, which is what I thought the film was almost entirely going to consist of. I was wrong.  All of the stomach churning elements you've heard about are there, but there's an incredibly solid movie around them in every way that never pushes the gross-out throttle beyond what the story organically allows.  This is an effective crime film that works very well as both a comedy and a drama and you should seek it out.  I recently hopped on the »

Constantine Recap: “Danse Vaudou”

21 November 2014 8:42 PM, PST

Tonight's spooky episode of NBC's Constantine was a straight-up ghost story wrapped in a voodoo presentation.  Although "Danse Vaudou" didn't do a whole lot to advance the season's storyline (until the last few seconds, at least), it did have plenty of scares and style to spare.  It had the staples of urban legends - a deceased hitchhiker, a femme fatale, a love lost too soon - elevated by not only the tales of the loved ones they left behind, but by the clashing magical styles of Constantine and Papa Midnite.  While the hour didn't have quite the heart-tugging moments of last week's effort, it was still an enjoyable installment in what has become my surprise show of the season. Hit the jump for our Constantine recap. Well now, if that wasn't one of the craziest intro sequences ever ... A drunk man stumbles out of a bar to relieve himself in an alley. »

Red Knot Trailer With Olivia Thirlby and Vincent Kartheiser; Film Finally Set For Release Next Month

21 November 2014 3:51 PM, PST

More Olivia Thirlby is always a good thing.  She's one of our best actresses and we need a lot more of her on the silver, and smaller, screen. Same with Vincent Kartheiser, who we don't see enough outside of weasel roles (Mad Men) or villainous archetypes (In Time), both of which he plays rather well.  He's not completely out of those woods in this Red Knot trailer, but perhaps the circumstances in the film will add a few layers of nuance to his eternally wandering eye.  The film was shot by director Scott Cohen over five years ago, but is now being readied for release.  And it looks gorgeous. Hit the jump for the Red Knot trailer and a few words from Thirlby on the movie's production.  The film also stars Billy Campbell and opens at IFC in New York on December 5th.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 – What Did You Think?

21 November 2014 2:12 PM, PST

The time has come.  What’s bound to be the highest earner of 2014 is now in theaters.  As someone who’s very familiar with Suzanne Collins’ source material and has read Mockingjay quite a few times, I’ve been well aware that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 was going to be the biggest challenge of the film franchise.  Yes, the book has problems, but even if the scribes behind the Mockingjay movies fix them – and I think they did fix quite a few – the fact that Mockingjay – Part 1 is such a departure from the original two films could still be a problem for many. You can catch Matt’s full review of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 right here, but we’d also like to know what you think about the movie, too.  Did you like the change of tone and pace?  Did it leave you eager to »

Channing Tatum to Direct Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock Adaptation

21 November 2014 2:08 PM, PST

Get ready for Channing Tatum, Director.  The prolific actor/producer has been enjoying some very deserved rave reviews recently for his performance in the drama Foxcatcher, and now it looks as though he’s ready to take his career to the next level with directing.  Tatum is attached to co-direct an adaptation of Silver Linings Playbook author Matthew Quick’s Ya book Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock for The Weinstein Company.  Tatum will be directing the picture with his producing partner Reid Carolin, with whom he developed Magic Mike and its upcoming sequel Magic Mike Xxl.  More on this interesting directorial debut after the jump.  It’s no secret that Tatum has been aspiring to direct sometime soon, and earlier this year word surfaced that he and Carolin were toying with the idea of helming an adaptation of Jo Nesbø’s crime thriller novel The Son.  That project remains in development with the two attached, »

Dallas Buyers Club Director Jean-Marc Vallée to Helm Amy Adams in Janis Joplin Biopic

21 November 2014 1:47 PM, PST

The Jackie Jorp Jomp Janis Joplin biopic has a new director.  Lee Daniels had been attached to helm a film about the Queen of Rock ‘N Roll for a few years with Amy Adams attached to star, but it now appears that Daniels is no longer involved in the project, as Dallas Buyers Club and Wild director Jean-Marc Vallée is set to make the untitled biopic his next project with Adams still attached to star and sing all of Joplin’s songs herself.  Vallée is also bringing new writers onto the project as well, as his Oscar-nominated Dallas Buyers Club scribes Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack are due to perform a rewrite of the draft originally written by Ron and Theresa Kounin-Terry.  More after the jump. Vallée actually broke the news of his involvement with the Janis Joplin movie a few months ago in an interview with Journal Du Quebec via Metro, »
