When it was announced that Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat) will be directing the upcoming "Ghostbusters" reboot and that it will focus on a female team, it was immediately assumed that Melissa McCarthy would be one of the Ghostbusters. McCarthy is not only one of the most successful comediennes in Hollywood today, but she has done a total of three films with Feig. So if anyone is going to be cast in the "Ghostbusters" reboot, it will likely be McCarthy. The actress recently appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," where she revealed that she has yet to be cast. The other guest on the show, Lena Dunham, explained how important the "Ghostbusters" reboot is to Hollywood actresses.

George Lucas Says Movie Studios are Ruining Hollywood

17 hours ago

Now that George Lucas is no longer part of the movie-making business, he shared some of his thoughts on Hollywood Studios and why he believes they cannot produce good movies. "You're selling creativity. Raw creativity from talented people," he started. "Now, the problem has always been the studios. Although the beginning of the studios, the entrepreneurs who ran the studios were sort of creative guys. They would just take books and turn them into movies and do things like that. Suddenly all these corporations were coming in. They didn't know anything about the movie business." He continued: "The studios went back to saying, Well we don't trust you people and we think we know how to make movies.' The studios change everything all the time. And, unfortunately, they don't have any imagination and they don't have any talent." Lucas went on to explain that the only reason he was »

And now comes word that Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, the stars of "Key and Peele," just signed a deal with New Line to make a movie that sounds like a spoof of "John Wick." The comedy tells the story of friends who infiltrate the criminal underworld to retrieve a stolen cat. On top of that, the movie is called "Keanu."

James Cameron Reveals Advice He Gave to Terminator Genisys Producer

20 October 2014 9:36 PM, PDT

Ever since it was announced that Arnold Schwarzenegger will return for "Terminator Genisys," he's been saying that he'll be able to play the Terminator again because the robot's skin actually ages. Now comes word that the idea behind this came from James Cameron, who spoke about the reboot/sequel while celebrating the franchise's 30th anniversary. "I pointed out that the outer covering [of the Terminator] was actually not synthetic, that it was organic and therefore could age," he explained. "You could theoretically have a Terminator that was sent back in time, missed his target, and ended up just kind of living on in society. Because he is a learning computer and has a brain as a central processor, he could actually become more human as he went along without getting discovered." "Terminator Genisys" co-stars Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Jk Simmons, Dayo Okeniyi, Byung Hun Lee and Matt Smith. It's directed by »

French Theaters Cancel Annabelle Screenings Due to Damage Caused by Teenagers

20 October 2014 5:46 AM, PDT

Movie theaters have been forced to cancel screenings of such horror films as "Paranormal Activity" and "Sinister" due to awful behavior of young audience members who disrupt the screening and damage the theater. The same thing just happened during showings of "Annabelle," the prequel of "The Conjuring." Several French theaters are now refusing to show the film after teenagers began fighting, throwing popcorn and even ripping up theater seats. Les 3 Palmes theater, which has 450 seats, revealed that more than a thousand people attended the screening of "Annabelle" last Saturday. "Some didn't have the most elementary notion of how to behave," theater owner explained. "They were throwing popcorn and talking at the top of their voices or walking round. It's not up to me to teach young people how to respect the law." Film critic Alain Grasset added: "It's a very young audience, for whom the screening is a time to let loose. »

It was really hard for me," he said, later adding: "As a Polynesian, our gods are tied to water, so this means something special. My family are some of the greatest hunters. I'm going to train with my family." Momoa continued: "I'm very excited to be a part of it. Zack Snyder is a genius." »

Marvel Surprised Robert Downey Jr With an Unexpected Gift

20 October 2014 5:45 AM, PDT

Robert Downey Jr didn't have a long-term contract with Marvel like all the other actors who came after him. This is why the studio has been doing everything it can to keep him happy, including signing deals that earned him over $100 million for "The Avengers" and "Iron Man 3." In a new interview with BBC Radio One, Downey revealed that Marvel also gave him something he didn't expect, the huge "A" that hangs on the Stark Tower. "On the last 'Avengers,' there's this scene where there's this 'A' which is probably 30 feet tall, and I'm looking at it, and we're shooting in England, and I go, 'I need that in my office in Venice,'" he said. "About two weeks ago, a wheeler showed up. I'm like, 'What the heck is this doing here?' And they go, 'This is the 'A' you asked for.' And I go, 'They brought it? »

Guardians of the Galaxy is Struggling in China Due to Terrible Subtitles

20 October 2014 5:44 AM, PDT

"Guardians of the Galaxy" is not only one of the best reviewed films of the year, but is also a massive hit for Marvel, grossing $733 million worldwide. Despite being in theaters all over the world for some time, it's only now that the movie is being released in China. The country has become incredibly important to big budget films, since it's the world's second-biggest movie market and is on its way to becoming the first. That's why it's incredibly disappointing for Marvel to see "Guardians of the Galaxy" struggle in China due to poorly translated Chinese subtitles. Critics and fans are complaining that the subtitles are ruining the humor of the film, an element that made it so popular elsewhere. So how bad is it? According to China Daily, there are at least 80 translation mistakes. "Aside from a lot of mistranslations, the subtitles failed to show the original feel of the movie, »
