'SNL': Anna Kendrick's 'Les Jeunes de Paris' dance party will make your Sunday

6 April 2014 1:57 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I'd never seen "SNL's" recurring "Les Jeunes de Paris" sketch before today, but hey, this is fun. On last night's episode, Anna Kendrick boogied down with such French luminaries as Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Marie Antoinette, Madeline and "The Fifth Element's" Ruby Rhod while also reenacting a bit from her "Cups" routine in "Pitch Perfect." For added thematic enjoyment, might I suggest munching on a nice warm croissant while watching? And also wearing a beret, and doing other stereotypically French things? Follow Riot on Twitter »

what’s on Captain America’s catch-up list… and what *should* be on it?

6 April 2014 10:19 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is now open almost everywhere around the planet — the last big region that hasn’t seen it is Japan, where the film opens on April 19th — and two things are becoming plain. One, the movie is huge: it looks to have earned around $96 million in North America this weekend, which makes it the biggest April opener ever; in the U.K., the film earned just over £6 million over its first weekend (which was last weekend), the second biggest opening of 2014 and more than twice what Captain America: The First Avenger debuted with in 2011.

And two: Steve Roger’s cultural disconnect is a little bit different depending on which country you see the film in.

One of the most charming things about Chris Evans’ man out of time, as I noted in my review, is the little list he’s keeping of the most important things »

The Week in Spandex - Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Batman vs. Superman, X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and more

6 April 2014 4:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Our weekly round up of all the latest stories from the world of screen superheroes, including Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Amazing Spider-Man 2, X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Fantastic Four, Chronicle 2, Batman vs. Superman, Arrow, Gotham, Son of Batman, Batman: Strange Days, The Incredibles 2, Lucy and more...

We'll jump straight this week with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which opened in the States yesterday and is currently tracking a domestic opening in the region of $93 million, which would put it above Marvel Studios' last release, Thor: The Dark World and overtake the $86.2 million debut of Fast Five to set a new April record. This comes after a solid $75 million international opening weekend (including a £6 million, first-placed opening here in the UK), meaning that Marvel has yet another smash hit on its hands with its third Phase Two offering. »

Recap: 'Saturday Night Live' – Anna Kendrick and Pharrell Williams

5 April 2014 7:48 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Chances are good for an aca-awesome episode of “Saturday Night Live”, with host Anna Kendrick appearing for the first time. And since Pharrell Williams is musical guest, there’s an equal likelihood that you might feel “Happy” while watching. But all puns inside, all things are aligned for a fun episode of the show to follow up a strong outing last week. Kendrick has a winning personality, seems game for anything, and can shine equally with both the men and women of the cast. Will the show live up to expectations? That’s for the weekly “SNL” liveblog to decide. As always, I’ll be grading each segment as it airs. As always, this approach will send a small portion of you into a frenzy. As always, I love you all enough to join you in singing “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” at a national singing competition anyways. See »

To kick things up a notch, they decide – why not? – to make a video of themselves trying out every position in The Joy of Sex in one marathon three-hour session. It seems like a great idea – until they discover that their most private video is no longer private. With their reputations on the line, they know they’re just one click away from being laid bare to the world… but as their race »

The James Clayton Column: The Biblical blockbuster comeback?

3 April 2014 12:58 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature James Clayton 4 Apr 2014 - 06:39

As Noah arrives in cinemas, and with Ridley Scott's Exodus around the corner, James ponders the return of the biblical epic...

"Then God said, 'Let there be Industrial Light & Magic'; and there was Industrial Light & Magic." (Genesis: A New Hope. 1:3)

It is the Year of our Lord 2014 (other Lords and religiously-orientated calendar systems are available) and things are getting old-school. To be precise, things are getting Old Testament. They're bringing the Bible back into movie theatres, for this year sees the release of two major movie adaptations of Judeo-Christian scripture.

Those two film events are a Noah - currently sailing into cinemas worldwide - and an Exodus, which is set to occur in December. Though it feels a bit disrespectful to compare holy writ with public transport, the well-known idiom about waiting for buses feels apt here. Perhaps singing "the Old Testament films came two-by-two, »

Trailer for Luc Besson's Lucy

2 April 2014 3:25 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Echoing the strong female characters of Luc Besson's other works, like La Femme Nikita and The Fifth Element, Scarlett Johansson steps in front of the camera for the French director as the titular Lucy. A reluctant drug mule, Lucy develops extra human powers, from telekinesis to clairvoyance, after one of the designer drugs enters her system. Seeking revenge on those who wronged her, Lucy finds herself losing her emotions as her powers continue to evolve. The extremely interesting premise aside, there is a lot to like about Lucy. The trailer shows Besson still has a grasp of the fantastic visuals which made his name, and Johansson offers a much darker take on the ass kicking female lead she has become known for. Released: August 8th (U.S.)/ August 22nd (Irl/U.K.) »

Watch: Scarlett Johansson opens her mind in trailer for 'Lucy'

2 April 2014 1:05 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

The debut of the new trailer for the upcoming thriller "Lucy" continues a busy year for actress Scarlett Johansson, who has four films opening in quick succession: "Under the Skin" and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" both open April 4, followed by Jon Favreau's comedy "Chef" on May 9, and then "Lucy" on August 8. -Break- In "Lucy," Johansson plays a drug mule smuggling a substance that enters her bloodstream and drastically improves her mental and physical prowess. The film is by Luc Besson, known for writing, directing, and producing action films like "The Fifth Element" and "The Transporter." "Lucy" probably isn't an awards contender. In fact, none of Johansson's films this year seem likely to finally break her through at the Oscars. Most are genre fare, though strong reviews for "Under the Skin," in which she plays an alien s »

Lucy Gets A Trailer

2 April 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Luc Besson has been at the center of pulp genre movies since the 90s with “Nikita,” “Léon: The Professional,” and “The Fifth Element.” Besson has always balanced high action and humor with mainstream appeal. Even the movies he’s produced like Taken and The Transporter are box office hits, as they retain a steady film franchise. Besson’s new film “Lucy” stars Scarlett Johansson as a woman caught in the middle of a drug war. Universal Pictures released the film’s first trailer that features Lucy’s superpowers. “Set in a futuristic world that is run by the mob, street gangs, drug addicts and corrupted cops, Lucy (Scarlett Johansson), a woman living in Taipei,  [ Read More ]

Scarlett Johansson Will Seduce You then Probably Kill You in Lucy Trailer

2 April 2014 9:55 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

So yeah, Luc Besson and Scarlett Johansson’s new movie “Lucy” is a science fiction flick in the vein of “The Matrix” and whatnot. And here I thought it was going to be more “Crank,” but apparently I was wrong. It’s more like “The Matrix” crossed with “Akira” crossed with “La Femme Nikita.” Luc Besson writes and directs, so you can pretty much expect a lot of nonsensical plotting, a kick-ass heroine, and tons of stuff that look cool, but don’t really make a lot of sense if you spend more than a few seconds thinking about it. That essentially defines Besson’s writing these days. But hey, I did mention that stuff will look really cool, right? And this trailer for “Lucy” certainly doesn’t disappoint.

Scarlett Johansson is One Sexy Weapon in Luc Besson's 'Lucy' Trailer

2 April 2014 9:49 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following an armed and dangerous first look last week, the first trailer for Luc Besson's return to directing action thrillers has arrived. Lucy follows a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic. Scarlett Johansson plays the title role, and she truly looks like one tough chick. The film is basically Limitless, but with an emphasis on accessing the maximum physical capabilities of a human in addition to the mental (as explained by Morgan Freeman). Besson knows how to do action pretty well, and this looks fun. Watch! Here's the first trailer for Luc Besson's Lucy, originally from Apple: Lucy is written and directed by Luc Besson (director of The Fifth Element and The Professional, writer of the Taken and Transporter franchises). The film follows a woman (Scarlett Johansson) forced to become a drug mule. »
