The messed-up machinations of bored, oversexed stepsiblings Kathryn Merteuil and Sebastian Valmont aren’t quite as shocking in 2014 as they were when Cruel Intentions was released on March 5, 1999. (Blame Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, and a zillion other glitzy/scandalous imitators.)
That said, Cruel Intentions is still an enormously entertaining teen movie, even 15 years (gulp) after its initial release — thanks to an uncommonly sharp script, a killer soundtrack, and, most importantly, an impeccable cast, which featured future Oscar winners and future Sharknado stars alike. Well, one of each, but you get the picture. Whoever headed up this franchise had a »

Follow along all night as we live-gif the entire 2014 Academy Awards. Ellen completely killed the opening monologue, ripping on Jennifer Lawrence's fall. Jared Leto made everyone feel bad by loving his mother more than you love yours. Pharrell and Lupita had the most amazing moment during his "Happy" performance. (Get it, girl!) Jim Carrey brought back The Grinch. Channing Tatum was beautiful. So Beautiful. The most epic selfie ever. And the second most-epic selfie ...

The classic tale by Rudyard Kipling, The Jungle Book is about a boy raised by wolves who befriends a bear named Baloo and black panther named Bagheera. The beloved story is public domain, so prepare yourself. We have a couple of dueling live-action films headed our way.
Most recently, Ron Howard (How the Grinch Stole Christmas) has been said to be in talks to direct the live action version that Warner Bros. is producing. He would be replacing Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu who had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts. This according to THR. The screenplay was written by Callie Kloves.

Warner Bros. recently confirmed plans for a new live-action Tarzan movie starring Alexander Skarsgard, Margot Robbie, Samuel L. Jackson and Christoph Waltz. Well, as you may already know, the studio has also set their sights on another new take on a classic property: The Jungle Book.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ron Howard is now in talks to direct, just a month after Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (Babel) was forced to depart the project due to scheduling conflicts.
Callie Kloves wrote the screenplay for Jungle Book, and she is the daughter of Steve Kloves (who wrote all of Warner Bros.’ Harry Potter films and is on board to produce Jungle Book). Howard also would produce via his Imagine Entertainment.

It appears that filmmaker Ron Howard may soon be heading back into family friendly territory. A month after director Alejandro González Iñárritu fell off the project, Heat Vision reports that Howard is currently in talks to take the helm of Warner Bros.’ live-action The Jungle Book adaptation. The studio is in a bit of a race to get the project off the ground, as Jon Favreau is helming another live-action adaptation of the Rudyard Kipling book for Disney with an October 2015 release date already set. Warner Bros.’ picture is being produced by Steve Kloves, who wrote all but one of the Harry Potter films for the studio, and his daughter Callie Kloves wrote the screenplay for this new Jungle Book film. Should Howard sign on, he would also produce this new adaptation. Hit the jump for more on the project and Howard’s very busy slate. If Howard signs on to direct The Jungle Book, »

Alejandro González Iñárritu was in talks to direct back in December, but scheduling issues forced him to drop out. The filmmaker is currently in post-production on his first comedy feature, Birdman.
Callie Kloves, the daughter of Harry Potter screenwriter Steve Kloves, wrote the script, based on Rudyard Kipling's classic 1894 story. The plot is set in India, centering on a young orphaned boy named Mowgli, who has been raised by wolves in the jungle, and befriends a bear named Baloo and a black panther named Bagheera, while battling the nefarious tiger Shere Khan. Steve Kloves is also producing with Ron Howard.
It isn't known when production will begin, but the Warner Bros. project is also going up »
Little J is more than a little naked!"Gossip Girl" star-turned-rocker Taylor Momsen strips down to nothing in the new music video for her band The Pretty Reckless.In the just-released clip for "Heaven Knows," which the 20-year-old co-directed, she exposes herself while covering only her lady bits with some strategically placed black body paint.It's a fitting image for a song containing the lyrics "Oh, lord, heaven knows, we belong way down below."Check out the video below. Warning: The clip contains some extremely brief nudity and sexual content.Taylor has definitely come a long way since playing the oh-so-innocent Cindy Lou Who in "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" back in 2000. And while she's known for some of her crazier on-stage antics and revealing getups, Momsen doesn't think she's doing anything that "controversial." "I don't see myself as controversial," she recently told The Huffington Post. "If other people see »

Yesterday we got our first real glimpse at the redesigned Teenage Mutant Ninha Turtles from the upcoming Michael Bay-produced live action remake, along with their nemesis Shredder [see here], but now we have a much better look via some promotional artwork that's currently on display at a Toy Expo.

Last week we caught a glimpse of how the Heroes in a Half-Shell might look in the upcoming live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot courtesy of a Michaelangelo Halloween costume, and now ComicBookMovie has posted an image which allegedly features in the final designs for the Turtles in maquette form...
Update: And here's a possible look at The Shredder...
So, if these are the real designs, what do you make of them?

Ryan’s client Benicio Del Toro will present the award to her at the Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild Awards on Feb. 15 at Paramount Studios. Past recipients include Colleen Callaghan, Paul LeBlanc, Vivienne Walker and Sydney Guilaroff.
“She was the first staff hair stylist at NBC Studios and designed phenomenal creations on variety shows for the network,” guild president Susan Cabral-Ebert said in a press release. “Whether being the department head hair stylist on ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’ or just part of the hair styling crew on a reality show, Gail’s tremendous talent has been inspirational to both seasoned veterans and those new to the business.”

With the movie out in a few months, it shouldn't be too long before we get the first trailer for the Michael Bay produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but this could be our first look at their new designs.
The movie has had a lot of negativity surrounding it, and these designs might not help.
While not an exact match, this is the first look (from TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles.com) at the Halloween costume tie-in for Michelangelo. Previous reports have said that the new designs will take inspiration from the original Eastman and Laird comics, but they've added some new features like sunglasses and necklaces.
Of course, this isn't an exact replica of what they'll look like, but it gives us a good idea.
What do we think?
With Despicable Me 2 being one of the biggest money-making movies of the year ($935 million so far!) and all kinds of award nominations including The Oscar, of Course, there will be a third outing with Gru and the gang. Universal Studios says the movie will come out June 20, 2017. That does Not mean we all have to wait 3 1/2 years for more of our favorite sidekicks...Minions will open in theaters this Christmas (Dec. 19 to be exact).
With all of us loving the animated movies coming from Universal and Illumination Entertainment, the filmmakers announced two more animated movies on the way. One is Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas from director Pete Candeland (seriously, the guy's last name is candy land...he's gotta understand kids, right?), which is nice follow up to Dr. Seuss' The Lorax. It's scheduled for Nov. 17, 2017. What other Dr. Seuss books would you like to see made? »

It looks as though the slow news weeks are finally behind us, because our RSS feeds were bursting with casting announcements, release dates, and more this week. Marvel seemed to have dominated, casting a new villain for Avengers: Age of Ultron while dropping a bomb about a very special addition to Ant-Man. Then news broke that Jaimie Alexander, Aka Lady Sif, would be cameoing on Agents of Shield while an Agent Carter show slowly moves forward.
A few little stories came in throughout the week (see the honourable mentions below) but Warner Bros swept in at the last minute to steal the show, announcing a pretty big change to their upcoming superhero team-up, Batman Vs. Superman.
Instead of boring you with the little details, let’s go ahead and jump right in, shall we?

But don’t worry, for those of »

Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment have announced the release dates for three of their upcoming projects that include Despicable Me 3, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and an untitled comedy from writer-director Garth Jennings (Son of Rambow, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy).
Despicable Me 3 will be released in theaters on June 30th, 2017. It's coming from the same team who brought us Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2. There's no details about what the third film would entail, but it will continue the adventures of Gru, Lucy, Margo, Edith, Agnes, and of course, the Minions.
Then we have a new animated adaptation of Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The movie is set for release on November 17th, 2017, and it will be directed by Pete Candeland from a script written by Michael LeSieur. You all know the story for this, it's just another reimagining.
As for the original animated untitled comedy, »

Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment struck gold in 2010 with Despicable Me, which was both funny, sweet and managed to find a great way to sell merchandise to kids with the introduction of Minions. Since then we got a sequel and are getting a spinoff film simply called…Minions, but that isn’t the end of it as Despicable Me 3 is hitting Us cinemas on 30th June, 2017, but it’s not doing so aloneas the two companies have two other films bookending it. On 21st of December, 2016, an unnamed project by British director Garth Jennings (The Hitchiker’S Guide To The Galazy, Son Of Rambow) will hit cinemas in the States, however little is known about the project other than the fact that it is about courage, competition, and carrying a tune.

Hot on the heels of the box office success of Despicable Me 2, Universal Pictures has announced that Despicable Me 3 will be heading to a theater near you in 2017. But that’s not all. That same year they also plan to release a new version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
In Deadline’s article they said that the How the Grinch Stole Christmas would be a “newly imagined” version, so no specification if it’s “newly imagined” live action or “newly imagined” animation.
We’ll be sure and keep you posted on the latest.
Despicable Me 3 is slated to hit theaters June 30, 2017 and How the Grinch Stole Christmas is slated to hit theaters November 17, 2017. »

Back in the mid-1990s, Disney and Pixar set a precedent for computer-animated films with the release of Toy Story. As the first full-length feature of its type, that film set Disney apart from competing studios, but Dreamworks ultimately established itself as a major player with the Shrek franchise a few years later.
In the decade or so since then, the palette of animated films has expanded dramatically; studios like Fox and Universal have joined the fray in a big way with their Ice Age and Despicable Me franchises, respectively. Now, the latter has announced release dates for a couple of new projects that should keep audiences coming back for more.
Universal has ...
