Before she was Katniss Everdeen and an Oscar winner, Jennifer Lawrence was going out for pilot season just like every other struggling actress. In 2007, Lawrence landed a bit part on a Comedy Central pilot called “Not Another High School Show,” which attempted to cash in on the success of such films as “Scary Movie” and “Not Another Teen Movie,” which were big in the early aughts.

The horror genre is at a very strange place at the moment. It seems odd to think that a little over 15 years ago, it was dominated by fantastic slasher films such as Scream, New Nightmare and I Know What You Did Last Summer. Now the once great genre is split between a rock and a hard place with a choice of laughs or jump-scares thanks to Scary Movie and Paranormal Activity. With that being said there’s nothing wrong with either subgenre, although they have become a little bit repetitive. It may be a case of me getting increasingly nostalgic as I venture through my twenties, but I do miss the days of immortal serial killers barely breaking a sweat whilst chasing annoying adolescents through murky forests. However I digress, »

"She likes abs, but she likes her fat husband better, because she gets to feed him," he told DS at the Guardians of the Galaxy European premiere in London last night (July 25).
"She's a feeder and she wants to keep me locked up in the bedroom all fat and eating Kentucky Fried Chicken."
Asked if he now feels like he's being objectified as a sexual object, Pratt jested: "That's the nicest thing anyone's ever said to me. It feels good."
The Jurassic World star also expressed confidence that he »
Anna Faris and Chris Pratt celebrate five years of marriage this week, and while we're really happy they found each other, we're even more grateful that they found their way onto the big and small screens. Pratt's been making us laugh on Parks and Recreation for years (and he's about to appear in Guardians of the Galaxy), while Faris broke out in the Scary Movie series before settling into her recent gig on CBS's Mom. Both actors are hugely talented at making us laugh, so to celebrate their anniversary, it only seems fitting to highlight their various skills on the screen. Take a look and just try to tell me they're not totally perfect for each other. Source: Getty »

The horror genre is no stranger to self-awareness and self-parody. The “Scary Movie” spoof series has five iterations, and smarter self-referential fare like the “Scream” quadrilogy, “Tucker & Dale vs. Evil,” and “The Cabin in the Woods” have extensively catalogued and commented on the genre's tricks and tropes. But exorcism thriller “Deliver Us From Evil” is a different kind of meta, a demon-possession flick that seems possessed itself: a compelling domestic drama about the repercussions of violence that's been taken over and controlled by a dumb, pointless startle-a-thon. See video: New York City Is Possessed in Creepy New ‘Deliver Us From. »

The original movie was panned by many critics and its sequel, A Haunted House 2, hasn’t fared much better. But that hasn’t stopped Marlon Wayans (Scary Movie) from producing his brand of humour for his audience.
Tell me about A Haunted House 2.
It basically picks up where the first one left off, Malcolm escapes and now he has a new family and they move into a new house and the same old stuff happens. Spooky stuff starts to happen and there is a creepy doll. And his crazy ex-girlfriend moves in next door!

Chicago – Sequels just need a dose of energy and creativity, and then they work. The cast of “Think Like a Man Too” – including Kevin Hart, Regina Hall and Terrence Jenkins – provide that energy, as the gang from the first film heads to Las Vegas for a competing bachelor and bachelorette parties. The audience wins that contest.
Kevin Hart is arguably one of the hottest performers of the moment. Fresh from his record breaking stand-up film of last year, he hit a trifecta in late 2013 and early 2014 with the films “Grudge Match,” “Ride Along” and “About Last Night.” His quick wit and energy also has the character of appreciation, for the collaborator and director Tim Story, and his co-stars Terrence Jenkins and Regina Hall.

The Hooligan Factory, 2014
Directed by Nick Nevern
Dex, Danny and The Hooligan Factory travel the length of the country on a mission to re-establish their firm’s glory days. However, the police are closing in and we get a sense that the Hooligan Factory’s best days may be behind them, but with Danny on their side, and Dex finding his old form who knows where this may lead. After all… Its a funny old game.
Any screenwriting lecturer will tell you that if you want to break into the UK film market, pen yourself a script about football hooliganism. The reason for this is because there is a huge demand for it, they’re cheap to make and, like zombie movies, they can »

Move over Christian Bale, there's a new foul-mouthed movie set tirade everyone's talking about.
Spoofing might generally be considered flattery when it comes to making movies (see: Scream/Scary Movie), but The Football Factory star didn't take the Jason Maza-starring flick as an homage. Primarily because he wasn't invited along for the ride.
"They want to make a f**king film about hooligans, f**king taking the p*ss out of me and all," Dyer says in the spoof video.
"They don't want to roll me in! I've got enough f**king enemies out there slagging me off every f**king day of my life. I've got these c**ts running about giving it the big 'un."
Directed by: Seth McFarlane
Running Time: 1 hr 56 mins
Release Date: May 30, 2014
Plot: A cowardly sheep farmer (McFarlane) woos an outlaw’s wife (Theron) while trying to get over the girl (Seyfried) who dumped him for a man with a big mustache (Harris).
Who’S It For? Fans who like how McFarlane understands life, but can handle having to deal with his lead acting in live-action.
Le cinéma de McFarlane was born in 2012 when the white bro’s Tyler Perry directed Ted, a blockbuster comedy that appealed to an audience that looooves when its leading men act like boys, but now sweetened with the image of a teddy bear suggestively squirting lotion on its face. With that debut (in which he voiced the title »
