Flashback: 10-Year-Old Josh Hutcherson's Rise to Fame

20 November 2014 11:39 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson is only 22 years old, but his Hollywood rise began more than a decade ago. We're taking a look back at Josh's rather impressive career (so far!)

We first met Josh back in 2003, when the 10-year-old actor landed major back-to-back roles in the animated features Howl's Moving Castle and The Polar Express.

In 2005, he nabbed his first big-screen starring roles in the adventure film Zathura, and the young love story Little Manhattan, where Josh experienced a big "first" on set with co-star Charlie Ray.

"My first kiss was on this shoot actually – in front of the entire crew, which is really nerve-racking because everybody’s standing around," said Josh. "It's sort of cool because the first take we did, I was like shaking and my voice was trembling. I think it worked out really good, because it was really real."

A Year with Kate: Olly Olly Oxen Free (1978)

22 October 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Episode 43 of 52: In which Katharine Hepburn proves she's not afraid of heights or bad scripts.

Look, I’ll be honest with you. There is exactly one reason to see this movie. It happens around the last third of the film. No, it’s not another moth gown. (Remember the moth gown? I miss the moth gown.) Instead, it’s the sight of a sexagenarian, award-winning, legendary actress dangling from a hot air balloon over a cliff. I’m in my 20s, and I wouldn’t do that without at least a net and a shot of whiskey first. Anyway, if you want to know what it looks like, I’ve made a gif that you can skip to at the end of the post. I suggest you stick around for the rest of this article, though, because we have some strange stuff to address (and also some puns).

FrightFest has been a place of just as many laughs as it has been scares this year, but one film that aims to keep things very serious indeed. Director of Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer, John McNaughton, returns to supply one of the best films of the festival this year. The Harvest is an amazing achievement on many levels, not least that this is solid drama with a horror edge.

'Frozen' Codirector Set to Adapt 'A Wrinkle in Time' for Disney

6 August 2014 | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Frozen writer and codirector Jennifer Lee has finally settled on a follow-up project to 2013’s massive hit. Lee will next adapt Madeline L’Engle’s beloved young-adult novel A Wrinkle in Time for Disney. Lee wowed Disney bosses with her take on the tale about children traveling through time and space in search of their missing father. Plans are for her to adapt the first of four books with a “strong female-driven narrative” and potentially set the stage for a new franchise for the House of Mouse. The project was originally announced in 2010, with Bridge to Terabithia scribe Jeff Stockwell handling the adaptation duties, but it appears as though Disney wasn’t thrilled with Stockwell’s take and will now hand the project over to the woman...

5 August 2014 6:50 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Thanks to the success of Frozen, Jennifer Lee is a young filmmaker who surely has many, many offers in front of her. The animated Disney film was her first directorial effort - sharing credit with Chris Buck - but her inexperience proved not to hamper the film in the slightest, as it went on to make $1.2 billion worldwide. So, with such a promising future ahead of her, where is Jennifer Lee going to do next? She's going to script an adaptation of another beloved, classic, fantastic story. Variety is reporting that Jennifer Lee has worked out a deal that will see her write a big-screen adaptation of Madeleine L.Engle.s beloved book A Wrinkle In Time. Disney is behind the project, and has had the property in development for a number of years. Previously, Bridge to Terabithia screenwriter Jeff Stockwell was hired to write the script, but obviously the »

5 August 2014 9:19 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

She’s now working on the script of A Wrinkle In Time for the Mouse House.The adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s book – which Lee tells Variety is one of her favourites – has been in the works at the company since at least 2010, when Bridge To Terabithia writer Jeff Stockwell was hired to take a pass on the script.The story focuses on the Murry family; especially teenager Meg and her genius 5 year-old brother Charles Wallace, and Meg's classmate Calvin O'Keefe. Their scientist father has gone missing, but after the visit of a mysterious old lady called Mrs. Whatsit – who tells their mother that "There is such a thing as a tesseract" – they learn that their father's research may »

‘Frozen’ Director Jennifer Lee to Adapt ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ for Disney (Exclusive)

5 August 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jennifer Lee, who wrote, and co-directed “Frozen” with Chris Buck, has chosen her next project: “A Wrinkle in Time.”

Lee will write the bigscreen adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle’s book for Disney in which children travel through time and visit strange worlds in order to find their missing scientist father.

Published in 1962, “Wrinkle in Time” was one of Lee’s favorite novels as a child, and she impressed Disney executives with her take on the project, which emphasizes a strong female-driven narrative and creatively approaches the science fiction and world-building elements of the book.

While Lee adapts “A Wrinkle in Time,” she will continue in her role as part of Walt Disney Animation’s story trust and remain active in projects in development at the division that scored with “Frozen” — its biggest hit ever at the box office with nearly $1.3 billion — and has “Big Hero 6,” based on a Marvel property, »

20 Fantasy Films You Must See Before You Die

11 June 2014 2:34 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

TriStar Pictures

The most inherently interesting aspect of the fantasy genre comes in its ability to take us to other worlds; far off places we’ve only glimpsed in our dreams, where the rules of our own land are dropped in favour of the magical and the mystical. So when most people think of fantasy, they tend to think of wizards, orcs, goblins, ghosts, long-haired heroes wielding swords, and unlikely protagonists setting out to stop the end of the world as we know it.

The fantasy genre also happens to be one of the toughest genres to nail on the big screen – though it has long flourished in book form, fantasy tends to be either brilliant or downright terrible in film form, given its complex nature and the associated world-building; if you don’t set up the world just right, chances are your movie won’t work. Thankfully, there are »

London — Content has added Leif Tilden’s “Life at These Speeds” to its sales slate, and will introduce the film to buyers at Cannes.

The film was penned by Marc Novak, and is being produced by Tom Butterfield (“The Trust”) and Scott Alvarez (“Down for Life”).

The pic is a romantic drama about the ability of happy memories to sustain us in the worst of times.

Running, however, also brings him a certain notoriety, and he soon finds himself caught between keeping the past alive and making new memories in the present.

Gilly Hopkins Adaptation Recruits Sophie Nelisse

7 February 2014 3:24 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following her well-received turn in the 2013 film adaptation of The Book Thief, young actress Sophie Nelisse has added another literary character to her upcoming slate – Gilly Hopkins.

First published in 1978, ‘The Great Gilly Hopkins’ was written by Katherine Paterson, and won the prestigious Newbery Award which recognises achievements in American literature for children. The heroine of the story, Galadriel ‘Gilly’ Hopkins, is a highly intelligent pre-teen who has been made cynical and bitter following years of rejection by a wide variety of foster families. Things change, however, when she is placed with the formidable Maime Trotter – a highly respected, if unorthodox, foster parent. As Gilly rails against her new authority figure, she discovers that events in her life are heading in an unexpected direction.

The author Katherine Paterson is also the pen behind Bridge To Terabithia, which was adapted for film in 2007. Like that adaptation, the screenplay for Gilly Hopkins »
