Tsr Blog: How ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay: Part 1′ Loses to the Tyranny of Split Finales

5 December 2014 3:42 PM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

The following contains spoilers for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay: Part 1.

If the last five minutes of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire were like clinging to a pole for dear life with one arm and a whole lot of daddy issues this side of The Empire Strikes Back, its followup The Hunger Games: Mockingjay: Part 1 is like watching one trailer for Return of the Jedi over and over and over again, and then being told to wait another year to see what actually happens. With the revolution of Panem actually coming in 2015, the newest addition to the Hunger Games franchise has the ring of the distinctly less-thrilling episode of a TV series, where characters are treated more like chess pieces, being neatly put into place before a big strike … later.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay: Part 1 is a part of a new phenomenon that is bigger than its own franchise, »

The Relationship Between Highest-Grossing Films and Oscar Nominations

26 November 2014 10:07 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

It’s safe to assume that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is going to end the year as the highest-grossing film at the domestic box office with more than $331 million earned as of Nov. 23, but its Oscar prospects lie in below-the-line categories, such as visual effects and sound.

More often than not, the highest-grossing films tend to be neglected in the best picture category. Though The Dark Knight (2008), which was widely-acclaimed and was the highest-grossing film of the year, received eight nominations and won two (sound editing and supporting actor), it was snubbed by the Academy in the best picture category. The following year, the number of best picture nominees increased from five to 10 (and can now fall between those numbers). Since this increase though, the only highest-grossing films to land best picture nominations are 2009’s Avatar and 2010’s Toy Story 3. Neither of the films won. »

SAG Awards Honor Stunt Ensembles Who Put Action in Filmmaking

20 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The hours before the live broadcast of the Screen Actors Guild Awards on TNT are always filled with prognosticating and fashion, but there are also two coveted honors that are announced as guests make their way down the red carpet: the stunt ensemble awards for film and TV.

Since the 14th annual SAG Awards in 2008, stunt ensembles from film and TV have been recognized for their excellence, as well as their contributions to safety on set. As with all SAG Awards categories, nominees are determined by the respective 2,200-member film and TV SAG nominating committees, and the entire membership of about 100,000 votes on the winners.

“These folks are putting their lives on the line, and they’re so integral to the process and work so closely with our members. Even if they are not performing the stunts themselves, they are training our actors,” says SAG Awards executive producer Kathy Connell. »

What are the Hollywood Film Awardsc

14 November 2014 8:30 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Tonight the Hollywood Film Awards® will make their television debut on CBS, but what exactly is this show that has actually trademarked the tagline "Official Launch of the Award Season™" and declares they "launch the awards season" and that "over the past 17 years, prior honorees have gone on to garner many Oscar nominations and wins"c Well, it's just that, it's a so-called "awards" ceremony where the "winners" are more-or-less hand-picked by publicists. They aren't necessarily awards as much as they are curated attempts at headlines on the campaign trail. Carlos de Abreu is listed as the Founder and Executive Producer of the Hfa. His bio lists him as "an Internet pioneer" (whatever that means) and founder and CEO of the Hollywood Network® Inc. He was also a jet pilot in the Portuguese Air Force, but perhaps most importantly he has experience in brand marketing, which is pretty much all the Hollywood Film Awards are. »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

J.K. Rowling Reveals New ‘Harry Potter’ Short Story

8 July 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, the final chapter in the cinematic rendition of J.K. Rowling’s novels about The Boy Who Lived and his coming of age, released three years ago, but few people – if anyone – believed that would be the last time that we’d get to make a trip to the Wizarding World, either on the big screen or via the printed page.

Sure enough, since then a play about Harry (during his pre-Hogwarts years) has been produced, while over the past year Rowling has been working on the script for a Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them movie. Today, however, the author surprised the masses by unveiling a new short story (via the ...

16 Sequels that Were Better than the First Movie

9 June 2014 9:04 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In today's world of studio movie making, let's face it, it's all about franchising. It's all about the sequels. In fact, this weekend we have two sequels hitting theaters in 22 Jump Street and How to Train Your Dragon 2. The first is a comedy sequel and it's receiving great reviews, despite the fact comedies rarely have good sequels. The second has the potential to be one of the biggest movies of the summer and perhaps the biggest animated movie of 2014. Whyc Sequels sell and if they're good they sell even more. That said, last week I started considering the sequels that were actually better than the original film in any given franchise. This isn't a question of what are the best sequelsc (I've already made that list.) Instead, what sequels managed to exceed the quality and entertainment of the film(s) that came before them. In this sense I have »

From ‘Harry Potter’ to ‘Hunger Games,’ How Theme Parks Have Caught Franchise Fever

5 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate investors who presumed there was no more value to wring out of “The Hunger Games” beyond its final installment next year got a nice surprise last week. CEO Jon Feltheimer announced a new way to capitalize on the mega-franchise: A touring exhibition devoted to the movie will kick off next summer, the first element of a bigger plan aimed at putting the studio in the theme park business.

Indeed, blockbuster entertainment franchises are getting integrated into the parks with increasing frequency. Universal Studios Hollywood unveiled Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem in April, expanded with Super Silly Fun Land, the seaside carnival featured in the film. Up next: Universal is teaming with Warner Bros. to open Diagon Alley, a faithful re-creation of the London location from the “Harry Potter” films, on June 20.

As part of the massive expansion of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Universal Studios Florida built a »

'Harry Potter' spin-off ‘Fantastic Beasts’ sets November 2016 release date

14 May 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will return to movie theaters in little more than two years. "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," Warner Bros. and J.K. Rowling’s expansion of the Harry Potter film franchise, has scored a release date: Nov. 18, 2016. That’s almost five years after the release of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2," the final installment of the series. Rowling is writing the script for "Fantastic Beasts," which takes its title and characters from the charity novel she released in 2001 about a “magizoologist” named Newt Scamander. The film takes place several years before the events of the "Harry Potter" series. No director or cast announcements have been made yet. [Source: The Hollywood Reporter] »

Warner Bros. Sets 'Harry Potter' Spinoff 'Fantastic Beasts' For November 2016

13 May 2014 2:29 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It has barely been two years since "The Dark Knight Rises," yet today Warner Bros. unveiled their new-look Batman—played by Ben Affleck—who will be suiting up to play Bruce Wayne in "Batman vs. Superman" in 2016. So, that's four years between Christopher Nolan's film and whatever Zack Snyder is cooking up (and even less time than between "Spider-Man 3" and "The Amazing Spider-Man," Fyi). Why the rush? Because there's gold in them hills, and they're looking to keep the money flowing, and no surprise, WB wants more of those "Harry Potter" riches too. First announced last fall, and recently established as a new trilogy, the J.K. Rowling-penned "Harry Potter" spinoff series "Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them" now has a release date of November 18, 2016. It's already been a few years since "Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2" closed off the hugely successful series, and »

New J.K. Rowling Movie 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' Gets Release Date

Warner Bros. has set Nov. 18, 2016, as the date that it will bring J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world back to the big screen when it releases Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. While the studio completed its film adaptations of Rowling’s Harry Potter novels when it released Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 in 2011, last year the studio announced that it had struck a deal with Rowling to launch a new franchise based on her 2001 book Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, which is also the title of one of Harry Potter’s textbooks

The Most Universally Agreed Upon (Non Animated) Movies of the Last 11 Yearsc

9 May 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

An interesting list was posted on Reddit, listing the movies over the last eleven years that have earned at least a 95% on RottenTomatoes and have at least an average user rating of 8 or higher on IMDb. The list, understandably, doesn't take into account animated films and it includes some expected titles as well as a few I've still yet to see. Of those I haven't seen, they include Majid Majidi's The Song of Sparrows, Ki-duk Kim's Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring and Andrey Zvyagintsev's The Return. It's interesting to see the only repeat director is Richard Linklater with Before Sunset and Before Midnight, but anyone that knows my affinity for those two films also knows I'm not arguing they are two of the greatest movies of the last eleven years. I also find it interesting the only blockbusters included are Star Trek, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 »

Veteran Bergman Star, Coen Bros' Cast Members to Star in Sw: Episode VII

29 April 2014 6:25 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Star Wars: Episode VII’ cast announced (photo: ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ cast member Max von Sydow in ‘Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close’) Star Wars: Episode VII cast members have been announced. The world had been waiting with bated breath. Who will The Force be with? Well, not with humankind and its fellow Earth dwellers (apart from cockroaches and various types of worms) — if news reports about the eventual fate of the planet are accurate. But don’t despair. The End credits for Planet Earth should come after Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Studios (instead of former Star Wars film distributor 20th Century Fox) amass a few more billion dollars following the release of a whole array of new Star Wars sequels in the coming years. So, the announced (mostly European) Star Wars: Episode VII cast members are, to date, the following: Oscar Isaac (Sucker Punch, widely praised for his performance in Joel »
