Robert Pattinson's Sex-Filled Trailer Debuts!

15 April 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Your Daily Roundup of Celebrity Gossip & Star Shenanigans!

Sex, Rehab & Pyromania! Robert Pattinson's new movie, "Maps to the Stars," serves up plenty of drama in the new trailer. The David Cronenberg movie, which also stars Julianne Moore, John Cusack and Mia Wasikowska, features Robert as a limo driver for Julianne's character, an actress in the midst of a spiral. In the trailer, the two share a rather explicit scene together in the back of the limo - "Twilight" fans, this makes that "Breaking Dawn" broken bed scene blush. "Maps to the Stars" is rumored to debut at ...

'Hunger Games: Catching Fire,' Jennifer Lawrence top MTV Movie Awards winners

13 April 2014 9:39 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

As we predicted, "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" was the big winner at the MTV Movie Awards, taking Best Movie, Best Female Performance (Jennifer Lawrence), and Best Male Performance (Josh Hutcherson).

Box Office: ‘Rio 2′ Flies Past ‘Captain America’ on Friday

12 April 2014 8:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In the tightest race of the year and the first major battle of the sequels, Fox-Blue Sky Studios’ “Rio 2” flew past Disney-Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” at the Friday box office.

The lighthearted family toon grossed $12 million, edging out the politically-infused superhero pic’s $11.9 million Stateside haul. “Rio 2,” which brought in $375,000 from Thursday night shows, also looks to dominate in the weekend box office. It’s on track for $44 million, versus the “Captain America” sequel’s $41 million. Distributors had expected the opposite turnout leading into the weekend and had underestimated the earning potential of both movies.

Rio 2” is coming in strong for a family film considering the fact that theater-goers usually skew older on Fridays, an advantage for “Captain America.” There will likely be a spike in attendance on Saturday and the movie looks to bring in strong earnings next weekend when the number of »

Lionsgate splitting final Divergent movie Allegiant into two movies

12 April 2014 2:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Lionsgate has decided to split the final chapter of its Ya adaptation Divergent, announcing that its adaptation of the third book in Veronica Roth’s trilogy, Allegiant, will be released as two movies, with Part 1 arriving on March 16th 2016 and Part 2 following on March 24th 2017.

This is the same technique that Lionsgate used to stretch out its two other big franchises, with The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay. The trend started when Warner Bros. extended its Harry Potter cash cow by releasing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows as two movies.

Divergent is out in cinemas now [read our review here] and takes place in a dystopian future where people are divided into factions based upon their personalities, with Shailene Woodley (The Spectacular Now) starring in the lead role as Tris Prior. The second film, Insurgent, is set to open on March 20th, 2015.

Rumor: Could Bill Condon Direct Disney’s Live-Action Beauty And The Beast?

11 April 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Though it’s taken a few years to come to fruition, Disney’s billion-dollar-grossing Alice in Wonderland kicked off a new trend for the studio in 2010.  It has slowly been working on live-action adaptations of some of the studio’s classic animated films, and we’ll see the next one this May in the form of Maleficent, which tells the Sleeping Beauty story from the villain’s point of view.  After that, we have Kenneth Branagh’s live-action Cinderella set for release in March 2015, Jon Favreau is directing a live-action take on The Jungle Book for release in October 2015, and there is also a redo of Beauty and the Beast in the works. While Disney set a writer on Beauty and the Beast early last year, we haven’t heard much more about the project in the interim.  However, if a new report is to be believed, the studio may »

"Allegiant" Split Into Two Parts

11 April 2014 10:27 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Divergent" is not living up to its title it would appear as the film series is now following the path of every other major young adult franchise of recent times - milking its audience with a two film finale.

Lionsgate and Summit have confirmed they plan to split the film adaptation of "Allegiant," the final book in Veronica Roth's trilogy, into two parts. "Allegiant Part 1" remains on course for a March 18th 2016 release while "Allegiant Part 2" will hit March 24th 2017.

In an official press release, Lionsgate Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsbergers say: "The storytelling arc and world of the characters lend themselves perfectly to two films, a storytelling strategy that has worked very well for us on the two Twilight Breaking Dawn films and about which we're tremendously enthusiastic for the two upcoming Mockingjay films of The Hunger Games franchise."

Final Film In Divergent Trilogy, Allegiant, To Be Split Into Two Parts

11 April 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows split into two parts, almost every other franchise has followed suit. Twilight did it with Breaking Dawn, Hunger Games is doing it with Mockingjay and now, in news that should surprise absolutely no one, Divergent is doing the same with Allegiant.

Lionsgate announced today that the final film in their trilogy will be split into two, with Allegiant – Part 1 opening on March 18th, 2016 and Allegiant – Part 2 arriving a year later, on March 24th, 2017.

While I see why this makes complete sense from a financial standpoint, I do think that it’s getting a bit ridiculous. It’s not like Divergent was so well received that people are just giddy with excitement to see two more instalments, let alone three. With something like The Hunger Games I can kind of understand it, as the first two entires into the franchise were adored by fans and critics. »

Following next year’s middle chapter, Insurgent, the series concluder will be released as Allegiant: Part 1 in March 2016 and Allegiant: Part 2 in March 2017. Divergent has so far scored a strong $139m worldwide, and it’s no great surprise that Lionsgate are looking to follow The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay in making Ya fans wait twice as long (and pay twice as much) to see...

Twilight: Breaking Dawn Director Bill Condon Eyed For Beauty And The Beast

11 April 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Beauty And The Beast has enchanted audiences worldwide, and it feels like every year there's a new, thinly-veiled stab at it. It's a flexible story, of course: guy is a monster, girl is lovely, she sees through his grossness, he accepts her fabulousness. Disney is here to brush away the CW's Beauty And The Beast and stuff like Beastly, however, to reclaim the throne. The Beast is comin' back, y'all. Film Divider's Twitter account recently revealed that Disney, attempting to relaunch their animated works into live action, has found a director: Expect Breaking Dawn and Gods and Monsters' Bill Condon to direct Disney's live action take on Beauty and the Beast. pic.twitter.com/5Ia03vRU6a. Film Divider (@FilmDivider) April 10, 2014 Condon is best-known as the architect for the final two fairly insane Twilight movies.

Divergent Franchise Gets a Fourth Movie: Allegiant Will Be Produced and Released as Two Separate Films

Get ready for more Allegiant. The final book in the Divergent series will be split into two movies, Summit Entertainment announced Friday. This isn't uncommon when young adult novels have been adapted for the big screen, as the final installments of three other blockbusters—Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—all received the same treatment. "[Author] Veronica Roth brings her captivating story to a masterful conclusion in Allegiant, a rich, action-packed book with material that is ideally suited to two strong and fulfilling movies," Lionsgate Motion Picture Group co-chairmen Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger said in a »

Divergent's finale Allegiant to be split into two movies

11 April 2014 8:19 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The final film in the Divergent trilogy will be released in two parts.

Deadline confirmed today that Allegiant, the final book in Veronica Roth's dystopian young adult book trilogy, will be adapted into two films.

This replicates the pattern established first by the Harry Potter series, and later Twilight and The Hunger Games.

"Veronica Roth brings her captivating story to a masterful conclusion in Allegiant, a rich, action-packed book with material that is ideally suited to two strong and fulfilling movies," said Lionsgate Motion Picture Group co-chairmen Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger.

"The storytelling arc and world of the characters lend themselves perfectly to two films, a storytelling strategy that has worked very well for us on the two Twilight: Breaking Dawn films and about which we're tremendously enthusiastic for the two upcoming Mockingjay films of The Hunger Games franchise."

Lionsgate Splitting Adaptation of Final Divergent Book, Allegiant, into Two Parts

11 April 2014 8:13 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

This is what Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows has wrought.  From now on, the final chapter of every major franchise will be split in two.  Mark my words: Eventually the adaptation of the final book in a trilogy will be split into thirds.  Xzibit will have to appear before every franchise and say, "I heard you like trilogies so I put a trilogy inside your trilogy."  The latest franchise to get the split treatment is Allegiant, the final book in the Divergent trilogy.  It's not a surprising move.  Lionsgate split the final Twilight book—Breaking Dawn—into two parts and they're doing the same thing with Mockingjay, the finale of the Hunger Games series.  You have to milk these franchises for all their worth even though I have yet to hear a single good thing about Allegiant. Hit the jump for the press release regarding the Allegiant movie split. »

Lionsgate Splitting Third ‘Divergent’ Book ‘Allegiant’ into Two Films

11 April 2014 8:06 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate has decided to make two films from “Allegiant,” the final book in Veronica Roth’s “Divergent” trilogy — following the same strategy it used for the “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games” franchises.

The second “Allegiant” film will open on March 24, 2017. Lionsgate vice chairman Michael Burns made the announcement Friday morning on CNBC.

Divergent,” starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James, launched on March 21 with a $54 million opening weekend in the U.S. It has generated a cumulative $117 million domestically in three weeks and another $22 million from international markets, where the rollout began a week ago.

The second film, “Insurgent,” opens on March 20, 2015, and the first “Allegiant” movie will open March 16, 2016.

The move was not a surprise. Burns told Variety last month, “Assuming the movie works as we expect, we like the idea of a ‘Divergent’ film every March to complement our ‘Hunger Games’ films every November.”

Divergent” was produced for $85 million »

Summit Entertainment Announces Release Dates for Allegiant Part 1 & 2

11 April 2014 8:03 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

What do you do when you have the successful rights to a book franchise?  Well, you split the final chapter into two separate movies of course.  It's a precedent that started with Harry Potter, and has extended through Twilight, Hunger Games, and now the final book in the trilogy kicked off by Divergent.  Summit made the news official today and announced release dates for both parts of the final chapter in the book adaptation series.  

There are times when it's good to split a movie into two parts.  The final Harry Potter book, The Deathly Hallows, was massive and incorporated the culmination of every subplot and loose end imaginable, so it made sense to split it up.  Now that that model has proven successful, everyone is jumping on it, whether it's needed or not.  Case in point, Summit/Lionsgate has announced that they will be dividing Allegiant (the final book »
