Jena Malone (The Hunger Games sequels, Hatfields & McCoys) and Douglas Smith (Terminator: Genisys, Ouija) have landed lead roles the indie horror pic Bottom Of The World for director Richard Sears. Malone and Smith play Scarlett and Alex, a young couple who stop at a desert motel on their way to start a new life in L.A. When she vanishes, Alex desperately tries to find her but is plunged into a nightmarish world where he finally realizes that he must be in a dream — but he is not the dreamer. Ted Levine also has joined the cast as a sinister preacher who taunts Alex at every turn. Brian Gottlieb wrote the pic, which starts shooting September 1 in Ottawa. Malone is repped by Gersh and Hirsch Wallerstein; Smyth is with Paradigm, More/Medavoy Management and Morris Yorn.

“The Fault In Our Stars” producers could have another hit on their hands this summer — and this time, the boys may join in.
That’s quite an impressive feat–not just because the U.S. box office is having its worst summer in nearly a decade, but also because both males and females are saying they will buy tickets, which is unusual for a Ya book adaptation. Even action-driven projects like “The Hunger Games” started out with women outpacing men in desire to see the film. And while the “Maze Runner” books are nowhere near as popular as “The Hunger Games” or “Twilight,” appealing to both genders could help the studio launch a movie franchise with the story of a boy whose memory is erased and »

Yes, Jennifer Lawrence is quite the badass as Katniss Everdeen in "The Hunger Games" films, but she'll need some help in toppling President Snow's ruthless authoritarian government. That's where the rebel leaders camped out in District 13 come in. We've already met Gale (Liam Hemsworth), but "Mockingjay Part 1" will also introduce us to Cressida ("Game of Thrones" star Natalie Dormer), Castor and Pollux (Wes Chatham and Eldon Henson), Messalla (Evan Ross) and Boggs (Mahershala Ali). They're in league with the rebel leader President Coin (newcomer Julianne Moore) in an effort to overthrow President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and his media-savvy minions.

Summer in Hollywood iced over early, and never recovered.
Despite an August thaw that saw “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” shatter expectations, the summer box office will likely finish at its lowest point in eight years. Ticket sales are running 15% below last summer’s.
Thanks to the magic of CGI, cities crumbled on a weekly basis, defended by a rotating band of masked superheroes. But are these scorched movie metropolises a metaphor for a business being bombarded by newer, snazzier forms of non-theatrical entertainment, or is this a momentary stumble for an industry that’s still soaring?
“You can’t chalk it up to anything other than a weak slate of movies that didn’t resonate with consumers,” said Eric Wold, an analyst with B. Riley & Co. “We were expecting poor numbers to start with, and it got a lot worse.”

There was a time when movie sequels were simply given titles that sounded good on their own, without studios having to club audiences over the head with the fact the movie was part of a franchise.
From Russia With Love didn’t need to say that it was the sequel to Dr. No because it was obvious from the rest of the marketing and the book it was based on that it was another James Bond adventure. If the Bond series had begun just now then it would, like Jacks Ryan and Reacher, have cumbersome titles like James Bond: On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.
Even book series that are quite happy to give separate titles to their separate parts gain extra title elements on their progress to film. The simple and to the point Mockingjay is now The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, in spite of »

New posters for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 have been revealed.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 recently premiered a new trailer.
Jennifer Lawrence will return to lead the cast of the two-part adaptation of Suzanne Collins's novel, with Part 1 opening on November 21 this year and Part 2 scheduled for release on November 20, 2015.
The promotional campaign for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1″ is in full swing ahead of the film’s Nov. 21 release, and Lionsgate has released six “Rebel Warriors” posters, showcasing some of District 13’s rebels in the fight against President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and the Capitol.
Characters featured in the new posters include Liam Hemsworth’s Gale, Katniss’ (Jennifer Lawrence) best friend and one third of the franchise’s love triangle; Boggs (Mahershala Ali) who serves as Katniss’ protector in her new role as the uprising’s “Mockingjay”; Cressida (“Game of Thrones” star Natalie Dormer), a propaganda filmmaker who works with Katniss to undermine the Capitol; her assistant, Messalla (Evan Ross); and brothers Castor (Wes Chatham) and Pollux (Elden Henson), Cressida’s cameramen.

In addition to giving fans a glimpse at a solemn-looking, crossbow-wielding Gale, the newest posters from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 introduce a whole bunch of unfamiliar faces, including Natalie Dormer’s Cressida and her vine head tattoo. Though Dormer did keep some of her hair in contrast to book Cressida, she told EW back in January: “I’m actually really pleased that we went halfway because I think it’s more the Capitol… and that’s where Cressida comes from.”
While an earlier set of posters were stark, showing characters like Effie and Haymitch against the backdrop of District 13, »

The rebellion has arrived in these brand new posts for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay- Part 1. This is one badass crew you don’t want to cross paths with.
Armed and ready to send a pretty strong message to President Snow (Donald Sutherland), the rebel alliance features a bunch of new faces from the Districts. Character posters give us a look at Boggs (Mahershala Ali), Castor (Wes Chatham), Pollux (Eden Henson), Messalla (Evan Ross), Gale (Liam Hemsworth), and last but not least, the kick-ass Cressida played by “Game of Thrones” star Natalie Dormer.
Directed by Francis Lawrence, Part 1 sees Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) adopted as the symbol of the rebellion against the Capitol. We got our first look at the teaser trailer at Comic-Con which showed us a world under siege.

Deadline is reporting that The Devil Wears Prada director David Frankel will helm Departure for Good Universe. The sci-fi romance has a Billy Ray-penned script and tells the story of a “brilliant Faa investigator who is obsessed with learning how a 727 suddenly vanished into thin air and then reappeared in the exact same spot ten minutes later. As mysterious occurrences continue to occur with increasing frequency in the skies over Miami, the investigation becomes personal when the employee’s beloved wife is on one of the planes affected.”
The film, though not a true story, is inspired by one. Or several, actually, as it takes its cues from the novel Ghosts of the Air, which “contains real accounts from pilots who have been through such strange anomalies” as the one described above. So ya, apparently this kind of thing actually happens.
While I’ve never cared much for any of Frankel’s work, »

With only a few months left to go before fans of the Hunger Games series get to see the first Mockingjay film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, some new posters have arrived which show off the rebels from District 13. The posters have the Mockingjay symbol, but are far darker than the flaming sign to which fans have become accustomed.
Though there are plenty of new characters here, there is one face you will certainly recognise: that of Gale, played by Liam Hemsworth. Others are of Cressida (Natalie Dormer), Messalla (Evan Ross), Boggs (Mahershala Ali), Castor (Wes Chatham) and Pollux (Elden Henson).
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 returns to cinemas on 21st November and marks the return of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen. This is the first of two concluding films, based on the third book in the trilogy written by Suzanne Collins.

If rebellion lingered in the air after the first Hunger Games film two years ago, it became a way of life after the catastrophic cliffhanger of 2013′s Catching Fire; cut to now and it’s open revolt, though to date the promotional materials Lionsgate has released for the third film in the franchise, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, have employed subtler tactics than brute force. The Capitol favors indoctrination, seen in the spate of celebratory posters honoring Panem’s compartmentalized Districts, as well as viral clips lionizing President Snow.
But the rebel contingent hasn’t been silent: they’ve fired back by butting into Snow’s calmly unsettling addresses, while director Francis ...

The marketing campaign for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is fashioned as a propaganda battle between those stylish, ruling-class despots from The Capitol and the scrappy rebels of the various outlying Districts ready to throw off the diamond-encrusted yoke of dictatorship. New posters for District 13 popped up earlier this month, and now there are some new, militaristic images from the rebels online. Once again, they don’t feature either Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss or Josh Hutcherson’s captured Peeta Mellark, but we do see Natalie Dormer’s Cressida, Liam Hemsworth’s Gale, Elder Henson’s Pollux, Wes Chatham’s Castor, Mahershala Ali’s Boggs and Evan Ross’ Messalla.Directed by Francis Lawrence and adapted by Danny Strong from Suzanne Collins' third novel, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2 make up the third and fourth installments of heroine Katniss Everdeen’s journey to overthrow the Capitol and its smug, »
