4 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

An Instagram post from Josh Gad (Frozen) has confirmed that he has finished filming his scenes in 2017’s live-action Beauty and the Beast film. The picture shows him embracing co-star Luke Evans (Dracula Untold) on a snowy set for the film. The caption reads, “That’s a wrap! Will miss the cast of #beautyandthebeast especially my brilliant Gaston #LukeEvans.” See it here…

In the film, Gad plays Lefou, the bumbling sidekick to the arrogant and egotistical Gaston, who is played by Evans. 

Along with those two, Emma Watson (Harry Potter) and Dan Stevens (The Guest) will star as Belle and the Beast respectively, with Ian McKellen (X-Men: Days of Future Past) as Cogsworth, Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks) as Mrs. Potts, Kevin Kline (Last Vegas) as Belle’s father Maurice, Audra McDonald (Private Practice) as Garderobe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Belle) as Plumette, Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games) as Cadenza and »

Insurgent Blu-ray Review

10 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Robert Schwentke

Cast: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Naomi Watts, Kate Winslet, Jai Courtney

Certificate: 12

Running Time: 112 minutes

Ever since Harry Potter and Twilight spearheaded the craze of turning young adult fiction into films we’ve had a plethora of book-to-screen adaptations. Some have been good, others so not much. The current crown holder is of course The Hunger Games, but the franchise reaches it’s conclusion later this year with Mockingjay Part Two. There are many contenders waiting to snatch the crown away from Katniss and the Divergent series is just one franchise that is biding it’s time.

Starring Shailene Woodley, the series follows the antics of young woman Tris who seeks to change her dystopian world. Set during an undisclosed time period in the remains of a ruined Chicago, society has bundled itself behind a wall and has separated itself into ‘factions’. These »

Rumor: Jena Malone's Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice Role Finally Revealed

30 July 2015 12:54 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When it was revealed that Jena Malone had been cast in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (a role she dyed her hair red for), fans immediately began speculating that she would be playing Carrie Kelly. After all, this movie is taking inspiration from Frank Miller's classic The Dark Knight Returns, so that theory made at least some sense. Then, The Hollywood Reporter weighed in by indicating that they had heard that was indeed the role The Hunger Games star had been chosen for.  Maybe not! According to Latino-Review, Malone has actually been cast as Barbara Gordon, a character better know to us all as either Batgirl or Oracle! They're not sure what exactly her role in Batman v Superman will be, but Snyder could really go either way with the character here.  Malone always seemed a bit old for Carrie, and Barbara - another redhead - seems like »

The Weinstein Company Moves Up Awards Contender 'Carol,' Pushes Back Bradley Cooper-Starring Chef Comedy

30 July 2015 10:12 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Cannes Review: Todd Haynes' 'Carol' is a Masterful Lesbian Romance Starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara As awards season approaches at an ever-more rapid rate, The Weinstein Company has made a few changes to their upcoming schedule, including an earlier release date for Todd Haynes' awards favorite and Cannes hit,  "Carol." The drama will now open in limited release on November 20, moving up nearly a full month from its original release date of December 18. Starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, the feature will now go up directly against the final "Hunger Games" film, "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 2," but should benefit from an earlier start than was originally planned. TWC has also pushed back their Bradley Cooper chef comedy, once known as "Adam Jones," from October 2 to October 23. The film has also been retitled "Burnt," marking its second title change -- it was originally known as. »

29 July 2015 6:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Stx Entertainment has moved its crime thriller “The Secret in Their Eyes” back a month from Oct. 23 to Nov. 20 — when it will launch against Lionsgate’s “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.”

Roberts plays an FBI investigator whose team is torn apart when they discover that the “unidentified female body” abandoned in a garage dumpster is her teenage daughter. Her friend and co-worker, played by Ejiofor, continues digging every day for 13 years until he uncovers a new lead.

“The Secret in Their Eyes” is directed by Billy Ray and produced by Mark Johnson and Im Global’s Matt Jackson. The film is the first potential awards contender and only the second release from year-old Stx, which launches its first title on Aug. 7, opening with the thriller “The Gift. »

Jennifer Lawrence Would Die In The Arena, According To A Hunger Games Simulator

29 July 2015 12:57 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

I don.t know about you, but when I watch a movie where the characters go through a harrowing situation I always wonder to myself how far I would make it in the same circumstances, or how long the actors would last. Now there.s a simulator that looks to examine how long cast members of The Hunger Games would last in a real battle to the death, and according to these results, star Jennifer Lawrence would totally lose. Late last year, a developer with the awesome name Brant Steel created a program designed to imitate the kids-murdering-kids-for-entertainment action of The Hunger Games. You can throw any old picture.of yourself, a loved one, a fictional character, whatever.into the simulator to see how long you will last. MTV got the brilliant idea to actually use the cast of The Hunger Games to see who would emerge the victor in »

Media Companies Hope Box Office Bounty Masks TV Troubles

29 July 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Movies … now more than ever.” It’s a made-up slogan used by a fictional movie studio at the center of the 1992 film “The Player.” Some of today’s biggest media companies likely wish this confident pronouncement were real.

Box office isn’t typically the biggest contributor to the bottom lines of entertainment giants like Time Warner, 21st Century Fox, Viacom and Disney, but in an era when normal patterns of ad spending are in massive flux, executives at those companies may feel more warmly toward Hollywood than they do Madison Avenue, even though film success has long been more unpredictable. “You know you are in trouble when the only positive media data point in the quarter is the U.S. box office,” said Michael Nathanson, a financial analyst who covers the media industry, in a recent research note.

Watch Katniss Fight Jon Snow in Genius 'The Hunger Game of Thrones' Trailer

29 July 2015 2:05 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

You know nothing, President Snow!

It was only a matter of time before the Internet produced a soul brave, funny, and skilled enough to combine the two Snows of "The Hunger Games" and "Game of Thrones" -- and that time is now. Enter David Elmaleh, whose spoof trailer "The Hunger Game of Thrones: Jon Snow Must Die" is the best thing you'll see this week.

It's perfect. It fits so well, you'd think "Hunger Games" writer Suzanne Collins and "Game of Thrones" series author George R.R. Martin planned for this mashup the entire time. In the 1-minute, 22-second trailer, the synopsis teases, "Katniss Everdeen faces off against President Snow...Jon Snow." We hear Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss whisper, "Nothing good is safe while Snow's alive" while Kit Harington's HBO Snow is shown in his icy terrain. The battle and speech shots really do seem to belong together, and it »

Cindy Crawford Developing NBC Series About ’80s Modeling Wars (Exclusive)

28 July 2015 5:33 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cindy Crawford is developing a drama for NBC, based on the modeling world in the 1980’s, Variety has learned exclusively.

The series, tentatively titled “Icon,” marks Crawford’s television producing debut.

Anne Heche and James Tupper will also serve as exec producers with Crawford and Robin Bissell (“The Hunger Games”) who will pen the project, hailing from Universal TV.

“Icon,” in very early development, revolves around the modeling wars in the ’80s that occurred between Ford Modeling Agency and Elite Model Management. The show is completely fictionalized, rather than a re-telling of Crawford’s own experiences. No actual names of models or figures from the time will be used.

Crawford’s role will remain strictly as a producer, and she will not appear as a character in the series.

The CAA-repped Crawford achieved international superstardom in the ’80s and ’90s — the heyday of supermodels — when Naomi CampbellLinda Evangelista, Christie Brinkley, »

They’re really savvy to the way the show works.” So when season 9 premieres at 9 p.m. Et/Pt today, expect to see contestants who know how to avoid the pitfalls of artists on past seasons, how to better manage their time in the Spotlight Challenges, and how to best navigate working with their competitors.

James Bond: Did Sam Smith Or Ellie Goulding Sing Spectre Theme?

28 July 2015 8:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Speculation has run rampant with regard to the upcoming theme song for Spectre, which director Sam Mendes recently confirmed has been recorded and sounds “fantastic.” As is traditional for the James Bond franchise, the title tune has been shrouded in secrecy, leaving fans to scrutinize every possible contender for the gig.

Adele recorded the Skyfall theme and won both an Oscar and a Grammy for the recording back in 2013, so whoever is lending their pipes to the next Bond movie certainly has big shoes to fill. Mendes has teased that we won’t have to “wait long” to find out which artist got the job, but Bond aficionados are an impatient bunch, so the rumor mill has been churning incessantly for weeks now. British bookies are busy taking bets on just about everything about the James Bond franchise, and THR reports that the following singers have strong odds:
