Discovery Times Square, New York
The wildly popular books and films get a museum-quality show that mixes props, costumes and holograms with discussion of the series’ weightier themes
Finally, a way for us commoners from the Districts to get a glimpse of the Capitol. Fans of The Hunger Games, the wildly successful dystopian young adult book trilogy with its fourth and final film adaptation headed to cinemas in November, can now live the experience without having to partake in any battles, uprisings or publicity tours.
Discovery Times Square is a midtown Manhattan event space whose exhibitions range from populist art and history (Terracotta Warriors, King Tut, the Dead Sea Scrolls) to tourist traps more shameful than 80s-era 42nd street porno theaters (CSI: The Experience). With The Hunger Games: The Exhibition, it has a winner on its hands. Like the Jennifer Lawrence-starring films – particularly the second one – this museum-like »

If you’ve been paying close attention to the marketing campaign for Terminator Genisys, then you’ll know that Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions have given away a major plot point regarding Jason Clarke’s John Connor, both in the promotional trailers, and the character poster you can see to your left (apologies if you’d managed to avoid spoilers until now).
It certainly seemed baffling that the studio would choose to give away such a major twist, and judging from comments from director Alan Taylor during a promotional interview with Uproxx, it appears he’s a little puzzled by it all too:
“I certainly directed those scenes with the intention that no one would know. One of my favorite moments – and I think Jason Clarke did a great job with it – is when he walks into the hospital in 2017 and everything from there until the turn, you’re supposed to think, »

“We’re like healers… or something.”
Newcomer – oh, god, the puns – Elizabeth Banks (Pitch Perfect 2, The Hunger Games) joins the Channing Tatum-led cast that also includes hardbody eye candy (also professional actors) Matt Bomer, Adam Rodriguez, and Joe Manganiello.
Magic Mike’s creator Steven Soderbergh retired (sort of), passing along directorial duties to his longtime friend Gregory Jacobs, and Matthew McConaughey is nowhere in sight, but that won’t stop the Kings of Tampa. In the sequel, they go on the road to Myrtle Beach for a – wait for it – stripper convention.
Well, this should be fun.
We talked to Tatum, Bomer, Maganiello, and Rodriquez about just how much nudity is onscreen in Magic Mike Xxl:

Julia Roberts makes her return to the big screen to play a vengeful FBI agent in the gripping trailer for Secret in Their Eyes.
This adaptation of the bestselling novel The Question in Their Eyes casts Roberts as the mother of a young girl sadistically murdered by a serial killer.
When the killer is released because of bureau improprieties, Jess (Roberts) starts working outside of the law to track the murderer.
It's up to Jess's former FBI teammates (Chiwetel Ejiofor and Nicole Kidman) to catch the killer before Jess can exact her own form of revenge.
Secret in Their Eyes was previously adapted for the screen as an Argentine movie, which earned a Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.
Roberts's lead role in the big-screen thriller is her first since »
A tight-knit team of rising FBI investigators – Ray (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and Jess (Julia Roberts), along with their District Attorney supervisor Claire (Nicole Kidman) – is suddenly torn apart when they discover that Jess’s teenage daughter has been brutally and inexplicably murdered.
Now, thirteen years later, after obsessively searching every day for the elusive killer, Ray finally uncovers a new lead that he’s certain can permanently resolve the case, nail the vicious murderer, and bring long-desired closure to his team. No one is prepared, however, for the shocking, unspeakable secret that will reveal the enduring, destructive effects of personal vengeance on the human soul.
Interweaving past and present, this deeply layered mystery explores the murky boundaries between justice and revenge, and asks the question: how far would you »

Written and directed by Academy Award nominee Billy Ray (Captain Phillips, The Hunger Games), and produced by Academy Award winner Mark Johnson (Rain Man, Breaking Bad), Secret in Their Eyes is an intense, powerful, haunting thriller. The powerful ensemble cast is lead by Academy Award nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Academy Award winners Nicole Kidman and Julia Roberts. We have the first trailer, which offers a sneak peek at what could be one of this year's biggest award contenders.

It takes a certain kind of responsibility to carry a badge and a gun. In law enforcement, one must trust in their own moral compass enough to remain impartial and just – even when the circumstances of a particular crime are deeply, devastatingly personal. That’s the dilemma faced by Julia Roberts in this fall’s remake Secret in Their Eyes – an FBI investigator, she’s suddenly faced with her worst nightmare when someone found savagely murdered in a dumpster turns out to be her own daughter. The first trailer for the star-laden thriller fully imparts the horror of her situation.
Chiwetel Ejiofor and Nicole Kidman co-star as the investigator’s partner and presiding district attorney, respectively, both of whom agonize over being forced to let the suspected killer walk free. Neither can let it go – and 13 years later, the partner comes back to the case, having gathered what he believes »

Stx Entertainment has released a new trailer for the upcoming thriller Secret in Their Eyes. Based on the 2009 Argentine film of the same name, the movie stars Julia Roberts and Chiwetel Ejiofor as FBI agents Jess and Ray, respectively, whose lives are turned upside down when Jess’ daughter is found murdered, for seemingly no reason. Years later, their inability to bring the killer to justice still haunts Ray—until he finds a new lead that may prove integral to catching the murderer and giving his colleague (and himself) some peace. The dramatic thriller is the third directorial effort from Billy Ray, who previously wrote and helmed Shattered Glass and Breach but is best known for penning the screenplays for films like The Hunger Games and Captain Phillips. I’ve not seen the original Secret in Their Eyes so I can only speak to Ray’s iteration, but the film looks »

It's a film that's on my Oscar 2016 predictions list, as Chiwetel Ejiofor could see another Best Actor nomination for his performance in the American remake of the Argentine crime thriller, "The Secret in Their Eyes." It was a role that Denzel Washington was reportedly offered initially, but it eventually went to Ejiofor, who is surrounded by actresses also lauded for their past work - Nicole Kidman (nominated for Oscar thrice, won once) and Julia Roberts (nominated 4 times, also won once). Billy Ray, known more for his writing of scripts for critically-acclaimed movies like "Captain Phillips," "The Hunger Games," "State of »

“I’m just weary of the grind and have been for 20 years,” the eight-time Daytime Emmy winner said in May after announcing his exit. “I really don’t want to die, collapsing in a heap, on that Gh set one day. That wouldn’t be too poetic.”
Geary’s departure has allowed for a few key Gh reunions, including »
With the recent trend of dystopian films based on Young Adult novels doing so well at the box office – like The Hunger Games and Divergent, for example – it was only a matter of time before we headed back to the beginning.
Overriding the system isn’t just a game for the under-25 set. The genre has produced heroes from every walk of life who brought down corrupt systems – or at least tried to. Dystopian films have embraced the idea of rebellion for decades, churning out futuristic flicks like The Matrix, Blade Runner, Children of Men, and Snowpiercer.
Arnold Schwarzenegger returns as the titular Terminator this weekend in Terminator Genisys alongside "Game of Thrones"' Emilia Clarke, Divergent’s Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke, J.K. Simmons, and “Doctor Who”’s Matt Smith in an undisclosed role.
