“No matter how many times I get up and tell this story,
or how many people read the book,
it’s nothing compared to how many people will watch this film.
So my job is done. Mission complete.”
I like war films – always have.

Yes! We've been waiting all day for this glorious slice of cinema to drop its official trailer and poster. And now, here it is! The Hungover Games!
After celebrating Doug's upcoming wedding in a cut rate hotel in Laughlin, Nevada, our hungover party-ers, Bradley, Ed and Zach, wake up in a strange room in an even stranger world... and without their pal, Doug. After meeting the haughty and flighty Effing and the gruff, alcoholic Justmitch, our trio puts the pieces together and realizes that they are on a train car headed to The Hungover Games. But instead of the twelve districts of The Hunger Games, our guys have to go toe to toe against various Pop Culture Districts, including The Superhero District, The Middle Earth District, the Puppet District, and the Johnny Depp District.

In order to make sure The Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer had as little impact as possible, Variety dropped a huge news story yesterday that Fast & Furious star Gal Gadot will be playing Wonder Woman in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman. How big of a role will she play? Will this lead to a solo movie? Will she be able to pull the character off? The Flickering Myth writing team give their thoughts...
Anthony Donovan Stokes: If they were going for the most unremarkable choice possible this was a major success.
Luke Owen: This is exactly what Anghus was writing about in his Amazing Spider-Man 2 article. It's simply fan service to compete with Avengers to add a non-developed Wonder Woman into a movie that already features Batman and Superman. »

UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 29th November to Sunday 1st December 2013....
As expected, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire made it two weeks in a row at the top of the UK box office, with the Jennifer Lawrence-headlined sequel adding another £5.5 million in its second weekend to give the film an impressive £21.7 million after just 11 days.
That puts it just behind the entire haul of The Hunger Games (£23.8 million), as well as the £22.5 million take of Gravity, which held on to second place with a fourth weekend take of £1.74 million.
Turning to the new arrivals and the CG-animated Free Birds led the pack with £1,044,074 to take third, followed by Disney's Saving Mr. Banks in fourth with £795,615 and the remake of Carrie in fifth with £662,625.
Number one this time last year: Skyfall
1. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire - £5,525,476 weekend; £21,711,143 total (2 weeks)
2. Gravity - £1,741,279 weekend »

Now that Universal has a release date set for the long delayed The Seventh Son (which they inherited from Warner Bros. when Legendary Pictures moved away from the studio), they're looking at getting another fantasy young adult adaptation off the ground. THR has word that Universal is adapting Laini Taylor's first book in a fantasy trilogy, Daughter of Smoke & Bone, published in September of 2011. Michael Gracey (who is supposed to direct Tom Hardy as Elton John in Rocketman) will be at the helm of the film which will again feature a female hero, hoping to cash in on the craze surrounding The Hunger Games franchise. The book has plenty of accolades including being named among Publishers Weekly's Best Books of 2011, Huffington Post's Top 10 Young Adult Book of 2011 and also one of The New York Times' Notable Children’s Books of 2011. Here's the official synopsis of the story: Around the world, »

You’ve seen smoother, more elegant con movies than “American Hustle,” but probably none quite so big-hearted or so rudely, insistently entertaining. As directed by that master of modern farce, David O. Russell, this sprawling fictionalized account of the notorious Abscam case is less a dramatic FBI procedural than a human comedy writ large, ringing a series of screwball variations on themes of duplicity and paranoia against a dazzling ’70s backdrop. Deliriously funny and brilliantly acted by a cast of Russell returnees, the film is also overlong, undisciplined and absent the sort of emotional payoff that made “Silver Linings Playbook” so satisfying, which could affect its otherwise solid theatrical prospects. Still, this star-studded Sony prestige release is a near-continual pleasure to spend 135 minutes with, repeatedly hitting that comic sweet spot where corruption and buffoonery collide.

In this month's issue of The Hollywood Reporter, The Hunger Games director Gary Ross wrote a bit about casting Paul Walker in one of the actor's first roles: the naive jock Skip Martin in 1998's Pleasantville: But before I could even call him to tell him he had the part, Paul showed up in the casting office. He was broke back then — really broke — and he was coming back to pick up his 8-by-10 headshots. He figured if we were all done with them, he could save the money on having new ones printed. It's like reusing a plastic fork. »

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is poised to enter the top 10 biggest sellers of 2013, with The Hobbit: The Desolation posing its greatest end-of-year threat
• More on the UK box office
• Hunger Games: Catching Fire – review
Following its sensational debut the previous weekend, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire had no problem hanging on to the top spot, with a gross (£5.53m) more than triple its nearest rival, Gravity, with £1.74m. The drop for Catching Fire – down 46% – will be considered respectable, given the huge anticipation for the film, which saw fans rush to see it on opening weekend. The original Hunger Games fell only 33% in its second frame, but declining revenue curves for sequels are invariably steeper. Last November, the final Twilight dropped 66% in its second session.

In the current Ya world of adaptions, that’s sure to become drowned in offerings, next up for the big screen fling is Laini Taylor’s Daughter Of Smoke & Bone. Although this could be one quick to dismiss, the book has a lot of plaudits across the globe for its truly original nature in content, so before you sigh in a hope we won’t have another Twilight, I think we could lean towards The Hunger Games but something that particularly interests me is the comparisons to a Pan’S Labyrinth vibe, so here’s what to expect:
In general, Karou has managed to keep her two lives in balance. On the one hand, she’s a seventeen-year-old art student in Prague; on the other, errand-girl to a monstrous creature who is the closest thing she has to family. Raised half in our world, half in ‘Elsewhere’, she has never »
