Zombieland 2 is back on track with Ruben Fleischer directing

2 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Zombieland fans rejoice, because Sony Pictures is looking to put the ill-fated and terrible Amazon sequel series behind them and finally move forward with an actual sequel to the hit 2009 film. Not only that, but they’ve brought back original film director Ruben Fleischer to helm the new installment, and have brought on Godzilla and The Expendables writer Dave Callaham to write the script.

According to Deadline, it’s unclear if any of the original stars will return, as they’ve all become extremely big stars in the last five years. Jesse Eisenberg is of course working on Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice as Lex Luthor, Woody Harrelson is hot on the heels of an Emmy nomination for True Detective and has projects like The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 and Now You See Me 2 (which Eisenberg will also be in) on his slate. Emma Stone may have »

'Zombieland 2' is Back to Life with Ruben Fleischer Directing Again

12 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It's been nearly four years since we heard anything solid about Zombieland 2, and the project was once thought to be in the immediate future of director Ruben Fleischer, but there hasn't been any real progress. The project was assumed dead, but Deadline reports the sequel is now back to life, and Fleischer is returning to direct. As for the script, Dave Callaham (The Expendables, Doom) is tackling the project, coming off a story credit on this summer's successful return of Godzilla at Legendary Pictures. However, it should be noted that Fleischer doesn't have a deal to direct yet, though it doesn't sound like a problem. As for the original cast, it's not clear who will return for the sequel. Emma Stone has blown up since starring in the 2009 film, and Woody Harrelson has been busy with The Hunger Games franchise and "True Detective" has made him more popular than ever. »

The Academy Celebrates The Opening of The Hollywood Costume Exhibition in Los Angeles

16 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

By Gary Salem and Michelle McCue

“What a costume designer does is a cross between magic and camouflage. We create the illusion of changing the actors into what they are not. We ask the public to believe that every time they see a performer on the screen he’s become a different person.”

Edith Head

On Monday, Wamg attended the press preview for the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences groundbreaking multimedia exhibition Hollywood Costume in the historic Wilshire May Company building.

Taking five years to create, this exhibition is the kickoff for the whole Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.

Emphasizing how costumes are so important in creating characters, this one-of-a-kind exhibition comes with its own film score, enhanced with dazzling animations and screenplay excerpts.

Organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (V&A), and sponsored by Swarovski, this ticketed exhibition »

Watch designer Jum Nakao create a 'Marie Antoinette'-inspired dress out of Sofia Coppola's script

21 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Japanese-Brazilian fashion designer Jum Nakao is fascinated by paper. He sees the material as both "very ephemeral, very fragile" and, with the right words scribbled across it, powerful enough to change the world. So when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences asked Nakao to create a piece celebrating the opening of its upcoming "Hollywood Costume," the artist naturally went back to the page. The assignment: Design and construct a dress inspired by the 2006 period drama "Marie Antoinette." The result: A lavish gown composed entirely of pages from Sofia Coppola's script. In the below video, Nakao slices, curls, frills, and stitches the basic Courier-imbued pages into something worthy of the big screen. Waxing poetic on the costuming art, Nakao says, "A costume is like a pixel in a picture. All of the pixels are important, not just the costume, the set or the lighting.When you are inside a perfect costume, »

The Hunger Games has delivered some great soundtrack tunes to accompany the entertaining movies over the years. There are a lot of the young-adult adaptations out there, and for a lot of those movies the soundtrack is the best part of the whole experience. What’s great about The Hunger Games is you get the best out of both worlds and the upcoming soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 shouldn't disappoint. Some past favorites of mine include »

Lorde Releases "Yellow Flicker Beat" for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 Soundtrack—Listen!

29 September 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Words cannot even begin to describe how many feelings we have about Lorde's new song, "Yellow Flicker Beat," released today. The "Royals" singer wrote the song as her addition to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 soundtrack. It's a perfect contribution for the movie's music, with dark, mysterious lyrics and a tune to match. This amazing new single opens with Lorde's mesmerizing voice as she sings, "I'm a princess cut from marble, smoother than a storm and the scars that mark my body, they're silver and gold." It sounds like Katniss herself is the voice behind the words! The song is all about how there is a red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking in »

Listen: Lorde's 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1' Soundtrack Single "Yellow Flicker Beat"

29 September 2014 11:41 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"The Hunger Games" isn't just about blockbuster movies, it's also about blockbuster soundtracks. With the folks behind the franchise managing to nab contributions from Arcade Fire, Taylor Swift, Coldplay, The National, Neko Case and Imagine Dragons for the the last two movies, they've secured the participation of the hottest recording artist of the last two years for this year's franchise installment. None other than Lorde has recorded the lead single for the movie, and you can hear the tune below. The synth heavy "Yellow Flicker Beat" puts a darker shade to Lorde's more stadium ready hits, but perhaps that's appropriate for a tentpole series set in a dystopian future where kids are forced to kill each other in a cruel game. But either way, you won't be humming this on your home from work or school or wherever you listen to this. Press play below and we'll wait to see »

Lorde Unveils The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 Single “Yellow Flicker Beat”

29 September 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Say what you want about young adult book-to-film adaptations, but the large majority of them do come with quality soundtracks.  The Twilight Saga made a point of it, Vampire Academy even has a song selection well worth checking out and The Hunger Games franchise is no different.  For the first Hunger Games film, it was all about Taylor Swift’s “Safe & Sound,” then Catching Fire got Coldplay’s “Atlas” and now The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 has Lorde’s “Yellow Flicker Beat.” Both “Safe & Sound” and “Atlas” are solid songs and right in line with the Hunger Games tone, but neither ever snagged a spot on a personal playlist.  “Yellow Flicker Beat,” however, just did.  Hit the jump to check out the very first single from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 soundtrack.  The film stars Jennifer, Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam HemsworthWoody Harrelson,  Julianne MoorePhilip Seymour Hoffman, »
