Harker’s Hits: Weekly Roundup!

12 February 2016 4:00 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

It’s been a busy week in Hollywood! Check out some highlights below and then head off to see Deadpool again. We know you were at the Thursday previews … We all were, which is why Ryan Reynolds’ revamped superhero broke box-office records. The $12.7 million dollars it raked in Thursday night was more than any other R-rated movie had in the whole history of ever. Both fans and critics are in love with it. Even Last Golden Girl Standing Betty White raved about it! (Warning: Nsfw language, so listen with your earbuds!)

• Following in the wake of MTV’s successful Scream (and Fox’s less successful Scream Queens), Freeform (the erstwhile ABC Family) is jumping on the horror bandwagon with Dead Of Summer. Conceived by Once Upon A Time creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, the show cast two of the stars from their fairy-tale series: Elizabeth Mitchell, who played Ingrid, »

First Look: Kellan Lutz, Kelsey Grammar, and Chinese Superstar Li Bingbing Fight Man-Eating Spiders in 'Nest'

11 February 2016 11:56 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Darclight, the genre-driven label of Arclight films, is handling worldwide sales of the Chinese-Australian co-production, with an international cast that also includes Stef Dawson ("The Hunger Games: Mockingjay"), Chinese pop star Wu Chun, and Shane Jacobson ("The Dressmaker"). The film has already been sold in several territories in South and Southeast Asia, as well as Australia and New Zealand. "Nest," from director Kimble Rendall ("Bait 3D"), follows a team of scientists who lose their colleague in an ancient labyrinth, and must battle a swarm of deadly, man-eating funnel web spiders — discovering the secret behind the arachnids’ power and intelligence in the process. The largest Chinese-Australian co-production to date, with investment funding from Screen Australia and Screen Queensland, the film's visual effects will be created by Cutting Edge and Oscar-winning CG concern Rising Sun Pictures ("X-Men: Days of Future Past," »

Watch: Hemsworth, Theron, Blunt & Chastain in New Trailer for 'The Huntsman: Winter's War'

11 February 2016 10:29 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Post-"Fury Road," Charlize Theron returns with Chris Hemsworth and some sparkling new additions in the prequel to "Snow White and The Huntsman." With Kristen Stewart's Snow White gone, in packaging the follow-up Universal chief Donna Langley cobbled together the strongest remaining elements for "The Huntsman: Winter's War" (April 22, 2016). Directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, the Oscar-nominated VFX master behind the first film, this "epic-adventure" brings back the huntsman Eric (Hemsworth) and evil Queen Ravenna (Theron), who are joined by an ice queen and a warrior huntsman played by two strong actresses with action movie bonafides, Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain, respectively. The plot was clearly influenced by the success of "The Hunger Games" (see Chastain's braids, leather jerkin and bow and arrow), Disney's "Frozen" as well as producer Joe Roth's "Maleficent" and "Alice in Wonderland."

Study: Female Protagonists On the Rise in Hollywood But the Majority Are White

9 February 2016 10:19 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Maybe it’s the post-“Hunger Games” effect, but the likes of Katniss Everdeen, Rey, and the Black Widow are making some dents in Hollywood’s glass ceiling. But it’s not good news for everyone.

Though the number of female protagonists in major films trails that of men, women comprised 22% of leads in the top 110 grossing films, 34% of major characters, and 33% of all speaking characters, according to research by the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film at San Diego State University. The number of protagonists was a 6% increase from last year, as well as a recent historical high. The number of major characters and speaking parts represented increases of 5 and 3 percentage points.

The study’s results were calculated as a number of female-driven films such as Amy Schumer’s “Trainwreck,” the erotic drama “Fifty Shades of Grey,” and Disney’s live action “Cinderella” enjoyed strong box office results. »

The Divergent Series Finale Ascendant Loses Director Robert Schwentke

9 February 2016 7:44 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Going four for four with its Divergent series, Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment will launch Allegiant into theaters across the globe next month, welcoming back Shailene Woodley, Theo James and director Robert Schwentke, before closing the book on the dystopian Ya series in 2017.

Such an accelerated production schedule – one that closely resembles that of The Hunger Games – has seemingly caused Schwentke to call time on the franchise, with Deadline reporting that the director won’t return at the helm for next year’s Ascendant. Having already taken the reins of both Insurgent and soon-to-be-released threequel Allegiant, all signs pointed to Schwentke seeing out the series until its finale in 2017, though it’s now confirmed that the German filmmaker won’t return for the sequel formerly known as Allegiant – Part 2.

Neither Lionsgate nor Summit Entertainment disclosed an official reason for Schwentke’s departure, though sources close to Deadline claim that tackling the »

The final Divergent film needs a new director

Director Robert Schwentke departs the Shailene Woodley-headlined Divergent: Ascendant...

For a while, it looked like the Divergent series was set to mirror the four The Hunger Games movies in its approach to directors. That is, one person made the first film, and someone else ultimately came in to make the final three.

It was Neil Burger who first brought Divergent to the screen, before Robert Schwentke was hired for the second film, Insurgent. It was then announced that Schwentke was to direct the final two movies as well, Allegiant and Ascendant. But now, as we head towards the release of Allegiant, we learn that Schwentke has departed the series ahead of the last film.

According to Deadline, Schwentke "just needed a break", having made the last two movies pretty much back to back.

Given that Ascendant is due in cinemas in June 2017, that means that »

Critic's Notebook: Rivals Feast on Rubio at Gop Debate

6 February 2016 8:57 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

It's tempting to compare Saturday night's Gop debate to The Hunger Games, but that really wouldn't be fair: The Hunger Games was far less violent. The debate, held three days before the crucial New Hampshire primary, made the previous events seem like church socials. And why not? The stakes have gotten much, much higher, with Ted Cruz winning the Iowa caucuses even while being accused of dirty tricks; Marco Rubio declaring victory even though he came in third; Donald Trump — yes, he's back — threatening to sue (what else is new?); and the governors' troika of Jeb Bush, John Kasich

Did 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Cost 'Mockingjay Part 2' $50-$100M?

6 February 2016 2:28 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If you're going to blame someone, blame the terrorists. And if that doesn't work, blame Star Wars. That's Lionsgate's position this weekend as it tries to explain why franchise closer The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 underperformed to expectations at the box office. During a conference call this past Saturday morning, Lionsgate execs agreed that Mockingjay Part 2 did underperform by at least $100M. But they also claim that their TV division helped make up for the loss.

The conference call kicked off with Lionsgate executives announcing that they are increasing their 2017 release slate. Next year, they will bump up their output to four additional movies, from 13 to 17 feature films that will get a wide release. They also confirmed that they are aiming for overall lower film costs. The studio plans to focus on 'discipline production spends and a diverse portfolio'. While this was seen as good news by most, »

Lionsgate Stock Plunges After 'Mockingjay 2' Disappoints

5 February 2016 9:35 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Shares of Lionsgate tanked Friday after an analyst call where top studio execs failed to reassure investors over weaker-than-expected box office for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2. Lionsgate shares fell $8.21, or 32 percent, to $17.20 during mid-day trading on the New York Stock Exchange, a fall that also followed confirmation that Starz acquisition talks had resumed. Lionsgate reported Thursday "softer than anticipated" performance at the multiplex for its movie releases.
