2 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

This post has been updated with new information. Jennifer Lawrence is currently on a press tour for Passengers with Chris Pratt, and her recent stop on The Graham Norton Show earlier this month is causing controversy. After discussing the film, Jennifer told a story about how she used to scratch her butt on ancient and sacred rocks while filming The Hunger Games in Hawaii. "You're not supposed to sit on them because you're not supposed to expose your genitalia to them," she said. "I, however, was in a wetsuit . . . and they were so good for butt itching." She then went on to explain how one of the rocks became loose and it almost killed one of the sound guys.

Jennifer Lawrence can scratch one apology off her list. “The Hunger Games” star took to Facebook on Friday to address the uproar she created last week, after telling a story about nearly killing a crew member while scratching her butt on sacred rocks in Hawaii.

Exciting Casting Rumors for Jurassic World 2

9 hours ago | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

With filming set to begin for the sequel to the excellent Jurassic World, there’s been a huge amount of speculation as to who will feature in the big budget movie.

So far Jurassic World’s Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt have been lined up to make a return to the Jurassic Park franchise - hopefully Howard will have adequate footwear this time - and there are plenty of other familiar faces set to make a reappearance.

In particular it’s the return of B.D. Wong that gives the biggest clues as to how this dinosaur-themed franchise will develop. Wong featured as the sinister Dr Henry Wu in the previous movies, and his role as a geneticist who develops a particularly nasty kind of weaponized dinosaurs means that there’ll be no shortage of action in the next movie.

Ocean’s 8 Finds Its Villain In Damian Lewis

7 December 2016 6:31 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After a period of speculation, it seems that Homeland star Damian Lewis has joined the cast of the upcoming franchise spin off, Ocean’s 8, and will appear as the villain of the piece. With the director of the original Ocean’s trilogy – Steven Soderbergh – on board as producer, the writer-director of this new instalment is Gary Ross (The Hunger Games, Pleasantville), with Olivia Milch co-writing.

The project is already shooting in New York City and features an all-star female cast, including Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Akwkwafina, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter. The character played by Sandra Bullock is essentially the lead, in the same way that George Clooney was the lead in Ocean’s Eleven – while Blanchett plays her ‘deputy’ (equivalent to Brad Pitt in the earlier film).

Damian Lewis is now confirmed to play the former lover of Bullock, and the target of her next heist. »

Damian Lewis joins Ocean’s Eight as villain

7 December 2016 2:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It appears that the ladies of Ocean’s Eight have zeroed in on their heist target, as Variety claims that Homeland actor Damian Lewis is in final negotiations to play the main antagonist and ex-lover of Sandra Bullock’s character in the upcoming all-female Ocean’s Eleven spinoff.

By the sound of it, Lewis will be taking on a role not unlike that of Andy Garcia’s Terry Benedict in much of Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s trilogy. Originally, it was believed that the actor would only be making a cameo in the film after he was spotted on set, but it soon became clear that his role was much larger than that.

Since leaving Homeland after three seasons with an Emmy and Golden Globe for Best Actor – Drama in his hands, Lewis has been working steadily, starring in such TV projects as Wolf Hall and Billions. Billions drew in »
