Avengers 3 Gets An Official Title, But Infinity War – Part II Is Now “Untitled”

29 July 2016 6:14 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When Marvel Studios announced their Phase 3 slate some time ago, the main event was quite clearly Avengers: Infinity War – Part I and Avengers: Infinity War – Part II. Since then, directors Joe and Anthony Russo have made it clear that the epic sounding movies aren’t actually going to be one big story which will play out over two separate instalments.

Still, they’re shooting them at the same time, so some connectivity seems highly likely, especially as it’s thought that they’ll both revolve around Earth’s Mightiest Heroes taking on Thanos. After confirming earlier this year that the films were going to be retitled though, that’s now appear to have happened, and it really does seem like they will be individual movies.

The first part is now titled Avengers: Infinity War, while the second film is currently being called “Untitled Avengers. »

Avengers: Infinity War Will Be Released As A Standalone Movie; Avengers 4 Now "Untitled"

29 July 2016 5:14 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Wrap has revealed that Avengers: Infinity War will now "exist as one movie" after confirming with Disney that they've updated their release schedule. Avengers: Infinity War (previously titled Avengers: Infinity War - Part I) is the official title of the next instalment, while Avengers: Infinity War Part II has now become "Untitled Avengers." Both of them will still be released in 2018 and 2019 as planned. Of course, just because Avengers: Infinity War is now one movie, that doesn't mean that the team's battle against Thanos won't still unfold over both instalments. Still, it's worth bearing in mind that the Russo Brothers have previously said that these are going to be two standalone stories rather than a single one handled the same way as when The Hunger Games and Harry Potter franchises wrapped up.  More details will hopefully be revealed soon, but for now, we do at least know that the »

9 Sickest Donald Trump Burns at the Democratic Convention

28 July 2016 12:45 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Democrats at their national convention want to tell Americans that whatever they think of Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump is worse. They’re doing it with a barrage of sick burns. Here are some of the best. Elizabeth Banks “Some of you know me from The Hunger Games, in which I play Effie Trinket — a cruel, out-of-touch reality TV star who wears insane wigs while delivering long-winded speeches to a violent dystopia. So when I tuned into Cleveland last week, I was like, ‘Hey, that’s my act.'” Sarah Silverman “This Democratic primary was exemplary.

Meg Ryan’s directorial debut Ithaca gets a trailer and poster

27 July 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After working in Hollywood for over three decades, primarily as an actress, Meg Ryan has finally decided to take a step behind the camera to make her directorial debut with Ithaca, an adaptation of William Saroyan’s 1943 book The Human Comedy. The first trailer and new poster for the film have been released and can both be seen below…

Ryan rose to fame in the mid-to-late 80s with roles in such now-classics as Top Gun and When Harry Met Sally and continued her success in the 90s with Sleepless in SeattleCourage Under Fire and You’ve Got Mail. Her most famous performances are generally considered to be those alongside Tom Hanks, who, as a matter of fact, has a role in the film. Those expecting to see a lot of Hanks when they go to the theaters should temper their expectations, however, as he is only briefly in the »

27 July 2016 1:36 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Amazon has ordered Sony’s “The Last Tycoon” to series. As first reported by Deadline, the TV adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s unfinished 1930s-set final novel will star Matt Bomer as young film exec Monroe Stahr and Kelsey Grammer as his mentor—and soon-to-be enemy—Pat Brady. Rosemarie DeWitt will play Rose Brady, Pat’s possibly two-timing wife, with Lily Collins playing Brady daughter Celia.

The Hunger Games” and “Shattered Glass” scribe Billy Ray will write and direct the series, which comes from Sony’s TriStar TV. The pilot, available to watch now on Amazon Video, drew good reviews from viewers, with 79% giving it a five-star rating.

“The Last Tycoon” already has one TV adaptation, as a 1957 play broadcast by CBS as part of the “Playhouse 90” anthology series, starring Jack Palance as Stahr. Harold Pinter adapted the novel for the big screen in 1976, nabbing Robert DeNiro for the role of Stahr and Robert Mitchum as »

DNC: Lena Dunham, America Ferrera, Elizabeth Banks & More Strong Actresses Slam Trump

27 July 2016 7:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Democratic National Convention kicked off Monday with a host of speeches from powerful luminaries, including First Lady Michelle Obama, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and Senator Bernie Sanders. Yesterday, a different set of luminaries spoke at the convention, specifically famous actresses. Last night, “Girls” star and creator Lena Dunham, former “Ugly Betty” star America Ferrera, and “Pitch Perfect 2” director and “Hunger Games” actress Elizabeth Banks took on Donald Trump and all that he stands for.

Dunham and Ferrera opened their speeches with cheeky references to Donald Trump’s careless attitude towards women and immigrants. Dunham said, “My name is Lena Dunham, and according to Donald Trump, my body is probably a 2,” and Ferrera said, “My name is America Ferrera, and according to Donald Trump, I’m probably a rapist.” Ferrera discussed her experiences as the »

Elizabeth Banks Mocks Donald Trump’s Rnc Entrance at Democratic Convention (Video)

26 July 2016 5:05 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Actress Elizabeth Banks took the stage Tuesday night at the Democratic Convention to Queen’s “We Are The Champions” — complete with fog-machine accompaniment — in a jab at Donald Trump’s entrance at last week’s Republican National Convention. “When I tuned into Cleveland last week I thought, ‘Hey, that’s my act,'” Banks, who plays deranged host Effie Trinket in “The Hunger Games” series of films, said. The classic-rock group took the Gop to task for using its iconic tune “We Are the Champions” at the Rnc in Cleveland last week. The song was played as Trump walked out on stage, »

‘Nerve’ Review: Hey Kids, Don’t Try This At Home

26 July 2016 3:07 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Lionsgate just can’t seem to get enough of those Ya novel adaptations. After the likes of The Hunger Games, Twilight and Divergent, along comes another. But this one strikes a different kind of nerve, which is why it is probably called, well, Nerve. It is actually a smart premise for a film targeted to the app-obsessed teen audience — basically this is Truth Or Dare for the new digital age. As I say in my video review above, this is a movie that rewards risk and divides… »

Film Review: ‘Nerve’

26 July 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In “Nerve,” a dark-heart-of-the-Internet thriller made with a glib pop-up glow, Vee (Emma Roberts), a high school senior in Staten Island who’s the straightest girl in her clique (though she’s cool enough to know her Wu-Tang by heart), gets sucked up into a sinister competition that emerges out of the deep web. It’s a game called Nerve that operates through a smartphone app — though it could just as well have been devised by a savvy TV producer who loved “Fear Factor” and “The Hunger Games” and ordered up a show that was a cross between them.

In the movie, anyone who makes the perilous click to play Nerve chooses to be in one of two groups: players or watchers. The players are the bold ones who act out a series of dares, which start off as innocuous (jumping onto a motorcycle with a leader-of-the-pack stranger) and then »

Stephen Colbert Brings ‘Hunger Games’ Persona To DNC, Tries To Rush The Stage

26 July 2016 8:46 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last week at the Republican National Convention, Stephen Colbert attended the event and brought to life a clever bit called The Hungry for Power Games, inspired by the popular Ya book and film series “The Hunger Games.” Dressed like host Caesar Flickerman, Colbert walked around the convention floor armed with a fake weasel in his hand and proceeded to address the convention from the main stage.

Well, Colbert tried to pull off the same trick at Democratic National Convention last night and had a much harder time trying to get past security. Though he spends some time cracking wise about the political infighting and the email scandal, but the highlight is when he frequently tries to sneak past the guards to get on stage. Colbert even called his friend Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to »

Film Review: ‘Swallows and Amazons’

23 July 2016 2:02 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Based on British author Arthur Ransome’s popular children’s books of the 1930s and 1940s, “Swallows and Amazons” is, on the face of it, a fairly conservative film. Detailing the summer vacation adventures of the upper middle-class Walker family, it is a relaxed piece set in the summer of 1935, in a heritage England of Dundee cake, small boats and blithe acceptance of a broadly colonialist outlook. It is an England where the machinations of Russian spies can be safely foiled in time for tea by a band of plucky children. It is the fictional England to which many Britons who voted for Brexit aspire to return.

Properly understood as a fiction, this rose-tinted world of kids who covet knives in order to whittle sticks — rather than, say, to stab a schoolmate — makes for a very charming, fairly twee, entirely respectable adventure. Of the five Walker children, the standout is »

22 July 2016 10:25 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just a few days ago, news broke that Lionsgate will be forgoing a theatrical release for its final Divergent movie, The Divergent Series: Ascendant, which was previously set for release on June 9, 2017. Instead, the studio will release this franchise finale as a television movie at an undetermined date, which will then segue into a new spinoff TV series. Lionsgate has yet to confirm this news, but while promoting Snowden at Comic-Con 2016, franchise star Shailene Woodley spoke out about the news for the first time.

Deadline caught up with Shailene Woodley at Comic-Con, where she revealed that she was on a plane when the news broke about the franchise finale moving from the big screen to the small screen. Pre-production is currently under way, but it isn't known how this change will affect the production schedule.
