Amy Schumer explains to Jon Stewart how she ended up on a jet ski with Jennifer Lawrence

12 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Is shipping a pair of famous galpals a thing? It must be, because the Internet is freaking out over the evidence that two of the chillest, funniest, most beloved actress in Hollywood today are buddies. When Amy Schumer appeared on “The Daily Show” last night, she chatted about her recent Hamptons vacation where she met up with Jennifer Lawrence for some jet skiing and boating. Schumer was vacationing with some friends from high school who, naturally, freaked out at the opportunity to hang out with Lawrence. “She’s the coolest chick you’ll ever meet,” Schumer said of “The Hunger Games” star. Her appearance on “The Daily Show” was barely under the wire — this is Stewart’s final week on the Comedy Central show. It’s actually surprising that the rising starlet didn’t visit “Daily Show” sooner since she’s also part of the Comedy Central family. (Her sketch comedy series, »

Mr. Robinson Review – TV NBC

15 hours ago | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Mr. Robinson isn’t a show for everyone, which is largely a function of the fact that Welcome Back, Kotter wasn’t for everyone, and owed a lot of the success it had to limited alternatives.

Don’t get me wrong, Welcome Back, Kotter was not only a great show, but it managed a surprising amount of influence on the landscape of television for decades… it just wasn’t for everyone.

Mr. Robinson stars Craig Robinson as a part-time substitute/part-time singer who runs into an old flame and hopes to rekindle things. When he learns that she now teaches at their old High School, he takes the first chance he gets to substitute there.

Mr. Robinson is laid-back almost to a fault… well, probably to a fault. He quickly hints that he wasn’t very serious about school, and hasn’t been very serious about anything since, but he »

The selling short of Inside Out

15 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Why is such an individual family film as Inside Out being used to sell broadband and sandwiches, even while the movie is in cinemas?

Sometimes, it's nice to live in the unrealistic world of my head. When I watched Pixar's latest movie, Inside Out, there were so many things I loved about it, it was hard to organise them all, but I loved I managed to come to the film relatively fresh, meeting the characters in their natural environment.

One thing I particularly cherished too was just how standalone it all felt. That there was no sequel being set up, and that a group of characters (and characteristics) that I'd rooted for over 90 minutes were left within the walls of the movie. Notwithstanding that Inside Out is a big Disney blockbuster, it felt utterly contained. That it's gone on to take over $600m at the worldwide box office is something worth celebrating, »

Lionsgate Finds a Director for ‘Naruto’ Movie

3 August 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

If Lionsgate bringing Power Rangers back to the big screen isn’t doing anything for you, maybe importing another popular Japanese property will do the trick. The studio that brought you The Hunger Games, Divergent and The Expendables is adapting the insanely popular manga Naruto for a feature film, and they’ve even got a director lined […]

Marvel Phase 2: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

2 August 2015 7:33 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The release of Ant-Man marks the official end of Marvel's Phase 2 films.  With Phase 3 set to kick off next Summer, we thought it'd be a great time to take a look at how the second Phase of the Marvel Universe did overall.  Come inside to check out our thoughts! 

The commercial success of the McU has proven that comic book films are here to stay. Audiences have enthusiastically embraced Disney’s films that bring their favorite comic book characters to the big screen. Phase 1 was proof of concept. It was possible to have several comic book character-based movies take place in the same universe. The original Avengers film was proof that audiences would enjoy seeing them working together to fight bad guys. Phase 2 is all about maintaining that trend while introducing new faces. Was Disney successful in accomplishing its goals? What can they do to improve Phase 3? This is a »

Box Office: 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' is Tom Cruise's 19th movie to open no. 1

2 August 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" earned $56 million domestically this weekend to easily beat another newcomer, "Vacation," for the top spot.  While Paramount and the film's major financier, Skydance, have to wonder why it didn't open bigger after rave reviews and an A- Cinemascore rating it could have been much worse.  Pre-release polling from some services were as low as a $42-50 million debut.  For comparison's sake, "M:i-2" debuted to $57 million 15 years ago.  With an estimated production budget of $150 million, "Rogue Nation" will have to fare much better overseas and it's off to a great start with $65 million internationally so far. As for Cruise, you could technically say this is his 20th no. 1 opener, but he wasn't even mentioned in the "Tropic Thunder" billing block or top credits (i.e., his name appears nowhere on the poster) and when you're going to track these things, well, that matters.  The 53-year-old actor »

31 July 2015 9:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

An Instagram post from Josh Gad (Frozen) has confirmed that he has finished filming his scenes in 2017’s live-action Beauty and the Beast film. The picture shows him embracing co-star Luke Evans (Dracula Untold) on a snowy set for the film. The caption reads, “That’s a wrap! Will miss the cast of #beautyandthebeast especially my brilliant Gaston #LukeEvans.” See it here…

In the film, Gad plays Lefou, the bumbling sidekick to the arrogant and egotistical Gaston, who is played by Evans. 

Along with those two, Emma Watson (Harry Potter) and Dan Stevens (The Guest) will star as Belle and the Beast respectively, with Ian McKellen (X-Men: Days of Future Past) as Cogsworth, Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks) as Mrs. Potts, Kevin Kline (Last Vegas) as Belle’s father Maurice, Audra McDonald (Private Practice) as Garderobe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Belle) as Plumette, Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games) as Cadenza and »

Insurgent Blu-ray Review

31 July 2015 4:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Robert Schwentke

Cast: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Naomi Watts, Kate Winslet, Jai Courtney

Certificate: 12

Running Time: 112 minutes

Ever since Harry Potter and Twilight spearheaded the craze of turning young adult fiction into films we’ve had a plethora of book-to-screen adaptations. Some have been good, others so not much. The current crown holder is of course The Hunger Games, but the franchise reaches it’s conclusion later this year with Mockingjay Part Two. There are many contenders waiting to snatch the crown away from Katniss and the Divergent series is just one franchise that is biding it’s time.

Starring Shailene Woodley, the series follows the antics of young woman Tris who seeks to change her dystopian world. Set during an undisclosed time period in the remains of a ruined Chicago, society has bundled itself behind a wall and has separated itself into ‘factions’. These »

Rumor: Jena Malone's Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice Role Finally Revealed

30 July 2015 12:54 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When it was revealed that Jena Malone had been cast in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (a role she dyed her hair red for), fans immediately began speculating that she would be playing Carrie Kelly. After all, this movie is taking inspiration from Frank Miller's classic The Dark Knight Returns, so that theory made at least some sense. Then, The Hollywood Reporter weighed in by indicating that they had heard that was indeed the role The Hunger Games star had been chosen for.  Maybe not! According to Latino-Review, Malone has actually been cast as Barbara Gordon, a character better know to us all as either Batgirl or Oracle! They're not sure what exactly her role in Batman v Superman will be, but Snyder could really go either way with the character here.  Malone always seemed a bit old for Carrie, and Barbara - another redhead - seems like »

The Weinstein Company Moves Up Awards Contender 'Carol,' Pushes Back Bradley Cooper-Starring Chef Comedy

Read More: Cannes Review: Todd Haynes' 'Carol' is a Masterful Lesbian Romance Starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara As awards season approaches at an ever-more rapid rate, The Weinstein Company has made a few changes to their upcoming schedule, including an earlier release date for Todd Haynes' awards favorite and Cannes hit,  "Carol." The drama will now open in limited release on November 20, moving up nearly a full month from its original release date of December 18. Starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, the feature will now go up directly against the final "Hunger Games" film, "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 2," but should benefit from an earlier start than was originally planned. TWC has also pushed back their Bradley Cooper chef comedy, once known as "Adam Jones," from October 2 to October 23. The film has also been retitled "Burnt," marking its second title change -- it was originally known as. »

How's this for a '90s flashback?! "Xena: Warrior Princess" stars Renee O'Connor and Lucy Lawless sent fans into a frenzy last night when they reunited for the first time in what feels like forever. "Still hanging with my gal #Reneeoconnor @reallucylawless #xena #gabrielle," Lawless captioned the photo above on Instagram -- showing how great they both look 14 years after the cult classic went off the air. The sighting comes just days after it was reported NBC is looking into reviving the '90s TV series. The network was said to be quietly prepping a reboot, with search underway for writers. The Hollywood Reporter added that everyone would love to have the original stars return in some capacity, whether that's on screen or working behind the scenes.

29 July 2015 6:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Stx Entertainment has moved its crime thriller “The Secret in Their Eyes” back a month from Oct. 23 to Nov. 20 — when it will launch against Lionsgate’s “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.”

Roberts plays an FBI investigator whose team is torn apart when they discover that the “unidentified female body” abandoned in a garage dumpster is her teenage daughter. Her friend and co-worker, played by Ejiofor, continues digging every day for 13 years until he uncovers a new lead.

“The Secret in Their Eyes” is directed by Billy Ray and produced by Mark Johnson and Im Global’s Matt Jackson. The film is the first potential awards contender and only the second release from year-old Stx, which launches its first title on Aug. 7, opening with the thriller “The Gift. »

Jennifer Lawrence Would Die In The Arena, According To A Hunger Games Simulator

29 July 2015 12:57 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

I don.t know about you, but when I watch a movie where the characters go through a harrowing situation I always wonder to myself how far I would make it in the same circumstances, or how long the actors would last. Now there.s a simulator that looks to examine how long cast members of The Hunger Games would last in a real battle to the death, and according to these results, star Jennifer Lawrence would totally lose. Late last year, a developer with the awesome name Brant Steel created a program designed to imitate the kids-murdering-kids-for-entertainment action of The Hunger Games. You can throw any old picture.of yourself, a loved one, a fictional character, whatever.into the simulator to see how long you will last. MTV got the brilliant idea to actually use the cast of The Hunger Games to see who would emerge the victor in »

Media Companies Hope Box Office Bounty Masks TV Troubles

29 July 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Movies … now more than ever.” It’s a made-up slogan used by a fictional movie studio at the center of the 1992 film “The Player.” Some of today’s biggest media companies likely wish this confident pronouncement were real.

Box office isn’t typically the biggest contributor to the bottom lines of entertainment giants like Time Warner, 21st Century Fox, Viacom and Disney, but in an era when normal patterns of ad spending are in massive flux, executives at those companies may feel more warmly toward Hollywood than they do Madison Avenue, even though film success has long been more unpredictable. “You know you are in trouble when the only positive media data point in the quarter is the U.S. box office,” said Michael Nathanson, a financial analyst who covers the media industry, in a recent research note.
