"...starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore, Jeffrey Wright, Sutherland and Philip Seymour Hoffman, the story continues to follow 'Katniss Everdeen' (Lawrence) who, after escaping the 'Third Quarter Quell', becomes a reluctant hero and symbol of hope for the nation of 'Panem'.

You may not know it, but a futuristic thriller that opened overseas last year to glowing reviews and hefty box office business snuck into Us theatres less than a couple of weeks ago. Yes, I said snuck. Oh, and two of the actresses in it are recent Oscar winners. And the main star was a major part of the third highest grossing film of all time. Speaking of grosses, the director helmed South Korea’s biggest grossing movie…of all time. So, where are the billboards, when did the TV spots air? Most importantly, why didn’t they show the film to the press, so we can generate a little word-of-mouth buzz before opening day? Perhaps it’s because this is not a sequel or a reboot, and it’s not about a popular superhero (it is based on a graphic novel, though a fairly obscure French work). This is »

Well, X-Men: Days of Future Past’s stay as the biggest earner of the year didn’t last long, with Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction shrugging aside almost universal negative reviews to become the highest-grossing movie of 2014 so far, with a whopping $752 million worldwide just three weekends after its release. The fourth instalment in the Hasbro franchise looks set to become the first (and only?) release of the year to crack a billion, although The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies may have something to say about that.
Transformers: Age of Extinction is out now, with Bay directing a cast that includes Mark Wahlberg (Pain & Gain), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did), Nicola Peltz (Bates Motel), Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger), Li Bingbing (Resident Evil: Retribution), Sophia Myles (Underworld), Victoria Summer (Saving Mr. Banks), Titus Welliver (Lost) and T.J.

Thor and Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor’s hotly-anticipated reboot of the Terminator franchise has gained another cast member. According to Deadline, Big Love and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters alum Douglas Smith has just landed an as-yet-unidentified role.
With the film currently shooting in New Orleans, it’s likely that it won’t be a huge part, though I could easily see him playing a young John Connor. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see until the film opens on July 1, 2015 to find out.
Written by Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry), this film is a quasi-reboot/sequel/relaunch of the beloved Terminator property, and is meant to spark a new trilogy. Arnold Schwarzenegger is reprising his role as the titular killing machine, and will be joined by new cast members.

President Snow is stressing the importance of the citizens of Panem uniting as the country continues to transform in his “Second Panem Address: Unity.” Entirely dressed in white, and surrounded by Peeta, Johanna and soldiers in white, the president reinforces the idea that the nation is stronger than it has ever been before. After the leader insists the entire country has one voice, and the Capitol and districts are bound together, the address is interrupted by what the Capital insists is technical difficulties. “President Snow’s Second Panem Address: Unity” is the latest video promoting the next installment in the hit sci-fi adventure ‘The Hunger Games’ film series.

After graduating from the HBO series Big Love with roles in Ya adaptation Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and horror comedy Stage Fright, Douglas Smith is continuing to rise in Hollywood with news that he’s landed a supporting role in Paramount’s hotly anticipated franchise reboot Terminator: Genesis.
No information yet on who Smith is playing, but the film is currently rolling cameras in New Orleans, so I can’t imagine it’s an especially important part. Regardless, Smith is a talented young actor, and it’s exciting to see his star rise with a role in a tentpole as surely lucrative as Terminator: Genesis.
The movie, directed by Game of Thrones and Thor: The Dark World helmer Alan Taylor, is currently shooting. The script was written by Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) with an eye to igniting a new trilogy of Terminator movies for Paramount, »

Adapted from the classic 1930′s novel by Arthur Ransome, Swallows & Amazons celebrates its 40th Anniversary this year, and what better way to commemorate this than by releasing it beautifully restored on Special Edition DVD and Blu-Ray, for older and younger generations to watch.
The film follows four children on holiday with their mother at the Lake District in 1929. For many parents today this would come as a shock, as the mother allows them to sail in the small boat ‘Swallow’, to a small island and camp for a few days. They eventually come to realise the island is someones territory, and meet two girls who both look like they stepped out from Wes Anderson’s film, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou. The girls sail the ‘Amazon’ boat, and soon both groups set up »

As the only female in the band, Emily is used to being hit on by audience members and picked on by her band members. Perpetually the butt of elaborate pranks masterminded by Mike and Pops, she always has to be looking over her shoulder. Emily and Jake have been dating for almost four years and their bickering is a constant while out on the road. As the only band member with a somewhat legit job, she is usually the most stressed about the sheer volume of gigs they perform. When she is not playing polka, she’s shooting her crossbow (her idol is Katniss from The Hunger Games), throwing pottery or forcing the rest of the band to go kayaking.

Hauntingly grim, full of appalling ironies and awful truths. This is most definitely not the feel-good movie of the summer. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m a big Sf geek
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
I have not read the source material

There’s a reason why Snowpiercer — which could have, theoretically, easily been a centerpiece summer film for a major Hollywood studio — is getting handled with the timid kid gloves of an arthouse release by the industry, quietly dribbling into a few cinemas here and there instead of getting a big opening-weekend push out onto three thousand screens. It’s a reason that has a lot to do with what the film has to say about human nature, hope, despotism, and a revolutionary spirit that might want to counter that despotism. What Snowpiercer is about offers too harsh »

Roll up, rollup...'The Hunger Games' and 'Interstellar' star Wes Bentley is the latest to sign up for FX's 'American Horror Story: Freak Show'. The 35 year old actor is set to play a character named Eddie, according to TV Line. Eddie is said to be 'a dark tormentor from Kathy Bates' characters past who is hell-bent on revenge.' The fourth season of the hit horror show will return to the screen this coming October and Bentley (below) will be making an appearance during the show's typical two-part Halloween episode. The new season sees returning players Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, Frances Conroy and Kathy Bates all back for more. Show newcomer Michael Chiklis ('Fantastic Four') is also on board set to play a strongman in the Freak Show. »
There are still four months to go until the first of two Mockingjay films The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 arrives in cinemas and the superb publicity behind the film continued this week with the second President Snow address.
This one started much like the first, with Donald Sutherland spouting propaganda about unity and keeping former victor Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) at his side to prove how in control he is. This second teaser, however, threw fans into a frenzy. At first, the shock was simply at the inclusion of Johanna Mason (Jena Malone), who said herself in Catching Fire that she cannot be hurt anymore because there’s nobody left she loves. Yet, the feisty Johanna is seen standing at the president’s side for the address, just like Peeta. Though there are no smiles to be seen, with both of them looking very serious and more like furniture, she »

A brand new teaser video has arrived from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, in which President Snow attempts to address the world of Panem with a message of unity. According to Snow, the Capitol and the Districts are now working in perfect harmony, although his message is undermined somewhat by the intervention of Jeffrey Wright’s computer whizz, Beetee… Hijacking the official broadcast, Wright’s character presents a lone voice of rebellion with the simple words, “Mockingjay lives”. Take a look at the new video, below… ...

When Lionsgate originally announced it would adapt Veronica Roth’s popular young adult novel set in a futuristic dystopian world and featuring a strong female lead character, Divergent naturally drew comparisons to The Hunger Games. After the record-breaking success of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire - but before Divergent was released in theaters – Lionsgate gave the green light to adapt the other two books in Roth’s trilogy: Insurgent and Allegiant. A few months later, the studio announced that the final film would be split into two separate movies.
Although the cast and crew are still shooting principal photography for Insurgent, the producers have already begun securing the main players behind the scenes ...
