High Profile Films Pulled From Netflix

7 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

If there are any films of recent years you haven't gotten around to on your Netflix queue, you've got about a month left to watch them before they're gone.

Netflix has announced that they will not be renewing their deal with Epix with titles in that deal - namely any films from Lionsgate, MGM and Paramount- set to expire at the end of September.

Instead, Epix will be bringing those titles to Hulu from October 1st with film like "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1," "Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation," "Interstellar," "Selma," "Top Five" and "The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water" coming to the service in the next few months.

It also means high profile films like the "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire", "Star Trek: Into Darkness," "Wolf of Wall Street," "World War Z" and "Transformers: Age of Extinction" will no longer be available on Netflix from October 1st. »

Terminator Genisys crosses $400 million worldwide

13 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may have stumbled at the North American box office with just $89.5 million, but Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions’ Terminator Genisys has pushed its worldwide gross to $409.5 million, topping the international box office for the second weekend in a row thanks to its continued strong performance in China.

This weekend saw Genisys adding a further $23.6 million from 25 markets, with $23.4 million of that coming from China, where it has so far earned $82.8 million since it debuted last Sunday and scored the fourth-biggest ever opening day for a Hollywood movie.

Before its opening in China, Genisys had been perceived as a box office flop, but is now closing in on Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines’ $433.4 million gross, which would place it second behind Terminator 2: Judgment Day ($519.8 million) in terms of the franchise’s biggest earners.

Oh, and it’s also the tenth-biggest movie of 2015. So, how long until we get confirmation on a sequel? »

13 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

If you've been meaning to watch The Hunger Games on Netflix, you better do it now while you still have the chance. In a blog post Sunday, Netflix's Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos stated that Netflix isn't renewing its license with Epix, which means they'll be losing such popular films as Rocky, The Hunger Games, Transformers, etc. But don't worry, Sarandos assured readers: You'll soon be getting Adam Sandler's Ridiculous Six, which will surely make up for it. »

'Borderlands' Is The Next Video Game to Get a Movie Adaptation

28 August 2015 5:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Now that The Hunger Games is a few months away from ending, Lionsgate will soon find themselves in need of another big franchsie that already has a built in fanbase. They're hoping they've already got that with their in-development Power Rangers movie, but now they're hedging their franchise bets by going for the gamer market, as Variety is reporting the studio has struck a deal for the Borderlands franchise. Avi and Ari Arad, who produced all of the Spider-Man movies, are overseeing the project for the studio. They don't have any directors or writers officially attached at this point, but now that the news is out there they'll no doubt be getting plenty of calls from some top Hollywood talent. If done right - and there's a big If there - this could be a...

Lionsgate is Working on a Borderlands Movie

28 August 2015 9:35 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Lionsgate (company behind The Hunger Games) has announced that they are making a live action adaptation of Borderlands.

The heads of Lionsgate released a statement stating they are going to make a feature film based off the game Borderlands. The note that the adventure is due to them expanding their interest in adapting established franchises, and with over 25 million copies sold you can bet Borderlands has done just that.

As for other details we will have to wait as it is too soon. The studio does promise to "stay true to the series," but we have no casting information or writers/directors lined up just yet.

"The Borderlands games don't pull any punches, and we'll make the movie with the same in-your-face attitude that has made the series a blockbuster mega-franchise," Lionsgate noted. 

Avid Arad and his son will be producing the film.

"This alliance is ideally positioned to create a bold, »

Lionsgate To Create “No-Holds-Barred” Borderlands Film

28 August 2015 9:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Of all the video game franchises that are yet to flirt with the silver screen, you’d be hard-pressed to find one more ripe for the picking than Gearbox Software’s Borderlands series. Blending genres with ease, the studio’s open-world, sci-fi shooter is brimming with personality and delightfully insane characters (Claptrap!), and it appears Lionsgate has taken notice of the idiosyncratic franchise with plans to turn the 2K-owned property into a feature film.

Variety has the skinny on the big-screen adaptation which is, as you’d imagine, in the very early stages of development. That doesn’t mean the studio hasn’t been pitching around early ideas for a Borderlands film, and going off of Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger’s – Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-Chairs – joint statement, the company is at least aiming to be faithful to the over-the-top nature of Gearbox’s shooter.

You can add 6-foot-8, 320-lb. Matthew Willig to Phil Coulson’s sizeable list of Season 3 woes.

The veteran NFL offensive tackle has been cast on ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the role of Lash, an Inhuman who, executive producer Jeff Bell tells TVLine, “has a fairly strong opinion about what should happen to Inhumans,” who in the wake of the Season 2 finale (thanks, fish oil supplements!) are “popping up all over the world.”

Star Wars: The Force Awakens To Occupy IMAX Screens For A Month

26 August 2015 11:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Excitement for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is building – and fast. With little under four months to go until the release of J.J. Abrams’ sci-fi sequel, Disney is beginning to map out release plans in order to ensure that the film enjoys the biggest launch possible. One such strategy will involve its run in IMAX theaters. Despite only containing one single sequence in the big-screen format, the House of Mouse has today confirmed that The Force Awakens will be broadcast in IMAX theaters for an entire month.

Sure, it’s not unprecedented – Warner Bros. secured a similar deal for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy – but it is still remarkable. According to The Hollywood Reporter, such a tactic will mean that The Force Awakens will be screened in 375 to 400 IMAX screens across the States and a further 400 more internationally, benefitting from the premium ticket prices in the process.

The Great British Bake Off contestants are completely and utterly petrified: 12 faces of pure fear

26 August 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

We're a bit worried about the contestants on The Great British Bake Off. Sue Perkins might have told Dorret in episode one that it's only a cake, but we're not quite so convinced.

Nadiya's facial expressions are the best thing about The Great British Bake Off

In fact, based on the below pictures, we're starting to question whether Bake Off is really just a gentle BBC Two reality show. Because these contestants seem so terrified that surely only something truly awful awaits them outside the safety of the tent. We're not sure what that might be but it's starting to look more and more like The Hunger Games as the weeks go on (despite all the puddings lying about).

Tonight, the bakers face all manner of tricky desserts and will have to master them to ensure their survival - in other words, we're expecting lots more examples of shaky hands and shaky nerves. »

'Star Wars 7' Is Taking Over All IMAX Theaters for a Month

26 August 2015 10:40 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the hype surrounding Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it wouldn't surprise anyone if it ended up becoming the highest-grossing movie of 2015, most likely breaking a few box office records along the way. We've known for quite some time that this highly-anticipated sci-fi adventure will be released in IMAX theaters, but today we have a new report from The Hollywood Reporter, which reveals the movie will essentially dominate IMAX theaters for an entire month. Director J.J. Abrams' sequel will be shown in every IMAX domestic theater, and most of its international theaters, where it will be the only movie to screen during a four-week run.

IMAX struck a similar deal with Warner Bros. for The Hobbit trilogy, where the company reserved all of their screens for this one movie, but that deal was brokered four years ago, and they haven't made one since, until now. The movie will »

Why Mr. Robot is the summer’s most (and least) original new series

26 August 2015 9:16 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In the opening minutes of the pilot for USA’s Mr. Robot, superhacker Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek) meets with the shifty proprietor of a chain of coffeeshops. Over the course of their conversation, Elliot reveals the flaws in his cybersecurity—flaws that enabled Elliot to uncover this fellow’s immense cache of child pornography. The topic shifts: Who is Elliot? What does he want? Money? Before long, though, Elliot heads out and the cops storm in to mete out justice. That, it would seem, will be the blueprint for Mr. Robot: the story of yet another maladjusted genius with One Weird Trick for solving crimes while disregarding the rules, man. He’ll track down hidden bad guys, overcoming his obvious social awkwardness and seemingly timid nature, and expose them to the world with the help of cutting-edge, buzzword-heavy technological innovation. After all, this is USA, the home of Burn Notice, »

Jennifer Lawrence And Amy Schumer Co-Writing A Script

26 August 2015 9:13 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

That escalated quickly. Mere months after meeting and becoming Bffs, Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence are working together on a script that they’re aiming to star in. Given that it’s still at an early stage, Lawrence – ostensibly talking to The New York Times about The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 – was reticent to reveal too much. But she did say that, “we play sisters. “We’re almost done writing. It just flowed out of us. We’ve got about 100 pages right now.” Lawrence says she got in contact with Schumer after seeing Trainwreck, and the two became fast friends, with Lawrence joining the comedian, actress and writer on holiday with her crowd. That has now become a professional connection. “Amy and I were creatively made for each other. We have different flavours,” she says. “It’s been the most fun experience of my life.
