Josh Hutcherson to revamp role of Spiderman?

8 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Josh Hutcherson has said he would like to take on the role of Spiderman in the Marvel and Sony reboot.

The Hunger Games actor previously auditioned for the role before Andrew Garfield won it in Marc Webb's time at the helm.

Speaking to Yahoo Movies he said: "Yeah, of course I'd think about doing it: It's 'Spider-Man', that'd be really cool. There's not been any conversations about that, but who knows what would happen?"

Hutcherson had auditioned for the role unsuccessfully but footage has emerged of his meeting with casting agents.

Do we need another Spiderman?

Now Marvel joins Spiderman who should play the webslinger?

If Peter Parker is dropped and filmmakers choose to go down the Miles Morales route, Donald Glover could be in the frame.

But if Parker's tale is rebooted for a third time, names like Hutcherson, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort and Dylan O'Brien could be seen topping a film poster. »

The Hunger Games actress is filming the movie Joy with director David O. Russell, and TMZ reported that there was a "loud argument" on the Boston set between them.

Lawrence calls it all a "terrible rumor" in her latest Facebook post.  She wrote, "David O. Russell is one of my closest friends and we have an amazing collaborative working relationship. I adore this man and he does not deserve this tabloid malarkey."

Box Office: Will Smith’s ‘Focus’ Sets Sights on $20 Million Opening

13 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A new romance is dominating the bigscreen.

Will Smith’s “Focus” has dethroned “Fifty Shades of Grey” as the No. 1 film in the country. The crime drama opened to $6.5 million on Friday in the U.S. and has set its sights on $20 million this weekend. Tracking had pegged a debut in the $21 million to $23 million range.

Although the respectable launch doesn’t prove that Smith is still one of the Hollywood’s biggest stars, the Warner Bros. film is nowhere near the disaster that the sci-fi tentpole “After Earth” wrought for Sony. “Focus” also carries a much smaller, $50 million pricetag — a third the size of “After Earth’s” budget.

Margot Robbie, who made her debut in Leonardo DiCaprio’s “Wolf of Wall Street,” co-stars as a young con artist in the romantic caper directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa. Smith plays a veteran conman who takes Robbie under his wing, »

It’s also kicked off a series of new character posters which so far includes Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) [see here], The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo »

Box Office: Will Smith’s ‘Focus’ Heading for $23 Million Opening Weekend, ‘Fifty Shades’ Slipping

27 February 2015 2:10 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Will Smith’s “Focus” is ending the box office dominance of of “Fifty Shades of Grey,” with a moderate opening in the $21 million to $23 million range expected at 3,323 locations this weekend.

While hardly dazzling, “Focus” won’t be a disaster for Warner Bros., unlike Smith’s 2013 sci-fi pic “After Earth” was for Sony. “Focus” — a combination of romantic comedy and heist caper — carries a $50 million pricetag, or about a third that of “After Earth.”

Early estimates placed “Focus” in line with expectations of a respectable launch, reinforced with a $900,000 opening on Thursday night. Margot Robbie, who debuted in “Wolf of Wall Street,” co -stars as a young con artist.

After stunning audiences with a record-setting opening weekend and easily winning its second session, “Fifty Shades” is fading fast and heading for about $10 million this weekend at the U.S. box office.

“Fifty Shades” tumbled 74% last weekend to $22.3 million, so another steep decline is coming. »

Mining value from an Oscar win

27 February 2015 1:32 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Eddie Redmayne’s Oscar win has thrown a new potential star into the ring as players in the independent space hustle to package films for Cannes and beyond.

Sales agents have long bemoaned the small pool of marketable talent that can galvanise pre-sales and represent value around the world.

The British actor’s Oscar coronation last Sunday for his lead role in The Theory Of Everything offers an opportunity to broaden the range of available star power in non-studio projects.

Indeed Redmayne and Oscar nominee and Birdman star Michael Keaton were on almost every talent list scrutinised by sales agents in the run-up to the Efm in Berlin.

Now every sales agent in the business will be approaching Redmayne’s representatives to see if he would be suited to whichever projects they may be sizing up.

Sales agents have long bemoaned the small pool of marketable talent that can galvanise pre-sales and represent value around the world.

27 February 2015 12:43 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Another week in television has gone by, and it has brought with it a great deal of exciting news about some of television’s most popular shows, including Arrow, American Horror Story, and Empire. Unfortunately, however, this week ends on quite the sad note, as Leonard Nimoy, best known for being Star Trek‘s Spock, passed away earlier today after a battle with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. In addition to his role as Spock, Nimoy’s other TV credits included Fringe and Mission Impossible, and he will, without a doubt, be missed. So, on a much more somber note than usual, let’s dive into this week’s biggest headlines. – The Dancing With the Stars Season 20 cast was announced this week, and it includes the likes of Patti Labelle, Michael Sam, and The Hunger GamesWillow Shields. Additionally, Derek Hough, who was initially believed to be not be returning for »

American Sniper Is About To Topple An Incredible Record

27 February 2015 8:53 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Despite the bevy of headline-making news item, American Sniper continues to display an impressive fortitude on the box-office battlefield. The film is still sitting comfortably despite being in business for over two-months and now seems set to nab a rather huge, yet somewhat head-scratching record. From the looks of things, Sniper is well on track to dethrone The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 as the top grossing domestic film of 2014. Yes, the 2014 domestic moviegoing crown will soon replace Katniss Everdeen.s revolution-inspiring three-finger salute with a more simple in-unison shout of "Oorah!" As observed in a report from Deadline, American Sniper, estimated at $322.59 million during the mid-week, is currently hot on the heels of displacing the $336.45 million made from the November 21-premiering Mockingjay. With that displacement, Sniper would also nab itself the #30 spot currently held by Mockingjay in the all-time domestic gross charts, nestled just below the $336.53 million from 2007.s Spider-Man 3, »

Would Hunger Games Star Josh Hutcherson Be Up For Playing Marvel's Spider-man?

27 February 2015 6:30 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It's been almost three weeks since news broke that Spider-Man will finally be swinging into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (before spinning off into a standalone 2017 movie), and fans are still eager to know more about Sony and Marvel's plans; especially which "young" actor will be playing the Web-Slinger. Well, before being cast in The Hunger Games, for which he's now best known, Josh Hutcherson was among several actors in the mix for Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man reboot. Though that coveted role ultimately went to Andrew Garfield then, would Hutcherson still be game for playing Spidey now? "Yeah, of course I'd think about doing it," Hucherson told Yahoo! last week. "It's Spider-Man, that'd be really cool. There's not been any conversations about that, but who knows what would happen." While previously in contention, the 22-year-old had admitted that even though he wasn't much of a comic book reader, he »

The Hunger Games’ Josh Hutcherson interested in playing Spider-Man

27 February 2015 5:41 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since the announcement of Marvel and Sony reaching a deal so Spider-Man can feature in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there has been a fair amount of speculation on who could play the friendly neighbourhood wall crawler. If reports are to be believed, Sony and Marvel are looking at Logan Lerman (Fury) and Dylan O’Brien (The Maze Runner) as the front runners.

Back before Andrew Garfield was cast as Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, one man who did audition for the role was Josh Hutherson (The Hunger Games). Now that the role is available again, would be interested in putting on the suit?

“Yeah, of course I’d think about doing it: It’s Spider-Man, that’d be really cool,” Hutcherson told Yahoo! Movies. “There’s not been any conversations about that, but who knows what would happen?”

How ‘The Duff’ Used Social Media, YouTube Stars to Rally Teen Girls

26 February 2015 3:16 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Duff,” a low-budget high school comedy from CBS Films and Lionsgate, shows that Twitter, YouTube and other social-media platforms can be deployed to get 21st century teenagers interested in something as comparatively old fashioned as a movie.

The film opened to $10.8 million, a respectable number for a production that cost $8.5 million to make and lacks any big-name actors. The relative success of the picture is a testament to cost-efficient outreach to a group of female moviegoers who like communicating in 140 characters and are often ignored by mainstream movie studios — girls between the ages of 11 and 18. It’s the same demographic that helped turn “The Fault in Our Stars” and “Twilight” into major hits and one that some Hollywood players think could become a reliable block of ticket buyers.

“I know that this group goes to the movies as a social function,” said Terry Press, president of CBS Films. “They »

There are two big questions facing the Marvel Cinematic Universe at this moment in time: Who will play Spider-Man? And...Will he be white? We may get those answers next week as Robert Downey Jr. teased an impending announcement from Marvel that promises to be epic in nature. While we wait for next Thursday to roll around, we do have some interesting comments from two actors currently rumored to be up for the role. The first is The Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson, who was actually eyed to play the character way back in 2011, before Andrew Garfield got cast as Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man. The second is Donald Glover, whom fans rallied around as he campaigned for the role of Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man, too.

‘Huntsman’ Screenwriter Will Pen The ‘Tomb Raider’ Reboot; Warner Bros. Joins MGM On Project

25 February 2015 1:44 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s interesting to see the studio's zeal to get the “Tomb Raider” series back off the ground given that it was never very good, never well received, nor the massive success it might have been (though it did do well). The combined domestic total by the franchise back in 2003 was $196 million — “The Hunger Games” more than doubled that figure at home with 'Catching Fire.' And while “Tomb Raider” lost its momentum fast — the sequel, ‘The Cradle of Life,’ was a big disappointment that only grossed $156 million worldwide and less than $70 million at home, studios have been clamoring for more ever since. Why? Because a global total of $430 million for both films was pretty good and those with rose-tinted glasses perhaps remember things with a bit more nostalgia. And maybe “The Hunger Games” analogy isn’t a bad one. While “Tomb Raider” isn’t in the young-adult science fiction »

Box Office: ‘Focus’ Tries to Prove Will Smith Is Still One of Hollywood’s Biggest Stars

25 February 2015 1:19 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Will Smith will try to prove he’s still one of the brightest lights in the entertainment industry this weekend when “Focus,” his heist romance with Margot Robbie, hits theaters.

Early tracking suggests that reports of the “Men in Black’s” star’s demise as a bankable leading man appear to be premature. The Warner Bros.  film should open to $21 million when it debuts in 3,323 locations, capturing the top spot in what is shaping up to be an otherwise lackluster week at the box office.

Focus” cost $50.1 million to produce and is leaning heavily on Smith’s charisma in its television spots and posters. At 46, the actor is definitely at a career crossroads, but his recent rap as a faltering box office draw is unearned.

Yes, “After Earth” bombed with $60.5 million domestic on a $130 million budget, but it did do $183.3 million overseas, where Smith remains popular. Take that out of »

While the search is on for a new actor to replace Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man when the web-slinger makes his groundbreaking cross-studio debut in Marvel.s Captain America: Civil War, some of the rumored candidates from the previous search five years earlier are starting to come back into the conversation. Among the most noteworthy of them is Josh Hutcherson. Now a certified star in The Hunger Games series, the previously short-listed wall-crawling candidate has been fielding questions about the possibility of taking the coveted role this time around . but it seems that he has not yet heard anything about the opportunity. In an interview with Yahoo, the topic of Hutcherson potentially donning the Spider-Man costume was brought up, and while the idea of bringing a prospective "Peeta Parker" to life on the big screen seems like something he.d love to do, it.s not something he has yet been »
