Jennifer Lawrence Rumoured To Be In Talks for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight

4 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The cast of Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight is already extremely impressive, but if the rumours about another name being added are true, it’s about to get even better and arguably a lot more intriguing!

American Hustle and The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence is said to be in talks to join the cast of the movie. There’s no word on what role she would play, and as there’s apparently only one female member of the “Hateful Eight” (Daisy Domergue, a.k.a. The Prisoner”), that could be who she’s set to star as.

However, it’s mentioned that Amber Tamblyn read for that role during a recent live reading of the screenplay, so unless Tarantino is planning on recasting, that could take Jennifer Lawrence out of the running. Another key female role – Six Horse Judy – was read by Zoe Bell, but that’s said »

Fans who plan on seeing Sin City: A Dame to Kill For this weekend will be the first to check out the teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight. Following the trailer description from yesterday, Collider is reporting that The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence is in negotiations for a role in the Western.

When the director staged a live reading of his screenplay back in April, there were only two female roles, Daisy Domergue and Six-Horse Judy, which were read by Amber Tamblyn and Zoe Bell.

We reported last month that the director plans on using the entire cast from is live reading, including Bruce Dern (The Confederate), Samuel L. Jackson (The Bounty Hunter), Kurt Russell (The Hangman), Amber Tamblyn (The Prisoner), Walton Goggins (The Sheriff), Michael Madsen (The Cow Puncher) and Tim Roth (The Little Man) and James Remar.

‘Young Ones’ Trailer: Beware the Waterless Future

5 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

You can tell a lot about the psychological undercurrents of a society by examining the state of its speculative fiction. For example, the science fiction and horror movies of the 1950s reveal a deep anxiety about nuclear power and the sudden surge of technological process. Though those fears might have been embodied by giant radioactive ants, they still resonated with contemporary audiences on a bone-deep level.

Emblematic of this phenomenon is Young Ones, an upcoming sci-fi Western about a day-after-tomorrow future ravaged by drought. Indeed, Young Ones taps into modern nervousness about economic hardship, environmental degradation, social collapse, and the inability of technology to alleviate any of these problems. It joins a host of cultural properties (The Rover, The Hunger Games, and Mad Max: Fury Road, among many others) that reflect a generalized anxiety that the future ...

Ever dreamed of participating in a real world, yet simulated version of “The Hunger Games”?

‘If I Stay’ Leads Weekend Box Office Pre-Sales

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

Broken hearts are more powerful than big lugs.

The weepy “If I Stay” is leading weekend pre-sales, trouncing retro-noir “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” and the football drama “When the Game Stands Tall,” according to Fandango.

If I Stay” is currently responsible for 40% of weekend ticket sales on the site, while “When the Games Stands Tall” is hovering at 13% of purchases. The “Sin City” sequel is gunning for 10% of sales. Two holdovers, “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” are both responsible for 6% of tickets moved.

It looks like a lackluster box office weekend, but “If I Stay” is expected to top the charts with between $18 million to $20 million in receipts. “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” should pull in $15 million and “When The Games Stands Tall” could make $10 million.

Movietickets.com, another online ticket seller, only reports daily numbers, but “If I Stay” is the big winner there too. »

‘The Giver’ and the Politics of Millennials

10 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

With our federal government currently suffering record levels of disapproval, political pundits are starting to look to the future. Millenials are quickly aging into a vital role in our national culture, but their politics are hard to parse. Many pundits have assumed them to be liberal, based on the instrumental role they played in Obama’s ascendance in 2008, but recent evidence suggests the picture is not so clear. Last month, an article at The Atlantic commented smugly on this phenomenon, arguing that the politics of Millennials don’t make any sense. “Millennials don’t know what they’re talking about when it comes to economics,” the author wrote. “Forty-two percent…think socialism is preferable to capitalism, but only 16 percent…could accurately define socialism in the survey.”  But if politics is downstream of culture, maybe the movies, which count young Americans as their most prized demographic, can tell us more about the ascending generation’s complicated political values »

‘Maze Runner’ Clips & Featurette With Author James Dashner

14 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

It’s not fun being a teenager in the new wave of Hollywood sci-fi movies geared towards young adults. If they’re not being forced into the gladiatorial combat of The Hunger Games or the strict social segregation of Divergent, they’re being rounded up and forced to run through a giant maze filled with deadly monsters. The latter is the premise of Wes Ball’s upcoming mystery thriller The Maze Runner, in which confused amnesiac Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) wakes up in a community of boys who are dedicated to finding a way through the enormous shifting maze that keeps them trapped in the Glade.

The Maze Runner is based on the novel of the same name by James Dashner, which has so far been followed by two sequels and a prequel. In case it’s not immediately obvious, Twentieth ...

The Divergent Series May Get a Fifth Film

20 August 2014 2:59 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Five months after its release, Divergent remains one of the year’s biggest hits. Although it did not reach the heights of any Hunger Games or Twilight titles, it made a strong $151 million in North America and another $125 million overseas. Those are solid, if not spectacular results, and with the books continuing to sell well, could a fifth title in the Divergent series be on the way? If Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. CEO Jon Feltheimer has any say, we just might get one.

Feltheimer credits “skyrocketing book sales, a stellar home entertainment launch and stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James and Ansel Elgort generating ever-increasing online buzz” as indicators that another film in the series could head into production. The fifth film would be based on the short stories from Veronica Roth’s series spin-off Four, told from the perspective of Theo James’ character. Many of these tales are prequels to »

Box Office: Chloe Moretz Tearjerker ‘If I Stay’ to Overshadow ‘Sin City 2′

20 August 2014 1:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Teen girls are notoriously fickle, particularly when it comes to movies.

For every “Twilight” or “The Hunger Games,” there’s a film such as “Mortal Instruments,” a hot literary property that lost its sizzle in the transition from page to screen.

If I Stay” is the latest attempt to capture this coveted demographic, and while the low-budget weepy won’t hit the lofty numbers of “The Fault in Our Stars,” it’s shaping up to sell a lot of tickets along with Kleenex.

“It looks like it could be a breakout based on the reactions on Facebook and Twitter,” said Phil Contrino, vice president and chief analyst of BoxOffice.com. “It seems to be connecting with the same crowds that lined up for ‘Fault in Our Stars.’ This month has had a lot of male-skewing action pictures, so the timing is good.”

'If I Stay' Stars and Author Defend Movie as More Than Another Ya Tale

20 August 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

On its surface, this Friday's If I Stay seems like a familiar film. It's a big-screen adaptation of a beloved, best-selling young adult novel about teenagers in love amid traumatic circumstances. Indeed, the movie is just the latest in a long line of Ya adaptations, coming on the heels of The Giver, The Fault in Our Stars, Divergent and The Hunger Games, many of which were released in the past 12 months.
