Health Care Plan Problems Take Center Stage in Writers Guild-Studios’ Contract Talks

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

The halls of Congress aren’t the only place where a strenuous debate over the fate of health care has taken place this week.

The financial strain on the Writers Guild of America’s health care plan has been a central issue during the past two weeks of master contract negotiations between the guild and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers.

The guild is seeking a significant step-up in AMPTP funding for the plan, which is calculated as a percentage of WGA member earnings. The WGA plan, like SAG-aftra’s and the DGA’s, is administered by a joint committee of guild and management reps, and is known for offering generous coverage with little out-of-pocket expense from members who earn enough annually to qualify for coverage.

Gwendoline Christie Has Entered The Darkest Minds With Jennifer Nelson Yuh

24 March 2017 11:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Just when we thought the ‘dystopian future’ trend of Young Adult fiction adaptations had finally come to an end, along comes The Darkest Minds to drag us back into this well-worn genre. The good news is that, unlike many of these ‘teenage-apocalypse’ efforts, the force is strong with this one. Its ever improving-pedigree now includes a talented female director, a talented female lead, and not one, but two women connected to the Star Wars universe.

The source material in question is The Darkest Minds book series, by Alexandra Bracken. These tales – set in the obligatory dystopian future – focus on a 16 year old girl named Ruby, who finds she has special powers. As she begins to explore them, and attempts to bring them under control, she escapes a prison camp in search of a young leader who is said to be able to control these incredible abilities. Along the way, she »

Gwendoline Christie will play a bounty hunter in ‘The Darkest Minds’

24 March 2017 9:18 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

She’s already starred, albeit briefly, in The Hunger Games franchise, but clearly one Ya (that’s Young Adult for those not in the know) adaptation isn’t enough for Gwendoline Christie. The Game of Thrones and Star Wars star has just been linked to The Darkest Minds.

The film is based on a trilogy of books, Ya series nearly always come in threes it seems, and will be directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson. Nelson is best known for her work on Kung-Fu Panda 2 & 3, with The Darkest Minds being her first live-action feature.

The setting is of course post-apocalyptic America (aren’t they always?) with almost all children wiped out. Basically a disease has torn through the globe, killing around 98% of the young population, the surviving 2% gaining superhuman like powers. These remaining children are existing within internment camps for their own ‘safety’. Christie will play a bounty-hunter enlisted to track down young, »

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Will Not Be Changed In Light Of Carrie Fisher’s Passing

23 March 2017 3:24 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The passing of an actor is always a difficult thing to deal with when it happens prior to the finish of a production. There is no cut-and-dry way to deal with it, and in the past, studios and filmmakers have taken different measures to help hide the fact that their actor was unable to complete reshoots. With the case of Philip Seymour Hoffman in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, some made changes to the script work around the footage they had shot already. In the case of Furious Seven, they utilized CG and Paul Walker’s brothers to shoot the remaining footage they needed for the film.

However, as great as those respective films turned out, neither actor had quite the iconic nature of Carrie Fisher. This was a woman who had been seen as Princess Leia for the better part forty years. This is a role that is not »

‘Beauty and the Beast’ Will Overpower ‘Power Rangers’ and Other Openers

23 March 2017 10:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

How big will Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” be?

Continuing to forge ahead after its record-breaking opening gross last weekend, the live-action remake should outgross three new releases by about 150 percent. It’s unfair to judge any of the new titles against juggernaut “Beauty,” which has already amassed $206 million (unprecedented for pre-May) in its first five days domestic, $428 million worldwide. This weekend “Beauty and the Beast” looks to fall somewhere in the $80-100 million range and should hit a staggering $300 million in its first ten days.

This makes it hard for any newcomers to make much impact.

Lionsgate’s $100 million reboot of “Power Rangers” will easily outpace Sony’s latest outer space adventure “Life” as well as Warner Bros.’ remake of 1970s California Highway Patrol TV hit “Chips.”

Over the past five years, we’ve seen Woody Harrelson get involved in some fun franchises like The Hunger Games and Now You See Me. This year, he’ll go a little darker with a villainous turn in War for the Planet of the Apes, but his biggest franchise role yet is still on the horizon. Back […]

The Hunger Games Cast Isn't Alone: How Co-Stars Go From Inseparable to Distant Friends

23 March 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

When you begin filming a movie, the odds are ever in your favor that you'll develop a special bond with the cast and crew. Such was the case for The Hunger Games cast who not only completed several films together, they traveled the world to support each and every installment. Whether posing on the red carpet or attending award shows together, there was chemistry and a bond between Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson and more cast members that could not be denied. But as the fifth anniversary of The Hunger Games hits today, many familiar faces from the film aren't as close anymore. No, there wasn't a big feud or drama behind the scenes. Instead, it appears to be a »

Power Rangers: Six-Movie Arc Already In The Works?

22 March 2017 2:26 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

If you’re making a big budget blockbuster these days, chances are you aren’t just looking at one film. You’re looking at a series of films. Sure, Hollywood has always been about sequelizing. You can look back in recent decades and see the myriad of sequels that have spawned from amazing original films. With very few exceptions, however, they weren’t planned from the ground-up as franchises. It was more of a “let’s see how this does, and then maybe” kind of thing. It’s a reason why oftentimes sequels were inferior to their predecessors: the character arcs were already over, and there was nowhere else for them to go.

Nowadays, with the creation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it seems as though every studio is looking for the next big franchise to lean on for the foreseeable future. For the longest time for Lionsgate, that franchise was The Hunger Games. »

[SXSW Review] Bloody and Occasionally Shocking ‘This is Your Death’ is Mostly Oversanitized Satire

In our modern society, the obsession with reality TV is still a prevalent as ever, with millions of Americans regularly tuning in to Bravo, E!, TLC, and the like to peek into the lives of strangers. This fixation is not necessarily new, however, and films like Network, Man Bites Dog, The Running Man, and even The Hunger Games have long criticized and deconstructed […] »

Indie Movie Guide: Woody Harrelson Shines in 'Wilson'

22 March 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

Woody Harrelson is one of those actors who seems equally comfortable in weird, quirky roles (Seven Psychopaths) as he is in bigger, more mainstream fare (The Hunger Games). So we're excited to see him back playing an oddball in Wilson, the lonely, misanthropic title character who has some really annoying traits. Laura Dern costars as his estranged wife, with whom he reunites after learning they have a teenage daughter, and they embark on a journey to find her. Wilson is in select theaters...

Flex 'Em, Ladies! Actresses Who Packed on Muscles for Their Movies

22 March 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

When it comes to getting silver screen ready, it's not always about dieting.  In fact, for a handful of Hollywood's most successful female action stars, fitting the part meant bulking up—in the kitchen and at the gym.  Whether it was a boxing Hilary Swank in Million Dollar Baby or one-handed push-ups from Demi Moore's lieutenant-in-training for G.I. Jane, actresses have proven flexing their muscles can be beneficial on the big screen.  For Swank, getting in the ring meant her second Oscar. Eight years later, Jennifer Lawrence blazed onto the scene yielding a bow and arrow as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, a film that remained number one at the »

21 March 2017 8:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Although dressing up in costume for fan conventions has been around for more than 70 years, the general public doesn’t really understand the fan-favorite practice. “Cosplay Melee” aims to change that.

Syfy’s reality competition show, premiering Tuesday, March 21, aims to demystify cosplay, a portmanteau word comprised of “costume” and “play.” Sort of a “Project Runway” for geeks, the series shows the competitors in action, creating their costumes from scratch within a specified time limit.

‘Ape’ Brings Mental Illness Nightmares to Life

Short of the DayA harrowing and compelling short starring and directed by Josh Hutcherson

The most terrifying facet of extreme schizophrenia, I think, is the idea that the line between reality and delusion can at times not exist, that even though your senses might tell you something’s wrong or off, your mind won’t translate it into meaning. You learn you can’t trust yourself, basically, and that, to me, is the most frightening thing I can think of. We each are, at the end of every day, our only arbiters of the truth, and to learn you’re incapable of always telling or always accepting that truth from yourself must be its own kind of private hell.

Now, of course, I am describing an extreme sort of the disease, not everyone who suffers from schizophrenia suffers to that degree as there are in fact several medications that can help those afflicted lead normal lives. That »

‘Beauty and the Beast’: 5 Reasons the Disney Fantasy Scored at the Box Office

19 March 2017 1:58 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” scored with audiences, racking up a massive $170 million domestically to become the biggest March debut ever and the seventh-best opening in history. The fairy tale remake added an additional $180 million to its haul from international territories, raking in big bucks in major markets like China and the United Kingdom.

Once again, Disney has successfully updated a “tale as old as time” for a new generation of moviegoers while retaining the sense of wonder and magic that made the 1991 animated version of “Beauty and the Beast” a cultural touchstone for an older audience. It continues the studio’s successful collection of live-action remakes of cartoon favorites like “The Jungle Book” and “Cinderella” and helps propel star Emma Watson to the top of the A-list. Here are five reasons “Beauty and the Beast” smashed records.
