Anthony and Joe Russo’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” lead this year’s 41st Annual Saturn Awards nominations with 11 and 10, respectively, the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films announced on Tuesday.

Marvel’s summer box office smash “Guardians of the Galaxy” followed close behind with nine nominations. “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” followed with eight, and “Edge of Tomorrow” and “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” grabbed seven apiece.

Two of last year’s big television winners, “The Walking Dead” and “Hannibal,” lead the 2015 smallscreen noms with seven and six, respectively. “Continuum,” which airs on the Syfy channel and averages less than 1 million viewers, is the next most nominated show with four.

'Independence Day 2' Gets Jeff Goldblum & Liam Hemsworth

3 March 2015 5:46 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Roland Emmerich revealed on his personal Facebook page today that Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum and Jessie Usher have signed on for roles in Independence Day 2. Naturally, Jeff Goldblum will be reprising his role as David Levinson from the original 1996 blockbuster Independence Day, but the filmmaker would not say who the other actors are playing. However, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Jessie Usher will play the son of Will Smith's Captain Stephen Hiller from the original movie in a central role.

It's worth noting that, in the original Independence Day, Stephen Hiller's girlfriend Jasmine Dubrow (Vivica A. Fox) had a young son named Dylan (Ross Bagley), although Stephen was not the father. It's possible that Jessie Usher may be playing Dylan, 20 years later, since it wasn't known if Hiller had children or not. As for Liam Hemsworth, the actor was rumored to be up for the lead role back in January, »

Some Set Photos of Chiwetel Ejiofor, Nicole Kidman & Julia Roberts in 'Secret in Their Eyes' Remake

3 March 2015 3:29 PM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

It's a film that's on my Oscar 2016 predictions list, as Chiwetel Ejiofor could see another Best Actor nomination for his performance in the American remake of the Argentine crime thriller, "The Secret in Their Eyes."  It was a role that Denzel Washington was reportedly offered initially, but it eventually went to Ejiofor, who is surrounded by actresses also lauded for their past work - Nicole Kidman (nominated for Oscar thrice, won once) and Julia Roberts (nominated 4 times, also won once).

See How the Weapons in 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay' Were Made (Exclusive)

3 March 2015 3:05 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I is available now on Digital HD (iTunes, Amazon, etc), but if you wait until March 6, 2015, you can grab one of the best blockbusters of 2014 on Blu-ray and DVD. Both digital and physical versions come packed with a bunch of goodies (find the full list below), but there's one little extra bit that you won't find on either but can find exclusively right here. It's our pleasure to bring you this behind-the-scenes look at the design process that went in to making the badass weaponry that Katniss and her crew use in the movie while trying to fight for the heart of Panem. And you may just think "Well anyone can make a weapon that looks cool," but you'd be A) incredibly wrong, and B) ignoring the thought process that...

The Hunger Games 3 Honest Trailer Points Out All The Little Problems With The Film

3 March 2015 1:57 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Are you the world's biggest fan of The Hunger Games franchise and can't stand it when people criticize the films in the series? Well, you may want to turn away now, as the most recent title, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 is about to be seriously hated on in this video: This video is the latest installment from Honest Trailers, and you'll notice while watching it that all of their complaints really stem from one central issue: the fact that the film is an adaptation of only half of a book. We'll be seeing the second half of the story and the finale of the franchise play out later this year, but these guys really didn't love the fact that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 didn't really operate as its own story. So what are the consequences of trying to craft a movie from half a plot? »

Tv and Film: Merging Mediums

3 March 2015 10:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

True Detective and The Hunger Games are the same thing. This claim may seem bold, and of course it is in large part reductive and untrue.  When looking at the way the two stories function, however, it becomes easier to see the common ground that exists between them. True Detective is essentially an episodic movie. It tells one story over eight hours, and stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, two bona fide movie stars. The Hunger Games is telling a narrative of roughly the same length, and has a cast that includes House of Cards’ Mahershala Ali and Game of ThronesNatalie Dormer. So, what exactly is the difference?

The Hunger Games series is telling us a single narrative, truly, and its latest installment, Mockingjay—Part 1, told what is really half of a complete story. What it is, in its simplest form, is an episode. While the prior two installments »

Career Watch: For Jennifer Lawrence, If It Ain't Broke, Don't Fix It

3 March 2015 8:10 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

With "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part II" slated for Nov. 20 release, the end of Jennifer Lawrence's blockbuster franchise is near. Indeed, it's been an unmatched breakout run for the actress: since 2011, Lawrence has racked up three Academy Award nominations ("Winter's Bone," "Silver Linings Playbook," for which she won Best Actress, and "American Hustle") and starred in a $1 billion-plus quadrilogy. How do you follow that up? For Lawrence, the answer seems to be, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Her forthcoming projects reflect the same deft balance of box office spectacles—including a reprise of her role as Mystique in 2016's "X-Men: Apocalypse," directed by Bryan Singer—and mid-budget prestige pictures from proven directors, including David O. Russell and now Steven Spielberg. (Due credit to "Winter's Bone" director Debra Granik for launching Lawrence's career, not to mention providing her finest role to »

The blockbuster's in decline – here's how to save it

3 March 2015 8:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

More than 25 superhero movies in the next four years could spell troubled times for the Us box office. How can the studios avoid fatiguing film-goers?

With every new Marvel announcement (the latest of which is due on 5 March), a combination of excitement and resignation hits. While the Disney-owned studio has a habit of producing superhero films that fly a little higher than the rest, there are only so many costumed crimefighters we can bear to see on the big screen.

Do we really need 11 Marvel films in the next four years, which, added to the other superhero offerings on the horizon, makes more than 25 in total?

24 Things We Learned from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 Commentary

2 March 2015 8:55 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is the highest grossing film of 2014 (domestically), but as the third entry in an immensely popular four-film series that success was never really in doubt. We still have eight months to wait for the final movie, but Part 1 hits Blu-ray/DVD this week complete with a making-of documentary, featurettes, deleted scenes and more. Also included on the disc is a feature commentary by director Francis Lawrence and one of the producers. Sure he’s not the flashiest Lawrence they could have wrangled for the track, but he was handed the keys to a massive franchise so he probably knows what he’s talking about. Keep reading to see what I heard on the commentary track for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.

With the imminent arrival of the final chapter in Katniss Everdeen’s saga this coming November, Lionsgate is gearing up for the home release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1, which is slated to hit Blu-Ray and DVD on March 6 here in North America.

The first installment in the franchise’s two-part finale was received relatively well late last year, and its somewhat anticlimactic conclusion only has us more excited to see how the rebellion pans out as the fight heads toward the Capitol.

And so, to celebrate the release of Mockingjay — Part 1 on Blu-Ray, We Got This Covered has one very special poster to give away. Signed by Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Francis Lawrence, Elizabeth Banks, and Donald Sutherland, you can check out a picture of the one-sheet in question down below.

Box Office Weekend: Focus In the Lead, But Not Very Energetic

2 March 2015 8:29 AM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

It is a slow week for new releases. After the smash opening weekend of Fifty Shades of Grey, the box office took a nose dive as Will Smith and his con artist comedy/drama Focus opened in first place with a fairly tepid estimated $19.1 million, a rough start to the $50 million budgeted film. In second, Kingsman: The Secret Service finds it has settled comfortably in second place for the third week in a row, earning an estimated $11.8 million. Counting its worldwide take, it has managed to pull itself into decent financial footing, while it is no match for The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, whose estimated $11.2 million puts it at nearly double its costs in domestic earnings alone, and Fifty Shades of Grey, whose worldwide $486.2 million (and estimated $10.9 million weekend) practically guarantees the rest of the franchise will follow, regardless of critical reception.
