It's one week into Big Brother and the housemates have already started talking about becoming cannibals.
The whole group discussed how hungry they were yesterday, leading Harriet Jackson to say: "We'll have to start eating each other."
Jack McDermott - whom Sarah Greenwood and Kieran McLeod thought was finding the lack of food very difficult - seemed to be on board with the proposal, saying: "I'm not going to lie... I might turn to cannibalism."
Luckily for the housemates, they had a chance to win some food - and apparently save themselves - with this week's shopping task, although Nick Henderson admitted that he gives up on things "so easily".
"You won't if you're starving, mate," Harriet replied. "You've got to fight for your life. You've got to think this is The Hunger Games."
Until they received more food, the group discussed how to eke out their rations, with Kieran »

The Maze Runner was something of a breath of fresh air when it comes to Ya novels that have been adapted for the big screen. Darker and a lot more violent than even The Hunger Games, and featuring an ensemble cast of young actors that carried the entire movie, it was a breakout hit. Naturally then , the green light was given for the rest of the book series to make its way to cinemas and now we have our first look at the sequel, The Scorch Trials. It follows directly where the last movie left off, with the teens in the custody of shadowy agency Wckd, and being goaded into another series of life or death tests that will push them to their limits. The sequel looks immediately more action-packed and the scale of the whole world they inhabit looks to have increased dramatically. If the movie delivers an adventure »

Underestimated by many including us, and kept going by firm fanbase, "The Maze Runner" is a Ya franchise survivor in a sea of also rans. And it's a feat made more remarkable given there are really no big names in the cast — certainly none on the level of Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson, Julianne Moore, and Philip Seymour Hoffman (to name a few) in "The Hunger Games" series or Shailene Woodley, Miles Teller, Kate Winslet, Octavia Spencer and more in the "Divergent" flicks. But yet, "The Maze Runner" pulled in a healthy $340 million worldwide last fall on a budget of $34 million. It's easy math, the numbers are good, and so comes "The Maze Runner: Scorch Trials." “The first movie was the mystery of ‘Where are we and what is this place? And can we get out?’ But the second movie is about the repercussions of getting out and the discovery of »

While Star Wars: The Force Awakens will undoubtedly be one of the biggest movies of the year—if not the biggest—it’s easy to forget that it’s essentially one of a number of blockbusters heading to the marketplace this year. The Force Awakens is, at its core, a big budget blockbuster movie intended to make Disney money. Speaking at this base level, it’s in direct competition with other similarly scaled features as varied as Terminator: Genisys and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2. So, aside from the fact that it’s freaking Star Wars, how do J.J. Abram and Co. intend to make the film stand apart from the other blockbusters angling for audience attention? In a new interview with Vanity Fair, co-writer Lawrence Kasdan offered an update on the production and noted a trend that Abrams is hoping to steer clear of: “This new movie, »

Taylor Swift's just-released 'Bad Blood' music video is positively jam-packed with movie references. From Kill Bill to The Hunger Games, Taylor and promo director Joseph Kahn have obviously been rummaging through their DVD collections to bring together their latest opus.

1. Kill Bill

A slow burn mystery in which the secrets aren’t so much about the crimes it explores but truths of women’s emotional lives that are too often ignored. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m desperate for movies about women

Mere weeks after two teenaged girls are released after seven years in juvenile detention for the horrific kidnap and killing of a baby, another little girl — one who bears a striking resemblance to the dead child — goes missing. Did they commit another murder? (Did they even both commit the first crime? Each is still placing all the blame entirely on the other.) Or does their small upstate New York town merely want this new kidnapping to be their doing?

Speaking to Collider, Banks was asked if she would consider directing again after Pitch Perfect 2, which debuted in Us and UK cinemas this weekend.
"I will say, it would be disingenuous to say that no one's talking about a Pitch Perfect 3; the possibility of it," she said. "We are really focused on getting as many butts in seats for this one. If fans embrace it, we are going to seriously think about what the continuing journey would look like, but we don't know what that is yet.
"I guess I really love the story of legacy in this one, I knew I wanted the riff-off to look pretty much exactly what the riff-off looks like in this movie and I knew what the finale looked like, so I had some »
Salma Hayek blasted the movie industry for giving up on women both behind and in front of the camera at a Variety-hosted event Saturday afternoon at the Cannes Film Festival.
“For a long time they thought the only thing we were interested in seeing were romantic comedies,” said Hayek, who appears in the Cannes drama “Tale of Tales.” “They don’t see us as a powerful economic force, which is an incredible ignorance.”
Joining the conversation about gender inequality in Hollywood were actresses Parker Posey (“Irrational Man”) and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan (“Jazbaa”), as well as producers Christine Vachon and Elizabeth Karlsen (who both worked on “Carol”). The event was co-hosted by the U.N. Women’s HeForShe campaign, and moderated by Variety co-editor-in-chief Claudia Eller and U.N. Women head Elizabeth Nyamayaro. Variety publisher Michelle Sobrino welcomed the crowd at the Radisson Blu hotel.

Hunger Games fans, get excited: The movie's very own theatre show is officially coming to London.
A 1,300-seater, custom-built venue created solely for the production - including a 360-degree rotating stage - has been given planning permission.
It will be built as part of a redevelopment of the area around Wembley Stadium, according to the Evening Standard.
The rotating design is the creation of Tony and Olivier Award-winning producer Robin de Levita.
He said: "I'm thrilled to be partnering with a studio like Lionsgate on something that resonates so deeply with audiences. The theatre is a fantastic medium to bring the many meaningful layers of Suzanne Collins's writing to life."
The Hunger Games' stage show will open in summer 2016.

Some sweet sisterhood and truly fantastic musical performances get dragged down by awkward, lazy, embarrassing attempts at humor. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

The wittiest bit in Pitch Perfect 2 comes literally as the film opens, with the podcasting musical commentators played by Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I) and John Michael Higgins (A Million Ways to Die in the West) a cappella-ing the Universal fanfare. And then it goes downhill from there… at least as a comedy. Competitive a-cappella all-girl singing group the Barden (University) Bellas are back for more of the same they gave us in the first film: some sweet sisterhood engaging in “proud female tradition” via truly fantastic musical performances, all of this »
