The 2014 Sad Bastard Awards: 'Mockingjay,' 'Oitnb,' 'Game of Thrones,' Grammys

13 December 2014 1:12 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Moe from "The Simpsons." All of Damien Rice's albums. "Winnie the Pooh's" Eyeore. Steve Buscemi's Seymour in "Ghost World." Sad bastards are sometimes the leads, like Matthew McConaughey's Rusty in "True Detective" or Hazel in "Fault in Our Stars." Sometimes they're just the whipping boy like Philip Seymour Hoffman in "The Big Lebowski" or the stricken Ellinor in "The Knick." And sometimes they're not even characters: they're just Drake. Sad sacks deserve their own recognition, because we kind of love them due to, in spite of and aside from their sinking-rock sulk. So as part of our Year-End roundup from 2014, we've decided to recognize the sourest, most unfortunate characters in TV movies and even music: The 2014 HitFix Sad Bastard Awards. Check out who we picked from "Mad Men," "Rectify," "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay," the Grammys, "Game of Thrones," "Orange Is The New Black" and more. »

New Trailer for The Divergent Series: Insurgent

12 December 2014 2:34 PM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Following the slightly head-trippy teaser, a full length trailer has hit for The Divergent Series: Insurgent, telling another chapter the story of Tris (Shailene Woodley) as she battles against the power hungry Erudite, lead by Jeanine (Kate Winslet). With The Hunger Games wrapping up next year, it's clear that The Divergent Series (there's gotta be a name that is less of a mouthful) is keen to step into the void left, and this new trailer does promise some intriguing wrinkles in the story began in the original movie. Release: 20th March 2015 Synopsis: Tris Prior must confront her inner demons and continue her fight against a powerful alliance which threatens to tear her society apart. »

‘Exodus’ Will Rule U.S. Box Office With $25 Million Weekend

12 December 2014 1:30 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Christian Bale’s “Exodus: Gods and Kings” is set to take the U.S. box office crown this weekend with early Friday estimates showing an opening of about $25 million.

Fox’s Biblical epic looks likely to take in about $9 million Friday, including $1.2 million from late Thursday shows. A $25 million launch would be in line with recent forecasts, the most bullish of which went as high as $30 million.

The weekend will finish well below the year-ago period, when “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” kicked off with $73.6 million. “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” opens next Friday in the U.S.

“Exodus,” which carries a production cost of $140 million, is debuting at 3,503 locations.  The film debuted last weekend in 10 foreign markets including South Korea and Mexico, picking up $23.1 million; as of Wednesday, that number had surpassed $32 million as the film moves into another 38 markets.

What the Hell Should We Call the New Divergent Movie?

12 December 2014 12:45 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Readers, we are in peril. The promotional campaign for the second film in the Divergent film series is ramping up, and we have no idea what to call the dang thing. The problem started with author Veronica Roth, who gave each title in her dystopian trilogy a different rhyming name: Divergent, Insurgent, and Allegiant. This isn't too uncommon in Ya series — Twilight and The Hunger Games did the same thing — since the books will all live next to each other on shelves, but it won't do for films. That's why we've ended up with our multiplexes swamped by a tsunami of colons: Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. (Think of how the Bond franchise would have turned out had it began today; we'd all be going to see James Bond: Casino Royale Part II: Quantum of Solace.)By modern movie-title logic, »

The Hunger Games' days on top of the box office will be over when Exodus: Gods and Kings arrives in 3,503 theaters this weekend, attracting viewers who want to spend their days off watching Christian Bale re-enact biblical sequences. Along with the bible epic, Chris Rock's Top Five is also making its big-screen debut on nearly 1,000 screens while Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice hits theaters for the first time—but only in five locations, not enough to warrant any box office waves.

Simon Pegg Is A Moustachioed Hitman In Kill Me Three Times Trailer

11 December 2014 12:42 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

More often that not, Simon Pegg’s cheeky antics have either been centre stage in intimate genre pics (Shaun Of The Dead, The World’s End) or supporting turns in major blockbusters (Mission: Impossible, Star Trek). Aside from the comedy misfire Hector And The Search For Happiness, his starring turns have remained low-key. That could all be about to change, however, with the advent of director Kriv Stenders’ black comedy, Kill Me Three Times.

Currently garnering reviews after a stint on the festival circuit, the first trailer for the movie has hit the web – and it looks like an absolute hoot. With a script by newcomer James McFarland, Kill Me Three Times follows Pegg’s assassin who is keen to take a fifty grand job offered to him. Heading to the Aussie surfing town of Eagle’s Nest, things get interesting when he realises that not only is his target the delectable Alice Braga, »
