No, someone named Shane never cheated on me. It will be nice to someday tell the story of what’s happened in the last few years. Ppl read the headline, not the correction, I’ve learned.”

Yes No Maybe So: Jacob Tremblay is a "Wonder"

25 May 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Nathaniel R

From a distance the forthcoming film Wonder (2017) looks like Mask (1985) for the junior high set. The film is based on the novel of the same name by Rj Palacio about Auggie, a boy who enters school after years of home schooling due to his many surgeries and complications with a rare facial deformity. Jacob Tremblay, in demand post Room, plays the main character Auggie. The film is directed by Stephen Chbosky who already has some experience with transferring Ya novels to the screen since he transferred his own for his directorial debut The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012). Wonder is his sophomore effort though this time he left the screenwriting to another. Steven Conrad, who previously adapted The Pursuit of Happyness and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty to screen, adapts.

‘Wonder’ Trailer: Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson Lead An Uplifting Tearjerker — Watch

24 May 2017 7:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Get the tissues out, this one is going to tug at your heartstrings. (Unless you’re a monster).

In the first official trailer for “Wonder,” Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson play the parents of Auggie, a fifth grader born with severe facial differences who is struggling to fit in at a new school. Played by up-and-comer Jacob Tremblay, who wowed audiences for his performance in “Room,” Auggie just wants to be treated like any other kid. His concerned parents know how cruel children can be, but maybe it’s really the adults who have the problem.

With Wonder, author Stephen Chbosky returns to the director’s chair for the first time since he helmed the film adaptation of his novel The Perks of Being a Wallflower in 2012. Adapted from the novel by R. J. Palacio, Wonder focuses on August “Auggie” Pullman (played by Room’s Jacob Tremblay), a 10-year-old with facial differences struggling to fit into a world where others tend to avoid or mock him.

Wonder was originally scheduled for release in April, but after several test screenings, Lionsgate pushed it back to November 17, where it will now go head-to-head with Zack Snyder’s Justice League. The first trailer has now arrived for the film also starring Mandy Patinkin, Sonia Braga and Daveed Diggs, and it can be seen below, along with the poster. »

Jada Pinkett Smith and Queen Latifah get rowdy in the new trailer for Girls Trip

11 May 2017 5:28 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Hold on to your knickers, another Hangover-inspired film based on the ‘fairer’ sex is about to gracelessly hit our screens in Girls Trip. Judging from the newly released trailer it isn’t far off the upcoming Rough Night, except there are no accidentally dead male stripper in sight.

Do you fancy watching Jada Pinkett Smith releasing her bowels while suspended from mid-air onto a gazing crowd, or even four feisty women getting high on Absinthe and causing an all out brawl in a dance-off in the middle of a club? Well, that’s what you get as the four lifelong friends decide to get away for the weekend and relive their younger days as potty mouths take hold as well as their raging sexual hormones. Oh, these ladies are nasty, lively and horny and slightly offensive when one declares “I’m getting white girl drunk” – well, this »

What is the modern teen movie?

9 May 2017 1:10 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Henry Bevan on the modern teen movie…

Jerky jocks; nebbish nerds; the girl next door who is unfairly called a whore; the hot girl; the bitchy cheerleader; the ugly girl who’s actually a swan; the self-loathing teachers; teachers who sleep with students; teachers who are bad at their jobs; crowded school corridors; cool kids who drive; losers who get the bus; clueless mums; perfect siblings; house parties with professional DJs; sex (sometimes); beer; horny virgins; and prom.

Teen movie tropes are well known. Whether the teenagers are forming a witches coven, or if promises are kept, being superheroes, they abide by rules that haven’t changed much since John Hughes.

Hughes created our perception of how fictional and real teenagers should act in high school. He understood how deeply emotional teenagers are and he wasn’t afraid of his films being emotionally truthful. Every main character in a Hughes movie is an outsider, »

‘The Circle’: 5 Reasons Why Tom Hanks and Emma Watson’s Movie Bombed

1 May 2017 3:38 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Nobody sets out to make a bad movie. So why did cautionary tech thriller “The Circle” — adapted by lauded writer-director James Ponsoldt (“The Spectacular Now,” “The End of the Tour”) and beloved novelist Dave Eggers from his own 2013 bestseller — earn such negative reviews (43 on Metacritic, 17 on Rotten Tomatoes) and bomb at the box office ($9.3 million in 3,163 theaters)?

The movie went wrong in five significant ways.

1. The movie was foreign financed.

The Circle” was developed by A-list ex-DreamWorks producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald’s Parkes+MacDonald Image Nation, which raised financing from Imagenation Abu Dhabi Fz and foreign sales company FilmNation on the power of Tom Hanks, who was the first star on board via his Playtone banner.

In order to raise an $18-million budget, globally bankable star Emma Watson was cast in a central leading role that demanded she be in every scene. Veering in tone from satiric comedy to naturalistic drama, »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice gets a buddy cop-inspired fan-made trailer

1 May 2017 3:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The wacky Internet is utilizing its creativity again, this time with a fan-made trailer from Chief Brody Rules for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that envisions the blockbuster as a buddy cop action comedy in the same vein as classics such as Lethal Weapon.

Throughout the course of the three-minute trailer are footage and sound clips from many other films (some from the Dceu and some not), along with a lighthearted soundtrack that certainly switches up the tone from what Zack Snyder delivered with the DC blockbuster. Check out the silliness below…

The Flash movie has a new title, more details

28 April 2017 4:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Simon Brew Rob Leane Jul 24, 2017

Flashpoint is the new name for The Flash movie, it's been confirmed...

It was announced at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend that the Flash movie is now called Flashpoint and will adapt Geoff Johns' famous and controversial storyline, which saw Barry Allen go back in time to save his mother from being killed by Reverse-Flash. The change had huge ramifications for the future of the DC Universe, altering many things and eventually leading to a brand new timeline known as the New 52 in the comics.

While that's unlikely to happen here, it could allow for a refresh of some of the more controversial elements of the Dceu. More importantly, though, this opens the door to a significant number of potential superheroic guest stars. 

The story has already been adapted twice: once as an excellent animated »

No, Dylan Minnette and Logan Lerman Are Not the Same Person

26 April 2017 3:55 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Image Source: Getty / Slaven Vlasic / Jason Merritt Dylan Minnette is one of many stars of Netflix's breakout hit 13 Reasons Why. He's been acting for over a decade, yet people are still confusing him with another young, good-looking white dude: Logan Lerman. Logan notably led the Percy Jackson films after winning out hearts in the short-lived series Jack & Bobby. You may know him as Charlie from The Perks of Being a Wallflower - a movie we actually suggest to fans of 13 Reasons Why - but he's certainly not the guy playing Clay Jensen. The two completely unrelated actors are actually four years apart; Dylan was born in 1996, and Logan is slightly older, with a 1992 birthday. Dylan has gotten so used to the comparison that he even tweeted about it on April 1, saying, "Alright, April Fools; I Am Logan Lerman." While we don't necessarily think they look like twins now, the resemblance »
