On The Rise 2014: 13 Actresses To Watch

20 August 2014 12:39 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We’re about to hit a real sea-change with the kind of movies Hollywood is making. For years, studio bosses shied away from the idea of making movies with female leads that weren’t weepies or romantic comedies, but last year saw the three of the top-grossing movies — “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “Frozen” and “Gravity”—star women, all in genres that are traditionally more male driven. Slowly but surely, audiences are proving that they’ll turn up and see actresses in parts that are more than just token roles, and studio executives are increasingly running out of excuses to stick with the status quo. (Unless their name is Kevin Feige, apparently.) And it’s lucky, because the depth and range of female talent that’s coming up is enormously impressive, and they deserve to have killer roles to take on. Yep, it’s the latest in our On The Rise series, »

‘Mockingjay’ Gets New Image And Detail On How The Two Films Will Work

19 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

November is almost upon us and that can only mean one thing, more Hunger Games. This time around we catch up with Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen as she becomes a reluctant rebel leader. Based on the third (and final) book in the series Mockingjay the film is being given the Harry Potter, and Twilight treatment; being split into two films. Some argue that the splitting into two films is needless with the studios clearly not quite ready to let go of their cash cow yet this time around that may not be so true.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly director Francis Lawrence addressed the issue of two films assuring that people will want two films once they see what is planned for them. It is Lawrence’s hope that by splitting the story in two parts he can focus on some aspects that the book glosses over.

New Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 Image; Director Francis Lawrence Talks Changes from the Book and Adding “New Elements”

18 August 2014 1:29 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of the best surprises of last year, for me at least, was The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.  I wasn’t particularly high on the fact that Francis Lawrence was taking over as the director of the franchise, and I assumed the films would now take on a more commercialized, standard-studio-fare sheen.  It turns I was very, very wrong, as Catching Fire actually opened up the themes of the series, deepened the characters, and delivered one of most exciting cliffhanger endings a franchise film has seen in some time.  Lionsgate has now released a new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 image featuring star Jennifer Lawrence from the first half of the conclusion to this series, and along with the image come some interesting comments from Francis Lawrence about how the franchise will be wrapping up. Lawrence says that while Mockingjay – Part 1 has a tonal shift from the previous films, »

'Mockingjay' director: Parts 1 and 2 will have 'two distinct stories'

18 August 2014 11:51 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Over the course of two Hunger Games films, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has been unflinchingly confident. But in Mockingjay – Part 1, the teen heroine suffers a bout of age-appropriate angst as she reluctantly becomes a rebel leader.

“It’s a very confusing, conflicted, complicated time for Katniss,” says director Francis Lawrence, who also directed 2013’s Catching Fire. “Having gone through the games one more time and having lost Peeta and having been run through the wringer, she’s even more damaged. So you find her in a more agitated place. She’s distraught, confused, angry.”

Keanu Reeves Hitman Starrer 'John Wick' Added to October Release Slate

14 August 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Lionsgate has announced they'll be releasing John Wick starring Keanu Reeves on October 24, putting it up against Universal's board game adaptation Ouija and the Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy starrer St. Vincent. The film, directed by stuntmen turned directors, David Leitch (Jupiter Ascending) and Chad Stahelski (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), centers on a retired hitman (Reeves) whose murderous instincts are reawakened when a thug steals his 1969 Ford Mustang and in the process kills the dog given to him by his late wife. The film co-stars Adrianne Palicki, Willem Dafoe, Michael Nyqvist and Bridget Moynahan. I don't think the studio is thinking this is some sort of awards move, instead it appears to be a counter-programming decision and if the synopsis suggests anything, perhaps it will be a good dose of R-rated, tough guy entertainment. Just below is a video shot from the set and you can see some pictures right here. »

Betty Boop is getting a movie… from Simon Cowell?

14 August 2014 11:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Your eyes aren’t deceiving you, you absolutely read that headline correctly. According to Variety, American Idol and The X Factor producer Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment is teaming up with Animal Logic Entertainment for a feature-length film featuring the 1930s cartoon icon, Betty Boop.

The film is described as a “music-driven hybrid animated comedy,” and has been in the works for several months now. Here’s what Cowell had to say about the project:

“Betty is an icon, and one of the biggest stars in the world – I’m thrilled to be working with her. Betty, I’ve worked with some serious divas but I think you could be the biggest of them all!”

Mark Fleischer, the owner of the Betty Boop rights and CEO of Fleischer Studios, said,

“I am delighted to partner with Syco Entertainment and Animal Logic. Their energy, creativity, and playfulness make them a perfect fit for Betty Boop. »

Betty Boop Movie in the Works with Simon Cowell (Exclusive)

14 August 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Betty Boop is returning to the big screen, with Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment and Animal Logic Entertainment developing and producing the first feature-length film for the feisty cartoon flapper.

The project has been in the works for several months with Fleischer Studios, owner of the Betty Boop charater, partnering with Syco Entertainment and Animal Logic — which performed the animation for “The Lego Movie” — on a music-driven hybrid animated comedy.

Producers are Zareh Nalbandian and Jason Lust from Animal Logic and Simon Cowell and Adam Milano from Syco. No writer or director is attached yet.

Betty Boop first appeared in 1930 and made numerous appearances in Max Fleischer’s “Talkartoons” and her own cartoon series as a fun-loving, flirtatious character with a signature line  “Boop-oop-a-doop!”

The bobbed-hair, short-skirted character became the first female animated star at the end of the Roaring ’20s.

The Quiet Ones (2014) review

13 August 2014 9:11 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Grace Fontaine, MoreHorror.com

The Quiet Ones (2014)

Directed by John Pogue

Written by Craig Rosenberg, John Pogue, Oren Moverman and Tom de Ville

Starring: Jared Harris (Professor Joseph Coupland), Sam Claflin (Brian McNeil), Olivia Cooke (Jane Harper), Rory-Fleck Byrne (Harry Abrams) and Erin Richards (Kristina Dalton)

Speaking strictly for myself, I find there are a dearth of quality films that deal predominantly with the supernatural. The last really good offerings of this sub genre in recent years were “Lake Mungo”, “Resolution” and “The Conjuring”. All three were met with general praise although “Lake Mungo” and “Resolution” did not get nearly as much exposure as “The Conjuring” was blessed with. “The Quiet Ones”, released under the newly-resurrected Hammer Horror studios started principal filming back in 2012 and was released two years later. Although the name ‘Hammer Studios’ is not enough to raise hackles of excitement in this day and age, »

‘Divergent’ Leads Home Video Sales Charts

13 August 2014 5:35 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

And the hits keep coming.

Three new releases captured the top three positions on the national home video sales charts the week ending Aug. 10, led by Lionsgate’s “Divergent.”

The sci-fi actioner, set in a post-apocalyptic Chicago where people are divided into factions based on human virtues, debuted at No. 1 on both the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks overall disc sales, Blu-ray Disc and DVD combined, and Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

Lionsgate hopes the film, which earned $150.95 million in theaters, is the start of a “Hunger Games”-style franchise, complete with a strong female lead and dystopian future.

The No. 2 spot on both charts went to “God’s Not Dead,” a Christian drama from Pure Flix Entertainment and distributed to the home video market by Cinedigm. Nielsen data shows the film, with a domestic box office gross of $60.8 million, sold 35.9% as many units as “Divergent. »
