Box Office Democracy: The Divergent Series: Insurgent

24 March 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

There’s a murkiness to The Divergent Series that is utterly baffling. Does it want to be The Hunger Games? While the obvious answer to that question would be “yes” I’m growing less and less sure by the moment. It feels like there was a meeting at some point during the production process where it was decided that they probably couldn’t reach the popularity or, frankly, the quality of The Hunger Games but that they could probably make a great deal of money by making a comparable product. Divergent is the result of that cynical take on filmmaking. Where Catching Fire brought in a new director and turned that franchise from a quick cash-in to a legitimate statement piece of media, Insurgent seems content to collapse under the weight of its own narrative and slouch toward the end of the series confident that it won’t be abandoned »

Why The Hobbit Fails Where The Lord of the Rings Succeeded

20 March 2015 12:19 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy drew to a close last year, and with the final piece of the puzzle in place fans can look at the larger picture for the films.  Each film has divided fans, with some loving the adaptations and others loathing it.  Personally, The Hobbit never reached the same potential, nor impact, as The Lord of the Rings despite featuring a lot of similarities and arguably bigger set pieces.  Having thought on it for a while, I think I’ve figured out why Lord of the Rings worked where The Hobbit seemingly failed.  Come inside to check it out!

My disappointment in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy isn't exactly a secret, but you can believe me when I say that no one is more bummed about that than I am.  I was anxiously awaiting these films and the opportunity to return to Middle-earth, considering how »

What's in a Trailer Viewc Do Viewing Records Even Matterc

20 March 2015 11:04 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

By the end of 2014, the trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey was the most viewed trailer of the year with a reported 93 million total views. Second was the trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens with 81 million after it was reported earlier in the year the Star Wars trailer had amassed 58.2 million views in its first four days, besting the current record (at the time) held by Avengers: Age of Ultron, which finished 2014 with an estimated 78 million online views. What does all this meanc Well, one thing is for certain, it means if your movie gets a lot of trailer views it's likely to make a lot of money. This is good news for the likes of Jurassic World and Furious 7, but what of the recent press release from Sony announcing the trailer for Pixels was the studio's #1 trailer launch of all timec Sony announced the »

"Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" - A Female 'Robin' ?

20 March 2015 10:04 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to some reports, actress Jena Malone ("The Hunger Games: Catching Fire") will be introduced as 'Robin', the iconic sidekick of 'Batman' in director Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice":

Malone is reportedly playing DC Comics' female 'Robin', 'Carrie Kelley', created by Frank Miller, first appearing in DC Comics' "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns" #1. (1986). 

"...'Carrie' was a schoolgirl and girl scout who was attacked by muggers one night, but was saved by the recently returned and grizzled elder Batman on his first night out of retirement.

"She would then spend her lunch money on a 'Robin' costume and hunt down some petty con-men to find Batman again, using a slingshot loaded with firecrackers as weapons.

Her parents were very neglectful of her, as one-time activists and hippies during the 1960's that became 'apathetic stoners'..."

From Insurgent to Blade Runner: why is the future on film always so grim?

19 March 2015 11:51 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A miserable vision of tomorrow has taken hold of Hollywood: bad food, lousy transport and Alice Cooper styling. You’re better off dead

We are now living in a golden age of dystopian films; that is, incredibly depressing films set at some point in the future – often, the relatively near future – where life is a complete mess and no one is happy, not even the fascist scum who run things. In the few instances where people seem to be happy, it’s only because the fascist scum have tricked them into thinking they’re happy. Well, they won’t stay happy for long. This is not utopia. This is utopia turned on its head. This is dystopia.

Last year, there was a tsunami of dystopian films, including The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Divergent, The Maze Runner, Robocop, The Purge: Anarchy, Snowpiercer, The Rover, »

The first Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 poster has flown in, and with it brings the release of the totem bird.

A new video in promotion of the final installment of the franchise pays tribute to the films that came before it, while gloriously depicting how the lonely Mockingjay spread its wings into a glowing phoenix. When the bird was confined to its pin, clutching an arrow in its beak for the first film, the rebellion was nothing but a twinkle in Katniss. eye as she volunteered to replace her sister in the devastating games. For Catching Fire, the bird perched itself atop a rotating clock, as Katniss and the veteran tributes entered the tropical dome of the arena. Mockingjay, Part 1 saw both Katniss and »

‘The Hunger Games’ Fends Off ‘Night at the Museum’ on Home Video Sales Charts

18 March 2015 5:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate’s “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1” topped the national home video sales charts for the second consecutive week, despite a strong challenge from 20th Century Fox’s “Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb” – also the third installment in a popular theatrical franchise.

“Secret of the Tomb,” which grossed $112.7 million in U.S. theaters to “Mockingjay’s” $337 million, debuted at No. 2 on both sales charts for the week ending March 15: the overall chart and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart, both from Nielsen VideoScan.

Nielsen data shows “Secret of the Tomb” sold 71% as many copies in its first week in stores as “Mockingjay” did in week two – a strong showing, given the box office disparity between the two. In its second week in stores, “Mockingjay” sold 64% as many copies as it did its first week in stores, Nielsen data shows.

Coming in at No. 3, also on both charts, »

Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Finnick (Sam Claflin), and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) – Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.

MTV Movie Awards predictions: 'Hunger Games' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy' divide users

17 March 2015 9:27 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1" will win Movie of the Year at the MTV Movie Awards according to our Top 24 Users. Our Top 24 were the highest-scorers when predicting last year's awards, and just over half of them (13) favor the penultimate installment of the dystopian saga starring Jennifer Lawrence, giving it 21/20 odds. -Break- The previous "Hunger Games" film, "Catching Fire," won Movie of the Year in 2014. Before that, the first "Hunger Games" was nominated in 2012, but lost. That was because it was up against the "Twilight" juggernaut, which took top honors for the fourth time in a row that year. But 11 of the Top 24 disagree with the consensus, and of those, seven favor the sci-fi actioner "Guardians of the Galaxy" instead, giving it 13/5 odds. "Guardians" comes into these awards with the most nominations (seven), and the last time a Marvel movie competed in th...' »

Fifty Shades Stars Want 7-Figure Raises for Sequels: Report

11 March 2015 11:25 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

All that kinky sex apparently comes at a cost. The stars of Fifty Shades of Grey are reportedly seeking raises of more than a million dollars each for the film's two sequels, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. While that doesn't hold a candle to the $100,000 per hour that Christian Grey makes, the raise is a hefty bump in paycheck for both Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, who earned only $250,000 apiece for the first movie, plus box office bonuses, reports the trade magazine. And though the raise may seem astronomical, it's actually par for the course. "It was a very basic franchise starter deal, »

Jamie Dornan And Dakota Johnson Seek Major Raise For Fifty Shades Of Grey Sequel

11 March 2015 9:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Universal’s kink-fuelled desire to trot out a sequel to Fifty Shades Of Grey has been hindered by a series of hurdles in spite of its $525 million worldwide haul. That impressive figure netted the studio a handsome return on the film’s measly $40 million budget – but financial extravagance can’t soothe the sting of a troubled production. On set battles between director Sam Taylor-Johnson and author E.L. James were reported on the first outing. That matter since bubbled up further with career-ending talk from the helmer, amid concern from James over who should pen the follow-up, Fifty Shades Darker.

The next issue to arise stems from the film’s two stars: Jamie Dornan, who played billionaire misogynist Christian Grey, and Dakota Johnson, who tapped into her breathy helpless side as his sex lackey Anastasia Steele. In spite of their onscreen coupling generating no chemistry whatsoever, the duo are now seeking »
