More Hunger Games and Twilight Movies Planned at Lionsgate

More Hunger Games and Twilight Movies Planned at Lionsgate
It's been just two years since the Hunger Games franchise came to an end, but even before The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 hit theaters, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltenheimer teased that the studio is "actively developing" prequel and sequel ideas to continue the franchise. We haven't heard anything concrete on this front since then, but during an earnings conference call, Jon Feltenheimer again teased that the studio not only wants more Hunger Games movies, but more Twilight movies as well. However, he also seemed to indicate that these projects would not move forward unless the franchise creators are involved. Here's what he had to say during the investor's call below.

"There are a lot more stories to be told, and we're ready to tell them when our creators are ready to tell those stories."

Shortly after The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 hit theaters, rumors of Hunger Games prequels started to surface,

'Beauty and the Beast' Hopes to Tell a Tale of a March Opening Weekend Record

'Beauty and the Beast' Hopes to Tell a Tale of a March Opening Weekend Record
Thus far, 2017 is without a $100 million opener, but that will all change this weekend as Disney's latest animated classic turned live action film, Beauty and the Beast, is set to open in over 4,200 theaters in Us and Canada. In addition to becoming the first $100 million opener of 2017, this "tale as old as time" may challenge Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice for the March opening weekend record and rank among the top ten all-time domestic openers. All told, this weekend will see the top twelve smash the $122 million the top twelve grossed from the same weekend last year. In fact, Beauty and the Beast should easily top $122 million all on its own. Anticipation for Disney's Beauty and the Beast has been sky high for some time now as Disney has taken every opportunity to market the fantasy feature online and across all its media channels. As of March 6, online ticket retailer Fandango.

Watch: First Trailer For Mel Gibson's Gritty, Violent 'Blood Father'

This year, the career resurrection of Mel Gibson will get two shots in the arm. He's back behind the camera with a new directorial effort, helming the WWII tale "Hacksaw Ridge" starring Andrew Garfield, Sam Worthington, Teresa Palmer, and Gibson himself. But first out of the gate is "Blood Father" which looks like a straight up B-movie, the kind Liam Neeson has been doing lately, but with some pretty decent talent helping to shape it.

‘Mockingjay’ Helps Propel New Paris’ Studios Kremlin Into Limelight

‘Mockingjay’ Helps Propel New Paris’ Studios Kremlin Into Limelight
Paris — Located in Ivry-sur-Seine, a fast developing pole for film and TV production on the outskirts of Paris, Studios Kremlin occupies a former factory building. It launched in 2014 and immediately shot to prominence as a production base for “Hunger Games: Mockingjay” parts 1 and 2.

In 2015, it received two grants from the Cnc to invest in its studio infrastructure, and has recently installed a three-side green screen cyclorama.

Due to being housed in a former industrial building, the studio has a very high ceiling that is extensively used by commercials and music videos that need to use drones inside the studio. The industrial setting also attracts shoots looking for post-industrial decors.

Recent productions include Clovis Cornillac’s “Un Peu Beaucoup Aveuglement », Jean-Patrick Benes’ sci-fi pic “Arés,” La Danseuse” by Stephanie di Giusto, and TV series “Disney Dance Talents” and “Alcootest.”

The space of Studios Kremlin also houses production services houses, including the French stuntmen’s federation,

Exclusive: Watch a clip from 'The Hunger Games' collection, available this spring
In 2008, Suzanne Collins released “The Hunger Games” into the world. Four years later the movie would cement Jennifer Lawrence as a blockbuster star. But all good things must come to an end. Last year the final installment — “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part II” — brought the entirety of Panem society crashing down. If you had read the books, you probably joined in the discussions about whether the film would dare go as far as the novels to show that war rarely has winners. Well, they did it. They dared to blur the line between heroes and villains. In the clip above — exclusive to HitFix Harpy ahead of the home video release — even Katniss isn’t immune to succumbing to her darker instincts.

Republicans Want to Bomb Magical Aladdin City

Agrabah: 'Aladdin' city that Republicans want to bomb. Is Agrabah Burning? Nearly 1 in 3 Republican primary voters want to bomb 'Aladdin' city According to a new poll by Public Policy Polling, based in Raleigh, North Carolina, nearly one third of 532 Republican primary voters support bombing Agrabah. Agrabah? Is that the name of the “capital” of Daesh (a.k.a. Is / Isis)? Or perhaps that's the place where Jihadis buy their weapons of mass murder? A hummus-filled North African dish maybe? Wrong. Wrong (you must be thinking of some U.S. gun store or European back alley). Wrong. Agrabah is actually the name of a city located in the exotic land of Arabia, itself located in … Aladdin, the 1992 animated Disney movie directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, and featuring the voices of Robin Williams, Scott Weinger, and Linda Larkin. So, why would so many Republicans want to bomb it?

Film Review: Grim Conclusion for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2’

Chicago – This has to be what the filmmakers intended when they split the final book of the “Hunger Games” series into two films. While “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1” was all set up, Part 2 doesn’t just lead up to a huge climax.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

It’s all climax in a campaign that barely stops to breathe. When the characters aren’t running for their lives they’re engaged in a passionless love triangle. It’s all brooding conversations in darkness, and booby traps as Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) marches on the Capitol to stick an arrow through President Snow’s (Donald Sutherland) heart.

This series is no one’s idea of great filmmaking, but they do have enough resources and tools at their disposal to elevate them above the usual Young Adult franchises. Gone are the social and political commentaries and the fantastical world of the capitol filled with extravagent excess.
