Jennifer Lawrence Confirms 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Will be Her Last 'X-Men' Movie

23 March 2015 4:15 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Jennifer Lawrence turns 25 this August. In the first 24 years of her life she's become a three-time Oscar nominated actress, an Oscar winner and star of not one, but two major franchises, both of which will be coming to a conclusion in the near future with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 arriving in theaters in November and X-Men: Apocalypse on May 27, 2016. While Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer told analysts back in February that he is "actively looking at some development and thinking about prequel and sequel possibilities" for The Hunger Games there is no word on whether or not that would involve Lawrence, but it seems one thing is for certain, no matter what comes after Apocalypse it won't involve Lawrence's Mystique. Speaking with MTV, Lawrence was asked if Apocalypse would be her last X-Men film and she replied, "It is my last one, actually. Yes." I know, not a lot, »

'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Projected to Open at $217 Million, Can 'Star Wars' Beat Itc

11 March 2015 3:50 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The highest opening weekend of 2015 so far was the mid-January result tallied by American Sniper when it brought in $89.2 million in its wide expansion. Fifty Shades of Grey wasn't too far behind with its $85.1 million. Last year it was the $121.8 million opening for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 that ended up the highest opening of the year followed by Transformers: Age of Extinction ($100m), Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($95m) and Guardians of the Galaxy ($94.3m), but 2015 looks as if it may have a juggernaut no one can compete with, Avengers: Age of Ultron. Back in 2012, The Avengers opened to the tune of a record-breaking $207.4 million, more than $33 million more than second place held by Iron Man 3, but now Bloomberg is reporting the sequel is likely to top that figure once it arrives on May 1, predicting an opening around $217 million. Of course, this isn't much of a surprise. »

Moore Best Actress Oscar Helps 'Alice' But Not 'Maps': Box Office

1 March 2015 4:44 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Still Alice' and 'Maps to the Stars' box office: Julianne Moore Oscar helps only one movie (photo: Kristen Stewart and Julianne Moore in 'Still Alice') (See previous post: "'The Lazarus Effect' Box Office: Olivia Wilde Horror Movie Arrives Comatose.") The Oscars do matter. As mentioned in the previous post, Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman was up an estimated 125 percent this weekend, Feb. 27-March 1, 2015, following its four Academy Award wins – including Best Picture. Also up a hefty 24 percent – after adding 553 locations – is Sony Pictures Classics' Still Alice, which earned Julianne Moore the year's Best Actress Oscar for her performance as a woman in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. True, an Oscar win – or key nominations – may not create mammoth blockbusters like Francis Lawrence's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, Sam Taylor-Johnson's Fifty Shades of Grey, or Clint Eastwood's American Sniper. For that, »

Julianne Moore is finally an Oscar winner

22 February 2015 9:01 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After five Academy Award nominations and a career's worth of bold, varied performances, Julianne Moore is finally an Oscar winner. The "Still Alice" star was tipped to win the Best Actress prize at the 87th Academy Awards as early as the film's debut at the Toronto Film Festival, where it was acquired by Sony Pictures Classics and set on the fast track for a fall release amplified by an awards campaign. So it was little shock to those in the audience at the Dolby Theater or those watching at home when Matthew McConaughey announced her name. "There is no such thing as Best Actress, as is evidenced by the performances of my fellow nominees," the 54-year-old legend said. "I have been honored to be with you every step of the way." Interesting factoid: Only nine times in the 87-year history of the Academy Awards has a woman over 50 won the Best Actress Oscar. »

Peeta is then escorted into Snow's office, where the president hides behind pleasantries to make sure Peeta knows who is in charge.

After hearing what Snow has to say, Peeta asks: "So you are asking me to be your voice of reason?"

"You've understood everything but one small detail," Snow replies. "I'm not asking."

The Hunger Games: Lionsgate confirms it wants more films

8 February 2015 10:47 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Once The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 is over with, Lionsgate will be hunting for more Hunger Games movies...

This November, Lionsgate will release the fourth and seemingly final film in The Hunger Games series, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2. When it does that, it'll have completed the film adaptations of Suzanne Collins' books, and the studio will also have seemingly come to the end of what's been - by distance - its biggest ever movie franchise.

However, last year, it was rumoured that Lionsgate was hunting for ways to prolong The Hunger Games on the big screen. And thanks to a new call with investors - the modern way to announce such things, it seems - the studio has now confirmed its plans for more The Hunger Games once Mockingjay is done.

CEO Jon Feltheimer has revealed that Lionsgate is "actively looking at some development »

8 February 2015 3:49 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are reportedly in talks to lead new sci-fi romance film Passengers.

Variety reports that Lawrence is in early talks to star in the Sony film, while TheWrap reveals that Pratt is being lined up as her co-lead.

The film, which has been in development for several years, is set on a spacecraft in the future, with thousands of passengers making an interstellar voyage to a distant planet.

When one passenger awakens from cryogenic sleep 90 years early, he decides to wake a female passenger to end his loneliness.

The Imitation Game director Morten Tyldum is apparently nearing a deal to direct the drama. The script is penned by Prometheus and Doctor Strange writer Jon Spaihts.

Neal Moritz and Ori Marmur will produce with Michael Maher and Stephen Hamel.

Lawrence will be seen in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 later this year, while Pratt is starring in Jurassic World. »

Lionsgate Wants More 'Hunger Games,' Plans Franchise Exhibition

6 February 2015 9:36 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Along with this morning's news that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 would be the first installment of the whole franchise to hit screens in IMAX 3D, there's also word from Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer that Lionsgate is actually thinking about new ways to keep the series alive on the big screen. Deadline reports the executive was speaking with analysts this morning and said they were "actively looking at some development and thinking about prequel and sequel possibilities." That's no guarantee that we'll see more films in The Hunger Games series, but there are discussions happening behind the scenes now. At first, this seems like a stupid idea. But at the same time, there are decades of Hunger Games that happened in the world of Panem before the story in the book series and film franchise begins. Of course, just revisiting older games wouldn't be enough to make the story interesting. »
