26 Mistakes Fans Missed In The Most Popular Ya Movies

The Young adult genre took off in full steam by the mid-2000s. It was first boomed into popularity thanks To Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s release in 2001, but that film was still considered to be more of a children’s film than an all-out Young adult venture at the time. Once the Harry Potter movies began maturing, the genre became more interesting, and so, several other Young adult series came into fruition on the big screen.

Twilight's release in 2008 truly began the Young adult fandom. With Harry Potter already going strong too, Divergent, The Hunger Games, Eragon, and The Maze Runner joined the fray. All these films were successful to varying degrees and these were all so much in our faces that the concept of the Young adult film was firmly established.

Now, the genre seems to have faded away with people having mostly moved on to other genres.

BumbleBee Interviews: Hailee Steinfeld & John Cena on why they joined the first Transformers spin off movie

Michael Bay has brought Hasbro’s Transformers to the cinema in a big way over the last decade. The tales of Cybertron’s Optimus Prime, Megatron and, of course, fan-favourite BumbleBee have made a huge dent at the box office. Now it’s time for the yellow bug to get his own film. BumbleBee goes back to the 80s, complete with G1 (Generation 1) Transformers such as Shockwave, Soundwave and Ravage and a kicking soundtrack. It may well be the film fans since the 80s have always wanted to see.

This evening at the IMAX Cineworld in Leicester Square, London a special fan screening took place, with stars Hailee Steinfeld and WWE superstar John Cena walked the red carpet for the first Transformers spin-off film along with Kubo and the Two Strings director Travis Knight.

The film also stars Justin Theroux, The Maze Runner’s Dylan O’Brien, Angela Bassett, Peter Cullen,

Bumblebee finds his voice in Dylan O’Brien

It looks like Bumblebee will finally find his voice in the upcoming Transformers spinoff, as IGN has revealed that Dylan O’Brien is set to voice the fan favourite Autobot in this month’s Bumblebee movie.

“Since we were approaching this as an origin story, we felt that it was appropriate that you got to hear his voice,” said producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura with regards to the character, who in the Michael Bay movies was restricted to communicating via pre-existing media through his car radio. “That’s the simple logic that we employed. The longer term implication of that is different. But the short-term implication of that is, since we really are resetting the mythology, essentially, of who Bumblebee is. And so, that seemed to us to be the appropriate, to get the chance to hear what he sounds like.”

“Dylan has that great quality in his voice of youthful exuberance,

10 Best Anti-Establishment Films

  • Cinelinx
Some of the most influential films in history have been the ones that push back against the establishment. Here’s a look at our picks for the ten best films which most effectively fight “the man”.

Are you frustrated with the complacency in the world around you? Does it feel like the system is rigged to give some people all the breaks while you’re stuck treading water, no matter how hard you work? Are you upset with a government that doesn’t actually listen to its people, and act accordingly? These are sentiments that have been tackled often in film. After all, frustration is a powerful motivator. Everyone can enjoy a movie where corruption gets what it deserves. Everyone enjoys characters who fight back against the inequalities they experience.

This is a list of the ten films which I believe best encompass those sentiments. Of course, all anti-establishment films are not equal.

Nicolas Cage and Kelsey Grammer have been cast in Grand Isle, a thriller directed by camera operator Stephen S. Campanelli, whose C.V. includes the likes of Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby, The Maze Runner, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and A Star Is Born.

The New Horror Film From the Director of Hereditary is Coming Next Summer

Hereditary was one hell of a terrifying and disturbing horror film. The director of that movie, Ari Aster, has teamed up with A24 for a new horror movie and we’ve now learned that it will be released in the summer of 2019.

The untitled horror movie is said to tell the story about a vacation that goes horribly and violently wrong. The movie stars Jack Reynor (Kin) and Florence Pugh (Lady Macbeth) as “a couple that travels to Sweden to visit their friend’s rural hometown for its fabled mid-summer festival. What begins as an idyllic retreat quickly devolves into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult.”

I imagine that the movie will at least be as disturbing as Hereditary. But who knows, maybe Aster will take it to an even more nightmarish level of insanity. When previously talking about the film to THR,

'Jessica Forever': Film Review | Tiff 2018
Imagine an installment of Divergent or The Maze Runner directed by two budding French auteurs with a penchant for hyper-stylized violence and minimalist plotting, and you'll get an idea of what's in store with the dystopian whatchamacallit Jessica Forever.

Marking the feature debut of Caroline Poggi and Jonathan Vinel, whose shorts (As Long as Shotguns Remain, After School Knife Fight) have scooped up much renown — and a Golden Bear — on the fest circuit, this weird and sometimes wild genre-bender tends to overstay its welcome while delivering a few impressively low-key thrills.

16 Ya Franchises That Flopped (And 5 We’ll Never Get To See)

When the original Harry Potter series concluded in 2011, studios were scrambling to find the next big hit. The Twilight Saga and The Hunger Games stuck around to pick up the coattails for a few years, but producers were reading anything they could get their hands on in a desperate plea to dethrone the boy wizard's place at the top of the young adult box office.

Of course, Warner Bros. didn't have to look too far.

Rather than staying up all night reading dystopian novels and teen romances, the studio has simply invented a prequel to J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World to continue the money-making machine indefinitely.

Meanwhile, other producers are scrambling to launch the next must-see franchise. This tactic occasionally produces some hits (like The Maze Runner trilogy or even the recent revitalized Series of Unfortunate Events for Netflix).

However, most of the time, the first and maybe second entry

Infinity War’s Robert Downey Jr. Pays Tribute To The Fans After Bagging Teen Choice Award

“Without you, I’m nothing. With you, I’m but a small, yet integral part of the cinematic universe known as Marvel.”

That’s Robert Downey Jr. there raising a glass to the comic book community after bagging an award/surfboard (!) during last night’s Teen Choice Awards.

The Avengers: Infinity War actor and all-around McU mainstay saw off competition from Chris Evans (Infinity War), Dylan O’Brien (The Maze Runner), Henry Cavill (Justice League), John Boyega (The Last Jedi) and Spider-Man himself, Tom Holland, which is really an achievement in and of itself given Holland’s loyal following.

Not that anyone can say Robert Downey Jr. isn’t deserving of such an accolade; for nigh on 10 years, he’s played the part of Tony Stark/Iron Man and helped launch a full-blown cinematic universe for Marvel. He’s the beating (mechanical) heart of the McU, which only leaves us

'Hereditary' Director Casts Jack Reynor and Florence Pugh in Next Horror Movie; Here's Everything We Know

Ari Aster, the first-time writer/director of Hereditary, is setting up his sophomore effort. Reportedly, the currently untitled feature will again be distributed by A24 (Hereditary has become their top-grossing release).  According to Collider, the movie has just cast its leads with Jack Reynor (Macbeth) and Florence Pugh (Lady Macbeth) and is now filming in Budapest. The Maze Runner's Will Poulter, who also recently co-starred with Reynor in Detroit, will play another main character.  When Aster spoke to Fandango's Erik Davis earlier this year, he called the movie Midsommer, which made it sound like a properly Ingmar Bergman-inspired, Swedish-set production. "The next film I'm making is a horror film, and I'm making it with A24," he...
