BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
This fall Liam Hemsworth is set to hit theaters with the guaranteed blockbuster The Hunger Game: Mockingjay - Part 1. But he's already looking past the Hunger Games series with an eye to his homeland and an enchanting drama called The Dressmaker.
For the last couple years, a big part of the Jimmy Kimmel Live post-Oscar show has been what's called Movie: The Movie - a fake extended trailer for what is said to be the biggest blockbuster of all time. The late night host has managed to get some big names to join him in the madness in the past and this year is definitely no different.
In a battle between Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman, does a kid like Liam Hemsworth even stand a chance? It'll be tough, but don't underestimate the up-and-comer best known as Gale in The Hunger Games-- in Paranoia he plays a tech superstar whose wits are tested when he gets caught up in the bitter rivalry between Ford and Oldman's characters, the world's two most powerful tech billionaires
Empire State, Hemsworth plays a common schmo Chris Potamitis, who gives up on his dream of becoming a cop and takes a job at an armored car company. But when his partner gets killed in a heist gone wrong, he begins to consider moving to the other side of the law for a major payout. As he and his childhood pal (Angarano) plan the robbery of a lifetime, Potamitis is stalked by a brawny cop who smells trouble (Johnson).
Though this is Shakman’s first time out as a feature director, he has a long resume of TV work, including It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia and Psych, while fellow feature newcomer Patino also has TV experience, writing for both Sons of Anarchy and the short-lived Prime Suspect.
At first glance, Paranoia's new trailer seems to fall into the trap of trying to fit too much of the movie's assets into two minutes and thirty seconds, which leads it to succeed in flashiness and showing off its talented cast, but falls short in breaking down the plot of the movie concisely enough...
In Aurora Rising Hemsworth will play a surfer-turned-military pilot whose first combat mission proves his worth. He gets recruited to an elite team who are testing the next generation of aircraft. An international conflict then breaks out, and something tells me this elite team will get involved.
Named for its main character Chris "The Raven" Black, the six-minute short is set in a dystopian future where Los Angeles is ruled by an oppressive regime that's relentlessly seeking to destroy our hero because he possesses an extraordinary power.
I've been so into this ongoing series of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire portraits. So into them! Which is helpful, because they've been debuting two a day for the last week, which involves a lot of analyzing costume choices and figuring out the symbolism of the white rose held by the tributes. But now they've gone and managed to screw it all up, by including rebellious dreamboat in the series supposedly sponsored by the Capitol. Check out this blasphemy below:
In Love and Honor, Hemsworth stars as a Mickey Wright, a soldier committed to fight in the Vietnam War. But when his best friend opts to go AWOL to win back the girl he loves, the loyal Mickey joins him for an unforgettable trip that not only introduces him to sassy hippie Candace (Teresa Palmer), but also to a whole political movement he's absorbed and perplexed by. Take a first look at Love and Honor with its first trailer
While her name may not strike a bell, chances are you have seen Amber Heard mixing it up with some of Hollywood's biggest leading men…though admittedly in some less than prestigious films. Just last year, she co-starred with Nicolas Cage in Drive Angry and Johnny Depp in The Rum Diary
Paranoia follows a war between rival telecom companies. Robert Luketic (The Ugly Truth, Killers) is on board to direct, and Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman are reportedly circling roles.
Paranoia isn't the only thing Luketic has in the works. He is currently in pre-production on Brilliant, a diamond heist film that is set to star Gerard Butler (with whom Luketic worked with on The Ugly Truth). It seems as though the filmmaker is actively moving away from the comedy genre into something more serious.
Many Hunger Games fans—myself included—have insisted that a major element that sets the series apart from other bestselling YA series like Harry Potter and Twilight is the political allegory at the core of the books. Collins' attack on reality television also feeds into this, as the Capital relishes in the slaying of teens like its American Idol, while the rest of what remains of the United States is forced to witness the government mandated slaughter of their children and neighbors.
Ross will accompany Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth in Los Angeles for the start of the tour, which will make stops in Atlanta, Minneapolis, Chicago, Phoenix, Miami, Dallas and more. The Twilight films managed a similar feat, taking over shopping malls in major U.S. cities for talent meet-and-greets and fan signings. Right off the bat, I give credit to Lawrence, who looks to be making appearances at as many of the city stops as possible.
