When a movie underperforms at the box office, it's natural for people to start trying to discover the root of what went wrong. Typically fingers can be pointed at a director or the screenplay or the studio, but sometimes it's more specific things.

What I love about the clip is the moment where Ruffalo pretends that he’s going to Hulk out Not the kid’s reaction (which is equally priceless). Just the sight of Ruffalo beefing himself up.
Putting the trailer in only nine theaters makes sense if you want to build massive buzz. Fans who live far away from those theaters will be clamoring for a first-look glance at the Force Awakens trailer. But in today’s tech age, a camcorder, iPhone version of this trailer will arrive online roughly 20 seconds after the first trailer finishes…
Last week, I sat down with Sam Claflin, who won our hearts in Catching Fire, and now breaks them in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1. It turns out, even though Finnick gets his big moment of scorning the Capitol with his carefully collected secrets, there was something the filmmakers cut out of his Part 1 plot.
Despite the fact that the actor has gone on to be in some incredible dramas – earning an Oscar for his dizzying work in David O.

Thanks to the magic of the internet, the answer to that rather random question has been uncovered.

After the gigantic success of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 at the box office this weekend, it’s going to be tough for any film to be seen as big competition. Still, that’s not stopping two new releases from battling Katniss and friends in its week two, as on Friday we’re getting more horrible bosses and some strange African penguins.
