MTV Movie Awards Bet Big On American Hustle, Wolf Of Wall Street
And because the MTV Movie Awards are a show for the people, the smash-comedy hit We’re the Millers racked up 6 nominations, including Best Shirtless Performance for Jennifer Aniston. Who says this isn’t the Golden Age of Cinema?
The 24 Hour Action Sequel Marathon
This week’s marathon is twenty four (and a half!) straight hours of ass-kicking repeat performances. Part one was great, but wait until you see the follow-up! There are kicks and punches, car chases and gunfights, all in this 24 hour salute to following a tough opening act.
Two Oscar Voters Admit They Didn't Watch 12 Years A Slave, Voted For It Anyway
Personally, I think that’s disgusting. And I don’t want to put words in McQueen’s mouth, but I’m fairly confident he’d reject the votes of an Academy member who didn’t even bother to WATCH his film before casting a ballot.
The Simpsons, LEGO And More Spoof Ellen's Oscar Selfie
While many have decried The Simpsons for dated storylines hampered by the amount of time it takes between writing an episode and having it air, no one can say they were late to the game parodying the star-studded Oscar selfie that host Ellen DeGeneres took at Sunday’s Oscars ceremony - which will go down in short-attention-span history as the Tweet that temporarily broke Twitter.
Divergent Drives A Stake In Twilight's First Day Advance Ticket Sales On Fandango
If this kind of sell-out behavior continues over the next couple of weeks prior to its March 21 premiere, there is indeed a good chance the lofty predictions of a $65 million opening weekend will come true. Plus, it could become one of Fandango’s biggest presales in the company’s history. Regardless of my disinterest in Divergent, I’m perfectly happy with anything knocking Twilight’s successes down a couple of notches.
RoboCop Gets Another Remake... This One Created By Fans
The crowd-sourced film was created by a mix of 50 amateur and professional filmmakers from Los Angeles and New York who agreed to split the 1987 action classic into parts to be remade. Rather than being an exact shot-for-shot remake, it is instead the various interpretations of the movie in the hands of the different teams.
First 'Annie' Trailer Gives A Modern Update To The Classic Musical
Directed by Will Gluck, the director of Easy A and Friends With Benefits, the new take on the classic Broadway musical stars Quvenzhane Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) as Annie, a young orphan girl living in a foster home in New York City.
Martin Scorsese Gets A Star Trek Twist In New Worf Of Wall Street Parody Trailer
It goes without saying that one of the best trailers released last year was the first theatrical preview for Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street. Thumping to the beat of "Black Skinhead" by Kanye West and showing great actors like Leonardo DiCaprio partying hard and living incredibly excessive lifestyles, the trailer was filled with an insane, raw energy that instantly made anyone who watched it want to see the movie.

Latest Captain America 2 Character Poster Has The Winter Soldier Looking Menacing
Comic book fans are very familiar with the Winter Soldier storyline, as its one of the most famous arcs in Captain America comics, but I'm very curious as to how they will treat the character in the film as a result. Will the Winter Soldier's real identity be kept as a third act reveal, or will it be something that we know about from the very start of the story?
Wait, Divergent Might Make How Much Its Opening Weekend?
The Internet has no idea what to think about Divergent. On some days in some optimistic corners of cyberspace, it’s painted as the next coming of The Hunger Games, an extremely exciting juggernaut that will inspire all the popular 2014 Halloween costumes and net hundreds of millions in profits.
Steven Spielberg Is Thinking About Remaking West Side Story For Fox
We all know the Hollywood Well of Original Ideas is only as full as the talent the industry employs, which is one of the reasons why the much less profit-centered independent side of cinema will always generate more creativity. But this knowledge doesn’t make the constant string of remakes any easier, and it’s reaching a fever pitch now that Fox is wiping the dust off of West Side Story.
