Divergent Featurette Shows Off Theo James' Fight Skills, Tris 'Fights Back' In New TV Spot
Advance tickets for Divergent are now on sale, and to mark the occasion, Summit has released a new featurette, which focuses on Theo James character Four. Known to some for TV series Bedlam and Golden Boy, or for his brief but memorable role in an episode of Downton Abbey, James appears to be up for some stunts, particularly as it relates to fight scenes.
Barkhad Abdi Is An Academy Award Nominee And He Has No Money At All
People often think fame and money are directly linked. They’re not. High end actors whose names appear in big letters on movie posters make an outlandish money. Those who play supporting roles can earn nice little paychecks, but it can be years between these parts.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2: What We Know So Far
Sony’s plan is to have a new Spider-Man movie in theaters every year. But we have to start with Webb’s Amazing Spider-Man 2, first, as it opens in a few weeks on May 2. What do we know about the sequel, so far? Quite a lot, actually.
Inception Is Getting Its Own Insanely Complicated Board Game
A strong case could be made that Inception is the single most complicated big budget movie ever released. I’ve seen it about a dozen times, read complicated write-ups and talked extensively with others, and I’m still not sure I understand everything that happened. It’s a ludicrously in-depth and complicated logic puzzle.
Divergent Author Veronica Roth Praises The Upcoming Adaptation
Of course, Roth’s no dummy. Had she written about disliking the book, it surely would have robbed her of future sales, since book sales tend to skyrocket after the release of a film. And it’s very possible she signed a non-disclosure agreement with the studio that forced her to keep silent about the actual movie, but both parties agreed a little bit of promotion wouldn’t hurt anyone.
The RoboCop Reboot Might Have Earned Enough To Justify A Sequel
After this weekend, Padilha’s reboot has crossed the $51 million mark, domestically. Here’s a number, though, that will really turn your head. RoboCop has banked $136 million overseas. Which means, globally, the reboot is fast approaching the $200 million mark. That’s sequel money.
March Movie Preview: The Muppets, Noah And Wes Anderson Usher In A Great Month Of Cinema
March is the month where both Hollywood and the indie circuit really kick into high gear, parading out big budget spectacles, quirky comedies, action romps and yes, even a Tyler Perry movie.
10 Movies That Will Contend For Best Picture Next Year
There's a barrage of high-profile projects coming out in the next 10 months that can qualify for the Academy Awards, but which 10 features do we feel are fighting fit for Oscar?
Zack Snyder Says Batman Vs. Superman Won't Be As Tied To The Comic Book Mythology
It's worth noting that while Christopher Nolan's take on Batman in The Dark Knight Trilogy was largely original, he still borrowed certain elements from famous comics like Batman: Year One, The Long Halloween, The Killing Joke, Knightfall, and, yes, even The Dark Knight Returns. Hell, even Man of Steel took some inspiration from Superman: Secret Origin.
Oscar Winners Steve McQueen And John Ridley Feuding Over 12 Years A Slave Writing Credit
Rarely do you make a great movie without getting some blood on the streets. Creative types who can make it in Hollywood are usually headstrong enough to believe their vision is superior to another’s, and that results in clashes. Some of those clashes happen behind the scenes of the greatest movies ever made.
Kristen Bell And Santino Fontana Sound Amazing Singing Frozen's 'Love Is An Open Door' Live
Following Idina Menzel's performance of Frozen's now Oscar-winning tune "Let it Go" at last night's Academy Awards, fans of the Disney animated film are likely longing for more live performances from the cast, Disney Animation has delivered, at least a little bit, by releasing another clip from that private Frozen live cabaret from last month.
Spidey Swings Through The City In Two New Amazing Spider-Man 2 Motion Posters
A big part of what's exciting about a live action Spider-Man movie is simply getting to see such a nimble and quick superhero move. While many wonderful artists have brought the character and his movements to life through comics in the past, it's a real thrill to see it happen on the big screen and to see what seem like impossible physics play out.
Captain America Is Under Fire In The Latest Winter Soldier Poster
The costume that Cap is wearing in this poster is now the third design we've seen after both Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers, but it's quite a bit different than those two.
Mark Wahlberg Armed And Dangerous Ahead Of Tuesday's Transformers Trailer
What fresh insanity does Bay have planned for us this time? He’s actually dropping the term “extinction” into his title, which doesn’t bode well. But that could just be a nod to his dino-bots, which have been revealed.
Ralph Fiennes On The Contradictions In His Grand Budapest Hero, And What He Snagged From The Set
Last week, I had the good fortune to sit down with Fiennes to discuss his work in Grand Budapest Hotel, and his inspirations for his portrayal of Gustave H. During our talk, Fiennes admitted he'd spent a great deal of time figuring out the untold backstory of this eccentric concierge. And then he delighted me by breaking into the character right before my very eyes!
