Ben Affleck has been cast to play Bruce Wayne/Batman and he should have a significant role in the now-filming “Batman Vs Superman,” while Gal Gadot will play Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman, who is rumored to have a smallerRead More
“Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” fans, rejoice! Another adventure with Carmen, Tibby, Lena and Bridget is coming to the big screen, as it was announced today that the filmmakers behind the first two films based on the bestselling Ann Brashares novels are now in development on a third movie. It had been thought that the second film ended on a note that allowed the characters to be retired from the big screen, despite there being several more books in the novel series to adapt from, but the third one shouldRead More
The internet is abuzz today that the post-credits scene of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” doesn’t feature the usual – tease of Andrew Garfield’s future or even the future of Dane DeHaan’s Goblin and his fellow “Sinister Six,” but rather, for unexplained reasons, the mutants of “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” According to various reports of people who have already seen the film in places like the UK, Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique and Lucas Till’s Havok appear at the very tail end of the newest “Spider-Man,” though apparently without giving away anyRead More
In an interview with W Magazine, actress Rosamund Pike shared her story of how she landed the coveted role of Amy in David Fincher‘s “Gone Girl”, one of our most anticipated films of the year. When she heard about Gone Girl, last summer, she was filming a comedy in a remote part of the Scottish Highlands. Fincher suggested that they get to know each other via Skype, and Pike had to join a gym near Glasgow just to secure an Internet connection. She had not been given the script butRead More

Shailene Woodley in "Divergent"
At this point it’s not a surprise anymore but today it’s been made official: The final installment of the Shailene Woodley-led “Divergent” franchise, titled “Allegiant,” will be split into two films, following in the footsteps of “Harry Potter,” “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games.” The first film opened on March 24th and promptly broke the YA franchise curse suffered by so many other hopefuls in the past couple of years, taking in $55 million its opening weekend and hitting $100 million less than three weeks in. The first sequel, “Insurgent,” wasRead More
Forget May 14th, it appears JJ Abrams is even sneakier than we originally thought, and “Star Wars: Episode VII” is actually already filming, according to Disney chief Alan Horn. Horn revealed the surprising new info during an interview in front of students at the Loyola Marymount School of Film and Television in Los Angeles over the weekend. Additionally, casting on the film – which we still have zero official confirmation on – is just about done too: “We have a lot of them, it’s not completely done yet,” says Horn.Read More
Publicity is kicking up on Josh Boone’s adaptation of John Green’s massively popular YA novel “The Fault in Our Stars,” and they are taking it to – who else? – the fans. The film’s official Tumblr has launched “Demand Our Stars,” which asks fans to vote on where to bring the film’s stars – Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort and Nat Wolff – and Green himself on their national publicity tour. It’s not exactly a new concept, as “Twilight” kicked off the “mall tour” fad amongst YA adaptations, and every adaptationRead More
I don’t think I’m the only one who fell surprisingly hard for the relationship between Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) presented in “The Avengers,” though it was admittedly a very small part of the film that had much bigger issues to deal with. Now, Marvel boss Kevin Feige is promising that both characters will have larger roles in “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” but does that mean more development in that particular partnership? He doesn’t exactly clarify. Feige tells the LA Times that more of the BlackRead More
