Hunger Games MockingJay part 1 review

Note: This review was original published on November 10. We’ve bumped it up now that the film is in theaters. 

It’s a shame The Hunger Games series gets filed into the “young adult” category. Sure, there’s some dystopian young romance in there, but with each subsequent film, the series proves it is about much more than unattainable love with sporadic action. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 takes the series to its furthest point from YA stereotypes yet.

However, what’s most interesting about this latest installment — the first part of a two-part finale — is just how different it is from the rest of the franchise. Is that a good thing? Below, read why The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 feels like a different franchise. Read More »

weird Jurassic World teaser

This promo video for Jurassic World is so odd that we thought it was a fake. Despite being hosted on the Universal Spain account, this short tease for the new film — labeled “something big is coming” — has none of the hallmarks of a legit promotion. There’s no studio logo, no URL for the official website that recently launched, and no movie title. Basically, it looks like a fan-made video that just happens to be hosted on an official studio account. Have a look at this low-key, weird Jurassic World teaser below.

Janis Joplin Biopic Director

Dallas Buyer’s Club was a big film at the end of 2013. This year, Wild, the new film from its director Jean-Marc Vallee, is said to be a powerful movie as well, thanks in part to a great performance from Reese Witherspoon. Now Vallee is setting up to make a new film, and this one will potentially combine major factors from his last two movies: it’ll be a story based in truth, anchored by a significant female performance. Vallee is in talks to be the Janis Joplin biopic director; he’ll direct Amy Adams as Joplin in a film about the late singer’s life. Read More »

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

It’s not often that Muggles get bragging rights over wizards, but today is one of those rare days. Universal Orlando has just announced that The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is now serving hot butterbeer, in addition to their regular offerings of cold and frozen butterbeer.

In contrast, the wizarding world as chronicled in J.K. Rowling‘s original books only offered butterbeer in two forms, cold and hot. Take that, wizards. Hit the jump for details on exactly where to get hot butterbeer.  Read More »
