After a trailer and Super Bowl spot, it’s pretty fair to say fans are lukewarm on Alan Taylor‘s Terminator Genisys. We’re intrigued by the casting and some of the ideas teased in these spots, but the ultimate execution is a huge question mark.

Second, an Arnold Schwarzenegger fansite posted two Terminator Genisys script reviews, both of which are positive. They’re spoiler free too, so no worries there, and you can read excerpts below. Read More »

Katniss is going big for her final blowout. Lionsgate has announced that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 will be released this fall in IMAX and IMAX 3D, as well as plain old normal-sized-screen 2D.
That makes The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 the first Hunger Games film to open in 3D in the U.S. (Mockingjay, Part 1 played in 3D in China.) The news also brings the franchise back to the IMAX format. The Hunger Games and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire both hit the jumbo screens, but IMAX opted to show Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar over The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 last year.
