Maze Runner Sequel The Death Cure movie

One of the trends that I almost included in my list of 9 current movie and television trends I hate is when Hollywood decides to split the last book in a series of film adaptations in two (or in the case of The Hobbit, in three). Sure, sometimes a book is huge, like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and you would think that the only way to bring the story to the screen is to allow enough time so that its not hacked to its core. But often its more of a money grab from Hollywood (remember, its the show BUSINESS — why have one successful movie when you can squeeze it into two?), and even the case of long books (like Hallows) they end up feeling like half a story and the result is less satisfying than a movie with a full story arc.

Well Wes Ball is currently adapting The Maze Runner book series into movies, and the first film was very successful (over $200 million worldwide) and warrants a follow up. The Scorch Trials will hit theaters on September 18th 2015, with plans to hopefully complete the young-adult post-apocalyptic science fiction trilogy of books by James Dashner. Now director Wes Ball has come out publicly saying he isn’t planning to split the third book into two films. Find out the reason why The Death Cure movie adaptation will remain one film, after the jump.

Hunger Games Mockingjay part 1 images

It’s impossible to predict the future, but only an idiot would bet against The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 making a crap ton of money this fall. The first two Hunger Games movies made enough money to turn star Jennifer Lawrence into the Guinness world record holder as the highest-grossing action heroine of all time, and the third looks on track to be just as big if not bigger.

Especially since Lionsgate is not holding back on the marketing. Hot on the heels of an epic new trailer, we have several high-res stills, featuring Katniss, Gale (Liam Hemsworth), and more. See the new Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 images after the jump.
