Chloë Grace Moretz keeps busy. Maybe not Samuel L. Jackson busy, but the 19-year-old actress is seen pretty often on the big screen. This year, she starred in Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising and The Fifth Wave, and she has potentially two other movies coming out before 2016 wraps up. As of this moment, though, Moretz isn’t attached to any future projects, including Universal’s live-action reimagining of The Little Mermaid. The actress isn’t taking a long hiatus from acting, but she is stepping back to reevaluate her choices.
Below, find out why Moretz dropped out of the live-action Little Mermaid movie.

Next month brings an epic battle in the form of Captain America: Civil War, but a few weeks later, an even crazier face-off will take place, and it’s going to have a lot more dildos. Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising has Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne facing yet another college nightmare, as a wild sorority moves in next door just when they are about to finalize a deal on selling their house.
Of course, they call in Zac Efron to try to take them down, but he just might not be enough. That’s when they decide to call in some more parents to see if they can wrangle in their kids. One of those parents just happens to be LL Cool J, and he finds a few things that belong to his daughter that he would have been better off not knowing about. See what I mean in the new Neighbors 2 red band trailer, which is obviously NSFW. Read More »

If aliens were going to invade Earth, you could do worse than pin your hopes on Chloë Grace Moretz. The former Hit-Girl leads The 5th Wave as Cassie, a teen girl trying to survive in a world that’s been torn apart by alien attacks — four waves of them, in fact, with a fifth one on the way. When her brother is taken (Zackary Arthur) is taken away, she sets out to save him.
The 5th Wave is, like all studio movies starring actors in their late teens to early 20s seem to be these days, adapted from a bestselling YA trilogy, this time by Rick Yancey. Nick Robinson stars as Cassie’s classmate Ben, and Alex Roe is a handsome stranger named Evan. Watch The 5th Wave trailer after the jump. Read More »

Thirty-five million dollars. That’s all that separates the worldwide grosses of the first Kick-Ass, and its sequel, Kick-Ass 2. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but when neither gross is over $100 million, and each cost about $30 million to make, it’s a big percentage. Because of that, plans to continue the franchise either with a Kick-Ass 3 or Hit Girl spin-off have pretty much stalled. Fans still talk about the ideas, though, and so do the filmmakers.
Case in point: Kick-Ass director and sequel producer Matthew Vaughn. In a new interview, he suggests he’d like to do a Kick-Ass prequel, centering on Hit Girl and Big Daddy, as a palate cleanser leading to Kick-Ass 3. Sounds awesome right? Well series co-creator Mark Millar is less optimistic about those movies actually happening. Check out the Vaughn and Miller Kick-Ass prequel and sequel quotes below. Read More »
Bryan Singer once again has the unenviable task of casting two of Marvel’s most iconic X-Men.

But now that the series is continuing on with the X-Men: First Class versions of the characters in X-Men Apocalypse, he has to cast those two crucial roles again.
One report says three actors and three actresses are on Singer’s short list for each role. Among them? Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld. Read more about the X-Men Apocalypse Cyclops and Jean Grey casting below. Read More »
