As you’ve no doubt heard by now, Sony’s on the hunt for a new Spider-Man to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And since the last round of Spider-Man casting was just a few years ago, some fans have wondered if some of the guys who didn’t make the cut the last time around could have better luck this time.
Now a couple of them have gone on the record to respond. Josh Hutcherson says “of course” he’d consider playing Spidey, if only anyone would ask him, while Donald Glover plays coy about his odds. Read the Spider-Man Donald Glover and Josh Hutcherson comments after the jump. Read More »
Fans of the biggest film of 2014, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, are having a good day. The massive hit sequel is now available on digital HD ahead of its Blu-ray/On Demand debut, which comes on March 6. To make fans aware of the digital release, Lionsgate has put two of the film’s deleted scenes online.
The first is a specific side of the film we didn’t get in the theatrical cut. It’s a scene between President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) that teases the crucial, brutal relationship between the two, which will pay off in Part 2. The second is a funny scene with Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) getting dolled up by Effie (Elizabeth Banks). See the Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 deleted scenes below. Read More »

As you’ve no doubt heard by now, Spider-Man is coming to the MCU. But the powers that be aren’t simply merging Sony’s existing Spider-Man franchise with the Marvel movies — no, this is going to be a whole new Spider-Man, which means the webslinging role is up for grabs again.
Marvel and Sony have yet to reveal whom they want to put on the Spidey mask, but while they mull it over we’ve got some ideas for them. After the jump, run down our new Spider-Man casting wishlist. Read More »
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 »
It’s happened to all of us: you head south to surf, meet the person of your dreams, and then discover that their “Uncle Pablo” is in fact notorious cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar. In the film Escobar: Paradise Lost, John Hutchinson is the surfer, Claudia Traisac is Maria, the girl he falls for, and Benicio Del Toro is Pablo Escobar. Through the three of them we see Escobar’s criminal activities, but also the way in which he was held up as a Colombian folk hero for his donations back to the community. See the new Escobar trailer below. Read More »
In Escobar: Paradise Lost, Benicio del Toro plays drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, delivering a performance that is already drawing strong praise after the film’s Telluride debut. But this isn’t just another “rise and fall” story focusing on a famous outlaw. The film, directed by Andrea Di Stefano, follows a college student (Josh Hutcherson), who falls for a local girl while in Colombia, only to discover that her uncle is an internationally-infamous drug lord. Check out the Escobar: Paradise Lost international trailer below. Read More »
If you were hoping for more family friendly Dwayne Johnson action movies, today is your lucky day. New Line Cinema has hired writers to do not one, but two sequels in the Journey to the Center of the Earth franchise, each of which will be headlined by Johnson. Chad and Carey Hayes, who co-wrote The Conjuring, have been brought on to write Journey 3 and Journey 4, sequels to the 2008 film Journey to the Center of the Earth and its 2012 follow-up Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.

There are several Pablo Escobar projects in the works at the moment, including a movie from Brad Furman and a TV show from Netflix. But the first one out of the gate is the one that’s not really a Pablo Escobar project per se.
Directed by Andrea Di Stefano, Paradise Lost centers on a young American surfer named Nick (Josh Hutcherson) who falls for a Colombian woman named Maria (Claudia Traisac). Their romantic idyll falls apart when she introduces him to her uncle, Pablo Escobar (Benecio del Toro). The first Paradise Lost teaser has just dropped, and you can watch it after the jump.

The Lionsgate marketing team continues to knock it out of the park with the first The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 teaser. Rather than dishing out the usual 20-second melange of explosions and one-liners, they’ve delivered a beautifully creepy piece of Capitol propaganda, read by President Snow (Donald Sutherland) himself.
At first, the video seems innocuous enough, with Snow extolling the virtues of peace and unity and whatnot. Then the camera pulls back to reveal his new friend, and… well, see for yourself. Hit the jump for the full The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 teaser.
