Following the making of The Divergent Series: Insurgent and The Divergent Series: Allegiant, director Robert Schwentke decided against returning for the final installment, The Divergent Series: Ascendant. But the fourth film in the series is still scheduled to open next summer, and the studio may have found a replacement who can meet that date.
Lee Toland Krieger (The Age of Adeline) may close out the franchise. Learn more about the project and Krieger’s involvement below.

Richard Gere is one of those movies stars who’s probably slightly undervalued as an actor because of his stardom. But for the past decade, aside from the occasional hokey romance or two, he’s been doing some of his most thoughtful work as a performer. He’s taken on smaller and more intimate projects, frequently playing some wonderfully unlikable and deeply human characters (see The Hoax or The Hunting Party, if you haven’t already). His next film, The Benefactor, premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival this year, and it was met with mostly positive reviews.
After the jump, watch the trailer for The Benefactor.

Writer/director John Michael McDonagh is following up Cavalry with a new movie called War on Everyone, featuring Michael Peña and Alexander Skarsgård in the lead roles. They play “two corrupt cops in New Mexico who set out to blackmail and frame every criminal unfortunate enough to cross their path.” Now the first image is out for the film, and while McDonagh’s name should be enough to raise your interest, seeing Skarsgård flip us the bird in this War on Everyone image might help.

The dystopian YA trend is still going strong in 2015, with The Divergent Series: Insurgent the first one out of the gate. Shailene Woodley once again plays Tris, a special snowflake with more than one personality trait. That makes her a threat to the corrupt system, run by Jeanine (Kate Winslet).
Joining her once more are Theo James as handsome love interest Four, Miles Teller as mean kid Peter, and Ansel Elgort as Tris’ skeptical brother. Octavia Spencer and Naomi Watts join the cast. Watch The Divergent Series Insurgent final trailer after the jump.

This new Insurgent trailer — possibly the last before the film opens at the end of March — has a lot of new footage, and condenses the sales pitch for the film down to one minute. (My favorite edits!) We see some of the strife that consumes Tris (Shailene Woodley) and a bunch of big effects shots that dress up the proceedings. We also get shots of a lot of the rest of the cast, including Tris’ beau Theo James, and Miles Teller, Kate Winslet, and Octavia Spencer. Read More »
