With 'Frozen' still tearing up the box office months after release, the demand for fantastical stories revolving around princesses are at an all-time high ... and Disney isn't the only one looking for a slice of the action. Sofia Coppola of 'Lost in Translation' and 'The Bling Ring' fame is looking to bring Hans Christian Anderson's 'The Little Mermaid' to the big screen for Universal, which is as interesting a combination of talent and subject matter that we've ever seen.
Young-adult entertainment goes through phases and we're currently waist deep in the "sci-fi dystopian" phase, where 'The Hunger Games' is the obvious high watermark. Although 'Divergent' will make a run at the throne in a few weeks, 'The Maze Runner' is taking aim at Katniss and company later this year, and the new poster looks strategically designed to tap into your love of that franchise.
If the goal for 'Need For Speed' was to replicate the success of the 'Fast and Furious' films, then the film's opening weekend is not promising. Opening in third place, the video game adaptation was overtaken by two of last week's releases, making this potential franchise D.O.A.
We were sold on 'Captain America 2' before the new featurette arrived and got us pumped to see Anthony Mackie's Sam Wilson, aka The Falcon, in action. Despite being used in the trailers and getting a character poster or two, we had yet to fully understand what purpose he would serve in the film ... until now.
On paper, 'Pan' sounds like the kind of movie you'd have to drag us to kicking and screaming, but since the production keeps on adding talented people like Rooney Mara to the cast, it's getting more and more difficult to ignore.
The West Memphis Three made national headlines and found itself the subject of two documentaries -- 'Paradise Lost' and 'West of Memphis' -- but now the tragically true-to-life story has been brought to life with the debut of the new 'Devil's Knot' trailer.
'Macbeth' is one of William Shakespeare's greatest plays and one of the most inherently cinematic stories ever written. That's why it's been made into a movie multiple times before. That's why a version starring Michael Fassbender is currently in the works. But this is a first: Sean Bean is attached to lead an adaptation of the infamous "Scottish play" for actor-turned-director Vincent Regan ... but only if the project reaches its Kickstarter goal.
After seven years of waiting, no one knew if a sequel to '300' would do the business of its predecessor. And now we have a definitive answer: yes. '300: Rise of an Empire' effortlessly took the number one spot at the box office, proving that America still loves shirtless Greeks murdering each other in slow motion.
With Lena Dunham hosting the show, there was no way 'SNL' wasn't going to do some kind of 'Girls' parody. And with the recent release of 'Son of God' and the impending arrival of 'Noah,' there was no way the show wasn't going to take a shot at the recent biblical movie revival. So here we are, with a hilarious fake trailer for 'Girl,' which simultaneously skewers the story of Adam and Even and your average episode of HBO's 'Girls.'
The world is a little more terrifying than usual these days. With Russian forces occupying Ukraine's Crimean peninsula, the internet has already started throwing around references to World War III. Thankfully, 'SNL' is here to take something that has us terrified and make us laugh instead. The show's solution? Bring in Liam Neeson.
'Frank' is a movie that has the audacity to cast a known face like Michael Fassbender in the lead role and then hide him in a giant, silly-looking fake head for the entire running time. In other words, it's our kind of weird. The film was a big hit at the Sundance Film Festival -- where we gave it a sparkling review -- and with the first 'Frank' trailer, you can see why. This movie looks crazy and, more importantly, crazy good.
'The Last of Us' was one of the most critically and financially successful video games released in 2013, with many gamers declaring it to be one of the best games ever released in lifespan of the PlayStation 3. So it's not surprising that a movie version is officially in the works. (That sound you just heard is gamers all over the world collectively wincing because Hollywood has a habit of screwing up even the most surefire video game adaptations.)
