It was announced last September that 'Harry Potter' franchise author J.K. Rowling is working with Warner Bros. on a spinoff titled 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,' and now comes word that the studio will follow in the footsteps of the 'Hobbit' franchise by making the exciting new project into an even more exciting new trilogy, milking every bit of of this magic for what its worth.
In what had become an inevitability at this point with the insanely rising box office numbers, Disney's smash hit animated film 'Frozen' has now become the highest grossing animated film of all time, usurping former crown holder 'Toy Story 3,' which held the title since 2010. And judging by these numbers and the love for the film, it doesn't look like 'Frozen' is going to "Let It Go" so easily.
In case you didn't know by now (or if your mom didn't make it a point to tell you, since it's like, one of the only facts she probably prides herself on knowing about actors), Hugh Jackman has some musical theater chops. Oh, you didn't see 'Les Miserables'? The 'Wolverine' and 'X-Men' star recently took that talent to BBC Radio 1 to perform a cover of the 'Les Mis' song "Who Am I," repurposed with lyrics about his on-screen alter ego, Wolverine, and the results are, well, okay, they're pretty charming.
While we're still a few weeks away from the debut of 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' Sony has premiered another clip from the film, and this one dispenses with all the danger and villainous threats, instead focusing on something a little more lighthearted and fun. Spidey shows off his epic free fall and web-slinging skills in the latest bit of footage, giving us a respite from all the madness -- but don't worry, it's still a lot of action.
A Hobbit in space? Maybe! Dominic Monaghan, known for his role in the 'Lord of the Rings' films and for playing Charlie on the J.J. Abrams-produced hit series 'LOST' has been talking to his old friend about showing up in 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' As a Jedi? He wishes! But he has spoken to the director about a supporting role.
'Scarface' is being remade yet again. The film, which began life on the screen in 1932 as a classic gangster story was remade by Brian De Palma in the 1983 film starring Al Pacino as a Cuban refugee who goes from street dealer to drug kingpin. Universal, which already has a script for the contemporary remake, has found a director: Pablo Larrain, a Chilean director, most recently known for his critically acclaimed 2012 film, 'No.'
Here's one way to get your students to settle down: in Belgium, a group of students who also happen to be big 'Game of Thrones' fans, were acting a bit too rowdy in the classroom, so their teacher had a brilliant idea. If they didn't behave, he was going to start dropping massive 'Game of Thrones' spoilers, including the major deaths of characters one by one until they learned their lesson. Maybe we should take a hint from this guy.
Today marks the 30th anniversary of the day - March 24, 1984 - that 'The Breakfast Club' first met: that would be the day that characters from John Hughes' beloved teen classic were all stuck in detention together. And although at first glance this group of teens had nothing in common, they bonded over the course of that special Saturday, learning that they couldn't be defined by the labels they chose for themselves (or the ones that had been chosen for them) in the world of petty high school politics.
Just last month, Robert Rodriguez revved up his new TV network, El Rey, which features a whole lot of badass programming curated by Rodriguez and his team. This Sunday, March 9, the network will be hosting a pretty sweet double feature of Quentin Tarantino's 'Reservoir Dogs' and Rodriguez's debut film, 'El Mariachi.' To celebrate this awesome night of programming, we have the exclusive debut of El Rey's poster for the event, created by artist Kurt Volk.
The first trailer for indie horror flick 'Afflicted' has arrived, and before you dismiss this new found-footage-style film as yet another gimmick, you should give the trailer a chance. The film, which played at Fantastic Fest 2013 in Austin last year, was praised for its unique spin on the genre, with many critics comparing it to Josh Trank's 'Chronicle,' but with a surprise twist of its own.
