Tue, 09/16/2014 - 01:50

  The book is always better. You have heard it before. You may have even said it. To be fair, we have had far too many reasons.

Watch: 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1' Trailer Turns Katniss into a Weapon

Tue, 09/16/2014 - 01:00

So far the buildup toward The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 1 has been one of our favorite movie campaigns of the year. The marketing folks have done some creepy, subtle and even subversive things with their poster art so far, and the teaser trailers have all done a restrained job of, well, teasing. With the movie due in just about three months (tickets go on sale this October 29!), Lionsgate has decided to move away from teasing in order to show something more substantial. And fans...

Watch: Keanu Reeves Is the Craziest Dog Owner Ever in New 'John Wick' Trailer

Tue, 09/16/2014 - 00:53

Movies about hit men, gangsters or bank robbers coming out of retirement for one last hurrah are a dime a dozen.

Sometimes it's because someone is trying to find them (A History of Violence), other times they're defending an innocent person (The Equalizer). The upcoming John Wick, however, may take...

Mon, 09/15/2014 - 23:25

Some actors and actresses would rather hide from their early career choices, chalking it up to inexperience and lack of guidance, but then you have a guy like Chris Pratt who embraces his own retro hilarity by continually posting old pics of himself on Twitter. Soon after Guardians of the Galaxy came out, Pratt posted a pic of the Scooby Doo van he lived out of before moving to Los Angeles, and then more recently he dug up his first head shot...which, as you'll see below, is pretty amazing....

A Good Day on the 'Very Bad Day' Set

Fri, 09/12/2014 - 00:05

It's story time at Vroman's Bookstore in Pasadena, California, and almost immediately I spot the day's celebrity reader in the distance… Dick Van Dyke.  In L.A., it wouldn't necessarily be that surprising to have a celebrity reading at a local bookstore, but today's reading is anything but normal since we're on the set of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, the movie based on Judith Viorst’s classic children’s book.

She recently directed her own movie called Carver, which is a throwback to the slasher films of the 1980s. This is Emily.   The whole project started when she was only 13. DiPrimio is reminiscent of another impressive young...
