Warner Bros.
It's being touted as the “definitive chapter” in the ‘Hobbit’ trilogy, and it promises to be the most epic conclusion, culminating in a huge, 45-minute battle sequence. But it's also been quite a journey, with three ‘Lord of the Rings’ films and now ending with the third ‘Hobbit’ film. For this farewell, ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ will get an appropriately emotional goodbye with an end credits song performed by Billy Boyd, who played Pippin in all three ‘Lord of the Rings’ films. And now you can listen to the end credits song in full before the film hits theaters.

Ever since the earliest screenings of Christopher Nolan's ‘Interstellar,’ there have been criticisms about the film's sound mix—that the dialogue is difficult to understand at times, often overtaken by the sound effects and score. Audiences and critics alike have pondered whether this was a filmmaking error, or a matter of movie theaters not playing the sound correctly, but now Nolan himself has finally spoken up to clarify that the sound is playing as intended, calling the final product “adventurous and creative.”

Just last month when Marvel announced ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ there was an additional little nugget of news/rumor tucked into that surprising reveal: Marvel was eyeing ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ directors Joe and Anthony Russo to helm ‘Avengers: Infinity War.’ That's in addition to their responsibilities directing ‘Civil War.’ As it turns out, the rumors are true, and the Russo brothers are indeed the frontrunners to direct the two-part ‘Infinity War,’ which would also confirm what we've known for some time: Joss Whedon won't be back.

‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1’ Releases an Art Poster Worthy of Your Wall

by Britt Hayes November 15, 2014 12:27 PM
The latest poster for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1’ is probably the coolest little bit of imagery we've seen for the film since much, much earlier in the marketing. We're thinking way back to those first all-white teasers with President Snow, Peeta, and Joanna, which were very off-putting and weird. There was also that exceedingly stylish poster campaign featuring heroes of the districts, which was unsettling in all its glossiness. Most of the posters and trailers we've seen since have been what we'd expect from a promotional campaign, so it's always nice to see something a little different.

Watch Johnny Depp’s Weird, Drunken Speech at the Hollywood Film Awards

by Britt Hayes November 15, 2014 11:51 AM
So this is why we don't see Johnny Depp on stage very often (ever?) at awards shows. Last night at the Hollywood Film Awards, Depp introduced the documentary ‘Supermensch,’ about legendary talent manager Shep Gordon, and immediately made it pretty clear that he was not sober-minded. “That's the weirdest microphone I've ever seen in my life,” he slurs—except, you know, it's just a regular microphone.

20th Century Fox
‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ is hitting Blu-ray soon, and we've been hearing little teases about the upcoming third film, but let's take a little trip down memory lane back to the first film for a moment with some concept art for an ending that was cut from ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’—an ending that features a haunting homage to the original ‘Planet of the Apes.’ Why was this ending cut? Presumably because the studio wasn't fully committed to making a sequel at this point in the planning stage.

A nice Canadian boy goes down to Colombia with his brother to surf some waves, but then he meets and falls in love with the beautiful niece of a major Colombian drug lord, and decides to join the family business expecting to live happily ever after—because nothing ever goes wrong when you get into the cocaine business, right? The first trailer for ‘Escobar: Paradise Lost’ is yet another cautionary tale about the dangers of getting mixed up in the cocaine trade, but this time with Josh Hutcherson, surfing, and Benicio Del Toro portraying one of the most infamous drug lords in history.
