When you speak to Sam Claflin, he is nothing like his ‘Hunger Games’ counterpart—he comes across as humble (an adjective that does not at all describe Finnick Odair) and he doesn’t quite understand why anyone would want to make such a fuss over him. As Claflin says, ‘The Hunger Games’ has brought him a lot more attention, but he can still walk down the street—it’s not quite the same phenomenon that he’s witnessed happen to a few of his co-stars. Ahead, Claflin discusses his pivotal role in this ‘Hunger Games’ chapter—which includes a prolonged filibuster used as a distraction during a rescue mission—and he explains how Finnick, in the heat of battle, can still have such perfect hair.
‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ is available today via digital download, but such is the business of Marvel superhero movies that we’re already looking ahead to the next movie and what James Gunn has in store for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2'. As he’s been promoting the upcoming home video release, Gunn has talked about the sequel and one thing in particular has caught our nerdy attention: The Celestials.
The new ‘Seventh Son’ trailer is startling reminder that yes, this movie still exists and wasn’t something our addled brains cooked up while we were bed-ridden and battling a fever. Someone actually shot a movie where the great Jeff Bridges, complete with his trademark Rooster Cogburn mumble, plays a witch-hunting, monster-slaying magical warrior. And yes, you do remember correctly: this thing was supposed to come out in 2013 and yes, it was delayed to 2015. The word you’re looking for there is “Yikes.”
As Charlie Brown and Snoopy are perhaps best known for their classic holiday special ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas,’ it only makes sense that the new ‘Peanuts’ trailer debuts with a very Christmas-y feel. You have to wait until next Christmas to see the CGI ‘Peanuts’ movie, but you can get a taste of what it will look and feel like with this new trailer.
December is a big month at the movies: not only do we find plenty of family-friendly holiday season offerings, but it's also when we see the last bout of awards-season contenders hitting theaters. The final month of 2014 brings a ‘Night at the Museum,’ a ‘Hobbit,’ and ‘Annie’ for the whole family to enjoy, as well as much more adult fare like ‘Inherent Vice’ and ‘The Gambler.’ There's no shortage of offerings to help you escape the winter chill, so read on for our guide to December's new movie releases.
It's been almost a year since we've heard anything about the big screen adaptation of beloved children's horror book series ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.’ But rest assured, CBS Films is still fully committed to this odd adaptation, and have now hired screenwriter John August, who last wrote the 2012 Tim Burton film ‘Frankenweenie.’ As that film was both a return to form of sorts for Burton and delivered a charming, spooky and kooky kid-friendly narrative, the hiring of August could be promising.
If you caught video of that big Marvel event from a couple of weeks back, you may have noticed an image in the background during the presentation of a Phase 3 timeline. It looked pretty awesome, and had all of Marvel's official logos along with release dates for their upcoming phase of films. If you were hoping to get your hands on that image, we've got excellent news, fellow superhero nerd: Marvel has officially released their Phase 3 timeline, so now you can look at it whenever you want.
ScreenCrush wraps up the latest in movies and TV you might have missed. Today, gaze upon a toy version of a new dinosaur from ‘Jurassic World,’ learn why R2-D2 was cut from ‘The LEGO Movie,’ and ‘Inherent Vice’ reveals a new poster.
At a glance, MasraniGlobal.com looks like any other website for a boring technology company, with details on its founder, Sanjay Masrani, his son and successor Simon, and their financial interests in construction, engineering, real estate, health care, and dinosaur theme parks. On second thought, perhaps that last part is a clue that Masrani Global doesn’t exist, except as a fictional company in the story of ‘Jurassic World,’ next summer’s sequel to Steven Spielberg’s ’90s dinosaur classic.
This week, the third ‘Hunger Games’ movie, which follows the first part of the third book, will be released into theaters. It is called ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1,’ which is a lot of words. But, here we are. Already, ‘The Hunger Games...
