The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is going to be one the highest grossing films of 2015 no matter what, so every trailer and poster can’t help but feel ever-so-slightly redundant. Oh, remember that movie that you and everyone you know is already going to see anyway? Here’s an unnecessary reminder that it exists! And yet Lionsgate has been playing fans like a fiddle with their marketing campaign, and the latest trailer is one seriously impressive advertisement.

Josh Gad is sick of talking about Frozen. That's fair - as the father of a young daughter, I'm sick of watching it. So, there was some mutual sympathy as I caught up with Gad while he was out promoting Pixels and asked for an update on Frozen 2.
Arrow isn’t usually one to court controversy, though eyebrows understandably raised with yesterday’s Season 4 casting of DC supervillain Baron Blitzkrieg, not only for the character’s notable Nazi affiliation, but in casting actor Jimmy Akingbola for the role. Now, Arrow showrunner Marc Guggenheim explains how the Nazi elements will be dropped, also teasing Oliver’s new flashback journey.
In the tradition of ScreenCrush series like You Think You Know Movies, You Think You Know TV, and Post Credits comes a brand new YouTube series: Top 5!

Were zombies to truly start roaming the streets, we could all probably use a drink. The Walking Dead certainly isn’t ignorant of this fact, occasionally stopping in between walker hack-n’-slash for a pint or two, but at last fans have their own official beer to celebrate Robert Kirkman’s undead franchise, and with a bit of blood to boot.
Before Peter Jackson took the reigns of the franchise, Guillermo del Toro was supposed to direct The Hobbit, and planned to bring his friend and longtime collaborator Ron Perlman to voice the dragon Smaug. But financial problems and delays at MGM eventually forced del Toro from the project; after Peter Jackson, king of The Lord of the Rings, signed on to direct in his place, he replaced Perlman with Benedict Cumberbatch. That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which takes you on an unexpected journey behind the scenes of the first film in The Hobbit trilogy!
Fast approaching Season 6, AMC’s The Walking Dead already has its golden years in sight, even if franchise creator Robert Kirkman famously envisions the source material lasting indefinitely. Time is time, and even Kirkman has in mind how The Walking Dead might end, while a new Season 5 deleted scene should get fans a-buzzing for Rick and Michonne in Season 6.
If you’re anything like us, eyebrows naturally raised when The CW upped its Arrow ante from a Flash spinoff to the madcap Legends of Tomorrow cast and premise. It’s too early to know exactly how the time-travel teamup will pan out, but already its showrunner teases that not everyone will return for Season 2, and future Legends could look very different, potentially even subtitling each year, and with a limited shelf-life built in.
The latest promos for Fantastic Four give each individual member of Marvel’s First Family their very own spotlight while introducing a bit of new footage from the upcoming reboot.

We were on hand at Comic-Con 2015 for an advance look at Marvel’s new Guardians of the Galaxy animated series, but don’t feel bad for missing out.
