Split Decision: How Breaking Movies In Half is Ruining Hollywood Blockbusters

‘Mockingjay’ is the latest example of perhaps the single most frustrating trend in modern Hollywood: The part-ification of franchise finales. It’s no longer enough to make a successful movie, or even a successful series of movies; Hollywood now extends—or dilutes, really—these cash cows even further, by breaking their concluding installments in half. You can’t judge a book by its cover, but you absolutely can judge a movie by its title, at least when that title includes the phrase “Part 1.” If it does, get ready for a languid, uneventful film full of set-up and absolutely zero payoff.

Isn’t it just a little early to start thinking about Valentine’s Day? When you see your neighbors put out their Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving, don’t you do a bit of a combo eyeroll-cringe? ‘50 Shades of Grey’ doesn’t seem to think it’s too early to start thinking about Valentine’s Day, and has already released its first TV spot to remind you that the holiday is approaching (in a few months), and if it’s Valentine’s Day, it’s ‘50 Shades of Grey.’

‘Danny Collins’ Trailer: Al Pacino Is a Slightly Ridiculous Has-Been Rocker

EDIT

We all know the familiar story of the washed-up, has-been rocker, but the trailer for ‘Danny Collins’ takes the premise and gives it a little twist with an added bit of hoo-ah for emphasis: what if a promising rocker actually went on to have a very successful career, but that career was shallow and lacked the depth and soul of his earlier, folksy background? What if a rocker who idolized John Lennon evolved into something of a Barry Manilow? The result is Al Pacino’s Danny Collins, and as Annette Bening notes, he does look slightly ridiculous.

Stephen King's 'The Stand' is a project that has struggled to find its way to the big screen for many years now, but in the hands of 'The Fault in Our Stars' director Josh Boone, it's finally picking up serious steam and the adaptation has felt more promising than ever. Whether or not Boone could take King's epic novel and translate it into one film has been a lingering question, and one that Boone has finally answered: No, 'The Stand' will not be just one film. Instead, it will be a shocking four-film adaptation, which seems excessive even for fans of the novel.

It's been several years since Mel Gibson has directed a film, and although he recently appeared in 'The Expendables 3,' he's been mostly under the radar for a while now. But that might change as Gibson is in talks to take on his first directing project in eight years: the WWII drama 'Hacksaw Ridge,' which could potentially star Andrew Garfield, who currently has some time on his hands as the fate of 'The Amazing Spider-Man' franchise is somewhat uncertain.

‘The Wedding Ringer’ Red-Band Trailer Gets NSFW Just in Time for the Holidays

One of the more puzzling bits of marketing is the addition of featuring quotes from Twitter users who have seen an upcoming film at a sneak preview screening—it's an approach heavily relied upon in the new red band trailer for 'The Wedding Ringer,' the Josh Gad and Kevin Hart bromance buddy comedy. The red band element should be enough of a gimmick to enhance the odd couple shenanigans of Gad and Hart, but the studio is really pushing this whole "random Twitter user expresses profane excitement for this film!" schtick.
