jurassic-world-images-chris-pratt-raptors

Two new images have been released for "Jurassic World". Colin Trevvorow's sequel will take place 22 years after the events from "Jurassic Park" and will find a whole new kind of chaos within a fully-functional dinosaur theme park. The new images show the film's protagonist played by Chris Pratt alongside some Velociraptors that appear to be a lot friendlier than I remember them. The film also stars Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy and Judy Greer.

"Jurassic World" opens in theaters on June 12, 2015.

Check out the images after the jump.

Everly Movie Trailer Salma Hayek

The first trailer for the action thriller "Everly" has been released. Directed by Joe Lynch, the film stars Salma Hayek as a Yakuza prostitute and informer for the police who is forced to defend herself against assassins sent by a dangerous mob boss, who also happens to be her ex. This would be Hayek's attempt at rebranding herself Liam Neeson-style, and already the Internet is roaring about this being a female version of Die Hard. It remains to be seen just how good it really is. The film also stars Jennifer Blanc, Togo Igawa, Akie Kotabe and Hiroyuki Watanabe. So far there is no official release date for the film.

Watch the trailer after the jump.

Kim Dickens Picture
Fans of AMC's "The Walking Dead" will be happy to learn that the network is developing a spinoff series based on the original show, but set in a different location and possibly in a different moment of the zombie apocalypse. For now there isn't much information available regarding the plot, apart from rumors suggesting that the series will be set in Los Angeles and will be focusing on the early days of the zombie outbreak. Now it has been reported that Kim Dickens ("Gone Girl") will lead the spinoff.

The story will follow a divorced teacher (Cliff Curtis) and a guidance counselor (Dickens) who work together and are in a relationship. The cast will also include Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam-Carey as the guidance counselor's children from another marriage. While Curtis' character has been described as a "good man who tries to do right by everyone in his life", Dickens' character "looks like the girl next door but has a darkness to her, a troubled past that will come back to haunt her."

Adam Davison will direct the pilot, which is set to begin production in early 2015.

The Interview Movie VOD Release TV Spots

After all the controversy surrounding Sony's "The Interview" and North Korea's absurd threats, the studio withdrew the film from theaters but ultimately decided to release it via VOD (Watch on iTunes here). To mark the film's release we have three new TV spots. While the controversy itself and the reactions of everyone involved could easily be the subject of an equally absurd comedy, the film did manage to gross $18 million since its Christmas Day release, with $15 million coming from VOD sales. The film stars James Franco, Seth Rogen, Lizzy Caplan, Diana Bang and Charles Rahi Chun.

box-office-hobbit-battle-five-armies-unbroken-into-the-woods

The Christmas weekend proved to be very merry indeed for three movies. The leader of the pack is still "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" for a second consecutive weekend with $41 million domestically in the last three days and a grand worldwide total of $573 million. In second place we have Angelina Jolie's World War II true story drama "Unbroken" which grossed $47 million in 4 days and close behind at #3 is the fantasy musical "Into the Woods" with $46 million in the same timeframe, a very good start for both films in the upcoming awards season.

The week's other wide release, the remake "The Gambler" starring Mark Wahlberg made a less impressive debut. The film opened in seventh place with $9.3 million over the weekend and $14 million in 4 days. Still, it's not a total disaster for the $25 million movie, especially in the face of such tough competition.

"The Imitation Game" managed to climb into the top 10 after expanding in more theaters and grossed $7.9 million in the last three days. The film will expand further by January 9th.

Tim Burton's "Big Eyes" did not manage to take advantage of the holidays. The biopic scored $3 million from 1,307 theaters and totalled $4.4 million since its release on Christmas day. 

New Wide Releases: "Unbroken", "Into the Woods", "The Gambler", "Big Eyes".

weekend-box-office-hobbit-battle-five-armies-night-at-the-museum-secret-of-the-tomb-annie

It's no surprise that Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" dominates the weekend box-office. Even though the competition was a lot tougher than it was for previous installments, the epic final chapter in the Middle-Earth prequel trilogy scored $56 million over the weekend and $90.6 million in the five days since its release. The film also grossed $265 million overseas which is pretty awesome. However, as far as weekends go, "The Battle of the Five Armies" made less money than "An Unexpected Journey" which grossed $84 million in its first weekend, and "The Desolation of Smaug" which opened with $73 million, both within a 3-day timeframe. The final chapter in the trilogy will probably gross less than the previous films, but not by very much. It's still going to make a ton of money.

The sequel "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb" took second place with a modest $17 million, a slow opening for the $127 million production and the weakest of the series. "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian" registered a $54 million debut in 2009 while the first film in the franchise scored a $30 million opening weekend in 2006.

After a pretty rotten week which included North-Korean cyber-attacks, Sony managed a mild success with its "Annie" remake which opened third with $16 million. While these may not be huge numbers, the family film could pick up more business during the holiday week.

Meanwhile, last week's "Exodus: Gods and Kings" took a steep dive, dropping 66% from first place to fourth and only managed $8 million this weekend. Ridley Scott's epic is shaping up to be one of 2014's flops with just $100 million worldwide in 10 days versus a $140 million budget that would require a Biblical miracle to recouperate.

New Wide Releases: "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies", "Annie", "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb".

Silverman will also act as executive producer on the show which is written by Lucy Prebble ("Secret Diary of a Call Girl"). The actress' return to HBO comes a year after the premium cable network passed on the pilot for "People in New Jersey" from Lorne Michaels ("Saturday Night Live") and Bruce Eric Kaplan ("Girls"). This would also mark Silverman's first TV role since Comedy Central's "The Sarah Silverman Program" which earned her an Emmy nomination for Best Comedy Actress. The actress-comedian can also be seen next year in three big screen projects: the comedy "Still Punching the Clown", the romantic dramedy "Ashby" and the drama "I Smile Back".

Star Wars The Force Awakens Characters Revealed

After the release of the first teaser trailer for J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", the fans have been working hard to make sense of the few scenes included in the trailer. I think Stephen Colbert completely nailed the lightsaber topic (Check it out here). But now we are getting more information about the sequel through some old-school trading cards released online (via Entertainment Weekly) which reveal the names of the main characters. The cast features John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Crystal Clarke, Pip Andersen, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker.

The awesome cast features Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Ian McKellen, Luke Evans, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, John Bell, Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, John Callen, Benedict Cumberbatch, Stephen Fry, Ryan Gage, Mark Hadlow, Peter Hambleton, Stephen Hunter, William Kircher, Graham McTavish, Michael Mizrahi, James Nesbitt, Dean O’Gorman, Lee Pace, Mikael Persbrandt, Ken Stott and Aidan Turner.

Viola Davis Picture
Yet another big name has joined the already impressive cast of the DC Comics adaptation "Suicide Squad". Academy Award nominee Viola Davis ("The Help") is set to star as Amanda Waller in the film which will be directed by David Ayer ("Fury").

Viola Davis can also be seen next year in Michael Mann's cyber-thriller "Blackhat" and the drama "Lila & Eve" in which she stars alongside Jennifer Lopez.

Production on "Suicide Squad" is set to begin in April and the released date has been scheduled for August 5, 2016.

Christina Hendricks Picture
Christina Hendricks ("Mad Men") has joined the cast of the new Showtime comedy series "Roadies" created by Cameron Crowe ("Jerry Maguire"). Crowe also wrote and will direct the pilot episode which will begin shooting early next year in Vancouver. The show will follow the tour of a successful rock band through the eyes of the crew members. Hendricks will star as Shelli, the band's production manager who is "tough, but privately emotional, married to her job … and scary-good at it." The series will also star Luke Wilson as the tour manager, Imogen Poots as the electrical technician, Keisha Castle-Hughes as the sound mixer, Peter Cambor as the guitar tech and Rafe Spall as the band's financial manager. Winnie Holzman will act as showrunner and J.J. Abrams will be one of the executive producers.

Here is the official press release:
"Five-time Emmy® Award nominee Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) will star in the new SHOWTIME pilot ROADIES, which follows the day-to-day life of a successful rock tour as seen through the eyes of music’s unsung heroes – the crew members who get the show on the road. Christina Hendricks will portray “Shelli,” the band’s production manager – Bill’s (Luke Wilson) ingenious work partner, tough, but privately emotional, married to her job… and scary-good at it. Luke Wilson (Old School, The Royal Tenenbaums), Imogen Poots (The Look of Love), Rafe Spall (One Day), Peter Cambor (NCIS: Los Angeles) and Academy Award® nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes (Whale Rider) were previously announced as stars of the ensemble cast. The one-hour comedy pilot will shoot in Vancouver in early 2015.

ROADIES follows a hot-ticket tour, but with a simple twist: the band is in the background and the roadies take the spotlight. It’s an inside look at the reckless, romantic, funny and often poignant lives of a committed group of characters who live for music and the de facto family they’ve formed along the way. Oscar® winner Cameron Crowe wrote and will direct and executive produce the pilot (for a potential series). Emmy and Tony® nominee Winnie Holzman (My So-Called Life, Wicked, Huge), will executive produce and serve as showrunner, along with executive producers Emmy winners J.J. Abrams (Lost, Fringe, Person of Interest) and Bryan Burk (Lost, Fringe, Person of Interest). Kathy Lingg (Person of Interest, Fringe) is co-executive producer. ROADIES is produced by Bad Robot Productions, Vinyl Films and Dooley & Company Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Five-time Emmy Award nominee Christina Hendricks is best known for her tour de force performance as “Joan Harris” on Mad Men. Hendricks’ feature film credits include Drive, Ginger & Rosa, I Don’t Know How She Does It, Detachment and Life as We Know It. She will next be seen in Dark Places, opposite Charlize Theron, ChloĆ« Grace Moretz and Nicholas Hoult, and in John Slattery’s Sundance film God’s Pocket opposite the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. Hendricks also stars in the lead role in Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut, Lost River, which recently premiered at the Cannes International Film Festival."

A new trailer, poster and four images has been released for the "Divergent" sequel "Insurgent", the second of the four-film series based on Veronica Roth's young adult sci-fi books. If you're new to the franchise, this trailer won't mean much, but it does feature some interesting visuals. The story follows Tris (Shailene Woodley) as she searches for allies and answers to the mystery of her past in the ruins of a futuristic Chicago while being hunted by Jeanine (Kate Winslet), the leader of the power-hungry Erudite elite. The cast also features Ansel Elgort, Theo James, Maggie Q, Miles Teller, Mekhi Phifer, Zoe Kravitz, Keiynan Lonsdale, Jai Courtney, Naomi Watts, Kate Winslet, Daniel Dae Kim, Ray Stevenson and Octavia Spencer.

Jamie Lee Curtis Picture
Emma Roberts Picture
"American Horror Story" creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk are developing a new anthology series for Fox. The show will be titled "Scream Queens" and Fox has already placed a straight-to-series order, which is no surprise given the popularity of Murphy and Falchuk's other show.

Jamie Lee Curtis and Emma Roberts have signed on to lead the first season of "Scream Queens", which Murphy claims will "create a whole new genre". Season one will be comprised of 15 one-hour episodes and the story will focus on a "college campus which is rocked by a series of murders". Roberts has had some experience with slasher flicks in Wes Craven's "Scream 4", but Curtis is actually a veteran. The 56-year-old actress has starred in horror films like "Halloween", "Halloween II", "Terror Train", "Prom Night and "The Fog".

"Scream Queens" will go into production in the Spring and will premiere Fall 2015.

box-office-exodus-gods-and-kings

The time has come for "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" to pass the crown. This weekend, the charts were topped by Ridley Scott's somewhat controversial Biblical epic "Exodus: Gods and Kings". The film grossed $24.5 million over a pretty quiet weekend and managed to secure an additional $49.8 million from foreign markets. However, the film's expensive pricetag ($140 million), also means that it will have to keep performing well over the next few week.

This weekend's other major release, Chris Rock's debut as a writer and director, "Top Five", opened in fourth place with $7.2 million from 979 theaters. The film will continue to expand in more locations and the positive buzz could built it up into a box-office hit.

New Wide Releases: "Exodus: Gods and Kings", "Top Five".

Biggest Drop : "Horrible Bosses 2" (-45%)

Smallest Drop : "The Theory of Everything" (-4.6%)

Kirsten Dunst
Jesse Plemons
The second season of FX's "Fargo" series is beginning to take shape. The first plot details suggest that Season 2 will focus on Solverson (Keith Carradine) returning to Sioux Falls, South Dakota from Vietnam and tackling a new case in 1979. The first cast members have also been announced. Kirsten Dunst ("Spider-Man") and Jesse Plemons ("Breaking Bad") have signed on to play supporting roles in the series. Dunst will play Peggy Blomquist, "a beautician with big-city dreams who is trying to figure out who she really is and what she really wants as she struggles with societal expectations". Plemons will take the role of Blomquist's husband, Ed, "a butcher's assistant who wants to be supportive of his wife's self-discovery — even if he doesn't quite understand it." Unofficial casting indicates that Jeffrey Donovan and Nick Offerman are also in talks to star. Creator Noah Hawley will resume showrunner duties. Production begins in January and the new season will premiere Fall 2015.

Exodus Gods and Kings Movie Clips

Four clips have been released for Ridley Scott's "Exodus: Gods and Kings". The Biblical epic opens today in theaters but reviews so far have been extremely harsh. While the movie isn't lacking in the visual department and the actors give it their best, Scott has been accused of focusing too much on visual effects and not enough on characters and narrative, which seems to have led to the creation of a very thin epic. The film stars Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, Ben Kingsley, Sigourney Weaver, Ben Mendelsohn and John Turturro.

Watch the clips after the jump.

The Gunman Movie Trailer Sean Penn

The first trailer for the action thriller "The Gunman" has been released. The film is directed by Pierre Morel ("Taken") an it stars Sean Penn as a hitman who must clear his name in order to save himself from the organization that he used to work for. Javier Bardem stars as Penn's colleague who becomes his enemy and he appears to deliver a wonderfully over-the-top performance. Idris Elba, Ray Winstone, Jasmine Trinca and Mark Rylance also star.

"The Gunman" opens in theaters on March 20, 2015.
