Jennifer Lawrence Photo
Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence ("Silver Linings Playbook") will reunite with "The Hunger Games" director Gary Ross for a new adaptation of John Steinbeck’s novel "East of Eden". And since Steinbeck's work is much too vast and complex for one movie, it seems that the filmmakers are pondering dividing the story into two installments. The story is set in the rich farmland of California’s Salinas Valley and follows the intertwined destinies of the Trask and Hamilton families, "whose generations helplessly reenact the fall of Adam and Eve and the poisonous rivalry of Cain and Abel". "East of Eden" was previously adapted in 1952 by Elia Kazan and starred James Dean and Richard Davalos. Jennifer Lawrence is set to star in the new adpatation as "Cathy Ames, the cold and cruel mother of the boys and estranged wife of the farmer. The films will tell their stories, leading into the rivalry between their sons.".

Box Office Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2

The animated comedy "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2" took the top spot this past weekend, as expected, although its $35 million 3-day gross was not as impressive as that of rival animated features and only slightly better than the $30 million earned by the first film in its debut weekend. Meanwhile, last week's #1 drama "Prisoners" dropped to #2, and the previously limited release "Rush" expanded and landed at #3 with a modest $10 million in the US and an additional $13 million overseas. Two new comedies also opened this week, "Baggage Claim" starring Paula Patton at #4 and Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut "Don Jon" at #5. Both performed modestly but are essentially low-budget films, so they shouldn't have too much trouble recouperating their investments. Although not part of the top 10, "Metallica Through the Never" performed quite well during its 3D and IMAX limited release this weekend, grossing $1.6 million from 305 theaters. The concert movie expands this Friday.

Need for Speed Movie Trailer

The first trailer and images for Dreamworks' videogame adaptation "Need for Speed" have been released. The film stars Aaron Paul ("Breaking Bad") as a car mechanic who has been framed for murder. After being released from jail, he begin a cross-country race against time to get revenge on the man who framed him (Dominic Cooper). The whole synopsis is a bit more complicated, but you can read it for yourself after the jump. The surprising thing about the trailer is that it really digs into its revenge flick premise, showing off car chases and intense slow motion sequences, all accompanied by an equally intense orchestral soundtrack. I was expecting the trailer to be an over-the-top showcase of techno music, car explosions and scantily clad babes, but it seems that the filmmakers are going for something more ambitious. It remains to be seen if it's too ambitious for its videogame roots. The film is directed by Scott Waugh ("Act of Valor") and also stars Imogen Poots, Kid Cudi, Ramon Rodriguez, Rami Malek, Harrison Gilbertson, Dakota Johnson and Michael Keaton. "Need for Speed" opens on March 14, 2014.

The Dark Knight Blu-Ray Trilogy Ultimate Collector's Edition


Rated: PG-13 | Studio: Warner Home Video

The Dark Knight Trilogy Blu-Ray Cover
Batman Begins: Batman Begins explores the origins of the Batman legend and the Dark Knight's emergence as a force for good in Gotham. In the wake of his parents' murder, disillusioned industrial heir Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) travels the world seeking the means to fight injustice and turn fear against those who prey on the fearful. He returns to Gotham and unveils his alter-ego: Batman, a masked crusader who uses his strength, intellect and an array of high tech deceptions to fight the sinister forces that threaten the city.

The Dark Knight: The follow-up to Batman Begins, The Dark Knight reunites director Christopher Nolan and star Christian Bale, who reprises the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in his continuing war on crime. With the help of Lt. Jim Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent, Batman sets out to destroy organized crime in Gotham for good. The triumvirate proves effective, but soon find themselves prey to a rising criminal mastermind known as The Joker, who thrusts Gotham into anarchy and forces Batman closer to crossing the fine line between hero and vigilante. Heath Ledger stars as archvillain The Joker, and Aaron Eckhart plays Dent. Maggie Gyllenhaal joins the cast as Rachel Dawes. Returning from Batman Begins are Gary Oldman as Gordon, Michael Caine as Alfred and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox.

The Dark Knight Rises: It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act. But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.
