Sounds like someone is spinning up their FTLs on that much maligned Battlestar Galactica feature film, as a new writer has been added to the project. The Girl In The Spider’s Web scribe Jay Basu has reportedly been tapped to write a new version of the script for the film, taking over the position from Westworld co-creator Lisa Joy. Sounds like Francis […]
Aquaman‘s Jason Momoa is going from being “The King of the Seven Seas” to being a blind warrior in a sightless society, tapped as the lead in Apple‘s futuristic original drama series See. Spearheaded by Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight and director Francis Lawrence (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2), the […]
I’ll admit it right off: I do not want or need a new Battlestar Galactica. Ron Moore‘s reimagined series is the touchstone example of how to take an existing franchise and update it, modern story and modern casting at it’s best. For whatever reason, Universal decided in 2014 it was time (already, wth) to redo the […]
Fox has released a new poster and TV spot for Red Sparrow, the Jennifer Lawrence flick in which Lawrence plays, basically, Marvel’s Black Widow. Check out the description: Dominika Egorova is many things. A devoted daughter determined to protect her mother at all costs. A prima ballerina whose ferocity has pushed her body and mind […]
Marvel Studios may have chosen to make twenty movies in a row without making a single one led by a female hero, but rival Fox is apparently willing to make that long-awaited Black Widow movie Marvel didn’t. The studio has released the trailer for Red Sparrow, a spy thriller starring Jennifer Lawrence as a Russian […]
The journey to bring Battlestar Galactica to the big screen is now longer than the two television series combined. But recently, Michael De Luca took on the job of producing the picture and Variety reports Westworld writer Lisa Joy will adapt the concept. They also report The Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence is in early […]

He will also serve in the same capacity on an adaption Charles Belfoure‘s House Of Thieves. Deadline describes Neverwhere as centering on Richard Mayhew, who […]
This film not only stands alongside the first, it feels like the next, vital instalment in a series. It's like we're getting episodes of a great TV show... just really very, very spaced out.
Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth have a strained confrontation in the first clip from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Three new images from Catching Fire and a bunch of new photos from the set of Mockingjay.
As the Hunger Games books go on they became less cleanly plotted and conceived but, in many respects, even more politically provocative. Will it be the same with the films?
Our first vague sense of how the Hunger Games series will cope without Gary Ross.
She's a fan and she's had a meeting... but for which role?
Finally, the grown ups get a look in. Well, and Prim.
To the bitter end.
Lionsgate have officially announced release dates for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part One and Part Two. They fall on November 21st, 2014 and November 20th, 2015. With The Hunger Games: Catching Fire set for November 22nd, 2013, they’ve essentially staked out the Thanksgiving holiday for three years in a row. It’s debatable that Mockingjay needs two […]
The next film to join the craze of IMAXing certain sequences will be The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The large format film company have themselves announced that Francis Lawrence and team will shoot some of the movie in the large format, and the remainder will be digitally upscaled. The Dark Knight was the first film […]
He'll always be Brandt to me.
Lionsgate are looking to draft Michael Arndt, the writer of Little Miss Sunshine and Toy Story 3, to rework the script for Catching Fire, the second film in the Hunger Games series. This is a very good thing. Arndt is a deft writer with an outstanding grasp of structure and cinematic storytelling techniques. Heat Vision […]
I’m quite the fan of Harry Houdini, or at least his reputation – I never saw the man at work, and the writing I’ve read that was credited to him was all co-written, possibly rather heavily ghost written. His movie career left a lot to be desired, but his escapology and other magic tricks seem […]
