All the casting news relating to next year's X-Men: Days of Future Past has pertained exclusively to familiar actors from the franchise returning to their roles, but for the first truly new addition, director Bryan Singer has managed to secure one hell of a talent.
That talent: Peter Dinklage, the strong center who holds together HBO's hugely popular Game of Thrones.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is turning into a thoroughly unconventional franchise effort, a sequel to a prequel that wraps itself around the movies getting prequelized in the first place. Not only is the text itself turning into an X-pretzel, but Bryan Singer, the director of X-Men and X2, is once again directing the mutant mayhem.
Singer's now talking about just how the time travel story will work in X-Men: Days of Future Past and how it will square the often disparate continuities presented by the series so far.
The 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards went down at the Shrine Exposition Center in Los Angeles last night.
Daniel Day-Lewis and Jennifer Lawrence won the big theatrical acting awards on account of their respective performances in Steven Spielberg's Lincoln and David O. Russell's Silver Linings Playbook. Both are also nominated for Academy Awards this year. Day-Lewis has one that big award twice before, and Lawrence has been nominated once previously for her outstanding performance in Winter's Bone.
We've spent the last month or so offhandedly wondering which actors from the established X-Men franchise would reprise their familiar roles in X-Men: Days of Future Past.
And now we know. Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore, and Ellen Page will once again play Rogue, Iceman, and Kitty Pryde, respectively.
Three more official images from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire have trickled online. While this trio of pictures contains nary a glimpse at Katniss Everdeen, Peeta Mellark, Gale Hawthorne, or even Finnick Odair. Instead, these images show off several returning characters, as well as a first look at a pivotal new player, and an explanation from the filmmakers as to the omission of some important figures from the novel by Suzanne Collins.
Who’s in? Who’s out? The Oscar nominees have now been announced and while the Academy did get a lot right, there were also some glaring omissions. The 3 biggest surprises: No Ben Affleck for Best Director. No John Hawkes for Best Actor. No Leonardo DiCaprio for Best Supporting Actor. What’s so shocking about those “snubs”- and every year there are the inevitable few- is that I would argue that all 3 of them could have WON the Oscar had they been nominated. Let’s take a closer look at the 6 main categories, both the nominees and the snubs, and what it all means…
The hit horror-thriller House at the End of the Street is now available on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download, providing audiences with the opportunity to see ascending superstar and acclaimed young actress Jennifer Lawrence redefining feeble notions of just what it means to be a "scream queen."
Following yesterday's reveal of the first official image from this year's sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, we have two more new Lionsgate-approved pictures from the film featuring two major characters at whom we didn't get so much as a peek yesterday.
It's been some time since we've heard a dispatch from the beleaguered citizenry of Panem, so how about the first official look at Jennifer Lawrence and Sam Claflin in next year's The Hunger Games: Catching Fire?
Synopsis: Oscar® nominee Jennifer Lawrence, fresh off her success in the worldwide hit The Hunger Games, and Oscar nominee Elisabeth Shue (Leaving Las Vegas, Piranha 3D) star in this edge-of-your-seat psychological thriller about a teenager, Elissa, and her divorced mom, Sarah, who move into an upscale neighborhood to start a better life. But after they learn of rumors that the nearby woods are haunted by a homicidal killer, and Elissa befriends the mysterious sole survivor of a grisly double murder that took place in the house next door, their dreams for a brighter future spiral into a twisted nightmare. Things go smoothly at first: Sarah (Elizabeth Shue) finds a good job and meets a nice guy while Elissa (Jennifer Lawrence) settles in at school and finds herself drawn to the boy next door, Ryan (Max Thieriot, My Soul to Take). Ryan seems like a kindred spirit, misunderstood and passionate, and Elissa sympathizes with his isolation—he is still shunned by the town years after his deranged sister Carrie Anne murdered their parents in a fit of inexplicable rage. But as Ryan and Elissa spend more time together, details of his past come to the surface. Finding out the truth could be the worst thing that ever happened to Elissa.
Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Max Thieriot, Elisabeth Shue, Gil Bellows
Director: Mark Tonderai
