The Giver

After 20 Years, This Beloved Novel is Finally Coming to the Silver Screen

Lois Lowry’s The Giver movie adaptation has finally wrapped production, and it’s been a long road to get here Originally published in 1993, this Newbery Award winning novel was an instant success with teachers and librarians, adding it to their required reading lists. As a result, thousands of young adults have grown up reading The Giver. Like Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird, Lowry’s novel is remembered fondly by most as a wise, coming-of-age tale. For Jeff Bridges, to see the novel made into a movie…

Catching Fire

The Shameful Truth About The Oscars

Did you wonder why Catching Fire wasn’t nominated for an Oscar? So did we. In fact, let’s take it even further and consider why none of the Harry Potter movies, though nominated for cinematography, etc, ever won anything either. The Oscar selection committee is rather consistent in disregarding most book-to-silverscreen adaptations. Peter Jackson and his Lord of the Rings trilogy cleverly circumnavigated this trend (his trilogy won 17 of 30 Academy Award nominations).  But it all begs the question: why are so many YA book…

Wonder Woman

Let’s Turn Up The Volume On This, Shall We? Gal Gadot Brings Wonder Woman To Life

Gal Gadot confirmed that she’s signed to do 3 movies as the iconic heroine, Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman is more than just a superhero; she’s the superhero. She’s larger than life, which might be the reason behind so many failed attempts of mere mortals trying to portray her on the small screen. She’s strong, she’s a moral compass, she’s beautiful, and she’s alien. For the first time in over a decade, movie studios trying to breath life into Wonder Woman with Gal Gadot: former Miss…

‘Fantastic Four’ Is Set To Return, Possibly With An All New Cast?

The most recent Fantastic Four script has been announced as completed and casting is on the horizon Well, let’s remember what the original cast had to work with. The first ‘Fantastic Four’ script was (let’s be honest) terrible. Spoiler: the Fantastic Four did nothing to save the day. The villain was created and the entire city was pretty much destroyed at entirely the Fantastic Four’s own fault. That being said, I don’t think the actors should be punished for the writer’s and directors shortcomings. That’s…

Great News! A “Wonderous” Sequel in the Works

And You’ll Never Believe Who’s Up For Consideration The sequel to 2010’s immensely popular Alice in Wonderland, based off of the novel by Lewis Carroll, has been greenlighted by Disney — but with a new director. James Bobin, known for directing the recent Muppets movies, will be replacing Tim Burton and it’s going to be interesting to see how much of the spooky charm remains without the talented Burton at the helm. Appropriately titled Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass, the movie is set for release…

Now, I realize not everyone is an “Everlark” fan but let’s take a moment to bask in the impressive acting of the brilliant Jennifer Lawrence and the wonderful Josh Hutcherson. These moments…

It looks like it’s safe to say that the script has finally been completed, filming begins in May, and the release date is set for October 18th, 2015. Aside from that, everything is rumor.

Richard Armitage Nailed This “Hobbit” Quiz, Could You?

Everyone knows that the fantastical world created by J.R.R. Tolkien for The Lord of The Rings, The Hobbit and The Silmarillion is exceedingly vast and complex, filled with backstories and side adventures and its own mythic lore. Empire Magazine quizzed the Hobbit cast on their own knowledge of Tolkien Trivia. While most answers were pretty weak, Richard Armitage (Thorin) absolutely nailed it (looks like someone really researched his part). Could you? (Gifs Source) (Interview can be found here)

Why aren’t more people talking about this? Russell Crowe brings Noah to the big screen.

Why haven’t I heard about this before now? For some reason, NOAH has completely slipped under my radar. NOAH’s all star cast looks wildly promising: Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, so on and so forth. If nothing else, the fans will most likely enjoy seeing all their favorite actors on screen together. However the trailer looks great, so I’m expecting it to be more than eye candy. The flood myth isn’t exclusive to Christianity, it’s found throughout the world in varying cultures,…
