It was announced last September that 'Harry Potter' franchise author J.K. Rowling is working with Warner Bros. on a spinoff titled 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,' and now comes word that the studio will follow in the footsteps of the 'Hobbit' franchise by making the exciting new project into an even more exciting new trilogy, milking every bit of of this magic for what its worth.
In what had become an inevitability at this point with the insanely rising box office numbers, Disney's smash hit animated film 'Frozen' has now become the highest grossing animated film of all time, usurping former crown holder 'Toy Story 3,' which held the title since 2010. And judging by these numbers and the love for the film, it doesn't look like 'Frozen' is going to "Let It Go" so easily.
In case you didn't know by now (or if your mom didn't make it a point to tell you, since it's like, one of the only facts she probably prides herself on knowing about actors), Hugh Jackman has some musical theater chops. Oh, you didn't see 'Les Miserables'? The 'Wolverine' and 'X-Men' star recently took that talent to BBC Radio 1 to perform a cover of the 'Les Mis' song "Who Am I," repurposed with lyrics about his on-screen alter ego, Wolverine, and the results are, well, okay, they're pretty charming.
A Hobbit in space? Maybe! Dominic Monaghan, known for his role in the 'Lord of the Rings' films and for playing Charlie on the J.J. Abrams-produced hit series 'LOST' has been talking to his old friend about showing up in 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' As a Jedi? He wishes! But he has spoken to the director about a supporting role.
Superhero movies doing cross-promotional ads with fast food companies is nothing new and neither is Hardee's commercials that sexualize women and hamburgers, but this new ad featuring Mystique (or a stand-in, anyway) to promote both 'X-Men: Days of Future of Past' and Hardee's new Western X-Tra Bacon burger is so offensively awful, even by dumb commercial standards, it'll make you wish Professor X could wipe your brain after.
'Scarface' is being remade yet again. The film, which began life on the screen in 1932 as a classic gangster story was remade by Brian De Palma in the 1983 film starring Al Pacino as a Cuban refugee who goes from street dealer to drug kingpin. Universal, which already has a script for the contemporary remake, has found a director: Pablo Larrain, a Chilean director, most recently known for his critically acclaimed 2012 film, 'No.'
Today marks the 30th anniversary of the day - March 24, 1984 - that 'The Breakfast Club' first met: that would be the day that characters from John Hughes' beloved teen classic were all stuck in detention together. And although at first glance this group of teens had nothing in common, they bonded over the course of that special Saturday, learning that they couldn't be defined by the labels they chose for themselves (or the ones that had been chosen for them) in the world of petty high school politics.
Sad news today: beloved character actor James Rebhorn, who most recently starred on Showtime's 'Homeland' as Carrie Mathison's father, has passed away at the age of 65. Rebhorn, who also recently appeared on 'White Collar' and is known for roles on 'Seinfeld' and in 'Scent of a Woman,' passed on Friday afternoon.
We've been keeping you guys updated on the status of a new Pee-wee Herman movie courtesy of Pee-wee star and creator Paul Reubens over the course of the last couple of years, but now producer Judd Apatow brings us an update himself. While it was previously rumored that Apatow would direct the new film, the funny guy's been keeping busy, but he assures us that the new Pee-wee project is definitely still in the works -- with a script and everything!
While we're all gearing up for the 2014 Academy Awards, there's a different sort of long-standing awards tradition that took place over the weekend: the Razzie Awards, which honors the best of the worst in film in each year. And this year M. Night Shyamalan and Will Smith's 'After Earth' and the celeb-heavy ensemble anthology comedy 'Movie 43' took home the most prizes with three awards each.
