And it looks so weird
Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Pan which, we now know, will be an origin of story of sorts that will reveal how Peter Pan came to be. While the premise sounds interesting, the first look at the movie in this trailer seems a bit weird. I cannot understand how Rooney Mara was cast as the Native American character Tiger Lily but the rest of the casting seems alright. Garrett Hedlund, as the young Hook, used to be friends with Peter pre-Pan, did you know that? I’m not sure why everyone is all gaga over Peter Pan these days but of the forthcoming Peter Pan projects, I think this one looks the most interesting to me. Check out the first trailer for Pan above then click below to see the first Pan posters. More »

"We have our first genetically-modified hybrid"
AHHHH!! A few days ago, with the release of that short teaser video, we learned that the first trailer for the sequel film Jurassic World would be released on Thanksgiving night. Today, we see that Universal Pictures has decided to release the trailer a wee bit early. Click the embed above to get your first look at Jurassic World and get a really good feel for what the movie will be all about. As you can see, the dinosaur theme park from Jurassic Park has been expanded into a very popular, well attended, (apparently) smooth-running theme park called Jurassic World … that is, until the genetically-modified hybrid dinosaur (I’m guessing a T-Rex/Velociraptor hybrid) that has inexplicably been created breaks loose and wrecks havoc on the island. I honestly got CHILLS watching this trailer. Are we actually seeing Chris Pratt‘s character team up WITH the raptors to battle the monstrous yet unseen new hybrid dino?! OMG! Watch this trailer again and again, feel the feels, then let me know what you think about Jurassic World in the comments below. This movie is going to RULE all! AHHH!!!

Back in 2012, we first learned that Disney/Pixar was planning production of a sequel film to Finding Nemo that would ultimately be revealed as a film titled Finding Dory. Initially, it was reported that Finding Dory would be opening in theaters in 2015 but it has since been pushed back to 2016. Today we get to check out the first poster that has been released for Finding Dory which is good news, I guess, even if the poster leaves much to be desired. More »

She will also produce the movie alongside Deborah Snyder and others
Last month we heard that Warner Bros. was looking to hire a female director to helm the first-ever big screen movie based on the iconic DC Comics superhero Wonder Woman and today we learn that the studio has found their woman. Michelle MacLaren, who has directed episodes of The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad (to name a few of the projects she’s worked on), has been hired to direct and produce Wonder Woman. Altho WW will be the first feature film that MacLaren will direct, it should be noted that Thor: The Dark World was directed by Alan Taylor and Captain America: The Winter Soldier was directed by Joe & Anthony Russo who had previously only directed TV shows before they made the jump to the big screen. Click below to learn more about Michelle MacLaren‘s hiring as the director of Wonder Woman. More »
The 'Pitch' is BACK!
Last week we got our FIRST LOOK at the first trailer for the upcoming sequel film Pitch Perfect 2. You may recall that we also got to see the cast of PP2 on the cover of the current issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine last week. Today, courtesy of EW, we get to see a batch of promo and behind the scenes photos from the set of Pitch Perfect 2. With 6 months to go before the movie comes out, we have some waiting to do but hopefully little gems like these photos (and THIS movie poster) will continue to come our way in order to make the waiting feel not so bad.

Cameron Diaz, who stars as Miss Hannigan in the upcoming remake of Annie, was the guest host on Saturday Night Live last night and in an effort to promote the release of the new version of Annie with humor (um, I *think* they were going for humor) she appeared in a “Black Annie” skit as Miss Hannigan. I’m not sure if they were going for a meta vibe to this skit or what but … well … watch it in full above and see what you think. Do we think this is funny or … nah?
PITNB's Weekly Discussion Forum
Okay. Let’s do this. I’ve been waiting for everyone to see this movie, since I got a chance to go to an early screening last week. FRIGGEN MOCKINGJAY. Let me tell you about my Hunger Games journey. I went to the first movie without having read any of the books. I thought, because the books were so YA popular, that I was going to be entertained, but not wildly impressed. I was wrong. I then read the first book, and was really amazed at how the story in the film seemed to stick so closely to the book. I haven’t read the other books yet, but I still LOVED Catching Fire, and I basically lost my mind/all control over my emotions when I saw Mockingjay, my favorite of the three. I really, really want to hear about everyone’s favorite moments from the film, so if you’ve seen it—or don’t mind HELLA HELLA SPOILERS— click inside for more!
She's ready to move on
This was an odd interview to read, but I have to say, I appreciate Angelina Jolie‘s honesty. I think we’re used to hearing actors talk about how much they love the work they do, how much of a dream come true it is to make a good living off of acting. But after years and years in the biz, Jolie is ready to call it quits, and give up on acting. Don’t worry—we’ll still be seeing her around. Click inside for more!
