‘Guardians’ Again / Tori Amos Covers NIN

The TV Guide

Last night Sarah, Mark and I made our way to their local movie theater so that we could see Guardians of the Galaxy together. Altho I’ve already seen the movie, they hadn’t so I was happy to see it again with them. The plan for the night was to keep things nice and easy so we opted for the movie date. Considering Sarah and I are headed up to Toronto, Ontario later today, an easy movie night was the perfect choice. More »

Anne Rice’s ‘The Vampire Chronicles’ Book Series Will Be Adapted As New Films

Undead

Back in March we learned the happy news that author Anne Rice has decided to resume her Vampire Chronicles book series with the release of a new novel titled Prince Lestat which is set for release later this year. Yesterday, Universal Pictures announced that they have optioned all of the books in The Vampire Chronicles to be adapted into new films. As you may know, Anne‘s first book in the series, Interview with the Vampire, was adapted into a hugely successful film back in 1994 with Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt starring (a really subpar sequel titled Queen of the Damned was released in 2002). 20 years later, Universal feels like its time to reboot the franchise. Even more exciting, Anne‘s son Christopher Rice wrote the screenplay for the Vampire Chronicles book Tale of the Body Thief and Universal purchased the rights to his screenplay! Lots of great news for the Rice family today. More »

‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1′ Releases A Batch Of Character Posters

Meet the Heroes of District 13

The promo push for the upcoming sequel film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 continues today with the release of a new batch of character posters from the film. A few weeks ago, we got to see the special limited edition Mockingjay poster that was released exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con but the posters we get today are much more interesting. Each of the characters featured above — President Coin, Haymitch, Effie, Plutarch, Finnick and Beetee — all represent the heroes from District 13 who are fighting against President Snow and the rest of Panem. These stark, colorless posters of the heroes of District 13 stand in opposition to the colorful, vibrant propaganda posters that were released previously of the “heroes” of the other Districts of Panem. Of this new batch, I think the Effie Trinkett poster is my fave. Check out the batch, see what you think. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 will open in theaters on November 20.

Megan Fox Tells The World She’s Not Having Sex With Her Husband, Because Kids

But is she sharing too much?

The last time we heard from Megan Fox she was telling us to go f— ourselves if we didn’t like the new Ninja Turtles movie, LOL. Oh, but she was also demanding a new female-centered superhero movie. And now she’s kind of putting her husband on blast. When I read these excerpts from her interview I couldn’t help but think of that Sexual Dissatisfaction Spreadsheet story that went viral a few weeks back. Hopefully Brian Austin Green has a sense of humor because his wife just told the world exactly what they’ve been doing in bed — not a damn thing! Click inside for more!

Watch: Here Is The Alternate Ending To ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′

Along with 20 minutes of deleted scenes
Salvaged from the cutting room floor

An alternate ending was shot for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that was shelved in lieu of the ending that we got when the movie was released back in May. Today we get to see the alternate ending to the film that was scrapped, along with 20ish or so minutes of deleted scenes from Amazing 2. Personally, I love the wait the movie ended so I am not a fan of this alt ending … but some of the deleted scenes are pretty cool. It’s fun to see stuff like this from movies that we enjoy. I’m not sure if this video will be allowed to remain online for long so watch while you still can.

First Look: Eddie Redmayne Becomes Stephen Hawking In The First Trailer For ‘The Theory Of Everything’

Prepare to start handing out awards, Hollywood
"My name is Stephen Hawking"

The first video trailer for the upcoming biopic film about the life of genius scientist Stephen Hawking has been released and it has left me stunned after just one viewing. Actor Eddie Redmayne stars in this new film, The Theory of Everything, as Hawking and I kid you not … had me crying actual tears before the 2 1/2 minute trailer was even finished. It would be silly to predict awards glory from just one viewing of one movie trailer but that was the first thing that occurred to me as the clip finished — this movie will win all the awards. While that remains to be seen, click the embed above to get your first look at Redmayne as Hawking in The Theory of Everything. You may cry, you will likely be impressed and you will definitely want to watch this trailer again.

Watch: Chris Pratt Takes Us On A ‘MTV Cribs’-Style Tour Of His Spaceship In ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’

"This is where the magic happens"
Check the Milano, Yo!

Since everyone, including me, is crazy in love with actor Chris Pratt these days, I just have to share this fun new video with all y’all. Pratt is featured in a new Guardians of the Galaxy featurette video that takes us on a tour of the Milano spaceship that his character Peter Quill/Star Lord flies in Guardians of the Galaxy. As you can see in the video above, the tour is meant to look like an episode of MTV Cribs (remember that show?). It should also be noted that the Milano spaceship is named thusly in honor of Peter Quill‘s childhood crush Alyssa Milano. Check out the cute video above and try not to fall MORE in love with Chris Pratt.

Are You Ready For Robert Pattinson’s First Gangsta Movie?

From 'Spring Breakers' director Harmony Korine...

I think it’s really interesting to watch actors reinvent themselves and Robert Pattinson is clearly doing just that. The Twilight star has seriously moved on from the franchise (in terms of career choices) and I don’t think anyone has to worry about him being only synonymous with Edward Cullen anymore. After working with the likes David Cronenberg and James Gray, Pattinson is gearing up for another bold indie move with Spring Breakers director and Kids writer Harmony Korine. Click inside for more!
