First Trailer For ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1′ Starts The Revolution

The first trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 has debuted via Facebook and has started the revolt against The Capitol and President Snow! You can view the trailer after the jump.

From the looks of it, Francis Lawrence (director of I Am Legend and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) seems to have made the universe of Panem all the more epic than it was in the preceding film. We get multiple shots teasing characters like Cressida (Game of Throne‘s Natalie Dormer) and the lead of the Capitol revolt, President Alma Coin (portrayed by the legendary …

First ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Footage Revs Its Way Onto The Net

Just only yesterday did director George Miller (creator/director of the Mad Max trilogy) debut extended footage of Mad Max: Fury Road to a roaring crowd inside Hall H at San Diego Comic Con.

Judging by the footage, it looks as if Mad Max is back in the best way possible. This new entry reportedly takes place after the events of Mad Max (the first film in the original trilogy) and before the second film, The Road Warrior. This time around, Max is aiding Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron), a mechanical-armed woman who wants to make it back to her homeland. …

‘Lucy’ Defeats ‘Hercules’ With an Astonishing $44 Mil

Somehow, someway, Scarlett Johansson’s latest lead effort has done the unexpected and acquired a hefty $44 million dollar gross this opening weekend. Clearly, this news wouldn’t be as shocking if its major competitor wasn’t starred by heavyweight Dwayne Johnson, whose action-packed film, Hercules, had only scooped up about $29 million, according to Rentrak.

Lucy’s success can be pointed off to its story: Yes, female-led films tend to not perform so well in the box office, but there’s still such an original plot that manages to pique audience interest just enough to convince them to choose it over a household …

What if you experienced something in your life that would result in shattering your preconceptions about it? That’s what Mike Cahill, director of 2011’s mystifying Another Earth, is asking with his new film I Origins. Luckily, that overlying theme is just a backdrop to an intimate story about obsession as a scientist is challenged to believe that there might be a higher power than scientific logic.

Check out the synopsis (per FOX Searchlight) here: I Origins, the second feature film from writer and director Mike Cahill, tells the story of Dr. Ian Gray (Boardwalk Empire’s Michael Pitt), a molecular biologist studying the evolution of the eye.
