Is it too early to crown our own favorite MTV kid Dylan O'Brien as the new king of sci-fi? Because we're totally seeing a trend emerge here! According to a report from Deadline—which comes fresh on the heels of his casting in the starring role in the much-anticipated "Maze Runner" movie—Dylan is now eyeballing another lead: the time-traveling teen protagonist of "Glimmer." Which he is eyeballing from behind the wheel of a spaceship with eyeballs made of lasers and nanobots! Because he is the king of sci-fi. Yes, he is.
"Glimmer," which is slated to start filming in January 2014, tells the story of several time-traveling teenagers who majorly screw things up for themselves when they change the course of history during one of their trips to the past. (Ugh, the butterfly effect—the worst, amirite?) And for Dylan, who's only just making the jump to feature films after his breakout role on "Teen Wolf," snagging the lead could be just the ticket to positioning himself as the next big thing in legit sci-fi action heroes...which is good, because Tom Cruise isn't going to be around forever, you know.
FROM SPLASH PAGE: Jennifer Lawrence spent the weekend ruling the red carpets at the Cannes International Film Festival, where she was joined by "Catching Fire" co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Sam Claflin in support of their upcoming release. But today, it was back to business as usual (sort of), as the 22-year-old got in a blue mood to reprise her role as Mystique in "X-Men: Days of Future Past."
Director Bryan Singer tweeted an image from set of Jennifer all suited up (yep, it's a suit this time!), and she's lookin' good!
Head on over to Splash Page for the full (blue) reveal!
Today in bloody good news: The roster for St. Vladimir's is filling out oh so nicely, with a bevy of new casting announcements for "Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters"!
Deadline reports that the film adaptation of Richelle Mead's six-book series has added four new actors to its ensemble: Sarah Hyland, Gabriel Byrne, Joely Richardson and Dominic Sherwood.
Sarah, who's best known for her work on "Modern Family," is playing a supporting role as Natalie, friend to main characters Lissa and Rose. Also matriculating at St. Vlad's: Dominic, a relative newcomer to Hollywood who plays Lissa's romantic interest, the Moroi vampire Christian. Meanwhile, Gabriel will be filling the film's "sexy professor" void as Natalie's father and Academy leader Victor, and Joely—who we recently saw as an elusive Swede in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"—has been cast as Tatiana, queen of the Moroi vampires.
With "The Bling Ring" making its debut at the Cannes Film Festival this week, critics are already weighing in with their thoughts on the Sofia Coppola-directed drama, which stars Emma Watson. But we'd like to submit that this is really the only review that matters:
As you likely know, Paris Hilton was among those robbed by the young bandits who inspired the film. The heiress also makes a cameo appearance in the movie.
With "The Bling Ring" opening next month and "Noah" not hitting theaters until March 2014, it may be awhile until we see Emma Watson in full-on celebrity covergirl mode again—but if she is planning a hiatus from the public eye, this isn't a bad note to go out on! Emma is front and center next month in the very sophisticated W magazine, where she's styled to the max like a noir femme fatale and talking with typical seriousness about her career.
By now, Emma has a well-earned reputation for being thoughtful, down-to-earth and very careful about how much she reveals of her private life. Which, according to her, has pretty much always been the case.
May the mascara be ever in your favor?
If you want to replicate the crazybananapants looks of the Capitol's classiest citizens, you need look no further than your corner drugstore. Lionsgate and CoverGirl announced today that "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" and the venerable makeup brand are entering into the most beautiful of alliances.
Check it: Not only were CoverGirl cosmetics used on set to create eye-popping Panem peepers and pouts, but the brand is launching a line called—fittingly—the Capitol Collection, sometime this fall.
After a super-successful Kickstarter campaign, a "Veronica Mars" movie is finally heading into production, and one of the series' stars, Chris Lowell, promises that however it manifests on screen, it won’t disappoint fans still loyal years after the show wrapped production in 2007.
"I think [show creator] Rob [Thomas is] gonna give the fans exactly the movie that they have paid for, literally," Chris told Hollywood Crush earlier this week. Mere hours after the Kickstarter campaign was launched back in March, it amassed $2 million and has since raised over $5.7 million. The movie adaptation of the cult-loved TV series is slated to begin production this summer.
Everyone who's anyone in Hollywood is currently in attendance across the pond at the Cannes Film Festival, which means that a) the wires are lighting up all day long with breezy, beautiful shots of various celebs chilling in the south of France, and b) we've spent all morning trying to make ourselves feel better about not being among them by eating an entire jar of Nutella whilst wearing a beret. (Except, ugh, it's not working and there's Nutella everywhere.) But we're still psyched to see this set of pics featuring the cast of "The Bling Ring," which is making a splash at the festival this year as the opening film in Un Certain Regard!
Emma Watson, Taissa Farmiga, and the other fresh young things from Sofia Coppola's latest were out and about for a photocall earlier today, all looking très chic indeed.
Emma was a stunner in a luxe burgundy dress with funky fringey details down the skirt and at the waist, while co-star Claire Jullen went for a summery vibe in white crochet. And throwing down for menswear was Israel Broussard, who adventurously layered up in a baby blue suit, space-dyed sweater and aqua dress shirt. The only look we aren't crazy about: Taissa's white dress, with its black sash and long mesh sleeves. Not that there's anything wrong with it, exactly, but we know from recent experience that she can do so much better.
FROM MTV MOVIES BLOG You'd think with all those brains they're constantly munching, zombies would be a little, well, smarter. I mean, why can't they speak? Are their palates and tongues too far decomposed? And why do I care so much? This is all really just to say that we have an EXCLUSIVE featurette from the forthcoming "Warm Bodies" DVD/Blu-ray (out June 4), in which stars Nicholas Hoult and Rob Corddry do a lot of not talking.
Click play on the clip above to watch all the grunting and groaning for yourself, plus hear commentary from Nicholas (yes, he does speak in real life!).
Is it getting hot in here? A month to the day after "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" trailer blazed at the MTV Movie Awards, a new poster for the dystopian sequel is burning up the internet (via The Hunger Games Instagram).
The one-sheet depicts Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) on the edge of a precipice (metaphor!), with signature bow and arrow in hand and a fluffy Mockingjay-shaped cloud at her back. The tagline atop the poster reads: "The sun persists in rising, so I make myself stand."
