This isn’t your friendly Lucky Charms Leprechaun. Director Zach Lipovsky reboots the horror film franchise this Summer with WWE Wrestler Dylan Postl aka Hornswoggle as the titular murderous leprechaun Lubdan. He promises a much more sinisterly evil villain.

Leprechaun: Origins follows two young couples backpacking through the Irish countryside. They “quickly discover the idyllic land is not what it appears to be be when [a] town’s residents offer the hikers an old cabin at the edge of the woods. Soon, the friends will find that one of Ireland’s most famous legends is a terrifying reality,” according to the official synopsis.

The seventh Leprechaun movie will be available on Digital HD, Video On Demand, and Pay-Per-View on Aug. 26. The original starred future Friends star Jennifer Aniston. Leprechaun: Origins stars Stephanie Bennett (Grave Encounters 2), Andrew Dunbar (Alien Trespass), Melissa Roxburgh (Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days) and Brendan Fletcher (Freddy vs Jason). Check out the trailer below.

The Fault In Our Stars is the latest YA adaptation success story. John Green’s young adult novel about teenage cancer patients opened massively with $48.2 million to take this weekend’s box office crown. Women made up a staggering 82 percent of the audience. This is Shailene Woodley’s second hit movie this year. She also fronted another YA adaptation, Divergent, to box office glory. That film opened with $56 million but also cost plenty more to produce.

Tom Cruise’s latest sci-fi flick Edge of Tomorrow disappointed despite earning good revivews. The action film opened with $29.1 million, about $8 million less than his similarly-themed Oblivion which opened last year. Overseas however the film did quite well. It took the No. 1 spot with $82 million.

Dropping a notch to second place was Maleficent. The Angelina Jolie starrer dropped only 52 percent, adding another $33.5 million to its haul. However, it’s lagging a bit behind Disney’s previous reboots Alice In Wonderland and Oz: The Great and Powerful. Check out the rest of the Top 10 below.

Did you see his pathetic first pitch at a recent Mets game which he blamed on excess masturbation (LOL)? 50 Cent may not have a future as a professional baseball player, but he’s pretty darn good playing an evil queen.

During a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the rapper donned horns to parody Disney’s massive hit Maleficent. Angelina Jolie better watch out. She’s got some competition. Check out 50 Cent as MaleFiftyCent below. It’s pretty hilarious.

Movie Review: The Fault In Our Stars

In: Matt, Movies
the-fault-in-our-stars-movie-review

SPOILER ALERT: There will be tears. If you’re looking for a good cry, or a powerfully beautiful teen romance without the typical Hollywood clichés then I highly recommend you see this movie.

The Fault in our Stars is directed by Josh Boone and is based on the novel by John Green. It tells the story of Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley) who is terminally ill with thyroid cancer that has spread to her lungs. A smart, witty and resilient girl, Hazel is taking her life one step at a time, just trying to make it to the next day. Not looking to far into the future, Hazel is blindsided when she meets Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort) who sweeps her off her feet in a way she describes as akin to falling asleep. “First slowly and then all at once.” Gus is also a cancer patient, having lost one of his legs to osteosarcoma. He is painfully sweet, handsome and irresistibly charming so much so that some may find his relentless optimism and unwavering positivity, coupled with his selflessness and utter devotion to Hazel a bit too far fetched and even slightly annoying. If the film has one fault (pun intended), it’s that Augustus’s character is a bit unrealistic as seen by the trip he takes Hazel and her mother on so that she may meet her favorite author.

It must be a rite of passage for hunky male actors in Hollywood to star in at least one Nicholas Sparks movie. James Marsden follows in the footsteps of Josh Duhamel, Ryan Gosling, Channing Tatum, Zac Efron and Liam Hemsworth to name a few. Paul Walker was set to join that illustrious group but tragically passed away. Enter Marsden.

Like many of Sparks’ tearjerkers, this one incorporates plenty of flashbacks. Playing the younger Marsden is Luke Bracey. Starring as his highschool sweetheart are Michelle Monaghan and Liana Liberato as the elder and younger versions respectively. The Best of Me hits theater on October 17. Check out the trailer below.

Official Synopsis

Based on the bestselling novel by acclaimed author Nicholas Sparks, The Best of Me tells the story of Dawson and Amanda, two former high school sweethearts who find themselves reunited after 20 years apart, when they return to their small town for the funeral of a beloved friend. Their bittersweet reunion reignites the love they’ve never forgotten, but soon they discover the forces that drove them apart twenty years ago live on, posing even more serious threats today. Spanning decades, this epic love story captures the enduring power of our first true love, and the wrenching choices we face when confronted with elusive second chances.

It’s a tale as old as time and Walt Disney is planning on telling it again.

Variety is reporting that the studio is planning a live action adaptation of their 1991 animated hit. No word if the film will be a musical but with Bill Condon reportedly on board, it would seem that way. Though he’s best known for his work on the last two Twilight films, Condon also worked on the hit musical Dreamgirls starring Jennifer Hudson. Evan Spiliotopoulos is writing the script with Mandeville Films producing.

Naomi Watts Joins Divergent Franchise

Have you read the Divergent books? Who did you picture playing Evelyn, leader of the Factionless? If Naomi Watts was on your list, you’re in luck. The 45-year-old Aussie has been tapped to join the Divergent franchise. She’ll appear in the next film, Insurgent, along with the final chapter Allegiant which will be split into two parts. I really hate how Lionsgate does that with all their franchises.

Watts joins Octavia Spencer as new additions to the cast. Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ansel Elgort, Kate Winslet and Miles Teller who all appeared in Divergent will return for the sequel which began shooting in Atlanta last week. You excited for Watt’s addition? Sound off below.

Has everyone seen Maleficent yet? What a let down. Fortunately there are a ton of great films to check out this month that will make up for that 2 hour nap I took. No beef with Angelina, she was flawless but the rest of the movie was. Just. So. Boring.

We’ve got a mixed bag again this month with an animated film, a musical, a drama, an action and a thriller. I’m seriously excited about each and every one of these movies so it looks like I;’ll be hitting up the theatre often this month.

Check out my picks for must-see movies below!
