2015-cecil-b-demille-award

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Monday that George Clooney will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 2015 Golden Globes. Association president Theo Kingma cites Clooney’s achievements on both sides of the camera and his humanitarian efforts around the world as to why he was chosen. The award is given annually to an individual who’s made “an incredible impact on the world of entertainment.”

Previous honorees include Jodie Foster, Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro, Martin Scorsese, and Steven Spielberg. Last year, Woody Allen won the prestigious prize but didn’t show up to accept the lifetime achievement award. Don’t expect the same thing to happen this year. You just know Clooney will be there looking fine with his future wife Amal Alamuddin along his side. At age 53, Clooney is one of the younger recipients, tying Robin Williams as the tenth youngest.

Clooney has two Oscars and four Golden Globes to his credit. The 72nd Golden Globe Awards will be held on January 11, 2015 and will be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler once again. Do you think Clooney has done enough to earn the honor? Weigh in below.

I Know What You Did Last Summer Reboot In The Works

In: Donovan, Movies
i-know-what-did-last-summer-reboot

The 90s revival is still going strong and shows no signs of slowing down. Like so many horror franchises before it, I Know What You Did Last Summer is about to be resurrected.

The original released in 1997 grossed $125 million worldwide and spawned two sequels- the theatrical I Still Know What You Did Last Summer and direct-to-video I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer. Did anyone see the latter one?

The film starred Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ryan Phillippe, and soon to be married couple Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. Anyone else remember Phillippe’s memorable shower scene. I instantly fell in lust with him at that moment. SWOON!!! Its sequel featured Brandy Norwood and Mekhi Phifer.

Deadline.com reports Mike Flanagan (Oculus) will write and produce the reboot. Like the original film, it will be based on a 1973 novel by Lois Duncan. It is expected to be rushed into production to be released in 2016.

Excited for this reboot? Which young Hollywood actors would you cast? Hopefully, some of the original stars make cameos in the film. Relive Philippe’s shower scene below, along with the original trailer for the 1997 horror film.

After numerous promo posters and teaser vids, the first full-length trailer is finally. “It’s the things we love most, that destroy us,” President Snow warns Katniss Everdeen. With Peeta now brainwashed and acting as his mouthpiece, Katniss is on a mission to save him before acting out the rebellion’s wishes.

Movie Synopsis

The worldwide phenomenon of The Hunger Games continues to set the world on fire with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which finds Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in District 13 after she literally shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin (Julianne Moore) and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a nation moved by her courage.

The sequel picks up where last year’s Catching Fire left off with Everdeen now the official symbol of a mass rebellion against the Capitol. Julianne Moore and Game of Thrones Natalie Dormer join the cast as President Snow’s rival (President Coin) and Capitol rebel Cressida respectively. Philip Seymour Hoffman returns in one of his last roles before his death. Meanwhile, Lorde joins the franchise by curating the entire soundtrack.

Check out the trailer below. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 opens November 21.

Sounds like a comedy, doesn’t it? Shockingly, it’s not. LOL.

Remember Keanu Reeves’ last hit? I don’t. His last film 47 Ronin bombed big time at the box office. Fingers crossed he has a reversal of fortune with John Wick.

The 50-year-old actor plays an ex-hitman. He comes out of retirement when thugs steal his Mustang and kill his dog. OH HELL NO!!! Don’t they know who they’re messing with. Dude has saved a bus from some maniacal fool.

Rounding out the cast are Ian McShane, Willem Dafoe, John Leguizamo, and Adrianne Palicki. John Wick opens on October 24. Check out the trailer below.

After playing Captain America in a couple superhero flicks, Chris Evans returns to the romantic comedy genre. The 33-year-old plays a struggling screenwriter who sells out to write a rom-com to boost his career. Problem is, he doesn’t believe in love. At least the cheesy ones often portrayed. #typicalromcomobstacle

Along the way, he finds himself falling in love with Michelle Monaghan. Catch is, she’s about to walk down the aisle with some other man. #secondtypicalromcomobstacle. Can men and women just be friends? #thirdtypicalromcomobstacle

Aubrey Plaza, Anthony Mackie, Topher Grace, Luke Wilson and Giovanni Ribisi round out the cast. Watch the cute, albeit cliche, trailer below. As of yet, Playing It Cool doesn’t have a release date yet.

Movie Synopsis

This is the story of ME (Evans), a young man disillusioned by love, who meets a breathtaking young woman, HER (Monaghan), at a charity dinner by pretending to be a philanthropist. Only one problem: she’s engaged. Yet, he engages into a platonic relationship to be able to keep seeing her. Like a young Walter Mitty using the power of imagination and wild vignettes, HE will stop at nothing to conquer HER heart.

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper are today’s answer to Bogart and Bacall. The two have undeniable chemistry and whenever they team up, magic occurs.

Their previous two collaborations, Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, both scored Best Picture Oscar nods and acting nominations for each. Lawrence walked away with the Best Actress Oscar statue for the former. This Fall, the two star in their third film, the first without David O. Russell directing them together. That honor goes to Susanne Bier.

Serena is based on Ron Rash’s 2008 novel of the same name. J. Law and Bradley play newlyweds heading to North Caolina to build a timber empire in the 1930s. Serena (Lawrence) eventually learns she can’t conceive children, and quickly becomes obsessed with George’s (Cooper) relationship with his illegitimate son.

Angelina Jolie was originally slated to play Serena when Darren Aronofsky was attached to direct. The film is set to premiere at the London Film Festival. Rhys Ifans and Sean Harris round out the cast. Check out the trailer below.
