Another day, another film adaptation of a popular young adult novel set in a dystopian society. On the heels of The Maze Runner comes the Weinstein Company’s The Giver. The film is based on Lois Lowry’s beloved young adult novel of the same name, which was the winner the 1994 Newbury Medal and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide. After spending more than 15 years in development hell, the feature film adaptation is here and with a stellar cast.

The haunting story of THE GIVER centers on Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community.

Future cinematic superstar Brenton Thwaites tackles the role of Jonas with Alexander Skarsgard and Katie Holmes playing his parents. Meryl Streep gets her evil on as the Chief Elder. “When people have the freedom to choose, they choose wrong,” she warns. Taylor Swift becomes a brunette to portray Rosemary, The Giver’s daughter. Check out the first trailer for The Giver below. It opens in August.

Disney Finally Announces The Incredibles 2 Is Coming

It’s news fans have been waiting for since 2004. Disney executives announced the long-awaited sequel for The Incredibles during the company’s shareholders meeting in Portland, Oregon. Other than that, very few details were released. Last summer, director Brad Bird talked about the potential sequel.

“People think that I have not been [thinking about 'The Incredibles 2'], but I have. Because I love those characters and love that world. I am stroking my chin and scratching my head. I have many, many elements that I think would work really well in another film, and if I can get ‘em to click all together, I would probably wanna do that.”

To tide moviegoers until that time, the studio announced plans to re-release the original Incredibles animated film in 3D, much like how they reformatted Pixar’s Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc. and Finding Nemo. Ratatouille is also getting a 3D makeover.

the-maze-runner-trailer

Get ready for another movie franchise featuring a dystopian society with photogenic young adults. The latest novel series to receive a movie adaptation comes from author James Dashner, titled The Maze Runner.

Dylan O’Brien plays a boy named Thomas who finds himself waking up in a lift that takes him to a gigantic maze. The Teen Wolf actor can’t remember why he’s there. In fact, the only thing he can recall is his name. He’s joined in the enormous labyrinth by other boys who also can’t remember anything prior to being transplanted to the mysterious place called The Glade.

Every day, some of the kids venture into the giant maze trying to map the ever-changing pattern of walls in hopes of eventually finding an exit. The society of boys is thrown a curve ball when a girl shows up in the lift. To everyone’s surprise, she calls Thomas by his name and is the only who can recall her past. Skins actress Kaya Scoldelario plays the lone girl named Teresa.

Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Love Actually), Will Poulter (We’re The Millers), Jacob Latimore (Black Nativity) and Patricia Clarkson round out the cast. The Maze Runner hits theaters on September 19, 2014. Check out the first trailer below.

angelina-jolie-malificent

It’s a bird…It’s a plane…It’s Superman. Correction, it’s actually Angelina Jolie looking gloriously evil as Malificent. In a new clip released by Disney, Malificent reveals she once had wings, expansive angelic black ones at that.

“I had wings once. And they were strong, but they were stolen from me.” – Maleficent

I can’t wait to learn the film’s revisionist take on exactly what in the sorceress’ life caused her to walk down a vengeful path. Watch Angelina swoop down in all her ferocious glory below. She’s far more intimidating than any other Disney villain to date. Maleficent is set for a May 30 release.

cam-gigandet-bad-johnson

Any role that requires Cam Gigandet to take his clothes off often is fine by me. I’ve had a crush on him since he played bad boy Kevin Volchok on The O.C.. The concept of his new film is so absolutely ridiculous that it has the potential to be wickedly awesome.

In the vein of body switching films like Freaky Friday, Big, 13 Going on 30 and so forth, Bad Johnson takes a sexy spin on the genre. Rich Johnson (Gigandet) cheats on women so much that it’s ruining his life. One night he wishes that his penis would leave him alone. Be careful what you wish for. The next morning he’s as anatomically correct as a Ken doll. What’s worse is that his dick is now taken a human form played by Nick Thune.

Jamie Chung and Katherine Cunningham round out the cast. Bad Johnson will hit VOD on April 1 and theaters on May 2. Check out the trailer below. I hope a red band version is coming soon.

oculus-movie-trailer

What’s catoptrophobia? It’s the fear of mirrors, silly ;) From the people who brought you Paranormal Activity and Insidious comes another equally horrifying flick titled Oculus. After watching the trailer, I’m already wary about checking out myself in the mirror. I can’t even imagine how much more freaked out I would be if watch the entire film because holy crap does it look ever scary.

Oculus stars Battlestar Galactica‘s Katee Sackhoff, Malificient‘s Brenton Thwaites, Doctor Who‘s Karen Gillan and One Tree Hill‘s James Lafferty. The film hits theaters on April 11. Check out the creepy trailer below.

Movie Synopsis

Two siblings haunted by a childhood tragedy learn that the source of their horror is a mysterious mirror with a dark history. Tim (Thwaites) and Kaylie (Gillan) were merely teenagers when both of their parents were brutally butchered. Convicted of the killings and sentenced to protective custody, Tim serves his time while Kaylie drifts into a deep despair. Years later, a newly free Tim does his best to lay the past to rest. Meanwhile, Kaylie is certain that her brother was innocent all along, and that the antique mirror their parents used to own holds the answer to her darkest questions. Upon locating the long-lost looking glass, Kaylie’s deepest fears are confirmed — a menacing force inhabits that mirror, and it has plagued every owner who has come into possession of it. Now, as curious Kaylie reacquires the mirror, the nightmarish cycle of horror returns with a vengeance.

mark-wahlberg-mtv-lifetime-achievement-award

At the ripe old age of 42, Mark Wahlberg is getting MTV’s equivalent of a Lifetime Achievement Award at the upcoming 23rd annual MTV Movie Awards. To be fair, anyone over the age of 30 is ancient by the network’s standards. Previous recipients of the MTV Generation Award include Jamie Foxx, Johnny Depp, Reese Witherspoon, Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Sandra Bullock, Mike Myers, Tom Cruise and Jim Carrey.

“Mark Wahlberg is the definition of a modern day Renaissance Man: from Dirk Diggler to The Departed, The Basketball Diaries to Ted, Entourage to The Fighter, in front of the camera and behind — he’s done it all and he’s always memorable,” said Stephen Friedman, President of MTV. “Mark has captivated the MTV audience for over 20 years, and for this rare feat, we’re proud to recognize him with this year’s Generation Award.”

The cast of Entourage will be on hand to present the award to Mark. The series is loosely based on his experience as an up-and-coming actor. This will mark the first time Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon and Jerry Ferrara will be together since the HBO series ended. No doubt, they’ll be there to promote the movie version of Entourage which is scheduled to hit theaters in June 2015.
