The second song off The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 soundtrack just dropped and once again it features Lorde, albeit in a minor capacity. Still, someone’s using their position as soundtrack curator to their benefit ;)

The “Royals” singer previously stated she’d be rounding up artists who we haven’t heard from in a while. That certainly doesn’t apply to R&B sensation Miguel but does with The Chemical Brothers. The British duo haven’t released any material since 2010. Welcome back!!!

Like “Yellow Flicker Beat,” “This Is Not A Game” is another gloomy dark track perfectly suited for the popular film franchise. As expected, Miguel’s vocals are absolutely sublime and fantastic. Lorde sprinkles a few “there it is…” throughout the song. Give it a listen below.

Hollywood studio network execs are really grasping at straws these days. Has everyone’s creative juices run dry? On the heels of Rush Hour, Big, Monster-In-Law, Minority Report, Problem Child, In Good Company and The Illusionist comes another movie being adapted for television.

Marley & Me which co-starred Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston is the latest to get second life on the small screen. The 2008 canine comedy-drama lands at NBC which has given the project a pilot commitment. Emmy-winning Sex And The City alumna Jenny Bicks will write the script for the single-camera comedy. The film grossed $243 million worldwide.

in-the-heart-of-the-sea-trailer

Several attempts to adapt Nathaniel Philbrick’s novel, In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex, to the big screen have been made since it won the National Book Award in 2000. Ron Howard finally got the job done. Give it up to Opie!!!

The prolific director takes the real-life story of men aboard the 19th century whale ship Essex to epic heights. Their harrowing journey includes an encounter with a giant sperm whale, being shipwrecked and their tale of survival which includes cannibalism. Their experiences would later become the inspiration for Moby Dick.

Howard reunites with Chris Hemsworth for the big screen adaptation. The two previously worked on Rush. Cillian Murphy, Ben Whishaw, Benjamin Walker and Charlotte Riley also star in the film. In The Heart of the Sea opens in March 2015. Watch the first trailer below.

katniss-district-12-teaser

The Quarter Quell mentally destroyed Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence). Even though Plutarch (Philip Seymour Hoffman) doesn’t think she can handle it, the rebellion sends her back to District 12 to witness her home in ruins. The Capitol destroyed it in retaliation for Katniss’ actions during the games. Naturally, this reignites our beloved heroine’s fighting spirit.

The new teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 was released to promote ticket presales available October 29. It features Lorde’s “Yellow Flicker Beat” playing in the background. The somber track fits perfectly with the visual. This bodes well for the movie soundtrack which was curated by the Kiwi singer. She enlisted artists such as Grace Jones, Diplo, Charli XCX and The Lumineers to contribute.

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

Neil Patrick Harris Hosting 87th Academy Awards

Someone has graduated to the big leagues. After hosting the Tony Awards and Emmy Awards previously, the 41-year-old actor has been tapped to host the 87th annual Academy Awards. The perfect man for the job if you ask me.

If sometime in the future, Neil Patrick Harris is asked to host the Grammys, he could be the first person to have a hosting EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscars and Tony) to his credit. It’s rare for a performer to win each of those statues, but hosting all events has never been done. If anyone can do it, it’s Harris.

The How I Met Your Mother actor takes over Ellen DeGeneres who hosted last year’s event which was seen by 43 million viewers. It saw ratings rise 6%, becoming the most-watched entertainment broadcast in 10 years. Can he topped those numbers? More importantly, can he outdo DeGeneres’ epic selfie pic?

Neil Meron and Craig Zadan have been recruited to produce the Oscars for the third year in a row. The annual extravaganza will take place Sunday, February 22, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Do you think NPH is a great choice to host the event? He has a very similar hosting style to Hugh Jackman. I fully expect an extremely gay-centric production. I.CANT.WAIT!!! Watch his video announcement below and weigh in afterward.

dc-comics-feature-films

Several months ago, Warner Bros. revealed a plan to release ten DC Comics films over the next few years. During an investor conference today, the studio revealed the titles of the movies and some previously unconfirmed casting. It’s definitely an ambitious endeavor with a couple years having three major releases.

Not surprisingly, a Wonder Woman film is in the works given that the studio recently revealed her origin story of being Zeus’ daughter. Also in the mix is a Guardians of the Galaxy-like film featuring a band of imprisoned supervillains named Suicide Squad. There’s even another Green Lantern film scheduled for 2020. I highly doubt Ryan Reynolds will return to play the superhero.

Along with the ten films announced, standalone films for Superman and Batman are in the works. Yup, Ben Affleck will headline his own superhero film. Let’s hope this one fares better than Daredevil. Check out the titles below, along with some of the stars playing them.

Hollywood sure does love to recycle. Reboots, remakes and adaptations are all the rage these days. Several films are currently being developing into possible television series. Some examples include projects based on Rush Hour, Mortal Instruments, Guardians Of The Galaxy and Resident Evil.

Cameron Crowe’s Say Anything was also on the docket but was nixed after both Crowe and star John Cusack blasted it via Twitter. Now comes word that the romantic comedy Monster In Law starring Jennifer Lopez and Jane Fonda is the latest feature film possibly headed to the small screen in the near future.
