If you are a die-hard ‘Avengers’ or ‘Hunger Games’ fan, then you will love Sesame Street‘s take on two of the highest-grossing films of the year. Cookie monster and Grover crack all sorts of jokes about the two films in their movie musical. Head over to EW.com to watch the ridiculously funny skit.
We all remember Jennifer Lawrence from her movie debut in The Hunger Games. This time around, she will be taking on a scary role in the upcoming film, House at the End of the Street.
Lawrence will reveal a darker, scarier side of her in order to escape the Katniss Everdeen role that everyone is familiar with.
The movie tells the story of a family that moves next door to a house that has dark history. Jennifer Lawrence plays the role of Elissa, who’s mother warns her not to associate with the inhabitant of the house that was once a murder scene. She soon becomes involved in solving the murder mystery, while avoiding becoming the next victim.
The film hits theaters nationwide September 21.
A writer has finally been chosen for Scorsese’s Frank Sinatra movie. The Hunger Games screenwriter Billy Ray has been selected to “be a part of it.”
Scorsese is still undecided about who will play the lead role of Frank Sinatra. Leonardo DiCaprio was originally a prospect for the role, however; the duo chose to work together on The Wolf of Wall Street instead.
According to Deadline.com, Phil Alden Robinson was originally chosen to work on the screenplay for the movie. The Universal Pictures film about the talented singer is still in the very early stages, as Scorsese still has a few projects to get through before he flies us to the moon.
It takes a strong character in Hollywood to say no to the stunt double option. I guess that’s why Kristen Stewart and Tom Cruise made our list of celebs that like to get down and dirty when it comes to stunts on the big screen.
Kristen recently admitted that she got thrown around a bit on the set of Snow White and the Huntsman.
“Director Rupert Sanders beat me up. He definitely threw me off cliffs and made me trudge through frigid, icy waters. It looks so cool, though. I can actually see the pain and discomfort on my face. It’s awesome,” Stewart revealed.
Most celebrities that perform their own stunts agree that the quality and authenticity of the scenes are very self-rewarding. More stars are opting-out of having a stunt double, as the shots are more realistic.
Below are a few actors that perform their own stunts:
1. Think Like a Man – $12.2 million
2. The Lucky One – $9.13 million
3. The Hunger Games – $4 million
Not many could have predicted it, but ‘Think Like a Man’ is the movie to officially put an end to ‘The Hunger Games’ four-week reign at the top of the box office.
The adaptation of Steve Harvey’s self-help book “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man” took first place Friday with a unexpected $12.2 million opening. That’s a higher start than nearly all comparable films. It even beat out other Tyler Perry movies with the exception of ‘Madea Goes to Jail’, and it scored the highest opening ever for a film geared towards African-American audiences.
‘The Lucky One’ took second place. That’s the second-highest opening day for a Nicholas Sparks adaptation behind ‘Dear John’ ($13.8 million). Surprisingly, the movie also sold significantly more tickets than female favorite ‘The Notebook’ with Ryan Gosling.
