    It's been one of the most sought-after roles in recent Hollywood casting history, one that names like Armie Hammer, Taylor Kitsch, Garret Hedlund and even Robert Pattinson were (mostly erroneously) linked to. And after several months, it's finally been filled, with Lionsgate announcing via a press r...

    But Of Course: 'Snow White And The Huntsman' Is The First Of A Planned Trilogy

    There are many arguments to be made that "Star Wars" ruined the movies, but one of the more persuasive is the way that it popularized the idea of the trilogy. George Lucas didn't invent the concept (that would have been the Ancient Greeks, thank you), but by making both the original films and the prequels, he popularized the concept, ensuring that almost any hit film would be intended as only the first part of three films, each one bigger than the last. And to a degree, it makes sense: it mirrors the three act structure that virtually every screenplay uses as a template, enabling a complete story with ups and downs to be told over a longer r...

    'Pirates 4' Star Sam Clafin & Newcomer Alicia Vikander Win Leads In 'The Seventh Son'

    For the most part, the spate in recent years of teen-targeting franchises based on successful young adult novels have left us pretty cold. There've been a few gems ("Bridge to Terabithia," "The Spiderwick Chronicles"), but generally speaking we've found little to like in the "Twilight"s or "Percy Ja...
