J.K. Rowling and Time Warner have a pretty good relationship. Together, they helped make one of the most successful and impressively coherent film franchises in history with Harry Potter. So it’s of little surprise Rowling turned in their direction when looking for a place to air her follow up novel, The Casual Vacancy, as a miniseries. BBC and HBO will co-produce a three episode miniseries of The Casual Vacancy, which will air on BBC One in the UK and HBO in the US.

You may have heard that Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf Of Wall Street holds the record for the most F-bombs in a narrative feature film (the documentary “Fuck” obviously wins the all time record). ScreenJunkies decided to create a two-and-a-half minute cut of the film featuring only the F words said in the movie. But those jokers decided to focus on some of the less obvious f-words in the film, and not feature any of the movie’s record-breaking 506 F-bombs.

Some early storyboards from the 1977 classic have made their way online and these rough sketches paint a very different portrait of some of your favorite heroes and villains in the 'Star Wars' universe.

Everyone in Hollywood loves sequels. Except Disney Animation. While their partners at Pixar have had no trouble coming up with worthy follow-ups to some of their biggest films, most all of the classic Disney animated films never got theatrical sequels. Even with that fact stated, it’s still a bit of a surprise to hear Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn admit the company hasn’t even begun to think about a sequel to their biggest animated film of all time, Frozen. The Hollywood Reporter and others wrote about Horn’s recent, revealing discussion with Bloomburg TV.

Following their tasty, international comedy The Trip in 2010, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are back for seconds with The Trip to Italy. The comedy sequel debuted at Sundance earlier this year, and is already airing for our friends across the pond on BBC. But here in the United States, the film will hit theaters sometime this year, and the first trailer has arrived to show off more fantastic impressions, in depth discussions on particular music, and in a bit of meta writing, the merit of sequels.
Shooting on George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” began in the summer of 2012 and the film isn’t coming out until summer 2015. That’s, ahem, a long frickin’ road to a movie (as well as one that opens only two weeks after “Avengers: Age of Ultron”). By all accounts it is an expensive and highly ambitious picture, utilizing a lot of practical effects, cars and stunts and little CGI. But perhaps ‘Fury Road’ took so long for myriad other reasons. You’ll recall as soon as it started shooting, reps from Warner Bros.

Director Quentin Tarantino is reportedly not able to sue Gawker for linking to a copy of his unproduced screenplay The Hateful Eight on their site. But, Tarantino can refile the case if he makes some changes. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a California judge has dismissed the copyright infringement lawsuit that had Tarantino suing Gawker over sharing his screenplay online. Gawker had “encouraged its reader to ‘enjoy’ reading the script,” says THR, prompting Tarantino to shelf the project, in light of the draft’s leak online.

Except for Johnny Depp, there wasn't much to laugh about at the box office last weekend — or the one before that, or the one before that, either. That's because other than animated fare and Wes Anderson's quirky “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” a comedy movie hasn't connected at the box office since “Ride Along,” and that came out in January.
Moviegoers who are slaves to genre aren't going to have much love for the legitimately out-of-control “Miss Meadows." This whatsit begins with a prim and proper maiden talking to CGI squirrels and birds before firing a pistol into the throat of an obvious sex offender in the middle of a sunny suburban street. The victim isn't sleazy enough to be funny, the violence is too glib to be serious, and there's, overall, a jarring divide occurring here.

For his first directing gig, Roberto Orci wants Stars Trek 3 – an ambitious choice for someone who’s never actually helmed a movie before. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have any experience.

In fact, they now live in a rather begrimed apartment and the realities of everyday life have hit them hard.
