The number 1 film this weekend is Lucy (read our review) with $44 million. The premise might be extremely far fetched, but something about this unconventional sci-fi flick from director Luc Besson (La Femme Nikita, The Professional) struck a chord with audiences.

Chris Evans on the VOD Release of 'Snowpiercer': 'I Absolutely Think the Movie Should Be Seen on the Big Screen'

fb.indiewire.com – Chris Evans and “Snowpiercer” are a perfect fit. Not only in that the steel-eyed American oozes the ideal blend of rebellious survivor and reluctant leader for Bong Joon-ho’s indie epic, but because the two actually reflect the best parts of one another. "Snowpiercer" is an ambitious indie in need of an talented, title-topping actor to boost its awareness, and Evans is both the man they need and someone who wants to make more movies just like this one. 18 hours 2 min ago via jetli

Gareth Edwards Confirmed For ‘Godzilla 2’; New Monsters For Sequel Revealed Below is some news Gareth Edwards fans probably already know, but if you’re just a casual moviegoer, you may not even recognize his name. Edwards is the director of Legendary Pictures’ “Godzilla,” a movie that almost grossed $500 million worldwide and should probably crack that number when all is said and done (the movie is teetering just on the edge of hitting $200 million at home as well). This is an astonishing feat if you consider the only feature Edwards had made before this was the low-budget “Monsters,” which made all of $237,301 in 2010.

SDCC '14: New Trailer For CONSTANTINE; 'Papa Midnite' And More Confirmed For Season One There's some great new footage featured in the latest trailer for Constantine, though a lot of it might be familiar if you managed to get your hands on a copy of the recently leaked pilot episode. However, we also get to see some scenes here which are NOT from that first instalment, so it's well worth watching either way. In related news, David S. Goyer told IGN TV that Papa Midnite and the Newcastle Crew will both be making their way into this season at some point, and they're not the only familiar faces who will be popping up.

The Maze Runner
At WonderCon, I met the Maze Runner cast and crew, stars Dylan O'Brien and Will Poulter, author James Dashner and director Wes Ball. Comic-Con was the first time I got to meet Kaya Scodelario.

Sound Off: Johansson in Luc Besson's 'Lucy' - What Did You Think? Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Imagine what she could do with 100%. Now in theaters is Luc Besson's Lucy, starring Scarlett Johansson as Lucy, a woman caught in a dark deal who ends up gaining incredible powers when a drug gives her 100% brain capacity superpowers. Morgan Freeman also co-stars as a Professor explaining what's going on with her, and how/why she's gaining these powers. Choi Min-sik, Amr Waked, Julian Rhind-Tutt and Pilou Asbæk are also in the sci-fi action movie. Is it any good? Did Luc Besson get his groove back?
