Disney Classics are the new black.
So 'The Jungle Book' appears to be getting good critical reception all round; and no wonder with its stunning combination of live action and CGI, not to mention a stellar voiceover cast. It's only the latest in a string of Disney Classics to be re-made though, as that beloved world is being continuously re-visited.
The Jungle Book is in theaters now
As well as 'The Jungle Book', so far we've had 'Snow White and the Huntsman', 'Maleficent', 'Cinderella', 'Hercules', 'Alice In Wonderland'... need we go on? Of course, they're not all derived from the Disney flicks - in fact, most are simply re-boots of the original tale. But there's still a lot more where that came from.

Taking some twitter tips from husband Kanye West perhaps?

Just two weeks short of her 19th birthday, Chloe Grace Moretz is entering the Young Adult genre with her film The 5th Wave
Moretz's new movie is based on the first novel in Rick Yancey's planned trilogy of books about teens facing an alien invasion. But this is a genre Moretz never really pursued.
"I enjoy books that aren't really YA (young adult) in that sense," she says, "so when I read The 5th Wave it's a very un-YA YA book. It deals with bigger problems and bigger emotions than most YA books. My favourite novel in general is Wuthering Heights!"
Chloe Grace Moretz plays the lead role of Cassie Sullivan
Continue reading: The 5th Wave Put Chloe Grace Moretz Into 'Anti-Training'
Also based on the first in a trilogy of post-apocalyptic teen novels, this thriller feels like it could be a worthy successor to The Hunger Games saga, with its smart story and strong characters. The premise feels remarkably grounded, as it follows a feisty teen while her world is turned upside down by an alien invasion. And Chloe Grace Moretz gives one of her most complex performances to date as a quick, flawed heroine.
The title refers to the stages of invasion, as unseen aliens quietly take over the planet. And then not so quietly. Most of humanity has been killed by disasters or disease, with the survivors waiting for whatever the next wave of attack might be. Before this, Cassie (Moretz) was a normal 16-year-old with a crush on the cute Ben (Nick Robinson). Now she's running for her life, trying to rescue her little brother Sam (Zackary Arthur), who has been whisked to safety by the gung-ho Colonel Vosch (Liev Schreiber) and his military resistance. Along the way, she meets farm boy Evan (Alex Roe), whom she reluctantly trusts mainly because he's such a hunk. Meanwhile, Ben finds himself in Sam's unit in the newly formed child's army Vosch is training to hunt down aliens who have taken human form.
Director Blakeson keeps the pace brisk without rushing past important details. This makes what happens feel unusually believable, and it also allows the actors to add personal touches to their performances. Moretz finds Cassie's innate courage and quick physicality, but nicely balances it with her impulsive decisions and adolescent self-doubt. As in most of these movies, she has to be in a love triangle, but her scenes with both Robinson and Roe offer something a bit more intriguing, mainly because both actors have surprises up their sleeves. There's also a fourth person in this relationship in the form of Maika Monroe's tough-girl fighter Ringer, perhaps the most intriguing character on-screen.

Mortez said her bothers faced homophobic bullying in school, after coming out as gay.
Chloë Grace Moretz has opened up to NYLON magazine about the homophobic bullying her two brothers faced growing up gay.

With two down and one to go, Keira Knightley has made a career redefining performance in 'Say When'.
Keira Knightley is having a great year, with three performances that mark a clear turn in her career. She's throwing herself into roles with a loose abandon that brings out her own sparky personality in hitherto unseen ways. After surprising everyone with her raw singing talent in 'Begin Again', she now takes on a grown-up coming-of-age role in 'Say When' (aka 'Laggies'). And her strikingly open-handed performance in 'The Imitation Game' is still to come.
Chloë Grace Moretz appears alongside Knightley in 'Say When'
Knightley broke through with her lead role in the 2002 sleeper hit 'Bend It Like Beckham', a football movie that isn't quite as good as most people remember it being. Knightley's performance is rather stiff, but she has undeniable screen charisma, which is what landed her as the heroine in the first 'Pirates of the Caribbean' trilogy. A small role in 'Love Actually' and a strangely goth action-girl Guinevere in 2004's 'King Arthur' followed, plus the first glimpse of her acting chops in John Maybury's little-seen 'The Jacket', opposite Adrien Brody.

With remakes and reboots dominating the Hollywood landscape at the moment, The Equalizer has found a new and interesting way to recreate the source material.
It's hardly surprising that filmmakers raised on TV series in the 1980s are now turning them into movies. Some of these end up as faithful adaptations (Miami Vice, The Dukes of Hazzard), while others take a more knowingly pastiche approach (Charlie's Angels, 21 Jump Street). What we haven't seen before is a film that only takes the barest hint of an idea to make a very different kind of movie. But that's exactly what's happened with The Equalizer.
Robert McCall is played by Denzel Washington in this new film
The television series ran for four seasons from 1985 to 1989, starring British actor Edward Woodward as retired intelligence officer Robert McCall, who quietly goes about helping people who are in trouble. The show's theme centres on McCall's efforts to atone for his violent past by doing good in his golden years, mainly working as an investigator or bodyguard who takes on drug dealers, murderers, rapists and kidnappers.
Continue reading: 'The Equalizer' Takes A New Approach To The Remake
Director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Olympus Has Fallen) talks about what makes The Equalizer (Denzel Washington) different from other action movie heroes. The name comes from how he spends his days as a "regular Joe", but uses hand-to-hand combat in order to fight his way through legions of bad guys "levelling the playing field". Producer Todd Black (A Knight's Tale, The Pursuit of Happiness) goes on to explain The Equalizer's skill set. He uses impeccable awareness of his surroundings to manipulate his environment into a weapon - this leads to stunt coordinator Keith Woulard discussing Washington's desire to make the fight scenes "dirty and gritty, but he want[ed] it smart".

Chloe Moretz and Jamie Blackley greet their fans on the red carpet, while Alice 2 films in London and Zac Efron is snapped on set in California. First-glimpse trailers are released for Automata, Kill the Messenger, The Best of Me and Trash...
Chloe Grace Moretz and Jamie Blackley have been out and about promoting their new teenage tearjerker If I Stay over the past week.

'If I Stay' joins the long list of weepies over the past couple of yours.
If the Twilight Saga proved anything, it's that teen girls will pay good money to be driven to tears. So this summer we have two entries into the teen-weepie genre.
Chloe Moretz in 'If I Stay'
The Fault in Our Stars has already set box office receipts spinning, raking in nearly $300 million worldwide since its release in June. It's also had a strong reception from audiences (82% positive on IMDb) and critics (80% positive on Rotten Tomatoes).

Summer’s almost over and the box office looks to go out on a whimper as ‘If I Stay’ and ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ fail to cause a bang over the weekend.
It was meant to be an end of the summer box office battle, between a tear jerking teen drama and a long waited comic book sequel. But instead, audiences have largely stayed away from theatres this weekend, rather than make the 'difficult' choice between If I Stay and Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.
Chloe Grace Moretz [L] and James Blackley [R] in 'If I Stay'
Chloe Moretz’s young adult drama, about a girl forced to choose between dying and waking up from a coma after an accident which killed her family, has won the battle taking $6.8 million on its first Friday, according to Forbes. However $6.8 million isn't really much of victory in what should have been the last big weekend of the summer season.
With controversy surrounding the Kick-Ass 1 and 2, is Kick-Ass 3 a good idea?
The Kick-Ass ultra-violence superhero series has been confused with controversy and praise, criticism and box office success since the release of its first film in 2010. Based on the comic book of the same name created by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr., the Kick-Ass series tells the story of an ordinary teenager, Dave Lizewski, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who sets out to become a real-life superhero called Kick-Ass.

Kristen Stewart has numerous movie projects lined up this year.
Kristen Stewart has turned 24 today (April 9, 2014) and the actress has a pretty big year ahead as she continues her post-Twilight movie career with a number of a hard-hitting dramas, including Clouds of Sils Maria.
Kristen Stewart Stars in 'Clouds of Sils Maria'

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa is looking surprisingly strong this weekend.
“Gravity” is a critically acclaimed space thriller starring A-listers and directed by Alfonso Cuaron. Bad Grandpa is Jackass’ newest collection of fart jokes and obvious innuendo. One of these should be a clear winner at the box office this weekend, but it might not be the one you expect. Gravity has been anchored at the top for three weeks straight, since its October 4th debut, but now the new contender looks set to knock the movie off its box office throne.
Gravity will finally lose its leadership over Halloween weekend.
Interestingly enough, Ridley Scott’s the Counselor is also in cinemas this weekend, but maybe the overall poor reviews have influenced audiences, because the film isn’t considered a contender for box office glory, according to Entertainment Weekly.
The space thriller took home nearly double that of it's closest competitor in what was a uninspired weekend at the movies
It's been three weeks since it was released to the American public, but the sci-fi thriller Gravity has stayed strong and continued to dominate the US box office. The Sandra Bullock and George Clooney-starring film has continued to be a popular choice among cinema goers, helped largely by its word-of-mouth success and continued success in 3D and IMAX cinemas.
Even Sandra Bullock can't believe Gravity's success
In what was a relatively lackluster weekend at the movies, Gravity added to its already impressive domestic gross with another $31 million (estimate) coming in from audiences since Friday (18 Oct.). The space-set Oscar contender did face some competition for the top spot, but its nearest rivals - horror remake Carrie and fellow Oscar-contender Captain Phillips - failed to do enough, leaving Gravity sitting pretty at the top of the US film chart. The estimated $31 million brought in over the weekend bring the total domestic gross to a whooping $170.6 million, a huge amount for a film that was predicted to only do modestly before its release three weeks ago.
In a disappointing weekend at the movies, this week's new releases were no competition for the ever-popular space thriller
Gravity needs no introduction anymore. The Sandra Bullock and George Clooney-starring sci-fi thriller has been written about and praised highly non-stop since it was released three weeks ago and on the top of this massive audience and critical success, the film has held strong for it's third consecutive weekend at the top of the box office. This weekend, it's estimated gross reflected a disappointing three days for the movie business, but with approximately $31 million coming in from audiences since Friday (18 Oct.), that number has been enough to keep the Alfonso Cuaron-directed film at the top for another week.
Gravity still soars above the competition
There was some competition for the film, namely from newcomer Carrie and fellow Oscar-contender Captain Phillips, which finished the week in second place for a second consecutive week. Despite the best efforts from it's nearest competitors, and still benefitting from the revenue it receives from 3D and IMAX tickets, Gravity is sitting pretty at the top of the film chart once again. With a reported gross of $170.6 million domestically in just three weeks, the film is already the 10th highest grossing film of the year in the home market, and there is a good chance that the film will go on to climb up a few more places in the year's top ten before it's cinematic run is over. Take into consideration the fact that it hasn't been released in international markets yet, then Gravity could become one of the top grossing films of the year.
Continue reading: 'Gravity' Leads At The Box Office Once Again After Lackluster Weekend
The sci-fi drama couldn't be beaten by 'Carrie' or 'The Fifth Estate' as it continues it's box office dominance
Gravity is still America's most popular film at the cinemas, as the Sandra Bullock and George Clooney-starring sci-fi disaster movie has held strong for it's third consecutive weekend at the top of the box office. Despite some strong competition from newcomer Carrie and some other new titles from the week, the 3D and IMAX phenomenon is still performing strongly and sitting pretty at the top of the film chart.
Gravity is still top at the box office
Gravity's weekend gross reflected a disappointing three days for the movie business, with only $31 million coming in from cinema-goers since Friday. Still, this has proved to be enough to keep it's nearest competitor at bay and enjoy yet more success. Providing Carrie or Captain Phillips don't have an overwhelming and unprecedented night of success this evening (20 October), then Gravity will quite easily continue to dominate the US box office.
Stephen King's horror is reborn for a new generation: can critics still be shocked by THAT prom scene?
Carrie, the best-selling horror novel from author Stephen King, has been given a reboot to bring the chilling tale of one tortured young girl's supernatural skill to a new generation. Directed by Kimberley Peirce, the movie is the third adaptation of the scary tale and is currently opening in theaters across the world.
Chloe Grace Moretz Plays Carrie: A Girl With An Extraordinary Talent.
The movie centres upon a young girl (Chloe Grace Moretz), raised by her strict Christian mother (Julianne Moore) who punishes her by locking her in a cupboard and forcing her to pray. Her abuse at home is mirrored by her bullying at school which includes a humiliating experience in the girls' locker room upon the discovery of her first period. Carrie suddenly realises she has the power to move objects with her mind. However, her newfound and destructive skill only makes her more of an outcast when all she strives for is to be normal.

'Carrie' has failed to impress critics ahead of its release in US cinemas today (18th October).
The latest adaptation of Stephen King's 1974 novel, Carrie, has received a series of negative reviews ahead of its release in the US today (18th October). The film stars Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass), as Carrie, and Julianne Moore (The Hours) as her mother, Margaret. Carrie has the supernatural gift of telekinesis and, after being bullied at her high school, uses her powers to destroy her tormentors.

Reviews of this latest adaptation have been less than favourable. There gory elements have been "revamped" but, as Katey Rich of The Guardian stated, "Carrie eventually devolves into lacklustre modern horror clichés for a souped-up version of the famous finale."

There's been a lot of buzz around the actress of late, possibly enough for a part in Star Wars.
With Star Wars Episode VII approaching (we use that word loosely, since the actual release date won’t be until 2015) fans are almost going crazy with speculation – Benedict Cumberbatch and Chloe Grace Moretz have both been pegged for roles in the Jj Abrams movie. While Cumberbatch has adamantly denied any involvement with Episode VII, as has his rep, the Moretz rumors seem to be hanging by an even flimsier thread.
It takes very little to start a rumor.
It turns out Chloe Grace is an avid Star Wars fans and has been marathoning the two original trilogies of late – at least her twitter feed says so. She mentioned a rewatch of Episode III being particularly productive, which added fuel to the already quite massive fire of speculation around her involvement.

'Lee Daniels' The Butler' has headed to the top of the US Weekend Box Office following its release on Friday (16th). 'Kick-Ass 2', following an onslaught of negative reviews, has achieved 4th place, whilst 'Jobs' has placed at 7th.
Lee Daniels' The Butler has defeated other newcomers Kick-Ass 2 and Jobs in the US Weekend Box Office. The Butler has headed straight to number one whilst Kick-Ass 2 and Jobs have respectively gained 4th and 7th place.
The Butler has made $25 million in its opening weekend and has gained critical praise. The historical epic is inspired by the true story of Cecil Gaines, a black butler who whilst serving at the White House, saw the offices of eight presidents. His life and family form a touchstone for the audience when addressing such historical events as the Civil Rights Movement and the rise of Black Power in the US.
Kick-Ass 2 has been described by critics as unnecessarily violent and lacking in the qualities which made the original so popular.
Kick-Ass 2 has been universally panned by critics. It is due to be released in the US today (16th August) whilst it is already out in UK cinemas.
Christopher Mintz-Plasse at the photocall for Kick-Ass 2 in Claridges, London.
The film, which follows the adventures of a couple of unlikely teenage superheroes, stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Christian Mintz-Plasse and Chloe Grace Moretz, has been described as inconsistent and lacking in the "visual style and gleeful humour of the original" (USA Today).

Hit Girl spin-off anyone?
Given that the original movie was so good, when we asked the question: can Kick Ass 2 possibly be better than the first?, we were asking a rhetorical question, or at least we thought we were. As it turns out, Kick Ass kicked Kick Ass 2’s ass.
Mark Miller – the creator of Kick Ass – even answered our then-rhetorical question. “Could 'Kick Ass 2' Be Even Better Than The First? Answer: YES... VERY VERY POSSIBLY!” he Tweeted in response to us, but alas, if the critics are doing their jobs properly, it’s not quite the film the original managed to be.
Continue reading: Kick Ass 2… Doesn’t Kick Ass!? Oh No! At Least Chloe Moretz Is Good
Mark Millar responds to Jim Carey's decision to withdraw his support from Kick-Ass 2. He claims the script has not changed since Carey initially saw it and that the use of violence in the film is not to encourage violence in reality.
Jim Carrey has withdrawn his support from Kick-Ass 2 claiming, via Twitter, that 'in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence'. He claims the reason behind his decision to withdraw is due to the Sandy Hook shootings.
The Sandy Hook shootings took place at a high school in December 2012. Twenty students and six members of teaching staff were murdered by a lone gun-man. The incident caused an outcry for gun laws in the US to be restricted.;
Since the shootings, Carrey has been one of the loudest advocates of restricted gun laws. He claims that as a result of these events and his own political opinion he no longer wishes to support Kick-Ass 2, whereby he will still be appearing in the completed film but will not be attending any publicity events which promote it.
Carrey's comments made over the weekend have come under scrutiny from Mark Millar and members of the public who are questioning the comic's morality
Jim Carrey will next star in the much-anticipated sequel to 2010's Kick-Ass, imaginatively called Kick-Ass 2, which is due out later this summer. While the rest of the cast and crew get ready to promote the film and do their bit to ensure it is a success, Carrey has decided in an act of non-violent protest that he will not be joining his crew-mates as they lobby for the film.
Carrey is a striden campaigner for stricter gun control in the USA and in the wake of the tragic school shootings at Sandy Hook, he has decided not to support the film, announcing his decision on Twitter. On Sunday (June 23) he posted on to his feed; “I did "Kickass" a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence," adding in another Tweet, "my apologies to others involved with the film. I am not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart.”
A noble move yes, but Carrey may have accidentally shot himself in the foot because now people are demanding that the star put his money where his mouth is and if he really is as opposed to the movie he says he is, then why not give away the fee he received. Others saw it as a direct attack on the film and should box office takings and intrest in the movie begin to fall, the blame will no doubt be placed squarely on Carrey. Others meanwhile just didn't understand Carrey's logic, including Mark Millar - the writer of the Kick-Ass graphic novel, and how he managed to blur the lines between fiction and reality, as well as questioning why he chose to single out one occurrence as his reason behind denouncing the film.

Kristen says bye to Bella with a gritty military film and an alpine drama.
Kristen Stewart, star of the Twilight franchise, has landed herself lead roles in political drama Camp X-Ray, and Swiss-set Sils Maria.
The 23 year-old actress, best known for her lead role as Bella Swan in the recently-ended Twilight saga, has been confirmed for the two indie films, set to shoot back-to-back this summer, according to deadline.com.
After reportedly having split in May from on-off boyfriend and fellow Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson, who she met on the set of the first Twilight movie in 2008, it seems K-Stew is keeping her mind off the split by staying busy with new projects.

While Tom Cruise and co-stars Olga Kurylenko and Andrea Riseborough travel around for Oblivion premieres, Bradley Cooper astounds with possibly his best performance to-date in The Place Beyond the Pines.
Summer blockbuster season kicked off this week with the release of the new Tom Cruise action-adventure Oblivion, which is also the first in a seemingly endless series of post-apocalyptic movies headed our way over the next couple of years. Tom is currently travelling around the world with costars Olga Kurylenko and Andrea Riseborough for Oblivion premieres in various countries.
Another recent release in the UK and US is The Place Beyond the Pines, a dark drama that reunites Ryan Gosling with Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance. The film also stars Bradley Cooper, who has been in the news this week after stepping in for Jude Law in the troubled Western thriller Jane Got a Gun. Director Gavin O'Connor (Warrior) has also come on board after the sudden departure of Lynne Ramsay (We Need to Talk About Kevin). It's now filming in New Mexico with costars Natalie Portman and Joel Edgerton.
New trailer for Carrie hits
The latest reimagining of cult classic horror, starring Chloe Grace Moretz, has a scary new trailer to whet our appetite. Will it stand up to the original? Check the trailer out below.
In this trailer, we see Julianne Moore – who plays Carrie’s mother, Margaret White – is nearly as scary as Carrie herself, who can manipulate her environment to catastrophic events when she’s angry enough; she’s like a mini telekinetic Hulk. The re-make to the Oscar nominated 1976 horror based on the book by acclaimed author Stephen King is due to hit screens this year in the first major rendition since the Brian De Palma flick's release. Boys Don’t Cry director Kimberly Peirce helms the project, while the script was written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, best known for his work on HBO drama series Big Love, based on the original novel by King. The film was originally due for release this March, but has since been pushed back and will now open on November 29 in the U.K and October 18th in the U.S.

Have they given away too much with this Carrie trailer?
A note to the makers of the Carrie remake: not everyone has seen the original, you know. You may have wanted to keep a little bit of the plotline as a surprise?
Starring Chloe Grace Moretz in the title role of the socially awkward, telekinetically (ahem) ‘blessed’ teen who learns about puberty the hard way, this remake of the classic 1976 Brian De Palma horror is nonetheless looking pretty enticing. Even if we’ve just been shown a two and a half minute synopsis of what seems to be pretty much the entire plot.
An adaptation of Stephen King’s novel, this modern remake stars Julianne Moore as Carrie White’s overbearing and over-religious mother. The cruelty of teenage life is made even more cringeworthy, in this contemporary reboot, as, of course, we can now not only bully people, but we can record such incidences of bullying on our smart phones, keeping the footage available for future torture and abuse. Starring in the title role, Moretz looks delightfully kooky and just the right shade of weird – just as Cissy Spacek did in the original, whilst Julianne Moore makes for a fairly terrifying, nutty mom.

Casting Chloe Moretz in the 'Carrie' remake is the best decision anyone has ever made. Carrie is an extraordinary and iconic character from film's horror history; she's a frustrated teenager with special powers. Moretz is a teenager that is equally - though less disturbingly - special.
Casting Chloe Moretz in the 'Carrie' remake is the best decision anyone has ever made. Carrie is an extraordinary and iconic character from film's horror history; she's a frustrated teenager with special powers. Moretz is a teenager that is equally - though less disturbingly - special.
Although anyone would be daunted by replaying a character that is so marked in our imaginations and in film itself, Moretz acknowledged the big shoes she was expected to step into, and wanted to make them her own. Speaking at the New York Comic Con. 2012, she spoke confidently with incredible maturity in her approach to the role; "I... try to look at it as what it is,” which is "a beautiful acting piece between a mother and a daughter.” She said, “It has the really cool aspects of telekinesis. That's how I judge it and that's how I look at it as an actress. I try to forget about if we're going to live up to the expectations of what people are going to want."
In 'Carrie' Moretz sees teenagers across America who are all faced with a 'Vicious cycle' reports MTV. You start off this broken down adolescent, kind of awkward, gangly girl, she goes from gangly to this beautiful young woman ... and it comes back full circle to wanting to be in her mom's arms.” She says, “It's this beautiful circle, which is what happens when you're growing up. You want to get out of your parents' house. You want to go, and then you're out and you think home is really fun, and you always want to come back."

Any event of Chanel's will always be full of the world's best dressed and most beautiful people. As such, Keira Knightley was a prerequisite to Chanel's 'Little Black Jacket' event in London, last night (11th Oct 2012). The event was to celebrate the launch of an exhibition of photos of different people wearing Chanel's iconic 'Little Black Jacket', at the Saachi Gallery in London.
Knightley has been one of the faces of Chanel since 2006, appearing in promotional material for one of the fashion house's perfumes, Coco Mademoiselle. As such she has developed a friendship with head of the house, Karl Lagerfeld, who of course attended the event in his signature dark sunglasses. Rumours have been flying around regarding Knightley's wedding to Klaxons guitarist James Righton, prospective date unknown, and whether the Pirates of the Caribbean actress has requested Lagerfeld to design her wedding dress (Daily Mail).
Other celebrities that attended the event included Yasmin Le Bon, Laura Carmichael, Noomi Rapace and Chloe Moretz, star of hit movie 'Kick-Ass'. Moretz turned up looking particularly stylish for a 15 year old. Indeed, she looked well dressed for anyone of any age, sporting leather trousers, gorgeous teal heels and a jacket seemingly inspired by the 16th century- the combination of which sounds awful, but is, in fact, an embodiment of style.
Hugo is a twelve year old boy who lives in Paris and loves mysteries. One day, in 1930, his father presents him with a wind up figure. His father tells him it's a music box that a magician probably built. The only thing missing is the key used to wind up the music box. The keyhole is in the shape of a heart. Hugo and his father want to find the heart shaped key - whose whereabouts is a mystery - so they can make their music box work.
