Of course Summit was going to separate the third Divergent movie, Allegiant, into two films. Why not make double the money by extending the franchise? Makes sense to me! And while most of the unnamed stars are probably thrilled to have a few more months of work (read: another paycheck), Shailene Woodley doesn’t really care either way because she’s just so chill and ~in touch~ with nature.
As she told Entertainment Weekly:
“I am excited, but my very first thought, if I’m being honest was, ‘Okay. All right. That’s another year of kicking ass. Another year devoted to this character.’ But that’s all right, because I am honored to be Tris, and it is exciting.”
Sorry, that’s not quite green enough for me. What else ya got, Shailene?
“At one point I heard that it was not going to happen, and now it is happening, so yeah. You never know man. Life changes every day, you just got to really surrender to the process.”
YES! Surrender to the process! Be pregnant with the world! I love it.
I’m pretty happy about the split, to be honest, because I really like the series. The movies aren’t incredible, but they are entertaining enough, so I’m with it.

I know movies tend to do this thing where they release the best possible clips as promo before its release, most of the time leading to a big disappointment when you ACTUALLY go see it. That’s probably what’s happening with 22 Jump Street, but the newest clip of Channing Tatum‘s character being terrible (an understatement) at accents totally makes me want to see it:
To be 100% honest, I don’t remember much about 21 Jump Street, but I did watch it (and laugh) during a flight to the UK a little over a year ago. “Didn’t hate it” is almost equivalent to “liked it, would watch again” in my book (ALMOST), so I’d give this a chance if someone releases a cam of it.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: It’s some serious bullshit that Hollywood is relying so heavily on reboots/book adaptations instead of solid original content – and believe me, there’s a LOT of it out there. However, this announcement is one I can get behind: there’s going to be a new Gremlins reboot! YESSSSSS!
From Ain’t It Cool:
One film from that period that I still adore, however, is GREMLINS, and I’m told a remake of Joe Dante’s film is also moving quickly at WB. Good times.
Yes, move that shit quickly. I’ll see it! I mean, I won’t go to the movies to see it, but I will download it! Who wouldn’t?!

Sometimes, sequels are made years — even decades — after the original film. Just look at Dumb and Dumber.
The director of The Goonies, Richard Donner, says he’s down for a sequel. Goonies came out in 1985.
Corey Feldman just got awesome news — Richard Donner told us he’s making a sequel to “The Goonies” … and wants to bring back the entire cast.
Donner was signing autographs in Bev Hills when he dropped the bombshell … genuinely surprising our photog.
What Donner didn’t say … whether he’ll recast the main characters and bring in Corey, Josh Brolin, Sean Astin and Data for cameos, or if these guys will actually play the same roles 28 years later.
Well obviously, we know Corey Feldman is down, as he’s always down to rehash what once made him famous. Good luck getting Josh Brolin, though.
Would you guys see a Goonies sequel?

Scarlett Johansson takes on the lead role in the upcoming action/sci-fi movie Lucy, which deals with a girl who’s kidnapped and has drugs put INSIDE her body via surgery and somehow they start to leak and give her superpowers and she basically takes over the world.
I’m by no means a ScarJo fan, but oh man, I’m SO in for this.
What do you think? Will you see it?

If you want to know the plot of Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel‘s new movie, Sex Tape, it’s simple: a married couple realize a sex tape they made has gone missing and it’s been uploaded to “the cloud” so the entire movie is spent looking for it. It’s apparently really raunchy and hilarious (supposed to be, anyway) and that’s about it.
I dunno, looks pretty awful to me. What do you think?
