This weekend's hot movie The Maze Runner features a fresh young face named Blake Cooper, who earned his role as Chuck by campaigning on Twitter.
Then there's the latest trend in Hollywood for mining movie ideas.

Watch: Guillermo del Toro May Have Helped Create the Creepiest Video Game Ever
When you talk about cross-media collaboration dream teams, it’s hard to get more impressive than Guillermo del Toro and Hideo Kojima. GDT is the cinematic visionary who brought us films like Pacific Rim and The Devil’s Backbone. Kojima is video game development’s biggest rock star, the guy responsible for Metal Gear Solid. What happens when these two guys get together to make something? Silent Hills happens.
The latest entry in the classic survival horror video game series will feature Kojima and del Toro working together to scare the bejesus out of you – and if this new footage from the Tokyo Game Show is any indication, the dynamic duo is on the right track.
We don’t know a whole lot about the game at this point, only that it features The Walking... Read More
Watch: The Creator of 'Project Greenlight' Reveals What Happens When Two Directors Make Movies Based on the Same Script
Project Greenlight, a competition that gave first-time filmmakers a shot at making a feature film, was simply a great show for movie fans. Even if the movies that came out of the program weren't the single greatest achievements in cinema ever made, the process of watching newbies go through the filmmaking grinder was an illuminating one.
Well now Chris Moore, one of the creators of Project Greenlight, is back with a similar behind-the-scenes filmmaking show called The Chair on Starz. This time around two first-time filmmakers, Shane Dawson and Anna Martemucci, are given the chance of making it big, only the twist is that they both have to direct their versions of the same original screenplay, Dan Schoffer's How Soon Is Now.
If that sounds a bit confusing, don't... Read More

Matthew McConaughey Is Out of 'Magic Mike XXL,' but These Ladies Are In
The Matthew McConaughey train is leaving the station at a bazillion miles per hour. Directors and other creatives better jump on it quick if they want a chance to work with the True Detective actor. Magic Mike fans have been holding hope that there would be another McConaughey striptease in the film’s upcoming sequel, titled Magic Mike XXL (we’re just a little bit concerned about that part). But once again, it’s been confirmed, via Magic Mike XXL director Greg Jacobs (a regular Steven Soderbergh collaborator/producer, including the new Clive Owen-licious series The Knick), there will be no McConaughey in the drama about male dancers.
But we do know that MMXXL will be “very different” according to the filmmaker. “What am I allowed to say... Read More
Watch: Wow, This Test Footage for a CG 'Popeye' Movie Looks Amazing
Animator-turned-director Genndy Tartakovsky scored a big hit for Sony Pictures with 2012’s Hotel Transylvania. The studio was so pleased with his work that he was brought back for the sequel Hotel Transylvania 2, but there’s another project that has the Russian-born filmmaker all fired up: a CG updating of Max Fleischer’s Popeye cartoons. And we’ve got the first test footage to show you what such a feature would look like.
Tartakovsky stresses the new footage isn’t a trailer or even a clip, as this new Popeye hasn’t been officially green-lit, nor does it have a script. It’s more of a proof-of-concept piece, something to get fans excited about what’s possible for Popeye and Olive Oyl in a modern CG world. We have to say, we’re... Read More
