The film now is led by Jake Gyllenhaal who got absolutely shredded for the role of Billy Hope, a champion boxer who struggles with the ups and downs of fighting. The film also stars Rachel McAdams, Rita Ora, Naomie Harris, Tyrese Gibson, 50 Cent, Beau Knapp, and Forest Whitaker.

Written by Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter, Gyllenhaal hopes this is the film that finally lands him the Oscar he has been fighting for. He’s been on a roll lately with Nightcrawler, Enemy, and a few more promising features.

If John Green writes the book…it appears on screen. That’s pretty much the formula Hollywood has been using to rake in the dough.

Last summer, The Fault in Our Stars grossed over $300 million even though it failed to live up to my expectations by a large margin. Green and 20th Century Fox return with Paper Towns, an adaptation of the book, directed by Jake Schreier.

The film stars Nat Wolff as a high school senior who has long been in love with his neighbor Margo (Cara Delevingne) , one night she takes him on an adventure before disappearing, leaving clues for him to track her down. Written by the great tandem of Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (The Fault in Our Stars, The Spectacular Now), the film also stars Austin Abrams, Halston Sage, and Justice Smith.

Paper Towns opens on July 24th.

With a few trailers under their belts, so far Pixar has marketed Inside Out as a hilarious peak at the emotions of a household. From the daughter and her thinking, a mother’s concern and attempt to get on the same page with the father, and of course the father who is mentally checked out but gives it an honest effort.

A new trailer arrives, along with a featurette on the cast, that gives us more on the story of the film. 11-year-old Riley loses her memories thanks to a mishap by one of her emotions and they must venture through the long-term memories to return them to the “brain,” all while our lead character goes through experiences in her own life. The film features the voice cast of Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Phyllis Smith, Kaitlyn Dias, Diane Lane, Kyle MacLachlan, John Ratzenberger, and Lewis Black.

Inside Out opens on June 19th, 2015.

With three strong films under his belt, Denis Villenuve has become a hot commodity. The Incendies, Prisoners, and Enemy director is about to land his biggest project to date.

The sequel to Blade Runner is finally happening, and Villenuve will helm the picture. More so, Harrison Ford, the star of the original, will return and reprise his role as Deckard.

In a press release (found below) we know the film will take place several decades after the events of the first film, but that’s pretty much it. Once Ridley Scott started to doubt his involvement in the project, names started circulating but the idea of a sequel was never set in stone.

Production is set to get underway in the Summer of 2016, in the mean time, Villeneuve will finish Sicario with Emily Blunt which hits theaters in September.

Whether it was winners not getting off stage while they were disrespectfully played off, or winners speaking up for a cause, the 87th Academy Awards certainly had a theme.

 J.K. Simmons, who gave the performance of a lifetime in Whiplash, won Best Supporting Actor, kicked it off by telling everyone to call their parents. Patricia Arquette, who won Best Supporting Actress stood up for equal wages for Women, while Graham Moore moved everyone watching by telling the youth to “stay weird, stay different.” Common and John Legend spoke out for equal rights, and Ida director Pawel Pawlikowski blatently ignored the play off music and kept talking as he should!

Birdman took home four Oscars including Best Picture and Best Director. The other Academy favorite The Grand Budapest Hotel took home four Academy Awards as well, with wins in Production Design and Make-Up, and Score.

The three big upsets were Big Hero 6 topping How to Train Your Dragon 2 in the Animated Feature category, Whiplash beating Boyhood for Film Editing which was a super fun surprise, and Birdman topping Boyhood in Original Screenplay.

Richard Linklater’s epic Boyhood was shut out aside from Arquette’s win which was a big surprise, and the darling of the Academy, Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper took home only one gold statue.

Here’s a full list of the winners along with all the memorable speeches and moments:
