The dystopian future of "The Hunger Games" has lots of things, including wild fashion, death matches between adolescents and apparently, a still Photoshop-obsessed culture hell-bent on airbrushing their celebrities into plastic-looking pod people.

Bailing last fall on directing "X-Men: Days Of Future Past," and still yet to lock down his next directorial, Matthew Vaughn isn't leaving the Fox lot or the comic book genre behind completely. Besides 'Future Past' and "The Wolverine," the studio and their newly minted nerd consultant Mark Millar still have a lot to tackle, including one major property in "Fantastic Four." And now it's getting a little bit of help.

In October, rising star and talented actress-singer Anna Kendrick signed on to play the female lead in a film adaptation of the successful time-warp romantic musical “The Last 5 Years.” Now, Broadway golden boy Jeremy Jordan has been cast as her love interest, a choice that is sure to get the theater kids jazzed up.

With credits that include "The Kids Are All Right," "Laurel Canyon," "High Art" and "The L Word," Lisa Cholodenko didn't always seem like the obvious choice to co-write (with Ron Lieber) and direct "Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day." But she's been developing the vehicle for a while, first at Fox and then at Disney who picked the project up when it went into turnaround. But as the movie continues to move forward, Cholodenko has decided she won't get behind the camera after all.

While their working relationship has yet to translate into a big screen outing, Sofia Coppola and Natalie Portman have made quite the formidable pair for Dior. They teamed up a couple of years ago for a campaign for Miss Dior Cherie (Coppola has been doing work for the fashion house for years) and they've paired up once again to sell some more scented water.

Once the news came in last week that Peter Dinklage would be joining the cast of “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” it did not take long for the rumors to begin swirling about. Would he be playing Puck or Toad? Then we wondered if he could be playing a fully CGI character. Turns out it’ll be none of the above, as director Bryan Singer recently confirmed to IGN.

Taylor Kitsch
Poor Taylor Kitsch. Though he turned heads in the critically acclaimed small screen adaptation of “Friday Night Lights,” his forays into the big screen haven’t been met with similar praise. Last year was Kitsch’s big test as leading man, with starring roles in “John Carter,” “Battleship” and “Savages,” and it didn't turn out so well. Box office receipts and critical pans be damned however, because the former football star with the bedroom eyes has lined up another leading role.

Say what you will about Nicholas Sparks, but his movies always seem to perform well in the box office. While none of them have been huge smash hits ("The Notebook" aside), they all make a pretty hefty profit on modest budgets. And this year’s ”Safe Haven” continued the trend, opening up quiet well even as it faced off against "A Good Day To Die Hard." So it should come as no surprise to anyone that a bidding war among studios recently erupted in an attempt to purchase Sparks’s latest, "The Longest Ride."

...well, we can't really argue, can we? While Oscar history is littered with actors and movies who more than deserved the statues and the glory, it's also filled with head scratching decisions and winners that haven't stood the test of time. But knowing that, and saying that are two different things, particularly when you're in the industry, and Ethan Hawke may be having his own Joaquin Phoenix moment. He even used the same carrot metaphor...

While some thought that Judd Apatow’s 2009 dramedy “Funny People” could mark a turning point of sorts for Adam Sandler, the comedy star has dedicated the years since to further become the type of actor he lampooned in the viral ads for the Apatow film. And now, Deadline is reporting that he’s thinking about teaming up again with the actress he’s already romanced in two previous films, to diminishing returns.
