Pitch Perfect 3 Trailer


It has been a few years since the Barden Bellas graduated from college, and while they have largely managed to stay in touch, they have not performed together at musical World Championships for a very long time. Needless to say, with their various career ventures not going as well as they had hoped and the media still keeping a close eye on them and willing them to fail, they are missing their beloved a cappella sing-a-longs a lot right now.

Beca Mitchell (Anna Kendrick) has quit her job out of boredom, Flo Fuentes (Chrissie Fit) is serving on a city juice stall, Chloe Beale (Brittany Snow) is struggling to get into vet school and Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson) is now a not so popular impersonator called Fat Amy Winehouse. But maybe they can give their musical passions a boost with a new kind of show...

Aubrey Posen (Anna Camp) has an idea of trying to obtain an invite to perform at a competition show in Europe set up by the United Service Organizations (USO) in support of the US Army soldiers. It's not like they have anything else to do at the moment so the group are all for it. However, armed only with their voices, they have quite the competition as many of their rivals are bands with actual instruments.

Elizabeth Banks Discusses 'Charlie's Angels' Revival


Elizabeth Banks

Some may know her as Effie Trinket in the 'Hunger Games' film series; other may have seen her in the more recent 'Power Rangers' big screen adaptation. What you may not know about Elizabeth Banks however is that the actress is planning on moving behind the camera and sitting in the Director's Chair for a planned 'Charlie's Angels' revival at Sony.

Originally coming to viewers as a small screen crime drama between 1976 and 1981, 'Charlie's Angels' enjoyed some big success. Then came a whole slew of botched attempts of reviving the franchise, before a film adaptation in 2000 that featured Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu as the three leading Angels.

Power Rangers - Teaser Trailer


Go Go Power Rangers! Billy Cranston, Jason Lee Scott, Kimberly Hart, Trini Kwan and Zack Taylor are five kids who are all at Angel Grove high school together. Not one of them is particularly popular and they find themselves being brought together through an equal disdain for the rest of their classmates.

What the five new friends don't realise is that they are soon to become important to everyone on the planet. When the group go off adventuring, they find themselves in an old quarry and uncover the secret that will change all their lives. When they hear sirens, the group flee the area and head back to their homes but in the days following they all realise that their physique has changed significantly and their muscular strength is far superior to any normal human. As they begin to experiment with their new powers, they find they can fight, jump and withstand huge amounts of force.

Their new personal changes are not the only thing the teenagers have to think about, they're also faced with information that will cause a great darkness to be cast over the world. Their little town of Angel Grove is being threatened by a deadly alien force lead by the wicked Rita Repulsa. Though they're young, the five heroes must team together and defend their town - and ultimately the rest of the world - from Repulsa.

5 Times Elizabeth Banks Channelled Her Inner Effie Trinket In 2015


Elizabeth Banks

By far the most visually stunning character in the whole 'Hunger Games' franchise is, of course, Effie Trinket; the outrageously dressed capitol chaperone brought to life by Elizabeth Banks in every movie. And it seems some of that magic has rubbed off on Banks on the red carpet too.

Effie's unique style doesn't stop at the set of this movie series; Banks has been turning heads at events throughout the year in get-ups reminiscent of the role that brought her to international attention. Now that the series has finally ended with the box office smash hit 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2', we hope that Banks continues to work that weirdness. Here's a few of our favourites:

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 Review

Extraordinary

Suzanne Collins' saga comes to a suitably epic conclusion in a climactic series of battles that are packed with emotional kicks to the gut. Director Francis Lawrence continues to show remarkable reverence for the source novels while relying on his A-list cast to bring layers of nuance to even the smallest roles. The result is a massively textured war movie that's packed with darkly personal moments and glimpses of wit and spark. It's also a satisfying conclusion to the franchise that avoids the usual Hollywood bombast.

As the rebels prepare to attack Panem's Capitol and President Snow (Donald Sutherland), the rebellion's figurehead Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) decides to take matters into her own hands. Rebel leaders Coin and Plutarch (Julianne Moore and Philip Seymour Hoffman) try to stay one step ahead of Katniss, using her as the Mockingjay to rally the troops. With Gale (Liam Hemsworth), a not-quite-unbrainwashed Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a small group of cohorts, Katniss works her way across the bombed-out city to Snow's mansion, intending to put an arrow through his heart. But the battle takes a shocking twist, and Katniss has to make a difficult decision about doing the right thing no matter what it costs her.

Right from the start, the filmmakers continue to echo Katniss' earliest act of heroism when she volunteered for the Hunger Games to protect her sister Prim (Willow Shields) and then vowed to keep Peeta safe in the violent arena. These are the things that drive her right to the very end of this saga, holding the audience in an emotional grip. This means that the political nastiness, violent warfare and publicity posturing all have a much deeper resonance for the audience, while for Katniss they are virtually irrelevant. Her mission remains untainted: she just wants to protect her loved ones and make the future safe. Which is why her speeches carry such rousing power.

Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller And Emma Watson Show Support For Jennifer Lawrence's Gender Pay Inequality Essay


Jennifer Lawrence Bradley Cooper Sienna Miller Emma Watson Jessica Chastain Elizabeth Banks

Hollywood stars including Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller and Emma Watson have declared their support for Jennifer Lawrence’s essay on gender pay inequality in the film industry.

Miller and Cooper, who were interviewed on the red carpet at the premiere of their new movie Burnt on Wednesday (October 14th), both weighed in on the article that Lawrence published via Lena Dunham’s newsletter Lenny the previous day.

33 year old Miller revealed that she once turned down a play because she was offered less than half the pay of her male co-star – in a two-person production. She told E! News that she reluctantly did “what we have to start doing, unfortunately, at the expense of our creative dreams… …I walked away from a play I wanted to do because I was offered less than half of what the other man was offered and it was just the two of us.”

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 Final Trailer


Katniss Everdeen is determined to take down President Snow once and for all. Too many lives have been sacrificed and too many homes destroyed while the Capitol has brainwashed and controlled the people of Panem. Now re-united with Peeta after his rescue from Snow's clutches, Katniss gathers her friends from District 13 - Gale, Finnick and Cressida - and sets out on the ultimate mission to free Panem, and fight Snow to the death. But it seems it's not only Snow that wants Katniss dead, as she becomes increasingly paranoid about some of the supposed rebels. Facing increasing uncertainty, more tragedy and some of the worse warfare she could possibly imagine, Katniss starts to realise that ending the nightmare won't end the fear or the collective sorrow.
