It's Off to BATTLE for THE HOBBIT

Written by Dave B.    Friday, 25 April 2014 13:32   

So long to the days of There and Back Again, and let us usher in a new era of The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies! That's right... The Hobbit got a name change!

Peter Jackson recently had a revelation while shooting on the set of the third installment of The Hobbit trilogy, and it turns out that There and Back Again wasn't the best subtitle for the upcoming adventure.

Peter said that a lot of the "There" part of the title was accomplished in Desolation of Smaug, so the third movie would focus more strongly on the "Back Again" part. In the end, he just decided to scrap the whole thing!

Let's just hope the name change doesn't mess with Lord of the Rings fans too much! It shouldn't take long to adjust to The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies. We think the new title sounds more epic anyway - we can't wait to see it in theaters on December 17!

 

Familiar TV Faces Materialize Into JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS Cast

Written by Dave B.    Friday, 25 April 2014 06:37   

The 80s are coming back! Piece by piece, anyway...

Jem and the Holograms is an interesting take on the music world. When Jerrica Benton is at school, she's a nobody. But when she takes the stage as Jem, she's a star! Think Hannah Montana of the 80s.

What really made Jem unique was her band. Really, they only had to pack and travel for one, because Jem's back-up was, well, holograms!

Now this iconic franchise is getting revived as a movie, and we're seeing some very real actors play some very transparent characters.

Star of the hit series "Nashville," Aubrey Peeples, is all set to play Jem, while her sister Kimber, will be taken over by "A.N.T. Farm" actress Stefanie Scott. Meanwhile, Hayley Kiyoko ("The Fosters") and Aurora Perrineau ("Pretty Little Liars") will be performing as Jem's holographic bandmates Aja and Shana.

We just have a feeling that Jem and the Holograms is going to be BIG! And you'll be able to say that you were there from the beginning. Make sure you keep checking back to KidsPickFlicks for all of the details on Jem and the Holograms!

Top 5 Movie Characters Who'd Make the BEST BFFs

Written by Nicole P.    Wednesday, 23 April 2014 12:39   

Our favorite movies have introduced us to some of the greatest friends we could ever ask for. We fall in love with these characters and secretly wish we could spend every day with them. Sure, they may be a wizard, a werewolf or even animated, but they have the all the qualities we look for when it comes to the perfect best friend. Some may call them the main character's sidekick, but in the end their friendship is what keeps these characters together forever. Find out which characters we would love to be besties with in the list below!

1. Ron Weasley from Harry Potter - Even though he is mostly a scaredy-cat, Ron always stands by Harry. With hesitation, he is always there to take on any adventure, creature or villain with his pals. Who would not want a bestie that always has your back?

2. Mater from Cars - He may be a tow truck, but how can you not love Mater? He was there when you needed him the most, he is the comic relief and can get you out of any sticky situation, literally. We honestly just want to be his best friend because he would have us laughing the entire time - what else do you need in a bestie?

3. Anna from Frozen - Yes, Anna is sisters with Elsa, but we know they are also best friends. Anna goes to great length to save her sister/best friend, and we know she would do the same for us. As her new BFF, Anna would never stop trying to make sure we were together forever, as true best friends should be.

4. Jacob Black from The Twilight Saga - Okay, so he may be in love with you and he may be a werewolf, but he's a lot of fun! Looking at how Jacob treats Bella, it appears he loves to just hang out, teach a friend how how to fix motorcycles, and even let's you drive his. And if he thinks a situation is dangerous, Jacob will be the first one to protect you.

5. Gwen Stacy from The Amazing Spider-Man - We know she is the love interest of Peter Parker, but she is also his best friend. She wants to help him save the world, she keeps his secret and would do anything to protect his Spider Man identity. What better qualities do you need in a best friend other than other those? We say...none!

Would you like to be best friends with these amazing movie besties? Which best friend/sidekick is your favorite? Be sure to let us know your answers and thoughts in the comments below.

 

 

TERMINATOR: GENESIS Reboots with Schwarzenegger

Written by Dave B.    Wednesday, 23 April 2014 10:45   

Fans of action and sci-fi movies everywhere know that if they want to get their fix, they can always turn to the Terminator movies for just that. Seriously, big explosions, unstoppable killer robots? What's not to love?

With a Terminator reboot in full swing in Hollywood (it started filming today), we couldn't be more excited for any and all news that pours in regarding this iconic franchise. Well how much more newsworthy does it get than a major cast announcement?

Starring in the highly anticipated Terminator: Genesis will be "Game of Thrones" actress Emilia Clarke as a young Sarah Connor, and Jason Clarke is stepping into the shoes of her son, John Connor. The movie also stars Jai Courtney from Divergent, JK Simmons ("Growing Up Fisher"), Dayo Okeniyi (Thresh from The Hunger Games), and Byung Hun Lee (Storm Shadow in G.I. Joe movies).

Perhaps the casting move that we are most excited about is the return of the original, the one, the only Arnold Schwarzenegger. When he said he'll be back, he totally meant it, and now he's here. 

Terminator: Genesis is set for a Summer 2015 release. Make sure you keep checking back to KidsPickFlicks for all the details on your favorite and most anticipated movies!
