Hailee Steinfeld Joins PITCH PERFECT 2

Written by Tara the Mom    Wednesday, 30 April 2014 00:00   

Hailee SteinfeldUPDATE: Hailee Steinfeld will join the cast of Pitch Perfect! Hailee is one of the few Oscar-nominated kid actors. Often, kids who get that status don't make movies kids or teens will enjoy, but Hailee recently co-starred in Ender's Game and now, she's in a movie very likely to get multiple viewings from teens. Now, who is ready to hear Hailee sing?

Jan. 28, 2014 -  If you don't know much about Elizabeth Banks, let me assure you - she is AMAZING. She has two little kids under the age of 3, she has a pretty cool website (ElizabethBanks.com), she has a busy acting career and she has a company that makes movies like Pitch Perfect. Now, she's going to add director to her resume. She will direct Pitch Perfect 2! She's tried her hand at it before by directing a segment of Movie 43. Banks and her husband Max Handelman will produce the sequel as well with their company Brownstone Productions.

More really great news about Pitch Perfect 2: Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson will be back! The writer of the original film, Kay Cannon, will write the sequel as well. 

Here's a fun fact: the Pitch Perfect soundtrack, which included Kendrick's song "Cups," is the best-selling soundtrack in digital history! 

altApril 16, 2013 - Pitch Pefect 2 Is Happening! The cast has already said they're in for another round and Kay Cannon, who wrote the original, will return to write the script for the sequel.

Dec. 21, 2012 - Battleship aside, Universal Pictures is having a great year just breaking its own record for biggest worldwide box office take ever which is about $2.97 million (and it hasn't even released Les Miserable yet!). SO, it's logical that Uni is looking at what WORKED and trying to do more of that. One big success was a small film called Pitch Perfect. Now, the male lead of Pitch Perfect, Skylar Astin says the studio called him into discuss a sequel and he knows the film's breakout talent, Rebel Wilson, has had a similar meeting. He says one of the difficulties is identifiying a song that will be or still be popular 18 months after filming. Considering what a great movie it was, a Pitch Perfect sequel sounds aca-awesome!

 

 

 

Shazam! AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Reveals Secret Scene

Written by Dave B.    Tuesday, 29 April 2014 15:54   

Amazing Spider-Man 2 PosterWe're amazing at how creative these studios are getting when it comes to hiding their easter eggs throughout the movie.

When it comes to a movie featuring Marvel characters, it's pretty much a given that there's going to be a scene either during or after the credits. But with The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it's a totally different story.

While we hear that there will be a sneak peek of 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' during the credits of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it was just revealed that, if you Shazam the song "It's on Again" by Alicia Keys, feat. Kendrick Lamar, you'll access an additional scene that reveals a look into Spidey's "sinister future" (Sinister Six??) that only Shazam users will be able to see.

Amazing! So make sure you have your phone all ready (just off during the movie!) And get ready for the biggest challenge that Spider-Man has faced. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 debuts in theaters on May 2 - we are so ready!

 

Will Ferrell to YANK the Crown Jewels

Written by Dave B.    Tuesday, 29 April 2014 13:29   

If there's one formula that's always worked for us in movies, it's a good heist. With so much sneaking around and things going on at once, who doesn't like to wrap their mind around "the one big job?"

Will Ferrell looks like he's aiming to mix up the formula in only the way that he could. His new movie The Yank, was just purchased by Tri-Star, and he's all set up for the lead role!

The Yank follows a courier who just wants to go about his normal life, doing what he does best. So when things get a little heated, and he finds himself wrapped up in a conspiracy to steal the Crown Jewels, we know that he's going to find himself in more than just a few sticky situations!

This upcoming comedy is still in its early stages of production, and very few details have emerged. But more is sure to develop, and we'll have all the info right here at KidsPickFlicks!

Star Wars Episode 7 Cast

 

John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domnhall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow. If you haven't heard those names yet, you'd better get used to them! These are your newest cast members for Star Wars: Episode VII, OFFICIALLY announced by Disney this morning.

No word has been spoken on the roles that these actors will be taking on, but there's still a lot of news that still has to develop.

The rumors were swirling, and now it's official: tying it all together will be the return of the main characters of Episodes VI, V, and IV! Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford are all returning, we assume in that means in their original parts as Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo. Also, Anthony Daniels and Peter Mayhew are also back which means...so is C-3P0 and Chewbacca! And, check out the cast photo - there's R2D2 in the back behind Harrison Ford - all is well in the world.

December 18, 2015 is the date to circle on your calendars, because that's when Star Wars: Episode VII heads to theaters. There's still plenty of news on the way, so make sure you stay tuned to KidsPickFlicks for all the details!
