The Final Book In The Divergent Trilogy Will Be Split Into Two Films

News like this always makes me think of a quote from the movie Contact: “Why build one when you can have two at twice the price?”

As with The Hunger Games and the Twilight saga, Lionsgate/Summit has made plans to split the third book in the Divergent trilogy in twain. Allegiant, Part 1 is on track for release on March 18, 2016, with Part 2 hitting theaters March 24, 2017. Though Divergent didn’t open as strongly as its predecessors, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-Chairmen Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger are confident that the tetralogy model will be a success once again.

On Average, The Top Women-Led Films of 2013 Grossed Higher Than Male-Led Films

As we’ve previously discussed, of the 100 highest-grossing films of 2013, a whopping 15 featured female protagonists. This figure became popular knowledge through a report by the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film, which compares the percentage of women working behind the camera with those featured on screen. Unsurprisingly, the numbers correlate.

Vanity Fair’s Bruce Handy had some questions about those statistics. Given Hollywood’s focus on getting as many butts in seats as possible, surely they wouldn’t ignore the preferences of their audiences. Could it be that the lack of women on screen was actually reflective of a purchasing trend? If we treat blockbusters like Catching Fire as flukes, is there economic logic behind the comparative lack of female-led films?

Spoiler: No.

Let’s Get Mad: Center for Study of Women in TV and Film Releases 2013 Findings on Female Characters

Just a couple months ago, the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film released their report on the gender ratios of Hollywood’s workers, discovering that the ratio of women to men in various behind the scenes roles such as editors, writers, cinematographers, composers, and special effects supervisors has not changed more than three percentage points in sixteen years. That was pretty disheartening, but theoretically, men should be just as able to craft female characters that don’t play to stereotypical tropes as women are at creating relatable male characters. So how did that go?

Lead Actresses Get Less Screen Time Than Lead Actors, Because Hollywood Is a Sexist Sh*thole

This Sunday is the 86th annual Oscars, a magical night where the Hollywood elite get together to celebrate themselves and be excruciatingly boring for three-plus hours. There’s one thing*, though, that Hollywood might not want to pat itself on the back for too much: This year’s lead actor nominees got, on average, 150% of the screentime of their female counterparts. Lead actresses: Getting screwed over for screentime in their own dang films.

*Plus many, many others.

The Naked Gun, Murder on the Orient Express Are Getting Remakes

It might be because my brain’s in Friday mode, but I’m having a tough time imagining two films that are more polar opposites than The Naked Gun and Murder on the Orient Express. One is a classic film veritably filled with cinematic legends bringing their Oscar-worthy talents to the table. And the other is based on an Agatha Christie novel. But today the two very different films have something in common: They’re being run through Hollywood’s remake machine.
