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.

To No One’s Surprise, Frozen Is Now The Highest-Grossing Animated Movie Of All Time

$1.072 billion to date. That’s billion with a B.

Four months and two Academy Awards after its release, Frozen has officially surpassed Toy Story 3 as the top-grossing animated film to date. This makes it the first billion-dollar movie to come out of Disney Animation Studios. I’d say that’s worth building a few snowmen over.

Divergent Leads The Box Office This Weekend, Is Officially Getting A Sequel

I think it’s fair to say at this point that moviegoers are totally cool with female-led action films.

The weekend isn’t over yet, but box office reports put the film on track for a $60 million (or so) debut. By comparison, Muppets Most Wanted took second place this weekend, earning an estimated $18 million. Well done, Divergent. Well done.

And Now, The International Trailer for Jupiter Ascending

The Japanese trailer for Lana and Andy Wachowski’s upcoming sci-fi film hit the internet this week. It’s got spaceships, planets, condescending aliens, which is all I really need to know. That said, am I the only one who gets a deep sense of foreboding whenever I see Sean Bean on screen?

Everybody Get Up, It’s Time To Slam Now: Space Jam Is (Maybe) Getting A Sequel

I didn’t know that I wanted a Space Jam sequel, but now that the idea’s been planted in my head, I refuse to let go. According to Deadline, Warner Bros. is on board for a follow-up to the 1996 feature-length shoe commercial hit family film — though some quibbles over casting have raised questions about what’s actually in the works.

Let’s Get Surreal: A Supercut of Dream Sequences
