Per THR, MRC and Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way are teaming up to adapt The Shining Girls, written by Lauren Beukes and generating buzz as one of this summer’s must-reads. The two companies, however, are not aiming for a feature adaptation but rather intend to develop the project for television. It’s a wicked sounding novel that goes a little something like this:

Saying I’ve been in a rut would be putting what I’ve been in, lightly. Whatever it is that I’ve been in, it hasn’t been fun and I’m not quite sure where I’m going now or how I’ll get there- I’m lost. I’m learning very quickly that I’m just not good at some things. School. Balancing life/work/health/education all at once, while retaining my sanity. Definitely not good at coping with extreme stress. I’m not great at being consistent.

The only things I’ve ever been good at are photography, and getting back up after being knocked down.I guess you could say that though I lack focus at times and change my mind often, I am persistent about rebounding from my failures, and oh boy have I failed lately. I’m finding myself basically back at square one in almost every aspect of my life and its really hard to be back here

It’s come to my attention over time that some characters in The Hunger Games trilogy Haymitch-haymitch-abernathy-28166477-1024-768just don’t get as much attention, and face it, as much love as the rest of them. Sure, Peeta’s got the whole artist with a heart of gold thing going on, and Finnick is the heartthrob with the sensitive streak a mile long, and Katniss is the Mockingjay and the heroine, but what about the trilogies resident surly drunk Haymitch Abernathy? Doesn’t he deserve some intense love, and scrutiny just like the three mentioned above? Well, I sure as hell think he does!

Where to begin with Haymitch though? Yeah, he’s a surly drunk, and an all around ass-hat half the time, but he serves a purpose, and he’s far from lacking in the brains department. However, sometimes I feel like the characterization of him as simply the drunk detracts from the reasons why he’s…

¿Por qué no se me ocurrió?

En “Inside Out” este maravilloso documental observarás como una idea local paulatinamente cobra fuerza y se convierte en un poderoso movimiento global.

De la mano del artista francés JR, serás testigo de su viaje “evangelizador” por muchos países observando la evolución del proyecto fotográfico popular con más participación en el mundo.

Summer, the time of year we all flock to the multiplexes as the season plays host to the year’s biggest and most anticipated blockbusters and big-budget sequels. This season, a surge of superheroes hit the big screen, starting with the recent release of Iron Man 3 to the upcoming releases of The Wolverine and Man of Steel, and a heavy stream of sci-fi and action flicks like Star Trek: Into Darkness, Elysium, Pacific Rim, R.I.P.D., World War Z, Fast and Furious 6, and White HouseDown, allwhich are set to dominate the summer box office.

Among the crop of big budget blockbusters however are a number of overlooked, smaller films that are most definitely worthy of the same attention. These films, which feature some incredibly talented ensembles, show that the summer isn’t solely reserved for superheroes and alien fighting robots. For those moviegoers looking for…

What would happen if Buffy and Edward Cullen met? All the answers are in the following video

Let me start with “Buffy the vampire slayer”. When I was just a little girl… actually, I was in my early teens when I discovered that TV show, otherwise I doubt my mother would have allowed me to watch it. I didn’t miss a single episode and I remember thinking that I would get the whole DVD collection when I could afford it. I used to tell myself the same thing about X-Files but it is a bit dated now. The same phenomenon happened when, suddenly, I had the means to purchase the Buffy DVD collection: I had grown up and I didn’t think I would enjoy it that much. That being said, I’m still a big fan of Buffy’s witty catchphrases.
Buffy and her friends were possibly four or five years…

“The ballet I’m thinking of wouldn’t actually be a film,” Whedon explained, “although I have many sort of floaty ideas, this would actually be performed by a ballet company on a stage. I’ve had this in my head for a long time. And, well, I’ve never actually told anybody anything about it. I’ll only say this much: it’s about a library.”

Whedon is the director of the modern Much Ado About Nothing film that’s had a considerable amount of buzz (June 7 release) and the upcoming Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. television series. Must see. I’ll certainly be watching out for more news about his library ballet concept!
