Expect even more action in 'Insurgent': Exclusive photo

Society is heading to war in Insurgent (in theaters March 20)—which means we get to see Shailene Woodley’s Tris kick some serious ass.

Adapted from the popular Veronica Roth trilogy, Divergent‘s sequel will see Tris and Four (Theo James) continuing to lead the resistance against the corrupt government while evil mastermind Jeanine (Kate Winslet) tries to wipe out Tris and her kind. Woodley promises that there’ll be plenty of onscreen excitement.

“We all had this great vision to make this movie even more action packed,” says Woodley—which is why Woodley got to spend plenty of quality time in a harness, suspended in midair. “It pinches and it’s uncomfortable, but you feel like you’re Tinker Bell or Peter Pan.” Check out the film’s trailer below.

Reese Witherspoon and Cheryl Strayed find the meaning of 'Wild' in exclusive clip

In 1995, Cheryl Strayed hiked 1,000 miles up the Pacific Crest Trail in a purifying, last-gasp effort to become the woman her late mother died thinking she could be. Her self-destructive grief following her mother’s death from cancer had cost her her marriage, and it wasn’t until she was alone out in the wild for 94 days that she rediscovered herself.

But it took years for her to truly understand the meaning of that trek, says Strayed, who didn’t publish her best-seller, Wild, until 2012. “I turned to the trail at a time in my life when I felt lost, at a place that I didn’t know how to come to terms with the death of my mother,” Strayed says in an exclusive featurette about the film, which opened Dec. 3 and expands on Friday. “It became about what it means to bear the unbearable.” READ FULL STORY

'Jurassic World': See Chris Pratt ride with some raptors -- exclusive

It’s never an easy walk in Jurassic Park. In fact, guests typically end up running like hell. The fourth installment of Universal’s biggest franchise is no exception. Opening in theaters June 12, World is set 22 years after the original film. The dino-themed amusement park on Isla Nubla has been thriving for years, yielding four-star restaurants (hello, Nobu!) and beautiful resorts.

But in an effort to create new buzz and boost attendance, a hybrid dino is hatched—and that’s when the island’s human population, including dino researcher Owen (Chris Pratt), park operations manager Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard), and her two young nephews (Nick Robinson and Ty Sympkins), are sent sprinting in terror. “There are dinosaurs and there’s the other—there’s this thing that is not one of them, that is not of them,” teases director Colin Trevvorow (Safety Not Guranteed), who was specifically picked by Park director (and World executive producer) Steven Spielberg. Trevorrow adds, “There’s a lot of bold new ideas in the movie and I’m pushing it as far forward as I can. I know Steven didn’t want me to make a carbon copy of the earlier films. So we’re going for it.” READ FULL STORY

Ten things Andy Serkis can say about 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

“Who does Andy Serkis play in Star Wars: The Force Awakens?” is one of the thousand questions fans have been asking about next year’s Episode VII. And the actor himself seems to be bursting with the desire to talk about which galactic denizen he’ll be inhabiting.

But Serkis, best known as Gollum from The Lord of the Rings trilogy (and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey), the giant ape from Peter Jackson’s King Kong, and the smaller but more sophisticated simian Caesar from the new Planet of the Apes films, has been tight-lipped about Star Wars so far.

He’s also likely to be the highest-grossing actor of 2015, as he’s the only person with supporting roles in both The Force Awakens and the Avengers sequel Age of Ultron.

When Entertainment Weekly caught up with him recently at the premiere for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Serkis did offer a few Star Wars teases—and happily debunked some of the rumors making the rounds. Here’s what we learned … READ FULL STORY

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens': Mark Hamill on his emotional -- and scruffy -- return as Luke Skywalker

Luke Skywalker was a huge part of Mark Hamill’s past, and although he still can’t talk about the plot of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the actor has opened up to EW about the emotional experience of returning to that far-off galaxy.

The first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens roused extreme feelings from fans around the world, and Hamill says returning to role of farm boy turned Jedi Luke did the same for him.

“I don’t know that I’m even completely recovered from my state of shock,” Hamill says. “Part of the experience of [Star Wars] in my life was coming down from that, putting it behind me. We had a beginning, middle, and an end. And I certainly, in a million years, never expected to return. I thought, even if they do more trilogies, my story is over.”

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' character names revealed (in coolest way possible) -- exclusive

The-Force-Awakens.jpg

We finally got to meet some new characters in the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but now we’re getting to put some names with the faces.

J.J. Abrams, the film’s co-writer and director, and Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, have decided to reveal the identities of some of their new characters exclusively to EW—and they’ve done it in a retro fashion that should bring a smile to anyone familiar with the phrase “Collect ‘Em, Trade ‘Em.” READ FULL STORY

Watch 'Top Five' stars describe working with Chris Rock: 'Like playing with the '96 Bulls'

Chris Rock is one of the funniest people on the planet. He’s not arrogant about it and is quick to point to the comedy icons who influenced him—from Richard Pryor to Eddie Murphy. But Rock, 49, has been around long enough now to have a major impact on the comic stylings of the next generation of stand-ups. In Top Five, out Dec. 12, the hilarious romantic comedy that riffs on his own life as a comedian and movie star, he filled out the cast with his funniest friends, some of whom grew up idolizing Rock.

“It’s a dream come true,” Saturday Night Live‘s Michael Che says in an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip about the wild anything-goes scene where Rock’s character brings a New York Times reporter (Rosario Dawson) back to his ‘hood. “It really feels like you’re playing with the ’96 Bulls. This is the guy that a lot of us started comedy watching.” READ FULL STORY

Mae Whitman takes on Bella Thorne in exclusive trailer for 'The DUFF'

Every group of friends has a DUFF—a designated ugly fat friend. At least, that’s what Wesley (Robbie Amell) tells Bianca (Mae Whitman) in the upcoming comedy, The DUFF … right after he lets it slip that she’s the DUFF of her circle. So, now what?

In the comedy, from director Ari Sandel, Bianca enlists the help of Wesley to essentially de-DUFF herself and then overthrow the leader of the plastics school, Madison (Bella Thorne). Bianca’s other source of wisdom? Ken Jeong, obviously.

EW has an exclusive first look at the newest trailer for the film, set to premiere during tonight’s Pretty Little Liars Christmas episode, which airs at 8 p.m. on ABC Family.

The DUFF hits theaters February 20.

Exclusive teaser debut for 'The Walk': Joseph Gordon-Levitt stands atop the twin towers

That crosshatch construction is familiar, though we haven’t seen it for a long time. And when we do see it, we tend to picture it in smoldering ruins—not gleaming, strong, and new.

Then there’s the young man standing atop those 110 stories, stepping to the edge, balancing precariously on an I-beam that juts out into the void.

This is the first glimpse we’ve seen of The Walk—a new drama from director Robert Zemeckis, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt—and it might be easy to misconstrue the plot from these few brief moments. The movie tells a true story, but it’s not about 9/11. It takes place nearly three decades before, when the Twin Towers were newborns. And the man Gordon-Levitt plays isn’t contemplating suicide. He’s actually hoping to grasp a bit of immortality. READ FULL STORY
