Tag: Josh Hutcherson (11-15 of 15)
• Based on the cast, the title for the latest animated film from Ice Age and Rio studio Blue Sky Studios sure is accurate. Beyoncé, Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried, Colin Farrell, Johnny Knoxville, Aziz Ansari, Pitbull, Jason Sudeikis, and Steven Tyler have all signed on for Epic, about a teenage girl (Seyfried) who finds herself in a mystical battle between good and evil in the forest. 20th Century Fox will release the film, which will be directed by Ice Age‘s Chris Wedge. It’s set to hit theaters May 24, 2013. [Deadline]
• Adam Sandler is in negotiations to replace Mark Wahlberg in the family football comedy Three Mississippi. The switch, made due to issues with Wahlberg’s schedule, instantly makes the premise of the film more plausible. Which is easier to believe: that a family headed by Will Ferrell would always win a Thanksgiving tackle football game against Sander’s family, or Wahlberg’s? Sean Anders (That’s My Boy) will direct.

• Olivia Wilde has joined Amy Adams, Joaquin Phoenix, Rooney Mara, and Samantha Morton in Spike Jonze’s untitled new film, reportedly about a guy who falls for a computer voice. [Deadline]

Cannes 2012 preview: Brad Pitt, Nicole Kidman, and Kristen Stewart bring Hollywood glitz to the French Riviera -- VIDEO
Since its inception in 1947, the Cannes Film Festival has been the ne plus ultra of international cinema, but rarely has the festival featured quite so many American filmmakers and Hollywood movie stars. The 2012 Cannes festival gets underway on Wednesday with the opening film, Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, and over the course of the subsequent 11 days, the festival will premiere films starring (deep breath) Brad Pitt, Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Kristen Stewart, Zac Efron, Shia LaBeouf, Robert Pattinson, Kirsten Dunst, Tom Hardy, Amy Adams, Viggo Mortensen, and Matthew McConaughey (in two movies!), with filmmakers like Anderson, Lee Daniels, and John Hillcoat screening their films in competition for the first time. Meanwhile, DreamWorks Animation’s Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted and the HBO TV movie Hemingway & Gellhorn are both premiering out of competition.
EW’s Owen Gleiberman will be detailing all his thoughts on the great and not so great at Cannes, but here’s a quick primer on what’s likely to light up the famed Croisette, in chronological order of their big premieres inside the cavernous Grand Théâtre Lumière. READ FULL STORY »
After Paris, je t’aime and New York, I Love You, it’s fast becoming an indie film staple: The loving portrait of a modern cosmopolitan city as an ensemble feature-length anthology film, comprised of more-or-less discrete chapters helmed by different, internationally flavored directors. 7 Days in Havana turns our attention to the Cuban capital, with each short film comprising a day of the week. Actor Benicio Del Toro helms the first segment, “El Yuma,” starring The Hunger Games‘ Josh Hutcherson as a young actor on a whirlwind tour of the famed city. The other segments are helmed by Pablo Trapero (Lion’s Den), Julio Médem (Sex and Lucía), Elia Suleiman (The Time that Remains), Gaspar Noé (Enter the Void), Juan Carlos Tabío (Strawberry and Chocolate), and Laurent Cantet (The Class).

Before Josh Hutcherson became cake icer/camouflage expert/fake boyfriend extraordinaire Peeta Mellark, he starred in Detention, a Scream/Breakfast Club mashup that took SXSW by storm last year. The film is set to hit 10 AMC theaters on April 13 — just in time to appease Boy with the Bread fanatics who are suffering from Hunger Games withdrawal.
Check out a trailer for Hutcherson’s high school horror comedy — which also stars Shanley Caswell, Spencer Locke, and Dane Cook, of all people, as a surely doomed principal — below. Think this film will contain enough Hutch to calm your post-Hunger pangs?
