Casting Net: Robert Pattinson heads to the 'Lost City of Z'; Plus Taylor Kitsch turns sadistic, more
• Robert Pattinson is reportedly set to star in the long-gestating adaptation of David Grann’s The Lost City of Z about the British explorer Percy Fawcett, who will be played by Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek Into Darkness).

Box office report: 'Gravity' scores third weekend win with $31 million; 'Carrie' and 'Escape Plan' both underwhelm
There’s no force strong enough to pull Warner Bros.’ $100 million smash Gravity back down to Earth. The film, which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, easily maintained its perch atop the box office in its third weekend, dropping just 28 percent to $31 million — good for a $170.6 million total after just 17 days.
Gravity is already the tenth highest-grossing film of 2013 in the U.S. (it surpassed Bullock’s other vehicle, The Heat, this weekend), and appears to be headed for a finish of at least $250 million, which would put it ahead of director Alfonso Cuaron’s Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which grossed $249.5 million in 2004. Worldwide, Gravity has already earned $284.8 million.
Sony’s $55 million Tom Hanks drama Captain Phillips spent a second week in second place, dipping 33 percent to $17.3 million for a $53.3 million total after ten days. The well-reviewed film is playing well ahead of Argo, which had earned $43 million at the same point in its run last year en route to a $136 million finish. Captain Phillips will need some major awards attention in the following months to reach those heights, but thanks to great word-of-mouth, it should reach (or get close to) $100 million domestically.

Everyone has a movie they saw too young. It’s basically a rite of passage — being self-aware enough to know that what you’re watching is beyond your years, but suffering through it anyway. Why do you think we include it in our Pop Culture Personality Tests?
At the Los Angeles premiere of Carrie, director Kimberly Peirce’s re-imagining of Stephen King’s 1974 horror classic (and Brian De Palma’s 1976 film), stars Chloë Moretz, Julianne Moore, and Judy Greer recounted their own tales of the movies that traumatized them in their youth.
Julianne Moore, the four-time Oscar nominee who also played Sarah Palin in HBO’s Game Change, has been cast as President Alma Coin, the steely leader of the rebellion in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2. In Suzanne Collins’ best-selling books, Coin leads the fight against President Snow and the Capitol that began in the mysterious District 13. Katniss and Coin are reluctant allies at the beginning, due to the need to rally around a symbol — Katniss as heroic Mockingjay — but she begins to suspect that Coin is as untrustworthy as the man she aims to replace.
The third and fourth installments of the Hunger Games are slated for release in November 2014 and November 2015. Catching Fire arrives in theaters on Nov. 22.
Carrie just wants to be normal.
Unfortunately, that’s not in the cards for the telekinetic teenage loner. Not when your abusive mother tells you that all the kids are going to laugh at you, shames you with bible verses (and some non-textual religious zealotry), and occasionally locks you in a closet as punishment.
Chloe Moretz stars as the tragic title character in Kimberly Peirce’s update of Stephen King’s novel and Brian De Palma’s 1976 film. Julianne Moore gets the lucky task of playing her psychotic mother.
Take a look at the latest blood-soaked trailer for Carrie after the jump.
Whenever characters in comedic movies or TV shows end up looking at porn they always do that “head-tilt” trope, which suggests whatever they’re seeing (and the audience isn’t) is so twisted they’re having a hard time telling up from down.
The new poster for Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Don Jon very subtly tricks the viewer into doing the same, at least if you want to get a good look at the seductive looks Julianne Moore and Scarlett Johansson are giving off.
Coincidence? Probably. But it’s also appropriate given this film’s twisted take on love and sex.

Julianne Moore gets her rock star on: Listen to the full soundtrack of 'What Maisie Knew'; Plus an exclusive clip
You’ve seen Julianne Moore play a lawyer, a housewife, a mother, and a post-apocalyptic survivor, but not until now have you seen her play a rock star.
For indie drama What Maisie Knew, Moore had to learn the swagger and the singing skills of a rocker. She plays Susanna, one half of the pair of negligent, self-involved parents of young Maisie (Onata Aprile). When Susanna and her art dealer husband (Steve Coogan) divorce, Maisie gets shuffled back and forth between the two of them, and soon her two new stepparents (Alexander Skarsgård and Joanna Vanderham) come to care for her more than her childish parents do.
Real-life rock group The Kills became Susanna’s band for the film. Moore sings with them for two songs on the soundtrack, “Night Train” and “Hook and Line.” READ FULL STORY
