The First 'Pride And Prejudice And Zombies' Trailer Is ... Something
Huffington Post - over 1 year
We knew "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" was coming, we just didn't know what to expect. And now ... we still don't.  The comedy-horror film adaption of Seth Grahame-Smith's 2009 parody of Jane Austen's 1813 classic (phew) isn't set for release until February 2016, but you can watch the first trailer above. Lily James stars as a(n even more) badass iteration of Elizabeth Bennet, whom we see here flanked by her sisters to fight the undead with little regard for their gowns. Lena Headey plays a yet-unnamed character. Our Mr. Darcy is Sam Riley of "Maleficent" fame, while Burr Steers, best known for "Charlie St. Cloud," directs.  Will "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" be two hours of good, campy fun? A mess of overwrought gore? A chance to witness Cersei Lannister's great cosmic reward: becoming the living dead??? Stay tuned.

Vivienne Jolie-Pitt Earned $3,000-a-Week for Maleficent Role: Report
US Magazine - about 4 years
Vivienne Jolie-Pitt is raking it in -- and she's only 4 years old! According to a contract obtained by TMZ, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's daughter earned $3,000 per week for her role in the upcoming movie Maleficent. Knox's twin sister plays the child version of Elle Fanning's Princess Aurora in the live-action film, a reimagining of the fairy tale Sleeping Beauty, told from the horned villainess' perspective. Jolie, 37, plays the titular role. TMZ adds that Vivienne also received a per diem of $60 per day on set. PHOTOS: Angelina Jolie's word travels In October 2012, Us Weekly exclusively reported that the globetrotting toddler's siblings, Pax and Zahara, filmed minor scenes in the fantasy flick; a rep for Disney had no comment. "They have smaller parts," a source revealed, adding that 9-year-old Pax and 8-year-old Zahara won't have speaking roles. "Shiloh was supposed to be in it, too, but she was bored and not in the mood during the day her part was supposed to happen, ...

Annette Bourdeau: Why 'On the Road' And Other Book-To-Movie Adaptations Fall Flat
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Sometimes, books just don't translate well onto the big screen. Want proof? Look no further than this week's release, "On the Road." While you've got to give director Walter Salles ("The Motorcycle Diaries") credit for tackling such an ambitious project, his adaptation of Jack Kerouac's beloved classic just doesn't work. It's way too long, for one, clocking in over two hours. But more importantly, it doesn't capture the essence of being on the road. Granted, that's a difficult thing to encapsulate on the big screen. It's certainly not easy to depict the moments of self-discovery that occur while gazing out of a car window deciding what to do with your life. That said, it seems as though the flick doesn't even try. Most of the travelling scenes are completely glossed over. Instead, we just see the characters jump from New York to San Francisco to Virginia and back again. Naturally, there's a lot more to the book that just being on the road. The movie does try to capt ...
