Crazy Rich Asians starring Gemma Chan

Crazy Rich Asians made a very impressive debut last weekend, opening to $25 million and finishing with a grand total of $36 million if you count the five-day total after it officially opened on Wednesday. The rom-com captivated the world with its fantastic performances from Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Awkwafina, and Michelle Yeoh. And now it looks like a sequel is in order.

According to new reports, the creative forces that helped put the first movie together are getting back together for a sequel titled China Rich Girlfriend — both of which are adaptations of author Kevin Kwan‘s books of the same name. More on the story below. Minor spoilers will follow.

Y: The Last Man Vertigo

A little over a year ago it was reported that the long in development movie based on Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra‘s comic book series Y: The Last Man was no more, and that it was instead being developed as a TV series for FX.

The adaptation is still in development today, but has now taken a big step toward becoming a reality. It’s being reported that Michael Green has signed on to be the series’ showrunner. Green is already currently the showrunner of another highly anticipated TV series, Starz’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods along with co-showrunner Bryan Fuller. Fuller also took on a second showrunner job, the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery TV series, but departed that project last month.

Y: The Last Man Image

A movie adaptation of writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Pia Guerra‘s extraordinary comic book series Y: The Last Man has been in the works for many years now, but it never felt right. The series ran 60 issues, and there was far too much great content to fit into a movie. Even a trilogy of movies would have been difficult. On top of that many believed the movie would have to be R-rated, and that was something the movie studio wasn’t very likely to do. No, this was something that belonged on TV somewhere with few rules and restrictions such as HBO.

If you were among those who wished with crossed fingers that Y: The Last Man would not work out as a movie and would one day end up being turned into a TV series, it appears that your wishes are coming true. It’s being reported that the comic is now being developed as a series at FX.

Homer's The Odyssey

The Hunger Games, one of Lionsgate’s most lucrative franchises, is coming to an end this year.

Mockingjay Part 1 Katniss

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1
Directed by Francis Lawrence
Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks
Blu-ray | DVD | Instant Video
Lionsgate Home Entertainment
Release date: March 6, 2015

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, which stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Stanley Tucci, and Donald Sutherland, gets it home video release today and it is worth buying for the special features alone.

Based on the first half of the third book of The Hunger Games trilogy, Mockingjay Part 1 continues the story of Katniss Everdeen, formerly of District 12, who sacrificed herself to join the Hunger Games when her sister’s number came up in the worst lottery ever. Partnering with Peeta, they combine forces to beat the system. Catching Fire, the second book in the trilogy, had Katniss and Peeta go through the Games again, this time with all the previous winners. In Mockingjay Part 1, Peeta had been left behind at the Capitol and is their spokesman, and Katniss is recruited by Plutarch and President Coin. She decides to be their Mockingjay, reluctantly, but comes to realize that “with great power comes great responsibility.”
