First Photos of Chris Pratt & Jennifer Lawrence in ‘Passengers’

Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence are finally uniting on screen, and now we have our first look at the blessed union!

The two most wanted (and arguably most liked) actors in Hollywood co-star in the upcoming film Passengers, and Entertainment Weekly was lucky enough to get an exclusive first look.

Check out the photos below!

Pratt and Lawrence star in the film as spacecraft passengers bound for a foreign planet. They both awake from suspended animation 90 years too early, only to find that their ship is malfunctioning. They embark on a mission to save the 5000 “sleeping” passengers aboard the vessel from certain doom, and fall in love in the process.

Because what’s more romantic than imminent death in deep space?

“I honestly couldn’t ask for a better cast,” Passengers director Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game) told EW. “They’re so great together, and both of them are so hard-working. They take the characters so seriously and bring so much to the roles with charm and intelligence and charisma. They really went for it and it is phenomenal to watch.”

The film hits theaters on December 21, 2016.

Official New ‘The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2’ Trailer

What more can we say? Can it be November 20th already? Those of us who have already read the trilogy of books by Suzanne Collins, know what it about to go down. But there’s nothing like seeing this epic battle unfold on the screen. The trailer opens with a smoke and small fires erupting from the capitol intercut with President Snow preparing for war. Check out the latest trailer aptly titled “We March Together” so you can get as hyped as I am to see this amazing finale of the series!

With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow [Donald Sutherland] in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale [Liam Hemsworth], Finnick [Sam Claflin], and Peeta [Josh Hutcherson] – Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to liberate the citizens of Panem, and stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is directed by Francis Lawrence from a screenplay by Peter Craig and Danny Strong and features an acclaimed cast including Academy Award®-winner Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Academy Award®-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Willow Shields, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone with Stanley Tucci and Donald Sutherland reprising their original roles from The Hunger Games and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The impressive lineup is joined by The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 co-stars Academy Award®-winner Julianne Moore, Mahershala Ali, Natalie Dormer, Wes Chatham, Elden Henson and Evan Ross.

SDCC Day 1 Recap!

Hunger Games cast bids their farewell to the franchise

The Hunger Games franchise is coming to an end with Mockingjay Pt. 2, and sadly so are the Comic-Con appearances.

The cast and producers were at the convention for their panel, eagerly answering questions from fans in the audience.

Producer Nina Jacobson has some choice words for their end of the franhise. “The end is emotional for all of us,” Jacobson said. “We want to deliver the emotion and the politics of it, all the things that [author] Suzanne [Collins] wanted to say. But we don’t want to say good bye to each other. We all wish there were seven or eight books, not just three. It’s a very emotional conclusion. It’s emotional for us, but it will be emotional for the fans.”

One fan asked Jennifer Lawrence what is similar about her and her famous character, Katniss Everdeen, to which she responded in a very candid fashion “Nothing about us is similar. She’s brave and I’m an actress.”

Check out a few clips from the panel below! More are available on the franchise’s official Instagram page.

William Shatner addresses Star Trek 3 rumors

Will William Shatner appear in Star Trek 3? The actor was recently asked this question by a fan at Comic-Con, but according to Shatner our guess is as good as his!

The Star Trek alum told the audience a story about how he was contacted by J.J. Abrams way back in 2008 in regards to secretly appearing in his 2009 adaptation. This news was leaked by a reporter at an airport, who Shatner swears he didn’t tell. The incident, according to Shatner, seemed have rubbed Abrams the wrong way.

We didn’t get a solid yes or no from Shatner, and considering how Abrams was apparently interested in having him appear (at least at one point in time), his appearance in Star Trek 3 is still a very real possibility!

Revamped Flash costume revealed

Warner Bros. TV brought an entire showcase of hero costumes to Comic-Con this year, but the Flash costume in particular seemed a little different. Season one’s Flash has a costume with a red and gold emblem on the chest, but the costume shown at Comic-Con sports a white and gold emblem. What does this mean, exactly? Well, the most obvious answer is that the Flash’s costume will get a minor face lift for season 2!

This photo comes thanks to Aaron Couch over at The Hollywood Reporter.

Batman v Superman cast will hit the con floor for a surprise autograph session

Well, I guess it’s not a surprise anymore! Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill will be part of the Warner Bros. panel Saturday at Hall H, but Deadline is reporting that they’ll also be heading over to the DC Entertainment booth to sign autographs while they’re in town.

But as to when they’ll show up, that’s not for sure. They could either show up Friday night or on July 11 after their Hall H appearance. Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) will possibly show up as well, but that hasn’t been confirmed.

Transformers animated series coming to Machinima

Hasbro has partnered with the online gamer and video platform Machinima to produce a new animated series based on its Transformers: Combiner Wars line, The Hollywood Reporter exclusively reports.

Combiner Wars has groups of Transformers interlock to form one giant robot, known as a Combiner. Among the new robots are Superion and Menasor. They held the fate of the Transformers’ home world, Cybertron, in their hands.

Teen Wolf renewed for season 6

MTV announced today at Comic-Con that Teen Wolf will be renewed for season 6. A mid season trailer was also released during the event today.

Frank Miller’s Dark Knight III to Feature Additional 16-Page Mini-Comics

We don’t know much about the plot of  The Dark Knight III: The Master Race (which will launch this fall) but we do know one thing to expect: more! DC Entertainment has confirmed that in addition to the core 32-page comic book, each issue of Frank Miller’s eight-issue series will include an additional 16-page mini-comic illustrated by a variety of guest artists.

Halle Berry confirms that she would be up for a Storm standalone movie

Wolverine got his own, so why not Storm? When the actress was asked if she would be down for a Storm movie away from the X-Men franchise, she responded by saying “absolutely.” This doesn’t mean one is in the works, but with the help of her fans it very well could be. She urged her fans to speak up and spread the word!

Geekgirl World will be reporting all the events from SDCC all this week. Make sure to check our front page to get the latest and greatest news!
