Based on the bestselling YA book series, 'Vampire Academy' seemed a promising movie adaptation. Combining the cutthroat world of high school with the bloodlust of vampire fiction, it had an enticing starting point. Adding to its allure were a writer and director who have defined the modern teen queen movie, Daniel Waters, the screenwriter of 'Heathers,' and Mark Waters, the director of 'Mean Girls.' So how did the 'Vampire Academy' turn out so lifeless?
Philip Seymour Hoffman's tragic death occurred while he was nearing the end of his work on the two-part 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay' movies, and while he only had seven days of filming left, those days included at least one key scene.

And they've done the impossible with 'The LEGO Movie', creating a wonderful narrative that perfectly captures the wonder and joy of playing with the iconic building blocks.

When the script for his upcoming project, 'The Hateful Eight,' leaked, an angry and defiant Quentin Tarantino said he was completely dropping the project. "I have no desire to make it. I’m done.

Last week saw the release of Vanessa Hudgens' brave dramatic turn in 'Gimme Shelter.'
