Poster For DreamWorks Animation’s ‘Home’ – Starring Rihanna, Jim Parsons, Steve Martin & Jennifer Lopez
Twentieth Century Fox and DreamWorks Animation have debuted this new poster for ‘Home,’ a new feature film from the creators of ‘How to Train Your Dragon,’ ‘Shrek,’ and ‘The Croods.’ The film will hit cinemas on March 27th, 2015, and feature the voice talents of Rihanna, Jim Parsons, Steve Martin and Jennifer Lopez. Based on the 2007 Adam Rex’s children’s book ‘The True Meaning of Smekday,’ the synopsis for the film is as follows.
When Earth is taken over by the overly-confident Boov, an alien race in search of a new place to call home, all humans are promptly relocated, while all Boov get busy reorganizing the planet. But when one resourceful girl, Tip, (Rihanna) manages to avoid capture, she finds herself the accidental accomplice of a banished Boov named Oh (Jim Parsons). The two fugitives realize there’s a lot more at stake than intergalactic relations as they embark on the road trip of a lifetime.
Some interesting new details have emerged online about writer-director Josh Boone’s (The Fault in Our Stars) adaptation of Stephen King’s acclaimed novel ‘The Stand.’ Originally we heard that Boone will adapt King’s epic novel as a single, R-rated movie. However, appearing on Kevin Smith’s Hollywood Babble-On Podcast (via /Film), Boone has now revealed that he’s looking at adapting the book into four features. “I really wanted to do an A-list actor, really grounded, credible version of the movie,” says Boone. “…I sold [Warner Bros.] on a single, three hour movie… So what happened is the script gets finished, I write it in like five months. Everybody loves it. [Stephen] King loves it. $87 million is what it was budgeted at. Really expensive for a horror drama that doesn’t have set pieces… They came back and said ‘Would you do it as multiple films?’ and I said ‘F–k yes!’…So I think we are going to do like four movies.”

Out and about on the promotional rounds for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1,’ Jennifer Lawrence opened up briefly to IGN about the next “X-Men” flick, ‘X-Men: Apocalypse.’ On where we’ll find Mystique in the upcoming installment, the Oscar winner says, “She’s very complex. She’s a hero to her own race in a way which makes her a villain to the opposite race. I don’t really know where she’s gonna go. I’ve had a few conversations about where we’ll find her. She obviously needs to be in hiding somewhere.” While the plot of ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ is being kept under wraps, the film is said to focus heavily on the dynamic between Lawrence’s Mystique character and Michael Fassbender’s Magneto.
