Mar 10, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Divergent is without a doubt, one of the most highly anticipated flicks to come around since the first Hunger Games, with fans of the books practically salivating at the thought of seeing their favorite characters come to life. Sure, most people are excited to see Shailene Woodley and Theo James portray the two lovers at the heart of the story, but personally, I was more excited to see Ben Lloyd-Hughes and Christian Madsen play my two favorites from the book: Will and Al.

Plus, being able to say, “the book was better” seems to be a rite of passage nowadays (especially for the Game of Thrones folks). If you want to be ahead of the game you better get reading because each of the below 13 books have adaptations primed to hit theaters in 2015. Arranged in order of release date, this list has sweeping romance, murder mysteries, Irish Mob godfathers, mermaids, and an astronaut stranded on Mars.

The beginning of each new year is so exciting, with award shows and film festivals popping up all over the place, and the Sundance Film Festival is probably our favorite event.

Love New Music? Rising Aussie Artist Josef Salvat Needs To Be on Your 2015 Playlist

Jan 19, 2015  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

From the moment a close friend sent me the music video for This Life by Josef Salvat, I was obsessed. Almost bordering on indecent, his infectious beats are woven with introspective lyrics that feel intimate. Just in the span between our interview and the time of publication, Josef's song Diamonds (the track penned by Sia for Rihanna) was used in a Sony advert and recording indie...

From the Clooney Burn to Jennifer Lopez's "Globes": The Best Jokes, Flubs, & Photobombs From the Golden Globes

Jan 12, 2015  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Last night's Golden Globes brought us some surprising—though not disappointing—wins (congrats Wes Anderson!) and tons of on-point jokes from the comedic hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. A lot can be said for what the wins mean for the future of entertainment (especially in terms of television due to Netflix and Amazon scoring some important awards and the fact that every TV winner was a first-timer), and as always, the flicks that do well at the Globes have a pretty great chance at doing well in the Oscar race.

Jan 8, 2015  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

This video may look like CGI was involved in the editing, but it's actually comprised of clips from the last performance of Pixel, a super cool show that brings dancers into a virtual setting.
