Chris Martin will join Jennifer Lawrence at the world premiere of her new Hunger Games movie


Chris Martin is set to join Jennifer Lawrence in London at the world premiere of her new film Mockingjay on Monday night, MailOnline has been told.

The Coldplay frontman, 37 – who reportedly split from the stunning Oscar winner late last month – will accompany the actress to the event, but will NOT join her on the red carpet.

Instead, a film source said he will do his ‘usual, fly-under-the-radar thing that he used to do with Gwyneth Paltrow’.

Taylor Swift previews new song inspired by New York


Kander and Ebb wrote “New York, New York”; Billy Joel crooned “New York State of Mind”; Jay Z dropped “Empire State of Mind.” Now, Taylor Swift is adding her take to the canon of songs about the city that never sleeps.

On Monday morning, Swift previewed “Welcome to New York,” the first song off her album 1989, which is, yes, about moving to New York.

“The inspiration that I found in that city is kind of hard to describe and hard to compare to any other force of inspiration I’ve ever experienced in my life,” Swift explains in a video. “It’s like an electric city.”

Swift is going for the “wide-eyed,” optimistic take on New York, so it’s not exactly like she’s treading any new ground here. (FYI: Taylor Swift’s New York is a Tribeca penthouse.) The song that results, which she did with OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, is a thumping anthem. It will become available at 12 a.m. on Tuesday on iTunes, according to Good Morning America

Int’l Box Office Update: ‘Guardians’ Now 3rd Biggest Marvel Movie Ever; ‘Dracula Untold’, ‘Gone Girl’, ‘Annabelle’ Hold Well; Local Action In France, Mexico; More


Guardians Of The Galaxy marked a return to the top of the international box office this weekend, thanks in large part to China — where its local title translates to Interplanetary Unusual Attacking Team, helmer James Gunn tweeted earlier this month. The Disney/Marvel space hit now has $69M there and was given a slightly wider berth than other Hollywood movies that are going out this month: GOTG opened on Oct 10 and will have had 11 days in the market before Hercules muscles in on Oct 21, followed in rapid succession by The Maze Runner on Oct 28 and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on Oct 31. The French-produced Lucy also has an Oct 24 release to further complicate matters.

Meghan Trainor Beats Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Lopez for Posterior Chart Dominance


It’s all about girl power high atop the Billboard Hot 100, although a couple of mighty all-male groups make notable moves, as well.

Meghan Trainor’s Epic Records single “All About That Bass” leads an all-female top five for a fifth straight week, breaking the record for the most weeks in a row that women have kept men out of the region in the chart’s 56-year history. Meanwhile, Maroon 5 blasts 33-8 with “Animals” following the premiere of the song’s controversial video and One Direction debuts at No. 13 with “Steal My Girl,” the lead single from the group’s forthcoming album, Four, due Nov. 17.

As we do each Wednesday, when the sales/airplay/streaming-based Hot 100 is tabulated, let’s look at the numbers behind the top 10 and more.

Bible Theme, Nicolas Cage Lead ‘Left Behind’ to Massive Box-Office Success


Left Behind, which opened Friday on 1,790 screens across the United States and 35 in Canada, garnered strong box-office attendance from moviegoers this past weekend, commanding $6.3 million ($3,452 per-screen average) in receipts.

Although questioned by critics, audiences turned the other cheek and flocked to theaters to watch Nicolas Cage lead a cast through the story of the rapture that brings biblical prophecy to life in modern times.

Producer and co-writer Paul Lalonde commented, “We are pleased with the response the film has had from moviegoers across North America. With a marketing budget less than one-tenth of what the studios spend on the movies we’re competing with, we had focused our marketing efforts toward our core Christian audience.

“We had a strong social presence and knew awareness in the core demo was strong,” he continued. “Our goal was to enlist those fans to spread the word and to bring friends and family who weren’t necessarily believers. I have to give thanks to director Vic Armstrong, star Nicolas Cage and the rest of the cast and team that brought it all together so well. But most of all, I want to thank the fans for supporting this movie, and all faith based movies, by actually buying tickets and going to the theater.”

Freestyle Releasing’s Co-President Mark Borde added: “We were bullish on this film from the very beginning. Originally slated for a 1,200 screen run In the U.S., we bumped it up to 1,790 theaters due to the pre-release demand. We are very pleased with these results in light of being up against five films, each in more than 3,000 theaters with far larger marketing budgets.”

Box Office: ‘Gone Girl’ Fending Off ‘Alexander,’ Downey Jr.

Gone Girl” should entrap audiences for the second week in a row, but the R-rated thriller faces stiff competition from a family film, “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.”

The Walt Disney Studios’ adaptation of Judith Viorst’s venerable children’s book about a young boy’s descriptor-worthy day should pull in $19 million when it unravels across 3,088 screens. It cost $28 million to produce and boasts Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner in lead roles. Look for “Gone Girl” to add $22 million to its winnings in its sophomore weekend, while another holdover, “Annabelle,” should do $17 million worth of business it is second week.

That leaves two other new releases nipping at the frontrunners’ heels, “Dracula Untold” and “The Judge,” which should do between $16 million and $18 million in ticket sales. Give the edge to the bloodsucker in that particular match-up.

“It’s a robust and very lively weekend,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak. “They’re going to be stacked up really tight at the top of the chart.”
