From "Spring Breakers" to "In Dubious Battle"
I’m sure I’m not the only person who tried, but just couldn’t quite get into Spring Breakers. I wanted to, I did! But, it just didn’t do it for me. That being said, I did enjoy James Franco‘s performance, and I’m looking forward to this upcoming John Steinbeck adaptation. Franco will be reuniting with his Spring Breakers co-star Selena Gomez for the new movie. Click inside for more!
Yes, please. More, thank you.
Little by little, we are getting news about this mysterious Star Wars movie from director Gareth Edwards. Last we heard, Aaron Paul was rumored to be on board, to possibly take on the role of Han Solo. And now it sounds like another fan favorite is joining in on the fun. Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany has reportedly been cast as the female lead in the movie. Click inside for more!
Back in early December we got our first look at the first trailer for the reboot/sequel film Terminator: Genisys and today, just before the big game, we get to see the Super Bowl ad for Genisys that will air on Sunday. The clip doesn’t really show anything new that we didn’t see in the first trailer but it is a more concise look at the still-confusing movie to come. Check out the “big game spot” above and then click below to see a new promo poster that stars the Terminator himself. More »

Kristen, Leslie, Kate and Melissa
Back in October we learned that the plan was definitely to cast all female leads for the forthcoming Ghostbusters reboot film. Today, The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the leads have been chosen … all that is left is for the ladies to sign on the dotted line. Actress Melissa McCarthy has already signed on for the film, THR says, but while Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon have yet to seal their deals, the report below claims that the contract signings are just a formality at this point. The women who will become the new Ghostbusters have been chosen … and I couldn’t be more pleased with this reboot casting. More »
Um, survey says, HELLZ YES!
Last March we started hearing rumblings about Disney‘s plans to reboot the Indiana Jones movie franchise and at the time we heard that Bradley Cooper was one of the actors being considered for the lead role (another big name that was bandied about was Robert Pattinson … lol). But that was before the universe fell in love with Chris Pratt in last summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Today we are hearing that Disney has shifted their focus toward Pratt, who they reportedly would like to see in the role of Indiana Jones. This new new casting news, I say OMG YES PLZ!!! More »
It's hip to be square
Last month we got our first listen of the new N.E.R.D. song Squeeze Me, written for the soundtrack of the upcoming animated film The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water. Today we get to see the just-released music video for the song. As you can see in the embed above, Pharrell and his N.E.R.D. cohorts Chad Hugo and Shay Haley get in on the animated fun by becoming square-faced versions of themselves. I know, I know … the song isn’t much but with repeated listens, I continue to like the song. It reminds me of Pharrell‘s Come Get It Bae, which is one of those infectious songs you can’t get out of your head when you hear it. The video is cute, check it out.
Back in February of last year, we first learned that Kate Mara, Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell were cast as Fantastic Four characters Sue Storm/Invisible Girl, Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Johnny Storm/The Human Torch and Ben Grimm/The Thing (respectively) in the newly rebooted Marvel Studios film franchise. In August, Kate shared a cute selfie photo of the F4 group when the movie wrapped filming production. Today, just a short time ago, Marvel released the first teaser trailer for Fantastic Four, which you can watch in full above. As you can see, the tone of this new F4 movie is much different from the original Fantastic Four movies that were released in the early ’00s. We do get glimpses of The Human Torch and The Thing in their superhero forms but, for the most part, this first trailer merely teases what’s to come when Fantastic Four opens in theaters this summer. What do you think of this first look at the movie? Are you impressed?

Wanted: A Crow
Plans to reboot the now classic 1994 film The Crow with a new franchise and a new star started up again in earnest in early 2012 and since then a string of actors have been reportedly attached to the project. First it was Bradley Cooper, then it was Tom Hiddleston … even Alexander Skarsgård‘s name has been bandied about. But in May of 2013, it was decided that actor Luke Evans would play The Crow in this rebooted franchise. Today we learn that, nope, Luke Evans will not play The Crow because he has bowed out of the project … leaving producers to begin the search, again, for a new Crow. More »
