No surprise Batman movie, I'm afraid
A few days ago, thanks to a mysterious screencap, a rumor started going around regarding the possibility that Warner Bros. was planning to release a surprise Batman movie by year’s end. Henry Cavill, the actor who is playing Superman these days, has chimed in to squelch the rumor and make clear once and for all that there will only be one Batman V. Superman movie — next year’s Dawn of Justice. More »
Well alright, alright, alright, alright
At 23-years old, actor Matthew McConaughey was a hungry actor in Hollywood looking for his big break. He auditioned for a role in what would become the cult classic movie Dazed and Confused and the rest was almost history. It may have taken a few more movies (and a lot more years) for Matthew to become a bona fide movie star but his work in Dazed was the first step toward a very successful future. A portion of McConaughey‘s audition tape for Dazed and Confused has been released and as you can see above, the video is as wonderfully amazing as you dreamed it would be. Click the embed above to see how it all got started for Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey.
"This vulnerable world needs something more powerful ..."
After the release of the FIRST trailer in October and a SECOND extended trailer in November, Marvel Studios released late yesterday the newest trailer for the upcoming superhero sequel film The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Ultron will storm theaters on May 1 and from the look of this new trailer, it will do so with a huge onslaught of action.

Oh, man. This movie is going to be amazzzzzze!!!! Have a look above and see what you think.
Coming next Xmas
After the excellent job that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler did last night as hosts of The Golden Globe Awards, Universal Pictures is teasing us today with an upcoming movie that stars Tina and Amy as sisters. The good news is that this first teaser clip looks very promising. The bad news is that we have to wait until the end of the year for Sisters to be released in theaters. Have a look at this teaser clip above and let’s start counting down the days until Tina and Amy appear on the big screen together this Xmas.
Contract re-negotiations FTW
This is a really interesting story, and I’m very curious to see if we’ll be hearing similar reports for other movies. Before the Sony hack, some of us may have actually believed that the people running things in Hollywood weren’t racist and/or sexist, but those e-mails spoke volumes about the true state of affairs over there. We learned that, even though Jennifer Lawrence was the highest grossing actor of the year, she made less money than some of her male co-stars. And now we’re learning that Academy Award winner Charlize Theron was in a similar boat. However, she just re-negotiated her contract for the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman sequel and is now getting an equal salary to Chris Hemsworth. Click inside for more!
First Look Photos
Ant-Man, as we know, is featured on the cover of this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine. Additionally, first look photos are published in the new issue and you can see many of them in the gallery presented here. We have a few months to get acquainted (or reacquainted) with this Marvel Comics superhero before the movie opens later this year so I appreciate all of this promo. I love Paul Rudd in everything so I’m sure I’ll love him in Ant-Man, too. These are great promo photos, I’m looking forward to seeing more from Ant-Man.

Probably not but ...
So, a screenshot has surfaced that purports to be evidence that Warner Bros. is planning the surprise release of a stand-alone Batman movie starring Ben Affleck this October … but the chances are more likely that it is merely evidence of a hoax created by an inventive fanboy/girl. Even so, something like this could feasibly fall within the realm of exciting possibility so it might be fun to at least entertain the idea that a secret Batman movie might be coming our way … even tho we can all be fairly certain that no such thing is going to happen.

'Let's Kill Ward's Wife' stars Foley, Patrick Wilson, and other hotties
If you’re following me on Instagram, you already know that the past few months have been very cool for me, at least in terms of my work. One major highlight was my interview with Scott Foley, after which I received many-a-crazed text message from friends and family members. It was awesome. As a long time Scandal fan, and proud, unwavering member of Team Jake, I practically fell over myself when reps for his movie reached out to me. It took everything in my to reply with, “Yes, I’d be interested in interviewing Scott Foley” as opposed to, “SPLOOOOOOOSH YESPLEASEMORETHANKYOUMMMHGSGAIUG” but I did it, and we had a great talk about his directorial debut, Let’s Kill Ward’s Wife.

"it’s not set in stone ... we’re working on it"
Rumors of a movie version of the hit Broadway musical Wicked: The Untold Story of the Witches of Oz have been going around for years now but new comments by producer Marc Platt have kicked up talk about the Wicked movie once again. According to Platt, the film version of Wicked could be in theaters by next year … even tho the movie hasn’t been officially greenlighted just yet. A lot of work is going on behind the scenes, he says, and a 2016 release date is the goal but … nothing is “set in stone” just yet. Even still, talk of a 2016 release date is very exciting :) More »
