Some Assembly Required
The cast and crew of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, along with many other luminaries from the Marvel Cinematic and Television Universe convened at The Dolby Theater in Hollywood, CA last night for a massive premiere event. As you can see in the gallery presented here, all of the main stars of The Avengers were in attendance along with actors from other Marvel Studios movies and television shows … as well as iconic director Joss Whedon and the truly legendary Stan Lee. It was a big ol’ party for everyone involved. Click through the gallery to see photos from the red carpet arrivals as well as a few photos from the after-part that, I understand, ran well into the night/wee hours of the morning. The countdown for the theatrical release of Age of Ultron has officially begun. Very soon, we will all be able to see one of the most anticipated movies of 2015.

Starring Michael B. Jordan!
It was previously reported that Sylvester Stallone was working on a Rocky spin-off movie (as well as a Rambo sequel movie) and today we get our first official look at the Rocky spin-off (courtesy of Stallone‘s official Instagram profile). Creed will star Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Johnson — the son of Rocky character Apollo Creed — and Stallone will reprise his role as Rocky Balboa, his boxing trainer. I mean, just when you thought there were no more Rocky stories to be told, here comes another one.

Meet his son, Derek Jr.
In February we learned that filming production of the long-awaited sequel film Zoolander 2 would take place in Rome, Italy but in March, filming actually began DURING Paris Fashion Week (like, right there on the runway). Today we get another update from the Zoolander 2 set from actor Ben Stiller who reveals that his Derek Zoolander character will have a grown son in the sequel. Stiller posted a photo of actor Cyrus Arnold on his official Instagram profile and introduced him as “son of Derek”. LOL. Meet him below. More »
Back to the Grind
Back in February, we got to see the first poster for the upcoming male stripper sequel film Magic Mike XXL. Today, we get to see the just released second poster for the flick. Like the first poster, actor Channing Tatum — Magic Mike, himself — is the sole star of this new poster … which is probably why it was Tatum that first released the poster on his official Twitter profile. In this poster, Channing does what he does in these Magic Mike movies so, yeah, you’re gonna wanna see this poster. More »

"Everyone has secrets. Everyone tells lies. Everyone is fair game."
Way back in April of 2013, we first learned that MTV decided that it would be a good idea to adapt the Scream horror movie franchise into a TV series. Today we get to check out the just-released first trailer for MTV‘s Scream: The TV Series (clever title, no?). As you may know, the Scream franchise enjoyed a trilogy of very successful films in the late ’90s, followed by a reboot/sequel film released 10 years later in 2011. Now, we can look forward to the MTV version of the story … or something. As you can see in the trailer above, the TV series will be as self-referential as the movie franchise was but updated for these modern smartphone times, I suspect. It looks like the Scream killer will NOT be wearing the traditional Ghostface mask but, at this point, we don’t know what the killer (or, more likely, killers) will be wearing. Check out the trailer, see what you think. Do YOU believe that the Scream movie plotline will work as basic cable TV series?
"Heroes don't get any bigger"
Back in January we got to see the first trailer for the new Marvel Studios superhero movie Ant-Man and just a few days ago, we got a closer look at the villainous character Yellowjacket as he will be seen in the film. Today we get to check out the just-released second trailer for Ant-Man that is, THANK THE GODS, much more exciting to watch. The first trailer came off as moody and not very fun. This second trailer is much livelier, packed with action scenes and lots of footage of Ant-Man using is special powers. THIS is the trailer that will get folks in the theater to see the movie. You MUST watch to the very end to see the cameo by Thomas the Tank Engine. LOL. Click the embed above to watch this new trailer, Ant-Man hits theaters on July 17.

Plus, check out a fun new Deadpool promo photo
Ryan Reynolds, currently hard at work filming the new Deadpool movie in Vancouver, British Columbia, has been tweeting up a storm in his free time in order to answer questions posted to him by fans online. When asked if he had yet named Deadpool‘s pair of katana swords, Ryan confessed that he named them after one of the Golden Girls … actually, he named them after one of the famed actresses that played one of the Golden Girls, but you get my meaning. He also shared a fun new promo image of Deadpool that re-confirms that the movie version of the character will stay very, very true to the spirit of the comic book version of the character. Click below to learn the names of Deadpool‘s katanas and see this new promo image in full. More »
Isn’t it such a great feeling to know that you totally called something? I totally called Eddie Redmayne being a thing. It’s so ridiculous but I truly believe that, because I used to obsess about his minor character in The Other Boleyn Girl so much (when I watched it every night for about 6 months), I put all this positive energy into his career. And now, here he is—an Oscar winner for his role in The Theory of Everything, and a frontrunner for the lead in the Harry Potter spinoff, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

PLUS, The Hatbox Ghost WILL RETURN to Disneyland in May
Waaaaay back in 2010 we first learned that director Guillermo del Toro officially signed on to direct a feature film for Disney based on the amusement theme park ride The Haunted Mansion and today, all these years later, we are hearing that actor Ryan Gosling is close to joining the cast of the film. Despite Ryan‘s desire to focus more on directing over acting, it sounds like he is willing to make an exception for del Toro and Disney. Additionally, there is other very exciting Haunted Mansion news for fans of Disneyland. The long fabled Hatbox Ghost is officially making his return to the Disneyland attraction for the first time since 1969! So much great Haunted Mansion news, read on!! More »
