And the 'Star Wars: Episode 7' news just keeps coming. The latest rumor: '12 Years a Slave' star and likely Oscar contender Chiwetel Ejiofor was at the Bad Robot offices, which means he might have met with J.J. Abrams about the new 'Star Wars' film. Which means we might see Ejiofor in the new 'Star Wars' movie. Maybe. We hope so!
The first trailer has arrived for Jim Jarmusch's 'Only Lovers Left Alive,' in which Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton play eccentric vampires reunited after years of being separated on two different continents. There's lots of big hair, sunglasses, rock music, and blood -- obviously.
In possibly the most heartwarming news of the year, the Make-a-Wish foundation has granted the wish of five year-old Batman super fan Miles, who will get to dress as his favorite crime-fighting superhero and defeat some of the caped crusader's famous villains. The foundation is turning San Francisco into the streets of Gotham for a day just so little Miles can make his dreams come true!
With J.J. Abrams hard at work on 'Star Wars: Episode VII' to meet a December 2015 release deadline, someone has to step up and direct 'Star Trek 3.' Plenty of names have been tossed about as potential replacements, and now we can add a new one to the running: 'Attack the Block' director Joe Cornish, which might be the best possible choice we've heard so far.
Zack Snyder did some filming on Saturday night in L.A. for 'Batman vs. Superman,' which is what Warner Bros. themselves referred to as the title. The filming took place at a football game, set up at Weingart Stadium, which serves as the set of the Gotham City University home stadium. The Gotham City team, in black and gold, was playing against the Metropolis State University team, in red and white. If we've learned anything from 'The Dark Knight Rises,' no football game is safe as long as Batman is around.
Thanks to the millions of people who tuned into, tweeted, and confused their moms on Facebook about 'Sharknado,' SyFy is continuing to ride the shark schlock horror wave with 'Avalanche Sharks,' which is exactly what it sounds like. But in case you need more of an explanation, you can watch this trailer for the upcoming "film," which continues SyFy's tradition of featuring purposely bad movies for those who find actual movies to be just a bit too demanding of their intellectual faculties.
In an inspired bit of cross-promotion, Will Ferrell has gotten into character as Ron Burgundy to sell the new 2014 Dodge Durango. With his trademark absurd wit and charm, Burgundy promotes both the upcoming 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' and the shiny new Dodge vehicle in a series of commercials that make us wish that Ron Burgundy would star in every TV ad.
'Machete Kills,' Robert Rodriguez's follow-up to 2010's 'Machete,' ditches the grindhouse aesthetic and homage, and instead tries to emulate a late-'80s, early-'90s action flick -- basically, Rodriguez made the kind of movie he often makes. The result is an uninspired, joyless and oft-trashy exercise in self-indulgence. Rodriguez has spent his career making films the way he wants in his own backyard, and while you kind of have to admire the audacity of it all, the intent is questionable at best.
James Wan's 'Insidious: Chapter 2' opened at $41 million over the weekend -- for a film that only cost around $5 million to make, that's a massive success. Combine that with his $40 million opening for this summer's 'The Conjuring' (making it one of the most successful horror films of all time), and James Wan has become the horror master. FilmDistrict agrees, and the studio is already moving ahead with 'Insidious 3.'
Director James Wan and writer Leigh Whannell return to the spooky fun house with 'Insidious Chapter 2,' marking Wan's second horror film release in as many months after this summer's surprise hit 'The Conjuring.' Unfortunately, the sequel gives diminishing returns as the scares are dialed down and the laughs (intentional and unintentional) are cranked way up.
While everyone is still debating whether or not Ben Affleck will make a good Batman in Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel 2,' which will feature a "Batman vs. Superman" element, we can tell you who was almost cast: Josh Brolin, who confirms that he was considered for the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman in the upcoming sequel. Obviously, it didn't work out, but Brolin doesn't have any hard feelings about it.
We've seen some glimpses of Paul Giamatti as Rhino in 'Amazing Spider-Man 2,' though we haven't seen the real deal just yet -- all the pics have been of the actor in a sort of skeleton suit, designed to allow computer generated effects to be placed around him. And while Giamatti says we likely won't see Rhino just yet, he did offer up a few details about his mysterious villain character.
