When 'Star Wars: Episode 7' was initially announced, a 2015 release date was attached, leading everyone everywhere to believe that J.J. Abrams' film would arrive in May of that year. And why wouldn't they? All six previous 'Star Wars' films have opened in that month and that month has certainly been kind to the franchise. However, new buzz suggests that while the latest entry in the saga will indeed hit theaters in 2015, it'll break tradition and do so a little later in the year.
Anyone who has been following superhero movies knows that Robert Downey, Jr. has signed on to return as Tony Stark in 'The Avengers 2' and 'The Avengers 3,' but his future as Iron Man beyond that is up in the air. It's unlikely that Downey (who will be 53 when the third 'Avengers' film hits) will occupy the role forever, and Marvel hasn't been shy about recasting the character should the need ever arise.
And that brings us to the weird news bit of the day: Mark Wahlberg wants to takeover the part.
It's been rumored for some time now, but it's now official: the great(ly troubled) Mel Gibson has joined the cast of 'The Expendables 3,' where he'll play the main bad guy. He's also being joined by Antonio Banderas, another fading star who has been rumored to join the film for quite some time.
The last time we saw Indiana Jones, he was encountering aliens and disappointing millions of movie fans all over the world with 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.' Although we're just now washing the taste of that disastrous production out of our mouths, talk of an 'Indiana Jones 5' has long persisted, and now there may be enough distance for us to actually be a little interested. What does series star Harrison Ford have to say on the matter?
For the past few months, it looked like Steven Spielberg was going to follow up the massive success of 'Lincoln' with 'American Sniper,' a war film about the career of slain Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. Despite plenty of momentum and the starpower of Bradley Cooper in the lead role, Spielberg, along with production company DreamWorks, has dropped the project and vanished to wherever he goes when he needs to decide what movie he wants to direct next.
Despite having a stable of iconic characters that are known throughout the world, Nintendo has stayed pretty clear of the movie business, with the disastrous 'Super Mario Brothers' movie being the video game company's only real Hollywood experience. However, a recently revealed video proves that they haven't been without offers. Did you know that animation company Imagi tried to pitch a Legend of Zelda movie a few years back? We didn't either.
We were already excited to see 'American Hustle' because it's the latest film from the always-interesting David O. Russell and because it has one of the strongest ensembles in recent memory. But now, with the release of two new images, we're really excited to see it because it apparently pulls no punches when it comes to completely '80s-ifying stars Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper. They look ludicrous...and also kind of awesome.
Once upon a time, we would have turned up our noses at the thought of an impending remake of 'Bloodsport' and said something like, "Is there no originality left in Hollywood these days? A Jean-Claude Van Damme film? Really?" These days, the news of an impending 'Bloodsport' remake can barely get a shrug out of us. But yes, they're remaking 'Bloodsport.'
After a few years of cool, iconic titles like 'The Dark Knight' and 'Man of Steel,' it looks like the upcoming Batman and Superman crossover film is going to be a bit more blunt. Although an official title wasn't revealed at the Warner Bros. Hall H presentation at Comic-Con 2013, screenwriter David S. Goyer was a little more candid at a panel celebrating the 75th anniversary of Superman.
Dennis Farina, the hugely recognizable veteran of film and television, has passed away at the age of 69. Over the course of his 32-year career, Farina specialized in playing cops and other authority figures, utilizing his background in law enforcement to springboard into acting.
If you're looking forward to the long-in-the-works adaptation of 'Ender's Game,' today must certainly be a very exciting day for you. First, we got that cool promotional video that featured the one and only Harrison Ford requesting your help in taking down alien invaders. Then, we had our comprehensive report from the film's Comic-Con 2013 panel. Now, a new clip from the upcoming sci-fi movie had made its way online, giving us our best look yet at the film.
After years of sharing the same block on Fox Sunday nights, 'The Simpsons' and 'Family Guy' are finally doing something that no one ever expected: they're crossing over. To be more specific, an upcoming episode of 'Family Guy' will see Peter Griffin and his family stumble into the town of Springfield, where they encounter the Simpson family.
