With filming on 'Star Wars: Episode 7' scheduled to begin in just about four months, casting on the new movie is well underway. And, after many rumors and much conjecture, we've got one more rumor to add to the pile. Director J.J. Abrams, who likes to return to work with some of the same actors, has brought a friend from the 'Star Trek' universe with him: Benedict Cumberbatch is rumored to star in 'Star Wars: Episode 7.'
Just as recently as earlier this year, Matt Damon was talking that a return to the 'Bourne' franchise that turned him into an A-list action star was highly unlikely. But, this is Hollywood and sometimes what is completely unlikely one day (like Ben Affleck as Batman), becomes a reality the next. And so, Matt Damon is in negotiations to return for another 'Bourne' film along with 'Bourne Ultimatum' director Paul Greengrass.
'Fast Five' attempted - and quite successfully I might add - a reboot of sorts for the entire 'Fast and Furious' franchise, turning a series of movies about car racing into one exciting heist film. It was big and brash and sweaty and a complete success. So where do you go from there? 'Fast and Furious 6' attempts to answer that question by adding an -er suffix to all those adjectives above. Bigger, brasher, sweatier.
'Fast and Furious 6' is like 'Fast Five' on nitrous - director Justin Lin hits that proverbial turbo boost to go bigger, faster, stronger - and at times, that is a great thing. But when the NOS runs out, the drag race just turns into a drag.
It was one of the few 80s movies left that hadn't been remade but now it looks like the inevitable will happen: the John Hughes classic 'Weird Science' will be rebooted at Universal with a R-rated take on the comedy. But you know what? We've actually got faith and we'll tell you why.
Harrison Ford was a guest on last night's 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' to promote his movie '42' and naturally the discussion came around to 'Star Wars: Episode 7' and the future of the franchise. Ford tried to stay mum and say he couldn't talk about anything 'Star Wars,' but when he agreed to some questions from the audience, things got heated and Ford walked off the set. Watch video of the incident below.
'The Avengers' made over $1.5 billion (with a b) at the box office, which is enough to make it one of the biggest films of all-time. But Marvel executives weren't the only ones making money off the film. Star Robert Downey, Jr. confirms he made over $50 million to star in 'The Avengers' adding, "Isn't that crazy?" Yeah, pretty much.
'Captain America 2' has begun filming and you won't have to wait until Comic-Con to get your first look at Cap back in action. We've got your first 'Captain America 2' photo below! And what's better? How about confirmation that Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson will be co-starring in 'The Winter Soldier?' Yup, we've got that too!
Here's a sentence we never thought we'd type: 'G.I. Joe 3' is moving forward at Paramount and Hasbro. It's not that we didn't want a 'G.I. Joe 3' but after 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' was pushed back over nine months amid rumors of a major bomb, we were just beginning to think we were the only ones who wanted a 'G.I. Joe 3.' But 'Retaliation' made a surprising $41 million at the box office and now the 'G.I. Joe' trilogy is about to happen.
Having seen 'Evil Dead' (you can read our review here), we expected this new clip to cut away before the real nasty stuff starts. It doesn't. This new 'Evil Dead' clip is probably your best indication of the film so far. The tensions escalate to the point where things get bad and then they get worse and then they get even worse after that until you're literally sitting on the edge of your seat, half-cringing. Don't worry, it's OK to watch through your fingers.
After yesterday's report that Jimmy Fallon would take over 'The Tonight Show' from Jay Leno early next year, both hosts took the stage on their respective shows last night and delivered their opening monologues. One joked about the news; the other did not. It's probably not that hard to figure out who's who.
We're excited for 'Fast and Furious 6' - very excited. (Seriously, did you see that trailer?) But one movie that could get us just as excited, if not more, than 'Fast and Furious 6' would be a spinoff starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and his Hobbs character. And it just so happens that The Rock says that such a movie is something they're planning.
