Movies based on characters from Marvel’s rich history of comic books are extremely popular right now – indeed they include some of the most popular offerings in cinematic history, with the likes of Iron Man 3 and the Avengers movie all grossing well over $1 billion worldwide and pretty much every movie earning well in to the hundreds of millions.
These movies are currently coming out of three different studios; The Marvel Cinematic Universe movies are made by Marvel themselves, the Amazing Spider-Man franchise is produced by Sony and the X-Men (and soon to be Fantastic Four) movies are produced by Fox.
All three franchises are in full flow and there are a boatload of new movies in the pipeline that we can’t wait to see. The movies in question all look set to have some popular existing characters, some great new characters, some explosive action and some »

With Tusk still a few weeks from it's release, Kevin Smith is hard at work on it's follow up, action comedy Yoga Hosers, the third part of his True North trilogy. Having already announced that Johnny Depp has signed on for the movie, which sees Smith and Depp's daughters Harley Quinn and Lily Rose play a pair of high schoolers facing of against an ancient evil threatening their town, the director took to Twitter that Stan Lee himself, taking a break from cameoing in Marvel movies, will be taking part in the movie. This marks the second time the pair have worked on a movie together, with Lee making an extended cameo in Smith's second movie Mallrats, released twenty years ago. »

We learned last week that Kevin Smith is already moving forward on his next project, an action comedy called Yoga Hosers that will be headlined by Smith's own daughter, Harley Quinn Smith, as well as Johnny Depp and his daughter, Lily-Rose Depp. Although it was already revealed that much of the cast of Tusk is set to appear as well, Smith revealed today on his Twitter account that a very familiar face is also going to play a part and posted the below image of Stan "The Man" Lee on the set! »
While the up-and-coming actor’s reps refused to comment, the site claims that its sources “confirm that Jack Huston is under consideration to take the Doctor Strange lead and is definitely in the running.”
If true, Huston is now one of many in contention for the role. Over the last few months, several names have been added to the mix, including Benedict Cumberbatch (who has denied involvement), Tom Hardy, Johnny Depp, Jared Leto, Deliver Us From Evil‘s Edgar Ramirez, Joaquin Phoenix, and Jon Hamm, who This Is Infamous actually claimed had been cast with their last Doctor Strange scoop.

★★☆☆☆From former Christopher Nolan cinematographer Wally Pfister and packing an all-star cast, there were plenty of reasons to be excited about Transcendence (2014). Sadly, the end result is a disappointing mess of a movie which fails to deliver on its strong premise. Transcendence follows Will Caster (Johnny Depp), one of the leading minds in artificial intelligence research along with his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall). That makes them the target of anti-tech extremists, and an assassination attempt leaves Will wounded and dying from a radioactive bullet. With time running out, Evelyn and colleague Max (Paul Bettany) hatch a desperate plan to upload Will's consciousness into a sentient A.I. construct.

This Is Infamous reports that "Boardwalk Empire" and "American Hustle" star Huston is the latest candidate, and the actor is "definitely in the running" but doesn't mention if previous actors linked to the project are also still in the running including Johnny Depp, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jared Leto, Tom Hardy and Joaquin Phoenix.
31-year-old Huston has been rumored for several Marvel roles before - he was up for Doctor Doom in the "Fantastic Four" reboot, and was a finalist for the Star-Lord role in Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy". He's well regard by his peers, but isn't a box-office name which would make sense for a part that requires a multiple film commitment.
How reliable is the rumor? On the one hand Huston is on many people's castings lists for »

Over the weekend I was called a "14 year old moron" on Facebook for writing a story about characters from Kevin Smith's Tusk appearing in his new movie, Yoga Hosers. Said reader thought I let loose a major spoiler. Yeah, he was wrong, I didn't spoil anything... but this next story will have him losing his shit! Or at least I hope it will for spite!
A new poster for Tusk was released today featuring your first look at...
Careful Now! Spoilers Are About To Abound! If You Do Not Want Anything Spoiled, Please Turn Back Immediately!
Ah, to be 14 again!

There have been no shortage of casting rumors when it comes to Marvel Studios' next big project, the Phase Three adventure Doctor Strange, which already has Scott Derrickson attached to direct from a script by Jon Spaihts. Actors such as Johnny Depp, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jared Leto, Tom Hardy, Joaquin Phoenix and, most recently, Jon Hamm have been mentioned as possible candidates over the past year. But the role has still not been officially cast yet. Today, This Is Infamous reports that Boardwalk Empire star Jack Huston is the latest candidate.
The site's sources reveal the actor is "definitely in the running," although it isn't known if any of the previously-mentioned actors are still in contention as well. Jack Huston was previously one of the finalists for the Star-Lord role in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, which was eventually won by Chris Pratt.
The actor also falls in line with »
Remember when I exclusively revealed that Marvel had taken a meeting with Johnny Depp about taking on the role of the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange? Well, while those talks unfortunately went nowhere, it looks like Marvel may be staying in the Depp mindset. According to This Is Infamous, the new frontrunner for the role is 31 year old Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire, American Hustle). Who does he remind you of?
He's certainly a more viable option for the studio. He's younger, he won't command an insane paycheck, and he doesn't have Depp's recent string of misfires working against him. He fits the Marvel mold much better.
This talk of Huston is just the latest in a line of apparent contenders. Mad Men's Jon Hamm was considered to top the list at one point, too. Even Joaquin Phoenix had his turn as "the guy in talks for Doctor Strange." So this could go nowhere, »

British actor Warwick Davis says he has “specific” fans—well-wishers who want to discuss just one of the several fantasy franchises in which he has appeared. “People talk about Star Wars, people talk about Harry Potter,” he explains, “and people talk about Leprechaun.”
Alert readers will have noticed that one of these franchises is not like the others. While Star Wars and Harry Potter have raked in billions of dollars, »

You can’t blame a gal for wanting to take a break from a scruffy, ambitionless b.f. like “Pause’s” Sami (Baptiste Gillieron) after four years. Audiences may feel the same way after just four minutes, though debuting Swiss director Mathieu Urfer’s intent is to make both Julia (Julia Faure) and us love this lost-puppy-like country musician by the end of what aspires to being a generic American studio romancer. Buoyed slightly by sweet English-language songs the helmer wrote himself, this otherwise flavorless feel-good pic would have been far more charming as a full-blown musical, a la “Once” with real production values.
Building on a background in shorts, Urfer has the directorial skills to make something far more interesting, but is limited by a screenplay (of his own design) that assumes we’ll empathize with a mopey character who, more than anything, needs a good shower and shave. »

As you can probably tell, this list feels more arbitrary than others. That’s not by design, but the unfortunate premise of the list leaves some room for interpretation. As we move forward, we will start seeing the films that, if you asked a lay person to give an example, would probably be a response. In other words, more people have heard of them, which, in turn, often makes them more “definitive.” Don’t worry, though – there are still some underseen and underappreciated gems the rest of the way through.
40. Werckmeister Harmonies (2000)
Directed by: Béla Tarr
It’s certainly not the swiftest film on the list, but you can’t expect much quick plot development from Béla Tarr. Wreckmeister Harmonies takes place in a tiny Hungarian town surrounded by nothing. The winter is incredibly cold, but it never snows. Yet the townspeople are excited in the middle of town as »

The Important News We got our first look at Paul Rudd as a superhero in Ant-Man. Meanwhile, Dwayne Johnson can't decide if he wants to be a DC superhero or villain.

Meanwhile, Pegg and Edgar Wright are...

Back in January, a “report” emerged claiming that Mad Men star Jon Hamm had signed on the dotted line to portray the Sorcerer Supreme in Marvel’s then-without-so-much-as-a-director-attached Doctor Strange movie.
While it came from a dubious source, the story still managed to pick up some traction; however, Hamm has now put the rumour to rest, confirming to Digital Spy that he’s never been approached by Marvel about the role:
“The funny thing about the internet is you can have rumors go on about possible jobs, and possible things that you have no idea… Maybe [it was true], I don’t know. You know, it’s funny when the internet knows more about you than you do, but maybe they’ve been talking to someboyd high up at Marvel. Maybe the internet was talking to Marvel. I don’t know. I know I certainly wasn’t approached about it, but I do like Doctor Strange, »

Eva Green never let her role as a Bond Girl typecast her, and, today, the actress is working more than ever.
After getting her start in an erotic Bertolucci film and breaking out in 2005's "Casino Royale," Green has played one captivating role after another. She was a standout in Tim Burton's poorly received "Dark Shadows" (2012) opposite Johnny Depp and is currently earning rave reviews for her mysterious and supernaturally-charged Vanessa in Showtime's "Penny Dreadful." This summer, she can be found as the sexy and manipulative Ava in Frank Miller's "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For."
2. Her last name is pronounced "grain" and is derived from the Swedish word "gren, »
