Blockbuster season is almost upon us, but what will next summer's big hitters be? Here's a roundup
Once upon a time, summer blockbuster season 2015 was set to be packed with the biggest collision of big franchises we'd ever seen together. However, one by one, lots of these films moved away to other dates. As such, you won't be seeing Star Wars: Episode VII, Pirates Of The Caribbean 5, Independence Day 2, Batman Vs Superman or Finding Dory in a cinema next summer.
But even with those films gone, there's still no shortage of huge movies battling for your cash in a year's time. And as is traditional for us at the start of summer blockbuster season, we've taken a look at what's coming up in 12 months' time.
Going on a semester abroad to Florence or Paris is so stock. Now there is a “Semester on Sunset.” Boston-based Emerson College opened a new Los Angeles Campus in Hollywood at 5960 Sunset Blvd, with 124 students moving in this past January. Larry David (a current parent), Tom Bergeron (a former parent), Vin Di Bona (an alum), Norman Lear (an alum), Max Mutchnick ('87), Jennifer Coolidge, and Maria Menounos ('00) helped christen the campus on Saturday night in Hollywood at a party in the 107,000 square foot space. Along with a program from Ithaca College, Emerson interns have been staples at film »

Apparently craving a generous studio audience more than a good script, Lindsay Lohan has landed a guest role on CBS' "2 Broke Girls." CBS announced on Wednesday (March 5) that Lohan will be appearing on the Monday, April 14 episode of Monday 8:30 comedy. After playing herself on "Glee" and "Anger Management," as well as in "Scary Movie 5," Lohan at least theoretically has a character to play on "2 Broke Girls." CBS says that Lohan will be playing Claire Guinness, "a soon-to-be-bride who asks Max and Caroline to make her wedding cake." As Max and Caroline are about to discover, Claire is really indecisive. One thing Lohan can guarantee is that she'll be greeted with prolonged applause when she first appears on-screen. The "2 Broke Girls" audience has been giving Jennifer Coolidge the Fonz treatment for over a year, roaring at her every initial appearance as if Sophie Kachinsky's arrival offers hope of humor. »

February is traditionally the greyest, dampest month and therefore an opportune time to unleash Prisoners (Entertainment One, 15) into Britain's living rooms: Denis Villeneuve's rain-pelted, Pennsylvania-set thriller is so ostentatiously gloomy as to make the dregs of winter positively sparkle by comparison. That's a compliment of sorts. Solemn, cement-thick atmosphere – Roger Deakins's cinematography has been deservedly Oscar-nominated – elevates the absurdities in this lengthy, engrossing bit of pulp, which follows a suburban kidnapping case through to some very bitter ends.
Hugh Jackman (on unusually steely form) is the rampaging father scorned, Jake Gyllenhaal reprises his Zodiac performance to slightly lesser effect as the dogged detective, Melissa Leo plays the patented Melissa Leo role as the mangy shut-in who may or may not know more than she's letting on.

Today marks the release of the first still from Disney’s latest feature Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day – a whole 10 months before its October 2014 release date.
Starring Steve Carell (Anchorman), Jennifer Garner (Dallas Buyers Club), Bella Thorne (Big Love), Megan Mullally (Will & Grace), Dylan Minnette (Prisoners), Ed Oxenbould (Puberty Blues), Kerris Dorsey (Moneyball) and Jennifer Coolidge (American Pie), the film has been adapted from Judith Viorst’s classic kids book of the same name. Newcomer Oxenbould features as our title character Alexander, a young boy who believes he’s having the worst day ever, all starting with a piece of chewing gum getting stuck in his hair…
The still doesn’t give a lot away apart from showing us that everyone (bar the green-faced baby) is great at pulling a perfect scream mask face.
