The end of an era? We can only hope not. After all, Hayao Miyazaki has attempted retirement before, but then again, there is something about The Wind Rises that feels very definite and complete. The supposed final film of one of cinema’s true greats is not just a riveting biography of plane designer Jiro Hirokoshi, but also a look inside the soul of Miyazaki himself.
Miyazaki has always had a love for planes, ever since being born into a family that ran Miyazaki Airplanes. His films often contain flying apparati such as planes and airships, from Castle In The Sky to Porco Rosso. Now he delves back into the life of Hirokoshi, »

A superhero gig can be a star-making role, as Chris Pratt found out this year when Guardians of the Galaxy rocketed him onto the Hollywood A-list. But while it’s hard to imagine anyone else playing Star-Lord after Pratt had his way with the part, it’s worth remembering that he only nabbed the role after Marvel auditioned nearly every other superhero wannabe in town. Five other actors filmed screen tests for Star-Lord long before Pratt was in the mix: Jim Sturgess, Eddie Redmayne, Joel Edgerton, Jack Huston, and Lee Pace, the latter of whom would be retained to play the Guardians villain Ronan. But when none of those five men had the right stuff and last-minute flirtations with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and John Krasinski failed to pan out, too, Marvel execs had to think outside the box ... which is where they found Pratt, the perfect pick.Pratt’s casting is »

"He's peanut butter and jealous!" Following last weekend's debut of the much better red band trailer for Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg's comedy The Interview, a more tame green band trailer for appropriate audiences has arrived. It's mostly the same trailer, but cuts out the extended profane bits. However, there is some solid new footage of James Franco showing his dimwitted side as talk show personality Dave Skylark as his producer (Rogen) just wants to do real news instead of celebrity gossip bullshit. Blink and you'll miss Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing with some puppies on the faux show "Skylark Tonight." Watch! Here's the new green band trailer for Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg's The Interview from Sony: If you missed the raunchy red band trailer for The Interview, you can watch it right here.

Oliver Stone, eager to be on the pulse of current events even if he doesn't know how the pulse is beating, is set to write and direct a movie based on Nsa leaker Edward Snowden. The film will be based on the book Time of the Octopus, which was written by Snowden's lawyer, Anatoly Kucherena, and "is considered the closest thing to a documented account of the events since Snowden first released the documents." Americans were shocked at the news that their communications were being "monitored" (even though the news was widely misconstrued), and then went back to putting their every thought on Facebook and Twitter. According to Variety, Stone has offered the role of Snowden to Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and while the actor has agreed to do it, negotiations have yet to begin. If the deal is made, production would likely begin at the end of this year or early »
