The Hangover Part III Set Photos with the Wolf Pack!

15 September 2012 12:54 PM, PDT

The Hangover Part III is in full swing, shooting across Los Angeles and Las Vegas as we speak. A couple of set photos have trickled in, which show Phil gaining a few pounds to be more like Alan (Zach Galifianakis) in a reversal of the relationship we've seen between the two wolf pack members in the past two installments. Alan has his gloriously full head of hair back, Stu (Ed Helms) has lost the face tattoo, and the wives (Jamie Chung; Gillian Vigman) are happy and joining in on the fun (for the moment). This final sequel promises to be less like the second film (which was a straight up remake of the first), and more of a stand-alone comedy that ditches some of the more obvious story beats while retaining the humor of the original. Check out the cast as they wrap up this enduring comedy series.

15 September 2012 11:11 AM, PDT

The infamously British Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy comes to its inevitable conclusion with The World's End, which finds actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reuniting on-screen once again for director Edgar Wright. Their previous ventures together include Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and the TV series Spaced. Now, the trio will attempt to complete an epic pub crawl, which finds a group of childhood friends reuniting to finally make it to the renowned watering hole known as The World's End. Halfway through their quest; they realize that something sinister is lurking about, bound and determined to destroy planet earth! We have your first look at the set, which finds Simon Pegg and Nick Frost watching on as Edgar Wright directs the first pub-crawl from (flash)back in the day. The names of the young actors have not been revealed, but the chubby teen is playing a younger Nick Frost, »

RoboCop First Look Set Photos of Joel Kinnaman in His Cyborg Suit!

15 September 2012 10:38 AM, PDT

That ol' whippersnapper Ed Douglas has landed two set photos from director Jos&#233 Padilha's RoboCop, a remake of the seminal 1987 sci-fi classic originally directed by Paul Verhoeven. These first two images offer us a pretty good view of Joel Kinnaman in his cyborg suit. The actor plays Officer Murphy, a cop who is left for dead after a bust gone bad, only to be brought back to life through the use of advanced robotics. The original suit worn by Peter Weller has become an iconic and instantly recognizable part of pop culture. This new black suit (one of a reported four different suits that will be used throughout the film), with its lifting face visor, on the other hand, looks like a background actor's costume from the recent Total Recall remake. Fans of the original movie will surely call blasphemy. Not sure what those new to this franchise will think. »

Studios are always on the lookout for literary properties they believe will become the next franchise, along the lines of The Twilight Saga and The Hunger Games. New Line Cinema has thrown their hat into the young adult adaptation ring, acquiring the rights to Maggie Stiefvater's novel The Raven Boys.

The novel is the first in a four-book series known as the "Raven Cycle," which centers on a 16-year-old girl named Blue Sargent.

Although the girl has steered clear of the opposite sex, she meets teenage brothers The Raven Boys at the pizza parlor where she works, which leads into a contentious love triangle.

Man of Steel Reinvents Lois Lane Says Amy Adams

14 September 2012 4:02 PM, PDT

The 2012 summer movie season is in the history books, so naturally, we can now start looking ahead to the 2013 blockbuster lineup. Man of Steel looks to be one of the highlights of the season, starring Henry Cavill as the title character and Amy Adams as Lois Lane. The actress recently spoke about the intimidation factor in playing a character so memorably portrayed by Margot Kidder in Superman.

"It was fun. It was intimidating because it was played before by Margot Kidder, whom I love. One of my favorite movies growing up was Superman -- and Superman II. I was kind of a nerd. I loved them so much. It was important to create a character that was new because I thought she was perfect. It's hard to step into a role where you thought someone had already achieved what could be achieved. But coming from theater, you're always stepping into »
