The war is over! But who won? "Captain America: Civil War" finished main unit filming right around the same time as the "X-Men: Apocalypse" cast, which makes sense since both movies are coming out in May 2016. Check out some of the wrap photos below, including the captain himself, Chris Evans. But first -- let's hear from Jeremy Renner on which side Hawkeye will be on in the Iron Man vs. Captain America face-off.
Jeremy was at Wizard World Comic Con Chicago and may have been tricked into confirming he's Team Cap. An audience member asked how he felt about siding with the First Avenger. "I don't know; they wrote me in that side. It made sense to me." But then he joked, "Maybe I switched sides!" Not a huge shock, but it sounds like confirmation that Hawkeye is standing with Captain America. Are you ready for spoilers on the rest of the team breakdowns? »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...
Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.
Without further ado...
23 Jump Street
Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »
Kellan Lutz has gone from playing a brawny bloodsucker in “Twilight” to torturing contestants on Fox’s new reality competition, “Bullseye.” But while he pulled off some impressive aerial stunts, the actor who played Emmett Cullen in the vampire trilogy revealed on Tuesday that he didn’t come away unscathed. “Check out what I did for my first #Bullseye stunt & Boom! (At the :05 mark) got smacked in the head! But a few staples later, I was all good!” he posted on Instagram, along with a clip of his accident. Lutz was hooked up to a high-tech pulley system that flung him into air. »

Kellan Lutz is one amiable fellow. As one of eight children, he knows how to get along. Lutz is chatty and loves to play extreme sports, so hosting Fox’s Bullseye, beginning May 27, is a natural fit. It’s the sort of show that appeals to those who find bungee jumping ho-hum and who don’t mind signing endless insurance forms. Lutz, who played Emmett Cullen in the Twilight movies, Chris MacNess on The Comeback and George Evans on 90210, is making his debut as a host. To be fair, he has hosted charity events but not a TV show, and this … Continue reading →

They may be best known today for their later roles, but these six stars all got their first break by playing super heroes on TV. Maybe these shows aren’t the most memorable or well-made super hero projects, and they aren’t the highlight of the actor’s career, but these little shows jump-started the careers of some future celebrities.

Our look at underappreciated films of the 80s continues, as we head back to 1988...
Either in terms of ticket sales or critical acclaim, 1988 was dominated by the likes of Rain Man, Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Coming To America. It was the year Bruce Willis made the jump from TV to action star with Die Hard, and became a star in the process.
It was the year Leslie Nielsen made his own jump from the small to silver screen with Police Squad spin-off The Naked Gun, which sparked a hugely popular franchise of its own. Elsewhere, the eccentric Tim Burton scored one of the biggest hits of the year with Beetlejuice, the success of which would result in the birth of Batman a year later. And then there was Tom Cruise, who managed to make a drama about a student-turned-barman into a $170m hit, back when $170m was still an »
