As is our habit, we've freeze framed the titles at random and just shared whichever image came up.

'The Aviator' movie with Leonardo DiCaprio as bizarre billionaire Howard Hughes: Bloated biopic. 'The Aviator' movie review: What's not good for the Spruce Goose… Imagine Citizen Kane directed by the Steven Spielberg of The Color Purple, Schindler's List, Amistad, and Saving Private Ryan. The final result would look something like a Barry Levinson film – for instance, the superficial and phony Bugsy. Or, an even more appropriate example, the superficial, phony, and bloated The Aviator. Except, of course, that Levinson is not the man responsible for the 2004 mega-production starring Leonardo DiCaprio as the eccentric, billionaire ladies' man Howard Hughes. Strangely enough, that man is Martin Scorsese, the director of hard-hitting films such as Taxi Driver, Goodfellas, and Gangs of New York. Scorsese, a fan of Old Hollywood, apparently wanted to have some fun with the reported $110 million budget (approx. $138 million in 2016) made available to him. The director no doubt had a ball while making The Aviator, »

Look who’s (maybe?) been defrosted.
Carla Gugino will return to Fox’s Wayward Pines for Season 2, TVLine has confirmed.
Fans of the Fox drama will recall that Gugino’s character, former federal agent Kate, was cryogenically frozen by the First Generation brats during the season-ending three-year time jump.
On Wednesday, the actress posted a photo of herself on the series’ Vancouver set.
Fresh off the heels of the news that Jason Patric would be joining Wayward Pines season 2, Fox announced yesterday that Academy Award nominee Djimon Hounsou (Amistad, Blood Diamond) will be joining the cast as well. Season 2 of Wayward Pines will premiere this summer on Fox.
Press Release: Two-time Academy Award nominee Djimon Hounsou (“Blood Diamond,” “In America”) has been cast as a series regular in Wayward Pines, the hit psychological thriller event series returning for a second season this summer on Fox. Hounsou will portray Cj Mitchum, an original resident of Wayward Pines and a historian for the town with extensive knowledge of its complex origins, and the one person who can provide a unique bridge between the current world of Wayward Pines and the previous world that humans inhabited. Hounsou joins Jason Patric, who was previously announced in a starring role on Season Two of Wayward Pines.

Mark Rylance’s best supporting actor nomination for Bridge of Spies marks the 13th time a performance in a Steven Spielberg movie has been nominated for an Oscar. Which of course calls for a list, so without any further ado here's Murtada's ranking.
Oscar Nominated Performances in Spielberg Films Ranked
Did Hopkins have a big righteous courtroom speech? Must be, because why else was this performance nominated. The only thing I remember about it is that Hopkins robbed Rupert Everett of his nomination for My Best Friend’s Wedding.
Twelve more after the jump...
