Heavyweight star pairing to reunite for motor sports movie about competition between American and European racing teams
• Blog: Happy 50th Brad Pitt!
Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt are set to reunite for the first time since 1994's Interview with the Vampire in the car-race drama Go Like Hell, adapted from Aj Baimes' book about the 1960s rivalry between car makers Ford and Ferrari, which would appear to have been fast-tracked after the success of Ron Howard's formula one drama Rush.
Cruise is due to play American car designer Carroll Shelby in a film to be directed by Joseph Kosinski, who recently worked with Cruise on the sci-fi thriller Oblivion. It is not known who Pitt will play, but he was attached to star in the project in an earlier incarnation, according to the Hollywood Reporter, when director Michael Mann was on board. »

Update: I like to include the dates of when movies First get announced they are getting made so we can all keep track of just how long it can take. In this case, I'm friends wtih the Schwatz family and so I know from their accounts how painfully long it takes for things to get going...but now, Gilligan's Island the movie is finally getting going! Josh Gad, he who made Olaf the most lovable snowman ever, will star and co-write the script. It would Seem that he would play Gilligan, right, even though Gilligan's lanky body was part of the joke and Gad isn't "lanky." Small details! If Tom Cruise can play Jack Reacher, a character known to be a 6'6" blonde, and Daniel Craig can play James Bond, who Ian Fleming wrote as having a dark face with a 3-inch scar running down his cheek, well then, Gilligan can be a little chubby! »

American Dad aired its Christmas episode “Minstrel Krampus” on Sunday after postponing the episode for a year due to the Newtown shootings.
Minstrel Krampus Was Cancelled Due To Sandy Hook Shootings
After the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. In December of 2012, Fox pulled Family Guy and American Dad Christmas episodes, which both supposedly featured somewhat violent content, out of respect for the grieving families. This is not the first time the satirical, controversial animated series has been pulled from scheduling due to current events, and it most likely will not be the last. In April 2011, new, hurricane-themed episodes of Family Guy and American Dad were cancelled after tornadoes caused destruction in the South earlier that month.
The American Dad episode in question, “Minstrel Krampus,” was postponed until 2013, and aired Sunday, Dec. 15.

In what’s becoming one of the most anticipated movies of 2014, watch the teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, starring Matthew McConaughy, Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway and Michael Caine.
Filled with footage of Chuck Yeager’s Bell X-1, the Mercury and Gemini space capsule missions, the Saturn V rocket liftoff to the Moon with the Apollo missions, and the Space Shuttle Atlantis, this superb first trailer really brings home the fact that at one time America’s Space Program was envied and unrivaled. It’s chilling to think that we may never again see the likes of when we made frequent trips to the Moon. There was a time when we had the determination, ability and huge national pride of travelling to our nearest celestial neighbor.
Matthew McConaughey speaks the truth in his voice over – “We lost all that. Perhaps we’ve just forgotten. That we are still Pioneers »

Last week was chock-full of superhero movie news, though the most shocking story was the death of Fast and Furious star Paul Walker, all of which we covered in our first-ever WhatCulture news brief. This week has been a bit more of a mixed bag, complete with the usual amalgam of sequel announcements, casting news, and trailer releases that got fans and writers talking, ranting, and debating all week long.
We finally have our first glimpses at House of Cards season 2 and Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla reboot, have news about Tom Cruise’s future with Jack Reacher, have new faces for iconic characters like Naked Gun’s Frank Drebin and Terminator’s Sarah Connor, and received word about a few villains that will be headlining their own comic book films (and giving Spider-Man a run for his money). All of this and more in this week’s breakdown of the 10 biggest TV and movie news stories! »

Also this Episode, witness Dan Fraser taking on this week’s box office pundown, Joseph Upton bamboozling his co-hosts with silver-screen Santas in Hollywood ho-ho-who? And Dave Bennett cramming a whole host of obscure movies into Wham’s Last Christmas.

Remember when movie sequels were rare, trilogies were reserved for a holy few, and franchises that extended on to five, six, or even seven movies were strictly the domain of slumming series like Police Academy or Nightmare on Elm Street? Cling to your memories, because your kids will find those stories awfully quaint in twenty years, when you’re taking them to the multiplex to decide between Iron Man 15 and the fourth series reboot of Spider-Man. These days, you’re nothing if you don’t have a megafranchise running in perpetuity, as evidenced by this week’s bonanza of sequel news: Paramount is moving ahead with sequels to World War Z and Jack Reacher, the new Terminator film has begun casting, Disney has acquired rights to future Indiana Jones movies, and Universal is working on a radical rewrite of the seventh Fast and Furious movie. But which studios have the »

The story unfolds in a near future in which a hive-like alien race, called Mimics, have hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, shredding great cities to rubble and leaving millions of human casualties in their wake. No army in the world can match the speed, brutality or seeming prescience of the weaponized Mimic fighters or their telepathic commanders. But now the world’s armies have joined forces for a last stand offensive against the alien horde, »

Tom Cruise heads back to the future in the sci-fi thriller Edge of Tomorrow, which gets its first official theatrical preview today. The film costars Emily Blunt (Into the Woods) and Bill Paxton (2 Guns) as human soldiers in a not-too-distant futuristic war against invading aliens. The twist on this familiar genre scenario? Cruise’s protagonist is killed in battle, then gets caught in a time loop that allows him to re-experience his final day as a breathing person, over and over – gaining in skill as he does so.
Edge of Tomorrow is based on Hiroshi Sakurazaka’s light novel All You Need Is Kill and was co-adapted for the big screen by the likes of big-shot screenwriters Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) and Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), though its premise sounds more like an amalgamation of Hollywood sci-fi titles; ...
