Doubling down on the preposterocity inherent in turning a game about blocks falling onto other blocks into a feature-length motion picture, here's some more game-to-film adaptation news: The Angry Birds movie has a voice cast. And is still a thing that is happening.Arriving via carrier pigeon email, the press release announcing the names involved (and the characters they're playing) is a thing of joy, so here are a few select excerpts to tantalise and enthrall.

Sibling rivalry is taken to new heights in this trailer for Ridley Scott's "Exodus: Gods and Kings." Ramses (Joel Edgerton) and Moses (Christian Bale) were raised together, but once Moses gets the hot tip that he's actually supposed to lead the Israelites out of slavery, well, these bros come to blows.
This trailer gives us a taste of just how large and in charge Scott's vision is for this Old Testament tale. We get a peek at Moses's big moment on Mount Sinai, as well as at least nine of the 10 plagues of Egypt represented here. Catch 'em all!
"Exodus: Gods and Kings" comes out on December 12, 2014, just in time to watch with your family this holiday season!

Rosa Salazar ("Insurgent," "American Horror Story") has closed a deal to join the cast of the young adult novel adaptation "Maze Runner: Scorch Trials" for 20th Century Fox, Temple Hill Entertainment and the Gotham Group.
The first film followed a group of young men, and one woman (Kaya Scoledario), escaping their confinement within a giant deadly maze. In the second film, they're now in a sun scorched wasteland.

There’s nothing new under the moon in “Dracula Untold,” a decorous but dull origin story that attempts to turn history’s most famous vampire into a kind of male Maleficent — a misunderstood husband/father/ruler who turned to the dark side out of the noblest intentions. What next? “Freddy Krueger Meets Dr. Freud?” Lavishly mounted by first-time feature director Gary Shore, minus the cheeky good humor that propelled his 2006 creature-feature short “The Draft,” this Legendary-Universal co-production (which opens today overseas, 10 days ahead of its domestic bow) looks to scare up only modest Halloween-season biz amid competition from Warners’ “Annabelle” (out Oct. 3) and U’s own “Ouija” (out Oct. 24).
Like Bram Stoker before them, screenwriters Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless (the forthcoming “Gods of Egypt”) take their inspiration from the real historical figure of Vlad Dracula (aka Vlad the Impaler), a 15th-century Transylvanian prince, taken hostage as a teenager »

You might know Jake McDorman as Evan Chambers from Greek and Analeigh Tipton as the babysitter from Crazy, Stupid, Love - yes, the one who broke out on America's Next Top Model - but they're going to try to win your hearts in ABC's new comedy, Manhattan Love Story. The show premieres this week, and if you haven't seen the show's trailer yet, it's a typical boy-meets-girl tale, but there's a twist: you can hear their thoughts. So as they're spouting pleasantries on screen, you know they're secretly judging each other, super hard. Bonus: the stars are dating in real life, too! I caught up with the stars over the Summer and chatted about their concerns for the new series, as well as the shows they can't live without. Popsugar: The thoughts-as-voice-overs format of the show is really new for primetime; is that something that attracted you to the script? »
The actress will play Brenda, who meets Dylan O'Brien's Thomas while they're both using tunnels under the city to flee from their pursuers, after Thomas and his group have escaped from The Glade. In The Maze Runner, there was only one female in Thomas' group, Teresa (Kaya Scodelario), and in the follow-up, Brenda is the only girl in her clan. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Thomas, "will find himself in a potential love triangle," when Brenda comes into the picture.
We reported last week that Game of Thrones star Aidan Gillen has signed on the play the villainous Janson, the highest-ranking member of the evil organization Wicked after Chancellor Ava Paige (Patricia Clarkson).
Project Name: #hotmessmoves Asking For: $30,000 on Indiegogo Amount Raised Thus Far (At Time Of Post): $6,390 Days Remaining In Campaign (At Time Of Post): 30 Description: #hotmessmoves is a web series about a pair of women who are described by their own creators as "totally relatable...in the worst way." Thanks to their unending selfishness and self-centered attitudes, the characters played by Ashley Skidmore and Lyle Friedman manage to ruin everything from Game of Thrones to foreplay to pooping. Each #hotmessmoves episode is marked by its own titular hashtag, and while none of the installments last very long, they are not short on laughs. The series' channel, aided by guest appearances from Hannah Hart and Grace Helbig, has managed to rack up more than 1.5 million views in its first year. With their Indiegogo campaign, Skidmore and Friedman hope to fund a third round of sketches to add to their channel. »

While HBO execs aren't tied to the ratings like regular commercial channels, they have to air programs that will keep viewers subscribed. Which of their shows will be cancelled or renewed? We'll have to wait and see.
Scripted HBO shows listed: Boardwalk Empire, Eastbound & Down, Game of Thrones, Girls, Hello Ladies, Jonah from Tonga, The Leftovers, Looking, The Newsroom, Silicon Valley, True Blood, True Detective, and Veep.
Last update: Most recent ratings for Boardwalk Empire added.
There's lots of data that HBO execs look at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV series. The ratings for initial airings don't play as large a role as they do on commercial stations but they are still an indication of how popular a show is. Here's an updated listing of HBO's recent/current primetime scripted shows. »
Pirates have swarmed all over “Gotham,” the Batman prequel series that debuted on Fox last week, giving it the dubious distinction of far exceeding file-sharing activity of any other new fall TV show.
From Sept. 17 to Sept. 29, the pilot episode of “Gotham” was downloaded via torrent networks worldwide 1.33 million times, with 600,000 of those coming a day after its season premiere last Monday, according to data provided by piracy-tracking firm Excipio.
That was more than five times any of this season’s other freshman U.S. TV series. Of the six top-rated fall premieres from last week, ABC’s “How to Get Away with Murder” clocked in with 259,432 downloads over the same period, per Excipio’s analysis. That was followed by CBS’s “Madam Secretary” (195,528), CBS’s “Scorpion” (168,091), NBC’s “The Mysteries of Laura” (100,792) and ABC’s “Black-ish” (45,476).
The popularity of “Gotham” among pirates spanned the globe, with the U.S. »

While there was never any real reason to seriously doubt that he would do so, it’s now been made official that Dominic Cooper will return as Howard Stark in Marvel’s upcoming Agent Carter TV series. Cooper first played the Stark family patriarch in Captain America: The First Avenger and had a cameo role in last year’s Agent Carter One-Shot short film.
Marvel announced the news early Tuesday morning, but did not include any indication of how large Cooper’s role will be. My guess is that he’ll be a recurring character on the series, thanks to his involvement in the early days of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the inclusion of “secret missions” that the titular Agent Carter (Hayley Atwell) will be tasked by Stark to accomplish.
Tell us, are you excited to see Dominic Cooper don the mustache of Howard Stark once more? Let us know in the comments below. »

The Cast Inside the Strain is back to talk about the penultimate episode of The Strain‘s freshman season. In this week’s discussion, immortality seems to be the topic at hand, as Eldritch Palmer finally achieves his undying dream of escaping death.
Last night’s episode also finally brought Setrakian’s flashbacks full circle, as we witness the story behind his beloved’s heart in a jar. Even though the sequence has been widely theorized about, Dustin and I couldn’t come to an agreement on how well it was all executed.
Meanwhile, back in the shop, Eph and the rest of the team finally send out a distress message to the rest of the world before Eichhorst storms the castle and sends our heroes back on the run. Oh, and did I mention that the vampire ninja assassins returned for a blink and you miss it (Wtf!) moment? »
