Over the past month or so we've heard plenty of speculation surrounding casting on the upcoming Terminator reboot from director Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World), and it seems that Paramount Pictures has now identified the front runners to step into the shoes of Sarah Connor, with Deadline reporting that the studio is "looking closely" at Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Brie Larsen (Short Term 12) for the role.
Both Clarke and Larsen have previously been mentioned as candidates for Sarah Connor, while Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black) and Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) have also been said to be under consideration. Meanwhile Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) is said to be Taylor's pick for John Connor, the leader of the Resistance, and Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy), Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Taylor Kitsch (John Carter) have been mentioned with regards to Kyle Reese. »

One of the big question marks about the film has been who Jones would cast, and now the studio has announced the first round of official casting news.
Jones is directing from a script first penned by Charles Leavitt (Blood Diamond), with the director himself doing a rewrite after coming on board to helm the blockbuster, following Sam Raimi’s exit last year.

"Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke and "21 Jump Street" actress Brie Larson are said to be the two names left that are vying for the lead role of a young Sarah Connor in the upcoming "Terminator" reboot at Annapurna Pictures.
Alan Taylor ("Thor: The Dark World") is onboard to direct the project, and Paramount and Taylor are reportedly aiming to cast the Sarah Connor role before locking down the John Connor and Kyle Reese roles.
Clarke is said to currently be the front runner, and has had experience working with Taylor on HBO's "Game of Thrones". At last report Tom Hardy was being eyed to play human resistance leader John Connor.
Both casting possibilities have a nice simpatico - Clarke's Thrones co-star Lena Headey played Sarah Connor in the "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" TV series, while Hardy's "The Dark Knight Rises" co-star Christian Bale played John Connor in "Terminator Salvation »

After five years and three movies of playing arguably the definitive screen version of Batman -- with a pit stop or two along the way for weightier fare, like his Oscar-winning turn in "The Fighter" -- Christian Bale returns this month to the kind of physically and emotionally intense roles he was making a career of before he donned the cape and cowl and helped relaunch that legendary franchise.
First up is "Out of the Furnace," the second effort from director Scott Cooper ("Crazy Heart"). Bale plays Russell Baze, a native of the steel town of Braddock, Pennsylvania, who steadfastly holds onto his job at the factory and his honorable desire to lead the kind of small-town, working-man life that has become increasingly rare in modern, corporatized America. When Russell runs afoul of the law -- he's not perfect, after all -- and his restless, war-traumatized brother Rodney (Casey Affleck »

Batman and Superman better make some room on the bigscreen. Under the guidance of "The Dark Knight Rises" and "Man of Steel" writer David S. Goyer, Warner Bros. and DC Comics are reportedly developing such lesser-known DC properties as "Suicide Squad," "Booster Gold," "Deathstroke," "Team 7," and others as lower-budget features. The move would allow DC and Warners to expand the "Man Of Steel" universe without breaking the bank. The goal seems to be for DC to build up a cinematic world similar to Marvel's, with 2015's "Man of Steel" sequel (unofficially known as "Batman vs. Superman") as its centerpiece and jumping-off point. »

Along with balancing fan service with keeping things accessible for newbies and making sure the trailer editors don’t put all your spectacle in the teaser, it seems like a crucial part of crafting a summer blockbuster is making sure there’s plenty of trivia hidden away for fans of all description to comb over.
In recent years, with CGI allowing an infinite amount of easter eggs, the amount of easter eggs has grown at a meteoric rate. After writing each entry in the ongoing series 10 Things You Might Have Missed, what’s been notable is how there’s always a multitude of leftover factoids, prompting two questions; is it getting too much and which film from the past year has the most?
The answer to the first is simple; of course not. Joss Whedon may have recently come out bashing in-universe references for pulling you out of the action, »

Female villains in the movies can usually be placed into two categories; the mentally deranged psychopath and the provocative seductress. This isn’t always the case of course, but it’s a fairly accurate basis to draw on. In honour of the nasty and glamorous sorceress Mizuki in 47 Ronin – the samurai epic out this December starring Keanu Reeves – we’ve reminisced on our favourite on-screen feminine scoundrels in cinema history. Mizuki has a tendency to turn into a dragon and go on rants about corpses and rivers of blood. In this list she joins the conniving, the insane, the alluring and the devilishly sexy. They’re all here, and we just love to hate them.
Mizuki – 47 Ronin (2013 Dir. Carl Rinsch)
Best Line: “Mountains of corpses will not stand in our way”
Morally dubious on the largest possible scale, this shape-shifting witch in upcoming action-fantasy epic 47 Ronin has the ability to »
We know that Robert Rodriguez is bringing one of his previous films to the small screen, with a TV adaptation of From Dusk Till Dawn currently filming, and now it's being reported by The New York Times (via ComicBookMovie) that The Weinstein Company is looking to branch out into the TV business and could be planning a Sin City series to follow the theatrical release of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For next year.
Apparently, Sin City is one of several movies that Bob Weinstein is looking to adapt for TV, with Rodriguez is said to be involved alongside with comic book creator and co-director Frank Miller. Meanwhile, in addition to the previously announced Scream pilot for MTV, Weinstein is also said to be working with director Frank Darabont on a 10-part series based upon Darabont's 2007 feature adaptation of the Stephen King tale The Mist.

It was feast or famine at this year’s Thanksgiving box office, as The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Frozen eclipsed all other offerings. Both films did better business than forecast and each surpassed long-standing records for the holiday frame. Homefront and Black Nativity saw the flipside of Thanksgiving’s bounty, but overall grosses were still high enough to make this the biggest Thanksgiving box office of all time. Title Weekend Holiday Total 1. Catching Fire $74,500,000 $110.1 $296.5 2. Frozen $66,713,000 $93 $93 3. Thor: The Dark World $11,108,000 $15.49 $186.7 4.

This is where we start a war. We'll lose friends, and cause controversy. Because somewhere on this list below is something you're dying to see. In fact, you might be fanatical about some of these inclusions (Christopher Nolan fans, we're staring straight at you). But it's inevitable. And unavoidable. Hollywood is releasing hundreds of movies in 2014. Some of them will be good. Some of them will be bad. And some will be box office disasters. In compiling this list, we're not declaring that all, or even any, of these movies will be unwatchable. Some will be quite good. Maybe even a masterpiece or a classic in the making. There are a few that we're desperate to see ourselves. We really want them to succeed. But every movie here is a risk taker. And some of this shit? Hollywood should clearly know better. These are the 14 Biggest Potential Bombs of 2014.
As previously reported, both The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Frozen are headed to record-breaking Thanksgiving weekends at the box office. But Black Friday numbers suggest that both films may be even bigger than originally thought — and both could pull in more than $100 million over the five-day frame!
Catching Fire topped the chart on Friday with a sizzling $31.3 million, which sent it right past the $250 million mark on its eighth day of release. The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises are the only two films to ever reach $250 million faster. Catching Fire is currently on pace for a Friday-to-Sunday weekend in the $75-80 million range, »

One of the most frequent superhero related topics recently has been the casting for Edgar Wright’s (Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’S End) next film which will be based on Marvel Comics’ Ant-man. The film will be the first of Marvel Studios’ ‘Phase III’ line of films after ‘Phase I’ began with 2008′s Iron Man and culminated with last years Avengers, and of course ‘Phase II’ began earlier this year with the record breaking Iron Man 3.
Recent rumours have pointed to both Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises, Looper) and Paul Rudd (Dinner For Schmucks, Anchorman) being in contention for the role. However it’s starting to look as if my personal favourite for the role, Rudd, may be the current front runner for Henry Pym/Ant-Man in the upcoming Marvel Production set to shoot in Atlanta. Edgar Wright has weighed in on the rumours »

Here's something to be thankful for this week if you're a Christopher Nolan fan. According to our friends at The Film Stage, the first trailer for Nolan's next film will drop alongside The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug when it hits theaters on December 13. And this ain't just a short teaser for Nolan's Interstellar either -- it's a full-on trailer that runs one minute and 43 seconds long. Due in theaters on November 7, 2014, the sci-fi blockbuster will follow Inception in being the second film to come from Nolan since the director catapulted to superstardom status following the launch of his Batman trilogy, which concluded with The Dark Knight Rises last year. We don't know a ton about Interstellar, aside from the fact that it follows a group...
