Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for the animated comedy The Lego Movie, which sees directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord (Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street) linking up with Chris McKay (Robot Chicken) to direct the likes of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the 2002 NBA All-Stars. Talk about a cast of characters! Check out the first trailer after the official synopsis....
"The Lego Movie follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average Lego minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. Emmet (Chris Pratt) is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which he is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared."

How long should a franchise lie fallow before it can be rebooted successfully? With its premier comic-book property, Warner Bros allowed an eight-year gap between Batman and Robin and Batman Begins, although it's worth remembering that grosses for the Christopher Nolan trilogy only reached spectacular levels with The Dark Knight, three years later; the sequel made £49.1m, as opposed to just £16.6m for Batman Begins. Sony did pretty well with The Amazing Spider-Man only five years after Spider-Man 3, whereas Universal didn't create much excitement with Louis Leterrier's The Incredible Hulk, five years after Ang Lee's less-than-fully achieved Hulk.
Seven years after Superman Returns underwhelmed audiences with a total of £16.4m in the UK and Ireland, the pricey Man of Steel always looked likely to improve on that total. With Nolan on board as producer, »

Warner Bros. Pictures has released the trailer for “The Lego Movie.”
The film, the first-ever full length theatrical Lego movie, follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average Lego minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world.

Oscar® winner Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”) and Elizabeth Banks (“The Hunger Games,” Emmy nominee for “30 Rock”), will star as two of Emmet’s fellow travelers: Vitruvius, an old mystic; and tough-as-nails Lucy, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest. She also calls upon the mysterious Batman, a Lego® minifigure voiced by Will Arnett (Emmy nominee, “30 Rock”), with whom she shares a history.

2015 is beginning to fill up with major franchises as sources confirm to Variety that “Jurassic Park 4″ is moving to 2015.
No exact date has been set yet but the next installment was originally slated to bow next June but had to push because the schedule was too tight and work was still being done on the script. Universal would not comment but at a recent licensing trade show in Las Vegas, a poster was on display for the movie which included a 2015 release.

The Hunger Games director Gary Ross and Hanna director Joe Wright have flirted with Houdini, a film based on the popular book The Secret Life of Houdini: The Making of America's First Superhero, but neither came through to finalize a deal. Now Deadline reports a new director has stepped up to the plate with Galaxy Quest and Red 2 director Dean Parisot now in talks to take over the project which Summit Entertainment has been developing for years. Rather that simply focusing on Harry Houdini, the legendary master illusionist, and his career as a magician, the film dives into the secret life of the renaissance man. The premise revolves around Harry Houdini, the world-renowned escape artist, and his involvement with helping the Secret Service, local police organizations, and even whispers of him being a British spy. An early draft of the script, described as Indiana Jones meets Sherlock Holmes, was »

We're about halfway through a year that has seen no seismic shift in business from previous ones. Earlier in 2013 it was clear the year was lacking and had no "The Hunger Games" or "The Avengers" to prop up overall stats. As we've eased into summer, however, the numbers have strengthened, and audiences have feasted on a number of hits thus far, with more to come as the weather gets warmer. As expected, several of these movies are relying more and more on overseas help to weather middling domestic showings. 3D plays a big factor, but a number of smaller, mid-range projects are also finding relief internationally, which is likely due to expanding theater counts in other countries. As mediocre as some early-year numbers have been, the studios have been releasing less and less product, to the point where there are less outright flops. The number of distributors has increased, however, »

Though Jurassic Park IV was initially targeted for a very rushed release in 2014, Universal wisely decided not to rush production and recently announced that the production had been postponed in order to give director Colin Trevorrow enough time to adequately prep the shoot. The franchise entry is a massive undertaking regardless, but it also marks Safety Not Guaranteed director Trevorrow’s first studio film and early word is that his rewrite of the script involves some pretty impressive (and time consuming) set pieces that need careful attention. Following the postponement news, most assumed that we would likely see Jurassic Park IV hit theaters in 2015 instead. A new banner for the film at the 2013 Licensing Expo suggests that the film will indeed hit theaters sometime in 2015, and we have also learned that the pic will be shot in 3D. Hit the jump for more. [Update: Variety has confirmed that Jurassic Park IV will indeed be released in 2015, adding that Steven Spielberg is currently in town working with producers and Trevorrow on the JP4 script before he jumps into pre-production on American Sniper.] The folks over at ComingSoon have provided »

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are doing just fine, thank you very much. The engaged duo stepped out Monday in L.A. for a low-key movie date night at ArcLight Cinemas, looking very much relaxed and comfortable together—the outing marked the first time the couple had been spotted together in public in months. Miley, who was wearing her engagement ring, stayed close to Liam's side, holding on to his arm as they made their way past the paparazzi. The affection, of course, wasn't one-sided! The Hunger Games hunk gallantly led the way for his fiancée. At one point, he placed a kind, protective hand on her lower back to guide her in the right direction. These photographs are the first taken of the »
Is it just us, or is The View starting to look more like The Hunger Games these days? On the heels of Joy Behar and Barbara Walters announcing their departures from the long-running ABC talk show, it sounds like Elisabeth Hasselbeck might also be flying the coop! During a June 17 appearance on The Wendy Williams Show, Sherri Shepherd hinted that only she and Whoopi Goldberg would be returning to the show next season — but is that really what she meant?
Ever the super-sleuth, Wendy came back with a hard-hitting question: “If the two black women are left, then you’ve just confirmed Hasselbeck is out? »

Man of Steel weekend box office: Above estimates, but real June record remains beyond the reach of Superman 2013 reboot (image: Henry Cavill as Superman in Man of Steel) Somewhat surprisingly — it’s usually the other way around — Warner Bros.’ Man of Steel grossed more than $3 million above studio estimates released on Sunday, June 16, 2013. Directed by Zack Snyder (300, Sucker Punch), and starring Henry Cavill (The Tudors, possibly the upcoming The Man from U.N.C.L.E.), the 2013 Superman reboot scored $116.61 million from 4,207 North American locations according to weekend box-office actuals found at Box Office Mojo. Once Thursday evening figures are added, the $225 million-budgeted Man of Steel‘s domestic cume reached $128.68 million by Sunday evening. Now, Man of Steel‘s adjusted $116.61 million doesn’t change the June Box-Office Record Chart in any way. The Superman reboot remains ahead of the former official June champ, the Tom Hanks-, Tim Allen-voiced Toy Story 3‘s »

Reality TV is always going to be a guilty pleasure. When award season comes around we will always declare our love for Mad Men but how many of us pretend we aren’t actually interested in the Kardashians?
Here are some reality shows that we might feel less guilty about watching. Some you may have heard of but some may passed you buy as you watch Gordon Ramsey yell at overweight New Yorkers. Not all reality is pure trash.

Man Of Steel is on pace to be one of the year’s highest grossing films after a record-breaking opening weekend in which the film raked in over $125 million, breaking the record previously held by Toy Story 3.
The film is also the fourth biggest non-sequel opening in history, behind only The Hunger Games, Alice in Wonderland, and Spider-Man. 2013′s best opening weekend is still held by Iron Man 3, which brought in $175.3 million.
An outstanding weekend comes as no surprise considering Superman’s reboot was one of the most anticipated films of 2013, but even the most optimistic Warner Bros. executives probably didn’t predict numbers quite this big.
The biggest positive to the opening weekend figures for fans is now Warner has fast-tracked a Man Of Steel sequel and it may be coming to theaters as early as 2014. While that may seem like the project is being rushed, there »

Man of Steel weekend box office: June record (not really) broken by Superman 2013 reboot (photo: Newsman Laurence Fishburne and journalist Amy Adams are appalled by General Zod’s Man of Steel box-office hype) Extra! Extra! Man of Steel Breaks June Box-Office Record! That’s what most publications the world over have been heralding today. Man of Steel, of course, is the latest Superman reboot — directed by Zack Snyder (300, Sucker Punch), and starring Henry Cavill (The Tudors, Immortals) as Clark Kent aka Superman. The June box office referred to is the domestic one, as in the United States and Canada. As for the word "record" … Well, it apparently means all sorts of different things to all sorts of different hype-makers and to those who blindly embrace the hype and help to spread it. According to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo, this June 14-16 weekend, Man of Steel took in »

Man of Steel was one of the most-anticipated movie events of the year, and from a box office perspective it did not disappoint.Through Sunday, Man of Steel earned a fantastic $128.6 million*$116.6 million during the traditional Friday-to-Sunday period, and another $12 million from Thursday night group sales. That's the second-best opening of 2013 so far behind Iron Man 3, and it's a new record for highest opening ever in June ahead of Toy Story 3 ($110.3 million). The official three-day figure of $116.6 million ranks second all-time among non-sequels behind The Hunger Games. Man of Steel also performed well compared to 2006's Superman Returns. That movie opened on a Wednesday and earned $84.6 million through its first five days. Adjusting for ticket price inflation, that would come out to $102.5 million, or noticeably lower than Man of Steel's $128.6 million haul so far.In need of a major franchise to fill the void left by Harry Potter and The Dark Knight, »
