The Tribeca Film Festival began as a way for New York to rebuild culturally after the World Trade Center attacks in 2001. For the first time since then, the area around Ground Zero is dominated by a sparkly, newly finished Freedom Tower, which represents so much more than the city’s resilience and recovery. The Tribeca festival played a small, but not insignificant, role in that recovery, inviting artists and film lovers to the city and reassuring New Yorkers that life can be beautiful even in the darkest of days.
After more than a decade of growth, Tribeca is also entering »

Variety reported that Toby Kebbell (Dead Man's Shoes, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, Warcraft) was Fox's top choice to play Victor von Doom in Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot, and now the man himself has confirmed that he's accepted. Thank you for all the support, I'm glad to be working with a wonderful cast.@Miles_Teller, @_KateMara, @1jamiebell. @Marvel #FantasticFour — Toby Kebbell (@ItsTobyKebbell) April 2, 2014 Kebbell's obviously left Michael B. Jordan's name off the list there, but we'll assume he merely forgot and the Fruitvale Station star is still playing Johnny Storm in the movie! Anyway, the principal cast have come together finally and shooting is set to commence next month. So what do you think of the new big screen incarnation of Marvel's first family? »

The MTV Movie Awards are coming your way on Sunday. The nominations this year, particularly for Movie of the Year, were interesting. I don't know that the wins will be, though, because frankly it seems like another young adult adaptation is poised to dominate after we got a bit of a breather from that sort of thing last year. I have no idea what I'm doing here. Yeah, the public votes, but I imagine there's plenty of rigging going on, too. So against reason, I'll try to predict them anyway. Don't use them for your office pool or anything (if you happen to work in an office so chill as to have an MTV Movie Awards pool, that is). Just try to follow my logic below and feel free to tell me why I'm wrong in the comments section.

With Chronicle director Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four gearing up to go into production, Deadline is reporting that 20th Century Fox will take the first step in merging its Marvel properties with the upcoming reboot, with the site revealing that X-Men veteran Hugh Jackman will appear in a brief cameo role in the film as the adamantium clawed Logan.
According to the report, Jackman - who will next be seen as Wolverine in May's X-Men: Days of Future Past - has signed a new three film deal with Fox, which also includes 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse and the recently announced sequel to The Wolverine, which is set to hit in 2017.

Deadline.com is reporting that the powers that be at Twentieth Century Fox have reached out to a yet-to-be-produced writer, Jack Stanley, to pen Chronicle 2 after turning down the original screenwriter's (Max Landis) script for being too dark. While there aren not any writing credits to Stanley’s name, he did write a script titled Sweetheart which made the 2013 Black List of un-produced screenplays. Seeing how the original Chronicle cost 12 million to produce yet made 126 million dollars in box office receipts, it makes total sense that Fox would want to go back to that well and see if it can produce any more box office magic for the studio. But seeing how two of the three leads died in the original movie, Joshua Trank won’t be returning, and the original screenwriter has been replaced, this sequel has an air of “cash grab" to it. The original Chronicle is an »
