Warcraft may have had its release date pushed back to 2016 to avoid going up against Disney's Star Wars: Episode VII, but the video game adaptation looks to be picking up the pace in terms of casting, with Universal revealing that Ben Foster (Lone Survivor), Rob Kazinsky (True Blood) and Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans) have signed on for as-yet-unrevealed roles, while Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger) is in final negotiations.
The four actors join the previously announced Travis Fimmel (Vikings) and Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol) in the cast of Warcraft, which is being directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code). Other actors who have been linked to parts in the fantasy epic include Colin Farrell (Total Recall), Anton Yelchin (Star Trek Into Darkness), Paul Dano (Prisoners) and Anson Mount (Straw Dogs).
Warcraft is set for release on March 11th 2016. »

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" director Bryan Singer has revealed that the title of the next "X-Men" movie will be "X-Men: Apocalypse" and will hit theaters on May 27th, 2016. The character Apocalypse is the world's first mutant. He was born in Egypt around 3,000 BC and used advanced technology to make himself an eternal conqueror, believing in survival of the fittest. His most popular storyline, "The Age of Apocalypse," ran in the "X-Men" books beginning in 1995. Set in a parallel reality, "The Age of Apocalypse" saw Professor Charles Xavier murdered before he could form the X-Men. Instead, a very different take on the team began with Magneto leading them through a post-apocalyptic America ruled by mutants. Meanwhile, 20th Century Fox hired Simon Kinberg to help expand both the "X-Men" and the "Fantastic Four" properties. "I have a lot of ideas on how to built those brands and do what everybody is »
Few working actors today have extracted such a variety of rich performances in a short period of time as Benedict Cumberbatch. In 2013 alone, he played Julian Assange to critical acclaim, filmed the third season of Sherlock for the BBC and took on one of the most famous villains in science-fiction cinema: Khan. However, the articulate Star Trek Into Darkness actor recently revealed a displeasure for director J.J. Abrams, particularly in the filmmaker’s decision to keep the identity of his then-cryptic role in the Star Trek sequel a secret.
Abrams commented earlier in the week that it may have been a mistake not to reveal that Khan was in the film, as the director and other cast and crew members denied routinely than the famous villain was a character in Star Trek Into Darkness. Cumberbatch portrayed Khan in the guise of a ruthless character named John Harrison before revealing his »

Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures have confirmed the casting line-up for Duncan Jones' upcoming movie take on the Warcraft videogame. And as it turns out, some of the rumours that were doing the rounds had just a little substance to them.
The film is now set to star Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel (from the Vikings TV show), Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol), Rob Kazinskey (Pacific Rim) and Toby Kebbell (The Counsellor). Furthermore, discussions are nearly done with Dominic Cooper - soon to be seen again in Captain America: The Winter Soldier - as well.
The film has recently been pushed back to a March 11th 2016 release date - you can blame Star Wars: Episode VII for that - but Jones (who has »
Duncan Jones' Warcraft may be delayed to 2016 thanks to J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII taking over the December 2015 spotlight, but that doesn't mean that the movie is doing anything to slow down pre-production. Over the last few months we've heard a few actor names swirling around the video game adaptation and today, according to The Hollywood Reporter, a few more have signed on. The trade's sources tell them that Ben Foster, Toby Kebbell and Robert Kazinsky have all penned deals to star in Warcraft while Dominic Cooper is currently in final stages of negotiations. The group of actors join a cast that already includes Paula Patton, who got some action cred starring in Brad Bird's Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, and Travis Fimmel, who has become a rising star in Hollywood thanks to his role on series Vikings. Colin Farrell has also been in talks to »
From the moment that Benicio del Toro (Sin City) and Edgar Ramirez (Elite Squad) were linked to the role of the villain in Star Trek Into Darkness, the fact that Chris Pine's Kirk would find himself up against his nemesis Khan Noonien Singh in the sequel to the 2009 reboot was perhaps the worst kept secret in Hollywood history. Sure, the casting of Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) as 'John Harrison', the continuous denials from the cast and crew, and Karl Urban namedropping Gary Mitchell might have had us questioning ourselves, but let's face it, was there a Star Trek fan out there who didn't think "I knew it!" when Cumberbatch dropped his "My name is Khan!" line?
Well, in an interview with MTV, director J.J. Abrams has admitted that he regrets the decision to keep Khan's identity a secret in the run up to the film's release: "The truth is, I »

Katee Sackhoff is often a name that pops up when casting a kick-ass female character based on her breakout role as Starbuck in Battlestar Galactica. She has since appeared in a similar role opposite Vin Diesel in this year's Riddick. She has also been linked to potential parts in the all female Expendables movie, Star Wars: Episode VII, and roles as either Ms. Marvel or Wonder Woman. With Gal Gadot getting the Wonder Woman role in Batman Vs Superman, that still leaves the other projects on »

Last month it was announced that Fast & Furious director Justin Lin was to team up with Jeremy Renner for the fifth instalment in the Bourne franchise - and the second to feature Renner's super spy Aaron Cross after last year's The Bourne Legacy - and now Universal has revealed that the sequel is set to land on August 14th, 2015.
The as-yet-untitled Bourne follow-up becomes the latest addition to 2015's ever-expanding slate of sequels, which includes... deep breath...

Michael B. Jordan seems to be the talk of the town these days. After a stunning breakout performance in Fruitvale Station earlier this year, the relative newcomer is all of the sudden being linked to some of Hollywood’s most high-profile projects. Star Wars: Episode VII, ID Forever Part I and Fantastic Four are just three of the many films that the young actor is rumored to be circling. Despite the fact that we have no official studio confirmation on any of the roles that the actor is said to be up for, there’s no denying that Michael B. Jordan is a star on the rise and that everyone wants a piece of him.
Recently, while promoting the upcoming Blu-Ray/DVD release of Fruitvale Station (which hits store shelves on January 14th), we had the chance to sit down with Jordan and director Ryan Coogler for an exclusive chat to discuss the film. »

Lucasfilm has launched the official Star Wars Instagram account, which in the coming months and years ahead leading up to the premiere of Star Wars: Episode VII in 2015, will be used to share photos from deep inside the production. From props, to wardrobe, to the SFX team, to the actors on set, Star Wars Instagram promises to deliver front door service. But first, since pre-production is still starting up and director J.J. Abrams is just now finding his sea legs in bringing the next thrilling chapter in this sci-fi saga to the big screen, we get Darth Vader sharing his first ever Selfie as he storms Tantive IV in search of stolen Death Star plans. Other photos so far include a behind-the-scenes shot from Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back with Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker and David Prowse as Darth Vader during their epic light saber battle. »
May the best filter be with you.
Stars Wars joined Instagram on Monday. Darth Vader posted the first honorary selfie with the caption: “Another day at the office. #StarWars #DarthVader #selfies #gpom.”
Either Darth Vader’s got some photogenic genes (or knows the most flattering filter for his helmet) or Disney is trying to drum up some early buzz for Star Wars: Episode VII, which isn’t arriving until Dec. 18, 2015.

While we have more than two years before the highly-anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII hits theaters, fans have less than one year to wait until the animated series Star Wars Rebels debuts. Following the propaganda poster from last month, LucasFilm has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette, which introduces us to executive producer Greg Weisman and shows new footage from the series. Watch as he explains that the story is set closer to Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, centering on how the Rebel Alliance was first formed.
From a galaxy far, far away, Darth Vader is catching on to modern social media. The founding father of force-chokes posted a selfie on Star Wars' new Instagram account. The inaugural photo shows Vader mugging (masking?) for his smartphone camera, surrounded by hints of smoky chaos. Star Wars: Episode VII won’t be in theaters for another two years, but it seems the franchise's top players are back at work. Vader’s filtered pic came with the caption "Another day at the office." Based on his hashtags - #StarsWars, #DarthVader, #selfies - Vader seems destined for Instagram greatness. Our »

Turns out that Darth Vader is just as narcissistic as the rest of social media users guilty of the occasional (or daily) selfies. The iconic villain kicked off the launch of the official “Star Wars” Instagram account with the photo (above) which read, “Another day at the office. #StarWars #DarthVader#selfies #gpom.” Also read: R2-D2 Coming Back for J.J.

"Turbo" may have fizzled at the box-office, but DreamWorks Animation is pressing on with the TV series "Turbo Fast". The first five episodes will be released on Netflix on December 24th and marks the streaming service's first original series for kids.
Further episodes will premiere throughout the year. The news is a deviation from Netflix's traditional approach of making an entire season's worth of episodes available at once. [Source: The Live Feed]

I always thought trying to keep the villain Khan a secret in Star Trek Into Darkness was kind of ridiculous. I applaud J.J. Abrams' effort in keeping it hidden, but his audience is smarter than he thinks, and they saw right through it. In a recent interview with MTV, the director admits that he regrets keeping Benedict Cumberbatch's role a secret saying,
"The truth is I think it probably would have been smarter just to say upfront 'This is who it is.' It was only trying to preserve the fun of it, and it might have given more time to acclimate and accept that's what the thing was."
Abrams goes on to reveal that the idea to keep Khan a secret came from the studio. He explains,
"The truth is because it was so important to the studio that we not angle this thing for existing fans. »

Jeremy Renner is set to return for the next Bourne movie, in the summer of 2015...
The once-crowded blockbuster summer of 2015 is looking a little less packed than it once was. Independence Day 2, Star Wars: Episode VII and Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 are amongst the films that have vacated it so far. And whilst Ant-Man has moved in, there's still likely to be some jiggling to do before the finally line-up for summer 2015 at the movies is confirmed.
And you can add the follow-up to The Bourne Legacy to the list, too. Universal has confirmed that Bourne 5 is going to be released on August 14th 2015, and that Justin Lin - the man behind lots of Fast & Furious movies - is set to direct.
Do Hollywood studio executives know something that the rest of us don’t? Did they take George Lucas and Steven Spielberg’s comments from earlier this year – where the duo predicted imminent major changes to the structure of the blockbuster industry – as a a challenge?
You’d be forgiven for suspecting as much, given how many genre movies (action, sci-fi, superhero, horror and so on) and/or franchise sequels have been recently announced for a 2015 release date, including Insidious: Chapter 3, Mission: Impossible 5 and the 13th Friday the 13th movie. Additionally, Star Wars: Episode VII was confirmed for a December 2015 debut a while back, rather than the originally-planned Summer launch pad (where movies like Avengers: ...
