roland emmerich stonewall

Roland Emmerich tends to be associated with big, explosive blockbusters, and he’s currently plotting a return to his biggest, most explosive blockbuster of all with two Independence Day sequels. Before he does that, however, he’s going to take a detour into something completely different.

The director’s next feature will be Stonewall, a relatively small drama about the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City. And he’s just found his lead — Jeremy Irvine, star of War Horse and Great Expectations. More details on the project after the jump.

Jon Stewart Noah

Even before it opened, Noah was raising the ire of moviegoers who felt that Darren Aronofsky‘s take on the classic Bible story wasn’t “literal” enough. The controversy hasn’t died down now that the movie’s actually hit theaters, and last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart took a moment to fire back.

With his trademark wit, the host skewered those who complained that Noah wasn’t a documentary and didn’t have enough God in it. But best of all is when he takes on the Fox commentator who remembered the original as a story in which “the sun comes out and everybody lives happily ever after.” “Everybody?” Stewart responds with mock shock. “Nobody lives!” Watch him rip the haters a new one after the jump.

Matt Damon Martian

The past few months have been kind to Drew Goddard, as he’s been selected to direct Sony’s Sinister Six and run Netflix’s Daredevil series. But all of these new projects mean he doesn’t have room anymore for some of his old ones, and so he’s had to drop Fox’s The Martian from his plans.

Nevertheless, the project is forging ahead without him and might even be closing in on a big bright star. Matt Damon is reportedly circling the sci-fi pic, which is based on the e-book by Andy Weir. More details after the jump.

Flash Boys movie

Michael Lewis isn’t a Hollywood guy per se, but he has been behind a couple of big recent hits. Best Picture nominees The Blind Side and Moneyball were both based on books of his, and movies based on his tomes Liar’s Poker and The Big Short are both in the works.

Now Sony and producer Scott Rudin are getting close to picking up his latest bestseller, Flash Boys. The tome centers around a group of Wall Street guys who, dismayed to realize how rigged the stock market is, band together to reform their industry. Think of it as the anti-Wolf of Wall Street. More details after the jump.

Intramural

The Saturday Night Live stars are the last people you’d expect to see in an inspirational sports drama, but they’re the perfect folks to send up the inspirational sports drama subgenre. Kate McKinnon, Jay Pharoah, and Beck Bennett all make appearances in the first Intramural trailer, which, as the title suggests, takes on the world of intramural college sports.

The video plays like a sort of indie Dodgeball, down to a shot of a cranky, violent dude in a wheelchair barking orders at his scrappy team. Watch the new Intramural trailer after the jump.

Holly Hunter Batman vs Superman

So far, most of the Batman vs. Superman actors announced are playing very familiar roles. We’ve got Henry Cavill as Superman, of course, plus Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and Jeremy Irons as Alfred. But last week, a trio of names were added with no indications about which characters they’d be playing.

Today, we finally might have some dirt on one of them. According to a new rumor, Holly Hunter will be a woman who has a history with Batman in the comics. Hit the jump for more details.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 international trailer

As Spidey prepares to swing back into theaters, two more trailers have dropped for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. One, the new international trailer, seems to contain a few new bits and pieces. But for my money, the more charming one is the one with no footage from the film, new or otherwise, at all. It’s the sweded trailer, and it’s short and sweet.

Watch both trailers, and check out a new poster, after the jump.
