Is there a movie star more universally beloved right now than Dwayne Johnson? The guy is so powerfully charismatic, he’s been dubbed “franchise Viagra.” He can rock the hell out of a Taylor Swift anthem and make a gritty Bambi reboot seem like a good idea. He’s such a likable figure, in fact, that even Steven Spielberg can’t resist sending him fan mail.

Johnson revealed that he recently got an admiring letter from the iconic director, which he said made him “grin like a big ass kid.” Read the Dwayne Johnson Steven Spielberg letter, and see Johnson’s reaction to it, after the jump.  Read More »

Ghostbusters

Yesterday brought us our first look at the uniforms from Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters movie, which include combat boots and baggy coveralls. But any Ghostbuster worth their salt knows you’re not fully suited up without a proton pack. So today Feig shared a photo of his version of the spirit-trapping device.

Ant-Man Paul Rudd

We’re used to Marvel men going big: they armor up, Hulk out, get super soldier-ized. So what happens when one goes really, really small? In a new clip from Ant-Man, Marvel’s newest superhero finds out. Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) takes the Ant-Man suit for a test run in his bathtub, with potentially disastrous results. Watch the Ant-Man clip after the jump. Read More »

Sandman

There have been several attempts to adapt Neil Gaiman‘s The Sandman over the years, sometimes as a TV series and sometimes as a film. In some ways, the former seems the easier way to go. The original Sandman series consisted of 75 issues, and even the more standalone arcs worked better as part of a cohesive whole.

But current producer Joseph Gordon-Levitt is making Sandman as a movie, and now he explains why. Naturally, that means a few things are going to get lost in the translation. Gordon-Levitt admits he might piss off the “literalists,” but pledges to stay true to the “overall sentiment” of the books.

Secret in Their Eyes (5)

You could argue that Juan José Campanella‘s 2009 Argentinian thriller Secret in Their Eyes didn’t really need an English-language remake, and you’d probably be right. But as far as unnecessary remakes go, this one actually looks pretty promising.

Directed by Billy Ray (Shattered Glass), the new Secret in Their Eyes stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Nicole Kidman, and Julia Roberts as three FBI colleagues whose lives were torn apart by a brutal murder. Many years later, Ray (Ejiofor) gets a lead that could finally resolve the case, only to uncover something even more destructive. See the Secret in Their Eyes trailer and images after the jump.

Star Trek Cast

The USS Enterprise will boldly go… exactly where we all thought it would. At least when it comes to the title. Director Justin Lin has confirmed the longstanding rumor that Star Trek 3 will be titled Star Trek Beyond, and shared the first (not terribly revealing) official photo from the set to boot.

Terminator Genisys

It’s a given that the time-hopping plot of Terminator Genisys will involve some twists and turns. But we were surprised and disappointed to see the marketing so eagerly reveal what should’ve been a massive spoiler for the story. Turns out, director Alan Taylor was none too pleased about that choice either.

In a new interview, Taylor admits he fought against the big reveal, even if he kind of understands why the studio did it. Read the Terminator Genisys spoiler comments after the jump.  Read More »
