Director Christopher McQuarrie and star Tom Cruise are already shooting Mission: Impossible 5, but the film has yet to finalize the cast for its antagonist. At the moment, Paramount and Skydance are offering the bad guy role to Sean Harris, known for Prometheus, The Borgias, and other films such as the Red Riding series. We don’t know much about the new film, much less the Mission: Impossible 5 villain, but the details we have are below. Read More »

It’s not hard to imagine why Ridley Scott would want to make Exodus: Gods and Kings. It’s an epic tale for the ages, with plenty of opportunities to show off dazzling visuals and stunning performances. But if you want to hear Scott explain his attraction to the material in his own words, a new featurette has you covered.
The new video takes a peek behind the scenes of Exodus: Gods and Kings, highlighting the impressive scale of the project. Everything about this project looks massive — the sets, the cast, the scope of the story, even the racial controversy it has attracted. Check out the Exodus Gods and Kings behind the scenes featurette after the jump.

In December, Fox will release a found-footage horror film that looks basically like “Alien in a pyramid,” with a ravenous mummy standing in for the xenomorph. The film comes from producer Alexandre Aja (High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes) and director Gregory Levasseur (who wrote those two films of Aja’s), and follows a group of archaeologists as the venture into a newly-discovered pyramid. While just a bit peeks out over the surface of the ground, the three-sided structure appears to be massive. The team soon discovers just how big it is — as they also find that it may have been constructed to keep something within its monolithic stone walls. Ashley Hinshaw, James Buckley, Denis O’Hare, Christa-Marie Nicola and Amir K. star; watch The Pyramid trailer below. Read More »
After showing a talent for making people laugh during his gigs as Thor, and in The Cabin in the Woods, Chris Hemsworth is taking a dive into full-on comedy. He’s in talks to play a new role in the sequel and semi-reboot of Vacation. John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Horrible Bosses, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2) wrote the film and will make their directorial debut on the picture, which follows the continued adventures of the Griswold family as they try desperately to have fun.

The first look at Paul Rudd in Ant-Man didn’t show us much, and this image of Evangeline Lilly suggests a lot more than it actually reveals.
Lilly plays Hope Van Dyne in the film — that’s the daughter of Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Janet Van Dyne (above). We know that Janet isn’t in the film much, if at all. (But she may not actually be dead, counter to many assumptions.) That has led to assumption that Evangeline Lilly will take the superhero role normally associated with Janet: the Wasp. Images posted by the actress show that she’s got part of the character’s look down pat, at the very least. Read More »
With the movie Open Windows, Timecrimes writer/director Nacho Vigalondo goes deep into experimenting with form as Elijah Wood continues his very entertaining run of genre films. The film features Wood as the super-fan of an actress played by Sasha Grey. The guy gets a window into the life of his favorite person, only to find that a crazy person is toying with both of them. Nearly the whole film is seen through computer screens, which sounds like it could be a slog. But this new Open Windows trailer is cut at a rapid clip. It shows how Vigalondo is playing with the very concept of telling a story in such a limited manner. Read More »
