Underworld 5 is lining up some Lycans. Outlander and Game of Thrones actor Tobias Menzies has been set for a major role as Marius, a mysterious Lycan leader. He joins Theo James and franchise lead Kate Beckinsale. Anna Foerster, who worked with Menzies in episodes of Outlander last season, is directing Underworld 5. The film opens October 21, 2016.

Newcomers include ChloĆ« Grace Moretz, Kiersey Clemons, and Beanie Feldstein. Neighbors 2 opens May 20, 2016. Nicholas Stoller returns to direct. [TheWrap]

Tom Cruise‘s return as Jack Reacher isn’t too far off. Paramount has reportedly finalized plans to shoot the sequel in November, for release in late 2016. Ed Zwick is directing and Cobie Smulders is in talks to play the female lead. The new film will be based on Lee Child‘s novel Never Go Back. [THR]

Sure, you’ve already seen Jurassic World. (Or so I assume, based on those insane box office numbers.) But have you seen it in IMAX 3D? If not, now’s your chance to have giant dinos fly at your face. The Colin Trevorrow-directed sequel is returning to IMAX 3D theaters for one week only starting August 28. [Coming Soon]

It’s been nearly 15 years since My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, but you’d hardly know it looking at these new images. The Portokalos family doesn’t seem to have changed at all. The sequel sees Toula (Nia Vardalos) and Ian (John Corbett) dealing with “angst and anger” from their teenage daughter, while also struggling with a “lull” in their marriage.

Good thing she’s got her family to help out — including Aunt Voula (Andrea Martin), here seen giving Toula some unwanted sex advice. Also joining the cast this time around is John Stamos in a “pivotal cameo.” My Big Fat Greek Wedding opens March 25, 2016. [USA Today]
