Fox’s Murder on the Orient Express remake has a long way to go if it hopes to catch up to the star power of Sidney Lumet’s 1974 version, which featured Albert Finney, Lauren Bacall, Ingrid Bergman, Jacqueline Bisset, Sean Connery, Anthony Perkins, and Vanessa Redgrave. But getting Angelina Jolie on board is probably a good place to start. The actress has reportedly entered early talks to join Kenneth Branagh, who will both star in and direct the mystery.

Kung Fu Panda 3 is only two months away from release and you know what that means – a whole new collection of “Pandas are fat!” jokes. Which is perfectly fine, if fat pandas doing fat panda things is your idea of great comedy. There are definitely some of you out there since they’ve made three of these things.
As we’ve seen in the previous trailers, the third film in DreamWorks Animation’s series will find Jack Black‘s unlikely (because he’s a fat panda) kung fu master reuniting with his long-lost fat panda father, returning to his ancestral fat panda home, and training his fat panda brethren how to kung fu so they can stop an evil villain who is surely going to underestimate an army of fat pandas. A new clip from the film has arrived online and it contains no shortage of fat panda jokes. Hey, if the formula isn’t broken…
Watch the new Kung Fu Panda 3 clip after the jump.

By the Sea is bombing at the box-office. Angelina Jolie‘s third directorial effort wasn’t as expensive to make as Unbroken, but it’s still a considerable loss of around $40 million for Universal. After its financial failure, it sounds like the studio wants to bring the actress and director back to more audience-friendly fare.

By the Sea is very much an art film. Angelina Jolie Pitt‘s romance wears its European influences on its sleeve, but some American titles come to mind while watching the writer/director’s third film: What About Bob? and the work of Mike Nichols (Carnal Knowledge, Closer). The former title may appear odd, but By the Sea is about characters trying “get away from it all” in paradise. Unlike Bob, these characters can’t take a vacation from their problems. Their bags — full of cigarettes, a typewriter, and impeccable clothing — aren’t the only baggage these tired lovers bring with them on their getaway.

If seeing Jack Black bring a rather peculiar version of R.L. Stine to life in Goosebumps last month wasn’t your cup of tea, maybe you’ll be more pleased with his return to animation in Kung Fu Panda 3, arriving early next year.
A new Kung Fu Panda 3 trailer has just arrived, giving us more of Po (Black) being reunited with his estranged father (Bryan Cranston). As teased at the end of Kung Fu Panda 2, there’s a whole panda village waiting to meet Po, but the reunion isn’t all bamboo and laughs when a new evil threatens to obliterate them. Read More »
Director Angelina Jolie‘s sophomore effort, Unbroken, was a notable hit. Maybe not at the Oscars or with most critics, but it performed well at the box office. Now she’s following up that audience-friendly biopic with a movie a little more experimental and less conventional. Watch the new By the Sea trailer after the jump.

Normally voice casting for animated movies is done far in advance, mostly because sometimes the performance from each actor voicing the characters informs how the animators will bring the character to life. And because voice recording is done in advance, it’s a rarity to hear of someone being replaced with just under five months before the film’s release.
But that’s exactly what’s happening with Kung Fu Panda 3. Previously, Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson was slated to voice a character named Mei Mei, a ribbon-dancing panda who is romantically obsessed with Po. However, Almost Famous star Kate Hudson has now been hired to replace her on the film. Read More »
