To follow up their live-action debut 21 Jump Street, filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller are heading back into the world of animation with Warner Bros.’ 3D tentpole Lego: The Piece of Resistance. And they’re luring some very funny stars to go along with them.
Parks & Rec star Chris Pratt landed the lead role in June, with Will Arnett and possibly Channing Tatum up for the roles of Lego Batman and Lego Superman, respectively. Now Elizabeth Banks and Morgan Freeman have signed on to lend their voices to the animated 3D tentpole as well. More details after the jump.

The Dark Knight Rises is so packed full of story, character and action it’s hard to imagine anything hit the cutting room floor. But obviously, some things did, and the first remnants are beginning to leak out. Above is an image from a deleted scene between Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman) and Miranda Tate (Marion Cotillard) discussing Tate’s intentions at Wayne Enterprises. The scene was cut from the final film but was (obviously) shot, and after the jump you can read the script page detailing not only what they’re saying, but when in the film it happens. Read More »
For the next two weeks, avoiding spoilers for The Dark Knight Rises might be as easy as tiptoeing through a minefield. Press screenings have begun, which means fan screenings will soon start, too, and all the secrets to Christopher Nolan‘s highly anticipated conclusion of his Batman trilogy will be out in the wild. Thankfully, this brand new 13-minute featurette has very little in the way of new spoilers.
The video takes us through the obvious story arc following The Dark Knight, as it talks about cast, characters and gives a great behind the scenes look at several of the big action scenes that have been revealed to date. We see the plane, the football field, Wall Street, and more. Acting as sort of a catch-all to the previously released images, posters, trailers and commercials, this featurette is an absolute perfect way to increase your excitement for the film without ruining too much of the story. Check it out below. Read More »
If we posted every single TV commercial for a superhero movie coming out in the next few weeks, every single story on this page would be exactly the same. But once in a while a spot pops up that isn’t just the same 20 recycled shots, it’s chock full of new footage. That’s the case with this new spot for The Dark Knight Rises.
The finale of Christopher Nolan‘s Batman trilogy opens July 20 and stars Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anne Hathaway, Morgan Freeman and others. If you want to see some more of its goodies, check it out below. And yes, Mr. Wayne, it does come in black. Read More »

John Sturges‘ 1960 Western The Magnificent Seven featured an iconic cast that included Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, James Coburn, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter, Horst Buchholz, and Eli Wallach, so it’s only appropriate that the new remake brewing at MGM seems to be collecting some top-level talent as well.
The project’s off to a good start on that front already with Tom Cruise attached to star, and if this new report is to be believed, Cruise is about to get some other high-profile company in the form of Matt Damon, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Costner. However, considering the notoriously unreliable source, that’s a very big fat if. More after the jump.

Just when you though they were out, they pull you back in. For the past several years both Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale have more or less said that The Dark Knight Rises was their final Batman film and that it completed a trilogy. Done. End of story.
Or is it? In the new Empire, which has a lot of great stuff in it, Bale has very carefully worded a statement that says he’d be open to the challenge of a fourth movie if Christopher Nolan came to him with the right story. We all know that’s a big, big “if.”
After the jump, read that quote and check out a brand new TV spot for The Dark Knight Rises, which features a heavy dose of Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman) and the reveal of The Bat.

While youth tends to rule in Hollywood, the next pack of legendary onscreen partiers looks to be neither the rowdy teens of the Project X films nor the thirtysomethings of The Hangover franchise, but the senior citizens of Last Vegas. Morgan Freeman has just joined Robert De Niro and Michael Douglas in the “Grumpy Old Men meets The Hangover” comedy, directed by Jon Turteltaub (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice) from a script by Dan Fogelman (Crazy, Stupid, Love.). More details after the jump.
