Best Stories of the Wek

We’ve reached the end of a very busy week. There were tons of trailers and some pretty big news stories, so this is a pretty beefy edition of the Best Stories of the Week.

Recapping the news from the past seven days, you’ll find updates on the future of Marvel Studios‘ television side and Samuel L. Jackson in the cinematic universe, some rumors about the future of Star Wars and details on the past of a certain iconic character from the saga, a first look at The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, new writers for the Transformers franchise and future universe and more.

Plus, there’s trailers for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Steven Spielberg’s Bride of Spies, Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur, and a double dose of Jake Gyllenhaal in Southpaw and Everest, and that’s not even half of the (mostly) great, new trailers we saw this week. Catch up on the Best Stories of the Week after the jump! Read More »
