Arnold Schwarzenegger could use a hit right about now, not that he’s at a loss for the ability to crush things. Based on the new Sabotage red-band trailer, however, this could be that hit. The David Ayer-directed thriller looks tough and exciting, with plenty of badass moments and stone-cold violence to go around.
The plot, loosely inspired by the Agatha Christie mystery And Then There Were None, follows a team of DEA agents who start to get picked off one by one after they bust a drug cartel safe house and make off with the cash. Watch the newest promo after the jump.

A new rumor is circulating that could explain the number of superheroes potentially showing up in Batman vs. Superman. We know for sure Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman will be in the Zack Snyder sequel, set for release July 17, 2015. We’ve also heard wild rumors of other superheroes, such as Green Lantern, Flash and Aquaman, possibly popping up in the film. Whether those rumors are true or not, the addition of Wonder Woman alone has fans worried Snyder’s film will bite off more than it can chew.
Well the new rumor is Batman vs. Superman will end on a huge tease for a Justice League movie, which will shoot immediately after. Read about that, and a few other rumors, below. Read More »
During the summer movies tend towards sun, superheroes and sequels. There are romantic comedies with huge stars, and animated 3D films generating lines that run around the block. That doesn’t leave a lot of room for the little guy. But maybe something else can sneak in. Paranoia, directed by Robert Luketic, is an espionage thriller that doesn’t boast any big special effects, just an impressive cast with an intriguing plot.
Liam Hemsworth stars as a man hired by one tycoon (Gary Oldman) to spy on his competitor, played by Harrison Ford. Amber Heard, Josh Holloway, and Richard Dreyfuss are caught up in the scheme, too. The film opens August 16. Check out the first trailer below. Read More »
Eagle-eyed /Film readers likely noticed there were no Superhero Bits today. Blame a last minute, awesome interview oppurtunity. But we couldn’t leave for the weekend without some kind of superhero update and both Marvel Studios and Marvel’s enemy Latino Review were happy to oblige.
On the official side of things, Marvel and Disney released the first official plot synopsis for Thor: The Dark World, which focuses heavily on the Phase Two/post-Avengers nature of the story. On the rumored side of things, Latino Review reports that a few members of the Guardians of the Galaxy will be featured more than others and are having their backstories interweaved into the Marvel Cinematic Universe continuity.
Across the cosmos with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, rumors say Mary Elizabeth Winstead is now at the top of the list for a young female actress and that Game of Thrones‘ Nikolaj Coster Waldau, Lost‘s Josh Holloway and Kevin Durand are all up for additional roles.

Hailee Steinfeld, Dave Franco, and Deborah Ann Woll have been offered the leads in Rosaline, a retelling of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet that’s told from the perspective of the girl Romeo ditches to be with Juliet. Michael Sucsy is directing from a script by by (500) Days of Summer writers Scott Neustader and Michael H. Weber, which in turn is an adaptation of Rebecca Serle‘s forthcoming debut novel When You Were Mine. The comedy will use modern-day dialogue in a 16th-century Verona setting.
Woll would play the title character, while Franco and Steinfeld could play Romeo and Juliet, respectively. If Steinfeld signs on it’ll be her second time playing the iconic character, as she’s also lined up to play Juliet for Carlo Carlei’s more straightforward adaptation. Much as I like Steinfeld, her casting here strikes me as a bit off since she’s eleven years younger than Woll and Franco — but maybe that’s part of the story? [Showblitz]
After the jump, Anne Hathaway becomes a producer, and Sawyer from Lost explores the world of competitive international breakdancing. Really.

Back in 2009, the Polish Brothers, Mark and Michael, released two films on the festival circuit: The Smell of Success premiered at Sundance, while Stay Cool opened at Tribeca. Now, two years later, both films are finally getting released in theaters. The Smell of Success just got a very limited opening this month, and Stay Cool will be hitting theaters September 16. A new trailer’s just been released for the latter, and… well, I can see why no one was in a hurry to rush this out.
Stay Cool follows a successful writer named Henry McCarthy (Mark Polish) who returns to his high school as a commencement speaker at the request of Principal Marshall (Chevy Chase). Once Henry arrives, Marshall encourages him to “connect” with the graduating class, which apparently means sitting in on classes and passing notes with students. (I don’t know about you, but I have never had a commencement speaker that did this.) Winona Ryder plays Henry’s high school crush, who’s now a local pharmacist, while Hilary Duff plays a current student who’s got her eye on Henry. Sean Astin, Josh Holloway, and Jon Cryer also star. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Briefly: Community has had a hell of a run of guest stars: Patton Oswalt; Kevin Corrigan, LeVar Burton, Betty White, the Derrick Comedy team and more. Now EW says that Josh Holloway will make his first post-Lost TV appearance in the two-part season finale of Community. And it will be a sequel of sorts to the much-loved ‘Modern Warfare’ episode, in which a paintball tournament where the winner could have priority class registration turned Greendale Community College into a dayglo paint-spattered wasteland.
