It was well known that -- partly to appeal to an ever-growing global audience -- Marvel thought ahead and included Chinese actors for an extended cut of 'Iron Man 3' that was made specifically for the Chinese market. Now that the film has been released in China, the content of those additional scenes have been revealed, and it turns out that the rest of the world isn't missing much.
Ever the busy producer, J.J. Abrams not only has 'Star Trek,' 'Star Wars' and 'Revolution' on his plate, his company Bad Robot is looking to get the rights to Stephen King's '11/22/63' and bring it to the small screen.
'Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story' was a pretty funny movie that was a surprise hit in 2004. It pitted Vince Vaughn and his gang of outsiders against Ben Stiller and his corporate stooges in a winner-takes-all game of dodgeball. When a film does as well as 'Dodgeball' did (it made over $100 million at the box office), a sequel is practically guaranteed, and though it took a decade, it looks like they're finally getting around to it.
When 20th Century Fox was founded in 1935 (the combination of Fox Films Corporation and Twentieth Century Pictures) it's possible that the founders of the company may have joked that their name could become obsolete in sixty five years, but it seems unlikely they were thinking that far ahead. Now -- seventy-eight years later -- the company's name has been changed to reflect the times and updated to 21st Century Fox for everything but the movie side of their business.
Though we're still waiting for actual casting announcements for 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' another big aspect of the new Disney-run Lucasfilm is the idea of multiple 'Star Wars' films a year. And though we've heard about spin-off movies for some of the characters, the latest rumor is that the popular 'Star Wars' video game 'Knights of the Old Republic' may be brought to the big screen.
Though we have no idea when we're going to get a trailer (word is late March), 'The Wolverine' will be coming to theaters this summer, and like so many event films, the movie is starting it's advertising blitz through social media. Today they released a new photo of Hugh Jackman playing the titular character.
After the runaway success of 'The Lorax,' it's no surprise we're going to get more Dr. Seuss-derived animated movies. Next on dock from the makers of 'Lorax' and 'Horton Hears a Who' is 'The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.'
Shooting has just started on 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' one of 2014's biggest movies, and Sony has confirmed that Paul Giamatti has joined the cast (as Rhino) along with Colm Feore, and teased what the film is about.
