Star Wars Episode VII: Harrison Ford to Play a “Gigantic” Role

Yesterday we reported that Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher were all in London and that, of course, is where J.J. Abrams is filming Star Wars: Episode VII. So, you can probably infer that the trio from the original Star Wars films is there to work on Episode VII. Now, Deadline is reporting something that should be like a combination of the best birthday present ever with news you’ve scored that promotion at work -- and so much more. […]

Gone Girl: Author Talks Changes in Page to Screen

When that Gone Girl trailer landed last week, the Ben Affleck-starring thriller’s tease sent hearts racing in anticipation for the October release.

Gillian Flynn penned the novel and it quickly went to the top of the […]

9 Can’t Hardly Wait Cameos We Hardly Noticed

Can't Hardly Wait is a classic '90s teen comedy that was billed as a breakout vehicle for star Jennifer Love Hewitt.  It gave us those unforgettable Can't Hardly Wait quotes, but it also would give us much, much more in the form of a slew of stars that went from uncredited turns in that comedy to much, much bigger things.  Watch Can't Hardly Wait online and see if you can spot these stars who went from bit parts to anchoring their own flicks and some […]

Finding a great blood sucker movie can be a difficult task. In fact, most of them suck -- and not in a good way.  But some transcend the vampire-horror genre and are simply great movies -- watch Blade online or watch The Lost Boys online for two that we cannot get enough of.  Click […]

The Fault in Our Stars Extended Trailer: How to Tell Sad Stories

The extended The Fault in Our Stars trailer has landed and it truly has us keenly interested in this flick. We adore how star Shailene Woodley starts the trailer and sets the tone with her narration… even with her backhanded compliment to one of our 21 '80s movies that defined the decade and its boom box scene, Say Anything. The Fault in Our Stars Extended Trailer Woodley stars as a teenager who was diagnosed with cancer at the age of […]

And it appears that Sly is back and ready for action. The other photo is the one that truly caught our eye.  It features new-to-the-series Wesley Snipes ready to have a knife battle with franchise regular Jason […]
