Chris Rock: Comedian, actor, and now he can add director to his resume with 'Top Five,' a film that had plenty of people talking when it premiered at this year's film festival in Toronto. Paramount wasted no time picking the film up, and it seems like the studio is wasting very little time in getting Rock's very promising directorial debut out there as quickly as possible. Judging by the first trailer, featuring a cast of incredibly funny and talented folks, this is going to be delightful.
We're only about a month away from the next chapter in 'The Hunger Games' saga, and in case you needed a reminder, we've got a brand new trailer for you. In it, Katniss Everdeen also gets a reminder, but it's one of the more harrowing variety, as she's sent to District 12 to see the devastation that was wrought upon her home district in the wake of the events of 'Catching Fire.'
Elizabeth Peña, the beloved hispanic actress known for early roles in films like 'La Bamba,' 'Down and Out in Beverly Hills,' and '*batteries not included,' has sadly passed away at the age of 55, according to her nephew. Peña had recently finished filming on the first season of the El Rey Network series 'Matador.'
Hold onto your butts (that joke never gets old. Never) because we've got the first poster for 'Jurassic World.' We know, the movie doesn't come out until 2015, but that isn't keeping us from being totally over the three prehistoric moons with excitement about this dang poster.
Now that Joaquin Phoenix is out of the running for Marvel's 'Doctor Strange,' we're sure to be hearing more big names as the search is on for a major star to become the Sorcerer Supreme. And here's the latest rumor: Ewan McGregor is the current favorite to fill those magic shoes.
Well that certainly escalated quickly: over the last couple of weeks Robert Downey Jr. has played rather coy about what's next for Tony Stark and Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but now it looks like we know the answer, as he's just been recruited for 'Captain America 3,' in a storyline that's said to bring Marvel's Civil War arc to the big screen -- which is a rather huge development.
Well it's about time! Marvel has finally revealed an officially licensed dancing baby Groot toy from 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' and this little dude will be available to take home just in time for you to put him under the tree for that special someone for Christmas. Or if you're anything like us, you're already making plans to use him instead of a Christmas tree this year. Festive!
Following yesterday's glimpse at the first images from 'Focus' comes the first official trailer for what's being described as a con-man romance film from the guys who brought us 'Crazy Stupid Love.' In 'Focus,' Will Smith definitely seems to be playing a slick variation on Ryan Gosling's character from their previous film, and if anyone knows how to play slick and charismatic, it's Will Smith, for sure.
We've got some sad news today as we've learned that Jan Hooks, former star of 'Saturday Night Live,' has passed away at the age of 57. Hooks, who was a member of the cast from 1986 to 1991, also starred on the hit sitcom 'Designing Women,' and more recently played Jenna's mom on episodes of '30 Rock.'
Nowadays it's common for studios to take the beloved properties from our youth and update them into new movie franchises -- hell, they're even doing it with old board and video games. So it makes sense for someone to jump ahead of the curve and imagine what a gritty reboot of 'Adventure Time' might look like, and the results are actually quite charming.
