Game Of Thrones' Maisie Williams In Talks For The Last Of Us
Neil Druckmann is writing the script for this planned The Last of Us film adaptation, with Sam Raimi producing. No director has been confirmed, leaving us just enough hope that no one will sign on the dotted line, forcing Raimi to take the reigns himself.

Star Wars' James Earl Jones And Carrie Fisher Only Recently Met For The First Time

Is Ms. Marvel Going To Be In Avengers 2?
With Avengers: Age of Ultron, the creator of such female-empowering properties as Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Firefly has revealed he has four female leads lined up for his next Marvel outing. Do the math. This could mean an exciting new addition to the Marvel movie universe. Perhaps Ms. Marvel herself?
Can You Find The Secret Hidden In The One I Love's Trailer?
How do you sell a movie that's premise takes a bonkers but brilliant turn in its second act, without giving away said twist? This is the seemingly impossible task put to the marketing team of RADiUS, the distributor of the unconventional and sensational romantic-comedy The One I Love. From the film's first trailer viewable above, it seems the answer is to tease--but not reveal--that twist, then roll out its scads of critical praise. Well played, RADiUS. Well played.
See Nicolas Cage As Superman In The Death Of Superman Lives' Trailer
The trailer is rough, admittedly, and relies on a lot of pretty snazzy exclusive interviews. Particularly with Burton, who seems oddly reticent to discuss it even though his involvement with the film was a sweet pay-or-play deal of $5 million that he collected despite the movie never happening (Cage signed the same deal, for $20 million).
If Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Gets A Sequel, Expect Bebop And Rocksteady

Comic-Con's Best Costumes So Far Include Homer Simpson, Snow White And Tons Of Superheroes
Not everyone dresses up at Comic-Con, but it’s definitely not just a few weirdos either. Inside the convention center or anywhere within a five hundred yard radius, you can’t turn around twice without seeing a handful of people representing their favorite superhero/ cartoon character/ science fiction legend/ throwback hero.
Does Marvel's Doctor Strange Already Have A Composer?
While Benedict Cumberbatch was busy dodging Doctor Strange rumors during the Dreamworks panel, Christopher Young let a few tidbits slip in the middle of ”Behind the Music: Crime, Death and Resurrection.” The panel consisted of six composers discussing their work on various projects and the frequent Scott Derrickson collaborator commented on his possible involvement in the director’s ‘Marvellous’ next project.
Here's Why The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Will Be Aliens, After All
The way he phrased it, this is just a step in the evolution of the Turtles, who have changed over the years. It does betray the origin of the four turtles, who are supposed to have been affected by radioactive goo.
Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Just Got A Hysterical Red Band Trailer
Weirdly enough, this one looks like a whodunit, with Lou getting shot in the present day, and the gang getting into the Hot Tub Time Machine© to end up in the future. Clark Duke is also back as Jacob, and the trailer throws us a curveball by suddenly, conspicuously sliding Adam Scott in there as if we wouldn't notice Leslie Knope's main squeeze.
Christopher Nolan Dazzles Hall H With A Breathtaking New Interstellar Trailer
The powerhouse duo surprised crowds by showing up unannounced at the tail end of the Paramount panel in Hall H. Matthew McConaughey took the stage first, following a new Interstellar clip that largely relied on old newsreels of politicians (like John F. Kennedy), physicists (Neil Degrasse Tyson was spotted) and former astronauts (such as Buzz Aldrin) talking about risk being “the price of progress” and how our community used to take such pride in moments of human accomplishment.
