Warner Bros.
Following the recent announcement that Warner Bros. has hired the awesomely talented Michelle MacLaren to direct the first ‘Wonder Woman’ solo film, we also learned that the studio was close to hiring ‘Pan’ screenwriter Jason Fuchs to pen the script. But now it seems that Fuchs may not be the only screenwriter on the project (if he’s still involved at all): rumor has it that WB has hired a total of six writers to deliver six different scripts. Stop scratching your head so much, you’ll make a bald spot.

Just last month, Natalie Portman was in talks to star in the troubled Steve Jobs biopic, which recently landed at Universal after being dropped by Sony (which has been dealing with enough problems of its own in recent weeks). Portman quickly turned down the role of the film’s female lead opposite Michael Fassbender, and although production on the biopic has been troubled, the film continues to pick up new cast members. The latest update on the project has Universal eyeing Kate Winslet to fill their Natalie Portman-shaped void.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ was such a fun and original film with director James Gunn’s fingerprints all over it, and one of the best, most exciting films of the year. That’s due in part to the wise music choices featured on the soundtrack and Peter Quill/Star-Lord’s mixtape. Gunn previously released “Awesome Mix Vol. 0,” which featured the music he played for the cast on set, and now the director is back with another mixtape: the original version of “Awesome Mix Vol. 1.”

You may not believe it in this post-‘The Force Awakens’ trailer world that we now live in, but the first trailer for ‘Jurassic World’ actually did hit the Internet a few weeks ago. And one of the things we’re all dying to know more about—besides what’s up with Chris Pratt and his raptor pals, obviously—is this new hybrid dinosaur which was created in the theme park’s lab on Isla Nublar. In a new interview, director Colin Trevorrow teases his new, horrifying creation that drives much of the action of the film.

If you took time out of your life to go to the theater this year and see ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction,’ then you know that one of the better parts of that wacky film was Mark Wahlberg. The Boston native’s performance as a small town Texas inventor was just one of the exceedingly silly elements of the film, but he was actually pretty fun to watch. As it turns out, Wahlberg also enjoyed starring in a ‘Transformers’ movie, and he’ll be back for more in ‘Transformers 5’—but that was kind of obvious, right?

‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ Review: “Orphans”

EDIT
by Britt Hayes a day ago
For the second week in a row, ‘American Horror Story’ has delivered a pretty solid episode—it could be due in part to the increasingly smaller number of carnival performers combined with the show’s rotating system, which makes at least one cast member (or attraction, in the parlance of a sideshow) sit out each week in order to focus its narrative efforts elsewhere. And maybe “Orphans” works because it tells a story that’s genuinely sad, which accentuates the horror of the hour. And maybe I also think this episode is great because Lily Rabe reprises her role as Sister Mary Eunice, and she is a total queen.

IDW Publishing
This week in sequels you weren’t aware that you wanted, comic book imprint IDW Publishing is releasing ‘The Fly: Outbreak,’ a follow-up to David Cronenberg’s 1986 film—which was based on a 1957 short story of the same name, which was also made into a film in 1958. A sequel to Cronenberg’s ‘The Fly’ was released in 1989 without the involvement of the director, and it doesn’t appear that he had much—if anything—to do with this new comic book sequel, either.

When the first teaser trailer for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ hit the Internet, no one could have predicted that so much attention would be focused on whose voice was actually narrating the trailer. Arguments between journalists and fans alike permeated the discussion around the teaser before it was ultimately confirmed that yes, that was totally Andy Serkis’ voice. Following that whole ordeal came rumors that Serkis would be playing not one, but two characters in the film, similar to the work he provided on ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’—but now the actor has spoken up to clarify his role in ‘The Force Awakens.’
