ScreenCrush wraps up the latest in movies and TV you might have missed. Today, a fan theory attempts to prove some radical about Pixar movies, we get our first look at Bradley Cooper in 'American Sniper,' and the 'Legend of Korra' video game releases a sneak peek.
During Universal's horror golden age of the '30s and '40s, the studio's beloved monsters all existed in aesthetically similar movies. When they starting going into decline, they even started showing up in each other's films to team up and/or battle to the death. So it makes perfect sense for the Universal of 2014 to see potential in a shared cinematic universe of their iconic monsters and it looks like the upcoming 'Dracula Untold' will kick it all off.
We still know next-to-nothing about 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' but with a production this massive and anticipated, the rumor mill never stops churning. The next batch of information about J.J. Abrams' top secret sequel concerns the identity of certain characters, information about a few key locations, and the possible disfigurement of everyone's favorite Wookiee. Although everything written below is unconfirmed until we see the movie with our own eyes, consider this your spoiler warning. Read on with caution!

ScreenCrush wraps up the latest in movies and TV you might have missed. Today, the launch trailer for the 'Shadow of Mordor' video game debuts, 'Clerks 3' is apparently happening, and someone proposes a wacky Marvel theory.
The latest and final 'John Wick' trailer barely even hints at the insane, violent pleasures of the finished film. Keanu Reeves' latest action film premiered to rave reviews at Fantastic Fest last week and for good reason -- it's a totally insane, wildly creative and surprisingly fresh experience that plays to all of its star's strengths and none of his weaknesses. This is the movie that proves that there's still life to be found in the American action film.
The 'Taken' films have been a blessing and a curse for star Liam Neeson. Sure, he's found great success in his newfound career as an aging action hero, but the days of Neeson being a completely respectable presence in prestige films seem to have come to an end. So the 'Taken 3' trailer fills us with mixed feelings. We'd love to see Neeson doing something else, but man, he sure is good at killing people.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away (AKA, a few years ago), David Fincher was courted to direct 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' We know how that turned out: J.J. Abrams ultimately landed the job and Fincher went on to direct an adaptation of Gillian Flynn's 'Gone Girl.' However, in the world of trivia, this has got to be one of the most interesting near-misses in blockbuster history.
