“Movies that could have been” are always interesting, like Tim Burton’s Superman Lives — which we just saw some test footage from the other day. Another film that could have been was Kerry Conran’s version of John Carter, a film that ultimately went to director Andrew Stanton and left audiences a bit cold. A visual presentation reel from Conran’s time on the project has popped up online, giving us a peek at what his John Carter might have looked like.

As expected, the Fourth of July holiday weekend saw a lot of people heading to the theater. Unfortunately for the new releases, those people gravitated toward films that have already been in theaters for a few weeks. Once again, Jurassic World and Inside Out dominated the top 10, leaving newcomers like Terminator Genisys and Magic Mike XXL out in the cold.

There’s a lot of things about David Ayer’s Suicide Squad movie that seem pretty goofy, like Jared Leto’s method acting approach to playing his scuzzy street thug version of the Joker. But Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn looks downright delightful, and it appears that she had an equally delightful day on set for her birthday, as the cast and crew of the upcoming film gave her a very comic book appropriate birthday cake.

If you have a basement, chances are you keep things like boxes of old stuff, disintegrating furniture and various household items in it. If you have a cool basement, you might have some pinball machines or something down there. But Peter Jackson has the coolest basement of all: the director had Bag End, the home of Bilbo Baggins, installed beneath his home.

One of the best things about the Mission: Impossible series — and many Tom Cruise action films, actually — is how dedicated Cruise is to performing as many of his stunts as possible. Directors have grown increasingly reliable on CG to create dangerous stunts, but Cruise likes to keep things real. You can get a taste of that in the latest clip from Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation which features the actor involved in some crazy chase sequences.

One of the most interesting parts of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be the introduction of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Before the hero gets her very own solo adventure, we’ll see her alongside Batman and Superman as they brood at each other and duke it out. But how big is Gadot’s part in the film, exactly? Director Zack Snyder is promising some big things.

J.K. Simmons — along with Michael Keaton — recently parted ways with Kong: Skull Island, but he still has some other (potential) big franchise plans. Simmons was one of the best parts of the mostly not-great Terminator Genisys, fully committing to his role as a frazzled cop and genuinely appearing to have fun with the film, which really needed it. The actor has now revealed that he’s signed on for more Terminator sequels, guaranteeing that if there are more of these movies, we can at least look forward to his part in them.

Sort of like SNL’s famous fake commercials, this new mock ad for Pixar Depression accurately satirizes the studio’s latest animated film, Inside Out. Pixar’s newest film has been praised by many as their greatest effort to date thanks to its surprisingly complex exploration of emotions, but you can’t help but laugh at this video, which deftly mocks Riley for sulking through her first world problems.
