Is it May 1 yet? That’s a question we’ve been asking for months as we patiently await the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron. And while there is so, so much to be excited about in the upcoming sequel (Ultron! Vision! Hulkbuster!), one of the things that’s most intriguing is the introduction of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, the super-powered super-twins. The latest Age of Ultron featurette gives them a proper introduction, exploring their powers and personalities.

Since Michael Bay decided to make Transformers: Age of Extinction his last directorial outing with the franchise, it’s been unclear just where the series is heading. We’d heard talk of Mark Wahlberg returning to continue the storyline that began with last summer’s film, but little else since then. Taking a cue from Disney’s Star Wars plans (along with every other major studio’s “expanded universe” attempts), Paramount has hired Akiva Goldsman to create a “writers room” and brainstorm new sequel and spinoff ideas.

Increasingly the Fast and Furious franchise has felt like a superhero franchise. A group of heroes with seemingly infinite strength and abilities taking on the bad guys and becoming a family in the process. It's like Avengers meets the Fantastic Four, but with a lot of cars. With the movies already up to Part 7 and Paul Walker sadly gone, the series can't go on forever. So, how do they continue the brand? Just like the superheroes do: with spinoffs.

‘Get Hard’ Review: Two Hilarious Actors, One Bad Movie

Warner Bros.
Individually, Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart are undeniably hilarious guys. Bringing two major comedic forces together on the big screen just makes sense on both a commercial and entertainment level. Unfortunately, Get Hard largely squanders the talents of Ferrell and Hart on an outdated premise with tired jokes, delivering what essentially amounts to one overlong joke about the terrors of prison rape.

Fox Searchlight Pictures
One of the absolute best films last year was Ruben Ostlund’s Force Majeure, a Swedish dark comedy dealing with marital dynamics. As with most great foreign films, the rights to Force Majeure have been acquired for a U.S. remake (insert eye roll), but there’s hope for this one yet: Julia Louis-Dreyfus is being sought for the leading role, and if you’ve seen Ostlund’s original, you’ll recognize this as some seriously genius casting.

It was good news when Roberto Orci left the director’s chair on Star Trek 3. It was really good news when Fast and Furious franchise director Justin Lin took over. And it was even better news when it was announced that Simon Pegg would take over scripting duties, officially getting us excited for the third installment in the franchise after the somewhat disappointing Star Trek Into Darkness. And now Pegg is getting our hopes up even more, promising that the upcoming sequel is inspired by the original Star Trek television series.
