Following the disappointment of Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life, it’s not as if anyone has particularly high expectations for a Tomb Raider reboot — it wouldn’t have to do too much to surpass the quality of the last film. But Warner Bros. and MGM are apparently working quite hard to get this one as right as possible, and a new report suggests that part of that plan includes hiring a woman to direct.

Now that Magic Mike XXL has been unleashed in theaters, we’re all moving on to Channing Tatum’s next big project: Gambit. The X-Men superhero’s solo movie was one we never thought could reasonably happen, especially after the horror of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But we’re in a new, better X-Men era, and Tatum — along with his producing partner Reid Carolin — are giving us even more hope with their latest update on the film.

A new trailer for the latest installment in the Transporter franchise has arrived, filled with crazy car stunts and crazier action, and a brand new leading man by way of Game of Thrones star Ed Skrein.

A remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds (or any Hitchcock, for that matter) seems absurdly unreasonable and destined to fail. A remake of The Birds from producer Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes banner seems even more absurdly unreasonable, but here we are. The remake has been in development for some time now, but Bay & Co. have finally found a brave soul to volunteer their services.

When Lorne Michaels is producing a movie, it’s probably pretty easy to get a bunch of former and current SNL cast members to show up for cameo appearances. Michaels produced the upcoming indie comedy Staten Island Summer, which the trailer sells as a solid coming of age tale even without all those SNL cameos — though they probably won’t hurt.

We do not understand the mysteries of the universe. With every breakthrough comes the revelation that we know less than we thought we did. Our plane of existence is beset on all sides by things we cannot comprehend, ideas we can barely grasp, and riddles whose answers lie in another time or dimension.

Paramount, like all Hollywood studios, loves a good reboot. This week they’ve got Terminator Genisys coming out, which reimagines the old James Cameron movie in a whole new light. Earlier this year they had a new version of The Gambler with Mark Wahlberg, and last summer they had a big hit with a reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Lately, they’ve begun exploring ways to take their remaking ways to television; they’re working on a Shutter Island series based on the Martin Scorsese film and a American Gigolo show with producer Jerry Bruckheimer. The latest addition to their remake slate: Fatal Attraction, which is also headed to the small screen.

The best scene in Terminator Genisys arrives early. Director Alan Taylor painstakingly recreates the opening scenes of James Cameron’s The Terminator, from the arrival of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s killer cyborg to the infamous moment when he confronts a group of ruffians for a change of clothes. And then something weird happens: another Terminator, also played by Schwarzenegger, shows up to fight his counterpart to the death. It’s a cool scene and its creators have divulged exactly how they pulled it off.
