While we’re still not entirely sure who Andy Serkis is actually playing on screen in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ we do know that the actor returned to once again provide some of his excellent motion capture work in the sequel. And though he’s keeping his lips sealed about the role he’ll play in ‘Age of Ultron,’ he has spoken out about some of the motion capture support that went into re-teaming with Marvel’s Avengers.
Tis the season, and to get in the holiday spirit of things, the new Vince Vaughn comedy ‘Unfinished Business’ is offering up your choice of red or green band trailers. Or both, if you’re feeling particularly inclined to watch basically the exact same trailer twice. One is suggestive, while the other is more blatant with the profanity. It depends on what you’re in the mood for, or how many relatives are already hanging around at your house on this lovely Thanksgiving eve.
The holiday season is upon us, which means you've probably got some extra free time on your hands—and if you've got an Amazon Prime account, there's some great streaming content hitting the service in December, so you should definitely take advantage of that subscription.

Bloody Disgusting reports that Paramount intends to post-convert the film to 3D, presumably to accommodate the spooky ‘Ghost Dimension.’ Apparently the Ghost Dimension is actually just the third dimension, so I guess we’ve already solved that mystery. Post-converting the film to 3D could be OK or it could be a huge detriment to the project, as the films rely mostly on in-home surveillance camera footage. This lower quality footage could obscure some of the flaws in the conversion process, which might be the point.
ScreenCrush wraps up the latest in movies and TV you might have missed. Today, Colin Trevorrow discusses CGI in ‘Jurassic World,’ Guillermo del Toro finishes writing a DC superhero movie, and the final episodes of ‘Selfie’ get a new home.

Happy Thanksgiving! Okay, enough of that, let’s talk about a far more important holiday, cinematically speaking: Independence Day and ‘Independence Day,’ and specifically let’s talk about the film’s sequel. The follow-up to Roland Emmerich’s 1996 movie about Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum, and Bill Pullman fighting off an alien invasion has been in development at Fox for a while now, and for a long time the plan was to make two ‘ID4’ sequels back to back. At that point, Smith’s participation was a question mark, with the studio supposedly going so far as to write two versions of the script; one with the Fresh Prince and one without him.
‘Big Hero 6’ may only be tangentially related to the Marvel comic on which it is based and completely unconnected to the larger Marvel cinematic universe, but it still has the obligatory Stan Lee cameo. Yes, this is an animated movie featuring an animated version of the legendary comic book icon/Marvel mascot. But hey, it’s a tradition at this point.
‘The Walking Dead’ season 5 will come to a temporary midseason conclusion “Coda” this coming Sunday, but the franchise’s past and future weigh heavily on creator/executive producer Robert Kirkman. Not only has a recent interview brought to light the creator’s “regret” over a past season finale, but so too do we have an update on the shifting locations of ‘The Walking Dead’'s spinoff companion series.
Last night, I received an urgent message from editors: "With Thanksgiving this week, and football such a big part of Thanksgiving, you should write a piece on the best movies about football." "Sure," I replied. TO me, this seems like a very esoteric topic and I'm not sure there's a lot of interest in a post like this, but I certainly don't want to look like I'm not a team player and disregard a feature request. Anyway, here's a list of our eight favorite movie footballs! Happy thanksgiving! [Ed. note: We meant "football movies"]
