James Cameron doesn’t lack for confidence. And why should he? This is the guy who made the biggest movie in the history of the universe, and then he topped himself and made the biggest movie in the history of the universe a second time. If there is anything in the world of movies James Cameron can’t do, he hasn’t found it yet.

Like certain other spring series not to be named, ‘Orphan Black’ mercilessly teases us to wait for its return in the spring. We’d previously learned that ‘Shameless’ star Justin Chatwin would take a mysterious new season 3 role in 2015, but now the full details have been revealed, along with cast additions from ‘True Blood,’ ‘Black Swan,’ ‘Warehouse 13' and more.

The new trailer for ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ seemingly has everything you’d want out of a movie. There’s big, crazy action, Samuel L. Jackson acting like a lunatic, adorable puppies, a supporting cast filled with British actors that you love, and, most importantly, the simple presence of Colin Firth. The fact that Firth is playing a gentleman spy in the old school British ‘Avengers’/Sean Connery/James Bond mold is just a bonus.

You can make all the “‘Hotel Transylvania’ sucked!” jokes you want (and then follow them with with all the “Get it? Sucked? Because vampires?” you want), but make no mistake: The movie was a big ol’ hit. The animated film about a hotel for famous monsters in a location I’ve yet to verify (but possibly Transylvania) earned almost $150 million in the United States and another $210 million worldwide back in 2012. That naturally inspired the upcoming sequel, ‘Hotel Transylvania 2,’ which will open in theaters next September, and once again features the voices of Adam Sandler (as Count Dracula), Adam Samberg (as Jonathan, a human), Selena Gomez (as Drac’s daughter Mavis), Kevin James (as Frank[enstein]), and Steve Buscemi (as Wayne the werewolf).

‘Late Night’ host Seth Meyers’ Second Chance Theatre—a second home for the ‘SNL’ skits that never were—has so far given a playground to some wild stuff, but former ‘SNL’ star Jason Sudeikis had something a little more lo-fi in mind for his spin on the ol’ Second Chance-mobile. You can practically hear the pitch meeting: “It’s about a guy who wants to give juggling lessons, but everyone hates him.” Simple enough, right?

Things apparently got buckwild on the set of ‘Into the Woods,’ with acting queen of the world (that is her official title, by the way) Meryl Streep very nearly dying (read: probably not dying, but let’s go with it) when she almost fell off a table. It was, however, a witchy table that she happened to be jumping on while playing a witch, complete with witchy robes, which she (witchily?) tripped on. Streep’s fall was broken by one single brave soul: Emily Blunt.

How to Make an Oscar-Winning Biopic In Five Easy Steps

EDIT
by Matt Singer 11 hours ago
In cinematic circles, there are a few names for this time of year. Awards-minded individuals call the fall “Oscar season” because this is when the campaigning for little gold men gets particularly hot and heavy. The late film critic Roger Ebert used to call it “good movie season,” because the byproduct of all that campaigning was all of the studios’ most promising and intellectually stimulating titles getting released together in the span of two months. In recent years, I’ve started to call the fall by a different name: Biopic season, because barely a week goes by without a new biographical film.
