Although trailer for ‘Crimson Peak’ played at Comic-Con over the summer, it was never released online, which makes this first photo of Jessica Chastain your first official sneak peek.

Beginning with its initial announcement, and ‘American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson’s subsequent casting of Cuba Gooding Jr. and Sarah Paulson, we’ve had a hard time wrapping our heads around FX’s new Ryan Murphy drama. Now, ‘Friends’ star David Schwimmer has been cast in the role of O.J.’s lawyer Robert Kardashian (yes, patriarch to those Kardashians), and our bewilderment is certainly coming to a middle.
Previously titled ‘The Nest,’ ‘Sisters’ reunites former ‘SNL’ co-stars and ‘Baby Mama’ pals Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in a film that is here to make all your Fey-Poehler dreams come true.

‘The Babadook’ is undoubtedly the scariest film of the year—not only that, but it’s also one of the best films of 2014, garnering acclaim from critics and audiences alike. The film, which is currently in theaters and on VOD, features a highly original and disturbing new movie monster in the titular and sinister Babadook. And just when you thought you were free of the terrifying monster, he’s back in a new animated Christmas greeting, to wish you a very chilling holiday.
Following the recent announcement that Warner Bros. has hired the awesomely talented Michelle MacLaren to direct the first ‘Wonder Woman’ solo film, we also learned that the studio was close to hiring ‘Pan’ screenwriter Jason Fuchs to pen the script. But now it seems that Fuchs may not be the only screenwriter on the project (if he’s still involved at all): rumor has it that WB has hired a total of six writers to deliver six different scripts. Stop scratching your head so much, you’ll make a bald spot.
Just last month, Natalie Portman was in talks to star in the troubled Steve Jobs biopic, which recently landed at Universal after being dropped by Sony (which has been dealing with enough problems of its own in recent weeks). Portman quickly turned down the role of the film’s female lead opposite Michael Fassbender, and although production on the biopic has been troubled, the film continues to pick up new cast members.

Simon Pegg has built his career on playing charming, affable everymen, but ‘Kill Me Three Times’ presents him with a different sort of role: a charming, affable assassin. Decked out in a black suit and rocking the hell out of a sleazy mustache, the film looks like a delightful left turn for an actor who could have easily coasted for the rest of his career. Hopefully, there are more surprises lurking in the film than what is revealed in the first trailer.
