When 20th Century Fox was founded in 1935 (the combination of Fox Films Corporation and Twentieth Century Pictures) it's possible that the founders of the company may have joked that their name could become obsolete in sixty five years, but it seems unlikely they were thinking that far ahead. Now -- seventy-eight years later -- the company's name has been changed to reflect the times and updated to 21st Century Fox for everything but the movie side of their business.

Bruno Mars is the latest big name to be cast in the animated feature 'Rio 2.' In other news, Fox is making a 'Rio 2.' Watch the trailer for the first 'Rio' below.
Remember back when rumors of Patrick Stewart returning to future 'X-Men' movies as the beloved Professor Charles Xavier were circling, and then the actor pretty much confirmed them at the Montreal Comic Convention? Well, we didn't realize it'd be happening so soon! Actually... we kind of did, but we thought it would just be him. Turns out, Professor X will officially be appearing in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' along with another well-known character from previous 'X-Men' films.
Director James Mangold is about to finish up production on 'The Wolverine' with only a few more days of production left, so that means we should be getting close to seeing the first trailer, right? After a Q&A with Mangold and the film's star Hugh Jackman, the first Japanese calligraphy-style poster was revealed, and the first official photos emerged not too long before. But seriously, we want to see the trailer!
The latest issue of Empire has gifted us with a new image from James Mangold's 'The Wolverine,' (which you can see after the break) but perhaps more importantly is a straight-from-Mangold revelation regarding where exactly this film fits into the 'X-Men' movie universe. Is it indeed a direct follow-up to 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' as previously believed? And will it be consistent with the mythology presented in the other 'X-Men' flicks?
Ang Lee's adaptation of 'Life of Pi' garnered rave reviews after its premiere at the New York Film Festival, with many lauding its celebration of the human spirit as well as its technical prowess. (Its use of 3D is said to rival 'Avatar.') While this was apparent in the official movie trailer and clips, an additional brief peek into this fantastical world Lee created has just hit and it's definitely worth your 54-seconds.
Though Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the gang are turning 62 this November 25, it's 2015's celebration that 'Peanuts' fans should anticipate. Peanuts Worldwide, the joint venture of Charles M. Schultz Creative Associates and Iconix Brand Group, Inc., is planning to bring these beloved characters to the big screen in a feature film event a couple years from now.
Inhuman monsters who kidnap young women for the purposes of human trafficking have families too. And, it turns out, they're just as inhuman and monstrous. In 'Taken 2,' the father of one of the many (MANY!) men Liam Neeson killed in the pursuit of his daughter in 'Taken' swears vengeance. "I don't care what he did," he tells Neeson's Brian Mills when they finally meet. "I'll never see his face again, or hear his voice again." Yes, that sweet angelic voice, no doubt cooing something about how he wants that new sex slaves' manacles tightened before she tries to escape again.
It seemed that after 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,' the sequel to the James Franco-starring 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes,' set a release date for May 23, 2014, the entire production fell into a short bit of chaos. Rupert Wyatt, who was originally pegged to direct the film, gave up the gig presumably in favor of 'Agent 13,' starring Charlize Theron. Thankfully, 20th Century Fox built up a shortlist of directors, and they've finally selected 'Cloverfield' helmer Matt Reeves to step in.
We want nothing more to fall in love with Ang Lee's movie adaptation of the 'Life of Pi.' The latest trailers and images dolled out to help promote the film are simply stunning to look at, and everyone seems to be hoping that the final product will match our preconceived expectations. Now, thanks to some early reviews and reactions coming in from the 'Life of Pi' debut at the 2012 New York Film Festival, we finally have some clue whether to expect the best or the worst from the theatrical release on November 21, 2012.
