The cast of The Huntsman just got a bit more compelling. In addition to Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron and Emily Blunt, the Snow White and the Huntsman sequel will also star Jessica Chastain. That’s almost too many awesomely talented people for us to handle. Oh, and Nick Frost will be reprising his role as one of the seven dwarves.

The first Crimson Peak trailer is here and it showcases a side of director Guillermo del Toro that we haven’t seen in far too long. Before Pacific Rim and Hellboy and even the dark fantasy of Pan’s Labyrinth, he made horror movies. Now, del Toro has returned to the genre where he made his name and the first footage from the resulting film looks as gorgeous and creepy as you’d imagine.

Oh, that this was true. Normally, it's nice to pretend that late night "flashbacks" like this are real -- sure, Oprah Winfrey and Jimmy Fallon totally made a soap opera together! -- but this new entry into the subgenre of chat show skits is so weird, so strange, so great that we can only wish it were true. Wish along with us.

On paper, 'A Most Violent Year' doesn't sound like anything special. It's a story we've seen a hundred times before: a criminal finds his bloody business creeping into his family life, threatening to tear down everything he's worked so hard to build. However, when you put J.C. Chandor in the director's chair and cast people like Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain in the lead roles, what was once old starts to feel new again.

Once upon a time, back in 2012, Jessica Chastain was in talks with Marvel to star in 'Iron Man 3' as scientist Maya Hansen. Chastain eventually passed on the role saying, "My schedule is jammed packed and I can’t fit anything else in." (The part would eventually go to actress Rebecca Hall.)
