It's been three years since ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ was unleashed upon an unsuspecting populace, convincing even the most die hard fans of Disney's lucrative franchise that Captain Jack Sparrow needed to take a break. Maybe forever. And yet, these past years have been filled with rumors and casting and almost-casting for ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.’ Like it or not, this film is coming and now it has the young up-and-comer Brenton Thwaites in its drunken, slurred, overlong clutches.

These 'Pirates of the Caribbean' films aren't going anywhere anytime soon as long as Disney has their way -- they're like the 'Saw' franchise of the high seas, Johnny Depp is their Jigsaw, and his eyeliner and ridiculous accent is a trap. But there also need to be some other men in these movies, so Disney is looking for some fresh, young faces to stand next to Johnny Depp in 'Pirates of the Caribbean 5,' and they've got their eye on names like popular newcomers Ansel Elgort and Brenton Thwaites, as well as a few other up and comers.

'The Signal 2': "There Could Be a Crazy Sequel," Says Director William Eubank

Writer-director William Eubank always wanted to make a film that turned audiences on their heads, and he’s done that with ‘The Signal,’ a film which, on the surface, sees a trio of teens chasing down a hacker but are forever changed by what they encounter. While moviegoers will surely be left with just as many questions leaving the theater as they had coming in, the intricacies of this mind-bender are not something Eubank would like to discuss – at least not yet – as he has plans, however far back in his mind for the moment, of exploring these answers in ‘The Signal 2.’

Today brings a new, extended trailer for 'The Giver,' the upcoming film based on the classic, award-winning young-adult novel of the same name by Lowis Lowry, and featuring Meryl Streep as a strict authoritarian figure in a dystopian future (because these are the only kinds of futures young adults have).

'The Signal' Review

One might exit the theater after seeing 'The Signal' and feel compelled to run down a list of its seeming influences. 'Chronicle,' 'Dark City,' 'The Island' and John Byrne's acclaimed 'Next Men' comic of the early 1990s all spring to mind, not to mention scores of movies where a bunch of teens foolishly go somewhere dangerous and isolated when logic says they should turn around and run. But in the thick of it, William Eubank's low-budget sci-fi/horror/thriller is so focused on keeping you in the dark (despite its bright white walls) that these influences don't seem so obvious. The simplicity and elliptical nature of the script and the empathy from the actors (namely relative newcomer Brenton Thwaites) sustains this crafty and modestly budgeted film's hook. You kinda sorta know what's going on from the start, but the movie is sharp enough to toy with you, making it a good deal of fun.

Young-adult movies aren't all romance and supernatural stuff, and in a few months we'll see one of the most acclaimed young-adult novels of all time brought to life on the big screen with 'The Giver.' But before then, we've got a whole set of big, beautiful new character posters to introduce you to the cast.

If you watch Focus Features' 'The Signal' trailer hoping to find out exactly what the movie is about, you're probably in for a bit of a surprise. Although this is clearly a science-fiction thriller full of all kinds of creepy and gory alien imagery, the trailer puts tone first and foremost. And you know what? We're sold on the tone.

The Weinstein Co. failed miserably with their last adaptation of a young-adult book franchise, 'Vampire Academy,' but perhaps they can turn it around with a beloved classic. The first 'The Giver' trailer has debuted online, giving us a look at a different futuristic dystopia, because we don't have enough of those already.

The 'Oculus' trailer isn't shy about who's behind the film's production. Producer Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Pictures have had tremendous success with the horror genre, crafting films like 'Paranormal Activity,' 'Insidious,' 'Sinister' and 'The Purge.' The company's latest film is 'Oculus,' which bears many of the same traits as other Blumhouse films. Domestic setting invaded by supernatural horror? Check. A decent cast of actors lending credibility to what should be genre absurdity? Check. A trailer that relies on surreal imagery and the innocent-yet-creepy voice of a child to sell the chills? Check!
