Do androids dream of Bryan Cranston? This is a very real question we’ll get to answer in the near future, as the former Breaking Bad star and all-around TV treasure Cranston has signed on to lead a new sci-fi anthology series based on the writings of Philip K. Dick, and brought to life by none other than Battlestar Galactica alum Ron Moore.

Bryan Cranston’s most famous role to date (and the one responsible for his late-blooming popularity) was that of Walter White, the unassuming teacher-turned-meth kingpin on AMC’s hit drama Breaking Bad. His latest role has him slipping the shoe on the other foot as real-life DEA agent Brian Mazur, who infiltrated Pablo Escobar’s drug empire to engineer one of the most famous drug busts of all time. The first trailer for aptly-titled The Infiltrator offers our first look at this new dramatic thriller, which puts Cranston back in full-on mustache-mode.
In addition to starring in ensemble comedies like Top Five and Think Like a Man, Kevin Hart has made a career out of playing one-half of an unlikely pairing. See also: Get Hard with Will Ferrell, The Wedding Ringer with Josh Gad, the Ride Along movies with Ice Cube and the upcoming action-comedy Central Intelligence with Dwayne Johnson. Hart will continue his streak of Odd Couple comedies with Bryan Cranston in the long-developing remake of the hit French film The Intouchables.
Prequels often afford the ability to trace history of fan-favorite characters, even if certain backstories are best-left unexplored. Case in point, Better Call Saul has lent plenty of depth to Bob Odenkirk’s erstwhile Jimmy McGill, though the actor himself wants fans to “stop hoping” that Bryan Cranston’s Walter White drops by for an appearance.
All throughout the previous Kung Fu Panda films, Jack Black’s Po thought he was all alone, having been orphaned as a cub and raised with nary another panda in sight…until now. That all changes with Kung Fu Panda 3, in which Po meets his long-lost family and his father takes him to their hidden panda village in a magical moment you can preview for yourself via a new clip from the upcoming sequel.
When the first trailer for Jay Roach’s Trumbo dropped this past summer, I thought I was getting a brief peek at what would become one of fall’s most buzzed about biopics and with an Oscar-worthy leading role. After all, it stars Bryan Cranston as Dalton Trumbo, the politically undeterred Hollywood screenwriter blacklisted for his Communist beliefs during the Red Scare. A movie about movies with a great cast, what could go wrong? But that’s just the thing with biopics, especially ones about Hollywood, which face the risk of mistaking homage for pastiche.
DreamWorks has released a new trailer for Kung Fu Panda 3, featuring all sorts of adorable panda antics and one delightfully exasperated red panda kung fu master. Jack Black is back as Po, who embarks on his greatest journey yet — but first, there’s a bit of a family reunion in store.
Over the weekend we learned that Wes Anderson is returning to the stop-motion animation format for his next film, which will take place in the world of dogs, thus sort of making up for how many dogs Anderson has killed in his films (including his previous stop-motion film, Fantastic Mr. Fox). And it looks like Anderson is already lining up the voice cast, which includes a few regulars along with one Anderson-newcomer.
Breaking Bad might have shown us Heisenberg’s final stand long ago, but any good chemist can attest, there’s always more knowledge to be gained. Rev up the RV and break out the hazmat suits, we’ve cooked up another batch of Breaking Bad facts for the 20th episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?’!
Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla was received mostly well, though it did evoke some divisive reactions — some people liked the characters, but hated the lack of actual Godzilla, while others praised Edwards for his restraint with the classic movie monster (I am in this camp) and criticized the underdeveloped characters (also in this one). At least one actor sides with the latter group: Bryan Cranston isn’t very happy about the way his character was handled in the movie.
