A while back we heard talk of Chris Pine potentially starring in Wonder Woman opposite Gal Gadot, but then we also heard some rumors about Pine potentially playing one of the leading superhero roles in Green Lantern Corps — that seemed to confirm that Pine was in talks to star in something for Warner Bros. and DC, and now it’s been made official. Pine will play Diana Prince’s love interest in Wonder Woman.
Half the gag of Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer revival lies in actors having (visibly) aged an additional 14 years since the 2001 cult classic, despite playing the same characters on their First Day of Camp. Now, a new featurette for Netflix revival sees the cast reflecting on the decade-plus gap, including that mystery which eludes us all: Why doesn’t Paul Rudd age?
This delightful new video from the set of Star Trek Beyond offers fans a chance to boldly go where no Star Trek fan has gone before — with a walk-on role in the upcoming sequel. But this isn’t your average contest. Fans are encouraged to contribute to the Omaze charity fundraiser in order to participate, meaning that your goodwill could earn you a very good time.
There’s something old fashioned and endearing about the trailer for The Finest Hours that makes us forgive its obvious sins. Like the CGI that doesn’t look quite up to snuff just yet. Or an unfortunate song choice. Or the thick Bah-stun accents that Chris Pine, Casey Affleck and Eric Bana are saddled with. But who are we to say no to the totally true tale of a brave Coast Guard who sets out to rescue the crew of an oil tanker that has split in half while a deadly storm rages all around him? That would be like saying no to baseball and apple pie.
No one knew for certain if Wet Hot American Summer could pull off its prequel reunion series on Netflix, but by the full trailer, the First Day of Camp looks like everything we’ve dreamed. See the star-studded cast reunited (and joined by some other ridiculously famous folk) for our first official trailer, along with a slick new poster!

Paramount and Justin Lin are just about ready to hit engage on the production of Star Trek Beyond, the third film in the rebooted Star Trek franchise featuring Chris Pine as Captain James T. Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Mr. Spock. Shooting is scheduled to begin this week in Vancouver, but before cameras could roll there was some negotiating that had to get done between Paramount and Pine and Quinto’s agents.
As one of their first attempts to compete with Marvel Studios and their growing Cinematic Universe, DC and Warner Bros. released Green Lantern, a 2011 film starring Ryan Reynolds as test-pilot-turned-super-powered-space-cop Hal Jordan. The movie, which was fairly faithful to the DC comics, introduced Hal and the entire Green Lantern Corps, a whole force of space cops from all over the universe, including popular Green Lantern characters like Sinestro (Mark Strong) and Kilowog (Michael Clarke Duncan). The movie was designed to launch a new franchise of Green Lantern adventures (it even ended on a cliffhanger teasing Sinestro’s turn from hero to villain). This was going to be the start of a brave new era of DC films!
One of the most talked about films at this year’s Sundance film festival was Z for Zachariah, the new film from Compliance director Craig Zobel. Lionsgate has debuted the first trailer for the post-apocalyptic love triangle drama, imagining a world in which the last few people standing are also three of our most beautiful. So yeah, that can’t end well.
It’s been a little bit since we got an update on Warner Bros.’ Wonder Woman film, but it looks as if casting has officially begun on the hero’s first solo adventure. Chris Pine is in talks to join the upcoming film, reminding you that no, he still hasn’t been in a superhero film yet — although he was previously rumored as a person of interest for WB’s upcoming Green Lantern reboot.
