We've heard plenty about 'LOST' veteran Damon Lindelof's upcoming HBO rapture drama, 'The Leftovers,' based on 2011's Tom Perotta book of the same name, but little in the way of casting or shooting. Now Mr. Jennifer Aniston himself, Justin Theroux, has joined in a leading role, but what's the new religious series all about?

There have been a lot of complaints about 'Star Trek Into Darkness' since the film opened, one of them from female fans who felt that having character Carol Marcus (Alice Eve) strip down to her bra and panties for no apparent reason was sexist. The complaints became too much for 'Star Trek Into Darkness' writer/producer Damon Lindelof who finally admitted the shot was "gratuitous" and "unnecessary."

Whatever the "Justice League problem" means to you, Lord knows there is one.

Here's a fun new joke: How many writers does it take to finish a 'World War Z' script when the film has already completed shooting and the release has been pushed back to next summer? If you answered "all of them," you're probably right.
