'The Legend of Korra' fans were a bit taken aback to find that Book 4: "Balance" would premiere on October 3, so soon after the Book 3 finale, but the characters themselves are in for a much longer wait. Not only does the first official trailer for 'The Legend of Korra' season 4 confirm "Balance" as the final season (for anyone unsure), it also teases a major time jump for the upcoming story!

TIFF 2014: 'Whiplash' is Even Better the Second Time Around

This was my second time watching with ‘Whiplash,’ Damien Chazelle’s film about basically two sociopaths and their terrible relationship. One of these sociopaths (I’m exaggerating a little, but not by much) is played by Miles Teller as an up-and-coming jazz drummer trying to make it at the best school in the country. The other is played by J.K. Simmons, his jazz instructor. Both of these people are assholes. Both of these people hate each other. Both of these people kind of need each other, but in the process, both do awful, awful things to each other. There’s no real reconciliation for these two. ‘Whiplash’ will never have these two characters put apart their differences and form a friendship. The dynamic between these two assholes is just what makes ‘Whiplash’ so incredible to watch.

One of the films to gain a lot of buzz at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year was 'Whiplash,' an intense indie drama starring Miles Teller as a young man pursuing a career as a jazz drummer. And if that doesn't sound like it would be very riveting, let this first trailer persuade you.

'The Legend of Korra,' Nickelodeon's 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' sequel series, gave us a first look at season 3's "Change" with last week's trailer, but we were way wrong to think that Comic-Con 2014 would be the next we saw of the show.

I met Webb at his SoHo hotel room -- or, if not his room, the room Sony had him sitting in at that particular moment -- to talk about the future of Spider-Man, what exactly Shailene Woodley's role would have been in the final movie had she not been cut, and Webb offers some, let's say, coy hints at the possible return of J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson.

'Terminator 5,' which has the subtitle 'Genesis,' is going to have the sticky problem of trying to reboot the franchise to start a new trilogy, while also interweaving material from the original four films (though likely it will stick closer to the first film, with nods to some of the sequels) on top of bringing back Arnold Schwarzenegger in some capacity. To help provide the duct tape to make this possible, the film is looking to recruit J.K. Simmons to play a very important role.
