The 'Fantastic Four' reboot may have gone through a tumultuous scripting process, with Simon Kinberg the latest writer brought in on the project, but with a March 2015 release looming, the cast will need to fall into place shortly if they're going to make the date. And now five new names (and two old ones) have been mentioned for the roles of Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Sue Storm/Invisible Woman and Johnny Storm/The Human Torch.

We hope you like yourself some Michael B. Jordan. The actor, who is rightly earning raves for his role in 'Fruitvale Station,' has been attached to just about every upcoming franchise in Hollywood including 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' the 'Fantastic Four' reboot and a 'Rocky' spinoff.
Well, now Jordan has found himself at the center of another big rumor - one that would have him starring in 'Independence Day 2' as Will Smith's son.

Lucasfilm seems content with leaving us completely in the dark side when it comes to 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' refraining from announcing any castings. However, they haven't stopped the rumors and reports from leaking out as to which stars are looking to join the franchise. Following a report that 'The Host' star Saoirse Ronan was looking to join the new trilogy, the latest word on the street is that two more major stars are wanting in.

The 'Rocky' franchise had its fair share of ups and downs over the course of six great-to-awful films, but 2006's 'Rocky Balboa' seemed to definitively close the door on the story of Sylvester Stallone's good-natured boxer. However, it turns out that the saga isn't over quite yet!
A spinoff titled 'Creed' is in the works and it will follow the grandson of Apollo Creed, the champion boxer and chief rival/best friend of Rocky Balboa.

'Fruitvale Station' Review

There are no spoilers in 'Fruitvale Station.' Ryan Coogler's debut film, which won prestigious awards at both the Sundance and Cannes Film Festivals, opens with the actual cellphone camera footage of Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old black man, who was pulled off a BART train in Oakland, CA after reports of a scuffle. Late night rowdiness and nervous police officers quickly devolved into chaos and the next thing you know Grant, already in custody, gets a bullet in his back from close range.
With the shot still ringing in our ears, the movie rewinds 24 hours to share with us the joys and struggles of Grant's last day on Earth. It's not a subtle film, but it's an emotional one. The weaknesses during certain moments of the script are more than compensated for by the remarkable performances of Michael B. Jordan, Melonie Diaz and Octavia Spencer. What's key to the film's success is how the three roles you've seen a thousand times before – the troubled young man, the baby mama and the suffering mother – are spun to ensure that this isn't just another tale from the hood.
