Magicians: they’re no longer just people who remind of you of the good choices you made in life when seen at children’s birthday parties. Magicians are now “cool” and “sexy” and “played by Lizzy Caplan.” She’s taking the place of Isla Fisher, who was presumably busy keeping a brave face as she watched her husband of six years crawl into an elephant’s vagina, as one of two new key acquisitions for the fledgling franchise. As the newly released trailer embedded above indicates, she’s one of three newcomers, along with Chinese singer Jay Chou and actual boy wizard Daniel Radcliffe, showing a little range by portraying a character who cannot do magic, but does somehow have access to every single computer in the world, which is slightly more implausible.

If you’re at all familiar with Olympus Has Fallen, the surprise 2013 hit about an attack on the white house (no, not White House Down, the other one), you know it was a fairly ridiculous action movie. As is the case with all sequels, you need to go bigger for the follow-up and London Has Fallen does not disappoint: it is exponentially more ridiculous than the first film.

Olympus Has Fallen was definitely — and surprisingly — the better of the two big White House action movies released in 2013 (the other being White House Down, of course). The film certainly has its fans, and those fans will be bummed to learn that the upcoming sequel, London Has Fallen, has been delayed to 2016.

Clive Owen has been having something of a comeback, with his superb role on Steven Soderbergh’s series ‘The Knick’ giving him a much-needed boost and reminding audiences that he’s still damn great. Perhaps seeking to capitalize on that comes the trailer for ‘Last Knights,’ a long-delayed medieval action-drama which was originally filmed two years ago and has since been languishing in studio limbo.

It may still be a few years before we see Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme on the big screen, but following the studio’s official confirmation of Benedict Cumberbatch’s casting in ‘Doctor Strange,’ we’re going to start hearing more updates and rumors about the film. Take the latest rumor, for instance, which has Marvel eyeing Morgan Freeman, Bill Nighy, and Ken Watanabe—not for three different roles, but all for the same supporting role in the film. Very intriguing.

Although it was rumored that Tom Hiddleston was being eyed for the leading role in director Timur Bekmambetov's upcoming remake of 'Ben-Hur,' it seems the epic redo has found its leading man: 'Boardwalk Empire' star Jack Huston. Oh, sorry, guess you might not recognize him unless he's missing half of his face.
