The ever-growing popularity of the BBC's Benedict Cumberbatch-Martin Freeman starring 'Sherlock' all but assures that the modernized detective drama will return for a fourth season, its shocking season 3 cliffhanger not withstanding, but the similarly growing popularity of its leads makes scheduling especially difficult. Now, a new report suggests we may see the fourth series trilogy in 2016, with a few well-earned changes to the storytelling.

'The LEGO Movie' Review

"Everything is Awesome!"
Much has been said about our recent cinema kowtowing to nerds. From the massive success of 'The Avengers' to the ill-fated sci-fi odes of 'Paul.' (Anyone remember 'Paul?') The nerds have won. But whither the spaz?
Take a moment to remember the spaz. The hyperactive, highly-excitable enthusiast who can barely stay in one place for longer than sixty seconds and makes a little bit of a mess of things with his chaotic energy. 'The LEGO Movie' is the film for that person. From its opening frame to its surprisingly heartfelt conclusion, 'The LEGO Movie' has a bright and brash, candy-colored go go go dynamism that crackles with a glorious alacrity set to the tempo of the classroom's biggest and most disruptive spaz.

The first trailer for 'Transcendence' has landed -- which stars Johnny Depp and is directed by Wally Pfister -- and it's familiar but fascinating. The film is a thriller about the possible dangers of the singularity, or at least the singularity fronted by Johnny Depp.

Mid-90's Dustin Hoffman-Morgan Freeman virus thriller 'Outbreak' may have inspired the 'Friends' classic gag 'Outbreak 2: The Virus Takes Manhattan,' but seventeen years later, the joke is all-too-real. NBC has officially begun development of an 'Outbreak' TV series based on the 1995 thriller of the same name, as written by the former team behind 'E.R.' Quick, someone call Crystal the monkey!

'Now You See Me' Review

The magic of cinema and the magic of magic tend to cancel each other out. Once you convince someone they're seeing alternate realities, alien conquerers, and distant futures, pulling a rabbit out of a hat looks a little underwhelming. It is a cruel, sad truth that a single cut negates all the impact of the greatest act of sleight of hand.
So, a movie about magic needs to be about more than just magic. The silly but not entirely unpleasurable 'Now You See Me' is about showmanship. There are a lot of good actors in this movie, including Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Melanie Laurent, and Mark Ruffalo. They play illusionists, mentalists, hucksters, debunkers, billionaire industrialists, Interpol officers, and FBI agents, respectively(ish). All of them, no matter whether they're wool-pullers or wool-pullees, look like they're having a grand old time misdirecting us through a labyrinthine plot involving magicians, bank heists, and decades-old vendettas. For a while, the fun is infectious. I found myself chuckling at the outrageous character names -- Dylan Rhodes! Jack Wilder! Arthur Tressler! Thaddeus Bradley! J. Daniel Atlas! -- and grinning at the ludicrous twists. Like a mark at a good magic act, I knew I was being worked over and was enjoying every second.

'Last Vegas' Trailer: It's Like 'The Hangover' With Old People

Okay: that headline is unfair. The first 'Last Vegas' trailer isn't 'The Hangover' with old people...it's 'The Hangover' with four actors who were, once upon a time, some of the absolute best in the business. There was a time when when Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline headlining a movie would have been a major event. But what about now? The 'Last Vegas' trailer certainly thinks this is a big deal, but is it?
