Thanos Probably Not The Villain In Thor 2, Says Chris Hemsworth


By: Katey Rich Based on the search terms that have been leading people to this site, we weren’t the only ones who got to the end of The Avengers and were left asking, “Wait, who’s that alien guy?” Luckily our own Eric Eisenberg explained it all for us, and now we know that alien dude was Thanos, the insane alien being who’s one of the most dangerous villains in the Avengers universe. The mid-credits tag left most of us assuming that Thanos []

Anthony Hopkins Sought For Red 2 Villain Role


By: Sean O’Connell Bruce Willis and Hellen Mirren might be facing off against Hannibal Lecter if the producers of the Red sequel get their way. OK, so not Lecter the character – though that would make for an outstanding Avengers-level mash-up that automatically would make me more interested than usual in seeing this sequel. But Summit Entertainment has made it known toDeadline that they’d like to get Anthony Hopkins to play the villainous role in the soon-to-be-filming Red sequel, and that the []

Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim Reveals Plot Description


By: Kristy Puchko If you’re like me, you need little urging to see anything associated with Guillermo Del Toro, the visionary filmmaker behind Pan’s Labyrinth and Hellboy. As soon as I heard about Del Toro’s upcoming sci-fi epic Pacific Rim, I was on board on principle.

The Hunger Games Sequel Officially Titled The Hunger Games: Catching Fire


By: Eric Eisenberg When it came to creating brand recognition, Summit Entertainment really nailed it with the Twilight franchise. When the sequels were being produced they didn’t simply call them Eclipse or New Moon, but rather extended the title but putting The Twilight Saga: in front of it. Needless to say, it’s been expected that Lionsgate would be doing the same thing with their Hunger Games series. Because many wouldn’t recognize the connection between the first movie and the sequel,Catching Fire, the []

J.J. Abrams Sells Super Secret Project To Paramount


By: Kristy Puchko Writer/director/producer J.J. Abrams is a master of keeping his mystery-centered science fiction productions under wraps. Lost kept viewers guessing right up until its series finale, and both Cloverfield and Super 8 had shrewd marketing campaigns that teased their mysterious monsters without revealing much, driving moviegoers’ anticipation to a fevered pitch. Even now as he is in post-production on his much-anticipated sequel to 2009’s Star Trek, Abrams has been tight-lipped about the film’s plot, villain, and even its title! So, []

ABC Cancels Missing, Pan Am And The River, Renews Body Of Proof – UPDATED


By: Kelly West Hot on the heels of news of numerous series orders for ABC comes the official cancellation of a number of shows, none of which are all that surprising but will likely be disappointing to fans regardless. Earlier, we shared word that ABC had cancelled GCB. Three other freshman dramas failed to make the cut and will not be moving forward. TVLine shared the unfortunate news today that, in addition to GCB‘s cancellation,Missing, The River and Pan Am have also []
