Hidden atop a secret mountain stronghold lies the League of Shadows and its fearless leader, Ra's al Ghul. Together with his equally dangerous daughter Talia, he oversees a trained army of assassins with plans for global domination. But an uprising from within the league now threatens to shift the balance of power and sends Talia and her young son, Damian, fleeing to Gotham City. With assassins on their trail, Talia seeks the protection of Batman, who, unbeknownst to him, is the boy's father. With his son in tow, Batman wages war against the villain Deathstroke and the League of Shadows, all while teaching his headstrong boy that one can't fight crime by becoming a criminal. With help from Gotham's finest, including Commissioner Gordon and Nightwing, Batman will soon discover that his son and most trusted ally are one and the same! Son of Batman arrives May 6, and to celebrate we have a new clip. Damian shows off his keen assassin skills by taking a samurais sword to the Wayne Estate garden, causing grief for both Alfred and his father.

The comic, which was illustrated by Leinil Francis Yu, ran for seven issues between 2010 and 2012, centering on a 12-year-old boy named Simon Pooni, who was a popular athlete before he becomes stricken with multiple sclerosis. He is visited by an alien monkey and granted one wish, which he uses to become his favorite superhero, a Superman-esque character dubbed Superior. As Simon begins to enjoy the spoils of his new life, he soon realizes that this monkey is actually from hell, and he must either sell his soul to remain this powerful hero, or return to to his crippled body.
The studio is currently searching for a writer to adapt the comic book, with Matt Reilly overseeing the project.

Writer-director Paul Haggis returns to his indie roots with his latest drama Third Person, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year and was acquired by Sony Pictures Classics in November. Today, we have the first footage in the form of an international trailer, featuring stars James Franco, Olivia Wilde, Mila Kunis, Liam Neeson, Maria Bello, Kim Basinger, Adrien Brody and Moran Atias. This story follows three separate couples in Paris, Rome and New York who are all connected in subtle ways. Take a look at this first footage, and stay tuned to find out when this indie drama will hit theaters.
Third Person wends its way through three cities and three tales. The various stories, situated in Paris, Rome, and New York, are, at first glance, all separate, but Haggis effortlessly makes connections among them as the film unwinds, concentrating on three men and their romantic entanglements. Gradually, each one of these stories unveils its secrets, testifying to the whims and complexities of life. Surfaces are deceptive in the Haggis universe, but as each story is explored we discover untold pleasures and pains. Life is never easy: it can be deceptive, inhabited by anger and jealousy, but it can also be surprisingly joyous.
The good guys are back in action this summer with The Expendables 3. Lionsgate has released the first official cast photo, which reunites old school mercenaries Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews and Randy Couture with newcomer Wesley Snipes and director Patrick Hughes.
In The Expendables 3, Barney (Sylvester Stallone), Christmas (Jason Statham) and the rest of the team comes face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill...Or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables -- but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables' most personal battle yet.
The Expendables 3 comes to theaters August 15th, 2014 and stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Antonio Banderas, Wesley Snipes, Dolph Lundgren, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford. The film is directed by Patrick Hughes.
The Amazing Spider-Man spin-off The Sinister Six is quickly building speed, with many fans excited to see this classic line-up of villains on the big screen. But even though The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is working hard to bring these guys together, which is a thread that will be carried over into The Amazing Spider-Man 3, don't expect to see the original comic book characters in the final movie.
Producers Matthew Tolmach and Avi Arad are promising the best 6 villains the Spider-Man universe has to offer, which means the debut incarnation of this bad guy gang may be changed or altered for the big screen. Tolmach explains,
"Nothing is sacred. I mean it's going to be the best Six that you can imagine, but it's going to make sense in the world that we're building."
With The Cabin in the Woods' Drew Goddard in negotiations to direct, we can expect some horror elements to seep into the narrative. Which means we might see Venom as part of this team, since he's set to get his own spin-off as well. The original gang of Spider-Man hating baddies consists of Doctor Octopus, Vulture, Electro, Kraven the Hunter, Mysterio and Sandman. While Electro is the main villain in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it also sets up the presence of Vulture and Doctor Octopus. All three are sure things for The Sinister Six. But Kraven, Mysterio and Sandman are questionable.
Avi Arad went onto explain their intent behind building the screenplay,
"When you translate comic to film the word 'classic' means the first fifty issues. Because after that we all made changes; changes that had to do with science fiction turning into science. I think just the need to move this world forward. So, of course we'll make adaptations about these guys and what was their motivations because many of them have multiple motivations. It depends, is it ultimate Spider-Man? Is it Spider-Man? Is it some three-piece issue that takes them to space? We have a bigger responsibility to represent the character of the villain as it was conceived, because that way it will survive the test of time."
"All the rest... that's a movie. What an opportunity to make-- can you imagine seeing Paul Giamatti in a leather suit? I think they would have killed us. They gave us a hard time with the Lizard."
With Goblin and Rhino in the mix for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, its unsure how much they will be utilized. We know Dane DeHaan and Paul Giamatti are returning for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 in some capacity, but will they ultimately join this line-up of ultimate super villains? The Daily Bugle viral has gone out of its way to set up Shocker, so he's definitely a possibility. And we can't overlook The Amazing Spider-Man's Lizard coming back into the fold, which has long been promised.
Its unlikely that we'll see some of the more obscure villains like the giant alien reptilian humanoid Gog or shape-shifting Chameleon. But what about females? Scorpia, a psychotic female version of Scorpion, was once a member. And we can't forget about Janice Lincoln, aka The Beetle. But these are some of the most unknown characters in the comic books. Its doubtful they will be brought into the fold.
After months of speculation, Man of Steel composer Hans Zimmer has confirmed that he will return to provide the score for its sequel, Batman Vs. Superman. Here's what he had to say in a recent interview with Digital Spy, where he revealed that he will start crafting music for the DC Comics superhero follow-up once he finishes work on Christopher Nolan's Interstellar.
"We've already had a couple of chats, and once I finish the movie that I shall not talk about I will probably head over to where Zack (Snyder) is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas."
Back in September, the composer revealed that he was undecided about taking on this sequel, since he will have to come up with a new Batman theme, after working on Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy. He explained that composing an original theme for Ben Affleck's Dark Knight will be his biggest challenge yet.
"That's my problem, that's my dilemma. I don't want to betray, if that's the right word, The Dark Knight movies. That was Christian (Bale), it was Christian's role. It's not just that it was nine years of our lives, so you want to stay honest and honorable to that period. So it's really about, 'Is there something else I can find that I haven't tapped into?' Which I don't know until I sit down with Zack."
Hans Zimmer said back in October that director Zack Snyder hadn't asked him to come back yet, after they worked together on Man of Steel, but that has all changed now, with the composer on board. Are you excited that Hans Zimmer is coming back for this superhero follow-up? Or would you rather see another composer tackle this project? Chime in with your thoughts below.
Batman Vs. Superman comes to theaters May 6th, 2016 and stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons. The film is directed by Zack Snyder.

"You have Jessica Chastain on one end and Angelina Jolie on the other and your publicist is on all fours sewing up your dress," Greer recalls of her disastrous first time attending the Academy Awards, among other noteworthy style moments, on #pretapodcasts.

If you read our report on 20th Century Fox’s presentation from this year’s CinemaCon a few weeks ago, you may have seen us mention the clip the studio showed from X-Men: Days Of Future Past. A cut-down version of the clip is now online via MTV.
Taken from the film’s opening, the scene is set in the dark alternate future where mutants have been hunted into near extinction by the lethal Sentinel robots unleashed by Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage). But in their determination to wipe out mutant kind, the robotic warriors have also laid waste to many human cities as their war spread across the globe. We catch up with some of the remaining mutants as they come under attack from the latest wave of the living machines. It does not go well for our heroes…
With the release date now a little over a month away, 20th Century Fox is acutely aware that there is a lot of narrative ground to cover in a story that spans the years between 1973 and the dark future world we glimpse above. To help fill in some of the events in between and show how the situation between mutants and mankind soured so badly, there is a handy timeline guide chronicling 25 specific moments.
Those include the end of X-Men: First Class in 1962, where Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and the rest ended up part of the Cuban Missile Crisis. From there, we leap into events that span a decade between that and 1973, where we pick up the story of the younger Charles Xavier (James McAvoy). There’s also mention of the plotline, hinted at in a previous viral site, that Magneto was implicated in the assassination of John F. Kennedy and imprisoned.
The rest we shall leave you to see for yourself, but it’s a fun little blend of real-life events and X-Men related news, even including the 'real' reason for the Mad Cow disease outbreak. From the looks of it, the timeline even tries to squeeze in events from other X-movies.
With Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Ellen Page, Daniel Cudmore, Halle Berry, Shawn Ashmore and others back, including most of the First Class cast, Days Of Future Past is out on May 22.

Dr. Will Caster is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him.
However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed-to be a participant in his own transcendence. For his wife Evelyn and best friend Max Waters, both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can...but if they should.
Their worst fears are realized as Will's thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power, to what end is unknown. The only thing that is becoming terrifyingly clear is there may be no way to stop him.
