Jennifer Lawrence's iconic character from the 'Hunger Games' series will also appear at Madame Tussauds in New York and Hollywood
Saturday Night Live aired its final episode of 2014 last night, with Amy Adams hosting and One Direction as the musical guest. One of the highlights of last night's episode was during the cold open, where none other than Dr. Evil (Mike Myers) interrupted the sketch to offer his thoughts on the Sony hack, North Korea's involvement and Sony's cancellation of The Interview's release. As you can tell from the studio audience's applause, Dr. Evil's presence was quite welcomed last night.
Mike Myers starred as Dr. Evil in the hit comedy trilogy Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997), Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999) and Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002). Austin Powers 4 had been in development for several years, and we last heard in 2011 that Mike Myers had agreed to come back as both Austin Powers, but we haven't heard anything else about the project's progress.
It's possible that this brief appearance could garner enough buzz to get Austin Powers 4 off the ground, but we're not sure if a script is even ready, or if a director is attached. Jay Roach directed all three Austin Powers movies, but it isn't clear if he would come back to the helm. Would you like to see Dr. Evil back on the big screen? Check out the video, and chime in with your thoughts below.
Saturday Night Live episode 40.10, "Amy Adams/One Direction"
The Interview comes to theaters in 2015 and stars James Franco, Seth Rogen, Randall Park, Lizzy Caplan, Diana Bang, Tommy Chang, Charles Chun, Dominique Lalonde. The film is directed by Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen.
Warner Bros. has released two new posters for their upcoming thriller Focus, featuring stars Will Smith and Margot Robbie, with a new trailer slated to debut tomorrow. Will Smith stars as Nicky, a seasoned master of misdirection who becomes romantically involved with novice con artist Jess (Margot Robbie). As he's teaching her the tricks of the trade, she gets too close for comfort and he abruptly breaks it off. Three years later, the former flame-now an accomplished femme fatale-shows up in Buenos Aires in the middle of the high stakes race car circuit.
In the midst of Nicky's latest, very dangerous scheme, she throws his plans for a loop... and the consummate con man off his game. Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (Crazy Stupid Love) direct from their own screenplay, with Rodrigo Santoro and Gerald McRaney co-starring. The first trailer was released back in October, just after the first photos debuted.
Take a look at the one-sheets below, and be sure to check back tomorrow for the new trailer for Focus, arriving in theaters February 27, 2015. With Will Smith's box office clout, and Margot Robbie on the rise after her turn in The Wolf of Wall Street, it remains to be seen how well Focus will face at the box office.

Last week, Hot Toys debuted a first look at their Iron Man figure from Avengers: Age of Ultron, showing Tony Stark in his Mark XLIII Armor. The figure is incredibly detailed, with the photos giving us a pretty great idea of what the Mark 43 suit will look like on the big screen. Now, Hot Toys has debuted more from their Avengers 2 lineup, offering a sneak peek at Hawkeye, Captain America, Black Widow and Thor in their new costumes. We also get a more detailed look at Hulkbuster and Thanos.
Hot Toys debuted the new lineup of figure at the Toy Soul 2014 Expo this weekend. And as you can see in the tweets below, these toys bring a great idea of what we can expect to see from these main characters in 2015. We also get a look at the Hulk, who pretty much looks exactly like he did in Marvel's The Avengers.
We don't get to see some of the newer characters, like Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. Most disappointing to fans is the absence of Vision. But Hot Toys did debut a life-size Hulkbuster, which you can see in the photos below. That has to make up for it, right? The toy images of Hulkbuster offer our best look yet, and are incredibly detailed. It should be noted that the Iron Man figure shown here is quite different from the one seen in the images from last week.
