Samuel L. Jackson, Tobey Maguire and Arcade Fire Join Zach Galifianakis For a ‘Between Two Ferns’ Holiday Special
The 'Between Two Ferns' web series is one of the most consistently hilarious on the internet; the only downside being that Zach Galifianakis and crew make so few of them (the last one was back in September with guest Justin Bieber). Well, to make up for their absence, 'Between Two Ferns' is back with a jam-packed holiday special with Tobey Maguire, Samuel L. Jackson and even a musical guest, Arcad

Read the Script For the Planned ‘Justice League’ Movie!
If you're one of the people who think Batfleck is a bad thing (for the record, we disagree), just remember to tell yourself, it could've been worse. Back in 2007, pre-production began on a 'Justice League' movie that would've cast D.J. Cotrona as Superman, rapper Common as Green Lantern and Armie Hammer as Batman, with Christopher Nolan's 'Dark Knight' trilogy never happening. The film never happe

Seth MacFarlane Announces ‘Ted 2′ Release Date
We've been hearing about 'Ted 2' since...well, since the first 'Ted' became a box-office sensation and made $550 million worldwide. But, since then, we've had precious little in the way of actual updates. Sure, everyone - including star Mark Wahlberg and writer/director Seth MacFarlane - want it to happen, but would it actually happen? MacFarlane took to Twitter and let everyone know that it is ha
Arnold Schwarzenegger Confirms ‘Terminator 5,’ Says Shooting Begins in January
Earlier this week, we got word that 'Terminator 5' would set up shop at Paramount Pictures, a new home for the franchise after two lackluster films with Warner Bros.

Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke out today, confirmed his involvement
Marvel Says ‘Iron Man 4′ Will Happen With or Without Robert Downey, Jr.
"Will Robert Downey, Jr. star in 'Iron Man 4?'" has been a very hot question over the past few weeks. Robert Downey, Jr. and his co-stars have been asked ad nauseum about the potential for another sequel and they've all had varying reactions.

‘Man of Steel’ Director Zack Snyder Has Harsh Words For Marvel Movies
Who can forget last summer, when the might Marvel vs. DC war raged on throughout the summer as fanboys feverishly debated whether 'The Avengers' or 'The Dark Knight Rises' was better. We're not sure that was fully settled but the Marvel vs. DC battle lied mostly dormant in the past few months. That is, until now, when 'Man of Steel' director Zack Snyder threw down the gauntlet with some harsh word
