Well we can put the rumors to bed. From the get go, we heard that Paul Feig was rebooting Ghostbuters, much to the chagrin of the classic’s fans. What started to rub said fans the wrong way was when it was announced that it would be an all female reboot.

Today, Feig announced that Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones wild be the foursome to reignite the possible franchise.

“We’re not recreating the old movie, but we want to do just enough fun nods that the fans will go, ‘Oh, okay, they’re acknowledging that the other movie existed,’” Feig recently told Empire about his approach.

“I like to watch parodies, but I don’t want to do them because they’re too referential. Comedy that’s too referential has such a short shelf life, whereas comedy that’s based around characters will be relatable 2000 years from now because people won’t change that much.”

Live-Action remakes are all the rage these days.

Emma Watson will be leading Disney’s next live spin on a classic, as she will be fitted for a dress as Belle in Beauty and the Beast. The film will be directed by Bill Condon (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and Part 2) and is set to start filming this year.

Since its release in 1991, the animated Beauty and the Beast has grossed more than $145 million domestically in various releases, not accounting for inflation. The title also hit Broadway in 1994.

Tom Hardy Exits Suicide Squad, Gyllenhaal Eyed to Replace

Well that didn’t take long. Nor should it surprise anyone.

Tom Hardy, who was scheduled to play Rick Flagg in the upcoming Suicide Squad opposite Margot Robbie, Will Smith, Cara Delevingne, Viola Davis, Jai Cortney, and Jared Leto, has dropped out.

According to THR, Hardy has left the film with no explanation given. Some speculation suggests filming for The Revenant, also starring Leonardo DiCaprio, and directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu, is still shooting so Hardy doesn’t want to jump from project to project so quickly. On top of that, he would still have to do publicity for Mad Max: Fury Road which hits theaters in May. Suicide Squad is set to start shooting in April.

87th Academy Award Nominations

The Oscars are a little over a month away, and the nominations are finally here.

As is the case every year, there were snubs, surprises, and obvious choices. But overall, these nominations go to show you what I have said for months…2014 was the weakest year for film in recent memory.

Birdman and The Grand Budapest Hotel led the nominations with nine a piece, while The Imitation Game got eight and Boyhood and American Sniper each garnered six nods.

ATC’s best film of 2014, Whiplash got five nominations, while Selma only received two noms and The LEGO Movie got one of the biggest snubs.

Rosemund Pike getting nominated for Best Actress was nice to see after she got nothing at the Golden Globes, while Jake Gyllenhaal not getting nominated for Nightcrawler was an embarrassment to the voters of the Academy.

American Sniper is getting too much credit for being such a wildly mediocre film, I do not understand all the love it is getting.

Lets get to the nominations:

Edward Norton, Online Poker, and the Status of Rounders 2

It’s been quite a while since I wrote about the sequel to one of my favorite movies of all time, Rounders. Back then (December ’13), it was made clear that the first film’s stars, Edward Norton and Matt Damon, were on board to take part in the followup. Not only that, but apparently Robert De Niro was slated to take on the role of the villain.

It’s safe to say that there was much to be excited about, and that’s putting it lightly.

However, in the ensuing months, there was little to no information released regarding the sequel. Sure, there’s the IMDB page that states the film is in development,but that’s about all that’s come up. Until last November, when Norton made some comments about the film in a surprisingly not-well-covered interview on  The Late Show with David Letterman.

He was actually on the show to promote his latest role in the film Birdman, but the topic of Rounders 2 was apparently unavoidable.

During the National Championship game, Marvel released the second trailer for the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron film.

Hitting theaters in May, expect marketing for the film to start ramping up.

The new trailer features more footage, and continues to emphasize the very ominous tone that James Spader’s Ultron seems to hold over the film.

Joss Whedon’s follow up to The Avengers, shows Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.),  Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Thor, (Chris Hemsworth), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), teaming up again to battle an unstoppable robot.
