Meet Peter Parker’s parents. Campbell Scott and Julianne Nicholson will play Spidey’s moms and pops in Sony’s reboot.
I don’t know why the fate of Two Face at the end of The Dark Knight was ever up for debate. Probably because it is a Christopher Nolan movie and people are all about obsessing over the ends of his films.
Kate Winslet is saying things about her ex-husband’s affairs. The British actress told The Daily Mail that she is looking to move her children back to London as Sam Mendes, her former hubby, directs the newest Bond film. Shooting could begin as early as the end of next year.
If you were worried that Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides would be your last chance to see Johnny Depp wear a floppy hat and talk like a drunken stroke victim, don’t fret. You’ll have at least two more chances.
Since appearing as a hot hippie on “Mad Men,” Abigail Spencer’s career has been picking up steam. With Cowboys & Aliens under her giant Western belt buckle, she’s ready to join McG’s This Means War.
Good news for people who like serial killers and ridiculous plots (I kid because I love). Showtime has renewed “Dexter” for its sixth season.

Outspoken comedian Neil Hamburger, a Tim & Eric favorite, has taken it upon himself to launch an anti-Yogi Bear tirade on his @neil_hamburger Twitter account. Neil doesn’t mince words in his explicit bursts of disgust over the live action/animated hybrid featuring Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake as the voices of Yogi and Boo Boo, respectively.
After weeks of painstaking research, I’ve come up with this list of seven probable victims of the “Hollywood Star Whackers.” They are the key to figuring out the “who” and “why”…and god willing, maybe “how much” and “how many.”
Our nerd friends over at GameFront put together an impressive rant on why Mark Wahlberg should not have been given the lead role in David O. Russell’s adaptation of the PS3 blockbuster game, Uncharted.
If I had a dime for every project that Steve Carell has sold I’d have enough dimes to put into a sock and beat my mailman. Speaking of mailmen, Steve Carell has sold a post office comedy to NBC.
What do you get when the world’s most reclusive author and a notoriously paranoid Hollywood filmmaking sensation meet somewhere in the smoke-filled depths of creative abstraction and start comparing notes? Presumably, you get a pretty damn good movie.
Yesterday, several of Quentin Tarantino’s friends gathered in New York for lunch to roast the director in only a way that the Friars Club can. They all gave Tarantino sh*t about his face, cadence, use of language, and supposed foot fetish.
Future Oscar host James Franco and guy who dresses embarrassingly at the Oscars Ben Stiller are set to join Noah Baumbach’s next project. Taste the angst!!
Batman has Robin. Siegfried has Roy. And The Lone Ranger has Tonto. So with Johnny Depp already cast as Tonto in Gore Verbinksi’s Lone Ranger, who does the actor feel would best complete the pair?
Dani Pudi plays the character on “Community” who provides most of the show’s self-referential meta humor. So it makes sense that Abed is responsible for a stop-motion animated episode in the tradition of the Rankin Bass specials.
With zombies being so hot right now, it’s likely Ruben Fleischer will jump on Zombieland 2 after he finishes up 30 Minutes Or Less. But not if Warner Bros has their druthers.

Now there are reports that Joss Whedon was offered the chance to helm the Buffy The Vampire Slayer remake himself, but turned it down. I don’t even know who to believe anymore, man.

Frank Darabont has liquidated the entire writing staff of “The Walking Dead” and plans on utilizing freelancers for the show’s second season.
Nic Cage gets weird with us in discussing Season of the Witch, Drive Angry, wigs, dressing as a bear, and licking the audience. On second thought, pretty standard Cage stuff.

Yee-haw, lil’ doggies! A herd a posters have hit the Inernetz over the past couple-a days so we brought in Whiplash to round ‘em all up fer yas. I think you’lls all agrees that Photoshop does not a good one-sheet make, er somethin’.
Harry Potter fans are having a strange reaction to the trailer for Cowboys & Aliens. The title Cowboys & Aliens is causing viewers to break out into laughter, similar to the way that the name M. Night Shyamalan causes audiences to break out into “Awww, what dah fuh’s?!?”
While watching two drugged-out teens lick their way to the bottom of the porn industry is fun, watching two “legitimate” actresses getting it on for art’s sake has its own perverse charm.
The Fighter is the story of how boxer Irish Mickey Ward overcame his family problems to be a champion. The drama could have started all over again for the filmmakers when they got the Ward family involved with the story.
