02) Greenlight for The Hobbit expected soon.
- It's also rumored to be shot in 3D.
- This also needs clarification, as of right now, Peter Jackson is NOT confirmed to direct, just rumored to be.

03) I think this is awesome and a great idea, Vaughn plans to reshoot and recreate the opening scene from X-Men to put in his X-Men First Class.

04) Emma Stone has been allegedly offered the role of Mary Jane Watson for the newest Spider-Man installment.
- She, in fact, will star in the film, but as Gwen Stacey NOT Mary Jane.

05) Behold, the full trailer for True Grit.

06) Check out these plot details for The Hangover 2, what do you think?

07) Huge news, Zack Snyder has been chosen to direct the newest Superman film.

- General Zod will be the central villain.

08) Hatchet II pulled from US & Canadian theaters.

09) Here are some new photos from Thor.

10) Watch an exclusive deleted scene from Let Me In.

11) Tomas Alfredson (of Let the Right One In fame) will tackle his first English-language film, Larklight.

12) Haha, the third Transformers movie is reportedly named “The Dark of the Moon."

13) Vladimir Mashkov joins the cast of Mission Impossible 4.

14) Kate Beckinsale just can not stay away from Underworld. She’ll be in number 4

15) Here’s some details on the Wachowski’s new film Cobalt Neural 9.
As was previously reported, the film takes place in the near future and deals with a homosexual relationship between a U.S. soldier and an Iraqi. Said to be shot in a Cinéma vérité style, Vulture suggests that much of the film is told through artificial news reports viewed from a narrative point a hundred years in the future. The American character is Butch, a marine who, after falling in love with the Iraqi character, conspires with him to assassinate President George W. Bush. The framework of the film, then, falls in both the future and the recent past, though apparently within an altered history.

16) John Goodman has joined Kevin Smith’s latest movie Red State which is reportedly working with a budget of around 4 million.

17) Tim Burton’s stop motion Frankenweenie will be voiced by…. Winona Ryder, Martin Landau, Martin Short and Catherine O’Hara.
