Tarantino's Django Unchained could be amazing... Supposedly, it'd be Will Smith in the lead as well.

Also, I got advanced screening passes for Super 8 on Tuesday and I am incredibly hyped.

Green Lantern looks like it could go either way. I still think they should have used Taye Diggs.

I can't imagine Rock of Ages being any good.

They've already ruined Dumb and Dumber with that prequel, so I'm interested to see how a proper sequel would turn out.

Total Recall should be awesome.

There are two Snow White movies, which is going to be annoying. I'm interested in both however.

I've enjoyed Noah Baumbach's films, would be cool to see Jesse Eisenberg back on screen to one of his films.

As for the Tarantino rumors... that's just fantastic. DiCaprio has villain is something I have to see, and in a Tarantino film no less.

05) Here are some character posters for the final installment of Harry Potter.
Neville is surprisingly handsome now.

06) First look at Russell Brand and Alec Baldwin in Rock of Ages.
Still really skeptical.

08) Awesome rumor even outside of the fact that ANY rumor about an upcoming Tarantino project is awesome, DiCaprio could play a villain.
Would be really, really cool. And might FINALLY get Leo the Oscar.

09) The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo gets an international poster. (NSFW)
That's hot.

21) Suzanne Collins trilogy The Hunger Games is looking to be split into 4 movies by Lionsgate films.
Harry Potter has taught everyone how to milk out a series, man, hah.

26) John Cho joins Total Recall. So far the cast is Collin Farrel as Douglas Quaid (played by Arnold originally) Bryan Cranston, Bill Nighy, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel. Ethan Hawke is also said to appear in a cameo role.
Cast is actually looking good. Love John Cho. Side note: can't wait for Star Trek 2 already.

Television

01) Jane Lynch will host this year’s Emmys. The show will air on Sunday, September 18.
Might be awesome. Can't wait for NPH to host the Tonys though!

I hope they split Catching Fire into two movies, and not Mockingjay. Mockingjay doesn't have enough 'meat' to be split.
Or just make a prequel that covers the first rebellion/The Dark Days. That would be even better.
