You thought the news that we heard on TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2012, when Disney purchased LucasFilms was the end of the conversation. Oh no. The talk about the upcoming film will never end until it hits theaters in 2015.

We uncovered a part 2 to the interview with George Lucas and LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy.

In the interview Kathleen Kennedy and George Lucas discuss the next steps in making new Star Wars movies, including selecting a director and what Lucas' role will be.

McG Lives In A Magic Castle

McG has come aboard to direct Radar Pictures' film based on the Magic Castle, the famed private magic club in Hollywood.

The script is being written by Andrew Barrer and Gabe Ferrari; details of the story are being kept under wraps. The project is set up at 20th Century Fox, and Radar's Ted Field and Mike Weber are producing.

Several notable venues have been the subject of Hollywood films. Disney turned its Haunted Mansion theme park ride into a 2003 family-oriented comedy thriller starring Eddie Murphy, while Fox has had much more success with its Ben Stiller franchise Night at the Museum, which began with the 2006 film set at the American Museum of Natural History.

The Magic Castle sits at 7001 W. Franklin Ave., just west of Highland Avenue, near Grauman's Chinese Theatre and the Dolby Theatre, home of the Academy Awards. The venue was turned into a private magic club in 1963 and is not open to the public (guests must be invited by a member). Nightly shows are put on at t…

Mark Wahlberg Is In Transformers 4

Never one to turn away a good chance for sneaky publicity, or indeed to lie to journalists’ faces when asked about plot developments on his upcoming films (*cough* Megatron in Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen *cough*), Michael Bay has now brought the saga of the will-he-won’t-he Mark Wahlberg in Transformers 4 to a close with a resounding, er, yes.

After shooting down rumors and then this week making references to “internet chatter” affecting him and “his writer” (Ehren Kruger), Bay revealed on his website that he intends to continue the bromance hatched working with Wahlberg on bodybuilding action comedy Pain And Gain.

“Mark is awesome. We had a blast working on Pain And Gain and I’m so fired up to be back working with him. An actor of his calibre is the perfect guy to re-invigorate the franchise and carry on the Transformers’ legacy,” said Bay. So we’ll see the Ted star face down the Decepticons and help out Optimus Prime. Or whatever he ends up doing.

The most recent plot talk,…

Tom Cruise In All You Need Is Kill Picture

Doug Liman has directed Vince Vaughn doing up his flies at the side of the road in Swingers and Matt Damon tearing up Paris in a conked out mini in The Bourne Identity, but there's nothing in his back catalogue quite like this new All You Need Is Kill pic: Tom Cruise running away from a massive explosion in a mech suit.

For those not in the know, All You Need Is Kill is based on the critically-acclaimed novel of the same name by Japanese sci-fi author Hiroshi Sakurazaka, which sees its hero Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) forced to fight (and die) over and over again as contact with alien invaders (known as 'Mimics') traps him in a hellish time loop.

This may strike some as being rather similar to the likes of Groundhog Day and Source Code (except, you know, with aliens), but as you can see from the astonishing pic above, there's a whole lot of sci-fi action to look forward to as well as the brain-bending time-wimey-ness.

On hand to help Cage is Special Forces operative R…

Star Wars: Episode VII To Recruit Toy Story 3 Scribe?

The shocking and downright exhilarating news of Disney purchasing Lucasfilm and announcing new Star Wars adventures on the way did not come as a surprise to everyone. Within the two companies, negotiations had been going on for months. And George Lucas even said that he’d written outlines for at least three more films. Now we seemingly know who has turned them into a treatment for Star Wars: Episode VII and beyond… Toy Story 3’sMichael Arndt.

Vulture, which is currently in the market for a place to unload many Bothan spy bodies, brings word that Arndt had quietly been hired to start cranking out the treatment long before the shockwave October 30 announcement.

No official nod to the fact has been given, but Arndt is most certainly a good call. After winning an Oscar for Little Miss Sunshine, he was recruited by Disney / Pixar to write the third Toy Story film and delivered something truly special. He’s also been at work on other projects, including the still untitled Pixar mind project…

James Bond Franchise Almost Died

On April 19, 2010, James Bond effectively died. After almost a year and a half of trying to get a new 007 film made while its parent studio, MGM, was spiraling toward bankruptcy, producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson finally pulled the plug.

That's when the London-based half-siblings issued a statement: "Due to the continuing uncertainty surrounding the future of MGM and the failure to close a sale of the studio, we have suspended development of Bond 23 indefinitely. We do not know when development will resume."

Today, the 23rd James Bond film, Skyfall, has opened to record numbers at the European box office and is drawing rave reviews from critics. It earned $287 million in its first 10 days, boding well for the picture's Nov. 9 debut in the U.S. Its success will add significantly not only to the franchise's value (which some estimate as high as $1.2 billion), but also to that of MGM, which co-owns Bond with Broccoli and Wilson and is expected to lau…

Relive The Magic Of Jurassic Park In 3D Trailer

On April 5, 2013 relive the magic that is Jurassic Park in 3D. We got our hands on the trailer for the release of the film.

Billionaire John Hammond, CEO of InGen, has created Jurassic Park: a theme park populated with dinosaurs cloned from the DNA extracted from insects preserved in prehistoric amber.

Hammond's investors, represented by their lawyer Donald Gennaro, demand that experts visit the park and certify that it's safe. Gennaro invites Dr. Ian Malcolm, a mathematician, while Hammond invites paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant and paleobotanist Dr. Ellie Sattler. They are joined on the island by Hammond's grandchildren, Tim and Lex Murphy. The group sets off to explore the park while Hammond observes his guests along with Head Technician Ray Arnold and game warden Robert Muldoon.

With a storm heading in, everyone returns to their vehicles except for Sattler. Jurassic Park's head computer programmer, Dennis Nedry, is secretly in the employ of one of InGen's corpor…

Dwayne Johnson Will Be Hercules

Man-mountain, gymspiration, walking charm factory and friend to set-visiting journalists Dwayne Johnson was linked back in February with a seemingly perfect role: Hercules. Now, after a few months of negotiation and figuring out his hectic schedule, Johnson has locked in the lead.

Brett Ratner will direct the film, which is now being co-produced by Paramount and MGM. The plot will be based on Radical Studios’ Hercules: The Thracian Wars, created by Steve Moore.

The story sees the Thracian king* summon Herc and six battle-weary pals, tasking them with getting his army into fighting shape. Lured by the promise of gold and glory, Hercules readily agrees, but soon comes to realise how far he’s fallen from grace and what he might need to do to find some redemption.

Ryan Condal adapted the script, which has since seen work from Evan Spiliotopoulos. Once the rest of the cast is set, Ratner plans to begin filming early next year.

2013 will be busy for Johnson, at least in terms of film relea…

Gemma Arterton Joins Monty Python Project “Absolutely Anything

Dominic Cooper Has The Need For Speed

Having secured the services of Aaron Paul and, just a few days ago, Imogen Poots, Scott Waugh and the Need For Speed team are keeping the pedal to the metal in terms of casting. Now they have Dominic Cooper negotiating to take the third lead role.

The eventual movie will inherit the spirit of the Electronic Arts video game franchise, but George and John Gatins’ script isn’t based on any one of the titles.

Instead, it’ll follow an underground race driver (Paul) who has diversified and also runs a garage that modifies fancy cars to boost their power. But when his friend is murdered during a race, he’s framed for the crime and sent to prison. Upon his release, he swears revenge on those who saw him put away and who were truly responsible for his pal’s death. As for Cooper, he's set to play Dino, a former NASCAR driver who also dabbles in modifying supercars for wealthy clients. Poots, meanwhile, is an exotic car dealer who works with them both.

Top Gun 3D Flying Into Theaters

Are you feeling the need for speed ... in 3-D?

"Top Gun," the 1986 action blockbuster that inspired a surge of Navy enlistments and made everyone feel okay about Reagan-era militarism, may be flying high again — and this time in three dimensions, according to The New York Times.

Before his suicide on Aug. 19, director Tony Scott had worked with Paramount and Legend3D on the 3-D conversion of his first major Hollywood hit in the hopes that a newfangled re-release might stir up interest for "Top Gun 2," a sequel for which Scott had been location scouting with Tom Cruise just days before his death.

All plans for "Top Gun 2" have been scrapped, though a 3-D release of the original film could be seen as a tribute to a filmmaker whose death remains shrouded in mystery for fans, friends and associates alike.

The 3-D release of "Titanic" certainly went well last year, scoring $342 million in worldwide box office (the conversion cost only $18 million). …

Jared Leto Returns To Acting In Dallas Buyer’s Club

Actor and 30 Seconds to Mars frontman Jared Leto is stepping before the cameras for the first time in three years for The Dallas Buyer’s Club, joining Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner in the long-in-the-works AIDS drama.

Canadian director Jean-Marc Vallee (The Young Victoria) is helming the project, which will begin shooting next week in New Orleans.

Inspired by real events, the story centers on Ron Woodroof (McConaughey), a Texas electrician diagnosed with AIDS and given six months to live, who began smuggling alternative drugs into the U.S. to help himself and other AIDS patients. He added years to his life but rushed headfirst into a collision course with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which was bent on keeping the drugs out of the country.

In a potentially standout role, Leto would play a flamboyant cross-dresser with HIV who helps Woodroof. At one point, Gael Garcia Bernal circled the role but never reached the dealmaking stage.

Rumor. Han Solo To Return to Episode 7

You didn't need to be a prescient Jedi master to predict the minute Disney and Lucasfilm made last week’s big, exciting announcement that the Star Wars galaxy would return to our screens, the rumors about who might be involved would start flying. And fly they have, with word on both Harrison Ford possibly being up for a return to Han Solo’s trousers and our first whisper-of-a-rumor about a director candidate.

Entertainment Weekly’s new hire, Geoff Boucher (formerly of the LA Times) has a source saying that Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher are all “upbeat” about returning to the franchise that helped launch their careers. While we naturally have to file this one in the soon-to-be-bulging New Star Wars Rumor File, it’s a hopeful sign that we really will see the three original leads passing the torch – or the lightsaber, or the blaster – to new characters.

Ford, who has never been the most vocal fan of Star Wars’ scripts, also thought Han should have died in Return Of The Jedi to…

MADAGASCAR 3 Blu-Ray Review. Best Of The Three

MADAGASCAR 3: EUROPE’S MOST WANTED Blu-Ray Review By: MattInRC
MADAGASCAR 3: EUROPE’S MOST WANTED is good family fun that's still not as good as it should, but shines in an excellent Blu-ray release.

There's always something wonderfully satisfying about animals that talk. Perhaps this comes from my childhood, when Winnie the Pooh kept me company, or maybe it's the connection we have with our pets that makes us want for them to carry on conversations with us. Disney has made a fortune pulling at these particular heartstrings, bending reality just enough to make us think that our childhood friends, or - in the case of Madagascar - zoo animals could exist in the same world as ours, carrying on complex relationships while sometimes engaging in assorted silly humor for our benefit. Madagascar has enjoyed a particularly successful run, even though it's the weakest of Dreamworks' franchises; its achilles heel lies rooted in both its voice actors, as well as its somewhat …
