Orlando Bloom (The Hobbit: The Battle Of Five Armies) is officially returning to the Pirates of the Caribbean series as Will Turner!
Shiver me timbers, this means besties Will Turner and Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) will be together again at last.
The casting news was dropped at Disney’s D23 Expo on August 15 in Anaheim, California.
Pirates of The Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales will follow Jack Sparrow as he searches for the trident of Poseidon. Bloom will also join other original cast member Geoffrey Rush, who plays Barbossa for the pirate series fifth film.
Okay, can someone please give Keira Knightley a call now too?

The first step in returning to the wizarding world created by the marvelous J.K Rowling has been made.
Yes Muggles, the Harry Potter spin-off 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' has officially entered production!
While the film is not a sequel, it serves as an extension of the same world in which the Harry Potter book universe exists.
Eddie Redmayne(The Theory of Everything) takes on the lead role as Newt Scamander, a zoologist specializing in the study of magical creatures. Colin Farrell (Horrible Bosses) has also recently signed on to play a wizard in the movie too!
David Yates will also again take director's chair like he did for the last four Harry Potterfilms.
'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' will officially hit theaters November 18, 2016.
Blimey, Harry Potter has turned into Igor -- the infamous assistant to Doctor Frankenstein!
Well not exactly, but Daniel Radcliffe stars alongside James McAvoy (X-Men: Days of Future Past) in a re-telling of Mary Shelley's classic Frankenstein novel.
The re-work tells of Igor (Radcliffe), the assistant to a scientist researching immortality. But when Victor (McAvoy) goes too far, it’s up to Igor to pull him back from his madness.
It’s directed by Paul McGuigan who directs TV series, Sherlock with the script being penned by Max Landis who also wrote the script for popular flick Chronicle.
Victor Frankenstein hits cinemas November 25th!
Watch the trailer after the jump:
Can you believe it's taken this long for the official trailer to make it our way? This has been kickin' around for a while now, whetting our appetites with the irony that Matt Damon also played a "stranded" astronaut in Interstellar (Jessica Chastain was also in that movie!).
Well, here he is, and this time, he's a good guy! Trending on Twitter today is the hashtag #BringJimHome because he seems like a plucky fellow, right? Hell yeah!
The music really helps this one hit home, and it's the perfect movie to end summer. Except it won't be hitting theaters until Oct. 2, allow it to roll in your autumn enjoyment, will you?
Following is the official write up from 20th Century Fox of what appears to be a spectacular time in the theater.
THE MARTIAN | Official Trailer: During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney’s safe return. Based on a best-selling novel, and helmed by master director Ridley Scott, THE MARTIAN features a star studded cast that includes Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Donald Glover.
Hell & Back features Mila Kunis, T.J. Miller, Michael Pena, Susan Surandon, Bob Odenkirk, Danny McBride as various characters on an interesting, and animated, curse-filled romp through Hell.
Brought to you by ShadowMachine, the guys who deliver Robot Chicken (always funny), the cast certainly has the chops to make us laugh, although the trailer doesn't do much more than take advantage of the opportunity to prove it's indeed red-band by tossing f-bombs around.
Maybe it's just me?
The official blurb sent my way follows:
In the outrageous R rated animated comedy from the Animation studio that brought you “Robot Chicken,” “Triptank” and “Bojack Horseman,” three friends embark on a wayward journey into the deepest, darkest depths of hell to rescue one of their own. While navigating their escape, they provoke a slew of misfit demons, a super sexy angel, infamous Greek legends, and the Devil himself; Hell has never been hotter!
Hell & Back will be in theaters Oct. 2.
A bunch of new information was dropped at Disney's D23 Expo in California, and we are jumping with glee over all the new Disney and Marvel info.
See the top 11 highlights from the Expo below and mark your calendars!

2. The Incredibles 2
3. Toy Story 4
5. Doctor Strange
6. Captain America: Civil War
This is right up my ally. I'm a massive horror fan, and when they're a touch on the cheesy side, I love 'em even more.
Well, The Final Girls looks like it takes cues from some of the greatest slightly cheesy horror movies of all time and puts a comical bent onto them, and then infuses them with my other love – television!
How are they doing that? By way of a very talented cast who have made names for themselves on the small screen, including American Horror Story's Taissa Farmiga, The Vampire Diaries' Nina Dobrev, Vikings' Alexander Ludwig, Malin Akerman from the hilarious (but canceled) Trophy Wife, as well as Alia Shawkat, Adam Devine, Angela Trimbur, Chloe Bridges and Thomas Middleditch.
In this film, the girls aren't going to sit around waiting to die, they're fighting back. They know their horror movies, after all. They've seen it all! That's happened before, of course, but there is something about the familiarity of this particular bunch that makes it look even better.
There isn't much about this trailer to complain about, and the film is coming out in theaters and VOD on Oct., 9, so both introverts and extroverts can see it on the same day. Score!
After the fiasco that was True Detective Season 2, we feel like we need to remind everyone why Colin Farrell is so damned brilliant.
We've picked six movies where his performances stand out. Some are funny (OK, a lot are funny) and some are moving, but overall, they seem to showcase a range that surpasses the average actors on the street these days.
If you got a taste of him on TV and want to know more, this list will give you a great place to start.

Talk about a match made in Hollywood heaven!
Blonde bombshells (and new BFFs) Amy Schumer (Trainwreck) and Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games saga) are co-writing a screenplay for a comedy film in which the two will portray sisters. While this isn't by any means Schumer's first foray into the screenwriting biz, this joint effort marks Lawrence's behind-the-scenes debut. Both have proven time and again that they're two hilarious women (both on- and off-screen) so I have high hopes that this upcoming movie will be one for the books!
Lawrence revealed the news on Wednesday morning, during a New York Times interview. The interview was actually about Lawrence's final bow playing heroine Katniss Everdeen in the upcoming The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, but it sounds like she was just so damn excited about her new project that she couldn't help but spill the beans. The Oscar-winning star said that she and Schumer had already completed about 100 pages of the script. Lawrence went on to sing Schumer's praises, speaking highly of their easy-breezy collaborative creative process:
Amy and I were creatively made for each other. We have different flavors. It’s been the most fun experience of my life. We start the day off on the phone, laughing. And then we send each other pages. And we crack up. I’m flying out tomorrow to see her in Chicago. We’ll write a little bit with her sister, Kim, who worked with Amy when she was writing ‘Trainwreck.’ (New York Times)
We don't blame the 25-year-old mega-star for breaking the news so early into the project's development -- we're pretty excited too, JLaw!
Casting news for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2 has revealed that Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious) will be back to voice everyone's favorite tree superhero, Groot.
Yes, we will all get to hear"I am Groot" again!!
The news emerged via a Facebook Q&A with director, James Gunn who accidently dropped the news when a fan asked if Diesel would appear in the third film of the series. Whoops, but at least it kind of confirmed that we will see Groot for both the second and third film.
But does this mean Groot will actually get more lines then "I am Groot" and "We are Groot"?... Only time will tell.
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2 will hit cinemas May 5, 2017!
If Screen Gems is looking to capitalize on the success of a television audience for their new film, Oxford, they couldn't have picked a better on-screen couple than Outlander's Sam Heughan and Supergirl's Melissa Benoist.
Deadline first reported the news of this heaven-sent match. Details about Oxford ensure it will be a flick requiring a fresh packet of tissues be toted along to the theater, and perhaps a strong shoulder to cry upon.
Soon after arriving at Oxford University, an American Rhodes Scholar (Benoist) falls for an arrogant teaching assistant (Heughan) who is quietly fighting terminal cancer. When she discovers the reasons for his behavior, the two connect and make the most of life going forward, traveling the world.
Honestly, it sounds a little cheesy and gives me the Autumn in New York (Winona Ryder and Richard Gere) vibe. However, there is little doubt Heughan can act the hell out of any material he's given and will suck you right into it with him. If he's dying of cancer, we'll feel it.
This is definitely one we want to keep our eyes on as news progresses!!
A new teaser clip for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has emerged.
In the exclusive new clip which was premiered on Instagram, fans are treated to a first look of John Boyega (Finn) wielding a blue lightsaber!
Check out the new clip below:
May the force be with you!
Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters this December.
Wes Craven, prolific horror writer, producer and director passed away at the age of 76 in Los Angeles after a battle with brain cancer.
Mr. Craven is best known for writing the Nightmare on Elm Street series, but his career as a writer began in 1972 with The Last House on the Left, a tingling thriller where two young girls's night out to a concert ends in terrifying torture and murder. He also produced the 2009 remake of The Last House on the Left in 2009.
Wes Craven had an incredible body of work, most notably in the horror genre and with thrillers. This exercise also pulled out a surprise in which he directed Meryl Streep in an Academy Award nominated performance. What were some of his more notable movies?
Take a look at what we've come up with and share your memories of the writer, director and producer in the comments!
1. A Nightmare on Elm Street
2. The Last House on the Left
3. The Hills Have Eyes
4. Swamp Thing
5. Music of the Heart
6. The People Under the Stairs
Here is the official synopsis for Blood Moon:
1887. Colorado. A deserted town lit by the glow of a reddish full moon. A stagecoach full of passengers and an enigmatic gunslinger find themselves prisoners of two outlaws on the run. As the travelers attempt to outwit the outlaws it becomes apparent that a bigger menace lurks outside; a beast that only appears on the night of a blood red moon.
Blood Moon attempts to take two disparate genres – the Western and the werewolf horror flick – and meld them together, ostensibly with the hope that a new setting for a classic scary story will put a fresh spin on things. Instead, the elements of the two never fully cohere, leaving us with a movie that only does half of each thing it's aiming to do.
To quickly sum up the rather formulaic set-up of the film: two dimwitted bank-robbers/murderers, brothers Jeb and Hank Norton, are pursued by Wade, the local lawman, who is begrudgingly accompanied on his quest by a Native American woman, Black Deer. The Norton brothers manage to overtake and hold hostage a group of strangers who were traveling together by coach, and who are now stuck holed up with the bandits in an abandoned saloon.
The strangers in the coach include newlyweds lawman Jake and his wife Sarah, mysterious gunslinger Calhoun, widowed Mrs. Marie Cooper, and baby-faced English newsman Henry. Tensions rise as the group is circled by a mysterious creature – a Skinwalker, who has transformed into a ravenous wolf-man creature.
Blood Moon is certainly ambitious, and it does have its share of fun moments. The film, by UK-based director Jeremy Wooding, features a largely British cast, and many of them do an admirable job of mimicking the recognizable Old West manner of speaking. Shaun Dooley, as the mysterious gunslinger Calhoun, for one, does a believable job with his accent. Others do a... less believable job, to put it mildly. A few seem to altogether give up on any adherence to the distinctive twang by the movie's final third.
Several of the cast also do a very good job with the rather underdeveloped characters they are assigned. I'm thinking in particular of Dooley, again, as well as Anna Skellern as Mrs. Marie Cooper, the ballsy widowed saloon owner who's quick on her feet and brandishes a very tiny pistol. The sporadic romantic tension between the two, while oddly-timed given the life-or-death goings-on occurring around them for the actual entirety of the film, is definitely a high point for me.
The movie is short; at under 90 minutes, it is understandable that many of the rather large cast do not get a chance at organic character development. Organic plot development, too, is often thrown to the wayside in favor of expository, often wooden dialogue.
Most noticeably, at times the ensemble cast seems just slightly too large – unwieldy, if we're being completely honest. Jeb and Hank, as one conjoined example, are nigh-unbearably stupid. Granted, this provided a few moments of light-hearted amusement (such as Marie giving Hank a hard time about his very prominent spitting habit), but by and large they are too annoying to seem like much of a legitimate threat. Several of the stagecoach folks are dispatched of so quickly that I have to wonder why they were even in the movie and identified by name to begin with.
The entire subplot with Wade (Jake-the-Lawman's equally lawful cousin) and Black Deer (the brash, alcoholic Native American woman accompanying him) seems completely off and out of place within the film. Wade (aside from being Jake's cousin) is irrelevant to the rest of the plot, and the fact that he doesn't interact with any of the rest of the principal cast until the last 15 or so minutes of the film certainly doesn't help integrate the two simultaneously occurring stories.
The Wade and Black Deer asides just seem like wastes of time in an already short film. Black Deer is a caricature of a character and the "twist" involving her is oddly shoehorned into the film, with no larger ramifications or follow-up. It's just a throwaway. Wade's hero moment at the end is completely ridiculous and unbelievable. Also, he is a bit of a moron (offhandedly declaring Calhoun dead when the man was barely even knocked out? What was that?)
As I mentioned before, there were certainly some bright moments within the film. The dialogue and character interplay is at its best when a little silly (on purpose). A few legitimate jump-scares, including the guns-ablaze introduction of the Norton brothers to the stagecoach crew, occur early on in the film.
Once the beast is revealed fully on-screen, however, the whole thing kind of falls apart. The Skinwalker costume is patently awful and since the film is played completely straight, the awkwardly terrible costuming for the creature wrecks any legitimate fear that might have built up in the opening half of the film, when the werewolf lurks but doesn't appear on-screen.
The few decently creepy monster moments all occur when the beast is obscured; it is far more effectively scary when it simply can't be seen. The early-on werewolf POV shot, for instance, is pretty cool – angling the camera so we are seeing "through" the monster's eyes, paired with the low growling sound effect, was an interesting, unique choice.
All in all, the film is largely rote and predictable but worth a one-time watch – just don't go into it expecting legitimate scares or unique plot points.
Blood Moon is out on DVD and all digital platforms on September 1, 2015.
Acclaimed award-winning Australian actress Cate Blanchett is reportedly set to star in the upcoming Lucille Ball biopic as the red-headed comedienne herself. Biopic-writing veteran Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, Steve Jobs) is set to pen the screenplay, and Lucille Ball's children Lucy Arnaz Jr. and Desi Arnaz Jr. are reportedly producing the authorized film.
Having won two Oscars already for her portrayals of Katharine Hepburn in the Scorsese Howard Hughes biopic The Aviator and the down-and-out titular socialite of Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine, Blanchett seems like a perfect choice for this role.
Blanchett's acting prowess is without question, and she has already proven her chops in inhabiting the role of a real-life figure of considerable reknown in her earlier turn as Katharine Hepburn. Hopefully Blanchett's camp confirms this news, because it sounds like a winning combination to me!
Blanchett stars alongside Robert Redford in the upcoming biographical political drama Truth (airing as part of this year's upcoming Toronto International Film Festival line-up). She also stars in the romantic drama Carol opposite Rooney Mara, which made its worldwide debut at Cannes in mid-May and is slated for a November 20th stateside release.
Anybody who has ever gotten their hands on the Disney library of classic films will likely recognize Dean Jones. He passed away from complications due to Parkinson's disease on Tuesday at the age of 84.
Jones starred in hits such as The Love Bug, That Darn Cat, and The Shaggy D.A.
In addition to his prolific movie career, Jones appeared in five Broadway shows and numerous television productions, including an adaptation of The Love Bug called Herbie, The Love Bug, as well as Beethoven the TV series.
He appeared in 46 movies during his career, including a role in Clear and Present Danger.
Jones was inducted into the Disney Legends Hall of Fame in 1995.
He's survived by his wife, three children, eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
It's no secret I'm a fan of Colin Farrell.
His best work is done when he has a chance to be both dramatic and comedic in nature, and perhaps a bit quirky. Doesn't that seem like the essence of The Lobster in the...shell?
In the near future, according to the rules of the City, all single people must visit the Hotel where they must find a mate within 45 days or else become an animal. Literally. They're then sent off into the woods to live out there days, although by the trailer, it appears it doesn't always work out that way.
Apparently, Farrell's character will escape his fate into the Woods and fall in love with a Loner.
There is no US release date that I can find, but it's hitting theaters in Europe mid October. You lucky bastards!
Selena Gomez (Spring Breakers) has appeared on-set of the upcoming sequel to popular comedy starring Zac Efron and Seth Rogen, Neighbors.
Selena plays a sorority sister in Neighbors 2 and was captured with her sorority sisters on-set with a shiny red car.
Gomez is also smoking in a pink dress, perhaps she just wants to look good for Efron's character in the film?
