Though the major roles in the reboot of 'Fantastic Four' have been filled, the movie must do some world-building to set up the film's already dated sequel.

‘Explorers’ is Getting Remade
Too often Hollywood wants to remake perfect movies. When they redo films like 'Halloween' or 'Pyscho' the quality level has virtually only one place to go.

‘Avatar’ Sequels Confirm the Return of Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana
With so much attention focused on 2015, and the explosion of tentpole releases that are coming, it's worth noting that the biggest sequel of them all isn't due until the year after.

Kate Upton is Being Courted for the ‘Entourage’ Movie

‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ Might Send ‘Jack Ryan’ into 2014
Martin Scorsese's 'The Wolf of Wall Street,' which stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey and Jonah Hill, was looking to be one of the most interesting films of 2013. But as of right now, it's not finished, in all likelihood will not be ready for its originally announced November 15 release date, and may take 'Jack Ryan''s release date and bump that film into 2014.
