Ugh, can't wait to watch The Master.
Also, I think Matthew McConaughey is under-appreciated as an actor.
And I can't wait for Best Week Ever to come back!

Any news about Kick-Ass 2 is awesome, but Donald Faison as Dr. Gravity could be awesome!
Also Joss Whedon making a live-action Marvel television series will be awesome, no matter what. Although it will inevitably get cancelled sadly.

"03) Finally an update on the adaptation of The Dark Tower, Russell Crowe is in the mix to play the gunslinger."

This could be cool.

"06) The Raging Bull sequel presses forward despite a lawsuit, now titled The Bronx Bull."

Oh god, no.

"08) It’s official: Bill Murray will not be part of Ghostbusters 3."

Then why do it?

"15) The third Hobbit film will hit theaters in the summer 2014."

I have a bad feeling about this.

"20) Rush Hour 4 is still in development, producers want something “more gritty.”

What?

"30) A movie based on ALF is being developed by the producer of last year's Smurfs feature. "

Shit fuck.

"01) The Brady Bunch is getting the reboot treatment."

Shit fuck again.

Days Of Future Past is an awesome X-men storyline. Be interesting to see if Wolverine has a major part in it.

Donald in Kick Ass 2 will be awesome, his over the top deliverance will fit perfectly in the film.

Rush Hour 4? Fuck off.
