The fate of the world is in Brad Pitt’s hands!

Check out the latest clip from World War Z:World War Z Clip – Mother Mature
Pitt stars as Gerry Lane, a man who leaves his family behind to travel the world looking for a cure to the zombie pandemic that threatens humanity.
Here’s hoping he finds one! And that it’s not something like “be kinder to others,” because that’s not happening.

Johnny Depp did a lot of his own stunts in The Lone Ranger.
Even ones that weren’t scripted, like falling from a horse and causing the whole crew to panic!
As I’m sure you’ve guessed, given that we haven’t heard anything about his massive torso gash, Depp is totally fine. See the ordeal in the new featurette for The Lone Ranger:The Lone Ranger Featurette – The Craft

Tony Danza just can’t contain himself in the first clip from Don Jon.
The way Danza, playing the main character’s dad, reacts to Scarlett Johansson gives us some idea where Jon gets his attitudes about sex and love from. Take a look:Don Jon Clip

The dudes in Wedding Crashers have nothing on these guys.
The entire wedding party fleeing a squad of Imperial AT-AT Walkers a la The Empire Strikes Back? Probably the best idea for a wedding photo ever …
Photographer Lisa Wiebe tried to creating a nerd-tastic chase scene for bride and groom Leslie Seiler and Paul Kingston, both diehard Star Wars fans.
Safe to say she succeeded.
Wiebe halted traffic while a horde of screaming bridesmaids and groomsmen ran for their lives down a Toronto street in order to get this shot.
“Our philosophy as photographers is to keep true to ourMore >

An Angry Birds movie really is in the works.
So why not a film based on Candy Crush Saga, right? Considering it’s the most downloaded mobile game in the world at the moment?
That may very well take place… but there are no actual plans for it right now.

Man of Steel has earned an estimated $21 million from Thursday night screenings!
That puts the Superman reboot at 7th place all time for “midnight” earnings. The problem with that number is that $12 million of that $21 million came from special 7pm screenings.
We’re not faulting Man of Steel for having those screenings, but the context for these numbers is constantly changing. Higher ticket prices for 3D and IMAX theaters, and ever-earlier premieres make it hard to really compare performances.
For reference, Iron Man 3 took in $15.6 million on its Thursday night opening.
The recipe for a great superhero movie is quite elusive.
How much of it should be canon? How much should be fresh?
Is it personal or universal? Gritty or fantastical?
For kids or adults? For fans or newcomers?
A superhero movie is typically lauded or panned on these points, sometimes with the same decision paying off in one film while failing in another.
Zack Snyder decided to do all of it. He did canon. He did fresh. He did personal and universal, gritty and fantastical, all of it.
Man of Steel is essentially three entirely separate films, none of which feel fullyMore >
Go behind the bling in the new Bling Ring featurette:The Bling Ring Featurette
The film recreates the story of the real-life celebrity theft ring, where a group of teens would break into celebrities’ homes and steal their stuff.
Hey, if you can get away with it, why not?
Obviously, in the end they didn’t get away with. But I’m sure they had fun while it lasted.
Emma Watson stars in the film along with Katie Chang, Israel Broussard, Taissa Farmiga, and Claire Julien.
Sofia Coppola directs the film, which also features cameo appearances from Paris Hilton and KirstenMore >

The first trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire is here!
It looks super epic (as expected). Take a gander:300: Rise of an Empire Trailer
The action sequel is based on the Frank Miller graphic novel Xerxes, and follows a naval war between the Persian Empire and the Greek city-states.
Zack Snyder, who directed the first film, co-wrote the sequel and produced, with Noam Murro taking over the directing duties.
Murro, however, follows the Snyder’s vision from the first film, which can be seen in the trailer.
Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Lena Headey and David Wenham star.
We already know the Veronica Mars movie is happening (EEK!!!).
But creator Rob Thomas wrote an email yesterday to the Kickstarter backers who helped bring this upcomng film to life and broke the exciting news of others who will be joining Kristen Bell on the big screen.
Led by Tina Majorino as Mac.
“I really wanted Tina in Veronica Mars,” Thomas said. “To say I wrote Mac with Tina in mind would be an understatement. I wrote Mac for Tina, and Tina only. Veronica needed a female friend, and a Q to her Bond.
“Tina felt like just the sort of girl that Veronica would like andMore >
Comedy trailers are hard to pull off.
