J.J. Abrams Returning to Direct ‘Star Wars: Episode 9’?

When Rian Johnson was officially announced as the Star Wars: Episode 8 director last week, one name was conspicuously absent from the initial press release: J.J. Abrams. Among the producers listed — Kathleen Kennedy, Ram Bergman (Looper) and Johnson — Abrams was nowhere to be found. An updated release was later sent with Abrams noted as an Executive Producer, but it only fueled the flames that J.J. Abrams may be one-and-done with the Star Wars franchise. Not so fast.

Miles Teller Says the Fantastic Four Will Wear the Classic Costumes in the Upcoming Reboot

After the Fantastic Four trailer debuted online, and with the subsequent images from the film, many people have remarked that the costumes seen in the trailer looking nothing at all like the outfits worn in the comics. Star Michael B. Jordan has previously described these new suits as “containment suits” because they were looking for something different for this “gritty” take on the film. But, fear not True Believers: we spoke to Fantastic Four star Miles Teller and he told us that you can expect to see something more traditional as well.

‘Spectre’ Poster: James Bond Ditches His Suit

Unlike the super secrecy of Star Wars: Episode 7 or Marvel, Spectre has been surprisingly forthcoming, especially for a movie that's all about secrets. So far, in just a relatively short amount of filming time, we've had two video blogs updating with news the set and today we already have a Spectre poster.

First ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff Officially Titled ‘Rogue One’

Star Wars details have always been difficult to come by, but they've proven even more difficult with the upcoming spinoff. Other than confirmation that Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) will direct, we know very little about the film. Well, now we at least know what it will be called. Disney and Lucasfilm today confirmed that the first ever Star Wars spinoff will be officially called Rogue One.

‘Hotel Transylvania 2’ Trailer: Things Get Batty in This Adam Sandler Sequel

Adam Sandler’s live-action comedies have been underperforming lately (so much so that he recently signed a deal to make his next movies for Netflix), but 2012’s Hotel Transylvania was one of Sandler's best performing films in years. Because of that success, a new sequel is on the way with the whole “Drac Pack” returning for a spooky adventure.

Some Genius Mashed Up Earl Sinclair From ‘Dinosaurs’ Rapping Notorious B.I.G.

We don't even know how to convince you to watch this video, other than to tell you that sometimes you just need to trust us. Someone created a video mashup of Earl Sinclair from Dinosaurs — the 90s ABC family sitcom starring dinosaur puppets — rapping the entirety of Notorious B.I.G.'s ‘Hypnotize’. Yes, we realize this makes no sense, but it's perfect.

‘Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials’ First Look: So, What’s Outside of the Maze?

The Maze Runner was a surprisingly entertaining movie, even at a time when dystopian young adult adaptations are already feeling stale. There was a lot of inherent mystery built up around the film's central conceit — what the heck is this maze, who built it and can our heroes solve it? — and that was great. But, how will a Maze Runner film work when (spoiler alert) there's no maze? Enter: The Scorch Trials.
