"Captain America: First Avenger" Sequel Gets Release Date! 

Walt Disney Studios has announced the release date for the sequel to the Marvel Studios hit "Captain America: First Avenger." Part two will hit theaters on April 4, 2014. And then, one month later, the sequel to "The Amazing Spider-Man" will open on May 5, 2014.

Marvel overkill much?

I enjoyed "Captain America" (check out my interview with Captain America himself, Chris Evans, right here), I'm sure I'll enjoy the upcoming "The Amazing Spider-Man," heck I'm even positive I'll love the new Joss Whedon film "The Avengers," but I don't know about you, I am feeling just a tad of Marvel overload.

But if the story is good, and the sequel delivers, then I know we'll have more Marvel movies to come! Then we'll complain about Marvel overload again :happy

Taylor Lautner to Join "Grown Ups 2?" 

That Adam Sandler, he takes a licking but keeps on ticking. The comedian was "honored" with a record-breaking 10 Razzies over the weekend, but he keeps on plugging away. And good for him!

Now, The Hollywood Reporter tells us that the actor is negotiating with Taylor Lautner for the "Twilight" star to join "Grown Ups 2!" Yes, the original was a hit in 2010 but do we really need a sequel?

Most of the cast from the first film is expected to return such as Sandler, of course, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, Maya Rudolph and Salma Hayek.

Dennis Dugan, Sandler's fellow Razzie winner for directing "Jack & Jill," will return as director. Oliver Cooper from "Project X' is joining the cast.

Should Lautner take the job? Will this move help his career? Does he really want to prove he's now a grown up?

See the New Trailer for "Katy Perry: Part of Me" Plus, How You Can Be a Part of the Movie! 

Here's the note I received from Paramount:





Here's the official press release and good luck!

HOLLYWOOD, CA (April 3, 2012) – Paramount’s Insurge Pictures today announced they have partnered with Katy Perry, Direct Management, Imagine Entertainment, AEG and co-financing partner EMI on a 3D feature film starring Katy. To be released on July 5, 2012, KATY PERRY: PART OF ME will be a first-ever big-screen look at the international superstar’s life both on- and off-stage.

Said Katy, "I am so excited to paint the silver screen in 3D color with help from our friends at Paramount and Imagine. For the last year and a half, I have intimately documented my life both on and off the stage of The California Dreams Tour. I want to take you behind the cotton candy clouds and reveal the highs and lows and nuts of bolts of this extraordinary ride. I promise you, after seeing this film, you will truly know me."

President of Paramount Film Group, Adam Goodman, said, “Katy’s one-of-a-kind story, and our unique ability at Insurge to create equally unique movie going experiences, was a natural fit. We’re beyond excited to offer her fans, who inspired this movie, and moviegoers everywhere, this once-in-a-lifetime look into her world and capture a moment in time.”

"This has been a milestone year for Katy. She is emblematic of the culturally forward thinking artists that we endeavor to highlight at Insurge, so when the opportunity came about to work with her on this film, Adam and I immediately jumped at the chance," said Amy Powell, President, Paramount Insurge.

Katy began documenting her California Dreams Tour, consisting of 124 performances, over a year ago. Her management team, Direct Management, soon after brought AEG into the project to film the artist's two shows at Staples Center in LA in 3D. A partnership with Imagine Entertainment followed.

Directed by the Magical Elves team of Jane Lipsitz and Dan Cutforth (JUSTIN BIEBER: NEVER SAY NEVER), KATY PERRY: PART OF ME is produced by Katy, along with Martin Kirkup, Bradford Cobb, and Steven Jensen of Direct Management; and Academy Award®-winner Brian Grazer (8 MILE, A BEAUTIFUL MIND) of Imagine Entertainment. The film’s executive producers include Craig Brewer (FOOTLOOSE, HUSTLE & FLOW), Randy Phillips of AEG, Erica Huggins and Michael Rosenberg of Imagine Entertainment; and Ed Lovelace and James Hall of Pulse Films. Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald and Max Martin, who co-wrote the title song with Perry, will serve as co-producers, along with Nanette Bernstein (AMERICAN TEEN), Thomas Benski and Dan Bowen of Pulse Films, Anna Culp of Imagine Entertainment, and Archie Gips of Magical Elves.

Katy's new single, "Part Of Me" debuted in the #1 spot on Billboard's Hot 100 on February 22nd, making it the first in a year, and only the 20th in 53 years, to debut at #1. Since the 2008 release of “One of the Boys,” Perry has topped the charts in more than 25 countries and has sold more than 50 million digital tracks and mobile products, as well as 10 million albums worldwide. Her hits include “I Kissed a Girl,” “Hot N Cold,” “Thinking Of You,” “Waking Up in Vegas,” as well as "California Gurls," "Teenage Dream," "Firework," "E.T.," "Last Friday Night," and "The One That Got Away," all from the "Teenage Dream" album. A special edition of Katy’s double platinum album “Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection," was released on March 26th.

An EMI artist, Katy is represented by managers Bradford Cobb, Martin Kirkup, Steven Jensen and Ngoc Hoang of Direct Management Group, Inc.
