"The Dark Knight Rises!"
Christopher Nolan made his third Batman film announcement via the LA Times, but he was not ready to reveal the villain of the 2012 threequel.
But one thing's for sure, “It won’t be the Riddler,” Nolan said in an exclusive interview with Hero Complex.
The best part? Nolan is resisting the current 3D craze and "instead use high-definition approaches and IMAX cameras to strike out on a different cinematic path than the stereoscopic technology that, for better or worse, has become the dominant conversation in the blockbuster sector."
Nolan also revealed that he would be keeping the characters we know and loved, and would be introducing new ones. The director also said that he co-wrote the script with his brother, Jonah, and it's based on a story by the director and David Goyer.

Two weeks ago, we told you the plan to make a sequel to "Top Gun." It would be written by Christopher McQuarrie ("The Usual Suspects") and director Tony Scott and producer Jerry Bruckheimer are attached to return.
Tom Cruise was only supposed to appear in a smaller role, but as McQuarrie told Vulture, it would be a starring role! The writer revealed that, "There is no Top Gun 2 in which Maverick is not the starring role."
So there you have it. You can rest easy now Maverick fans. Cruise would be back in the starring role that made him an icon!

You know a movie based on Michael Jackson's "Thriller" is bound to happen. Now, Deadline is reporting that GK Films is actively negotiating to acquire a package for a film "that is being fashioned around his groundbreaking hit song Thriller."
Kenny Ortega is attached to direct while "The Hangover" writer, Jeremy Garelick, is penning the screenplay.
Fox 2000, Mandate/Lionsgate, and Summit Entertainment are all interested in distributing the film which has a tag price of under $50 million.
Plot is being kept under wraps right now but it has something to do with the Vincent Price soliloquy in the song, and the town he grew up in.
So, it's safe to say we'll still see zombies and perhaps, vampires!

It's Halloween season again, time for my my annual spooky-related list. Last year, I gave you the best of the best (See Top 13 Scary Flicks of All Time), now, I'm choosing the Top 13 Modern Scary Films (pretty much horror movies from the last decade).
I'm a horror buff so it's hard to choose, but the films that didn't make it to my Top 13 were put in my Runners-up category.
So, here it is, The Top 13 Modern Scary Films. Did your favorite appear on my list? Read More...

Everyone's buzzing about how Liam Neeson replaced Mel Gibson for a cameo in "The Hangover 2." Gibson was unceremoniously dumped due to protests from cast and crew.
So how did Neeson get the part? All hail Bradley Cooper!
Apparently, Neeson and Cooper became fast friends while making "The A-Team" for Fox. So when Gibson was ousted, Neeson was brought in and was glad to help.
And this was not the first time Neeson came in to help. The actor also replaced Cooper in "The Grey," an Alaskan oil drilling adventure that initially had Cooper in the lead role for their "A-Team" director Joe Carnahan. But he had to leave because of scheduling conflicts so Neeson came in again to help.
That Neeson is such a Boy Scout!
