Black Hat
Just a few moments ago at its Comic-Con panel, Legendary Pictures provided a first look at “Black Hat,” formerly known as "Cyber." A footage report will be coming later this weekend, but we can tell you now that the screening was well received. A new logo and photo, a behind-the-scenes still of director/producer Michael Man and star Chris Hemsworth, has also been released.

So, remember all that talk about a "Snow White And The Huntsman" sequel? Well, you better check yourself before you wreck yourself, because it looks like the gameplan is changing. Yes, Universal still wants to make a followup, but they're changing course a bit while hiring a pretty top-tier name to be the guiding light.

Predator, SHane Black
It's been four years since the Robert Rodriguez produced, Nimrod Antal directed "Predators," a reboot of the franchise that kinda went nowhere. The film opened third at the box office on its first weekend, barely made more than $50 million domestic, and ultimately tallied up less than "Alien Vs. Predator" or "Aliens Vs. Predator - Requiem." But Fox reckons it's still a valuable property that people care about (or they're gonna make them care about it) because barely four years on, plans are underway for a reboot.

Cyber Chris Hemsworth
With the movie due in just over half a year, and with no official title yet (though it has had the working title "Cyber"), very little is known about Michael Mann's upcoming thriller. But today brings with it our first images from the film, that is already one we're very curious about.

Lethal Weapon Chris Hemsworth Justin Lin
We've long known that Warner Bros. was planning some kind of remake/reboot of "Lethal Weapon" — along with a bunch of other titles in their catalog —and at one point "Gangster Squad" writer Will Beall was tapped to pen the script. And we basically haven't heard anything in a few years, but today some fresh rumors suggest this thing is back in motion in a big way.

Ameowdeus
In case you were blessed with the superhuman ability to withstand more television after enduring the 3 1/2 hour Oscar ceremony, then perhaps you tuned in (late) last night for a very special episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Or perhaps you went straight to bed like the rest of us. But no worries, because the highlights are now online.

Listen, we already know the idea of remaking "The Raid" so let's save our energy and skip the routine anger and focusing on what we're now learning about the upcoming do-over that was first announced over two years ago.

Far be it from us to snark about "Thor: The Dark World" as people seem to like it and plans are already underway for "Thor 3." But even for those who like the franchise, be honest—it's still third string in the current Marvel universe behind "The Avengers" and "Captain America," right? It is a little goofy, too, and Screen Junkies have detailed just how silly Thor can get.

Universal Pictures and their new partners at Legendary Pictures (they said "see ya later" to Warner Bros. this year after “Pacific Rim”) have unveiled a quintet of release dates for their 2015/2016 season. Let’s get right to it. The first and perhaps most disappointing news is that Michael Mann’s untitled project (a cybercrime thriller set in Hong Kong starring Chris Hemsworth) has been dated for January 16, 2015. January is a crappy date, so it sucks, right? Well, for one, we’ll see if that date sticks, for two, Ron Howard’s Hemsworth-starring “In The Heart of The Sea” opens two months later and “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” is a few months after that, so perhaps the studio is just trying to strategize around those dates.

Thor 2: Dark World, Post Mortem
After rolling out first in the rest of the world, this past weekend saw the U.S. release of "Thor: The Dark World," the third adventure to feature the Norse god of thunder, after "Thor" and "The Avengers," and the eighth movie in Marvel's cinematic masterplan. As you might have assumed, the movie's a massive hit: an $86 million opening weekend, to add to the $240 million it's already taken abroad.
