While there are many who will argue that Ridley Scott's "Alien" is still the pinnacle of the franchise, there is an equal number who argue passionately for James Cameron's "Aliens" as the high point in the series. But no matter which side of the fence you're on, it can't be denied that the director took the monumental task of making the followup, and delivered in a big way.

Exodus: Gods & Kings
"I guess I didn't pay attention in Sunday School," Ridley Scott told Entertainment Weekly recently about the depth of the story he'll explore in "Exodus: Gods And Kings." "There was so much I had forgotten. It's a marvelous human story about change. There are massive questions here. You treat it with great respect."

Sequels That Killed The Franchise
30 years ago last week, “Ghostbusters” hit our screens. It was an anniversary feted by many, (ourselves included, check out our nostalgia trip back to summer 1984), with articles, celebrations, appreciations, oral histories and even the announcement of a forthcoming theatrical re-release all timed to capitalize on the film’s now-classic status. By contrast, the 25th anniversary of “Ghostbusters II,” which happens this week, comes upon us largely unheralded, with perhaps just a far-off slow clap and an internet tumbleweed or two to mark the occasion. Safe to say the sequel is not quite as beloved as the original.

That Sigourney Weaver would be returning for all three "Avatar" sequels is kind of old news, but the biggest question has been exactly how she'd be reprising her role considering her character died the first time out. But for a while now, James Cameron has been teasing that he may be messing with the timelines.

Sigourney Weaver, Aliens, Ghostbusters
Well, actress Sigourney Weaver is certainly a chatty Cathy as of late. It’s probably because “Ghostbusters” celebrated its thirtieth anniversary last week and now everyone’s getting all misty and nostalgic about the movie (including us, we Ranked The Movies Of Summer 1984 and looked at The 20 Greatest Movie Theme Songs Of The 1980s in its honor). And so in a recent Vanity Fair piece looking back at everyone’s favorite spook busters, Weaver was asked about “Ghostbusters 3.”

Well this will certainly be a change of pace for actor we're used to seeing wearing a hoodie and saying "Bitch" more often and better than anyone. Ridley Scott's "Exodus" is ramping up its casting and has an interesting slate of names coming aboard.

A few years ago some book about a girl and her vampire boyfriend did reasonably well, and a few years before that some book about a boy and his magic school did pretty good too, and eventually this news made its way to the ears of eager studio executives, whose eyes lit up with childlike wonder at the thought of huge, fat piles of money. So they bought the rights, and they did pretty well off them.

If you’re the kind of person that loves to work Newt’s infamous “They mostly come out at night…Mostly” line into every conversation that you can, you might think you’re pretty well-versed in the world of James Cameron’s “Aliens.” Since the film’s release in 1986 there have been plenty of interviews, documentaries, and discussions given about the sci-fi classic, but none are as comprehensive as the one you can view below.

We were already pretty interested in "I Am Love" director Luca Guadagnino's latest feature "Body Art" after it was announced that its production would be marrying key collaborators from two of 2012's fascinating "man-travels-around-a-city-in-a-limousine-during-a-single-day" movies. We're of course referring to "Cosmopolis" and "Holy Motors," as "Body Art" is based on a novel by the former's author Don DeLillo, and will also star the lead actor from the latter, Denis Lavant. Stretching the connections even further, David Cronenberg will also appear on-screen in a rare acting role. Isabelle Huppert will lead the cast, which was basically the cherry on the top, but just when you thought it couldn't get any better the movie goes and casts Sigourney Weaver too.
