More Marvel mystery moves as the studio, with just a few weeks before to go before Comic-Con, has shifted its unknown 2014 movie from May 14th to August 1st. So what does this all mean? Who knows. While it was recently reported that "Guardians Of The Galaxy" was the title it was keeping secret for that slot (and it's largely expected that it will be 'Guardians'), as usual, the studio has remained tightlipped, so who knows what exactly its cooking up. But the shift is a savvy one.

For fuck's sake, thank God they finally chose someone. After we first reported that Mia Wasikowska and Zoe Aggeliki were in the mix for the role of Johanna Mason in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," it seemed subsequent updates started to drip out, like some kind of slow Chinese water torture. First there was the news that Jena Malone was in the hunt, then the update that the role was going to be going Aggeliki's way (we were also told she was Francis Lawrence's choice), but it appears nobody knows nothing.

“I haven’t gotten the big idea,” David Lynch recently told 24 Frames about the prospect of future movies from the helmer. “I’ve got some fragments that are coming, but not the big idea...If I got an idea that I fell in love with, I’d go to work tomorrow. I just haven’t.” And while that's a bummer, it seems there are still bits of pieces of the director's work that are worth revisiting.

Yeah, we know. It's been exactly 0.5 seconds since the last "The Dark Knight Rises" update, but we both know that the movie can't get here soon enough, so let's just get on with it.

We're a few short weeks from Comic-Con, where geeks will have their minds blown by cosplay girls by oodles of footage, images and other goodies unveiled by studios and filmmakers, as they hawk their genre wares. And Guillermo del Toro, a longstanding fixture in San Diego, is set to return, but this time with a brand new film, his first since 2008's "Hellboy II: The Golden Army." And while there will likely be much more on the Comic-Con floor, we'll take what we can get for now.

He made Mayberry home to all of America, he dispensed justice as Ben Matlock and along the way, became one of the most beloved film actors of all time. But sadly, Andy Griffith has passed away today at the age of 86.

As of today, "The Amazing Spider-Man" is in theaters, ending the two-and-a-half-year build up to one of the more controversial superhero films in history. Plans for a "Spider-Man 4" were well underway at the end of 2009, with Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire both returning for a script (by "Rabbit Hole" writer David Lindsay-Abaire) which saw your friendly neighborhood web-slinger come against classic villain The Vulture (John Malkovich) and his daughter The Vultress (Anne Hathaway). But wary of spiraling costs, bad reviews for the third-installment, and an aging lead (Maguire would have been 36 by the time of the film's summer 2011 release, for a character normally portrayed at half that age), Sony pulled the plug and decided to start all over again, to no little protestations from fans.

"We'll try again," Bill Murray said recently on David Letterman, alluding to the status of the long-gestating "Ghosbusters 3" at Columbia Pictures. And so what's happening with the proposed after-the-fact threequel? Well, while Murray didn't exactly spell it out, recent news seems to confirm all suspicions: the most recent drafts of "Ghostbusters 3" have been thrown in the trash and inveterate "Ghosbusters" champion and producer Dan Aykroyd is starting over.

Andre 3000 Will Cover The Beatles, Muddy Waters & More In Jimi Hendrix Biopic 'All Is By My Side'; Sundance Premiere In The Works

As you probably know by now, the Jimi Hendrix estate is not too pleased about the currently filming biopic "All Is By My Side," which features hip hop star Andre 3000 in the lead role. But there isn't much they can do about it. As long as the movie doesn't use any songs by the late, legendary musician -- which they would need to get permission for, and which they don't plan to use anyway -- they can pretty much continue as they wish. But the big question thus far is, if they can't use any Hendrix tunes, just what are they going to use?
