Some horror fans may think that the 1980s was the best times for horror movies, but Hollywood's constant rummaging through the VHS bin of the era for remake material doesn't always sit well. While last year's "Fright Night" wasn't the worst offender of 1980s horror retelling (that would be "Nightmare on Elm Street" for the record), fans who took umbrage at that effort can take comfort that the original film's writer/director Tom Holland is finally back and ready to make his first theatrical feature since 1996's "Thinner."

Things Change: Raekwon Won't Be In ODB Biopic 'Dirty White Boy' Either; Will Forte Says 'MacGruber 2' Script Will At Least Be Written

For most of its early stages, it seemed like the biopic "Dirty White Boy" could do no wrong. First, Michael K. Williams (aka Omar from HBO's "The Wire") was cast to play the late rapper Ol' Dirty Bastard (or ODB) in the film, and then it looked like the actual members of the Wu-Tang Clan were going to appear as themselves in the movie. While this blew our collective minds, the fact that the Wu-Tang would play themselves in a movie more or less about themselves alongside Williams had a suspicious element of being too good to be true. When GZA, ODB's cousin and fellow founding member of the Wu-Tang, announced he wasn't going to appear in the film, those suspicions were realized.

There has been a lot of talk around "Wonder Woman" for the past year or so, but not much action. On the television side, NBC tried to kickstart a series with Adrianne Palicki in the lead, but it was met with terrible reviews and was denied the stamp of fanboy approval, as that crucial segment criticized nearly every aspect of the production. And through the "Drive" press rounds, Nicolas Winding Refn continued talking up his desire to make a feature film, but there is nothing formal in place. The director hinted that if he did a good job with "Logan's Run," Warner Bros. might give him the keys to the DC Comics character, but there hasn't been much heard on that sci-fi reboot either in a while. However, it does seem the movie is continuing to brew at the studio.

With "Green Lantern" tanking and disappointing last summer, "The Dark Knight Rises" putting Batman to bed (for now), and the verdict still out on "Man Of Steel" next year, Warner Bros. is looking pretty short on comic book heroes to exploit. But they've got an ace up their sleeve in "Justice League." A movie they've been trying to get off the ground for years (more on that in a moment), the studio is undoubtedly looking at Marvel's $1.3 billion worldwide haul for "The Avengers" and drooling. You call that a team up movie? How about one with Superman and Batman in the same damn movie? So no surprise they are giving it another go.

'Catching Fire' Producer Says Finnick Odair Casting Rumors Are "So Not True"; Armie Hammer & Garrett Hedlund Not In The Mix

What do we know about the casting of Finnick Odair in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire"? That none of the names mentioned or rumored so far have panned out. Robert Pattinson was the first to to kibosh rumors about his potential involvement, while Taylor Kitsch followed suit not long after. And it seems none of the names, including Armie Hammer and Garrett Hedlund, are in contention at this point.

While Andy Samberg has officially left "Saturday Night Live," he hasn't put iMovie away yet, as he's gone ahead and cut his own version of the trailer for "That's My Boy," which is not surprisingly, pretty awesome.

As students head into summer and free of worrying about homework, teachers, tests and whatever else is on their mind, next fall, a whole new batch of kids will be entering high school for the first time. It can be a terrifying, alienating experience, making the already rough years of adolescence even more difficult, but at least at the cinema, there will be a movie that understands exactly what they're going through.

With Marvel's upcoming slate featuring a trio of sequels -- "Iron Man 3," "Thor 2" and a follow-up to "Captain America: The First Avenger" -- speculation has been running high and wide about what their next standalone movie character might be. We're not going to run through them all again, but remember, it was just a couple of weeks ago when Marvel honcho Kevin Feige said there were two more unannounced movies in the works. And if this report is accurate, you can probably knock off one of them.

While there are many who will swear that Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon was intentionally designed to sync up perfectly with "The Wizard of Oz," sometimes there are just happy coincidences. And that's what you could probably call this intriguing re-edit of the bank robbery sequence that opens Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight."
