God’s Pocket,
Philip Seymour Hoffman may no longer be with us, but thankfully he's left a couple completed films to help soften the blow of his tragic loss. Later this year we'll see him in Anton Corbijn's thriller "A Most Wanted Man," but coming first this spring, Hoffman will feature opposite John Turturro in "Mad Men" star John Slattery's drama, "God's Pocket."

James Cameron
So, James Cameron hit the interwebs for a Reddit AMA over the weekend, and he had a lot to say. We've already highlighted his comments about a proposed "Alien 5" and his thoughts on "Prometheus," but that was just the tip of the iceberg (yes, an obvious "Titanic" reference). Cameron had a lot more to say about no small shortage of topics, so let's just dive right in with the good stuff:

Amazing Spider-Man 2
The reviews are out for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" and they are mixed, to say the least (though our Oli Lyttelton really didn't like it), but Sony isn't giving up pushing this hard, and why should they? No matter what the critics say, the sequel is already tracking for a massive $95 million opening weekend, and the studio will do everything it can to make that number bigger.

Harrison Ford Weighs In On “Greedo Shooting First” Controversy, Still Interested In ‘Blade Runner’ Sequel

Harrison Ford, Blade Runner, Greedo
"Han shot first!" is what any "Star Wars" fan will rightly insist really happened in the original release release of "Star Wars." In case you somehow missed out, when George Lucas first released "Star Wars" in 1977, Han Solo found himself face-to-face with Greedo in Mos Eisley's cantina, with the alien looking to collect a debt Han owed to Jabba The Hut, and threatening the pilot's life with a blaster. But Han quickly dispatched Greedo, shooting him with a gun he kept hidden under the table. It was pretty cool. But for the 1997 theatrical release, George Lucas altered the scene, adding in footage that now had Greedo shooting first and missing, before Han fires back, killing him. Naturally, fans were incensed and to date, this is the only version of the scene available on DVD, and of the many tweaks Lucas made to his original trilogy after the fact, this is one of the most controversial. And now, Ford himself has weighed in.

The Fault In Our Stars
You have to hand it to Shailene Woodley. “Divergent” was not exactly a hit with the critics when it came out last month, far from it, but it’s managed to become a solid performer in the box office and has solidified Woodley’s status as a star. Studios have been desperate to replicate the type of success that “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games” have received over the past few years, but only “Divergent” has managed to come close to achieving big box office numbers. Clearly, Shailene Woodley is a big reason for the film’s success. And now, fans of the young actress will get to see her appear on the big screen once again in this summer’s “The Fault In Our Stars.”
