Ordinarily, toy brand + celeb voice = us falling asleep. But, it's Lego and we pretty much like everyone who is coming on board a lot, and the guys directing it are solid too. So, color us optimistic. And really, how can you not like these latest additions?

If things stay the way they are now (which they probably won't), "Star Wars: Episode 7" will be directed by Matthew Vaughn with a script by Michael Ardnt (he completed a treatment for the trilogy, but he hasn't yet signed to write the screenplays). And while fans to continue to toss around dream names for who will sign on to direct the sequel, you can count three names out.

We'll certainly give Marvel credit for doing the impossible in creating a linked cinematic universe for their characters that is (mostly) coherent and complete. It's certainly no easy task, but they've managed to take their brand beyond the comic book store and into the pop cultural sphere at large, so kudos are definitely deserved. But when it comes to trying to snare A-list directors, they might want to rethink their approach.

Having premiered at the AFI Fest last week, the verdict is still out on whether or not Sacha Gervasi's "Hitchcock" will be a major player in the awards season race. But, with the first reviews mostly positive (though not overwhelming, and we were certainly not quite taken with its charms), Fox Searchlight is off to a good start, and now a new international trailer has landed to show off a little more of what audiences can expect from the movie.

Ben Wheatley is a busy guy. Even as we chatted with him at TIFF about "Sightseers," he was already in pre-production on his next movie, "A Field In England," which again finds him shifting gears in fascinating ways. A period movie that will be both in black and white and color, and a production that will find him building his own camera lenses from scratch, we can only imagine the final result will be a bit more trippy than this first image.

Three Wong Kar-Wai posts in one week? Given how little we hear from the director, that's practically a deluge. But with his long awaited "The Grandmasters" finally finished and coming to theaters (overseas anyway), there is some new material to dig into. We've already seen a new trailer and some new pictures, and now here are a few more images to tide us over.

Ever since the undead first lurched around George A. Romero's "Night Of The Living Dead," audiences have been captivated by zombies. They've entered nearly every pop culture sphere, hunting for brains at the movies, on television, in books, graphic novels, comics and more, and in 2013 they are invading the multiplex once again. Yesterday saw trailers arrive for two zombie flicks, the smaller budget "Warm Bodies" (watch here) from director Jonathan Levine, and the blockbuster "World War Z" (watch here) starring Brad Pitt. But the question is: does the zombie movie have anything new to say?

With “Lincoln” finally hitting theaters today in select theaters -- it opens wide next week -- and pundits predicting multiple nominations for the long-delayed project, Steven Spielberg has decided he wants to stay in the Tony Kushner business and is already working with the “Lincoln” writer again.

Tom Cruise All You Need Is Kill, Edge Of Tomorrow
All you need is Cruise, amirite? While the tabloid machine never stops swirling around the actor, he's just putting his head down and getting the work done, and though "Jack Reacher" looks generic as well, we have to say our eyebrows are certainly raised by this image.

First Michael Bay said his "Pain And Gain" star Mark Wahlberg would be in "Transformers 4," then he said, well, no, but we'll work together on a "different project" and then yesterday is sounded like Marky Mark was back in the fold. So we suppose it's no major shocker here. After what evidently seems like a fruitful collaboration on Bay's upcoming “Pain and Gain,” Wahlberg has been set for the lead of his sorta-rebooted "Transformers 4."
