New year, same old Hollywood. We're officially two weeks into 2013, and the first stomach churning reboot news has surfaced. William Wyler's 11 Oscar winning "Ben-Hur" (tied with "Titanic" and "The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King" as the only film to accomplish that feat) is now getting a reboot. Why?

Mark Webber is not only a solid actor traversing both indie and mainstream worlds ("Broken Flowers," "The Hottest State," "Dear Wendy," "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World"), but he has also found his own voice and bloomed into a interesting writer/director in recent years. He released his debut "Explicit Ills" in 2009, and his sophomore directorial effort, "The End of Love" feels like another personal and intimate work. It also features a meta aspect at its core: he stars as an actor named Mark alongside his real-life, then-two-year-old son Issac

Get ready "Star Wars" fans because like it or not, the franchise is getting Zack Snyder-ized. While the hunt for director of "Star Wars: Episode VII" continues (with some rumors suggesting Disney has already chose the helmer, but have yet to announce it), the franchise is growing far beyond the next trilogy. Talk of spinoff films set within the same universe have been bandied about (Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg may be writing them), while the possibility of a TV series has reared its head again. But few saw this coming.

He’s already graced us with four other deleted scenes, which range from topics like the Kardashians to Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong’s death metal side project. Here, we get to see a bit more from Megan Fox, Jason Segel and Chris O’Dowd’s characters from the movie.
