So remember a couple of years ago when it was announced that The Weinstein Company and Miramax had made a deal which would basically allow them to sequelize everything in the catalogue, with rumors of follow-ups to "Rounders," "Shakespeare In Love," "Swingers" and more all tossed around? Well, Harvey Weinstein hasn't given up the idea of trying to franchise past ideas, only this time, it's a title he sort of didn't have anything to do with the first time around.

Usually we'd be throwing up flags on this until Disney announces this thing themselves, but The Wrap and THR are both reporting that this is indeed legit and real, so let's get to it....

Joaquin Phoenix may come off as somewhat mercurial, perhaps even unapproachable, but his talent is unassailable, and it seems he forges strong creative connections. One need look no further than the four films he's made with James Gray, and now it looks like he's ready to re-up with his "The Master" director Paul Thomas Anderson.

Sean Young Says She's Had A Meeting About 'Blade Runner 2,' But Doubts Original Cast Will Be Back

Well, it's been a while since we've had a "Blade Runner" sequel rumor, but a new year is here, and it looks like the momentum is continuing whether we like it or not. To bring you back up to speed, the follow-up to Ridley Scott's seminal sci-fi movie got official last summer, when it was announced that original writer Hampton Fancher was developing a story with the director. And while there's any number of ways this can go, Scott did say that Harrison Ford may appear in the film, though he wouldn't be the focus. But to hear Sean Young, aka Rachael, tell it, the future might be down one more replicant.

Oh yeah, this movie. We sorta forgot "Bullet To The Head" was even coming, and the marketing campaign seems to be...quiet...perhaps befitting of an early winter release. But with a week to go before it comes out, the push to get people to fork over their hard-earned cash is becoming more prominent.

Latino Review continues their run of comic movie rumorin'. Today's rumor du jour involves the good folks at that site revealing that producers of 2015's planned "Justice League" movie have nailed down a cast of characters for the film, and are limiting the famously huge roster to five core members. We always knew Superman and Batman would be a part of the group, having their own separate franchises with this year's "Man Of Steel" and a possibly forthcoming "The Batman" on it's way. But who would join them?

Filmmaker David Gordon Green's latest effort, "Prince Avalanche," is getting some of the best reviews of his career. A hit at Sundance, that just got picked up by Magnolia Pictures, the unusual, poetically observational pas de deux comedy is funny, but also unexpectedly moving and human (you can read our review here). Starring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch as estranged Beckett-ian odd-couple road crew workers in Texas, the film charts their fractious personal dynamics, their existential uncertainties, and perhaps most impressively, the way they come to ultimately empathize and bond with one another.

If there's one thing that's beginning to buzz around Steven Soderbergh's "Side Effects," it's that you pretty much want to go in as fresh as possible. The movie has started screening in advance of its release next month, and the general feeling is that the trailers give too much away. If you want the best experience possible, you'll want to settle in to this film without knowing anything. But we're pretty sure this clip should be okay to watch.

While the buzz on "The Expendables 2" was fairly muted and the domestic gross lagged behind that of the first film, the blockbuster action sequel still netted a cool $300 million worldwide. Given that making these movies doesn't break the bank, it's not a surprise to learn that a third iteration is in the works. While no director is attached, and the script has yet to be written, Dolph Lundgren confirms he'll return for the musclebound action franchise's third outing, which could even begin shooting this year.

James Wan briefly looked like he could be a one-hit wonder after his phenomenal franchise-launching success with “Saw.” His directorial follow-ups to the horror sensation failed to connect like his first big hit had…but then he went and made “Insidious.” Now with two big hits on his resume, the future looks a heck of a lot brighter for Wan, with 2013 set to see the release of two more anticipated horror flicks in the form of “Insidious Chapter 2” (which has the original cast returning and picks up where the first movie left off) and “The Conjuring” (also starring Patrick Wilson, this time accompanied by Vera Farmiga).
