It seems that Tom Cruise can't stop making movies right now. He's got "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" and "Rock of Ages" in the bag, he's currently shooting "One Shot," and after that the suddenly busy actor will roll right into the "Tron: Legacy" director Joseph Kosinski's "Oblivion." The movie found one of its two female leads in Jessica Chastain late last month and now a trio of actresses is vying for the other part.

Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale & Bryan Cranston Talk Remaking A Wacko Sci-Fi ClassicAfter "30 Minutes or Less" at yesterday's Columbia panel at Comic-Con 2011, "Total Recall" stars Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale, Bryan Cranston and director Len Wiseman took the stage to show footage and field questions from the audience. “We’re halfway through shooting so we don’t have enough to put together a trailer, but I know not seeing something is a big bummer.

Though "Breaking Dawn" has captured the hearts of teens and their moms, the brutal, blood-sucking, non-sparkly vampire remains immortal. After Thursday's "Twilight" lovefest, Comic-Con's Hall H was taken over by two vehicles for the meaner brand of the undead with "Fright Night" and "Underworld: Awakening" on Friday. "Fright Night" reimagines the '80s classic, this time casting Colin Farrell as the not-so-neighborly vamp Jerry and Anton Yelchin as the threatened boy next door. Meanwhile, "Underworld: Awakening" revives Kate Beckinsale's role in the franchise as her Selene comes out of a coma after more than a decade.
