We're surprised it took this long. After the smash success of "Magic Mike" in 2012, we figured Hollywood would be flooding the market with movies featuring buff dudes taking off their shirts. Well, "Magic Mike XXL" is on the way with a director selected to take on the gig, and they'll have some competition around the stripper pole.

Perhaps the biggest surprise and news story of the day was the arrival of the trailer for Ben Stiller's "The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty." The film, which Stiller both stars in and directs, was unveiled as something much more than your everyday remake, promising something that could possibly be the subject of Oscar talk a few months from now. It's certainly one of the more ambitious directorial efforts we've seen from Stiller, and it seems he's keen to keep testing himself with interesting material.

While the original writers were hired to pen a sequel last fall, it remained to seen how they would continue from the blood-soaked finale of the first film, a breakneck comic book actioner from director Timur Bekmambetov that grossed $341 million worldwide. With an ending featuring a bloodbath that killed the most important characters, not to mention the biggest names in the cast, a follow-up looked like a tricky proposition, but it looks like that particular story nut has been cracked.

Looks like "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" director Timur Bekmambetov is going from fake history to real history, lining up the decidedly non-action-y "The Current War."
