Before we had more details about Disney's plans for its newly-acquired Star Wars movie franchise, we asked you who you thought would make a good replacement for Harrison Ford as Han Solo in the planned Star Wars: Episode VII movie. You chose Nathan Fillion by a wide margin — an excellent choice considering Joss Whedon based the character that Fillion played in Serenity on Han Solo — but the more we hear about Episode VII, the more we're convinced that Ford will be reprising the role himself. That doesn't mean that the hunt for Han Solo is over, however.
Last week, Disney announced that at least two spin-off movies set in the Star Wars universe are in development, in addition to the new trilogy that will begin with Episode VII. One of the spin-offs will be set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope and chronicle the adventures of Han Solo before his fateful meeting with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Obi-Wan Kenobi (Sir Alec Guinness) on Tatooine. Considering Ford was 35 when he played Solo for the first time, Disney will likely be looking to cast an actor in his 20's or early 30's, which puts Fillion, at 41, out of the running for the gig. Put on your thinking caps once again and help us to choose the best actor to play the smuggler, gambler and scoundrel who will one day woo a princess and help save the galaxy.

"No piece of art is worth a human life."
After winning the Academy Award for his direction of 2008's Slumdog Millionaire and scoring a Best Picture nomination for his follow-up, 127 Hours, it's strange that it took so long for Danny Boyle's latest movie, Trance, to find distribution in the United States. Already slated to open in March in the U.K., Trance will finally reach U.S. shores in April, with the delay perhaps explained by the fact that the movie was funded and shot in Britain.
Trance follows James McAvoy (X-Men: First Class) as a fine art auctioneer who plots to steal a fine art painting after being mixed up with a gang led by Vincent Cassel (Black Swan). After McAvoy double-crosses the gang, he is beaten over the head and can no longer remember where he has hidden the painting, and seeks help from a hypnotherapist (Rosario Dawson). The resulting first trailer (and its subsequent poster), reveal a story where the line between reality and hypnotic suggestion become blurred and the question of everyone's real intentions is not easily answered. hypnotic trailers

Who Should Wear the Cape & Cowl?
It's still unclear how Warner Bros. (WB) plans to proceed with the Batman franchise now that director Christopher Nolan has wrapped up his trilogy. If you've seen The Dark Knight Rises, than you know that Nolan handed the keys to the bat cave to someone from within the universe he created just in case WB wanted to continue the story. However, since the studio announced in June that Gangster Squad scribe Will Beall had been hired to pen a movie based on DC Comics' preeminent super-team, the Justice League — the team's current roster includes Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman and Cyborg — it seems far more likely that a new Bruce Wayne/Batman will be chosen, one that has nothing to do with Nolan's universe.
It will be tough to fill Christian Bale's Academy Award-winning shoes, but there must be someone out there with the physicality to play a superhero and the acting chops to portray a man driven to prevent the kind of senseless violence that took his parents away from him. Help us choose the new Dark Knight.

Twentieth Century Fox didn't have a panel at this year's Comic-Con, but Simon Kinberg, who wrote the ill-fated 2006 sequel X-Men: The Last Stand and produced last year's X-Men: First Class, was on hand to discuss Fox's X-Men franchise. While ostensibly there to help promote Sony's upcoming sci-fi movie Elysium, Kinberg also spoke to ComingSoon about the X-Men: First Class sequel, which Kinberg is writing for First Class director Matthew Vaughn, whose return for the sequel was in question until he was confirmed to return in January. During the interview, Kinberg discussed his relationship with Vaughn and the X-Men franchise. what will happen in the sequel? >> Posted 07.15.12 by Ryan
Twentieth Century Fox has yet to officially announce a sequel for X-Men: First Class, but that hasn't stopped cast members from talking about it. Michael Fassbender, who played Erik Lensherr, a.k.a. Magneto, recently revealed that he's "looking forward to working with all those people again," and Jason Flemyng, who plays the teleporter Azazel, recently said that "fingers crossed I'll be bright red again by next summer." James McAvoy, who played Charles Xavier, a.k.a. Professor X, agrees with the idea of a sequel.
In a recent interview with io9, McAvoy said he "would definitely like to be in the sequel," though, he qualified, "I'm bound to be in the sequel by a contract that says we do three films. So if Fox decides we're doing it, then I don't have a choice." Not that McAvoy minds. "But I would still like to," McAvoy continued. "I had a great time with [director] Matthew [Vaughn] and Michael, that was a great threesome to work with and really sort of carve out a new beginning for those two characters." mcavoy says professor x has more growing to do >> Posted 11.20.11 by Ryan
X-Men: First Class was one the most critically-acclaimed comic book movies of the summer (and, in our view, one of the better adaptations this year), but movement on a sequel has been slow. Despite earning $335 million in worldwide box office (and over a million DVD and Blu-ray copies sold in the U.S. alone), Twentieth Century Fox has yet to officially announce a sequel, though, earlier this month, First Class actor Jason Flemyng revealed that a script for X-Men: First Class 2 was in progress just as it was being reported that First Class producer Simon Kinberg was writing the script.
First Class focused on the early days of friendship between mutant leaders Professor X (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender), set during the Cuban Missile Crisis of the 1960s. In a recent interview with Collider, Fassbender said that he had "no idea" when production on a sequel would start, but admitted that he was "looking forward to working with all those people again." read fassbender's comments >> Posted 11.12.11 by Ryan
After slowly releasing two teaser trailers for their upcoming, 3-D animated, holiday-themed family comedy Arthur Christmas, Columbia Pictures has finally released a full-length trailer.
This first full-length trailer reveals the story of Arthur Christmas, which shows Arthur being called into action to save his family's reputation after the high-tech gift-delivery system experiences a glitch. watch the trailer >> Posted 10.06.11 by Ryan
Wanted impressed at the box office when it first opened, so much so that there was instantly talk of turning the movie into a trilogy. That was in 2008.
Three years later, and with Angelina Jolie admitting that she is not interested in having her character brought back from the dead, progress has slowed. In April, James McAvoy, who played office-worker-turned-assassin Wesley, said that he didn't think a sequel was likely, while, a year ago, comic book co-creator Mark Millar concurred, admitting that "if it happens, great" but that "if it doesn’t, I’m not bothered." Those aren't words that get fans confident for a Wanted 2, but now they can be. details on Wanted 2 >> Posted 09.28.11 by Ryan
In case you missed the X-Men prequel when it was in theaters this summer, X-Men: First Class is coming to DVD on September 9th. One of the deleted scenes has just been released to build anticipation.
Set during the Cuban missile crisis, First Class explores the early days of friendship between Professor X (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and their recruitment of other mutants like them. During the movie, Professor X and Magneto head to a, er, "gentlemen's club" to meet with Angel Salvadore (Zoë Kravitz), who works there, uh, entertaining gentlemen. Angel reveals her mutant powers to the two men but, as the deleted scene reveals, Professor X and Magneto first show their powers to gain the trust of Angel. We're guessing that it was cut because Fassbender objected to appearing in drag... watch the deleted scene >> Posted 08.24.11 by Ryan
