Margot Robbie to Star as Harley Quinn in DC’s ‘Suicide Squad’ Movie

Things got interesting with the upcoming 'Suicide Squad' movie when it was revealed that Jesse Eisenberg would be returning after 'Batman vs. Superman' to star as Lex Luthor. Then, things got really interesting when it was revealed that Jared Leto was in talks to star as The Joker, introducing Batman's greatest nemesis in the new era of 'Justice League' films. What was once thought to be a ragtag group of B-side villains is now shaping up to be a roster full of DC's evil A-list villains. And, now you can even more iconic villain to the lineup.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Interstellar’ and ‘Big Hero 6′ Have a Showdown

The showdown between 'Interstellar' and 'Big Hero 6' has got to be one of the most interesting things to happen to the box office in 2014. After all, it would be tough to find two movies that are simultaneously so different and so alike. Both are pro-science adventures that are all about using your intelligence to save your friends and family. However, one is an animated, family friendly release from Disney and the other is a three-hour epic from the ever-serious Christopher Nolan. In other words, they represent opposite ends of the blockbuster spectrum.

‘The Purge 3′ is Officially In the Works

This summer's 'The Purge: Anarchy' bucked just about every horror sequel trend imaginable. It was not only bigger and better than the 2013 original, it made more money. With a worldwide gross of $110 million on a budget of less than $10 million, there was never a moment of doubt that Universal, Blumhouse productions and writer/director James DeMonaco would pull a part three together. And here we are: 'The Purge 3' is now being developed.

‘Star Trek’ Plea For William Shatner With ‘Greg On The Go’ [VIDEO]

If you're a "Trekker" like me, you probably can't wait until the next Star Trek movie, which I read was debuting in 2016. That would make it's arrival in theaters coincide with Star Trek's 50th Anniversary, as the TV show began in 1966 on NBC. So, wouldn't you think that Paramount Pictures would make sure that William Shatner, the original Captain James T. Kirk would be asked to be in the film?

The reveal of Legendary Pictures' 'Skull Island' was one of the few genuine surprises of this year's Comic-Con.

Now, those gaps are starting to get filled: Jordan Vogt-Roberts has signed on to direct, Tom Hiddleston will star, and the film itself will hit theaters on November 4, 2016.
