Michael Clarke Duncan dead at age 54

Actor Michael Clarke Duncan has passed away at the age of 54, from complications suffered from a heart attack he had in July.

Known for his big build and deep voice, Duncan was in the prime of his life. His first movie role was in 1995's Friday, and he had several small parts playing bouncers and muscle men. It wasn't until 1997's Armageddon that he had a meatier role with more lines, playing one of the rough-and-tumble drilling crew drafted into blowing up an approaching asteroid.

The Hobbit wins a three-peat at the top of the box office

Even with its so-so reviews and a nearly three-hour running time, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is turning out to be a sizeable hit for New Line Cinema and director Peter Jackson. For the third weekend in a row the first Hobbit movie has captured the number one spot at the box office, this time grossing an estimated $32.9 million dollars. That brings the film's 13 day domestic total up to $222.7 million dollars. Factor in another $464 mil from The Hobbit's international venues and the combined box office total -- so far -- now stands at $686 million bucks.

Leonardo DiCaprio really bled for his Django Unchained part

Now that Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained is out in theaters, people are commenting on a scene in the film where Leonardo DiCaprio shed his real blood for the role of slave plantation owner Calvin Candie.

From here on out, beware of minor spoilers for Django Unchained. Don't worry, it won't be much.

There's a scene where DiCaprio's Candie is confronting Django (Jamie Foxx) and Dr. Shultz (Christoph Waltz), the two bounty hunters that are masquerading as prospective buyers for Candie's services. Candie learns of the deception and goes into a hate-filled tirade against the two inposters. During the scene, DiCaprio slams his hand down on the dining table.

Speculation: Is this the villain's motive in Star Trek Into Darkness?

Whether you like the idea behind J.J. Abrams' "mystery box" concept to marketing his movies or not, one thing's for certain: he wants to keep the spoilers a secret until opening day. I learned this firsthand when, four years ago, I broke exclusive news about Abrams' Star Trek reboot. I was the first to publish the details on several key moments in 2009's Star Trek movie, including Kirk's test of the Kobiashi Maru test simulation, a catastrophic attack on Starfleet and young Spock meeting old Spock. I also had other more sensitive details about the movie's story up my sleeve, waiting for publication.

Now you can one more to that list: G.I. Joe Retaliation.

Trailer: Pacific Rim

Get ready to watch some giant robot on giant monster action. The first trailer for Pacific Rim is here.

Launching into theaters in the summer of '13, the logline for Guillermo del Toro's next movie comes across like a fanboy's wet dream: a big budget, CG-filled spectacle where multiple different giant robots (called "Jaegers" in the film) battle to protect humanity from the mindless attacks of giant monsters (called "kaiju"). Sure, when you think about it logically it makes no sense for the armies of the world to spend billions of dollars building giant robots armed with missiles, guns and rocket-powered punching fists, but in Hollywood logic it makes perfect sense.

Trailer #2: Man of Steel

The second trailer for the new Superman movie coming out in 2013, Man of Steel, has arrived.

Thematically it's not that different from the first trailer we saw back in July. The feelings are the same: Clark expressing his doubt about his identity, Clark's father trying to offer advice to his adopted son, a grown Clark trying to find his role in the world. The images are different in the new trailer but they seem to be from the same scenes we witnessed in trailer #1.

All that said, this is an awesome trailer.

Running at one minute and three seconds long, the video gives us our first meaty look at the second movie in the Star Trek rebot universe. The same fresh faced cast from 2009's Star Trek film is back for the sequel along with Benedict Cumberbatch who's playing the mysterious bad guy out to put sad faces on those smiling Federation citizens.

Poster: Star Trek Into Darkness

The first movie poster for Star Trek Into Darkness has been unveiled.

Paramount isn't telling us anything about what we're looking at, but it's likely safe to surmise that the individual whose back is turned to us on that pile of rubble is the mysterious character played by Benedict Cumberbatch. Speculation is that the Sherlock star is playing Gary Mitchell, a Starfleet officer and academy friend of James T. Kirk. In the original Star Trek television series, Mitchell was transformed into a godlike being with vast psionic powers when the Enterprise attempted to cross a barrier at the edge of the galaxy.

Book Review: Tarzan: The Centennial Celebration

I’ve never been much of an admirer of Tarzan, the savage apeman creation of writer Edgar Rice Burroughs. While I can’t say that I didn’t like the character, I was always more into science fiction and thus my interest lay with Burroughs’ other, lesser known creation, John Carter of Mars. That’s not to say that I didn’t hate Tarzan, it’s just that he (and his adventures) seemed one-dimensional and pretty tame. After all, what’s there to do in deepest darkest Africa except fight wild animals?

Fox cans Independence Day 3D, moves up Star Wars 3D prequel releases

I can't determine whether it's a sign of little interest or high expenses that caused 20th Century Fox to cancel its plans to re-release Roland Emmerich's first end of the world FX extravaganza, 1996's Independence Day, in 3D. That's just what the movie studio has done, scuttling plans to post-convert the 16 year old sci-fi/action film into 3D and release it to theaters on July 3, 2013.
