10 hidden easter eggs in Captain America: The First Avenger

Ever since the release of the first X-Men movie back in 2000, there has been an intelligent attempt to build up the layers of the Marvel film universe. With thousands of characters created throughout the years, and millions of people now familiar with the heroes that populate the Marvel universe, the creators of the modern Marvel movies, as well as the executives running Marvel Studios, are trying to appease fans by giving them quick cameos or mentions of characters and equipment from the comic books.

Zack Snyder isn't making a Star Wars movie. Maybe.

Earlier today New York magazine's showbiz gossip source Vulture broke the story that Watchmen / 300 director Zack Snyder would be making his own Star Wars movie. It wouldn't be the long prophecised Episode VII, or Episode VIII, or even Episode IX, but a stand-alone Star Wars movie that would feature new, never before seen Jedi characters.

This rumored Star Wars movie that Snyder was going to make would be his version of Akira Korosawa's Seven Samurai, with the Jedi Knights and their lightsabers subbing for the blade-wielding ronin.

Zero Dark Thirty expands, captures first place at the box office

Last week was a big one for Zero Dark Thirty, the new Kathryn Bigelow-directed docu-drama about the hunt for Osama bin Laden. The movie captured five Oscar nominations and also expanded its theatrical run, adding nearly 2,900 new screens. Those two factors propelled Zero Dark Thirty to the top of the moviegoer's consciousness, granting it a commanding $24 million dollar gross and the title of first place at the weekend box office.

The Wayans brothers new ghostly comedy A Haunted House came in second place with a very decent showing of $18.8 million dollars. Made for an estimated budget of only $2.5 million, that gives the comedy a very respectful profit already in its first week of release.

Trailer #2: Evil Dead

So there's this remake of Evil Dead scheduled for release on April 13. Frankly, I haven't been giving it much thought; there's so many remakes of '80s horror movies these days, how does an updated version of Sam Raimi's scary debut make itself stand out from any of the others?

Well, this new version of Evil Dead is now standing out for me thanks to the new (and its second) trailer.

Patrick's 10 biggest movie disappointments of 2012

2012 is over and as is the custom for many of us, we look back and judge how the past 12 months fit into our lives. As the proprietor of a movie website, perhaps it's my job to step up and count the losses publically with you, to offer my opinion (for whatever it's worth) about how the year in film stacked up in my expectations.

I see many other sites and movie writers present their top 10 lists of movies. Myself, I'm not deluded enough to believe that I've seen enough movies to make an informed judgment about what movies are "the best". Maybe, one year when I've watched more than 40 or 50, I can offer my list of such.

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.
