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.

Disney developing a new Rocketeer movie

After buying out Marvel Comics, and by way of possession, Marvel Studios, Walt Disney Pictures is in the superhero movie business big time. Their shareholders are feeling pretty good about the studio releasing the billion dollar Avengers movie, and Marvel Studios is moving ahead with its second wave of feature films. All signs point to continued success, and uncovering new ways for Disney to crosspromote Marvel's pantheon of recognizable heroes in all of the company's many different divisions.

So why would Disney want to dust off a non-Marvel superhero project like The Rocketeer and reboot it for a new generation?

He also wrote the script for The Specials, a low-budget comedy about a dysfunctional superhero family.

Avengers 2 movie gets release date

May 6 was the date that Marvel's The Avengers movie arrived and took the world by storm. As I write these words, The Avengers has grossed over $1.4 billion dollars worldwide and over $600 million alone from North American theaters.

Last week one big piece of the puzzle concerning the inevitable Avengers sequel fell into place as Marvel Studios announced the return of writer/director Joss Whedon for Avengers 2. Marvel had already set in ink the planned release dates for their second wave of superhero movies:

Eastwood, Ford, Cage, Snipes wanted for Expendables 3

If the producer of The Expendables series has his way, we will see even more legendary action movie stars participating in the next installment of the film franchise. According to Expendables producer Avi Lerner, they are talking right now to Clint Eastwood about playing a part in Expendables 3. "We've got a character in mind for him," Lerner told the Total Film outlet.

And that's not all the heroes Lerner wants for The Expendables 3. They are also talking to Harrison Ford and Wesley Snipes to play characters in the next movie, although Snipes would have to wait until his current prison obligations are finished before participating.

The Bourne Legacy dethrones the Dark Knight

Even with a new leading man, The Bourne Legacy took off and captured the #1 spot at the box office this weekend. Jeremy Renner benefitted from having his mug in The Avengers, and it worked as audiences were attracted to see what he could do stepping into Matt Damon's shoes. The Bourne Legacy opened to the tune of $40.2 million dollars.

Will Ferrell and Zach Galifinakis also drew the curious to their new comedy The Campaign, which opened in second spot with $27.4m.

After being in top spot for three weekends, The Dark Knight Rises fell to #3 ($19.5m new, $390.1m total).

Meryl Streep's new comedy Hope Springs debuted in #4 with an opening of $15.6m.

UPDATE: Ben Affleck approached to direct WB's Justice League movie

Warner Bros. seems intent on making its live-action Justice League movie. When the studio jettisoned their first creative incarnationfor the pic three years ago, at the time it seemed that WB wanted to pursue developing stand-alone superhero tentpoles like Christopher Nolan's Batman films, the Green Lantern movie that starred Ryan Reynolds and possible Superman, Wonder Woman and Flash movies. They also took a stab at a western, Jonah Hex, which bombed hard in the summer of 2010.

First official image of Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln

He's wearing a beard! After a year of keeping it as quiet as possible, the first official look at Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln has finally been released.

Day-Lewis is portraying the 16th President of the United States in Lincoln, the next movie directed by Steven Spielberg. Lincoln is set for release on November 9, and is going to be one of the fall's big dramas no matter which way you slice it. And with an Oscar-winning actor portraying the Prez, people will be watching closely to see if the notoriously method acting chops of DDL warrant any interest when awards season starts in full.

The Dark Knight Rises tops box office for third weekend in a row

The latest Bat-film beat the remake of Total Recall this weekend at theaters. For the third weekend in a row The Dark Knight Rises was the number one movie in theaters, taking in an estimated $36.4 million dollars. That brings the movie's total domestic gross up to $354.6 million dollars. With another $378 million bucks earned from international venues, TDKR has a worldwide gross of $733 million dollars.

Len Wiseman's remake of Total Recall fell into the number two slot with a so-so gross of $26 million dollars. The movie is estimated to have cost its makers $125 million dollars, so a showing in the black for the new Recall is unlikely to come just from its domestic ticket sales.

The 2012 list of Sight & Sound's top 50 movies of all time

Every year 'round this time the British Film Institute compiles a list of the top 50 movies of all time, as selected by a who's who of film critics from around the globe. Movies go up the list and some movies fall down; the list changes as do the ever-changing likes of the critics, who also rotate in and out of the inclusive group.

This year in their 2012 Sight & Sound list there has been a dramatic change: the number one movie deemed the most culturally significant by film critics has been dethroned. That movie is Orson Welles' Citizen Kane which had been voted the top film for 50 years. Now it's fallen to the second-highest spot.

Prometheus sequel steps closer to becoming a reality

In the wake of a movie's release, there are two ways to judge whether it was a success: how much money the film made and how well received it was. In the case of Prometheus, the prequel to Ridley Scott's Alien, the answer to both questions could be summed up in one word: "OK".

Dark Knight Rises composer Hans Zimmer writes song for victims of Aurora shooting

In the aftermath of the Aurora theater shooting, the filmmakers behind The Dark Knight Rises are coming together to help. Warner Bros. has donated money and deferred publizing the box office results of their Batman film out of respect to the shooting victims and their families. Batman star Christian Bale flew into Aurora on his own initiative to visit the recovering victims in hospital, and DC Comics has delayed the publication of their latest issue of Batman.
