Dominic Cooper

James Bond's 50th anniversary year might be over, but the obsession with his story isn't. In fact, a four-part mini-series based on 007 scribe Ian Fleming is in the works, and a leading man has already been picked to play the main character.

Variety is reporting that Dominic Cooper has been tapped to play Fleming. The mini-series is tentatively being called "Fleming" and will air on the UK channel Sky Atlantic.

Game of Thrones

Winter is coming, and this time it's bringing along a new cast of characters. In addition to Jon Snow, Rob Stark and Daenerys Targaryen, we'll be meeting Mance Rayder, the King Beyond the Wall, in the upcoming third season of "Game of Thrones."

Ciarin Hinds has been cast as Mance, and fans get their first look at his portrayal of the character in a new behind-the-scenes video blog for the hit HBO fantasy series. Hinds can be seen talking with Kit Harington's Jon Snow, seemingly for the first time. "You're Ned Stark's bastard," he says in the clip.

Jason Statham sure knows how to start a relationship out on the right foot. In an exclusive new clip from his upcoming movie "Parker," Statham tests whether he can trust Jennifer Lopez the only way he knows how: By telling her to strip.

Of course, he has a valid reason for asking her to take off her clothes: He wants to see if she has a wire on her. Still, the demand doesn't seem to go over too well judging by the expression on J.Lo's face.

Game of thrones

Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams and Isaac Hempstead-Wright made quite an impact when they sang the opening credits sequence for the "Game of Thrones" season one DVD, but this time they're back with one better. For the season two DVD, the trio of Stark children have decided to lay down some sick beats for their own rendition of the title song. Didn't you know there's beat boxing in Westeros?

The result is pretty amazing. Not only are they beat boxing, but the three child actors also (sort of) narrate the opening credits. If we're not mistaking, that's Turner -- aka Sansa Stark -- rapping for the majority of the video, though even she admits that she isn't the best at it.

"I can't rap, but I'm going to say something in a big cap," she sings as Williams cackles in the background. Watch the entire video after the jump, and love your life just a little bit more today.

Skyfall

It's been a very special year for the James Bond franchise. 007 turned 50 years old, "Skyfall" made over $1 billion and now the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has revealed it's honoring our favorite British secret agent with a special tribute at the 85th Academy Awards.

The Academy has announced the news in a press release. Thus far no details have been revealed about what the tribute will be beyond the fact it will involve "a special sequence."

"We are very happy to include a special sequence on our show saluting the Bond films on their 50th birthday," Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said in a statement. "Starting with ‘Dr. No’ back in 1962, the 007 movies have become the longest-running motion picture franchise in history and a beloved global phenomenon."

Wes Anderson

The full ensemble cast for "The Grand Budapest Hotel" has been assembled, and it's just as impressive as we've come to expect in a Wes Anderson movie. In addition to a cast of Anderson regulars, newcomers like Jude Law and Saoirse Ronan also are going to be featured.

Anderson confirmed the array of actors in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter. With his latest film, "Moonrise Kingdom," being considered an awards season contender, Anderson seems to understand that his next film has some big shoes to fill.

Smurfs

The Smurfs have returned, and this time they're getting naughty.

The first trailer for "The Smurfs 2" has hit the web, and shows the introduction of new, bad creatures called the Naughties. Hank Azaria's Gargamel is back and trying to defeat the Smurfs, so he's decided to create his own small, Smurf-like creations to take them down. The Naughties, voiced by Christina Ricci and JB Smoove, seem like they're able to do the unthinkable: Make Smurfette go bad.

Watch the trailer after the jump!

Darlings

Harry who? Daniel Radcliffe is showing off a whole new look in a new image from the upcoming indie "Kill Your Darlings," and we love how far he's come from his "Harry Potter" days.

"Kill Your Darlings" will make its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, and the website for the fest has a new image from the film. It shows Radcliffe as a young Allen Ginsberg, Dane DeHaan as Lucien Carr and Jack Huston as Jack Kerouac, but its Radcliffe who disappears most into his character.

The Mummy

Bad news, remake-haters of the world: Len Wiseman's planned reboot of "The Mummy" is still happening. Even worse, it's not going to have anything to do with the Brendan Fraser film series, though it will still keep its name.

"It’s horror. It's epic. It’s more of a modern-day version of what would happen if we came across a mummy in our world today. It is pretty fascinating," Wiseman told Movieweb in a recent interview.

The Hunger Games

"The Hunger Games" might not have been the top grossing or most acclaimed movie of the year, but it was the film that people cared about the most.

Google has released a list of its top trends for 2012, and "The Hunger Games" came out on top of the movies category. It makes sense, too: There was plenty of hype leading up to the March release of "The Hunger Games," with many positing that it could be the next "Twilight." It remains to be seen if the film series will have the same sort of staying power that "The Twilight Saga" did, but we'd argue that it has lived up to its expectations thus far.
