Zuckuss

By Ryan Rigley

Now that production on "Star Wars VII' is starting to heat up, the flood gates have been opened for rumors a plenty regarding the film. Last Wednesday, Bleeding Cool intercepted a casting breakdown for the movie revealing seven brand new characters; late-teen female, young twenty-something male, late twenty-something male, seventy-something male, second young female, forty-something male, and thirty-something male.

While there may not be any character names revealed thus far, judging by the casting breakdown it's fairly safe to say that the previous rumor of Jaina and Jacen Solo being the main focus of the new trilogy is false. Han and Leia's twin children may not be appearing in "Star Wars VII" after all, but we can't help but wonder what memorable characters from the original trilogy will be showing up. Take Zuckuss for example, the Gand bounty hunter that briefly appears in "Empire Strikes Back."

Catching Fire

By Amelia Mularz

In a baffling display of human emotion, teenagers seem really excited about something in the future. More specifically, they're, "AHHH SO EXCITED" about the upcoming Hunger Games flick, "Catching Fire."

Teenagers, who are widely regarded as the surliest beings on the planet, typically exhibit sourpuss expressions and an affliction for loitering in public places, like local Taco Bells. Their interest in music, literature, and cinema can be summed up with the single word, "whatever."

Maddox

At the New York City premiere of "World War Z," Brad Pitt revealed that his son, Maddox Jolie-Pitt, will make his feature film debut alongside his dad in the new zombie horror film opening this weekend. In his cameo role, Maddox plays a very short-lived Zombie!

"He gets shot in the head," Pitt explained to reporters at E! News. "He gets shot multiple times... I don't know what that says about me as a parent."

With parents as well-versed in high intensity action movies as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, it comes as no surprise that their eldest son is ready to take his first step into the Hollywood limelight. In fact, this story sounds very similar to that of power couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith's son, and current "After Earth" star, Jaden Smith. It turns out the two child stars have more in common than you'd think! Check out our list below!

World War Z

By Tara Fowler

"World War Z" is upon us: Are you prepared? Probably not, huh? Well, here are eight basic facts about surviving in this brave new world, but I highly suggest you refer to Max Brooks' "Zombie Survival Guide" for the full picture. You're lazy, you say? Too bad. You read or you die. It's that simple.

Yesterday, we lost one of our very best actors, James Gandolfini, who died of an alleged heart attack while on vacation in Italy at the age of 51. Gandolfini will always be best known for his role on "The Sopranos," but a scene in "True Romance" perfectly captures everything he brought to the screen.

The scene, which was written by Quentin Tarantino and co-stars Patricia Arquette, is both horrifying and dark humorous in its brutality, and Gandolfini is pitch perfect as the thug hired to find the stolen cocaine.

Gandolfini's legacy will continue to live out on the screen in a scenes like the one above. Share your favorite James Gandolfini moments in the comments below.

Dawn of the Dead

Depending on where your opinion of "Man of Steel" lies, you may have spent the past week singing the praises of Zack Snyder for being the director to finally get Superman right. His take on the last son of Krypton is certainly worth discussing, but another one of his movies, his first, deserves a second look this week for an entirely unrelated reason.

In light of Brad Pitt's "World War Z" hitting screens this week, it's worth remembering that Snyder's 2004 remake of "Dawn of the Dead" is the best modern zombie movie.

Star Wars

By Ryan Rigley

Now that "Star Trek Into Darkness" is finally out in the universe, director J. J. Abrams can finally focus on a different universe all together: the Star Wars universe. Last week, Schmoes Know released the highly-sought after potential plot synopsis for "Star Wars VII" that was apparently intercepted from Bad Robot Productions. "Two 17 year old twins, a girl and a boy, are trained by their uncle Luke to be the greatest Jedi’s in the galaxy," states the alleged plot synopsis. "Problems arise when the male twin turns to the dark side."

This, of course, alludes to both Jaina Solo and Jacen Solo being the focus of the new trilogy; two characters made popular by the Star Wars Expanded Universe. While this information makes heaps of sense, we can't help but wonder how accurate these reports really are. We also can't help but wonder which minor characters from the original trilogy will be making the leap over to the new. Take Garindan for example, the Kubaz spy who sells out Skywalker and the gang in "A New Hope."

Man of Steel

By Rachel Samples

On June 14th, the world will be saved...again. "Man of Steel," the latest superhero film by Zack Snyder, director of "Watchmen" and "300," features a new face to star as Superman: 30-year-old Henry Cavill. With slicked-back hair and thick rimmed glasses, you might not even realize he is Superman, or better yet, British.

Along with being made of steel, Cavill is best known as being one of the sexiest Brits alive. He is the first British actor to score the coveted role of Superman, the ultimate American hero. If a Brit can make it as an American hero, which American actors and actresses would make the cut as British heroes?

We've decided to cast some familiar Americans as British hero roles, along with the villains he or she would face. Check out our picks after the jump!

Star Wars

By Amelia Mularz

"Dahling, don't forget the opera glasses, and do put on a tie. If we're going to watch Will Smith battle zombie ex-presidents for control of the White House, we need to look quite fetching."

This is the future, according to George Lucas. No, not a zombie apocalypse led by Herbert Hoover and Richard Nixon (though we'd love to see what that'd look like), but a future where going to the movies will be comparable to going to the opera or a Broadway show. It's a dark, dark future where a ticket to the big summer blockbuster could cost you $50, $100, maybe even $150.
