Halle Berry's "Catwoman" has been the butt of jokes since it premiered in 2004, but how many people out there have actually seen it? Not many apparently, because it took one Redditor to point out that the movie contains the single worst basketball scene in the history of film.
If "Catwoman" had been seen by the throngs that openly mock it, this scene would be better known and add a ton of fuel to the fire of fanboy hatred. Still, even nine years on, the sequence which features Berry and Benjamin Bratt doing something that could never be mistake as a "game" or "fun," plays like anything but a game of one-on-one basketball. It looks more like you showed two people a 15-second clip of a middle school game, and told them to do something vaguely similar and make it all look like a bad '90s music video.

Someone is making a grab for Ian McKellen's role as Gandalf in "The Hobbit." While there will never be another Gandalf in our mind, this person makes a pretty good case.

When the first trailer for "Pacific Rim" hit, there were essentially two kinds of reactions. There was the response from those familiar with Guillermo del Toro's work in movies like "Hellboy" and "Pan's Labyrith" who were looking forward to a new movie from the Mexican director after a number of false starts. Then there were those who thought "Pacific Rim" looked like a "Transformers" rip-off. (This group may or may not have included Michael Bay.)
But now the all-important second preview have debuted, coming in the form of the footage screened last month at WonderCon in Anaheim, and it leaves little doubt that "Pacific Rim" is anything but a "Transformers" clone.
There's so much awesomeness packed into two-and-a-half minute preview that we've listed the top five most badass moments.
In the months since the announcement of "Star Wars: Episode VII," Carrie Fisher has seemingly made a habit out of trolling fans eager for updates about the J.J. Abrams film. The return of Fisher, Mark Hamill, and Harrison Ford is, by this point, an assumption many are making, but without an official announcement from Disney, we're left to decode cryptic and often confused statements from the cast.
Fisher made her latest quasi-confessional at the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo as she spoke with some diehard "Star Wars" fans.
Much like the statement Fisher gave to Palm Beach Illustrated in March, she didn't seem to think much of it when she, according to the Calgary Herald, hinted to the crowd that she is reprising her role as Princess Leia.

Well that was easy.
Zach Braff's Kickstarter campaign for his "Garden State" follow-up "I Wish I Were Here" has cruised past its goal of $2 million after less than a week. Braff took to Twitter to thank his supporters saying, "Dear Fans, I cannot believe your unbelievable support for WIWH. I wish I could hug each and every one of you."
Braff's Kickstarter follows in the wake of the smash "Veronica Mars" movie campaign which pulled in $5,702,153 from 91,585 backers. It was the fastest project to reach $1 million (4 hours), the fastest project to reach $2 million (11 hours), the all-time highest funded film project on Kickstarter, and the most backers ever. "I Wish I Were Here" isn't quite the rousing record-breaker that "Mars" was, but it's easily cleared its goal and is officially in smooth-sailing territory.
The footage and images from Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling's second collaboration "Only God Forgives" that have started to trickle out ahead of a July 19 release in the U.S. have painted a picture in a much darker shade of neon than their first work together, "Drive."
Yes, Gosling will be back as the silent, violent type in a film shot in Refn's impeccable style, but as the first three clips (via The Playlist) from "Only God Forgives" demonstrate, this is a more violent, more psychosexual movie than "Drive" ever was.

In "Peeples," Craig Robinson has to do what just about every boyfriend in history has dreaded, meeting his girlfriend's parents, but the Peeples aren't any family. They're the "Chocolate Kennedys" as Robinson's character describes them.
"Peeples" tells the story of that meeting and how very, very wrong it goes. If Robinson's character wants to win the hand of his girlfriend, played by "Django Unchained" actress Kerry Washington, he'll have to impress her federal judge father, played by David Alan Grier.

While there may not be all that much to go off of for the upcoming "Star Wars VII" as of yet, it seems as if that won't be the case once the film actually goes into production. "I think the whole issue of confidentiality is gonna be fascinating as we move into making the movie," states Lucasfilm President Katleen Kennedy in a recent interview with ScreenSlam. "If we're shooting anything outside, it's almost impossible to not have things end up on the Internet. So my feeling is, you need to embrace that, especially with the fans around something like 'Star Wars.'"
It's good to know that we'll be kept in the loop as far as "Star Wars VII" plans go, but when exactly will we start getting our answers? In specific, which characters will be making an appearance in the latest "Star Wars" trilogy? I'm not talking about Luke or Leia. I mean those memorable minor characters, like Grand Moff Tarkin; who was the chief overseer of the Death Star in "A New Hope."
Over the weekend, the White House Correspondents Dinner took place in Washington, D.C., and as is the tradition, it tends to be one of the more light-hearted events in the nation's capitol. Even the Presidents gets loose and cracks a few jokes.
Two of the evening's special guests were the men behind "Lincoln," Steven Spielberg and Daniel Day-Lewis, and it just so happened that President Obama had seen a behind-the-scenes featurette on the Academy Award-winning director's next film, starring Day-Lewis.

"Iron Man 3" is already a hit film, and it hasn't shown on a single screen for U.S. audiences yet. That's because Marvel's follow-up to their mega-hit, "The Avengers," opened early in dozens of foreign markets this past weekend and took in $195 million. To put that sum into perspective, "The Avengers" had only made $185 at this point last year.
Back in this country, however, things were much slower with the top grossing film of the weekend, Michael Bay's "Pain & Gain," only taking in $20 million. The crime comedy starring Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson eked out a victory over last week's champ, "Oblivion," which added $17 million to it domestic total.
Next weekend is when the sparks begin to fly. That's when "Iron Man 3" hits the U.S. "The Avengers" took in $209 million in its opening weekend, so we'll have to wait and see how Robert Downey Jr. can fare on his own.
