For months, we've known that arthouse shelters Skydance Pictures and Annapurna Pictures and big studio Paramount have had an eye to reboot the "Terminator" franchise with a new standalone trilogy before the rights reverted back to James Cameron. Arnold has talked openly about returning in some capacity, and there was even a date, June 26 in the very busy summer of 2015.

Now the studios have announced that they know who will lead battle of humans versus machines.

Alan Taylor, the director who made a name for himself bringing Westeros to life for HBO's "Game of Thrones" and who is making the jump to tentpole films with "Thor: The Dark World," will helmed the first installment of the new "Terminator" trilogy.

"Foxcatcher," a true-life story starring Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum, has only just begun to come into view, after getting set with Sony Classic Pictures and nailing down its December 20 release date, and now there are two more pictures featuring a nearly unrecognizable cast.

Both Carell and Ruffalo are ugging it up for "Foxcatcher," which is already earning some early Oscar buzz thanks to its director, Bennett Miller, who previously made "Capote" and "Moneyball." The former "Office" funny man has had the most work done. As you can see in the new photos, Carell is wearing a prosthetic nose.


The fun has officially started in the Great White North, and the crews from MTV News and Film.com will be bringing you updates throughout the Toronto International Film Festival.

To kick things off, Film.com has two reviews from highly anticipated movies: "Devil's Knot," Atom Egoyan's retelling of the West Memphis Three, and "Blue Ruin," a contemplative revenge thriller that wowed at Cannes in May.

Check them out after the jump!

Here's the thing about "Gravity."

Alfonso Cuarón's new movie, by all accounts, is phenomenal. Crowds at Telluride ate it up this week. Raves keep coming in. There will be even more from the Toronto International Film Festival. James Cameron said that it was the best space movie ever made, for Pete's sake.

And now there's a new, full-length trailer to convince you even further that Cuarón has made something truly special with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney.

But isn't anyone concerned that if the movie is too good that it might convince a future generation of astronauts to never get up there and space walk, in hopes of avoiding the very circumstance that Bullock's character finds herself in? Won't someone think of the future astronauts! (Oh, that's right. NASA funding isn't a thing. Never mind.)

Check out the latest, fantastic, and slightly spoiler-y trailer for "Gravity" after the jump!

Redditor morphinapg has updated his previous facial average of every Bruce Wayne to date to include Ben Affleck. As the top comment points out, "The most generic white person I have ever seen."

Also, find out who will face "The Poltergeist" in today's Dailies!


The recent casting of Ben Affleck in "Batman Vs. Superman" has turned the trailers for "Runner Runner," a seemingly standard crime drama with pop star-turned-actually-good-actor Justin Timberlake, into bizarrely fun watches, where you get to pretend that JT is squaring off against a corrupt Bruce Wayne.

Our own day dreams aside, the new preview for "Runner Runner," which comes to us from the director of "The Lincoln Lawyer" and the writer of "Rounders," gives a better idea of the mess that Timberlake's online gambler Richie Furst finds himself in.

After losing a huge online poker game that he thinks was rigged, Richie travels to the Caribbean to find the man who he believes wronged him. That's when he finds Ivan Block (Affleck), a dangerous gambling boss that enlists and then ensnares Richie in his scheme.

Jack Nicholson

Update: E! Online has word from NBC's Maria Shiver that Nicholson has "no current plans to retire."

Jack Nicholson, a star whose presence has felt like one of the few constants in Hollywood for the past five decades, has reportedly retired from acting.

RadarOnline.com is citing "film insiders" in its story that the 76-year-old actor has quietly stepped away from acting for good. The three-time Academy Award winner last appeared in James L. Brooks' "How Do You Know" with Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, and Owen Wilson.

The gossip site claims that the actor's memory loss has led him to decide to put acting behind him.




After several rumors, set photos, this teasing interview with Mark Wahlberg, and a recent interview with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, it seems that the Dinobots are actually, really, totally going to appear in "Transformers: Age of Extinction."

It makes sense, right? This is a series that is looking to kickstart a new trilogy with a new leading man. Wouldn't it be a good idea to bring in a few fan favorites? The Dinobots have been beloved members of the "Transformers" universe since the mid-1980s, and but are bringing in more characters that the hardcore fans are particularly attached to a good idea for series that hasn't been that concerned with that population from the beginning?

Star Trek

Simon Pegg is one of the too-rare comedic actors that can be just as funny off-screen as he is on it. His Twitter feed is a must-follow, and now a special feature from the "Star Trek Into Darkness" Blu-ray (via /Film) fills us in on what kind of high jinks the "World's End" actor was up to during his time on the Starship Enterprise.

The prank that Pegg played on just about every main cast member involved something called "neutron cream."

The story of neutron cream, or at least the one Pegg told the others on set, was that four dots needed to be applied to the face and two to each wrist in order to protect yourself from the potentially harmful sets of "Star Trek Into Darkness." Pegg would then devise creative ways to let them in on the secret, of course, only after they've applied the cream to their face.

Watch the special feature after the jump!
