Chris Evans

One of the most highly anticipated, but oddly elusive films of the past year is without a doubt the English-language debut from the director of "The Host" (monster, not aliens), Joon-ho Bong, "Snowpiercer."

The film stars Chris Evans, Tild Swinton, Jamie Bell, and Octavia Spencer as riders on a train that contains the last remaining survivors of a global warming experiment gone horribly, horribly wrong.

The first trailer for "Snowpiercer" just debuted for international markets, since it is still without a U.S. release date. Check out the preview below and let us know what you think.

Jamie Bell

With the 11-week shoot of Lars Von Trier's "Nymphomaniac" slated to begin tomorrow, two more actors have joined the cast of the upcoming erotic drama.

Both Jamie Bell and Connie Nielsen have joined the flick, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. There's no word yet on who they'll be playing, but we'd take a guess and say they're two people that the main character in the movie, played by Charlotte Gainsbourg, met during her "erotic life."

"Nymphomaniac" tells the story of a woman named Joe (Gainsboroug), a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who is found by an "old, charming bachelor" named Seligman (Stellan Skarsgard) after being beaten and left in a back alley. She then goes on to tell him the story of her life and erotic lifestyle from birth to age 50.

Have you seen the final "The Dark Knight Rises" trailer yet?! Wasn't it AMAZING? We were obviously on board from the beginning, but after that trailer, Batman is fighting "The Avengers" for a spot at the forefront of our minds, and we didn't think that was actually possible. "Prometheus" writer Damon Lindelof, who always takes to Twitter for his hilarious commentary, had plenty to say about the video.

"I'm thrilled to see that Tom Hardy's elocution lessons have paid off. #TheRainInSpainFallsMainlyOnTheBane," he wrote, alluding to how audiences can now understand Hardy's lines. He also imagined lines that would exist if he wrote the script, "I've buried enough Waynes. And has my Wayne Tree grown yet? No, Master Bruce, it has not." #IfIWroteDarkKnightRises" He finally begged us for a "TDKR" intervention, "Oh, God, please someone stop me. #ICantStopTheWayne." Never. Ever. It's too hilarious. Please continue!

But don't worry "Avengers" fans, May 1, 2012's Twitter-Wood also features Tom Hiddleston ringing in the NYSE bell with Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders really excited about Tim Horton's coffee and Mark Ruffalo at the Toronto Premiere!

Cillian Murphy has seen his fair share of end-of-the-world experiences. He came out of a coma mid-zombie apocalypse in "28 Days Later," and set out on a doomed journey to reignite the dying sun in "Sunshine."

While those movies take place on a much bigger scale, Murphy's latest effort, "Retreat," sees the actor trying to survive in a scaled-back version of the end of days.

Cillian Murphy is no stranger to the apocalypse. Having already survived an outbreak of a rage-fueled virus in "28 Days Later," the "Inception" and "Batman Begins" star is once again returning to a deadly wasteland in "Retreat," the Carl Tibbetts-directed thriller from Samuel Goldwyn Films hitting theaters on October 21, 2011.

Murphy stars alongside Thandie Newton as Martin and Kate, a couple who seclude themselves on an isolated island in the aftermath of a great personal tragedy. But their quiet journey for peace and introspection is rudely interrupted by the arrival of Jack (Jamie Bell), a mysterious stranger who washes ashore with dark tidings: if he's to be believed, a devastating airborne disease has broken out and is sweeping across Europe.

In this exclusive red-band clip from "Retreat," watch as Martin and Kate do their best to literally keep their heads on straight as Jack threatens their lives in the face of great terror.

Warning: the following clip is NSFW due to graphic language.

"Retreat" arrives in theaters on October 21, 2011.

Bruce Campbell"Oz: The Great And Powerful" just got a heck of a lot more exciting now that Bruce Campbell has announced he's been cast in it.

"I. Am. In. Oz. Sam Raimi refuses to tell me what character I will portray. Just know that the role is PIVOTAL," the "Burn Notice" actor tweeted. Considering James Franco has already been cast as the titular wizard-to-be and Campbell likely isn't playing one of the female witches, our guess is he plays some sort of mentor to Oz. Or we could be totally surprised and he'll end up playing a Munchkin or flying monkey. Regardless, we're thrilled by this casting news.

Check out the rest of Hollywood's casting updates after the jump!

When the world was first introduced to Channing Tatum in 2006 with "She's The Man," I don't think any of us would ever have expected to condone, let alone like, a trailer starring him as Roman centurion from 140 A.D. But the fact that Tatum manages to maintain a convincing Roman accent throughout the entirety of the "The Eagle" trailer definitely earns him points in his favor. And with co-stars Donald Sutherland, Jamie Bell and Mark Strong to support him, our excitement factor for this flick just increased exponentially.

"The Eagle" follows Tatum as Marcus Aquila, who is trying to discover the truth behind his father's legion, the Ninth, that disappeared beyond Hadrian's Wall 20 years earlier. Enlisting the help of the slave Esca (Bell), Marcus travels beyond the wall to try to find the lost Legion and recover their missing eagle standard. Read More...

Tatum will star as Marcus Aquila, sent by Rome to Britain to figure out what happened to the missing Ninth Legion. (The Hollywood Reporter)

-- Even though Vin Diesel and director Rob Cohen were going to re-team for "xXx: The Return of Xander Cage," Cohen has since taken on other projects and the extreme sports super-spy simply can't fit into his schedule. Diesel will instead receive direction from "Invincible" helmer Ericson Core. (The Hollywood Reporter) Read More...
