Jesse Eisenberg Finally Comments For His Role Of Lex Luthor
During an interview for his film "The Double" Jesse Eisenberg finally shed some light on his much talked about role for the upcoming Batman Vs Superman film.Upon every film that he has been in he stated that the role would be something that you have never seen before out of him and it would be a very different Lex Luthor as well.He also mentioned that he didn't know the history as well as the group of people making the film but in that case he knew that they would make the right choice on where to take him with the character and what Eisenberg should do with it.He also did not want to mention either whether he would have hair or have the iconic bald look like Kevin Spacey had in the 2006 Superman Returns but since he is a bit younger then Spacey there is much speculation that he will keep the hair for now and it will sort of be an origin story to show everything that makes him who he is along with Clark and Bruce as well.
New Images Released For The Hunger Games:Mockingjay Shows Julianne Moore And Many More
Some new images were released for the next installment in the Hunger Games series with the first part of the Mockingjay book coming this November.One of the photos people are talking about is the addition of Julianne Moore as Alma Coin in the new still and it shows her looking strong in her country although it has that post apocalyptic feel to it.Another shot has Moore and the Phillip Seymour Hoffman just alongside each other which is a very good thing that they got enough of footage for him to finish out the series before his tragic death.The other additional shots were just of Beetee and Haymitch who are played by Jeffrey Wright and Woody Harrelson respectively.

Godzilla Eyes For 70 Million Dollar Weekend
With the midnight releases for the action remake Godzilla starting tonight the internet is buzzing with what the film might just make over the weekend with it not even being discussed that it will be the number 1 film of the week it is just an idea of what it will make overall.The film has gotten some overall positive reviews with some being mixed but I haven't heard of any being majorly bad I mean some have had some bad points in their reviews but at the same time their is always a positive and a negative to every movie so it is expected.The films budget is projected at 160 million and that it will need to cover what the 1998 film did which honestly won't be hard but if the reviews stick to what they are saying then it won't have a problem surpassing its earlier counterpart and will be the newer and loved version of the Godzilla films.
2 New Stills Have Released Showing The Batmobile
After a giant bomb was dropped that showed everybody Ben Affleck as Batman for Batman Vs Superman and while he was standing right next to the bat mobile the fans didn't really get a great look at the car as a whole but today 2 photos were leaked and it showed a view of the car without wheels and then another one of the bat mobile with the wheels attached and and it is a full on front view that is closer up and showing you the bat mobile in all of its glory.Now since it is has been a full week of Batman news it will be ok if we pull back on it for a bit until we see the Wonder Woman outfit and then get going on that but new stuff everyday on this will start to become like how The Amazing Spider Man 2 was and it will draw fatigue for something that doesn't come out until 2016.
Trent Reznor Calls David Fincher's Gone Girl A "Nastier Film Then Expected"
With this being another team up with Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross doing the score for Gone Girl.Reznor and Ross worked with Fincher on the score for The Social Network and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and both of those scores were high sellers upon their release.When they did finally ask Reznor about the film because Fincher showed him the film and Reznor said that the film was more "Darker and Nasty' then he thought and believed it would be and with the first trailer for the film being out and having Ben Affleck grabbing Oscar hype for his performance in it the idea of it being more layered and something that could be SO much better and could end up being worth the wait when the film is finally released because David Fincher never really disappoints when he puts out a film nowadays and with the team he has together with Ross and Reznor this is like the perfect match for a hat trick of 3 perfect films that he has made in Social Network,Dragon Tattoo and Gone Girl.
Rooney Mara Is Totally On Board For Another Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
Actress Rooney Mara has stated that whenever director David Fincher had free time within his busy schedule that she would be all in and on board to continue the story for the next installment of the The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series.She said if offered the role of Lisbeth again to start the series again she would say yes in a heartbeat and get the series going but it has been 4 long years since the release of the first film and with Fincher being busy as he has ever been with making his films and executive producing episodes of House Of Cards there is also the factor of getting back Daniel Craig as Mikael Blomkvist as well.But with Craig its hard because he is playing another little known character as well and still needs to make the 24th installment in that series as well because he has a contract with that too.Now since this year with the announcement of another Beverly Hills Cop and a new Power Rangers film I think that this will come along sometime I just hope its soon enough to the point where people still care about it and when the release date comes and people aren't like "Oh thats still happening?" because that would be a big bummer for the series if that happened.
