If you tore through Goosebumps paperbacks with literary abandon as a young reader, then Sony Rewards is cooking up an especially spooky treat just for you.

Did you know there's a movie based on the bestselling bite-sized horror tales by R.L. Stine?

It's true, Goosebumps is finally coming to the silver screen next year.  In order to whip tried-and-true fans into a frenzy, Sony's launching an interactive contest that combines the best of social media, trivia, memes, and fan art for competitive shenanigans that will rewards the biggest 'Bumps fans with unique prizes.

Foxcatcher is going to completely change how audiences see Steve Carell and Channing Tatum.

Both actors are already household names, but both also occupy curiously specific niches. 

Carell is the genially comic leading man capable of unhinged goofiness (Anchorman), family-friendliness (Despicable Me), and undeniably funny roles that he gives some depth (The 40 Year Old Virgin).  Tatum is the beefcake action hero (G.I. Joe) and romantic figure (The Vow) who has also shown comedic chops (22 Jump Street) and hinted at real dramatic depth (Magic Mike).

In Foxcatcher, both established actors pull the pins on their respective images with career-best performances that have been earning ecstatic awards season praise for months now.

Directed by Bennett Miller (Moneyball), the movie tells the true story of Mark Schultz, a former Olympic wrestler who receives an invite from the fabulously wealthy John du Pont to train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics on du Pont's massive, old money estate.  Both men are driven to achieve sporting glory: du Pont for some weird, Oedipal reasons and Mark, to escape the shadow of his celebrated older brother Dave.  Before long, the relationship between Mark and du Pont gets strange and self-destructive, which isn't helped when Dave begins coaching du Pont's wrestling team.

Tatum plays Mark Schultz, while Carell plays du Pont and Mark Ruffalo also makes a strong impression as Dave Schultz.

IAR Managing Editor Jami Philbrick was on hand at the Los Angeles press day for Foxcatcher, where Steve Carell and Channing Tatum thoughtfully discussed their roles, hopping between genres, cinematic wrestling, and playing real people in this presumptive Oscar nominee.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice introduces a whole mess of superheroes to DC's nascent cinematic universe, and the first DC movie to follow it, Suicide Squad, is doing the same with supervillains.

As the ambitious comic book project casts its major roles, we keep learning about new bad guys who have made the cut.  The latest is Deadshot, the expert marksman Jai Courtney is in talks to play.

The very first trailer for The Cobbler gives a decent idea just why the movie has taken such a beating from critics.
