Freetown

Synopsis: Caught in the middle of a brutal civil war, six Liberian missionaries in Monrovia flee the widespread violence in their native country. Their destination: Freetown, Sierra Leone. With the help of local church member Phillip Abubakar, the missionaries make the difficult journey, only to have their troubles compounded by a rebel fighter bent on killing one of their own.

Unlike Anastasia Steele, Sam Taylor-Johnson has managed to free herself from an abusive, controlling relationship: the Fifty Shades of Grey director has formally announced that she won't return to direct Fifty Shades Darker or Fifty Shades Freed.

Captain America: Civil War kicks off production in a matter of days, so Marvel needs to find a new Spider-Man lickety-split.

The wallcrawler is poised to make his MCU debut in next summer's superhero slugfest.  Even if his appearance is just as a cameo, which we suspect is the case, it's still the introduction of an all-new Peter Parker, and the actor playing Spidey is likely to wear the webs for years and years to come.

We already heard that Marvel and Sony's latest Spider-Man will be young, still very much in high school, but what's surprising is that they're looking at actual teenagers to play him.

Rather than the usual practice of hiring a 25 year-old to play a high school student, Marvel is auditioning real youngsters like 16 year-old Mateus Ward.

When Jennifer Lawrence first dipped her toe into a pool of blue body paint as Mystique in X-Men: First Class, she wasn't yet Katniss Everdeen, the highest-grossing female action hero of all time.  She also hadn't won an Academy Award and become one of the biggest, most popular movie stars on the planet.

Five years after first shifting shape as Raven Darkholme, Lawrence will close out her run on the franchise with next year's X-Men: Apocalypse.

Like Ethan Hunt in a hot pursuit, Paramount Pictures is wasting no time.  Just yesterday, the studio seemed to empty its Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation promotional clip, unveiling the title, a teaser trailer, poster, and first-look images. 

Turns out there was one round left in the clip, however, because now, less than twenty-four hours later, the full theatrical trailer for Mission: Impossible 5 has smashed online, and it's a doozy.

While the world surfs the Avengers: Age of Ultron hype-wave, Marvel Studios is waxing up its surfboard for next summer's superhero slugfest, Captain America: Civil War.

Filming on the sequel is set commence within the next two weeks, kicking off in Atlanta, Georgia by April 1st and marking the start of a production that will stop by Puerto Rico and Berlin.  As the filmmakers slide through the final stretch of pre-production, some fascinating details have emerged from the sequel.

Over the last five years, one of the biggest studios and some the highest-profile shot-callers in Hollywood have struggled mightily to make a big-budget, Americanized version of one of the influential anime classic that introduced Japanese animation to huge swaths of the west.

Yet for half a decade now, Warner Bros. has failed to take the live-action Akira from a project to actual movie.  Having gone through three directors, a legion of potential A-list leading men, and a cadre of writers, as well as a small pickup truck full of money, the Lenardo DiCaprio-produced remake is no closer to happening.

It's been a tumultuous process, one that has come this close to production multiple times, but director Jaume Collet-Serra gave the distinct impression that Akira is dead last week.  Asked if there's been any progress on the adaptation, which a year ago he hoped to make his next project.  "No, no. There’s nothing," he told Collider in an interview promoting Run All Night, the movie he ended up making instead.

"It’s a Warner Bros. question," said Collet-Serra, sounding more than a little resigned to Akira's fate.

Are you wearing socks? 

Well prepare to have them knocked off by this new Avengers: Age of Ultron extended TV spot, which is basically a minute straight of barn-burning new footage from Marvel's super-sequel.

Like Judge Dredd himself, Alex Garland is acting as judge, jury, and executioner, and the scraggly criminal he's sentencing to death is Dredd 2.

Actually, that's not quite true; Garland, who wrote and produced the 2012 take on Mega City One's finest lawman, is just the messenger, but the message is simple and brutal.  A Dredd sequel is dead, and it was the audience that executed it.
