Snow White And The Huntsman is the fairest of them all in the US06/06/2012
Snow White And The Huntsman has beaten all competition to claim the top position on the US Box Office. Universal's take on the fairy-tale rushed to the top, overtaking Men In Black III and The Avengers.
Taking just over $56million in its opening weekend, the fourth highest debut in the US this year, Snow White And The Huntsman forced Men In Black III to land in second, while Marvel Avengers Assemble reassembled in third.
Peter Berg's explosive Battleship sunk to fourth, The Dictator moved bunkers to fifth, and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel upgraded rooms to six.
What To Expect When You're Expecting waited for delivery in seventh, Dark Shadows sunk further into the black in eighth and Chernobyl Diaries stayed in ninth.
The only other debut over the weekend was chronicle of the Cristeros War, For Greater Glory, which arrived in tenth.
Prometheus has landed in the UK top spot06/06/2012
Ridley Scott's Sci-Fi adventure Prometheus has landed in the top spot of the UK Box Office chart, seeing off Snow White And The Huntsman's debut weekend.
The fairytale flick was no competition for Scott's alien thriller, and so found itself in second, definitely not the fairest of them all - but still a great achievement for Charlize Theron who stars in both.
Men In Black III moved down from first into third, Marvel Avengers Assemble regrouped in fourth, and The Dictator switched bunkers for fifth.
What To Expect When You're Expecting was overdue in sixth, Top Cat - The Movie wasn't the top cat as it premiered in seventh, while American Pie: Reunion continued to party in eighth.
Ken Loach's The Angel's Share arrived in ninth while Moonrise Kingdom scouted out tenth.
Sam Jackson gunning for Robocop07/06/2012
The Avengers may be stamping their authority in box offices around the world, but Nick Fury himself, Samuel L Jackson, is reportedly on board another big project after signing up to Jose Padhila's Robocop reboot.
The Killing's Joel Kinnaman is down for lead duties as Alex Murphy, who is brought back from the brink as the lean, mean fighting machine.
And Jackson will join Gary Oldman, who features in the other monster franchise this summer, The Dark Knight Rises.
Bay to sign off with Transformers 407/06/2012
Prepare yourselves for some shocking news, for it would seem that we are all in store for at least another instalment in the Transformers franchise. But as if that wasn't enough, explosive director Michael Bay has announced that the follow up to Dark Of The Moon will be his last in the Robots In Disguise mould, though others could well step in for future movies.
And if that wasn't jaw-dropping enough, the man behind The Rock and Bad Boys has created total Bay-hem by suggesting to the Los Angeles Times that there will be a whole new cast in place for the next one.
Model and all round hottie Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is not believed to be in line for a return, while Shia LeBeouf reportedly feels he has "nothing new to contribute" - though some could argue that was the case for the last two films!
Either way, expect more of Optimus and the gang on 29th June, 2014.
Russo Bros up for Cap 2?07/06/2012
With superheroes very much the talk of the town, eyes have now turned on the sequel to Captain America. After the colourful lycra-clad superhero held his own in Joss Whedon's Marvel Avengers Assemble, momentum has gained in finding him a new vehicle of his very own - only this time set in the modern day.
Brothers Joe and Anthony Russo, the chaps behind comedy You, Me And Dupree, are currently in talks with the studio, while scribes Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are returning to write the screenplay.
The follow up to Captain America is scheduled for 4th April 2014.
Emma Watson wants to sail with Noah08/06/2012
It looks as if tickets to ride on Noah's ark are selling like hot cakes at the moment, and it's not just because of the impending flood. Darren Aronofsky's telling of the biblical tale has already secured Russell Crowe and Logan Lerman, and Emma Watson is reportely hankering to get herself on board.
Crowe is set to play the title role, while Lerman and Great Expectations' Douglas Booth will play his sons, Ham and Shem. Deadline reports that if Watson signs a deal she'll play Ila, a young woman who starts a relationship with Shem.
The role of Noah's wife is also still up for grabs with rumours that Jennifer Connelly is being considered for it, and Variety reporting that Julianne Moore is also in talks.
Liev Shreiber is looking likely to play Noah's arch-nemesis - and we're guessing it's not in a boat-building competition.
The script comes from Aronofsky and Hugo writer John Logan, and looks set to start shooting in New York and Iceland at the beginning of August.
Snow White Fairytale lives on with David Koepp08/06/2012
Well, no one ever said that Snow White was easy to keep down. Just days after Snow White And The Huntsman stormed the US box office, Universal are reportedly putting things in place for a sequel - poor K Stew, and we thought she was done with franchises!
The first stage of the process is getting the budget together to get writer David Koepp to draft a script. David Koepp's a big name in the industry, he wrote the script for Jurassic Park and Panic Room, and the idea that he'll be involved with the sequel has been circulating since April.
Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth are already locked in on a two-movie deal, though director Rupert Sanders isn't a given.
So we'll just have to wait to see if Snowy will live happily-ever-after.
Madagascar 3 is America's most wanted as it tops the US Box Office11/06/2012
Madagascar 3: Europe's most wanted topped the US Box Office this weekend, raking in a whopping $60 million.
The animated adventure saw Ridley Scott's Prometheus land in second in its debut weekend, with a mere $50million.
Snow White And The Huntsman moved from first position into third, while MIB III made way to fourth, and Marvel Avengers Assembled in fifth.
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel decided to extend their stay in sixth, What To Expect When You're Expecting was overdue as it stayed in seventh and Battleship sank from fourth to eighth.
The Dictator lost his hold on power as he slipped into ninth, and Moonrise Kingdom rounded off the charts as it climbed the ladder from thirteen to tenth.
Thor Blimey! Zachary Levi to replace Josh Dallas11/06/2012
It must be a casting director's worst nightmare, an actor has already made a part his own and then pulls out of the second movie because of schedule conflicts! Josh Dallas, who plays Thor's Fandral, is skipping shooting the sequel because he's committed to work on hit US fantasy drama Once Upon A Time.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Marvel aren't missing a beat in replacing the actor and the man they're currently in talks with to step into Fandral's shoes is none other than Chuck's Zachary Levi.
You could say that Zachary signing a deal is meant to be, as he was meant to play the part in the original movie but had to pull out because of his own scheduling conflicts with Chuck. Now, he'll be joining the cast, which includes Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins and Tom Hiddleston in Asgard.
Game Of Thrones director Alan Taylor is planning to start shooting next month.
Prometheus has the answers once again12/06/2012
In its second week in the chart, Ridley Scott's Prometheus hit the afterburners and stayed one step ahead of the competition after securing the top spot once again. The movie held off a resurgent Men In Black III in two, while the magic of Charlize Theron's other film, Snow White And The Huntsman, was starting to fade as it slipped down to three.
Elsewhere chiller The Pact spooked its way to fourth, while Marvel Avengers Assemble continued their assault on the box office in fifth.
Top Cat was definitely not the boss in sixth, while Sacha Baron Cohen's The Dictator fell from grace to seventh, with baby blockbuster What To Expect When You're Expecting well past its due date in eight.
Gritty newcomer Ill Manors opened at nine in its debut week, while veteran Ken Loach's The Angel's Share rounded out the top ten.
Ray Winstone on board for Noah12/06/2012
While we doubt that any of the characters in the biblical tale of Noah spoke with an East London accent, it appears that Darren Aronofsky's version sees a Ray Winstone-shaped villain giving Noah a bit of a hard time. Probably teasing him about building a massive boat during a drought.
The cast for Aronofsky's latest has been coming together quite quickly, two by two you might say, following Russell Crowe's attachment to the project. Logan Lerman and Douglas Booth are on board to play his sons, and Emma Watson is going to play a young woman who romances Booth. Still up for grabs is the part of Noah's wife, with Julianne Moore and Jennifer Connelly both rumoured to be in talks for the part.
However, it seems that Noah has a lot more on his plate than a downpour of biblical proportions, and that comes in the shape of his arch-nemesis. Both Liam Neeson and Liev Shreiber were reported to be considered, but, according to Deadline, it looks as though it's been decided that Winstone is the man for the job.
Noah will begin shooting in August and is due for release on the 28th March 2014.
Hugh Laurie for Robocop villain?13/06/2012
With Hugh Laurie no longer playing House he's ditched the cane and stubble but doesn't look set to return to playing goody-goody characters any time soon. Instead, he's reportedly in talks to play a baddie in the new Robocop reboot, according to Variety.
The cast for Sony and MGM's re-imagining of Paul Verhoeven's Sci-Fi classic is really coming together with Joel Kinnaman as Alex Murphy, the cop who is re-pieced as Robocop by Gary Oldman's scientist Norton and Samuel L Jackson playing a powerful media mogul. Most recently, Abbie Cornish was offered the role of Murphy's torn wife, who's struggling to come to terms with the fact that she's not quite widowed.
If he takes the part, Laurie will play the money-hungry head of Omni Corp, the company that creates Robocop and is more interested in cash flow than crime solving.
Jose Padilha is set to start shooting this summer from a script written by Josh Zetumer.
The Woman In Black 2 plot appears13/06/2012
No one can doubt the success of The Woman In Black, which starred Daniel Radcliffe as a young solicitor sent to a haunted house to put things in order after the owner's death. However, whether Radcliffe will appear is still unclear.
The sequel to James Watkins' horror takes place during World War II when the British government has turned Eel Marsh House into a military mental hospital. Of course, the arrival of a group of mentally disturbed patients doesn't go unnoticed by The Woman In Black. Our main character this time is Eve, a beautiful nurse (natch) who arrives to help tend to the men inside and soon realises she's got more on her hands than a bunch of shell-shocked war heroes.
A sequel to The Woman In Black hasn't appeared in book form, but original author Susan Hill developed the concept for this one and the screenplay this time around is by John Croker who was story editor on the first movie. The cast, director and start-date are yet to appear, so watch this space.
