Ghostbusters cast tipped: Melissa McCarthy’s on board, others in talks

The cast for Paul Feig's Ghostbusters reboot has been tipped, and among it all is word that Melissa McCarthy -- known to have been in talks for one of the lead roles -- has signed a deal and is on-board. A trio of others have also been tipped as being in talks to sign on, with the four of them ultimately being destined to assume roles as the newest collective of ghost-foiling comrades. If all goes as planned, the movie will enter production some time this summer after a relatively long -- and sometimes troubled -- development phase.

Guardians of the Galaxy: 8-bit Cinema version

Guardians of the Galaxy: 8-bit Cinema version

It has become something of an honor for a movie to be turned into a pixelated rendition of its normal self, and we have seen many examples of this in the past thanks to the folks at CineFix. The Matrix, The Avengers, and many (many) more have been given an 8-bit makeover, some of them in the style of classic video games, others as merely classics-inspired truncated versions of the movies themselves. Joining them all is Guardians of the Galaxy.

Avengers: Age of Ultron: the second trailer arrives

Avengers: Age of Ultron: the second trailer arrives

Can't get enough Avengers? If so, Marvel's recent YouTube activity will have you happy. The company has officially released the second trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and with it comes a very somber mood with additional looks at the upcoming show. There's 1:40 minutes of footage, and it seems more tailored toward tweaking the viewer's emotions rather than presenting any big new look at the movie and its story. As always, we have the trailer available after the jump!

Marvel’s Ant-Man: first full length trailer goes live

Marvel’s Ant-Man: first full length trailer goes live

Last week, Marvel teased eager fans with a pre-movie trailer video that offered clips from the actual first trailer -- only they were in tiny ant-sized windows too small for anyone to actually see. We blew up the clips and they gave a fuzzy, if somewhat frustrating glimpse at what was going on in the scenes, but ultimately it was a wait-and-see game until the actual trailer was released. Now it's here, and we get a full human-sized look at those clips, as well as nearly two minutes of other footage.

Marvel’s Ant-Man teased with teeny movie clips

Marvel's Ant-Man, the movie that had a bit of a rough spell before ultimately casting Paul Rudd and recently entering production, has officially been teased -- and by teased, we mean a literal tease, in that viewers are shown several clips from the movie that are entirely too small to actually see. Clips for ants, more or less. If you have eagle eyes or happen to be excellent at discerning rapid minuscule movie segments, however, we've got the "trailer" for you after the jump.

Survey shows studios concerned about fast Internet, piracy

A series of leaked slides obtained by TorrentFreak show that Hollywood i in full freak-out mode over fast Internet. A survey conducted by Warner Bros. and Sony Entertainment in 2012 asked participants about their consumption of “unofficial” media (read: pirated content). Centered in Kansas City and St. Louis, the survey took some liberties is ascertaining how respondents would download and/or distribute content if they had Google Fiber. The focussed survey also made some assumptions regarding potential actions of people with Fiber.

“The Interview” now streaming on iTunes

The latest movie from Seth Rogen and James Franco called "The Interview" has been surprisingly controversial. The controversy came when North Korea's leader became angry that the movie was going to air since it is about his death. Sony caved to pressure and at first decided not to show the film after screenings were cancelled on December 17. Eventually Sony relented and put the movie out so people could rent and purchase it digitally.

AMC Theatres, MoviePass team up with monthly movie pass

Are you a movie buff? The kind that must see the latest flicks while they're still in the theater? If so, you've likely spent a minor fortune on movie tickets, something AMC Theatres and MoviePass aim to solve. The two have recently teamed up to provide a subscription plan of sorts that'll let movie-goers see one movie every day for a flat rate that works out to substantially less than buying individual tickets -- assuming you see quite a few movies a month.

Leak: MPAA calls Google ‘childish’, blames them for piracy

Pirated content is a hotly debated topic, but the stance from film production houses is pretty clear: they’re not into it. Piracy has it’s proponents (mostly consumers who just want free stuff), but the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) isn’t one of them. With the hack on Sony, we now see just how vehemently opposed they really are. Emails traded between the MPAA and various studio bosses reveal a common enemy in Goliath, which is believed to be Google. They even accuse Google of being “childish”.
