The countdown starts to tick as exactly one month from now, the much anticipated installment of the hit action film series "Fast & Furious" aptly titled "Furious 7," will be hitting the theaters.
Fans of the franchise have long been looking forward for this sequel as this film would feature the final acts of its beloved mainstay actor, Paul Walker, who died in a car crash three years ago.
But before it opens to the big screen, rumors have already been circulating that yet another sequel will follow after the upcoming film. Here's what one of the "Furious 7" cast members have to say. more >>
"Avengers" cast member Jeremy Renner will be busy making two movies this year. Aside from filming with the rest of the Avengers in "Captain America," he will also start working on the science fiction movie "Story of Your Life" starting in June 2015.
Renner joins Amy Adams who was earlier cast in the movie. Renner will play a physicist who is teamed up with Adams' character, who is an expert linguist. Their mission in the movie is to decipher and find out whether aliens who have been arriving on earth pose a threat to the planet or not.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the storyline of the movie will show Adams' and Renner's characters trying to communicate with the aliens. In the process, Adams will experience "vivid flashbacks that become the key to unlocking the greater mystery about the true purpose of their visit." more >>
Disney announced a fourth sequel for the popular and beloved "Toy Story" series. Recent news now indicates that the upcoming installment will have an entirely different treatment as compared to the past three films.

The main cast of the live action adaptation of Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" will be mainly English. Emma Watson, famous for her role as Hermione Granger in the "Harry Potter" movies, was cast early this year to play Belle in the movie. Just recently, Dan Stevens of TV's Downton Abbey, was cast to be the Beast, which Watson herself confirmed on Twitter. Luke Evans, who played Bard the Bowman in "The Hobbit," will play the villainous Gaston.
The decision to make a live action movie of one of Disney's well-loved animated movies was said to have come after "Maleficent" fared well in the box office in 2014. According to Screen Rant, Disney started discussions about this project and chose "Beauty and the Beast" because it is "one of the most well-regarded in the history of American animation, holding the distinction of being one of the only animated works to ever be nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards."
It was Disney who also chose director Bill Condon to direct the film. Condon is known for his direction of "Twilight: Breaking Dawn," but this director also has considerable experience in directing musicals such as the Oscar-winning "Dreamgirls," which bodes well if Disney wants to include musical segments in the movie. Condon also made a name for himself directing "Gods & Monsters," the James Whale biopic in 1998. more >>

Ron Hubbard, the celebrities who have made Scientology famous, and the stories of abuse from former members.
"I was like Larry, he wanted to find out what people got out of it," Gibney told Business Insider. "And from my previous films, I got very interested in noble cause corruption and how when people are convinced of the nobility of the belief system they can do the most appalling things." more >>
