Extras-bullet-points-micro3Much like FaceBook, even The Movies isn’t immune to showing you pictures of pregnant ladies and babies. Bearing that in mind, here’s your first look at a preggers Zoe Saldana in the remake of Rosemary’s Baby.

To put more baby pictures on FaceBook. Probably.

Extras-bullet-points-micro3She may have been a slave for twelve years, but Lupita Nyong’o is getting more than just 15 minutes of fame and her name horribly mispronounced after her Oscar win. The actress is bucking the Oscar curse for the Star Wars curse now, as Latino Review reports that she recently met up with JJ Abrams for a role in Star Wars Episode 7.

Much like everyone else in Hollywood right now, actually. Hopefully, she won’t be spending 12 years as an alien slave, owned by Fassbender the Hutt.

Extras-bullet-points-micro3I might have an unhealthy obsession with actress Sienna Miller, according to her latest restraining order. And thanks to that unhealthy pursuit of love, I might now finally be interested in watching American Sniper. The film has been chopping and changing directors for months, as the Bradley Cooper starring film has attempted to enter production.

Taking one step further, Miller will join Cooper as the female lead in the military drama based on the Chris Kyle autobiography, a book based on the US sniper with the most recorded kills in US military history.

Extras-bullet-points-micro3In a world, where one man narrated all the movie trailers, there was only one king. And that king is no longer with us. Movie trailer voice guy legend Hal Douglas passed away due to complications from pancreatic cancer. Douglas recorded literally thousands of trailers , setting a benchmark for future narrators on the edge of space.

Here’s some of the last work that Douglas recorded, spoofing himself for the documentary Comedian.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
