Welcome to The Extras! A daily dose of all the smaller movie related news, clips and just plain cool stuff that you might have missed!

Warning: This Instagram video for X-Men: Days of Future Past features loud noises and excessive Wolverine mutton-chops. No children under 13 are to view this please:

Gentlemen, we are down on a Ghostbuster. While Harold Ramis has gone to the big containment unit in the sky, that has left work on the long-in-development Ghostbusters III script in a bit of a quandry. Ramis was scheduled to have made a cameo appearance in that film, plans which will now have to be scrapped. A source over at Sony however, reckons that this hurdle can easily be cleared when the script is rewritten.

Yet again.

And that’s a wrap in Basin City, ladies and germs! Sin City finally gets a sequel this August in A Dame to Kill For, with directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller now working on the post production side of things. And they already have their eyes set on making this Sin City twosome a threesome.

In a recent interview on SiriusXM’s “Ron and Fez Show” (via The InterroBang), Rodriguez made the following comment:

“Yeah—the second Sin City– I was just here with Frank Miller last night and we were watching it last night,” Rodriguez told Bennington. “[We] finished the cut, effects are being done, it will come out in August.”

He continued, “He [Miller] watched Part 2—he watched it last night with me and then at the end he said, he didn’t have any comments, he was very happy with it. And he said, now about part three…. Started telling me how he’s going to do part three. So he’s already there on part three.”

C’mon ya pansies, make a third film already. I ain’t got all day.

 One of the most undervalued roles in making a movie these days, is the job of a cinematographer. No disrespect to the great directors out there, but many films today would not boast that certain signature style if it weren’t for these unsung heroes. Empire has a list up on the 20 names in the industry, and it’s well worth a read.

Constantine may not be a hero, but he certainly isn’t a villain. Most of the time that is. We’ve already got news that Matt Ryan will be bleaching his hair for the role, but he’s going to need an opposite number to battle on a weekly basis. So who’s the man that happens to be powerful and crazy enough to go one on one with the mage?

That would be Papa Midnite, a voodoo practitioner with an openly dark side. Djimon Hounsou portrayed him in the Keanu Reeves film, but there’ll most likely be a new actor under the hat that will have a score to settle with Constantine. Bleeding Cool reports that the New York location of the show will also see the mental asylum of Ravenscar hop across the pond, a location that plays a key role in Constantine’s life after a particularly nasty incident affects him early on his life.

Hey look, it’s the first teaser trailer for the Fargo TV series! In other news, wood chipper sales are soaring:

Chances are, you or someone in your life has pirated a movie at least once. While it may be illegal, it doesn’t exactly make you a  hardcore criminal and a feared renegade who flouts the law. Unless you’re one of these software pirates, who may have seen a tad too much of the Captain Phillips movie recently.
