J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan Have “Assumed Screenwriting Duties” on ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′

One of the very first 'Star Wars: Episode 7' announcements (minus the announcement that it was actually happening) was that Michael Arndt, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter behind 'Toy Story 3' and 'Little Miss Sunshine,' would be writing the script.

No longer.

Lucasfilm has confirmed today that Arndt is out and director J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan ('The Empire Strikes Back') have "assumed screenwriting duties" on 'Star Wars: Episode 7.'

Last week, we brought you the news that 'Thor 2' would feature not one, but two post-credits scenes, each of which would feature some big reveals.

'Thor 2' director Alan Taylor, who isn't happy at all that it was edited into his movie.

Quentin Tarantino Explains His Love For ‘The Lone Ranger’

Quentin Tarantino surprised many earlier this week when he released a list of his favorite movies of the year and on that list, along with Oscar frontrunners like 'Gravity' and 'Blue Jasmine,' was the Razzie frontrunner 'The Lone Ranger.' As we all wondered aloud, "How could this be?," Mr. Tarantino has arrived, as if on cue, to explain exactly how it be, defending his choice of 'The Lone Ranger' as one of the best movies of 2013.

RIP Skinemax: Cinemax Looking to Ditch “After Dark” Softcore Porn

Cinemax After Dark - or Skinemax, as it's more widely known - is a block of "adult programming" broadcast on Cinemax after midnight. Starting in 1984, the programming block became a staple of teenagers in the late-80s/early-90s, who grew up on sneaking downstairs while their parents were sleeping to catch some skin (not that we know from experience...).

Well, the good times are about to come to a close as Cinemax looks to rebrand, leaving Skinemax in the dust.

‘The Starving Games’ Could Be the Worst Movie of 2013

Just yesterday, Quentin Tarantino revealed his list of his favorite movies of 2013; a list that spurred some debate at which films really were the best of the year. But, when it comes to the title of Worst Movie of 2013, there will be no such debate. At the top will sit 'The Starving Games,' the latest "comedy" from Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the prolific spoofing duo behind 'Date Movie,' 'Epic Movie' and, yes, 'Disaster Movie.'

Read the Script For the Planned ‘Justice League’ Movie!

If you're one of the people who think Batfleck is a bad thing (for the record, we disagree), just remember to tell yourself, it could've been worse. Back in 2007, pre-production began on a 'Justice League' movie that would've cast D.J. Cotrona as Superman, rapper Common as Green Lantern and Armie Hammer as Batman, with Christopher Nolan's 'Dark Knight' trilogy never happening.

The film never happened, for various reasons, but now if you're curious what a 'Justice League' movie could've looked like, you can read the script for the movie right now. (Warning: you'll have a newfound appreciation of 'Avengers,' the 'Dark Knight' and 'Man of Steel' after reading this.)
