Fantastic Four
Fantastic Four actor Michael B. Jordan has responded to trolls, saying that "I’ll be the one to shoulder all this hate." The Human Torch was originally blonde and Caucasian. Some fans claim they're just angry that they changed the character at all. Or is the real anger because the Torch is black? Props to 6mm for the poll and Photoshop-fu (posted May 23, 2015)
Johnny Depp
Those of you used to seeing Depp play Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean may not recognize the baldness, busted teeth and revolver of his new character in Black Mass. Props to red-medal fan IM-A-DEPP for sharing the video within minutes of release! (posted May 23, 2015)

Apple
Like Apple, Boyle, Fassbender, Winslet and Rogen might not be the first to market with a Steve Jobs lovefest, but maybe they'll be the ones to do it best? What did you think of Fassbender as Jobs and Rogen as Wozniak? (posted May 18, 2015)
Upcoming Movies

Christina Applegate
Christina Applegate, Ed Helms, and Chris Hemsworth's, uh, remote control, star in this rebirth of Chevy Chase's classic vacation comedies. It definitely kicks it up (down?) a notch from the classics. There are kids in this trailer, but this movie is definitely not for kids! (posted May 07, 2015)

Justin Bieber
A movie about male models! It's still unclear if Bieber will perform as a self-absorbed male model/artist obsessed with image and appearance, or if he will instead be playing a fictional character (j/k, we love the Bieber! :D) The real question is if he is an ambi-turner? (posted Apr 29, 2015)
