+ Even though people are still recovering from throwing their money at Star Trek Into Darkness this weekend and Iron Man 3 the two weekends before that, Warner Bros. wanted to remind them that they still ought to spend even more of it on Man of Steel, which comes out next month. Hence, the new trailer.
+ Justin Timberlake has proven to everyone each time he's showed up to the Cannes Film Festival that he's not only one of the most talented musicians, dancers, and actors around today, but that he dresses better than anyone else. No, really.
+ Now that Mandy Patinkin has signed on to star in Zach Braff's Kickstarter-funded film, stars like Kate Hudson and Anna Kendrick are taking note and jumping on the bandwagon.
+ Since it feels like years since we last heard about the film adaptation of Ender's Game, the marketing team behind the project decided to throw fans a bone by releasing a new promo poster featuring Harrison Ford and Asa Butterfield (who strangely resembles Elijah Wood in it at first glance).
Hot off the heels of Jennifer Lawrence's Oscar win, producers of Catching Fire - the sequel to the box office hit The Hunger Games - have released a gorgeous portrait of her character in the film Katniss Everdeen. Reminiscient of a Monique Lhuillier or Alexander McQueen piece, the flowing dress softens Lawrence's austere expression (which matches those of her castmates, whose photos can be seen after the jump).
certainly thankfully a far cry from those severely Photoshopped Christian Dior ads!

This past week has proven to be both good and bad for Lord of the Rings fans.
While fans of the franchise's latest film, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, rejoiced this weekend over its box office achievement in earning more than $1 billion, Warner Bros. confirmed that the second film in the three-part series, The Hobbit: There and Back Again, will not be released in theaters until December 13, 2014. The delay is about six months later than its initial release date of July 18, 2014.
There is no word as to why the decision was made for the delay in the Peter Jackson-helmed project, which was filmed at the same time as the other two installments.

The folks behind the Evil Dead remake are pretty confident that the new film will scare your
socks skin off - according to the film's new poster, anyway.
With folks from the original on board (Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell are producing) and Jennifer's Body writer Diablo Cody aiding with the script, perhaps the new version won't be all that bad. Then again, remaking such a cult-classic like Evil Dead is risky business! The film hits theaters April 12, 2013.

Fans looking forward to the new RoboCop remake will have to hold out a little bit longer to see Joel Kinnaman portray the eponymous cyborg. Sony and MGM have announced that they're pushing the film's original August 9, 2013 release date to February 7, 2014 in order to allow more time for special effects and postproduction work.
Perhaps as slight compensation for the delay, the studio released a new photo from the set (seen above): the reveal of RoboCop's bike!

Beyonce Knowles is to star in a documentary about her life and career.
The "Crazy In Love" singer is to direct, produce and appear in the film which will include concert footage, backstage scenes and interviews with her and her loved ones about her life. The documentary will focus on the release of her 2011 album 4, as well as her marriage to Jay-Z and the birth of the couple's daughter Blue Ivy in January 2012.
The former Destiny's Child star has been presenting different Hollywood studios with 20 minutes of footage in a bid to find the right distributor. Beyonce has had experience of directing in the past thanks to her MTV mini-documentary Beyonce: Year of 4 which showed her in the studio working on new tracks.
The 30-year-old R&B superstar is now set to follow in the footsteps of Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus with the fly-on-the-wall concert movie. The star teased fans on her official website in July with a cryptic message, "Leave Your Footprint On 19 August 2012," which could be linked to the documentary.
