Without exaggerating one bit, I audibly exclaimed “YES!” to myself was when it was recently announced that Disney and Pixar are officially developing a sequel to ‘The Incredibles.’ And while very little is known about the long-awaited film, except for the fact that ‘The Incredibles’ creator Brad Bird is writing, Digital Spy asked Samuel L. Jackson about the film, and whether his character Frozone is returning. “Every time I run into Brad (Bird) he always tells me Frozone is going to be part of whatever’s going on, so I have to believe that. I guess they would be the Incredibles without Frozone, but I think Frozone would be a wonderful, wonderful addition to what’s already there. I’m just looking forward to seeing what Jack-Jack turned into.” You can check out the video of Jackson’s comments below.

Closely following the release of the film’s new TV spot, 20th Century Fox has premiered, via the good folks over at Collider, this new poster for ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.’ The Matt Reeves-direct flick is the sequel to the 2011 film ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes,’ which began Fox’s reboot of the original ‘Planet of the Apes’ series.

Alright, I’m ridiculously excited for this. 20th Century Fox has set loose this first TV spot for ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.’ Andy Serkis, celebrated for his performance in ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes,’ reprises his role as Caesar in ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,’ which is released in cinemas on July 11th in the US and July 17th in the UK. The Matt Reeves-directed sequel also stars Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Toby Kebbell, Keri Russell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo, Jocko Sims, and Judy Greer. ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ opened theatrically during the summer of 2011, grossing nearly half a billion dollars worldwide.
The brief synopsis for ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ is as follows: A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.”

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For weaves together two of Frank Miller’s classic stories with new tales in which the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants. In Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to “The Big Fat Kill” (featured in the film Frank Miller’s Sin City) and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face.
