IRON MAN 2

New images have surfaced from the film. Latino Review and various other sites have photos featuring Mickey Rourke, Robert Downey Jr., and Scarlet Johansson in their respective roles.

Starring Robert Downey Jr., release date: May 7th, 2010

ALIBI

"Twilight" producer Summit Entertainment is taking the reigns on the project, according to Variety. "Alibi" had previously been optioned by Mandeville. "Summit's attached John Hlavin to pen the script. He was recently hired to write the fourth installment of "Underworld" for Screen Gems," writes Variety. The original Mandeville producers will still be involved in the project.

Release date: TBA

THOR

Natalie Portman tells Parade Magazine security on the film is beyond government level. "I think everyone has gotten more secretive just because of the preponderance of technology that can scam just about anything. It's like you don't get a script anymore that doesn't have watermarks that would identify you if you ever tried to leak anything. The Thor script is hard to read because it's on some weird colored paper and they have your name in huge letters across every page. And any time you get a phone call from Marvel, it doesn't come up as a normal number, it's like a five digit code. I've never seen that before. I've had phone calls from people in the government and they don't have that. Marvel's like some like crazy underground world," she says.

Starring Chris Hemsworth, release date: May 20th, 2011

HANCOCK 2

Peter Berg tells Latino Review the process of getting a script together is a complicated one. "There are so many people involved in that, from Will [Smith] to his partner James Lassiter to Akiva [Goldsman] to Michael Mann, myself and to get us all in the same room just like this where we can all talk and then agree on anything, you've never met a group of people that have a harder time agreeing on anything. It's like the Israeli peace process times a thousand how tough it is to resolve. I think it'll happen though. We just have to kind of get in the same room for some consistency." Berg hosted Latino Review and a few other outlets on a US Naval Destroyer to discuss his crazy -- but interesting -- plan for his film based on the board game "Battleship."

Release date: TBA

THE HOBBIT

Producer Peter Jackson talked with Sci Fi Wire about the plan in making the films based on "The Hobbit." Jackson says, "Well, I'm not intending to be on the set every day looking over his shoulder ... It's Guillermo's movie, and he'll be filming it, not me. The reason he's directing it is because I'm a big fan of his movies, and I know he'll do a fantastic job. I know he's the right guy for the project, and I love his amazing sense of visual and imagery. So I won't be interfering with his approach."

Release date: December 2011

SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD

Bryan O'Malley draws today's eye theme picture over at the blog of director Edgar Wright.

Starring Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, release date: 2010

LOST WORLD

My copy of the new Mystery Science Theatre 3000, which was supposed to arrive yesterday, has gone missing and the US Postal Service doesn't recognize the tracking number I received. Hopefully, it will appear today. I've been looking foward to watching "Warrior of the Lost World" in DVD quality for sometime. Meanwhile, if any of you in the great, wide Internet discover something awesome, disheartening, let us know! Take credit, come up with a clever nickname, or go anonymous. The choice is yours. Fresh rumors and movie news every weekday morning. I am Erik Amaya bracing for the future threat of movie riffing.
