THE LOSERS

According to ERC Box Office's Facebook page (via IESB), the film is shifting back to an April release date.While there is no stated reason, we can at least enjoy the film a few months earlier. Unless it, y'know, shifts release again.

Starring Jeffey Dean Morgan, release date: April 23rd, 2010

THOR

Anthony Hopkins tells The Los Angeles Times a little bit about Odin. "He's a stern man. He's a man with purpose. I play the god who banishes his son from the kingdom of Asgard because he screwed up ... I decide he's not really ready to rule the future kingdom, so I banish him. I'm harsh and my wife complains and I say, 'That is why I'm king.' He's ruthless, take-it-or-leave-it. Women are much more forgiving; men are not so forgiving. I know in my life, my karma is, 'If you don't like it, tough, move on.' And I move on. I'm a little like Odin myself," says the actor.

Starring Chris Hemsworth, release date: May 6th, 2011

KICK-ASS

Empire has a behind the scenes featurette that might be worthy of the pun. It's mostly made of people goofing off and never getting to the point. A perfectly sensible way to talk about "Kick-Ass" if you ask me.

Starring Nicholas Cage, release date: April 16th, 2010

GREEN LANTERN

Sci Fi Wire asks Peter Sarsgaard about Hector Hammond's prominent forehead. The actor replied, "I think it's awesome!" Sarsgaard says he is looking forward to being in a big movie. "I imagine that if I'd done 10 of them I wouldn't be as excited as I am, but it's not the kind of thing that I normally do. It feels expansive to me. It feels like shackles being taken off instead of being put on. I just feel like I can do anything with this role."

Starring Ryan Reynolds, release date: June 17th, 2011

TRON LEGACY

Latino Review received an interesting package. A plastic orangish Bit as seen in the first film. The promotional item led them to a countdown clock on the "Flynn Lives!" site. Presented in a series of ones and zeroes, the clock appears to be counting down to next Wednesday. A teaser trailer perhaps? Time will tell. (It usually does.)

Starring Jeff Bridges, release date: December 17th, 2010

BATMAN: UNDER THE RED HOOD

Voices from Krypton at Comic Book Movie has a first look at the upcoming DC Universe direct-to-video feature. "It's simply the darkest Batman movie we've made yet, and that's including 'Mask of the Phantasm' and 'Return of the Joker,'" says producer Bruce Timm. The film will feature Jason Todd and his most memorable moment as Robin.

Release date: TBA

SMALLVILLE

Kryptonsite has a small gallery of images from the upcoming episode "Persuasion." Nobody looks happy at whatever events they're witnessing. Not even Zod.

New episode: Friday

NOBODY BEGINS

We made it a day without any reboots, remakes, or revamps being announced in our little sphere of moviedom. While both Dracula and Frankenstein are set to Begin with new directions, they're a little outside the Reel's scope and therefore I can announce with clear lungs, "nobody beings today!" Meanwhile, if any of you in the great, wide Internet discover something awesome, disheartening, just plain weird, 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 "Amadeus Begins."
