The next “Hobbit” film may undergo a title change from “The Hobbit : There and Back” to “The Hobbit : Into the Fire”.

Due to a lackluster performance at the U.S Box office, the Arnold Schwarzenegger-starrer “Sabotage” is going direct-to-DVD in Australia.

Bookended with two multi-­‐2014 Goya-­‐Award-­‐winning titles – “Living is Easy with Eyes Closed”  (Vivir es fácil con los ojos cerrados) and “Witching and Bitching”  (Las brujas de Zugarramurdi) – the 17th Spanish Film Festival, presented by Estrella Damm, will feature 30 of the very best and most recent Spanish and Spanish-­‐language Latin American films, screening at Palace Cinemas nationally from 29 April. This year, the Festival is thrilled to present a programme of Australian premieres and also celebrate the arrival of very special guest, actor Álex González. Starring in two of the Festival’s films – “Scorpion Love” and “Combustion” – Álex will participate in a series of special Festival Q&A sessions in Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney and Brisbane.  For more info :

Matthew Tolmach, the producer of “Amazing Spider-Man 2″ and the upcoming “Sinister Six”, was at the premiere in Berlin yesterday of the “Spider-Man” sequel and hinted in an interview with that a ‘female’ villain may form part of the “Sinister Six” line-up. Might that be a female Vulture?

An Australian Exclusive Poster for “The Rover”, starring Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce, has been released to coincide with news that the film will premiere – out of competition – at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival.

Wendy and Lizzie Molyneux are writing a film adaptation of the Harvey Comics’ classic “Hot Stuff” for DreamWorks Animation. Plot details aren’t known, but it’s believed the film would be a live-action/CGI hybrid a’la “Casper” (1995).

Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures are developing a TV series exploring the Golden Age of Hollywood and the intersecting lives of Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich.

David Bruckner may end up directing the “Friday the 13th” reboot.

Why is there a scene from “X-Men : Days of Future Past” playing at the tail-end of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″? Here’s the answer.

FX has renewed “The Americans” for a third season.

The first poster for “The Equalizer”, starring Denzel Washington, has been released.

Will Ferrell and John C.Reilly will reunite for “Border Guards”, a comedy about two friends who think it’s in everyone’s best interests if they go to work patrolling the U.S Border. Adam McKay, who directed both “Talladega Nights” and “Step Brothers”, will direct.

Jaden Smith and Liev Schreiber will star in “The Good Lord Bird”, based on the James McBride book. Here’s the official synopsis : enry Shackleford is a young slave living in the Kansas Territory in 1857, when the region is a battleground between anti- and pro-slavery forces. When John Brown, the legendary abolitionist, arrives in the area, an argument between Brown and Henry’s master quickly turns violent. Henry is forced to leave town—with Brown, who believes he’s a girl. Over the ensuing months, Henry—whom Brown nicknames Little Onion—conceals his true identity as he struggles to stay alive. Eventually Little Onion finds himself with Brown at the historic raid on Harpers Ferry in 1859—one of the great catalysts for the Civil War.

“Expendables 3″ director Patrick Hughes says his remake of Gareth Evans’ “The Raid” will follow a “DEA task team, which was implemented by the Bush administration after September 11th when they realized that terrorism and the drug trade were so closely aligned. So they set up a DEA task team that’s six units and they work across borders and sort of act like Navy SEALS. You never read about it, you never hear about it, but they go on these missions. So that’s a really interesting take and a really nice premise and also what’s interesting on this take on it is the clash of cultures and the clash of martial arts, the fighting styles, which is something that’s going to be a lot of fun when we’ve really started pre-vizzing stuff.”

The poster for “Lucky Them”, starring Toni Collette and Thomas Haden Church, has been released.

“Magic Mike 2″ will hit theaters on July 3, 2015.

Sharon Stone has boarded the action comedy “American Ultra” starring Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg.
