So yesterday, we got our first look at Ryan Reynolds on set, and now Celebuzz gives us the Dude in his guise as an R.I.P.D. officer:
Okay, now we know it isn’t “Green Lantern 2.” Although, the Dude would make an interesting Alan Scott …

Ain’t It Cool News reports the animated adaptation of Eric Powell’s comic series still lacks funding.
But the fine folks at Blur Studios (via Eric Powel’s YouTube account) have made a little PSA featuring the voice of Clancy Brown as the Goon:
Release date: TBA
Producer Lauren Schuler Donner tells Popcorn Biz (via Comic Book Movie) that another sequel to the original “X-Men” may happen in the distant future, but her current focus is on spinoff properties like “Wolverine.” As she explains, “There’s no reason to saturate the market. So I would say no – I’m happy with what I’m doing right now.” I can understand that, because if there’s one thing the “X-Men” are allergic to, it’s over-exposure.
Release date: TBA
Actor Tom Hiddleston tells MTV News about his favorite scene in the film. “Just because it was a great day at work and will go down into my top ten days of work in my whole acting life, was the scene with [Anthony] Hopkins in the vault, when I find out that I’m Laufey’s son,” says the actor. “It was Tony’s first day at work and he was excited and thrilled to be working with Kenneth [Branagh], and Ken was excited and thrilled to be working with Tony.”
Starring Chris Hemsworth, on DVD/Blu-ray: now!
THE WALKING DEAD
Creator Robert Kirkman tells TV Line that fans will learn a little bit more about what makes zombies so hungry. “We never really got into all the nutritional components of a zombie’s diet or what a walker eats on a regular basis,” he says. “We’re going to learn a little bit more from scientific point-of-view about their nutritional composition. It’s an all-encompassing exploration of the digestive system of a zombie.” Didn’t we already see walker intestines in the second episode? Meanwhile, Spinoff Online spotted the poster for the new season:
Premieres: October 16th, 2011
DEFLECTORS AT FULL
If The Vulture is to be believed, J.J. Abrams is ready to direct the “Star Trek” sequel. I think that’s a good thing. He delivered a surprisingly solid movie that reignited my love for the original series and “The Next Generation.” A pretty remarkable feat when you consider that movie was made during a writer’s strike, leaving Abrams to shoot a half-finished script without altering a line. So what will the plot entail? Who knows? I just hope there’s room for Nick Frost to play Harry Mudd. Maybe they can coax Michael Fassbender into playing a Romulan. Meanwhile, if any of you in the great, wide Internet discover something awesome, disheartening, or 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 the eventual recasting of Captain Picard.
