GHOST RIDER 2: SPIRITS OF VENGEANCE
A few days ago, scans surfaced on the Internet, but Empire has released high quality official stills from the film. Since I'm still giving the "Nic Cage head on fire" joke a little vacation, here's a shot of Idris Elba as the drunken priest Moreau:

X-MEN: SECOND CLASS
Actress Rose Byrne, who played Moira MacTaggert in "First Class," tells IGN that she signed for three movies in total. "As of right now I have no idea if they're planning on doing another one," she says. "I loved working on it and loved working with the cast. I loved Matthew Vaughn. I also loved the style.

While still in my Comic-Con recovery, I'm making a quick jaunt up North. Hopefully, it'll be a relaxing drive. On the way back, we're taking the long way down the 101 and making a day of it. I haven't done that in a long time. 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 week to come.
