It's been awhile since we've seen Zorro making derring-do on the big screen -- since 2005's The Legend of Zorro, to be precise -- and to be honest, we'd long since assumed the property had returned to the Hollywood graveyard. But where there's a franchise, there's someone waiting to greenlight a new movie, and so we've arrived at the place where Sony has started making preparations for a Zorro reboot.

Way back when Marvel first announced the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, and it still seemed like a crazy idea that stood a snowball's chance of succeeding, Jason Momoa reportedly met with the studio to screen test for the role of the surly, vengeance-seeking alien Drax the Destroyer -- and then turned down the opportunity to play the character.

I went to a screening of Stalingrad on IMAX 3D last week. It wasn’t a promotional screening because it was in the middle of the working day, and there were only several others in attendance.
I sat right in the middle of the theater to try and get completely immersed in the film -- you know, the whole IMAX 3D experience.

In the five weeks since it hit theaters, the Ice Cube-Kevin Hart comedy Ride Along has grossed nearly $120 million against a $25 million budget, and you know what that means: Universal wants a sequel. In fact, the studio started moving on a follow-up last year, when it signed Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi to write a script, but now Variety reports they've started making deals with the on-screen talent.

Robocop opened a couple weeks ago in Asia to take advantage of the Chinese New Year holidays and took in a solid $5.5M from three small territories. I can see why after a press screening. One of the key locations in the film is China, although I think Hollywood needs to think just a bit harder than rice paddies to represent the country.

Brick Mansions, a remake of District B13, was originally scheduled for a February release, but with Paul Walker's death, the movie has been moved back to April 25th. Check out the trailer below.
The movie stars Walker as an undercover cop who has to infiltrate an area controlled by criminal elements in order to disarm a neutron bomb.
In a dystopian Detroit, abandoned brick mansions left from better times now house only the most dangerous criminals. Unable to control the crime, the police constructed a colossal containment wall around this area to protect the rest of the city. For undercover cop Damien Collier (Paul Walker) every day is a battle against corruption.

The Robocop reboot opened on Chinese New Year with a strong $5.5M in three territories in Asia. It topped the box office in Malaysia, Taiwan, and Singapore, according to Deadline.com.
Studios behind big-budget blockbusters are opening their films in foreign markets ahead of their U.S. release with more regularity nowadays.
