In my previous box office report for the Chinese market late last week, I noted that with the numbers available then for the “The Wolverine,” it should have already passed the $400M mark. Now that those figures are included in, it has an official worldwide gross of $405M.

'Archie' Movie To Follow John Hughes Tradition

10:29 PM 10/5/2013 by Fred Topel
At the press junket for the Carrie remake this weekend, we had a roundtable interview with screenwriter Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. Aguirre-Sacasa is a writer on Glee and is also writing the screenplay for an Archie movie, which makes sense since he also works on the current run of “Archie” comic books.

I was surprised to see “Kick-Ass” being labeled as a cult hit in the media in multiple instances. It was described as a film that was overlooked during its theatrical run but developed a following on video, and thus, garnered a sequel. Maybe that’s what Lionsgate fed them but it’s simply not true.

As soon as Vin Diesel tipped his hand about a possible Marvel role in his future, the rumors started flying about which character he might play. When he mentioned an unorthodox "love story" involving the role, the Vision and Thanos seemed like the safest bets, but the (apparent) truth ended up being a lot weirder:

Vin Diesel Reportedly in Talks for 'Guardian of the Galaxy's' Groot

The last time anyone heard anything from Vin Diesel regarding his upcoming absorption into the Marvel Universe, he was telling fans that his still-unspecified role in a still-unnamed Marvel project would have something to do with "a kind of love story" -- leading to speculation that Diesel would either be playing the Vision or Thanos, two characters with decidedly unorthodox love lives (and personalities that would seem to lend themselves to Diesel's uniquely deadpan onscreen persona).

Thor: The Dark World
With a new trailer for Thor: The Dark World just around the corner -- and just a few mere Earth months standing between us and the Asgardian legend's next big-screen adventure -- now seems like the perfect time to check in with hammer-wielding star Chris Hemsworth and see what he can tell us about what to expect from the Thor sequel.

Holy Crap, John C. Reilly Is Playing a Bigger Role in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Than We Thought – When we first heard that John C. Reilly had been offered a role in Marvel’s upcoming space odyssey, Guardians of the Galaxy, the story was that he was probably going to be playing a character named Rhomann Dey, who is a member of an intergalactic police force called the Nova Corps in the comics, but who would apparently be a SHIELD member who acted as a liaison to the stars in this story. 44 weeks 1 day ago via brucelee

Goyer Says ‘Man of Steel’ Universe Will Re-Boot Batman – ...I feel like I just came to terms with The Dark Knight Rises turning into a bold-faced dark-tone comedy the more you watch it and didn’t dig the lack of world building in Man of Steel. So imagine my surprise when David Goyer, writer of Man of Steel and presumptive writer of the Justice League movie (that is likely inevitable) mentioned to Hey You Guys that all the work they did on Batman for the better part of the past decade is going to get tossed:
