Vin Diesel is taking a break from stealing cars and guarding the galaxy to step back in time. Our first look at Breck Eisner‘s The Last Witch Hunter reveals a 13th-century version of Diesel’s immortal title character. Check out the first The Last Witch Hunter image after the jump. (Note: the header pic is from Riddick, not The Last Witch Hunter). The first Last Witch Hunter image comes from (where else?) Vin Diesel’s Facebook page. His original caption is below. Apparently being a witch hunter in the Middle Ages involves lots of fur and facial hair.

October is the month that many studios unleash their Halloween-appropriate slate of films. This year Universal has a nice selection of flicks that fit that mold and one of them is getting pushed up a week to make room for their other offerings. Dracula Untold is moving up a week, from October 17th to October 10th. It will now open a week after Universal's The Conjuring spinoff, Annabelle. The new date means that Dracula will face off against Robert Downey Jr.'s The Judge.

Marvel's panel at this year's SDCC wasn't exactly the knockout punch fans were expecting. We had the details for films like ANT-MAN and AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, but where were the surprise announcements? What the hell was The Rock teasing us about? What of the rumors of a DOCTOR STRANGE announcement? Sometimes these announcement are delayed for legal reasons, but what if an actor could be the hold-up for a possible... Read More...

"I see the devil inside him!" Following the first trailer for the horror action adventure Dracula Untold not too long ago, a new trailer from Japan has surfaced, showing a bit more of the desperate transformation Luke Evans makes in order to save his family and people from a tyrannical ruler. There's a lot of the same beats from the first trailer here, but this time they don't shove the fact that this is Dracula down your throat until the title appears at the end (and it has a different title too).

Last month, we reported that actor Joaquin Phoenix was in negotiations with Marvel Studios to play the title role in Doctor Strange, with a new report emerging this week that the actor is close to finalizing his deal.
Contrary to recent reports, many just can't see Joaquin Phoenix - who apparently passed on the Lex Luthor role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - starring in Doctor Strange for Marvel Studios. He first became what sounded like a frontrunner for the Scott Derrickson helmed movie during Comic-Con, and it appeared as if he would be announced at the event just like Mark Ruffalo was for The Avengers a few years ago. That obviously didn't happen, but according to Badass Digest (via IGN), that was the plan!
