Dragon 3
Successful animated franchises are worth their weight in gold -- but like gold, they're kind of heavy and rather expensive, so most studios aren't as quick to sign off on a sequel as they'd be with, say, a cheapo horror flick that makes a bundle of money. Case in point:

Is Joaquin Phoenix thinking twice about being Doctor Strange? 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...

Luke Evans Fights an Army in Japanese Trailer for 'Dracula Untold' "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.

Details On Why Joaquin Phoenix May Be Reluctant To Play DOCTOR STRANGE For Marvel 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!

Joaquin Phoenix in Final Talks for 'Doctor Strange'? Marvel is reportedly close to finalizing a deal with Joaquin Phoenix to play Doctor Strange, according to a new report from Collider.We reported just over a month ago that Joaquin Phoenix had entered negotiations to play Doctor Steven Strange, but the fact that his deal still hasn't been finalized lead to a number of other casting rumors, including this week's report that Jack Huston is in contention for the coveted role.

Joaquin Phoenix
Hey, remember when Joaquin Phoenix fooled a bunch of people into thinking he was going to retire from acting to pursue a career in rap? Ha, ha, ha! If he'd followed that up by telling everyone he wanted to star in a movie about the Marvel Comics hero Doctor Strange, it would have seemed like another piece of insane performance art, but here we are in 2014, and Joaquin Phoenix starring in Marvel's Doctor Strange movie appears to be all but a done deal.

'Seventh Son' Debuts New Trailer, Still Seems Kind of Sad

Seventh Son
It's been bumped so many times that we'd honestly kind of forgotten it hadn't actually come out, but no -- Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore's The Seventh Son is still on the Universal schedule, where it's currently slated to come out on (long pause) February 6, 2015.

Jack Huston Is The Latest Rumoured Choice For Doctor Strange And Jeremy Renner thinks Hawkeye might show up in Captain America 3We’re in that fuzzy, transitional period where a film moves from the vapourware status to reality in the evolution of Marvel’s Doctor Strange. With Scott Derrickson confirmed to direct, the casting rumours for the title character have been flying thick and fast, landing on various known quantities such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hardy, Jared Leto and, during Comic-Con, Joaquin Phoenix, who was reportedly in early talks. The latest name to add to the list?
