Thankfully, this was made much easier by the release of the official Ghostbusters Ecto-1 LEGO set, complete with all four of our heroes.

Awesome: Chris Pratt Visits Children's Hospital Dressed as Star-Lord

Chris Pratt

Everyone is feeling pretty proud of themselves for making this ALS Ice Bucket Challenge a popular charitable trend, and it's hard to be cynical about something so silly doing so much good. Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt even partook in the challenge himself, but it's another heartwarming gesture of generosity that has a lump in our throats. Pratt was able to hook Marvel up with Children's Miracle Network Hospital to arrange a special screening of the sci-fi adventure for patients and their families at Children's Hospital in Los Angeles earlier this week. But that's not even the coolest part. More below!

Review: Rodriguez & Miller's 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Slums It

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

Like Marv and the people in The Projects or the girls of Old Town, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is slumming it. The long-gestating sequel to Robert Rodriguez 's 2005 adaptation of the gritty and profane comic series from Frank Miller, you may be fooled into thinking it's more of the same, low-brow fun. You'd be wrong and probably a little disappointed. Sin City was a stylish and sadistic twist of the knife that laid its gallows humor on thicker than water. This one has the markings of a quality follow-up for fans of the first, it ultimately fails, its super serious attitude producing extremely dull results that border on tedium.

Jeremy Lovering, Not Nicolas Winding Refn, to Direct 'The Bringing'

Jeremy Lovering

Earlier this summer, a report surfaced saying Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn was in early talks to direct The Bringing, a spec script by Brandon & Phillip Murphy. The film was inspired by the mysterious tale of a young woman named Elisa Lam, who can be seen in a security video on an elevator in the Cecil Hotel in LA acting strangely before she disappeared and was found dead in one of the roof's water tanks two weeks later. However, when Refn revealed a month later that his next film would be his own I Walk with the Dead, we were skeptical he closed a deal for The Bringing. Now a new director has been chosen. Read on!

Josh Brolin & Jimmy Fallon Celebrate 30th Anniversary of 'Goonies'

Josh Brolin

There have been rumblings of a sequel to The Goonies for years, with the most recent, seemingly solid news coming from director Richard Donner saying that a sequel to The Goonies is in development. This is one of those situations where that's been said so many times before hat we'll only believe it when we see it. Still, it's cool that an actor like Josh Brolin still embraces his past association with a movie like that, especially when Christian Bale doesn't seem to want anything to do with The Newsies. So Jimmy Fallon had some fun with Brolin on "The Tonight Show" to honor The Goonies on its 30th anniversary. Watch!

First Look: Keanu Reeves in Action as Vengeful Hitman 'John Wick'

John Wick

It's been awhile since Keanu Reeves has really done anything worth paying attention to, but maybe a new shot of him getting back into action, and not in some weird medieval fantasy world, will help him get his groove back. John Wick is a new action thriller coming this fall, and while the title doesn't sound like anything special, the first look image of Reeves in the film is pretty bad ass, showing the star of The Matrix franchise armed and dangerous, complete with some longer hair and a beard. The film sees Reeves as the titular character, an ex-hitman who is out for vengeance. Sounds generic, but we're still hoping for the best.

Jennifer Lawrence Maybe Taking a Role in Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight'

Jennifer Lawrence

While we've heard that the cast of Quentin Tarantino's new western The Hateful Eight would be utilizing the cast that came together for the live reading of the script earlier this year, it sounds like there might be an addition to the cast no one expected. As of now, the return of Bruce Dern, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Madsen, James Remar, Amber Tamblyn, Walton Goggins and Zoe Bell have mostly been assumed with no official confirmation. Kurt Russell seems to be the only one definitely returning since he knew that production was going to begin soon. Now Collider is hearing that Jennifer Lawrence is in talks for a role.

Rian Johnson Used 'Se7en' & 'Blade Runner' to Get 'Looper' Made

Looper

Nowadays, in order to make a great pitch for a potential film, a director needs a proof-of-concept video to convey the style and tone of a project that they hope to get in front of a camera. In the case of original films that don't have established intellectual property and really need a convincing pitch, this is one of the most important elements of a pitch, especially when the film is a complex time travel thriller like Looper. Director Rian Johnson, who will soon be entering high pressure territory by directing Star Wars: Episode VIII, had to create one of these videos when he was pitching the superior sci-fi flick, and it's pretty cool.

Shane Black Set to Direct Remo Williams Adaptation 'The Destroyer'

Shane Black / The Destroyer

Well, director Shane Black already has a full future slate with projects like an adaptation of the pulp hero Doc Savage and a reboot of Predator in the works, and now one more has been added to the mix. Sony Pictures has announced that Black will direct an adaptation of The Destroyer, the adventure book series by Warren Murphy that follows Newark cop Remo Williams, who is framed, sentenced to death, then resurrected following a botched execution in order to serve as enforcement arm for CURE, a top-secret, extra-Constitutional arm of the U.S. government. That absolutely sounds like the perfect project for Black.

Rowling's magical universe into an adventure about the author Newt Scamander.
