Cover Page of Ridley Scott's 'The Martian' Script Shot into Space

The Martian

While Ridley Scott's Biblical epic Exodus: Gods & Kings is still in theaters, the hype machine has already been started for the director's next film The Martian, and it's literally out of this world. Empire reports that the December 5th launch of NASA’s Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (MPCV), conducted as a 4-hour test flight 5600 miles above the Earth’s surface, had a capsule full of personal objects important to people involved in the project. What's cool is that one of the objects was the cover page of the screenplay for The Martian, written by Cabin in the Woods scribe/director Drew Goddard, with a drawing by Scott himself.

The Interview

This morning, President Barack Obama participated in a news conference regarding the cyber attack against Sony Pictures after the FBI had officially made a statement implicating North Korea was responsible for the hacking of the motion pictures studio, the leaking of their documents and files online, and also the threat that resulted in Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg's comedy The Interview being pulled from a Christmas Day release in theaters in the United States. We've officially reached a place where foreign policy and the entertainment industry go hand in hand. But Obama simply wishes it was handled better.

Sarah Michelle Gellar is Mental in 'Veronika Decides to Die' Trailer

Veronika Decides to Die

After facing monsters in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and creepy ghosts in The Grudge, this time Sarah Michelle Gellar finds terror in her own mind. Veronika Decides to Die is an adaptation of Paulo Coelho's book of the same name, and the first trailer for the thriller has arrived, even though the film was shot in 2008 and release internationally in 2009. The story follows a twentysomething woman who decides to kill herself, despite the fact that she seems to have it all: youth and beauty, boyfriends and a loving family, a fulfilling job. But when her sleeping pill fueled suicide attempt finds her waking up in a mental hospital, she's told she only has days to live. Is this a twisted It's a Wonderful Life remake or something?

Sisters

We've already seen Amy Poehler and Tina Fey make a splash on "Saturday Night Live" but their team-up on the big screen in Baby Mama left something to be desire, despite being moderately amusing.

Kevin Hart Prepares Will Ferrell for Prison in Trailer for 'Get Hard'

Get Hard

"Please, don't sexually assault me, I'm already to sad." After debuting in theaters with Horrible Bosses 2, the trailer for the Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart comedy Get Hard has arrived. While I was hopeful that a teaming of Ferrell with Hart might make my distaste for the latter comedy star go away, that's not even my biggest problem with this trailer. Whether this film had Kevin Hart or not, this just doesn't look that funny. There's a couple amusing moments like Ferrell sadly sitting in a massage chair while drinking a glass of wine, but right now this just feels like a "Saturday Night Live" sketch that will go on far too long. Watch?

George Clooney Wants 'The Interview' VOD, Tried to Rally Hollywood

Georce Clooney

After major movie theater chains opted not to book The Interview to open on Christmas Day amidst threats of terrorism against any theaters showing the film, Sony Pictures decided not to release the film at all, and that includes VOD and home video for now. There's been plenty of discussion and rage about this decision fueled by fear of Kim Jong-un and North Korea, who are believed to be the driving force behind these threats and the hack of Sony Pictures, because of their distaste for the comedy about an attempt to assassinate the leader. Now Hollywood heavy-hitter George Clooney weighs in and highlights an attempt to get Hollywood's key players to rally behind Sony so they didn't have to scrap the film's release out of fear.

First Look: Mark Wahlberg & His Bear Get Ready to Dive in 'Ted 2'

Ted 2

Mostly because the special effects on the film are still being done, we haven't yet seen any real first look photos from the forthcoming sequel Ted 2. There was a trailer that leaked briefly awhile back, but it was chock full of unfinished visual effects shots and it was taken down very quickly. However, we finally have the first official photo from the comedy that made it on our list of the 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2015. This time Morgan Freeman is coming along for some fun as a high profile civil rights lawyer, though we don't see him in this first look photo. Instead, it's Mark Wahlberg and the title bear getting ready to dive.

'Kingsman: Secret Service' International Trailer Goes 'Pretty Woman'

Kingsman: The Secret Service

"What a shame we both had to grow up." After the last explosive and action-packed red band trailer for Mathew Vaughn's fun comic book spy thriller adaptation Kingsman: The Secret Service, a new international trailer has arrived. But this one aims to lay out the story of the film a little more clearly, perhaps for those who may not be familiar with all the tropes of spy films and whatnot. Aside from the obvious James Bond references between Colin Firth and the villain played by Samuel L. Jackson, there's plenty of other pop culture riffs here as well, just adding to the full blown entertainment on display.

J.J. Abrams Thanks Fans from Set of 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

Star Wars: Force for Change

Long before the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released, our first look at the sci-fi sequel came from vidoes release in conjunction with the Star Wars: Force for Change fundraiser that was created in coordination with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). The end of the fundraiser culminated with a single fan being granted the dream of visiting the set and getting a walk-on role in the film. Well, now director J.J. Abrams has returned from the set of Episode VII to thank everyone who donated and helped raise millions of dollars. You just might see a familiar droid and Wookiee. Watch!

Big Surprise: Mark Wahlberg Confirms Return for 'Transformers 5'

Mark Wahlberg

After the disaster that was Transformers: Age of Extinction, we know you're just chomping at the bits to get Mark Wahlberg back on the big screen as an inventor and friend of the Autobots. Well, the good news is that the actor is currently making the publicity rounds for this month's release of The Gambler, and of course he was asked about the future of the toy-selling franchise. MTV asked if he was coming back for the inevitable Transformers 5, and Wahlberg said, "Yeah, I committed to doing a couple more… you know I can’t speak for Mr. Bay, but something tells me we’ll be on the set soon.” Wait, what's that about Bay now?

Spielberg's Cold War Drama

In case you didn't know, Tom Hanks is reteaming with director Steven Spielberg for a fourth time after previously working together on Saving Private Ryan, Catch Me If You Can and The Terminal. Two out of three isn't bad, and now the next film on the way is something completely different, a Cold War drama that has been referred to as St. James Place but is officially untitled as of now. The film follows the negotiation to recovering a captured pilot from behind enemy lines. But it's not a battlefield drama as this particular fight was waged by lawyer James Donovan. That's who Hanks is playing, and we have a first look below.
