Scoot McNairy Continues to Rise with Roles in 'The Rover' and 'Frank'

Scoot McNairy

Scoot McNairy may not be a household name, but he's been steadily working in front of the camera since 2001. Bouncing around from movies like Killing Them Softly to shows like "How I Met Your Mother" and "The Shield," McNairy really began to get noticed in the critical community with his performance in the low budget 2010 film Monsters, written and directed by Gareth Edwards (who is now helming the Godzilla remake for Legendary Pictures). Now Deadline reports that he's just joined the cast of two other films: The Rover, starring Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce, and also Frank, opposite Michael Fassbender.

Watch: Jeremy Renner is a Terrible Avenger on 'Saturday Night Live'

The Avengers on SNL

Now that The Avengers has hit theaters and made it all the way to Blu-Ray and DVD shelves, the hype around the superhero ensemble has dulled down a bit. Of course, Iron Man 3 is the first installment in Phase Two of Marvel's cinematic universe and the first trailer for the sequel certainly riled fans up a bit. Now it's time to poke fun at The Avengers thanks to "Saturday Night Live," complete with Jeremy Renner (who served as host this past weekend) reprising his role as Hawkeye. However, this version of Hawkeye seems to be a little more inept than the film's character. The sketch is amusing, but very awkward.

Liam Neeson Might Pull 'All Nighter' as a Hit Man in New Crime Thriller

Liam Neeson

A lot of people talk about how Liam Neeson's career as an action icon really took off with Taken, ignoring the fact that just a few years before he had starred in Gangs of New York, Kingdom of Heaven, and Batman Begins. But Hollywood loves a comeback, and if that's the angle Neeson has to play to keep locking down action leads, then we're all for it. Along with the terrible Taken 2, the 60-year-old actor has also recently headlined The Grey, Unknown, and Non-Stop, and now The Wrap adds one more project to that list. Neeson is negotiating to star in The All Nighter (aka Run All Night), in which he'll play an aging hit man.

First Look: Karl Urban Reprising His Role as Vaako in 'Riddick' Sequel

Riddick

Aside from seeing a first look at Vin Diesel and Katee Sackhoff in the anticipated sci-fi sequel Riddick, the official hype machine hasn't really kicked off for the film just yet. However, the MPAA did recently give it the R-rating that everyone was hoping for, so a theatrical release will likely happen in 2013. In the meantime, director David Twohy is hard at work finalizing visual effects and sound mixing for the sequel, and every now and then he has a good update for his blog. Well, now we have a brand new first look photo featuring Karl Urban reprising his role as Vaako, and he's not even wearing a helmet. See the photo below!

New Photo from Blomkamp's 'Elysium' with Sci-Fi Armed Matt Damon

Elysium

This past summer, a slew of new buzz for Elysium arrived after some promising footage was screened at Comic-Con, an interesting viral campaign kicked off and we interviewed director Neill Blomkamp about his mysterious sci-fi film. We've only seen one official photo of Matt Damon in the film wearing some sort of robotic arm and weapons, and now another one has arrived that is essentially more of the same. The film was pushed back to a release next August, but hopefully with this new photo coming from Sony, that means the first trailer for the film isn't too far behind. We're definitely interested to see a lot more. Look below!

New 'Man of Steel' Trailer But NOT 'The Wolverine' with 'The Hobbit'

Man of Steel / The Wolverine

Briefly: Whether or not you're excited about The Hobbit, it sounds like the first part of the Peter Jackson adaptation is going to be the movie to see this winter if you want to catch the hottest trailers on the big screen. We already know a 9-minute prologue for Star Trek Into Darkness will arrive with select IMAX 3D screenings of the film, and a regular theatrical trailer will hit the rest of the traditional 2D and 3D theaters. Now Lebanese Cinema Movie Guide (via Comic Book Movie) reports that a new trailer for Man of Steel and the first teaser for The Wolverine will make their debut before The Hobbit as well. Of course, these trailers could arrive online before or just shortly thereafter The Hobbit hits theaters, so stay tuned.

Ryan Gosling Beat to Hell in New Photo from Refn's 'Only God Forgives'

Only God Forgives

After directing Ryan Gosling in Drive last year, plenty of film fans are looking forward to Nicholas Winding Refn's new film Only God Forgives (especially now that Gosling has departed the remake of Logan's Run that Refn is supposedly still directing). We've only seen one still from the film so far, but now a new sort of promo photo has emerged, and for those who would prefer to see Gosling looking pretty, this one is going to be hard to swallow. The black and white photo with Gosling's face beaten to hell is likely from the American Film Market with some simple text on top to promote the film there earlier this month.

Another Gigantic Sculpture for 'The Hobbit' Installed in New Zealand

The Hobbit New Zealand

New Zealand's Hobbit mania hasn't stopped yet. We've seen airline promo videos, giant Gollum sculptures, massive Dwarf silhouettes, and now local the movie theater where it's all beginning has received its own humongous Gandalf statue for the premiere. The Embassy Theater (Facebook) in downtown Wellington, New Zealand is hosting the world premiere of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey just next week, 9 days from now (on November 28th), and in preparation for the event a huge Gandalf at Bilbo's house in the Shire display was installed right above it. Damn are they going all out, but I'm all for it!

Indie Trailer Sunday: Touching 'Any Day Now' Starring Alan Cumming

Any Day Now Trailer

They made him a promise. He made them a family. This trailer is one of those that by the end of watching it, it might be hard to hold back your tears because it's so touching and looks extremely good. Any Day Now stars Tony Award winning actor Alan Cumming along with "Raising Hope" star Garret Dillahunt as a gay couple who come to shelter an abandoned teenage boy with Down syndrome named Marco, played by Isaac Leyva. It looks like Alan Cumming delivers one of his best performances to date, and I hope it gets him some awards, which is I'm sure what they're hoping for, too. Give this a look - it's worth watching.

Brad Bird Confirms He's Not Directing 'Star Wars: Episode VII' Either

Brad Bird

Over the last few weeks since the Star Wars: Episode VII and Lucasfilm news hit, rumors have been rampant, with real news following closely behind. A little as a week ago, Frank Marshall said that they were close to choosing their director for the new Star Wars film, and another name that has been at the top of everyone's most wanted list is Brad Bird, of The Incredibles, Ratatouille and his live-action debut Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol. There was an election-like video campaign floating around in support of Bird, along with rumors that his new sci-fi project 1952 was actually the Star Wars movie, but we debunked that. Now the filmmaker himself has taken to twitter to confirm, once and for all, that he's "not doing Star Wars."

Must Watch: First Trailer for 'Now You See Me' Illusionist Heist Movie

Now You See Me Trailer

"Whatever this grand trick is, it was designed a long time ago." Summit has finally debuted the first trailer for Now You See Me, the awesome illusionist heist movie directed by Louis Leterrier, of Incredible Hulk. The team is made up of Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson and perhaps even Michael Caine. They perform elaborate shows, rob banks during the show, and shower the money on the audience, setting the cops after them. Morgan Freeman and Mark Ruffalo also star, and all-in-all it looks like a fun time. I've been hooked since I first heard about this, and I'm looking forward to catching it.

First Two TV Spots for 'Jack Reacher' Featuring More Cruise & Herzog

Jack Reacher

If he's coming for you… you deserve it. Damn! What a thing to say in a TV spot. Paramount has unveiled the first two 30-second TV spots for Jack Reacher, the upcoming action movie starring Tom Cruise adapted from Lee Child's novels. We've seen at least two full trailers so far, and while I can't honestly say I'm that interested in this, these two spots are actually making me pay attention for once. The first one features more of filmmaker Werner Herzog as the villain exclaiming "beg for you life" in only the way Herzog can. The second one makes Cruise's Reacher out to be Bryan Mills from Taken, but both look damn good. Check 'em!

Carrie Fisher Back for 'Star Wars' and Billy Dee Williams is Interested?

Carrie Fisher and Billy Dee Williams

The only word we've received about the return of any characters from the original Star Wars trilogy was an unnamed source saying that Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher were up for returning. Since then, there's been no confirmation that the new trilogy (with a treatment written by Toy Story 3 writer Michael Arndt being handed out to directors) would bring back Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia. Well, apparently one of those characters is definitely returning as a reader at TheForce.net talked to Carrie Fisher at a book signing yesterday, and the actress point blank confirmed her involvement.
