Aubrey Plaza maintains her good girl charm but not without her mischievous (albeit largely oblivious) smile for the poster of "The To Do List." The cast of degenerates looks on in the background. This has a very '80s college comedy feel to it. July 26th if this on your list.

Martin Freeman as the titular Hobbit stands amidst what can only be the entrance to the Lonely Mountain. He's out of his element, before something much more ancient than his kind, puny in comparison, but yet he's at the center of it all. It maintains the scheme and design that this saga has now held for over a decade. "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" hits theaters everywhere on December 13th.

Arnold Schwarzenegger will be in the 5th installment of the "Terminator" franchise. He's baaaack. (Source: The Arnold Fans)

From the bit of casting news to the man that Arnold passed the action movie torch over to (literally in "The Rundown"), Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. He tweeted a pic of himself getting made up for Hercules! Yes, he's playing the Greek legend himself in "Hercules: The Thracian Wars," due out July 24th, 2014. Read more over on JoBlo.

MOVIECLIPS has a new video countdown, "Top Ten Reasons Why We Love Dads." Enjoy and share it with your pop!

In honor of Father's Day (PSA: this coming Sunday everyone!) and the recently released "After Earth" Rotten Tomatoes considers "24 Frames: Certified Fresh Father and Son Films."

IMDb shares "Memorable Dads in Movies and TV."

And here's a massive list to close off this segment, Total Film's "50 Greatest Movie Dads."

Jon M. Chu will be returning as director to helm "G.I. Joe 3." I was a relative fan of "Retaliation" and the flair he brought to it from his "Step Up" films. (Source: Deadline)

Will Smith is this week's defendant in JoBlo's weekly column "Movie Jail." You can see the on the big screen now in "After Earth," my review.

Here's Scott Mendelson's weekend box office analysis wherein the record-breaking "The Purge" led the pack.

In honor of "Man of Steel" Rotten Tomatoes present "Total Recall: Superman Movies." How surprising is it that "Man of Steel" is now closer to "Superman III" (on the Tomatometer) than to the original?

Steven Spielberg is predicting an "implosion" in the film industry. (Source: The Hollywood Reporter)

The cinephiles over at Film School Rejects share "A Superman Father & Son" as part of their Scenes We Love series. Fitting for the weekend's release and the holiday at hand! Here's their write-up.

Here's MOVIECLIPS with the Weekly Five (five things to be excited about this week in the world of entertainment!).

Ready for something rather heartwarming? Watch some of "The Hobbit" actors (namely Evangeline Lilly, Orlando Bloom and Lee Pace) react to watching fan reactions to the new trailer which dropped yesterday. (You can see that trailer over on The Film Tome Facebook page) or later in this week's Trailer Round-Up. As cynical as I've been about the obvious money-making scheme behind this "Hobbit" trilogy this is a glimmer of hope that they're doing it all for the fans... (Source: The Hollywood Reporter)

Matt Singer gives us a timely history lesson about the first superhero movie of all time, "Superman and the Mole Man"!

MOVIECLIPS is known for some of the best mashups on the web. Check out this incredible June trailer mashup!

Are these "The Worst Movie Dads Ever"?


* * *


This simple but iconic (it's essentially the incredibly brief opening credits put on a page) poster for "Breaking Bad" informs us that the end is coming on August 11th... "All bad things must come to an end." Perfect.
