At MegaCon in Orlando, Florida this weekend, Nerdist reports that Agent Carter star Hayley Atwell was adamant that, given a chance, she'd bring the show back. Although that in no way guarantees we'll be getting more Peggy in our future, it's nice to know that Atwell, who's set to star next in ABC's Conviction, won't forget Peggy's value anytime soon.Read More

The Dude transcribes.
It's not the cast of Seventh Son's fault the movie is a stinker (for more on what stinks and who dealt it, look for our review tomorrow). At a press junket for the film last Saturday, Extreme Good Sports Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore and Ben Barnes were more than happy to talk about their experience working on what Bridges calls "the Big Lebowski prequel."Read More
Was that an AXE BONE WHIP?!
Seventh Son, starring Jeff Bridges as a witch-hunter, Ben Barnes as his first-day-on-the-job apprentice, and Julianne Moore as a dragon-witch thing, has been floundering around for a while now–we first told you about it over a year ago. Watching this new trailer, I can’t imagine why Legendary Pictures hasn't rushed to get this absolute gem into theaters.Read More

Here Be Dragons
Julianne Moore is a witch, I mean... she's a dragon-witch. Uh, maybe she's just a dragon? But she was still Julianne Moore. Julianne Moore. (This joke brought to you by the internet in 2003.)Read More

I know I'm not the only one who sees R.I.P.D. and reads B.P.R.D. Both are comic books from Dark Horse and both are based around the supernatural. But only one is going to be a movie out this summer. Based on the comic from Peter Lenkov and Lucas Marangon, R.I.P.D. stars Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges, and Mary-Louise Parker. Susana describes it as, "What if Jeff Bridges did a funny voice and then things exploded: The Movie." See what you think...

And So It Begins
In 2006 Jeff Bridges and director Vadim Perelman (House of Sand and Fog) came very close to producing a film adaptation of Lois Lowry's classic The Giver. The film never got off the ground, however, and in 2007 Warner Bros. took over the rights. Now, Bridges and producer Nikki Silver have re-acquired the rights and are planning to try again.Read More
Consider the following: rumor has it that a trailer for the as third Tron movie is hidden on the DVD of Tron: Legacy. A third Tron movie remains un-greenlit. The DVD doesn't come out until April 11th, in the UK. The American release date is unknown. But Ain't It Cool says it has confirmed, with pictures, that there is a teaser for Tron 3 that will be included in the DVD release of Tron: Legacy. They've even seen the footage, so don't click if you'd like to remain spoiler free. (The rest of our post has no spoilers.)Read More
There never was a better argument for not allowing your kids to stay up and watch SNL. Cookie Monster, who has recently put in a Betty White-esque bid to host Saturday Night Live, got treated to an early Christmas present by host Jeff Bridges: an appearance on the show. So, if you ever wanted to see the Dude sing "Silver Bells" with a muppet, hit the jump.Read More
The trailer has dropped for True Grit, the Coen Brothers' forthcoming adaptation of Charles Portis' 1968 novel of the same name (previously adapted for a film starring John Wayne) and in its latest iteration, starring Jeff Bridges, Josh Brolin, Matt Damon, and Hailee Steinfeld. Synopsis:
Fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross’s (Hailee Steinfeld) father has been shot in cold blood by the coward Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin), and she is determined to bring him to justice. Enlisting the help of a trigger-happy, drunken U.S. Marshal, Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges), she sets out with him — over his objections — to hunt down Chaney. Her father’s blood demands that she pursue the criminal into Indian territory and find him before a Texas Ranger named LeBoeuf (Matt Damon) catches him and brings him back to Texas for the murder of another man.(via 21st Century Boy) Read More
If this is real, it would be a leak of some magnitude: One YouTube user, alexdaft26, has uploaded what purports to be the entirety of the Tron Legacy soundtrack as composed by Daft Punk. From afar, it sounds well Daft Punk-y and like it certainly could be the soundtrack to a movie about people who wear glowing suits and ride around on lightcycles, but there are a few reasons to suspect it isn't: I'll confess I haven't gotten the chance to listen to the whole thing and must rely on second-hand information, but it supposedly does not quite match with what official music has been released by Disney.
Sonic comparisons aside, the biggest reason to suspect these might not be real is that you can still listen to them: The tracks were uploaded on July 26th, eons ago in Internet time, and started getting major attention as of yesterday, with the compilation track racking up close to 30,000 hits on YouTube. Disney has been very protective of Tron stuff, so it's a good bet that if these are real, they'll be gone by the end of the day today. Which is all the more reason to hit the jump and listen to them now while you can: Think of it as an investment in being up on things.Read More
