Did you think that bit at the Oscars where host Ellen DeGeneres wandered into the audience to tweet a selfie with A-listers like Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper was a refreshing moment of spontaneity in an otherwise scripted affair? Wrong. The viral photo was actually part of a $20 million Samsung advertising campaign designed to promote the Galaxy Note 3, the phone that took the picture.

How Vin Diesel Punk’d His Way Into the Marvel Universe

It was the headline that sent the fanboy world abuzz: Vin Diesel has mysterious meetings with Marvel to discuss an upcoming movie. The word was leaked by Diesel himself on his popular Facebook page, but with precious few details. At the time, all we could do was wildly speculate. Was it Vision? Luke Cage? Thanos?! It turns out it was nothing. Vin Diesel never had a meeting with Marvel; he was just f---ing around on social media, trying to get a rise out of comic book fans.

‘Mr. Peabody and Sherman’ Trailer: History in the Making

Fans of the original 'Mr. Peabody and Sherman' shorts from 'Rocky and His Friends' probably won't find much to like in this new trailer for the DreamWorks animated film. But, then again, they're probably a good 50 years older than the target audience for the new 'Mr. Peabody and Sherman' movie.

‘Calvin and Hobbes’ Creator Breaks His Legendary Silence, Talks About an Animated Movie

Since publishing the last 'Calvin and Hobbes' comic strip on December 31, 1995, Bill Watterson, the notoriously private creator behind the series, has only granted one interview (an e-mail exchange with his hometown newspaper, the Plain Dealer, on the 15th anniversary of the strip). Many have tried to get in touch with Mr. Watterson over the years (and a documentary is scheduled to hit theaters this year on that very topic) and almost all have failed.

But, inexplicably, Watterson has emerged from hiding and spoke at length about the legacy of 'Calvin and Hobbes' and the potential for an animated movie.

Matt Damon in Negotiations to Return to ‘Bourne’ Franchise

Just as recently as earlier this year, Matt Damon was talking that a return to the 'Bourne' franchise that turned him into an A-list action star was highly unlikely. But, this is Hollywood and sometimes what is completely unlikely one day (like Ben Affleck as Batman), becomes a reality the next. And so, Matt Damon is in negotiations to return for another 'Bourne' film along with 'Bourne Ultimatum' director Paul Greengrass.

Johnny Depp Will Return to Star in ‘Alice in Wonderland 2′

After 'The Lone Ranger' opened to poor reviews and disappointing box office, Johnny Depp was criticized for his recent acting choices. From 'Pirates of the Caribbean 4' to 'Dark Shadows,' many accused Depp of going through the motions, all-too-happy to cash his paycheck to star in whatever Disney or Tim Burton was asking him to star in, regardless of the quality.

In a related story, Johnny Depp is in final negotiations to return as The Mad Hatter in Disney's 'Alice in Wonderland 2.'

‘Cinderella’ Reboot Hires Kenneth Branagh to Direct

After the success of 'Alice in Wonderland' (over $1 billion - yes, with a B - worldwide), Disney has been hot to reboot their Disney princess movies. With a 'Sleepy Beauty' reboot on the way (in the form of Angelina Jolie's 'Maleficent'), the next live-action princess film on the way was scheduled to be 'Cinderella' but that was before director Mark Romanek abruptly left the project.
