Rise of the Planet of the Apes
The world's hardest-working motion-captured chimp actor, Andy Serkis, reveals the basic story of what's next for Caesar:
"This was never a film saying Apes are good, humans are bad or apes are bad. It was always about the difficult gray areas of a species dominating a planet. I think wherever it goes — and it is in its infancy in terms of where we are taking the story — it will certainly have conflict and it will certainly have Caesar having to make decisions about managing his own kind and, also, the survivors of the virus and making sure they can co-exist. I believe that's where it is going."

Reboot director Len Wiseman says he is close to finished with his director's cut of the movie, and that he's very happy with star Colin Farrell and "the combination of mystery and emotion and action." He also described the particular challenges of making sure that both interpretations of the movie work, either that these events are really happening or are just a memory implant in Quaid's mind:
"You realize there is so much to be discussed about the dual stories. There's the reality story and there's the fantasy element. They're running parallel together, so you always have to keep those two alive. That's the inherent nature of the concept and what makes the concept so cool.
"I will say, at the same time, this made all of the conversation I had with my cast fun. Every little detail has to apply to both scenarios. My actors would ask, 'So, in this scene, am I - because I know that I'm lying, because I'm the double agent - how well do I act? It sounds like a silly question, but do you want the other character to see through that or am I so good as a double agent that you would never suspect I'm the best buddy or the wife.' It's all of those little things. So, that's my long way of saying the dual nature of the story was the best thing about this."

World War Z
The Killing star Mireille Enos, who plays star Brad Pitt's wife in Marc Forster's adaptation of Max Brooks's novel, confirmed recent speculation that this movie could be the start of a whole zombie franchise:
"It was [going to be a trilogy] from the beginning. That was the hope, that if the first one turned out the way we all anticipate, that it would be great to turn it into a trilogy. It's exciting."
She also says this movie could kill off the entire vampire and zombie genres, which is something I could totally get on board with:
"It's like zombies are the new vampires. It's taking over. But somebody said to me this movie might end the zombie genre because, after this, what else is there to do? It's huge!"
Inglourious Basterds star Diane Kruger has reportedly been cast alongside Hanna's Saoirse Ronan in the adaptation of Stephanie Meyer's other book, which is set in a post-apocalyptic world in which parasitic aliens known as the Souls have overrun Earth and killed off most of humanity. Here's the description of Kruger's character, The Seeker:
The Seeker...is charged with overseeing the conversion of a young rebel soldier (Ronan) whose consciousness has been infiltrated by Wanderer, a soul that has taken control of bodies and minds but who is daunted by the young human's spirit - and obsessed with the memories of her boyfriend and her brother - and sets out to track them down. The Seeker pursues her, knowing that the conversion of the rebel will lead to the discovery and eradication of the rebel movement.
Snow White and the Huntsman
Here's a new sneak peek for the self-described gritty take on the Snow White story. The clip focuses mostly on Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen and Thor star Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman while playing down the whole "Kristen Stewart is in this too!" angle.
