How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days

First Look: Bryan Singer Shows Nixon in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'

We've already seen some of the mutants on set for X-Men: Days of Future Past including a new look for Halle Berry as Storm, some 70s fashion for Hugh Jackman and Nicholas Hoult and a fully made-upJennifer Lawrence as Mystique. Now Bryan Singer has turned his camera on another character in the film: President Richard Nixon. In a new photo the director revealed on Twitter, there's some sort of "pivotal meeting" in the Oval Office of The White House. Singer recently told Collider the actor playing Nixon was "an interesting casting choice," but the shot is too far away to make out the actor. Maybe Singer called his Usual Suspects star Kevin Spacey, a master of many impressions, to take on the role?  Read more.
1939 Classic 'Wizard of Oz' Set for IMAX 3D Re-Release This Year

We knew it would happen one day. They finally converted The Wizard of Oz to glorious, gimmicky 3D. But - why?! The official announcements comes from USA Today (via SlashFilm), where they reveal plans for a limited one-week IMAX 3D special engagement of the 1939 Oscar-winning technicolor musical classic. The film is getting a restoration for another Blu-Ray release and is the first high profile classic 3D upgrade, now being compared to color in Oz. "The sound was exceptional, the sharpness was exceptional, but it's the color that stands out. What they could do is truly amazing, maybe what people felt when they first saw it." Read more.

Forest Whitaker is Martin Luther King Jr. in Greengrass' 'Memphis'

United 93 director Paul Greengrass has been trying to make Memphis, a docu-style drama about the final days of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., since January of 2011, but when Universal Pictures backed out, the project ended up falling apart. However, late last fall, it sounded like funding was finally coming back together for the project, and now even more progress is being made with a leading man in talks for the pivotal role of MLK. The Wrap reports that Oscar winner Forest Whitaker is in talks for the passion project from Greengrass which is being backed by Veritas Films and French financier Wild Bunch.

Sam Mendes Might End Up Directing the Next Two James Bond Films

James Bond news just keeps coming out of the woodwork. Following our exclusive news that Drivedirector Nicolas Winding Refn was in the running to direct the next film in the 007 franchise, some other names like Christopher Nolan, Ang Lee, Shane Black and Tom Hooper also surfaced. But then all those names seemed inconsequential when it was revealed that producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli had gone back to Skyfall director Sam Mendes and were in talks to have him return for James Bond 24 after finishing his previous theater commitments. Now his commitment to Her Majesty's Secret Service might be a bit bigger. Keep reading here.
Two New TV Shows I'm Excited to Checkout this Summer

Anthony E. Zuiker, creator of the CSI franchise, brings the world of murder and intrigue to his first primetime reality series, Whodunnit?, airing in nine episodes this summer on the ABC Television Network. Cris Abrego partners with Zuiker for the new series.
Whodunnit? puts 13 contestants’ investigative skills to the test in a riveting mystery reality competition. Players will use a variety of crime scene investigation techniques to meticulously uncover evidence in a series of puzzling murders and to ultimately reveal who among them is the killer. Some players will form alliances in the competition, while others will choose to go it alone in their quest for the reward of $250,000. The contestants will reside on a glamorous estate called Rue Manor with a steward, Butler Giles (Gildart Jackson), and each week must solve a new crime in order to advance in the game. Failure to solve the crime will lead to a player’s demise, until only three are left. In the final episode, one player will unmask the killer and take home the $250,000 reward.

Hollywood Game Night
Every week, ordinary people and celebrities (like Amy Poehler) gather for a great party. Then two teams made up of a civilian and celebrities compete in a series of outrageous games. Are you a walking encyclopedia of celebrity trivia? An expert on all things pop culture? If so, you just might have a chance to take home up to $25,000. Not bad for a night's work!
