The beloved Pixar animated film Finding Nemo came out in 2003, and not almost 13 years later we finally have our first trailer to the sequel, Finding Dory. Finding Dory will be focused on the amnesiac character Dory, and will explore the idea of her being reunited with her family. The film will take place six months after the events of Finding Nemo and will be set off the coast of California.
As most of you are aware, a Baywatch movie starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Zac Efron is currently in development that will be helmed by Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon. Today comes news that a short list of actresses for the film has surfaced, which includes: Johnson’s San Andreas co-star Alexandra Daddario, The Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev, Storm from the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse Alexandra Shipp, Pretty Little Liars Ashley Benson, Shelley Hennig (Teen Wolf), Bianca Santos (The Duff) and Denyse Tontz (Big Time Rush).

John Wick 2 is currently in production in New York city and several new and returning cast members have been added to the action sequel. According to the report some of the notable additions are John Leguizamo returning as Aurelio, Lance Reddick returns as Hotel Continental manager Charon, Bridget Moynahan returns as John Wick’s deceased wife Helen Wick and new addition, actor Peter Stormare.
In a recent interview with Collider’s own Steve Weintraub, Batman v Superman producer Charles Roven sat down with us to talk about several projects. When it was mentioned that we’d love to see a 4-hour cut of the new DC movie, Roven said the following: “I don’t know if you’ll ever get the 4-hour version, but there may be something that’s coming along that might be slightly less long than that.”
OPENING THIS WEEK (brought to you by AMC Theatres)
One of the films opening in wide release this week is the true life story of The 33. Disaster strikes on Aug. 5, 2010, as a copper and gold mine collapses in Chile, trapping 33 men underground. With more than 2,000 feet of rock in their way, members of a rescue team work tirelessly for 69 days to save the seemingly doomed crew. Beneath the rubble, the miners begin an epic quest to survive, contending with suffocating heat and the need for food and water. With family, friends and the rest of the world watching, it becomes a race against time and a true test of the human spirit.

Konal Wood writes: Now that all the major spy films have been released this year, how would you rank Kingsman, Spy, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, Man From U.N.C.L.E and Spectre? Thank you very much.
Rodrigo Gonzalez writes: Hey Colliders, big fan from Chile, I watch the shows everyday. I love Star Wars to death, I’ve been watching them with my family since I was 4 in ’97. Recently John said the prequels couldn’t be remade because they’re canon. Then, why don’t just make them “uncanon” or something. Is really the Star Wars canon so sacred? Is there a law or something? Because I feel like I can’t see the big deal here. Thanks and may the force be with you.
