Back at Comic-Con 2012, we saw a surprise teaser trailer for the 'Godzilla' reboot. It looked amazing. But what we didn't get was any clear idea when the film would start filming or hit theaters.

'Top Gun 2' was once a high priority at Paramount with Tom Cruise and director Tony Scott all set to return - some 25 years later - to classic 80s hit.

'Skyfall' is a movie very much intended to return James Bond to his classic roots; roots established by actors like Sean Connery.

'Ghostbusters 3' - after what seems like years of endless rumors - finally seems ready to actually happen with filming set to begin in summer 2013 with a release date in 2014, celebrating the 30th anniversary of the original film.
It was a debate that had raged since 'Titanic' hit theaters 25 years ago: did Rose leave Jack to die by not letting him up on the board as they floated in the ocean. James Cameron maintains that the board would have only been big enough for one of them and Jack died valiantly, letting Rose live.

'Die Hard 5' (or 'A Good Day to Die Hard' as it's properly known) is an actual movie that's actually happening.

And now you can get a first look at the McClane boys in action.
