Movie News Rush 16

"The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader"

The news - The teaser trailer for the film has finally hit online. I'm excited to see this franchise continue even though general interest for it is pretty low.

"Scott Pilgrim vs. the World"

The news - Another new trailer for the film. Is it just me or is this film looking better and better?

"X-Men: First Class"

The news - James McAvoy was cast as a young Professor Xavier a while back, but now there's some news casting news out. Bankamin Walker, star of the Public Theater’s “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson,” will play Beast while Michael Fassbender ("Inglourious Basterds") is in talks to play a young Magneto. What other mutant characters will be in the film and who will play them? More news will likely be forthcoming as Matthew Vauhgn ("Kick-Ass") prepares the film for its June 2011 release.

The news - Heat Vision reports that Alex Skarsgard ("True Blood"), son of actor Stellan Skarsgard, has signed on to star in "Battleship," a movie based on the Hasbro board game and being directed by Peter Berg ("Hancock"). Skarsgard will star as a "straight and narrow" naval officer whom Taylor Kitsch, who was cast a few months ago, idolizes. There's probably going to be lots more news on this upcoming film since it doesn't hit theaters until June 2012.
