‘Doctor Strange’ Eyes Oscar Nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor for Mystery Role

Ever since Marvel formally announced the casting of Benedict Cumberbatch as Sorcerer Supreme in their upcoming ‘Doctor Strange’ film, we haven’t heard much else about the project. Set to be directed by Scott Derrickson, the film is currently scheduled for a 2016 release date, so it’s about time that we started hearing a little more about who else will be joining Cumberbatch as the project heads closer to production—like Chiwetel Ejiofor, who is reportedly in talks for a role.

Get Your Trophy Trivia With These 15 Oscar Facts!

Here's some information for you: if you somehow ever win an Oscar, you only have 45 seconds up on that stage to thank anyone and everyone in your entire life.

Or, you could do what Alfred Hitchcock did with the shortest Oscars acceptance speech on record: just say, "thank you" and walk away.

The movies you'll look back on and wonder exactly how the heck it ever got nominated for an Oscar.

Ranking the 2015 Oscar Snubs From “Totally Forgivable” to “WTF?”

Yep, it’s that time of the year again. The 2015 Oscar nominations are here and it’s time for everyone to get outraged and cynical over which movies get the opportunity to take home statuettes of naked golden dudes. Sure, we always tell ourselves that the Academy Awards don’t really matter and that a film’s legacy will live or die for reasons beyond trophies, but we always end up getting angry about these things anyway. However, this year’s biggest snubs seems more egregious than usual and require slightly more yelling and stamping of feet.

The Five Most Pleasant Surprises Among the 2015 Oscar Nominees

Okay, so there was a fair amount of disappointment around the 2015 Academy Award nominations. Everything was not awesome for ‘The Lego Movie,’ robbed of a Best Animated Movie nod, and David Oyelowo’s dreams of a Best Actor nomination vanished when Steve Carell and Bradley Cooper’s names were mentioned instead. ‘Force Majeure’ got snubbed for a Best Foreign Language Film nomination and ‘Selma’’s Ava Duvernay was robbed in the Best Director Category. I just keep looking at the list of nominations and playing “Sad Trombone” over and over again. It’s basically the official theme song of the 2015 Academy Awards.

The 2015 Oscar Nominations: ‘Birdman’ and ‘Grand Budapest’ Tops With Nine Each

Well, that was interesting. Just when you think you've got the Oscars figured out, they throw you a huge curve ball. Or, maybe what's so surprising about this year's nominations is how nothing is really different?

2015 Golden Globes Winners!

The 2015 Golden Globes winners will be revealed during the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler-hosted awards ceremony, broadcast live on Sunday, January 11, 2015 at 5 p.m. PST/8 p.m. EST on NBC.

The 2015 Golden Globes winners are considered somewhat of a primer for the upcoming Oscars (both of which feature many of the same big Hollywood names and movies of the past year), but not exactly a perfect predictor either. Many movies and actors have won at the Golden Globes only to not even be nominated at the Oscars.

Check out the full list of 2015 Golden Globes winners below—which we'll bold as soon as they're announced on the telecast—and let us know what you think in the comments. Did your picks win big?

‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Visual Effects Reel Highlights Some Incredible CGI

Having visited the set of a few Marvel movies, we can say that there are a lot of fully-constructed sets and practical effects in use on their big superhero movies. But, watching this new highlight reel from ILM on the making of ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ it’s pretty remarkable to see how they’re able to create full shots out of almost nothing.
