Next installment of Pirates of the Caribbean to be filmed exclusively in 3D.Next installment of Pirates of the Caribbean to be filmed exclusively in 3D.

Yes, the next you see Jack Sparrow on the big screen you'll be able see him in multiple dimensions. Filming in 3D offers up obvious some advantages over adding useless effects in post - though you may up seeing a bevy of Avatar-like effects (not necessarily a bad thing). POTC4 will be swash-buckling into theaters May 2011.

A new crop of images have surfaced online for the upcoming Tron sequel.A new crop of images have surfaced online for the upcoming Tron sequel.

I'm loving the upgrades to some of the items from the original Tron and seeing how they've been reimagined for this generation. C'mon, you know you'd want to take a ride on a light cycle. And remember kids, Tron Legacy is due in theaters this December. END OF LINE.

Looks like we'll be seeing John Malkovich versus Peter Parker for Spider-Man 4.Looks like we'll be seeing John Malkovich versus Peter Parker for Spider-Man 4.

Interesting choice of casting for a Spider-Man villian. That is of course, if the movie manages to see the light of day (script and production issues have been plaguing the project according to rumors). Oh well, it can't be any worse than Spider-Man 3... can it?

Avatar flick still doing pretty well for James Cameron and company.Avatar flick still doing pretty well for James Cameron and company.

The film has raked in a whopping $232 billion thus far. Source website seems to think that Avatar is well on it's way to reaching the likes of Star Wars ($460.9 million) and maybe even Cameron's own Titantic ($1.8 billion). Not sure how you can equate $232 million to $1.8 billion that quickly though.
