The Imitation Game
Several new photos are out of Benedict Cumberbatch as legendary British mathematician and cryptographer Alan Turing in the upcoming “The Imitation Game”. Entertainment Weekly has posted the shots which also include the first look at his fellow cast members including Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Allen Leech and Matthew Beard.

The LEGO Movie 2
“The LEGO Movie” directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord return to cinemas next week with “22 Jump Street” with early reviews painting it as least as good as that first film. So now that they’ve done the “21 Jump Street” sequel, how is the proposed sequel to “The LEGO Movie” coming along?

Lord tells THR: “[It’s] still in the stage where we’re sitting around talking about things and trying to figure out how to craft a story… One of the problems we made for ourselves is the brand of the movie is originality. So it’s really hard to sequelize that.” Miller adds: “We have a lot of themes and some ideas that we like.”

Sony Pictures has announced a 30th anniversary re-release of supernatural comedy classic “Ghostbusters”. Said re-release will take place on over 700 screens on Labor Day weekend at the end of August. The re-release will precede a new 30th anniversary Blu-ray disc set on September 16th containing both the films. [Source: EW]
