mila kunis is beautifulMila Kunis has been cast in Warner Brothers’ post-apocalyptic western, The Book of Eli. She joins Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman in this film about a warrior (Washington) who must fight across the country while protecting a book that might be the key to saving humanity.

The film is being helmed by Albert and Allen Hughes, the team behind 2001’s lackluster graphic novel adaptation From Hell. The brothers also wrote and directed Menace II Society and Dead Presidents.

The film starts shooting in January, so we shouldn’t expect to see it until January of 2010 at the earliest. Personally, I don’t like Denzel that much, but I have an undying love for Kunis and Oldman.  Add that to my love of westerns (even weird sci-fi westerns) and my butt just might be in the theater on opening day.

Terminator Salvation doesn’t hit theaters until May 22, 2009, but fans (myself included) are craving any and everything from the new entry in the Terminator series.  It is a constant mix of excitement (the Comic-Con footage looked pretty good) and nerves (is McG really directing this?).

Earlier this week, a behind the scenes featurette and concept art for some of the new killing machines were leaked online. The video was quickly removed from the web, but a few of the pictures are still floating around, you can view them at CanMag.

Dreamworks Animation have released an all new trailer for Monsters vs Aliens, an upcoming 3D animated flick from Rob Letterman (Shark Tale) and Conrad Vernon (Shrek 2).

After aliens invade America (“the only country that UFOs ever seem to land in”, heh), the President is forced to enlist monsters that the military has secretly been rounding up to save the planet. Included in the mix of monsters are a 49 foot 11 inch tall woman, “the brilliant but insect-headed Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D.; the macho half-ape, half-fish The Missing Link; the gelatinous and indestructible B.O.B.; and the 350-foot grub called Insectosaurus”.

Zackary Quinto as Spock

Six exclusive still images from J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek sequel/reboot have been released around the web. Included in the mix is a striking shot of Zackary Quinto as Spock (seen above).  The project has so far been very tight lipped, but the countdown to its May release has officially begun.  Click here to see the full version of the above picture and to get links to the other five pictures (which include Chris Pine as James T. Kirk, Eric Bana as Nero).  The sci-fi epic hits theaters on May 8th, 2009.
