Godzilla: Seeking to build anticipation, the folks behind the upcoming reboot of Godzilla have kept the appearance of the giant beast shrouded in secrecy. But with the release date of May 16, 2014 slowly approaching, some tie-in merchandise has begun to pop up, including a preorder listing for a book with an unofficial cover that teases a ferocious-looking monster.

Tolkien: On the eve of the release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, one more project inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien has been announced. Tolkien, a big-screen biographical portrait of the writer, is in the works; it's said to focus especially on his experiences in college and as a soldier during World War I, where many of his close friends died in combat. The proposed movie would "examine Tolkien's life story and how these experiences led to and shaped his work."  [Los Angeles Times]

Tell No One: Gavin O'Connor (Warrior), who stepped in on short notice for director Lynne Ramsay after she departed the Natalie Portman Western Jane Got a Gun earlier this year, is in negotiations to replace another director -- but this time he has a little more notice. O'Connor will be taking the reins of a new big-screen version of Harlan Coben's novel Tell No One, which was made into a terrific French-language thriller in 2006; Ben Affleck was previously on board to direct and possibly star.

A Haunted House 2 Trailer: Marlon Wayans tries to start over in A Haunted House 2, marrying Jaime Pressly and moving into another house, which just happens to be haunted. The first trailer lays out the premise and the style of comedy quite effectively. The movie will creep into theaters on March 28, 2014. [Movie Clips]
