Supporting performance awards went to Kate Winslet (Steve Jobs) and Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies). Fourteen films received at least one award. [Movie City News]


Our Idiot Brother

An Ideal Home: Paul Rudd and Steve Coogan will star as a married couple in An Ideal Home, to be directed by Andrew Fleming. The comedy/drama follows what happens when the grandson of a celebrity (Coogan) unexpectedly shows up. Rudd and Coogan appeared together in Our Idiot Brother (2011, above), while Coogan and Fleming previously worked together on 2008's Hamlet 2. [THR]



Spawn: The first big-screen version of Spawn back in 1997 did not turn out exactly as creator Todd McFarlane wished. McFarlane has now completed his own script for a new version and says it will be different than most other comic book adaptations, in that it will be neither a superhero nor an action movie. "I'd put it more into horror/suspense/supernatural genre," McFarlane says. "If you take the movie The Departed meets Paranormal Activity, something like that." []



Ghostbusters Teaser: The first teaser for Paul Feig's new Ghostbusters presents tantalizing glimpses of footage from the reboot. Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones star, with Chris Hemsworth leading the supporting cast. The full trailer will be released on March 3; the movie will open in theaters on July 15. [Movieclips]
