The Wolverine

The Wolverine: Director James Mangold has been generously sharing images from behind the scenes of The Wolverine. One reveals the logistics involved in shooting a bullet train sequence, and the other is from a location shoot for a funeral. Hugh Jackman stars in the movie, which is set in Japan and will be opening in theaters on July 26. [Coming Soon]

Fast & Furious 7: With four-time Fast & Furious director Justin Lin bowing out of Fast & Furious 7 due to the fast-tracked production for release next summer, Universal has turned to James Wan, who has specialized in making horror movies such as The Conjuring and Insidious: Chapter 2, both due out later this year. If negotiations are successful, Wan will be directing from a script by Chris Morgan, who wrote the previous four installments in the franchise. [Deadline]

Point Break: The quest to remake every movie ever made continues with Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 surfing crime drama Point Break. Ericson Core has been hired to direct a new version; he’s a veteran cinematographer (the original The Fast and the Furious) who previously helmed football drama Invincible with Mark Wahlberg. The remake is set “in the world of international extreme sports.” Filming is scheduled to start at the end of the year. [Deadline]

Now You See Me Trailer: In the newest trailer for the star-filled Now You See Me, a group of apparently altruistic magicians rob a bank as part of their act and give the money away to their audience. The FBI is not pleased. Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson and Isla Fisher lead the ensemble; the movie is due out on May 31. [Apple via MovieClips]
