Newt

Newt: A couple of years ago, Pixar stopped development on Newt, about the last two blue-footed newts put into a lab to mate in order to stave off extinction for their species. Still, the studio has shared artwork from the project, and the latest examples from artist Katy Wu offer a peak at how lovely the movie would have looked. [Katy Wu via Bleeding Cool]

Guardians of the Galaxy: Rumors continue to swirl about casting prospects for the lead role in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, due out in 2014. In addition to Zachary Levi, Jim Sturgess and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the latest rumors are that Michael Rosenbaum (Lex Luthor on TV’s Smallville) and John Krasinski (TV's The Office) are under consideration to play Peter Quill (aka Star-Lord).

Let Me Explain: In a bold move, Lionsgate plans to release the comedy concert film Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain on July 4, against big-budget studio projects Lone Ranger and Despicable Me 2. Hart’s previous effort, Kevin Hart: Laugh at My Pain, was an unexpected indie success story, making more than $7.7 million at the box office in 2011. [Variety]

Evil Dead Trailer: The faint of heart should stay far away from the new NSFW, red-band, gory, bloody and gruesome trailer for Evil Dead. Set for release on April 12, the movie is a “new vision” of Sam Raimi’s horror classic, about the terrible things that happen to a small group of friends who visit a cabin in the woods and unleash unspeakable evil. Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas, Lou Taylor Pucci and Elizabeth Blackmore star. [Dare to Share Your Scare via First Showing]
