The Gambler

The Gambler: The first photos from The Gambler reveal Mark Wahlberg in various stages of a dangerous addiction. The actor, who stars as a gambling-obsessed college professor, lost some 60 pounds for the role, but the high school dropout says the greater challenge was "being believable as a teacher." (Wahlberg recently completed high school online and finally received a diploma.) Brie Larson and Jessica Lange also star; the movie opens in theaters on December 19. [USA Today]

Independence Day

Independence Day 2: Will Smith remains (evidently) indecisive about the opportunity to appear in a sequel to Independence Day, but costar Jeff Goldblum is ready to return. He says that producer Dean Devlin and director Roland Emmerich told him they "have a part" for him "in what they hope will be a plan to make another one pretty soon." So everything remains quite vague, but at least Goldblum's nervous, anxious and very, very smart David Levison character is included at this point. [Time.com]
