Cycle of Lies: In association with Paramount Pictures, J.J. Abrams’ production company, Bad Robot, has secured movie rights to Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong, a forthcoming book by Juliet Macur, a reporter for The New York Times. The book, due to be published in June, is reportedly based on “unprecedented access to the key players in the drama” and claims that it will “expose corruption at all levels of the sport.” [The Hollywood Reporter]

Batmobile: The automobile driven by Batman in the '60s TV show and movie has sold at auction for $4.2 million. George Barris, who customized a 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car for the show, was the original and only owner of the Batmobile until now. There is no word on which, if any gadgets deployed in the show, such as the twin rear parachutes and smoke dispenser, are included. [The Guardian]

Evil Dead Trailer: The first trailer for Evil Dead was bloody, gory and gruesome. The new trailer is a bit more family friendly, that is, if your family enjoys creepy whispers, blood-curdling screaming and unsettling imagery. Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas, Lou Taylor Pucci and Elizabeth Blackmore star; the movie will drench theaters in blood on April 12. [The Film Stage]
