Rum Diary

Black Mass/Transcendence: Johnny Depp has committed to making two movies by the end of summer, finalizing discussions that began some time ago. First, he’ll star in Transcendance, the directorial debut of Wally Pfister (Christopher Nolan’s longtime cinematographer); it’s a “present-day science fiction” thriller according to Pfister. After that, he’ll shoot Black Mass, playing Boston-gangster-turned-FBI-informant Whitey Bulger for director Barry Levinson. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Oblivion: Tom Cruise stars in the highly anticipated Oblivion, which opens exclusively in IMAX theaters on April 12 before expanding wide on April 19. New posters for the character-based science fiction movie have been released, and our favorite is the one that features Cruise with an iconic landmark in the background. Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko and Melissa Leo also star. [EW.com]

Oblivion

Kokowaah: Bradley Cooper wisely continues to stockpile projects in which he might star and make his directorial debut. The latest possibility is a remake of German film Kokowaah, a box office smash in its native land in 2011. The original revolves around the friendship of a fun-loving bachelor and a devoted family man, which changes when the paternity of the latter’s young daughter is called into question. [Deadline]

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 Trailer: The sequel to the unexpectedly delightful Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is heading to theaters in 3D on September 27, and the first pun-filled trailer has dropped. Bill Hader and Anna Farris again voice their characters from the original animated tale, who return to clean up a giant mess only to discover “something big that was left behind.” [Yahoo! Movies]
