'Godzilla' castmembers talk about their roles in the film (and Bryan Cranston touches on post-'Breaking Bad' plans)

The cast of Godzilla, currently in the middle of filming the monster movie, stopped by EW’s Comic-Con suite over the weekend to talk with Sara Vilkomerson about their roles in the 2014 film. Director Gareth Edwards, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston also talked about their the enthusiasm of the Comic-con fans, and Cranston revealed his post-Breaking Bad plans.

'Ender's Game' clip shows Harrison Ford preparing for war

Comic-Con 2013 has officially begun, and although Summit is still dealing with that whole Orson Scott Card boycott debacle, the studio is also shifting Ender’s Game‘s marketing campaign into high gear. A new viral clip recently hit the web that features Harrison Ford as Colonel Hyrum Graff delivering a message on behalf of the International Fleet. “Let the courage of Mazer Rackham be your inspiration,” he says.

In the universe of Ender’s Game, Rackham (Ben Kingsley) is revered as a legendary military commander (Mild spoilers ahead) who’s thought to be dead but becomes an important mentor in Ender’s training. Check out the clip below: READ FULL STORY

Best Animated Film nominee 'Rango' to be re-released in theaters for limited engagement

Missed Gore Verbinski’s dark and quirky Academy Award-nominated Rango when it was in theaters last March? No worries, partner. Paramount announced shortly after the wonderfully weird CGI Western was named a Best Animated Film nominee (it will square off against A Cat in Paris, Chico & Rita, Kung Fu Panda 2, and Puss in Boots) that it will be returning to theaters beginning this Friday, Jan. 27 for a limited week-long engagement. The throwback film — which features the voices of Johnny Depp (as the crime-fighting-chameleon-with-an-identity-crisis Rango), Isla Fisher, and Timothy Olyphant — has already pulled in over $245 million worldwide at the box office and won Best Animated Film at the Critics Choice Awards.

'Dark Shadows': New shot of Johnny Depp

If you wanted to get closer to Johnny Depp’s Barnabas Collins in our official first look at the cast of Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows last fall, here’s your chance. Warner Bros. has released this closeup of Depp (and his vampire nails). Is it just me, or does he look younger than he did in The Tourist?

Barnabas Collins is an 18th century gentleman who was transformed against his will into a vampire and buried in a tomb — until he’s uncovered by construction workers in the year 1972. As screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith told EW last year, he’s still a ladies man. “In some sense he can be a terrifying killer; on the other hand, women have a weakness for him and he has a weakness for women … He can be a very well-mannered, well-meaning vampire most of the time, until his stomach is empty or someone challenges his beloved Collins family.”

What do you think? Success?

EW's special tour of Disney's archives (see items from 'Pirates,' 'Lost,' 'Snow White') and studio backlot -- EXCLUSIVE

Kate-Passport_Lost

We can all recall fondly the episode of Lost in which Hurley clutched his winning lotto ticket in disbelief. Or when Johnny Depp first appeared as the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland, with his wildly ornate top hat. Or when the title heroine of Mary Poppins caused a pile of wooden blocks to come alive and stack themselves inside the toy chest. But what happens after these iconic props are finished playing their parts?

They end up settling in for a cozy retirement at the Walt Disney Archives, a treasure trove of paraphernalia for pop-culture fiends that ironically must remain closed to the public, lest these objects become irreparably damaged. But EW was granted exclusive access to the facility, along with a rare tour of the Walt Disney studio backlot in Burbank, Calif., joining members of Disney’s D23 Official Fan Club. After speaking with these hardcore Disney enthusiasts — who are the only members of the public granted access to the studio’s lot — I got to check out some instantly recognizable objects from Lost, Pirates of the Caribbean, Alice in Wonderland, Mary Poppins, and Enchanted. But by far the coolest moment was when the archivists unveiled some never-before-seen items from one of the crown jewels of the Disney canon, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which is about to celebrate its 75th anniversary.

Box office preview: 'Puss in Boots' will claw its way to the top

There are three movies opening in wide release this weekend, but all I really want to do is talk about the one with the cat: Puss in Boots.

Why? First, because cats are awesome, and second, because they have consistently been overlooked by a Hollywood system that favors Corgis (like the cute one on our cover), Chihuahuas, and a myriad of dogs that — according to a theory I don’t comprehend — are so ugly they’re adorable. But not anymore! Viva el gato! Oh, and here are my box-office predictions for the top five: READ FULL STORY

Johnny Depp gets his motor running in 'The Rum Diary' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

In his upcoming film, The Rum Diary, Johnny Depp gives up Jack Sparrow’s mascara and natty dreads to play a hard-living American newspaperman down and out in 1950s Puerto Rico. Based on an early, semi-autobiographical novel by Hunter S. Thompson, the film was a long-in-the-works labor of love for Depp, who became real-life merry-prankster pals with the Gonzo author when he initially portrayed him in 1998’s whacked-out Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. This time out, Depp gets into all sorts of trouble on the tropical island, in no small part trying to impress the easy-on-the-eyes Amber Heard. In fact, you can check the two costars out in this exclusive clip where Heard gets Depp’s engine revving. Watch below: READ FULL STORY

'On Stranger Tides' star Ian McShane talks swapping music with Johnny Depp and the (possible) return of 'Deadwood'

Over the phone from London, British actor Ian McShane is talking about his homeland’s perennial obsession: the weather. More specifically, he is explaining how he fell ill when the U.K.’s recent Indian summer was replaced by conditions of a more briskly autumnal nature. “I’ve been sick,” he says. “I’ve a chest infection, where you just want to go around coughing. Anyway, luckily, I have the week off.”

Johnny Depp's 'Lone Ranger' officially rides again, schedules May 31, 2013 release

Maybe there’ll be a little less silver in those bullets, but The Lone Ranger has cut costs enough for Disney to give the movie the green light. Disney announced today that the film is back on track, and the new release date is May 31, 2013. “Johnny Depp, Jerry Bruckheimer and Gore Verbinski are such a talented combination and we’re thrilled to get back to work with them on The Lone Ranger,” a Disney spokesperson said.

The update on the classic cowboy epic was set to star The Social Network’s Armie Hammer in the title role and Johnny Depp as Indian scout Tonto, but when the budget soared to $250-million-plus, and Universal/DreamWorks’ Cowboys & Aliens underperformed at the box office, studio heads cried “Whoa!” In mid-August, two months before shooting was set to begin, the film faced the possibility of being scrapped completely.

Johnny Depp issues apology after comparing photo shoot to being raped

Apparently, Captain Jack Sparrow REALLY doesn’t like having his picture taken.

In an interview for an upcoming issue of Vanity Fair, actor Johnny Depp reportedly compares a magazine photo shoot to being sexually assaulted. “You just feel like you’re being raped somehow,” Depp said. “Raped … It feels like a kind of weird — just weird man.”

Understandably, the quote — part of an excerpt released Tuesday by the magazine — ran afoul of many readers, prompting the Oscar-nominated actor to issue a statement apologizing for his remarks. “I am truly sorry for offending anyone in any way. I never meant to. It was a poor choice of words on my part in an effort to explain a feeling. I understand there is no comparison and I am very regretful. In an effort to correct my lack of judgment, please accept my heartfelt apology.”

Depp’s latest film, “The Rum Diary” opens Oct. 28.
