Filmmaking debuts don’t get much more fascinating, or promising, than the horror-tinged sci-fi tale Coherence, the first feature from writer-director James Ward Byrkit, which begins its theatrical run this Friday. The film stars Emily Foxler, Maury Sterling, Elizabeth Gracen, Alex Manugian, Lauren Maher, Hugo Armstrong, Lorene Scafaria, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer vet Nicholas Brendon as a group of friends who gather together for a meal the night a comet is passing overhead and discover there is an identical dinner party, featuring eight doppelgangers, happening down the street.

Casting Net: Jared Leto flirts with 'Brilliance'; Plus, Mamie Gummer may co-star with mom Meryl Streep, more
• Jared Leto, who won an Oscar for his work in Dallas Buyers Club, is in early talks to star in Brilliance for Legendary Pictures. According to Deadline, Leto met with director Julius Onah on Monday. Based on Marcus Sakey‘s novel, the film posits a world where a small number of the population are “brilliants,” which basically means they have extraordinary abilities. The film, adapted by David Koepp, focuses on a federal agent — also a brilliant — who must track down a fellow brilliant who wants to use his powers to start a war. Will Smith was previously attached to the role, but recently exited the project. [Deadline] READ FULL STORY
If there’s going to be a Father of the Bride 3, someone might want to tell Steve Martin — who played title character George in 1991′s Father of the Bride and 1995′s Father of the Bride Part II.
After rumors about a possible third film — which may or may not involve Matty, the titular bride’s younger brother, getting married to another man — began circulating yesterday, Martin quickly jumped on Twitter to respond to reports saying he was set to reprise his role. According to Martin, he hasn’t seen a script or even been offered a part in the film. READ FULL STORY

Forty years after it scared the pants off America — and territories beyond — Tobe Hooper’s ultimate scare machine The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is returning to the big screen this summer in freshly restored form. Hooper himself worked on the restoration and recently told Entertainment Weekly “the film works as well, if not better, than it originally did.” READ FULL STORY
David Koechner is best known for playing the Ron Burgundy-obsessed Champ Kind in the Anchorman movies. But the comic actor is becoming something of a horror genre regular, thanks to his appearances in Piranha 3DD, the not-exactly-a-horror-movie-but-still-plenty-horrific Cheap Thrills, the forthcoming Scouts vs. Zombies, and Crawlspace, which is now available to watch exclusively on Hulu Plus.
Here’s an interesting conundrum: This weekend we have two sequels opening wide — 22 Jump Street and How to Train Your Dragon 2. Both of the first films did well critically and at the box office, and both sequels are pretty much guaranteed a terrific debut and a healthy life thanks to the enormously positive reviews. They’re even tracking similarly, with analysts predicting openings in the $50 million to $60 million range.
But, in this box office horse race, there has to be a winner, even if in this case second place isn’t going to be bad. At all. We could be lame and call it a tie, but what would be the point of that?
Here’s how things might play out: READ FULL STORY
Wouldn’t it be great if Eminem provided the music to an action movie? The trailer for The Equalizer gives us a look into this beautiful, beautiful fantasy, featuring a preview of a new collaboration between the artist and Sia.
But the trailer for The Equalizer isn’t short on its own thrills.

The old fighting instincts spring back and Washington finds himself righting wrongs, fighting for the weak, and getting on the wrong side of some Russian gangsters. READ FULL STORY
