The official announcement trailer for 'Blade Runner 2049' is finally here and while we still know little about the plot, we do get a glimpse of Ryan Gosling in his leading role as Officer K. We see him approaching the wreckage of what looks like a blimp and then an empty building in which he comes across a gun-wielding Harrison Ford who returns as Rick Deckard. The movie is based 30 years after events in the first movie, the LAPD's Officer K is the new blade runner in town, but his job gets a lot more complicated when he uncovers the truth behind the replicants' existence and sets out to find the long lost Deckard.

Seriously? These guys have never been named Sexiest Man Alive?
So Dwayne Johnson was named People's Sexiest Man Alive this year; a decision that has been the source of both praise and confusion. Praise because he's an excellent role model with enormous muscles and because he's mixed race, and confusion because all the obvious choices haven't been exhausted yet.
Here are ten more Hollywood heartthrobs who deserve to be named 'Sexiest Man Alive' sooner rather than later.
Leonardo Dicaprio at the 2016 Oscars
The actor’s ‘Hamlet’ commitments nearly cost him the superhero role.
Benedict Cumberbatch will make his superhero debut in next year in Marvel’s Doctor Strange. But it almost wasn’t to be for the ‘Sherlock’ actor, as his commitments to stage play Hamlet nearly cost him the role.
Benedict Cumberbatch filming Doctor Strange
Speaking to Empire magazine, the film’s director Scott Derrickson said that Cumberbatch was “the only actor we seriously considered” for the superhero role. But unfortunately, Cumberbatch had already signed on to play Hamlet at London’s Barbican in the autumn of 2015.
Leto is also due to co-produce the project, alongside 'The Social Network's Michael De Luca.
He’s already taken on the prestigious role of The Joker this year, but now Jared Leto is set to tackle the role of a real-life cultural icon, with the announcement that he’s to produce and star in a new biopic about Andy Warhol.
Leto, 44, has signed on to portray the legendary pop artist in a new biopic project simply titled Warhol. He will also co-produce the film alongside Michael De Luca, whose credits include The Social Network, Fifty Shades of Grey and Captain Phillips.
Terence Winter, best known for his writing work on hit TV shows ‘The Sopranos’ and ‘Boardwalk Empire’, is adapting the script for the project from Victor Bockris’ 1989 book ‘Warhol: The Biography’.

Leto’s turn as the green haired villain was highly anticipated by fans, but the film’s final cut left them wanting more.
Suicide Squad actor Jared Leto is just as disappointed as fans are about The Joker’s lack of screen time in the comic book movie. Despite being heavily featured in the film’s trailers, Leto’s Joker doesn’t appear much in the actual movie, with a lot of his scenes being left on the cutting room floor.
Jared Leto as Suicide Squad’s Joker
When asked by IGN if he was upset about any of his scenes getting cut, the actor responded: “Were there any that didn’t get cut? I’m asking you, were there any that didn’t get cut? There were so many scenes that got cut from the movie, I couldn’t even start.
After winning an Oscar for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club, Jared Leto waited three years before choosing another role.
And he decided to take on the iconic supervillain Joker in the DC Comics thriller Suicide Squad. It's a brash move, but Leto says he loved the film's originality. "You can anticipate a lot of chaos and a hell of a lot of fun," he says. "And I think it's something completely different than other movies in the genre."
An actor who also fronts a rock band (30 Seconds to Mars), Leto says he doesn't have a master plan, even after winning an Academy Award. "My career has had a nice slow burn," he says. "I never woke up one day and all of a sudden my life changed. And I'm grateful for that, because I think it has allowed me the time and space to adjust accordingly, to find out where and how I'm comfortable doing things. A little bit has been fate. Some of it's been design. Fame has never been a target for me."

In a bizarre Instagram post, the actress said Leto based his whole career on ‘The Crow’.
Lindsay Lohan took aim at Jared Leto on Instagram earlier this week, by posting then deleting a collage of the actors who have played The Joker alongside Brandon Lee, and accusing the Suicide Squad star of basing his whole career on The Crow.
Lindsay Lohan thinks Jared Leto based his whole career on Brandon Lee’sThe Crow.
The collage featured Leto as The Joker in Suicide Squad, Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight and Jack Nicholson in 1989’s Batman, as well as the late Brandon Lee in The Crow. According to Perez Hilton, the actress captioned the post: “Who wore it better? Who based his whole music and film career on the film, The Crow?”
This is one scary movie we're definitely looking forward to.
A re-boot for one of the scariest Stephen King films ever released, 'It', is finally coming next year with Andrés Muscietti named as director. However, there's no-one yet attached to the lead villain role of evil shape-shifting clown Pennywise. So who do you think should play him?
Will Poulter from 'The Revenant' was originally in talks for the part, but news has emerged that he has backed out. There's no word yet on whether or not Tim Curry will reprise the role, though it's definitely unlikely as much as we'd love to see him back. Let's look at the specs: Pennywise has his insane laugh, wide smile, gruff voice and is largely humorous. So who could rock those traits the best?
Jim Carrey has clowned around plenty of times before

Just what is this villainous team all about?
Too often are we made to see the world through the eyes of a superhero. Too often are we presented with a black and white view of good and evil. 'Suicide Squad' brings you the ultimate nemesis team, promised freedom in return for saving the world. Can they do it? Or is destruction just their nature?
Jared Leto is the latest incarnation of The Joker
The gates of Arkham Asylum have opened, and the horror within unleashed. They've been enlisted on a top secret black ops mission that only they can perform. The future depends now on the so-called villains and not the heroes. Ahead of the August premiere, we delve into the membership of the Suicide Squad:

The two actors sneakily attended Comic-Con in New York this weekend and fans were non the wiser.
