If you haven't allowed yourself to get excited about "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" yet but you're still a sucker for ass-kicking robots, some new character posters should be enough to put you over the fence.

The Weinsteins Might Kill "The Crow"
The upcoming Bradley Cooper-starring remake of "The Crow" might be dead in the water before production even begins.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the "Back To The Future" director is in negotiations to helm the drama "Flight," with Denzel Washington loosely attached to star.
"Dr. Horrible" Might Sing Again

And by the way, by the time we finish it, Neil [Patrick Harris] will be just as old," Whedon joked before adding, "No, I’m not saying anything."
