We scour the interwebs for the coolest movie news and more so you don't have to ...

If you really want to go deep with Viggo Mortensen —- really, really deep —- ask him the seemingly general question, "Who were your heroes growing up as a child, and who are they today?" The "Lord of the Rings" star names around 230 of them in an interview with Vulture.

Things get intense when Ryan Gosling and Nicolas Winding Refn work together. The Hollywood Reporter has the first look at a glaring Gosling in the "Drive" director's new thriller about a boxer-turned-gangster, "Only God Forgives."

This guy definitely has a thing for 19th-century heroes having swashbuckling adventures on Mars! io9 speaks with Michael Chabon about his unproduced screenplay, "The Martian Agent," and his work on rewriting the "John Carter" script.

Deadline reports that "Downton Abbey" helmer Brian Percival is set to direct "The Book Thief," the adaptation of Marcus Zusak's WWII novel that's been on the Children's Chapter Paperback New York Times bestseller list for a mere 228 weeks. Now who will play Liesel Meminger, the clever Book Thief herself?

"Top Gun 2" is happening, and the guy who wrote Ben Affleck's "The Town" has been tapped to write the script, according to Variety. Peter Craig apparently has more of a need for speed than "X-Men: First Class" scribes Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz, who were originally hired for the gig.

Yep, it's still ridiculously beautiful. Peter Jackson explores remote New Zealand in his latest video production diary from the set of "The Hobbit," which also features a look at second unit director Andy Serkis at work.
