Ever since the first trailer for Lucy hit the Internet back in April, we've been eagerly awaiting the Luc Besson-helmed sci-fi/action flick.

After all, it features Scarlett Johansson as a super human drug mule. How can it not be awesome?

Lucy finally hits theaters today, and we're happy to report that reviews have been mostly positive, though some critics apparently found the premise and over-the-top shoot-'em-up scenes to be too ridiculous to take seriously. 

Here's what the taste-makers are saying:

"An outlandishly entertaining mixture of high silliness and high style." - David Edelstein

"A sci-fi yarn that ponders the meaning of time and the importance of evolution while occasionally throwing in some shootouts." - James Berardinelli

And the way Affleck looks, you'd think all that Batman casting bashing had really gotten to him:

Courtney Love may have been implicated in Kurt Cobain's death by none other than her own father, but she's never been charged with anything, and she was still his wife at the time of his death, which means Courtney controls (and profits from) Cobain's estate and the use of his likeness.

Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love

Sadly, it also means that when the inevitable Kurt Cobain biographical film gets made (you knew it was coming), Courtney will not only cash in big time, she'll also play a part in the creative process.

In fact, the film is currently in the very early stages of pre-production and Courtney is already exerting her will on producers.

By her own admission, Courtney has shoehorned her way into the casting process, which allows her to peruse an endless selection of "blonde, gorgeous 25-year-olds." No, really. She said that:

The release date for Star Wars: Episode VII is still almost 18 months away, but already, rumors about the plot and production seem to emerge every day.

We already know the cast of Episode VII and obsessive fans have already pieced together information about what roles each actor might be playing.

Adam Driver
Adam Driver was one of the first to be cast in the long-awaited Star Wars sequel. He's best known for his role on HBO's Girls.

Recently, photos from the set revealed that the Millennium Falcon will make an appearance, among other details, but today we might have received our biggest bonanza of leaked information to date.

A blogger named Devin Faraci claims to have uncovered a treasure trove of plot secrets (from an unnamed source, of course), and if his information is accurate we may now have a pretty good sense of how the film will begin and the sort of themes it will tackle (possible spoilers ahead):

When it first hit theaters in 2012, The Avengers set box office records that might never be broken. But if any movie can reach a billion dollars even faster than the first film, it's the highly-anticipated sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Today, Entertainment Weekly gave us our first look at the guaranteed-blockbuster, and the squeals of fanboy glee can be heard across the land.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Photo!

Not only does the cover promise "Marvel's biggest movie ever," but the photo marks the official debut of the film's villain, Ultron, who will be portrayed by James Spader

Yeah, Spader isn't the first actor that springs to mind when we look at that hulking mass of adamantium, but we trust that director Joss Whedon and company know what they're doing.

In addition to the returning motley crew of superheroes, Avengers: Age of Ultron features Elizabeth Olsen, who reportedly be playing Scarlet Witch.

It's the action that takes place around the 1:20 mark that's creating in an uproar.

In the scene, a highly-evolved simian outsmarts two humans and proceeds to blow them away with their own shotgun.

While the clip has been available online for weeks, the World Cup is the European equivalent of the Super Bowl in terms of ratings and ad revenues and its the fact that the extended trailer aired during a family-friendly TV event that has many Brits crying foul:
