Spoiler Alert: The much-discussed series finale of Breaking Bad showed chemistry-teacher-turned-meth-kingpin Walter White finally succumbing to the many forces that were trying to kill him and dying alone in a high-end meth lab.

Or did it?

Bryan Cranston as Walter White

In a recent interview with CNN, actor Bryan Cranston discussed the possibility that the man known to many only as "Heisenberg" may have lived to cook another day, having somehow survived a seemingly fatal bullet wound (and lung cancer). 

"Hey you never saw bags zip up or anything," said Cranston in a response to a question about whether or not Walt survived the finale.

Asked point-blank, "Is he dead?" Cranston replied, simply, "I don't know."

Then came the part that's really got fans tweaking: on the possibility of a movie featuring the talented Mr. White, Cranston said coyly, "Never say never."

The first Sin City film gave us Jessica Alba as the world's first stripper to wear pants on stage.

But while Alba only takes it off for Entertainment Weekly, Eva Green, her co-star in the Sin City sequel is already being told by the MPAA to put some darn clothes on and the movie hasn't even been released yet!

Eva Green: Sin City Poster

The MPAA is reportedly preventing Dimension Films from shipping the above poster of Green to movie theaters for display in their lobbies.

The reason? Well, in a word, boobs. In many words: "Nudity - curve of under breast, and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown."

Yes, that's the MPAA's official explanation. They're the ones holding meetings about dark nipple circles and we're made to seem like pervs for wanting to see that poster in theaters?! What a world!

Rumors about Star Wars: Episode VII will likely continue to circulate up until the film's December 2015 release date.

But while the cast of Episode VII has been announced, little else has been officially confirmed, leaving fans to scour the Internet for hints of what the movie might have in store.

Well, if you're one of those fans, prepare yourself for what may be the closest thing you'll see to actual Episode VII footage between now and when the first trailers are released:

If you've been keeping up with the Star Wars rumor mill, you know Daisy Ridley was probably cast as Han Solo and Princess Leia's daughter in Episode VII. (We knew for certain she'll appear in the film, but her role has yet to be verified.)

The video above is supposedly footage of Ridley receiving some serious lightsaber training on set.

Angelna Jolie's role in the forthcoming Disney film Maleficent is one of the most highly-anticipated of the actress' career.

Jolie spoke with Movie Fanatic recently and discussed the painstaking preparation she underwent for the title part, as well as the difficult decision to have her 5-year-old daughter Vivienne act in the film.

"I practiced a lot with my children with my voice," says Jolie. "When I got them laughing, I figured I was on to something. Well, they laughed, they cried."

"I think that was part of the thing with this role is you realize there's no halfway," the actress adds. "If you're gonna do it, you're gonna have to just fully get into it and enjoy it."

As for the decision to have little Vivienne play a younger version of Elle Fanning in the film, Angelina says she still has mixed feelings about the prospect of her daughter becoming an actress:

X Men: Days of Future Past just hit theaters last night, but the film is already enjoying mega-box-office and is expected to turn in opening-weekend totals that will dwarf the receipts of its predecessor, X Men: First Class.

X Men Days of Future Past Poster

The film pulled in over $8 million on Thursday night alone and Marvel Studios is said to have set a goal of $100 million for this weekend.

High hopes, indeed, but certainly within reach, as Memorial Day typically provides one of the biggest box office weekends of the year.

Despite the impressive one-day total, X Men: First Class has fallen shy of the Thursday night numbers reported by other recent big-budget releases such as The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Such huge numbers across the board have industry analysts predicting one of the most profitable summers that movie studios have seen in recent years.

Just last week, Godzilla's box office was reported at a staggering $93.2 million for its opening weekend alone.

For those who felt The Last Stand was a poor exit for many of these characters, X-Men: Days of Future Past should at least salve the wound in part. - James Berardinelli

The characters - and the performers playing them - step unto the breach to provide just enough wit and feeling to make "Days of Future Past" something other than a waste of a reasonable person's time. - A.O. Scott

Time travel, Peter Dinklage and 1970s kitsch top a very long list of what makes "X-Men: Days of Future Past" such a blast. - Betsy Sharkey

The 2010 animated film How to Train Your Dragon proved to be a surprise smash hit for DreamWorks, and now the studio is reportedly taking a bold and admirable risk with the movie's forthcoming sequel.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 is slated for release in June, and according to the film's writer and director it will feature a scene in which a beloved character subtly acknowledges that he's gay. 

Filmmaker Dean Deblois - who is openly gay himself - discussed the making of the sure-to-be-controversial scene and the decision to have Gobber the Belch (voiced by Craig Ferguson) reveal his sexual orientation.

In the scene, Gobber watches a husband and wife argue. "When we were recording Craig Ferguson, I had written the line, 'This is why I never got married,'" says Deblois. "[Ferguson], as he often does, added it as an ad lib and said, 'Yup, Gobber's coming out of the closet.'"

Robert Pattinson has officially crushed our hopes and dreams.

In Cannes to promote Maps to the Stars, the actor talked to Variety about his film career and shot down any talk of another Twilight Saga movie.

"I couldn't do another Twilight movie," the 28-year old told the publication. "I'm too old."

Too old?!? Robert, you play a vampire! They are supposed to be old! Sheesh.

Pattinson went on to say "no one thought [Twilight] would be a big deal," which of course meant everyone was gravely mistaken.

After an opening weekend that can only be described as monstrously successful, it comes as no surprise that Warner Brothers and Legendary Pictures are already planning a second installment in their rebooted Godzilla franchise.  

Godzilla's box office for its first weekend in theaters surpassed industry forecasts by nearly $20 million, with the film pulling in a cool $93 mill domestically.

Mostly positive reviews for Godzilla helped the film stomp competitors and pull in $9.3 million on Thursday night alone. Not too shabby for a film based on a character that first hit theaters in 1955.

All that has been confirmed by producers thus far is that sequel talks are definitely underway. No word yet on what Godzilla 2 may feature in terms of plot, and Gareth Edwards has yet to sign on for the sequel, though he is expected to return as director.
