The Captain America sequel hits theaters on April 4 of next year. It returns Chris Evans as the Patriotic title character and will also feature Sebastian Stan, Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Toby Jones, and Samuel L. Jackson.

Simply put, Casablanca is the greatest movie in cinematic history.

So state the good folks at Movie Fanatic, who have spent weeks counting down the top 100 films of all-time.

The rankings finally concluded today with a final three of Vertigo, Taxi Driver and the Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman classic that "continues to compel every new generation that comes along," according to the site. Why?

"Because it is equal parts timeless romance and war drama, whose themes could not be more universal, regardless of the era."

That's lofty praise. Do you agree with the ranking? Is Casablanca the best movie ever?

Hansel and Gretel did more than take out witches at the box office this weekend; the updated, violent take on a classic fairy tale also took out the competition.

Overcoming mixed reviews (and a weak field), this Jeremy Renner-led drama took in $19 million Friday and Saturday, easily topping second-place Mama for the top spot.

Movie 43, meanwhile, proved that it takes more than a handful of big names to earn a big draw. Sometimes, it takes a good script and jokes that are not horrid.

Here is a look at the top five box office grossers:

Divergent has possibly landed an Academy Award winner.

According to the Summit Entertainment Twitter account, Kate Winslet will come on board the highly anticipated film in an unannounced role.

Divergent is set in a futuristic dystopia and based on a novel by the same name.

It follows Shailene Woodley's character, who hopes to break free from her homogeneous society that divides people based on human traits. She ends up leaving her faction, joining a rival group and falling for a young man named Four.

Casting for Four is underway.

The force will soon be with J.J. Abrams.

Despite claiming in November that he would not get behind the camera for Star Wars Episode VII, the beloved director has reportedly had a change of heart.

The Wrap now confirms that Abrams is on board.

The wildly anticipated film won't come out until 2015, with nothing known regarding the plot or the cast at the moment.

But Abrams was hailed for his reboot of Star Trek two years ago and admitted late last year that the special effect in Star Wars "blew [his] mind" upon initial viewing. He's a big fan.

Is he the right man for the all-important job?

In the never-ending online Fifty Shades of Grey movie casting game, Matt Bomer, Ian Somerhalder, and Channing Tatum tend to dominate the guys.

Likewise, big names like Emma Watson, Nina Dobrev, Krysten Ritter and Lucy Hale are often whispered about as likely potentials for the female lead.

A new name has emerged recently, however, and she's generating a lot of buzz in spite (or because) of the fact that she's less famous: Analeigh Tipton.

The America’s Next Top Model alum and Crazy Stupid Love star can be seen in the upcoming Warm Bodies, and said she'd be open to the sexy role.

Lindsay Lohan can't catch a break these days.

Last week, her new movie The Canyons was rejected by the Sundance Film Festival, and now South By Southwest (SXSW) has reportedly followed suit.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "quality issues" was the hilarious reason cited, with one source labeling the Bret Easton Ellis film "a monstrosity."

Hottest Mess

Good or bad, the recent New York Times feature entitled "Here Is What Happens When You Cast Lindsay Lohan in Your Movie" did little to help the film.

The paper describes the "chaos" surrounding the often-drunk Lindsay Lohan, from $46,000 hotel bills to erratic behavior and days-long disappearances.
