The rumor of Selena Gomez portraying Charlotte York in a Sex and the City prequel evoked many responses earlier this month. So let's see what readers think of this intriguing follow-up story:

Sources say that Selena is still in the running for that character, while leading contenders have also emerged for the other key roles:

  • Elizabeth Olsen as Carrie Bradshaw.
  • Emma Roberts as Miranda Hobbs.
  • Blake Lively as Samantha Jones. 
  • Green Lantern Star
  • Photo of Selena
  • Elizabeth Olsen Picture

No deals are in place with any of these actresses, or even for the movie itself.

But Candace Bushnell has penned two novels about Carrie's early life - The Carrie Diaries and Summer And The City - and it seems unlikely a studio would pass on the possibility to create a new franchise based off a best-selling author.

What do you think of these casting choices?

The Office's Jenna Fischer is no stranger to being in front of the camera, but headlining a major motion picture, as she does in A Little Help - in one of her first dramatic roles, no less - was an adjustment for the actress.

The role of a train-wrecked wife and mother was markedly different from Pam Beesly, and did come naturally, Jenna tells our partner site, Movie Fanatic.

"This character was the biggest departure from my actual personality than anyone I’ve ever played before, so that was a challenge," Fischer explains.

Captain America is more than just the First Avenger. He was also first at the box office this weekend.

Chris Evans and company earned $65.8 million on Friday and Saturday, challenging Thor as the highest-grossing superhero opening of the summer. Our friends at Movie Fanatic gave the action flick four strong stars.

Harry Potter's final adventure dropped by a staggering 72 percent in its second weekend, but it would have been impossible to have come close to its record-breaking first few days of release. Let's take a look at the top five, shall we?

  1. Captain America: The First Avenger - $65.8 million
  2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - $48.1 million
  3. Friends with Benefits - $18.5 million
  4. Transformers: Dark of the Moon - $12 million
  5. Horrible Bosses - $11.7 million

THG at CCKristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are moving on. Not from each other. But from The Twilight Saga.

Pattinson will star in Bel Ami later this year, the first trailer for which was released this week.

Stewart, meanwhile, will update a classic fairy tale in Show White and the Huntsman, a possible trilogy that brought the cast together for a panel at Comic-Con this weekend.

How would the actress describe her version of this well-known character?

"She's got this amazing ability to channel fear, things that people are typically very afraid of, into this really focused, really charged, driving energy," Stewart said. "She's also like the people's leader and... truly doesn't let her heart cloud her mind. [She] doesn't let her mind get in the way of doing things she feels strongly about. Also, I get to have a sword and stuff."

Star Wars: The Complete Saga will soon be coming to Blu-Ray. Contained in the six-film set will be deleted scenes that should get the fan base salivating.

While George Lucas' empire has generated untold sums of cash, all the spinoff books, video games and even the prequel trilogy just can't measure up.

Deleted scenes from the original movies (Episodes IV, V and VI) will be included in the much-anticipated set. Here's a brief montage of some of them ...

THG at CCThree Comic-Con "character cards" from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 have been unveiled in advance of the cast's appearance at the San Diego event, which kicks off today.

Bella (Kristen Stewart), Jacob (Taylor Lautner) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) are each featured on two-sided cards with mini-bios.

The biographical information for Bella contains the heroine's full, married name (Isabella Marie Swan Cullen)  for the first time, and officially unveils her long-sought status her part of the “Cullen Coven.”

Her date of transformation? Still TBD.

The card also contains a quote: “Yeah, I’m ready.” Enough. Said.

Bella Swan Character Card

For Bella's special abilities, it says, "Her mind is impenetrable; no one can read her thoughts unless she allows it." Psychic attacks? Useless. Don't even front.

On Edward's card, little is new but his own sappy quote: “I’ve been waiting a century to marry you, Miss Swan.” That's a long ass time. As for Jacob Black?

His group listing actually contains two names: the Quileute Wolf Pack (a.k.a. Sam’s group) and then The Black Pack, his own new pack, headed by himself.

Appropriately, Jacob's defiant quote is: “I am the grandson of a chief. I wasn’t born to follow you or anyone else.” Not the lone wolf you wanna mess with.

Check out the front and back of each card after the jump!

THG at CCTHG is at Comic-Con. Unfortunately, Peter Jackson won't be joining us.

The director made it official today: neither he nor either of his upcoming Hobbit films will appear at the annual event in San Diego. It's a bummer.

"Bad news is that we won't be doing any Hobbit presentation at Comic Con in San Diego this year," Jackson wrote on Facebook. "New Line and Warner Bros. were very happy to support a presentation, but I declined, simply because I felt it was too early. There's so much more of the films still to shoot..."

And with that, he did at least offer the following behind-the-scenes production video from the shoot. Enjoy it now:
