James Gandolfini, who will forever be remembered as Tony Soprano on The Sopranos, has died at the age of 51. According to HBO, the cause of death is believed to be a heart attack. The actor was apparently on vacation in Italy at the time of his death. He is survived by his wife Deborah Lin and their 8-month-old daughter.
The New Jersey-born actor first garnered attention for enforcer/tough guy roles in True Romance, Get Shorty, and other films in the late 1990s before finally breaking out in 1999, using his imposing physicality and a grounded, tough, and layered style to fully inhabit Tony Soprano, a role that won him 3 Emmy awards.

Batman has a long and illustrious cartoon history with The Super Friends, Batman: The Animated Series, and Batman Beyond serving as a gateway drug to Gotham and the Dark Knight for generations. Since the turn of the century, though, we’ve seen less and less of the Caped Crusader on TV, with Warner Bros. and DC turning more toward direct-to-DVD animated films like Batman: Year One and the fantastic anthology film, Batman: Gotham Knight.
Now, DC Nation and Cartoon Network are picking up the baton last held by the light and fun Batman: The Brave and the Bold and handing it to Beware the Batman, and now we have a new trailer for the long awaited series.
In the above trailer (which is the first look at the show in more than a year), ...

With a summer blockbuster as big as Guillermo del Toro’s robots vs. monsters movie Pacific Rim, it’s understandable that Legendary Pictures would begin planning for a sequel, and had already commissioned a sequel script from Travis Beacham by December 2012. Based on this fact, and the fact that del Toro has been dropping hints about the sequel’s development for some time now, you’d expected Pacific Rim 2 to be a done deal already.
There are, of course, some film franchises that jump right into multi-sequel planning without waiting to see how the first film performs; Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy is an example of this, as is Disney’s ...
