Movie News Today - 6/14

It's quite possible that David Yates, director of the last few "Harry Potter" films, could be the guy for "The Hobbit." While I'm quite fond of Yates' work on "Potter," he (and the screenwriters he works with) have been quite liberal with their adaptations of the books. "The Hobbit" is one book that needs and should receive no serious cuts or rewrites. Not sure how I feel about this.

Ridley Scott dropped by an LA nerdfest this week and dropped some details about the upcoming "Alien" prequels.

Sam Raimi has been tapped to direct a "Wizard of Oz" prequel. Fine. The real question on my mind is, will he bring Robert Downey, Jr. with him?

NPR gives us a look at some of the winners at the Golden Trailer Awards.

With the World Cup in mind, here we have a look at the best 11 soccer movies of all time. Thankfully, "Victory" makes the list.

Christopher Nolan is just like you: he hates 3D. His campaign for best director in the world just got stronger.

Liam Neeson will only do a "Taken" sequel if it's believable. Movieline questions Neeson's judgement on "believable."
