Nothing fancy out in theatres this weekend unless you’re into the whole Ice Age series. Perhaps it will be a good weekend to just catch up on the films that you’ve missed out on previously. It’s also Comic-Con weekend, so those that are lucky enough to take part in the event can go geek out over in San Diego instead. Anyway let’s kick off this edition of the ELO with Mila Kunis who is starring in the hit comedy Ted. She’s also appearing at this year’s Comic-Con so be on the lookout!
After the jump, a sneak peek at upcoming films like Pacific Rim, Elysium, Oz: The Great and the Powerful and The Hobbit, a few more tidbits on The Dark Knight Rises, fanboys vs. fangirls, Aaron Sorkin teaches you how to make movies and finally Gary Oldman channels his inner R. Kelly.
