James Wan promises that we will see Arthur Curry transform into the hero we all know as Aquaman in the upcoming solo movie.
Jason Momoa may have already suited up as Arthur Curry, aka Aquaman in the unofficially-titled DC Extended Universe, but we're yet to see exactly where he comes from, and why he is the way he is. Fortunately, a solo flick that's just a few months away from release is going to reveal a lot of that, if reports are to be believed.
James Wan will serve as director on 'Aquaman'
Director James Wan - who you may know from his work on horror movies including 'Insidious' and 'The Conjuring' - has stepped in to helm 'Aquaman', and opened up during a media set visit about some of what we should expect when this film hits the big screen.

James Wan serves as director on upcoming DC Extended Universe movie 'Aquaman'.
One of the most exciting projects being worked on for the DC Extended Universe right now is the Jason Momoa-led movie 'Aquaman', which comes from director James Wan. Ever since the character made his big screen debut in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice', returning to fight alongside his fellow superheroes in 'Justice League', audiences have been intrigued by the prospect of seeing the Atlantean lead his own solo flick.
James Wan clearly has some big plans for 'Aquaman'
Momoa has certainly brought a compelling new aspect to the hero, turning him into much more of a badass than we've really ever seen on the pages of DC's comic books. Fitting right in within the DCEU, he may look rough around the edges, but he's not a hero afraid of having a laugh.

The film is slated for a release in summer 2018.
When it comes to the world of horror, it's undeniable that 'The Conjuring' and the universe that the original movie opened up is one of the most successful modern-day additions to the genre there has been. In an age where horror seems to be going through a brilliant reinvention, James Wan's world has really worked its way into the hearts of those who love the thrill of a good scary movie.
Gary Dauberman will serve as writer on 'The Nun'
Following the success of 'The Conjuring' came a sequel, as well as the spin-off 'Annabelle' and this year's origin story for the doll with 'Annabelle: Creation'. Two further spin-offs have now been confirmed in the form of 'The Crooked Man' and 'The Nun', based on evil entities that have featured in previous movies in the 'Conjuring' universe.

Instead of wrapping up a trilogy, writer-turned-director Leigh Whannell launches a new horror franchise with a movie that's scary even if it's not particularly original. Its trump card is a strong central performance from the wonderful Lin Shaye, who plays out a sort of origin story (although they could still go back further) for her memorable character from the first two movies.
She's Elise, a medium in touch with the spirits of the dead, and as this story starts she's closed down her practice for good. Then the bright teenager Quinn (Sophie Scott) shows up, desperate to speak to her recently deceased mother while she makes important decisions as high school comes to an end. But Quinn has inadvertently made contact with a much more malevolent spirit in her apartment building, and when her father (Dermot Mulroney) realises that her life is in danger, he convinces Elise to help. Meanwhile, Quinn's little brother Alex (Tate Berney) gets in touch with Spectral Sightings internet ghostbusters Tucker and Specs (Angus Sampson and Whannell), who are about to see their first real ghost.
The film looks terrific, from the everyday creep-outs in the creeky old houses and apartments to the much darker atmosphere of "the further", which Elise has to enter in order to rescue Quinn from "the man who can't breathe" (Michael Reid MacKay), a seriously gruesome spirit who isn't content just haunting the living: he wants them to join him. Shaye delivers a performance that's unusually complex for this genre, as Elise struggles to balance her past and present with a flood of emotions, a reluctant determination to help and a generous sense of prickly humour. Mulroney also adds some weight as a concerned single dad at the end of his tether. And Scott has a promising charisma in the opening scenes, less so when the plot reduces her to a scream queen.

The sins of London have followed them home. After throwing Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) out of a cargo plane, his brother, Ian Shaw (Jason Statham), is out for revenge.

This investigation will see the team dropping their cars out of planes and driving between buildings to prove that they are the Furious 7.

The franchise will continue and it will be in cinemas in April, 2015
Fast & Furious 7 is definitely still happening, and if Vin Diesel's Facebook account is to be believed, then it will be here by next spring. The star of the franchise took to his Facebook page late on Sunday, 22 December, night to leave a tribute for deceased star Paul Walker, before eventually revealing the release details for the upcoming film.
Walker and Diesel were set to star together once again
F&F7 will arrive in cinemas on 10, April, 2015, according to the Facebook post, after production was put on hold. Filming for the next instalment of the F&F series had been put on hold indefinitely following the untimely death of star Paul Walker on 30 November, however Universal decided to go ahead with the filming when writer Chris Morgan and director James Wan, apparently, devised a plot eventuality where they can retire Walker's character from the series using scenes already shot. The film was initially due to be released on 11 July, 2014.

So which movies made Tarantino's list for 2013?
Movie buffs have begun to anticipate Quentin Tarantino's Top 10 movies lists in recent years. The legendary director's run-down of his favorite movies of the year has made for interesting reading in recent years and is often regarded as the antithesis of the Academy's choices of the year's best.
He passed on devising a list last year, owing to Django Unchained, though in 2011 Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris - a wonderful movie that actually went onto win Best Original Screenplay at the Oscars - topped Quentin's list, edging out Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the excellent Moneyball, with Brad Pitt. Tarantino threw in a couple of curveballs with X-Men: First Class, The Skin I Live In, Attack The Block and Warrior.
