This past week CBM brought you exclusive coverage from the John Carter press junket where we asked Taylor Kitsch and Lynn Collins all the hard-hitting questions others were scared to ask! It was a slow news week for The Dark Knight Rises, but that's understandable given Christopher Nolan's secretive nature, a fact that composer Hans Zimmer spoke out on below. The big story for The Avengers was the back-biting compliment that the movie is Marvel Studios' best outing yet but not "cinematic enough", whatever that means. Luckily, it's just a rumor as it's one of those "Mysterious sources say" type leaks. As far as the new Spider-Man movie goes, the first clip debuted to mixed reviews. You can check out all these stories and much more below.
