    Alejandro González Iñárritu Swings Off 'The Jungle Book,' Joe Johnston & More Line Up New Gigs

As a concept artist and effects technician, Johnston worked on the original "Star Wars" trilogy and later parlayed those skills into an Oscar for Best Visual Effects for "Raiders Of The Lost Ark" directed by Steven Spielberg and produced by Lucas.

    New Look At Red Skull In 'Captain America: The First Avenger'

    While we've made it pretty clear that "X-Men: First Class" is the best looking comic book film of the summer, we'll definitely give "Captain America: The First Avenger" a firm second place (sorry "Green Lantern" and "Thor," you both look too dorky to place).
