1. Justin Bieber has another movie on the way
If 2011's 3D concert movie Justin Bieber: Never Say Never somehow failed to satisfy your appetite for the Biebs on the big screen, you're in luck: The pint-sized pop star recently tweeted that he has another movie coming out this year. Bieber failed to elaborate on what exactly his next cinematic role would entail, but a second concert movie based on his current Believe Tour is probably the most likely option — though there's always the remote chance that he could tell the sad tale of the pet monkey he ditched in Germany.

2. Robert Downey Jr. is (still) Iron Man
Rest easy, comic book fans: You have at least two movies before you should begin worrying about Robert Downey Jr. hanging up the Iron Man suit. After protracted contract negotiations, Marvel has signed Robert Downey Jr. to reprise his role in both The Avengers 2 and The Avengers 3. Though the terms of the deal weren't made public, it's safe to assume that all parties involved decided that they really, really like making money. [Entertainment Weekly]

3. The Kimye baby's name doesn't start with a "K" after all
Hope you weren't too attached to the name Kaidence Donda West, which earlier this week was alleged to be the name of the so-called Kimye baby. According to Us Weekly, a source close to West and Kardashian has confirmed that the baby's name doesn't begin with a "K." "They're not quite ready to announce the name yet," added the source, which means we can look forward to even more breathless, baseless speculation. And with 25 letters left as possibilities, you should probably get started now. [Us Weekly]

4. That Poltergeist remake no one really wants is on the way
Are you interested in seeing a remake of 1982's Poltergeist? Not really? Well, it'll be heeeeeere soon enough anyway. As Hollywood continues its mad quest to remake everything vaguely remembered by Gen-Xers, MGM and Fox have partnered for what they're calling a "revisionist take on the classic horror film" — so the ghost will probably come out of an iPad instead of a TV, or whatever.

5. You can watch most of this summer's blockbusters on FX in 2015
Don't feel like going to the movies this weekend? No problem: You can watch Man of Steel and more from the comfort of your very own home — if you're willing to wait a couple years. FX has announced that they've acquired the rights to premiere several of this summer's hottest blockbusters in mid- to late 2015, including Man of Steel, Fast & Furious 6, and Star Trek Into Darkness. So if you're fine with censored, edited versions of movies that are interrupted by commercials every 20 minutes or so— and who wouldn't be? — you can mark your calendars now.
