An awesome new Web site has gone live for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, the new themed area of Universal Studios Orlando, which opens sometime this year.

Lionsgate has bought U.S. distribution rights to The Last Exorcism, a verite-style horror movie about a troubled evangelical minister who allows his final exorcism to be filmed by a documentary crew, Variety reported.

Warner Brothers has pushed its comic-based action movie The Losers to June 4 from its original April 9 release date to move it out of the way of Clash of the Titans, which comes out April 2 (to allow for the addition of 3-D effects).

The second season of Being Human will debut on BBC America in late summer, with the third season following shortly, the network announced; check out the preview below.


Lionsgate is launching a Superhero Contest in connection with the superhero satirical movie Kick-Ass; entrants can create their own heroes and compete for a chance to win a cameo in a comic sequel.
