Jose Padilha's film stars Joel Kinnaman as the title hero plus Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Jay Baruchel, Michael Keaton, Michael Kenneth Williams, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Abbie Cornish, Aimee Garcia, and Jackie Earle Haley.

Yesterday it was revealed that the fourth season of "American Horror Story" would be a period piece. Today we learned a little bit more as Entertainment Weekly caught up with creator Ryan Murphy to do a little digging. Read on for the scoop!
“It’s set in 1950,” Murphy reveals exclusively to EW. “If you look historically what happened in the year 1950, there’s some more clues in that year. It’s a period piece. We try and do the opposite of what we’ve done before.”
Okay, so who wants to start speculating first? Give us your thoughts in the comments section below.
Below you'll find the original PR for the fourth season order.
From the Press Release:
FX has ordered a fourth installment of "American Horror Story," the Emmy and Golden Globe Award winning miniseries franchise from Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, it was announced by John Landgraf, CEO, FX Networks and FX Productions. The network has ordered 13 episodes from Twentieth Century Fox Television.
“Put simply, Ryan Murphy is a master television producer,” said Landgraf. “Time and time again he reinvents the form. What he, co-creator Brad Falchuk, and their producers Dante Di Loreto, Tim Minear, Jennifer Salt, James Wong, Brad Buecker, Jessica Sharzer, Douglas Petrie, Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, Alexis Martin Woodall, and the entire production team and cast responsible for the 'American Horror Story' franchise have done is nothing short of extraordinary. Every year, they create a riveting and brilliant new miniseries. 'AHS: Coven' is the best yet, and I have no doubt that the next installment will be even better.”
Since its inception, the "American Horror Story" miniseries franchise has combined for a total of 34 Emmy Award nominations. "AHS: Murder House" tied for the most nominations of any program in 2011 with 17, and "AHS: Asylum" received the most nominations of any program in 2012, also with 17.

Entertainment Tonight Canada caught up with actor Bryan Cranston regarding his role in the upcoming blockbuster, Godzilla, and through the wondrous power of YouTube and an eagle-eyed viewer we have the entire segment right here for you.
ET Correspondent Sangita Patel stormed the set of Godzilla to sit down with the cast and chat about bringing one of movie's most feared monsters back to life. Fresh off his Golden Globe and Emmy-winning time on "Breaking Bad", Bryan Cranston tells ET why he was more than happy to be a part of the reboot. "As a kid, Godzilla was you know, my creature of choice. I love the absolute destructive nature of this beast."
Spilling secrets about the elusive film, Cranston likens the material to another film that also cast a monster from the deep as its lead antagonist. "They're taking a very restrained approach to this, much like 'Jaws' did. Steven Spielberg didn't always show the beast." But never fear, the actor says, the film will still terrorize: "The essence is present and it's there, and it's moving and it's creepy. So the tension will mount for sure."
"I think he's just one of the greatest actors I think I've worked with in a long time," co-star Aaron Taylor-Johnson says of his dream co-star Bryan Cranston. Meanwhile, actress Sally Hawkins shares her thoughts on why Godzilla might just be misunderstood. "He doesn't know how to express himself except… [by] eating people," the Golden Globe nominated actress tells ET, adding, "he just needs a candle and a massage."
Monsters' Gareth Edwards directs the all-star cast including Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Johnson, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe, Richard T. Jones, Sally Hawkins, Akira Takarada, Victor Rasuk, Yuki Morita, and C.J. Adams.
In theaters May 16, 2014, an epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.
Making his first appearance in 1954 (Gojira). Godzilla is a giant monster that lives in the sea that comes from the ocean to feed on mankind.
