Water Cooler Prep: November 10

Making sure you don't look dumb or out of the loop in front of your co-workers and friends when you are chit-chatting in the break room.

The Disney animated flick benefited from a dearth of family fare at the theater to take out the kinda, not really controversial Interstellar. with $56.2 million. Robots are cool, but inflatable robots? Way cooler.

Not to be outdone with the mediocrity of the Bourne Legacy, Damon is looking to cash in on Hollywood's favorite amnesia-ridden assassin with the tentatively-titled Bourne Betrayal. Set to film in 2015 and released in 2016, the movie will see director Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon reunite once more to give us the most headache-inducing action scenes ever.

J.J. Abrams will quickly go to work on getting lens flare into as many shots as possible in the newly christened "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

Following his Oscar-winning turn as a transgender in Dallas Buyers Club, Leto is in talks to take on the Joker in the Suicide Squad movie announced earlier last month by Warner Bros. and DC Comics. Finally we'll get the answer to who was the better 90s teenage heartthrob: Heath Ledger or Jared Leto.

In more casting news, Tarantino's new western, The Hateful Eight has revealed it's eight titular anti-heros: Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh (Fast Times at Ridgemont High), Walton Goggins (TV's Justified), Demian Bichir (The Heat), Tim Roth (Pulp Fiction), Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern and Channing Tatum. Dayum, that is some good casting.

Because Toy Story apparently did not have the most perfect ending and because no one was asking for this sequel, we'll be seeing more of Woody and Buzz.

Scheduled for a 2016 release and directed by Moon's Duncan Jones, Warcraft has got an impressive cast including Paula Patton, Dominic Cooper, Ben Foster and Clancy Brown. Now the studio just has to make a compelling case as to why fans of the game should abandon their computers to see all of their favorite characters get ruined on the big screen.
