News Bites: Johnny Depp's 'Transcendence' Smile; 'Barbershop 3' Coming; 'Community' Movie Buzz


Transcendence: Johnny Depp offers up a rare smile in the otherwise dramatic and suspenseful Transcendence, out in theaters on April 18. Several dozen new images from the movie have been released; these two are our favorites. [Warner Bros. via Collider]



Barbershop 3: Ice Cube will star in Barbershop 3, reprising his role as the owner of a beloved neighborhood barbershop in Chicago. The first film was a big success back in 2002, inspiring a sequel as well as Beauty Shop, a spin-off starring Queen Latifah. The idea is for the new movie to serve as catalyst for a continuing series. [Deadline]


Community: A decision has not yet been made, but it's looking more and more likely that NBC TV's Community will get a sixth season of its refreshing, funny and offbeat hijinks. If that happens, the community college gang could well get a movie, and no less than Justin Lin (Fast & Furious) has been considered to helm the project; Lin has already directed several episodes of the show. The prospect of "six seasons and a movie" was joked about way back in the second season of the show. [TV Guide].


Words and Pictures Trailer: Clive Owen (as an English teacher) and Juliette Binoche (as an art teacher) give sterling performances in the comedy-drama Words and Pictures. They're both prickly characters who are dealing with personal issues as they try to recapture the professional triumphs of their younger years. A new trailer establishes the premise nicely; the movie opens on May 23. [Voltage Pictures]
