While it may seem that the geek set is kinda cool on "The Amazing Spider-Man," let's just keep a couple of things in mind. First, Sony opened "Men In Black III" to over $200 million worldwide this weekend, with the movie topping the box office in 104 countries. And based on that, don't discount the studio's ability to nab the younger crowd -- who they are clearly going for -- and pile 'em into theaters on the long Fourth of July weekend. 'Spider-Man' is hardly down for the count, and his newest Aussie trailer shows it has a few more tricks up its sleeve.

While the Cannes Film Festival may be the place where the finest auteurs from around the world come to unveil their latest offerings, the other side of the fest is the robust market where distributors and producers hawk their wares to buyers, hoping to sell foreign rights for their pictures. In order to help get contracts drawn up and cheques signed, clips or entire movies may be shown, but if those things aren't ready, sometimes a still photo will have to suffice.

Duh: Robert Pattinson Says He's Not Going To Be In 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire'

While he hasn't yet overwhelmingly won over his critics (reviews for "Cosmopolis" were mostly pleasantly surprised about his performance without raving about it), you have to give it up to Robert Pattinson for marking smart, bold choices. The actor's mostly been tied up on the "Twilight" movies for the past few years, but now he's admirably taking some risky and diverse roles, including costume drama "Bel Ami" from theater veteran Declan Donnellan, a thriller about the hunt for Saddam Hussein entitled "Mission: Blacklist," another picture with Cronenberg, or a team-up with Guy Pearce on "The Rover," from "Animal Kingdom" director David Michod.

Even though it's not coming out until Christmas, and is still shooting, The Weinstein Company are getting the ball rolling very early on Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained." And it's easy to see why. While the director may be a name brand at this point, his latest, a slavery-centered spaghetti western, could be his most controversial yet. However, with early footage screened at the Cannes Film Festival that delivered everything fans now expect from the director, and with rumors of a teaser trailer unspooling in front of "Prometheus," buzz is building for the film and it looks like the audiences will soon get a taste of what Tarantino is brewing.

You hear that sound in the distance? That sinister rumbling that quickens the pulse and raises goosebumps? It's the Warner Bros. marketing department beginning to leg out the final stretch for the campaign for "The Dark Knight Rises," and after two TV spots last week, a third has now arrived, giving a glimpse of even more footage from the film. And that's not all -- the carefully planned/embargoed set visits and interviews from various outlets also landed online over the weekend with more bits and bobs spilling out.

Of all the summer blockbusters on the way in the coming months, "The Bourne Legacy" is the one that's been keeping its cards closest to its chest. Even against the relatively secretive likes of "The Dark Knight Rises," Tony Gilroy's film, the fourth in the 'Bourne' franchise and the first without original star Matt Damon, has only unveiled a handful of stills and one stylish, '70s-style TV trailer, with only the barest minimum of details about the film revealed so far (many of them in our own chat with Gilroy).

Recap: Neil Marshall Finally Brings The Battle To 'Game Of Thrones' In 'Blackwater,' The Best Episode To Date

Given that, while it's on the expensive side as far as TV goes, "Game of Thrones" is still operating on a television budget, and as such, it's become a running joke the extent to which the show doesn't show its battles. We get a few brawls, well-choreographed and shot, and full of gore, but while there have been big battles on the show, we usually get the build up, or the aftermath, or sometimes both. It's understandable, of course, but given that the second season has revolved around a giant multi-front war, it can be a little frustrating.

Sure, I know we all wish that Ron Howard was making “The Dark Tower” right now, but hopefully he’ll still be able to get around to that sooner or later. Instead he’s making “Rush” – a biopic that’s starting to look very box-office friendly after the relative success of last year’s Formula One doc “Senna,” and the continual rise of one of its stars, Chris Hemsworth. Hemsworth will play James Hunt, whose rivalry with Daniel Bruhl’s Niki Lauda will be the driving force (badumtish) of Howard’s film.

"It's like 'Waterworld' in there," Hannah notes before she, Marnie and Jessa enter what may possibly be the best party ever in Bushwick. Taking place inside a giant warehouse, it's very much a TV Show Party -- you'd never see anything like this in real life -- the kind of thing that has a band playing, DJs, a room full of lesbians dancing and crusty punks all hanging out together. But despite the trappings which threaten to pull this episode of "Girls" into the wacky territory it has gone into here and there throughout the otherwise stellar first season, Lena Dunham and her co-horts keep things on an even keel.
