Last summer fans of Texas football, and more specifically, the series "Friday Night Lights," got some hope that there was more to come. Peter Berg revealed that he wanted to get a feature film off the ground centered on Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton picking up where the final episode of the show left off and that work was happening to start getting it rolling. And then, where was pretty much radio silence on it, but it seems it's becoming more of a reality.

Damn, Sharlto Copley isn't wasting any time filling up his calendar. Currently off shooting the thriller "Open Grave" and set to team up with Spike Lee this fall for the "Oldboy" remake, it looks like he's going to sandwich a good old-fashioned blockbuster in right between the two.

If there's one guy around Hollywood who has been aching to do a musical or that people have been aching to see in a musical, it's Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Of course, there was the musical sequence in "(500) Days Of Summer" but it was his "Make 'Em Laugh" intro on "Saturday Night Live" a few years back that woke everyone up to the potential he had as a charismatic leading man in a song-and-dance flick. We're a bit surprised it hasn't happened sooner, but it looks like his day is finally coming.

It's been a bounty of news for Robert Pattinson fans over the last 24 hours or so. Late last night the actor signed on Iraq war flick "Mission: Blacklist" and today has seen a plethora of "Cosmopolis" clips land online giving an even greater taste of what he has coming up in his collaboration with David Cronenberg. But he's not done yet.

With the 2012 release date schedule pretty much nailed in, give or take a few films, our eyes start to wander to the horizon. Some of this was discussed in one of our recent features where we asked; are any of these dozen or so films going to arrive in 2012?

For all the many strengths of "The Avengers," there's one that writer-director Joss Whedon can't take credit for: the casting. Of the main characters, only one, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/The Hulk, hasn't appeared in one of the previous five Marvel movies that have led to this point. So given the casting committee that assembled The Avengers, it's something of a miracle that it's ended up with one of the most enjoyable collection of actors in a big tentpole movie for quite some time.

Looks like "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" director Timur Bekmambetov is going from fake history to real history, lining up the decidedly non-action-y "The Current War."

Few figures in comic book lore command the attention and devotion of Stan Lee. Now in his late eighties, with a grey-white caterpillar of a moustache perpetually perched atop his upper lip and oversized, dark-tinted glasses, he’s an easily identifiable character, as iconic as one of his pop culture creations (Fantastic Four, Spider-Man and the X-Men, to name a few), and just as important. But many don’t know the story behind the man. “With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story,” a zippy and somewhat superficial documentary, attempts to fill in some of that backstory, and the result is as compulsively entertaining and colorful as any Marvel comic book. Excelsior!
