One of the biggest compliments one could give to the Apatow-era of comedy is the development of talent, often very young and unheralded, from all around the world. Take, for instance, the international ensemble for "Bridesmaids" which featured Americans (Melissa McCarthy, Ellie Kemper), Brits (Matt Lucas, Chris O'Dowd) and Australians (Rose Byrne, Rebel Wilson) side-by-side.

Most people thought "The Avengers" would make money. The five official Marvel movies to date, from 2008's "Iron Man" to last year's "Captain America" had, after all, made over $2.2 billion worldwide. But most figured that, given that the film followed on to four franchises simultaneously, that there would be a cap on it: surely if "Iron Man 2" made $600 million worldwide, that was the ceiling for the film's grosses? But thanks to sterling reviews, phenomenal word of mouth, and a strong marketing campaign, the film has already made that sum in less than two weeks of international release, topping it off with a record-breaking U.S. opening weekend of $200 million, $50 million ahead of estimates, and $30 million more than the previous record holder, last year's "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2"

While recent clips for the upcoming sequel “Men In Black III” continue to lead us to believe it was nothing but a giant payday for all involved, actor Tommy Lee Jones is always reliable, even with the treacle-filled trailer for his co-starring role with Meryl Streep in “Hope Springs” showing he’s willing to step outside his comfort zone so late in his career to bring some laughs.

Unless you were living in the alternate dimension created by the Tesseract cube this weekend, you probably know that the jolly green Hulk and his fellow “The Avengers” swept any box office competition away with a record-breaking $200.3 million opening weekend. While the public is certainly lapping up director Joss Whedon’s superhero opus, they’re also eager to see what’s next from Marvel Studios. Many are wondering if we'll be seeing more heroes making their way to the screen, with a number of potential candidates in the mix. Well, one potential frontrunner has re-entered the rumor mill thanks to a tweet from “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World” helmer Edgar Wright on Saturday.

While the Swedish 'Dragon Tattoo' films didn't grip us as much as David Fincher's version, the overall success of the films (and, in this case, the first film) has paved the way for the talent involved, director Niels Arden Oplev and actress Noomi Rapace. Now hard at work on an English-language reunion, "Dead Man Down," the duo have managed to get us excitied with a grimey-sounding revenge-actioner that boasts a stellar cast that includes Colin Farrell, Dominic Cooper, Terrence Howard and Isabelle Huppert.
