Happy Friday the 13th everyone! Jason is putting on the hockey mask and black cats everywhere are doing wind sprints to make sure they won’t miss you when you walk past. Not sure how to beat all the bad luck? Try going to the movies (and leaving your umbrella at home)! Toads and goldfish aren’t allowed in theaters and there are no mirrors to break or cracks in the floor to step on. Plus, the horror, thriller, romantic comedy, and documentary films coming out this weekend should provide great distraction. But be sure to bring some salt with you. Just in case.

There has been no end to speculation about where Woody Allen would be making his next film. Copenhagen and Munich were two of the most recent cities said to be in the mix for the writer/director's next venture, while any possibility of the Allen returning to his native U.S. soil were long put to pasture as financing from American backers has been dry for years. But in a pleasant surprise, it looks like Woody won't need his passport for his next movie.

The honor for Most Surprising Sequel Announcement Of 2012 was briefly held by "Anchorman 2" until yesterday afternoon when out of nowhere, Robert Rodriguez and company revealed that production on the long developing, forever talked about "Sin City" followup -- now titled "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" -- was going to go in front of cameras with casting to start next week. And that news nearly made us forget about the other sequel Rodriguez is gearing up, "Machete Kills," and once again, he's hoping to land some big names.

While the show only lasted a season (although ratings were enough that, were it on today, it would be a big hit), so much of what's proved successful in the comedy world in the last decade can be traced back to " Freaks & Geeks." Executive produced by Judd Apatow, who's been behind many of the most successful comedies in recent years, from "Anchorman" to the upcoming "The Five-Year Engagement," and created by Paul Feig, who reunited with Apatow for last year's smash hit "Bridesmaids," it followed a group of nerds and burnouts in a Michigan high school.

This summer a bunch of very attractive men are going to take it off and shake it in Steven Soderbergh's "Magic Mike." Starring a calendar ready cast including Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer, Joe Mangianello and more, it will definitely be something different at the multiplex that will be filled with CGI and explosions over the next few months. JustJared has unveiled a couple new looks at the film, but if you think this is just light entertainment for the ladies, guess again.

Say Anything
"Say Anything" was not particularly successful on its release. John Cusack was an established star of films like "The Sure Thing," but co-star Ione Skye was basically unknown, and director Cameron Crowe was, despite his writing credit on "Fast Times At Ridgemont High" eight years earlier, not a known quantity. As such, despite rave reviews, it only took $20 million at the domestic box office, and a meagre $733,000 internationally -- indeed, in many territories, like the U.K, it went straight to video.

Is there a curse of sci-fi movies set on Mars? We don't believe that, but there's plenty of evidence to support that theory, with virtually every film set on our nearest planetary neighbor -- from "Mission To Mars" to "Red Planet" from "Ghosts Of Mars" and "Mars Needs Moms" to "John Carter" -- all disappointing critically, commercially or both. But director Ruairi Robinson ain't afraid of no curse.
