From sensual Catwoman to....not so sensual Fantine. Tom Hooper's big, Oscar-baiting musical "Les Miserables" continues to roll in front of cameras, and the press and paparazzi continue to be out in full force. Not only do we get a first look at remarkably skinny Anne Hathaway as Fantine, also boasting a rather rough-hewn hairstyle, Amanda Seyfried has also been snapped on set as Cosette. But perhaps the greatest bit is some video that has captured the best look at the film yet.

Casting anybody in the roles of the legendary Joni Mitchell and Carole King was always going to be a difficult task, but these choices -- well, one in particular -- will be sure to draw some interesting scrutiny and controversy.

The cinematic Marvel-DC "arms race" is a bit of an illusion, since Marvel has leased their properties to many other studios, and DC's characters all exist underneath the Warner Bros. banner. Still, WB is smart enough to know that superheroes sell right now, and with the departure of "Harry Potter," the end of the Chris Nolan "Batman" films, and a final "Hangover" hitting next summer, they're clearly hard-up for franchises right now. Which is why DC and the WB are partnering to bring "The Flash" "Wonder Woman" "Lobo" to the big screen, with the help of the visionary auteur behind "Cats And Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore."

Pairing up hot young things Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in a movie together is a no brainer, and Warner Bros. has done it twice already, first with last summer's hit comedy "Crazy, Stupid, Love" and then in the upcoming (and now undated) "Gangster Squad." And if 'Crazy' directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa get their way, the studio will once again reunite the duo.

Recognize that face, but don't know his name? Don't worry, this actor is definitely one of those "hey, it's that guy" dudes. A television regular having featured on shows such as "Deadwood," "Sons Of Anarchy" and "Lost," character actor Titus Welliver is someone you would have come across on the small screen, but he's also teamed with the Afflecks on all three of Ben's directorial efforts including the upcoming "Argo." The actor is now set to complete the Boston trifecta, joining Matt Damon in Gus Van Sant's upcoming "Promised Land."

One of the best horror-esque ghost story films of the previous decade was Juan Antonio Bayona's "The Orphanage," likely because it was much more than your average, spooks-in-the-attic horror, and was a rich and emotionally textured drama just as much as it was a classic ghost tale. It instantly made Bayona, a protege of Guillermo del Toro, one to watch.

It seems Guy Pearce is liking this whole blockbuster thing. While "Lockout" didn't quite make waves at the box office (okay, it barely made a splash) it was clear he had a ball of a time as the wisecracking lead, but now he's joining an established franchise in a role that won't be as showy, but will be crucial.

Remember Michael Pitt's big screen career? No? Well, okay, we forgive you. It seems like a distant memory since we last saw him in "Silk" and "Funny Games U.S.," and that's kinda because it really was a long time ago. A whole five years in fact. Since then Pitt has only appeared in a couple of shorts, and some TV show that you may or may not have heard of -- it goes by the name of "Boardwalk Empire."

Watch: New 'Men In Black 3' Footage Featured In The Otherwise Intolerable Video For Pitbull's "Back In Time"

Since "Men In Black 3" is the continuation of a franchise that started in the '90s, it's no surprise that everything about the movie so far has felt ripped right out the decade. But perhaps no aspect has been more dated (or embarrassing) than the theme song by Pitbull. Continuing a trend that should have died a long time ago -- seriously, who does this anymore? -- the vapid rapper takes over for Will Smith, delivering the theme song for the movie or whatever.

Director Xavier Dolan Says He's Disappointed 'Laurence Anyways' Won't Be In Competition, But Still Happy To Be Headed To Cannes

While yesterday brought good news to directors, actors, productions and distributors with the Cannes Film Festival unveiling their slate, there is one filmmaker who was a bit prickled at first. Montreal's Xavier Dolan. The 23-year-old is no stranger to the south of France, winning acclaim for his debut film "J’ai tué ma mère" which premiered at the Director's Fortnight sidebar. Then in 2010 he graduated to the festival proper, screening "Heartbeats" in the Un Certain Regard category. Many expected his latest effort, "Laurence Anyways," to finally land him a slot In Competition, but alas, he's been relegated to Un Certain Regard again, and he admits, it wasn't the news he was hoping for.
