It's been a long time coming, but this summer finally sees the theatrical release of Canadian actress-writer-director Sarah Polley's sophomore effort behind the camera, with the romantic drama "Take This Waltz." There's no lack of star power featured in Polley's film, with Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen leading the cast. Now a new poster and a couple of new images have been unveiled to help the film find an audience.

Whose Crazy Has The Most Truth? Joe Eszterhas & Mel Gibson Battle Spills Online With Anti-Semitic Slurs Leading The Charge

Yesterday afternoon, it was reported that Mel Gibson's Jewish epic about Maccabee, the man who led a Jewish revolt against the Greek-Syrian armies that conquered Judea in the second century B.C., was put on hold at Warner Bros. because the script by Joe Eszterhas ("Basic Instinct," "Jade") wasn't working. And then things got ugly. The Wrap posted a scathing nine-page letter the screenwriter had privately sent Gibson, and it's an eye-melting read, giving a first-hand account of the actor/director's rage and, more troublingly, his apparent unwavering anti-Semitism. Deadline got in the game with a statement from Gibson that calmly denied the charges. So it's Eszterhas vs. Gibson, and both stories are wildly different, and we'd reckon as these things usually go, the truth stands somewhere in the middle. So let's break it down...

We have to admit, we toyed around with alternate headlines, and nearly went with: "Poster For 'Django' Is 'Unchained'!" But at any rate, here we are, and let the drooling begin as the Spanish poster for Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" has been unveiled with a pretty big and not too surprising nod to the classic western one sheets of yore, all with a little contemporary minimalist modern design sauce thrown in the mix.

Production begins next week in the U.K. on Focus Features and Working Title's latest collaboration: an untitled suspense thriller that stars Eric Bana, Rebecca Hall and Jim Broadbent. And there's plenty of reason to pay attention, apart from the boutique studios with discerning film taste and these three stars.

Alden Ehrenreich...franchise star? That looks like it could be the case. The indie darling and Coppola fave (appearing in Sofia's "Somewhere" and Francis' "Tetro" and "Twixt") isn't a stranger to franchise movies, having tested last fall for Warner Bros' stuck-in-development-hell "Akira," but now he's making a move that will put him in front of his biggest audience yet.

So, Guillermo Del Toro's big secret blockbuster "Pacific Rim" is now shooting in the chameleonic Toronto, but instead of standing in for New York City or Chicago as it usually does, the streets have been completely redone as Tokyo. CBC News has a report which shows off some flashes of sets and behind the scenes action, and yes, they do call it "Still Seas" which we presume is the working title being tossed around town so fanboys don't storm with the city with dodgy cell phone cameras. Watch below.

"Hey, let's give Mel Gibson a bunch of money to make a period based, swords-and-sandals epic about a pivotal moment in Jewish history!"....that's not a sentence you'll be hearing at Warner Bros. now or probably anytime soon, as the studio has put the brewing epic movie on hold. Can't say we're shocked.

It seems that Jennifer Lawrence can't get out of the woods. She made her name with a breakthrough performance in the Southern Gothic tinged "Winter's Bone," and is currently hunting children to the tune of major box office dollars in "The Hunger Games." And before she heads back to Panem, she's gonna get one non-blockbuster effort in the can.

In a recent New York Times profile by Margy Rochlin, Krysten Ritter, ex-model and co-writer/star of “L!fe Happens,” talks about the film as her labor of love. She flinches when mixed reviews are mentioned, claiming the film “shouldn’t be reviewed” and “All that anybody should say about this film is ‘Good for you, girls, go get ‘em.’ -- and that it’s adorable.”
