A lot of conservatives were huffing and puffing in the 1990s when Disney bought Miramax Films and started distributing non-family rare like “Pulp Fiction.” Well, here’s hoping you’re happy: Miramax is dead and a few years back, Disney CEO Rich Ross announced that he would no longer be greenlighting any film that wasn’t family oriented and/or a franchise, not to mention that nothing coming out of the mouse house would be rated R.

You may or may not have seen any of "Luther," a crime procedural from the BBC that stars "The Wire" breakout Idris Elba as the titular cop, the kind of rule-eschewing maverick that cliches are made of. We wouldn't blame you for skipping it by, on BBC America or elsewhere, but it's actually a ton of fun for fans of the genre, partly thanks to the excellent performances of Elba (who was Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated), and Ruth Wilson, as his Hannibal Lecter-style nemesis/BFF, and partly because it embraces its own so ridiculousness with a big warm hug. There are few other shows that would see a Satanist villian lick a woman's face in the opening few minutes.

The perils, loneliness and emptiness of celebrity have a familiar theme for Sofia Coppola, explored in most her films including "Lost In Translation," "Marie Antoinette" and "Somewhere." And if a report coming out of TMZ is accurate, she's once again going to dip into that world, albeit from a different angle.

No matter how they'll fare during the upcoming award season, it was really only a matter of time before we heard a lot more from "The Artist" stars Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo. Their demand is sure to shoot through the roof and, now, it looks like Bejo is already plotting her upcoming schedule, scoring a role in an adaptation of Daniel Pennac's classic French novel "The Scapegoat (Au Bonheur des Ogres)" co-starring Raphaël Personnaz and Emir Kusturica.

During his 27 years in Hollywood, Hans Zimmer has produced hundreds of film scores, sometimes five or six in the span of one year. But what’s interesting about his work is that it’s become more eclectic and undefinable, not less, as his career has progressed. Listening to his more recent work on films such as “Inception” and “Sherlock Holmes,” there are few traces of the synthesizer-heavy material he made his name with in the 1980s, and remarkably, few similarities even between those two recent examples. But even with expectations for his score for “The Dark Knight Rises” looming large over his work for the forthcoming film, Zimmer told The Playlist that he’s not sure how much the score will share in common with its atonal predecessor.

For a movie that has been flying pretty much completely under the radar, the filmmakers behind the Luc Besson produced sci-fi thriller "Lockout" have put together a pretty odd, yet definitely compelling, first look at the film. An international trailer has arrived for the film and it consists mostly of Guy Pearce getting punched in the face.

Now most of the awards contenders have been unveiled, the major secrets left in the 2011 movie advent calendar are a few big, loud blockbusters that'll hit around Christmas; films like "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol," "The Darkest Hour," and, um, "Alvin & The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked." Will they be sweet, sugar-y goodness, or the cinematic equivalent of Billy Bob Thornton drunkenly eating the whole thing late at night, and then remorsefully filling it with candy corn and taping it up again?
