After turning his back on his usual fall festival unveilings which worked so well for him with his first three films, Jason Reitman is set to finally unleash "Young Adult" on the world next week and we, for one, can't wait. Whetting our appetities now though, is the release of a red band TV spot which seemingly provides a little more insight into the twisted mind of Charlize Theron's protagonist, Mavis Gary.

World War, Tom Hanks and American heroism go together like peanut butter and jelly.

It seems that not even the Thanksgiving weekend can't stop either of the Scott brothers from attaching themselves to a project. This time around, it's Tony Scott and with comparisons being made to his previous films "Crimson Tide" and "Man On Fire," we guess we're not suprised that he's now signed on for "Narco Sub."

For Jonathan Demme, who has vacillated between feature films and documentaries for his entire career, music has played a vital part of his non-fiction works. Having directed films/concert movies for Neil Young and the Talking Heads, music videos for Bruce Springsteen and The Pretenders and more, Demme's personal playlists have been as vital as any screenplay that he's written. And while we're still no closer to a feature film followup to "Rachel Getting Married," the director is once again following his musical muse.

We've lost track of what movies are becoming TV shows and what TV shows are becoming movies, which is why we kind of totally forgot this was happening at all. But John Grisham's "The Firm" -- the best-selling novel turned servicable, engrossing-on-cable-at-2-AM Tom Cruise vehicle -- is headed to NBC and a couple of teasers have arrived in advance of its debut in 2012.

Though he's still best known as Coach Eric Taylor on "Friday Night Lights," Kyle Chandler has been taking some much deserved steps onto the big screen. This summer his was one of the biggest names amongst the mostly newcomer cast in J.J. Abrams' "Super 8" and this fall, he's been working on Ben Affleck's forthcoming "Argo." Well, he's lined up one more starry vehicle as he continues to put the yards between himself and the football drama.

With a new movie to promote, Angelina Jolie took a rare in depth, on camera interview with "60 Minutes" this weekend and the results were mostly of the vague comment variety that celeb blogs love to speculate on about endlessly. We learn the startling revelation that Jolie was "chubby" as a kid (JUST LIKE REGULAR PEOPLE) and had "big lips." She also alluded to her earlier "heavy, darker times" without explaining any of it (not even that weird vial of blood she wore around her neck circa Billy Bob Thornton). Oh yeah, and she claims "I'm still a bad girl." Riveting. But amongst the mostly empty piece, the folks over at CBS did manage to get one interesting morsel of news out of their interview.
