Despite a brief flirtation with major stardom, Ethan Hawke has stayed relatively true to the independent scene with his relationship with fellow Texan Richard Linklater seemingly personifying this notion. The two have teamed up for no less than six films including "Waking Life," "Tape," "The Newton Boys," "Fast Food Nation" and, of course, "Before Sunrise" and its sequel "Before Sunset." While Hawke and Linklater also have their long-term project "Boyhood" in the works as well (more on that later), it looks like the two are at it again plotting a reunion with Julie Delpy for a third installement of the uber-popular 'Before...' series.

Summit was either being coy or having a bit more faith in humanity than everyone else by projecting "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part One" to open lower than "New Moon." No such luck, humankind -- the lethal siren song that is Stephenie Meyer's ignorance scored again, with "Breaking Dawn" grabbing $72 million on Friday, beginning an opening weekend that, after final estimates, could even surpass the series' best.

In case you haven't noticed, Matthew McConaughey is done being your buffed and tanned rom-com boy toy. Though he's still as handsome as ever, he's been putting his underrated acting skills first in a number of movies that have stepped away from the persona that made him famous. He led an unexpected box office hit earlier this year with "The Lincoln Lawyer," gives a memorable turn in Richard Linklater's upcoming "Bernie" and he will truly astonish everybody with his perverse performance in William Friedkin's amazingly wicked B-movie, "Killer Joe." Well, the actor is continuing his streak of Interesting Work against Easy Paydays, taking a role in "Take Shelter" director Jeff Nichols' next effort, "Mud." And even though it only started filming this fall, Empire has nabbed the first official look at the film.

There is perhaps no actorly presence more reassuring in Hollywood than that of Jeffrey Wright. An excellent actor, as capable of channeling Basquiat as hanging out with James Bond, it's no surprise he's been courted by a number of high-profile directors over the years including Oliver Stone, Jim Jarmusch, Jonathan Demme, Ang Lee and this year alone, both George Clooney and Stephen Daldry. Well, Wright will once again class up another movie that is already boasting a pretty strong cast.

It's been a pretty horrid year for Netflix. With a price hike combined with a name and service change, they lost stock value and customers in equal measure, forcing the company to go back on their plans and try and salvage some kind of goodwill with both Wall Street and the people who get those little red envelopes every day in the mailbox. Well, it looks like they are heading out of the year on a high note, as the DVD rental and streaming company has picked up the rights to one of the most highly anticipated returns in some time.
