We have to admit, on paper, "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" sounds a bit ridiculous as far as historical/genre mashups go. But the film has quietly been building buzz thanks to some edgy stills released over the past few weeks, and production's focus less on big name stars, and more on character actors to bring the story to life. While we'll have to see if Benjamin Walker is a name that will get audiences to buy a ticket this summer, this new trailer debuted at Time may be all they need to fill out multiplex screens.

Festival scene regular Brillante Mendoza is certainly a divisive filmmaker with his shaky-cam, documentary-like sensibilities. Like Hong Sang-soo has evidently uncovered, if you're a filmmaker who frequents Cannes with success, you're likely to catch the eyes of French-thesp Isabelle Huppert who's starring in the helmer's latest effort, "Captive."

Dominic Cooper has been on a tear lately, raising his profile in 2011 thanks to his dual role turn in "The Devil's Double" and his stint in the comic book tentpole "Captain America: The First Avenger." But it seems there may be some changes on the horizon for the actor. He's got a handful of projects on the way -- "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," "Summer In February," "Half Of A Yellow Sun," "Motor City" -- with his calendar becoming full, and it seems his latest manuever may mean dropping the latter studio pic as a result.

The screen career of Jennifer Aniston has been a frustrating one. She's been in hits and misses, critically acclaimed projects like "The Good Girl" and critically reviled ones like "Just Go With It," but she's arguably never quite found the role that will let her escape from the shadow of Rachel on "Friends." Maybe the Judd Apatow-produced comedy "Wanderlust," which opens next week will be that film, but in the meantime, Aniston's teaming up with a fast-rising British writer-director for another project.

Gary Oldman Discusses 'Tinker Tailor,' 'The Dark Knight Rises' & 'Harry Potter' In A Career-Spanning Conversation At Lincoln Center

One of the most esteemed actors of his generation, it’s truly a blunder for the Academy that until this year Gary Oldman had never even been nominated for an Oscar. During his 30 year career he’s shown extraordinary range, playing real life figures like Sid Vicious, Lee Harvey Oswald and Ludwig van Beethoven, literary icons like Rosencrantz, Dracula, Sirius Black, Lt. Jim Gordon and George Smiley and indelible cinematic creations like Drexl Spivey,  Stansfield and Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg. He’s appeared in supporting parts and leading roles, indies and blockbuster franchises, he’s even stepped behind the camera to write and direct 1997’s “Nil By Mouth,” and has been kicking around a project for over a decade about a sex addict which he still hopes to get off the ground. It really seems as though there is not anything Oldman isn’t capable of.

'A Prophet' Star Tahar Rahim To Star In Fatih Akin's Next 'The Cut'

When your major debut thrusts you into the limelight the way that Tahar Rahim's turn in "A Prophet" did, it'd be easy to take the first big paycheck that comes along and run with it. But aside from his warrior in "The Eagle" (which, while it didn't turn out so well, at least looked more interesting on paper than most Hollywood fare), the French star has resisted the fast buck, preferring instead to work with international auteurs like Lou Ye, Ismael Ferroukhi and Jean-Jacques Annaud, a laudable position for an actor who's clearly much in demand.

Jim Carrey's French Flavored Comedy 'Pierre Pierre' Will Finally Shoot This Summer

It's been a quiet few years for Jim Carrey. Since the release of Robert Zemeckis' "A Christmas Carol" back in 2009 in which Carrey underwent the mo-cap treatment, we've only seen him in the disappointing "Mr. Popper's Penguins." So, more accurately, it's actually been a long time since we saw Carrey in a legitimately good film. If you ignore the brilliant "I Love You Phillip Morris" (which me might as well considering the amount of people who saw it) Carrey hasn't shown up in a decent film in quite a few years. But might all that be about to change?

Angelina Jolie Says She'll Make Sleeping Beauty Reboot 'Maleficent' Next

Given her omnipresence in the media, it's easy to forget that Angelina Jolie hasn't actually appeared on screen for eighteen months, since the ill-fated "The Tourist." She's not been idle -- far from it, with voice work in "Kung Fu Panda 2" and her directorial debut "In The Land Of Blood and Honey" landing in 2011. But given that she's one of the few actresses who are able to get a project greenlight solely on their name, her absence from starring roles has surely been felt in certain quarters.
