Being bad seems to be a good fit for Charlize Theron. She got an Oscar for it thanks to her turn in "Monster," she looked impressive as the Evil Queen in the first trailer for "Snow White And The Huntsman" and her performance as the prickly Mavis Gary in Jason Reitman's "Young Adult" may have her headed back to the Kodak Theater in February.

In the summer of 2010, Illumination Entertainment burst onto the feature animation scene with the charming and original "Despicable Me." Their upcoming adaptation of Dr. Seuss' "The Lorax" looks diverting enough, but last spring's dreadful Russell Brand-as-the-Easter-bunny live-action hybrid "Hop" was the first step in a 'Chipmunks' direction.

One of the most talked-about films this spring was Paolo Sorrentino's followup to "Il Divo," the oddball roadtrip movie "This Must Be The Place." Starring a Robert Smith-channeling Sean Penn, the film is an odd one, a gothic holocaust dramedy of sorts about an aging rocker who goes to find the SS officer who tortured his estranged father, who recently passed away. Reviews were mixed, but curiousity abounded not only for the chance to see Penn do something quite out of step with his usual screen appearances, but also because of a score led by new tunes from David Byrne and Will Oldham. Well, while we wait for The Weinstein Company to release this movie, details on the soundtrack have arrived, though you'll have to import this one for now.

It's hard not to lament the career that Bryan Singer might have had. When he broke out with the arrival of "The Usual Suspects," one of the most textured and well-achieved of the post-"Pulp Fiction" wave of crime flicks, it seemed like the annoucement of a major talent, and the underrated "Apt Pupil" only seemed to re-emphasize that. But ever since, the filmmaker has strayed further and further into the blockbuster world, and it has become clear that his ambitions lie more in becoming the next Richard Donner than a great auteur. The last fifteen years have seen two "X-Men" movies -- the second admittedly being by some distance the best in the franchise -- one "Superman" film and one big-budget Tom Cruise war film.

We have to admit, this is one of those projects we'd been hearing about for a while, and being an indie production, it's always hard to tell when these things will actually get off the ground. But when you have a guy like super producer Scott Rudin throwing his weight around, things get done, and moreover, big names can come into play. During the spring, Mark Ruffalo confirmed with us that he was taking a hard look at "Red Light Winter," and now an actress who has been riding an incredible wave of buzz all year confirms that he is aboard and that she is coming along as well.
