Yes, it's yet another offer for "Akira," although this one brings with it even more ammunition for the already disgruntled fans of the original manga and anime.

"The Movie With The Endless Marketing." Yeah, listen, we get it. The stories on the next effort from David Fincher seem to be endless, but when it's based one of the biggest-selling books of the last few years, promises a hard R-rated procedural in the midst of the holiday season and a potential star-making turn by Rooney Mara, it's hard not to be excited. And oh yeah, add to that a brand new score from Oscar-winning duo Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, and well, what else do you want us to do?

An abandoned, crumbling orphanage? Oddball and potentially dangerous children? And an adventure to uncover a mystery? No wonder Tim Burton wants to direct this thing.

Right before “Butter” premiered at the Telluride Film Festival this past September, The Weinstein Company had ambitions that the film might become a dark horse Oscar contender, exciting the left-leaning Academy with its sharp digs at a Michele Bachmann/Sarah Palin-like character played by Jennifer Garner. Well, it’s November, and "Butter" wasn't quite an across the board hit at Telluride and Bachmann is now a non-factor in the Presidential race.

Given our reboot-happy culture, it was only a matter of time before long-running BBC science-fiction series "Doctor Who" got the movie treatment, despite the fact that it's still on the air, and gaining a bigger international audience than ever before. But this afternoon's news that David Yates (who directed half of the films in the mammoth "Harry Potter" franchise) is developing a big screen version still came as something of a surprise. And, with the announcement that it'll depart from established continuity, shunning recent stars like Matt Smith and David Tennant and starting afresh.

Of all the potential Oscar heavyhitters, none remains a more tantalizing X-factor than David Fincher's "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo." Based on a novel by Stieg Larsson beloved by literary enthusiasts and book clubs the nation over, it has a reasonably large chance of being a box office titan and a serious awards contender, even if nobody has seen it yet. But if there's one person that remains skeptical about the film's Oscar chances, it's Fincher himself. In this week's Entertainment Weekly cover story (partially excerpted online), he jokes that “There’s too much anal rape in this movie” to secure major nominations.

Chronicling the lives of four men deep in the throes of crisis, if "I Melt With You" proves anything, it's that these guys had great taste in music in college. Playing like a mixtape you made circa the early '90s, the soundtrack for the film spans fourteen tracks featuring some pretty solid selections.
