You would have to look at people like Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra or Johnny Cash to find those who have achieved the same kind of iconic, influential status of Bob Marley. The reggae legend took his unique sound from Jamaica around the world, inspiring millions with his message of togetherness, rebellion and love. And while his face has become an image almost as ubiquitous as that of Che Guevara, a whole new generation of music fans may not be familiar with his work and achievements, but the upcoming, years-in-the-making, Kevin Macdonald-directed documentary, "Marley," will hopefully change that.

A heist pic, a police procedural, a musical and comedy all rolled into -- you won't be surprised to learn this inventive blend of genres doesn't come from Hollywood, but instead is finding its way to U.S. theaters via Sweden.

Angelina Jolie is hardly prolific when it comes to churning out movies of late, and even less prolific when it comes to churning out good ones. When she does appear in movies she does so as one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, and as a result she's likely one of the most in-demand actresses around which suggests she must be very selective. But that just makes it all the more confusing when she picks some of the projects she does. Aside from voicing a tiger in the two "Kung Fu Panda" movies, the past five years has seen Jolie make six movies. Two were quite good ("A Mighty Heart," "Changeling"), two were not ("Beowulf," "The Tourist") and two were disappointing action movies ("Wanted," "Salt").

In the decade since "The Sum Of All Fears" hit theaters, becoming a modest success, Paramount have been keen to continue to mine the works of Tom Clancy that they've had success with on "The Hunt For Red October," "Patriot Games" and "Clear And Present Danger." Soon after that film's release, John Woo was signed to direct a movie version of "Rainbow Six," while in 2006, Joaquin Phoenix signed on to star in "Without Remorse" for director John Singleton. Neither came to pass, and a few years later, Sam Raimi came on to tackle a new take on Jack Ryan, Clancy's best known character, with reports that Ryan Gosling was being sought for the lead, but Raimi left almost as soon as he came on board.

It's been a long time coming but with the imminent release of "John Carter," Disney seem to have finally woken up and remembered that they have a job to do in marketing the movie. While this writer has seen and failed to buy in to the movie amid mountains of exposition, there's still enough promise there for a stronger sequel, and enough demonstrable care and dedication in the craft that it's hard not to will it to do well at the box office and avoid being the disaster some have predicted it will be.

Weekend Box Office: 'The Lorax' Rules The Roost, While 'The Artist' Fails To Capitalize On Oscar Night

Will Smith, Steven Spielberg, Nicolas Sparks, Tyler Perry – to these foolproof brands, add one more: the late Dr. Seuss. “The Grinch,” “The Cat in The Hat“ and “Horton Hears a Who” have all grossed over $100 million, and now, opening with stronger numbers than the three of them is “The Lorax.” The environmentally-minded ‘toon, which ironically has helped market SUVs, is the third effort from Illumination Entertainment, and it looks very likely to outgross the openings of both “Despicable Me” and “Hop.” Industry expectations pegged this as a huge opener, as it was a notably deflated market with no animated blockbusters since last winter’s mostly well-received “Puss-In-Boots.” In other words, duh.

"Kill your idols," said Paul Dano at the red carpet event for "Being Flynn." The Focus Features release, based on the autobiographical novel "Another Bullshit Night In Suck City" by Nick Flynn, focuses on Flynn's rocky relationship with his self-proclaimed tortured genius of a father. A homeless vagabond who insisted he was purposely seeking material for his unfinished manuscript, Jonathan was a stubborn old man who frustrated Nick in adulthood, but was never present in Nick's childhood, leading to Nick having no idea what to think about this walking myth. A fairly different definition of an idol, but in the directionless young Nick's eyes, the next best thing.

You wanted it, you got it. Whatever you think of this weekend's outrageous found footage party movie "Project X" there is no denying that the filmmakers provided a serious playlist to accompany the debauchery on screen. And while 13 of those songs were collected for the official soundtrack that was released earlier this week, we've heard from more than a few readers that they want to know every song that was featured in the film. Well, we've tracked down that list and here it is: all the music that rocked your eardrums in "Project X."

The past week or so has seen a handful of new titles assigned to upcoming movies. Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut is now known as "Don Jon's Addiction," David Chase's period-based music movie is now called "Not Fade Away" and Kathryn Bigelow's Osama Bin Laden thriller has a fresh (working) title: "Zero Dark Thirty." And those are all fine changes, nothing too shocking and in keeping with what those films are about. But yet another movie has been given a new moniker, and we're less pleased about this one.
