Even though she nabbed the biggest exposure and acclaim of her career to date thanks to her Oscar nominated turn in "Up In The Air," Vera Farmiga has continued to march to the beat of her own drum. She's eschewed big glossy tentpoles, using her post-Oscar heat to make her directorial debut "Higher Ground," as well as take roles in a diverse array of projects from high concept sci-fi ("Source Code"), indie dramedy (the recently Sundance premiered "Goats") and even a B-movie potboiler in this weekend's "Safe House." And the actress continues to take on new challenges, with her next gig providing another intriguing role.

If Bruce Willis is your Dad in a movie, and he says he's just a business consultant for the government, chances are, he's probably something up to something else. But someone didn't tell that to Henry Cavill, who finds himself dodging bullets in Madrid in the first trailer for "The Cold Light Of Day."

In person, John Krasinski doesn’t seem all that different from his television alter-ego, Jim Halpert. He’s easy going, perennially charming and usually smirking, ever ready with a clever quip at just the right moment.

Finally, the Oscar nominations were announced last Tuesday. Furthermore, three of the four big guilds -- the Producers, the Director's and the Screen Actors -- have given out their awards over the last couple of weekends, with only the Writers still to hand out any statuettes. So at last, months and months down the line, we can stop talking about what's going to be be nominated, and start talking about what's going to win. Or at least who's leading the field at this point.

It seems Universal is going for the full blanket, four quadrant marketing approach for "Snow White And The Huntsmen." While Charlize Theron's movie tie-in appearance on "Top Chef" ensures that older, high faultin' foodie types are aware of what the movie is, the studio has been going full throttle on Facebook to keep fan interest stoked.

Filmmaker Roman Coppola is no stranger to chronicling strange corners of some seminal cultural decades. While he's spent the last decade assisting friends and family like Sofia, Francis Ford Coppola and Wes Anderson (he co-wrote the upcoming "Moonrise Kingdom") his vastly underrated directorial debut, "CQ," is a hilarious and wonderfully weird look at the '60s, filtered through the black and white solipsism of the French New Wave and the wacky, outre aesthetic of spy films like "Danger Diabolik" and cornball sci-fi like "Barbarella."

2011 was the year of the great purge over at Universal. A sudden round of belt-tightening saw the studio put the brakes on a number of projects ("At The Mountains Of Madness" and "The Dark Tower" among the most high profile), but no relationship was cut more severely than the one with toymaker Hasbro. With Universal in deep to the tune of $200 million for "Battleship," they wisely realized that maybe this whole turning toys in to movies thing isn't such a hot idea and over the last twelve months dropped a number of those projects that were brewing including “Monopoly,” “The Gathering,” “Magic,” "Clue" and "Ouija" (though Hasbro is continuing to develop them). And you can now add one more to the body count.
