The residing prince of indie-horror Ti West's latest effort, "The Innkeepers," has been a bit slow to hit theaters. The picture, which stars Sara Paxton ("Shark Night 3D"), Pat Healy, Kelly McGillis (yes, that Kelly McGillis), and features a brief cameo by Lena Dunham, premiered at SXSW earlier this year and was supposed to see a release this fall.

Park City has been the scene of plenty of break-out performances in recent years, but this year's festival looks set to be known as the birth and unveiling of Brit Marling. The actress came to the festival with Mike Cahill's "Another Earth" and Zal Batmanglij's "Sound Of My Voice," and walked away with her name on everyone's lips -- she's since scored roles in "Arbitrage" opposite Richard Gere and Susan Sarandon as well as in Robert Redford's "The Company You Keep," which boasts an all-star cast.

We need to talk about Walter. He's the newest felt-covered creation and the co-lead of sorts in the forthcoming "The Muppets," which continues its full on charm offensive.

Shea Whigham isn't exactly a household name you'd instantly recognize, but a quick look at his resume will certainly ring some bells for anyone with a keen eye for the small or silver screen. At least in this writer's eyes, the actor has been doing strong work on a weekly basis as Eli Thompson, the younger brother of Steve Buscemi's protagonist Nucky on HBO show "Boardwalk Empire" with appearances in several films already this year, including "Take Shelter," "The Lincoln Lawyer" and "This Must Be The Place."

For a brief moment there, it seemed like Scarlett Johansson and Woody Allen were inseparable. Starring in (almost) three straight movies for the director -- "Match Point," "Scoop" and "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" (Allen also delivered "Cassandra's Dream" in that stretch) -- the actress was part of the director's late stage career return to glory after nearly a decade marked by a series of increasingly bad films. But after that trio of pictures, they parted ways at Allen's insistence, fearing that the actress would become defined only by her work with him.

Formerly a potential project for the every busy Guillermo Del Toro to direct, New Line's re-imagined "Peter Pan" film really started moving forward when "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" animation wizard Ben Hibon moved into the director's chair, and kicked into life when it added Aaron Eckhart, Anna Sophia Robb and Sean Bean to its cast. Well that already impressive cast just received a delightful addition to its already superb ensemble

While 7,772 petitioners are still waiting for that “Veronica Mars” movie (Warner Bros. is apparently just going to ignore $80,000 in potential box office receipts), Joel Silver is moving on with his life by producing “The Galton Case,” a Ross Macdonald mystery novel about private detective Lew Archer. 'Galton' is the eighth book in a series of novels about Archer. Why not start with any of the first seven tomes? It’s either that one through seven are really bad, or the eighth one is just that good. Regardless, Warner Bros. has acquired rights to the entire series (maybe they’ll work their way backwards), and they’re hoping to adapt the novels into an “elevated noir franchise” aka “The Spirit.”

Okay, this writer was pretty harsh on the first two spots for "American Reunion" -- a movie that we still think is totally unnecessary. But that being said, this new full-length trailer for the movie? Okay, it plays on the "blue-balled-husbands" motif that every staple sitcom uses these days, but we have to admit it did make us chuckle in spots.

Can New Regency succeed where The Weinstein Company (gave up) and eventually failed? We'll soon see, as the rights to the long developing "Fraggle Rock" expired over at Harvey's house, with Deadline revealing that New Regency has picked up the reins in a project that is now starting over from scratch.
