Hot off the heels of delivering one of 2011's biggest turkeys, the almost-direct-to-video Nicolas Cage/Nicole Kidman home invasion thriller "Trespass," Joel Schumacher has been removed from the Troika Pictures' thriller "The Hive" and replaced by "The Machinist" helmer Brad Anderson, reports Variety. This should surprise exactly no one.

If 2012 is the battle of the Snow White movies, it looks like 2013 may be the smuttier war between porn biopics of the infamous Linda Lovelace. Hot on the heels of "Lovelace" shoring up their cast with Demi Moore and Adam Brody, "Inferno" has fired back with casting of its own.

In case you didn't get the memo, for the most part, the major studios no longer sweat the small stuff. It's all about the tentpole these days, and the bigger the better with more and more movies going all in on their budgets, and then crossing their fingers that the all important first weekend is a big one. Franchises are either made or broken on those numbers between Friday and Sunday night, but between all the studios throwing elbows for dominance, in 2011 it was Paramount who won the battle taking home the biggest market share. And heading into 2012, they are hoping to keep that streak alive and have one of the biggest stars in the world in their arsenal to help them do it.

There were few films more divisive at last year's South by Southwest Film Festival than Ti West's creepy, kooky "The Innkeepers." We found the film to be an absolute delight and easily one of the highlights, not only of the midnight movie line-up, but the festival as a whole.

Even though he's been twice voted by People magazine as the Sexiest Man Alive, it looks like you're going to see George Clooney at his rawest. As if Alfonso Cuaron's 3D space thriller "Gravity" wasn't already ambitious enough, he's gone ahead and given the marketing department a headache by insisting on uglying up his actors.

While promoting his forthcoming counterfeit thriller "Contraband" (out later this month), star Mark Wahlberg was asked by MTV about his involvement in Tim Burton's "Planet of the Apes," since the new entry in the franchise, last August's "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," got considerably kinder reviews. "I haven't seen it yet, but I heard it was pretty damn good," Wahlberg said. "Well, ours wasn't. It is what it is." Wahlberg with the self deprecation.

A trailer for the "Men In Black 3" hit just before Christmas and mostly focused on the time-jumping storyline and Josh Brolin's eerie Tommy Lee Jones impersonation, but we didn't see much in the way of creatures or a villain (probably because VFX are still being worked on). Well, now a peek at the baddie has surfaced.

After releasing one of 2011's very best movies, the serial killer epic "I Saw the Devil," South Korean director Kim Ji-Woon is about to embark on an even scarier proposition: a big Hollywood movie starring none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger. That film, the revenge western "The Last Stand," isn't slated to come out until January 18, 2013, but it seems the lure of Hollywood has proven fleeting. According to Twitch Film, Kim is headed back to Korea for his next film. Sorry Arnold, we're sure it was nothing personal.
