Thanks to Quentin Tarantino, it’s hard to imagine that there was a time when Robert Forster wasn’t a respected, steadily-working actor. But Forster himself admits that his career was “underwater” prior to being cast as Max Cherry in “Jackie Brown,” Tarantino’s adaptation of the Elmore Leonard novel "Rum Punch." In fact, he credits the filmmaker’s penchant for making unconventional casting choices for the career he’s enjoyed since the release of the 1997 film, which has included collaborations with Gus Van Sant, David Lynch, Walter Hill, Michel Gondry and Alexander Payne amongst other acclaimed filmmakers.

Although “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World” was a box office disappointment when it was released last fall, the film’s leading lady, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, has found herself more in-demand than ever. On October 14th, she stars in “The Thing,” a prequel/companion piece to John Carpenter’s 1982 horror classic, and next year she appears in the unwieldy, but promising Timur Bekmabetov film “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.” Talking to The Playlist during the press rounds for “The Thing,” Winstead explained that she was excited as audiences are to see the forthcoming film, not the least of which because she didn’t take part in any of the action scenes.

Well, that didn't take long. With "The Lion King" back on store shelves today, Disney executives are likely a bit bummed the theatrical re-release gravy train for the movie is coming to an end. Taking in about $80 million dollars in the past few weeks, everyone has been blown away by the 3D re-release of the film. Powered by its long absence on DVD thanks to Disney's practice of super limited release windows for their movies on home video, coupled with a drought of family fare in September, the studio raked in much more than anticipated in what was likely originally envisioned as just an expensive marketing gig for the new BluRay/DVD release. But they recognize a cash cow when they see it, so get ready Moms and Dads, because there are more on the way.

For a moment there, it seemed like Kirsten Dunst might have found her career floundering in the wake of the Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy, but not only has the actress found her footing, her upcoming roster of films would be the envy of any thesp in Hollywood. There is no better indication than "Melancholia" that Dunst is moving in a new direction. While opinion may be split on Lars Von Trier's film, there is no denying that Dunst's turn in the lead role is easily the best performance of her career, and those on the Croisette thought so too as she walked home with the Best Actress prize this spring. And unlike the events in the film, the future for Dunst after "Melancholia" is looking very bright with a number of promising projects on the horizon.
