Everyone's favorite hapless and insecure Londoner is back, and this time, she's bringing a baby. Yes, the third installment in the adventures of Bridget Jones is gearing up, and it now has a title that says it all: "Bridget Jones's Baby." And moreover, it has a director.

Do North American audiences care about Julia Roberts anymore? The last time Roberts starred in a movie that cracked $100 million dollars domestic that wasn't a franchise or cameo appearance was over 10 years ago in "Erin Brokovich." Yes, "Eat Pray Love" did solid business, but it did much better overseas. And all you have to do is look at the tepid reception of this summer's "Larry Crowne" -- featuring a seemingly one-two punch pairing of Roberts and Tom Hanks -- to realize that the actress' glory days are long behind her. She'll try playing a baddie of sorts next spring in Tarsem's ridiculous looking "Mirror Mirror," but she's developing another movie that she hopes will get her back in the good graces of fans.

While the first teaser trailer for Disney's very, very expensive "John Carter" was all atmosphere and mystery, with a release date fast approaching a $300 million price tag to justify, a brand new trailer has landed today at IGN and it's certainly ditching any pretense of being thoughtful. Though the use of Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir" (or a resonable facsimilie anyway) does its job of shorthanding the gravitas.

One of the most engagingly strange movies of the past year was the killer flick "Rubber." Brought to life by Quentin Dupieux, the film was a true original, telling the tale of a car tire (yes, a car tire) with telepathic, muderous powers. The movie was a big genre hit and put Dupieux on the map. Well, he's back once again and headed to Sundance with a brand new film.

Well, this was probably inevitable. With Christian Bale taking on two Terrence Malick movies in 2012, "Lawless" and "Knight of Cups" which are shooting back-to-back, it made the prospect of him appearing in Darren Aronofsky's dream project "Noah" all the more unlikely. Well, now it's official as Variety confirms his exit, but reveals another intriguing name as possibility to take over.

Not be rude or crude, but the biggest thing about Alice Eve's Hollywood movie career so far has been her considerable assets. They pretty much did half of the heavy lifting in her role as the braless babysitter in "Sex & the City 2" and the entire plot of "She's Out of My League" revolved around how hot she was. But Eve showed she can play smart and beautiful with her stint on the fucking terrible final season of "Entourage," which also displayed she could rise above brutal material. She was also charming in the underseen Brit flick "Starter For Ten" many years back, which brings us to "Star Trek 2," because guess what fanboys, she's joining the Enterprise.

Just a year ago, Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij were scrambling to finish their debut collaboration, “Sound of My Voice,” to have it ready in time for the Sundance Film Festival. Speaking last week to Marling from the Shreveport, LA set of their follow-up, “The East,” the multitalented actress seemed enormously grateful for the opportunities she and Batmanglij are currently enjoying, even if Hollywood hasn’t yet quite written them a blank check.
