We have to admit, we're still excited whenever we get our hands on an issue of Entertainment Weekly and get a first peek at an upcoming movie, even if its something we aren't all that interested in seeing. Since the rise of the internet however, we are pretty glad to not suffer through pages about "The Last Survivor Bachelorette" or whatever mind-numbing reality show is getting a three page spread just to see Ben Stiller in some sweatpants. Shhh. You're welcome. Just take it.

Considering we've been writing about most weeks since August, it's odd to think that the awards season really only got underway this week. Everything up to now has been foreplay, but with the Gotham Awards on Sunday night, the Spirit Awards nominations and New York Film Critics' Circle Awards on Tuesday, and the National Board of Review yesterday, we're entering the underwear-removal phase of the season. To extend the metaphor. Probably too far.

Someone decided to give Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim of "Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!" fame some money to make a movie. This red band trailer presents what happened to that money. And it is insane.

Cameron Crowe has returned this year with a vengeance, with three pictures in the form of two music documentaries -- the Elton John centered "The Union" and "Pearl Jam Twenty" -- and in just a few short weeks, "We Bought A Zoo." And the material is a bit different than what we've seen from the diretor so far. Based on the best-selling memoir by Benjamin Mee, and penned by "The Devil Wears Prada" writer Aline Brosh McKenna (and fine tuned by Crowe to fit his sensibilties), the story centers on a widowed father (Matt Damon), who keeps a promise to his dead wife and buys a ramshackle home that also happens to adjoin an animal sanctuary. From here he strikes up a relationship with a zookeeper, played by Scarlett Johansson, as the family heals its wounds.

There is one undeniable truth about Jason Reitman's upcoming "Young Adult," and that is Charlize Theron is god damn unstoppable. As a ghost writer for a young adult series of books that closely resemble "Sweet Valley High," she is bitter, depressed, delusional, and obsessive. And you cannot help but love her. Paramount has just released three new clips from the movie, which opens in limited release next week before expanding the week after, and the clips truly capture the toxic/tart nature of the movie (and the utter brilliance of Theron's performance). You can watch all three below.

"...veteran Hollywood screenwriter"? Whoa, whoa there 24 Frames, let's not lose our minds when talking about Allan Loeb. This "veteran" only had his first screenplay produced four years ago ("Things We Lost In The Fire") and since than has become the highest paid hack in Hollywood, getting paid millions to deliver dreck like "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," "The Dilemma," "The Switch" and "Just Go With It." Next year, the mediocrity continues as he's penned the '80s musical "Rock Of Ages" and the Kevin James MMA comedy (we're not fucking kidding) "Here Comes The Boom." The guy also has a number of projects in development, including one bonafide disaster.

It's kind of shocking that we haven't heard more from Hailee Steinfeld, who swept us off our feet last year in The Coen Brothers' "True Grit" remake, going from virtual unknown to critical darling. But maybe she was just biding her time, as Variety is reporting she's about to land a plum role - that of Petra Arkanian, the female lead in OddLot Entertainment's big budget adaptation of Orson Scott Card's sci-fi epic "Ender's Game." According to Variety, she'll be playing "a gifted young gamer skilled in strategy and logistics who's recruited by the government to help battle an insect-like alien race." So, are we sure this isn't just a fancy remake of "WarGames"?

If feels like just yesterday “Cloverfield” was a big hit and the film’s writer, Drew Goddard, got together with Joss Whedon (“The Avengers”) to announce that his next project would be the horror flick “The Cabin in the Woods.” Everybody said, “That sounds cool,” and waited for Obama to become president.
