You can't stop Hollywood from trying to make stars, even if the audience isn't biting. After the complete failure of "Warrior" and "The Thing," Joel Edgerton remains in demand, evevn if he can still walk the streets completely unrecognized. He was in the mix for a potential supporting role in the now-defunct "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." and recently was sought to play Themosticles in the currently-gestating "300: Battle Of Artemisium." However, Variety has heard something new on the Aussie grapevine: they're reporting that Edgerton has turned the role down, leaving the Noam Murro actioner without a leading man.

It has been a couple of years now since "Micmacs," the last film from "Amelie" director Jean-Pierre Jeunet, and as he generally takes a few years between pictures, now is about the time for the helmer to start gearing up make another. Over the summer it was revealed that the helmer had acquired the rights to two books for possible future projects: Reif Larsen's 2009 novel "The Selected Works Of T.S. Spivet" and Thomas H. Cook's crime tome "Red Leaves." It was assumed the former would go in front of cameras first, and indeed that is the case and few more details have arrived today about the project.

“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” is one of those highly anticipated films that feels like it's been on its way to theatres forever. With Gary Oldman’s performance being touted for Oscar, the film has already been playing in the U.K. to strong reviews and big box office. The Tomas Alfredson (“Let the Right One In”)-directed film begins its rollout December 9th, and now there’s a new clip from the film. ‘Tinker Tailor’ feels like a film that is very clip-resistant, and this one doesn’t give much away, but features some lovely cinematography, a few beautiful camera moves, and some thrillingly tense British politeness between Oldman and Colin Firth.

Close to fifty years after to her premature passing at the age of 36, there are few stars, living or dead, who have the same effect that Marilyn Monroe continues to have. An icon the likes of which the starlets of today simply can't compete with, her legacy continues to loom large, despite a relatively brief time on top (less than fifteen years passed between her first speaking role and her final picture, "The Misfits") and aided in no small part by her tumultuous personal life -- three troubled marriages, including to playwright Arthur Miller and baseball legend Joe Di Maggio, and reported affairs with both President John F. Kennedy and his brother Bobby.

If "The Expendables" meant anything (and, aside from some serviceable action sequences, it didn't really), it was a chance to see a group of action icons interacting with each other, with several scenes imbued with the baggage brought from the filmographies of all those involved. Come for the Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis, stay for the Gary Daniels! Sylvester Stallone and company have listened to the complaints, bringing back the entire cast for "The Expendables 2" and giving some of them more to do than to just sit around and chat.
