With full credit taken for delivering the best Bond film in years with "Casino Royale," a gritty reboot (of sorts) of the franchise, director Martin Campbell flopped hard with his next two films. There was the misguided Mel Gibson thriller "Edge Of Darkness" (which this writer turned off halfway through) and then this summer's comic movie disaster, "Green Lantern." So what kind of movies do you get direct when you get locked up in director's jail? TV reboots.

You're gonna have a whole lotta Bradley Cooper coming at you in the near future. The actor, who had two big hits this year with "Limitless" and "The Hangover Part II," has spent the rest of 2011 cashing in on the goodwill those projects created, with no less than three movies going in front of cameras. Well, gird your loins, ladies, pics of him in two of the films have surfaced.

Well, she's funny, beautiful and a name that seems to be everywhere these days. So it's not exactly a big shock that Olivia Wilde beat out Michelle Monaghan, Judy Greer (our pick), Sarah Silverman (who was the final contender) and Jessica Biel for the female lead in upcoming magician comedy "Burt Wonderstone." But there's another great and unforgettable face joining as well.

With Eddie Murphy now threatening a comeback (well, a return to halfway decent material) with this weekend's "Tower Heist," he made the most of his interview with Rolling Stone to drop some nuggets of info about what he plans next. "Beverly Hills Cop 4" may be dead, but he wants to bring Axel Foley to the small screen, and in the print edition of the mag transcribed by Moviehole he's got an all black alien invasion flick he's writing. But let's hold up a second.

Paddy Considine's 'Tyrannosaur' Also Wins Seven Nods, 'Kevin' & 'Kill List' Close BehindWhen "Chariots of Fire" writer Colin Weiland announced on stage at the 1982 Oscars that "The British are coming!," it went on to live in infamy; the British failed to come, and the U.K. film industry continued on much as it had before. But if David Seidler or Tom Hooper had exclaimed the same at the Academy Awards this February, there might have been less egg on their face -- the victory, and huge box office success of "The King's Speech" has been a precursor to the best year for British film that we can remember.

Unless They Are Cut For Extended Shots Of Tree Branches Blowing In The WindIt's Halloween and it seems that today's treats are bits and bobs about Terrence Malick's next, untitled film (aka "The Burial"). First word cropped up that little known American Indian classical composer Jerod Tate would be providing the score. But in addition to the cast, which currently includes Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Rachel Weisz, Olga Kurylenko, Javier Bardem, Barry Pepper, Charles Baker and in a small role, Jessica Chastain, it looks two more stars popped up on the set that we didn't previously known about.
