Right before “Butter” premiered at the Telluride Film Festival this past September, The Weinstein Company had ambitions that the film might become a dark horse Oscar contender, exciting the left-leaning Academy with its sharp digs at a Michele Bachmann/Sarah Palin-like character played by Jennifer Garner. Well, it’s November, and "Butter" wasn't quite an across the board hit at Telluride and Bachmann is now a non-factor in the Presidential race.

Given our reboot-happy culture, it was only a matter of time before long-running BBC science-fiction series "Doctor Who" got the movie treatment, despite the fact that it's still on the air, and gaining a bigger international audience than ever before. But this afternoon's news that David Yates (who directed half of the films in the mammoth "Harry Potter" franchise) is developing a big screen version still came as something of a surprise. And, with the announcement that it'll depart from established continuity, shunning recent stars like Matt Smith and David Tennant and starting afresh.

Of all the potential Oscar heavyhitters, none remains a more tantalizing X-factor than David Fincher's "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo." Based on a novel by Stieg Larsson beloved by literary enthusiasts and book clubs the nation over, it has a reasonably large chance of being a box office titan and a serious awards contender, even if nobody has seen it yet. But if there's one person that remains skeptical about the film's Oscar chances, it's Fincher himself. In this week's Entertainment Weekly cover story (partially excerpted online), he jokes that “There’s too much anal rape in this movie” to secure major nominations.

Chronicling the lives of four men deep in the throes of crisis, if "I Melt With You" proves anything, it's that these guys had great taste in music in college. Playing like a mixtape you made circa the early '90s, the soundtrack for the film spans fourteen tracks featuring some pretty solid selections.

When The Weinstein Company first picked up John Hillcoat's highly anticipated "The Wettest County" in Cannes this spring the plan at the time was to release the film before the end of the year, which gave the picture an awards season sheen. However, with the end of the year looming just six weeks away, and Harvey busily promoting "The Artist," "My Week With Marilyn" and "The Iron Lady" as his main contenders this fall, it quickly became apparent that "The Wettest County" was not in the cards for 2011. And alas, it now has a release date pegged for next spring, arriving on April 20, 2012.
