Listen, we know. "The Muppets" marketing machine has been insane -- just look at the deluge of clips that have hit in the past week or so -- but dammit it all if these felt-covered creations don't keep melting our cold, cynical hearts each time they pop up on screen. With the release date looming, yet another trailer has arrived, and yes, it's charming, enjoyable, goofy and fun.

And the casting rollercoaster for the forever-developing "The Iceman" continues. At one time set to star the trio of James Franco, Benicio Del Toro and Michael Shannon, the first two actors have since moved on, and just a couple weeks ago the future of the project was being called into question. Well have no fear, Ross from "Friends" is here to save the day.

Oh yeah, remember how everyone was talking about Eddie Murphy staking out a career comeback thanks to his first halfway decent role in years, in Brett Ratner's "Tower Heist"? Well, here comes a crushing reminder that the formerly funny funnyman has been phoning it in for years, and will probably continue do so. Lest we forget, one of his upcoming project is "Hong Kong Phooey."

Cillian Murphy seems to be one of those actors whose mere presence can lift a film. He has been steadily working for years now, and continues to mix things up between smaller movies and bigger, popcorn fare such as "Tron: Legacy" and "Inception" after making a name for himself with "28 Days Later" and "Batman Begins."

Joshua Marston made waves back in 2004 with his drug-mule drama "Maria Full Grace" starring Catalina Sandino Moreno but only managed to return to the scene this year with the Albanian-set family drama "The Forgiveness Of Blood." Unfortunately for the director, the biggest headline maker wasn't the film itself but rather the fact it was disqualified from the Foreign Film Oscar race due to eligibility rules.

It's been something of a banner year, both critically and commercially, for British film, with the likes of "The Inbetweeners Movie" and "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" tearing it up at the box office at home, while pictures like "Kill List," "Attack the Block," "We Need To Talk About Kevin" and "Shame" have won acclaim from critics at home and abroad. But with the changes in the industry coming from the scrapping of national funding body the UK Film Council last summer starting to take effect, we're at something of a pivot point -- the last of the Film Council-funded features are starting to roll out, and it remains to be seen what kind of effect the move of funding to the British Film Institute will have.

'Notorious' & 'Faster' Director George Tillman Jr. To Helm 'Miles' Biopic About Miles Davis

Bad news for Don Cheadle? Last we heard the actor had a script completed for his own long developing dream project, a biopic on the legendary jazz artist Miles Davis. With support from the Davis estate and from the music labels that control the rights to his work, and with Herbie Hancock lined up to score the project, all Cheadle needed was financing for the movie that would see him direct and take on the role of the jazz icon. But almost a year has passed since that last update and word has gone disappointingly quiet. And now, another project, also backed by the Davis family may take the pole position in the race to bring the musician's life to the big screen.
