Sometimes when one door closes, another one opens. You might recall that back this spring "Homeland" star Diego Klattenhoff was reported to be taking a role in Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises." As these things sometimes go, the scheduling couldn't be worked out and he didn't wind up doing the film, but fall is here and the actor has bounced back with a part in another mega movie.

The geeks have spoken and Warner Bros. has listened. Remember last summer when Kevin Tancharoen (the guy who did the "Fame" remake that no one cared about and the "Glee" 3D concert movie no one went to go see (how is this dude still getting work?) directed a ridiculous po-faced "Mortal Kombat" promo trailer to try and get traction for a new full-length movie going? Well, apparently enough people with bad taste were impressed because Deadline reports that WB are getting a reboot of the video game movie going. Hooray.

Filmmaker Describes Why They Dropped The Original Title, 'I'm With Cancer' & How They Survived Losing Their Lead Actor 2 Weeks Before ShootingOur conversation with director Jonathan Levine first ran during the "50/50" world premiere at the recent Toronto International Film Festival, but we're worried it got lost in that crazy shuffle. With the film in theaters this weekend -- on 2,400 screens no less -- we thought we'd revisit the chat one more time.

Ben Affleck's 'Argo' To Follow 'The Town' Template, Will Open On September 14, 2012

It's probably safe to say that last year, Warner Bros. knew they had a good movie on their hands with "The Town," but that they didn't expect it would turn into a $150 million worldwide hit and Oscar contender. Riding high off positive notices at Venice and TIFF, "The Town" rolled into theaters just a few days after unspooling in Toronto and became a box office hit, and when it all ended, the movie made some considerable bank and even landed an Oscar nomination for Jeremy Renner. Not bad. Not messing with what worked last time, WB has dated "Argo," Ben Affleck's next directorial effort, for September 14, 2012, and it's likely they are hoping to carbon copy "The Town"'s success.

Ellen Page Will Be Alexander Skarsgård's Former Lover In ‘The East’

We'll say this for Ellen Page, she's not following anyone's playbook. After breaking out in a big way thanks to "Juno," the actress stuck it out (mostly) with smaller films, taking on roles in "Smart People," "Whip It" and "Peacock." Of course, you don't ignore the phone when Christopher Nolan comes calling, but while she starred in last year's "Inception," she followed it up with low-budget indie superhero spoof "Super." And after spending the summer tossing around bon mots with Woody Allen in Italy for "Bop Decameron," Page continues to seek out interesting work rather than just play the girlfriend/secretary/hipster in some studio rom-com.

Presumably, official "James Bond 23" news will be coming any day now since the movie is about a year away from hitting theaters, but until then rumors will continue to swirl.

Review: 'Sarah Palin: You Betcha!' Is A Surprisingly Toothless Bore

Nick Broomfield is a British documentarian with a reputation for being boldly unafraid to ruffle people’s feathers. In films like “Biggie & Tupac” and, most notoriously, “Kurt and Courtney,” he seemed unconcerned with the status quo (or possibly lawsuits), making inflammatory claims and taking part in gleeful provocation, a welcome change of pace from the overtly mannered realm of current documentary filmmaking. Which makes “Sarah Palin: You Betcha!,” his new film about America’s one-time potential Vice President and former Governor of Alaska, so odd – it’s boring, toothless, and genial. Anyone (like me) smacking their gums in anticipation of the pointed evisceration Palin would receive from the guy who not-so-subtly suggested Courtney Love engineered Kurt Cobain’s death is going to be sorely disappointed.

Ruh roh. Mark Wahlberg is getting pulled back into DA LIFE. If you ever wondered what a Liam Neeson thriller mashed up with your average Jason Statham movie -- with a much better cast -- would look like, here's "Contraband" to give you an idea.
