So, has Paul Thomas Anderson's "There Will Be Blood" found a double bill partner in Jean-Jacques Annaud’s forthcoming "Black Gold"? We'll know soon enough if the film will deliver the goods, but with a solid cast in front of the camera and a pretty interesting premise, the ingredients are there for something truly epic.

It's probably safe to say by this point that Jim Sheridan's "Dream House" with Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts is a bit of a mess. With the film delayed from a previously planned February release due to reshoots, it arrives next week in theaters with little fanfare. The trailer was released in the middle of the summer to little response, and pretty much gave up every twist in the movie, playing like a poor man's "Shutter Island." Meanwhile, CinemaBlend had reported that behind the scenes neither the director (who apparently had the movie taken away from him) nor the cast are pleased with the final result, which may be why there is a curious lack of press just ten days from its release. But just when you thought the minor-key saga of "Dream House" couldn't any weirder, there's this.

While it has been five years since Fox pulled the plug and "Arrested Development" went off the air, rumors of a potential movie have been rampant, but Hollywood (and series creator and writer Mitch Hurwitz) has so far been unable to wrangle everybody back together for one more story with the Bluth family. The monocle-wearing organizers of The New Yorker Festival, however have managed to do what no one else has been able to do since 2006: get the entire cast back together in one place at the same time.

Well, with Hilary Duff pregnant and $100,000 dollars richer for not starring in the ill-advised, upcoming remake-but-it's-not-a-remake “The Story of Bonnie and Clyde,” the producers have now found their replacement to take on the role that made Faye Dunaway a star: Lindsay Pulsipher. Wait, who?

Oscar-Winning Screenwriter Finds Herself Part Of 2 Movies At TIFFFor some reason, Diablo Cody seems to have the knives pointed at her more easily (and unfairly) than other screenwriters. Say what you will about the Oscar-winning pen behind "Juno," but her voice is unique and frankly we'd take a Cody project over something from overrated, middle-of-the-road scribes like Allan Loeb or Aline Brosh McKenna any day of the week. But it certainly reveals something about Cody's presence in Hollywood that she has found herself part of two movies that recently played TIFF and in one case she's not happy, while in the other it seems she's apparently less concerned.

Film Will Be Released After 2012 Election After a three-year break, Steven Spielberg is getting back to prolific form. He's got two movies due out before the end of the year, and is shortly to start shooting on a new one. Indeed, it's a film that he's been talking about for years, but never seemed to progress -- "Lincoln," his biopic of the great U.S. president Abraham Lincoln, which was long set to star Liam Neeson, but was announced earlier in the year as finally moving forward with Daniel Day-Lewis in the lead.

The best films aren't necessarily the ones you walk out of raving about, but the ones that haunt you, lingering on your mind for the days, weeks and months afterwards. When we saw "Shame," Steve McQueen's follow up to his debut "Hunger," which reteams the director with star Michael Fassbender, we liked it very, very much indeed, but had a few issues with it that perhaps stopped it from reaching the very top tier of films we saw in Venice.
