Yes, we're still eighteen months away from "The Hobbit" hitting theaters but the fever for the films directed by Peter Jackson is already running very high. Last week, fans got a very early treat when the first official stills from the film hit the web and it looks like the filmmakers aren't being shy about showing off a little bit more.

She must have been playing her cards close to the chest. Just a week after teasing her filmmaking ambitions, screenwriter Diablo Cody ("Juno," "Jennifer's Body") has unveiled what will become her debut directorial effort. A self-penned comedy called, "Lamb Of God," the picture will follow a young conservative religious woman who loses her faith after a plane crash, decides to go to Las Vegas to live the life of a sinner, and on her journey finds her way back to her faith according to a press release.

After proving he could wield the mighty hammer of "Thor" with wit and charm to spare (one of the few lively things in the otherwise kind of stodgy comic movie), Chris Hemsworth is springboarding into other films. He's got "Snow White And The Huntsman" on his dance card, a couple of completed movies waiting to be released ("Red Dawn," "Cabin In The Woods") and of course, he's already on to his next Marvel gig in "The Avengers" but it looks like he's stepping out of the fantasy/remake realm for his next role.

It was just a couple of weeks ago when director Catherine Hardwicke hinted at her next movie saying, “I have another project that looks like it’s going to go first. It’s in Sweden and Germany, and it’s really wild. I can’t quite talk about it, but we’ll probably do the announcement in a couple of weeks." Well, right on schedule, that news has arrived.

For a moment there, it looked like the highly anticipated "The Wolverine" was in a spot of trouble. The devastating earthquakes in Japan scratched plans for location shooting and then abrupt departure of Darren Aronofsky added further woes to the film that seemed to be moving full steam ahead with fan approved adaptation of Chris Claremont and Frank Miller‘s extremely dark, bloody and intense 1982 limited series with a screenplay written by Christopher McQuarrie. But earlier this month, new life was kicked back in. James Mangold ("3:10 To Yuma," "Knight & Day") stepped into the hot seat and it looks like the film will get rolling this fall.

Will Hit Theaters On May 17, 2013Roland Emmerich and Shakespeare? That's the question that nearly brought a nation to its knees when it was announced that Emmerich was temporarily putting his pyro gear aside (sort of) and focusing on the conspiracy theory that the Bard didn't really write all those plays. Shocking stuff, we know. And while the trailer for "Anonymous" still showed he can't go through a full movie without at least a few 'splosions, it looks like he wants to go back to delivering them wholesale.

Generally, we don't do the set photo thing, but this is of Robert Pattinson getting a pie in the face so exceptions must be made. Especially when Robert Pattinson News has dug up the video.

With "Transformers: The Dark Of The Moon" set to rape your eyeballs and eardrums this long holiday weekend, it looks like if the franchise wants to continue, it may have to do so without two of its key elements thus far.

Looks like Harvey Weinstein has an embarrassment of Oscar riches this year. Just a couple weeks after The Weinstein Company peppered the awards season slate with release dates for "The Iron Lady," "Coriolanus," "My Week with Marilyn" and "The Artist" he's throwing one more potential contender into the mix.

As you already know by now, not a week can go by without David O. Russell attaching his name to one project or another, but we generally hear not much beyond that so color us surprised that there is a bit of news on "The Mission," a film he put his name to a couple of weeks ago.
