The cinema world in France is fairly close knit and so it comes as a bit of a surprise that veteran Daniel Auteuil has never worked with Guillaume Canet, a vanguard of the new breed. But that situation has now been rectified as the duo are pairing up for an Olympic equestrian drama "Jappeloup" --- and no, you're reading that wrong.

Yes, we know we perhaps pump up the cause of Bryan Cranston pretty hard around here, but how can you not get excited by an actor who is not only massively talented, but has also seemed to make a keen decision to do interesting projects? How can you look at a forthcoming lineup of films like this -- “Drive,” “Contagion,” “Red Tails,” “John Carter,” “Rock of Ages,” “Total Recall,” “Argo,” "World War Z" -- and not be impressed? But it looks like the very busy Cranston has another ace up his sleeve. If you thought Bryan Cranston couldn't get any more Cranston-ier, there's this.

When “Lars and the Real Girl” director Craig Gillespie was first tapped to direct the remake of ‘80s camp horror classic “Fright Night,” a collective WTF seemed to ring out from the film community at large. Of course, Gillespie also directed the studio comedy “Mr. Woodcock,” which has even less in common with 'Lars,' but word on the “Fright Night” remake has been generally favorable and clearly Lionsgate was impressed enough to offer Gillespie their highly anticipated adaptation of the literary/horror genre mash-up “Pride and Prejudice with Zombies.”

First, before we get this bit of news, we'll just address "The Help" for a moment. There have been quiet a few bloggers/writers/critics this week decrying the movie for being "racist" and frankly, that's the laziest most reactionary term you could throw at "The Help" or any movie really. It's a term that is so loaded that in this context is almost meaningless, but it's great way for a bunch of people to furrow their brows and pretend to be concerned while the rest of the year they easily overlook far more egregious depictions of race (or lack thereof) in mainstream films. Yes, "The Help" has its issues, but "racist"? Give it a rest.

Patrick Wilson has always been just on the cusp of great things, particularly after his fantastic breakout performance in "Little Children," but further acclaim has been just out of reach. Projects he has signed on to since -- ranging from the low key drama "Evening," the race baiter "Lakeview Terrance" and blockbuster fare like "The A-Team" and "Watchmen" -- just never quite made the grade, but coming off a massive hit this year with "Insidious" the actor has leapt straight into one of the most anticipated films of 2012.

We love Mark Romanek but dude, seriously, WTF. Granted, it was inevitable that after "Never Let Me Go" failed at the box office and dropped out of last year's awards race very early, the director would have to take on a studio gig to bring some sheen back to his name. In fact, earlier this year he had the chance to direct "The Wolverine" -- an exciting prospect to be sure -- but he turned it down. And given this development, we really wish he would've done the comic franchise instead.

Cancer. Funny right? Okay, so maybe the C-word doesn't exactly tickle your funny bone, at least not initially, but "50/50" will try find humor and heart in the deadly disease in this based-on-a-true story tale.
