As you might recall, a couple of months ago a whole batch of names -- including Alice Eve, Diane Kruger and Rosamund Pike -- were tipped as candidates for a mysterious female lead role that was not Lois Lane in Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel." Well, word quickly dropped off -- and while guesses ranged from Ursa to Cat Grant for the mysterious part, Team Nolan seems to have closed the lid on that early leak. Or have they?

First Look At Takashi Miike's 'Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai'Cannes is basically Comic-Con for movie nerds, and so in the coming weeks, we'll be treating each image or morsel of info of the films playing there with the same weight as new toys for "Transformers" or covers for limited edition runs of Captain America that more genre-oriented sites might do.

It's like fairy tale movies for auteurs. Or something like that. "Margin Call" is coming, and just last night, George Clooney announced his own film about the 2008 bailout but before both of those, we'll get Curtis Hanson's take on the subject with "Too Big To Fail."

There's a certain stigma attached to period pieces; a preconceived notion that the film at hand will be elegant, beautiful, and excessively boring. Of course, a stereotype doesn't just come from anywhere, and those that decide to judge a movie by its poster may not be so far off in their hasty dismissal.

The National Youth Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company actor -- and player in the the Brit series "Life Bites" -- was handpicked last year by Steven Spielberg to star in his upcoming WWI drama "War Horse" and now it looks like the actor is ready to take on one of the giants of literature with veteran Brit thesp possibly joining him.

Jean-Luc and Pierre Dardenne are Cannes Film Festival veterans and favorites. Ever since "Rosetta" took the Palme d'Or in 1999, all their films since have not only played in competition at Cannes, they've also won prizes -- that's right, they have two Palme d'Or, one Ecumenical and one screenplay prize from Cannes. Not too shabby. Well, they're back on the Croisette this year and if we were betting men, we'd put money down on them walking away with something.
