As we mentioned in a Where Have They Been? feature we ran a few months ago, dramatist Todd Field has been missing from the world of cinema since 2006's sardonic suburban drama, "Little Children."

It seems in the not-so-distant future, assholes still rule. Anyway, after dropping a wealth of footage at Comic-Con, it seems Fox wants to give away as much of this movie as possible before it hits theaters (reminiscent of their campaign for "X-Men: First Class"), so now barely one week later, we now have a trailer for the increasingly silly looking "In Time."

Jet Li Apparently Has Better Things To DoWith a director now in place in the shape of Simon West, the man behind “Con Air” and a bunch of movies that offered greatly diminished returns, and with a release date now set for just over a year from now, "The Expendables 2" will presumably start casting up hard soon, but the rumors continue to fly.

Director John Michael McDonagh Says The Film Is A Reaction Against The Works Of Mike Leigh & Ken Loach & More From The FilmmakersUsually, when a film's biggest stars decide to do press interviews together, there's a collective groan among the writers since time its sometimes even more of a challenge to interview two actors at once then individually. But pairing the two actors in "The Guard" together reveals that Brendan Gleeson and Don Cheadle's killer chemistry isn't just limited to what we see in the movie. Gleeson stars as Sergeant Gerry Boyle, a crusty, crass cop bored by life in County Galway. When murder and drugs infiltrate the small town, he has to work with visiting FBI agent Wendell Everett (Cheadle) to solve the case. Luckily, working together seemed far easier for Gleeson and Cheadle than it was for their at-odds on-screen counterparts. We've already covered our exclusive interview with Gleeson, but we wanted to share what we learned from this writer's entertaining afternoon chat with Gleeson, Cheadle, and their director John Michael McDonagh.

Really, Marvel? While fans extend the comic giant enough goodwill that the company could murder baby unicorns and get away with it, you have to admit, this is pretty lame.

Listen, I know what you expect from me. After last week's showing, you're expecting me to wax poetic about Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling and all the man beauty at the box office. Nope. What Chris Evans and I have is special and beautiful and I will not sully it with that cad, Ryan. I will leave that salivating to the male portion of the Playlist, as Mr. Gosling is the designated man crush. I don't need to build him up anymore than the rest of these dudes have. He's a great actor with a wonderful sense of personal style. THE END. All I will say about Mr. Craig is that I hope his bum is insured by Lloyd's of London for as much as J. Lo's booty. Anyway! In theaters this week! The improbably premised "Cowboys & Aliens"! Rom-com for men, "Crazy, Stupid Love"! "The Smurfs".... You know it's not a week without a dumb movie for children! Let's do it to it.

"I'd like to be for cinema what Shakespeare was for theatre, Marx for politics and Freud for psychology: someone after whom nothing is as it used to be,” German director Rainer Werner Fassbinder once declared, likely half-seriously, half facetiously.
