While J.J. Abrams proved you could hold back the steak at the monster movie BBQ and still bring in fans, when you're a much smaller-budgeted Brit alien invasion flick with even smaller names leading the cast, you gotta do whatever you can to get people out. So while some may whine that the new red band trailer for "Attack The Block" shows far too much, just remember they are trying to get people to see a movie that, outside of geek circles and those lucky enough to see the film already, nobody has ever heard of.

With Nick Cassavetes bailing on the gestating "Gotti: Three Generations" film to finish up his indie production "Yellow," if everything goes according to plan he'll likely be moving on to direct the Rick Ross biopic announced earlier this year. The film will tell the story of Ross' early days as a crack cocaine dealer in Los Angeles during the 1980s. Apparently, Ross was a major player slinging up to 100 kg of the stuff per day and he claims that he was supplied by Contras who were fighting the Nicaraguan government at the time; yep, those same Contras that were funded by officials in Ronald Reagan’s administration. And a man who is no stranger to "the game" will be tuning up the movie.

Simon West Keeps Failing Upwards, Now Directing 'The Expendables 2'

If you were to draw up a list of the ten worst directors currently working in Hollywood, you'd have to save space for Simon West, who came out swinging with the botched delirium of sub-Bay actioner "Con Air" and has only gone downhill from there. West's films are cacophonous noise tunnels where the human spirit is unwelcome, where cynicism and craven stupidity triumph over creativity and ingenuity. Each one of his films has either a ripe premise, a great cast, or a too-big budget, only to be squandered by his narrow vision and neanderthal caveman storytelling. Yet somehow, Sylvester Stallone, who normally has an ear for his dyed-in-the-wool fans on the internet, has picked Simon West to helm "The Expendables 2."

After beating the odds and winning the Oscar for Achievement in Directing last year, Tom Hooper has set his sights on quite a gigantic project. Hooper has never shied away from complicated, big-budget projects including HBO's "John Adams" miniseries and last year's Oscar triumph "The King's Speech," so the fact that he's moving forward with a film adaptation of "Les Miserables" for Universal is no surprise. We were surprised, however at just how fast the project is steaming ahead with Variety reporting today that Hugh Jackman is in talks for what we presume to be the lead role of Jean Valjean.

Few real estate decisions have rankled citizens and elected officials as much as the Atlantic Yards program. Spearheaded by Forest City Ratner and its founder Bruce Ratner, the program was dedicated to invoking eminent domain on a small residential area in Brooklyn, supplanting the residents in place in order to allow Ratner to build a new basketball arena and add sixteen skyscrapers to the area, which apparently already featured Ratner architecture. In other words, a Bruce Ratner theme park, the horrorshow foreshadowed by the new documentary "Battle For Brooklyn."

Winner of the Palme d'Or and perhaps the most talked about movie of the year so far, Terrence Malick's "The Tree Of Life" continues its slow roll out across the country with a bunch of new cities getting the film this weekend (click here to see if its arriving in your town). And in order to keep the momentum going behind the film, Fox Searchlight continues their finely tuned marketing campaign with perhaps the most intriguing look at the movie yet.

After a period where it looked as if Fox would take a mulligan on "The Wolverine" and bump the film to 2013 or beyond, it now looks like they've found their director. James Mangold, who has dabbled in various genres from musical biopic ("Walk The Line"), to western ("3:10 To Yuma") and horror ("Identity"), is prepared to take on his first comic book adaptation, and the announcement suggests he's the mutual pick from Fox and Hugh Jackman's camp. Mangold appears to be the top choice among an uninspired trio of potential helmers that included Antoine Fuqua and Gavin O'Connor, otherwise known as Guys You Employ When They Are Represented By The Same Agency As Someone You Want To Work With.
