The path of British comedians and sitcom stars trying to make a break in Hollywood is strewn with corpses. For every “In the Loop” or “Shaun of the Dead”, there’s a “Guest House Paradiso” or “Lesbian Vampire Killers” lurking not far around the corner. The newest chancer is the “The Inbetweeners”, a sitcom that ran for three seasons on UK’s Channel Four to some acclaim and is now making the leap to the big screen later in the summer. The teaser trailer hit on the show’s Facebook page yesterday and though some are already rapturous about it, what appeal the film will have outside of its native country is up for debate.

Well there's a promising career gone swiftly down the drain, at least from an artist's standpoint. Deadline reports that Shane Acker, whose animated short film "9" was turned into a feature of the same name in 2009, has just signed on to direct a feature film based on the Thomas the Tank Engine toys we all grew up with. HIT Entertainment holds the rights to the toys and has decided to create a story around them for its first feature-length movie.

Currently in a tight neck-and-neck race with Roland Emmerich's "Anonymous" to be the stupidest movie of the fall, "The Three Musketeers," which sees "Resident Evil" director Paul W.S. Anderson cunningly reboot Alexandre Dumas' legendary characters for the 21st century by trying to make it look as much like "Resident Evil" as humanly possible, is looming on the release schedule. We've already seen one truly terrible trailer for the film, and now, with the film's October release date coming closer, Summit have released the first one-sheet for the film, via Yahoo.

DVD Release Planned For DecemberYou can bet Warner Bros. was hoping this issue would go away. Just in time for the film's theatrical release last month, tattoo artist S. Victor Whitmill filed a lawsuit seeking damages from the studio for replicating Mike Tyson's tattoo that he designed -- and claims he own's the copyright too -- without his permission. Whitmill sought to have the film barred from release while it was all sorted, and while he lost that battle, he may have won the war.

Roland Emmerich's 'Anonymous,' Gerald Butler Vehicle 'Playing The Field,' Space Actioner 'Lockout' All Shuffle DatesOf all the films to have gone before the cameras this year, Rian Johnson's "Looper" is one of our most anticipated. It's a mindbending, violent time travel thriller, with the best script to date from the man behind "Brick" and "The Brothers Bloom", and features a top-notch cast including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, Jeff Daniels and more. After a fierce bidding war, the project, now in post-production, was snapped up by FilmDistrict, who'll release the film through their deal with TriStar.

If you didn't see last year's "Cyrus" directed by Jay and Mark Duplass and starring Jonah Hill, do yourself a favor and catch up with it. Darkly funny and surprisingly moving it was a big leap forward for actor and directors alike and the trio are hoping to catch fire once again.

The idea of a sequel to "The Fighter" is a cute thought. One has to assume high of the success off the picture (some seven odd years in the making) producer/actor Mark Wahlberg and director David O. Russell -- who have worked together on three films so far, "Three Kings," "I Heart Huckabees" and the aforementioned pugilist picture -- were just shitcking ideas around in a celebratory fashion.
