Like two drunken frat boys engaged in a pissing match for bragging rights, Universal and Relativity have been fighting it out over their competing Snow White movies both set to hit next year. In one corner, we have “Snow White and the Huntsman" with Chris Hemsworth as the huntsman, Charlize Theron set to play the evil queen, Kristen Stewart as Snow White, and “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” star Sam Clafin as the prince. In the other corner, we have Tarsem's untitled Snow White movie with Julia Roberts, Armie Hammer, Lily Collins, Nathan Lane and Robert Emms. Originally, Tarsem's film was set to be released on June 29, 2012, with Universal's picture coming arriving in December. But last week, Universal announced they were moving their film all the way up to June 1st and switching out their film with Judd Apatow's forthcoming "Knocked Up" spin off, which they bumped to the end of the year. But it looks like Relativity now has the last laugh.

"How I Met Your Mother" star Josh Radnor made his feature directing debut last year with "Happythankyoumoreplease." It wasn't very good. But for his sophomore feature, Radnor has already stepped up us his game. Earlier this year, and fresh out of the Sundance Film Festival, where she earned incredible buzz for her performance in "Martha Marcy May Marlene," Radnor landed Elizabeth Olsen as the star for "Liberal Arts," and now he's lined up another accomplished thesp who made an appearance in his first film.

Also Says Only One New Character Will Be IntroducedWith early reactions positioning Matthew Vaughn's anticipated and epic (yes, it runs just under 2 hours and 15 minutes) "X-Men: First Class" as a winner, sequel talk is already underway. While earlier reports have speculated whether or not the film will time jump to the '70s or '80s, it looks like Vaughn isn't ready to leave the '60s setting of his origin story film just yet and he's got a pretty bonkers idea on where to kick-off a followup to 'First Class.'

While some people think we're kind of no-fun movie lovers who prefer our films foreign and depressing, the truth is we could probably out quote anyone when it comes to either "Anchorman" or "Zoolander" any day of the week. But any hopes of seeing Ron Burgundy or Derek Zoolander again on the big screen lie at the table of the execs at Paramount. As we already know, the proposed musical sequel to "Anchorman" was rejected by the studio last summer as they felt the price tag for the film would have been too high. With that film now on the sidelines until somebody comes to their senses, attention has focused in on the gestating "Zoolander 2."

Entering on the fringes of punk and new wave scene, mining seemingly the entirety of pop history for his diverse array of work, and now settling into a late stage persona of a rocker that even your grandma could love, Elvis Costello has seemingly done it all. But the music legend continues to surprise and his latest move is one that we didn't anticipate.

If you've watched the three "Transporter" movies and "Taken," you know Luc Besson's formula well by now. A dude has a mission, some obstacles are put in his way, and he dispatches with them while remaining unflappable and deadly. It's a premise that has banked huge dollars at the global box office, so no surprise that Besson is sticking to it. But for the next film to come out of the Europa machine, the mega-producer is putting a new spin on a familiar story.

Bound to be less controversial than the casting of Lenny Kravitz last night in the role of Cinna, yet another actor has come aboard the unwieldy cast of "The Hunger Games."

Remember that film about The Beatles' label Apple Records produced by Liam Gallagher that won't feature any Beatles' characters or music? Yeah, neither did we but the outspoken former frontman of Oasis has now brought the project back into the media spotlight by revealing that he's eyeing Johnny Depp for the key role of journalist-writer-publicist Derek Taylor.

For a film by the brother of "In Bruges" director Martin McDonagh starring Brendon Gleeson, Don Cheadle, Mark Strong and Liam Cunningham, there's surprisingly been pretty much no talk about crime-comedy "The Guard," which debuted to mixed-to-positive reviews at this year's Sundance Film Festival.
