A simple, effective, if slightly misleading poster has arrived for Kelly Reichardt's "Meek's Cutoff" but we'll forgive the misdirection just because the one sheet is quite nice.

Says There's No Financing Yet For 'Queen Of The Desert' While we'll have to wait and see if Werner Herzog can get the pieces together for his period epic "Queen Of The Desert" that currently has Naomi Watts circling to star, and which Herzog says doesn't have financing just yet, the director is hard at work on what should be yet another fascinating documentary.

The "is she? isn't she?" game of whether or not Saoirse Ronan will join "The Hobbit" continues. Last month, casting agent Ros Hubbard said that Ronan has been cast—or is intended to be cast—in “The Hobbit" saying, “[W]orking with Peter Jackson is like working with a family. So they’ll have a great time. Saoirse’s family will go too. Everyone is very close and very loving on those sorts of jobs. It’s not like typical studio movies at all.” Well, looks like it's still not official.

As fans of Lars Von Trier know, the provocative director is deathly afraid of flying, one of the key reasons he's never been to the United States. In fact, his preferred method of transportation has been his 1992 Dethleffs Advange, the mobile camper that he's driven a handful to times Cannes when he's premiered his films but alas, it is the end of an era.

Over 150 Titles Including 'The 400 Blows,' 'Breathless,' 'Seven Samurai,' 'La Strada' And MoreUpdate: Some very bad news for Netflix subscribers, apparently this Hulu Plus deal comes at a price. All Criterion titles will be removed from streaming through Netflix Instant by the end of 2011. Criterion says that Hulu seems a better fit for them because of the visibility they are being offered by the service (their own highlighted section, "Criterion" being searchable, etc.) but this writer thinks Netflix really dropped the ball in letting them go. If you can't imagine yourself paying $8 a month and still having to sit through commercials, you're about to have no choice in order to view these classics.
