Granted, this is a little thin and it could ultimately mean pretty much nothing, but considering the plot details for "The Dark Knight Rises" will likely be under lock and key for a while yet, we'll take what we can get.

Mark Wahlberg must be feeling pretty good this week. After shepherding the project for years, his boxing pic "The Fighter" walked away from Sunday night's Oscars with two major awards under its belt with Christian Bale and Melissa Leo winning Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress respectively. At the box office, the film has been a powerhouse as well, quietly marching to over $100 million worldwide and so, no surprise, Wahlberg is beginning to ruminate on a possible sequel.

Audiences seem to be cooling on wig-wearing, "I'll-do-anything-just-send-me-a-script" Nicolas Cage. His medieval flick "Season Of The Witch" opened at number three, and over the weekend, "Drive Angry 3D" arrived with an empty tank opening way down the list at number nine. But Cage, for whatever it's worth, is still a name that gets lower-budgeted action fare moving and certainly dinosaur bones and castles don't pay for themselves. Just before the end of the year, Cage signed on to the thriller "Medallion," and things are still moving forward on the project despite his dodgy box office prospects these days.

Those of you waiting for a theatrical release of Quentin Dupieux’s killer tire flick “Rubber,” will be able to scratch that itch in about a month. For those too impatient, the film is currently playing on Video On Demand. The gonzo film directed by Dupieux also known as Mr. Oizo, the French electro musician who also provides the score, has been making the rounds at festivals from Cannes to Fantastic Fest and picking up mostly positive reviews. We were pretty impressed with the trailer so our fingers are crossed that it is the definitive killer tire movie of our generation. With the film now out on VOD and the theatrical date just around the corner, the distributor Magnet has just released a new poster for the film which you can see below.

The Roman statesman Cato The Elder, when asked about his legacy, responded "I would like the world to say 'why didn't they put up a statue to him?' rather than 'why did they put up a statue to him?'" "The King's Speech" director Tom Hooper now doesn't have the option, having beaten David Fincher, and the predictions of most Oscar prognosticators, and won the Best Director prize at Sunday's Academy Awards. Now, the young director, on only his third film, has to pick his follow-up without disappointing those invested in him.

"What I really want to do is direct," might as well be the adage that every screenwriter in Hollywood not so secretly clings to at night when they brush their teeth before bed and daydream of their Academy acceptance speech.
