With Susanne Bier walking away with the Best Foreign Film Oscar on Sunday for "In A Better World," it looks like the helmer, like her fellow nominee Rachid Bouchareb, is following up her dark drama with something that has a lighter tone.

While he walked away empty handed at the Oscars on Sunday night, the nomination certainly put director Rachid Bouchareb on the map and, for those who have been following his career, recognition from the Academy seemed pretty much inevitable. His last few films have tackled some heavy topics including WWII ("Indigènes"), terror attacks ("London River") and the Algerian revolution (the Oscar-nominated "Outside the Law"). But for this next effort, Bouchareb is taking a decidedly lighter path.

It's strange to think that Gore Verbinski, an accomplished visual stylist who began in commercials (he was responsible for those "Bud-weis-er" talking bullfrog ads), would want to follow up the daunting and problem-plagued back-to-back shoots of the two latter 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movies with an animated film. Not only are animated films notoriously time-consuming and hard to crack, but this would be his first fully animated film and the debut feature film from Industrial Light & Magic, George Lucas' wizardly visual effects house. And this was supposed to be his "small" movie.

While the film itself turned out to be a bit of dud, French electro rockers Daft Punk walked away from "Tron: Legacy" with their reputations intact thanks to an ace score that was one of the best of the year. Well, that score is about to get tweaked in a big way.

Despite the reportedly rushed production -- and what the ramblings of way-too-invested nerds would have you have believe -- "X-Men: First Class" is still looking like the uh, classiest, of the crush of comic book movies set to hit in the next few months. We're not sure what it is -- the casting, the period setting -- but Matthew Vaughn's film is thankfully devoid of the dorky stink that surrounds its competitors.

Nicholas Hoult is rapidly cementing himself as hot property in tinseltown -- a path he began taking years ago as that kid along side Hugh Grant in "About A Boy."
