All in all, 2011 should be a pretty good year for Colin Farrell. The actor's been on the comeback trail in a big way in the last few years, leading with "In Bruges," and he's got no fewer than four films due for release in the coming year. We already know that one of them, William Monahan's "London Boulevard," is a stinker, but the other three, (Peter Weir's already-in-limited-release "The Way Back"; the horror-comedy "Fright Night" and the full-on-comedy "Horrible Bosses") are all promising to one degree or another, and it should cement the return of the once-troubled star to the A-list.

You wouldn't know it from this week's milquetoast Vince Vaughn/Kevin James comedy "The Dilemma," but director Ron Howard, of all people, is about to embark on one of the most ambitious projects Hollywood has ever seen: an adaptation of Stephen King's mammoth seven-book fantasy opus "The Dark Tower," which will stretch across three big-screen features, broken up by two TV series which will all feature the same cast. The scope of the adaptation alone is an impressive enough feat, if it's seen through, but when taking into account the bonkers, meta-fictional nature of the source material, it's hard not to impressed by Howard's cojones, even if we're unconvinced that he's got the skills to pull it off.

To some degree, it's no longer really a story when a big-name director decides to shoot a high-profile picture in 3D -- for the moment, at least, the format's becoming something of a standard for tentpoles, actioners and kids flicks, and it's arguably more significant when someone like Christopher Nolan kicks against the trend. Otherwise, everyone from Martin Scorsese to the guy who directed "Legion" are putting out films in three dimensions, and generally speaking, it's worth no more than a brief mention in a round up of other news. Generally.

The deathmatch of 2010’s holiday season has spilled into the New Year, with “True Grit” and “Little Fockers” matching wits for the top spot at the box office. As projected, the Coen Brothers' western finally surpassed the lowest-common-denominator sequel, but it remains close, and it’s hard to forecast a winner on either side.
