Aussie Filmmaker Also Says He Knew Nothing About Project 'Once Were Cops' He Was Allegedly A Frontrunner ForExclusive: Aussie director David Michôd's "Animal Kingdom" is, if nothing else, one of the most exciting debut feature-length efforts of the year. The picture won the World Cinema Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and this intense crime family drama is loaded with slow-burning performances from several Australian up-and-comers including Ben Mendelsohn, Joel Edgerton, Jacki Weaver, Sullivan Stapleton and of course, the well known Guy Pearce.

OK, so Johnny Depp's spy movie thing "The Tourist" is kind of a disaster, but he'll still be able to sleep tonight on the bed of money he's making from the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise. With the fourth installment hitting next spring and another two reportedly in the works, he would never have to work on any other film if he didn't really want to. Anyway, some fresh images from "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" have arrived in advance of the trailer which will hit Monday, and they should take a bit of the sting out if you were unfortunate enough to catch an early screening of "The Tourist."

This a rumor that has been knocking around for a while and with filming now underway on Marc Webb's 3D reboot of "Spider-Man," we suppose it will be one of (if not the) last bit of casting to be put in place.

Actor Says He'd Consider A Role Like 'The Flash' If The Danish Filmmaker Was Directing; Has Discussed 'Wonder Woman' With Him TooEXCLUSIVE: We recently sat down and talked with Ryan Gosling about Derek Cianfrance's very-excellent and now R-Rated relationship drama “Blue Valentine,” and yes, of course our conversation veered off into other topics chiefly Gosling's upcoming collaboration with Danish filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn on the action drama, "Drive," co-starring Carey Mulligan. A big fan of the director's gnarly, twisted and previous works like the prison drama, "Bronson," or the near-psychedelic, meditative Viking actioner,"Valhalla Rising," Gosling told us himself that he had handpicked Refn to direct "Drive."

Make no mistake about it, the buff bod of Taylor Lautner is being groomed to be Hollywood's next action star. He recently wrapped the thriller "Abduction" directed by John Singleton, he's set to become "Stretch Armstrong" for Universal, and now a new pic that will allow him to go shirtless and flex his muscles is on the way.

While omnibus films tend to be a mixed bag, we keep going back to them because the talent always seems to promise great things, and in the case of the forthcoming "7 Days In Havana," that's no exception.

The Tourist
It's probably escaped your attention, as the film's essentially being buried by all involved, but the Angelina Jolie/Johnny Depp spy flick "The Tourist" hits theaters tomorrow. Early reviews have been poisonous (and we certainly were not impressed) but it's not entirely surprising -- the film's genre, that of the romantic espionage thriller, is not the easiest one to get right, requiring a fiendishly difficult juggling of tone.

So, apparently we've been a little too snarky lately and have been coming off like "haters," so here's a reversal: we're totally excited for Steve McQueen's next effort "Shame" which is being led by two of our favorite thesps, Michael Fassbender and the confirmed Carey Mulligan.
