Plan Is For Allen Hughes To Direct The week leading up to Thanksgiving is always a quiet one, and this week was no exception -- there's been very little news to go round. So thank the god of movie blogs for Mark Wahlberg, who seems to have caused about 75% of all news stories this week. He's not in "The Crow!" He is in David O. Russell's "Uncharted!" He thought "The Happening" was a giant piece of shit too! And, even on Turkey Day itself, the artist formerly known as the leader of the Funky Bunch has come through, giving details of a new project he's circling to MTV.

"I wanted to make a film for children, one that they will show to their children and so on. Something like "Mary Poppins" or "Bambi" that survive generations, because they talk about fundamentals of human life." -- Andrei Konchalovsky on the red carpet for "The Nutcracker 3D"

In "Burlesque," the gaudy new movie musical, Christina Aguilera plays a buxom nobody from Iowa who comes to the big city in search of fame and money, although she's such a cipher that this might be the audience projecting motivation on a character that simply seems to glide through whole sequences, sometimes quite literally. After a painfully inept "looking for a job" montage that gives the term "workmanlike" a bad name, she comes across a squat building on Sunset Boulevard that promises "The Best View on the Sunset Strip - Without Any Windows." Inside, Alan Cumming, grabbing every second of screen time he has and devouring it carnivorously, informs our young ingenue that it's not a strip club and it's $20 admittance. She can barely part with the twenty but does so anyway. When she walks in she's offered quite the sight: Cher (or at least a Cher-like android) performing a song called "Welcome to Burlesque," while lithe young dancers in bustiers and knee-length socks purr around her.

An alternate poster for "Inception" has been revealed and well, it's pretty clear to see why it was an alternate. The stars remain figures in the distance as the cityscape curls up around them and really, it's not as striking as the official one sheets and character posters that got the thumbs up. But an interesting look at the creative process regardless.

Liam Neeson holding a gun on a blue tinted poster only means one thing: it's yet another vehicle for the thespian to show that if push comes to shove and somebody kidnaps his daughter or frames him for a crime he didn't commit or in this case, steals his identity, he is going to unleash some serious ass kicking on faceless enemies in a foreign land.

Shooting On 'Spider-Man' Starts In 2 WeeksBummer. Once the rising Emma Stone signed on for "Spider-Man" we sort of figured this would happen but held out a glimmer of hope that with "21 Jump Street" shooting early-ish next year (filming was pushed back slightly on the film), somehow she would be able to do both. But alas, Emma Stone will not be co-starring with Jonah Hill in "21 Jump Street."

Geeks love to champion films but it seems that this year, they either stayed away or couldn't convince anyone other than their Internet friends to go to the movies. "Kick-Ass" and "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" failed to set the box office on fire, but perhaps most deserving of mainstream appreciation and fanboy admiration, Matt Reeves' "Let Me In" was unfairly and unfortunately overlooked when it hit theaters last month.

Actor Confirms That Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci Are In Talks, Will Play His Father & Uncle If you'd told us at the beginning of the year that 2010 would see David O. Russell sign on to an adaptation of the Playstation videogame "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune," we'd have nodded politely, and then dismissed everything you had to say after that. But rumors emerged in the summer that Russell, fresh off his comeback film "The Fighter," was circling the project, and he finally signed on last month. Not long after, another crazy rumor surfaced -- that Russell had moved the globetrotting adventure, at least in part, to the world of New York antiques, and that he was seeking Mark Wahlberg, Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci to star in the film.

We have to admit, if it isn't Pixar (or maybe DreamWorks), we sort of don't pay attention to animated films, but in the past couple of days trailers have landed for "Mars Needs Moms" and "Hop" which might be of interest for parents looking to entertain their kids next spring.
