As we head into October, the Oscar race is still pretty wide open, but after a few frontrunners have emerged, and contending right alongside "Life Of Pi" and "Silver Linings Playbook" as big pieces of entertainment offering a little bit more as well, is Ben Affleck's "Argo."

While Elijah Wood could just sit back and count his Frodo money on an island somewhere, the actor is using that success to try different things, even if they don't always work out (we're looking at you "The Oxford Murders"). He's taken a strong indie route, lending his talents to a variety of movies including the rom-com "Celeste & Jesse Forever," the absurd comedy "Revenge For Jolly!," the horror remake "Maniac" and more. But perhaps one of his more succesful ventures has been on the small screen with FX series "Wilfred" and he's hoping he can bring that magic to the big screen.

Released on September 18th, we're a little bit behind the eight ball on "The End Of Watch" soundtrack. However, thanks to LoudWire, we've come across an additional extra musical tidbit which is arguably more interesting than the original release. While the soundtrack disc itself features an original score composed by David Sardy ("Zombieland," "21"), a classic track from Public Enemy ("Harder Than You Think")  and cuts by the Latin Rascals and The Delfonics, the iTunes release features an extra original new song from Queens of The Stone Age Frontman Josh Homme.

While he spent his time since "Let Me In" amassing a number of potential projects including the sci-fi "8 O'Clock In The Morning," the Frankenstein feature "This Dark Endeavor," and the vampire flick "The Passage" -- not to mention he has his dream project "The Invisible Woman" somewhere brewing -- nothing really got rolling for Matt Reeves. But he's now lined up a big studio tentpole and we'd guess if he knocks it out of the park, many of those other movies might pick up more steam.

Long before 3D, digital effects, RED cameras and whatever other tech gizmos Ridley Scott played with for "Prometheus," there was his original "Alien." A much more lo-fi production by today's standards, the movie still thrilled with its H.R. Giger designed creatures and unrelenting sense of dread. And while you wait for the mailman to drop "Prometheus" in your mailbox next week, here's a bit of a trip back in time.

Rick Baker is one of those guys whose work is so consistently brilliant you kind of forget how awesome he is. As the make-up designer and creature creator behind everything from the dancing zombies in Michael Jackson's "Thriller" music video to Martin Landau's Bela Lugosi make-up in Tim Burton's "Ed Wood" (which won him his third – of seven – Academy Awards) to Robert Downey, Jr.'s black-face in "Tropic Thunder," Baker is a living legend, able to conjure all sorts of creatures and characters solely from his fertile imagination. What's so startling about the footage of Baker dug up from an early '80s CBS special on monsters (this was at the peak of horror's cultural resurgence -- via Reddit), is how in command of his craft Baker seems to be at such a young age.

You would think that getting a ready-and-willing Lizzy Caplan into your bed and then not being able to get it up would be embarrassing enough, but what happens if a video of that encounter goes viral? That's the question at the heart of the upcoming indie comedy "3, 2, 1...Frankie Go Boom" and a red band trailer has dropped to give you taste of just how bad things get.

Mark Webber is likable -- our kind of guy. His acting career is full of interesting, offbeat independent productions and challenging little roles ("Broken Flowers," "The Hottest State," "Dear Wendy" and of course, a bit more mainstream, "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World"). But the 32-year-old actor is also trying to tell his own stories and in recent years has evolved into a director/screenwriter as well, starting off with 2009's "Explicit Ills." His sophomore directorial effort looks like another small and intimate, personal work called "The End Of Love." It also boasts a meta aspect and stars himself as an actor named Mark and his real-life two-year-old son Issac. Here's the synopsis:
