On paper, the idea of another visit to a "re-imagined" world of Peter Pan kind of bores us to death, but this casting is actually pretty amazing.

Breakout movie roles don't come as memorable -- or repulsive -- as Aaron Eckhart's slimy performance as Chad in Neil LaBute's "In The Company Of Men." It was a wickedly dark turn in a movie that itself was blackly hilarious that lead to two more collaborations between the writer/director: the excellent "Your Friends & Neighbors" and the far less successful "Possession." And then the two parted ways. Eckhart went on to become one of the top leading men and character actors in Hollywood, while LaBute fell into a bit of spiral directing a string of bad movies including, at the bottom of the barrel, "The Wicker Man" and "Lakeview Terrace." But almost a decade since they last worked together, it looks like the duo are ready to pick up again.

'Trust' Star Liana Libreto Also On BoardAaron Eckhart's transition from respected character actor into mainstream leading man has been a bumpy road. For every "The Dark Knight" there is an ill-conceived entry like the rom-com "No Reservations," and while it did solid box office ($180 million worldwide) "Battle: Los Angeles" was fucking terrible. But Eckhart isn't through kicking ass and taking names, and he's currently filming "Expatriate" and now has a former Bond girl on his tail.

Right now, it seems we know more about what won't be happening in Christopher Nolan's upcoming "The Dark Knight Rises" than what actually will be happening. The film won't be in 3D, won't feature the Riddler, will not feature a CGI Heath Ledger as the Joker, and now we can tell you you one more thing that won't be happening.

As much as we love to crap on the lazy attempts or woeful misfires, making a one-sheet is hard, the more subtle and complex the work, the more difficult it is to encapsulate the film into a poster. So it's rare when something works well, but when it does, the results are definitely rewarding.

Alien invasion season is officially underway, with the release today of "Skyline," the first of a string of similarly-themed sci-fi pictures set to roll out over the next few years, from "Super 8" to "Battleship." To no one's great surprise, it turns out to be no good at all (seriously, it was a film starring Eric Balfour. What were you expecting? ERIC BALFOUR!), but a trailer's debuted at Apple for a film that, at one stage, was suing "Skyline" for suspicious similarities in its set-up and design.
