The Master Joaquin Phoenix
After tracking the project over the last couple of years, and trying to keep up with its progress despite Paul Thomas Anderson's working methods, which usually keep details close to the chest, it's hard to believe that in the next six weeks "The Master" will play Venice and TIFF before hitting a theater near you. Soon, every inquisitive mind will know the secrets of Philip Seymour Hoffman's Lancaster Dodd, and to help peel back the curtain, 18 new images from the film have arrived.

Even though little has been heard from the film, upcoming baseball drama "Trouble with the Curve" will mark Clint Eastwood's first on-screen role since 2008's "Gran Torino." It will also be the first time since 1993's "In the Line of Fire" that he isn't directing himself. But he's got a trusted friend and collaborator behind the camera in Robert Lorenz -- making his directorial debut here -- who has worked as an assistant director to Eastwood on "Mystic River" and "Million Dollar Baby" and is partner with Clint at his shingle Malpaso Productions.

We can' t have been the only one that felt that Amy Adams got a little cheated at the Oscars a few years back. Melissa Leo is a wonderful actress, and was very good in "The Fighter," but she wasn't even in the Best Supporting Actress in that film, let alone among the nominees. That particular honor went to Adams, who was tremendous in David O. Russell's film, and if we'd had our way, it would have been her walking away with the statuette in February 2011, not Leo.

In an age with announcements for teasers of trailers for trailers, we have to say we're big fans of how Paul Thomas Anderson and The Weinstein Company are going about the campaign for their new film, "The Master." A brief clip/teaser arrived during Cannes, on the same day that footage from the film was screened on the Croisette, and now, unannounced in the middle of the night, a second teaser trailer has cropped up on YouTube, as noticed by Badass Digest, and it's pretty swell.

Jack Kerouac's "On the Road" has been heralded for decades: an important novel, a cultural signifier, a sociological landmark, a cracking good read. It's also been considered "unfilmable" -- but now Walter Salles ("The Motorcycle Diaries," "Dark Water") brings the novel to the screen, and "The Motorcycle Diaries" turns out to be a pretty good template for understanding how Salles has shot his adaptation. "On the Road," like 'Diaries,' is scenic and episodic, full of youth's passion but with a shade of the future yet to come dimming the brightness of its vision, as a charismatic young man travels with another young man, saying little but watching everything along the way.

The jury's still out on the potency of Garret Hedlund's star power. The actor proved reasonably charismatic in his earliest roles in "Troy," "Four Brothers" and the big-screen "Friday Night Lights," but made some questionable choices after that -- see, or rather don't, "Death Sentence" and "Eragon." Since then, the actor was picked out to lead tentpole "Tron: Legacy," but the film was rotten, and Hedlund was pretty bad in it, so he's not quite turned into the leading man that many picked him out as.

Amy Adams Is Going To 'Dark Places'

It was seven years ago that Amy Adams broke out in "Junebug" and she hasn't looked back since. Showing that she can move from drama to comedy to romance with ease, the actress has proven to be one of the most talented and versatile of her generation. Need evidence? Watch "The Fighter" and then "The Muppets." Or maybe here three Oscar nominations will be enough to convince you. At any rate, 2012 is shaping up to be banner year for Adams. "On The Road" premieres in Cannes next week, she's been busy lensing "Trouble With The Curve" alongside a guy named Clint Eastwood, later this year she'll be working with Spike Jonze on his untitled romance and then there's a movie called "The Master" you might have heard of opening this fall. And now, she's putting another project on the table.

As far as switcheroos go, director Spike Jonze can't really complain as his upcoming untitled effort has lost one hot young actress, only to be replaced by another.

When it came to our super-early Oscar predictions last year, we weren't too far off when it came to Best Picture, or even the lead acting categories. But Supporting Actor & Actress? That was something of a disaster. Ok, so we called Christopher Plummer's victory, but aside from that, we were way off.
