There is no denying that Anna Kendrick has ascended into the top ranks of young actresses in Hollywood. Already a staple of the "Twilight" franchise, outside the vampires-and-werewolves films she has quickly established herself as a strong supporting player in "Up In The Air," "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" and the forthcoming cancer dramedy "50/50." But that's not all, next year she already has two projects that couldn't be more different, with David Ayer's police pic "End Of Watch" and the ensemble comedy "What To Expect When You're Expecting" on her calendar. But the actress is ready to step into a leading lady role, and her first shot may some require some singing as well.

James Cameron memorably imparted a distasteful analogy when he was doing the press rounds for “Avatar” and journalists would ask what the filmmaker-cum-megalomaniac’s next project would be. “You don't ask a woman if she wants to have more kids when she's crowning.” snapped the tousled-haired millionaire. As unpleasant as the image of Jim Cameron splayed on a doctor’s table waiting for his gold-plated “baby” to drop from his loins undoubtedly is, it’s an appropriate metaphor for another trend that’s crowning for real: bland self-help non-fiction books nonsensically translated into fiction films. To wit: “He’s Just Not That Into You”, “Marley & Me”, “Yes Man” and now the stupidest one yet, “What to Expect When You’re Expecting”, a fictional adaptation of the perennially popular series of books penned by Heidi Murkoff and Sharon Mazel that guide men and women who are -- duh -- expecting to bring a child into the world in the near future.

Natalie Martinez Also Joins The CastDavid Ayer has found a very comfortable and kind of boring niche: cop dramas. Having penned "Training Day," "Dark Blue" and "S.W.A.T." as well as directed "Harsh Times" and "Street Kings" his oeuvre is somewhat...predictable. So while we're kind of excited his next boys in blue movie "End Of Watch" stars solid dudes like Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena, we're also wary. But it's continuing to attract strong talent.

We have to be honest, when we first heard of "Rapture-Paloooza," a title that is being developed as part of Lionsgate's new micro-budgeted genre film division, we didn't think much of it. But studios are now wetting themselves over the possible gains to be made with no-budget fare as they watch "Insidious" getting ready to clear about $90 million worldwide on a $1.5 million budget. And these movies are attracting better-than-usual talent who are likely hoping to make some decent back end coin if the film becomes a hit.

Terminal illness and comedy: not always the easiest combination to market. While a film like "Terms of Endearment" was a colossal success, that was a quarter of a century ago, and a more recent example like "Funny People" showed how even the seemingly unstoppable pairing of Judd Apatow and Adam Sandler could come unstuck at the box office when death is on the agenda.
