Kellan Lutz The Tenth Level
Kellan Lutz! Emmett Cullen from "Twilight" has arguably maintained a better movie career than Taylor Lautner, which we wouldn't really have guessed back at the height of Twihard mania. He's managed to star in a string of indies, was even given a shot at his own sorta tentpole with "The Legend Of Hercules," and — God bless his agent — he has a role in this summer's "The Expendables 3." And now, in a move we can only call Lutz-ian at this point, he'll be playing William Shatner because of course he is.

Whether audiences have wanted it or not, the Beat Generation has come storming back to the movies in the past year. Though focusing on different portions of their lives, both "On the Road" and "Kill Your Darlings" reveled in the freedom of jazz, the heady highs of drugs and the pursuit of pure experience this band of writers strove for. The films embraced the myth of its subjects, detailing the incidents, pains and pleasures that turned them into a force that would define an era. But what happens when those dreams of a transformed America don't pan out? What are you left with when the poetry on the page cannot overcome your own uncertainty? These are questions that face Jack Kerouac in Michael Polish's adaptation of "Big Sur," a film about the Beats that refuses nostalgia and easy answers, and is a much more fascinating, satisfying picture than its competition as a result.

Billions of dollars flood the Walt Disney Company every year, thanks to the toys, videogames, DVDs, clothing, gummy vitamins and bed sheets associated with their "Cars" franchise. What originated as a single Pixar movie (2006's "Cars") has expanded beyond the sequel (2011's "Cars 2") and short films and "land" at the Disney California Adventure theme park (whose signature ride, Radiator Springs Racers, is one of the most impressive attractions in the whole Disneyland complex). It's now it's own universe, one with just as many spin-off and sequel possibilities as such high profile Disney modules as "Star Wars" or Marvel. This is made very clear in "Planes" mere seconds after the shimmery Disney castle disappears and an odd title card emerges, before anything else, that reads, simply: "World of 'Cars,'" which, depending on your age and demographic, is either a promise or a warning. Either way, "Planes" is just the beginning. Buckle up.
