It was way back in the fall of 2011 when the trailer for Jean-Jacques Annaud’s “Black Gold” was released, as the film started to hit the festival circuit. Now, in 2013, the epic film is finally seeing a release in North America with the brand new (and somewhat bland) title of “Day Of The Falcon.”

Who does he think he is? Woody Allen? It seems Terrence Malick is using his engimatic appeal and auteur status to basically get whoever the hell he wants for "Knight Of Cups." It seems that if you happen to be nearby where he's shooting, and you're a celebrity, you can get a part in the film. And another name has joined the ranks.

When Antonio Banderas and Pedro Almodovar unveiled "The Skin I Live In" in 2011, it marked their first collaboration in over twenty years, in a film that was excitingly new territory for both director and actor. We wondered how long it would be before the duo paired up again, and thankfully, the wait will be shorter than two decades.

Alex Pettyfer, star of failed franchise starter “I Am Number Four,” and Steven Soderbergh's upcoming "Magic Mike" has found a new starring role in the first English-language film from “Heartbreaker” helmer Pascal Chaumeil. “Diamond Dogs” is based on an Alan Watt novel that is described as a crime thriller. Pettyfer will play the son of a Nevada sheriff who makes a life-changing mistake, and his father is forced to cover it up. Casting is currently underway for the father and no start date has been set.

Memo to the Academy: Next year, you might want to get the writing staff of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" to write jokes for the show, because this nine-minute bit is funnier than anything that happened at the Oscars last night.

Since his death in 1973 there have been more than twenty actors to play Pablo Picasso on film and television (thank you, IMDb) including Brian Cox, Anthony Hopkins, and last year Marcial Di Fonzo Bo depicted the famous artist in Woody Allen's "Midnight In Paris." Next up will be arguably Spain's highest-profile actor, Antonio Banderas, in Carlos Saura's "33 Dias" ("33 Days").

For a while there, we were worried. There seemed to be a way too long stretch of time where Antonio Banderas looked like he might never rebound from what seemed to be a string of bad choices. While he was keeping the lights on with "Shrek" movies, he was starring in one movie after another that no saw/heard of. Remember "The Big Bang," "The Code," "Bordertown," or "Take The Lead"? Yeah, neither do we. But 2011 has been a return to form. He reteamed with Pedro Almodovar for the severely underrated "The Skin I Live In," starred in the epic "Black Gold" and next week, he appears in Steven Soderbergh's "Haywire." Now, he's eyeing a role that will definitely keep him in the spotlight.

Left in a strange kind of limbo, partly due to a delay in finding U.S. distribution, and therefore a large swathe of the Western audience to whom it rather panders, Jean-Jacques Annaud's period sand saga "Black Gold" makes an odd addition to a festival line-up.

On Monday night, AFI Fest Guest Artistic Director Pedro Almodovar presented his 1987 film “La Ley del Deseo” (“Law of Desire”), a dreamy, melodramatic noir about lust, jealousy and violence, starring Antonio Banderas, Carmen Maura and Eusebio Poncela. The presentation at Grauman’s Chinese Theater began with a series of clips from the past 25 years of films from El Deseo, the film company operated by Almodovar and his brother Agustin that has produced all of their films to date. During an entertaining Q and A with festival director Jacqueline Lyanga, Almodovar talked about the themes of his work, his influences, his working partnership with his brother and his longstanding relationships with actors. He also promised (and failed to deliver) on word that Antonio Banderas would "dance a tango almost naked for you."
