Serena
Shot before "American Hustle," but still unreleased, a big question mark remains stamped on Susanne Bier's "Serena" starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. We know that Steven Soderbergh watched some version of it in 2013, but since the first image dropped in 2012, there has been pretty much total silence. Late last year, reports surfaced that the movie had been quietly screening for distributors, but it says something that months later, there has been no official deal announced, even though heavyweights like The Weinstein Company and Fox Searchlight has been circling. So, is it a troubled production or just a director trying to get it right?

Like yelling "fire!" in a crowded theatre, when word dropped late last night that Disney was weighing the option of rebooting "Indiana Jones," with Bradley Cooper on a wishlist somewhere of dudes to take over the hat and whip, the internet collectively exploded. Most were upset that anybody but Harrison Ford might play the title role, admonishing the studio for effectively crapping on a classic franchise. Twenty-four hours later, it seems the truth of those claims are being debated.

American Hustle
The last word we heard on "Indiana Jones 5" wasn't so good, at least for those hoping Disney would crack the whip on a sequel sooner rather than later. In December, studio chairman Alan Horn said quite plainly, "We haven’t done anything. We don’t have a story. We need a story.” But if these latest rumors are right, between then and now, something has changed.

American Hustle
The ballot boxes are now closed on Oscar voting, and the fate of months worth of interviews, photo shoots, promo, publicity and more rest in the hands of those dudes from PricewaterhouseCoopers who oversee the count that determines who gets a shiny new paperweight, and who doesn't. And David O. Russell's "American Hustle" is in the mix in a big way with 10 Oscar nominations. So what can you do until Sunday night?

Bradley Cooper is nominated for a Best Supporting Oscar this year for his work on “American Hustle.” Sometime later this year, he should probably star in “American Sniper,” a project he’s spearheading as producer with Clint Eastwood directing, and there’s one more 'American' film to come.

Guardians Of The Galaxy
The first trailer for "Guardians Of Galaxy" dropped on Monday night, and for the most part, fans were hugely enthusiastic about James Gunn's film, vibing with the winking tone of the superhero flick. But there was one major thing missing from its first promo: voices. Outside of Chris Pratt's Star-Lord, we didn't really hear anything out of the rest of the (mostly CGI enhanced) cast. Well, that's about to change.

American Hustle Robert De Niro
"De Niro is extremely meticulous when he's really passionate about something and we had endless conversations," director David O. Russell said last fall at a press conference for "American Hustle." "He loved the fact that this man [Victor Tellegio] spoke Arabic—which happens to be one of the true things in the story. Truth is crazier than fiction, but there was a mobster who spoke Arabic... He was really into meticulously constructing this guy. He wanted to do something he'd never done before." And the result is one of the most memorable moments in the film.

Guardians Of The Galaxy
So, a superhero movie with a raccoon and talking tree among the team, many have said (including us) that "Guardians Of The Galaxy" represents the biggest roll of the dice Marvel has taken to date. Just don't tell that to director James Gunn. "I don't think it's the riskiest Marvel property," he told Total Film. "I think 'Iron Man' was by far the riskiest. It was a film company that didn't have much, raising money to make a film based on a property that wasn't that much more well known than 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' So I think it's not even close to the riskiest Marvel property." Of course, Tony Stark now has three standalone movies to his name and the question is, can 'Guardians' reach that level of success?
