"I guarantee, if you’re a Smurf fan and you see this movie, you’ll see the Smurfs that you grew up with and you’ll see The Smurfs movie that you want," "The Smurfs" auteur Raja Gosnell ("Big Momma's House," "Scooby-Doo," "Beverly Hills Chihuahua") said on the eve of the hybrid live-action/CGI feature's release last year. And while that remains to be seen, since no one we know actually saw "The Smurfs," clearly it was the Smurfs movie for many audiences, as the picture went on to gross a whopping $563 million worldwide. Clearly nostalgia aimed at parents -- with kids that will like the picture regardless of whether they grew up with it or not -- should never be underestimated.

“Mother’s Day” - wasn’t that a horror film that came out recently starring Rebecca De Mornay and Jaime King? You know, it was a remake of that '80s video nasty which featured graphic scenes of rape, violence and murder. What’s that...this is a different “Mother’s Day”...a drama that tells a series of loosely interconnected stories over the course of a day when greeting cards are exchanged. Oh, great.

In this edition of casting round-up, we have two very different films -- one’s a touching and inspiring story set in the contemporary Australian inner-city and the other is a biopic that’s been disavowed by the subject’s estate.

Looks like some actors who should be and deserve to be doing much better things are going to buy themselves a nice vacation or perhaps put a down payment on a second or third house, as they've lined up roles in the inevitable "The Smurfs 2."

If the graphic violence, giant rats, and seizure-inducing imagery of “Cosmopolis” dissuaded you from the film's otherwise compelling look at sex and politics, then perhaps Robert Pattinson's period drama “Bel Ami” is more up your alley. A new clip and soundtrack details have hit the web, and they both certainly share some similarities, believe it or not.

Well, U.K. RPatz fans have already had their chance to swoon at the actor getting all period-drama on them, and now it's America's turn. A new trailer for "Bel Ami" has landed, showing the hunky vampire suck the cash and dignity out of a bunch of women in old timey England.

From behind, we watch a man in ragged clothes look longingly through the window of a fancy Belle Epoque Parisian restaurant. Inside, richly attired women whisper secrets over brimful glasses of champagne and decadent platters laden with food. Later, the hungry man in his mean garret relives the moment, jealousy and bitterness at the injustice of his situation playing across his face, before the memory of such opulence actually makes him cry. It's a convincing, well-observed moment that sets up a lot of what we need to know about the man's character. Oh wait, did we mention the man is played by Robert Pattinson?

The next twelve months will be something of a pivot point for Robert Pattinson, as by this time next year, the "Twilight" series, which made his name, will be over, and the risk of him becoming a vampiric version of Mark Hamill -- never able to escape the shadow of his mega franchise -- will start to come up; while he's had a few modest successes, none have been massive, or particularly critically acclaimed. But the actor is clearly taking advice from the right people, with two indie films on the way with some pretty high pedigree, the second of which, David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" is one of our most anticipated films of 2012.

How do you shake off the grime from starring in the tween girl franchise sensation "Eclipse"? If you're Robert Pattinson, you go and star in a period drama based on a book by Guy de Maupassant.
