While we weep for Jesse Pinkman, held captive by Breaking Todd and forced to keep cooking meth, the actor himself, Aaron Paul, is now making a move to the big leagues. He's toplining his first major movie and potential franchise to boot, with "Need For Speed." And we love you man, but we wish this looked better...

While James Bond fans around the world patiently wait for the followup to "Skyfall," and for Sam Mendes to make up his mind already, a brief reprieve will arrive with "Fleming," a new Brit TV mini-series biopic on the famed creator of the international lothario and spy. And a new teaser trailer is here to give you a little sampling.

"Dead Man Down," the new revenge movie that marks the domestic debut of Niels Arden Oplev, the Norwegian director behind the original Swedish version of "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," doesn't have an extended title sequence. There are a couple of names of production companies and then the title and that's it. This is sort of strange, especially considering its impressive cast, which includes Colin Farrell, Noomi Rapace, Isabelle Huppert and Terrence Howard. But everything about "Dead Man Down" is designed to catch you off guard, and most of the time it totally works, effortlessly mixing B-movie aesthetics with deeply contemplative European artiness. The result is a movie that is genuinely, totally unexpected.

Naturally, with “Skyfall” having established itself thoroughly in the upper echelon of Bond films -- not to mention also raking in a boatload of box-office for its trouble -- a project that takes a nostalgic look backward at the franchise’s legacy has risen in relevance and could prove an entertaining journey as well. Beyond Craig, Connery, and Moore sits the brilliant man behind the creation, and now a new project brewing on U.K. TV has a spotlight set to shine right in that direction.

Now that Sacha Gervasi has "Hitchcock" ready for theaters this week, what will the director do next? "The Jennifer Aniston-Russell Crowe project," he teased when talking to The Playlist this weekend. "The Jennifer Aniston-Love Hewitt/Brad Pitt project. It's all in claymation. Is that weird? And it's underwater."

It's election night, but dammit, franchises need to be cast. And before we all sit in front of the TV/internet clutching our stomachs nervously, hoping that we never hear the words "hanging chads," the upcoming "Need For Speed" has added one more name to the cast.

How are studios making their decisions these days? Very, very carefully. That's certainly true over at Warner Bros. who this year alone have iced "Akira," are moving very tentatively on "Arthur & Lancelot" (which seems to be on hold), passed on the sprawling "The Dark Tower" and let go of "The Imitation Game." And now they are sending a hit musical packing as well. Jon Favreau's "Jersey Boys" has been put into turnaround.

From the reels of Marvel’s biggest franchises, Nick Fury and Howard Stark are joining forces in a film together! Only, it’s not actually a Marvel flick teaming up two of its side characters, it’s just Samuel L. Jackson and Dominic Cooper moving away from big budget superhero films and taking more low-key roles in the upcoming independent drama “Reasonable Doubt” (which was once known as “The Good Samaritan” but probably changed so as not be confused with Jackson's recent "The Samaritan").
