There was a lot to talk about after the first trailer for Wes Anderson's "Grand Budapest Hotel" dropped earlier this fall. In fact, we did a fairly obsessive and thorough trailer breakdown, that noted, among other things, that the film is shot in three different aspect ratios and is (mostly) set in the 1930s. But there is still much to be unwrapped from the film, so consider this an early Christmas present.

Watch: Edward Norton Has An Interesting 48 Hours In Ad For Verizon

This is fun. Granted, it's a phone advert, so, you know, Ed Norton is a corporate shill, but hey, Joss Whedon ain't answering those calls, and I am Jack's mortgage that needs paying. Read More »

The Midnight Coterie Of Sinister Intruders, Wes Anderson, SNL
If you Google "Wes Anderson parody," you'll find no shortage of videos offering their own slight barbs at the visually distinctive filmmaker. And, like most jokes on the internet, few of them are actually funny. But leave it "Saturday Night Live" to hit the home run in the category, serving up a parody on Anderson's films that also manages to be something of a sweet homage at the same time.

Grand Budapest Hotel, Ralph Fiennes
Teased earlier this week with the poster, the trailer for Wes Anderson's eighth feature length effort, "The Grand Budapest Hotel" has finally arrived. The auteur has said several times in recent years that he has no plans to change up his famously idiosyncratic style. "My natural handwriting is neat and it is like my personality. Somewhere along the way I made this choice: I can force myself to not be what I feel I naturally am or I can just go with it and develop it," he said last year in Cannes. "[Repeating myself] is not something I think about. I really think about just the world of this movie, and what this one is going to be." And yes, this 'Grand Budapest Hotel' trailer is very Wes Anderson-y, showing off his second period piece following the '60s setting of "Moonrise Kingdom."

While David Bowie's new music video represents the very heights of the format, with ambitious visuals, important themes and high production values, then the latest from The Lonely Island is the counterweight to that. Goofy, hilarious, and probably shot in about two days, it might not boast the biggest ideas or highest aspirations, but it's still pretty rad.

We don't always see Edward Norton exercise his comedy chops, but he's definitely got 'em. From last year's "Moonrise Kingdom" to the underseen "Leaves Of Grass" to the underrated "Everyone Says I Love You", even to his directorial effort "Keeping The Faith," the actor has got a funny bone. And lucky for us, he's going to put it to use once again.

As of Monday, Oscar ballots have been sent out, online voting (for the first time ever) is underway, and the endgame of the 2012 awards season approaches. And thanks to the cottage industry of awards predictions and precursors, the narrative is already in place. If you've been talked up as an Oscar contender for the last several months, if you've already been anointed by critics groups or the Golden Globes, then you're seriously in the race. If not, then you should probably make other plans for that Sunday in February.

Edward Norton Talks Playing The Conflicted Morality & Patriotism Of Eric Byer In 'The Bourne Legacy'

"We are the sin eaters. It means that we take the moral excrement we find in this equation and we bury it down deep inside of us, so that the rest of our case can stay pure. That is the job. We are morally indefensible, and absolutely necessary." This is Edward Norton as Col. Eric Byer in his manifesto to Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross in "The Bourne Legacy." It's their only shared scene in the picture and it's this striking piece of dialogue that truly captures the texture and complexity Tony Gilroy has imbued in the "side-quel" film. Indeed, one would be generally hard pressed to find villains -- for lack of a better word -- as nuanced as Byer in a summer tentpole, but that was exactly what drew Norton to the character and to the film itself.

This week will finally see the answer to one of Hollywood's great questions: will audiences watch a 'Bourne' movie without Matt Damon? The answer will be provided by Tony Gilroy's "The Bourne Legacy," the first of what could be a potential franchise starring Jeremy Renner as Aaron Cross, a similar agent to Jason Bourne, but a product of the Department of Defense's Operation Outcome, a different training program from the CIA's Treadstone. Gilroy is no stranger to the 'Bourne' franchise, having been a writer or co-writer on all three installments, but once Damon and "Bourne Supremacy" and "Bourne Ultimatum" director Paul Greengrass decided against returning, he was tasked with creating what producer Frank Marshall called a "same-time-quel."
