Oldboy trailer
There's only ever one way a remake of Park Chan-wook's "Oldboy" was ever going to even a have a chance of approaching an original -- embracing the fact the story requires a hard-R to get told right. And for the first trailer for Spike Lee's take on the material, the studio is making it clear that they've gone right to the limit and then some in bringing it to American audiences. Now the question is: does it work?

Bryan Cranston & Elizabeth Olsen Are In Talks For Legendary's 'Godzilla' Reboot

Legendary Pictures' expensive "Godzilla" reboot has been having a rough time in the public eye of late. It's scheduled to go into production soon, but the production company is embroiled in two lawsuits; one with the producers Dan Lin, Roy Lee and Doug Davison who claim they are being booted from the monster movie by Legendary. It's near the 11th hour too and "The Shawshank Redemption," "Walking Dead" writer/director Frank Darabont was brought on board to do a final rewrite on the movie. And then there's the actors who have publicly passed on the lead role, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and others who have evidently been offered the lead (Aaron Johnson) who haven't responded in almost a month (our guess is Johnson also passed). So, is "Godzilla" in trouble? Or is it just business as usual with tentpoles that seem to put the horse before the cart these days?

Despite its less-than-refined origins, the team behind the film adaptation of EL James’ “Fifty Shades of Grey” are ensuring in every way their end result will have some prestige. Focus Features (along with parent company Universal) have decided the film belongs in their library alongside “Pride and Prejudice” and “Brokeback Mountain,” and recently “The Social Network” producers Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti have come on board as well. However, it's the search for the female lead that’s really grown intense, but as more and more names are thrown into the mix, two talented actresses have now let the extent of their involvement, or indeed, lack of it, known.

At only 23 years old, Elizabeth Olsen's career is just beginning. As you know, she broke out in last year's cult drama "Martha Marcy May Marlene" and we've since seen her spread her wings a little bit. Earlier this year she did the horror thing with "Silent House" and later this year she'll pop up in a variety of films including the thriller "Red Lights," the dramedy "Peace, Love & Misunderstanding" and her latest Sundance effort "Liberal Arts." But at the moment, she's stepping into her first period picture.

Don't call it a comeback, but it looks like Jane Fonda is ready to get back to work. The actress/fitness guru/activist hasn't been entirely idle on the big screen in the past ten years, but she hasn't been Jessica Chastain either. Back in 2005, Fonda co-starred in the Jennifer Lopez romantic comedy "Monster-in-Law," Fonda's first acting role in 15 years. Despite being hated by critics, the film was a box office success, and seemed to herald Fonda's return to acting. However, after 2007's "Georgia Rule," Fonda disappeared again only to reappear years later with three projects: the comedy-drama "Peace, Love & Misunderstanding," a recurring role on Aaron Sorkin's HBO series "The Newsroom," and, last month, Fonda was cast as Nancy Reagan in Lee Daniels' "The Butler." The excellent trailer for "The Newsroom" arrived earlier this month, and now the first trailer for "Peace, Love & Misunderstanding" has been revealed by Yahoo!.

After a breakout year in 2011 courtesy of "Martha Marcy May Marlene," up-and-coming actress Elizabeth Olsen is planning for 2012 to be a "year of firsts": "my first time portraying a real-life person," "my first period piece," and "for the first time in my life, I'm putting work first."
