Last spring, Universal scored a touchdown with the Apatow-produced, Paul Feig-directed comedy hit "Bridesmaids," and now, a year later, they're hoping they can repeat that success. Apatow is once again working his wizardry behind the scenes, this time for director Nicholas Stoller and stars Jason Segel and Emily Blunt in "The Five-Year Engagement."

Some will say he looks beefed-up, but the fact of the matter is Joseph Gordon-Levitt is under quite a bit of practical prosthetics to make him look more like Bruce Willis. Wait, what? Well, backing up a second, this is your first look at Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Rian Johnson's ("Brick," "The Brothers Bloom") much-anticipated sci-fi film, "Looper." In the high-concept picture that plays around with screwy time-travel conceits, Gordon-Levitt plays a hitman from the future who works for the mob and recognizes one of his targets as his future self.

While his own films have yet to cross over the awards threshold, Oscar nominations for last year's "Bridesmaids" in the Original Screenplay and Supporting Actress categories signify a new respectability for the comedies of Judd Apatow, the man who more than any other is responsible for the rebirth of the genre in the last few years. Films like "Anchorman," "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," "Knocked Up" and "Superbad" have brought in the big bucks over the last few years, but now they seem to be getting legitimate respect from cinephiles, something that only seems to be continuing with the writer-director-producer's next film.

Well, that was quick. Just one week after announcing it had signed on with Open Road, the distributors of the film, to co-finance Steven Soderbergh’s psychological thriller, “Side Effects,” Megan Ellison’s Annapurna pictures has backed out of the project (however, Open Road is staying put to distribute the film). But it's not all gloom and doom for "Side Effects," though, as Soderbergh's "Traffic" co-star Catherine Zeta-Jones has just signed onto the project (via Deadline).
