With "The Hunger Games" now sitting pretty among the top twenty domestic grossers of all time (it's about to overtake "Jurassic Park"), the fallacy that wide audiences won't go to action-oriented films starring a female lead seems to have been disproven. And we're about to get more helpings of this combination, with "Prometheus" and "Snow White and the Huntsman" both looking to be among the biggest likely hits of the summer, and both led by women. And yet the doubters still prevail. While box office prognosticators sniffed in the past that films starring rats, wordless robots and an old man could be monster hits for Pixar, the studio's latest, "Brave," is being downgraded by many due it to being the first of the company's films led by a female character.

Disney's French YouTube channel (via Bleeding Cool) has debuted a new, minute-long featurette for their upcoming Disney/Pixar fairy tale "Brave." The piece seems to be part of a larger marketing scheme called "Brave Stories" that we'll probably see in America on the Disney Channel or ABC's Saturday morning programming (and, of course, online). Despite its brief running time, the featurette offers some new footage and some plot specifics.

When Disney snatched up the Black List script "Saving Mr. Banks" back in February, not only was it one of the hottest buys of the year so far, there was added oomph by the fact the studio was already looking to cast Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep for the lead roles. And hell, landing one out of two ain't bad...

Over at Entertainment Weekly, four new posters for Disney/Pixar's "Brave" have appeared, in anticipation of the film's fast-approaching June 22nd release. Additionally, director Mark Andrews, who infamously took over the project after the film's original co-writer/director Brenda Chapman was fired, offered commentary on the new posters, which feature selected characters from the off-kilter fairy tale, delivering tidbits of plot information that have yet to leak.

Back in 1993, Emma Thompson was nominated for an Oscar for her portrayal of the human rights lawyer Gareth Peirce, alongside Daniel Day-Lewis in Jim Sheridan’s “In the Name of the Father,” ultimately losing out (famously) to an 11-year-old Anna Paquin for “The Piano.” Nearly two decades later, Emma Thompson will once again portray the lawyer who famously turned down a CBE, and has worked alongside clients ranging from the family of Jean Charles de Menezes to the Birmingham Six and Julian Assange. Thompson will revisit the character in the international thriller, “The Secret Evidence.”

Of all the big tentpole pictures of next year, none seems to have had a more troubled production than "Men in Black 3." The first film in the series, in 1997, was an enjoyable sci-fi comedy, but it took five years to get a sequel together,  and when "Men In Black 2" hit theaters in 2002, virtually no-one was impressed with an unfunny reprise of the original. Ten years on, Will Smith's picked the franchise to be his return to the screen after an absence of four years, but the film had problems of its own; the project was greenlit with only one act of the sequel complete to take advantager of NYC tax breaks, but Will Smith allegedly tinkered with the script, with two more writers, Jeff Nathanson and David Koepp, brought on to fix things during an extended hiatus, while the budget soared up to $215 million, and Alec Baldwin was forced to drop out of a role when shooting didn't restart on time.

Ridley and Tony Scott (pictured above, with Jerry Bruckheimer) are prolific enough as directors -- the former currently shooting his return to the sci-fi world that turned out his best film, with the intriguing "Prometheus," the latter coming off his best film in years, the hugely enjoyable actioner "Unstoppable." But they're also hugely prolific producers, through their Scott Free banner, being behind not only their own projects, but also those for other filmmakers, like "In Her Shoes," "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford," "The A-Team" and "Cyrus," as well as TV work like "The Good Wife" and "The Pillars of the Earth."
