On the one hand, this is directed by Gabriele Muccino, who helmed the underrated "The Pursuit of Happyness" which earned Will Smith his second Oscar nomination after "Ali." On the other hand this is directed by Gabriele Muccino who helmed the sort of ridiculous "Seven Pounds," also with Will Smith. And thirdly, this is a soccer dramedy.

So are uplifting yet tragic surfing movies a thing now? Last year we got "Soul Surfer," the true story of a young woman who gets attacked by a shark while out on the water, loses an arm, finds God, and gets back on the board. And now, we're getting another wholesome slice of sadness in the form of "Chasing Mavericks," a movie that will make you feel good before dropping some heaviness on y'all.

After a few of years since the last major effort (the ill-fated "Nine"), the live-action movie musical is back again, with two starry efforts due this year about as far away from each other as you can get. This Christmas will see the terribly-serious looking "Les Miserables" hit theaters, with a star-studded cast including Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway. But first is "Rock Of Ages," which arrives in theaters tomorrow, with another A-list ensemble including Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Gerard Butler is a busy actor whose roles have taken him all over the map in terms of genre and character. While he may be best known for muscular action flicks like “300” and romantic comedies like “The Ugly Truth,” he’s popped up as a voice talent in the animated “How To Train Your Dragon” and had his big break as The Phantom in Joel Schumacher’s rendition of “The Phantom of the Opera.” He’s not slowing down either, with a busy slate of potential projects, including the highly coveted lead role in Albert Hughes’ “Motor City” – and it was just yesterday we told you he’d be joining “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters” director Tommy Wirkola on the sci-fi comic adaptation “Afterburn.”

It's taken a while, but Gerard Butler is finally going to answer his calling as an action star. The genre-hopping tough guy found success with a couple of romantic comedies, but his Oscar bid for "Machine Gun Preacher" fell short, so he's redoubling his efforts to become an A-List head-smasher. Butler's attached to Naval thriller "Hunter Killer," war picture "Thunder Run" and a heist film, "Brilliant," and now he's going to follow in the footsteps of fellow tough guys Clint Eastwood, Michael Douglas and Wesley Snipes. You guessed it: he's going to steal the Declaration of Independence save the President Of The United States, in the jargon-y sounding "Olympus Has Fallen."

Natalie Portman Now Linked To Director's 'Gucci' Project Next year, Ridley Scott's twentieth film as director, "Alien" semi-prequel "Prometheus," will be released. The British helmer will also turn 75, and he has more films in development than most Hollywood studios; the director is attached to everything from political drama "Reykjavik" to board game adaptation "Monopoly" and, only announced a few hours ago, a biopic of turn-of-the-century explorer Gertrude Bell with Angelina Jolie. Just for good measure, another one found its way onto his dance card this evening.
