Don't ask us why movie marketers do what they do but when the trailer and poster for "Arthur" recently landed, the film's love interest, indie film sensation Greta Gerwig, was nowhere to be found. Well, Warner Bros. have rectified that situation with a new, horribly Photoshopped poster that crams Gerwig in there and even she gets her name at the top of the poster. Guess the indie thesp is moving on up.

Ooof. Listen, we like Russell Brand, and he can be quick with a quip and wit, but we just sat here watching the trailer for "Arthur" -- yes, a remake of the Dudley Moore comedy "classic" -- and we kept waiting for something funny to happen. It never did.

As we discussed in our review from earlier in the week, there's not much notable about "No Strings Attached," which hits theaters today. But it does mark the studio debut of indie darling Greta Gerwig, whose sweet and funny performance is one of the few highlights. She's following it up by starring alongside Russell Brand in a remake of the Dudley Moore comedy "Arthur," but fear not, Gerwig hasn't abandoned the indie world entirely, as she's also starring in "Damsels in Distress," the long-awaited return of independent film legend Whit Stillman.

It's fair to say that the state of the modern romantic-comedy is a dismal one. In the era of "Leap Year," "The Ugly Truth" and "Confessions of a Shopaholic" -- where the heroes and heroines behave in a way unrecognizable to actual human beings, the plots are interchangable and contrived, and the comedy, and indeed the romance, are nowhere to be found -- it's tempting to give the merely average likes of "Definitely Maybe" or "(500) Days of Summer" a pass, simply for having likable characters or a few interesting scenes.

Filming Begins Next SummerWhile we'll always long for the never-made version of "Greenberg" with Mark Ruffalo and Amy Adams, the fact that Ben Stillerand Noah Baumbach are now total besties means that financing probably comes much, much easier for the indie auteur, and if that means he gets more films greenlit, then who are we to complain? It was with much excitement that reports broke earlier in the month that Baumbach was quickly gearing up another film, "While We're Young," a relationship film (shock!) with Ben Stiller and James Franco set to star, and with offers out to both Cate Blanchett and Greta Gerwig. And while we love both actresses, it looks like only one of them will make it to the set.

Offers Out To Greta Gerwig & Cate BlanchettIt seems Noah Baumbach and Ben Stiller are new BFFs. Of course, they teamed on "Greenberg" which hit theaters this spring and for a while, they were both tentatively attached to the family film "Mr. Popper's Penguins" until they both dropped off (the project is now moving ahead with Jim Carrey and Mark Waters). Not only that, Baumbach was tapped to do a quick punch up on Stiller's character in the script for the currently shooting comedy "Tower Heist," so it was pretty inevitable the two would find a film to work on again as director and actor.
