Well, "Arrested Development" fans, you haven’t been dreaming this entire time. We now have a couple of images from the highly anticipated fourth season, and while it’s only two spoiler-free images, it still serves as a reminder that we are merely months away from getting the chance to sit down, relax, and soak in all fourteen episodes in one sitting. That is, if you have that kind of attention span.

As folks will soon see during the end credits of "This Is 40," Melissa McCarthy is an improv machine. “I've seen people in tears before, but that was something otherworldly. People were leaving the room -- crew had to leave. It was impossible, and she just kept her composure through all of it,” Paul Rudd said about working with her on Judd Apatow's film, with the director adding, quite simply: "...Melissa is one of the best improvisers there is." And hopefully Seth Gordon knew enough to let her go off script, but even if not, the new trailer for "Identity Thief" does have some promise.

If the formula works, why break it? Jason Bateman has had a career resurgence playing the exasperated straight man starting with "Arrested Development" and taking that persona through a number films, while Melissa McCarthy has used her physique and personality to portray women who go right over the top. So what do you get when you put them both in a movie? "Identity Thief."

Hey guys, the internet can be totally fun times with stuff like Tumblr, porn, Facebook, memes, YouTube and whatnot. However, very bad stuff can happen on it too, and it could probably ruin your life or something. That seems to be the message of "Disconnect," the first narrative feature from "Murderball" director Henry Alex Rubin, and his first movie since 2005.

Too good to be true? Nope, it's happening. The long-awaited return of the cult sitcom "Arrested Development" is right around the corner. Or at least, production is about to start, and no, this isn't a pipe dream or wishful thinking. "Taken at AD mission control, today! All systems are go. Filming for the new episodes starts in four weeks. Woo!," Jason Bateman tweeted last night, posting a photo of himself, producer/narrator Ron Howard and series creator Mitch Hurwitz.

“Arrested Development” is finally making its way back before cameras thanks to Netflix, so that means that the cast will be too busy for other projects in the near future, right? Wrong. Jason Bateman is planning on taking the lead role in the Andrew Dodge’s 2011 Black Listed indie comedy “Bad Words.” He’ll play a bitter thirtysomething (despite being 43) who exploits a loophole to enter a kids' spelling bee. Not content with simply starring in the film though, Bateman has lined this up to be his debut feature as a director.

For the most part, Adam Shankman has been known for big screen spectacle, bringing to multiplexes the likes of "Bedtime Stories," "Hairspray" and this summer's '80s musical "Rock Of Ages." But the helmer is looking to shift gears a bit as earlier this year he signed on to direct an adaptation of Jonathan Tropper's best selling novel "This Is Where I Leave You." Never one lacking for an all star cast, Shankman has gathered up yet another strong group of talent to help him tell the tale.

What makes a man shave his chest? Sport a hirsute, ridiculously long and absurd-looking beard? Bleach his anus, thread his eyebrows or play around with his facial hair in any number of manscaping ways? These are some of the questions posed in Morgan Spurlock's latest cheery and congenial documentary, "Mansome."
