"The King's Speech" sits on the throne this morning, earning 12 Oscar nominations and looking like the film to beat at the 83rd Academy Awards, while "True Grit" follows with 10 nods and "The Social Network" with 8.

We're starting to wonder if we've been played. For months now, Gemma Arterton has been the movie-world equivalent of Julian Assange -- it seemed like every new interview would see the rising actress reveal a new project that was involved with: the "Alien" prequel, the Christopher Nolan-penned "The Keys To The Street," the British western "In With The Outlaws," Michael Winterbottom's "London Fields," Italian gangster flick "Corsica 72," biopics of Marianne Faithful and Courtney Love, and Michael Mann's "Capa."

Despite the tiredness of the franchise in general, and the ridiculous over-punctuation of its title, we're somewhat optimistic about "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," for two reasons. The first is that it marks the live-action debut of animation genius Brad Bird, who was behind "The Iron Giant" and "The Incredibles," and if the prospect of a spy movie from the man who directed the latter, perhaps Pixar's best film, doesn't excite you, we don't know what will.

After breaking out into the big leagues with his stunning performance in last year's Best Picture winner, "The Hurt Locker," Jeremy Renner has become one of the most in-demand names around. He gave an equally great performance in Ben Affleck's "The Town," before signing on to join Tom Cruise in "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol," the indie-noir "Better Living Through Chemistry" and to play Hawkeye in "The Avengers," as well as being linked to projects like "The Raven," "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" and Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master."
