Jon Martello is the quintessential modern-day lothario. He and his friends objectify women, rate them on a scale of one to ten and cruise clubs for chicks that they can bed and discard. Jon, in particular, is exceptionally good at wooing the ladies with his muscles, slick-backed hair and cocky charms. His life, as he tells us in voiceover, is all about his friends, the gym, his ride (a Camaro muscle car), his family, church (no, really), girls and pornography. Lots and lots of pornography. Jon is an inveterate and compulsive porn addict, so much so that it prevents him from having a substantial relationship with any female. Jon Martello, in case you missed it, is a total guido from New Jersey, complete with "Jersey Shore "accent.

In the works for nearly two years when Steve Carell first signed on, the rocker dramedy "Imagine" has been moving along very slowly, in fact, not much at all. Last year, Al Pacino signed on followed by more silence, but now with the American Film Market coming up and a spring shoot in the works, there has been a shake up.

New York Comic Con, like most every other comic book, sci-fi or fantasy convention on planet Earth, is notoriously a boys club, designed chiefly for adolescent males (or the adolescent males in grown men). But on Saturday, Comic Con got a much-needed blast of feminine fresh air, as the stars and director of the upcoming "Carrie" remake took the stage at the IGN Theater – Julianne Moore, director Kimberly Peirce, and Chloe Grace Moretz were on hand as was producer Kevin Misher. They talked about the differences in this film to the Brian De Palma original, how much they adored the Stephen King source material, and how many gallons of blood was used. They also showed a brand-new teaser that gives good hints at what's to come.

While we wait for Fox to convince Liam Neeson to return for "Taken 3," that they clearly want, for those of you looking for more low-rent, insipid action from the actor, he's got "Non-Stop" coming. It's just too bad he's bringing some other actors who deserve better down with him.

It would seem that, for whatever reason, folks are more curious than wary about Kimberly Peirce's remake of Brian De Palma's classic adaptation of Stephen King's "Carrie." Whatever the outcome may be, we're guessing that curiosity will continue to win out with the arrival of the impressive first official look at Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore, who'll be starring as timid high-schooler Carrie White and her fundamentalist mother Margaret respectively -- roles portrayed in De Palma's originally by Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie.

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.

With a release date slated last week, the wheels are now firmly in motion on the Kimberly Peirce's "Carrie" remake starring Chloe Moretz. With the lead actress now locked in, the task is now on hand to find someone to play the poor girl's deranged mother, and a name that has already been bandied about seems to be taking a more firm shape.

In February it was revealed that renaissance man, HitRecord honcho himself, Joseph Gordon-Levitt was mounting his first feature-length directorial effort. A comedy starring actor and Scarlett Johansson, to anyone who's ever paid even a modicum of attention to Gordon-Levitt's HitRecord operation -- a open-collaboration production company/burgeoning multi-media mini-empire of short films, music, media of all trades -- the actor turning feature-length filmmaker is no real surprise.

The unnecessary-but-it's-happening-anyway remake of "Carrie" over at MGM continues to move forward. At the beginning of the year, a random, but kind of inspired decision was made to have Kimberly Peirce sit in the director's chair, and now it seems a gaggle of young Hollywood talent is circling the title role.

The debate about fair vs one-sided portraits aside -- the narrative of which has dominated the political conversation side of things so far -- "Game Change," Jay Roach's HBO film about Sarah Palin's effect on the 2008 Republican campaign to elect John McCain, is, by and large, an absorbing and entertaining docu-drama-like account of this period in election history. It's also perhaps one of the most effective political cautionary tales to date, an evidential A-Z portrait of what not to do when trying to pick a running mate.
