Ordinarily, the presence of Kate Hudson would have us throwing red flags all over the place. Good lord, remember this? However, the new project she has brewing has two counterpoints: Ewan McGregor and Peter Capaldi.

Last month, the plot for Larry David's upcoming improvised comedy was revealed, ending what was an unusual amount of secrecy for the creator of HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm." At the time, the project still lacked a name and only had confirmed the casting of Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton and David himself. With HBO stepping in over the summer to release the film, the project is taking shape for a fall shoot and is putting together its cast, roughly about half of Hollywood.

Opening films at festivals are always worth approaching with a little caution. Normally given out-of-competition slots, it’s often a signal that the films have been selected to bring some starry names, and the attention that goes with them to the red carpet, or to make some kind of mission statement, with the more prestigious pictures being saved up for the main competition. But generally speaking, Venice has had a good run in the last few years for their opening night film: “Atonement,” “Burn After Reading,” “Black Swan” and “The Ides Of March” all picked up varying degrees of praise, with Giuseppe Tornatore’s “Baaria” the only one of late that failed to get much of an international following.

Mira Nair is getting her Air Miles checked, passport ready and luggage packed. She heads to Venice in August to open the proceedings there with "The Reluctant Fundamentalist," before crossing the ocean in September to unspool it for audiences at TIFF, and a few more images from the film have arrived.

While Mira Nair has enjoyed some success over the years for her films, acclaim has usually tended to gather around films set in her native India rather than her more mainstream efforts. "Vanity Fair," "Amelia," and even her segment in "New York, I Love You" have all, to one extent or another, fallen flat. Her next feature may be an adaptation of Mohsin Hamid's (mostly) New York-set novel "The Reluctant Fundamentalist", but we're really pretty intrigued to see how this one will play out.

To say that Kate Hudson hasn’t lived up to her fullest potential in the past decade is a bit of an understatement; while she was great as the heartbreaking band aide Penny Lane in Cameron Crowe’s classic “Almost Famous,” she’s been mostly reduced to fare like “My Best Friend’s Girl,” "The Skeleton Key,” and “How To Lose A Guy in Ten Days” over the past few years. We’ll try to remember her more recent work in “The Killer Inside Me” over the abysmal trailer for “A Little Bit of Heaven,” but all that may not matter now as it looks as if Hudson is about to dramatically revamp her blonde bombshell image.

DreamWorks Animation have to be feeling pretty good these days. Coming off their creative highpoint to date with "How To Train Your Dragon," the company picked up two Oscar nominations last week for the solid (if uninspired) "Puss In Boots" and "Kung Fu Panda 2," while arch-rivals Pixar missed out, having dropped the ball for the first time with "Cars 2."

It's been a while since we've heard from Mira Nair. The celebrated director behind "Salaam Bombay!," "Monsoon Wedding" and "The Namesake" flopped pretty hard in 2009 with the tepid prestige pic "Amelia" and she's been laying low since. Or so we thought. She's not only already set the cast for her next film, it's already in front of cameras.

Review: 'Something Borrowed' Is Something Truly Awful

From its empty soul to its poorly framed shots ready for pan-and-scan conversion, “Something Borrowed” seems primed to play on Saturday afternoons on E!, sandwiched between reruns of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and “Bridalplasty.” Based on the chick-lit hit of the same name by Emily Giffin, this story is a hollow one, filled with unlikable characters and dialogue from someone who likely quotes wisdom from Cosmo. If you thought that “Sex and the City 2” had too much substance, this is the movie for you.

Yep, it's gonna be one of those tedious rom-coms. You know the kind. The sort where the entire movie wouldn't exist if the protagonist would just say what they actually feel instead of being too shy/scared/stupid/insecure. Such is the case with "Something Borrowed," which has a new trailer that telegraphs the entire movie in every annoying detail.
