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.

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.

Yes, its yet another project linked to James Franco who seems to be spending his time between classes, just calling up producers in Hollywood and chatting with them about projects that pique his curiosity.

Dear Gael García Bernal, Why? Why? Did you need the money? Did you lose a bet? Did you do it as a dare? Whatever the reason, you have shattered our little hearts by agreeing to star in this abomination of a romcom, "A Little Bit of Heaven" with Kate Hudson. Dude, you are so much fucking better than this.
