Through the beginnings of Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio’s careers existed a parallel role choice before diverging in approach, and so it's with perhaps a tinge of familiarity, post-“Revolutionary Road,” that Maguire stepped in for his own take on a crumbling marriage with 2011 Sundance hit “The Details.” However, despite finding distribution coin (to the tune of $8 mil) from The Weinstein Company, the Jacob Aaron Estes (“Mean Creek”) black comedy is just now finding theatrical release next month, but rather than bury the film, they’ve instead ramped up promotion with a slew of new material to witness.

There are two kinds of Sundance films. There are those that earn instant buzz, get picked up, continue on the festival circuit and become a success. And there are the movies that get a lot of heat at Park City or feature some big stars, get bought up and then sit on the shelf or underperform. Unfortunately for "The Details," it has fallen into the latter category.

Accent: check. Impersonation of famous person in biopic: check. Forbidden love: check. Wheelchair: check. It looks like Bill Murray is ready for his Oscar moment. The actor was seen as a favorite for the award in 2004 for his performance in "Lost In Translation," but was beaten at the last by Sean Penn in "Mystic River." He's continued to make quirky, picky choices ever since, but no film seems to have a better chance of giving him another run at for awards gold than period drama "Hyde Park on Hudson," a trailer for which has just debuted over at Yahoo.

At the Academy Awards, Best Picture might be the big prize, but the ones that both the winners and the audience have the most emotional connection to tend to be the acting prizes. Seeing a beloved star, or a fresh-faced newcomer, finally pick up a statue more often than not ends up leading the mainstream media coverage; it's always more moving than some producer's acceptance speech.

Olivia Colman To Play Queen ElizabethDepressingly for those of us in the U.K. who would like to throw off the yoke of our apparently-appointed-by-god inbred oppressors, royalty is big business at the moment. Between the enormous, Oscar-winning success of "The King's Speech," and the royal wedding last week, the Windsors are back, and there's more than one film project in the works at present. For instance, Dakota Fanning is attached to play the young Princess Margaret in the romantic-comedy "Girl's Night Out," although that won't move forward until after director Michael Hoffman is done with "Gambit."
