Well, at the very least, "No One Lives" actually delivers on its title, however, it also tells you exactly what will happen in an already rote, routine and predictable movie. It's an R-rated horror flick that -- with a few obvious, quick cuts -- could easily be PG-13, perhaps indicating no one really knew what they wanted from the start. It's a movie that takes place mostly over the course of one night, utilizing a small handful of locations, but the low budget would suggest this was a choice of financing, rather than the requirements of the script. It's a movie that casts "Hey, it's that guy!" character actor Gary Grubbs in a part even too small and innocuous for him. Really, "No One Lives" isn't so much awful, but an example of a series of bad decisions that wind up resulting in a bad movie. Sometimes it's as simple as that.

So is Luke Evans the new reboot king? At any rate, it seems Hollywood is ready for him to be the next thing. He's the baddie in this summer's gearhead flick "Fast & Furious 6" which led to Universal tasking him with "Dracula," a relaunch of their iconic movie monster. And now another character with a penchant for darkness will get Evans taking it on.

The horror genre is filled with movies where a rogue group of bad dudes take some people captive and do some pretty nasty things to them, but what happens when one of these victims turns to be even deadlier than the villains? That's the central premise of the upcoming, gritty "No One Lives."

So, is Luke Evans the next "thing"? Universal seems to think so. Set to make life hard for Vin Diesel and his muscled out bros in "Fast & Furious 6" this summer, the Brit actor is now getting his own franchise, and its getting a big release date.

So, is Luke Evans on the cusp of breaking out on the big screen? Lord knows the actor has been paying his dues. From "Clash Of The Titans" to "Immortals" to "Robin Hood" to "The Three Musketeers," Evans has plenty of history in franchises...that never quite took off. But 2013 seems to be the year where he poised to break the spell. He'll play Bard The Bowman in "The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug," and next month he gets to bite into a juicy bad guy role in "Fast & Furious 6." And clearly, Universal like what they see.

In case you hadn't heard, diehard fans of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" received a treat last week with a behind-the-scenes look at the sequel, "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug." However, you could only participate in the Peter Jackson-led Q&A if you had purchased the 'Unexpected Journey' Blu-Ray and entered a code from the DVD package (nifty way to make you spend that extra dough for what will be a double dip release, no?). Well, some of that footage has made it's way online now and it shows a few small first-look reveals of the cast in action.

Over the past few days rumors have been flying wildly around the web that Universal, impressed with Rihanna's performance in "Battleship," were going to slot her in the villain role in the brewing "Fast & Furious 6." The reports originated from the U.K.'s The Sun paper -- a red flag if there ever was one -- and quickly spread like wildfire. We reached out to reps to see if this was accurate, but while they didn't offer a straight denial, from what we we gather, nothing was certain. And whether it was true or not that the singer was being courted, a much more reliable source is putting forth a much different name.

About ten minutes into James McTeigue's "The Raven," a large, hairy man -- a writer and a critic, as it turns out -- is strapped to a table by a mysterious figure. A mighty blade, inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's "The Pit And The Pendulum," hangs forbodingly above him. And to his unseen captor, he screams "I'm just a critic! Why? Why would you do this to me?" After sitting through a further hundred minutes of McTeigue's inept, idiotic period thriller, we knew exactly how he felt.
