Sex addiction is a very real problem, but we're betting it's only at the movies where someone suffering from the disease would have Gwyneth Paltrow strutting around in lingerie in their apartment. But such is the battle Mark Ruffalo faces in the dramedy "Thanks For Sharing" from "The Kids Are All Right" writer Stuart Blumberg.

Who would have thought that sex addiction would become kind of... passé? Once a sort of taboo disease that made great fodder for tabloid talk shows, it's now positively mainstream, sitting alongside alcohol and drug addition as a treatable affliction you can learn to live with, with most folks now having a better understanding of what it's all about. But the movie world has yet to truly tackle the subject ("Shame" being one of the most high profile in recent years), but "Thanks For Sharing" will take a stab at it.

This fall will mark fifty years since November 22, 1963 -- a date that continues to haunt American history. When John F. Kennedy was assassinated, it seemed to mark an undeniable shift in the country, away from the positivity and hope that followed War War II, into a more fraught and frightened era with more wars overseas, social and political upheaval and much more. To mark the anniversary, there will undoubtedly be a ton of programming and films to choose from, and this is one of them.

David Copperfield once famously quipped to Johnny Carson, that the difference between a trick and an illusion is "about $40,000." And certainly, in recent years magic has gone from something defined by either birthday party tricksters or arena selling professionals, into a piece of slick entertainment that also includes legitimate street performers, reality show stars and much more. (In fact, one of the best in the world right now might be a guy you never heard of named Apollo Robbins). And it's against this new face of the industry where "Now You See Me" starts (as partially seen in the opening four minutes that dropped online), with a group of random performers -- ranging from the skyscraper theatrics of J. Daniel Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg) to the mentalism hustle of Merritt McKinney (Woody Harrelson) -- individually and mysteriously brought together by a shadowy figure for what becomes the ultimate illusion.

You don't see movies about magic or featuring magicians too often at the movies, and while this spring's "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" was either very magical or funny, this summer Louis Leterrier's "Now You See Me" is hoping to cast a spell. It's a summer movie without superheros or toys to back it up, but could its sleight of hand turn it into a big hit?

The Avengers
As Marvel enters Phase Two of their cinematic universe, their business universe is also getting a bit of a shake up. No one could have really predicted that Phase One would end with the billion dollar earning "The Avengers," and that really changed the game. Wisely, Robert Downey Jr. had negotiated a deal for a cut of the profits which saw him pocket a cool $50 million. Not bad, right? Well, now imagine you're one of the actors that only got $200,000 for the movie. As you might guess, that is causing some serious friction as Marvel tries to lock everyone in for "The Avengers 2."

After getting the new “Now You See Me” trailer two days ago, a boatload of new images from Louis Letterier’s magician thriller have arrived (or should I say they have magically appeared?). And they look awesome, with flames coming out of Morgan Freeman’s forehead, Dave Franco performing an intense card trick, and a graffiti-ed stage set. I repeat – FLAMES coming out of Morgan Freeman’s forehead!!
