Nick Frost, JB Smoove, Joy Behar, Heather Morris, Josh Gad, Alan Tudyk, Kunal Nayyar & Alain Chabat Also Join The CastHere's the deal with Nicki Minaj. We don't get it. Her whole cartoony/sexpot image combined with tepid musical output makes us wonder why she's as popular as is. The other side of the coin is that she absolutely kills it on Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy with her memorable intro on "Dark Fantasy" and arguably one of the best verses on the whole album in "Monster" (next to Pusha T's turn on "Runaway). Regardless, Minaj voicing a character in an animated film? Yeah, it sort of makes sense even if her delivery may give your children nightmares.

While Universal may have lost the release date battle against Relativity for their competing Snow White films, they may have very well won the war. Time will tell, but while Tarsem is currently very, very busy filming his movie and hoping to make it in time for its spring release, Universal has calmly cast up "Snow White and the Huntsman" and fuck, if we didn't care before, we're definitely on board now.

One of the biggest question marks of the year has been Steven Spielberg's "The Adventures of Tintin." The director's coming off the worst film of his career, "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," and tackling a comic book that few in the U.S. have heard of, in the performance capture manner that's seen the undoing of Robert Zemeckis in recent years, seemed like a fairly risky move, all things considered. And it doesn't help that the film's been mostly shrouded in mystery.

First Trailer To Arrive Tomorrow MorningFor one of the most eagerly anticipated films of the year, at least everywhere except the U.S, word's been strangely quiet on "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn." Uniting blockbuster giants Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson for the first time (the former's directing, the latter producing), on an adaptation of the massively successful graphic novel series about a Belgian boy detective, his dog Snowy, his best friend, a drunken sea captain, and the adventures they go on, we had a glimpse of a handful of images before Christmas, but little since then. We guess because the film's being realized in performance-capture computer animation, and so Sony and Paramount have presumably had to wait until the polish has been put on properly.

Yes, it's Friday. SXSW Film is over, SXSW Music is in full boozy swing and "Paul" -- after running a helluva pace through the press gauntlet at the festival and in the preceding weeks -- is finally hitting theaters. And while it seems that the chatter and buzz around "Paul" has been non-stop, this is the rare case of the film that actually deserves it. Directed by Greg Mottola, the film is much more than it what appears to be combining the breeziness of a '70s road trip film, the magic of early Amblin entertainments and of course, the distinct humor of the film's leads Simon Pegg and Nick Frost who are joined by Seth Rogen who voices the titular creature. It's a winning combination in a unique film that brings together a tremendous ensemble cast to play along including Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Jane Lynch, Sigourney Weaver, Jeffrey Tambor, Joe Lo Truglio and Bill Hader.

'Paul' Soundtrack Gets U.S. Release; Comic Duo Reveal Early Drafts Of Film Were Quentin Tarantino-esqueYes, you're going to be seeing a lot of Nick Frost and Simon Pegg in the lead up to "Paul" but frankly, better them than Adam Sandler. And when they're doing goofy, very funny riffs like their recent "remake" of "Star Wars," we're glad they're getting the attention. So yeah, like we just mentioned, the duo recently teamed on a riveting shot-by-shot homage to George Lucas' classic -- only for things to not go so well between the oil and water team. You can watch it below.

How The Film Doubles As Seth Rogen Biopic & More We Learned In Our Chat With The Cast & DirectorTwo nerds, after spending the time of their life at the geek haven that is Comic-Con, soon find themselves in the epic situation of having to get an alien to his homeship. And though it's a dream come true for the protagonists, it's also a certain death sentence with multiple villains on their tail. But thankfully in "Paul," nobody's yelling at any marines nor are there abrasive video game action scenes -- this is the "better" alien movie in theaters, chock full of laughs and coated with a genuine sweetness that you wouldn't expect from a movie centered on a foul-mouthed alien voiced by Seth Rogen.

Third Installment Of The Cornetto Trilogy Not Even Started, C'mon Guys!If you don't speak geek-ese like we do, here's a translation: The "Three Flavours Cornetto" trilogy is the unofficial nickname of the films made by director Edgar Wright and actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (a nice knowing nod to Krzysztof Kieslowski which we appreciate) Presumably, you've heard of the first two installments, "Shaun Of The Dead" and "Hot Fuzz," and while they are not sequels of any kind, they all star Pegg and Frost, they're penned by Pegg and Wright and they're directed by the "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" filmmaker.
