If there was any doubt before that Bradley Cooper is a fully-fledged movie star, the first few months of 2011 have wiped that away: he took an underdog genre picture "Limitless," sold almost entirely on his name, to an impressive gross of nearly $150 million worldwide, while "The Hangover Part II" overcame its poisonous reviews to make nearly that much in only a week of release in the U.S. alone. And, while we're not convinced of his charms just yet (he comes across as a little smug), Cooper's certainly made some interesting choices with his stardom.

After shacking up with Batman's brother in "The Fighter," Amy Adams is set to become Superman's dame. According to the L.A. Times, Zack Snyder has found his Lois Lane for the upcoming "Superman" project slated for a late 2012 release, and it's Oscar nominee Adams, who will step into the iconic workaholic high heels. If the rumors are to be believed (and not all of them are), Adams beat out less-pedigreed competition in Kristen Stewart, Jessica Biel, Rachel McAdams, Malin Ackerman, Dianna Agron, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Amanda Seyfried, Olivia Wilde, Mila Kunis, Lindsay Lohan, Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway, Abe Vigoda, Bristol Palin, Justin Bartha, Elizabeth Bathory, Ms. Pac-Man... rumors are rumors, we suppose.

Deadline reveals -- and recent reports have hinted -- that Jennifer Lawrence has dropped out of Oliver Stone's drug cartel thriller "Savages." However, a host of new names have popped up for the film as it moves toward its summer production start.

There are a whole lot of movies coming this summer based on comic books, but the one we're looking forward to most doesn't come from either the Marvel or DC banners. Jon Favreau's "Cowboys & Aliens," based on the graphic novel of the same title, is an ambitious melding of two genres that looks to be delivering the goods on both counts. The first trailer impressed and this afternoon, the Super Bowl spot from the film dropped and within its thirty second runtime, it has renewed our interest in the film all over again.

Bana Also Taking A Meeting On 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter The career of Eric Bana to date has been kind of a funny one. The Australian former stand-up comedian grabbed everyone's attention with a blazing performance, one of the decade's best, in Andrew Dominik's "Chopper," but when Hollywood discovered that Bana could clean up into a chiseled leading man, the actor was thrust into action roles in "Hulk" and "Troy." These were followed by leads in misfires "Lucky You" and "The Other Boleyn Girl," with only an excellent performance in Steven Spielberg's "Munich" proving to be a bright light.
