"Moonrise Kingdom" marks an important moment in the Anderson canon: it's his first film without any involvement from Owen Wilson, his writing partner and frequent star. Wilson co-wrote and starred in "Bottle Rocket," he co-wrote "Rushmore" (and contributed a little pictoral cameo), co-wrote and starred in "The Royal Tenenbaums," starred in "The Life Aquatic" and "The Darjeeling Limited," and let his voice to a minor character in "The Darjeeling Limited." But in 'Moonrise?' Despite rumors of a cameo, he's nowhere to be found, either in front of or behind the camera.

There was a moment, near the start of the '00s, when Owen Wilson was more often seen running away from an explosion than heading up dog-oriented family flicks and romantic comedies, using that familiar drawl to mask a film's flaws. The end results were never that mind-blowing (see: “Shanghai Knights,” “Behind Enemy Lines”), but there was a unique, unassuming presence to his action roles that remained interesting, and now it seems Wilson is curious to dive back into genre waters once again.

After directing last year's "Real Steel," it looked like director Shawn Levy was heading back home to 20th Century Fox to direct either an adaptation of "Frankenstein" or, possibly, a remake "Fantastic Voyage." As of September of last year, Levy said that both projects were still "possibilities," but in February, it looked like Levy would instead return to comedy (or perhaps he never left depending on how you feel about "Real Steel") with "The Internship," which would reunite "Wedding Crashers" actors Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson. With the dust settled, Levy is officially helming "The Internship."

Brewing for a while, "Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner's feature film debut has been through a few different incarnations. Way, back in 2009 Jennifer Aniston, Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis were the first names to line up for the movie that was in very advance planning to shoot last year. But in the fall of 2010, new names cropped up with Jack Black, Matt Dillon and Renée Zellweger all being eyed. But riding off the heat of the massive season five opener for "Mad Men," Weiner is building up his cast again and it's pretty strong.

With Paul Weitz's "Being Flynn" beginning its limited rollout in theaters this weekend, the helmer isn't wasting any time getting to this next pic. The project, titled "Admission," has been brewing for over a year now, with Tina Fey attached to star, and it was just over a week ago that the director said he still intends to make it his next film. And it seems the wheels are starting to turn.

"Wedding Crashers" fans, listen up.

The script was written by Vaughn himself (he also penned "Couples Retreat") and Shawn Levy looks set to direct and make this his follow-up to "Real Steel."

Errol Morris? Cryogenics? Sound familiar? Over the summer, the documentarian Morris let it drop that Paul Rudd would lead his adaptation of the memoir “We Froze The First Man.” Well, it looks like it's now beginning to take shape with a new title and one helluva cast coming together.

While Paramount has the script co-written by Ben Stiller and Justin Theroux, and are still trying to decide whether or not to go ahead with "Zoolander 2" (c'mon guys, is a decision on this one really that difficult? Hint: Do it), we'll take whatever morsels of info we can and the latest comes from Hansel himself, Owen Wilson.

Who Were The Winners And Losers Of The Summer Of 2011?

As the summer winds die down with a flat and uninspired whimper, the realization sets in: the summer of 2011 was for the birds. "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" was the last major tent-pole to open, followed by sleeper hits like "The Help" and the not-so-successful R-rated action comedy, "30 Minutes or Less." Many had forecast that the overstuffed summer would prove disastrous, with Jon Favreau predicting that, "There’s not a weekend where there won’t be teeth on the floor," but ironically it's Favreau's film that proved to be one of the biggest box-office disappointments. Financially, films did very well with three billion-dollar blockbusters – “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2,” “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”-- helping the industry set a summer box-office record and nearly rebound from a horrible start to 2011 (Currently, 2011 revenue is running only 4 percent behind 2010, but in March, things were looking grim – 19% lower than the year previous).
