Noah, Logan Lerman
Nothing about the forthcoming "Noah" will remind you of Sunday School except that it rains and there's an ark. With Darren Aronofsky spinning an environmental tale with fantasy elements, he brings a new but still Biblically-sound take on the story, one that forgoes the sunnier version you might have heard. So when it was announced that rock icon Patti Smith was working on a song for the tune, it kind of made sense.

"Noah" is coming with all of God's watery fury next month, and we presume the floodgates of images and clips will soon be opening up too. But until then, it's still small servings as Darren Aronofsky puts the finishing touches on the film.

With every new piece of info that emerges surrounding director Randall Miller's rock 'n' roll tribute “CBGB," the more the film simply certifies itself as having a brilliant casting director in Richard Pagano. After Alan Rickman, Malin Akerman and Rupert Grint all found unconventional but intriguing roles as various mainstays of the famous New York club, the production continues its streak of inspired choices by adding a talented musician, a sitcom star, and a period-drama actress, among others, to the list.

Okay, so the "Rum Diary" wasn't a big hit and frankly, wasn't a very good movie either. All the promise of a sun soaked Hunter S. Thompson surrogate in Johnny Depp was wasted with a narrative that went nowhere in a movie that is really only notable for Amber Heard looking great in it. But the music was pretty top shelf, and in fact, it seems to have been so good that a second soundtrack album is on the way.

Release Includes Score By Christopher Young, Plus Cuts From Dean Martin & Patti SmithHey, you know a movie that we keep forgetting is coming out soon? "The Rum Diary." The long-in-the-works adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson's book, which sees Johnny Depp return to the part of the author, which he previously played in "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," is slightly over two weeks from release, but, having skipped the festival circuit entirely (not a particularly good sign...), the publicity machine has been fairly quiet for Bruce Robinson's film, considering it stars the planet's biggest movie star.
