Boyhood
"That thing has been in development for over three years. Interesting how the week I have a film coming out someone decides it's a good idea to promote this. Not sure what they hope to gain," "Boyhood" director Richard Linklater told Indiewire about the brewing remake of "The Incredible Mr. Limpet," one that he also recently said "wasn't happening." So take this next bit of info with a grain or three of salt.

A Million Ways To Die in The West
Even if you’re not a fan of Seth MacFarlane, you have to acknowledge that the comedic multi-hyphenate has built an empire with his quick-fire, profanity-laced delivery and encyclopedic understanding of pop culture. You’ve got to give him something for the fearlessness, and possibly tonal cluelessness, with which he tackles material. The problem of course is that, armed with that gusto, MacFarlane often belly flops when he’s outside of his comfort zone.

Adèle Exarchopoulos
Despite roles in blockbusters like “Prometheus,” “Thor” and “Pacific Rim,” Idris Elba still hasn’t had that one role that would catapult him into a household name—sorry, “The Wire” doesn’t count—but he’ll be getting his shot at the spotlight with the previously-announced action vehicle “Bastille Day.”

A Million Ways To Die in The West
You sorta gotta admire the hubris. After his directorial debut "Ted" became a massive hit, Seth MacFarlane hosted the Oscars and embarked on his next feature effort, the western comedy "A Million Ways To Die In The West." And oh yeah, he gave himself the leading role. Now the question is whether or not audiences prefer him in front of the camera or just sticking behind it and doing funny voices.

The newest trend on TV—which, like most trends, isn’t exactly new—is taking big-screen properties to the small screen. Joining the forthcoming limited series takes on “Fargo” and “The Exorcist,” Deadline is reporting that the Bradley Cooper-starring vehicle “Limitless” will get a small-screen adaptation of its very own.

Was it beginner's luck, or is Seth MacFarlane the new R-rated comedy king? With his feature directorial debut "Ted" taking over $540 million worldwide last year, it certainly went way above and beyond what anyone was expecting of a movie with a talking, foul-mouthed teddy bear and Mark Wahlberg. And Universal is hoping MacFarlane will do it again with "A Million Ways To Die In The West." The film carries another high-concept premise, except there will be a couple of small changes: MacFarlane himself will take the lead role, and it will boast even more stars than his last effort.

Even though he's still smarting from criticism over his Oscar hosting performance, tweeting a week ago, "Hey press-- y'know that frenzy you whipped up over the Oscars? Try using the same zeal over climate change. Just once. Make yourself useful," Seth MacFarlane is pressing on with his next movie. And thanks to the smash success of last year's "Ted," it seems dude can pretty much get whoever he wants.

Review: 'Wreck-It-Ralph' Has A Great Concept But Fails To Level Up Into Something Unique

Certainly, in some quarters, anticipation for Disney's "Wreck-It-Ralph" was high. With Pixar stuck in sequel mode, and with their original story "Brave" underwhelming this summer, many wondered if the Mouse House would step it up where their colleagues dropped the ball. With a seemingly fresh premise, new tunes by Skrillex and Owl City pimped on the soundtrack, nostalgia for the adults and a glossy adventure for the kids, the ingredients all seemed to be in place. Which makes it that much more frustrating that once you pop the quarter into the machine of "Wreck-It-Ralph," it reveals itself to be nothing more than a familiar formula dressed up in 21st century clothes.

Good news, guys! Not only is the "Arrested Development" movie getting made, but it's going to get a sequel! And they're both going to win Oscars, too! That's according to Chloe Moretz anyway, who's been to the future, so she should know. And, like Zach Galifianakis, you'll also be able to have a radio inserted in your head that plays tuba music whenever you want.

In case we haven't made it pretty clear already, "Take This Waltz" is one of the best films of 2012 thus far. We've been blowing the trumpet pretty hard for the film, and that's because it's the kind of low-key, smart picture that needs to be championed, so excuse us if we're just going to make a bit more noise.
