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.

Search For Female Lead Narrowed To Olivia Wilde & Sarah SilvermanSince "The Sopranos" ended back in 2007, James Gandolfini's been doing pretty well for himself, all told. He might not have taken any roles with as major an impact on the cultural zeitgeist as angsty mob boss Tony Soprano, but he's managed to tackle a diverse range of stuff, from a foul-mouthed general in "In The Loop" to a mood-swing-prone monster in "Where The Wild Things Are," and he's got some high-profile supporting turns on the way, in Stephen Daldry's "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" and Andrew Dominik's "Cogan's Trade."

In Sarah Polley's Toronto-set drama "Take this Waltz," Margo (Michelle Williams) stumbles across Daniel (Luke Kirby) on a business trip, only to find he lives across the street; despite being married to Lou (Seth Rogen), Margo can't stop thinking of Daniel. Or maybe it's because she's married to Lou that she can't stop thinking of Daniel … Following up "Away from Her," Polley's second film is sharply dividing critics and audience in Toronto: Many find it simultaneously exhilarating and depressing; others find it ugly and hateful; a third faction seems to be kicking against the film not for how it says what it says, but, instead, for what it says in the first place.
