The story of rugby player Gareth Thomas is a fascinating one. The Welsh rugby legend represented his country on 100 occasions, scoring 40 tries and becoming one of the greatest to ever play the game. He had a brief swansong representing Welsh club side Celtic Crusaders, before making a foray into reality television with an appearance on "Celebrity Big Brother" earlier this year. But the remarkable part of the story is that in 2009, after finalizing his divorce from his childhood sweetheart, Thomas announced publicly that he was gay. That made him the first openly gay rugby player, and easily the most high-profile gay athlete in Britain.

While "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" didn't bring home any Oscar gold in February, Tomas Alfredson's expertly calibrated spy thriller proved that the genre can deliver just as much thrills with dialogue, obversation and a deeply intelligent approach, than movies packed with gadgets, martinis, babes and tuxedos. The picture finally earned Gary Oldman his long overdue first Oscar nomination, and brought together an ensemble of Britain's finest acting talents the likes of which we may not ever see again.

You know how we just did that piece about how studios are looking to tighten their budgets and deliver cheapie movies that pay off big? Don't let the currently hot found-footage genre mislead you -- both audiences and moviemakers still want big stars, and a trio of actors have been tapped in the last week or so as talent that studios are hoping will bring them big dividends.

If Osama Bin Laden weren't already dead, we might fear for his safety purely based on the strength of the cast Kathryn Bigelow is assembling for her (still untitled) "Kill Bin Laden" flick. Oscar winner Mark Boal ("The Hurt Locker") wrote the script and Joel Edgerton and Jessica Chastain will head a cast that also includes Mark Strong (as a good guy this time...surely?), Jason Clarke, Edgar Ramirez, Kyle Chandler and Chris Pratt. And now the production has added two more to bolster that cast.

Picking a Valentine's Day movie is always a tricky thing: do you pander to marketing and go with something love-themed, or do you just pick something you both want to see? The correct answer is always "find somewhere playing 'Casablanca,' " but in lieu of that, the studios have lined up a wealth of options -- Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams in "The Vow" for the more romantically-minded, or Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds in action mode in "Safe House," both of which open this Friday, just in time for Valentine's Day.

Everyone is banking on Tom Hardy becoming a big, big star. Harvey Weinstein has already moved "The Wettest County" to the end of the summer, hoping to ride the wave of the actor's post-"The Dark Knight Rises" fame and Warner Bros. is anxious to keep the actor in house. He's already set to spend the a good chunk of 2012 filming George Miller's long awaited "Fury Road" for the studio, and they are already getting the actor started on another role, one that he won't tackle until next year.

At the close of 2011, Warner Bros. hit us with a tease of 2012's biggest blockbuster event, the trailer for "The Dark Knight Rises." What's interesting about this trailer isn't what it reveals as much as what it hides and obscures.
