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.

Watch: Trailer For Christopher Nolan's 'The Dark Knight Rises' Hints At A Dark & Epic Final Conclusion To The Batman Saga

Yes, you may have seen a cruddy version of Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" trailer a few days ago, the third and final film in his epic Batman trilogy, or the big-screen version in front of "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows," but if you struggled to hear and see what it all was about, behold the beautiful, high-definition version that is not only incredibly impressive, but looks wickedly ominous and striking. The wonderful thing that Nolan does with all his trailers is make the stakes of his films look incredibly high, as in do-or-die, and "The Dark Knight Rises" looks no different. This looks dark with deep and powerful consequences around every corner. It appears that some kind of army is rising and it's something that neither Batman nor Gotham has ever faced.

With “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” now playing in IMAX theaters, the first 6 minutes of “The Dark Knight Rises” is now officially playing for thousands of Batman fans across the country – at least those lucky enough to live near one of the 50-some IMAX screens playing the footage. We couldn’t resist taking another look at the footage yesterday and after seeing the prologue a second time, we have a few questions for Nolan and co. about the mysterious intro, as well as a few guesses about where the film might be headed. Warning: there are some SPOILERS ahead, so please don’t read on until after you’ve seen the footage.
