Life, Joel Edgerton, Robert Pattinson
With diehard RPatz fans trying desperately not to fall asleep during "The American" as they bone up on the movies of Anton Corbijn, they'll have to expand their study list as another top shelf talent joins "Life."

Watch: President Barack Obama Visits 'Between Two Ferns' With Zach Galifianakis

Between Two Ferns Barack Obama

Julianne Moore
Well, here's reminder in case you forgot about this one — it's been a few years. Way back in 2010, Ellen Page signed up to star in the feature film adaptation of the Oscar winning documentary short "Freeheld," with Peter Sollett ("Raising Victor Vargas," "Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist") coming on to direct in 2012. And then nothing was heard of the project again, but today two big names are kicking it back to life.

While the adventures of John Constantine failed to capture the popular imagination on the big screen in the 2005 movie starring Keanu Reeves, DC Comics is giving it another whirl on the small screen. Last fall, Warner Bros. TV entrusted David Goyer with producing the potential series along with Daniel Cerone (“The Mentalist”), and they must like what they've been seeing.

Samuel L. Jackson, Tobey Maguire & Arcade Fire 'Between Two Ferns' With Zach Galifianakis
Perhaps this makes up for the thorough awfulness of "The Hangover Part III," or consider it an early Christmas present, at any rate, Zach Galifianakis is back with another edition of "Between Two Ferns," and as always it's loaded with insults, one liners and this time around, a band.

After working with Nicolas Winding Refn, Ridley Scott, Zack Snyder, Steven Soderbergh and hell, even Madonna, you would think that plenty of doors are already open for Oscar Isaac. Well, we're sure teaming with the Coen Brothers for "Inside Llewyn Davis" (and knocking it out of the park) kicked down a few more.

So, Todd Phillips' final chapter in the Wolfpack saga, "The Hangover Part 3," arrived this summer, providing audiences with a mirthless, joyless, unfunny and tired finale to a comedy franchise that probably should've just stayed as one movie. But could it have been better? Or at least funnier? Well, here's your chance to find out...

Is there any doubt that Arcade Fire can pretty much do whatever they want at the moment? The Montreal-based band has become nothing short of a phenomenon, with an ambition and reach far beyond that of their peers. So when it was revealed that they would follow their appearance on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend with a half hour concert, it was just another example of the far reaching vision for their music. And it went down last night, and if you missed it, here's your morning brew.

There's probably mixed feelings going around about the conclusion this Thursday, when the third film opens, of "The Hangover" trilogy. For some, the films have been among the most seminal comedies of their generation, making Bradley Cooper an A-lister, and introducing the world at large to the talents of Zach Galafianakis. For others, they've been increasingly lazy, misogynistic, fratty films the popularity of which will never quite be explained.

While David Bowie's new music video represents the very heights of the format, with ambitious visuals, important themes and high production values, then the latest from The Lonely Island is the counterweight to that. Goofy, hilarious, and probably shot in about two days, it might not boast the biggest ideas or highest aspirations, but it's still pretty rad.
