In the wake of the awful tragedy in Aurora, Colorado, it was revealed earlier this week that Warner Bros. had decided to remove a sequence from the Ruben Fleischer film “Gangster Squad” that featured gangsters shooting through a movie screen toward an audience and that the studio was already planning reshoots in order to make the then-locked-in September 7th release date.

20th Century Fox has been taking an unconventional approach to themarketing for "Life Of Pi" so far. After a showing at CinemaCon that wowed delegates and press alike, the studio chose to eschew more traditional trailers in favor of showing three brief clips from Ang Lee's much-anticipated adaptation of Yann Martel's beloved best-seller in front of their big 3D summer releases, to emphasize the dimensionalized aspect of the picture. And so footage was shown in front of "Prometheus," "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and "Ice Age: Continental Drift." But they had to release something for a broader audience at some point, and unheralded, the first proper trailer for the film arrived online early this morning via Apple.

Can you blame Warner Bros.? "The Dark Knight Rises" puts Batman to bed for the next few years, and aside from "Man of Steel" next summer, the studio doesn't have any more comic book movies until at least 2015. In 2013, Superman aside, they have a guaranteed hit in "The Hangover Part III," but everything else? It could be argued it's up in the air.

One of the best pleasant surprises of the initial Toronto International Film Festival announcement this morning? The surprise reveal of a new Noah Baumbach film. While Baumbach, the filmmaker behind "The Squid and the Whale," hinted to us in a recent interview that something was up his sleeve, we didn't imagine it was something we'd be seeing so soon.

Shed a tear, because the Batman franchise under the stewardship of Christopher Nolan is now over. In our most recent podcast we've discussed where another Batman movie may go, and what we hope Nolan gets up to next, but the director himself has taken a quick pause to reflect on what he has created in the three movies that have ended with "The Dark Knight Rises."

With filming starting two years ago and then going through the typically lengthy post-production cycle Terrence Malick's projects usually require, after a long wait, "To the Wonder" was announced this morning as part of the lineup for the Toronto International Film Festival, where it will make its North American premiere. And until now, only the broad strokes of the story have been known to this point.

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.

Juno Temple is very much the woman of the moment. Last weekend, she cropped up in "The Dark Knight Rises" -- somewhat wasted, inarguably, but still there -- and this weekend, she gives one of the most electric performances of the year in William Friedkin's "Killer Joe." And, as if to hammer home how much in the Zeitgeist the young British actress is right now, a trailer for her next film just arrived, in the shape of a promo from Magnolia Pictures for "Jack And Diane."
