As if Marvel couldn't top 2012, which has seen them release the blockbuster "The Avengers," start filming "Iron Man 3," and flip the switch on "Guardians Of The Galaxy," they've gone ahead and added Lizzy Caplan to the their cinematic universe. Well done, Marvel, well done.

Over the years, there have been numerous bands and artists that are as synonymous with their work as they are with New York City, and in recent memory few have been more connected to the Big Apple than LCD Soundsystem. James Murphy's celebrated band served as an unofficial soundtrack to the city, the ambition of its youth, the summer nights that blended into the morning, its disappointments and its surprises. As you well know, the band broke up with a helluva goodbye, with a four-hour blowout at Madison Square Garden in February 2011. But the tributes keep rolling in for a band that will not soon be forgotten....

John Sayles is still churning out films on a fairly regular basis, and his most recent effort “Amigo” got its limited release in theaters in August last year. Starring Chris Cooper, Garret Dillahunt and Dane DeHaan (“Chronicle”), the film was moderately well received, but grossed a tiny $184k from its release on a maximum of 10 screens. To say it was small would be an understatement. But such is the state of financing these days where guys like Sayles are left on the sidelines. But, keen to keep his fanbase updated with plans for his next film, Sayles has taken to his blog to speak about his upcoming 18th feature.

'The Inbetweeners' Being Prepped For An American Movie Remake Now Too

So, let's straighten this all out. First there was the BBC hit comedy show "The Inbetweeners," about four young lads who are interested in the kinds of things young lads are usually interested in: alcohol and sex. The show gained a strong following, but no one could have predicted that the "The Inbetweeners Movie" -- released last year and coming to the U.S. in September -- would become the highest growing comedy in the U.K. of all time. And of course, a remake came knocking, with MTV set to unspool the Americanized version of the show in August (get a first look here). But wait, there's more.

The first time the indie-rockers Devotchka penned a score to a movie, they made a pretty big splash with the killer soundtrack to Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris' "Little Miss Sunshine" that they co-wrote with composer Mychael Danna ("Moneyball"). It's been often imitiated and certainly often-reused (just give a listen to "The Winner Is" below which has become a type of go-to score for indie-film trailers). Devotcka frontman Nick Urata composed most of 2009's "I Love You, Philip Morris" score by himself and he's done the same for his reteam with Dayton and Faris, "Ruby Sparks."

Craig Gillespie To Direct Will Ferrell Comedy 'The Flamingo Thief'

2011 wasn't kind to Craig Gillespie. His remake of "Fright Night" was unfairly ignored (c'mon, it featured an awesomely smarmy Colin Farrell and was a bit of goofy fun with some decent thrills) and then in the fall, he dropped out of the forever developing "Pride And Prejudice And Zombies" (and we wonder about that movie ever getting made considering audiences didn't seem to care about "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter"). But, it's summer 2012 and Gillespie now has something brighter on the horizon.

So, will Brian De Palma's "Passion" be a long awaited return to form or another ambitious disappointment? Well, we'll still have to wait and see, but we'd be lying if we said that the images released thus far haven't been making us excited. And now you can add one more to the pile.
