Stick a cork in your list of best soundtracks of the year right now, it might be done. Unless, by some miracle, something unexpectedly happens (and or Hans Zimmer just blows us away with "The Dark Knight Rises"), one major contender for soundtrack of the year is the score for Benh Zeitlin's well-celebrated indie picture, "Beasts Of The Southern Wild." Already lauded at Sundance (where it won Best Narrative) and Cannes (where it picked up the cinematography prize), we recently placed the film at the top of our Best Films Of Year... So Far list and we'll tell you: believe the hype, it's well-justified.

Well, it looks like Sony is very happy with "Hotel Transylvania," the animated monster mash that could be a graveyard smash when it opens in September, since the studio has just tapped the film's extremely talented director, Genndy Tartakovsky, to take on a big screen animate update of "Popeye" (according to Variety). Also, a couple of new "Hotel Transylvania" images have been released – so put your paws together for that, too.

While Marvel continues to dominate the comic book movie world both in terms of bringing the characters to life and reaping some serious financial rewards ("The Avengers" crossed $600 million domestic this week), it pays to remember that there are many characters the studio doesn't have the rights to (for example, many of the X-Men, Wolverine, etc.). And it appears The Human Fly is one of them as a movie is now on the way about that character.

We’re not sure that author Bram Stoker would’ve ever imagined that the characters in his beloved novel “Dracula” would one day be considered multi-billion dollar franchise properties. Though it doesn’t just stop at the titular character – played most famously by the one and only Bela Lugosi – but also the man who was always hot on the heels of the fanged phantom; Abraham Van Helsing.

Now that we're midway through the summer season, we're sort of champing at the bit for the arrival of the fall: "The Dark Knight Rises" and "The Bourne Legacy" aside, there's not a lot in the coming months that's really floating our boat, unless something like "Total Recall" or "The Watch" proves to be a pleasant surprise. And in part, it's because the fall's looking so promising -- long before the heavy hitters at Christmas, even the normally dead zone of September looks chock full of pleasures, with "Lawless," "Gangster Squad," "End Of Watch" and "Killing Them Softly" all looking exciting to one degree or another.

At the recent Los Angeles press day for “Magic Mike,” which tells the story of a successful stripper who takes a newcomer under his wing, there were a lot of questions about thongs – certainly more than are usually asked at a press conference. But with director Steven Soderbergh at the helm of the film and the center of the panel of contributors who brought it to life, much more was ultimately discussed than just where the cast purchased their undergarments, and how they chose the ones that they felt best represented their characters’ personalities.

With a May 2, 2014 release date already set, and Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci hired to pen the script, barring some kind of box office meltdown, a sequel to "The Amazing Spider-Man" is pretty much inevitable. And even though Sony probably already has an option on him (and the rest of the cast) for sequels, when asked by THR if he would like to return for Part Two, Andrew Garfield gave the answer anyone could have predicted. "If we do one, I hope I can do it -- I hope they'd let me do it. I hope so," he said, adding cheekily, "I think we want to get this one out. They already have a release date for the second one. But no script! So we have our priorities in order."
