Well, if Martin Scorsese is looking to throw off any expectations people might have about his upcoming "The Wolf Of Street," he's doing a pretty good job. It's been a bit of an odd bunch assembled for the movie thus far, but apparently, we ain't seen nothing yet.

Oh yeah, "The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones," We nearly forgot about you. It seems this movie has been spinning its wheels, moving from on again to off again to on again over the past little while. But it seems some casting is now beginning to happen, and a new face is joining the film.

Critics were not kind to Lee Daniels' "The Paperboy" when it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last month. Reviews were vicious, and we called it "a lurid, florid, humid, flaccid and insipid waste of time and money for the audience and for everyone who made it." While the starry cast  -- Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron, John Cusack, Nicole Kidman, David Oyelowo and more -- combined with a retro story promised potential awards season material, that seemed to have been snuffed out by the film's reception on the Croisette. But don't tell that to Millenium Entertainment.

When Seth Grahame-Smith began to write the “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” he didn’t let the epiphany of a wacky title affect his dead-serious alternate universe story -- our 16th President, leader of the people by day, and slayer of the undead at night. Though he couldn’t have expected that the premise to catch the fancy of A-List filmmaker Tim Burton, who heard the title and experienced a brief flashback.

Amber Heard is in talks to join the thriller “Paranoia” as the female lead opposite everyone’s second favourite Hemsworth (well, except for Miley Cyrus we guess), Liam. The prolific director of “Killers,” “The Ugly Truth,” “Monster-in-Law” and “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!,” Robert Luketic, is the man behind the camera, and Heard joins a cast which impressively already includes Gary Oldman, Harrison Ford, Lucas Till and "Nip/Tuck" star Julian McMahon. Heard most recently starred opposite Johnny Depp in “The Rum Diary” and may be remembered by many for looking pretty in the likes of “Drive Angry,” “The Ward,” and “The Joneses.” This will finally give her a chance to act rather than be little more than an accessory, as she will play Hemsworth's love interest who happens to be his ticket to spying into a rival firm in the corporate thriller.

It was just yesterday we were talking about Joe Wright's "Anna Karenina," wondering if it would be hitting the Venice Film Festival in advance of its fall release, and lo and behold, it seems the marketing campaign for the movie is beginning to roll out.

While "Thor" will move on without him, Brit multi-hyphenate Sir Kenneth Branagh (yep, he was knighted this week) has certainly been kicking around plenty of other directorial efforts, including an adaptation of Henning Mankell's "Italian Shoes" with Anthony Hopkins and Dame Judi Dench, "The Guernsey Liteary And Potato Peel Pie Society" with Kate Winslet and an adaptation of Shakespeare's "Macbeth" as well as recently boarding the long-gestating Jack Ryan reboot with Chris Pine.

Disney has unveiled a series of character for this Halloween's "Frankenweenie," a black-and-white stop motion feature from Tim Burton and Disney that was based on a short film of his that got him fired from the studio back in the mid-eighties (seriously). The posters and characters look appropriately Tim Burton-y (maybe a little too much – some of the characters seem like slightly redressed designs from "The Corpse Bride" and the dog looks very "Family Dog"-esque). In other Disney animation news, the studio has quietly slipped a new "Cars Toon" short film onto iTunes and Amazon, which ties in directly to the new Carsland section of Disney California Adventure.

Review: 'The Invisible War' A Powerful Look At The Epidemic Of Sexual Assault In The Armed Forces

Be all that you can be. The few, the proud...the marines. Always prepared. Aim High. Those are just some of the slogans used over the years for the various branches of the United States armed forces, and they capture the combination of courage, selflessness and pride of the men and women serving their country. And while we can never doubt their service, there is an ugly problem underneath the surface that has nothing to do with military operations, but rather, with a culture that has fostered and failed to address abuse. Sexual assault is as epidemic in the U.S. military, and Kirby Dick's eye-opening and powerful "The Invisible War" shines a harsh light on the issue, one that reveals that the slow progressive attitude of the armed forces, still has a long, long way to go.

It seems like we've been talking about this film for years now, but it looks like there may have been some significant progression of the Don Cheadle-shepherded film about jazz icon Miles Davis. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal (via ShadowAndAct), Davis Estate heirs Erin Davis and Vince Wilburn Jr. have revealed that project will no longer see Cheadle at the helm -- as has been the plan for as long as we remember -- and that Antoine Fuqua is now slated to direct the picture that has previously been described as a '70's cubist gangster pic.
