After a brief pause from acting in the past year, actor Jesse Eisenberg is slowly finding his way back onto cinema screens, most recently in Woody Allen's latest, “To Rome With Love.” That isn't to say the actor's been lounging off his Fincher cash though, as a first glimpse from his starring Sundance entry, as well as details of his second off-Broadway-penned effort, have shown up to provide two different sides to the actor's work.

With "The Dark Knight Rises" around the corner, lensing on his directorial debut "Don Jon's Addiction" underway and "Looper" and "Lincoln" due to be unveiled this fall, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is up for quite the year. And there's one lesser, JGL-starring vehicle that's certainly making the most of his presence: David Koepp's"Premium Rush," which now has a fresh new poster. The film looks, at best, like a fun little thriller, and sees the actor play a bike messenger who gets hold of a the wrong package with Michael Shannon on his tail. The film hits theaters on August 24th.

Christmas movies, don’t you just love ‘em? Last year we got the child-friendly “Arthur Christmas” and the not so child-friendly “A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas,” but it looks like we should expect to see something very earnest at one of the next few Christmases. Fox Searchlight are prepping “Black Nativity,” a film based on Langston Hughes’ gospel musical, which first played on Broadway back in 1961. According to Variety, the story follows “a young black teen from Baltimore who is sent by his single mother to Harlem to spend Christmas with the grandparents he’s never met. Through his grandfather’s Christmas Eve sermon and a stylized, dream-sequence retelling of the classic Nativity story, he learns the importance of faith and family.”

Well, it's official: "The Amazing Spider-Man" is going to be a huge hit. With over $50 million already in the bank from overseas, "The Amazing Spider-Man" kicked off in North America on Tuesday with a record-breaking $35 million and is now on track to earn upwards of $140 million by Sunday night. Not bad for a movie that cost a reported $220 million. Even more, viewers 18 and under are giving the flick an A- CinemaScore, meaning that the studio's efforts to re-brand the franchise for a younger audience who may not be familiar with Sam Raimi's trilogy has been a success. And with a sequel already dated for May 2, 2014, it seems the studio is already looking beyond that.

Over the past day or so, the Twittersphere has been buzzing about the various set pics that have landed for "Caught In Flight," aka the movie where Naomi Watts is playing Princess Diana. And with good reason. She looks remarkably like the late royal, to the point where it's a bit eerie. But perhaps to quell the unofficial images and/or build on the buzz, the filmmakers behind the movie have dropped the first official pic, and yeah, it's still pretty impressive how much they look alike.

The Internet movie blogosphere hit a pretty embarrassing low a few weeks back when a terribly scanned black-and-white "first look" image of James Franco in "Oz: The Great And Powerful" started making the rounds. It was, at best, equivalent to the quality of a shaky cell phone pic, but it seems everyone is really jazzed for this movie. Either that, or it was a slow news day. Anyway, Disney has gone ahead a dropped the first official poster for the movie, but sorry folks, no Franco here.

While Neill Blomkamp and his team have done a fantastic job of keeping pretty much everything about his upcoming sci-fi flick "Elysium" under wraps, the time for show and tell is soon arriving. Sony recently confirmed the film will be part of their one and a half hour presentation at Comic-Con in a few weeks, and a little sneak preview of sorts has arrived.
