"Hey, let's give Mel Gibson a bunch of money to make a period based, swords-and-sandals epic about a pivotal moment in Jewish history!"....that's not a sentence you'll be hearing at Warner Bros. now or probably anytime soon, as the studio has put the brewing epic movie on hold. Can't say we're shocked.

It seems that Jennifer Lawrence can't get out of the woods. She made her name with a breakthrough performance in the Southern Gothic tinged "Winter's Bone," and is currently hunting children to the tune of major box office dollars in "The Hunger Games." And before she heads back to Panem, she's gonna get one non-blockbuster effort in the can.

Listen, we know the new Daniel Craig-led Bond series is grittier, more realistic and sober than the past incarnations, but if these new images from "Skyfall" are any indication, this is the most morose the world's most famous secret agent has ever been. Would it kill him to smirk?

Take A Peek At The Strange-Looking Cars In Michel Gondry's 'Mood Indigo'

Michel Gondry's "Mood Indigo" certainly isn't lacking in eccentricity. The film, which is now rolling in front of cameras, is based on Boris Vian's 1947 novel, "L'Ecume des jours," and tells the tale of Colin (Romain Duris), the wealthy inventor of an olfactory musical instrument, the pianocktail. He marries Chloe (Audrey Tautou), but unfortunately, she falls ill during their honeymoon thanks to a water lily that enters her lung, and the only way to treat the ailment is to surround her with fresh flowers -- and the expense soon drains his funds. Like we said, it's not the kind of logline you read every day. But of course, Gondry is kicking things up a notch.

We've deconstructed the trailer, explored the influences on the film as revealed yesterday by Wes Anderson and generally been a bit impatient for his latest, "Moonrise Kingdom," but this batch of new images should hold us over quite well.

As we're sure you've heard around the interwebs in the past few days, "The Dark Knight Rises" finally received its official PG-13 rating. That's hardly a surprise. What some nerds tuned into (and were turned on by) was the MPAA's caution that the film contained "intense sequences of violence and action, some sensuality and language." Sensuality!? Bat-boner! And well, maybe now we know why.

If you're still not stoked about another "Anchorman" movie, this quote from director Adam McKay should fix that: "The funny thing is we re-watched it for the first time in four or five years the other day. I had seen pieces of it on TV. But Will and I actually sat and watched the whole movie. When it was over with, we were like, 'We’ve gotten a lot better than that! [laughs]' "

The Stephen Frears-directed “Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Fight” has had no shortage of casting updates since things got underway back in February, with future “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” star Benjamin Walker joining the fold as Kevin Kennedy, a Supreme Court clerk who supported Ali and even wrote briefs that would help to maintain the boxer's status as a conscientious objector of the war, all in this tale of Ali’s trial following his arrest for anti-Vietnam sentiments and behaviour when drafted to serve in the war.

New Pics From 'Prometheus' Deepen The Mystery

Perhaps the most remarkable thing about the "Prometheus" marketing campaign thus far is that it has managed to be both breathlessly exciting with some of the best cut trailers of the year, but also relatively still deeply mysterious. While the broad strokes of the story are known, just where they will lead is anyone's guess. In an era that now counts teasers for trailers (the worst), motion posters and other novelties as ways to get audience attention, "Prometheus" remains fresh because its approach is almost old school, relying simply on images and trailers to do the work. And now a few more have arrived that deepen the mystery.
