It took 17 years for “The Simpsons” to finally make their transition from the small screen to the big screen, and the result was a crushing disappointment. Few would argue that the animated cartoon has been consistently at its best in this century, but that’s probably because it set such a high bar for itself towards the end of the nineties. The film though was weak even by later season standards, and there’s hardly a been a clamor for America’s favorite yellow family to return to cinemas in the five years since.

"Just when we think Korine was out of twists, he's come with another one, so we wonder what's coming next," we wrote at the end of our last update about "Spring Breakers," which was recently revealed to have electronic dance music guy Skrillex providing some music for the movie, with celebrated music supervisor Randall Poster (the Wes Anderson movies) also taking part. And as we expected, another surprise, with a big musical name now also throwing his weight in there as well.

We placed Brie Larson on our list of actresses poised for the big time earlier this year, and with good reason. Larson has slowly been amassing an impressive CV, breaking out as Toni Colette's daughter in the Showtime series "United States of Tara," and making memorable turns in "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World," Oren Moverman's powerful "Rampart," and this spring as the object of Jonah Hill's affection in "21 Jump Street." And she's been piling on one promising gig after another with roles in Peter Bogdanovich's "Squirrel To The Nuts," "Relanxious" with Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis, and "The Spectacular Now" with Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller, all coming up. And now she's adding another movie to the pile.

This summer, you're gonna be getting a whole lot of Tom Hardy. And to cap off your week, here are two new trailers for his latest efforts, which mostly boast the same stuff we've seen before. But hey, it's Friday, and if you want to get out of work on time, better to stay in your cubicle/office fucking off on the internet than possibly running into your boss in the hallway, right?

With a release date now just over a year away, the wheels are beginning to turn a bit quicker on the long-developing "The Mortal Instruments." A couple of weeks ago, French actress Jemima West joined the film's leads Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell-Bower, and now two more actors are aboard in some small, villainous roles.

We were pretty much champing at the bit to see "The Corrections," an adaptation of the book by Jonathan Franzen, acclaimed by many as one of the greatest Great American Novels of the last couple of decades. Under the shepherding hand of super-producer Scott Rudin, with a home at quality-factory HBO, writer-director Noah Baumbach ("The Squid And The Whale," "Greenberg"), practically a perfect fit for the material, was bringing it together. And he rounded up a top-flight cast including Chris Cooper, Dianne Wiest, Ewan McGregor, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Greta Gerwig and Rhys Ifans, with the prospect that the show would run for four seasons of ten episodes each.

After unveiling a rather sumptuous trailer last month, the slowly building marketing campaign for Joe Wright's promisingly dazzling "Anna Karenina" continues, now with a new poster for the movie that puts Keira Knightley in the path of an oncoming train. Anyone who's read the book will know what that means.

Happy belated Independence Day, movie fans! Now that the barbeques, firecrackers, and sunburns have subsided, we can’t think of a better way to ring in America’s 236th birthday than with a trip to the theater. This weekend, you can celebrate with an excursion high above the New York skyline, competition in an amateur Olympic event, and a shootout with drug dealers. Or perhaps you prefer a haunted house? And all while Katy Perry’s “Firework” rings out across the twilight’s last gleaming. Happy Fourth (or, you know, Sixth)!

If you're one of the many who are strongly anticipating "The Dark Knight Rises," you've likely already bought your IMAX ticket, booked the day off work/are planning to call in sick, told your significant other your cellphone will be turned off and you'll be unavailable, circled the date on your calendar, and have been quietly ticking off the days until it hits theaters.
