Man, what does Bryan Mills have to do to get some rest? After dispatching a bunch of Albanians (who, as one commenter noted, are organized enough to round up all the bodies scattered from probable crime scenes all over the place for a mass burial) all Bry wants to do is chill with his wife Famke Janssen, maybe get some action of the horizontal kind (if you know what we mean), and bust some cold hangs in Istanbul? What could possibly go wrong?

While he may not be quite as well known on this side of the pond, over in the U.K. Plan B aka Ben Drew, is something of a big deal. As a rapper he first made waves with the mixtape Paint It Blacker, before making his debut with Who Needs Action When You Got Words. But it was his transition to soul with The Defamation Of Strickland Banks that landed him on the charts in a big way, but music isn't his only endeavor. This year the enterprising 28 year-old made his feature film directorial debut with "iLL Manors," an uneven but admirable drama that look at the lives of troubled youth (our review). But always multi-tasking, he's got the soundtrack for the movie finally on the way.

With the Cannes Film Festival now come and gone, and most of the major/buzzworthy movies acquiring some kind of stateside distribution (including Leos Carax's difficult and genuinely WTF "Holy Motors"), what's the deal with Xavier Dolan's "Laurence Anyways"?

Tyler Perry and lots of other people didn't like "Prometheus." Some other people did. And between the two there have been a lot of conversation about Ridley Scott's return to sci-fi and quasi "Alien" prequel about what it all means and where it could possible go from here. At any rate, when it arrives on Blu-ray, as expected, there will be plenty more to explore.

Williams, Carmen Ejogo, Tika Sumpter, Derek Luke, Mike Epps, Omari Hardwick and the late Whitney Houston in a music heavy remake of the 1976 film of the same name, you can bet the filmmakers behind this are hoping the same audience that turned "Think Like A Man" into a sleeper hit show up for this next month. And it certainly won't hurt having a start studded soundtrack.

We are now fifteen days away from all 2 hours, 44 minutes of "The Dark Knight Rises" hitting theaters, but until then, thanks to the super secrecy of Christopher Nolan and Warner Bros., brief snatches of new footage are what we'll have to be content with until then. But really, in the era of marketing that demands the whole movie be shown to audiences via clips and trailers, it's refreshing, so we can't complain too much.

Well, this was bound to happen sooner or later. With production underway on "Raging Bull II," MGM has pulled out the big guns, suing to not only halt the production of the movie, but also be awarded punitive damages “in an amount sufficient to punish the RB II defendants and to deter those who would commit or knowingly seek to profit from similar actions, now or in the future.” Ouch. But let's rewind on this a bit first.

Before the Cannes Film Festival even began this year, The Weinstein Company made their usual round of high-profile acquisitions, and among the more curious selections, a largely unknown Aussie flick called “The Sapphires” made its way into the mix. As more info was released, it became clear that TWC found the film to be exactly the crowd-pleaser they needed among their quirkier offerings, and now a few new images have hit the web to give a glimpse of exactly what caused the sale.
