Two films, picked up by Sony Pictures Classics circa the Sundance Film Festival and Cannes Film Festival, have now been slated for awards season contending release dates, and it's fair to say both could have a shot at some kind of Oscar recognition.

Back in 2007, "I Am Legend" grossed $585 million worldwide for Warner Bros. Costing only $150 million -- kinda modest for a major tentpole these days -- the Will Smith-starring post-apocalyptic actioner also grossed $126.2 million in DVD revenue, making it the sixth best-selling DVD of 2008. Not too shabby, right? Plus, the film plays on cable all the time and those rights must have also cost a pretty penny. So in the logical, brand-obsessed bean-counting world of Hollywood, a sequel would seem like a natural move.

While the summer season in 2012 features a lot of men dressing up in tights, the dudes in Steven Soderbergh's "Magic Mike" flip the script by taking off their clothes instead. But they're not going out to fight crime. Instead, they're melting hearts and making some fast money at the same time. And if you want to know how wild this movie might get, two red band TV spots are here to give you a taste.

It's rare for two films as perfectly pitched and utterly delightful as "Before Sunrise" and "Before Sunset" to come along, but can Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy and Richard Linklater three-peat? That's going to be the big question as news of the proposed followup has once again reared its head, and should it actually turn out to be fact, we could be seeing it very soon.

From a based-on-a-true-story drama to an action vehicle... Nothing really brings these two movies together, other than the solid talent being added, so let's get right to it...

Spike Lee Talks About Making Documentary On Michael Jackson's 'Bad', 'Go Brazil Go'; 'Oldboy' Is Still Waiting For A Green Light

For every "Girl 6," "She Hate Me" or "Miracle at St. Anna" in filmmaker Spike Lee's oeuvre there's not only a great feature to offset it ("25th Hour," "He Got Game," "Inside Man"), but several, fantastic documentaries ("4 Little Girls," "When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts" "If God Is Willing and da Creek Don't Rise") as well. One could even argue if Lee's feature career got a little uneven later in the game (which is still very debatable), his documentaries -- some of them his best work, period -- never faltered.

It's interesting to watch how fortunes change. For a while, it looked like John Madden would never be able to match the critical and commercial acclaim of "Shakespeare In Love," with a string of ill-received and underperforming films like "Proof," "Killshot" and "The Debt." Which brings us to 2012. Madden is back on top with "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," which has brought in over $110 million worldwide, so no surprise he's now attached to a film with one of the hottest -- literally and figuratively -- actresses of the moment.

The comic-book revelation of the week: the Stark Tower and the Oscorp Tower almost shared a Manhattan skyline in Marvel's "The Avengers" earlier this summer. What does that mean for those not fluent in poindexter-ese? It means the events from Columbia's upcoming "The Amazing Spider-Man" almost crossed over into the same New York universe where "The Avengers" took place.

It has been quite a while since we've last seen a film from Cannes Palme d'Or winner and celebrated international filmmaker Chen Kaige ("Farewell My Concubine," "The Promise"), but this summer the director's latest will finally land in America.

Not only does "The Dark Knight Rises" cap off Christopher Nolan's Batman franchise, it marks the end of an era of sorts for both the director and cinematographer Wally Pfister. They've both done some incredible work on the series (and all of Nolan's films), but it now looks they are changing up the working relationship.
