Oh, so this is still happening then. "300: Battle of Artemisia" seems to have been brewing for a while now, but without the trigger really being pulled. The last we heard on this movie was back in March, but with a release date looming for late next summer, we suppose Warner Bros. are finally starting to get this thing rolling in earnest.

The success of the “Resident Evil” franchise should come as a surprise to no one. When Paul W.S. Anderson’s first film arrived in 2002 it already had its winning formula in place, which essentially boils down to Milla Jovovich in a tight outfit brandishing weapons against a horde of mindless zombie/thingies/cannon fodder in slow motion. Over the series more CGI was used, with the quality somehow never increasing, and 3D was added. This September sees the release of the fifth film, “Resident Evil: Retribution,” and we have nine new images from the film.

One of the stranger movie tie-in promotional items that, for some reason, continues to this day, is the novelization of the movie. Granted, when we were kids, movie obsession led us to read the book version of a film at one time or another, but do enough people care these days to make the investment in writing and publishing these efforts worth it? They must be, because the upcoming Jennifer Lawrence low-budget thriller "House at the End of the Street" is getting literary.

Exclusive online content is all the rage nowadays, ranging from Funny or Die clips to projects involving talent like Kiefer Sutherland, Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt -- the web is fast becoming a channel to be seen by many. Producer Bryan Singer is already bringing his "H+" sci-fi series to the web in August, but it was back in January we told you actor Tom Hanks would be producing an animated web series, "Electric City," and things looks to be shaping up quite nicely.

As studios, distributors, and filmmakers in general continue to look for refreshing new ways to have their work seen by as wide an audience as possible -- whether it be on television, digital shorts, etc. -- one of those potentially promising outlets seems to be the web series format. While we can't say that a particularly successful title sticks out to us at the moment (besides maybe the hilarious "Burning Love" created by Ken Marino), producer Bryan Singer looks to be offering up something that will surely entice the resident sci-fi enthusiasts.

If the name Andrea Riseborough isn't one you're overly familiar with, you might want to do the appropriate homework. The rising British actress broke onto the scene in 2010 with "Made In Dagenham," "Never Let Me Go" and "Brighton Rock" but didn't exactly earn much recognition as all three films failed to make a big impression. Madonna's "W.E.," in which Riseborough plays infamous heiress Wallis Simpson, also came and went, but the actress is fighting back, starring in "Shadow Dancer" and "Welcome to the Punch" later this year and is currently shooting "Oblivion" opposite Tom Cruise. And now, most excitingly, the actress is lining up a teaming with two of the biggest names going around.

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"?
