With lensing on his thriller "The Bitter Pill" with Channing Tatum and Rooney Mara likely nearing its end, "Magic Mike" already generating solid buzz and casting on his planned finale "Behind The Candelabra" kicking up a gear over the last week or so, the end is irrefutably near for Steven Soderbergh. Skeptics continue to doubt the filmmaker's planned sabbatical but among talk of bringing his fallen Cleopatra musical to the stage, an urge to focus on painting and the lack of desire to make "important" movies, it's clear Soderbergh has other artistic outlets on his mind.

Listen, the formula is pretty simple by now. Give Kevin James a blue collar job -- courier driver, fireman, mall cop, zookeeper -- make him fall down and eat snacks and then just collect the money that pours out the other end. Which brings us to "Here Comes The Boom," a movie where he's been assigned the role of...a high school teacher. But this time it's with a twist, not only does he fall down, he fights too.

How do you continue the Jason Bourne franchise without Jason Bourne? If you're Tony Gilroy, the writer/director behind "The Bourne Legacy" as well as the screenwriter who has been deeply involved in the Matt Damon-starring trilogy of films, you throw out any and all expectations. "What if there's a much larger story? What if Treadstone wasn't the only black-ops programme?" he told Empire. "I had never spent one moment thinking about how to do a sequel to 'Bourne Ultimatum.' I first came in for two weeks just to spitball. I had a very random idea...so we started with that and it got more and more exciting. All of a sudden I was staring at something that had a great deal of resonance and was soulful and uncynical and was also gonna kick ass. So that was good."

Hugo Weaving continues to switch up big blockbusters and smaller minded fare, and this time he's headed to Australia to star in "Mystery Road" alongside "True Blood" hunk Ryan Kwanten, Jack Thompson, Tony Barry, Tasma Walton, Damian Walshe-Howling, David Field, Trisha Whitton and Siobhan Binge. Written and directed by Ivan Sen ("Toomelah"), the picture will tell the story of an indigenous detective who returns home to find out who killed an indigenous girl. Kwanten will play a pig hunter while Thompson takes the role of an out to pasture pastoralist. Filming is already underway and Aussie distribution is locked up, but if you're an international buyer, give Arclight Films a ring.

On paper, the idea of a movie based on Lego sounds ridiculous and so easy to be exploited into a quick cash grab, brainless, toy brand blockbuster. But thankfully, the folks behind "Lego: The Piece Of Resistance" are putting their aims high for something that sounds like it's going to be a total blast. Anyway, we'll just fastforward to the good part: Batman and Superman are gonna be in this.

It has been quite a journey for everyone involved with Benh Zeitlin's "Beasts Of The Southern Wild." Bowling over audiences at the Sundance Film Festival and Cannes Film Festival, the magical film has also put two previously unknown faces -- Quvenzhané Wallis and Dwight Henry, in the lead roles, each making their first film -- firmly on the map. And now they're getting the attention of Hollywood with the latter now bagging a role in one of the most star-studded, highly anticipated dramas of next year.

After bringing a board game to life in this summer's bellyflop "Battleship," Peter Berg decided to give himself another challenge, one arguably harder than bringing a board game to the big screen: he has to make you belive that Adam Levine is a sensitive boxer. That's right, block your ears, because the new single by Maroon 5 "One More Night" is here with Minka Kelly filling in the role of the requisite piece of arm candy.
