The old men of summer are back, having rubbed in the gallons of Ben-Gay and endured the hernias for "The Expendables 2," the most expendable movie since the last one. And now a new clip has come along to highlight just how potentially terrible this will be.

As regular readers already know, we'll pretty much watch anything with the talented Rebecca Hall, and while her choices can sometimes be spotty ("Lay The Favorite," "A Bag Of Hammers") she's always a worthwhile presence. And thus our interest in the period-horror piece "The Awakening," which on the face of it looks fairly standard but as the trailer reveals, promises to be something with a bit more meat on its bones.

Jonathan Caouette made a name for himself some years back with his debut feature "Tarnation," a manic, prodding look into his family, created on the cheap using home videos and the trusty iMovie program. His stock blew up, and a successful screening at the Sundance Film Festival eventually lead to him helming the "All Tomorrow's Parties" documentary and a personal horror short "All Flowers In Time."

Frankly, you could shoot Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn doing their taxes, then mowing the lawn and having a nap, and we'd probably watch it and love it. Those dudes crack us up ("Wedding Crashers" rules, "Starsky & Hutch" is pretty hilarious) so thank God for Shawn Levy (wow, never thought we'd type that out) for bringing them together again in "The Internship." And he's not skimping on the supporting cast either.

Bet you forgot all about this one. Don't worry, so did we. First announced just over a year ago, "The Two Faces Of January" has some very strong talent behind it. First off, it's got a script by "Drive" writer Hossein Amini, and second Viggo Mortensen -- who is pickier than a five-year-old at a salad bar -- signed on to star. And then? Nothing. Financing was needed. But it looks like things are starting to happen, as casting is gearing up again with a start date now in sight.

Zoe Aggeliki Inches Closer To 'Catching Fire'; Jackie Chan To Kick People In English; Cloris Leachman Joins 'Raging Bull II' & More

Todlja? We guess? Even though we first reported Zoe Aggeliki was in the mix for the role of Johanna Mason in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" a week ago, with EW tossing Jena Malone as a contender in there a few days later, Deadline has buried their head in the sand a bit and dropped an exclusive that Aggeliki is now in talks. Okay, but we kind of knew that a while ago -- as of last week, she was apparently close to signing, and from what we hear she's 'Catching Fire' director Francis Lawrence's number one choice. But whatever, this moves the needle slightly more in her direction we guess. Either way, her Google ranking has likely gone way up in the past week.

As 'The Dark Knight Rises' Prepares To Open Huge, A New TV Spot Lands; Has A Press Release Given Away A Surprise Appearance?

With "The Avengers" now sitting pretty as the third-biggest money-making movie of all time, many started wondering -- even back in April -- if Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" would match Marvel's impressive tally (not that box office means anything in terms of movie quality, but we digress...) Well, it looks like it will. Almost.

There are different kinds of magic. Everyday occurrences, for example, are full of mysterious moments that may be beyond reasoning: coincidences, fate, déjà vu. Like falling in love with a stranger, only to find out that he lives next door. Of course, there’s the flat-out supernatural, the kind that only happens to a select few, and the Harry Potter/Gandalf variety too. Talking, walking, pothead teddy bears and fantastical creatures rising from melted ice caps would fall into that latter category. However you see it, there’s magic waiting for you in the cinemas this weekend. Double, double toil and trouble. Abracadabra. Lumos!

Over the past little while, we've seen a couple of documentaries come along that shed light onto some intriguing avenues of the entertainment world, such as "Paul Williams: Still Alive," about the '70s personality/songwriter/multitasker, and "Being Elmo," which focused on the man behind one of the most lovable creations on "Sesame Street." And now, another look at unique performer will be making its way to viewers later this year.
