"Fifty Shades Of Grey." Even if you haven't read the erotic fiction novel by British author E. L. James, it's inescapable in pop culture references these days and you've likely at least heard jokes about it you probably don't understand yet. Described as a "Twilight"-inspired erotic novel about a about a steamy bondage and S&M relationship between a wealthy Seattle businessman and a virginal young college student, the novel has sold ten million copies worldwide and book rights sold in over 37 countries.

As we were just mentioning this afternoon, "Green Lantern" is a huge blemish and disappointment for Warner Bros. Launched just as WB were putting the finishing touches on their super lucrative "Harry Potter" series ($7.7 billion worldwide), the studio was hoping "Green Lantern" would be the beginning of a chapter in leveraging DC Comics super hero properties in the manner their competition (Marvel Studios) had already been successfullly doing and beyond the likes of flagship characters like Batman and Superman. In fact, "Green Lantern" was very much akin to "Iron Man." A B-level character far from a household name, Marvel did the unthinkable, remade the character into their A-list star property. Utilizing a similar, humor-filled approach not so dark and brooding as Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises," "Green Lantern" seemed to take some of its basic cues from "Iron Man," only missing all marks by miles.

Will Warner Bros. 'Justice League' Be "Dark & Mature"? Pathological Exaggerator Mark Millar Says Yes

If J.J Abrams, Christopher Nolan, Damon Lindelof and Ridley Scott are viewed as being on the secretive side about revealing plot details and information regarding their unreleased, often still-in-development movies, one then must consider comic book writer Mark Millar to be on the exact opposite end of the spectrum. While not exactly in the movie business like the four aforementioned artists, several of Millar's comics  (such as "Supercrooks" and "Nemesis") are in development at various studios and production companies. Seemingly very enthusiastic to be a part of the Hollywood process, Millar is very amenable to telling you pretty much whatever you want to know about any of his projects in development, going as far as to make wild casting announcements (like when we said Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt were being approached for "Nemesis") and generally claiming unrealistic start dates to any project under the sun (all of them).

Viggo Mortensen chooses his roles carefully and selectively. Before last year's "A Dangerous Method," he hadn't been seen on screen since 2009's "The Road." And indeed, we're not going to see to much of him in 2012. While his performance in Walter Salles' "On The Road" is strong, it's also quite brief, but fans of the actor will be delighted to know, his next effort will have them seeing double.

Well, this is a bit curious. Maggie Gyllenhaal has never really been a tentpole/blockbuster kind of gal, and aside from Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight," she's mostly stuck to the indie/drama route. But it seems blowing up the White House with Roland Emmerich is just too good an opportunity to pass up.

Well, the first trailer for "Django Unchained" dropped yesterday to much fanfare, but as most folks already know, Quentin Tarantino's films tend to be packed with references both overt and subtle to the movies that he loves or have had an influence on him. And when it comes to his latest, the first clue can be found right in the title.

We've run out of clever ways to introduce this, so let's get to the point of what "Magic Mike" is really all about: hot, buff, oily and raw dudes who take their clothes off. That's it. And if you need more proof, a huge batch of new images from the movie have dropped.
