If you have anyone in your family who is English or French, or if you have a friend who is a diehard football (soccer) fan, you already know that England is playing France today in opening rounds of the Euro Cup. It's easily one of the biggest matches of the tournament (at least so far), between two major rivals, so it's makes sense to put a new TV spot in there for what will be one of the biggest movies of the year as well.

Has it been three years already since the increasingly tired and boring rumors and speculation about "Ghostbusters 3" have been kicking around? Well, despite the fact that no one except Dan Aykroyd seems interested in making this thing, Bill Murray is pretty much the lynchpin if this movie ever moves forward. But that won't happen until the script is brought up to par, which has pretty much been the story since day one.

Given how long this film has been brewing, we'd been worried that like so many projects, it might be stuck in development hell or have trouble finding financing. But the good news is that Jim Jarmusch's vampire film "Only Lovers Left Alive" is still happening, and has added one more name to the already fantastic cast.

With "Young Adult" barely out of our minds, lensing is excitingly already underway on Jason Reitman's next directorial effort, an adaptation of Joyce Maynard's coming-of-age story "Labor Day." The project has now added a trio of talent with Alexie Gilmore ("World's Greatest Dad"), Lucas Hedges ("Moonrise Kingdom") and Brooke Smith ("Grey's Anatomy") all joining in unnamed supporting roles. The story centers on an escaped convict (Josh Brolin) who is taken in by a depressed single mother (Kate Winslet) and her teen son (Gattlin Griffith) over a Labor Day weekend with Clark Gregg, Tom Lipinski, Maika Monroe, Brighid Fleming and James Van Der Beek also co-starring.

Long before the upcoming “The Amazing Spider-Man” pressed the reset button on the lucrative Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire-era of films about our favorite web slinger, there was talk of a standalone film starring Spidey’s arch nemesis Venom. Having been portrayed by “That ‘70s Show” veteran Topher Grace in the poorly-received (but still financially successful) third entry in the Raimi-helmed series, Venom was a product of the blend of a black symbiote suit that turned Spidey to the dark side along with Peter Parker's rival Eddie Brock.

Music fans, rest assured. Tom Cruise, a bunch of garish costumes and set design, and the hair metal tunes from "Rock Of Ages" won't be your only option this weekend at the movies. For those looking for a more satisfying musical outing, head to your local arthouse for "Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap," a documentary that explores the birth of hip hop and how it has turned into a global phenomenon.

Terrence Malick, a director who not long ago was famed for the vast lengths of time between his film releases, now has no less than three (or is it four?) projects at various stages of development. In fact, we’re constantly having to remind ourselves which film is which when a new piece of information arises. Well some new pictures have turned up from a Malick set and they feature Cate Blanchett, Christian Bale and Natalie Portman so by a process of elimination we’ve worked out that we must be talking about “Knight of Cups.” Oh, wait, they’re all starring in his untitled movie as well, aren’t they? See how this can get confusing!

As a youth, Ed Zwick must have really enjoyed history class as films with a period setting and/or stories set to the backdrop of war or conflict are a recurring theme in his work. Despite a gear change with "Love And Other Drugs" in 2010, Zwick looks to be returning to his bread and butter with "The Great Wall," a China-set historical epic.

Albert Hughes just can't catch a break with casting for his latest effort, "Motor City." After a lengthy search for a male lead that saw names like Chris Evans, Dominic Cooper, Jake Gyllenhaal and Jeremy Renner all linked before Gerard Butler jumped on board, the project has now hit another wall, losing its villain and female lead.

The return of Spike Jonze is an exciting prospect on its own but with Joaquin Phoenix as his lead and three leading ladies along side him in Amy Adams, Rooney Mara and Olivia Wilde, we're delightfully anticpating his upcoming, untitled project. Apparently centering a man who falls in love with a Siri-like computer voice presumably on an iPhone device, we now have a couple of set photos of a mustached Phoenix running around a subway station before lazing around on a Manhattan beach.
