The success of "The Avengers" doesn't seem to have made Marvel complacent when it comes to landing top-flight talent for their upcoming projects, even if it's presumably at their usual cut-price rate. The company, flush from their first billion-dollar hit, are gearing up to shoot "Iron Man 3," directed by "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" helmer Shane Black, in the next few weeks, and have assembled an impressive haul of talent to join the returning trio of Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle.

At this point in time, Jude Law seems to have found his place in the Hollywood star system. He's been cropping up in movies for over fifteen years, but he was always more of a character actor than a leading man, and when pushed into more traditional star roles, in films like "Enemy At The Gates," "Cold Mountain" and "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow," he always sat a little uncomfortably. But these days, he gets to play second fiddle in the mega-hit "Sherlock Holmes" franchise, a far more natural fit, which gives him the freedom to tackle quirkier supporting roles in films like "Contagion."

File this under: for completist nerd soundtrack obsessives only (which we sadly fall into quite snugly). OK, you've seen the tracklist for Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom," which features artists like Benjamin Britten, Françoise Hardy, Hank Williams and more. And based on various accounts from Cannes this morning, including our own very positive revew from the Croisette, "Moonrise Kingdom" is certainly Anderson's live-action return to form. We can't wait.

A host of trailers have arrived in the last 24 hours, and it being the start of Cannes, and one of the busier days of the years, we've done a little round up of them for you below. First up, Bradley Cooper is sporting some sweet dreadlocks in the new trailer of the Dax Shepard-written action comedy, “Hit And Run,” which is co-directed by Shepard and David Palmer. The actor, currently part of the ensemble in NBC’s “Parenthood,” is no stranger to being behind the camera: he was previously behind 2010’s “Brother’s Justice,” again with Palmer as a co-director.

Last we heard, Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck had signed up to star in the thriller “Runner, Runner” with “The Lincoln Lawyer” helmer Brad Furman set to direct. At the time there were few solid details on the plot other than that it would take place in the high stakes world of online gambling, but now Entertainment Weekly is reporting that “Project X” breakout star Oliver Cooper has officially joined the project, signing on to star opposite Timberlake and Affleck.

Alan Rickman is, as we're sure you're aware at this point, one of our finest actors. From "Die Hard" and "Truly Madly Deeply" to the 'Harry Potter' series, he's consistently stolen the show in the finest tradition of British character actors. Now that the Potter franchise has wrapped up, Rickman's got a bit more time on his hands, and after wrapping "Gambit" with Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz, has just signed on, according to the Hollywood Reporter, to "CBGB," a biopic of Hilly Krystal, who founded the seminal New York City punk club, for writer/directors Randall Miller and Jody Savin, with whom Rickman worked previously on "Bottle Shock."

Alfred Hitchcock seems to be firmly in the zeitgeist at the moment: the British Film Institute is showing an extensive retrospective of the director's work later in the year, and the next twelve months or so will see not one, but two biopics of the legendary master of suspense. The first, "The Girl," is made for British television and focuses on the relationship between Hitch and his "The Birds" star Tippi Hedren, with Toby Jones playing the director and Sienna Miller taking on the actress's role.

Is there anyone whose worked with a more diverse range of helmers in recent times than Isabelle Huppert? Probably not. Brilliante Mendoze, Hong Sang-soo, David O. Russell, Michael Haneke, Joachim Lafosse, Oliver Assayas, Raul Ruiz, Anna Fontaine and Claire Denis are just some the folk she's teamed with over the last decade or so, and only this morning she added David Gordon Green to the list, signing on to his remake of "Suspiria." And hot on its heels, another European helmer is now added to the list, in the shape of "Vincere" director Marco Bellocchio.

“Battleship” helmer Peter Berg certainly has a personality we’d describe as brash, whether he’s spouting out ideas for sequels to “Hancock” or making an argument as to why his upcoming blockbuster has little to do with the board game it shares its namesake with, he’s a filmmaker who likes to have his opinions be heard away from the cinemas where his films are played. While “Battleship” has certainly received some flack for its overtly jingoistic approach to the military, we have to admit that being proud of those in the armed forces is all well and good, until you start forcing your stance on others.
