Ten years ago this month, "The Wire" premiered on HBO. While the show was mostly met with indifference at first, was routinely ignored by the Emmys and almost always faced cancellation from season to season, the show has obviously posthumusly grown in stature and is now well-regarded as one of the greatest shows to ever appear on television. Created by ex- Baltimore police reporter David Simon with the assistance of former Baltimore police detective Ed Burns, in many ways, 'The Wire" changed the game of TV with its scope of vision and longtail patience.

Smart and scathing, unpredictable and hilarious, you never quite know where you're going with Todd Solodnz, but the journey and experience is usually one you'll never forget. It's been a few years since "Life During Wartime," the director's quasi-sequel to "Happiness," and he's once again shifted gears, returning with another oddball treat. His latest is a broader sort of comedy than we're used to from the helmer, but one that retains his signature touch.

Today "John Carter" will be released on DVD and Blu-ray and, presumably, will be seen by a much larger audience than what turned up it when it was released theatrically this past spring. (The Blu-ray is a handsome, features-packed affair well worth picking up if you feel any love for the movie.) The film, which Disney recently admitted would cost the studio $200 million in lost profit, quickly became a cautionary fable about what happens when you try to launch a franchise based on a century-old property that no one much remembers anymore. One of the film's stars, Willem Dafoe, who played a Martian warrior named Tars Tarkas, is still baffled by the critical and commercial indifference the film received.

With the novelty of Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing the same character now worn off after the unveiling of the first "Looper" trailer, all eyes turn to the film itself and its upcoming release. Marketing has been a bit of a mixed bag so far, and the latest peeks don't change that assessment, with an interesting new look at supporting players Jeff Daniels and character actor Noah Segen paired with a disappointingly nondescript poster from across the Atlantic.

You'd think The Wachowskis would have gotten their epic sci-fi trilogy kicks out of their system with "The Matrix" but evidently not -- the duo are gearing up "Jupiter Ascending," a planned kickstarter to a trilogy that is set in a universe where human beings are not the most evolved forms of intelligent life. With things reportedly due to get underway this fall, and on the back of Mila Kunis joining the flick, Channing Tatum has confirmed with MTV his own involvement in the ambitious project.

With every new piece of info that emerges surrounding director Randall Miller's rock 'n' roll tribute “CBGB," the more the film simply certifies itself as having a brilliant casting director in Richard Pagano. After Alan Rickman, Malin Akerman and Rupert Grint all found unconventional but intriguing roles as various mainstays of the famous New York club, the production continues its streak of inspired choices by adding a talented musician, a sitcom star, and a period-drama actress, among others, to the list.

J.J. Abrams just doesn't do conventional does he? The writer-director unveiled an early look at a Klingon from his upcoming "Star Trek" sequel during this past weekend's MTV Movie Awards but, rather than putting it on the MTV website or premiering it in footage during the show, Abrams decided to purposefully leave it on a television in the background during a skit.

The waters will rise and life on the planet as we know it will forever be changed. No, we're not talking about the latest environmental documentary, but instead about Darren Aronofksy's brewing Bible epic, "Noah," and with Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly and Saorise Ronan all booked for passage, a new pair of passengers (of the human variety) are joining them.
