Provided lawsuit happy, bonafide crazy person Courtney Love doesn't sue or get in the way somehow, as she usually does with anything vaguely attached to the memory of Kurt Cobain, this upcoming documentary sounds like it could be a great treat for music fans.

Looks like some actors who should be and deserve to be doing much better things are going to buy themselves a nice vacation or perhaps put a down payment on a second or third house, as they've lined up roles in the inevitable "The Smurfs 2."

While we wait to see what Alfonso Cuaron has in store with his hugely ambitious 3D sci-fi flick "Gravity" starring Sandra Bullock, George Clooney and lots and lots and lots of CGI, here's an opportunity to revisit one of his best films, "Children Of Men," with a bit of twist.

If any writers out there are feeling eager to dust off that old studio pitch -- the one you last gained hope in when “Ouija” was announced -- it might just be time for a revival, because today Warner Bros. has added a gallon of kerosene to the argument that they'll take anything nowadays.

Universal wants to be in the Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci business, and why wouldn't they? The writing pair are one of the hottest hires around town, having lent their pens to two "Transformers" movies, "Star Trek" and its upcoming sequel, and they were just hired by Sony to rewrite "The Amazing Spider-man 2." Unfortunately, the only project they did for Universal was the bomb "Cowboys & Aliens" but the studio is banking that their track record will score them another winner.

Rapper Kid Cudi moonlights as an actor every now and then, most recently popping up in a regular role on the (sadly) now-defunct HBO series "How To Make It In America" but it looks like he's also a keen cinephile, sampling Joe Cornish's "Attack The Block" on his latest track, a collaboration with producer Dot da Genius.

A little extra patience is all it takes, it seems. After the financial disappointment of “Hugo” reportedly divided Martin Scorsese and his producer Graham King, halting plans to bring his dream project “Silence” to the screen, we wondered whether the venture would ever recover given its long gestation, but it seems the European company responsible for “Il Postino” and “Life is Beautiful” has been waiting in the wings the entire time.

Well, if you can tell us the major differences between this green band trailer and the (not very) red band version that dropped last week for "Hick," you've got better eyes than we do. We're still not quite sure what made that previous trailer so naughty, but here's a cleaned up version you can watch at work along with a couple new stills from the flick.
