Everyone seems to be talking to director Alexander Payne these days thanks to the festival success of his latest feature, "The Descendants." That is, except for The Playlist (*bitter tears*). Such is life. The director recently sat down with both the New York Times and L.A. Times for in-depth profiles, and while Payne hasn't made a feature-length film since 2004 ("Sideways"), both outlets remind us he's still been busy.

Few filmmakers seem to have as much on his plate as Guillermo del Toro. He always has a plethora of projects threatening to occupy his time, this is even though the director hasn't had a film in theaters since 2008's fantastical superhero tale "Hellboy II: The Golden Army." He recently spoke with Wired Magazine, ostensibly about the conclusion about his lackluster vampire trilogy "The Strain" (co-written with original "Town" author Chuck Hogan), and he talked about a number of things that he has coming down the pipeline, including acknowledging the involvement of a Guillermo del Toro regular in his new monster movie.

Bummer! Though once mooted for the lead role that eventually went to Jamie Foxx, Quentin Taraninto has long had his eye on Michael K. Williams (aka Omar from "The Wire") for a role in "Django Unchained." The actor himself chatted up the prospect of starring in the movie, saying earlier this year that the director was writing a part for him and following that up shortly thereafter with the tease that his participation looked "good to go." But a long time has past since, with a ton of casting along the way and unfortunately, Williams won't be in the film.

The second highest grossing movie of all time, winner of 11 Academy Awards and the movie that launched the careers of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, this is no denying that James Cameron's "Titanic" was as big as the iceberg that sunk the fabled ship. And now, on the 15th anniversay of the movie's release and the 100th anniversary of the ship's maiden (and final) voyage, "Titanic" is wading back into theaters, this time in 3D.

With a career spanning over four decades, with a new movie every year, there has never been a filmmaker both as omnipresent and mysterious as Woody Allen. Despite being thrust in the public eye thanks to his wildly popular films -- this year's "Midnight In Paris" is one of the highest grossing of his career -- and for the scandals that have surrounded him, the writer, actor and director has always played it close to chest when it comes to his process, influences and thoughts on his films (other than his own low regard for his work, and his repeated claim that once a movie is finished, he never watches it again). Well, the director is opening up as he never has before in a sprawling "American Masters" documentary hitting PBS this weekend, and a trailer has arrived to give a sneak peek.

As we already know, Chris Tucker doesn't work very often. 1995's "Friday" launched the comic actor's film career thanks to his hilarious turn as the pot loving Smokey, but while the film became a hit spawning two sequels -- "Next Friday" and "Friday After Next" -- Tucker went on to other things, mostly involving Brett Ratner. Next year will mark a decade since the last installment in the franchise, but it looks like New Line wants to take another puff.

It's been a bit of a disappointing 2011 for Pixar fans. The famed animation studio spent the year spinning its wheels both creatively and figuratively "Cars 2," the second straight sequel from the studio built around orginal ideas, with two "Toy Story" shorts making their way to theaters as well. But don't worry, 2012 finds the company not only returning with their first original film since "Up," it will also the first picture from Pixar to feature a female protoganist. And in case you doubted that Pixar still had the goods, the newest trailer for the film that just hit Facebook is as dazzling and exciting as you might expect.
