"Ghostbusters"
What is there left to say about "Ghostbusters" that hasn't already been said in the three decades since the movie landed in theatres, spawned a franchise and became an instant nostalgia touchstone for people of a certain age? Perhaps it's a good time to remind folks that for all the warm and fuzzy memories, Ernie Hudson (aka Winston) had a pretty crap time making the movie. After signing on, he saw his role in the movie significantly reduced to almost half of what was in the original script, with the longstanding rumor that Eddie Murphy originally sought the part (though Ivan Reitman long denied this) leading the studio to minimize Hudson's role.

As usual, Ridley Scott is juggling five thousand projects at once. He's currently wrapping up "Exodus: Gods And Kings" for release later this year, and this fall he'll begin rolling on the sci-fi film "The Martian" starring Matt Damon. But what about the long developing sequels to "Blade Runner" and "Prometheus"? Well, Scott promises both are coming, and he says that at least from a writing standpoint, they are ready to go.

Still Alice
Looking at the slate for the Toronto International Film Festival, it can be easy to overlook smaller movies that may not have the same buzz as higher profile titles. But if you take a closer look, you'll find films with big names just waiting to be discovered, and one to keep an eye on is "Still Alice."

The Cut, Fatih Akin
The Venice Film Festival kicks off tomorrow, and among our 10 Most Anticipated Films of the fest is Fatih Akin's "The Cut," but it's arriving on the Lido with a bit of baggage. Earlier this year, a minor stir resulted when the filmmaker pulled his movie from the Cannes Film Festival citing "personal reasons." It was inevitable Akin would be asked about the decision, but as it turns out, the explanation isn't quite as controversial as you might think.

The Knick
We really hope the Television Academy's nominating committee's collective memory lasts longer than it seems to in the coming year, because Steven Soderbergh's "The Knick" deserves plenty of Emmy love (read our review). The period based medical drama expands into a look at the upper crust, underclass and sectors in between during the turn of the century era in New York City. Soderbergh directs as if he's rediscovered his love for storytelling, Clive Owen is doing arguably the best work of his entire career, and tying it all together is Cliff Martinez's score.

The Connection
There are few films about the battle between Johnny Law and drug dealers that can measure up to "The French Connection," so if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. That seems to be Cédric Jimenez's operating principle, as his forthcoming "The Connection" is a Euro flavored take on William Friedkin's classic. The movie is headed to the Toronto International Film Festival for its world premiere, and the first international teaser trailer is here.

Gone Girl Ben Affleck
Of all the moving parts in David Fincher's upcoming mystery "Gone Girl," the spot occupied by Rosamund Pike may be the most complicated. A lot of the film's narrative revolves around her role, a victim of a crime that puts her husband on the defensive and sends the media swarming, but you never hear the character, Amy Dunne, speak. The actress reveals an interesting inspiration for her role: Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, JFK Jr's wife.
