Well, it's ambitions were certainly up there. First announced two years ago, we kind of totally forgot about "Rapturepalooza," but Anna Kendrick and John Francis Daley had signed on for a comedy that was aiming to be something like "Zombieland" meets "The Big Lebowski." But judging by this new trailer for the movie, the filmmakers missed the mark...and then some...

Already a movie we're predicting to be a Best Picture contender next year, George Clooney (fresh from his Oscar win as a producer on "Argo") begins production in Germany today on his World War II tale "The Monuments Men." The press release confirmed the cast that includes Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville and John Goodman, but it also included another tidbit, which is yet more reason to get excited for the movie.

Michael Haneke is one of Europe’s leading filmmakers and has produced some of the most powerful, unflinching films to come out of the continent over the course of the last 25 years. He’s a perennial favourite at Cannes and has two Palme d’Ors, a Grand Prix and Best Director award from the festival to his name, but it wasn’t until this year that he became better known to a much wider audience. That in part was surely down to the five Oscar nominations “Amour” received (including Best Director and Best Picture), but we’re betting it was mostly to do with that parody twitter account.

...and another one bites the dust. Granted, it all seemed pretty tentative anyway, but Sony will have to keep looking for a director to tackle their big screen take on "The Equalizer" as Rupert Wyatt has exited the picture.

Michael Keaton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, and Zach Galifianakis will star in Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu’s BIRDMAN.
Generally known for his tough, harrowing dramas like “Amores Perros,” “21 Grams,” “Babel” and “Biutiful,” we've been waiting patiently to see what Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu would be doing next. His options of late have included the con man/criminal drama "Flim-Flam Man" and the period vengeance tale "The Revenant," but it looks like his next feature will find him changing gears in and taking something a lot more lighthearted.

It seems as if after "Spider-Man 3," all the king's horses and all the king's men just couldn't put Spidey back together again. Famously, series architect Sam Raimi tried with an attempt at a fourth film featuring John Malkovich as the Vulture, with Anne Hathaway in an unspecified role believed to be the Black Cat. Chatting with Vulture (the site, not the villain) as his next film "Oz The Great And Powerful" opens this weekend, Sam Raimi he finally opened up about the aborted project, which was canceled in favor of last summer's reboot "The Amazing Spider-Man."

Quick! Who remembers that in 2010 "The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart optioned the life rights of Iranian/Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari for a feature film? Well he did, and now it looks like he's exercising those rights, by leaping into his directorial debut in a pretty surprising and exciting bit of news.

Kevin Feige Suggests "Django Unchained" May Have Killed A '70s Black Panther movie
Today's premiere of the third trailer for "Iron Man 3" (which starts hitting theaters around the world next month) has given us our best glimpse so far at Marvel's Phase Two -- the run of solo movies, including "Thor: The Dark World," "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "Guardians of the Galaxy," that will bridge the gap between last year's mega-hit "The Avengers" and its 2015 sequel. But clearly, the comic-company-turned-studio have plans beyond that, and assuming the films continue to be successful, we'll continue to see other side projects like the upcoming "S.H.I.E.L.D" TV show, and others besides.

We’re betting that pretty much every A-lister out there has an early acting gig that they’d be happy never saw the light of day. Unluckily for Anne Hathaway and Jean Dujardin, the internet will always uncover those embarrassing early jobs sooner or later, and their time is now. Take a look at a couple of early ads that the now Oscar-winners made before they were famous.
