Update (03/05/13): To add a further nail to the coffin, Joss Whedon was asked by IGN during a junket for "Much Ado About Nothing" as to whether it was true that "World War Hulk" and "Planet Hulk" would provide inspiration for future Marvel movies. The director responded "Well, I"m not really supposed to comment, but no, that's nonsense." There are denials aimed at keeping things vague, and then there are denials because something's just untrue, and this seems to be the latter. As you were.

A batch of stills from each “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: His” and “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Hers” have provided the first major break in the case of the mysterious two-part project. For those of you who haven’t heard, the loftily titled pair of features is a two-part set from writer-director Ned Benson starring Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy as a husband and wife with a failing relationship. One film will tell the story through the eyes of the husband, a restaurateur, while the other film sees the events through the eyes of the wife, who goes back to college.

It can safely be said that Harvey Weinstein no longer needs to try too hard. After nudging “Silver Linings Playbook” and “Django Unchained” toward their Oscar wins Sunday night, and even snagging FLOTUS to deliver the Best Picture award? No need. But the famed producer's key to success is persistence, and he's now moved to award another filmmaker's for his.

Those who have been waiting for the next Stephen Gaghan (“Syriana”) film have probably lost their patience by now. It has been almost eight years and his latest project, “Candy Store,” has enough potential big names rumored to be involved it can tantalize you: The project has had Brad Pitt, Denzel Washington, Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz all circling or being offered roles with Christian Bale, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, and Bradley Cooper on various wishlists. But last fall, Chris Hemsworth was the first to check in and now another name has joined him.

As much as the “Star Wars” series of films were (and J.J. Abrams' will definitely be) adept in keeping details close to the vest, the extensive documentation of all things to do with the franchise was nothing short of astounding. However, “The Empire Strikes Back” yielded some fly-on-the-wall footage that, while entertaining, remained largely locked in a vault. Luckily not for too long more, though, as a great deal of it has come to light.

Steven Spielberg could use a bit of a break. Cranking out three films over the last few years -- mo-cap and animated "The Adventures Of Tintin," WWI epic "War Horse" and presidential tale "Lincoln" (which walked away with two Oscars on Sunday), one might understand if would rather be watching movies instead of making them. And with his "Robopocalypse," originally planned to shoot this summer, now on hold as he gets the script right, it looks like Spielberg will be taking a little cinematic vacation to the south of France.

While he didn't walk away with an Oscar on Sunday night, Bradley Cooper isn't lacking in forward momentum. Next month he starts shooting his next collaboration with David O. Russell, the untitled Abscam movie (which could be in the Best Picture race next year), and by the end of May he'll have two more movies in theaters: Derek Cianfrance's searing "The Place Beyond The Pines" and trilogy capper "The Hangover Part III." And he's been lining up project after project (which we'll get to in a moment) with one more tossed on the pile.

Okay, so this isn't exactly news if you've been keeping up, but with Johnny Depp generally commiting to a thousand projects all at once, it can difficult to shake out his schedule. But the actor's reps have cleared his calendar and revealed the two movies that will be taking up the bulk of his time in 2013. And neither of them involve the name Jack Sparrow.

Well, there will be no other movies this year that will make a leak/leek pun, so in that regard, "Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2" stands alone. But it's also going to be the only movie this year with food that talks. And swims. And drives boats.

"But what will I wear in jail?" That's the pretty tagline ready question asked by Lisette Lee, the socialite drug baron, when she was arrested in 2010. From the outside, she looked every bit the "Korean Paris Hilton," as she called herself, claiming among other things that she was the heir to the Samsung fortune and/or a pop star. But to the feds, she was a major drug dealer and her story is now going to be a movie, naturally.
