Stephenie Meyer is hoping to strike franchise gold again next week when "The Host" is unveiled. Directed by Andrew Niccol, it's another supernatural tale with a beautiful young girl, caught between two L.L. Bean models as the fate of the world or something hangs in the balance. And while the "Twilight" soundtracks openly courted hip, indie acts, the tunes collected for "The Host" don't quite reach the heights of the songs for the vampire series, that managed to snare folks like Thom Yorke and Vampire Weekend.

The Irons family are really cornering the market when it comes to big screen YA adaptations in 2013, with father Jeremy hamming it up to great effect in "Beautiful Creatures" and son Max soon to be seen as one of the leads in Andrew Niccol's "The Host." Not content with simply having a truly badass name, Max Irons has clearly got his eye on a big Hollywood career, and if "The Host" comes anywhere close to matching the phenomenon that the last Stephenie Meyer franchise did, he could be well on his way. And if not, well, he already has a role in "Vivaldi" lined up, and now he's added another, in the shape of Lone Scherfig's "Posh," to his schedule.

When you're one of the greatest filmmakers of all time, your life is likely to be thoroughly documented by others, and that's certainly the case for Akira Kurosawa. The director behind "Seven Samurai," "Rashomon," "Ran" and many, many more seminal works has been boxed, written about, discussed at and more, all at length, but his work is so rich and influential, there is always more to discover. And for those looking for a bit of a film class to start of their week, you can perhaps spend your lunch hour on this.

Terrence Howard Says Marvel Tried To Kill His Career & One-Sided Contract Led To His Exit From 'Iron Man' Series

Ever since it was revealed that Terrence Howard wouldn't be reprising his role in "Iron Man 2," ultimately replaced by Don Cheadle, there has been plenty of ink spilled about why the actor was bounced from the Marvel universe. Way back in 2008, EW reported that circa "Iron Man," it was Howard -- not comeback kid Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow or Jeff Bridges -- who was actually the best paid actor on that set. The first one to sign on, Marvel wasn't able to renegotiate his deal, but perhaps found another workaround. Rumors suggested that Howard was being difficult on set and/or the filmmakers weren't happy with his performance, leading to early drafts for "Iron Man 2" minimizing his participation. So when Marvel circled back to the actor for "Iron Man 2" with a much lower offer than the first movie, well, we'll let Howard take it from here....

That Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner" had a troubled production is no secret, with currently four different versions of the movie -- 1982 Theatrical Version, 1982 International Version, 1992 Director's Cut and 2007 Final Cut -- all readily available for those who truly want to dip into the tweaks and changes made along the way. However, uncovered notes from a pre-screening of the film for producers perhaps offer the most entertaining insight into what the filmmaker was up against in making the movie.

After Warner Bros. promised to back a "Veronica Mars" movie if fans raised $2 million within a month and the Kickstarter campaign proved more than successful (it currently sits at $3.6 million raised), there is no official word on whether the studio will help fund the film (they have agreed to distribute and market the effort) or if the Kickstarter campaign will make enough for it to be a fully self-sufficient production. Regardless, they have already raised well beyond the $2 million they sought, and the production team plans to use the additional money to make an even better product.

Trance, James McAvoy
While he’s been talking up the film all over the place over the past week, Danny Boyle’s mind-fuck thriller “Trance” doesn’t arrive in theaters until next month. If you’ve already heard some of Rick Smith’s score and still need something to hold you over until April, three new clips from the film have arrived online that are sure to make the wait even more unbearable.

It would seem that Gemma Arterton has a thing for the works of author Posy Simmonds. The actress sashayed across the screen in Stephen Frears' adaptation of the writer's "Tamara Drewe" a couple of years back, and now it looks like she's set to lead another one of Simmonds' books as it heads to the movies.
