So far, the marketing for the film has impressed with a solid trailer and a pretty great illustrated one sheet, and now there are a couple more looks that are worth your attention.

While the rumors pointed to involvement in "Star Wars 7," it looks like many folks misread the tea leaves for Colin Trevorrow. While an interview from this summer where he talked about tackling a grand "mythology" seemed to give currency that he was taking on George Lucas' franchise, in recent weeks Trevorrow has been trying to distance himself from the hotly buzzed new trilogy, before telling THR outright: "It’s not going to be me for Episode VII, and I can’t believe I’ve actually had to come out and say that." However, he is taking a Disney project that is certainly beloved by many of certain age.

First Angelina Jolie as the Queen in "Maleficent," and now Cate Blanchett in "Cinderella"? Well, one thing is clear—Disney is hoping these high profile actresses can be the big draw in the reimaginings of their classic titles.

"I think it's the story of a lifetime," director Kathryn Bigelow told ABC's "Nightline," and there really is no other way to put it. The result of years of intensive, mostly under the radar, highly classified work, the nation -- and world -- were shocked when in May of 2011, Barack Obama announced that Osama Bin Laden had been killed as the result of a clandestine operation. It helped close the book on a painful memory in the American psyche, and in many ways forced a new look at the war on terror. And while you might know how it ends, you don't know how it happened.

Hugh Grant may have branched out for the first time in who-knows-how-long for “Cloud Atlas,” but don’t think for one minute that he's done with his main revenue stream – rom-coms. Grant is attached to star in an as yet to be titled rom-com about a witty, sexy Englishman (you know Hugh) who is riding high in the late eighties after having won an Academy Award For Best Screenplay. Fifteen years later everything’s gone wrong for him though (maybe he bedded a hooker and lost all credibility, who knows?) and now he’s divorced, broke, and creatively bereft. Thankfully, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel though, and that light looks set to be Marisa Tomei.

The first two months of the New Year are usually viewed as a dumping ground, but in recent years critical and box office success stories like "Shutter Island" and "Safe House" have shown that it's a quiet frame where genre fare can do tremendously well. That's why we're not worried an iota about Steven Soderbergh's forthcoming "Side Effects," which got the ball rolling a few weeks ago with a pretty fantastic first trailer. And while things are on the down low for the moment, a few more stills from the movie have popped up.

Well, this just got a whole lot more interesting. With the upcoming 'X-Men' movie featuring a plot that involves time travel/time jumping to a certain degree, many wondered if this new series would reach back to the first trilogy of films that were capped off by "X-Men: The Last Stand." And now there is a pretty clear argument that it will likely happen.

Tonight is the night that, all the way around the world in New Zealand, things will be getting underway for the world premiere of Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey." It has been a long road for the film, originally slated to be directed by Guillermo Del Toro who moved on as the project stalled, before finally getting revived as MGM pulled themselves out of bankruptcy. It was supposed to be two films, turned to three, and just like that a new trilogy is kicking off and will start the LOTR fervor around the world all over again.
