While the '70s were a musical stew of rock, glam, disco, punk and the early seeds of new wave and hip hop, there are few figures to emerge from the era who have endured quite like David Bowie and Iggy Pop. Together, they delivered some of the most iconic records of the era, and now someone wants to bring that story to the big screen.

It seems that what Nicole Kidman wants, Nicole Kidman gets. Last fall, the actress expressed a desire to reteam with Colin Firth, with whom she recently wrapped the WWII tale "The Railway Man," on the upcoming thriller "Before I Go To Sleep." And that's exactly what's going to happen.

As far as big-budget extravaganzas go, there are a few that keenly attract our attention, and one of them is the proposed adaptation of Jules Verne's "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" that Disney is potentially mounting with director David Fincher and screenwriter Scott Z. Burns. A large-scale piece of mainstream entertainment crafted by the duo behind edgier recent fare like "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" and "Contagion" is an intriguing idea. And when we talked to Burns about "Side Effects," his new psychosexual thriller directed by Steven Soderbergh (our review here), we had to ask him about the progress of Captain Nemo and the Nautilus.

Will, this is timely. Given the general slow drip of news and secrecy at the mouse house surrounding their upcoming "Star Wars" we had no idea that very literally moments after we had finished writing What The Stand-Alone 'Star Wars' Movies Mean For The Franchise & 5 Possibilities Of What They Could Be, well, we would kind of know what they will be.

There seems to be two kinds of weird going on at Disney. There's the "good weird" which results in the still somewhat shocking $1 billion dollar haul for Tim Burton's "Alice In Wonderland." And then there's the "bad weird," Andrew Stanton's dull, yet oddball, "John Carter." And now, their latest "good weird" hope, "Oz The Great And Powerful," is on the horizon, and if you thought flying monkeys were more than enough, how about a song by Mariah Carey?

It seems the release or premiere of Bong Joon-ho's "Snowpiercer" keeps getting closer and closer, and certainly it's one we're very excited about. The latest star-studded effort by the helmer behind "The Host" and "Mother" is beginning to show a bit more behind the curtain, and after some concept art and an official image, the first (non-sales) poster arrived.

It's probably safe to say that "Jack Reacher" didn't quite do the business that Paramount was hoping for. After Tom Cruise took "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol" to nearly $700 million worldwide, we can't blame anyone for thinknig that the actor had rebounded from bad publicity and middling efforts like "Knight & Day." So he was put in the lead of "Jack Reacher," a potential franchise starter that will likely wind up with nearly $200 million worldwide. Profitable for sure, but with Asian audiences essentially deciding if the series lives or dies, it's not the outing everyone involved was hoping for. Which brings us to Christopher McQuarrie...

It's been nearly two decades since Ausssies P.J. Hogan and Toni Collette arrived with the smash hit "Muriel's Wedding," which launched both the director and actress' career in big ways. Not only was the movie a crowdpleaser that connected with audiences everywhere, Hogan and Collette picked up BAFTA and Golden Globes nominations for their work, respectively. And while they've both been very busy since 1994 riding that wave of success to other projects, the pair are finally back together.
