Everyday, from the around the world, we receive images in our newspapers, magazines, inboxes and online articles dispatched from some of the most dangerous places on Earth. Usually accompanied by an article or text giving an overview of the situation from whatever far flung place the pictures are coming from, we're usually on to the rest of our day before that image has a chance to linger. And given that the media tends to work in cycles, while situations in places that made headlines months ago may still be evolving, reporters in general are on to the next thing. But that's where "Witness" comes in.

If there is one movie that Warner Bros. prizes and loves above all others in their catalog, it's "Casablanca." The classic movie that even people who don't like classic movies adore, it has become an American cinematic institution, and a film that WB has re-re-re-re-released countless times on home video over the years. The film endures as one of the all time greats, so of course, that means sequels and followups have been tossed around for years.

We've seen a lot of set pics over the past few months of various actors dropping in to Terrence Malick's "Knight Of Cups" and his untitled music-set movie now filming in Austin. But Val Kilmer wins the prize for having the best snaps of any the stars caught on camera. Of all the people who are going to end up getting cut from this movie, here's hoping he isn't.

Given the hoopla arond Disney's announcement of a new trilogy of "Star Wars" films, it's no surprise that fans are digging into the vast archives of tidbits George Lucas and co. have given to press about the series over the past thirty-plus years. While Lucas himself has been cagey with the press -- both confirming and denying that there are more stories to tell in that universe over the years -- around the release of "Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi" in 1983, Mark Hamill was under the impression that there were going to be three trilogies.

Here's what we know so far about Edgar Wright's "The World's End": it's the final chapter of the Cornetto Trilogy. It stars Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Rosamund Pike, Martin Freeman and Eddie Marsan. And the story involves friends who reunite after twenty years to go on an epic pub crawl, only for the fate of humankind to somehow cross their paths. And with production currently underway, a few more intriguing morsels about the film have emerged.

Perhaps this is why plot details were being kept guarded? Among the many political issues that earn hot-button status, stem cell research is near the top. But basing a $120 million movie starring Johnny Depp around the subject? That's pretty damn ballsy.

Sadly I dont do tweeter. I denied being involved in JLA but ['Heaven Sent'] I would love to do!!!"

Even if "The Master" isn't quite the breakout hit that "There Will Be Blood" was, it is undeniably one of the most talked about movies of the year. Paul Thomas Anderson's film continues to spur discussions and debates, and conversations are nothing less than passionate. The picture is one whose enigmas last long after the viewing is over, encouraging and demanding a second or third viewing, and luckily for fans, there will be even more to dive into on the forthcoming DVD and Blu-ray release of the film.
