It's hard to belive that it was seven years ago when Justin Timberlake dropped FutureSex/LoveSounds, his chart topping sophomore album, but since then the pop star turned actor, lining up parts in a wide range of films from the B-movie sleze of "Black Snake Moan," to the comedies "Bad Teacher" and "Friends With Benefits," to the sci-fi "In Time" and the baseball drama "Trouble With The Curve." And while 2013 will see him appear in the Coen Brothers' "Inside Llewyn Davis," Timberlake is headed back to where he started, with a new album The 20/20 Experience dropping in the spring. And he's roped in the helmer who helped him achieve his finest performance to date, to lens the first video for the album.

Vanity Fair’s 2013 Hollywood issue is kind of the gift that keeps on giving. It not only has an awesome oral history of “Pulp Fiction” (highlights of which you can read here), but it also has some pretty in-depth and juicy profiles. But, the most tantalizing is about Megan Ellison, the 27-year old daughter of the third richest man in the U.S. She’s rumored to have been given a bankroll as large as $2 billion from her Dad on her 25th birthday (though her reps deny the figure), with the movie buff using the amount to help bankroll her slate of films.

Denzel Washington has made quite a name for himself as an actor over the decades, and continues to be one of the more bankable Hollywood stars around even as he approaches 60. What might be more overlooked when it comes to Denzel is his relative success as a filmmaker. His previous directorial efforts, “Antwone Fisher” and “The Great Debaters” may not have been as successful financially as his other movies, but they did receive their fair share of critical notices. Now, it looks as if Denzel Washington is eyeing a return to the director’s chair once again.

Two years ago Gareth Evans was the unknown director behind a little seen Indonesian martial arts movie but after “The Raid” premiered to raves as part of the TIFF Midnight Madness slate, a lot of doors have opened for the Welsh-born helmer. One of those doors is the second entry of a proposed trilogy under “The Raid” title with Iko Uwais reprising his role as Rama. As you read this cameras have already started rolling with Uwais already bashing a stunt guy’s head into a wall and a series of new stills from the set has arrived.

If Pedro Almodovar needed to do something lighter after "The Skin I Live In," and perhaps a movie not as layered as "Broken Embraces," we understand. And indeed, he's gone and knocked out a movie closer in spirit to his more anarchic early work ("Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown" is said to be a comparison point), than his later projects. "I'm So Excited" is all big colors and bold music and a new trailer has arrived to serve up another little teaser.

As crazy as this sounds, we don’t have the best memories of the last time we saw Penelope Cruz wearing little more than some lacy lingerie while singing. In fairness, that’s nothing to do with Cruz herself, but more that said singing in lingerie was taking place during Rob Marshall’s tedious musical “Nine.” Cruz is back singing in her lingerie again, and the result is an altogether more pleasant one – she’s teamed up with the Grammy-winning Michael Bosé on a single from his debut album, Decirnos Adios. You can watch Cruz performing the song (which was composed by her brother Eduardo) in the video below and see whether you think her singing is on a par with her acting.

Jeremy Renner had an interesting 2012. He featured in two major franchise movies -- "The Avengers" and "The Bourne Legacy" -- yet didn't seem to get much of a bump from either. And while "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" opened at number one last weekend, it's not a movie anyone involved is going to be proudly touting. However, 2013 may finally see him live up to that pair of Oscar nominations. He has a role in James Gray's period drama "Lowlife," and he's getting ready to shoot David O. Russell's Abscam project alongside Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Amy Adams, and now he's lined up another project that is also very promising.

Last fall, a project entitled "The Other Woman" cropped up with Cameron Diaz linked to star, and Kristin Wiig was said to be "under consideration" for the co-starring role. And then nobody heard anything about it again. But the movie has popped back up and Diaz is back in the mix, with a director now ready to take the helm.

Studios continue to hunt the great white whale of the young adult franchise. With "Twilight" over, "The Hunger Games" is the only player in town, but 2013 brings two contenders to the fore: "Beautiful Creatures" which we're only watching because of Emmy Rossum and "The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones" whose title we don't understand. "Divergent" with Shailene Woodley will get in front of cameras later this year, and now Disney is eager to get into the ring.
