As we recently wrote, Gerard Butler could probably use a new agent by this point or maybe just a better sense of material. "Chasing Mavericks" opens this weekend with zero buzz, and it will likely be just as quickly forgotten as "Machine Gun Preacher" and probably the upcoming "Playing For Keeps." But the actor will change things up and kick off the New Year as....a leprechaun.

Though "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2" have little in common except unnecessarily long movie titles, they are both franchises that are beginning and ending, respectively, this fall. And they both are trying to catch you at home as you try and find a "Seinfeld" re-run to tell you they are coming to theaters.

There are many reasons to already be stoked for uh, "Stoker," but principally among them: director Park Chan-wook, Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska and a score by Clint Mansell, all wrapped up in a promisingly Hitchcock-ian thriller. And now we have another bit of news that may sustain your excitement until the film is released next spring.

It seems Caleb Landry Jones has taken a shine to Canadian auteurs. The actor (known to most as Banshee from "X-Men: First Class") recently teamed with Brandon Cronenberg for his uneven, but still undeniably freaky and fun "Antiviral." And now he's joined up with a three-time Cannes attendee and rising young talent Xavier Dolan for his next effort.

While Daniel Day-Lewis is rightfully earning the most attention around "Lincoln" as he portrays the iconic President in Steven Spielberg's film, it's easy to forget that the picture is rounded out by a supporting cast of top-shelf actors. And now a fresh batch of new pics gives them a bit of shine.

Our distaste for comics writer and new 20th Century Fox creative consultant Mark Millar’s constant need to exaggerate is well-documented. While the man is certainly not without talent, his ability to ramble about projects that either never come to pass or arrive in a completely different form than he’s mentioned is uncanny, and sometimes he even comments on projects he has nothing to do with. Still, Hollywood loves adapting his comics like “Wanted,” “Kick-Ass,” and eventually “Nemesis,” and as we said, Fox pretty much just handed over the key to their Marvel heroes in some regards as he’ll be overseeing their films. Suffice to say, Twitter has aided Millar in spreading these exaggerations, and lately he’s been going on about his latest project, “Supercrooks,” which he now says is targeting an A-list star.

When you see the same name popping up over and over again, you know something's up. Such is the case with 25-year-old actor Miles Teller, who has enough of a baby face to genuinely pull off teen roles, plus the chops to back it up. He's had decent-sized parts in "Project X" and "Footloose," but where he's truly shined and where everyone in Hollywood must have noticed him was alongside Nicole Kidman in John Cameron Mitchell's deeply underrated "Rabbit Hole." Kidman earned her third Oscar nomination for Best Actress in the role of a bereaved mother and Teller plays the teenage boy who accidentally killed her young son with his car. Their scenes together are poignant and moving and Teller held his own.

Consider it an early Halloween gift from writer-director Eli Roth that news of his latest horror flick is coming at us fast and furious. As we already know, it’s been five long years now since Roth gave us “Hostel: Part 2,” a film that, like much of his work, proved to be incredibly divisive, but certainly provided evidence that the relatively novice horror auteur was starting to branch out in his career – even if the sequel felt a bit like a spinning of the wheels. He’s spent the last five years starring in buddy Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglorious Basterds,” and producing everything from hits like “The Last Exorcism” to Chilean earthquake terror “Aftershock” (which he also acted in), but now he really is stepping back behind the camera.

Occasionally when, in the midst of press rounds for other projects, an actor or director reveals an entire film has been shot under the radar for immediate release -- Noah Baumbach's “Frances Ha” or Joss Whedon's “Much Ado About Nothing” comes to recent memory -- the effect is sublime, eliciting a buzzing anticipation for the soon-to-be-approaching result. Then there's times when the news just settles into a hesitant simmer, such as when actor and playwright Jack Plotnick recently announced cast and plot details of his completed directorial debut, “Space Station 76.”
