We've seen set photos, promo pics for magazine spreads and screengrabs from blink-and-you'll-miss-it moments from HBO's 2013 teaser, but finally the first official look at Matt Damon and Michael Douglas in "Behind The Candelabra" has arrived.

With Steven Soderbergh stepping away from the director's chair, we'd argue that David Gordon Green is one of only a few American filmmakers who share his spirit of cinematic adventure. He's helmed everything from no-budget indie dramas to big, mainstream studio comedies. Last month, Green hit the Sundance Film Festival with his latest, "Prince Avalanche," a remake of an Icelandic movie no one has heard of. And for his followup? A gritty Southern drama with Nicolas Cage and "The Tree Of Life" star Tye Shreridan.

Not so long ago, we were wondering why the actors who've starred in the recent BBC revival of "Doctor Who" haven't had more success transferring to the big screen. The first of the three to date, Christopher Eccleston, who only played the part for a season, has probably been the most high profile, thanks to villainous turns in "G.I. Joe Retaliation" and the upcoming "Thor: The Dark World," but they're the same kind of parts he was playing before in films like "Gone In 60 Seconds." David Tennant, a very different kind of doctor, had more promise, but his hopeful breakout, "Fright Night," flopped, and he's returned to British TV and UK comedy movies.

Bryan Cranston & Elizabeth Olsen Are In Talks For Legendary's 'Godzilla' Reboot

Legendary Pictures' expensive "Godzilla" reboot has been having a rough time in the public eye of late. It's scheduled to go into production soon, but the production company is embroiled in two lawsuits; one with the producers Dan Lin, Roy Lee and Doug Davison who claim they are being booted from the monster movie by Legendary. It's near the 11th hour too and "The Shawshank Redemption," "Walking Dead" writer/director Frank Darabont was brought on board to do a final rewrite on the movie. And then there's the actors who have publicly passed on the lead role, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and others who have evidently been offered the lead (Aaron Johnson) who haven't responded in almost a month (our guess is Johnson also passed). So, is "Godzilla" in trouble? Or is it just business as usual with tentpoles that seem to put the horse before the cart these days?

So the fifth entry in the wheezing "Die Hard" franchise comes out in just over a week, and surprisingly, it's taken this long for the inevitable talk about a sixth entry to crop up. But with Bruce Willis on the press trail, the question has been asked, and the answer from the actor is simple: "Yes."

Wong Kar-Wai Says Cuts To 'The Grandmaster' For International Release Are Minor, Done For Clarity

We have to admit, we took a bit of a pause when it was revealed over the weekend that Wong Kar-Wai had snipped fifteen minutes from "The Grandmaster" as he prepped the movie for its international premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival tomorrow. Was it pressure from distributors? A director who has worked on this movie for years who doesn't know when to stop? As it turns out, the real reason for the cuts is something far more banal.

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.
