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.

It's been over a year now since "Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows," and while director Guy Ritchie has been linked to a few different projects -- including "Treasure Island" and "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." -- he's been filling his time with commercial work. Last fall he dropped a "Call Of Duty: Black Ops II" spot with Robert Downey Jr. and now he's teamed with another superstar for yet another advert.

DreamWorks’ upcoming “Need For Speed” had already been busy lining up a pretty decent cast, and that was enough to make us optimistic that this video game adaptation might be the one to buck the trend. Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper and Imogen Poots were the big three so far to give their seal of approval and sign on to star in the Scott Waugh (“Act of Valor”) directed picture, as well as the likes of Rami Malek (“The Master”), Kid Cudi and Ramon Rodriguez. Now the film has gone and added an unexpected name to the cast. Who knows whether he just needs the pay-check or whether he too thinks there’s more to this project than meets the eye, but Michael Keaton will also be feeling the need for speed.

When ABC’s sitcom “Suburgatory” debuted in the fall of 2011, the show’s star, Jane Levy, immediately caught our eye. Last year, she was on our list of ten actresses destined for the big time and she has yet to disappoint thus far. She plays the lead role in the upcoming “Evil Dead” remake, which comes out in April, and now she’s got another big role to add to her plate.

One of the more interesting stories in the world of animation last year was the very public collapse of the Henry Selick's newest movie he was working on for Disney, something that was supposed to be the beginning of a very long and fruitful relationship for the "Nightmare Before Christmas" director and the studio. But, alas, the film that was at one point designed to be Pixar's first stop motion feature, completely fell apart after Selick continued to lock horns with the Pixar Brain Trust (whose story-comes-first mandate ruffled Selick) and Disney execs over the tone of the movie and its lack of narrative clarity. After building the animators a new studio and paying for a large chunk of the production budget, the project formerly known as "Shademaker" was indefinitely canceled Now comes word that the movie, now entitled "The Shadow King," is up and running again, this time produced by "Beasts of the Southern Wild" principle Josh Penn, with funding by K5 International.
