It was just last week that we were discussing the ability of “Wreck-It Ralph” to end the creative slump Disney’s internal animation division has been in for over a decade ever since the ascendance of Pixar -- though the company has stumbled as of late -- and now it seems the Mouse House is doubling down on the original animated film.

Very few films, and even fewer debut features, have reached the same mass pop cultural awareness as Jared Hess’ “Napoleon Dynamite.” Unfortunately, none of Hess’ follow-ups have matched his first film in either box office or critical success. His next film, however, may at least see him back in multiplexes the world over as he brings in Jim Carrey as his leading man.

"People were shrieking, screaming, laughing, and generally going ape," we reported from the floor of the New York Comic Con this weekend. And while that may be true before and after the trailer for the "Evil Dead" remake, during it you could hear a pin drop as fans waited to see if Sam Raimi had delivered something worthy of his original more than three decades ago. And judging by the crowd's reaction, this may be a winner.

We have to admit, we were beginning to wonder what was going on with Neill Blomkamp's expensive, mysterious "Elysium." With a release dating looming about five months from now and no posters, teaser trailers, stills or any other kind of marketing, we figured either that a) Sony was going to start a blitzkrieg campaign once they were done with "Skyfall" or b) it was getting pushed back. Now we have our answer.

If the Oscars are the grown ups table, then the Golden Globes have usually been the looser, more gravy-stained kids table of the awards season and in 2013, two very funny women and friends will combine forces to hand out a bunch of awards.
