We’re only in the second month of 2013 and while most of us have failed to meet our New Year’s resolutions, James Franco has already dropped two movies at Sundance -- the BDSM porn doc “Kink” and the “Cruising”-inspired “Interior. Leather Bar.” -- is in post on the Cormac McCarthy adaptation “Child Of God” and is signed up to direct two more films. Franco isn’t take a break yet, though, as Variety is reporting that he’s teaming up again with “Kink” helmer Christina Voros for a less pornographic documentary.

It seems like Benedict Cumberbatch is starting to get a taste for biopics of socially awkward computer geniuses who change the world. The "Sherlock" star is currently filming "The Fifth Estate," in which he's playing Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, and now he's lining up another hot role, in the shape of tragic mathematician Alan Turing.

I feel like I’ve heard this somewhere before. In a major world capital, a grudge match between rival gangs necessitates a street-level takedown involving the kind of guys one dreads running into in dark alleys, their thermodynamically dubious cars and an inexplicably low number of pedestrian casualties. Oh yep, that’s right, that was the last five "Fast and Furious" movies.

As usual, every year when the Super Bowl comes around, the ads that air during the big game wind up becoming one of the bigger talking points with everybody the next day. A recent trend for some of these advertisers lately has been airing commercials that tease their upcoming commercials that will air during the Super Bowl. Yes, commercials teasing about future commercials, what a concept. Samsung has decided to join in on this trend, but at least their teaser is amusing and features Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, and Bob Odenkirk.

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.
