While the status of the next "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" movie remains unknown, there is still plenty coming forth from director David Fincher. Most notably is "House Of Cards," with all thirteen episodes of the series landing on Netflix on February 1st. And now it looks like he'll bring his razzle dazzle back to the commerical world where he cut his teeth for one of the most anticipated games of the fall.

It seems that with "Gangster Squad" pushed back for reshoots following the tragic incident this summer in Aurora, Colorado, Warner Bros. has decided to retool the marketing campaign a bit as well. And thus a new one sheet arrives that strives for an old school crime flick, but instead looks like a cheapie studio VHS cover.

While Disney has made no secret about the vintage video game/arcade leanings of their upcoming "Wreck-It-Ralph," when it comes to the first clip from the film, they are playing up the adorable elements instead to make sure seats are filled next month.

While we wait for Fox to convince Liam Neeson to return for "Taken 3," that they clearly want, for those of you looking for more low-rent, insipid action from the actor, he's got "Non-Stop" coming. It's just too bad he's bringing some other actors who deserve better down with him.

Last night at Peggy Siegal's "Argo" soiree in Manhattan, celebs and news luminaries were out in full force to celebrate director Ben Affleck's latest, a politically intriguing thriller and Hollywood satire based on true life events in the late '70s that were only declassified by the CIA 15 years ago.

Hurried into the the fall awards season race and set to open the AFI Fest next month -- does Fox Searchlight's "Hitchcock" about the legendary director (played by Anthony Hopkins) and the love for his wife (Helen Mirren), set against the backdrop of the making of "Psycho" have what it takes?

Well here's a rare treat from the usually money hungry Disney/Pixar. While we would have fully expected the short "Partysaurus Rex" -- which unspooled in front of screenings for "Finding Nemo 3D" -- to only be available in the eventual home video release for the converted movie, the studio has gone ahead and thrown it online. Nice.

"I thought if I could just execute this, even in the most straight down the middle way, I have the possibility of creating a movie that's really unique," Ben Affleck told us last night at the star-studded and swanky Peggy Siegal party for Warner Bros.' "Argo." "With really strong creative partners, I could so something that I'm really proud of. And to be honest with you, I feel this movie is better than anything I've even been involved with in my life."

If there's any justice in this fall festival season, "Rust And Bone" will be a major player. But with France submitting the much more old-people-pleasing "The Intouchables" as their official selection, it will make the climb all the more uphill for Jacques Audiard's latest. But come February, if Marion Cotillard at least manages to squeak out a nomination we'll be happy (we'd love one for Matthias Schoenaerts too, but that's not gonna happen).
