It's been hard to know what to expect from Paul Schrader's "The Canyons," a collaboration with writer Bret Easton Ellis that features the unlikely leads Lindsay Lohan and porn star James Deen. And certainly, this first teaser trailer (well, the first one to feature actual footage) certainly isn't what we would have predicted from the movie.

Two films enter, one film leaves! Dueling "Snow White" pictures made way for dueling Alfred Hitchock pictures in 2012 (oh, how Hollywood loves to battle with itself). And the verdict may already be in. The version focusing on the master of suspense's releationship with Tippi Hedren staring Toby Jones and Sienna Miller, "The Girl" screened this weekend at the Hamptons International Film Festival and our reviewer wasn't overly impressed (however some other reviews have been a bit more generous). That leaves "Hitchcock," which centers on the making of the groundbreaking psychological horror film, "Psycho." The synopsis so far is rather vague, but provides enough to keep us interested:

While David O. Russell's upcoming movie with Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Amy Adams is in the early lead for cast of the year for 2013, "Prisoners" ain't looking too shabby either. With Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal and Melissa Leo already on board, the long brewing movie has added another very talented name to the ensemble.

We may not know much about "Beautiful Creatures" mostly because we're probably too old for the Young Adult demo the book series and movie are aiming for, but from what we've seen so far in both pictures and the first trailer, Emmy Rossum is looking to be one to watch. And another new image from the movie backs up that notion (and it seems the Warner Bros. marketing department agrees).

The latest issue of Empire is simply overflowing with great material if you're a fan of Arnold Schwarzenegger. There's a major interview, "Working With Arnie"; a feature about his weapons of choice and one-liners; "Exploring Predator" an awesome in-depth play-by-play about his seminal alien-in-the-jungle picture; "Surviving Commando" a movie that the magazine calls his most off-the-chain; and "Arnie Killed Me," a column tracking down all the bit-actors who were offed by Arnie in his various films. If you are at all a Schwarzenegger fan, the issue is a must.

"When Jack puts Rose on the raft, then he tries to get on the raft. He's not an idiot, he doesn't want to die. And the raft sinks and kind of flips. So it's clear that there's only enough buoyancy available for one person. So he makes a decision to let her be that person instead of taking them both down," director James Cameron recently told IGN. To which the dudes from "Mythbusters" say...Oh, really?

It's a bit of good news/bad news for Italian Robsten fans. The good news: the epic conclusion to the vampire story of our time, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2" will make its world premiere at the Rome Film Festival. The bad news? Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart won't be there. That red carpet just shed a single tear. But is this a sign the 'Breaking Dawn -- Part 2' press jaunt will have significantly less participation by its two leads as they work their relationship out? While the studio has insisted plans will go forth as planned, one wonders...

Some kind of tie-in to the eventual "Blade Runner" follow up? Well, let the conversation continue as original screenwriter Jon Spaihts reveals that his initial script tied more directly to the franchise starting movie.
