It seems everyone wants a piece of Joseph Gordon-Levitt these days. The actor was rumored to play Batman in "Justice League," is on the ever growing list of contenders for "Guardians Of The Galaxy," is hosting the Sundance awards later this month, and now has another franchise being tossed across his very messy desk. Needless to say, dude has options.

Oh, this is still a thing? If you missed it, director Tom Six sort of made a name for himself by digusting horror fans with his ass-to-mouth horror "classics," "The Human Centipede (First Sequence)" and "The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence)." Quality of the films withstanding, enough people were curoius enough to see a demented doctor stitch mouths to anuses, that a third entry was announced a couple years back, "The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence)." But last spring, Six and his star Dieter Laser fell out over the script (lol) and not much has been heard since. But don't worry gross out fans, the duo and the movie are back on deck.

So, the "Twilight" saga is over, right? Wrong. You see, Stephenie Meyer created a brand monster, and it's one that Lionsgate will want to keep milking cash out of. So this spring, they'll be asking Twihards to buy "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" all over again. Why? For eight minutes of more footage. Woo!

There are some movies that require an extensive ad campaign, and savvy marketing in order for potential "audiences" to get it. Others pretty much sell themselves. Guess which one Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers" is?

The always chatty and affable director Guillermo del Toro is the gift that keeps on giving. Always having his fingers in several pots, the filmmaker wears several hats as a producer, writer, visionary and more. This month he's shepherding another ghost story to the screen as a producer of "Mama." No stranger to the genre having directed "The Devil's Backbone," and having produced "The Orphanage," "Mama" stars Jessica Chastain and "Game Of Thrones" villain Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as a couple tasked with the challenge of raising his young nieces that were left alone in the forest for 5 years. However, all is not what it seems... See del Toro introduce the short film that convinced him to back the project in the first place, he calls it "claustrophobic." "The short was one of the scariest things I've ever seen and it was incredibly well-made," he said.

Last summer, one of the biggest movies to make a noise on the floor of the San Diego Comic-Con didn't have a cast, release date or had even officially gone into production. And yet the brief presentation of Gareth Edwards' "Godzilla" caused an uproar, with social media lighting up moments afterward and Warner Bros. quickly unveiling a poster and confirming a release date last fall. Now, as it heads in front of cameras this spring, it looks like a monster battle is brewing behind-the-scenes.

Each year, filmmakers and studios race toward an end-of-December deadline, not only to get their Oscar-contending films into theaters to qualify, but to ensure Academy voters are able to see them in time to vote. But in 2014, a move to shift the broadcast of the ceremony from February to January could have massive repercussions.

Chalk it up to college kids finally freed from family obligations with a bit of extra time on their hands before school starts up again. Chalk it up to the surprising popularity of Trey Songz, who was responsible for drawing in a third of the audience under 25. Chalk it up to the lure of the perverse thrill of sexy young people being threatened/killed with chainsaws. Chalk it up to audience not wanting to sit in a theater for nearly three hours. Whatever it was, "Texas Chainsaw 3D" surpassed expectations by taking the top spot this weekend at the box office, beating out films like "Django Unchained," "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" and "Les Miserables." And so, of course, we'll probably get another sequel.

You would think that with the Oscar nominations coming on Thursday we might get a bit of a breather, but alas, just seven days later the Sundance Film Festival will kick off, introducing a whole batch of new movies that will hope to be part of the discussion in 2013. And one of the films we're looking forward to is the sophomore effort from "Sound Of My Voice" director Zal Batmanglij.

Jessica Chastain has done many things in her brief but busy career. She's pondered love and death for Terrence Malick in "The Tree Of Life," she got close to the grizzliest of the Bondurants in "Lawless," and right now she's hunting Osama Bin Laden in "Zero Dark Thirty." And later this month, she's going to try her hand at being a goth rocker (album cover up top).
