Coming up in the next few months are a pair of interesting looking projects from two directors who couldn’t be more different if they tried. There’s Steven Soderbergh’s “Side Effects” which is set for a February 8th release, and there’s also Michael Bay’s “Pain and Gain” scheduled for release on April 26th. And what do they have in common, you ask? Well, not a lot, except they’ve both just received new TV spots.

With a gig on the CBS sitcom "Mike & Molly" limiting her schedule for making movies, Melissa McCarthy is still looking to tap into the praise and buzz she earned for "Bridesmaids." Her stint in Judd Apatow's "This Is 40" is more or less a cameo (albeit a great one -- the outtakes of the principal's office scene over the credits were funnier than half the movie) but within six months, audiences are going to be getting a double dose of the comedienne in lead roles. Next month she'll make Jason Bateman's life a living hell in "Identity Thief," and then a few months after that Sandra Bullock will play the straight man alongside McCarthy in "The Heat."

George Tillman Jr. arrives at Sundance this year with a film significantly more anticipated than his previous two efforts (“Notorious” and “Faster”) in the form of “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete.” The film will tell the story of two kids from Brooklyn who are left to fend for themselves one summer after their mothers are both detained by the authorities. Jennifer Hudson, Anthony Mackie, Jeffrey Wright, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Skylan Brooks (playing Mister), Ethan Dizon (playing Pete) and Jordin Sparks all star in what Sundance have described as “a beautifully observed and tremendously moving film about salvation through friendship and the way transformation sometimes can happen just by holding on long enough.”

When it was first announced last summer that David Gordon Green had gone ahead a shot a movie in secret with Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch, we didn't know what to think. A remake of the Icelandic film "Either Way" which nobody (who isn't in Iceland) had really seen anyway, the question was whether or not it was going to be another comic goof, or perhaps something closer to the mood and tone of his earlier work. Well, it turns out its both of those things.

For those of you dreaming about more Channing Tatum in "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," guess again. Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura recently revealed that despite all the rumors that the movie was undergoing reshoots to beef up the role of the suddenly hot star of "The Vow," "21 Jump Street" and "Magic Mike," that simply isn't the case. So what are we getting? Ninjas. Lots and lots of ninjas.

Well, the buzz around Paul Schrader's "The Canyons" continues to swirl, and it's been not particularly good. Most of that talk comes from the New York Times Magazine extensive article on the film, which among other things included the saga of Lindsay Lohan's behaviour on the set, creative differences between the director, producer Braxton Pope and writer Bret Easton Ellis, and even the revelation that Steven Soderbergh offered to edit the film. The picture was also turned down by the Sundance Film Festival, and it seems another festival has decided they won't be screening the movie either.

If there’s anything we can learn from observing Hollywood these past few years, it’s that they will look anywhere for ideas. In the past, it was comic books, video games, action figures, board games, or theme park attractions that inspired the Hollywood blockbusters. Now it appears as if they’re scouring the internet for the next great billion dollar idea and if The Rock is involved, what could possibly go wrong? Right?

The US premiere for Pablo Larrain’s film “No” is finally around the corner and to commemorate its release, seven different clips of the film are now online. The film was picked up by Sony Pictures Classics after attracting a great amount of buzz when it premiered at the Cannes Directors' Fortnight and it looks as if they are wasting no time trying to get the word out about the film. And now that “No” has recently picked up an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language Film, it should be an even easier sell.
