Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman together at last? That already puts this on up high on our must see list, but putting them in a potent drama that has them facing the horrors of WWII particularly makes this one worth keeping an eye on.

Bad ideas don't die in Hollywood...they just get passed on to another producer. As the lackuster $46 million take for "The Three Stooges" this spring proved, just because something is a brand name doesn't mean audiences will care. And yes, while Disney is bringing "The Lone Ranger" to the big screen next year, it has Johnny Depp, and we're willing to bet that the developing, never-say-die movie version of "Mr. Ed" won't. (Though if Depp did play the horse that would be awesome).

How the mighty have fallen? Going from "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" and "Clueless" to this...goofy and dated-feeling vampire comedy, "Vamps," feels kind of depressing for filmmaker Amy Heckerling. Why? Well, other than looking like it belongs from another era this quote unquote, "cheeky, fresh comedy about two eternally young party girls navigating the dating world in the Big City" looks like it's "Clueless" blandly blended with supernatural creatures du jour (eg. vampires) but without anything inspired or funny to say about it.

It seems that James Gandolfini and Steve Carell have got along smashingly on the set of "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone." And while we'll have to wait until next Christmas for that movie to show itself, the pair are brewing up a project together that might see them take a step back in time.

While Lee Daniels' "The Paperboy" was more or less pilloried after its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, and isn't going to be in the Oscar race, it looks like his next effort could find him once again as an awards season player.

A meta movie about the movies, a comedy about dog-napping featuring a rogue's gallery of performers, Martin McDonagh's "Seven Psychopaths" is about as big a 180 as you can get from "In Bruges." While we didn't think it all worked, it can't be denied that the Midnight Madness audience at TIFF that we saw it with went along for the ride in a huge way. With the movie set to drop into theaters soon, a massive array of photos and three new TV spots have landed for the pic.

Michael Cimino Planning A New Movie That He Will Shoot In Digital

Is the redemption of Michael Cimino complete? By now, most folks know the story by heart. After directing the acclaimed, Oscar winning (including Best Director and Best Picture) "The Deer Hunter," the helmer set forth to tackle "Heaven's Gate"...and barely made it out intact. Running wildly overbudget and behind schedule, with the troubled production becoming the stuff of legend, the movie more or less became the example held up for directorial hubris and excess. It also pretty much bankrupted United Artists. But last month, a newly restored, director's cut version of the film screened at the Venice Film Festival where Cimino received the Persol award, and The Criterion Collection will give the film its due when it releases it in a special edition on DVD and BluRay in November. But does Cimino have one more treat up his sleeve?
