More rankings! As Oscar prognosticators puzzle, fret and worry over each top ten list that drops, a few patterns are becoming clear -- firstly, everyone loves "Zero Dark Thirty." And secondly, it looks like outside of a couple of categories, Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" won't be making much of a mark on the Oscar race. And indeed, the AFI shut it out entirely.

Yes, we're right in the scrum of wrapping up 2012 with a flurry of lists and awards of the best, worst and everything in between. But before the clock runs down on the year, TCM has taken the time to honor those in the industry who left us this year in their always touching, annual video memorium.

Ty Burrell Replaces Christoph Waltz In 'The Muppets' Sequel

After “The Muppets” stuck fairly faithfully to the tone and style of the original Muppet big screen outing, 1979’s “The Muppet Movie,” it appears that its sequel will follow the “The Great Muppet Caper” in very much the same way. As the title suggests, the movie was indeed a great caper. Set in London, the film followed Kermit and Fozzie (playing twin brothers no less!) as a pair of reporters sent to interview the rich victim of a jewel thief. The new film is set to go in front of cameras in London later this winter, although we suspect the story could potentially stray into different parts of Europe, and we know that two of the key human characters will be a Russian femme fatale and an Interpol agent. We had expected Christoph Waltz to play the latter, but there’s now another actor being lined up for the role.

After a release date delay and some reshoots, "Gangster Squad" is back on the case next month and in addition to the old-timey hats, clothes, cars and guns, there's going to be some old-timey music too.

With Jessica Chastain pretty much locked for a Best Actress nomination for "Zero Dark Thirty," the actress has plenty more to come in 2013. She'll be going horror for the first time in the Guillermo Del Toro-produced "Mama" opening in January, and likely to crop up on the festival circuit where she has now become a familiar face, are a duo of romantic dramas in which she co-stars with James McAvoy.

How quickly things change. Remember Borders? It seems every town in America had one, but the company that once had 1200 stores, closed its doors in 2011 forever. But we have a bit of history today from when they were still alive and kicking.

Watch: Paul Rudd Uses Viagra In Red Band Trailer For 'This Is 40' Plus Two New Featurettes

The red band trailer usually delivers nudity, foul language and all kinds of other stuff they can't show general audiences without some concerned parent gasping at the horror of it all. This one for "This Is 40" has none of those which leaves us asking why it was designated with that tag. Was it Paul Rudd's anus? The use of the word 'dicks'? The suggestion that Megan Fox isn't wearing any undewear? We're sure the stuffed shirts at the MPAA have their reasons, but anyway you can check out the not-so-naughty work below.

Matt Damon Says He Asked Jonah Nolan To Try And Crack The Story For Another 'Bourne'

Not to rehash every nitty gritty detail in the failed attempt at a fourth Jason Bourne movie starring Matt Damon, and a third directed by Paul Greengrass, but 'Bourne 4' seems to have had a lot of people try and fail to crack the story (maybe because it was more or less resolved with "The Bourne Ultimatum.") Back in the fall of 2009, it emerged that two people were writing scripts for the project, George Nolfi ("The Adjustment Bureau," 'Ultimatum') who was the preferred choice of Damon and Greengrass, and newcomers Josh Zetumer ("RoboCop") hired at the behest of Universal. You can read the long version of the story here, but the short version is that neither took off, the project collapsed: fast-forward three years and we got "The Bourne Legacy." But it seems Damon didn't give up.

Exclusive: First Listen To Alexandre Desplat's Score For 'Zero Dark Thirty'

If there's one movie that seemingly everyone is talking about, it's "Zero Dark Thirty." "Hurt Locker" director Kathryn Bigelow's harrowing account of the ten-year chase for Osama Bin Laden. The film is quickly accumulating a number of significant critics' prizes, topping many year-end lists and generating a deafening amount of Oscar buzz. One of the unsung heroes of "Zero Dark Thirty," though, is composer Alexandre Desplat, who creates the richly moody score for the film, which really comes into play during the movie's last act, swirling during the raid on Bin Laden's compound like some low-lying fog. And today, we are thrilled to give the first listen to this unique and atmospheric score.

If there has been one common thread throughout Sofia Coppola's films to date, it's that they have focused on the stories of young women who are often engaged in some kind of act of rebellion. This can be traced all the way back to her pre-feature days, with her short films.
