It's coming on five years since "The Hurt Locker," and whether or not Jeremy Renner has truly ascended the way some might have predicted is debatable. Yes, he was great in "The Town" but since then he's logged a throwaway role in "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol," played a brainwashed zombie for half of "The Avengers," and while it was successful, there doesn't seem to be much clamoring for Aaron Cross to return after "The Bourne Legacy." So what's next for Renner? Uh, this...

Sometimes, as with the twenty-year span between "Days of Heaven" and "The Thin Red Line," waiting for a Terrence Malick movie can be unbearable. A little bit like waiting for Godot. And yet, suddenly, all that has changed. "The Tree Of Life" arrived in 2011 and his latest film, "To The Wonder" hit the film festival circuit in 2012. It arrives this spring in domestic theaters and to boot, Malick already has two more films in the can, one of which we might see during the 2013 fall film festival circuit if we're lucky. Presumably the filmmaker is making up for lost time.

The Oscar nominations are coming on Thursday morning, so that still leaves some time for critics groups to weigh in before the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences makes their announcement, and pretty much determines the movies that will be focus of conversation until Febraury 26th. But one movie most safely predict will be discussed, is Michael Haneke's "Amour."

Knives, guns, fists, masks and more, all slick, stylized and looking pretty badass. It's "Only God Forgives" and the first bit of new footage looks like another unique piece of work from Nicolas Winding Refn.

Yesterday, if you had your eye on the Twittersphere, you may have noticed a handful of peeps tweeting about hanging out with Arnold Schwarzenegger as he drove around in a tank crushing cars. Apparently, a handful of journos were invited around to watch the aging actor engage in this activity as part of a promo thing for "The Last Stand." And while we didn't have the distinct pleasure of being there, we can only imagine it was more fun that the movie itself.

Steven Soderbergh Says 'Behind The Candelabra' Was Rejected By Hollywood Studios For Being "Too Gay"

This holiday season we have movies about slavery, the hunt for Osama Bin Laden, the travails of a mid-life crisis, the crumbling of small-town life in America and more, so you might think that, despite Hollywood's turn toward the blockbuster, there's still hope that compelling stories can get out into the marketplace no matter what the budget. Well, you would be wrong. Executives still want that magical four quadrant hit, something that can be branded, bring them prestige, make an attractive product for ancillary markets and/or all of the above. And as Steven Soderbergh shares, not even having two big names as stars could get him the money he needed for "Behind The Candelabra."

The last we heard about Terry Gilliam's 20-minute short film "The Wholly Family" was well over a year ago, when it took home Best Short Film at the European Film Awards. Not bad at all for a movie that got its start as a project sponsored by the pasta company Garofalo as part of an annual series of films about Naples. Well, Gilliam took that basic premise, ran with it, and now you can finally watch it.

Well, this isn't all that surprising, but if it ain't broke, why fix it. Danny Boyle and electronic music veterans Underworld have never been too far apart. The director has used choice cuts of theirs for the soundtracks to "The Beach" and "Trainspotting," and the musicians soon took on a larger role, co-composing the score to his trippy sci-fi flick "Sunshine" (with John Murphy), and tuning up his "Frankenstein" stage show before being named musical directors of last year's London Olympics, where Boyle delivered a dazzling opening ceremony. And he's rung them up again. Well, half of them.

Ryan Murphy's 'The Normal Heart' With Julia Roberts & Mark Ruffalo Heads To HBO, Will Air In 2014

Perhaps further evidence that big studios are staying away from dramas like the plague, "The Normal Heart" has been kicking around for the past few years in slow development. At one point, Brad Pitt's Plan B shingle was involved, and almost exactly one year ago, the cast -- which has long had Mark Ruffalo attached to lead -- was rounded out by Julia Roberts and Matt Bomer and then...nothing. But now the project has a new home and a firm start date.

The annals of cinema history have seen many a pair of dueling projects treading over the same ground -- think about the two Truman Capote biopics a few years ago, or the dueling Alfred Hitchcock flicks this past fall. And after the death of Steve Jobs in 2011, two projects have joined that storied history. Whereas one has been moving at a slow and steady pace (the Aaron Sorkin-scripted and sure to be higher-budgeted film), the other, lower-budget and Ashton Kutcher-starring film, “Jobs,” has already been completed and is set for a closing night bow at Sundance. In fact, Deadline is reporting that the latter film now has a distribution deal in place with Open Road.
