It might be underwhelming a bit at the box office, but it's all about the multiples at this time of year -- think of "We Bought A Zoo," which opened to a disappointing $9 million last Christmas, only to go on to make a healthy $75 million by the time it departed from theaters. So Universal are far from giving up on Judd Apatow's latest, keeping the publicity machine ticking over the holidays, and the studio have released another deleted scene from the movie to lure in those who might have so far been on the fence about the film.

With his return to live-action filmmaking a financial and critical success, it seems like Robert Zemeckis isn’t in a hurry to return to the cold and creepy embrace of mo-cap. The “Flight” director was originally set to helm a mo-cap remake of the landmark Beatles animated film “Yellow Submarine” before Disney put the kibosh on the project in the wake of the dismal showing of “Mars Needs Moms” and now hit seems e’s cooled on the idea of ever returning to the project.

Watch: Elijah Wood Is A 'Maniac' In First 6 Minutes From Horror Remake

There is no doubt that an Elijah Wood led remake of the 1980 B-movie, cult horror flick "Maniac" is an enticing prospect. Granted, it's coming from the guy who made the parking lot thriller "P2" and the movie no saw, "Wrong Turn At Tahoe," but Wood getting splattered in blood and carving up some people is certainly a far step away from Frodo. It's just too bad the results seem to be a bit uninspired.

Even though "Zero Dark Thirty" is still only in a handful of theaters in New York City and Los Angeles, it seems everyone has an opinion on the movie at this point. The "pro-torture" controversy continues to swirl, though director Kathryn Bigelow has tried to make it clear the interrogation method was included because, well, it's something that was used along the way (United States Secretary Of Defense Leon Panetta has admitted "enhanced interrogation" was used to get intel on Osama Bin Laden). Anyway, the talk around the movie won't end anytime soon, and now Rupert Murdoch is weighing in.

Whether you love Tom Hooper's long and loud "Les Miserables," or if you're less enthused (like this writer), most everyone can agree that the highlight, the standout sizzle reel moment, is Anne Hathaway's heartbreaking rendition of "I Dreamed A Dream." As Fantine, her role may not be big, but Hathaway arguably delivers the film's most poignant, wrenching performance, and now you can enjoy it in full.

Forbes loves to number crunch and then spit it back to the masses. Earlier this year, the business publication sourced the list from its Celebrity 100 rankings (Jennifer Lopez topped their list, curiously), and came up with the posit that Eddie Murphy is the Most Overpaid Actor in Hollywood, having taken in with his recent films only $2.30 for every dollar appointed to him (we're sure his agents cringed when the list was published.
