Between his two directorial outings -- "CQ" and "Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III" -- and in his collaborations with Wes Anderson (most recently on "Moonrise Kingdom"), Roman Coppola has certainly shown a knack for the fantastical. He's adept at constructing accessible yet unreal worlds that always offer up a lot to explore visually, and so perhaps it's no surprise that he once tried his hand at making a comic book movie.

Just when you thought you'd amassed all the "Star Wars" merchandise, here’s yet another collector’s item to get excited about. Perhaps one of the more celebrated aspects of “Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace” is composer John Williams’ epic score. When the original release of the soundtrack first came out, it actually wound up being certified platinum in the U.S. and Gold in the U.K. Now, the original soundtrack is getting a limited edition release on vinyl.

Though the awesomely-titled “Hot Tub Time Machine” didn’t light the box office on fire -- it premiered at the third spot and went on to earn $64 million worldwide -- it has apparently done well enough on the home video market to entice MGM to start exploring the possibility of a sequel.

Though she's rightfully earned her claim to fame thanks to a string of comic roles, Emma Stone has slowly branching out. She's put on her blockbuster shoes with "The Amazing Spider-Man" franchise, gone down the drama route with "The Help" and last weekend gave a stab at playing the femme fatale in the guns and molls goof "Gangster Squad." But for one her next roles, she'll be heading into new territory.

Some two years in the making and add another two for development (at least), Alfonso Cuarón's "Gravity" has finally scored an October 4, 2013 release date. Originally pegged for a November 2012 release, Warner Bros. took it off last year's calendar for unspecified reasons, but most presumed this was due to the VFX-heavy nature of the film that was shot completely in soundstages and in 3D. Starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, "Gravity" has been a long time coming and so much so it's taken on mythic proportions in some corners fo the blogosphere that have declared it a kind of Kubrick-ian return. It probably doesn't hurt that Cuarón hasn't made a movie since 2006's "Children of Men." Six years between movies will create legend and buzz.

There is no doubt that Michael Shannon can play menacing -- he'll put it to blockbuster effect this summer as General Zod in "Man Of Steel" -- and it seems filmmakers are eager to harness that intensity. That's certainly true with "The Iceman," the starry hitman flick that hit the festival circuit last fall but has been quiet ever since. But with a spring release date around the corner, Millenium Films have turned a light back onto the picture as they gear up to get it out.

Jerry Lewis made his first film appearance back in 1949, and 46 years later it seemed that he’d graced the big screen for the final time alongside Oliver Platt in “Funny Bones.” But after 18 years away, and around 30 years since his last leading role, it appears that Lewis is to return in a film called “Max Rose.” This one has been kicking around forever, with Las Vegas Weekly reporting on it back in 2010, and quoting Lewis as saying it would be about “an old man who is driven by love and optimism and by his love for his young daughter.”

Man, we totally forgot about this. First announced nearly a year ago, Metallica and "Predators" director Nimrod Antal revealed they were embarking on a concert movie, that also would have some kind of narrative. We all kind of rolled our eyes and said "Cool, whatevs" and then nothing much else was heard. But today the movie lands with a new company, a release date and even an actor in the thing.

Things have been quiet for director Timur Bekmambetov following last summer's "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter." In the run up to the movie there was talk of a few projects including "The Current War" about Thomas Edison with Sacha Baron Cohen considering the project as well as his take on Hermann Melville's "Moby Dick" which got a fresh rewrite. But not so much since. However, the helmer is kicking off 2013 by pairing up with a filmmaker who knows a thing or two about explosions.
