Since at least 2009, and probably longer than that, Peter Bogdanovich has been trying to restore and release "The Other Side of the Wind," the final film from his friend and filmmaking legend Orson Welles. But of course, as is usually the case with anything Welles related, the project got tied up in rights issues. But in 2011 things seemed like they might be clearing up. Laywer Kenneth Sidle said that the battle over the film between Welles' lover Oja Kodar and Jacqueline Boushehri, widow of a relative of the Shah of Iran and one of the film's producers (seriously), would be clearing up, allowing Bogdanovich to finally get into the editing bay with Welles' notes and complete a cut. But alas, there has been radio silence since.

Perhaps the open ending of "Inception" is to blame, but for whatever reason, a segment of audiences seemed to be baffled by the conclusion of this summer's "The Dark Knight Rises." At least one blogger surmised that Bruce Wayne was actually dead at the end of the film, and when Alfred looks up in an Italian cafe and sees him along with Selina Kyle, leading a new, quiet and happy life, it's his imagination (or something). But just like he did for "Inception," Caine has put all conjecture to rest about what those final moments really mean.

When you want to get the music of legends like The Rolling Stones, James Brown and Bob Dylan in your movie, securing the licensing can be both tricky and expensive, and prohibitive for many filmmakers whose budgets may already be strained. But that's not the case for David Chase's "Not Fade Away," because in his back pocket, he has the secret weapon of Steven Van Zandt.

So, how did veteran Harrison Ford help rising young actor Asa Butterfield during the production of "Ender's Game"? By not being too chummy once they broke for the day. “The relationship between [Harrison] and Asa was very close,” director Gavin Hood told EW, “but he didn’t overly befriend him off the set. He helped Asa by allowing that slight sense of intimidation to be there.”

Once seen as a series of soaring precedents afforded to Hollywood's best and brightest, the massive paychecks given to high-profile actors and directors today have since grown smaller with the film industry's cost-cutting measures. However, for an elite group of individuals, their price tag remains as high as it ever was, but now a recent list has revealed a slow reversal has begun for those once deemed financially golden.

Earlier this week, all across Canada, film fans lined up at their local Canadian Tire, to vote their favorite movie that the country produced.
