Today we have an infographic for one of the most anticipated movies of the year, plus a pair of posters for two wildly different films -- one a heartwarming tale of redemption, and the other about a family discovering hidden horrors in their new home.

It looks like it's full steam ahead on the next feature film from Terry Gilliam, and so far it's looking quite promising. The director has already lined up Christoph Waltz in the lead role of the sci-fi flick "The Zero Theorem," which apparently mostly takes place in a chapel, centers around four main characters, and possibly includes nudity of some kind. And while word has mostly been quiet since the film was announced back in August, it looks like the cast is beginning to take shape.

It’s been two years since since it was revealed that the notoriously picky Viggo Mortensen would lead Ana Piterbarg’s directorial debut, the Argentinian-made, Spanish-language “Everybody Has A Plan,” in dual roles as the identical twins Pedro and Agustin. After many stills and a non-subtitled Spanish language trailer, naturally, we finally have a North American trailer complete with English subtitles.

Surely at this stage, Danny Elfman must have some kind of cloning machine at work. In 2012 alone, the Oingo Boingo member turned composer has penned two scores for his regular collaborator Tim Burton, "Dark Shadows" and "Frankenweenie," another for "Men In Black 3," and one for David O. Russell's "Silver Linings Playbook." He's got Fox animated pic "Epic" and a reunion with Sam Raimi on "Oz The Great and Powerful" coming up too, but all being well, we could see two more Elfman scores before the year is out.

Emboldened by two Best Picture wins in two years (plus two Best Directors, two Best Actors and a Best Actress...), Harvey Weinstein seems to be setting out to win all the Oscars in 2013 -- "The Master" and "Silver Linings Playbook" all look like players, and The Weinstein Company is also holding out hope for "Django Unchained," "Killing Them Softly," "Untouchable," "Song for Marion," "Quartet" and more. Next year, however, he's going for a simpler approach, by cramming as many acclaimed actors as possible into a single acclaimed piece of source material.

3D might have lost some of its luster since the glory days of "Avatar" all the way back in 2009 -- films like "Ice Age: Continental Drift" and "The Amazing Spider-Man" made the bulk of their money in 2D, domestically at least -- but it's still a profitable money spinner domestically. Worst case scenario is that audiences end up paying an extra few dollars for their ticket to help battle plummeting admissions, and best case scenario is that the film, like "Avatar," "The Avengers" and others, is catapulted to gangbusters international numbers by the rest of the world's seemingly unsatiable appetizer for 3D.

Danish director Susanne Bier, who was behind the much acclaimed, but decidedly tough likes of "Brothers," "After the Wedding" and Hollywood debut "Things We Lost In the Fire," is not exactly the obvious choice for a romantic comedy. Particularly given that she just won the Foreign Language Oscar a couple of years back for "In a Better World." And yet Bier began her career with rom-coms like 'The One and Only" and "Once In a Lifetime," so her new film, "Love Is All You Need," perhaps shouldn't come as such a shock.

Well this is certainly a fascinating story for the big screen, and one that is also incredibly bleak. Vulture is reporting that Brad Pitt and his Plan B production outfit are developing a feature film based on the 2001 New York Times Best Seller "IBM and the Holocaust," by Edwin Black. The book chronicles the efforts of IBM's then-chief executive Thomas Watson, who formed an alliance with the Nazis and facilitated the Holocaust by implementing a series of punch cards based on national census data. Ah, the genius of evil.

Um, yay? According to a Deadline report, "Entourage" creator Doug Ellin is nearing completion on his "Entourage" movie script, which would presumably complete the heart-stopping cliffhanger of the show's final season, with screaming Jewish stereotype Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven), elevated to studio mogul status. After Ellin completes his screenplay, he will submit it to executive producers Mark Wahlberg and Steven Levinson and await the greenlight from HBO. We're already all tingly with anticipation.

Once upon a time, we were excited about every Tim Burton picture that came along, but that's been steadily chipped away over the last decade or so. "Big Fish" and "Sweeney Todd" have their moments, but from "Planet of the Apes" to this year's "Dark Shadows," we feel more and more dread about each coming Burton production, dread that's normally justified when we see the finished product.
