It’s no secret that many films have been lost to the ravages of time -- an estimated 90 percent of American films made before 1929 are believed to gone forever -- but it’s hard to believe that an influential short film released in 1980 in front of showings of “Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back” could be missing. But that’s exactly what happened though...until now. Wired is reporting that the original negative of “Star Wars” art director Roger Christian’s directorial debut, the 25-minute short film “Black Angel,” has been located.

Quentin Tarantino has a stable of familiar actors he works with, but for his latest film, "Django Unchained," the director switched it up, casting two actors he's never worked with before for prominent roles: Jamie Foxx as the lead and Leonardo DiCaprio as the villain (arguably there are lots of new faces including Kerry Washington, Don Johnson and more).

It's coming on nearly four years since the original Swedish language version of "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" rode the wave of the popularity of the books, becoming a hit in its own right and making a star out of Noomi Rapace in the process. But since then, director Niels Arden Oplev has been keeping a low profile. Dabbling in television work for the most part while developing a couple of feature gigs, the helmer will make his Hollywood debut in 2013 with "Dead Man Down." And he's hoping that Rapace is the good luck charm that will work some magic a second time around.

It may seem a bit weird that Jessica Chastain is doing what appears to be a pretty low-rent horror movie, but we'd reckon it's another way to get an auteur notched on her belt that already includes names like Terrence Malick, Jeff Nichols, Kathryn Bigelow, John Hillcoat and more. Guillermo del Toro is the producer behind "Mama," which finds Chastain replacing her fiery red locks for a black-haired goth look, and before you see the movie, you can now check out the short that got the ball rolling.

If the box office was anything to go by, if you saw any movie on Christmas Day with your family/friends/ON YOUR OWWWWN, it was "Les Misérables," Tom Hooper's blockbuster adaptation of the long-running musical stage adaptation of Victor Hugo's epic novel. Complete with an all-star cast of Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen, Helena Bonham-Carter and Eddie Redmayne, the film might have gotten some mixed responses, but it was overwhelmingly the favorite choice of audiences on the 25th, and looks likely to be a major force when Oscar nominations are announced in a couple of weeks.
