Had things gone the way they were supposed to, Leonardo DiCaprio would be pulling double duty this December, starring not only in Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained," but also in Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby." But alas, additional shooting pushed the movie back from a previously scheduled Christmas Day release to a date next spring. So until then, we'll just have to look at gorgeous people being gorgeous.

Nearing sixty years old, and having announced that he's retiring from action movies, it looks like Jackie Chan is ready to tell everyone how he really feels. While he's earning the wrong kind of headlines for declaring that Hong Kong is "a city of protest marches" and that "we should have rules dictating what [issues people] can march for, and which they can't," flying slightly below that are his thoughts on his own filmography. Particularly when it comes to his work in Hollywood.

Watch: 2 Clips, 3 TV Spots & New Pics From Quentin Tarantino's Epic 'Django Unchained'

Perhaps the only thing that's been more divisive than 48fps this December is the reaction to Quentin Tarantino's highly anticipated spaghetti western slavery flick, "Django Unchained." It certainly divided the staff here enough that we ran three reviews taking on the movie, from praise to pointed criticism. But the fact of the matter is, the majority of the public still has to wait to weigh in with their verdict, and The Weinstein Company still has to sell a difficult picture for any time of year, particularly the holiday season.

In each successive picture since his 2009 black comedy “Down Terrace,” filmmaker Ben Wheatley has continually evaded expectation to create a swirl of genre delights, from his hitman horror “Kill List” to this year's “Sightseers.” He's also taken a liking to producing for others as well, and as befitting his modus operandi thus far, his latest project concerns a director unique in his vision.

Though it’s been over four years since a Guillermo Del Toro-helmed film has graced the big screen, he hasn’t been resting on his laurels. Amidst all the projects he has lined up to direct himself, the Mexican filmmaker has also turned to producing interesting projects by promising up-and-coming filmmakers. Earlier this year it was announced that Del Toro would be producing CG-animated film “Day Of The Dead,” and now THR is reporting that Fox Animation Studios has come aboard to make the movie.

Listen Logan, we know things might be hard right now. Silver Samurai is out there, and aspects of your personal life may not be going so well, but this is a bit much. At least put on a jacket, you'll catch your death of cold.

Swapping endlessly through his gallery of eccentrics and comedic personalities, actor Sacha Baron Cohen has nonetheless been nudged toward a conventional film career, as his exploitative, shock-based humor lacks the anonymity needed for the roles to thrive. However, before that transition is made final, Cohen was given an award for his contributions to comedy, and in doing so he brought back the character that gave him his start.

With a nine-minute prologue playing in front of IMAX 3D showings of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" starting tonight -- and a full length trailer playing in front of non-IMAX prints -- we're getting our first real glimpse at Benedict Cumberbatch's villainous role in "Star Trek Into The Darkness." After months of speculation about who exactly the character is -- Khan? Telepath Gary Mitchell? -- we finally have a name.

As we lamented more than once over the years, it took a long time for Jonathan Dayton & Valerie Faris, the music video veterans who made their feature debut with the multi-Oscar-nominated "Little Miss Sunshine," to make a second film. Various projects came and went including the Demetri Martin-penned "Will," and adaptations of Thomas Perrolta's "The Abstinence Teacher," which would have starred Steve Carell and Sandra Bullock.

There's a lot of big hitters arriving in theaters next summer; "Iron Man 3," "Man Of Steel," "The Lone Ranger," "Star Trek Into Darkness," "The Great Gatsby," "The Wolverine," "Elysium." But if you'd asked us this morning what our most anticipated film of the warm months of 2013 was going to be, we wouldn't have even had to think before we answered "Pacific Rim." For the most part, it's because it's the first film in five years from director Guillermo Del Toro ("Pan's Labyrinth"). Although that it features giant robots and giant monsters kicking the holy living shit out of each other, and that it has a very strong script to be working from are other good reasons why we're excited (and why Warner Bros have already commissioned a script for a sequel).
