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).

While we're no closer to finding out what Christopher Nolan's next directorial project will be, a film is gearing up that is something very near; the directorial debut of Nolan's regular DoP Wally Pfister, an original sci-fi project called "Transcendence," which has already attracted some serious A-list talent in the shape of Johnny Depp, who's going to be playing the film's lead. The likes of Christian Bale, James McAvoy, Tobey Maguire, Christoph Waltz, Ewan McGregor and Tom Hardy have all been connected to the film of late, but now word's firming up on who might be joining Depp in the project.

After a few months of relative quiet, Lena Dunham, much to the rage of her various detractors, is seemingly everywhere again. Her multi-million dollar book proposal leaked earlier in the week, she features in Judd Apatow's "This Is 40" next week, and the first season of "Girls" landed on DVD today, with the second season set to start up in about a month's time (and we can't bloody wait).

"The Adventures of TIntin," Steven Spielberg's performance-capture-animation adaptation of Herge's boy reporter comics character, wasn't quite taken to the hearts of American audiences last year. Reviews were lukewarm, and, in a packed Christmas season, the film was crushed by the competition, hobbling to a fairly meagre $77 million domestically; not so great for a film that cost well, well north of $100 million.

Let's face it, as much as the Academy tries to retool the show each year, the Best Song category is always a lowlight of the show. It doesn't help that the songs themselves are generally not so hot, and whether performed in a giant medley or individually, it tends to bring the telecast to a grinding halt. But listen to us, Oscar voters, you can change all that in 2012.
