With "Twilight" coming to an end this week (NOOOO!), your mom and sister will have more options just around the corner for supernatural tween romances.

To say that Adam McKay is busy would be an understatement. The writer/producer/director has about a half dozen various projects on the go, and when we caught up with him this afternoon, he was in the midst of doing interviews for dark indie comedy "Fully Loaded," which he executive produced. Directed by Shira Piven, and written by and starring Paula Killen and Lisa Orkin (who based it on their play from Uprights Citizens Brigade), the film chronicles one night on the town with two single Moms, whose journey for a hook up finds them comedically reflecting on their lives, past relationships, children and more.

Fox Searchlight is in overdrive mode today with their biggest Oscar contender of the year, bar "The Sessions" with "Hitchock." They've released six new photos, a clip from the film, a new poster and a pretty enlightening featurette which gives you the intriguing meat of the movie. It's about more than just the making of "Psycho" or a Hitchcock biopic and instead about the critical relationship between Hitchcock and Alma Reville: his wife, his editor, his scriptwriter and his most trusted creative confidante.

Damn, as far as indie movie hand offs go, this one is pretty great. So, Mark Ruffalo can no longer do your movie? How about John Hawkes instead? That's precisely what's happening with "Low Down," the developing jazz biopic focused on Joe Albany.

Well, Aunt Patty and Aunt Selma are going to be thrilled. While it might seem new, a movie about "MacGyver" has been brewing for years (at one point, the show's creator tried to sue to stop the release of "MacGruber") and it's now kicking back to life.

Well, "The Europa Report" has been taking its sweet ass time in showing itself. The first image from the movie debuted at the beginning of the year, and then not much had been heard about it since. And even though there's no release date or a distributor as far as we can tell, a teaser trailer has dropped online, adding to the mystery.

It's been quite a year for Anne Hathaway, and for any actress, toplining (and some would argue stealing the show) Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" would have been more than enough. But the actress just hosted "Saturday Night Live" over the weekend (featuring that Rihanna performance against a desktop screensaver from seven years ago) and is getting into the Oscar fray with "Les Misérables." And next year? If all goes according to plan, she'll be working with a guy you may have heard of named Steven Spielberg.
