Of the many long brewing biopics in Hollywood, a movie about James Brown is among them. Spike Lee was once on board the project, with Wesley Snipes as his choice to play the lead, but that iteration has long since been taken off table. Can a powerhouse trio that includes "The Help" director Tate Taylor, super producer Brian Grazer and fan Mick Jagger help this one get on up? (Sorry, we had to).

Just when you thought trailers for trailers couldn't get any dumber, Marvel has decided to create two for what better be a helluva spot for "Iron Man 3" tomorrow because we're sick of posting about this movie already.

While Michael Cera will return to your computer in his most beloved role as George-Michael Bluth in the next season of "Arrested Development," he's always been eager to break out of that mold. And while "Youth In Revolt" was a (half) attempt to do that, his next effort will certainly find him in different waters. And with a different haircut.

This is one on the tongues of cinephiles this fall -- Leos Carax's long-awaited feature film effort, "Holy Motors." While this writer had mixed feelings on the meta movie swirl, it seems to be a minority opinion, as most have been taken by the film's ambition and playfulness. And while New York cinemagoers are already experiencing the film, it won't be expanding nationally until next week, but until then a couple of new clips should tide you over.

Hugh Grant Returns To Being Hugh Grant, Lines Up Rom-Com With 'Two Weeks Notice' Director

While playing a variety of baddies, in equally numerous wigs in The Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer's forthcoming "Cloud Atlas" might be a fun lark, it's not the kind of role that pays the bills for Hugh Grant. He's a romcom man, and when he's charmingly befuddled, audiences tend to fork over their money to see him haplessly stutter his way through another one of life's romantic adventures.

13 year-old Kara Hayward made her acting debut as Suzy Bishop in Wes Anderson’s “Moonrise Kingdom” earlier this year, and we imagine that there are a lot of worse ways to launch an acting career. Hayward impressed in her substantial role, the movie did well critically and commercially, and it now looks like she is ready to kick on with her big-screen career after securing the lead role in “The Sisterhood of Night.”

Quentin Tarantino has been careful in building a sort of shared universe between his films across the last couple of decades. There's not a huge degree of crossover, but certain things -- like Red Apple cigarettes -- recur across his movies, while a character from one film can be related to another, like Mr. Blonde and Vincent from "Pulp Fiction" being brother, or Donny Donowitz from "Inglourious Basterds" being the father of Lee Donowitz from "True Romance."

Watch: Full Movie Of Mickey Spillane Playing His Own Mike Hammer In 'The Girl Hunters,' WB Picks Up Rights To Character

It doesn't get much more hardboiled than Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer. The private investigator who first appeared in the author's book "I, The Jury" embodies all the characteristics that would inspire a generation of burly brusiers who take the law into to their own hands. A war veteran, Hammer doesn't particularly care for more legal methods of handing out justice, letting his fists and gun do the talking instead, while his sexual appetite is spurred by his secretary Velda. Almost from the start, Hollywood came calling for the character.
