In a moment, it seemed to be over. When news emerged last year that the U.S. government had undertaken a daring, clandestine mission that resulted in the killing of Osama Bin Laden, the revelation came as a surprise. Nearly a decade after the horrific attacks on 9/11, the nation was a bit closer to closure. But how was Bin Laden found? How did the search continue through two different administrations in the White House? Well, strap in...

Back in September, Marvel was getting ready to drop an elaborate box set, including all the Phase One films, housed in a fancy briefcase featuring a replica of the Tesseract (see above). But there was a small problem. The design of the briefcase was copyrighted by a German luggage company and the paperwork and rights hadn't been cleared by the comic company for use in this kind of packaging. The result was a delay on the set, and lots of unhappy faces this Christmas. But, there is a silver lining -- the set is now back on track and will feature even more for fans.

Well, seeing as unnecessary sequels to “Twins,” “Ghostbusters,” and "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" continue to develop, why not add another one to the mix? While the last we heard from Mike Myers was that he was trying to get a fourth “Austin Powers” movie off the ground, it seems he’s turned his attention to his other comedic franchise, “Wayne’s World.”

Yes, we’re still talking about “The Dark Knight Rises,” and with the Blu-ray release around the corner and the awards season in full swing, it likely won't be the last you hear of it. And indeed, a new peek behind the hood has arrived as the behind-the-scenes featurettes from the home video release have made it online along with another featuring cinematographer Wally Pfister talking about one of his earlier collaborations with Christopher Nolan.

While the Michael Bay-produced “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” reboot continues to fight its way through leaked script drafts and halted production borne from budget issues, the spotlight has forced its way over on “Turtles' co-creator Kevin Eastman, who has the necessary job of keeping interest piqued. For him, that means name-checking every successful film of the last few years, apparently.

Perhaps it was Peter Jackson's uncanny concealment of the initial LOTR trilogy's production, or maybe just a smoother process the first time through, but as the December release of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” draws closer, the ominous swirl of technical criticisms and corporate meddling above its head only grows larger. Unfortunately, that cloud continues to increase today, with the news that J.R.R. Tolkien's estate has taken legal action against Warner Bros., while elsewhere Jackson and co. are under scrutiny for their handling of animals on the set.

How quickly a studio (or a trade?) change their minds. Not even a week, it was reported that a trio of indie types -- Brady Corbet, Dane DeHaan and Alden Ehrenreich -- were leading the pack to take over James Franco's old part of Harry Osborne, best pal to Peter Parker, and son of Green Goblin Norman Osborne, in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," the sequel to this summer's tepidly-received superhero reboot. But it seems like either The Hollywood Reporter were acting on old info, or Marc Webb and Sony executives had a major rethink over the weekend, as the same trade now reports that the three previous names are out, and four new, and quite different actors, are now testing for the role.

Considering it was one of the most profitable films of 2011 -- $97 million in ticket sales off a paltry 1. $1.5 million budget, that’s a lot of profit-- we’re surprised this wasn’t announced sooner. Rose Byrne, Patrick Wilson and director James Wan will all return to reprise their respective roles in the sequel to “Insidious.”

Is Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar going all genre on us? One could argue the filmmaker is already knee-deep in it. Though the first half of his career was marked by colorful and irreverent comedic melodramas, of late, his films have been taking on a more thriller-ish tone and these kinds of elements have been around for years. "Volver" definitely sports a mystery vibe with some Hitchcock-ian notes (filtered through Almodovar's distinct personality of course), "Broken Embraces" is like a '40s noir, "Bad Education" has many a thriller moments and even "Talk To Her" has moments of intrigue outside of just melodrama.

F. Gary Gray's N.W.A. Biopic 'Straight Outta Compton' Might Land At Universal

In the works since 2009, and moving at a snail's pace, the long developing N.W.A. biopic "Straight Outta Compton" is one of the musical biopic projects -- like movies about James Brown, Frank Sinatra or Tupac Shakur -- that get a bit of heat every now and then, only to go back to the sidelines. Having to snag music rights, life rights and more, all while pleasing various estates and family members, is a complicated business, so excuse us if we're taking this coolly.
