So, in addition to serving as the final chapter in "The Twilight Saga," will 'Breaking Dawn Part 2' also be a scrapbook to Robsten, one of the great cinema romances of our time? Certainly, the picture of them gazing lovingly at each other in this batch of new images from the sequel carries with it a certain amount of weight. Will KStew and RPatz fans be able to contain their tears? Yes, this movie asks big questions...

This week will finally see the answer to one of Hollywood's great questions: will audiences watch a 'Bourne' movie without Matt Damon? The answer will be provided by Tony Gilroy's "The Bourne Legacy," the first of what could be a potential franchise starring Jeremy Renner as Aaron Cross, a similar agent to Jason Bourne, but a product of the Department of Defense's Operation Outcome, a different training program from the CIA's Treadstone. Gilroy is no stranger to the 'Bourne' franchise, having been a writer or co-writer on all three installments, but once Damon and "Bourne Supremacy" and "Bourne Ultimatum" director Paul Greengrass decided against returning, he was tasked with creating what producer Frank Marshall called a "same-time-quel."

Just a day after “Kick-Ass 2” solidified its existence further by casting Donald Faison in the role of Dr. Gravity, the comic book adaptation can safely count another cast member on board, this time with a returning actress from the first film, while in other news two other independent productions have found their leading ladies.

No one in the past few years has quite so committed to on-the-lam thrillers like Eric Bana. From “Hulk” to “Hanna,” the Australian actor seems to revel in the pulpy elements inherent to the films, and as the recently released trailer shows for his latest, “Deadfall,” he's brought two veteran actors and a Southern accent out for a dose of genre fun.

If Tom Cruise can play Jack Reacher, then he can play just about anyone. That was presumably the logic that went into the decision to give the okay to remake “The Magnigicent Seven” (itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s “Seven Samurai,” of course) in which Cruise will (presumably) be taking on the lead role first occupied by Yul Brynner. We voiced our concerns back when the project was first announced that without a smattering of other A-Listers this could fast become “The Magnificent One And His Six Friends,” but our concerns have no impact on MGM who look to be moving forward at a brisk pace with the project.

"Ghostbusters 3" might be endlessly rattling around development hell (and with Bill Murray definitely not involved, really, who cares?), but another long-belated sequel to a 1980s comedy/sci-fi classic seems to be having a lot more luck. More than once in the twenty years since the characters were last screen, there's been talk of a third "Bill & Ted" movie, another entry in the franchise following the two titular less-than-bright Californians, as played by Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter, who've traveled through time in "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" and fought off Death and met God in "Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey". But it's one of those projects that, honestly, we never really thought we'd see come to pass.
