It seems that Brad Pitt isn't the only one who can make an embarrassing commercial (or two). Zac Efron has dipped his toes into the celebrity endorsement world, with his own fashion-oriented spot and it's pretty unintentionally hilarious.

"All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others." Actor turned filmmaker Andy Serkis, best known for playing the motion-capture being that brought the creature Gollum to life (and voicing the character as well) in "The Lord Of The Rings" films, has been tapped to direct a live-action mo-cap adaption of George Orwell's classic allegorical novella/cautionary political fable "Animal Farm." Serkis, who is reprising his role as the fictional character in Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" prequels, seems to have had an eye on feature-length filmmaking for some time now, having directed second-unit on all three 'Hobbit' pictures.

As David Oyelowo continues to stack up roles, it's only a matter of time before his breakthrough moment arrives. This fall he'll become a familiar face to moviegoers, with roles in Lee Daniels' "The Paperboy," Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln," and the Tom Cruise vehicle "Jack Reacher." And he's as busy as ever, recently wrapping with Daniels on "The Butler" and currently filming the controversial Nina Simone biopic "Nina." But now he's lining up the kind of lead role that should definitely get him more notice.

Animation fans were shocked when, a year-and-a-half before the film’s release, animation giant Pixar fired Brenda Chapman, an animation vet and the studio’s first female director (she was also the only female member of the studio’s vaunted Brain Trust creative committee), from her deeply personal first project, “Brave.” While Pixar maintained that she was still on staff, the writing was on the wall, and earlier this year it was announced she had decamped for an unspecified role at LucasFilm Animation. As one animation vet told me yesterday, “Pixar definitely has a glass ceiling.” A recent blog post by Chapman, who has become more outspoken about how she was treated on the film, claims that the only reason she was hired at Disney Animation, back during the studio’s upswing, was because she was a woman.

After the disappointing returns for the unfortunately underrated "Fright Night," followed by his exit on "Pride And Prejudice And Zombies," director Craig Gillespie is dusting himself off and picking himself up. This summer he got attached to direct Will Ferrell in "The Flamingo Thief," and now he's headed to the baseball diamond with Jon Hamm.

Coming to theaters this fall...the new film from Paul Thomas Anderson starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeremy Renner, Reese Witherspoon and Emma Stone. Yep, had the cards been dealt differently for PTA, "The Master" would have been quite another picture. Now we can add another actor to the trivia list for the version of "The Master" that didn't get made.

An Oscar nominee last year for her performance in the excellent crime flick “Animal Kingdom” and soon to appear in David O. Russell’s “Silver Linings Playbook,” Australian actress Jacki Weaver has landed a role in Mac Carter’s debut feature, “Haunt.” Weaver joins Liana Liberato (who was pretty great in David Schwimmer’s “Trust”) and newcomer Harrison Gilbertson in the original horror film about a family who moves into “a new home with a dark past.” Weaver will play a former resident of the house who has suffered a family tragedy, in what sounds like a less bat-shit crazy version of “American Horror Story.”

First off: big thanks to Katie for taking over last week! In that spirit of camaraderie, we suggest you round up a few friends and head out to the multiplex (or art house; we're not picky). You’re in for a round of scares, laughs, tears, and karate chops to the face. Also, Tyler Perry appears on screen in rare form as a man and someone finally uncovers the mystery of Sasquatch. So very, very much to look forward to!
