So, have doubts about Sean Penn's versatility? Next month you'll see him on screen as the damaged, fragile, Robert Smith-esque goth rocker in "This Must Be The Place." Then in January, he'll be snarling and scenery chewing his way through "Gangster Squad."

The word on the fourth installment of the mega-grossing (and thunderously dull) “Transformers” series has been slow. We do know it won’t be a reboot; franchise leading man Shia LaBeouf won’t be back to do battle with the Decepticons; and this will be director Michael Bay’s last outing with the Autobots (Isn’t that what he said last time?). While Bay is wrapping up post-production on his robot-less crime flick “Pain & Gain” with Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, rumors suggest casting is already underway on his final installment in the franchise – and it isn’t exactly in the LaBeouf mold.

Bitching about the vapidity of tentpoles it the new black. "The Dark Knight Rises" cinematographer Wally Pfister recently disparaged the shooting clumsiness of "The Avengers" in a new interview, Paul Bettany admitted that he's never bothered to watch any of the "Iron Man" movies he's in (he plays the robot voice of Tony Stark's digital butler Jarvis) and finally, Australian actor Hugo Weaving recently said he's not very keen on returning to Marvel's "Captain America" franchise (he plays the Red Skull villain).

Do you remember that Bryan Singer has a new movie called "Jack The Giant Killer" coming out? Yeah, we don't either. So it's probably not a big deal that Warner Bros. is changing -- well, tweaking -- the title, or moving the release date (again), because it's not like many folks had marked this one down on the calendar.

"Prometheus" is now on home video, and the conversation continues as fans debate what it's all about, whether or not the not-quite-prequel worked, and even if it ties into the "Blade Runner" universe. But no matter where most folks stand on the movie, it can be agreed that, visually, the film is a wonder. Shot digitally and presented in 3D, it's one of the few films this year that was actually immersive in the format (at least in this writer's opinion), with some special effects that were truly impressive at times. But when it came to the exteriors, Ridley Scott and co. had some help.

Producers Say They Have No Plans To Make A 3D James Bond Movie, Plus New 'Skyfall' Videoblog

3D, once vaunted as the format that would renew moviegoer attendance and buoy declining revenues, has now nearly become a dirty word. Hardly a week goes by without a movie arriving in the format, usually converted, asking audiences to pay an extra fee for underwhelming visual pizazz. So it comes as quite a nice and refreshing surprise to hear a producer take a level-headed approach and talk about 3D in terms of serving the movie, not just the bottom line. And so, for those of you wanting James Bond's martini glass to be in your face, that likely won't happen anytime soon.

Joaquin Phoenix Says Goodbye To Oscar Chances, Calls Awards "Total Utter Bullshit"

Nearly everyone who has seen Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" agrees that the performances by it's two leads, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix, and co-star Amy Adams, are Oscar-caliber turns. Given rich, complex characters to dive into, in a world unlike anything we've really seen on the big screen, the trio really deliver some special moments in the film. But let's be frank, Oscars are as much of a political campaign as the race for the White House, and if you aren't willing to play ball, you won't be invited to the Dolby Theater. Yes, there are exceptions, but that's the basic rule of thumb. And one man who has already been absent for most of the press tour for "The Master," has essentially written himself out of the Oscar race as well.

Watch: New International Trailer For 'Killing Them Softly,' Brad Pitt Says It's "A Call For Responsible Capitalism"

When the squeeze is on, everyone suffers. That is just one of the overarching themes of Andrew Dominik's "Killing Them Softly," a hard-boiled crime tale that has bigger thematic ambitions. Brad Pitt stars as Jackie Cogan, a hitman and enforcer who subcontracts out a kill and watches as the events around the heist of a high stakes card game has repercussions both up and down the criminal chain of command. As we noted at Cannes, it's a brilliant movie, and Pitt recently discussed how Dominik chose to approach the film.
