We won't be seeing James McAvoy on the big screen in 2012, but by this time next year, he'll have been the centerpiece of quite a few promising films. His slate includes: the thriller "Welcome To The Punch"; the duo of films "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: His" and "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Hers" alongside Jessica Chastain; and Danny Boyle's art world tale "Trance." And if that's not enough, he'll be getting dirty with "Filth." And we now have our first peek at that movie.

So, it would appear from these set pics that Nicole Kidman playing Grace Kelly looks a lot like Nicole Kidman. But if you're going to get someone to play the legendary actress and royal figure, Kidman is pretty damn good ace to have in the pocket.

Simon Curtis is a filmmaker who doesn't stand out much. In fact, most people probably wouldn't know he directed "My Week With Marilyn," which got pushed into Oscar territory thanks to the tireless efforts of Harvey Weinstein, not becuase it was a particularly good film. And prior to that, the filmmaker was "known" for his work on Brit TV, which again, hardly made him a standout. So an adaptation of an Edith Wharton novel seems like exactly the sort of material he would take on.

Sorry guys and gals, a third reteam for Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone following "Crazy Stupid Love" and the upcoming "Gangster Squad" isn't in the cards. But Ben Affleck? That's a pretty nice consolation prize.

Unsurprisingly, an Aretha Franklin biopic is not exactly a new idea – it’s one that’s been tossed around for many years now yet has failed to get off the ground. As far back as 2008, Aretha herself was speaking out about the project, at the time expressing reservations about a non-chronological approach to telling her life story. Well flash forward four years and again it’s Aretha banging the drum about the biopic, and if she’s to be believed then it sounds like it’s a lot closer to becoming a reality than ever before.

So, how has the Oscar race changed since last night's unveiling of the "unfinished" "Lincoln" at the New York Film Festival? Not much, except that Steven Spielberg's historical drama might not be the multiple-category, firebreathing contender some said it was on paper. Best Picture, Supporting Actor, Director and perhaps Adapted Screenplay noms seem a lock, but even they do not look guaranteed as wins, not even Daniel Day-Lewis whose subtler turn might not be the showy performance voters expect. So, who could steal this thunder? How about Anthony Hopkins as Alfred Hitchcock in "Hitchcock"?

With Pixar seemingly in a slump -- “Brave” had a mixed reaction, while the less said about “Cars 2” the better -- and other animation houses releasing their own solid films (last year’s “Puss In Boots” was better than it had any right to be) could the time be right for Disney to finally release something good on their own? The upcoming video-game-set (and influenced) “Wreck-It Ralph” seems like it has as much potential as anything the Mouse House has done in recent years -- again, barring Pixar -- and the studio has now released a nifty viral video to help drum up excitement in the public (read: adult) world at large.

Frankly, we're surprised this didn't happen sooner. After decades of franchising that has led Charlie Brown and gang to shill for insurance, greetings cards, vacuum cleaners, root beer and more -- not to mention the countless TV specials, many of which are holiday classics -- "Peanuts" is finally getting the big screen treatment for the first time in decades.

If you'd told us during the heyday of Wu-Tang Clan that RZA would eventually end up helming a legitimate martial-arts film, we would have called you crazy. But here we are, just under a month until the release of his directorial debut, “The Man With The Iron Fists,” and we still can’t believe it’s actually happening. To build anticipation, new artwork and stills have dropped, and they’re really cool.

Get out the old bag of salt, and set skepticism phasers to stun, as yet another rumor for a comic book movie that is likely three years away has popped up. And no, we're not talking about "The Avengers 2."
