Eyebrows were raised when "The Great Gatsby" was removed from its late-December release, rescheduled for next spring. The Baz Luhrmann picture was just one of many Warner Bros. films possibly angling for Oscar nominations, but with a crowded slate, and the difficulty in securing a large percentage of 3D screens, it seemed doubtful that the F. Scott Fitzgerald would be a Christmas gift to viewers. But could it be that, with a new May 10, 2013 date, Luhrmann's film is using that time to spruce up the soundtrack?

After 12 years immersed (lost?) in the world of motion-capture, Robert Zemeckis re-emerges into live-action filmmaking for “Flight,” an engaging and initially very promising drama about alcoholism, redemption and forgiveness that grows uneven and long winded as it progresses, clocking in just under 2 hours and 20 minutes. Featuring a thrilling and terrifying opening, plus potent and moving elements of a conventional but admirable morality drama, “Flight" is often undone by its very unsubtle choices and its problematic and strained last act.

Every year brings with it a handful of remakes, but in 2013 horror fans will see two classics of the genre get a redo. Will they live up to their predecessors and stand out on their own? Time will tell, but until then, here are a couple of new looks.

Film history is littered with incarnations of movies that could've been made under a different situation with an entirely different cast, but for various reasons just didn't work out. Just look at Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" which at one point was gearing up to go with Philip Seymour Hoffman and Jeremy Renner in the leads, with Reese Witherspoon apparently offered a role (mostly likely the part eventually played by Amy Adams) with Amanda Seyfried, Emma Stone and Deborah Ann Woll all being considered for the smaller role of Elizabeth in the picture. And while Anderson eventually re-mounted the picture that we know today, it's interesting to imagine what might have been. And now there's another similar little morsel to ponder over.

The great escape artist and magician Harry Houdini was all the rage earlier this year. DreamWorks acquired a Houdini-centered spec script from “Changeling” writer J. Michael Straczynski called “Voices From The Dead,” Sony enlisted the upcoming "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" filmmaker Francis Lawrence to direct an untitled biopic and Summit paired with hot new screenwriter Noah Oppenheim (the "WarGames" remake) to adapt "The Secret Life of Houdini."

Break out the pens (or laptops), as some new scribes have been hired to get some long-in-development projects off the ground. First up is Universal’s long-gestating remake of "Creature from the Black Lagoon." "The Hunger Games" filmmaker Gary Ross has been trying to get this project off the ground for several years because his father, Arthur A. Ross, wrote the original 1954 movie. Over the years, he has written a script, as did Tedi Sarafian ("Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines"), but obviously neither of them came to fruition.

Two guys whose careers both took a bit of a bruising in the summer of 2011 with two tentpoles that were critically reviled and underperformed, are teaming up for a project that will hopefully see them reversing their fortunes together.

Hello, In Theaters friends! I’m back (for a week)! Did you miss me? Doesn’t Emma take good care of you? She writes better headlines than I do. But I celebrate Cage’s Festival of Wigs more! Hope you all have your Oscar racing pants on because that one is underway! In fact, I will be giving out a few awards of my own... This week sees the release of TIFF darling “Argo,” Ben Affleck’s Iran hostage thrilla, the return of truly delightful twisted person Martin McDonagh with “Seven Psychopaths,” something called “Sinister,” Kevin James getting punched and falling down a lot in “Here Comes the Boom,” and Ayn Rand propaganda! Fun times to be had by all, even the psychopaths. There’s also a metric butt-ton of indie festival goodness making its way into local art houses and multiplexes so now might be time to catch up with the cool kids (by cool kids I mean film bloggers who go to all the festivals... whether or not they are cool is up to you!).

There is nothing Hollywood likes better than rehashing ideas. So even though Millenium Entertainment were late the party -- with production company 1984 Private Defense Contractors beating them to the idea of a female "The Expendables" and casting Gina Carano and Katee Sackhoff -- they are getting the ball rolling on their own riff on the riff of an idea that is already totally fucking played out.
