Posters, posters, posters, posters, posters and now even more posters. If there has been one distinct thread through The Weinstein Company's marketing campaign for "Killing Them Softly," it has been an array of terrifically stylized one sheets for the movie. But whether that translates into audience interest or box office success remains to be seen.

Jean Grey or not Jean Grey? That is the question. With rumors landing a few days ago that Famke Janssen shot a cameo in "The Wolverine," the presumption was that the film would precede the "X-Men" trilogy of pictures. But the answer to that presumption is an emphatic "no" from director James Mangold.

Geez, we had pretty much forgotten about this one. With production starting over two years ago, it has taken a very long time for this movie to see the light of day. While there has been smattering of stills and even a trailer at the beginning of the year, "Upside Down," starring Kirsten Dunst and Jim Sturgess, has failed to materialize, not even with a perfunctory festival screening somewhere on the circuit. But the film will finally be coming to theaters next year, apparently tricked out a bit to dazzle your eyeballs.

Establishing himself as an actor capable of both dramatic heavy lifting and action movie flexibility, one thing Clive Owen hasn't done very often is comedy. Sure, there was "Duplicity" and "Shoot 'Em Up" we suppose (not to mention a cameo role in "The Pink Panther" redo), but Owen is not a guy you would typically expect to lead a big screen laffer. But in a nice change from the everyday, Owen is going to give it a shot.

Is the magic already gone between Ryan Gosling and Nicolas Winding Refn? Will "Drive" and "Only God Forgives" be the only record of their bromance that captivated the cinematic world? This much is certain: Gosling will no longer be starring in the long-developing "Logan's Run" remake.

Earlier today we ran a feature on actors who should possibly fire their agents and set their careers in a new direction. But one guy who doesn't need that advice is Bradley Cooper. The actor will definitely turn heads in David O. Russell's "Silver Linings Playbook" next month, and he'll reteam with the helmer for his next feature shooting early in 2013. Plus, next year he features in Derek Cianfrance's "The Place Beyond The Pines" and Susanne Bier's "Serena" (and of course, he's back for one last run with the Wolfpack in "The Hangover Part III"). He's staying the course of working with interesting talent and material.

Wide Release Of Kathryn Bigelow's 'Zero Dark Thirty' May Be Pushed Back To January 2013

To put it bluntly, the next two months at the multiplex are fucked. Between holiday blockbusters and dramatic fare gunning for Oscars, there is an unbelievable amount of new movies on the way, and it's no surprise that some titles are going to shimmy and shift to get the best exposure possible. But when it concerns a highly anticipated movie about one of the most dramatic events in recent American history, in what could be a major awards season player, we have to sit up and take notice. Sony is looking at forgoing the wide release of Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty" on December 19th for a New York and Los Angeles bow and platform release. Does this mean the movie isn't a contender? Let's not sweat it just yet.

Young people doing bad things is a familiar trope in indie flicks, featuring in everything from "The Rules Of Attraction" to "Cruel Intentions" to "The Informers" and more. Amber Heard has already been down that path as the star of "The Informers," and once again it looks like she'll be in a film where everyone seems just a little bit crooked.

Even though he has spent the last decade ringing the death knell for cinema, Peter Greenaway continues to work in the format anyway, either as a way to go down with the ship, or perhaps to try and right the course (or maybe both). But onward he goes nonetheless, and next month he'll be unveiling his latest, "Goltzius And The Pelican Company," at the Rome Film Festival. A few pics from the film have arrived to give folks a preview.

Originally slated to shoot in March 2011, with a promising cast including Paz Vega, Willem Dafoe and Michelle Rodriguez, Paul Schrader's long brewing "The Jesuit" never got off the ground. Instead, he moved to the micro-indie world and shot "The Canyons" with porn star James Deen and Lindsay Lohan, which is currently in post, and while we had hoped he might get back to "The Jesuit," it looks like he has passed the job on to someone else.
