Despite his consistently surprising/worrying technological tweaks to the LOTR franchise with “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” Peter Jackson was nonetheless able to finally fit audience expectation with news that the first installment would run close to three hours. However, it seems this holiday season will require more perfectly timed bathroom breaks and comfy seats than initially realized, as another high-profile blockbuster has been touted to run near the 180-minute mark.

It's simple math: with a PG-13 rating, "Live Free Or Die Hard" earned more domestically and worldwide than any other installment in the franchise. And since the MPAA considers F-bombs to be worse than bullets, 20th Century Fox likely realizes that they can draw in those teens who don't see movies with their parents and keep up the action and excitement folks expect from the series. However, one thing that it can't include is John McClane's trademark "Yipee ki-yay motherfucker," because won't someone please think of the children. In 'Live Free' the expletive was interrupted by a gunshot, and whether or not this movie goes R (we doubt it), it looks like they've found another way around it.

While most of the promo material thus far for Walter Salles' "On the Road" have played up the steamy, sweaty, summery aspects of the film, Dean Morirarty and his pals also do a bit of winter traveling. And with the movie now just around the corner after hitting Cannes, getting recut, and unspooling once again at TIFF, a few more pieces of promo are here to get the word out.

As 23rd Bond chapter “Skyfall” preps for its public bow Stateside next month, and with many early reviews, including ours, calling it a fine return to franchise form, the pairing of Daniel Craig and director Sam Mendes looks to be one with a promising future if sustained. However, even in safe waters, Bond fans can still speculate toward the series’ future, and recently two lingering questions regarding dream additions to the series have finally been addressed.

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.
