Remember this spring when it was announced that Kellan Lutz and Spencer Locke were going to be Tarzan and Jane in "Tarzan 3D"? Yeah, we barely do either. But apparently production moved ahead and this thing is for real, as a trailer has dropped, but it'll make you wonder why they're bothering in the first place.

Oh to be young, in love and ready to the fight "the man." Fueled the spirit of May 1968, but set in the early '70s, and telling a semi-autobiographical tale, the latest from Olivier Assayas buzzes with the energy of those looking to change the state of the world, and you can get a peek of what he has conjured up in the first international trailer for "Something In The Air." 

Lee Daniels Says 'The Butler' The Closest He's Come To Doing "Work-For-Hire," Calls It "A Big Compromise"

If you can say anything about Lee Daniels, it's that he's got a distinct voice. Whether it always works is another topic entirely, but over the course of the three films now -- "Shadowboxer" (which got a great Commentary Of The Damned feature at the AV Club), awards horse "Precious" and the pulpy, divisive "The Paperboy" -- he has made pictures that are completely his own. But it seems that his next effort, "The Butler," which boasts yet another star-studded ensemble, will see the director dialing it back a bit.

Before he was Loki, Tom Hiddleston was just another Brit actor trying to make it and early on he formed a bond with filmmaker Joanna Hogg. He appeared in her 2007 indie "Unrelated," and three years later starred in her sophomore feature "Archipelago." And while the world is now an oyster for the actor, and he likely has many more offers on his desk than ever before, he's reuniting with Hogg for her next film.

We don't see Kim Basinger up on the big screen all that often anymore. In fact, it was two years ago that she last popped up in the Zac Efron vehicle "Charlie St. Cloud." Before that movie was another two year gap, with 2008 seeing her in three pictures: "The Burning Plain," "The Informers" and something called "While She Was Out." But the actress is coming out of the woodwork once again, for a movie that will likely be more worth her time than most of her recent resume.

How to you get someone to show up to your event? Give them an award. And in the case of the Rome Film Festival, you get a world premiere out of it too. While it may not be a high profile title like the rumored "Django Unchained," for those in Italy looking for a side order of kick ass along with their heady festival stew, Walter Hill has just what you're looking for.

Even as someone who grew up on bank holiday viewings of the series, it's sometimes hard to get truly enthusiastic about the release of a new Bond movie. We'll always go and see a new 007 adventure, but the longevity of the series, and the relatively formulaic nature of it, means that it's something we've come to take for granted, not least because for every great installment like a "Goldeneye" or a "Casino Royale," there's a "Die Another Day" or "Quantum Of Solace" right behind it to kill the mood.

With "Hitchcock" now in the Oscar hunt, and set to hit theaters next month, we're going to be seeing a lot more from this film in the coming weeks. But we just hope the rollout gets a bit smoother as it goes along.

Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, independent movies used to curate interesting and savvy soundtracks featuring independent, lesser-known artists. Big budget films used to feature fairly predictable top 40 bands, but everyone was still pretty much happy. Then along came the mp3 industry crash of the early aughts, and struggling musicians learned that licensing their music to soundtracks was often lucrative; especially when they weren't small indie films with no budget. High and low disappeared, with everyone struggling to get a piece of the pie. Hence, the "Twilight" saga soon picked up songs from "cool" bands like Radiohead, Beck, Vampire Weekend, Iron & Wine, Thom Yorke, Muse, Metric, The Black Keys, Band of Horses, Death Cab for Cutie, Bon Iver and St. Vincent, etc.
