Maybe this is why he dropped out of Wes Anderson's "Grand Budapest Hotel"? Whatever the reason, at the very least we heartily endorse Johnny Depp's next move, as he has landed a role in a film that will now be leap frogging its way up Most Anticipated lists.

Shot way back in 2011 and originally slated to be released next month by Warner Bros. before being pushed to a still unknown 2013 date, word has been deafeningly quiet around Alfonso Cuarón's "Gravity." With nothing in the way of stills or posters, the movie is still somewhat of a mystery, though it does seem like we're inching slowly toward some fresh news about the movie.

Making its way through a variety of festivals including Cannes, Toronto, London and Stockholm next month, the buzz around the Ken Burns, David McMahon and Sarah Burns documentary "The Central Park Five" has been building, and generating a lot of discussion. Tackling one of the most publicized crimes of the '80s in New York City, an incident which also caught the nation's attention, this new film reveals a haunting truth about a quest for justice gone very wrong.

Sequelized, remade and rebooted over the years, it speaks to the power of John Carpenter's 1978 horror classic "Halloween" that it still tops all of its subsequent iterations. At thirty-four years old, the film still remains a thrill, but if you haven't seen it or want a rare chance to see it on the big screen with an excited crowd, now's your chance.

Despite “Wanted” running up decent domestic grosses, it’s been an unfathomably long -- by Hollywood standards -- four years with no sequel since its initial run. While creatively speaking it seemed like there was no need, or no way, for a sequel to happen -- most of the major characters were killed in the climax, including (SPOILER) Angelina Jolie -- the studio has steadily pushed forward with their plans, and one of the film’s writers recently spoke about the direction they’re taking the film.

As one of our team wrote yesterday about "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey": "I for one will be happy to pull up some popcorn and sit down for 2 ½ (and hopefully not more) hours with moderately tempered expectations and enjoy what I can." It looks like he might want to put his ass into training, as Peter Jackson has revealed the runtime for the first movie in the trilogy and, not surprisingly, it's very, very long.

It's almost that time again.... Arriving like clockwork, it seems every year or so we get another Nicholas Sparks movie adaptation (in 2010 we were lucky enough to get two movies based on his books!). And for his fanbase that likes to hear a variation on the same mediocre, manipulative story over and and over and over and over again, "Safe Haven" will be a warm, vanilla pillow of familiarity and fake emotion.
