And just like that, "Dom Hemingway" has rounded out its cast to join Jude Law and "Withnail & I" star Richard E. Grant, and is headed in front of cameras as planned. First announced this spring around the Cannes Film Festival, the ratio of projects unveiled to those actually having a chance to get made is probably a 50/50 shot, but lo and behold, this one is sticking to the plan.

"Godzilla" is happening, and likely realizing just how important (and potentially lucrative) this franchise is, Legendary and Warner Bros. are making sure everything is done to ensure the best movie possible. While Comic-Con attendees got a memorable teaser this summer, the unveiling was also likely a testing ground of sorts, and you can bet that if response was muted, the studio wouldn't have booked a 2014 release. The wheels are firmly in motion for "Monsters" director Gareth Edwards' first stab at the blockbuster pie, but before casting begins, the script will get one last, tiny polish.

While a truly original and interesting movie like Charlie Kaufman's "Frank or Francis" struggles to scrape together the $10 million dollars more it needs to get made, it's a pretty good indication of where we're at these days that movies based on Hasbro games/toys "Monopoly," "Action Man" and "Hungry Hungry Hippos" are happening. Because who among us hasn't been sitting down during the fourth hour of a grueling game of "Monopoly" only to say, "Man, this would make a really great movie!"

Even if you aren’t morally opposed to the idea of sequels, it’s hard to fathom that a long-dormant – yet still incredibly popular – title or franchise could produce a sequel that would live up to the expectations of the fans. For every time a studio thinks that a “Ghostbusters 3” or “The Dark Crystal 2” is a good idea, there’s examples like “The Godfather Part 3,” “Tron: Legacy” or at the bottom of that barrel – “The Son of Mask.”

As the poster for "Parker" with Jason Statham proved, sometimes you just gotta roll with what people know. And just as a poster for a Jason Statham movie demands that Jason Statham be featured prominently on it so audiences know that Jason Statham is in it, the same rule applies to Tom Cruise.

Well, that was inevitable. Not even 007 himself could stop Adele's "Skyfall" from leaking early (it's officially set for a premiere at 7:07 p.m. EST tonight or 0:07 am in the U.K. -- you get the connection, right?) and now that it's arrived via a rogue French radio station (sacre bleu!), it confirms that it's as strong as we had hoped.

Credit where credit is due: The Weinstein Company is certainly making a push for Andrew Dominik's "Killing Them Softly" that will hopefully result in a solid reception for the film at the box office (and with awards-type folks). And unlike the baffling and dull infographic road they went down with "Lawless" (and are starting to go down with "Django Unchained"), they are instead putting out some killer one sheets for the movie that will certainly get more eyes on them.

Well, the cat is now out of the bag. The Twittersphere has been speculating for the past day or so about what the New York Film Festival had up their sleeve for their secret screening on Monday. Last year it was a work-in-progress look at Martin Scorsese's "Hugo," and this year too, organizers were hinting that it would be something not quite finished, that would still be a movie no one else has seen. Would it be "Stoker," footage of which was unspooled last night at the festival's tribute for Nicole Kidman? "Django Unchained" perhaps? Or maybe "Promised Land"? Nope. instead it's going to be one of the big Oscar contenders of the year.

Listen, we know it's reductive to diminish an actor to a role he played over twenty years ago (holy fuck, it's been that long? -- we're feeling old...) but if we had said "Devin Ratray" your eyes would have glazed over, and you would have clicked on to something. But yes, Buzz McCallister himself from "Home Alone" will be up to no good in Alexander Payne's "Nebraska."

Could Disney deliver the inventive animated thrill we usually except from Pixar in 2012? It seems the roles between the two have been reversed because while the latter treads water and begins to lean on sequels, the former is bringing something genuinely exciting to the big screen.
