Lakeshore Records will release the original soundtrack to the Weinstein Company comedy "Butter," starring Jennifer Garner, Ty Burrell, Olivia Wilde, Rob Corddry, Ashley Greene, Alicia Silverstone and Hugh Jackman, digitally on October 9th. The synopsis? When her husband (Ty Burrell) is unceremoniously asked to step down after taking first prize for fifteen years as the master Butter Carver at the Iowa State Fair, the limelight-seeking, ultra-competitive Laura Pickler (Garner) takes on a 12-year-old, African-American (Yara Shahidi) butter sculpting prodigy in a butter carving contest of epic proportions.

Wrapping earlier this summer, after a reported 130 day shoot, Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" went through quite a few cast changes as it rolled in front of cameras. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kevin Costner, Sacha Baron Cohen, Kurt Russell and Anthony LaPaglia all exited the picture at various points, and while replacements were found, it seems Tarantino had the brainstorm to put himself in the movie too.

Remember the days of pumping quarters into an arcade machine, or even blowing dust off a cartridge to get it to work? Those of us of a certain age certainly do, which is what makes the prospect of the otherwise forward looking "Wreck-It-Ralph" also seem positively quaint. Combining nostalgia for video games with a pretty clever concept, the upcoming Disney movie looks to be something that will hopefully raise the bar a bit from the standard family movie sphere.

Among the many delights within Louis C.K.'s Emmy-winning comedy, “Louie,” the most surprisingly delightful has been Parker Posey's two-episode arc as a deceptively perfect romantic partner. Somewhat scarce on the film/TV scene in the past few years, Posey has nonetheless re-emerged recently in a smattering of interesting projects, including the Grace Kelly biopic “Grace of Monaco,” and now a glimpse of her latest independent comedy, “Price Check” appears a solid continuation of the actress' recent comic streak.

A Missing Dog Can Save America & Tom Waits Owns A Rabbit In New Viral Ad & Clips From 'Seven Psychopaths'

With a title like "Seven Psychopaths" one might expect an "Expendables" for the horror genre with Freddy, Jason and Michael Myers all appearing in one movie, but you'd be wrong. "Seven Psychopaths" instead refers to Colin Farrell, Christopher Walken, Tom Waits, Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, Olga Kurylenko and Abbie Cornish, who star in Martin McDonagh's dark comedy about the kidnapping of a mobster's beloved Shih Tzu. On cast alone, the film looks to be worth it, to say nothing of McDonagh, whose "In Bruges" was a revelation, not only for Farrell's career, but for McDonagh's transition from playwright to filmmaker.

Remember back in May when everyone (including us) was deriding Tim Burton for his adaptation of "Dark Shadows" and claiming it was evidence that the director was doomed to make turdburgers like it and "Alice in Wonderland" and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" till the end of time? What a difference a few months makes, as it looks like everyone is in love with Burton again (including us) and his upcoming "Frankenweenie," the stop-motion animated big-screen version of his 1984 live-action short.

It’s been a hell of a year for “Bridesmaids” breakout star Melissa McCarthy -- she landed an Oscar nod for the Kristen Wiig-penned comedy and an Emmy for your parents’ favorite CBS sitcom “Mike & Molly” -- and she’s set to lead her first film with Jason Bateman in “Identity Thief.” With a dearth of comedies in the next few months, Universal has already started the ball rolling for comedy with two character one-sheets hitting the web yesterday.

One of the more pleasant surprises of the year was Seann William Scott’s turn in the Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg-penned hockey comedy “Goon.” The Canuck laffer has spawned something of a cult, with the movie being a favorite in some corners of the internet, in addition to it doing strong business north of the border. Now it looks like we’ll get to see the continuing adventures of the Halifax Highlanders on the big screen.

Henry Selick's Scrapped Disney/Pixar Project Might Be Headed Back To Laika

Back in August, Disney shut down production on Henry Selick's eagerly anticipated new stop-motion animated film, which at one point bore the name "Shademaker," for a myriad of reasons - the tone and story for the movie never solidified the way the studio wanted, the production was moving way too slowly, and Selick clashed frequently with the Pixar Brain Trust, who were overseeing the project in an advisory capacity. (The film was set to be Pixar's first stop-motion film, at least initially.) Earlier this month Disney quietly announced to shareholders that they were taking a $50 million hit on a canceled project, which ended up being "Shademaker," which to us signaled that the movie was dead and that the initial option for the filmmaker to take it to another studio had been exhausted. Well, it looks like Laika, the company behind this summer's brilliant "ParaNorman" and Selick's own "Coraline," could step in to rescue the movie.

With Rupert Wyatt bailing on the director's chair just over a week ago, 20th Century Fox now have a vacany to fill for "Dawn Of The Planet The Apes" and it's one they want to move on fast as a release date is on the horizon. So here comes the shortlist and it's both predictable and kind of totally random at the same time.
