A wild night out needs to be accompanied by an appropriate soundtrack, and while the tunes compiled for "Fun Size" won't go down in history as one of the all time greats, it should turn some younger ears on to a least a few decent tracks.

To much of the world, the stars and writers of "Sightseers" are still only vaguely familiar at best. Alice Lowe was perhaps the best known, thanks to being one of the principle cast members of the cult comedy classic "Garth Marenghi's Darkplace," and for an appearance in "Hot Fuzz," while Steve Oram is a fixture on the UK comedy circuit, but has mostly taken fairly small film and TV roles so far.

British filmmaker Mike Leigh has, like many directors who make improvisation a key part of their process, developed something of a rep company over the years, actors like Lesley Manville, Jim Broadbent, Eddie Marsan, Adrian Scarborough, Imelda Staunton and Phil Davis, who've all regularly returned to work with the director. But if Leigh has a De Niro to his Scorsese, a Kinski to his Herzog, it's probably Timothy Spall, who had a break-out role in 1990's "Life Is Sweet," before starring in "Secrets & Lies," "Topsy Turvy" and "All Or Nothing" over the next decade or so.

With every studio regime change there remains a number of promising projects left to die a slow death in turnaround, and when 20th Century Fox CEO Tom Rothman stepped down in September this was certainly the case. The first casualty turned out to be the adaptation of beloved children's book "Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" -- with both Lisa Cholodenko and Steve Carell attached -- but now after nearly a month of studio bargaining it seems the film has found a more family-friendly home.

While remaining the constant between two recent projects propelled by excellent word-of-mouth, "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" and “Pitch Perfect” actress Anna Kendrick nonetheless proved her 2010 Oscar nomination a worthy pick. While that honor was for her supporting work opposite George Clooney in “Up In The Air,” she's slowly taken more of a central role starting with 'Pitch,' and now she's found another starring project that keeps her singing talents in focus yet again.

Even as this week's "Silent Hill: Revelations" creeps into theaters, the search for a good -- or at least watchable -- video game movie continues. But game titans Ubisoft are at least being pro-active, taking a leaf from Marvel's approach and deciding to develop and partially finance their own movies, starting with one of their own crown jewels, the "Assassin's Creed" franchise.

If anyone knows how to toe the line between the dark and funny, it's Werner Herzog. In both his documentaries and features, the director often sheds a light on the absurdities of even the most harrowing of situations involving his characters, and he's signed up to helm a new project that will once again find him in uniquely tricky territory.

After sketchy set photos and first look images that teased rather than revealed, with the first trailer set to hit tomorrow, a fresh batch of new images from "Iron Man 3" have arrived promising both action and romance, just as the fans expect. And as Marvel honcho Kevin Feige explains, Tony Stark will be facing his gravest threat yet.

It's simple math. "Paranormal Activity 4" cost $5 million to make, opened to $56 million worldwide this weekend = "Paranormal Activity 5" getting the greenlight. If you keep going to these, they're gonna keep making 'em....
