The sand in the hour glass continues to grow smaller and smaller as by this time next Friday, fans will have already stumbled out, bleary eyed from the Batman trilogy marathon at theaters around the country. But as is the case with "The Dark Knight Rises," until then, we only know as much as Warner Bros. and the secretive Christopher Nolan wants to tell us about what's in store for Bruce Wayne in his final outing. So until next week, these images will have to suffice.

While Harvey Weinstein usually lets his marketing department do the work for him, he's been working the press pretty hard himself the past few weeks. Not only does he have his little arthouse hit "The Intouchables" to stump for, but a slate of eagerly awaited films including John Hillcoat's "Lawless," Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master," David O. Russell's "Silver Linings Playbook" and of course, Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained," which hits Comic-Con Saturday, promising a brand-new batch of footage to wow the crowds. But in talking with Movies.com, he dropped some little nuggets about two particular films from the past that are still kicking with life.

Comic-Con kicked off in full force today, and you don't have to be in San Diego to get the goodies. Not long after they showed off a sizzle reel to the crowd in Hall H, Disney went ahead and dumped the first trailer for "Oz The Great And Powerful" online, and yeah, it's actually pretty impressive.

Considering the grosses after just two films ($1.3 billion), this shouldn't be a surprise. DreamWorks Animation is giving the go-ahead for a third "Kung Fu Panda" film which was likely a no-brainer as last year "Kung Fu Panda 2" more than confirmed audiences are in love with the franchise. Voiced by Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Dustin Hoffman, Seth Rogen and Lucy Liu, there's no word on who will direct the third installment, but so far there's been a different group of filmmakers for every film, with only producer Melissa Cobb and screenwriter Jonathan Aibel remaining as two of the major above-the-line creative forces.

Of all the Judd Apatow-like films that hit the market after the all-around writer-director-producer made a splash in 2007 with "Knocked Up," few were as enjoyable as writer-director John Hamburg's "I Love You, Man." Sure, it did little to distance itself from the Apatow brand by cribbing two of Apatow's go-to men, Jason Segel and Paul Rudd, but it was a sweet-hearted and hilarious bromance that nearly made any hint that it was abiding to a strict comedic success formula vanish.

An odd, and potentially disappointing move on the surface, but a keen and cagey one from a political perspective. In an L.A. Times article with director Peter Jackson about what to expect from his "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" presentation at Comic-Con this weekend, the Kiwi director revealed he would not be showing the film in 3D and or in its 48 frames per second state.
