We're sure that someone out there has had a better year than Channing Tatum. An Olympian who won multiple gold medals, for instance. Or someone who won nine figures in some kind of lottery. Or maybe the "Gangnam Style" guy. But in the film world, no one's had a better 2012 than Tatum. Somewhat mocked by many in years gone by, the actor kicked off the year by impressing in Steven Soderbergh's "Haywire," before having three $100 million+ smash hits in five months, in the shape of romantic drama "The Vow," acclaimed comedy "21 Jump Street" and Soderbergh's "Magic Mike," which Tatum also produced, and based on his own life. Wildly different films, but Tatum impressed in each, and has gone from a nearly-man to one of the most in-demand leading men around.

While "The Master" earned the most headlines this weekend for its record breaking limited run opening, another film also made an impressive bow. Nicholas Jarecki's financial world thriller "Arbitrage" began hitting theaters (and VOD) bringing in a solid $1.9 million at 197 locations. But even more, the movie is already earning some awards season chatter, particularly for Richard Gere who gives one of his best turns in recent memory. For Jarecki, making his feature film debut on the picture, he couldn't have asked for a better start and he's already got some some ambitious plans for his next outing.

So, There Might Be A 'Boondock Saints 3' For Some Reason

The oeuvre of Troy Duffy, such as it is, is made up entirely of "Boondock Saints" movies. His 1999 directorial debut for some reason earned itself a cult following, despite being a pretty tepid last gasp of post-Tarantino moviemaking but swapped out irony for deadpan earnestness that was barely stitched togther into something resembling a movie. Only Willem Dafoe seemed to realize he was in a camp movie, and gave a performance that was notably eccentric and memorable. Ten years later it was followed up with the dreadful "Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day." We thought that would be last stab at the wheezing "franchise," but alas, we were wrong.

Here's the deal with "Great Expectations." Either you're familiar with Charles Dickens' famed story and numerous adaptations or...you're not. If you fall into the former camp, you're likely wondering what compelling reason there is to check out Mike Newell's latest crack at it. If you're in the latter, you might be wondering what the gauze budget was for Helena Bonham Carter. In any event, a new U.K. trailer for the movie hopes to win over both sides.

While we continue to remain truly puzzled as to why Xavier Dolan's gorgeous, sprawling and lovely "Laurence Anyways" is continously unable to secure a U.S. distribution deal, the young filmmaker left Toronto with a prize under his arm. His latest film took home the Best Canadian Feature Film from TIFF, and as usual, Dolan is plowing ahead on his next project. This spring it was announced he would tackling the adaptation of the play "Tom a la Ferme," but after that he's got some big plans. Very big plans.
