While he’s already hard at work shooting on the Forest Whitaker-led ensemble drama “The Butler” (which just got picked up by The Weinstein Company), Lee Daniels’ latest film “The Paperboy,” which had a less-than enthusiastic response at Cannes earlier this year, is headed to theaters and Millenium Entertainment have released a new clip from the film.

After nearly 150 shooting days, marked by delays due to dust and wind storms, and reported budget overruns, "The Lone Ranger" starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer has now wrapped filming. And now the editing process will begin as Gore Verbinski preps the movie for a summer release next year, but Disney is giving everyone a sneak peek today with a batch of new photos from TV show turned blockbuster.

You would think that given the release calendar for 2014 is still pretty wide open, studios wouldn't be crowding their major tentpoles close together, but already, March of that year is looking like it's going to be a wrestling match of competing films. And showdowns don't get much bigger than Tom Cruise vs. Angelina Jolie.

As the opening night film for the New York Film Festival, all eyes were on “Life of Pi,” the big-budget studio adaptation of Yann Martel’s best-seller from A-List director Ang Lee. And while some were focused on the spectacle of the film, from the enormous cost and logistical issues of filming to the colorful 3D that frames this story of survival, the one element that drove the filmmakers was the idea of faith.

Jude Law, Bill Murray, Angela Lansbury? Yep. Johnny Depp? It looks like he won't be checking into "The Grand Budapest Hotel" after all.

Marc Forster hasn't been having a great 2012, though there is light for him at the end of the tunnel. While "World War Z" has become such a fiasco that the film's star, Brad Pitt, won't even talk to him, Forster is quietly lining up options that he can tackle once the zombie epic is finished. Way, way back at the beginning of the year, he was attached to the completely ridiculous sounding "Cowboy Viking Ninja," and now he's got another project, one that sounds kind of like "Sucker Punch" mixed with "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?." Seriously.

Here's a fun fact: Peter Jackson had an ever so brief cameo in Edgar Wright's "Hot Fuzz" (so did Cate Blanchett, for the record). You know who else did? His future Bilbo Baggins, and now that actor will be taking in a role in "The World's End." So, small world right?

In case anyone was feeling too happy, the potential ruin of the human race is out in full celebratory regalia this weekend. Inescapable hit men, broken education systems, a Puritan-era killing machine, and a grifting mommy make up just a taste of the gleeful subject matter. And – for a lift – documentaries are here in spades this week as well, particularly those showcasing major political and social issues. And sports. Sometimes. Oh, is there an election soon? Or are we just gearing up for basketball season? Enjoy, movie lovers!

Stephen Frears is on a goddamn tear right now. He kicked off 2012 by heading to Sundance to premiere "Lay The Favorite," spent the spring shooting "Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight," and now will get another movie in front of cameras this fall. Damn. Who does he think he is, Terrence Malick?

While much has been made of feature filmmakers transitioning to cable, where there are more opportunities to tell original stories, it's not like networks don't like to have their own share of easy-sell properties. And one of the biggest trends to emerge in the past year is the sheer number of movies being developed into TV shows. In the past month we've seen news on "Fargo," "A Knight's Tale," and "The Good Shepherd" all headed to the small screen, and now another feature is joining their ranks.
