If there has been one consensus out of the advance screenings for Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" thus far, is that's it's not something you can prepare for. While the movie has thus far received mostly glowing notices (check out our own review here), the film has also been described as difficult to embrace and perhaps even a little cold. Certainly, it's not something that mainstream audiences are going to flock to, but The Weinstein Company know this, and their gambit to build up the buzz in the weeks leading up to its bow at Venice and TIFF and then dropping it into limited release right after, is a caculated move to strike while the iron is hot.

Ordinarily, the idea of turning Lego into a movie is something that would make our stomach churn and eyes roll back into the far recesses of our head, but there is something about the approach "21 Jump Street" helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller (along with Chris McKay) are bringing to the movie. The plot is pretty inventive, centering on Emmett, a regular everyday little Lego figure, who is mistaken as a MasterBuilder and suddenly becomes part of a group on a quest to stop an evil tyrant from gluing everything together. It's basically an excuse to run through a variety of Lego worlds, and a pretty good one at that, and with Chris Pratt taking the lead and Will Arnett stopping by as Batman (awesome), we now hear of two more voices pitching in.

"Jane Got a Gun," the small-scale western starring Natalie Portman that recently attached "We Need to Talk About Kevin" filmmaker Lynne Ramsay as a director, could be getting some added firepower in the form of a white hot leading man, sex addict and occasional robot (in the movies, at least) Michael Fassbender. Vulture reports that the actor is in early talks for the film, which could start lensing early next year.

We seem to be in a classic Hollywood revival at the moment with three projects about or inspired by Hitchcock on the way -- "The Girl," "Hitchcock" and "Bates Motel" -- a film about Grace Kelly in "Grace Of Monaco," a new documentary about Marilyn Monroe hitting TIFF next month and more. And adding to the pile is "Fellini Black And White," which has nabbed a new actress to its already strong cast.

Wait, are they really calling the movie formerly known as "Moscow," and then "Untitled Jack Ryan Movie" plain old "Jack Ryan"? Is this movie about an accountant who can find a way to get you even bigger return next year? What about something like the badass titles of yesteryear like "Clear And Present Danger," "The Sum Of All Fears," and "The Hunt For Red October"? Bleh. Let's hope this is just a holding pattern and that Paramount change their minds, but anyway, the movie has a release date.

Next November marks the sad occasion of the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination, an event which still evokes very strong feelings. And of course to commemorate that day the true American way, there's going to be a movie (and probably a number of TV specials and countless reruns of Oliver Stone's "JFK"). And no, we're not talking about "Parkland" which Tom Hanks was recently announced to produce. Instead, it's "The Kennedy Detail," which as the title suggests, at least offers up a different angle on the affair.

With "The Expendables" and "Red" bringing the old people B-movie thing back into vogue, and while those films wink at '80s action movie conventions, "Dan Mintner: Badass For Hire" drives a truck through them. And who better to get on board than Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson?
