It looks like Kevin Costner isn't the only one from this summer's miniseries hit "Hatfields & McCoys" who is going to get a nice career bump. His co-star Bill Paxton is now lining up his own big budget role, alongside none other than Tom Cruise.

While he isn't berating inanimate objects, Clint Eastwood makes movies, and this Friday he'll take his cantankerous self to the baseball diamond in "Trouble With The Curve" (review here). It's another rare acting outing for the man who has mostly spent the last little while behind the camera, but that doesn't mean he still isn't in demand. It was just last month that producer Avi Lerner boasted that he had Nic Cage on board for "The Expendables 3" with plans to approach some new names like Wesley Snipes, Harrison Ford and yes, Eastwood. Well, there's one phone call that Lerner can probably take off his list.

We have to admit, given how long this movie has been kicking around in development, we've been wary of any news. Indeed, the last we heard anything about the movie was in the spring when Hugh Jackman -- who was originally attached over two years ago when Antoine Fuqua was going to direct  -- came back on board, with "Incendies" helmer Denis Villeneuve behind the camara with promises of a November 2013 release. And then nothing. But it looks like the wheels are in motion as another talent has come on board.

Well, with TIFF now done for another year, there are still some big titles left to pick up, and one of them if Dan Alagrant's "Greetings From Tim Buckley." While its officially sanctioned rival project "Mystery White Boy" is still having trouble getting off the ground, with new director Amy Berg attached last week, and leading man Reeve Carney possibly moving on, 'Greetings' hit Toronto and presented "Gossip Girl" star Penn Badgley as the late, great Jeff Buckley. And you know what? He was pretty damn good.

It's Tolkien Week, so Warner Bros. is carpet-bombing the interwebs with promotional material for "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" all in anticipation of the brand-new trailer coming tomorrow. And the big question WB will have to answer is how can they get audiences back in the same numbers that came out to make "The Lord Of The Rings" trilogy a nearly $3 billion worldwide smash? Hopefully Peter Jackson and co. will be bringing something both familiar and fresh.

Well, it won't be the director's cut that was rumored ever so briefly, but the epic finale to Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy "The Dark Knight Rises," is on its way to home video, and following the pattern set by the director's last two films, it's coming just in time for Christmas.

Now in cinemas in the U.K., and having already rolled its way through TIFF, Joe Wright's sumptuous "Anna Karenina" hasn't quite taken off as an awards season contender. While many admire the picture, it hasn't garnered full on fervor (though we really dig it), but one thing most people can agree on is that it looks fantastic. And not only that, Wright has staged this thing beautifully with some breathtaking sequences -- aided by the decision to shoot the picture almost like a stage production -- adding to the visual fireworks on display. There are still a couple of months before it lands stateside, but a host of new images are here to give you the best look at the movie yet.

With "The Avengers" headed to home video next week, Marvel Phase One now fades into the sunset, and Phase Two is already underway with "Iron Man 3" in front of cameras. And with a full slate over the next few years, under the stewardship of Joss Whedon, with "Thor: The Dark World," "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "Guardians Of The Galaxy" also on the way all leading towards "The Avengers 2," it's no surprise that the superhero roster is going to get bigger.

While Martin Papazian may not be a household name yet, he's quietly been building up a resume that includes stints on "Supernatural," "Dexter" and "24" with an appearance in this summer's "The Amazing Spider-Man" as well. But sometimes if you want to get a meaty, leading role you have to make the magic happen yourself, and that's just what he's done as writer, director and star of his feature helming debut "Least Among Saints."
