While it remains to be seen if American audiences will take a shine to the Brit comedy smash "The Inbetweeners Movie" when it lands on our shores next month, or if the MTV remake of the hit show that spawned it will find the teenage audience it's looking for, it seems plans are afoot for a sequel.

Considering "300: Battle of Artemisia" isn't continuing the tale set forth by its predecessor, "300," it's not a complete shock that Gerard Butler won't be returning to reprise his role as King Leonidas. However, according to producer Bernie Goldman, there was a part for him and Lena Headey in the script -- if he wanted it. “It’s a different story. [However] there’s a small part for Lena [Headey]. There’s a small part for Gerry [Butler],” he said last fall. But according to Butler, appearing in the movie just isn't his bag, bro.

The sorry saga of David O. Russell's "Nailed" is really a cautionary tale of working with shady financiers. The tale is one that has been told a few times over in the past couple of years, but in case you missed out, we'll recap it for you.

It's been one of the most sought-after roles in recent Hollywood casting history, one that names like Armie Hammer, Taylor Kitsch, Garret Hedlund and even Robert Pattinson were (mostly erroneously) linked to. And after several months, it's finally been filled, with Lionsgate announcing via a press release that Sam Claflin, the 26-year-old British actor who's so far featured in "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" and "Snow White and the Huntsman," has officially signed on to play Finnick Odair in hotly anticipated sequel "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."

Watch: Two Clips From Season 3 Of 'Downton Abbey,' Including New Addition Shirley MacLaine

After the hugely disappointing second season of the show, which crossed over from trashily entertaining to just plain dull, we were wondering if there was anything that could win us back to the third season of smash-hit costume drama "Downton Abbey." And then creator Julian Fellowes went and cast Shirley MacLaine. The 78-year-old veteran Hollywood star, famous for films like "The Apartment" and "Terms of Endearment" among many, many others, is joining the show's cast as the mother of Elizabeth McGovern's Countess of Grantham, and the potential to watch her trade barbs with Maggie Smith is certainly enough to have us setting the DVR for new episodes.

So it was only yesterday that we were discussing the possibility of Jim Carrey joining the sequel to 2010’s “Kick-Ass” – a film the comedian is reportedly a big fan of. He would be joining a cast that has Aaron Johnson, Chloë Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and maybe even Nicolas Cage all returning, as well as a handful of new additions including Donald Faison and Morris Chestnut. But even yesterday it looked like a long shot, and despite Carrey’s apparent love of Matthew Vaughn’s film, The Hollywood Reporter is saying that their sources think the chances of Carrey taking the role of Colonel Stars (a mobster-turned-fundamentalist-Christian-turned-superhero-recruiter) are slim -- presumably the smaller budget of the sequel to the underperfoming original can't quite afford him.

With only a little more than two months before release, all we've seen of Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" is one official image. Is it a matter of confidence? A knowledge that people are going to want to see a biopic of the legendary President, directed by America's favorite filmmaker, and starring one of the most-lauded actors of the last few decades, regardless of what the promotional material looks like? Is it an attempt to not be seen as the Oscar front-runner too far in advance? Or is something else going on?

So, is "End Of Watch" yet another familiar cop drama from David Ayer just dressed up in POV/found footage aesthetics or does it truly have something new to say about being a cop in Los Angeles? We'll find out soon enough, but as this new trailer bears out, it certainly won't be lacking energy.

James Franco Has Sort-Of-Remade William Friedkin's 'Cruising' For An Art Project

Is it just us who find it increasingly hard to get enthused about James Franco's new projects? We appreciate his broad-mindedness; the way he can go from blockbusters like "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes" to cheap action movies like the Jason Statham vehicle "Homefront" to indies like "About Cherry" to his own experimental directorial efforts like "Sal." But it's partly the sheer volume of the announcements -- with something new coming every few days, seemingly -- and partly how obscure some of them sound, that's given us something close to Franco fatigue.
