While the accountants in Hollywood spend Monday morning figuring out which movie came out on top in a tightly fought, though overall lukewarm weekend at the box office, no matter how it plays out, David Ayer will be happy. His latest cops-in-Los-Angeles flick "End Of Watch" took home decent notices, and was one of three angling for the #1 slot. And with his next cop movie "Breacher" gearing up to shoot in October, it already has a quote-worthy endorsement from its star Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Despite telling everyone that he was, in no uncertain terms, done with the “Transformers” franchise after 2011’s “Transformers: Dark Of The Moon,” Victoria’s Secret model connoisseur Michael Bay -- to the surprise of no one -- signed up for a fourth film. In an interview with the Huffington Post, the fireball aficionado explains why he returned to the franchise.

After talking a big game at Comic-Con earlier this year, telling Collider that despite shooting digitally -- the film was shot on the RED EPIC -- the film was not intended for 3D post-conversion because of the sheer scale of the robots and monster (the stereoscopic process makes objects appear smaller than their 2D counterparts), it was revealed a couple of weeks ago that Guillermo Del Toro’s “Pacific Rim” would, in fact, be converted into 3D. At the time trade reports suggested that the decision was made in spite of del Toro’s wishes, but it appears that the “Pan’s Labyrinth” filmmaker readily agreed to a conversion, with some caveats.

Well, Tolkien Week is over, and after seven days that saw new images and a brand new trailer that featured alternate endings for some reason from "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," you would think that would be all for now. But alas, it's not so, as the Warner Bros. marketing train continues with a brand new one sheet for the movie.

Before he made his first feature film outing with "The Seventh Continent" in 1989, Michael Haneke logged a considerable amount of time on TV projects. They certainly aren't the easiest efforts to track down, and are likely a fascinating window into the development of the celebrated director, but thanks to the magic of the interwebs, one of his earliest endeavors is now available for your weekend viewing.

'Taken 2' Soundtrack Features Two Key Songs From 'Drive' & More

Listen, we know that songs are never just used once, and popular tunes can be utilized across any number of films. And if we're going to get technical about this whole thing, Kavinsky & Lovefoxx's "Nightcall" actually featured on "The Lincoln Lawyer" soundtrack before it became massive with "Drive" (though music supervisor Eric Craig worked on both films). But it's undeniable that Nicolas Winding Refn's film was one of the big soundtrack stories of 2011, spawning a "Drive" tour with the bands this spring, and a vinyl reissue of the album this summer, so this move by whoever is working on "Taken 2" feels a bit lazy.

Actresses Line Up To Play Carly Simon & Carole King In 'Girls Like Us' With Taylor Swift As Joni Mitchell

How many women does it take to greenlight a movie about folk legends Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon and Carole King? Well, more than one at any rate as the developing biopic "Girls Like Us" continues moving at Sony. Back in the spring Taylor Swift and Alison Pill were contending for the parts of Mitchell and King, and while the former seems to have gone through, the latter is facing some competition, as more actresses line up to play Simon. And it's a pretty strong list of talent in the mix.

For those of you keeping track, it’s Back-to-School Night, Part Deux at the cinemas this weekend. First stop, Sociology, where you’ll note the detailed study on how high school experiences impact the rest of one’s life. Biology is next, and a presentation on teen pregnancy. Then you’ll proceed to baseball in Gym, advanced studies in mise en place in Home Ec, and creating a video game OR filming a porno in Technology. In an unrelated note, there are also lots of cops on screen.

Well, this is a pretty easy way to do it. Want to sell your movie as life-affirming and soul stirring? Just slap some Sigur Rós and Coldplay on there and let it do the work. Of course, if you have a movie that already comes with some pretty breathtaking imagery, that certainly helps.

After an unofficial trailer dropped last week and was quickly scrubbed from the Internet, Radius and The Weinstein Company have finally unveiled the official trailer for "The Details." And while this spot contains familiar elements like dialogue and characters, it's still no less quirky (and compelling) that the decidedly odder version that preceded it.
