What do we know about the casting of Finnick Odair in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire"? That none of the names mentioned or rumored so far have panned out. Robert Pattinson was the first to to kibosh rumors about his potential involvement, while Taylor Kitsch followed suit not long after. And it seems none of the names, including Armie Hammer and Garrett Hedlund, are in contention at this point.

As students head into summer and free of worrying about homework, teachers, tests and whatever else is on their mind, next fall, a whole new batch of kids will be entering high school for the first time. It can be a terrifying, alienating experience, making the already rough years of adolescence even more difficult, but at least at the cinema, there will be a movie that understands exactly what they're going through.

With Marvel's upcoming slate featuring a trio of sequels -- "Iron Man 3," "Thor 2" and a follow-up to "Captain America: The First Avenger" -- speculation has been running high and wide about what their next standalone movie character might be. We're not going to run through them all again, but remember, it was just a couple of weeks ago when Marvel honcho Kevin Feige said there were two more unannounced movies in the works. And if this report is accurate, you can probably knock off one of them.

While there are many who will swear that Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon was intentionally designed to sync up perfectly with "The Wizard of Oz," sometimes there are just happy coincidences. And that's what you could probably call this intriguing re-edit of the bank robbery sequence that opens Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight."

Well, if the set pics so far are anything to go by, filming on Terrence Malick's "Knight of Cups" has been absolutely delightful. If there's heavy drama to found in the picture, we haven't seen it yet as Christian Bale has been happily frolicking with Wes Bentley and Natalie Portman in the snaps that have made it online. And now, a few more of Bale and Portman riding in a classic convertible with the wind in their hair have made their way to the interwebs.

Is the political comedy "The Campaign" going to resonate with voters who are gearing up for the 2012 U.S. Presidential election later this year? Is this the closest thing we're going to get to a Seth Galifianakis movie? Seth, of course, being the hilarious "fake brother" character Zach Galifianakis created early on his career who is fey and effeminate and feels and sounds an awful lot like the character Galifianakis plays in this film. We'll soon find out.

Two of the finest scores of 2011 belonged to one man: Alberto Iglesias. The composer who frequently works with Pedro Almodovar didn't get an Oscar nomination for his work on "The Skin I Live In" (though he should have), but did get the nod for his equally impressive work on "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy." And now his talents have been enlisted for another high profile film, and one that is quite different than those two pictures.

Ever since "Cowboys & Aliens" kinda tanked hard last summer, there haven't been many directorial projects linked to Jon Favreau. Aside from the brewing "Magic Kingdom" (which itself seems to have stalled out), Favreau kept busy directing the pilot for the J.J. Abrams produced series "Revolution" and taking on a few acting gigs in "Iron Man 3," "Identity Thief" and the forthcoming "People Like Us." But it looks like another supersize project could be his if it all works out.
