We gotta say, the concept for this is pretty clever. While studios are bending over backward to try and find popular video games to turn into movies (see the recent movement on "Need For Speed"), the folks over at Disney are celebrating the medium itself with their forthcoming "Wreck-It-Ralph."

Aside from the smash hit "The Vow" (which also happened to star Channing Tatum) there hasn't been much variety for the ladies who don't necessarily want to see to see superheroes, crude comedy or lots of explosions. But the promise of romance, comedy and yes, lots of attractive men taking their clothes off in "Magic Mike" should likely find an audience who haven't really been well served so far this year.

Musician Erykah Badu is certainly no stranger to controversy, and the psychedelic rock quartert The Flaming Lips are certainly no strangers to being, well, strange. So perhaps it’s not surprising that the mixture of the two would make for an entirely unwholesome blend of the odd and gratuitous.

Well, all of this year's comic book movies are pretty much squared away, with "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "The Dark Knight Rises" hitting theaters in the next month or so, we can now turn our attention to what's on the horizon, and early next year Matthew Vaughn will re-team with the cast of "X-Men: First Class" for a sequel. As usual, story details at the moment are being kept under lock and key, but that hasn't stopped nerds on the Internet from doing some digging, and some fresh intel has surfaced.

Ten years ago this month, "The Wire" premiered on HBO. While the show was mostly met with indifference at first, was routinely ignored by the Emmys and almost always faced cancellation from season to season, the show has obviously posthumusly grown in stature and is now well-regarded as one of the greatest shows to ever appear on television. Created by ex- Baltimore police reporter David Simon with the assistance of former Baltimore police detective Ed Burns, in many ways, 'The Wire" changed the game of TV with its scope of vision and longtail patience.

Smart and scathing, unpredictable and hilarious, you never quite know where you're going with Todd Solodnz, but the journey and experience is usually one you'll never forget. It's been a few years since "Life During Wartime," the director's quasi-sequel to "Happiness," and he's once again shifted gears, returning with another oddball treat. His latest is a broader sort of comedy than we're used to from the helmer, but one that retains his signature touch.

Willem Dafoe Still Baffled By Failure Of 'John Carter'; New Pixar Stamps Introduced

Today "John Carter" will be released on DVD and Blu-ray and, presumably, will be seen by a much larger audience than what turned up it when it was released theatrically this past spring. (The Blu-ray is a handsome, features-packed affair well worth picking up if you feel any love for the movie.) The film, which Disney recently admitted would cost the studio $200 million in lost profit, quickly became a cautionary fable about what happens when you try to launch a franchise based on a century-old property that no one much remembers anymore. One of the film's stars, Willem Dafoe, who played a Martian warrior named Tars Tarkas, is still baffled by the critical and commercial indifference the film received.

With the novelty of Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing the same character now worn off after the unveiling of the first "Looper" trailer, all eyes turn to the film itself and its upcoming release. Marketing has been a bit of a mixed bag so far, and the latest peeks don't change that assessment, with an interesting new look at supporting players Jeff Daniels and character actor Noah Segen paired with a disappointingly nondescript poster from across the Atlantic.
