"It's not the L. Ron Hubbard story," Philip Seymour Hoffman told Entertainment Weekly in last week's issue. "[Scientology] was one of the bigger movements at the time, but there were a lot of movements at that time. There's nothing about how I'm behaving or talking that echoes [Hubbard]." And while the bigger thematic arc of the film is beginning to show its colors, it seems pretty clear to us that Joaquin Phoenix is being audited in this new clip from the film.

Welcome to Hollywood Michael Roskam. The director made waves with his Oscar-nominated "Bullhead" last year, and is now seeing the buzz turn into some palpable projects. Last week HBO ordered up a pilot of "Buda Bridge," a futuristic crime series he'll direct, with Michael Mann producing, and now he's stepping into his first bonafide Hollywood film, with some more big names backing him up.

One: don't read any further unless you've already seen "The Dark Knight Rises." And if you haven't, ask yourself: what's the deal? There will be major spoilers throughout this post. OK? Good. Let's move on and not throw eggs at David Cronenberg for a second.

Toldja? It was earlier today that we openly discussed whether or not IMAX was the new Hollywood darling that would trump the fading 3D, and now one of the biggest blockbuster directors of all time -- the man who pretty much invented it -- is looking to play with the format.

Every December, Criterion usually ends of the new year quietly, with not much of in the way of new releases. But they are making sure you'll be able to buy the cinephile in your life the best Christmas presents(s) ever, as their November lineup is, to put it politely, fucking epic.

For those of you have queued up to see "The Dark Knight Rises" three or four times now, and are ready to proclaim it as a filmmaking masterwork, David Cronenberg has got a news flash for y'all. “A superhero movie, by definition, you know, it’s comic book. It’s for kids. It’s adolescent in its core,” Cronenberg recently told Next Movie. “That has always been its appeal, and I think people who are saying ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ is, you know, supreme cinema art, I don’t think they know what the fuck they’re talking about.” Looks like the director brought some burn sauce with him from Canada on his press rounds for "Cosmopolis."
