Ever since "Sin City" proved to be a robust hit on its release in April 2005, talk has percolated about a sequel. After all, the film was relatively inexpensive to make, and there were plenty more stories from Frank Miller's source material comics that could lead to another film. But between the ups and downs of the Weinstein Brothers' Dimension Films, the busy-ness of co-director Robert Rodriguez, and the difficulty of re-assembling the all-star cast, it was much-discussed, but never quite came together.

Clearly, Jack Black made one too many "Gulliver's Travels" or "A Big Year" -- in the last twelve months or so, the comic star (who just released a new record under his Tenacious D guise) has veered mostly away from big studio comedies to more interesting sounding indie-type projects, like Richard Linklater's recent, and very charming "Bernie," prospective Michael Winterbottom project "Bailout," and Charlie Kaufman's "Frank or Francis." And now, there's another one on his dance card that sounds pretty promising, all in all.

It seems barely a week goes by without it being announced that Liam Neeson is attached to play some kind of badass. Ever since "Taken" renewed his stardom, he's been a busy bee, punching people (and wolves) in everything from "The A-Team" and "Clash Of The Titans" to "The Grey" and the upcoming "Non-Stop." Only this morning saw images of Neeson giving bad-guys the what for in "Taken 2," the sequel to the original smash. So ordinarily, we'd be forgiven for greeting the announcement of a new hardboiled crime thriller starring the Irish actor with a roll of the eyes.

Bond is back. Of course, Bond has been been back 21 times since "Dr. No" kicked cinema's longest-running continuous franchise off fifty years ago, but the financial difficulties of MGM seemed to be one of Ian Fleming's superspies most deadly foes. Fortunately, Bond survived, as he always done, and his latest entry, "Skyfall," is the most anticipated we can remember, thanks to a script from "Hugo" writer John Logan, Oscar-winner Sam Mendes in the director's chair, and a cast that includes Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw and Albert Finney backing up Daniel Craig as the movies' secret agent.

As the release of “Prometheus,” Ridley Scott’s first sci-fi movie in 30 years, quickly approaches, the journeyman director is opening up about his return to the genre, sharing details about his upcoming “Blade Runner” sequel, and dropping hints about what he’s going to be working on with Angelina Jolie. Plus, a new international "Prometheus" poster has arrived that abandons much of the mystical approach of the previous posters and goes with something everyone can appreciate: spaceships blowing up.

Hot on the heels of the announcement that David Cronenberg’s wildly anticipated adaptation of Don DeLillo’s “Cosmopolis,” starring Robert Pattinson as a disaffected non-vampire millionaire on a very strange 24-hour odyssey through Manhattan, has secured a June 15th release date in England, we now get a British trailer and poster for the picture. Neither are terribly new, keeping with the already-seen promotional materials. But that doesn’t mean we’re any less stoked.
